How To Save Money On A Bulky Waste Removal

Rubbish removals can prove expensive at the best of times, but bulky waste is far more difficult and pricey to get rid of in comparison. Fortunately, we have collated some of our best tips to help you cut costs on your next bulky rubbish removal, from repurposing to negotiating, this post will help you look after the pennies.

1. Reuse and Repurpose

Perhaps the easiest way to save money on a bulky rubbish removal is to have less rubbish. The best way to achieve this is by reusing and repurposing your potential waste, either yourself or by selling or gifting it on to someone else to make use of. There are a few different ways to do the latter, and these include:

By reusing, selling and repurposing your waste, you will have less and therefore be charged less when it comes down to hiring a waste removal company to collect and dispose of your rubbish.

2. Take It To The Tip

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 transport with a normal car, so it might be the case that you need to hire a van or struggle to get your rubbish removed to the tip - in which case hiring a firm to remove your bulky rubbish is likely the best and most convenient option.

3. Break Waste Down

We also recommend breaking your waste down as far as possible. For furniture waste this is especially important since whether you are taking it to the tip, hiring a skip or having it collected by a removal service, since the bigger and bulkier the waste is, the more expensive it tends to be to get rid off. For this reason, we recommend spending some time breaking down all of your bulky waste ready for removal.

4. Team Up With A Neighbour

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.

5. Research, Compare and Negotiate Quotes

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!
