Rubbish Removal at a glance
The heart of what the Topwasters team is rubbish removal. This is a very broad term that covers a lot of things. For example, we also do a lot of recycling as well as merely hauling things off to the nearest waste disposal site. After all, we are licensed and approved waste handling agents – and proud of it – so we can certainly do the lot when it comes to helping rid you of your rubbish.
OK, what do we mean by “the lot” when it comes to removing rubbish? If we break it down for you a bit, the different components of rubbish removal are:
- Rubbish removal
- Litter collection
- Garbage collection (rubbish and waste disposal)
- Rubbish sorting
We provide all of these services London-wide to homes and businesses. As a wee aside, please bear in mind that our list of prices applies to the basic service (plain old rubbish collection) and if you need one of the more complicated or involved rubbish removal services, then there will be an extra charge involved. However, we still aim to keep our rates very reasonable and competitive. Talk to us and tell us all about exactly what you need if you want to know more.
Same Day Waste Removal
This is the most straightforward of all of our waste disposal services. Here’s the situation: you’ve got a whole lot of rubbish that needs to be taken away. You’ve got it bagged or binned, or else the whole lot is shoved into a corner somewhere (behind the garage, for example). You know that you want the wretched junk gone but you just don’t have time to load the whole lot into a van or trailer, weave your way through traffic to the nearest dump – oops, we now call them resource recovery centres or waste processing sites not that we know about the importance of conserving resources and/or the harm of excessive waste. Anyway, you don’t have the time or energy to get rid of the rubbish, so you call us in. We come in, we load whatever it is you don’t want and take it away to the appropriate drop-off point.
And that’s all there is to it: you want it gone and we take it away. The pricing system we use for these basic services is based on weight and/or the proportion of our van that gets filled with your old rubbish. You’ll find more details on the pricing page that will give you an idea – and we promise you that it’s not hard to understand.
At times, our clients find that the litter or waste that they went removed isn’t all in one big heap but is scattered all over the place. For example, perhaps your company has hosted a trade function or some other big do in your parking lot or in a large room indoors. After the function is over, you’ve got the problem of old napkins, paper cups and plates, wrappers and other debris all over the place. In this case, you not only need someone to take the litter away, but you also need someone to pick the lot up.
When you’re confronted by a lot of litter, it might seem a bit overwhelming, but the good news is that the Topwasters team will come and not only take the litter away but we’ll get out the trusty pointy sticks and collect the mess up and bag it as well – sorting the recyclables from the non-recyclables as we go.
Garbage Collection And Waste Disposal
From time out of mind, where there have been cities, there have been people who have had the job of coming in and taking away people’s household rubbish or business rubbish to where it needs to go. Thankfully, nightsoil collection has gone the way of phrenology, arsenic-based cosmetics and the idea that education makes women infertile. However, the tradition of putting out the rubbish bins so someone can collect them once a week or twice a week or fortnightly or whatever suits your situation best remains. This sort of reverse Santa Claus job is one of the things we do.
Did you know that the average London household produces 1 tonne of rubbish every year? That’s a lot of rubbish that needs to be taken from A to B. If you need your rubbish taken away regularly, then have a chat to us. Although this isn’t one of our speciality areas, we do provide these services if you need them. We take away commercial waste, household waste, greenwaste – all kinds of waste! As we are licensed top-tier waste handlers, we can take it all, including some of the trickier stuff like building site waste and food waste. We ensure that every single type of waste product gets to the most appropriate site, whether it’s to a charity shop or to one of the many depots around London where they take rubbish and incinerate it (while minimizing emissions, of course) to generate electricity.
