Junk Removal, Brooklyn and Beyond

April 5, 2018.

Some aspects of life in a densely populated city are easy to navigate, like household waste management. You toss bags into the appropriate bins and never have a second thought about their destination. What do you do when you’ve got more than you can feasibly tip into the curbside bin?

While the sheer number of options can seem intimidating, the truth is that there are only a handful of options when it comes to large-scale junk removal. Brooklyn residents can secure private removal, attempt to work within the framework already set forth by municipal pickup programs, or work on do-it-yourself hauling plans.

Weighing Your Options for Junk Removal, Brooklyn Style

Choosing the right waste management solution for your cleaning, purging, organizing or estate clearing project can mean the difference between efficient success and a disorganized nightmare. As you start to separate the things you’d like to get rid of into piles for donation, recycling and disposal, they can quickly take over the space you’re trying to clean.

Looking for a more self-sufficient form of junk removal? Brooklyn residents don’t typically own large trucks, so your first expenses will be vehicle rental and insurance costs. Then you’ll need to factor in fueling and toll costs for multiple trips to several separate locations. Recycling centers are notoriously picky when it comes to what types of items a particular location will accept, so you may need to visit a number of them just to handle recycling.

It’s a shame to throw out serviceable items, so you’ll want to make sure anything with useful life left is being donated to a good cause. Since charity centers rarely offer pickup, you’ll have to take charge of transportation for this part of the job, too.

Securing a truck and hauling heavy items across the city simply isn’t feasible for most people, though. There are municipal programs you can take advantage of for bulk trash, mattress removal and a few other specialty disposal situations, but you’ll likely need to make an appointment. There are rules and regulations in place for things like mattresses and refrigerators, so be prepared to take a crash course in DSNY regulations and disposal laws.

These programs will take your items away, but you’re responsible for making sure they’re placed at the curb no earlier than 4pm the day before scheduled collection. They can’t be blocking the flow of pedestrian traffic, protruding into the street or intruding on neighboring properties, either. If you’re not physically capable of moving your items to the collection point, you’re likely to face a struggle.
