After a removal company has helped you move into or out of the Lewes or Uckfield area, you’ll find yourself left with a lot of waste, from packing paper, tape and cardboard boxes to bubble wrap. It’s important that once the dust has settled and house removals are completed, you dispose of it all in a responsible and environmentally friendly manner.
So in this blog post, Ranger Removals – the Lewes and Uckfield area’s leading choice for affordable house removals – has provided some tips to this end. For more tips or to book a removal, don’t hesitate to call our friendly team on

Don’t Forget to Recycle – Chances are, a lot of the boxes and packing material used in your removal will be recyclable. While you might think this means taking it all down to a tip near Lewes or Uckfield, it could also mean passing on the materials to a fellow local who is moving home. You can save them some money, clear up some space, spare yourself a couple of trips to the tip, and even earn some good karma!
Establish a Compost Heap – Does your new garden have a healthy amount of space in it? Why not set up a composter / compost heap? House removals can be hungry and thirsty work, and any coffee grounds, tea bags (what removal company team member doesn’t love a cuppa?), fruit skins and leftovers can be thrown on there. In no time at all, you’ll have a fertiliser packed-full of nutrients that can be used to help you put your stamp on your new Lewes or Uckfield property by growing foliage and plants of your choosing.
Set Up Recycling Containers – There’s a saying: “start as you mean to go on”, and this is certainly the case when it comes to cleaning up and recycling. Ensure you have separate containers for paper, glass and aluminium, so that anything accumulated before, during and after house removals can be properly sorted and disposed of in the correct recycling containers. If you’re one of the many Lewes and Uckfield residents yet “to get in on” recycling, you’ll be amazed at how easy it is when you have dedicated containers like this.
Consider What You Need – We always urge our Lewes and Uckfield clients to spend some time before house removals to consider what possessions they’re going to want to keep, and what items might be better putting into storage (or getting rid of altogether). But this process doesn’t have to stop once you get to your new destination. You may find that you’ve still kept quite a few rarely used items that are taking up much-needed space and threatening to make certain rooms feel a bit too cramped.
In addition to being able to sell-off unused items on eBay, Gumtree or Amazon – consider Lewes and Uckfield charity shops. Many past clients who’ve selected us as their removal company of choice have dropped off physical media they no longer use (it’s the age of the Kindle, Spotify and Netflix after all) at charity shops and done their “good deed for the day” while freeing up some space in their new home.
