Do you
have a big project on the horizon? One that will generate large
amounts of waste? Getting rid of this junk is something you will have
to consider, and most homeowners are left with two options: rent a
dumpster or hire a junk removal service.
So
which option is the best for you? Well, it depends on a variety of
factors such as the type of project, the kind of waste being
disposed, your budget, and personal preferences. Both options offer
their own distinct advantages and disadvantages, which we will cover
in this article.

Dumpster Rentals

The
process of renting a dumpster is easy. Just call up a local service
and set up a delivery date. You fill the dumpster up as you go, and
call them back to haul it away. It’s that simple.
Pros
  • Easy, convenient process
  • You set the pick-up date, so there is no hard deadline
  • Good for projects that may last several days or weeks
  • Eliminates the process of driving back and forth to the local dump
Cons
  • More work than junk removers because you have to fill the dumpster
    on your own
  • Not all items can go in a dumpster. Click here to learn about

Professional Junk
Removers

When
using a professional junk removal service, you are paying them to
take on the burden of moving and disposing of your garbage. They will
come to your house and remove whatever you request – the only time
you have to lift a finger is when you call them.
Pros
  • No heavy lifting is required by the customer
  • Good for getting rid of a few heavy items that you can’t move on
    your own
  • Your trash will be properly disposed of – whether that means
    thrown away or recycled
Cons
  • Big projects with lots of junk can result in high costs
