Frequently asked questions about Tullos Recycling Centre

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 is a landfill?

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.

Another option is to contact your nearest recycling center by phone or email.

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.

How much is it 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.

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.
