What does rubbish removal include?

If you're looking for someone to take your rubbish away, local rubbish removal services dispose of all types of rubbish from households, gardens, offices, and other establishments. Often, a person would hire a removalist to collect dry items that are hard to dispose of. These items include old furniture, e-waste, garden waste, and construction debris.

On Airtasker, you can hire a rubbish removalist to get rid of rubbish. Taskers can pick up your items and transport them to the nearest charity or recycling centre. In no time, you can clear up your space and make room for new changes. Here are examples of rubbish removals you can book on Airtasker. 

Household rubbish removal

Household rubbish removal and disposal services can get rid of almost any type of home waste. Removalists collect items, such as sofas, mattresses, and other furniture. Your removalist may even help you dispose of your huge piles of scrap paper. House clearance services can take away items you no longer need. Take decluttering one step further with cleaning services. Or if you’re moving, feel free to book a man and van via Airtasker as well.

Office rubbish removal

Are you doing a big clear out, changing offices, or upgrading your office space? Office clearance services can handle small to big rubbish removal tasks. For example, a removalist can empty desk bins. Also, removalists can collect large furniture and deliver them to a buyer, charity, or recycling facility.

Other common office rubbish includes old papers, computers, printers, tables, chairs, cardboard boxes, filing cabinets, and shelving. Aside from office rubbish removal, you can book other types of commercial rubbish removal services on Airtasker. 

Garden rubbish removal

Green waste rubbish removal services ensure garden waste gets turned into compost or mulch. Whether you’re cleaning up after a storm or starting your landscaping project, our Taskers can help. Rubbish waste removalists load grass clippings, leaves, dirt, branches, weeds, and pulled-up concrete into a ute, truck, or trailer. 

Afterwards, they’ll take everything to the dump for sorting and disposal. Airtasker also connects you to affordable garden clearance services for simple decluttering. You may even book other waste removal and disposal services near you on our platform.

Construction rubbish removal

Get help with brick removal, scrap metal removal, and other types of building rubbish removal. Taskers can take your rubbish away with minimal fuss. Whether you’re renovating or building a new home, a construction rubbish removalist can help you clear your space quickly. Rubbish removalists load debris onto a truck then safely dispose of the material in the correct facility.
