Considering Skip Hire?

Below is an example used by Town or Country when dealing with a
house clearance.

Average 3 bed house = at least 2 x 12 Cu Yard skips @ £180 to £200 each plus
plus landfill tax plus council licence fee.      Our clearances are less
expensive than average price of hiring that many skips.  More fits in a big van
than you can put into a number of skips. No guessing size required.  No hassle
of street licences. Other people can't fill it. No mess and unsightliness  Not
Limited to what you can put in it.

Need a commercial property cleared of its contents ?  

You need to commission a reputable firm and one with a proven capability.  In December 2014 we cleared the contents of the main Fire Station in York
and Easingwold Fire Station on behalf of North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service.

You want one that will take over the task in its entirety and complete it as agreed.

You want to know they comply with all necessary rules and regulations, and in an environmentally friendly way while recycling as much as possible.

Town or Country have already supplied exactly that service to the companies mentioned below and many others. We will happily supply you with
names of representatives of these firms who will recount their experience with us.
Past clearances show a 80% plus recycling rate of wood,
hardcore,  metal, glass, cardboard, neon lighting, paint,
fridges, textiles, TVs, batteries, etc at pro - recycling sites

Duty of Care for producers of Waste

You have a legal duty of care to ensure that the waste you generate  is
disposed of properly, and in accordance with the law.  Every organisation or
busineess is required to take reasonable measures to ensure that they only
transfer their waste to an authorised person. An authorised person is either a
Registered Waste Carrier, or site that holds a Waste Management Licence.

Businesses who fail to take reasonable measures, regardless of whether the
transfer led to the waste being fly tipped, commit a criminal offence.

When arranging any waste to be collected you should:

Ask the contractor if they are a Registered Waste Carrier, and for their
registration number
Confirm that they are registered with the Environment Agency by telephone on
08708 506 506, or online at

A strange situation, Customer Review in June and Testimonial

We were asked to give our opinion on a situation that Mr Ward was worried about.  Save
the Children
UK had been left a house, a Solicitor had commissioned a house clearance
without asking for a quote and received an exorbitant bill and paid it. Town or Country
were asked to give our opinion and received the following in thanks.

Dear Mr Hall,                                                                                  Friday, 22 June

Thank you very much for looking at this for us and for providing such comprehensive

We were struggling to see why anyone would instruct a company without at least getting a
rough quote in advance, and your email has confirmed our fears that we have been
significantly overcharged. We would have expected a similar fee to that as you have
outlined and will now back to the solicitors and tell them as such.

Many thanks again to you and Mr Douglas. We are most grateful. Should we have any
properties in the region again, we will be sure to instruct Town or Country Clearance.

Kind regards,
Tom Ward │ Legacy Case Manager │ Save the Children UK
