Everything You Need To Know About The Cost Of Rubbish Removal In Sydney
For many people, bulk rubbish removals take time and energy, whether you are moving homes or business locations, undergoing renovation, or even handling a deceased estate.
It is only natural to assume that organising for that rubbish to be taken away will come with a cost just as big. But that's not necessarily the case!
This article explores some industry tips and tricks you need to know to make the most of your rubbish removal service. From your budgeting to the types of waste that can be taken away to choosing which company best suits your job, read on to find out more.
Overview of Rubbish Removal Costs in Sydney
It's no secret that Sydney is not exactly the cheapest place to live in Australia, but that doesn't mean that everything in one of our nation's greatest cities should be expensive. Rubbish removal is an invaluable service, not just for domestic collections but also for commercial waste removal, simplifying what is often the most labour-intensive part of having a bulk cleanout: removing the trash from the site.
Rubbish removal is a convenience that can easily pay for itself, saving you time and energy to get back to managing your property, running your business, or simply returning to normal life with a cleaner space to enjoy. The costs of removals depend on many factors, not just the size but also the types of waste that will be collected.

Factors Affecting Rubbish Removal Costs in Sydney
Most household waste removals include standard items like furniture, old appliances, timber and plastic, and maybe even some green waste from the backyard. While rubbish removal services can cover everything from old mattresses to construction debris, from e-waste (old computers) to household chemicals and more, these common items are usually quite reasonably priced to remove.
However, it is important to be clear when booking a service if you have anything that is exceptionally large or potentially dangerous to get rid of. Chemicals and paints, for example, have to go through an extra recycling process to ensure their safe disposal (to the recycling workers and the wider environment), and so removing these can add a small fee to your initial removal.
The cost of rubbish removal can also be affected by the size of the job, as larger trucks and a bigger removal team will obviously incur larger costs. A larger vehicle and more staff, however, means a safe and efficient job well done, as well as the expertise to handle the different types of rubbish that can build up over time.
Different Types of Rubbish Removal Services in Sydney
As previously mentioned, costs can be affected by the type of rubbish that needs to be removed. Most removal companies will take away regular household waste, including green waste (even mounds of soil), furniture (timber, plastic, and metal), white goods (even large and heavy fridges and washers), and a wide variety of other items.
However, if you have potentially hazardous materials to dispose of, please inform your chosen company while you are making your booking. This ensures you don't receive any surprise fees and that the removal team arrives with the right gear to handle chemicals, liquids, and other hazards safely.
Average Costs of Rubbish Removal in Sydney
Rubbish removal costs in Sydney generally range from $200 to $600, but this depends on the job size as well as the nature of the materials to be disposed of. It is important to agree on a quoted price before the company arrives on the day so that both parties are on the same page regarding pricing for the volume of rubbish.
In Sydney, the average cost of rubbish removal for a:
- 3-bedroom house can be $500–$800;
- 4-bedroom house can be $800–$1200;
- 5-bedroom house can be $1200–$1500;
- 6-bedroom house can be $1500–$1800;
- 7-bedroom house can be $1800–$2200.
This might sound like a lot, but there are some ways you can mitigate your removal fees and ensure your quotes are value for money.
Tips for Reducing Rubbish Removal Costs in Sydney
Most rubbish removal companies in Sydney will offer discounts for regular customers or larger jobs. If you own investment properties, for example, you can hire the same company to attend all investment property cleanouts, saving you money in the long run.
For construction sites (or demolition sites), a bulk cleanout may mean removing tonnes of bricks, broken concrete, roof tiles and timber, or even old carpets. Hiring the removal experts to take care of all that construction debris for you, means you can move onto the next stage or building that much sooner.
You may even combine being a regular customer with larger jobs. Businesses and construction companies with regular, scheduled bulk cleanouts may also enlist a rubbish removal company to attend all their removals. The benefits of building a relationship with an experienced and reputable rubbish removal company cannot be overstated.
Benefits of Professional Rubbish Removal in Sydney
Apart from saving you time, energy and the need to transport a mountain of junk yourself, the benefits of rubbish removal arise from the experience and responsibility of the experts at hand. Professional removalists have the knowledge and equipment to handle any job safely and efficiently and provide services you may not immediately think of.

Alternatives to Professional Rubbish Removal in Sydney
There are two primary alternatives to professional rubbish removal: hiring a skip bin or buying or hiring a trailer to take your rubbish to the tip yourself. These come with their own limitations. Hiring a skip bin may require a council permit in certain jurisdictions, and the storage of a skip can take up plenty of space, blocking half your driveway or leaving a large patch of dead grass when it comes time to collect it.
The costs are also a little different to hiring rubbish removal experts. While you're not paying the labour costs by doing it yourself, it comes at the cost of performing that labour yourself. The average cost for hiring skip bins is about $570, with larger bins suitable for bulk cleanouts costing even more to rent. Hiring a large trailer in Sydney can cost upwards of $80 for just 3 hours. With our removals at All Gone Rubbish Removals starting at a mere $69, the cost and convenience of hiring the experts seems like the obvious choice.
