Jumbo Bag Away – Let us do the dirty work

Easy to use and cheaper than a skip, our Jumbo Bag Away Service recycles over 80% of waste and is a popular service used all year round for house renovations and garden re-designs. Saving you time and money, our Jumbo Bag can take up to 1 tonne of waste and be collected when you're not there.

What is a Jumbo Bag?

Our jumbo bags are strong and durable bags that can hold up to 1 tonne of debris. They can be purchased online here or at our Bournemouth, Ferndown or Dorchester stores.

How does our Jumbo Bag Away work?

1. Buy a Jumbo Bag

Once you’ve worked out how much waste you’ve got that you’d like to dispose of, use this to work out how many bags you need. For green waste such as grass clippings or leaves, people usually only need 1 jumbo bag for a domestic area such as their garden. If you have a lot of waste, however, or a variety of different materials that need disposing of, it’s wise to get 2 jumbo bags.

2. Fill your Jumbo Bag

Fill your jumbo bag with your garden waste, to use this, simply fold down the four corners of the Jumbo Bag (this will give it a more sturdy structure). You can then start to fill the bag. It is strongly advised that you do not attempt to move the bag once you have begun filling it as you risk damaging the bag or injuring yourself. It’s a good idea to start filling the bag up in an area that is easily accessible for our lorries, like a front garden or drive way.

3. Choose your Waste Category

Go online and select which waste you need disposing of. There is a list below of the materials we can and can’t dispose of. Say you’re wanting to remove grass clippings and leaves, this would come under the category ‘Green Waste’. Once you’ve done this, you will receive an email to let you know which date your waste will be collected, which should be within 5 working days.

OR if you’re not too sure which category your waste comes under, call us on 01202 874207 where one of our friendly customer advisors can talk it through with you and take payment over the phone, advising a collection date.

Things to Consider

The bag will need to be ready and at a collection point where our drivers will be guaranteed easy access. It must be situated within four metres (13 feet) of a public road. Ensure that there are no potential obstructions nearby, such as overhead wires, parked vehicles, trees etc. The roadway must be a minimum of 3 metres (10 feet) wide to enable the collection lorry to gain access to the bag.

4. Await Collection

And then you sit back, relax, and let us collect the filled bag for you. We have 5 different size lorries which are easily manouverable to pick these bags up and load them onto the back of our lorries.
