If you have a lot of junk to get rid of in your home, there are a couple of methods for getting the items removed from your property. Here are some of the most common junk removal solutions for residential use. 

Junk Hauling

A junk hauling company can be a very convenient option if you only have a few items to haul away, especially if those items are very large. One major selling point of a junk removal company is that they may come onto the property to remove the item for you. That means you won't have to enlist someone else's help to bring up the old freezer or couch from your basement. A junk removal service can also be a one-time hire for a quick experience. 

Rental Dumpsters

If you want to get rid of stuff more gradually or you have a lot of items to get rid of, then roll-off dumpsters may be your best option. You'll be able to keep the dumpster for several weeks and schedule pick-ups as needed when the dumpster gets close to full. The dumpster rental is a fairly convenient process. The dumpster can be delivered to your property, and the junk will be emptied from your roll-off dumpsters upon your request. Companies like Michael's Rolloff Solutions may be able to help.

Heavy-Duty Bags

Another option that's becoming popular is to buy a heavy-duty plastic bag to haul garbage away from your home. You can pick up these bags at your local home improvement store, and they can often store hundreds to thousands of pounds of junk. 


Finally, consider recycling as an environmentally friendly and potentially cost saving junk option. A recycling service may pay you for certain types of used materials, such as scrap metals. Even if they charge you to make the pickup, a recycling center can be on par with a junk hauling service while helping you to avoid placing your items in the landfill. 

So, how do you choose between these different types of services? The first step is to see what's available in your area; it's generally viable to choose a company within a 50-mile radius since further away companies will charge you a surcharge for their travel time. Compare the costs for the containers, as well as your options for customizing your frequency of pickups. Each of these choices can be a beneficial and low-maintenance option for hauling junk away from your property.
