Don’t get caught out by rogue traders who fly tip your waste

Don’t get caught out by rogue traders who fly tip your waste.
Through lockdown Wiltshire Council like many around the country have seen an increase in fly tipping in country lanes.
Councils then have to clear this waste when it’s on the public highway, if the waste is dumped on private land, then it’s the responsibility of the land owner to clear the waste.
All waste is inspected and if the original owner can be identified then Wiltshire Council will take the home owner to court and Fixed Penalty Notice will be issued if the rogue trader cannot be identified.

Clear your Garden waste

The sun is out and so are the farmers trimming their hedges before the nesting season.

The weather for the weekend and next week looks to be warmer, so if you are venturing into your garden to start getting ready for spring, you might be thinking about trimming your hedges and shrubs.

The question then is what to do with all that those trimmings.

You could compost some parts, shred small woody stems with a machine to use for mulching or if you have the space and time create a dead hedge which would provide a refuge for wildlife and be beneficial for biodiversity in your garden.

If you don’t have the time or space and just want to recycle it with a company you can trust, we can help.

We offer a flexible service; our team can remove all your waste for you or we can drop off some dumpy bags for you to fill and we can come along later and pick it up and recycle it for you.

Remove a Tree Stump

Winter is the perfect time to clear your Garden in preparation for the Spring. Plants and hedges are generally leaf free and this gives you the perfect opportunity to see the potential of your garden.

Moving plants is relatively simple, removing tree stumps is more challenging.

You can engage a tree surgeon to do this for you, or you can try it yourself with a stump grinder, mini excavator or digging it out by hand.

There are lots of videos on YouTube and a handy guide on RHS site How to Remove a Tree Stump – RHS Site

The question left is then what do you do with your tree stump, we are all aware that burning wood just to get rid of it is not great for the environment, we at Crapper and Sons can help.

Crapper House Clearance can also clear your garden of unwanted items, old tools, BBQs, timber, fencing and tree stumps to name a few. Please see our website https://www.crapperandsons.co.uk/house-clearance-and-waste-collection/

All wooden items will be recycled on site where we will put them through a number of shredding machines, separate out any metals, glass etc, break down the wood down to about 6cm and create Grade C waste wood ready for a Biomass plant.

We support two Biomass plants, where the wood generates electricity and is exported to the grid.

We offer a flexible service; our team can remove all your waste for you or we can drop off some dumpy bags for you to fill and we can come along later and pick it up and recycle it for you.

When redesigning your garden or land, you have a number of options when creating a border, a brick wall, wooden fence or you could plant a natural mixed hedge.

Look and cost varies between each option, but the cheapest by a long way and best for the environment would be to plant a hedge.

You can plant a hedge from early autumn to late winter, its vigorous work preparing the soil so you will not be cold outside, even with the east wind blowing.

Wiltshire Business Awards 2018 – Multiple Award Winners!

During January 2018 we were approached by the Swindon Advertiser to enter the 2018 Business Awards. The Business awards have been running for over 20 years throughout which a comprehensive process has been developed to assess local businesses.

The first step included the application of categories you wished to enter. This was followed by gathering information about the company how it evolved, what it does and where it all happens. We were asked about the business finances, development Strategy, our group structure, number of employee’s, recruitment, involvment in the community, our greatest successes and plans for the future.

We then received an invitation to meet the judges and talk to the sponsors of this event. At this point they had already read our application so had some insight to what all the businesses were about although this was an opportunity for them to find out more about us and the business we represent. It was also a chance for us to meet and network with other successful businesses. This was a very friendly and informal event and a pleasure to attend.

BSI PAS 100 Certification

In 2010 we achieved the BSI PAS 100 quality mark on our green waste recycling; which relates to the processing of those materials from reception, right through to the finished product.

Several changes were made resulting in Crapper and Sons beginning 2010 with considerable improvements in the efficiency of the composting cycle from the outset.

We are proud to report that we have successfully achieved our PAS 100 certification renewal in both 2011 and 2012; we will be re-audited in July 2013 to enable us to renew our certificate.

If you would like any further information feel free to contact us, we will be very proud to discuss our compost with you.
