Considerations When Choosing a Rubbish Removal Company

Joe Matthews

It can be hard to choose a rubbish removal company. You might want to get rid of years of built-up household waste, or you may be renovating and need to dispose of building rubble. Or you might have pulled up trees and rearranged the garden beds, creating a pile of branches and plants that need removing. How do you know which company to choose? Here are several aspects to consider.

Ethical Waste Removal

Many removal businesses get rid of rubbish ethically these days rather than dumping everything in a landfill. But there's no harm in checking that the company you opt for does so. Some household items are recyclable, such as mattresses. Additionally, appliances and electronics contain recyclable metals such as steel, aluminium and copper. Choose a business that will sort the rubbish for maximum recycling.

Getting rid of rubbish ethically also means appropriately disposing organic things such as food and green waste. You may think that throwing these things in a landfill can't hurt as they decompose anyway. However, even these natural items cause harm in a landfill as they release methane, which affects the earth's atmosphere. They need to be taken to treatment plants where they can decompose more safely and be transformed into compost. Your waste removal company should also have an ethical way to deal with such organic waste.

Communication Style

Another thing to consider, which is not so vital to the planet but essential to your peace of mind, is the company's communication style. They'll need to come personally to your place to get an accurate quote. Choose a business that will communicate closely with you. Do they give a two-hour window for an estimated time of arrival, for instance? This will free up the rest of your day to get other things done. Some rubbish removal companies will text you a few minutes before arriving, which will further help you to stay organised. This onsite quote may be on a different day than the anticipated rubbish removal or on the same day. You will then need to approve the quote before they go ahead with the job.

Longevity of the Business

Another way you could whittle down your list of appropriate companies is to consider how many years they've been running for. Rubbish removal is a complex business at the forefront of recycling and reducing landfill waste. If a company's been around for the long haul, you know they're committed to the industry. Of course, new businesses can be excellent, but they don't have the same longevity to prove their success. You could always check for independent online reviews of any company you're considering.
