Where does all my rubbish go?
We will take your rubbish to licensed recycling centres, we strive to keep as much material out of landfills as possible. We also donate suitable items to charities so they can have a second life (such as furniture, clothing, books, tools), helping to keep our services as eco friendly as possible.
We strive to reduce the amount of material that ends up in landfills by aiming for a 90% re-use or recycling rate. All items collected are separated into those that can be reused and then any items that cannot be reused but can still be recycled. Finally, the small portion of items that do not fit into these categories will be safely disposed of at an official landfill site. This way we can ensure that as little as possible goes to waste.
When are you available for clearances?
We can come at a time to suit you to collect your rubbish, we can work around your schedule and any restrictions to clear your property quickly and efficiently.
What happens on the day?
On the agreed date and time, BML Waste Management will arrive promptly with an appropriate vehicle - either a van or truck depending on the size of the job. We will then quickly and efficiently load up the vehicle and leave.
Why should I use a clearance service and not a skip?
Opting for our man & van rubbish removal services is more convenient than hiring a skip and can be more cost-effective too. With our service, the hard work and heavy lifting is taken care of - something that you would need to do yourself if you were to hire a skip. Furthermore, you will need to wait for the delivery and collection of a skip as well as potentially needing a permit if it's parked in the road - all of this hassle is avoided with our man & van service.
Hiring a skip usually incurs a set fee, regardless of the volume of waste that needs disposing of. With BML Waste Management you only pay for what is loaded up and removed – often making it more cost-effective than opting for skip hire.
