As we handle large amounts of waste and rubbish regularly, it’s very important to us that we recycle suitable materials. Our expert team here at Greenleaf Clearance take pride in sustainability, we go the extra mile to ensure items are disposed of responsibly and correctly.
The Waste Issue We Are Currently Facing
The human race has progressed tremendously over the past 50 years. However, with the progress came a cost, the creation of plastic and other manmade materials that can take up to 500 years to decompose. The world produces over 350 million tonnes of plastic annually, which is usually disposed of after it’s served its purpose to store items.
The effects of waste dumping and improper disposal can cause the following; Polluted soil, leaking hazardous chemicals into grown food, and air pollution, releasing toxic chemicals such as dioxins when the plastics are incinerated. Polluted oceans, killing marine life that eat plastic or get stuck in it. These are a few examples of the impact of improper waste disposal which is why we ensure and maintain the most sustainable disposal practices.
How We Do Our Part
The waste and clutter we collect from properties gets stored in our lorries for disposal. However, we tend to deal with wooden materials and fabrics more than plastics through our house clearance removals in Sussex. We section and sort each material into categories, disposing of them separately and sustainably. We hold a scrap metal dealer’s licence offering you money on any alloys you want to get rid of. We also hold the Environmental Agency Waste Removal Licence, allowing our expert team to collect and responsibly dispose of your waste.
What You Can Do
As a homeowner, you likely deal with plastic daily. Common examples include food packaging, once you have used the food the plastic serves no other purpose. Recycling all plastics you handle is a great way to help the planet and environment, as the waste can be reused for other purposes. Recycled plastics make an immense contribution to environmental sustainability. Mechanical recycling involves softening used plastics with heat and reforming the material for another purpose. So if you have plastic that needs disposing of, always throw it in the recycling bin. It helps the world more than you think.
