Each year, Maidstone Households throw away over 60,000 tonnes of rubbish, of which over 65% could easily be recycled. Contact us for more advice.
By simply reducing, reusing and recycling our waste, we can reduce the strain on natural resources, reduce the harmful effect we have on the environment and reduce the cost of waste disposal.
If you have a lot of junk that needs to be taken care of, but you aren’t sure what can and cannot be recycled, don’t fret and let the experts take over. Rubbish Clearance Kent provides commercial, domestic and recycling services to your local areas. In addition, they also provide garden clearance services to help give you the garden you have always wanted. Find out more.
We can all make a difference!

Remember to recycle over during busy times of the year!
We all know what it’s like during Christmas and Easter, things get hectic and we often forgot to do things that we wouldn’t normally forget. For example, recycling. See how you can reduce energy.
This Christmas people in the UK will generate an extra three million tonnes of rubbish and the amount of wrapping paper thrown away could cover almost 7,000 football pitches! So please remember to recycle this Christmas!
