York is home to many offices among the narrow, winding streets, overlooking the River Ouse, and across business parks outside the city walls. There are more than 22,000 companies in York. Rail, tourism, and hospitality are at the heart of the cathedral city, but other leading sectors include financial and professional services and digital, creative, and IT. 

These industries and more all own or rent office space across York. Moving out of an old office, into a new one, or updating your existing premises is a big job. At Divert we provide office clearance for York businesses of any size in any industry anywhere in the city.

How office clearance in York works

Get a free quote for office clearance in York with Divert. Let us know the types of items you need removing, a rough estimate of how many, where your office is and when you want your waste collected. If you’re happy with the quote based on this information, we can book your York office clearance.

On the day one of our purple Divert vans or trucks will come to your office at the agreed time. Our licensed waste carriers will then load up the waste from your office for effortless removal. The type of vehicle and number of trips we make will depend on the amount of waste you need collecting.

They’ll then transport the waste to a local York recycling facility. Here it’s sorted by type and sent for recycling separately based on the waste type and materials. The likes of old office desks may be broken down and the wood recycled, while electrical items are separated into individual components for recycling – such as metal and plastic parts.

At Divert we aim to recycle and reuse as much of your old office furniture and waste as possible in York. This avoids adding to landfill sites to help protect the local York environment. Your waste may be reused, recycled, converted into energy, or incinerated.

Local recycling centres in York

The main recycling centres in York are Hazel Court Household Waste Recycling Centre (HWRC) and Towthorpe and Strensall HWRC. You can only take commercial waste to Hazel Court HWRC. So, if you want to dispose of any items from your business office yourself this is the best option.

Some waste from domestic offices is accepted at both HWRCs, such as electrical equipment. The City of York Council also offers a bulky waste collection service for households but there is a charge. And you need a permit to visit either HWRC in a larger vehicle or with a trailer.

Fantastic service all round

Alyssa dealt with my initial online query and gave me all the information I needed. Michael made a site visit to assess what was required as we had a full office with desks, chairs, cupboards, electricals etc. to clear.
Our office is on the 1st floor and we need to clear everything using the lift. The 3 people who came on the day (I only got Carl’s name unfortunately) were fantastic – really friendly, knew what they were doing in terms of dismantling all the desks etc and got everything done in the time specified.
Really happy with the service we received from everyone we dealt with and would definitely recommend Divert Waste.
