The Cost of Cardboard box removal

The typical price for a licensed waste contractor to remove the equivalent of a car boot load of cardboard folded down is £25 - £80 including VAT. The exact price depends on how soon you need the collection if you are disposing of any other waste types in the same collection, what time of day and day of the week you need the collection, and where it's being collected from. For example, a collection from a top floor of a block of flats with no lift will cost more than a collection from street level with easy parking.


How to keep collection costs as cheap as possible

There are a few different ways you can keep the collection costs cheap:

  • Keep the cardboard dry - wet cardboard is heavier than dry and can be a pain to collect because it can often become crumbly when wet
  • Flatten down your cardboard - this will save the collector time and won't take up as much room in the van
  • Separate packaging and polystyrene - and any other waste you may have e.g wheelie bin waste) from the cardboard
  • Place all your cardboard waste outside so it's quick and easy to collect
