Post-tenancy

Sorting out at the end of a tenancy can be dreaded by both landlords and tenants alike. We've put together some information to make the big clear up a little easier to manage.

 

Waste carriers license

In order to transport business waste, you must hold a valid waste carriers license. Waste carrier licenses are issued by the Environmental Agency, and failure to hold such a license may result in a fine of up to £5000*. 

You must register if you do any of these things as part of your business:

Registration is usually free if you only transport waste you produce yourself. Otherwise, registration costs £154*. For more information, visit the Environmental Agency's website here.

 

The Pink Bag Scheme

This year we're working in partnership with Hull University Union and Hull City Council to bring students The Pink Bag Scheme. The idea is simple. Students living within the pilot area have been advised to reuse, recycle or donate anything that can be, and for everything else there's the black bin and the pink bags. For further information on the streets included, collection dates and where to get extra bags, click here.

Bulky item collection  

Hull City Council provides a FREE bulky item collection service for residents. Each property is entitled to one free visit removing up to five items per 12 month period.

Bring Out Your Rubbish Days (BOYRD)

Where possible, Hull City Council put on BOYRD across Hull, a service to remove rubbish and larger items for free. We've worked with Hull City Council this year in an effort to bring some of the BOYRD's in line with the end of student tenancy agreements, and we'll be sharing these dates as and when they have been confirmed.

BOYRD's will enable you to get rid of most waste, with the exception of builders rubble/D.I.Y and garden waste material. Further exemptions may apply, so please check with your local Neighbourhood Housing Team.

Throughout the mornings, the teams will drive up and down the roads (see confirmed dates and map) to collect items left on the street outside people's homes. Residents are asked to have the items for disposal ready by 7am and not to block the footpaths and inconvenience pedestrians.

CONFIRMED DATE:

The next BOYRD will take place on Saturday, 17th February 2018. The areas to be covered in this campaign are: Beaconsfield Gardens; Carisbrooke Avenue; Carrington Avenue; Chatham Avenue; Chester Avenue; Clarendon Avenue; Clinton Avenue; Clivedale Avenue; Clovelly Avenue; Cornwall Gardens; Cottingham Road; Edgecumbe Street; Exmouth Street; Falmouth Street; Ferndale Avenue; Ferndale Avenue; Kirkdale Gardens; Lambton Street; Manvers Street; Melbourne Street; Newland Avenue; Premier Grove; Raglan Avenue; Raglan Street; Rosedene Villas; Rothesay Avenu; Salisbury Gardens; Scholars Drive; Sidmouth Street; Tavistock Street; The Beeches; The Cedars; The Hollies; The Laurels; The Newlands; Torrington Street; Ventnor Street; Waddington Court; Walgrave Street; Whitehaven Avenue; Windsor Avenue ONLY.

Charities

When replacing items within your student properties, please make careful decisions about what needs to be discarded and what can be given as a charitable donation. Both Newland Avenue and Beverley Road host charity shops who raise money for some fantastic causes. If you no longer need items that are in a saleable condition, think about giving them rather than throwing them out.

 

Dove House Hospice do fantastic work and rely on charitable donations to fill their shops. For details on what you can donate to Dove House Hospice, click here

Dove House Hospice is a charity providing excellent care for people in the local community with life limiting illnesses, for more information on the fantastic work that Dove House Hospice do, visit their website here.

 

Rerun is a local charitable organisation that can collect unwanted items that are in good working order, free from tears, unsoiled and under cover free of charge. 

 
Rerun works in Hull, Barton on Humber and the East Riding with the aim to relieve poverty through the provision of household items. For more information on Rerun or to organise a collection, please click here.
