If you are moving and need to clean out your home, then you may need to throw away quite a bit of garbage. In this situation, it may be a good idea to rent a dumpster. However, a metal garbage dumpster may be a bit pricey for you. If this is the case, then you do have a few options available to you.
Canvas Dumpster Bags
Some waste hauling and garbage removal companies offer dumpster bags instead of metal dumpster. These canvas bags can be purchased, filled, and then collected at your convenience. The bags hold a set amount of garbage, and the bag is thrown away along with your trash. The bags are fairly inexpensive and you will pay a removal fee based on where you live.
There are a few things to consider when it comes to the dumpster bags. Since the sides and bottom are made from canvas, they are flexible. This means that you need to be careful when filling the bag so it will not stretch out or expand past the sides. In many cases, the collection company will inform you that you should be able to place the bag handles together. If not, then the bag is filled incorrectly or overfilled. The handles are used to pick up the bag, so this can pose a problem on collection day.
Also, while weight is not an issue in terms of fees, waste that is too heavy can actually rupture the canvas bag. If you have heavy fill or construction debris, then you will need to take the plunge and rent a dumpster instead. However, if clothing, old furniture, and general household debris is what you need to get rid of, then a bag is a good choice.
A Junk Removal Service
If you have a number or large objects, like old appliances, broken furniture items, or other objects that simply take up too much space for a canvas dumpster, then you may want to contact a waste removal service, like USA Hauling Service. These services use large trucks, like the same type that a moving company will use, and they will collect and transport your junk from your home using this truck. The removal service fees are not charged based on weight. Fee structures are determined by the amount of space that your garbage takes up in the removal truck.
There are a few positives to consider when it comes to junk removal. A crew will remove items so you do not have to handle property that may be too heavy or bulky for you to even get out of your home. Also, the crew will dispose of your belongings in an environmentally friendly manner by donating or recycling the items.
