Whether you’re clearing out an estate or are determined to reclaim some space during spring cleaning, it can be a challenge to figure out an ethical, efficient and cost-effective system for bulk garbage removal. Bronx residents may seem to have a plethora of removal options, but they can basically be separated into three categories: hauling it away yourself, working within the existing framework of free services, or private hauling.
The key to choosing the right option for you is to carefully weigh the unique needs of your project against the pros and cons of each choice.
Breaking Down Your Bulk Garbage Options
If nothing else, DIY hauling can at least feel like the most cost-effective option. The truth is, though, there are a lot of hidden costs which can quickly add up to make this one of the more expensive avenues for junk removal.
Unless you’re one of the rare Bronx residents who owns or has free access to a large vehicle, you’ll need to spring for rental and insurance costs right off the bat. Then there are fueling and toll costs, along with processing fees at recycling centers and dumping sites. It’s also a good idea to factor in the cost of your time and physical labor. How much will an injury cost in terms of missed work? It’s always a possibility, especially when you’re trying to navigate stairwells and narrow spaces with ungainly objects.
DSNY does offer special item pickup, though the rules and guidelines vary depending on what kind of objects you’re trying to dispose of through this system. Mattresses require special bagging and often also require an appointment, as do many appliances. You’ll still be responsible for maneuvering huge items down to the curb after 4pm the evening before scheduled pickup, where they must not block pedestrian traffic, impinge on neighboring properties or protrude into the street. Failure to comply with some guidelines can leave you facing fines, penalties and citations.
