On the 28th July 2016, New Lanark in Scotland, will be hosting the BBC’s Antiques Roadshow. New Lanark is said to be one of the most aesthetically pleasing and historic settings that has ever been filmed for the Antiques Roadshow. It is a world heritage site illustrating industrial history, which includes an 18th century mill village and a team of highly knowledgeable experts to educate any visitors, answering any questions they may have, during their time visiting New Lanark.
2015’s Antiques Roadshows filming day, attracted an incredible 35,000 people to attended the day and bring their personal belonging which were of interest and anything they wanted a valuation for. These included mesmerising items, such as JFKs former jacket, an £80,000 musical penknife and a toy panda which once flew with the ‘Dambusters’ themselves. But, what was the most spectacular find of the day, was a sketch which was believed to have been undertaken by Picasso. This, however, was not the reason it was thought of to be so spectacular. It was, in fact, due to it having bought from a sale post house clearance for just a couple of pounds.
It’s incredible the amount of ‘stuff’ we all collect over the years, especially if we haven’t moved house for a long period of time. You never know what you could find gathering dust in your basement or your attic, especially if you are an avid collector or a secret hoarder! So, if you have either had enough of the excess clutter that you have been squirrelling away for that ‘just in case’ moment, or you have decided to move on to pastures new, then a house clearance team could be the answer to all of your prayers!

Tom Pickering, the owner of Clearance and Clean Up, is asked certain questions extremely frequently. So we thought, what better than writing an article in an attempt to answer those questions for you. We don’t want moving house or house clearances to be as daunting as people often think they are. They key to everything is to be as organised as is humanly possible!
In a nutshell, if you are disorganised (don’t know where anything is, where anything is going, don’t know what you do or don’t want to keep, haven’t emptied any cupboards, wardrobes etc., haven’t given any clear instructions to the clearance team before they arrive, haven’t asked neighbours for a access permission or cleared a route for the clearance team) then this will lead to clearance team having to be on site for much longer, which in return will, without doubt cost you more money! So, if you are wanting to be economical, be organised!

Risbury, a small village not normally known for interruptions, near Leominster, but on Thursday (10th September), this sleepy village was strangely interrupted. A house clearance team were undergoing a house clearance in Risbury when they found a World War II grenade. An area of Risbury was cordoned off when the grenade was cited amidst belongings in the middle of the house clearance and Police were summoned immediately to the address. A 25 metre radius around the house was taped off henceforth. Bomb disposal experts from the Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) attended the scene extremely promptly and assessed the bomb. Luckily, for this little village, the bomb assessment found the bomb not to be live and EOD announced that the grenade was empty. This story could have had such a different ending if the bomb had not been so, with dramatic impact for both the house owners and indeed this little village. But it was all thanks to the house clearance team who knew exactly what to do when they spotted this potential danger.

