Managing Large Garbage Pick Up Projects

February 22, 2018.

When you’re staring down the barrel of a loaded basement, waste disposal is the last thing you want to consider. You’ve got enough work ahead of you with the clearing, sorting and organizing; who needs to worry about where to send the things you no longer want or need?

For cleanout projects of any scale, from full hoarding cleanouts to relatively straightforward garage organizing, it’s wise to make a plan before you even start working. In order to effectively remove, organize and replace what’s being kept, you’ll have to know where you’re sending the things you no longer plan to store. Is everything bound for disposal or are some items serviceable enough for donation to a worthy cause? How much of your waste should be recycled, either in accordance with the law or simple environmental responsibility?

Large Garbage Pick Up, Simplified

It’s difficult for most people to estimate the amount of refuse they’ll have at the end of the project, which can, in turn, throw your disposal plans off-kilter. Underestimating the amount is common, and it leaves you scrambling to process more than you initially planned. When you’re on a tight schedule, there’s really no room for error.

Since it’s highly unlikely you’ll be able to fit all your project waste into the curbside trash cans, you’ll need to start considering your disposal options early. In the end, you’re really only left with a few: DIY hauling, local sanitation services, or professional assistance.

Managing your own waste will require you to have access to a large vehicle, one capable of making multiple trips to a few different locations. You’ll probably have to make more than one trip to your favorite donation center alone. Because recycling centers are limited in what each facility will accept, you may have to hit more than one of these to responsibly and ethically get rid of old items. When landfill trips are unavoidable, you’ll need to be prepared to pay any associated usage fees and even unload the truck on your own.

Municipal waste management departments often offer some large garbage pick up services, though you may need to schedule appointments for some items. Others may not be accepted, so you’ll still be on the hook for disposing of them on your own. You may be limited in how many times you can avail yourself of these community services during a given period, and scheduling can be difficult if you have a deadline.
