Bulk Junk Removal in a Hurry in Palm Beach County

April 17, 2020.

If you’re practicing social distancing and staying home, you’re likely forced to confront a number of things around the house you’ve been putting off for another day. The hustle and bustle of normal life makes it difficult to tackle home organization and cleaning projects, but these are not normal times. Finding yourself with more time on your hands than you expected a few months ago means it’s not only easier to get around to those projects, it’s also more important.

Sheltering in place is difficult under the best of circumstances, but it becomes more complicated when you’re essentially trapped in a cluttered, disorganized space. How do you get rid of all the things you’re ready to purge? Bulk junk removal rules changed substantially near the end of 2019 for residents of Palm Beach County, making it a bit less simple to get rid of large items or high-volume waste.

These changes don’t mean you’re without hauling options, though. They just force residents to take a closer look at all their choices in order to find one best suited to their needs. If you’re taking advantage of this societal pause to clear out the house, familiarizing yourself with bulk disposal options now can make the entire project easier, less stressful and far more efficient.

Choosing the Right Palm Beach County Bulk Junk Removal Option

In order to be sure you’re making the right choice for your project, it’s necessary to have at least a basic understanding of all the options available. For Palm Beach County residents, there are essentially three: municipal bulk disposal through the Solid Waste Authority of Palm Beach County, DIY hauling and working with a private hauler.

The Solid Waste Authority provides household waste pickup twice per week, but bulk collection only happens once each week. You’re also limited to no more than three large items per pickup day, and must call ahead for a price estimate from SWA if you’re in need of disposal for more than three items. These extra fees can quickly add up, turning what’s supposed to be a quick, inexpensive and easy process into a time-consuming and costly one.

It’s also imperative to adhere to all SWA bulk collection guidelines, or your waste will not be collected. For those who are on a tight schedule, this can be devastating to productivity and reaching project milestones. Timing and money are important, but they’re also not the only concerns. If you’re determined to minimize your environmental impact, public pickup isn’t likely to meet your standards. While items required by state, local or federal law are recycled, much of what’s placed out for bulk collection heads straight for the nearest landfill. This is even the case for household items and furniture that are still in usable condition.

When you’re getting rid of furniture you no longer want or need, you want to keep it in the community and out of the landfill. SWA has no infrastructure in place to facilitate the delivery of usable items to local donation centers. This means your community suffers twice: once when items which could help the less fortunate are removed from circulation, and again when they’re dumped unceremoniously into an unsustainable landfill.

Do-it-yourself hauling allows you to control where your castoff goods end up, but it’s not exactly an option in the age of COVID-19. It’s hard to shelter in place when you’re hauling trash all over the county, and even a moderate project is likely to yield enough waste to necessitate multiple trips to more than one drop-off location. You’ll also be on the hook for all the heavy lifting, just like you’ll have to get all your items down to the curb to work with SWA.

This leaves you with one efficient, ethical and low-stress option: working with private haulers who share your commitment to community support.
