London 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.

Top Tips Before You Tip

There are dozens of recycling centres across London. You can find your nearest by checking your local council’s website. It’s free for residents to dispose of household waste at these centres, but they all have different rules on what they will accept so be sure to read all the T&Cs before setting off.

If you’re looking to dispose of trade waste there are some recycling centres which will accept it for a charge, or a quick google search will help you find your nearest Waste Transfer Station.

Before you head to the tip, why not look at the possibilities of donating? There are over 1,000 charity shops in London that would be happy to take your old clothes or bric-a-brac. If your old furniture is still in a usable condition then the British Heart Foundation will collect it for free!
