Mawsons is dedicated to providing the most ethical and environmentally sophisticated office and house clearance services in the North East.

We choose to reuse

When we started in the business we were appalled at the sheer waste we witnessed at all the major North East waste transfer stations. Perfectly good house and office furniture and effects were being dumped in vast quantities around the clock. And whilst the companies operating the waste transfer stations claimed 50% – 70% recycle rates (questionable in our opinion), recycling has a much higher environmental cost when compared to reusing.

Benefits of Reuse

  • Prevents items entering the waste stream
  • Saves the energy that is used to manufacture the products
  • Provides quality goods at affordable prices
  • Decreases demand for raw materials
  • Reduces pollution

We know that many people want a clearance service that focuses on reducing these wasteful practices. So we developed a company that reflects these values. We are fully licensed waste carriers through the Environment Agency.


We are committed to ensuring that everything that can be reused is reused. And of course as much of the remainder is recycled as is possible. It’s easy to say, and nowadays most of our competitors do, but putting it into practice is a real challenge.

This is because a lot of the effort that goes in to getting a broad range of furniture and effects reused is not financially rewarding. Of course it is easy to get valuables reused – this is often called selling!! However, the vast majority of the items we clear are of such little value that we have to give them away or the payment we do receive only covers the costs of sale (labour, delivery, storage etc). Taking the time to set up and maintain a network of second hand dealers, boot sellers, ebayers and charities for this less valuable stock (records, books, furniture, appliances, computers, clothes, ornaments etc etc) requires time, skill and dedication.

We are proud of our commitment to this process, and of the on going dedication of our friends, associates and above all our employees in helping us reach our goals. We are always happy to discuss how the contents of any house clearance or office clearance will be dealt with.
