End of Tenancy Waste Removal: How to Clear out Student Accommodation Waste

PUBLISHED: 03/05/2023

It’s now coming to the end of the school year for university students across Leeds. As you wave goodbye to your tenants, you will likely face lots of leftover clutter and waste that needs to be cleared out before you rent your accommodation again in September.

In this blog, we’ll touch on the types of rubbish you may need to remove from your student accommodation after the school year ends, and how student accommodation waste collection service can help you going forward.

Types of Waste Removal for Student Accommodation

Like any home, waste can easily pile up. Whether it's bulky mattresses, old furniture, household waste or white goods, there’s always a way it can be cleared out.

Mattress Removal

As a landlord, you will rent your student accommodation to different people every year, meaning the fresh mattresses you once bought are now bumpy, lumpy and weathered. Thankfully, mattresses only need to be replaced every 6 to 8 years but this year, it might be time for you!

Mattresses are big and bulky items that take up a lot of space until it is taken by the council. Rather than waiting weeks on end, we recommend choosing The Waste Team to get it quickly picked up in no time. When you go with us, we will break the mattress down into parts so that each part can go through the correct recycling process. Currently, only 19% of mattresses are appropriately recycled, so we work hard to recycle as much as we can.

Old Furniture Removal

Just like mattresses, your furniture will go through typical wear and tear. Stains, rips, scratches and marks will crop up over time and could seriously damage the appeal of your accommodation to future tenants.

Throwing away old chairs, sofas, tables and cupboards will be an issue for any landlord clearing out their accommodation. This old furniture is too big for a council collection bin and will take up too much space in a hired skip. The Waste Team will remove your bulky furniture in no time and will face stairs and lifts to get everything safely moved out. We have over 20 years of experience in waste management, so let us do the leg work for you! We will effectively clear out your house when the time suits you, helping you to save time and effort.

White Goods Removal

After years of use, white goods such as fridges, freezers and washing machines will face a time when it is no longer in good working condition. When cold and wet appliances become inefficient, they will work harder to operate, meaning more energy is unnecessarily used. Plus, wet and cold appliances are the most energy-consuming appliance when they’re working well, so it’s crucial to change up before even more money is added to your energy bill!

As part of our house clearance service, our expert team will efficiently clear your property from top to bottom and remove any white goods on the way.

Household Waste Removal

When clearing our student accommodation, you may find miscellaneous items that need to be disposed of before new tenants move in. This could be old cutlery, kitchen utensils, food, cosmetics and general rubbish. All of this waste might result in travelling back and forth to the tip so instead, rely on The Waste Team for your domestic waste. We’ll even collect all of your waste on the day so that you can make your accommodation feel homely once again!
