Plumbing Question

Is the "rubbish" now mine?

i had plumbers in last week to remove an old water tank and back boiler and also install a new combi boiler, the plumber dropper the price a little as he said he could scrap the waste on finishing the job he's left all scrap in my yard saying he would come back for it and its still there a week later so is it mine now or do i wait longer (at the mo its not in the way as i'm still in the middle of moving in)

If hes dropped the price,maybe you should give him another week if its not in the way.Also best not upset him if you were happy with his work,good plumbers dont grow on trees!

This depends on what was agreed at the start off the work.You should always clarify who removing the rubbish you all the installer from the start. this saves time and frustration

phone him up to remind him about it you have had a lower price as he was taking scrap. Dont put out front as it will soon go and if the plumber lowered your price for it you may find that if a problem happens with your new install he may make you wait and wait to come out. If after phone call he dont come tell him it will be moved and he should have no problem then but also realy he will come collect.
