How to Get Rid of Rubbish for Free

I knew this headline would get your attention. Who doesn’t love getting something for free? I know I do, and free rubbish removal makes it even sweeter because no one wants their rubbish, so having to pay to have it taken away is an even bigger hit.

So how do you get rid of rubbish for free? Well, unfortunately for you, I am not giving away our skip bins for free. However, I do have some handy tips to help you get rid of all your rubbish without having to hire a service or pay a cent. Sounds good, right?

Well, confession time. You can get rid of rubbish for free, but it will cost you your time and effort. Nothing in life is entirely free! So, providing you’re willing and able, the following suggestions will aid you in this task.

Let’s look at how you can get rid of your rubbish for free.

Give it away

There are so many avenues to avail to give your waste away, and you will be blown away by the things people want! Say it’s free and they will come! I recently did a renovation and removed a lot of all timber and corrugated iron. The wood had rotted, and the metal was rusted and had drill holes in it. It was no good to me or anyone… so I thought. I posted an ad on Marketplace saying they were free, and within an hour, it was all gone.

This is just one example. If you have anything old; whether its a couch or washing machine, mattress or fridge, even garden clippings; it may be useful to someone else; even if only for spare parts. These big items are the most painful to get rid of, so having someone else take them away is a beautiful thing.

Take it to the tip

Now, I did say you would need to make some effort to get rid of rubbish for free. The surefire way to do this is to load up your care and go to the tip. Sure, it may take you a few hours and a little petrol, but you can rest assured your efforts will see the back of the rubbish for good.

If you don’t have a large enough car, then you can ask friends or family to borrow a ute or trailer. Just post a message on Facebook out to your friends, you’re sure to get a favourable response.

Take it to an Op Shop

If your rubbish isn’t so much ‘rubbish’, but more so, ‘goods you no longer want’, you can do a good dead by taking it to a local Op Shop. Providing the goods are worthy of being sold, this is another convenient option for disposing of rubbish for free.

Recycle or reuse

My last type for you is to consider if and how you can reuse or recycle your rubbish to avoid it becoming ‘rubbish’. This may not be a viable option, but there is always a way to reuse things, you just have to be creative!
