    (94% landfill diversion)

Essex Rubbish Clearance in 4 Simple Steps:

  1. Book Your Clearance – choose a collection size (don’t worry if you get it wrong, we can easily amend on site) for your junk and collection time (am, pm or 1-hour slot)
  2. Team Arrive – you can track the team online as they arrive and we’ll send you text & email alerts on the way (with 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 collection size, the team will clear all your clutter and sweep the area clean. Before & after pictures are taken to record what was removed and we will email you a waste transfer note immediately as the team leaves.
  4. Recycle – we’ll take your junk to a licensed commercial recycling facility to ensure it’s disposed of responsibly. On average 94% is diverted from landfill.

That’s it. No fuss. No hassle. Click – swoosh – done! You’ll be amazed 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 Essex is £240

  • To hire a 6-yard skip in the Essex region will set you back around £240 (including VAT).
  • If you have to place your skip on a public road then you’ll need a skip hire permit from Essex Council too. This will cost £15 for a week, and an additional £10 for every week after. Make sure to plan ahead as getting a skip hire permit takes five working days.
  • Some well-established skip hire companies in Essex are M&K Skip Hire and A.D Drain. 
  • Or, you can quickly and safely book your skip hire through our sister site Loveskips.

We cover all of the Essex region and also neighboring postcodes including Maldon, Brentwood, Harlow, Rochford, Epping, Forest, Suffolk, Coastal, Ipswich, Babergh, Castle Point and Mid Suffolk.

Top Tips Before You Tip

There are a whopping 21 recycling centres in Essex so you won’t have to waste time driving miles to find your nearest one. Whilst these centres accept most types of household waste, it’s always best to check before setting out which items won’t be accepted.

If you need to dispose of business and commercial waste then you won’t be able to use these centres – it’s actually a criminal offence to do so! Instead, you can organise your own business waste collection. Always bear in mind that what may seem like trash to you could be just what someone else is looking for. Reuse Essex will help you find a charity which is happy to take your junk. Many charities even offer collection services where they’ll pick up your old items for free!
