Frequently asked questions about St Andrews Recycling Centre

How much does it cost to take rubbish to the tip?

There are household waste recycling centers in all the municipalities of the United Kingdom, and surely there is one near your home, and now finding it is very easy! We have developed a special search form on our page so you can find the recycling center closest to you in minutes!

You just have to access the following link and enter your postal code or address.

To go to this page, you must click on the “Recycling center Search” button.

When does the recycling centre open?

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.

What goes in the blue recycling bin?

In the UK, recycling centers and rubbish collection services commonly use blue bins to identify dry waste such as:

  • Paper
  • Newspapers and magazines
  • Cardboard
  • 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.

What do recycling symbols 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.
