Junk Removal Tips

Removing Unwanted Junk

When Hiring a Junk Removal Company Makes the Most Sense:

  • You only have a few large, bulk trash items (junk removal service is typically cheaper than renting a dumpster in this situation)
  • You have a lot of debris in a central spot and are willing to pay a little extra for someone else's labor to load and haul the junk
  • You want the junk to be removed and out of sight quickly.
  • You want someone else to load your debris for you.

When Renting a Dumpster Makes the Most Sense:

  • You want the flexibility to load the container over time. (A typical rental includes up to 7 days.)
  • You don't mind loading the junk or debris yourself to save a little money on labor.
  • You have more than 3 or 4 cubic yards of material. (Roll-off containers typically start at 10 cubic yards, so if you only have 3 or 4 cubic yards of material, you're paying for more dumpster than you need.)

Comparing Junk Removal Costs

The cost of hiring a junk removal service or renting a dumpster varies based on several factors, including:

  • location
  • volume of junk/debris
  • duration of service
  • disposal fees
  • who you hire

For large cleanups, junk removal services cost more than renting a dumpster because of the added labor costs involved. For smaller cleanups, like removing some furniture or a refrigerator, it would cost less to have someone remove it. If you rent a dumpster, you will likely be paying for more dumpster than you need.

Average Junk Removal Service Prices

  • Minimum charge: $75 - $150
  • Household junk: $200 - $300
  • Construction, concrete, brick debris: $300 - $400
  • Yard waste: $200 - $300

Costs are generally steeper in cities with a higher cost of living, such as New York City or Los Angeles, and lower in areas with a low cost of living. The distance the dumpster or junk removal company has to travel to/from your property, as well as to the landfill or recycling center, may also influence pricing.

Comparing Junk Removal Costs to Dumpster Rental Prices

The pricing in both cases can vary significantly based on your location, the type/amount of material to be loaded, etc. In most cases, dumpster rental prices fall between $300 and $600 for a seven-day rental.

The pricing structure for most junk removal services is based on the type of junk you’re removing and how much of it.

If you need to remove only a few large items, like furniture or appliances, hiring a junk removal service is the more cost-effective option. Renting a dumpster is more economical choice for bigger jobs where you’ll be throwing out at least 7-cubic-yards of material or more.
