Dumpster Rental or Junk Removal?

how to get rid of all this waste

Do you have a big construction project underway?

Are you managing a heavy duty clean up?

Maybe you are remodeling your kitchen, clearing out your great grand daddy’s attic, or finally pulling up all of those bushes that your wife’s been nagging you about for years.

Whatever your job is–if you are breaking stuff down, pulling it up, or hauling it out–you need some way to get rid of all of that waste. You can’t just shove it into 100 trash bags and expect your garbage service to take care of it.

This article is going to cover two of the basic methods you’ve got to choose from when it comes time to clean up a really big job: renting a dumpster or hiring junk removal.

When Should I Rent a Dumpster?

If you aren’t familiar with the concept, dumpster rental is when you pay a company, such as JD Recyclers (offering dumpster rental in Denver), to drop off a really huge steel container, from 6 to 40 cubic yards, straight to your home or construction site. You load it up with all of your waste (according to their regulations), and call up your provider once you are done (or once the bin is filled and you need room for more). They’ll haul it away and deliver a new one if you still have more waste.

Dumpster Rental can be a short term process, renting a bin for as little as a week. Or, if you are in it for the long haul, you can rent a dumpster for months on end. Dumpster rental is probably for you if you are going to be working on a clean up project over several days or longer. For example, if you are remodeling your bathroom, but only have time to work on it during the weekend, you’ll likely rent out a dumpster for a month or so to ensure that you’ve always got somewhere to throw your waste.

When Is Junk Removal Right for Me?

Hiring a junk removal service, such as 1-800-GOT-JUNK is a good way to get rid of your waste quickly and immediately, and without lifting a finger! It works pretty simply: call them, point at the stuff you want trashed, they load it up and haul it away.

Junk Removal services are great for one day jobs, or projects in which you won’t constantly be making new waste over an extended period of time. For example, if you pull up all of the carpet in your house in one weekend, you could dial the junk removers that same day and have everything cleaned up on the spot.

So, that’s the long and short of it. If you skimmed all the way to the bottom, then here’s the tl;dr version:

If your job is just one or two days, call junk removers.

If it’s going to take a while, rent a dumpster.
