Edinburgh council tip – Furniture disposal

Edinburgh council furniture disposal

Furniture disposal – Do you know how much Edinburgh city council charge for special uplifts, you might be surprised! It currently shows on council website 20 odd quid for up to 6 items, that’s pretty dam good value compared to our prices – truth be told we are not heavily subsidised to the point they must be losing money on behalf of the council tax payer so that might be something to do with it !

People often call man with a van edinburgh for uplifting old furniture disposal jobs that’s of little value and think its of little value to pay for its disposal almost to the point of expecting it to be taken for nothing, yes it s true …nothing! But as a wee local business I need to charge a rate that covers my time, van costs and possibly my assistant’s time and more importantly costs of the disposal bill I get from the private Edinburgh city tip, all depending on the weight of the rubbish involved. Do you know when we go to the tip the van is weighed in and out  and anything we throw into the landfill it needs to be paid for and currently its about £130 per ton , please don’t kid yourself its all treated in a holistic recycling way at the council tip most of its goes into landfill that’s how the council tip seems to operate. The private tip on the other hand operates to make money, quite often with council vans using it.
