Skip or Dumpster hire for rubbish disposal

My family and I are returning to England to live in about 10 days. I have recycled pretty much everything I can, however, after 3 years I still have what seems like a huge amount of general rubbish to dispose of which can't go with our regular weekly garbage collection.

Things like torn suitcases, broken floor fan, duvets/pillows beyond their useful life, boxes of old junk from the garage/cellar, worn out toys, general garbage ...believe me, nothing anyone would use.

I'm at the stage now where I either want:

1) someone to come and collect it all in one job lot and dispose of it for me, i.e. is there a service whereby a "man with a van" will come and take everything away and dispose of it legally;

2) a skip (English) or dumpster (American) delivered for 24 hrs so I can throw it all in there and have it taken away.

Any recommendations for such services are appreciated.

p.s. I'm not asking to know where the nearest facilities are to dispose of this stuff myself.

Re: Skip or Dumpster hire for rubbish disposal

Have you asked Risi ?

Muldenservice is the DE term for a dumpster / skip

Job done...splendid, chaps!

Have a 4 cu m dumpster arriving next Wednesday morning from Spross. They spoke English and were extremely helpful.

Re: Skip or Dumpster hire for rubbish disposal

Bit of a strange question but how do I search for such a service in the UK? Do removal companies provide this service? I know I can hire a skip but does the skip company also provide disposal service?

Skip hire usually includes disposal of the contents. Even in the UK. (From experience)

In Geneva you jûst ring the "voirie" and they come round and you just have to leave it outside and they take it all away for free.
