Why Peterborough fly tipping rates are so high and how to report it. As well as avoiding rogue waste carriers and using safer alternatives.
Whether you’re clearing a house after the death of a relative or friend, you’re moving house, or you’re getting a property ready to rent, you’re likely to have an assortment of unwanted items that need to be disposed of. There are a variety of options for getting rid of rubbish and junk, and as a house clearance company working throughout Sheffield, Doncaster, Rotherham, Worksop and Chesterfield, Clearance and Clean Up have come up with a few ways that you can do so.
When you’ve got a lot of junk lying around that’s not fit for the charity shop, Ebay or Gumtree, you may decide to make a trip to your local skip and get rid of it all there and then. If you’re able to cram it all in the boot of your car then that’s great, but bigger loads may require a few journeys. Alternatively, you could to look into hiring a van, but obviously there will be a fee involved and you’ll still have to do all the lifting and shifting yourself.
Another alternative is to contact your local council and arrange a bulky waste collection. Generally, this is a really affordable service, but unfortunately they usually take at least a week to arrange. You’ll be limited to a maximum number of items, so if you do have a lot, it’s not the ideal solution. They also require you to put all of the items outside of the property as they won’t collect from inside, so that means you’ll be responsible for shifting everything outdoors too.
Hiring a skip is another way that you can dispose of unwanted items. Depending on the size of skip you need to hire, they can be quite expensive, and you also need a skip permit if you plan to have it parked on the road. But again, hiring a skip means that you’ll have to do all the lifting and shifting yourself, which may be a big job if you’re trying to get large items into a skip that’s parked outside your property.
The other alternative is hiring a house clearance company in Sheffield such as Clearance and Clean Up. House clearance companies are a great option if you want a hassle free way to get rid of unwanted items from a house clearance, and they’ll do all the lifting, carrying and shifting for you. Clearance and Clean Up can carry out full or part house clearances, and are able to take away single items or multiple truck loads. This service is available 7 days a week and, if needed, can be carried out after normal working hours.