As experts in house clearance Sheffield services, Clearance and Clean Up have the sometimes unsavoury task of clearing houses that are in advanced stages of disrepair and full of rubbish! Take this unoccupied house in Sheffield, for example. As you can from the photographs provided, the house in question was incredibly dirty and full of unwanted possessions, household objects, and plenty of rubbish.
Our job was to fully clear the house of all the discarded items in the house, lifting and shifting it all out of the way so that the space could be thoroughly cleaned. Bags of rubbish were removed by our team, as well as food waste, old clothes and general household items such as bins and bathroom scales. As you can see from the photos, once our house clearance professionals had blitzed the place, removing everything and taking it away in one of our vans to be responsibly disposed of, the house looked quite different. Although far from liveable, and in need of some serious decoration and general care, the house is now an empty shell that can be turned into a home that can be lived in again.
As you can see, we even removed the old washing machine, as we have the capacity to take larger items such as this. It is actually illegal to take old electrical or electronic goods to landfill, as they can release toxins that have a negative impact on the environment. Therefore, it’s really important to make sure that the company that takes them away are WEEE compliant.
Clearance and Clean Up are WEEE compliant, and are able to offer a disposal and recycling solution for all electrical and electronic waste. We regularly collect a variety of items, including washing machines, as well as computers, LCD plasma and CRT monitors, games consoles, alarm systems and equipment, CCTV and security equipment, lighting, IT equipment, cookers and fridges, and air conditioning systems. Our service is a complete WEEE disposal services which also includes consignment notes where needed, processing of WEEE, disintegration to base metals, re-use of base metals, and re-use of IT equipment.
A massive anti-littering campaign has been launched in Sheffield in an attempt to clean up the city. Sheffield residents are being urged to ‘take pride in their neighbourhoods’ in order to prevent the thousands of tonnes of litter that is dumped and dropped on the streets of Sheffield every year. The appeal is also hoped to keep Sheffield’s parks and green spaces clean, of which there are over 800.
The campaign, called ‘Clean Sheffield’ was launched last week and will last approximately one year. The council hope that it will reduce the amount of rubbish that is being dropped all over the city, a problem that is particularly bad in parks and green spaces. According to the council, more than £100,000 per year is being spent by the local authority to deal with the littler problem in parks alone.
As rubbish removal and house clearance Sheffield experts, Clearance and Clean Up think that this campaign is a positive step in the right direction for the city of Sheffield. It’s such a shame that litter is such a massive problem and takes up so much time and money that could be spent elsewhere. Hopefully, with the right education, and with enough people setting a good example with regard to the responsible disposal of litter, the problem of litter in the city can be improved.
The parks that are particularly bad include Endcliffe Park at Hunters Bar and Devonshire Green in the city centre. They are regularly littered with rubbish, have overflowing bins, and discarded barbecues left on them. The cabinet member for parks Councillor Isobel Bowler said: “One of the things that we’re asking people to think about is when they take disposable barbecues to parks. If they don’t use bricks or a stand then it burns the grass and it does not recover. We want people to have fun in parks but also to think about keeping them clean.”
The campaign ‘Clean Sheffield’ will also praise the volunteers and groups who work hard to keep communities clear of rubbish and encourage more people to follow their example. According to the cabinet member for environment Terry Fox, there are many people who go out every day to collect rubbish locally. He said: “If everybody took a little bit more pride in their city and didn’t litter, that would make a massive difference.”
As well as educating children in schools and organising litter picks, the campaign is hoped to drive more people to report the problem and also to pick up rubbish if they see it lying on the ground. According to Councillor Fox, the issue of having more bins around the city would be ‘looked at’, as there are currently around 3,500 litter bins in Sheffield at the moment. He also said “This campaign is not about buying everyone a pair of litter pickers, it’s about capturing hearts and minds.”

Before you embark on your house clearance Sheffield mission, it’s important you hire a company that will be suitable for your needs. There are lots of ways that you could go about your house clearance, from skip hire services to man with a van. If you’re looking for a reputable house clearance company in Sheffield, here are a few tips that should help you with your choice.
A reputable house clearance company who transports or disposes of waste for others has to have a waste carriers licence issued by the Environment Agency. In fact, they’re committing an offense if they don’t, and can be fined up to £5,000. Also, waste carriers licences have an expiry date, so it’s important that you ask the company you choose if it’s in date and valid.
It’s also important to ensure that the company you choose has public liability insurance. This type of insurance protects you and your family, as well as the public, against damage to your property and to yourself. For example, if a house clearance company are moving a sofa out of the house and someone gets injured in the process, or something gets broken, you’ll be entitled to compensation.
When choosing a house clearance company to clear your property, ensure that their coverage area includes your property. Companies based further afield may charge more, or politely tell you that they are a bit too far away! For example, if you live in South Yorkshire, ensure that the company covers Sheffield, Doncaster, Rotherham and Chesterfield.
If you don’t want the hassle of moving all your unwanted items down stairs, outside, or to a convenient pick up area, why not choose a company who will do all the lifting and shifting for you? When you choose your house clearance company, simply make an enquiry as to whether they offer this as part of the service, and choose on that does.
It’s sometimes tricky to offer a customer an accurate quote over the phone, and you run the risk of the formal quote differing from it upon arrival at the site. That’s why it’s a sensible idea to choose a company that offers free site visits, so that you can get an accurate quote and make a decision from there.

