Frequently Asked Questions

Our team will arrive at your home or site on the agreed date and within the agreed timeframe. All you need to do is show us where the waste is and we will carry out the waste removal until a quarter, half or full van is loaded according to your initial order. The waste will then be taken back to our Oxford site for processing and recycling.

It’s an easy three step process:

  1. Use our online waste calculator to determine how much van space you need for your waste collection.
  2. Either use the online booking tool to book your waste collection or call our Customer Service Team on 01865 346 000 to book a collection slot.
  3. When we arrive, just point us in the direction of the waste to collect and we’ll load the van.

We will then process everything at our own Waste Transfer station using the latest processing  technology to maximise recycling and avoid sending anything to landfill.

The cost depends on the volume of waste you have to be collected. We have an online waste collection calculator to work out how much van space you’ll need. It gives you an accurate price based on that estimate.

We offer load sizes from up to 2 items all the way to an XL load. You simply assess how much space you need and book the service accordingly. You can use our online waste collection calculator to help. If you require more space on the collection day, we can make that happen with a call to our office.

Ideally any small loose waste should be bagged/boxed ready for collection. Larger items such as beds, wardrobes and shelving units should be dismantled prior to collection. All electrical items must be disconnected from mains electricity.

Yes, our team will advise the best course of action to take for your waste removal, even without off-street parking.
