The recycling rate in the UK has increased in recent years, but so has the generation of waste.
The percentage that is recycled in the UK so far is approximately 45% of the waste generated.
The latest report from the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) indicates that the waste generated in British homes amounts to approximately 26 million tonnes of waste each year, of which only 12 million are recycled. The other 14 million tons end up in landfills.
Brown bins are not that common in the UK. However, if the town hall to which you belong has them, this is what you can deposit in these containers:
The brown containers are for mixed recycling in most of the country’s municipalities where this color is issued. These mixed recycling materials include:
- Plastic bottles
- Food cans
- Beverage cans
- Aerosol sprays
- Aluminum foil (including trays)
- Glass bottles and jars
However, you must make sure what type of materials you should deposit in your brown container by contacting your nearest recycling center directly, since in some municipalities the brown containers are intended for organic waste from the garden and food waste.
