How Does Junk Removal Work?

Whether you’re removing yard debris, decluttering before a move, making home improvements, or anything in between, any kind of project that generates a large volume of trash needs a proper disposal method. Finding a proper junk removal solution beforehand can save you the headache of dealing with it during your project.


Using standard curbside trash bins or removing all of the junk yourself is a hassle. Standard bins are usually not large enough for big projects and taking on junk removal yourself can be difficult and impractical. Choose a junk removal solution to easily dispose of your trash after a project.

The Junk Removal Process

When it comes to junk removal, you can either hire a junk removal company or rent a roll-off dumpster. Conduct research to find what method of junk removal works best for you. Look at each company’s customer reviews, service offerings, and pricing structure. Compare the value each service brings and weigh its pros and cons.

When you hire a junk removal company, you’ll need to set an appointment for them to remove the waste. Their team will come out on the specified date, load your trash into their dumpster truck, and dispose of it for you. If you choose to rent a roll-off dumpster, you can use it throughout your rental period. At the end of your rental period, your vendor will pick up the dumpster and dispose of the waste for you.

If you live in a neighborhood that has a homeowner’s association, look into any rules and regulations regarding the placement of your items or your rental dumpster to avoid getting fined.

The Cost of Junk Removal

Many junk removal companies charge by the hour for their services. The cost will depend on a variety of factors including how much trash you have, how much time it takes to remove it, and other specific needs you may have.

When you rent a roll-off dumpster, rental companies typically charge you for the rental unit, delivery, and junk disposal. The total cost will depend on other factors including the duration and size of your rental.

At Anderson Rentals, we charge our customers a rental fee only if the dumpster hasn’t been moved or dumped after 28 days. This 28-day period starts after each pull. Our delivery charge includes both the unit delivery and pick up. Our disposal charge is a fixed rate and includes our team taking it to the landfill for waste disposal.

Why You Should Rent a Dumpster for Junk Removal

At the end of your project, you’ll need a way to get rid of the accumulated trash. While a dumpster rental or a professional junk removal service both do the job, dumpster rentals offer many benefits that shouldn’t be overlooked.

Save Money

Since many junk removal companies charge by the hour if you only have a few items you need to be removed this pricing structure might work for you. However, it can start to add up if you have a lot of waste. When you choose to rent a dumpster, you can cut costs by selecting the rental’s size according to what you need. What’s more, since the trash is already contained, you’ll only have a waste disposal fee instead of an hourly fee.

Have More Flexibility

When you rent a roll-off dumpster, you’re able to work according to your own timeline. If your project gets delayed due to bad weather or takes longer (or shorter) than you anticipated, you won’t have to worry about sticking to an appointment with a junk removal service.

Enjoy Peace of Mind

When you rent a roll-off dumpster, you can stay in control of the junk removal process and ensure nothing gets left behind or accidentally thrown away. For example, if you hire a junk removal company to dispose of extra items before you move, and they leave some behind or you find more items you wish to get rid of as you go, that leaves you with the unwanted hassle of figuring out a way to dispose of them. When you rent a roll-off dumpster, you can use it at your leisure until you’re done.
