Home Rubbish Removal and Disposal Middlesbrough
There are over 40,000 households in Middlesbrough. The average home produces more than a tonne of waste each year, much of which ends up in landfill unnecessarily, including lots of old paint tins. The government recognises that as a nation, we must do more to reduce waste. EU directives aim to reduce waste by as much as 50% by reusing, recycling and repurposing waste where possible. Divert is a way for the people of Middlesbrough to do this quickly and efficiently.
Office Waste Removal and Disposal Middlesbrough
There are thousands of privately owned offices, commercial properties, and industrial units in Middlesbrough, found throughout the city centre and in dedicated estates in areas such as the South Bank.
With so many businesses operating within Middlesbrough, it stands to reason that tonnes of office equipment are replaced and thrown away every year. Office equipment like chairs, tables, desks, and filing cabinets are typically made from materials including plastic, wood, metal and foam, each of which can be fully recycled. Businesses in Middlesbrough should aim to recycle old furniture where possible – and thankfully, Divert makes this easy.
Washing Machine, Tumble Dryer, Fridge and Freezer Disposal Middlesbrough
There are 40,000 households in the Middlesbrough area, which means there are thousands of washing machines, fridges and tumble dryers that need to be replaced each year. The average fridge lasts around 13 years, although equipment failure, lack of maintenance, or overuse can result in appliances requiring more regular replacement.
White goods need to be disposed of correctly because they contain hazardous chemicals and metals. These materials are toxic, and if sent to landfill, could potentially end up in the water supply. If you fail to correctly dispose of kitchen appliances, you could be breaking the law. It’s, therefore, a good idea to use a service like Divert to safely and ethically recycle your old white goods.
Sofa Disposal Middlesbrough
Divert offers an on-demand sofa collection service in Middlesbrough and its surrounding areas. In the UK, sofas, duvets and mattresses take up more than 26.2 cubic metres of landfill space each year.
On average, sofas last between seven and 15 years. However, most people tend to replace their sofas before they become structurally unsound. Families with pets or young children generally replace sofas more regularly due to stubborn stains or marks – even when the sofa could be repurposed or reused elsewhere.
Divert’s network of furniture projects allows you to get rid of your old unwanted sofa by donating it to charity, repurposing it for use elsewhere, or upscaling it. It’s a convenient way to dispose of old furniture while giving it a new lease of life.
Mattress Collection and Disposal Middlesbrough
Want to get rid of a mattress in Middlesbrough? With Divert, you can arrange for an on-demand collection of old mattresses which will be disposed of sustainably, in accordance with government guidelines.
Mattresses contain foam and steel, which can be recycled and repurposed. They also contain gaseous chemicals known as volatile organic compounds, which come from the polyurethane used to manufacture the mattress. It is therefore important to correctly dispose of end-of-lifecycle mattresses.
Bulky Waste Collection Middlesbrough
Bulky waste is domestic rubbish that’s too large for your standard bin collection. This includes carpets, couches, tables, recliners, white goods, plumbing fixtures, consumer electronics, construction waste (such as bricks or roof slates), and more. Divert is capable of collecting and recycling all forms of bulky waste from your home, and ensuring it is responsibly handled.
