FAQ’s About Junk Removal In Brisbane

Unless your name is Marie Kondo, I think we can all agree that junk is one thing we’re all guilty of accumulating, and this can be due to make reasons; you have trouble letting things go, you have no means to dispose of it or it doesn’t really both you.

Regardless of how you junk accumulated, I’m sure you know that it would be better off gone. But wanting something gone and getting rid of it are two totally separate things. The latter is a big headache for most.

If Google’s search tools are anything to go by, it seems that a lot of people are wanting to get rid of their junk by not sure how to go about it. If that sounds like you, then this article will be of assistance.

If you’re looking for a reliable and affordable company that offers junk removal in Brisbane, then 4 Waste Removals are here for you. With Junk Skip Bins and Hands-On Rubbish Removal services to choose from, you’ll find an affordable solution to meet your junk removal needs.

Continue to read as I answer some of the most asked questions on Google in relations to junk removal in Brisbane.

How do I get rid of rubbish for free?

I’m not surprised that this is one of the most frequently asked questions at all! Like everything, nothing comes for free, unfortunately. If you have household junk that you’re looking to get rid of – and it’s usable – then you can sell it or give it away on websites like Gumtree or Facebook Marketplace. However, if you have actual rubbish to dispose of, then taking it to the tip is your best bet. But bear in mind you will need to be able to transport it to the tip and that fees may apply based on the amount and type of rubbish you want to get rid of.

Additionally, our article on junk removal tips offers several free rubbish removal tips that may also be helpful.

Who can I call to pick up junk?

If you’re not keen on taking your junk to the tip yourself or you have no means to take it there, then there are companies, such as 4 Waste Removals, that offer affordable services for junk removal in Brisbane. At 4 Waste, we offer a Hand-On Rubbish Removal and Junk Skip Bins to remove waste from Brisbane premises.

If your junk is unwanted furniture, clothes, etc. you can also try calling a local Op Shop to see if they will remove it for free.

How much does it cost for junk removal?

The cost of junk removal in Brisbane will vary depending on what solution you choose and the company also. At 4 Waste, our Hand-On Rubbish Removal service starts at $60 and our Junk Skip Bins start at $275 (2m3) for a 7-day hire.

How do you get rid of junk?

There are many ways to get rid of junk in Brisbane, the easiest being to simply throw it in your council wheelie bin. If, however, it is too large and won’t fit, the next cheapest option is to load up the car and go to the tip. But, if it won’t fit in your car either, then you will need to hire a Ute, trailer or a skip bin – both a Ute and trailer will require you having to drive to the tip, while with a skip bin, the skip bin company will dispose of it for you.

Option options on hand include holding a garage sale or giving it away (providing it is desirable).


Junk removal is a nightmare for many Brisbane residents and it is leading them to question; how they can get rid of it for free, how much does a professional service cost, who they can call to pick up their junk, and other ways to get rid of junk.
