Verminous House Clearance?

We consider a property to be classed as verminous when it contains material such as animal or human faeces, clinical waste, needles/syringes and drug related waste or paraphernalia, decaying food, stagnant water, urine and/or blood soaked soft furniture and beds. In general, rotting waste!

*Please Note* As most verminous properties present a serious danger to health, we recommend that this type of clearance should only be carried out by a professional company such as ourselves.

Cluttered House Clearance?

A cluttered house can be defined as a collection of many things lying around in an untidy mass. Also known as jumble, litter, mess or materials to be recycled, etc. Clutter usually relates to a disorder or reflecting to ones emotional state. With exception to creative clutter, in the most ordinary of circumstances, clutter most often implies a subconscious emotional blockage, or attachment to something or someone.

Did you know?
You could recycle up to almost half of your kitchen and garden waste by making your own compost.

Making your own compost is a way of recycling around half of your kitcken and garden waste. Producing a crumbly material that when turns organic, forms. Worms and bacteria break down carbon based materials.

Making your own compost is good and helps a lot with your garden, it helps your plants grow by returning nutrients to soil and this will help your plants grow. This way is cheaper and more effective. It is also more efficient for the environment than using peat. You will need a arge container of some sort or a compost heap to make your own compost.To make compost, you will need a compost heap or a large container of some kind in your garden or yard. It helps to have your own garden rather than a yard or living in a upstairs flat/apartment of somesort.

In some places authorites often arrange for biodegradable waste to be collected and they make compost at a desired location. Normally you would need to add a fair/equal amount of browns like cardboard and twigs along with greens such as vegetables grass cuttings and it usually would take a good few month even a year for waste to rot into the ground.

House Clearance Aberdeen Landfill Tax

The Landfill Tax levels of £7 per tonne for almost all waste could have serious implications for the Aberdeen house clearance industry. The casual observer may consider a tax on landfill as a stimulant for recycling; if it is more expensive to dump waste, then recycling may be seen as a cheaper alternative. However, concern has been voiced by members of the Aberdeen house clearance industry that the higher cost of disposing of house clearance waste will have to be passed onto the customer; the current estimate is that an extra cost of £12 will be incurred on every tonne of house clearance waste in the Aberdeen area.

This will filter down and raise everybody’s costs; with profit margins being so tight, smaller house clearance companies in Aberdeen may be forced to scale down or close their businesses completely, especially with site license charges, Duty of Care bureaucracy and possible extra battery handling license charges. Larger house clearance companies in Aberdeen will lose their customers; recycling rates may even shrink. So, legislation and taxation which, we are told, was designed to protect the environment may have the opposite effect. If someone had tried to come up with a way to directly tax recycling & house clearance, they would have been hard pressed to find a better system; or maybe that was the intention all along?

On a different note, the house clearance Recycling in Action Group has launched a new award scheme to recognise and reward recyclers in the Aberdeen area. They have also announced their adoption of a new Code of Practice to improve the environmental performance and responsibility of Aberdeen house clearance companies by encouraging the recovery and recycling of wood. Whatever their motivation, this marks an important step forward for wood recycling.

They have also developed innovative methods of using recyclate, using recycled wood in various ways to manufacture goods as diverse as hardwood replacement, ideal for the manufacture of garden furniture and windows and a slate like roof tile. They have already achieved a certain amount of success amongst industry, but their main problem seems to be encouraging consumer participation. One to watch anyway. Maybe all the house clearance companies should move into wood reclamation; with the extra taxes it might just be more financially viable.

House Clearance Aberdeen Recoverable Waste For Energy Conservation

Although everyone in the Aberdeen house clearance industry obviously has vested interests in the promotion of recycling and recovery as ‘best possible options’, we almost always advocate the commercial option as opposed to an artificial reliance on recycling enforced by cumbersome legislation. Aberdeen house clearance companies are well known for their common-sense attitude to business; recycling has suffered too many times from over-enthusiastic applications of ‘sustainable’ environmentalism. Our domestic waste paper recycling industry was lucky to survive the fiasco of German paper recycling schemes which resulted in the UK paper market being flooded with ‘give-away’ imports. Therefore it is essential that we support recycling initiatives that are realistic and workable.

The Aberdeen house clearance industry has just issued briefing documents on the Government’s consultation paper ‘A Waste Strategy for England Scotland and Wales.’ It responds with caution to the Government’s statement that ‘materials that are recycled may be used many times, whereas materials from which energy or compost have been recovered, cannot be used again.’ It counters this by stating that energy conservation can often be more important environmentally than conserving materials. Also, ‘re-use or recovery processes that use more energy than they save are not environmentally sustainable. In some circumstances disposal in a well-managed controlled landfill site will be the best option.’

Their attitude to the use of recycled, secondary raw materials is also interesting. ‘The more material that is recycled, the more it will act like any other commodity in the market place. In other words, supply and demand will fluctuate over time.’ Their conclusion is that: ‘ Waste management systems will therefore need to be flexible so that material can be extracted at times when demand is high but stay in the mixed waste stream at times when demand is low.’ However, they insist that the house clearance industry makes use of secondary materials whenever it is environmentally and economically viable to do so and will continue to exploit opportunities to increase end-use markets. Although INCPEN obviously have their own agenda when it comes to house clearance recycling, their observations are valuable and could be a boon to our industry.

Whether you have inherited some property, following bereavement or simply just want to de-clutter, Foxtons House Clearance is waiting to help you through the process. Our respectful and reliable staff will always work hard to complete your house clearance to the highest standard possible with a minimum of disturbance to yourselves and any anyone else involved. Let us take the strain and make organising a house clearance simple, straight forward and easy for you.
