HOME RENOVATION WASTE IN PLYMOUTH

Once your home renovation starts, you will quickly produce a lot of waste. If you cannot dispose of the rubbish yourself, you’ll need to use an approved and licenced waste disposal company or run the risk of a considerable fine. Beware of some cheap disposal services lurking on some online marketplaces offering to dispose of your waste for rock bottom prices. For some unsuspecting homeowners, their waste can end up in a back lane or on Dartmoor, leading to a hefty fine and a criminal record. Always use a registered waste carrier to get rid of your trash, so it doesn’t end up being fly-tipped by an illegal company.

    Getting rid of waste yourself

    You’re not allowed to take large amounts of waste to your local recycling centre if it is considered commercial waste. The rules about getting rid of waste at local government places are strict. However, the rules are constantly changing, so it’s always worth asking your local recycling centre before you plan your trip.

    Chelston Meadows – Soil, Rubble and Plasterboard

    Recently, Chelston Meadow has scrapped the new charges (in effect from 26th January 2022), meaning residents who bring soil, rubble, plasterboard and asbestos to the recycling centre would have to pay. Although this is a welcome decision for residents of Plymouth, waste disposal companies are still suffering increased disposal fees for commercial waste.

    Resell or Giveaway for Free:

    Before you dispose of old slabs, roofing tiles, or entire kitchen and bathroom sets, consider listing them for free on Gumtree, Facebook Market Place and E-bay or donating them to a worthy cause. Many of the items you have could still be usable, and donating or selling them save you a fist full of cash in the long run.

    Repurposing Waste:

    Repurposing is a fun way to get creative with your waste and create new pieces for your home. Turn that wooden door into a coffee table or headboard; anything is possible with some imagination and elbow grease. Additionally, that old floorboard sanded back and varnished would make a lovely set of solid shelves. When repurposing your waste, your only limit is your imagination.

    Using Skips for Rubble Removal:

    The easy way to get rid of building waste is by using skips. Skips come in various sizes, can be delivered and collected for you, and can be packed to fit a lot of rubble. It’s always worth comparing prices as sometimes a man and van service can come in at a competitive rate and load the waste for you, saving you the hassle of loading a skip.

    Another thing to consider when booking a skip is where you will put it, as you may need permission from your local authority. If you have your driveway or private piece of land, you are probably onto a winner.

    Also, check with the hiring company what items you cannot dispose of in your skip; these include asbestos, tyres, refrigerators and freezers, Liquids such as paints, oils or solvents, Televisions Light bulbs, Chemicals and Plasterboard.
