It’s never easy to manage a large amount of waste, but it can feel even more stressful when you’re in a densely-populated city. Moving, clearing out an estate, renovating or just organizing your space can generate a lot of garbage quickly, and there are times when regular DSNY pickup just won’t cut it.
Finding the right solution for junk removal in Brooklyn can feel daunting, especially when it feels like you have thousands of options. The truth is, it really all boils down to three choices: hauling it yourself, working within the DSNY service framework, or calling in the professionals.
Junk Removal in Brooklyn You Can Feel Good About
When settling on the right solution for a larger-than-normal volume of waste, it’s important to be sure you’re making choices you can feel good about at the end of the day. How good can you feel about a clean space when it’s gained at the expense of a clean and healthy environment?
Chances are, you’ll probably decide to throw away a fair number of perfectly usable items for which you simply no longer have a need. Donation is always the best possible choice for these items, as it allows you to support charitable organizations and the people they serve while freeing up valuable space in your home or office. Transportation, however, can be a problem.
While there are plenty of charitable organizations that accept donated items, very few offer pickup services. Of those that do offer pickup, slots can be booked weeks or even months in advance due to high demand. This means you’ll be responsible for arranging transportation, no mean feat when you have lots of large items in an urban area where few residents own large trucks. By the time you pay for truck rental, insurance and fueling costs, your free donation can cost a pretty penny. Not to mention the back-breaking labor of moving everything yourself.
What about those items far beyond repair? The last thing you want to do is toss them into a landfill, even though they’re not suitable for donation. There’s no shortage of recycling facilities, even for uncommon or hard-to-process items. Again, the trouble lies in simply getting those items to the right recycling center.
DSNY offers bulk pickup services, but you’ll need to jump through a number of bureaucratic hoops to schedule pickup for certain items. Only some of those items will be recycled, so it’s a safe bet your purging project will have at least some landfill impact. Misinterpret or misunderstand guidelines and you may also find yourself facing fines, penalties and citations.
