What You Should Know About Debris Removal

Posted by Junk King on Jul 29, 2019 5:37:54 PM



At first glance, debris removal may not seem all that complicated. But there are a number of things you should know to make a good debris removal choice. 

Debris removal is a fact of life for just about every business, every household, and even for many individuals. Whether it's simply excessive belongings or equipment that needs to be disposed of, or the results of large projects such as landscaping, remodeling, or office relocation, debris removal is usually the pressing need when you're done.

Debris Removal Options

While it may seem to be a simple matter to just haul your junk items to the nearest dump and be done with it, proper debris removal is never that easy. In fact, even finding a near-by landfill or waste management facility can be challenging depending on where you live.

Landfill space fills up fast. Americans generate about 4.4 pounds of trash per day, and while some of it is recyclable, most ends up in the dump. 

According to a post at Dumpsters.com,

"Now, many 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 Americans is fewer opportunities to unload their own junk and debris. Another set of statistics paints a somewhat alarming picture of the state of landfills, 

"The US generates more than 258 million tons of municipal solid waste each year — that’s all the packaging, clothing, bottles, food scraps, newspapers, batteries, and everything else that gets thrown into garbage cans and hauled onto sidewalks for weekly pick-up.

Around 34.6% of that waste gets recycled, some gets burned for energy, and the rest gets sent to landfills. Now it looks like the 2,000 active landfills in the US that hold the bulk of this trash are reaching their capacity..."

Another issue with the DIY approach to debris removal is that you likely don't have a suitable vehicle for hauling large loads of junk. And borrowing or renting a truck can be problematic and even costly. 

Other options include hiring a local person who advertises junk removal and hauling services. The problem with this choice is that the competence, trustworthiness, and professionalism of a local guy with a truck cannot be easily established.

What You Need to Know for Efficient Debris Removal

If you're a homeowner or a renter you realize you can't have large piles of debris and junk cluttering up your home or yard while you wait for the weekly garbage service haul away small quantities of debris each time. 

And, if you're a business owner or constructions contractor, you definitely cannot afford to have this debris simply sitting on-site while you feed it piecemeal into your commercial dumpster. It may work eventually and you may think you've saved some money, but it is a process fraught with problems and inefficiencies.

Efficient debris removal should be the goal and there is really only one good option for making that happen. 

Call In the Professionals

Maybe you're a property manager or landlord who needs to get rid of large amounts of debris left by the previous tenants in one of your rental units. There’s nothing more frustrating than having to clear out an entire apartment, house, or office full of junk before you can hire a janitorial company to clean the building.

As a construction contractor, large or small, you, too, must deal with debris clean up and removal. And usually on an regular, ongoing basis. While you tend to manage this task yourself, it's not always cost-effective or efficient to have your crew hauling debris.

For business owners, outsourcing your debris removal to a professional firm is a smart management decision.

If you're a homeowner or renter, you are probably hesitant to call a professional firm because you're afraid it might be prohibitively expensive, or not a good fit for you debris removal needs.

But, with the right firm, all of these situations can be managed easily, quickly and efficiently by a professional debris removal service. In fact, your best option is to simply call and let the experts do all the work.
