The two key factors that determine waste collection pricing are staff wages and responsible waste disposal.
For you, that means two things.
- Firstly, the quicker you can make the process, the less money the company will need to spend on staff wages to cover your job. Anything you can do to save the removal company time should have a positive effect on the price. If you can clear, sort and load the waste yourself, you could lower the quote.
- Secondly, the easier you make it for the company to dispose of your waste responsibly, the less you should have to pay.
Pre-sorting your rubbish makes it easier for a removal company to dispose of it responsibly.
For example, if you can keep garden waste separate from furniture, this will save the removal company time when they come to recycle it.
Be aware that choosing an unreliable service just because it’s the cheapest option could end up costing you more in the long run.
If a company is quoting a low price, it could mean they plan to dispose of your waste illegally. In the case that your waste is fly-tipped and it can be traced back to you, you could be fined up to £5,000.
