How We Recycle Your Waste To Protect The Environment
We Recycle Around 90% Of All House Clearance Waste
At Keke we are committed to protecting the environment and helping local people at the same time.
That’s why we ensure that as little house-hold waste as possible goes to landfill, we achieve this target in the following ways:
- First we separate all items so that anything re-usable or useful can be donated to charity
- Second we use professional waste management centres to make sure that everything that can be recycled, is recycled
- Third only actual junk and rubbish that can’t be re-used or recycled goes to landfill
As licenced waste carriers approved by the Environment Agency, you can be assured that at Keke we take our environmental obligations very seriously.
Making Sure Our Property Clearance Service Is Green
By operating in this way we can:
- Provide the greenest possible house clearance service

Where possible we donate to local charities, you can learn more about how together we can support charities here.
Why Recycling Household Waste Is Important
With roughly 15 million tonnes of waste going to landfill each year, that equates to roughly 230 kg per person in the UK.
Metals like aluminium can be recycled many times without loss of quality, and it requires roughly 95% less energy to make a new can out of recycled aluminium than making one from new.
When you multiply this up over all of the recyclable materials in the average home, you can see that it works out to a huge amount of wasted resources and energy.
Plus it fills the ground with rubbish and junk, which can have ecological consequences and an impact on wildlife and the water table.
By re-purposing, re-using, and recycling your house clearance items, we can protect the environment, save energy, and reduce costs at the same time.
How We Recycle Your Waste To Avoid Landfill
As already mentioned, charity donations are the start point.
We work with some of the biggest and best known charities in the UK, as well as smaller local charities too.
We also help protect the environment by using professional recycling centres who split the waste into categories like paper, wood, metals, etc, along with waste from other carriers, before recycling it.
With roughly 10% of all the household waste we are left with ending in landfill, compared to the UK average of 57%, you can see that our policy of charity donations and recycling reduces the amount we send to landfill by an enormous amount.
