PSH Environmental are a family owned and run skip hire and waste management company in Norwich. Having started the business in 1985, PSH Environmental have over 35 years’ experience in the industry and are ever-developing new technology in their skip yard to make this process simpler and more environmentally friendly for everyone.
Since the beginning the goal for PSH Environmental has always been to succeed in sending zero waste to landfill. Working in conjunction with Seneca Environmental Solutions, PSH Environmental is one of three household waste treatment and disposal plants used by Norfolk County Council.
First and foremost, PSH Environmental is a skip hire company, having always manufactured and hired out their skips from the very start. They have a range of skips suitable for domestic use, commercial renovations and construction developments. These include 2-12 yard skips and roll-on skips, as well as asbestos and plasterboard specialist skips.
An extraction process is carried out for every skip received in the yard to ensure all waste is segregated to either be used again, recycled or disposed of appropriately. From this, PSH Environmental have extracted aggregate materials that can be re-used for the likes of driveways, roads, potholes, building sites, new build foundations and walls, and much more. If you’d like to purchase a bag of these from PSH Environmental, call them on 01603 721533 to discuss your requirements.
Whilst PSH Environmental doesn’t accept plasterboard being disposed of in their skips (as once mixed with other waste, this material makes it difficult to separate waste that can be reused), this doesn’t mean that you need to hire an entire specialist plasterboard skip to remove it from your property. PSH Environmental do provide the option to purchase plasterboard sacks with your skip and as many as you want depending on how much you have to dispose of.
PSH Environmental work to make the skip hire process as simple as possible for its customers but are aware that many questions arise when looking to hire a skip due to different property types, waste disposal, parking permissions, and so on. Should you have a question, PSH Environmental do work to answer as many as they can on their blog or call a member of their team on 01603 721533.

College Farm is a medieval house situated in the village of Thompson three miles from the market town of Watton. It was built by Katharine's ancestors in 1349 as a College of Priests to serve St Martin's Church and the villagers of Thompson. The college was dissolved by Henry VIII in 1541 when it then became a private house.
College Farm sits in 17 acres of lawns and woodland on the edge of the village and is the perfect secluded venue for your wedding reception or private party. B&B accommodation is also available in our 3 newly refurbished en suite rooms.
Our Jacobean dining room is available for hire for private lunch or dinner parties and we also serve traditional cream teas in the garden (weather permitting) or by the fire in the dining room if it's too cold to sit outside.
We are currently converting some derelict barns next to the house and will be able to offer a new one bedroom unit which will be perfect for self-catering staycations or wedding accommodation, as well as a barn with loos, a shower and kitchen adjoining a party room suitable for smaller weddings and functions. Both will open out onto a private west facing courtyard. The new accommodation should be ready by Summer 2021. Please keep an eye on our website for progress with this exciting new project.

The environmental benefits of upcycling are mammoth, aside from minimising the volume of discarded materials and waste being sent to landfill each year, it also reduces the need for production using new or raw materials which means a reduction in air pollution, water pollution, greenhouse gas emissions and often a conservation of global resources.
Nothing beats that feeling when you’ve done something great for the planet. Repairing an item and giving it a new life is a great feeling.
Whether you’re upcycling things yourself or buying products from designers, it’s always nice to know that you have something that is completely unique.
A bit about me
I’ve always had an interest in interior design and love sprucing up the rooms in our house. And buying all the little accessories and furniture to go with it!!
I love going to antique fairs and shops, not just to buy, but to get ideas for my next project. A change in circumstances gave me the opportunity to have a go at upcycling my own furniture and bring it back to life.
Before, it was all too easy to sell it, or bin it, because it no longer matched the room or colours. I started with a couple of smaller items, an old coffee table and side table. I was pleased with the results, so I decided to take myself to the auction and plucked up the courage to bid on a couple of bits. And there my new venture began, and I haven’t looked back!
Spruce Up Your Stuff
Mass manufacturing of furniture and the advent of the flatpack means that it’s hard to be different and to stand out without spending a fortune. Upcycling gives you the chance to own a one-of-a-kind piece.
Most of us can’t afford to replace our furniture every time we get bored or want to try something new. Upcycling means that you don’t have to be spending the earth for something new and unique.
When you fancy a change, give me a call. We can discuss what item of furniture you’re looking to breathe new life into, the colours you like and the type of finish you have in mind.
