Who should I hire to help with my trash removal?

Hiring a local junk removal company to assist with your trash removal project is a great option. Not only do they thoroughly understand local disposal laws and have great relationships with local charities, but they also typically provide better customer service, lower prices, and faster, more responsive services than the big name companies.

How much does trash removal cost?

Most junk and trash removal services have a minimum charge of $75-$100.

One of the biggest factors influencing cost is the amount of items you have. The more items you have to remove, the more labor hours and people it will take to get the project done.

Similarly, most companies will quote a price based on the expected volume of the debris in the truck (i.e., a full truckload, 1/2 truckload, or 1/4 truckload), so the more space your items take up in the truck, the more you can expect to pay for your junk removal project.

How long does trash removal take?

Trash removal takes anywhere from a few minutes to a full 8-hour day or more. If you have a single item to remove or a small pile, a junk removal company can remove your item(s) in a matter of minutes. For larger cleanout projects, you can expect it to take an hour or more. Naturally, the size and complexity of your project will affect how long it takes.
