Waste which can be incinerated or be ‘treated’ in order to be ‘rendered safe’ in a suitable, permitted (licensed) facility – usually alternative treatment plants (ATPs) – should be put in an orange bin.
Cytotoxic and cytostatic waste which is incinerated in a suitably permitted or licensed facility must be put in a purple bin.

Frequently Asked Questions
We remove waste, rubbish and unwanted items from commercial premises, construction sites and domestic houses and gardens. Our service includes a two man team who are insured and licensed to load the waste materials – from anywhere on the property – onto our trucks, sweep up after the job is complete and transport the waste to a registered transfer station.
We can remove any item as long as it can be lifted by two people. For example, but not limited to:
Furniture: beds, sofas, tables, chairs, armchairs, cabinets, wardrobes, computer desks
Appliances: cookers, washing machines, fridges, freezers, microwaves, tumble dryers, stereos, televisions, printers, fax machines, computers
Garages, Lofts and Cellars: tools, lawn mowers, boxes, clothes, books
Garden: shrubs, bushes, branches, mud, concrete, soil, turf, compost, garden furniture, sheds
Construction and Demolition: plaster, plasterboard, pallets, glass, concrete, packaging, metal
Roofing and Flooring: tiles, carpets, wood
We can’t collect certain hazardous materials such as paint cans, motor oils, chemicals, solvents, asbestos, medical or biological waste but your local authority can offer advice on how you should dispose of them. Certain items, which we can collect, are classified as hazardous waste because of the way in which they need to be disposed. These items include computer monitors, fridges and freezers. There is a supplement rate for these items because our disposal costs are higher.
Yes. Our employees are fully licensed and our trucks are fully insured including cover against any damage caused to a client’s property when removing waste from those premises.
We charge by volume – for example how much space has been taken up in the truck. However, if your materials are particularly heavy – for example, is it soil or rubble – we charge based on weight.
We will try our best to service and accommodate your needs. Please ask us to organise an ‘out of hours collection’.
Yes. Our teams are supplied with safety boots and branded clothing. A spare set is always in the truck so they are clean and presentable for the next collection.
Most waste is recycled or reused. The items are sorted and disposed of in a way that is least damaging to the environment. We give items to charity shops, or it is taken to specialist recycling facilities.
