Environmental Benefits of Recycling Items from House Clearance Sheffield

There are several reasons why you may be looking for a Sheffield house clearance service. It may be that you have recently moved and need your unwanted items taking away, or perhaps you just want to de-clutter. You may have lost a friend or a family member and need help clearing their home, or perhaps you are a landlord who needs to get a property into top shape for your next tenant.

Whatever the reason for the house clearance, it is important to ensure that whoever carries out the clearance does so in a way that is as environmentally friendly as possible. There are many benefits to recycling, many of which are outlined below.

Landfill compactorReduce Landfill with House Clearance Sheffield

According to the Environmental Association, “Landfill is still the principal means of managing most of the waste, although land filling of municipal waste has decreased (in England) from 79% in 2000/01 to an estimated 55% at the end of 2007.” Targets set by the Landfill Directive aim to reduce the amount of waste going into land fill by implementing a Landfill Tax in 1996, but the amount of waste going into landfill remains a problem, with approximately 44% of industrial and commercial waste ending up here.

Sending items to landfill may have been the easy option for many in the past as it was cheap and there was plenty of space available in old quarries. But as this space began to run out, and the full effect of the biodegradable waste on the atmosphere was discovered, reusing and recycling waste became a top priority.
