Dumpster Rental vs. Junk Hauling

Have you ever looked out your window and said, “That is a horrendous eyesore my neighbor has put out on his front lawn.” We’re talking about the dumpster, that massive box constructed of green, black, or blue metal that is taking up a good portion of your view and emitting an appalling stink. Do you want to be the one who does that to your neighbors? There are other alternatives, and junk hauling is one of them. Why store all that trash until the dumpster is full when you can have it hauled away and eliminate the need to replant your grass next year?
You might want a dumpster if you are demolishing a house or for other large scale projects to keep things clean.  Even for those kinds of jobs, you can call a junk hauling company like Junk King to handle the entire load. The rates are typically lower and you don’t have to worry about children or animals climbing into the dumpster and getting hurt. Even those dumpsters that lock can still be accessed by an enterprising youth with a thirst for adventure. There are a number of dumpster accidents involving children every year.
Junk hauling companies like Junk King also offer recycling services, something you won’t likely get from a dumpster rental company. If you’re stripping copper, getting rid of plastic tubing, or throwing out furniture you’ll want someone to  haul it to a recycling plant.  That way, you can prevent having an eye sore on your green lawn and be green yourself by having  junk disposed of in an eco-friendly manner.
In addition, dumpsters kill grass and tear up pavement, so no matter where you put them down you’ll be looking at a repair bill of some kind when the job is done. For a construction job, if you’re planning on using the home while you’re working, or moving back in immediately after, having the junk hauled away is a better option. It’s cleaner and less likely to cause a stink, literally and with the neighbors.
That covers the dumpster on residential property options, but what about commercial use? Some businesses, like restaurants for instance, need to have a dumpster out back to get rid of daily paper and food waste. There really isn’t any way around that. Junk hauling is a way to cut down on the size and price of a dumpster though. There is weekly waste from inside the office and other large junk items that can be hauled away on a regular or as-needed schedule. Think about it. Do you really need that huge dumpster out back? Chances are you could get a smaller one and hire Junk King for those bigger items.

If you are on the fence between a dumpster of junk hauling, simply call Junk King at 1-888-888-JUNK and have all your questions and concerns answered promptly.
