Sycamore Cleaning Service offers a house clearance service to domestic & commercial clients in Norwich. We clear household furniture, books, large appliances, electrical items, diy equipment and most power tools. We also clear antiques, ornaments, brick-a-brac, toys, games, kitchenware, clothes, shoes, blankets, bedding, curtains/blinds, most everyday waste and much more!
We pride ourselves in re-cycling up to 90% of waste. Sending re-usable items to landfill sites is the absolute “last option” for Steven & Clair at Sycamore Cleaning. Generally most items from House Clearances end up finding life again with someone else, a charity shop or auction. We frequently donate items to many other charities such as; Leeway, St Martin`s and Shelter... We also donate to schools, colleges, adult education centers and self-help groups who need equipment or tools for further education, support and development.
Any items that are not accepted or wanted by charities or schools are then placed in to a local auction for someone else to enjoy and find life again. Any items “not sold” at auction are then considered for waste. Even now the waste is responsibly sorted into piles ready to be sent to the recycling center.
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 house may seem an expensive task. However, we may find items of re-sale value, which can be deducted from the House Clearance quote. This saves our customers money, stops landfill and it saves the planet by re-cycling. A win, win in our books!
