Large Rubbish Removal Brisbane

Whether you’re moving house or just spring cleaning your home, it’s likely you have a lot of large rubbish that needs to be disposed of. While most people can manage smaller waste items in their normal weekly collections or even fill the car and head to the tip, larger items are more complex. If they don’t fit in the car, you’ll need to find other methods of large rubbish removal. The costs can add up quickly, but don’t worry because we’ve got the ultimate guide to saving money on bulky rubbish collection.

Large Rubbish Removal Brisbane

Arrange a council roadside pickup

You’ll need to check with your local council because they all offer different waste management services. However, most councils offer a collection of roadside waste (or ‘hard rubbish’). Some provide residents with two pickups each year, and you need to call and book them in advance. Alternatively, others have set council large item collection dates each year where all residents in a certain area can leave household rubbish out for collection.

There are also usually size limits, with typical restrictions on items over 2m in length or ones that two people can’t comfortably lift. Aside from that, it’s a great way to get rid of slightly larger items for free.

Donate to charities

Local charities are usually pretty welcoming of large household item donations. Providing they’re still in decent condition, charities can often sell items like tables, chairs, couches, bookcases, and even white goods and other appliances. For that reason, they’re also usually happy to send a truck around and collect them for you. So, even if you don’t get any money for them, you still get rid of them for free, and you’re also helping a worthy cause. Contact local charities to organise collections, as they’ll likely want to come and inspect the items first.

Advertise in local classifieds

Another terrific source of free bulky item removal is your local classifieds. The largest and most popular sources are Facebook Marketplace, Gumtree and Locanto, but there are others out there. Just take photos of your large items and include measurements in the advertisement. Also, mark the item as ‘pick up only’, ensuring a buyer comes to take it off your hands. Depending on the condition of your items, you can advertise them for a small price and make a little extra money. Otherwise, mark it as a giveaway – the main thing is that the large items leave your house without costing you anything.

Contact a second-hand store

Local second-hand stores may offer to come and inspect your items and even take them away for free. Depending on where you live, there are likely to be multiple stores dealing in refurbished household goods. Naturally, this only applies to items that are still in decent condition, but before you book a paid waste removal service, it’s worth seeing if local stores are interested in collecting some of your larger items, like furniture and appliances.

Break down larger items

If you’ve decided that certain larger items simply must go to the tip rather than being repurposed or sold, try to break them down as much as possible. Most large rubbish removal services charge per cubic metre, so the more you can break large items down, the cheaper it will be.

There are several ways to get rid of bulky furniture. Ideally, you want other people doing as much of the work for you as possible.

Roadside council pickups are also free, though there are usually limits on item size. You can also take things to the tip yourself if you have access to a vehicle, but the easiest option is to call a bulky rubbish collection service like Absolute Rubbish Removals to do the heavy lifting for you.
