The only thing better than not needing garbage removal is to have your garbage removal done for you. The good news is that it really is a thing!
"I just love garbage removal!", said no one. Ever.
Garbage removal and taking out the trash probably don't rank very high on anyone's list of fun things to do. And that's understandable. But it's necessary chore that sometimes can become more challenging than tedious.
What About All the Big Garbage?
All garbage is not created equal. While most of your garbage, trash, and junk can fit into your residential waste bins or recycling bins, not everything does all the time. So, what do you do with those items?
You could try simply putting them outside on the curb or street, right alongside your residential waste bins. But, odds are this is not going to be a really good strategy. In fact, you are likely to find that it won't work at all.
Why is that?
Turns out that there are quite a few garbage items that your municipal waste management service (i.e. the garbage truck) won’t pick up for you. This can include large electronics, old furniture, broken appliances and even your home DIY construction project materials.
"But my stuff isn't too big - it's just heavy!"
Yeah. Well, if your garbage items bulky and heavy, they probably won’t take them in that case either. And even if think your garbage service will pick up your heavy items, you still have to do the work of hauling those things out of the house, garage or backyard, and out onto the curb.
And, if they're sitting next to your bins instead of inside (because they don't fit!) you run a very real risk that they might be broken apart and scattered on the sidewalk or street in front of your house.
Need Garbage Removal?
You may be thinking that you could just haul your garbage items to the nearest dump and be done with it. Well, you could... but, proper junk and garbage removal is never quite that easy. Even finding a landfill or waste management facility near you that will take your garbage can be challenging depending on where you live.
A disturbing fact to most Americans is that the available landfill space is filling up fast. In the U.S. we generate almost five pounds of trash per day, and even though much of it is recyclable, most ends up in a dump.
According to one article,
"[M]any local landfills are closing because there’s no more room. The National Waste and Recycling Association reported that there were once 8,000 active landfills in the United States. That number is now down to 3,091."
What this means for most of us is that there are increasingly fewer places to unload our own garbage, junk and other unwanted materials.
Another issue with doing it yourself is that you have to have a suitable vehicle for hauling large junk and garbage items. And if you have to borrow or rent a truck that can be a hassle and cost you more money.
Another option might be to hire some local person advertising junk removal and hauling services. The problem with this route is that it's not easy to establish the competence, trustworthiness, and professionalism of a local guy with a truck, and that can lead to other issues.
