When homeowners decide to perform or organise a house clearance, one area they often overlook involves the costs and fees associated with disposal. Whether you are downsizing, relocating or simply decluttering to create more space, understanding disposal is crucial. In this article, our house clearance London experts delve into disposal charges so that you are completely aware of what to expect.
Taking Your Waste To Landfill
One of the most common disposal sites for general waste includes landfill sites. Items and materials that cannot be reused or recycled typically end up in landfills. This waste is then compressed and buried to decompose over hundreds of years. Most council-owned landfill sites offer free entry however, certain materials cannot be freely disposed of. It’s important to look into the landfill site you plan on using before arriving with the waste as you may be entitled to pay to enter.
Recycling Your Waste
Whilst recycling is environmentally beneficial and encouraged, some facilities may charge for the disposal of specific materials. For example, tyres, electronics, mattresses and other bulky items will typically incur fees. These charges help to cover the expenses associated with the processing and treatment of your waste.
Hazardous/WEEE Waste Disposal
Unlike recycling centres and landfill sites, WEEE or hazardous waste sites will charge to dispose of your waste. This fee is usually calculated based on the harmful chemicals within, the size of the object and its weight. Due to the complexity and potential risks involved with this type of waste disposal, a number of regulations and charges will be in place. Ensure you understand the guidelines and fees for disposing of hazardous waste in your area.
