Frequently asked questions about St Albans Recycling Centre

What is the recycling symbol?

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 is household waste recycling centre?

Recycling centers vary in the waste materials they receive. Most centers are for household waste only and do not accept commercial waste or material waste from business activities.

The residues that the tips usually accept are:

  • Yard waste
  • Wood and chipboard
  • Paper
  • Metal
  • Electrical items
  • Plastics
  • Textiles and clothing
  • Shoes
  • Bottles and glass jars

On our website you can find your nearest recycling center and see what kind of rubbish you can take. You will also be able to find some categories of items.

Where is my nearest rubbish tip?

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.

Where can I take my clothes for recycling?

If you have recently cleaned out your closet and you have clothes that you no longer use and you are thinking of throwing them away, you can check on our website which is the nearest recycling center where you can leave clothes, textiles and shoes that you no longer use.

You can find this information by choosing the category Cloth & Fabrics. There you will see the list of recycling centers with contact information: addresses, phones, e-mails.

You just have to and put your postal code or address.

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.
