Where do you turn when the things you need to get rid of won’t fit in the curbside garbage? From furniture to appliances, or even commercial waste, dealing with large items can be a major pain. Fortunately, you have a few options for removing bulky items.
Weighing Your Big Item Pickup Options
Large items may not fit in the garbage can, but your local sanitation department may still offer some disposal options for bulky pieces. This option is typically free, but you should expect to have indirect costs associated with time and effort.
For instance, you may need to schedule special big item pickup days or even weeks in advance. Depending on the type of items you’re dealing with, you may also have to take special measures to comply with all municipal pickup rules and guidelines. Mattresses, for instance, may need to be placed in special bags designed to prevent the spread of bedbugs. Appliances, particularly those containing refrigerant, will come with a host of criteria you must meet before most municipal service providers will remove them.
Donation is a great choice for large items that are still useful, but it’s usually a challenge to find donation centers which will not only accept large items but also offer pickup services. Among the relatively few who do offer pickup, you’ll need to plan for long delays in scheduling due to the high demand of such services.
If you’re on a tight schedule, you may be tempted to simply haul the items away yourself to avoid scheduling conflicts. This will require you to have access to a large enough vehicle, not to mention fueling and toll costs, or help loading and unloading a bulky item onto the truck. In the end, the “cheaper” do-it-yourself option can be the most expensive.
Quick and Easy Bulky Item Removal
When you want large items removed from your space with minimal fuss, working with professionals is always the best bet. These services can even pay for themselves, once you factor in the time spent trying to schedule free pickup or the costs associated with renting and using a large vehicle. Your time is valuable, so why spend it wrestling with sanitation departments or charity pickup services? Why risk your own health and safety to haul heavy items away on your own?
