In London, waste removal problems have traditionally been solved by skip hire, but it’s never been a very good solution. You have to load the skip yourself, not easy at the best of times, and even more awkward if there are cars parked to the sides. Then there’s the problem of phantom dumpers, skips magically fill up with all the neighbourhood junk overnight. You also need to wait for the skip to be delivered, then maybe you don’t have a skip full of rubbish but just too much for the domestic collection, or maybe the skip is just not quite big enough. If all the traditional shortfalls of a skip service were not bad enough, in London you now need to apply for a permit to get a skip left outside your house.
Even if you succumb to all the skip shortfalls, all your rubbish gets dumped together and end up in a not very ecological landfill site.

- Using a London waste removal company is so convenient
How to use a London waste removal service
The service is very straightforward, you just ring up the London waste removal company and arrange for one of their trucks to make a call. Unlike skip operators, they load the rubbish themselves, straight away, and then take it away for disposal using approved recycling methods for anything possible. London’s waste removal operators aren’t fly tippers, in fact they need a license from the Environmental Agency to ensure that all the rubbish is dealt with in the correct manner.
What can you use a London waste removal service for?
London waste removal services are not just for building rubble. They’ll stop by just to pick up bulky household items such as furniture and fridges. They can clear out your garden rubbish, and not just the plant waste; they can take away soil, gravel, fencing, old garden sheds and clear the whole garden if you want. And if there is no side entrance they can take it all through the house, putting down mats and clearing up afterwards without a trace of where they’ve been.
Waste removal companies will also clear out commercial property such as shops and offices. Old furniture such as shelving, filing cabinets, and desks will be taken away, all the smaller rubbish swept up and disposed, and they can clean the area using heavy duty industrial cleaning tools.
Many items, such as TVs and air conditioning units, require special treatment before disposal. In London, waste removal companies must be familiar with both the national regulations and the local regulations about where each type of rubbish should be taken for recycling and disposal.
The services are priced on how much you need taking away and how much work is involved. The trucks are travelling around making small pick ups all the time, they don’t need to make a special journey just to pick up a single item like a freezer, they’ll include it their round at a low rate. They work 7 days a week, so you can arrange pick ups at the weekend if you’re busy during the week.
Waste removal services are becoming a popular alternative to skips everywhere, but in London, waste removal services are becoming as essential as skip hire is becoming difficult.
