When you’re in the middle of a big cleaning or organizing project, the last thing you want to worry about is waste management. Still, a lack of planning for disposal can completely derail even the most efficient project, casting doubt on your ability to meet deadlines and stay on schedule. Piles of debris and unwanted items are more than just an impediment to productivity; they can also be a serious safety hazard.
When you’re dealing with a mile-long to-do list, you need to be sure your castoff items are as good as gone. Junk removal doesn’t have to be complicated or time-consuming. The trick is learning how to choose the option best suited to the unique demands of your individual project.
What Are My Broward County Junk Removal Options?
In order to choose the best option for waste management, you must first have a basic understanding of all your choices.
When a need for waste management arises, most people think of municipal services. After all, they handle your household waste on a weekly basis with ease. But bulk disposal is a bit different from weekly household pickup. The first and perhaps most pressing thing to consider is timing. Broward County Solid Waste and Recycling Services does offer bulk collection, but only once per month and on their schedule. If your project is a time-sensitive one, this may immediately exclude municipal hauling as an option.
Clearing out the estate of a loved one or working to purge items you don’t want to take with you before a big move usually means you’re dealing with a firm date to vacate the property. You can’t wait around for the county’s schedule to align with your own; you have to work quickly. If you’re fortunate enough to find that both schedules do match up, you’re still not out of the proverbial woods. Between restrictions on what items can be collected and ethical quandaries about where they’ll end up when it’s all said and done, municipal waste management can be fraught with concerns.
If you’re in need of waste removal as part of a home renovation project, municipal hauling won’t suit your needs at all. Broward County Solid Waste and Recycling Services regulations prevent collection technicians from removing any construction and demolition waste at all, including bricks, concrete and drywall. You’re also not allowed to place any debris or waste generated by commercial activity of any kind, including brush or lawn waste stemming from professional lawn care services. Items deemed unacceptable for collection will not be moved to allow collection techs access to acceptable ones. So, you may also find yourself with waste that could technically have been collected left at the curb at the end of the day.
Once you’ve navigated the ins and outs of what’s allowed for bulk collection, you may find yourself thinking your waste is as good as gone. Junk removal isn’t as easy as sticking to the rules and hoping for the best. You still have to think about where your items will end up when it’s all said and done. In Broward County, many of the items you put out on the curb for collection will make their way to the local landfill.
Towering 225 feet and plagued by constant complaints of foul odors by neighboring communities, Monarch Hill Renewable Energy Park is better known to locals as “Mount Trashmore.” This behemoth of waste is home to plenty of items that could have been disposed of more sustainably, and the landfill is quickly running out of space. Doing your part to divert waste from the landfill is the responsible and ethical thing to do, but how can you make it work when you’re also facing a looming deadline?
This is where working with a private hauler focused on sustainability and greener practices can be a real game-changer. You’re able to take an enormous load off your plate while also ensuring your conscience is clear, all by choosing an eco-friendly junk hauling service.
