House Clearance Middlesbrough Costs & Prices In The Recyclable Waste Market

The main news on House Clearance Middlesbroughs mind is the dreadful state of the recyclable waste market. Prices have plummeted still further: since January prices have fallen by up to 44% for plastics; 23% for mixed metal; 33% for cardboard and 22% for mixed wood. Waste transfer stations in Middlesbrough & around the UK are having to pass on the lower prices they are facing both in the UK and abroad to the smaller scrap collectors and house clearance companes here in Middlesbrough. Scarp collectors could start to charge for scrap rather than pay for it, with motor vehicle dismantlers amongst other groups desperate to cover their overheads.

The main reasons behind the depressed prices lie in the realms of economics: the recession in South East Asia hitting demand, the strength of Sterling and the relative weakness of other currencies making scrap exports uncompetitive, the decline in domestic manufacturing industry also damaged by the strong Pound. The country also seems to be still in a recession, which as usual the recyclable markets have been the first to react to. House clearance industry experts have been predicting this downturn for some time. Now the rest of the country seems to have caught up. It is perhaps ironic that this depressing state of affairs is reaching a head when a new government group is looking at ways of developing markets for recycled materials.

New House Clearance Middlesbrough group to develop markets for recycled materials

The House Clearance Middlesbrough group has been set up to boost demand for recycled materials: paper, plastics, glass and metals. The idea behind the decision is brave but we can only hope that it is also effective. Adopting the relatively successful Scotland house clearance method as a model could prove useful. If you examine the list of house clearance members in the British group, there is an unfortunate lack of materials industry representatives. If the Government wants to encourage markets for recycled materials, they should consult the market experts or speak to us here at House Clearance Middlesbrough. It would be a shame if this excellent idea did not benefit the recycling industry, and instead just filled consultants’ pockets.
