So you’ve got a pile of rubbish and unwanted items accumulating in your backyard. You could hire a trailer if you don’t have one and transport all of it to the dump, but that will take time and energy. Or you could get someone to do this for you. But, how much does it cost to remove rubbish?It’s a good question, because many people believe that doing it yourself will always be more cost effective. But in reality, the time and energy needed to dispose of the waste yourself could end up being more of a burden than enlisting the help of professional removalists.
If you’re time poor, unable to lift and move items yourself, don’t have a means to transport the rubbish, or all of the above, then rubbish removal is the perfect solution.
How much does it cost to remove rubbish?
Unfortunately there is no definitive answer for the cost of rubbish removal. But rest assured that it is usually more cost effective than people think. Prices vary depending on many different factors, which we’ll go into detail about below.

Factors that affect rubbish removal costs:
- Type of rubbish – The type of rubbish you have can affect how it is removed and disposed of. Common household waste such as cardboard and plastic is simple to collect, larger items such as furniture and white goods are more cumbersome and may require more people to lift them.
- Amount of rubbish – The amount of rubbish can sometimes be measured by volume and weight, such as when hiring out different skip bin sizes. Sometimes, the amount is measured by how much space it fills up in a removal truck, for example if a load takes up 25% of a truck or 75% of the truck.
- Location – The location relates to where you are located and where the rubbish is located on the property. The further away the location is and the more difficult the rubbish is to access may increase the removal costs.
- Labour – The amount of removalists it takes to remove your rubbish will also affect costs. If it is a two-person job, then you will pay more for labour costs. If it only requires one person and is a quicker process, then the amount you will be charged will be lower. Look at the types of rubbish you have to gauge how many people it will require. Do you have lots of heavy white goods and cumbersome couches? You may need two people for the job.
