Sycamore Cleaning Service offers a garden clearance service to domestic & commercial clients in Norwich. We clear gardens of general waste such as, pots, tools, furniture, ornaments and building materials. After we have finished you`ll have a nice garden to enjoy again.
Having a nice tidy garden creates a happier household for everyone. It could also add value to your property. A garden clearance is about making your garden look good, as well as making it safe for your family, friends and the planet for years to come. Allowing rubbish to build-up could attract rodents and unwanted animals. This makes your garden unsanitary and unsafe.
Unfortunately not all garden waste is recyclable. Garden waste that is recyclable, is called ‘green waste’. Items considered as green waste will consist of grass trimmings, weeds, leaves, and very small twigs for e.g. Green waste generally costs a lot less to dispose of... However items such as branches, plastic bags, fence panels, garden furniture, soil, bricks and plant pots are classed as ‘mixed general waste’ and cost more to bin. ‘Green waste’ generally costs at least half as much per tonne to dispose of compared to general mixed waste. That means it makes a lot of sense if you can separate your waste into two piles, before the day of clearance.
We Go Above & Beyond To Re-Cycle
Unwanted Items Are Auctioned/Re-sold For 2nd Life.
Disposing of waste is a big problem and it is becoming more expensive to do so. As a business we are charged £160 per 1 tonne of rubbish by trade waste centers. This does not include our labor. As a guide, one tonne of rubbish is roughly 4-6 washing machines in weight. With the above being mentioned we understand that clearing your garden may seem a very expensive job. However, we may find items of re-sale value, which can be deducted from the Garden Clearance quote. This saves our customers money, stops landfill and it saves the planet by re-cycling. A win, win in our books!
