Waste Removal in Sutton and the South East | Load Sizes

At General Waste Ltd, we deliver the complete waste removal service for domestic and commercial clients in Bromley, Croydon, Sutton and all surrounding locations in London and the South East. We offer the region’s most competitive prices on rubbish clearances, which are fair and transparent – just like our great rates for skip hire. As one would expect from a waste clearance company with more than 10 years of local trading experience, we work closely with our clients to provide a service that is fast, reliable, professional and friendly.


On this page, we present a guide to help you gauge the amount of material you have, and to help you help us when arranging a rubbish removal. A full load is the equivalent to 12-yard skip hire, a half load equates to 6-yard skip hire and a quarter load is the same as 4-yard skip hire. If you have 50 to 60 black bags to collect from site, we class this as a 6-yard load.


Waste Removal Load Sizes


5-Yard Loads


A typical 5-yard load is equivalent to 40 to 50 black bags in size. This load is a perfect choice for a basic household rubbish clearance and ideal for small amounts of soil and rubble. General Waste Ltd collects from domestic properties in the Bromley, Croydon and Sutton areas. Our convenient location in Beckenham gives us easy access into the South East.


6-Yard Loads


A standard 6-yard load is equivalent to 50 to 60 black bags. This load size suits bulkier items, such as rubble, stones and construction waste from intermediate domestic and small commercial waste clearance projects. While it isn’t necessary to load waste into black bags, we do find this is the easiest way for customers and clients to calculate their loads.


7-Yard Loads


The 7-yard load is equivalent to 60 to 70 black bags. This load size is similar to the 6-yard load but makes a better choice for rubbish clearances of bigger and bulkier items, such as white goods and furniture. The 7-yard option works best for large-scale domestic and medium-sized commercial projects in Bromley, Croydon, Sutton or the surrounding areas.


8-Yard Loads


An 8-yard load is equivalent to 80 to 90 black bags. This is the correct-sized load for the biggest domestic waste removal and for commercial clearances of an intermediate scale. Calculating the load size on these projects may be more difficult because it’s impossible to put bulkier items into bags, so always work to a yard in size larger if you feel unsure.


9-Yard Loads


A 9-yard load is equivalent to 90 to 100 black bags. This is a suitable load size for rubbish clearance projects following major renovations and refurbishments. Larger commercial removals and small to intermediate-sized industrial waste clearances will benefit from this large-scale option, which is also big enough to accommodate office and IT equipment.


10-Yard Loads


A 10-yard load is equivalent to 100 to 110 black bags. Rubbish removals of this size, using our adapted van, cover everything from multiple items of furniture and white goods to heavier industrial waste. This size of load is most popular with commercial and industrial clients in the Bromley, Croydon, Sutton, Greater London and South East areas.
