Recycling in Aberdeen
One of the most common questions we get asked is “what do you do with the items you collect from house and office clearances”, especially in Aberdeen (perhaps because we’re the new kids on the block!). So rather than allow two and two become five we thought we’d put pen to paper and let everyone know just what happens to their ‘good junk’ once its collected.
Recycling in Aberdeen
We carry out dozens of house and office clearances per month across Aberdeenshire from Bucksburn to Woodside and Kittybrewster to Hilton and, as you might imagine, collect a fair bit of usable furniture along the way. The easiest thing would be to take the items direct to a transfer station to have it recycled and as we (companywide) only use transfer stations with recycling rates in excess of 80% this would be perfectly acceptable. Everything is done with Recycling in Aberdeen in mind.
Re-using and Recycling in Aberdeen
We however are also big advocates of reuse as well as recycling and as such donate as much furniture, bric-a-brac, clothing and usable items to a large network of local charity within the proximity of our three depots in Aberdeen, Glasgow and Edinburgh. Rather than have items that are useable sent for recycling we are far keener to see these items donated and given a new home!
Companywide we annually divert in excess of 84% of everything we collect away from landfill so by using us, you’re not only getting back your valuable space but doing your bit for the environment too.
