Junk Removal Tips

Removing Unwanted Junk

How much does junk removal cost?

With Hometown, getting a no-obligation quote is always free, but hiring a junk removal service to remove your unwanted items always comes at a cost.

It's relatively common for companies to charge a minimum of $75 to $100 for any removal, no matter how minimal it may be. If you have an entire house worth of debris, then you can expect to pay upwards of $500 to $1,000, though this number can be much higher in a hoarding situation or other large volume cleanup project.

Some companies quote a price based on the expected volume of the debris in the truck, e.g., a full truckload, 1/2 truckload, or 1/4 truckload, while others quote by the hour.

What factors affect junk removal cost?

There are a number of factors that can influence the cost of junk removal, like:

  • Location of the job site as well as its proximity to the company and/or landfill/recycling center
  • Size and complexity of the job, e.g. how accessible the junk is
  • Type of waste, junk, or debris to be removed

The cost to haul junk varies by location. Customers in Los Angeles or New York City can expect to pay more for junk removal than those in Fort Wayne, Indiana would pay for the same size project.

The amount of junk that needs to be removed is a big factor, too. For example, large cleanups will require a bigger truck or container with a large loading capacity, as well as more labor hours to complete the job. The same is true for complex cleanups, like having to carry items down multiple flights of stairs or removing an old heavy piano that needs to be disassembled in order to remove it safely, or other situations that require more time and/or manpower.

Certain types of waste, junk, and debris cost more to dispose of than others. For example, hazardous materials cost more due to environmental laws, safety concerns, and disposal requirements.
