You’re facing a mountain of junk with what feels like very little time to discard it; what should you do? With so many different services and programs, it can seem daunting just to settle on a collection method. When you scratch the surface, you’ll see there are really just a few choices: DIY hauling, free municipal pickup programs, and a private junk disposal company.
Unpacking Your Options: Free Versus a Junk Disposal Company
To decide which solution best fits your situation, it pays to do a bit of critical thinking about each option.
Hauling your own waste can seem, at first blush, like the best and most cost-effective solution. Once you balance the costs of vehicle rental and insurance, fueling costs, tolls and processing fees, you may be surprised by the true expense of doing it yourself. This is, of course, before you even begin to affix a value to your time and labor.
Recycling and disposal laws on the state, local and federal levels also complicate matters. Some things must be recycled, by law. Others can only be discarded at specialty facilities or must be processed before they can be safely dumped. You can face fines and penalties for failure to comply, even if you break the law inadvertently.
Municipal programs offered by city and county waste management departments do exist, though they’ll vary from one area to the next. Most require appointments for bulk pickup, which can be a challenge if you’re working on a deadline. You will also need to familiarize yourself with the guidelines and rules set forth by these programs to ensure timely and efficient disposal.
Hiring a private junk removal company can feel like the height of indulgence, but you may be surprised by the cumulative costs of trying to manage it yourself, versus the one-time cost of a professional waste management outfit.
