It goes without saying that you should never attempt to dismantle or remove an old boiler yourself for health and safety reasons. If you need to replace your old boiler, it’s very important that you hire a professional engineer, especially if it’s a gas one, to disconnect it properly for you.
It’s important to understand that boilers are classed as commercial waste instead of household waste. So, this could put a dampener on your plans to take it to any old council-run tip yourself.
Boilers can have dangerous substances inside them, such as asbestos if they are really old so you will need the help of a professional waste collection team to remove it. At Skip It, we have many commercial waste customers, so our staff are highly-trained in the health and safety procedures of correctly handling and collecting hazardous waste.
You will be pleased to know that in the most part, boilers are able to be recycled as well as qualifying to be re-conditioned for re-use. We ensure that 95 per cent of all the waste we collect from our residential customers is recycled, in order to help protect the environment.
Our Wait & Load service is ideal if you’ve just got the one boiler floating around your home that needs disposing of. Or, if you’re doing larger DIY or renovation work, then our Skip Hire service could be another option for you.
If you’re in the middle of selling your property and you need to clear out your loft or basement at the same time as disposing of an old boiler, then our House Clearance service will be an ideal solution. Whatever option you decide, we look forward to helping you dispose of your old boiler!
