House Clearance Paisley & The Recyclables Market

House Clearance Paisley recyclables have hit record lows. Many house clearance owners in Paisley & the rest of the UK for that matter report that the current situation is the worst in the last forty years, and if you take today’s overheads into account, the worst ever.

Most house clearance operators would probably agree that a small percentage of waste that would normally be recycled is being sent to landfill instead of being separated at source for recovery, as the value of the material is not sufficient to encourage separation, storage, collection, transportation and processing overheads.

A spokesman for House Clearance Paisley described the current situation as ‘horrendous’, explaining that a lot of house clearance waste is not entering the recycling chain at all due to charges/lack of value. “As some suppliers are being charged for their material, rather than being paid, many are not bothering to separate their house clearance recyclables from their waste. All their arisings may well be going into the same waste container,” adding, “All the niceties of recycling and waste minimisation have gone out of the window.”

Low volumes and low values for are posing a serious threat to the viability of many waste transfer operators, while small house clearance businesses are finding the profit margins unworkable. Redundancies are predicted throughout the house clearance trade, while some waste transfer recycling stations could be moth-balled or closed down. Operators at every stage of the recycling chain are being hit, from the totters normally collecting secondhand furniture and such at civic amenity sites to the larger nationwide house clearance companies.

One operator wanted to make it clear that large processors are not pleading poverty without reason, and points out that although house clearance recyclables are still being exported, the prices paid for it are at a record low. In addition, operators are suffering from the low volume caused by the low prices and reduced manufacturing recyclable arisings, and ultimately are finding it increasingly difficult to sell the material they produce.

Both large and small house clearance firms are struggling as never before. House clearance recyclables have traditionally been recycled on the strength of their value – now overheads and low material value are hitting the market structure. As one Paisley House Clearance member of staff said , in these ‘desperate times’ we can only console ourselves with the fact that the market will eventually adjust itself.

Whatever happens surely it will always be better to recycle house clearance waste than to landfill it. The latest market disaster does however raise the question, will the house clearance industry have to adapt to survive?
