How our man and van service
in York works

Our York man with a van service is simple, efficient, and cost-effective. First, get in touch and let us know what items and waste types you need removed, how much, where from, and when. We’ll provide a free no obligation quote based on your needs and can book it at a time that suits you.

Then our man with a van in York will come out at the agreed time and date. Depending on the amount of waste being removed it may be two people, to make lifting and loading your waste into the van quick and easy. They’ll fill the van and then transport it to a local recycling centre in York. 

The waste is then separated by type, sorted, and assessed. Anything still in a usable condition, such as old furniture and appliances, may be reused. Otherwise, most of the waste will be recycled alongside similar materials (such as paper, plastics, and metals), used to create energy via anaerobic digestion, incineration, or composting.

Fantastic communication and service
Mr Paul R

I have very specific needs for my waste collection and other companies provided a very poor service despite promising otherwise. Divert have been fantastic from start to finish, have listened to my requirements, checked that they understood and delivered as promised. Communication has been first class, very friendly and professional, in particular Patrick (Paddy), Elina and Marcus to whom I am very grateful. Thank you all and I will be back. Cheers

  • Why should I consider an alternative to skip hire in York?

    Using a skip involves more effort on your part, and environmentally, than a man-and-van rubbish removal service. Using a skip in York inevitably requires two trips – one to deliver, and one to collect. That uses more fuel, which adds to pollution and the costs of waste removal in York.

    You’ll also need to find a space for the skip and apply for a licence if it’s placed on the street outside your home, for example. All of this can be avoided by using Divert, where we take the rubbish removal right out of your hands – in both a literal and a metaphorical sense.

  • How much does man with a van rubbish removal in York cost?

    Our fixed prices are based on the amount of waste you produce. The following options are available:

    • Small load – from £59.99
    • Medium load – from £149.99
    • Large load – from £219.99
    • Extra-large load – from £299.99

    We can also factor in the cost of any additional items into the price, such as large electronic goods. Whichever service you choose, one hour of labour is included, meaning you don’t need to tackle any heavy lifting yourself.
