Acceptable and Unacceptable Waste

If you need to clear space and save time, the rubbish clearance service from Cambridge Van Man is a great skip alternative for your waste clearance needs. Let us know what you want taken away and we will do all the lifting, loading and carrying for you. All our vans are capable of removing more waste than a standard skip and are a great alternative when space is limited and a skip hire isn’t a feasible option. To minimise the waste sent to landfills, there are a few items and materials that should not be put in a van. 

What can you put in a Van? 

We can collect the following types of items in our waste clearance vans: furniture, whitegoods, bric-a-brac, general rubbish, recycling, kitchenware and appliances*, mattresses and sofas*, garden waste, offcuts of ceramic, wood, metal and tools. Cambridge Van Man can also provide electronic waste and electronic equipment (WEEE)* disposals such as TV’s or fridge removal.

We are also able to take household microwaves, however, we cannot accept any industrial microwaves, fridges or freezers.

Do you need to dispose of bulky or large items? 

Cambridge Van Man can remove and dispose of bulky waste items in a cost-effective, efficient and sustainable manner. You will only pay for the items that you need disposing of alongside a low call out fee. Book a bulky waste collection today!
