What are landfill sites?

Materials that are not recyclable or are not properly separated will generally end up in a landfill. A landfill is a very large holes built into certain designated spaces for that function.

Until a few years ago, the waste was piled up in the places designated to be dumps, but today in modern and well-managed landfills, large holes are built in which the garbage is buried, with a system of layers that isolates the waste. of the air and water, which has significantly reduced the contamination of the environment by contact with toxic residues. However, landfills still represent an important source of pollution that affects the environment and human beings.

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.

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.

  1. I am a lady in my late 70s and visited Waldo Road at 4.30pm today (Wednesday, 4th October). I needed to dispose of some waste wood which a friend had kindly loaded into my car. I am unable to navigate the steps to the containers. I explained VERY BRIEFLY to the young operative on the gate that I would appreciate help. He was the epitome of courtesy and kindness. He checked my rubbish (in my boot) and explained where to park. He said he would send someone to help me or would come himself. He was as good as his word. I hardly had time to park before one of his colleagues was there to assist me. Please commend both of them for their excellent customer service. It was greatly appreciated. They were a credit to you.
