What Services do Rubbish Removal Companies Provide?

Waste may come in different shapes and sizes. Unfortunately, renovating, clearing space or getting rid of furniture brings out the largest and heaviest junk, making the job much more difficult than it already is. Fortunately, there are rubbish removal companies that can help you get rid of the cumulative litter. These companies usually provide, but are not limited to the following services:

Home rubbish removal

As the name suggests, home rubbish removal is for collecting waste from residences. Pricing of home rubbish removal services depend on several factors, including time, volume and location. If you’re interested in such a service, you can contact a rubbish removal firm and ask for a quote either by calling or sending an e-mail.

Hard rubbish collection

You can also hire rubbish removal firms to collect hard waste, which includes the following:

  • White goods (i.e. major household appliances typically coloured white)
  • Air conditioners
  • Refrigerators
  • Furniture
  • Scrap metal
  • Dishwashers
  • Washing machines
  • Televisions
  • Lawn mowers
  • Or any other items that can be carried by two people.

Commercial/Office waste removal

Each business has its own requirements for waste removal, but it usually involves the following:

  • Rubbish collection after office moves
  • Taking old furniture and excess waste
  • Electronic waste collection and recycling

Again, pricing depends on factors such as location, volume and time.

Deceased estate rubbish removal

When a person passes away, the assets and properties the individual owns are known as his or her estate. As the term implies, deceased estate rubbish removal is waste collection in estates owned by the deceased. Services provided are usually the following:

  • Collecting and disposing of rubbish from the deceased’s property.
  • Removing valuable and non-valuable items from the deceased's property.
  • Cleaning up the property.
  • Handling of personal items.

Garbage collection

This service is for collecting and bringing your garbage to the tip. The main difference between garbage collection and the other rubbish removal services is that in garbage collection, trash is regularly collected following a schedule, while the other services are one-off removals.

Garden and green waste removal

This service is for removing garden refuse, park rubbish and all sorts of green waste like hedge trimmings, grass cuttings, animal bedding, leaves and chipped wood. Green waste removals are usually one-time collections, unless specified. The waste is then recycled.

Renovation rubbish removal

When you have your home or office renovated, there’s always a large amount of waste that needs to be disposed during and especially after the repair, and it’s a nightmare to clean the place up. By hiring a rubbish removal service, you can get rid of stacks of remodelling waste like old floorboards, broken furniture and reams of paper waste without lifting a finger.

Carpet removal and disposal

Another service usually provided by rubbish removal companies is carpet removal and disposal, which involves tearing up and removing old carpets and other flooring materials, cleaning up the area, and then recycling or donating the removed materials afterwards.
