    how to dispose of roof tiles

    Roofers

    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 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."
