always a good idea to enquire with your local charity store about what they do and don’t accept, as

- You can also advertise to give it away or sell it using online marketplaces such as Shpock, Gumtree

your waste, but DIY forums or Pinterest are a fantastic place to start for inspiration.

There is also the option of taking your bulky rubbish down to the tip and disposing of it for free or for
a small charge. However, there are a few drawbacks of doing this. Firstly, you need to be mindful and
wary of what waste you are trying to dispose of at your local recycling centre, as some will be accepted
and other waste will not. Secondly, it is important to remember that bulky waste can be difficult to

rubbish removed to the tip - in which case hiring a firm to remove your bulky rubbish is likely the best
and most convenient option.

There is also the possibility of teaming up with a neighbour when it comes to your next rubbish removal
job, since doing so might share and cut costs considerably. Whether you decide to hire a rubbish removal
firm or a skip, cutting the costs in half is bound to work out slightly cheaper. The best way to
organise this is to discuss potential renovations or projects you both have coming up and see if they
would like to handle the rubbish removal together.

Lastly, it is always a good idea to do your research. Whether this be researching firms, comparing quotes
or negotiating these, this stage is vital to getting the best deal for your rubbish removal. Many
companies might offer better packages depending on the weight and quantity of your waste, so having a
good idea of this and negotiating an affordable and fair price is key to saving money on your bulky
rubbish removal jobs! Find more details on finding the best waste removal companies here.
