You know what to do with everyday household waste, but where do you turn when you’re dealing with something you can’t fit into a weekly collection bin? Bulk waste can feel like a big problem, especially when municipal waste management programs come with too many limitations or conditions. Where do you turn when you need large item trash pick up in a reasonable amount of time?
Where to Find Large Item Trash Pick Up
Before you can make an informed decision on how to best proceed, you must first be apprised of all your options.
First, you can attempt DIY hauling. This may be feasible if you already own or have free access to a suitable vehicle and only need to remove one or two large items. You’ll have to do all the heavy lifting, too, so you’ll probably need a willing friend and a strong back. It’s also important you know where to go, as most facilities are highly specialized and very limited in what they will accept.
If there are existing bulk programs offered by your municipal waste management department, these can also be a feasible option. Be aware, however, that you’ll almost certainly need to make a special appointment, which may need to be booked days or weeks in advance, which can play havoc with any deadlines you might be facing. These programs may also be limited in what they’ll accept, and you’ll need to be physically capable of moving the items in question down to the curb.
The other option is to work with professional, private waste management. By the time you factor in the cost of DIY hauling, the time investment of working with municipal programs and all the incidental expenses associated with both, you may be surprised by how cost-effective it can be to work with the right private pick up company.
The Ethical Implications of Bulk Disposal
It’s important to note that, in most cases, municipal pick up programs will recycle exactly as much as is required by local, state or federal law. This means some items that may be capable of being recycled will end up in landfills, even if they’re still in usable condition.
