Did you know this about your local council tip?

By the way, did you know that at last count there were 855 household waste recycling centres in the UK? Also, that a recycling centre is often called a civic amenity site, HRWC or council tip? Although they are all council facilities open to the public, most are managed by commercial organisations on the council's behalf. Well known waste management companies operating in the UK include Veolia, Suez and Biffa.
