You’ve purchased a real-estate owned home at a real bargain, but you’re also facing a real mess. Is there a way to clean out your new REO purchase efficiently without a huge environmental impact? Regardless of whether you’re planning to flip the property for a profit or to settle into your bargain forever home, you need to keep costs down during the rehab process, too. It may seem impossible to minimize costs and environmental impact at the same time, but it doesn’t have to be.
REO Cleanout with Minimal Landfill Impact
When you purchase an REO property, it’s likely to be in rough condition. People aren’t typically concerned with leaving a pristine property when they’re going through the foreclosure process, so you’ll almost certainly be wading through debris just to scope out the condition of the property. Add the debris of renovation to the existing trash and you’ve got a huge pile destined for a landfill, right? Not necessarily. It all depends on how you manage disposal.
A surprising amount of the refuse in an REO property, including the construction and demolition rubble, can be disposed of in an environmentally-friendly manner. Most C&D rubbish can be reused or recycled. You’ll just need to take it to the appropriate location. Some items may be suitable for donation, too, particularly if the previous owners left personal effects in their hasty departure.
There may also be some things you’re forced, by law, to handle in an environmentally-friendly manner. Appliances and electronics, especially those containing refrigerants, must be handled at appropriate facilities to stay on the right side of the law. When you subtract the recyclable or reusable items, along with those eligible for donation, you’re likely left with a proportionally small amount of debris destined for the landfill. Now all that’s left is to haul everything to the right place.
How Pro Hauling and Cleanout Services Save Money
On the surface, hiring professional hauling services may seem like an unnecessary expense. Even if you have access to a large truck and plenty of time to manage hauling yourself, you may be surprised by how much you can save by hiring experts.
There’s not a single location where you can drop off all the rubbish in your new purchase to be sorted and managed. You may be looking at multiple locations for C&D debris alone, and that’s before you ever get to the general waste and donation items. You’ll pay a processing fee at each location, and you’ll incur fuel costs along the way. It also pays to remember the value of your time.
