When Would I Hire a Waste Removal Company?

Make home improvement cleanup easy.

In any home improvement project, the emphasis should be on the improvement, not managing the pile of junk littering your property.

Use these helpful tips to find the right removal service and make cleanup easy.

Build Junk Removal Into Any Major Home Improvement Project

It's easy to overlook cleanup as a part of a project. In any case in which trash can't be picked up by your regular curbside service, you should plan for junk and debris removal as a necessary expense.

If you choose to handle at least part of the cleanup yourself, make sure you have access to a dump or recycling facility that can accept the materials you're carrying. Also, make sure they accept non-commercial vehicles.

Truck Pickup vs. Long-term Bin Rental

For major projects, it may make sense to rent a dumpster or bin so you can dispose of debris in one location. However, you may want to consider a junk and debris pickup service, which will send a truck to collect refuse, clean up your entire area, and handle dumping and recycling.

If you don't want a dumpster in your yard, this kind of service may be a good option for you.

Make Sure the Company is Licensed, Bonded and Insured

Whether you're using a standard dumpster or truck pickup, check to make sure that any damages or liability will be covered by the junk removal service you select. If not, you could be held liable in the event that something goes wrong or someone is hurt.
