Many of us accumulate rubbish and waste that can’t be deposited in a council bin, such as old furniture, white goods, and large amounts of green waste. One option is to take this rubbish to your nearest resource recovery centre, but if you don’t have a trailer or a spacious car, it could take you several trips - if you can actually fit the rubbish in your car. Not only that, but it’s a time consuming process, and for those that are time poor, it’s not the most efficient option.
A better option is to enlist the services of professional rubbish removalists. But what is rubbish removal?
What Is Rubbish Removal?
Rubbish removal involves the collection and removal of rubbish and debris from a location by removal specialists. A good removal service will also recycle items where possible, such as furniture, mattresses, TVs, and electrical items.
A hands-on removalist is the perfect option for a range of scenarios, such as if you have heavy items that you can’t lift, you can’t be there for collection, you don’t have time to do it yourself, you don’t have room for a skip on your property, or you need last minute rubbish removal when you’re moving house.
This is the easiest and most time efficient way of getting rid of your unwanted rubbish. Once collected, they will dispose of everything properly, either by recycling items or taking them to a refuse centre.
At 1300Clearout, we offer a few options for hands-on rubbish removal:
- Load-and-go, a great option if you have time to place all the rubbish in one location such as the garage and driveway where the driver can swing by and load up the truck. This is also the best option for those on a tight budget.
- Full-service, the perfect option for those that don’t want to lift a finger. The crew of removalists will collect the items from wherever they are located and load them onto the truck. This option is the most convenient for households and businesses.
- Combination service, this is a great option for those that require both rubbish removal and a skip bin. A handy skip bin is left for a week at your location so that you can sort through personal items, meanwhile then larger unwanted items are loaded for you into a truck for removal.
Rubbish Removal vs Skip Bins
There are benefits to both hands-on rubbish removal and skip bins. Selecting the best one for you depends on your needs and situation. Your budget can dictate what kind of rubbish collection you choose, however many people don’t realise that some hands-on removal options are just as cost effective as skip bin hire. Skip bins are ideal for those that want to take the time to sort through a large amount of items or will be accumulating waste over a period of time. For instance, deceased estates, downsizing, or renovations may require a skip bin to slowly sort through garbage for disposal.
Skip bins are priced by the size of the skip and the type of waste being disposed of in it. You can see our skip bin hire pricing here.
