With the old year gone and a new president and year ahead of us, now is the time to organize your home and get rid of the junk cluttering your valuable space. It’s very satisfying and rewarding to clear away the debris which may be lingering in your attic, yard, basement, garage, etc. There are several ways to go about removing your junk. 1) Rent a dumpster 2) Hire a local waste removal company to haul off your junk.
Renting a dumpster for a week usually cost about $250 – $400 for a 30 or 40 yard container. The dumpster company will drop off the huge container on your yard or driveway. This may seem great except you have an unsightly container for all to see for the week as well as take the chance of cracking and ruining your expensive concrete driveway. Moreover, you have to provide your time and hard labor to carry and lug all your junk yourself to fill the dumpster. Also, you have to pay the full price for the size dumpster you purchase, regardless if you fill the dumpster entirely or not.
The better choice for junk removal and hauling is to hire an eco-friendly junk removal company to do all the work. They will provide you an over the phone estimate of your job prior to arriving. When they show up with their box truck, you simply show them the trash you want thrown away and their crew will load your rubbish in their truck and haul it away. Most junk removal companies charge by the volume and weight and the truck space it takes for your junk. A full 14 foot box truck can fit on average about a one car garage full of junk.
Another advantage of hiring a reputable waste removal company is that they recycle what they can, i.e., old furniture, appliances, scrap metals, construction debris, paper, plastics, etc. They also know which recycling centers accept items for recycling and which ones do not, i.e., paint tires, batteries, hazardous material, etc. Most junk companies will haul away most anything, however, because they are charged extra for some disposals, may charge slightly extra for disposal of hazard type materials.
The best part of hiring a junk removal company versus a dumpster rental is that you spend about the same yet your junk and clutter will be gone the same day-No dumpster sitting on your property for a week and moreover, all the heavy lifting and labor is done by the junk guys. Save your back, your driveway, and your money by hiring a local eco-friendly waste removal company to help you organize and remove the clutter from your home or business. You will be glad you did!
