Waste Removal Cost

Doing your own waste removal will usually be the most affordable option. However, if you don't have a truck or trailer for hauling large loads, then you will need to coordinate with a friend or neighbor for the use of a vehicle to handle your materials. You can consider the rental of a utility trailer with costs starting in the range of $15 per day. It's wise to think about rental insurance just to be safe in the event of problems during the towing of waste to your local dump.
In addition to being sure of an available method of towing, you may want to purchase waste bags to keep smaller materials from flying away. This is dependent on the type of waste being removed, and it will add a few dollars to your costs. Additionally, you will need to plan for gasoline costs as you drive to and from the dump.
Hiring Helpers for Waste Removal
If your job is extensive or involves larger materials, you may want to hire a waste removal company. You can consider a handyman for the job, or you can hire a licensed contractor. While labor rates with a private individual completing the task may be lower, a contractor provides some sense of security in assuring you of proper conduct along with protection against property damages or losses. A contractor will usually provide licensed and bonded service, creating added peace of mind as workers are on your property. Expect to pay at least $10 per hour for a private worker and at least $15 per hour for a professional.
Free Waste Removal Options
Keep in mind that some household waste may prove valuable to another individual. Old appliances, for example, may be desirable to those who are talented at fixing old equipment. You can advertise salvageable materials as free offerings in an effort to find a no-cost removal solution. Additionally, some companies will include free removal of old carpet, flooring or appliances as a service provided with new installation.
