So, this never got done & now my mother is complaining again.  :facepalm:


Time to order a skip & work out some sort of plan.

TBF, that does look fucked.

Pallet wrap round the few bits of frame that still have glass in them? Wheelie bin for them, firepit for the rest?

At this point, wait for a stiff breeze and it'll demolish itself!

Wait till November, perhaps a touch of petrol and you're off!

no locals to help?

I always saw it as an advantage of working in the trauma field, that I had ready access to grateful heavies if needed!

Order up some sticky sheeting, the sort builders put down on carpets to protect them.  Stick it to the glass like they did in the war to stop windows turning into shrapnel

 

Fix disposable ropes to the frame put a cheap tarp inside to collect the mess and pull it down from a safe distance.   Put the whole lot in a skip.
Sic transit and all that..

That's probably going to be the plan of action.  I'll need to buy or hire a wheelbarrow as well, to get stuff into the skip.    It's a nasty, horrible job & can't see anyone else wanting do do it without being paid a lot of money.

You'd be surprised what you can get people to do. It will cost you nearly £300 for a skip and I'll bet you can find someone to do it for far less than that.

Try googling local rubbish clearance and give some of them a call. 1/2 a days work max for a man with a van.

Unfortunately this could mean that the remains of the greenhouse end up on the verge of a local country lane.
You'll need to check them out thoroughly.

That’ll go in a mini skip, and even here in leafy Bucks that’s around £70 delivered and collected.

There's already 2 big yellow bags of assorted garden crap that the recycling centre won't take, so a big skip it will be.

Make sure that they have a current waste transfer licence (webby)  otherwise it will be you Env Health come for when clearing the lane the stuff is dumped in .

Try a Hippo skip bag they have offers on most bank holiday week ends currently 15% thinks 1.5 tonnes. Just under 3.5 m3 as against a 4m3 skip.

Thanks Bob,  that might come in useful.   My parents are hoarders,  they never throw anything away & have a house full of useless junk.    Think Wordperfect on 5 1/4" floppies with ring bound manuals. And a PC that can probably run it.

Cripes, that is proper hoarding.
Do not clench. It only makes it worse.

Nah, amateurs.  My MIL's flat was waste deep in junk and spam mail.  Took 5 van loads of paper to the tip in the hiace and we hadn't even started on the furniture (or the loft).   We'd a house clearance expert to value it but he said it was less than worthless.  She was deep in debt to mail order houses and half the stuff lay unopened.  She was an ardent brexiteer and farage fanatic, too.

That sounds like gold to the right person. Proper hoarders only do tat.
