Choosing Between Trash Removal Companies

May 5, 2018.

When you’ve got a lot of waste and a small window of opportunity, all trash removal companies look mostly the same. Scratch the surface, though, and you may be surprised by how different some waste management professionals are from their peers.

Whether you’re in the middle of a difficult estate cleanout or are trying to reclaim some space with a big organization project, getting rid of waste and unwanted items is usually near the top of your to-do list. Still, you want to be sure you’re making ethical and responsible choices. This is where it pays to do a little bit of research before making a hiring decision.

Greener Disposal Options

If you know your cleaning and purging will yield a number of useful items still in serviceable condition, then it’s far better to donate these items to charitable organizations in your area than it is to toss them out for landfill collection. This is especially true if you’re dealing with furniture, appliances and other large but still usable items. Why discard them when you can help organizations or people while also freeing up more of your own space?

Unfortunately, few charitable organizations offer donation pickup services. This means you’ll have to assume responsibility for your own transportation, which is a big reason why so many good items end up waiting for sanitation department collection. Unless you have access to a large enough vehicle, you’re stuck with the expense of renting a truck, paying to insure it and then assuming responsibility for fueling and tolls along the way.

Recycling centers are another option, though many will not allow you to drop off items yourself. This means you’ll be forced to either work with the schedule and appointment availability of your local sanitation provider, or to work with professionals who can get your waste recycled in a timely manner.

Can Trash Removal Companies Be Eco-Friendly?

While it’s true that some waste management businesses do the bare minimum when it comes to recycling in order to stay on the right side of the law, this certainly isn’t the case for the entire profession.

Environmentally-focused waste management businesses do exist, and they’re easier to find than you might think. Our Jiffy Junk technicians, for instance, offer full white-glove services to commercial and residential clients alike, throughout all five boroughs, Nassau and Suffolk Counties. We’ll collect all your waste and cast-off items in one fell swoop, donating anything useful and recycling the rest. We only use landfills as an absolute last resort, so you can have a conscience as clear as your space when it’s all said and done.

We’ll leave your space broom-clean and dust-free, too, because our commitment to service excellence is as strong as our commitment to the environment. Don’t let big projects bog you down, and don’t settle for waste management outfits who dump everything into a landfill. Make quick work of your project, then hit the finish line with no stress and no guilt.
