Not sure how much waste you have, or how to calculate it?
If you’re standing there scratching your head and wondering how you even begin to calculate how much waste you have, then our waste calculator will help you out.
Have you got a mixture of waste, some furniture as well as some other items? You can use our waste calculator to add all items together to give you an estimated size in cubic yards as well as how much it will cost to get it removed. You can explore a house, garden, and office to add all your desired items into a basket. From there we can even recommend the best type of service to have your waste collected.
Don't just take our word for it
