Welcome to 2016 with a bang. The world markets continue to collapse and the waste market continues to raise its costs!! What next?
Clients are becoming unrealistic in regards price hikes in rubbish clearance. Although for the past three years I have tried to balance prices rises with recycling methods it has become almost unsustainable any longer
If trades people don't begin to charge the going rate for rubbish then we are going to see a huge rise in employing illegal and unlicensed fly tippers but be aware trades people if you get caught the penalties are more expensive than using a licenced company like A4 Ezy House Rubbish Clearance and you can not claim it back on your tax bill
Prosecuting rogue tradesmen is limited by lack of interest by the local authorities as they continue to hold onto their own jobs. RECENTLY the environment agency dropped the ball on a large quantifiable case of a rogue trader who inflicted millions of pounds worth of damage on the local area
If you can not catch the people who do illegal things out in the open what chance have legal clearance companies got when bogged down with continued EU legislation broadly reclassifying many pick ups in clearance as hazardous and charging higher and higher costs to the small independent companies
Change in this industry is becoming more and more difficult despite new technologies - you either want to recycle or continue to cripple the industry by legislation that is prohibitive to progress
