Waste Removal Services with Clearabee

Read Time: 4 mins

When it comes to waste removal services, it can often be difficult to decide which service is the most appropriate to use for which type of waste. Luckily, Clearabee know a thing or two about rubbish removals and it’s a pleasure to pass this knowledge on to you. Without further ado, let’s make a start and look at which waste removal services work for which waste streams…


Bulky Waste Removal Services

As a waste stream, bulky items are amongst the most commonly-collected by rubbish removal services. This is usually due to the fact that items such as sofas, mattresses and wardrobes can be difficult enough for people to remove from their property, let alone to transport to their Household Recycling Centre.

Sadly, this can be a reason that items such as the above are often seen in laybys, public car parks and common areas; they’re too sizeable to shift and there’s a cost implication in hiring a rubbish removals company to do it on your behalf. But of course, that cost implication is nothing compared to the criminal charges and financial penalties that could face individuals who are found guilty of fly-tipping or hiring a company who themselves are proven guilty of fly-tipping.

This is where Clearabee’s ‘Man and Van’ style clearance service comes in. Not only are Clearabee registered waste carriers, but we supply our customers with a digital Waste Transfer Note upon the completion of every rubbish removal. This note records what items were collected, the respective recycling rate as well as the items’ final destination. This record comprises your Duty of Care and is evidence of due diligence, which means you can have confidence in Clearabee.

These waste removal services are rapid reaction, on-demand and operating in your area now. Have a look at our ‘Man and Van’ pages for more on our bulky waste removal services or visit our specialist sofa removal service page.


Renovation Waste Removal Services


Whether it’s a kitchen installation or a bathroom rip-out, if you’ve got a renovation project coming up then you’re going to be needing either a skip or a Skip Bag. The secure containment of waste is essential when undertaking this kind of project. Not only does a skip or Skip Bag reduce the risk of environmental hazards or injury, but it keeps the whole area that little bit cleaner and tidier too.

Our skip hire period is 14 days, which should give you plenty of time to complete your project and fill your skip before your collection is due. However, if your project is likely to proceed at a more leisurely pace, then our Skip Bags might be the right service for you. From the point of purchase, you have six months within which to fill your Skip Bag and book your collection, which provides something of an insurance policy in case your renovations take longer than previously planned.


Garden Waste Removal Services


When it comes to garden waste, Clearabee can offer an array of services so you are able to select the one which is most suitable for you. If you’re removing items like de-constructed sheds, garden furniture and BBQs, the most cost-effective and efficient option may well be the ‘Man and Van’ service. If it’s merely cuttings, trimmings and twigs, then (depending on the volume), you may be best served by our increasingly popular rubbish removal bags: more affectionately known as Skip Bags.

Whereas, if you’re removing rubble, bricks or soil, then the more appropriate option is our skip hire service. Even then, you will need to be mindful of weight restrictions when removing heavy, dense waste such as this – be sure to discuss this with our friendly office staff when booking our skip hire services.


Hazardous Waste Removal Services


As the name implies, hazardous waste removal is a complicated and dangerous practice and one that you should approach with extreme caution if you’re attempting it for yourself. Whether you have asbestos, petrol or paint that needs removing, you’re advised to seek professional advice before taking any action.

In some instances, many rubbish removal companies will not be able to assist you due to health and safety or compliance concerns, but if you contact Clearabee in the first instance, we can usually provide a bespoke solution. This article can point you in the right direction regarding how to remove hazardous waste.


WEEE Removal Services

Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment, or WEEE as they’re more conveniently referred to, can include items as small as hair straighteners or items as large as American-style fridge freezers and anything in between. Unbeknownst to many, these items cannot simply be sent to landfill due to the negative impact on the environment caused by lead, arsenic and cadmium which are often a composite material of WEEE items.

If transferring these items to your local Household Recycling Centre is not an option that’s available to you, then you can count on Clearabee. Our ‘Man and Van’ style waste removal service is ideal for removing bulky electrical items, usually on the very same day. As with all of Clearabee’s rubbish removal services, over 95% of the items we collect are diverted from landfill, meaning that they are recycled, repurposed or reused wherever possible. The recycling rate for your individual collection will detail that specific recycling rate.
