Tips on removing junk in Wilmington, NC
What does it cost to hire a junk removal company?
Junk removal companies have minimum service fees starting at between $50 and $125, and this is the least amount you can expect to pay to have them come out and pick up a small load, such as a single piece of furniture.
More complex cleanups will cost more, and construction or demolition debris costs more to cleanup compared to household junk due to the increased labor and weight of the debris. Factors that influence cost include the volume and the weight of the debris.
The average junk removal project will cost a customer $150 to $500. However, a whole-house cleanout or a construction job site debris cleanup can easily run several thousand dollars.
Do junk haulers accept asbestos or other hazardous materials?
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.
