What a load of rubbish (clearance)
With spring coming, and decluttering becoming big news (as reported in our last blog), we are seeing a huge increase in the amount of rubbish clearance jobs customers are booking with us.
Waste is a big problem especially in larger cities like Bristol where fly tipping is an unsightly nuisance, and more importantly can cause a health hazard. There have been many reports in the local and national news in recent days of the scale of the issue in Bristol, with rat infestations being reported and Bristol City Council launching a project to tackle the issue. Fly tipping can be anything from dumping a mattress, or leaving a washing machine out on a street, to construction waste on a lay-by. The image above is courtesy of South Gloucestershire Council, who secured a 68 week prison sentence for the fly-tipper responsible for this pile. Find out more here.
There are a number of “rubbish clearance” companies out there, who could take your money and dump your waste in a beauty spot somewhere, and although they can be prosecuted if caught, the owner of the waste is still liable and fines go up to £50,000 or a 5 year prison sentence in extreme cases. So our top tip would be to always check that the company you use are a licensed waste carrier, and ask them where your waste will be going.
More people are looking for ways of disposing of their waste in a safe, responsible and environmentally friendly way. Mason Moves Bristol will collect your rubbish and dispose of it responsibly for you. It is quick, cost effective, and hassle free. We are a registered with the Environment Agency as a licensed waste carrier and have all of the correct insurances in place and available to view on request. Ask to see our waste carrier certificate and we will be happy to show you.
Our prices will vary depending on the amount and type of rubbish, however check out our instagram or facebook page for details of what it costs us to dispose of your waste. We will then add labour costs which includes us doing all of the heavy lifting for you. This is often cheaper than renting a skip and certainly more convenient that trying to remove the rubbish yourself. And we promise to always be transparent about how we are charging you.
Our waste removal services include:
Bulky Waste (e.g. fridges, sofas etc.)
Garden Waste – We always ensure this is taken for composting
Commercial Waste – if you run a business, we can take away and dispose of your waste correctly. If you are disposing of business waste yourself at a tip or a landfill, then the site must be licensed to take commercial waste. You will have to pay a gate fee and landfill tax. Let us take the hassle of this away for you.
