how to dispose of roof tiles

I’m replacing two roof tiles. Can I throw these tiles in an ordinary bin? Should they go in a recycling bin? Or are roof tiles the sort of material that need to be disposed of with a unique waste disposal approach?

"If it was more then 2 I would recommend skip hire. For example, if it was a full house roof."

"If they are concrete they should either be disposed of using a skip as normal or if you can transport them to a recycling yard do it that way as it’s free."

"The correct way is to bring them to your local tip/environment disposal or if you have a large amount call a local reclaim and you might be able to sell them thanks"
