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.
