What do you do with our waste?
We remove waste, rubbish and unwanted items from commercial premises, construction sites and domestic houses and gardens. Our service includes a two man team who are insured and licensed to load the waste materials - from anywhere on the property - onto our trucks, sweep up after the job is complete and transport the waste to a registered transfer station.
We can remove any item as long as it can be lifted by two people. For example, but not limited to:
Furniture: beds, sofas, tables, chairs, armchairs, cabinets, wardrobes, computer desks
Appliances: cookers, washing machines, fridges, freezers, microwaves, tumble dryers, stereos, televisions, printers, fax machines, computers
Garages, Lofts and Cellars: tools, lawn mowers, boxes, clothes, books
Garden: shrubs, bushes, branches, mud, concrete, soil, turf, compost, garden furniture, sheds
Construction and Demolition: plaster, plasterboard, pallets, glass, concrete, packaging, metal
Roofing and Flooring: tiles, carpets, wood
We can’t collect certain hazardous materials such as paint cans, motor oils, chemicals, solvents, asbestos, medical or biological waste but your local authority can offer advice on how you should dispose of them. Certain items, which we can collect, are classified as hazardous waste because of the way in which they need to be disposed. These items include computer monitors, fridges and freezers. There is a supplement rate for these items because our disposal costs are higher.
We are not licensed or insured to carry certain materials. Your local authority can supply information on the licensed carriers of hazardous waste in your area.
We do all the loading and sweep up afterwards and generally it is cheaper!
We charge by weight or volume whereas skip hire is charged on the size of the skip and not the amount of waste that is put into it. Skips can cause the added hassle and expense of having to apply for a skip permit in advance, and you run the risk of fly tipping into the skip.
Of course we can, although you will have to arrange this with a charity shop in advance unless you prefer to donate to one of our agreed charities. For insurance reasons we cannot guarantee the condition of the items upon arrival.
Yes. Our employees are fully insured and our trucks are fully insured, including cover against any damage caused to a client’s property when removing waste from the premises.
Yes. Our employees are fully licensed and our trucks are fully insured including cover against any damage caused to a client’s property when removing waste from those premises.
No. We can only take items away. We are not insured or licensed to provide a removals service and our trucks are not designed for removals. However, we can move items from one room to another within the same property for a small additional charge.
We charge by volume - for example how much space has been taken up in the truck. However, if your materials are particularly heavy - for example, it is soil or rubble - we charge based on weight.
We ask you to give us as much notice as possible and, most of the time, we can complete your collection at the time most convenient to you. If you need a job completed urgently, we can often arrange a collection within 24 hours from your call.
Yes. Our rates are based on the amount and type of waste being removed. Please give us as much and as accurate information as possible about the waste you want removed so that we can quote you correctly. Upon arrival on site, our collections team will provide an obligation free quote, and they will only start work once you agree that quote.
No, providing our teams can access the waste. Our team will call you with an exact quote and then process your card payment on completion. Our teams take photos before and after and we can send this to you on request.
We will try our best to service and accommodate your needs. Please ask us to organise an ‘out of hour’s collection’.
To allow for circumstances beyond our control, such as traffic hold ups or collections that end up being larger than expected. Our truck team will contact you between 20 to 30 minutes before their arrival to confirm the exact arrival time.
Our trucks can carry 16 cubic yards of waste. This is the same size as 4x4 yards skips or 2x8 yards skips.
Our teams use shovels, brooms, dust sheets, rubble bags, buckets, wheel barrows and a sack barrow, as appropriate.
Yes. Our teams are supplied with safety boots and branded clothing. A spare set is always in the truck so they are clean and presentable for the next collection.
Most waste is recycled or reused. The items are sorted and disposed of in a way that is least damaging to the environment. We give items to charity shops, or it is taken to specialist recycling facilities.
