Skip Hire and Rubbish Clearance in Croydon | The Benefits

Some of the benefits of skip hire and rubbish clearance services seem obvious but others are less so. On this page, we showcase some of the advantages hiring a skip or organising a waste removal can bring to your project. At General Waste Ltd, we’re committed to the delivery of professional rubbish removal services for Croydon’s domestic and commercial sectors. The addition of skip hire to our services reinforces the strength of this commitment.


We hire out skips and perform waste clearances with a strong environmental outlook and take materials to licensed transfer stations close to Croydon for ethical recycling.


This page looks at the many different benefits skip hire and rubbish clearance services, provided using adapted vans, bring to projects across Greater London and the South East.




General Waste Ltd offers convenience with all of its waste removal services, irrespective of whether you use us for skip hire or a wait-and-load collection. Skip hire, a traditional form of waste management, leaves you free to load a delivered container at a pace that suits the progress of the project – perfect for property renovations and for use on construction sites.


If you’d rather we took care of the hard work on your behalf, we’ll manage your rubbish removal personally by coming out to your Croydon address and collecting at a day and time suitable to you. We park up our van, collect your materials using our own manpower and take it away. All you have to worry about is calling us to make a prompt appointment.

The time you save by leaving our waste clearance team to take care of the removal work means you and your workforce can get on with the things you should actually be doing.




Our skip hire and rubbish clearance services offer cost-effective alternatives to tip runs at prices that are hard to beat. Carrying out a waste removal personally eats into your time and some waste transfer stations in the Croydon area might not accept all of the materials you have on board. This could ultimately leave you having to pay more for an extra disposal anyway – hardly a cost-effective option when you’ve gone to all that hard work.


We offer competitive prices on skip hire and rubbish removals, balancing out the time and money you could lose when performing a clearance that may not run exactly to plan.


Add in the manpower required to load skips or to fill the car, and factor in the potential damage to your own vehicle if you don’t act with absolute care, and it easy to see why so many domestic customers and commercial clients in Croydon choose skip hire and waste clearance services to keep their homes and workplaces clear of unwanted materials.


Environmental Care


As you might expect from genuine rubbish clearance professionals, we pass over collected materials for recycling. General Waste Ltd disposes of waste collected from skips or by van by taking it to nearby waste transfer stations. These facilities follow government-led directives and recycle up to 90% of material derived from skip hire and waste removal services. This minimises the amount of waste a transfer station sends to landfill sites.


Your rubbish removal factors in hazardous and non-hazardous types of waste, and we always take materials to a suitable processing facility. Our company has an environmental and recycling policy that ties in closely with current directives, an important service element that gives homeowners and businesses in Croydon the highest levels of reassurance.




With so many years of combined experience in the fields of skip hire and waste removal, our team is in the best possible position to know exactly what can and what cannot be collected or recycled. Some rubbish clearance companies draw the line at what they’ll take away but we know how to handle materials that some parts of the waste management sector prefer to avoid. This includes electrical and white goods which need handling in a certain way.


Ultimately, we want to make our skip hire and waste clearance services as simple as possible. Experience helps us to be more flexible and this reflects not just in the materials we accept, but also in how we process them afterwards. Knowledge is just one more thing that makes us the trusted choice for rubbish removals in Croydon and the South East area.
