Household CLEANUPS and Yard Clearance

Make more space in your home and garage by getting rid of excess "stuff".

We know that household cleanups can leave an awful lot of rubbish lying around and that means your garden becomes clogged with odds and ends, cut-offs and all kinds of ugly rubbish. On top of that - all children just love to play with anything lying around - and this can be dangerous. Planks with nails, paint pots, filler gun canisters, spiky pieces of metal - these are all garden hazards for young children.

Call us - we can clear your yard expertly, allowing you and your children to get back outside and enjoy your garden.

Kind Regards

I have known John for approximately 3 years and has always been very reliable. John has always been on time on the days he has booked - to quote or collect rubbish from our premises.

John is conscientious regarding the separation of waste into recyclable materials and general rubbish. I have always found him to be honest and reasonable with his pricing and he always leaves the premises clean and tidy, sweeping up after he has finished.
I would definitely recommend John for any work and welcome any recommendation of this reference.

To whom it may concern

I had finished cleaning my father's house out and I had a lot of junk. I rang John on a wet Sunday at short notice. He was there within an hour. He explained clearly what could be recycled and how many loads there would be. The cost of a mattress and base was extra. All his prices included GST. We agreed on the price and he started right away. He told me the cost after each load - and all loads were what he had estimated beforehand. At last I had my driveway cleared! John came back the next day and finished the job and swept the driveway and garage. Great Service. I would have no hesitation recommending John to anyone that neads rubbish removed quickly and efficiently.


Working for Century 21 Cordeau Marshall

Working for Century 21 Cordeau Marshall for nearly 4 years now, I have encountered numerous contractors. Meeting John from "I WANT YOUR RUBBISH" just over a year ago, I can faithfully say that I have never met some one with such an honest, fair and accommodating manner.

Johns quality of service is by far the best I have encountered and certainly competitive in comparison. His service is backed by numerous happy vendors, I have referred to him. His energetic approach to work ensures a speedy turn around time and his enthusiasm makes him a delight to deal with.

It is always a pleasure making that call to John. Regardless of weather, the day is always shining when you call.

Nick Gurinovich - Century 21

Dear John, Thanks so much for a job well done! Your immediate assiitance and willingness to continue until all the rubbish was removed was very much appreciated. Thanks for the attitude that nothing was too hard to accomplish.

Your honesty and promptness was appreciated.

My company Century 21 Cordeau Marshall engaged the services of "I Want Your Rubbish" about one year ago, since that time John is the only rubbish man we contact, his prompt service and unbelievably positive attitude makes him the only person to think of when a job is required. John is fair with his quotes always competitive and accommodating, even when I have given him very short notice due to a particular situation he has gone out of his way to deliver the same energetic enthusiasm as always. Give John a call he will bring a smile to your face just listening to him answering his phone. Yours sincerely,

John has been our preferred contractor for over 15 years. He has done everything from asbestos removal to general rubbish and green waste. We have regularly recommended him to our friends, who have all commended his services. On our recommendation, he has also done rubbish removals for a number of the local schools and churches.

In my capacity as Property and Maintenance Officer with the Catholic Church, I have used John to do work at a number of our church and business locations, including the Bishop's personal residence. John provides a good value for money service. I have always found him to be co operative, honest and fair in his dealings. I know I can leave the job to him and it will be done on time and left clean afterwards.

My wife and I have no hesitation in providing him with the highest personal recommendation for anyone seeking a competitive, value added service.

Thanks again

We had a truckload of rubbish, building material, old windows, hot water tank, tiles and so forth which had been left under our house by previous owners. I had to get rid of it all. I thought this is going to be a nightmare!

I looked up the North Shore Times under classified Advertisements and saw this small neat advertisement picturing a truck and with the heading 'I want your rubbish'. Why don't I give this man a try.

I phoned John on 0411 727 285 and was delighted with the response. He asked some questions about the load and accessibility to the underneath part of the house. He offered to come, inspect the job, give a quote and begin work immediately. I was so relieved.

John arrived at the agreed time, it was just before Christmas 2006, and parked outside our house. I was pleased to see that he came with a whole range of tools, chainsaw, crowbars, wire cutters, wheelbarrow, and many other instruments. I asked him, why all the tools?....

...He said that you had to be prepared for every eventuality. John worked away methodically and carefully. When I returned about two hours later, the rubbish had been carefully packed in his truck and covered. I was amazed just how much rubbish had been under the house. The truck was full. He was just raking the ground where most of the rubbish had been.

I was delighted. I had dreaded getting rid of the rubbish. John had done a great job. Everything had been collected. The Underneath of the house had been left tidy and clean. John's friendly and obliging manner made the whole job a delight. A very fine person.

I am delighted to recommend him to other people who are facing similar problems. You will not be sorry. He is excellent.

By the way we successfully sold our house. Downstairs looked great; everyone was impressed how tidy the house was.

I made a mistake - I got a big skip, hired a couple of students and found it took forever to clean out my gear.

Then I found 'I Want Your Rubbish" . John not only removed all my rubbish - he cleaned up perfectly, he advised me on my recyclables and he made it all very easy and efficient. All for the same price as a skip!

Hire John - it's so much easier and he's a nice bloke.
