Garbage Removal Tips

Hello, my name is Tony and I'm the king of trash. I don't work in the trash disposal business myself, but I grew up helping my uncle work in his garbage disposal business. I would spend every weekend riding around in his truck collecting bins and other waste from residential and business properties. I really enjoyed the experience and I learnt lots of useful garbage disposal tips. Although I eventually went to university and got a boring office job, I never forgot the thrill of collecting those skip bins. I decided to start this blog so I could pass on advice to others.



Hiring a Garbage Removal Company: 3 Things to Consider

If you are planning to call in a garbage removal company to deal with rubbish from your property, you may not be aware of everything you will need to keep in mind to ensure that the operation is a success. Below is a guide which will help you to prepare for a visit by a rubbish removal company.


The first thing you should consider is the type of rubbish the garbage removal company will be dealing with. If you are planning to dispose of standard household rubbish, then it is likely that a standard garbage removal team will be able to deal with this. However, if the rubbish you wish to dispose of contains paints, fuels, oils or other hazardous substances such as asbestos, you will need to call in a professional team who a qualified to handle and dispose of these items.


Before a garbage removal company agrees to work with you, they will want to establish the volume of rubbish you need moving. The volume of rubbish will dictate how long a job will take and the cost of transporting the waste from your property to a landfill site or a recycling plant. If you are unsure of volume, you should ask a contractor from the waste disposal service to visit you so they can assess the amount of rubbish which they will be with if they agree to take on the job.


The garbage removal company will use trucks and skip bins in order to haul your waste away. However, in order to do so, they will need access to your property. If you live on a narrow road or if your yard is very small, this may impede the work of the garbage removal operatives. You will also need to consider if installing a skip bin will cause problems with the flow of traffic on a public road. Before you invite a company to work on your land, you should carefully assess access routes to establish if it will be possible for the trucks and skip bins to reach the desired location. If it is not possible, the garbage contractors may be able to position the skip bin or truck nearby so the can carry the waste to the equipment.
