J. Stuart Watson is committed to recycling. We like to believe that selling by auction is the original and our favourite form of recycling! However, even amongst house clearance waste, we look to recycle as much as possible. Wood waste is sent to create energy, metals are recycled, linens and clothes offered to charities. As licensed waste carriers we only dispose of waste into regulated waste transfer stations and follow the waste producers hierarchy.

What our customers say about us:

"I've been buying (and sometimes selling) at this auction for over ten years. Mr Watson and his team are always honest, helpful and polite. This is by far the most comprehensive and interesting auction in Kent."
