One of the most popular ways to get rid of a large amount of garden waste is hiring a woodchipper, however, is this easier and cheaper than booking an 0800 dump me service.

In this blog we will discuss whether to remove your garden waste by hiring a woodchipper vs booking an 0800dumpme rubbish removal service.


Wood Chippers – There are several steps to hiring a wood chipper, you must go online and book the chipper, then drive your car, with a tow bar, to collect the woodchipper and tow it back to your house. Then you must load all the green waste into the chipper yourself, then when your lease time runs out, tow the chipper back to the station. Some of the chippers can be hire out for 2-4 hours to a day.

Do it yourself vs 0800dumpme does it for you

Wood Chippers – When hiring these machines, they normally do not come with operators, therefore, you will have to pick up the machine yourself and lift and load all the green waste into the chipper yourself.

Tow Bar

Wood Chippers – To hire a wood chipper, you must have a car with a tow bar on the back of it, so you can tow the chipper back to your property. If you do not have a tow bar, some companies deliver the chipper for an additional cost, but you must pay for delivery and return.

0800 Dump Me – No need to have a tow bar or car, our trucks come to you and remove your garden waste by loading it onto our trucks and taking it away.

Vines in your garden waste

Wood Chippers – Many wood chippers cannot handle vines being put through them. The vines get caught in the chipper and destroy the mechanism causing it to break. Therefore, if you have vines or string like garden waste that you need removed, a woodchipper is not the best option for you.
