How much does junk removal cost?

- Yard waste: $200-$800
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.
How do junk removal costs compare to the cost of renting a dumpster?
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.
