Rubbish Clearance in Dorking | Top Tips for Managing a DIY Clearance

Want to make the waste clearance side of a DIY project in Dorking a hassle-free and efficient process? Our skip hire company has compiled valuable tips to help you out. Taking on a DIY project inevitably leads to waste generation so hiring skips, or rubbish clearance services, will be particularly handy after renovation work, or after clearing a garden. 1st Class Disposal Ltd’s goal is to simplify DIY rubbish removals so that you have time for the job at hand.

To ensure a smoother waste clearance both during and after any DIY project, we strongly advise that you read the following advice:

Tip 1 – Assess the Waste

Start by estimating the amount of waste, and the types, your DIY project will produce. The project's size is a key factor in determining the waste volume. Understanding the scale of a rubbish clearance or rubbish removal project in Dorking will help you decide whether you require skip hire services, grab hire or man-and-van waste clearances. It might be the case that you will only expect a small amount of waste which can go to a local recycling centre.

Certain waste materials from DIY projects, such as leftover paint, mastic tubes and solvents, can’t be put into skips or cleared and will require an alternative disposal method. We can happily advise you on waste of this nature.

Tip 2 – Consider the Scale

The size of your DIY project plays a key role in determining how much waste it generates. For instance, a small garden clearance will not produce as much waste as a kitchen or bathroom renovation. Knowing the job’s size well in advance allows for better planning, choosing appropriate rubbish removal services and more efficient waste clearances which work to your budget.

Never overspend on unnecessary services. Our skip hire company has skips in a choice of sizes which we recommend to you based on expected volumes. We make frequent drop-offs and collections in the Dorking area.

Tip 3 – Be Responsible

Rubbish clearances from DIY projects can increase the risk of fly-tipping if not properly handled. Fly-tipping incidents have increased dramatically in recent times to burden local authorities. As the waste producer, you bear the legal responsibility to ensure an ethical disposal. Avoid unlicensed rubbish removal services because unreputable traders contribute heavily to fly-tipping.

Only choose a skip hire company or waste clearance specialist with a waste carrier’s licence issued under terms set by the Environment Agency.

Tip 4 – Choose the Right Service

With the waste volume and composition known, you can now select the most appropriate waste clearance service for your DIY project in Dorking. Skips are always a popular choice but keep cost in mind. If you are undertaking your own refurbishment or renovation work, you might not want a skip hire service because you’ll be too busy to complete your own rubbish removal work.
