Edinburgh Junk Removal in 4 Simple Steps:

  1. Book Your Junk Removal.

    Choose a collection size for your waste clearance and a collection time (am, pm or 1-hour slot). Don’t worry if you get it wrong, we can easily amend on site.

  2. Team Arrive.

    You can track the team online as they arrive and we’ll send you text & email alerts on the way. You’ll know their vehicle reg and team name & photos – so you know who to look out for. All teams carry photo ID and are DBS checked.

  3. Junk Removed.

    Having confirmed the size of your rubbish, our teams will remove it and sweep the area clean. Before & after pictures are taken to record your waste removal, which we’ll email to you. You’ll get a waste transfer note immediately after the team leaves.

  4. Recycle.

    We’ll take your old junk to a licensed commercial recycling facility. This will ensure it’s disposed of responsibly. On average 95% is diverted from landfills.

That’s it. No fuss. No hassle. Click – swoosh – done! You’ll be amazed at how easy it is. Take a look at what our customers say (we ask for feedback after every job) or have posted on Trustpilot.

Average skip hire cost in Edinburgh is £200

  • To hire a 6-yard skip in Edinburgh will set you back around £200 (including VAT).
  • You’ll also need to consider whether you need a skip hire permit if you’re placing your skip on a public road, which costs £27 for a week, and a further £21 for any additional weeks.
  • Some well-established Edinburgh skip hire providers are Border Skip Hire and NWH Group.
  • Or for a hassle-free way to hire a skip is to check our sister site Loveskips. Loveskips works with local providers to ensure a professional, reliable skip hire which suits your needs.

Areas near to Edinburgh that we also cover include Clackmannanshire, Inverness, East Lothian, Scottish Borders, Midlothian, Falkirk, Aberdeenshire and Fife.

Top Tips Before You Tip

There are three recycling centres in Edinburgh that are free for residents to use, accepting most types of household waste. Be sure to check prior to going what you can dispose of as there is a list of prohibited items.

Unfortunately, these centres aren’t able to accept any trade waste. You’ll have to work with a trade waste disposal service to collect any business and commercial waste. For more information, read this handy leaflet from Edinburgh Council.

It’s true that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure – your old sofa might be past its glory days but that doesn’t mean it can’t find a loving home elsewhere. Visit the National re-use site or call on 0800 066 5820 for donating tips and advice.
