Frequently Asked Questions

How much does junk removal cost?

+

Junk removal costs an average of $234, with a typical cost range between $132 and $362. A full truckload can cost from $400 to $800. Removing a single item can cost from $60 to $150, with additional items running from $20 to $40 each.

What are the 6 types of waste?

+

There are many different types of waste, but they tend to fall into a few main categories.

  • Municipal waste: This is what you probably know as garbage. This category includes everything you’d throw into your trash can, including kitchen waste, paper, and plastic.
  • Hazardous waste: This includes things like gasoline and pesticides. Note: If you need any waste in this category removed, you’ll likely need to call in a specialized company and/or consult local ordinances about how to dispose of them.
  • Medical waste: This category includes things like medical tools and waste from hospitals. You typically wouldn’t call a traditional junk removal company for this type of waste, as it will require a more specialized service.
  • Industrial waste: Waste in this category comes specifically from processing plants, factories, and other similar sites. Again, specific companies tend to handle this type of waste.

  • Waste prevention: This is what we know as recycling. If you specifically want a junk removal service to recycle any items they take away, be sure to let them know.
  • Construction and demolition debris: Junk removal companies can often help you with construction debris removal, including hauling away things like wood, dirt, and concrete, which can be helpful during home renovations.

What is junk removal?

+

Junk removal services can get rid of many things that you don’t want around your home anymore. These companies can pick up your lawn waste, perform construction debris removal, and help you remove your old furniture, appliances, and much more. Once they pick them up, they’ll also haul them away for you.

How does junk removal services work?

+

First, you’ll need to determine what you need a junk removal service to haul away. Some companies will specialize in a certain type of debris removal, while others may take a combination of items and help you dispose of them safely and quickly.

Once you schedule a pickup with the junk removal company, they’ll give you instructions on where to leave the items and any prep work you need to do. Then, they’ll show up at your scheduled time and get to work removing any items you need. Finally, they’ll load the items into trucks and dispose of them at the appropriate spot, like a landfill or recycling center.

How to prepare for junk removal

+

How you’ll get ready for a junk removal company to come can depend on what they’re hauling away, but there are a few best practices you should follow no matter what.

First, make sure you have a list of everything you need the junk removal service to take away (you should also share this with them beforehand). Next, clear the area where the team will work, making sure it’s as free of obstructions as possible, any doors are unlocked, etc. If you can safely put all the junk they need to take away in one area, go ahead and do that.

Finally, be sure that you’re available at the time you schedule with the junk removal company and you ask any lingering questions before they arrive.
