Tips on removing junk in Puyallup, WA
What type of wastes do junk removal companies pick up?
Some will handle just about any type of cleanup, including household hazardous wastes like construction and demolition debris containing asbestos. That’s not the case with every company, though. Most trash removal companies will pick up the following debris:
- Furniture and appliances
- Construction and demolition (C&D) debris, such as wood, concrete and drywall
- Yard debris
- Outdoor junk including playsets, patios, sheds, small structures and scrap
- Household debris from basements, garages, attics, or whole-home cleanouts
- Items for charitable donations, such as clothing, electronics and appliances
How junk removal companies determine their rates
Many junk haulers charge customers based upon the volume of waste or debris in the back of the truck. For example, you’d pay more for a full truckload than you would for a half load.
This is beneficial in that you’re not paying for a full truckload unless your waste or debris actually consumes that much. In comparison, when you rent a dumpster, you’re paying for the entire dumpster whether you fill it or not.
Keep in mind that other factors can play a role in the final cost of your junk removal project, including accessibility, labor required to get the job done, and type of debris.
