How to save money on the cost of rubbish removal

What is the cost of waste disposal?

How to reduce the cost of rubbish removal… lets say you’ve installed a new kitchen or bathroom, or you may be having a clear out and want to reclaim the your garage…. maybe a tenant has vacated leaving plenty of junk behind. What is the best thing to do?  and how can you save yourself pounds when dealing with your waste costs…. Well, like many things in life doing it yourself will be potentially the most affordable way, just filling up your car with unwanted goods and driving to the civic amenities where they take all domestic waste free of charge……

You may be busy, or the amount of rubbish to dispose wont fit in your vehicle….. the next most affordable way to get rid of your waste would be to call on a friend who has more room in their car…. you can get vans into the civic amenities but they will check to see if it’s commercial waste so it’s not always guaranteed, they may also ask for proof of residence in the city, as the Bristol civic amenities only caters for residence of the city. There is also a height restriction so taller vehicles may not gain access.

If that’s still not an option then you can look into calling a licensed waste operatives, essentially there are three major categories:

1) Skip companies

A big lorry (7.5 tonne and bigger) will come and drop of a funny looking bin, which will be of a pre-determined size at the location. Prices for skips in Bristol can be seen Prices, as you can see from the comparison site are elevated, mainly due to landfill tax which is the main cost for waste disposal. Generally these companies are very efficient at delivering the skip, but then who is going to fill it? already the skip is expensive but then you need to get your hands dirty and break a sweat just to fill it up! or their maybe a cheeky neighbour who sees a bit of room and fills it up before you do! or the skip is not big enough and now you need to shell out more money…. Also if you want the skip on the road, Bristol city council charges a fee to park the skip on the road, this costs £50!… fortunately the skip companies take care of the paper work but the council still wants the fee and the skip won’t be delivered until this has been done, only adding to the cost of removing the rubbish

2) Hippo bags

Cheapest one is is £79.99 for 1 cubic yard! £94.99 for 1.5 cubic yards! and you do all the loading and dragging out to the roadside! You also need to buy the bag which can set you back an other £9.99 and you have to go to a DIY shop to purchase them or order them online and wait for them to be delivered…. (possibly the most expensive and method!)
