What we can take

We can take anything you can put in a skip.  All types of non-hazardous junk and bulky waste including furniture, bric-a-brac, garden refuse, general rubbish, rubble, DIY and builder’s waste. We can also take electrical appliances, fridges and mattresses.

What we cannot take

For health & safety and regulatory reasons, our crews cannot remove the following.

  • Asbestos
  • Biological or Medical waste
  • ‘Box’ TVs / monitors (ie. CRTs) – but flat screen TVs/monitors are OK!
  • Gas bottles or Fire extinguishers

  • Paint or paint cans (unless empty)
  • Raw meat or raw fish (unless packaged)
  • Toxic substances, noxious chemicals & solvents

Man & Van Rubbish Clearance

  • Much Cheaper than Skip hire
  • No extra cost & delay from skip licenses

Skip Hire is Expensive

  • Twice the carbon footprint
  • Skip permit fee if on road

Skip hire costs £240 (vs. £216 for AnyJunk)

Why waste your money hiring a skip? The average price for a 6 yard skip in the UK is £240 (before adding any extras for skip permits etc). AnyJunk costs just £216 for a 7 yard (Large) clearance. We collect from anywhere on the property, we sweep up thoroughly before we go, and we recycle 93%. We also offer next day collection.

When To Use A Skip?

We love man & van clearance.  It’s cheaper, easier and better for the environment.  But we’d recommend using a skip if you are carrying out a large building project (eg. basement conversion or side extension) that will be generating lots of very heavy, loose waste like rubble and soil. But be warned – skips tend to cost significantly more than a man & van clearance. Plus, if you put a skip on your road, you will normally need to pay extra for a skip permit from your council and possibly a controlled parking zone suspension. For more detailed information about Skip Hire, go to our skip hire guide, pages on mini skip hire, skip sizes, and London skip hire prices, and to order a skip anywhere in the UK go to our sister site – Loveskips.
