Removing Unwanted Junk
What can I get rid of using a junk removal service?
Generally speaking, junk removal companies accept more items than dumpster rental companies.
A junk removal service may be more willing to remove some of the items that you can't put in a dumpster, like tires, refrigerators, or old cans of paint.
Other common items that most junk removal companies accept include:
- Box springs and mattresses
- Car parts
- Hot tubs
- Propane tanks
- Yard waste
How much does junk removal cost?
Most junk removal companies charge a minimum rate—typically $75 - $125—regardless of how small the removal job is. For large projects, like whole-home cleanouts and hoarding jobs, you could end up paying upwards of $2,000.
The amount of junk that needs to be removed, where the junk is located, how heavy the junk is (and whether it needs to be disassembled), and who you hire are some of the biggest factors affecting junk removal cost.
