How it Works
Picture the scene, you're doing some vital DIY on the house, or maybe you're having a garden clear out. Naturally there's going to be way too much rubbish to put in your
wheelie bin, and to run it all up the tip yourself would take atleast five return trips, maybe two hours of your time and to top it all off, you've then got to hoover your
car out. Lots of hassle right? Well fortunately Brigole is here to connect you to people willing to do those tip-trips for you!
Additionally, in our own experience, it can be a nightmare hiring a skip, especially when you have to worry about skip permits from the council that not only take seven days
to go through, but also cost upwards of £40 on top of the £260 you've paid for the skip itself!
So the Brigole system works like this. We help cut out all unnecessary aspects of rubbish removal. There are no skip companies with employees and high fuel bills, there are no
credit card charges, no permit fees. You create one of two types of account: a client account or an operative account.
A client is somebody with rubbish that they're looking to dispose of. After registering for a client account, you will then be able
to post a job consisting of five pieces of information: title, type, image, price and description.
Title: The title should be clear and concise, a good example of this would something along the lines of: "Nine rubble sacks of building and house waste in Stevenage".
Type: Is it waste from a domestic location (i.e. a house or garden), or a commercial one (for example a building site).
Image: Take a clear photo of your rubbish so the operative has a good idea of how much is to be removed. The filesize limit for image uploads is 3MB.
Price: This is the amount you're willing to pay to have your rubbish disposed of. Payments are made directly to the operative.
Description: You will want to write as much as you can about your rubbish so that the operative knows exactly what they are to dispose of. A better description is
much more likely to attract operatives to your job.
Once you've posted your job, you'll be able to see it on your profile. Operatives will contact you on the job page itself in the comments section,
you will then be able to click the 'Accept [operative]' button, which then assigns your job to your chosen operative. Once a job is accepted by you, it then becomes private, so you are able to
discuss further details about your job such as specific location, times and dates.
Finally, once the operative has been to collect your rubbish and has completed the rubbish dispoal and you've paid them, you are able to mark the job as 'Completed'.
As an operative, you'll be looking to dispose of people's rubbish for them in a safe and legal way. The best way to do this is to use your own personal vehicle and dispose
of the rubbish at the local tip (or recycling centre). Be aware of your local site's rules and regulations regarding vehicle types. Commercial vehicles, large cars and vans
are often limited to the amount of rubbish they can dispose of per year.
Once you've registered for an operative account, you'll be looking at jobs posted by clients in and around your area.
If you see a job you're interested in doing, click it and leave a comment at the bottom of the page, it is then up to the client that posted the job to choose an operative from those who have
commented on it. If you are successful, the job will become 'Accepted' and assigned to you and become visible on your profile. After the job
has been accepted by the client and assigned to you, the job then becomes private, allowing you to discuss further details with the client such as specific location, times and dates.
Now that the job is assigned to you, it is highly important that you have understood the Brigole terms & conditions which are agreed to
during account creation. Now you're ready to go and collect the rubbish and dispose of it safely and legally! Arrange payment with your client upon job completion, the client will then mark the job
as 'Completed' and the completed job will be added to your account.
