Junk Removal Tips

Removing Unwanted Junk

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.

What factors affect junk removal cost?

There are a number of factors that can affect the cost of junk removal, like:

  • Location of the job site as well as its proximity to the company and/or landfill/recycling center
  • Size and complexity of the job, e.g. how accessible the junk is
  • Type of waste, junk, or debris to be removed

The cost to haul junk varies by location. For example, customers in a large metropolitan area, like Los Angeles or New York City, can expect to pay more for junk removal than those in smaller cities.

The amount of junk that needs to be removed is a big factor, too. For example, big cleanups will require a larger loading capacity truck or container, as well as more labor hours to complete the work. The same is true for complex cleanups, like having to carry items down multiple flights of stairs or removing an old heavy piano that needs to be disassembled in order to remove it safely, or other situations that require more time and/or manpower.
