Junk Removal Tips

Removing Unwanted Junk

How much does it cost to hire a junk removal company?

When hiring a junk removal company, you can expect to pay anywhere from $75 to $150 for a small cleanup project, or as much as $2,000 or more for a large cleanup, like a whole-home cleanout.

Job Size Average Cost Example Project
Small $50 - $200 1 - 2 pieces of furniture or appliance
Medium $400 - $800 Remove all furniture and appliances from the house. Foreclosure, hoarding or eviction cleanups.
Large $1,000 - $5,000 (or more) Debris removal from garage demolition.
Commercial building cleanouts.

What factors affect the cost to hire a junk removal company?

There are multiple factors that can influence the cost of junk removal, including:

  • Location of the job site, including its proximity to the company and/or landfill/recycling center
  • Size and complexity of the project, e.g. how accessible the junk is, whether or not things need to be disassembled, etc.
  • Type of waste, junk, or debris to be removed

Junk removal costs vary from one location to the next. For example, customers in Los Angeles or New York City will pay more for junk removal than those in a smaller suburb would pay for the same size project.

The amount of junk that needs to be removed plays a big role, too. For example, big cleanups will require a larger truck or trailer and more labor hours to complete the job. The same is true for complex cleanups, like having to carry heavy items down multiple flights of stairs or removing an old piano that needs to be disassembled in order to remove it safely.

Certain types of waste, junk, and debris cost more to dispose of than others, like hazardous materials, which have more stringent environmental laws, safety concerns, and disposal requirements.
