Customer Testimony

"I recently hosted a large party that left me and my partner with a colossal clean-up job of various bits and bobs that included general and recycling waste. At first glance we had no idea what junk would require recycling and what didn't. Until we came into contact with Rubbish Clearance Kent, they were superb at removing all our waste efficiently while being courteous throughout the job. At a price of £275, they saved a whole lot of time and stress!! To the RC team , thank you 👍👍"