It’s been well reported in local and national media that the amount of discarded rubbish littering the streets of the UK appears to risen dramatically. As rubbish removal and house clearance Sheffield experts, it’s clear that littering has become more of a problem, and that one of the possible solutions to this may be the education of young people to encourage them to take responsibility for disposing of rubbish correctly.
According to a recent article in the Sheffield Star, Nick Clegg, who is the current Sheffield Hallam MP, has visited High Storrs School in Bents Green, Sheffield, to talk about the Bin It! Campaign. The scheme itself aims to educate students about taking responsibility for litter, and has been developed by the chewing gum company Wrigleys, in partnership with the education consultancy Rapport. The Bin It! campaign is aimed at 11 – 13 year olds, and hopes to ‘encourage them to think about why people litter, reflect on their own behaviour and emphasise the importance of caring for their local area.’
Bin It! said “We use a team of actors to engage and educate young people about the problem of litter. This hands-on approach encourages pupils to make positive choices about the responsible disposal of litter in their community. Bin It! has a proven record of success, with results showing that a significant proportion of pupils think more about litter disposal having taken part in the session.”
Sheffield City Council have been also been working to reduce the amount of litter discarded in the city, imposing an instant fine of £75 for littering. The council issue fixed penalty notices to people who are caught dropping litter, and if they do not pay it, they will be taken to Court. It is also a criminal offence to drop litter or throw it from a car, and dog fouling in a public place can also result in a fixed penalty fine.
The local Council have also listed ways that residents can help to keep Sheffield tidy which include, not dropping litter on the streets, ensuring that dustbins and wheelie bins are not over filled, clearing up after your dog, and not disposing of household rubbish in litter bins. They also recommend teaching young people in the family to dispose of litter responsibly, echoing the message sent out by the Bin It campaign and Nick Clegg at High Storrs School.

A recent article on the website of a national newspaper caught our eye recently; a flat in Sheffield University’s Endcliffe Student Village has been named the most disgusting student flat in Britain. According to the article, 2C in the Froggatt Apartments at Endcliffe Village contains an indoor compost heap, empty beer cans, piles of rubbish, and a stolen traffic cone.
As experts in rubbish removal and house clearance Sheffield, Clearance and Clean Up see a great many flats and houses in need of a good clear out and clean, but we can’t say we’ve ever come across an indoor compost heap before! But students are notorious for being untidy and living in unsanitary conditions, to the point where it has become an ingrained cultural joke.
The images show a communal kitchen area strewn with week’s worth of dirty cooking equipment and utensils, empty bottles and left over, decaying food. The living room is littered with empty bottles of wine, beer cans, glasses and mugs, as well as playing cards – apparent evidence of drinking games before their nights out at the student union. However, they do have a large plasma screen TV, which sits on top of an empty beer keg.
One resident of the flat defended the mess by saying that the stacks of filthy cutlery and plates that have been turned into ashtrays 'adds character', while another admitted the only time the sink has been emptied was when someone urinated in it. It’s got so bad that even the cleaner refuses to enter the kitchen, calling it “a disgrace”. According to the article, the flat has failed its last 2 communal area inspections.
The University of Sheffield has an excellent reputation for its student flats, with the newly built Endcliffe Village housing more than 3,000 of the university’s students in a complex of flats and apartment buildings. An en suite single room in one of the flats in the Froggatt building costs students £5,294.94 for 42 weeks of the academic year.
Clearance and Clean Up have cleared many houses and flats over the years, including some that are much worse than this example! If you need a house clearance Sheffield, or are looking for the best way to dispose of rubbish or unwanted items, Clearance and Clean Up can help. We carry out full and part house clearances, and rubbish removal services, and are able to take away single items or multiple truck loads.
House clearance Sheffield services Clearance and Clean Up read an article in The Sheffield Star recently regarding rubbish problems in the city. The newspaper has recently reported on the rubbish strewn streets of a troubled Sheffield estate. The Page Hall estate has been plagued by serious litter problems in recent weeks, and extra staff have had to be drafted in to tackle the problems of fly tipping, litter and rubbish in the area.
According to the article, the residents of the estate are fed up and worried about the state of the streets, and fear that the workers brought in to sort the problem out are only ‘fire fighting’, rather than making a long term difference to the condition of the area.
As experts in rubbish removal and house clearance in Sheffield, it’s a real shame to see areas such as this suffering due to fly tipping and littering. Sadly, littering is a common problem in many areas and simply tidying up after people doesn’t address the root cause of the problem. Educating residents about the correct disposal of rubbish and litter is incredibly important, and learning about the effect of the littering on the community is important too.
According to the newspaper, the area has suffered since an influx of Roma Slovak families moved in to the area, and the way that they live has had a serious impact on the residents who have lived on the estate for years. Although the council is trying hard to make sure that educational work is taking place, the problem will not be solved ‘overnight’.
A resident of the area said that council staff cleared up a littered area of Hinde Street recently, but that just a day later the area had been fly-tipped with the contents of a skip, graffiti had been scrawled on the walls and a black bag of rubbish had been dumped. The resident said “This is an absolute disgrace to wake up to. When is the enough-is-enough mindset going to come to the forefront and let the tired, stressed folk here have a bit of peace, quiet and cleanliness.”
Nick Chaplin, environmental protection manager said: “If there is an occasion where we can just make contact with residents and talk to them about what we expect in terms of not dropping litter, and teaching their children not to do that, we will do so.”
