How do I book?

You’ll need to call us on 0800 138 9100 and we’ll sort it out from there!

What areas do you cover? We cover all areas in Surrey as well as London.

Will my rubbish be recycled? We are fully licensed by the Environment Agency so we aim to recycle 100% of the waste we collect and prevent it from going to a landfill when possible.

Is the price I receive over the phone the actual price? Yes. If the information provided about the amount of waste you need to clear is accurate then the price over the phone is the rate to pay; there are no hidden costs added to our services.

How can I pay? Payment can be made by cash, cheque, credit/debit card or BACS payment.

When do you arrive to collect waste? We arrive at the time you specify to suit your needs rather than giving you a rough timeframe.

Do you clean up the property afterwards? Yes. Once the rubbish has been cleared, the area around it will be cleaned up to remove any remaining debris.

Can I arrange regular waste collections for my business? Yes. We can provide regular commercial waste collections for your business.

Can you remove hazardous materials? We can remove some hazardous materials but not others. You can find a full list of what we can and can’t remove here.

An item I want to have removed isn’t on your list; does that mean you can’t remove it? Not necessarily. A quick call to a member of our team can provide you with information as to whether an item can be taken or not.

Why should I use you over a skip hire service? Skip hire is a more expensive option when you consider the cost of acquiring a skip permit and the fact that you may be paying more than you need to, based on the volume of waste. With us, you know the service cost is based on how much we take away and nothing more which will be made clear before the clearance starts.

    - Mr Simmons, Bagshot
  • What our clients say

    Turned up on time, friendly and pleasant. Very good advice on size of load. Got on with the job quickly. Easier than using a skip. They load it up and take it away so it isn’t lying around in the street.

    - Chris L, Reigate
  • What our clients say

    Had recently done refurbishments and the rubbish was piled high outside. I called the company and they came and gave the quote the same day. I accepted the quote and the men started straight away. The rubbish was cleared within 30 minutes and nothing was left. I would highly recommend and definitely use again.

    - Martin, Woking
  • What our clients say

    They arrived the same day. The guys were polite, courteous and meticulous. When finding items of possible value, they asked each time before loading. Swept up and tidied. Fantastic value. Skip companies should be very worried. Much cheaper than any skip, Builders take note!!!! They even told me the waste station they would be using so I could track the load for peace of mind.
