How it works

Once you have chosen day and time, our friendly staff will give you a text or call around 30 minutes before arriving at your location. They will work swiftly under your direction as to what needs to be done. After removing your junk they will clean up after themselves allowing you to relax knowing your junk will be disposed of in a responsible manner.

WHAT HAPPENS TO THE REMOVED JUNK?


If suitable, some may be donated to a charity shop so that it can be re-used helping others

along the way.


WHAT IF THE JUNK ISN’T SUITABLE TO BE DONATED, THEN WHAT HAPPENS?


If it cannot be donated to charity, the junk is sorted into metals, plastics, wood, hardcore etc and taken to licensed recycling centres for disposal. All white goods such as televisions, washing machines, fridges etc are disposed of in accordance with the W.E.E.E.

(Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive) regulations.


PART OF WHAT WE WANT REMOVING MAY CONTAIN SENSITIVE INFORMATION.


All paper documentation is destroyed in accordance with the DIN6 standard, if we are removing computer equipment with the hard drive(s) still fitted the data is destroyed either with a multi-pass random data wipe or the hard disc are platters physically destroyed.


OK, SO WHAT IF IT CANNOT BE RECYCLED?


It is our aim to recycle as much of your junk as possible, currently we recycle more than 80% of our clients waste. Unfortunately there will always be some junk that cannot be recycled, if this is the case then it is taken to licensed waste transfer stations where unfortunately it generally ends up as landfill. Sometimes however it is turned into art…

THE WEEE MAN BY PAUL BONOMINI


What you see in the WEEE Man is more or less what one household gets through in a lifetime. We measured it by weight, looked at which items we could get hold of, then added a bit of artistic license. Artist Paul Bonomini put the sculpture together using the following items.
