Rubbish removal is a service offered by both local councils and independent private companies to remove your unwanted household items and waste from your property. Typically this can include household and garden rubbish removal, as well as furniture and other belongings you no longer want or need.
In addition to standard rubbish collections, local councils across England and Wales offer special rubbish removal services to take away bulky items or large quantities of rubbish that you might have accumulated.
Alternatively, you can hire independent companies to come and dispose of your unwanted rubbish – such as a man and van rubbish removal. If you have a lot of rubbish to deal with, whether it’s household rubbish, building waste or garden waste, you might want to hire a skip to use for a period of time.
If you’re in a hurry, some can offer a same day rubbish removal service – usually for an additional cost, so it’s worth speaking to local companies first before making a decision which option is best for you.
