Frequently asked questions about Millom Recycling Centre
Recycling symbols are those images that appear on all kinds of products, articles and packaging so that consumers know what type of waste they are (recyclable or non-recyclable) and what material they are made of.
Recycling symbols are important because they guide us to manage our waste well. However, there are some products and packaging that have not been properly labeled and do not contain a recycling label.
If you have waste that you don’t know how to classify, contact your nearest recycling center.
The UK recyclable waste service is a municipal service. However, it is only for materials generated in homes.
The cost of commercial materials is variable and depends on many factors:
- Location: in more frequented industrial estates, costs are usually lower than in rural places that are more difficult to access.
- The type of waste: some materials, such as toxic waste, need special treatment so they use more resources to manage them, and therefore their price is high.
- Volumes: the greater volume of waste you generate, the higher the price you have to pay for it. However, if the amounts produced are tons, you may get a reduction in the payment for handling your waste.
It is better to contact your nearest recycling center by phone or email to check the final cost.
In the UK, recycling centers and rubbish collection services commonly use blue bins to identify dry waste such as:
- Newspapers and magazines
- Unwanted mail
- Telephone directories and catalogs
- Cereal boxes (without the plastic liner)
- Egg cartons
- Greeting cards
- Drink and food cans
However, not always the container for dry recyclables is blue. Some municipalities use red recycling containers or some even issue blue and red containers for this type of material.
To have precise information, you can consult your nearest recycling center.
To visit a household waste recycling center you need to book an appointment in advance. To book an appointment at your nearest recycling center, you can visit their website and book your appointment online.

Green recycling bins are typically the designated bins for depositing recyclable glass materials. However, this may vary depending on the municipality in which you are located. For example, in some municipalities the green color in the containers is used for dry recyclable materials.
It’s important not to confuse containers for glass recyclables or dry recyclables with wheelie bins that are for green yard waste.
