Home Rubbish Waste Removal Bradford
Recent figures highlighted that Bradford was one of several local authority areas in Yorkshire and the Humber not hitting its recycling targets. Bradford Council’s rate of 34.6% in 2017/18 fell short of the national target of 50%, putting it 276 out of 353 areas. One of the contributing factors was believed to be cross-contamination, which was caused by homeowners putting items in the wrong bins.
To help improve their recycling rates, Bradford Council has introduced a number of new initiatives, including establishing a New To Me re-use service, door-to-door visits from recycling advisers, as well as volunteer Recycling Champions. They also run advertising campaigns on social media.
There are well over 200,000 homes in Bradford, so if members of the public make the right choices when it comes to recycling, rates could easily improve – and hiring Divert will always be one of those correct decisions.
Office Rubbish Removal Bradford
The city centre remains the key location for jobs in Bradford, particularly office-based employment. There are 33,500 roles located in the city – about one in every six jobs in the entire district. If you consider each office in Bradford will produce waste such as white paper, mixed paper, shredded paper, cardboard, furniture, plastic bottles, electrical equipment, food and drink cans, and more, there has never been a better time to consider a waste collection service such as Divert. Not only will it help businesses to reduce their carbon footprints, but it could improve their reputations, too.
Fridge, Washing Machine, Freezer and Tumble Dryer Disposal Bradford
There are over 200,000 homes in Bradford. When you realise that each one most likely has a washing machine, fridge/freezer and oven, a lot of white goods can end up in landfill.
Most people aren’t aware that white goods can be recycled, with around 70% of the material often being repurposed. Shockingly, white goods can take up to 1,000 years to decompose, so they should never be disposed of in landfill. Metals such as lead, cadmium and mercury can seep into the ground, making water supplies toxic.
Thousands of sofas unnecessarily end up in landfill every year, so it’s important to carefully consider how you dispose of your furniture in Bradford – especially if each of its homes has at least one sofa!
Most people don’t know that a great way to increase the chances of a sofa being recycled is to keep the fire safety labels on and all the original cushions intact. Most sofas are made up of materials and compounds which, when combined, are bad for the environment. However, if sofas are deconstructed properly, many parts can be reused or disposed of safely.
Mattress Disposal Bradford
Household waste recycling centres in the Bradford District will only accept up to four mattresses from each household per year, so if you’re looking to get rid of an old mattresses, Divert may be a better solution.
Where possible, try to avoid sending your mattresses to landfill, as they can take a staggering 80 to 120 years to decompose. Some, if not all, parts of your mattress will be recyclable, so it pays to hire a waste collection service who can handle this for you. According to the Furniture Recycling Group, Wembley Stadium could be filled five times with the 7.5 million mattresses that are disposed of in the UK each year.
