Rubbish Removal, this is a problem that often occurs in London. Usually when clearing out the flat or house with the annual spring clean or when we get the new sofa or bed and need to dispose of the old one. For most people, they do not own a ‘ute’ as we would call it in New Zealand or suitably big Chelsea Tractor, disposing of your rubbish can either mean multiple trips to the tip/refuse site or calling in a skip or rubbish removal firm. There are however other ways that your junk can become someone else’s treasure. 

Give It Away

Now days there are numerous websites such as Gumtree or or Freeads where you can advertise your sofa, TV etc and someone else will come and collect it. Obviously to do this your items should be in good condition and you would want to include a number of photos. 

Another option is arranging for a charity to pick things up. They will only take items though that are in good condition which they can resell. 

Some councils also offer a free collection service for mattresses, beds etc. Check with your local council about this, as you do not want to leave an unexpected surprise for the bin man!

Alternative to Skips

If you have a lot of rubbish or are doing renovations or building then often people get a skip. Considerations for this include the cost, as you will pay a fixed amount for a load and the parking suspension from the council for the skip. Do your homework on this, as the parking will add a lot of costs on top. It maybe better to arrange for your rubbish to be picked up by a waste carrier to avoid these charges. 

Always use a Licensed Carrier

There are plenty of cowboys out there and getting rid of rubbish isn’t that hard, so always ensure you use a fully licensed waste carrier who will dispose of your rubbish responsibly and will recycle wherever possible.
