House Clearance Lanark Recycling Up To 95%

If the high recycling targets (up to 95%) are to be maintained by House Clearance Lanark as well as other house clearance companies, then recovery routes will have to be found for the flooring (Carpet) portion of house clearance waste. As an example of the problems likely in recycling one of the biggest sources of waste in a house you have to consider the current situation. There is only one company involved in carpet recycling from house clearances in the country: Northern based House Clearance Lanark.

We offer a Scotland wide collection and at the moment specialise in all floor coverings collected by other house clearance companies in Lanark & the rest of Scotland. However to cover our overheads we charge per carpet. So if your average house clearance company clears the flooring for 30-40 houses per year the costs would be very low when faced with the alternative waste transfer stations which over the year would cost triple the price to recycle.

They would have to physically separate the carpets from the other house clearance waste, which takes time and as we know time is money. So to fund flooring recycling house clearance companies would have to either charge the customer more, or as is becoming increasingly likely pay companies like us here at House Clearance Lanark for disposal. If this is the case then many small house clearance owners, who are generally hard-up individuals, will head down the road to the less environmentally concerned recycler who charges a lot less, or will just dump the flooring and let the council deal with it (and the council tax payer face the bill).

Recyclers Association President, Jackie Spall, in a recent letter to Association members. He asks: “Are Local Authorities aware of the important role house clearance services play in keeping our local communities clear of fly tipped waste & rubbish?” Both house clearance companies and scrap merchants often remove dumped washing machines, cookers, car batteries amongst many other items and thus benefit their local environment and save Council Tax payers money.

This subject was brought to Jackies attention when she applied for a special business rate reduction offered to rural businesses benefiting the local community. The Council turned her down as they considered her business to not be ‘of sufficient benefit’ and yet they list her recycling yard in their official list of disposal points for certain household wastes. Just last week Jackie reports that while she was picking up yet another abandoned rubbish load, a member of the public thanked her for her help, pointing out that the countryside would be littered with dumped house clearance rubbish if it wasn’t for people like her.
