If you’re doing landscaping or a garden clearance, you will need to know what is the best way to dispose of your old fence panels.
How to Get Rid of Fence Panels
Moving fence panels can be a real effort, so if you don’t have a big enough car, trailer or van, there are some other options.
- The first option is to take the panels to the local tip. There will always be a section of what is called “green waste” – wood, leaves, etc. You may not be able to dispose of fencing that has been treated with paint or varnish in that way, so to check with the local council before you make a trip.
- If you do not mind keeping the panels for a while, your council might offer a ‘bulk collection’ service. Most councils charge around £30 for this service, so it’s worth checking the policy with them.
- You could break it up and put it in a wheelie bin: Treated wood cannot go in your green waste wheelie bin, but natural, untreated wood often can. Check with the council for their policy and don’t over-fill the bin, or the lorry will not be able to pick it up.
- It is possible to burn natural wood, but the fumes from treated wood are dangerous.
- Hiring a skip for a job like this makes life easy: as well as the panels, you can also clear out other bulky items that you need to dispose of. A skip costs less than you might imagine and, with Martlands Skip Hire, we will recycle as much of the waste as possible at our dedicated recycling centre.
