Junk removal 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.
