Frequently asked questions about Premier Metals Tong Road Scrap Metal Yard

What goes in the green recycling bin?

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.

To be sure of what you should deposit in your green container, you can contact your nearest recycling center and obtain more detailed information.

What goes in the brown recycling bin?

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.

Recycling symbols and what they mean?

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.

What time does the tip open near me?

The disposable materials that we generate in our homes, depending on whether they are treated correctly or not, end up in landfills or household waste recycling centers.

A landfill is a site designated to dispose of the waste we generate. Typically, at these designated sites, large holes are built into which garbage is buried.

The recycling centers or household waste recycling centers, are places where recyclable waste is collected, separated and laid up, to be later transferred to another area or facility for recycling or transformation.

How much recycling is actually recycled?

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.
