When you have a towering waste pile and a rapidly approaching deadline, finding large-scale waste management can feel like an any-port-in-a-storm situation. The truth is, there’s more lurking behind rock-bottom rubbish removal quotes than you might realize. Your organization or clean-out project can have far-reaching implications for the environment, the community as a whole and your peace of mind.
Before you settle on the first disposal option you find, it’s wise to take a bit of time to explore high-volume disposal a bit further so you can make an informed decision. Even when time really is money, knowing what to expect and having the ability to prevent any unpleasant surprises is a sound investment.
Beyond Rubbish Removal Quotes: What You Should Consider Before Choosing
When it comes to options for large-volume waste disposal, options available to Broward County residents fall into three broad categories: municipal services, private hauling or do-it-yourself removal.
Municipal bulk disposal is available once per month to residents of unincorporated Broward County, on a schedule set by the Solid Waste and Recycling Services of Broward County. If you’re working on a project with a self-imposed deadline, scheduling may not be a concern. If your project is of the more time-sensitive variety, though, this may be less than ideal.
When working with municipal haulers, you will be forced to bend your entire project timeline around the one day of the month when they’ll come to remove unwanted bulky items. They don’t accept all types of waste, however, and you could find yourself in a bind when collection day comes and goes, and you still have waste they wouldn’t accept. If you’re already short on time and you still have construction and demolition waste, for instance, you’ll still have to scramble to secure disposal for that debris separately.
Municipal haulers will also not accept any materials or waste generated by commercial operations, even a private landscaping or lawn care service. They will, however, accept furniture, appliances, non-commercial lawn waste, rolled fencing, lumber and metal poles. Most of these items are not recycled or donated except the items required by state or federal law. A sofa set out for collection in perfectly usable condition will be taken to the nearest landfill, not the nearest donation center. The environmental impact of working with municipal haulers is significant.
There’s also the impact on your body to consider. All items, even the heaviest and most difficult to maneuver, must be dragged down to the curb before 7AM on your scheduled collection day. If heavy lifting is a struggle, you’re on your own with municipal services.
Doing it yourself can be a tempting alternative to jumping through hoops with municipal rules and regulations, but it can quickly become expensive and overwhelming even if you do have access to a vehicle suitable for hauling large waste. Without access to a truck, you’ll be responsible for rental, administrative and insurance fees, not to mention fueling costs and any expenses incurred at recycling or disposal centers. Add in the manual labor, the time you’ll have to divert away from the parts of your project no one else can manage in order to handle waste, the risk of injury and the aggravation of trash detail and the true costs of DIY hauling become apparent.
This is where private hauling can be a lifesaver. Working with a professional waste management provider who understands not only the importance of your project but also the urgency of protecting the environment can change everything about your experience.
