Kitchen Disposal Tips

Removing an old kitchen


Hello guys. Tom Pickering here, Clearance and Cleanup.

In this short blog I'm going to talk to you about the removal and disposal of your old kitchen.

Kitchen Spec.

Kitchens come in many different shapes and sizes. The main material involved in a kitchen is obviously timber, but quite often they can have granite or quartz worktops. There is also a sink, which often is made of metal, and then you have the appliances which again are going to be mainly metal. If a fridge or freezer needs to be disposed of these have to be removed at an extra disposal charge due to the gasses and the insulation inside them.  Unfortunately, they simply can’t be disposed of in the same way as other appliances.

Man And Van Collections.

When using a man and van clearance service, or hiring a skip, you will be asked how many yards of rubbish you have.  To give you some idea, a kitchen from a two bedroom terrace house or possibly a three bedroom semi, is generally around eight yards in size. That’s the amount of space it will fill in a skip or a van.

As mentioned above, you have two choices for disposal.

You could order an eight yard builder's skip. The kitchen fitter or the installation company you are using will rip the old kitchen out and fill the skip.  But this isn't always an option because you may live in an area where skips are not allowed to be placed outside your property, or the local council will not issue a permit to allow it.

The second option would be to stack it outside neatly and book a man and van rubbish collection like Clearance and Cleanup. A two man team will come and remove your rubbish from anywhere on your property. Whether this is inside, outside, front garden or back garden, and we will take it away and dispose of it correctly.

Large Kitchens.

If you do have a larger kitchen, you may need to go up to a 10 yard collection. A very large kitchen could potentially go to a 14 yard collection. This would include all the cardboard from your new kitchen and from your new appliances, as well as all the carcasses and appliances from your old kitchen.

Save Money.

One of the easiest and cheapest ways to save money is to make sure that everything is stacked neatly outside.  If you have an easy, accessible location this will save time for the team removing it and so make it cheaper for you.  As will, making sure that all tiles from your kitchen splashbacks and your kitchen floors are bagged, along with any general builders’ rubble or small items of rubbish. The removal team will happily bag things up for you, but this takes time and, therefore, increases the cost to you. If you can separate wood from metal, stack cardboard neatly, etc, it helps with recycling the different streams of rubbish and so, again, will help save you money in our time.
