Bulky waste disposal is one of the biggest headaches for householders. Whether it’s an old fridge, mattress, or other unwanted furnishings. Responsible disposal can be practically difficult. And costly to manage. So, it’s important to take the time to find the best solution for your needs.
Cost-Effective Solutions for Bulky Waste Disposal
Man and van
Man and van hire is one of the most popular ways of dealing with bulky waste. It’s incredibly convenient, because all you have to do is point the collectors at the junk you want removed, and they’ll do the rest. You don’t have to worry about lifting. And if there’s any debris left behind, a reputable waste collector will sweep it up before they leave. And with various sizes of vans available – up to grab wagon for seriously large loads – you should be able to find an economic solution for your needs.
Skip hire isn’t for everyone. Simply because not everyone has the space to accommodate a skip on their property. And it’s not necessarily the best option for bulky waste. Because while a skip can accommodate a sofa or other furnishings, man and van services will provide a better option. But if you’re working on a project that may require ongoing waste clearance over a number of days – perhaps with a house or garden renovation – skip hire can be a cost-effective solution.
Share the cost with your neighbours
Man and van and grab wagon hire a probably the most convenient ways to dispose of bulky waste. But if you don’t have enough waste to fill a van, it’s not always cost effective. So, before booking, check with your neighbours to see if they’re having a clear out too. If other people can help you to fill a van or skip and share the costs, you can have the best of both worlds. Convenience and service without expense.
Reduce the size of your waste
Bulky waste is awkward and expensive to remove simply because it is bulky. But sometimes, it needn’t be. While you can’t easily reduce the size of a bath or mattress, with most other furnishings, you can. So, rather than paying for a whole chest of drawers to be collected, take it apart and pay for scrap wood removal. You might even be able to offer it to neighbours for their wood burner. Strip your sofa and break it down to smaller parts. If you reduce the volume of your waste, you can reduce the cost of having it removed. Potentially reducing your requirements from grab wagon to Sprinter. It just takes a little bit of effort.
Bulky waste removal can be a headache. If you don’t have your own transport – or the manpower to manoeuvre it – it can feel like you’re stuck for options. But with a little bit of research, you can find the perfect, cost-effective solution for your needs. You just need to find the right waste removal company to work with.
