General Waste Ltd like to offer that bit more than many of its rubbish clearance rivals in Streatham and the surrounding areas. By being honest and upfront about what we do, it helps us to retain a large percentage of repeat custom that use our waste removal services on a regular basis. We’re always on hand to offer advice about our rubbish removal and commercial waste clearance services, so we’ve decided to share some of the answers to regularly asked questions we receive, on this page.
What sort of waste removal clearance do you provide?
As long as it’s not too heavy for two people to lift, our non-hazardous waste clearance from your Streatham site or home is available at a time suitable to you. This could be anything from discarded bric-a-brac to industrial rubbish clearance.
Are your rubbish removal services cheaper than skip hire?
Our services are more cost-effective as we are able to turn up to your Streatham address, carry out the rubbish removal and leave, sometimes within 10 minutes. Whereas a skip has to hired, has to be filled by yourself and then has to be collected. This can take up to a week.
How much waste clearance can be collected by your van?
We can get the equivalent of around 130 black bags in our special rubbish clearance van. This amount would normally fill an industrial size 12 yard skip, but at a fraction of the cost. All our waste removal services in Streatham are competitively priced.
Are you a licenced waste carrier?
Yes we’re licenced to carry out non-hazardous waste clearance. We also provide an emergency 24 hour call out service for domestic and commercial customers in Streatham and the South East.
Will I have to be on site when you provide the rubbish clearance?
If you tell us beforehand exactly where we need to carry out the rubbish removal, then we’ll carry on regardless. We do recommend that a member of your team is there though, just to be on the safe side.
Is there a limit of how much rubbish you can take?
We will fill the van up to its legal limit but if there’s more waste to be collected, then our waste removal team will can come back and collect the rest from your Streatham site. We don’t collect any hazardous goods whatsoever (paints, batteries, chemicals, etc.)
