If you’re decluttering, renovating or preparing for a move, you’re bound to end up with junk that you don’t want. That’s when you need junk removal services.
How Does Junk Removal Work?
Junk removal companies can help remove most kinds of trash, ensure proper disposal and usually provide options on how you want to get rid of your stuff. Most offer truck hauling services, which is suitable for junk that’s ready to be picked up like in clean-ups after renovations.
A dumpster rental is another option and is ideal for situations where you’re in the middle of decluttering and would need a couple of days to collect all the junk in one spot. The dumpster will then be picked up along with its contents at a pre-arranged time. Some professional movers like us offer disposal services, which can be helpful when you don’t want to take everything with you when you move.
The Things Junk Removal Companies Will and Will Not Take
It’s important to note that junk removal or disposal services will take many things: furniture, appliances, office equipment and various other items. Construction debris and yard waste can also be taken. It’s important to note that there are things that junk removal companies won’t take, mostly because they may be dangerous to transport and need proper disposal methods. They include chemicals, fuel or toxic substances. Construction debris that contains asbestos will also require professionals who specialize in asbestos disposal.
What Will Happen to All the Junk?
Junk removal companies aim to send as little trash as possible to landfills. Things will first separate salvageable junk and make sure they end up with people that will benefit from them. Furniture, clothing and linens in good condition are typically sent to relief groups and shelters. Recyclable materials, including asphalt from discarded roofing, are sent to recycling centers.
