Are you facing a mountain of debris, unwanted or unused items with no clear plan for their disposal? Whether you’re clearing an estate, taking back cluttered space in your home, or cleaning out a commercial property, large projects can be overwhelming. When it’s difficult to figure out where you should even start, making a plan for the responsible disposal of these items can be daunting. This is where professional haul away services can actually pay for themselves.
Responsible Clean Up with Haul Away Services
Your first priority is a clean space, but you also know how important it is to be environmentally responsible with your disposal choices. This means keeping usable items, along with hazardous or restricted materials, out of landfills. State, local and federal laws regarding landfill use will also dictate how and where you dispose of certain items.
For instance, old air conditioners and other appliances containing a phased-out refrigerant chemical cannot be taken to the landfill as-is, and they also can’t be sold. These must be taken to an appropriate recycling facility equipped to remove hazardous waste before processing the rest of the unit.
In most medium- or large-scale clear out projects, a substantial percentage of the material to be removed is still in serviceable condition. Donation is a viable option for these items, as it keeps them out of landfills while also getting them in the hands of people who need them.
Understanding the True Costs of DIY Hauling
In the best-case scenario, you’ll have a minimum of three separate destinations: a donation center, a recycling center and a landfill. This is, of course, assuming all of your donation items are bound for a single destination and you only require the services of a single recycling center. It’s far more likely, though, that you’ll need to take items to several different recycling facilities just to meet their requirements.
For you, this translates to high costs in a number of ways. First, you must place a value on your time and labor. Working on your own, you’ll need to make dozens of trips to a variety of locations over the course of several days. This assumes you have easy access to a truck.
There are charges associated with landfill use and at some legally-mandated recycling centers, as well as fuel costs and the potential for damage to you or your vehicle. In the end, working with an efficient and knowledgeable professional becomes much cheaper, much easier and much less stressful.
