You have a lot to get rid of and a narrow window of opportunity. What do you do? You can’t rely on weekly household trash pickup for big jobs, so you’ll need to make other arrangements. It may seem as if you’ve got a wide variety of options, but those options narrow quickly when you factor in time constraints. The truth of the matter is that not all disposal options are created equal in terms of time requirements, environmental responsibility and cost-effectiveness.
Breaking Down Large Trash Pickup Options
When it comes to getting rid of big items, you really only have a few options. First is to haul them away yourself, which requires a vehicle of sufficient size and likely some assistance with the heavy lifting. You’ll need to carefully research where each item should be dropped off because most recycling centers are limited to only specific item types and some things cannot legally be taken to a landfill.
Donation is a more ethical choice on many levels, from reducing environmental impact to providing assistance for a good cause, but it’s rare for donation centers to offer pickup services and they’ll usually only accept good-quality furniture or household goods. This means you can only get rid of certain items this way, and you’ll still be responsible for all the lifting and hauling.
Your municipal waste management service may offer special large trash pickup by appointment or on certain days, but you’ll need to make sure you’re well-versed in all the guidelines and rules before scheduling. If you’re on a tight timeline, the long waits you should anticipate with municipal service appointments can throw off your entire plan.
The Benefits of Professional Hauling Services
At first blush, working with a private large trash pickup service provider may seem like the least cost-effective and efficient option. However, when you factor in the time and labor investment of DIY hauling or working with municipal service providers and potentially missing deadlines, it can often pay for itself. Choose the right company and it can also be your most ethical and environmentally-responsible option.
