How Junk Removal Services Work

When it’s time for a move, remodel, or a major cleanout, hiring a junk removal service will make the job a lot easier. You can hire this type of service to haul away big items that can’t just be left out on the curb for your regularly scheduled garbage pick-up service to take away.

Types of Junk Removal

There are two types of junk removal:

Dumpster Rental

The junk removal service will deliver a dumpster to your address and allow you to fill it up over the course of a specified period – usually a week. Sometimes, you will need it for a longer period, like when you’re in the midst of a renovation. This can be arranged for an additional fee. When you’re done with the dumpster, the junk removal company will pick it up and remove it.

This service means that you will be doing most of the labor yourself but the advantage is that you can do it at your own pace. Some companies have restrictions as to what you can place in their dumpsters, so check with the supplier before placing materials like bricks or concrete in it.

Junk Hauling

Junk hauling is a service we offer our clients. We sort and value your discarded goods. The junk hauling industry in the USA is well-monitored and has uniform standards, clean trucks, licensing, insurance, and trained crews.

How does junk removal work? On the designated day, the junk hauling crew will arrive with their truck. They will go through your house and remove any items you want to get rid of. Often, our clients use this service to remove non-hazardous items such as furniture, mattresses, appliances, construction waste, and garden refuse. Costs are based on the amount and type of junk, your premises’ location and accessibility. The quote will be inclusive of labor and disposal fees. You can rest assured that the junk will be sorted and recycled according to the strictest environmental protocol.

What Junk Removal Companies Can Haul

We can move large furniture items like mattresses, scrap metals, appliances, bicycles, hot tubs, general garbage, carpets, electronic waste, glass, exercise equipment – even construction debris, pool tables or pianos!

What Junk Removal Services Won’t Accept

We do not haul away hazardous materials. Certain items have their own disposal systems and cannot be mixed with the other items that we haul. Liquids like paint, flammables, bleach and other household cleaners are not accepted. Herbicides, fertilizers and chemicals used for motor care cannot be hauled either. Fluorescent bulbs, thermometers, thermostats, appliances that use freon coolant, radioactive waste, explosives, ammunition, medical waste, asbestos are among other things that cannot be hauled by junk removers.

How Much Does Junk Removal Cost?

Each job is unique and therefore individually priced. The junk removal cost is affected by factors such as the load size (which can be determined by answering a few questions), distance, and special requests that will complicate the job. We would love to discuss your professional junk removal needs and budget.

Is Junk Removal Environmentally Friendly?

Specific landfills that are used for different purposes.  There are two primary types of landfills:  

  1. Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) Landfills: These landfills are designed to accept household and commercial solid waste, including food waste, paper, plastics, and other materials.
  2. Industrial Landfills: These landfills are designed to accept non-hazardous industrial waste, such as construction and demolition debris, manufacturing waste, and other types of non-hazardous industrial waste.
