1. Reuse options in Haringey
So, let's get started! Unless the item is beyond repair, the cheapest and most eco-friendly way to dispose of something is to donate it for reuse. You can either give your stuff to someone within your network for free. Or, instead, you can find a local reuse charity. These charities will either give the items to someone in need or alternatively sell them and use the proceeds for their charitable cause. Also, it's important to note that if you want to donate upholstered furniture to a charity, the item will need a fire safety certificate.
Donate to a Person
Assuming a friend or relative doesn't want the item, the simplest and most cost-effective way to donate is to list the item on LoveJunk and tick the 'reusable' box. This notifies reusers based in or around your location, and, as a result, if the item catches a reusers eye, they will then send you an offer via the LoveJunk app to pick it up. Again, the process is free and super easy.

3. Use a private licensed man & van waste collectors
If you can't use the council bulky waste collection service or donate your item, you will most likely need a licensed man & van rubbish collector. Both the council collection service and man and van waste contractors will visit your property, load up your junk, and finally, take it away for disposal.
The main differences between man and van waste collectors and the council's bulky collection service are the following three points. Firstly, speed is a significant factor, as a private man and van waste collector can respond much faster than the council. Secondly, labour, as collectors will collect from anywhere inside or outside the home, and lastly, types of waste, as private waste collectors can take all kinds of junk, including rubble and garden waste.
Furthermore, the pricing for a private man and van collection depends on the type and amount of waste and when you need it removed. For many more examples of Haringey bulky waste collections with photos and prices, see the LoveJunk Price Gallery.

5. Skip hire in Haringey
Another means of Haringey rubbish clearance is skip hire. Skips are helpful if, for example, you have lots of cumbersome, messy waste and would like to contain it all in one place. But, unlike a man & van collection, you need to load the skip yourself, and the price is fixed regardless of how much you fill it. Skip hire is also significantly more expensive than using a man & van waste collector because of the permits and license fees on top. For a look at skip hire in greater detail, please read our Ultimate Guide to Skip Hire for more information.

In general, it is good to use a licensed skip hire company that serves your local area. Here are some of the local skip hire companies within the borough of Haringey.
