Home Rubbish Removal and Disposal York
As of 2019, York ranked 144th in the national recycling league table, meaning that improvements can definitely be made. With help from Divert, York can increase its recycling statistics with our fast, easy, and reliable service.
According to these statistics, the percentage of household waste that was recycled in York was 45%, which is less than the UK average. A spokesperson for the City of York Council said it would continue to look at how it can drive up its recycling figures in 2021, as it believes that what happens to its recycled goods holds the utmost importance.
None of our waste is sent to landfill, and all non-recyclable waste is sent to waste recovery plants. Any remaining organic or recyclable waste that has not been put out to be recycled is separated and used for energy.
Office Rubbish Removal and Disposal York
York is a thriving British city that attracts millions of tourists, meaning there’s no shortage of offices and businesses. However, there are a number of different waste management services that minimise waste caused by commercial properties.

We can take any kind of office waste, including electrical equipment and large furniture, ensuring they’re recycled; everything from transport to equipment and labour is included.

Man and Van Rubbish Removal York
Generally, this type of service works by moving items; for example, shifting waste from A to B. It’s essentially what the name suggests – a man with a van, who removes your waste and takes it to a disposal site. Divert’s man-and-van services for York are available to anyone with unwanted waste, and you can book online. However, we don’t stop once the waste is collected – it’s then taken to the most appropriate place for its next life: recycling, waste energy, or one of many other environmentally friendly locations. We aim to avoid putting anything to landfill.
Washing Machine, Tumble Dryer, Fridge and Freezer Disposal York
As of 2020, there are well over 80,000 households in York. When we think about white goods, this means that there are approximately 80,000 washing machines, fridges, and freezers in the city – maybe more! If people fail to recycle these white goods when they needed replacing, York could find itself with a huge surplus of waste.
Luckily, we offer a fridge and freezer and domestic appliance collection service from households. If you’re looking for a flexible service, Divert’s fleet of purple vans can help.
Sofas need to be properly disposed of, as they can last a very long time. It’s not something you have to worry about frequently, as the average household only changes their sofa every 11 years. However, 40% of the bulky waste that is thrown out in the UK is furniture, namely armchairs and sofas.
Sofa removal can be frustrating, as you can’t use your regular bin collection service due to their size. If your sofa has lived out its life, recycling it is the way to go. At Divert, we can take this frustration out of your hands.
Bulky Waste Collection York
1.6 billion tonnes of bulky waste is thrown out each year in the UK. This refers to furniture, mattresses, garden chairs, beds, and other large household items that can’t be disposed of with your normal collection service.
You can book a bulky item collection online, where we offer you an expert bulky removal service for a fixed cost.
