Rubbish clearance is typically defined as the loading and removal of bulky waste by a professional team with a van or other means to take your unwanted items away. However, many of these services operate without consideration for the environment. As a result, waste that could be repurposed or recycled can end up in landfill unnecessarily.
BusinessWaste.co.uk is proud to be the most environmentally-friendly rubbish collection company in Leeds. We’re here to allow you to dispose of old furniture, electronics, mattresses, junk, and all other waste without any of it having to enter landfill.
It is estimated that there are anywhere between 350,000 to 500,000 sofas in Leeds alone! The average sofa has a lifespan of between 7-15 years, although in many circumstances, sofas are replaced before the end of their life cycle (for example, during a change of decor).
Ultimately, this means that many perfectly good sofas end up in landfill when they could have otherwise been repurposed. There are lots of ways your old sofa could be given a new lease of life when you don’t need it anymore – for example, you could:
Sell your old sofa
Want to make a little pocket money? Why not sell your old sofa and offset your earnings against the cost of a new one? This way, your sofa will go to a new home instead of ending up in a landfill site.
Donate your old sofa
Why not do your bit for charity by donating an old or unwanted sofa? There are hundreds of charity shops in Leeds that could raise funds by selling your donated end of life-cycle furniture. Alternatively, you could donate your sofa to friends or family, or ask if anybody on social media could use it.
Upcycling is one of the most lucrative interior design trends at the moment. If your old sofa is looking worn and tattered, you might enjoy taking on the creative pursuit of recovering it, repairing it and upcycling it! Alternatively, you could arrange for Business Waste to donate your sofa for upcycling via our network of furniture recycling projects.
There are over 38,000 registered businesses in Leeds, which is the leading district for finance outside of London. With so many offices in the area, it’s no surprise that there is a huge demand for office clearance services.
Some of the most common items disposed of during an office clearance in Leeds include:
Computers and associated peripherals
Is your Leeds office clearout WEEE compliant?
The WEEE Directive states that businesses are responsible for reducing the amount of waste electrical and electronic equipment that is sent to landfill sites. This means waste products like printers and computers should be recovered, reused and recycled. When undertaking an office clearance, you should ensure that your rubbish collection solution is WEEE compliant. Business Waste adheres to all government directives to ensure all WEEE waste items are repurposed.
Appliances such as fridges, freezers and washing machines can contain heavy metals and gases which can be harmful to the environment. It is therefore paramount that these appliances are reused or recycled. If your old white goods are still functional or repairable, why not take the environmentally-friendly option and donate them for use elsewhere?
Whether you are a homeowner undertaking some structural improvements or a project manager on a new build site, Business Waste can remove your construction waste for recycling. We’re also able to ensure sites are kept tidy during construction, too.
Bulky waste is the term given to rubbish which is too large for a standard bin collection. This can include tables, white goods, bathroom fixtures, sofas and consumer electronics. Business Waste is available to collect and recycle all forms of bulky waste, and we’re committed to ensuring it is responsibly handled and recycled.
There is a legal responsibility to ensure that controlled waste is stored, transported and processed without harming the environment. When you transfer rubbish to a waste disposal company, they are required to provide you with a Waste Transfer Note. This legal document covers businesses and their owners under the Environmental Protection Act (1990).
Some waste disposal companies will charge extra for the provision of a Waste Transfer Note. At BusinessWaste.co.uk, we don’t believe in charging for hidden extras – with us, what you see is what you get, which is why we’ll always provide a free waste duty of care. In addition to this, you can expect the following from us:
Fully insured drivers

Service is really good, had many problems in the past with previous suppliers however since been with Business Waste I have not had any problems what so ever. From the start of the agreement the sales team was really helpful and helped with my requirements. I am in a very tricky location with not much room to store a container however I was provided with many options from the sales rep to accommodate my requirements. Customer Service from the staff is outstanding. Definitely recommend 100%.
Great friendly service and really helpful staff!
