Moving out is never fun. It involves cleaning, packing and moving heavy things. All things which if you normally enjoy now have the added stress of having to be done by a certain date and to a standard of cleanliness that may well be different to your own. It also makes you realise just how much stuff you have accumulated throughout the year, a cupboard of pint glasses pinched from your local, a traffic cone or two and all of those fancy dress costumes.
Whether you are moving out mid-June or staying until the end of your tenancy, you still need to make sure all your rubbish has been property and front/back gardens are cleared before you hand your keys back in. So that you can make sure to dispose of your rubbish correctly we have included information
