House Clearance Glenrothes Meets Recycling Targets

The fall in waste paper prices which has affected mainland Britain is reported to be causing major problems in Scotland. All the major paper mills have cut back on waste paper purchasing, which has led to paper collections being curtailed. Prices do not justify the export of waste paper to England. Alan Graham of house clearance Glenrothes says that stability is needed or paper recycling in Scotland could face disaster: ‘local recyclers & house clearance companies need to know that they can sell their waste paper.’

He also cited other problems encountered by Scottish recyclers: such as steel can recycling, which is hugely difficult due to the costs involved in shipping them to the processing plant in England. This problem is increasingly pressing as consumers often place steel cans in aluminium can banks, especially as three-quarters of all drinks cans are now steel. Another difficult recycling area is plastics reclamation. Agricultural films are being recycled, but plastic bottles are not being reclaimed as no one has the necessary cutting and washing plant for processing.

Textile recycling in Scotland seems to be one of the main areas of success: there are now over 40 sites in use for textile banks. Glass recycling is another success: over 7,500 tonnes of Scottish glass a year is being transported to Glasgow for processing. Used oil collection schemes are also operating successfully.

The local authorities in the area have helped recycling by providing sites for collection points, but have unfortunately not been able to provide much financial input. House clearance Glenrothes predict a change for the better due mainly to the Landfill Tax and the government recycling targets.

It seems that the problems Scottish recyclers face are similar, but perhaps more extreme than those English recyclers suffer from. Even marginal price changes can dramatically reduce the cost-effectiveness of commercial recycling due to transportation and lack of processing. It would be a great shame if Scotland became the ‘poor relation’ of recycling in this nation. House clearance Glenrothes manage to recycle upto 80% of all house clearance waste.
