Tips on removing junk in Lyndon, KY
Why it’s important to use junk haulers with a good reputation
Businesses that have an established reputation and are properly permitted to haul waste in your city or town abide by the local laws and guidelines designed to ensure waste is dropped off at the proper destination (e.g., landfill, recycling center, etc.).
If you choose an unknown junk removal service, there’s no guarantee your load is disposed of properly. In the event that your load is illegally dumped, you could be liable for the violation. Authorities can often trace it back to the source by finding clues in the junk itself.
Will disposal services remove hazardous debris?
In general, all junk removal companies will remove non-hazardous material including mattresses, furniture, unwanted appliances, and just about anything you can imagine. In order to haul hazardous wastes, such as asbestos, a junk removal business must have the proper licensing. Many do not carry this license, and thus cannot haul hazardous debris. This would also apply to household hazardous wastes and other toxic debris.
Many companies won’t haul away refrigerators or air conditioners until the units have had the refrigerant removed by a licensed specialist and the item has been red tagged. Always be sure to ask about hazardous materials to see which, if any, are accepted by the junk removal company.
