Future of Sheffield’s Waste Recycling Centres Uncertain, Report Rubbish Removal Sheffield

A recent article in the local newspaper the Sheffield Star reported that a major shake-up was needed at a number of the Sheffield based waste recycling centres, with Union bosses suggesting that they would be better off being taken over by a local charity after a long running dispute. The paper reported that industrial action had been held at the five centres last year, which are operated by the sub-contractor The Green Company on behalf of Sheffield Council and Veolia, over pay, conditions and claims of bullying. The action, however, has been suspended for negotiations since November last year.

The Green Company No Longer a “Responsible Provider of Public Services”

Sheffield Council said that it would be seeking action, and that the local authority “could no longer have confidence” in the ability of the Green Company to manage the centres, or act as a “responsible provider of public services.”

Although profit from The Green Company goes to the charity Salvaire for intended use as grants from charities, GMB has controversially revealed that 35 per cent of the budget in fact goes on management costs and wages. The GMB organiser at Sheffield Council, Peter Davies said: “It is a charity model that isn’t working – the trustees are in London, it is faceless. We need a Sheffield charity run by the people of Sheffield, delivering a service for Sheffield.”

Household Waste Recycling Centres in Sheffield

There are several different site locations throughout Sheffield that are used for the disposal of waste. Household Waste Recycling Centres, which are more commonly known as tips and dumpits, allow Sheffield residents to safely dispose of a variety of different waste items, such as garden waste, furniture, including sofas, beds and mattresses, and electrical equipment including fridges, freezers, TVs, light bulbs and batteries. It is recommended by the local council, however, that a skip should be hired for renovation or construction waste, rather than taking this to a recycling centre.

I needed my garage cleaning and found these guys on the internet. It was a great service from beginning to end. Tom who answered the phone was very polite and accommodating to my needs. I work shifts so I explained to Tom that it needed the rubbish collecting after 11 and before 1 due to my shift and sleep patterns! We arranged a time off 11.30, the lads who did the job turned up on time as agreed and were polite. They were real hard workers and cleared the garage in no time at all. All in it was a really professional and efficient service. I would definitely use them again and recommend to friends.

Highly recommended. Having been let down by Veolia, who wouldn’t pick up the rubbish, supposedly because of access to my property, I was delighted that it was no problem for this company. Tom very trustworthy and straightforward on the phone. They did exactly what they said they would do and for a very fair price too.

These guys were brilliant. They were very fast and efficient at replying to my initial query, quoting and carrying out the job (garage clear out ready for house move). I can’t really say if their prices are comparable to others as I’ve not used a company for this before but I thought they were reasonable.

Had these guys clear an outbuilding and despite them charging per hour, they were like machines and got the job done in no time! Cheaper than we have had previously - by a marginal amount granted, but their service was far superior, so all in all very competitive! Turned up exactly when arranged, extremely pleased with them and would DEFINITELY use again!!

Excellent service, quick and efficient nothing was too much trouble. Arrived on time professional and courteous. This was a house clearance after our tenant left the property in a disgusting state, the guys cleared everything saved us time in getting the property back on the market and money and effort in having a skip. Great job highly recommend.

I had no trouble booking a slot when I needed and the guys turned up exactly on time. They were cheerful, friendly, speedy and belpful. So much better than hiring a skip. Everything was gone within fifteen minutes. Would definitely use again and thoroughly recommend.
