Some items cost us more to dispose of than others, therefore you may have to pay a small supplement charge to cover our costs. Please refer to our prices page for more information about small supplements.

Why can't you take hazardous materials?

We aren't insured or licensed to carry any hazardous materials. Therefore we are unable to remove them for our customers. If you need to remove hazardous waste the best advice we can give you is to contact your local council and they will tell you how you can dispose it.

What about the other items?

We're unable to take the other items because our waste transfer partners refuse to take them. Because of this we are unable to provide a collection service for these types of items; the best easiest option is to ring your local council and ask how you can remove them easiest.

Cheaper than a skip

Our vans hold twice as much as a regular 6 yard builders skip and are a perfect skip hire alternative.

We only charge for the amount of junk we take which means we're cheaper than any skip hire Leicester.

We do all the loading for you and even sweep up afterwards.
