How Much Does Trash & Junk Removal Cost in Marietta?


Junk Removal

updated 7/18/22


Do you know how much you’ll spend if you want to have your junk and trash removed? Even if you’ve never thought about it before, chances are good that at some point you’ll want some removal help. When that time comes, don’t load up your car and make multiple trips to the dump; you’ll stink up your car and end up paying more in gas and landfill fees. Not only that, but you’ll also not be giving anyone the chance to recycle your trash before it gets pushed out to that sea of trash. Call us instead—Junk King Cobb County is your best and only real solution for trash and junk removal from your property or business.

Cobb County Disposal Charges and the Junk King Comparison


Could you picture 400 pounds in your mind, right now if you were asked to? Could you accurately weigh it out when looking at trash and junk? For Cobb County residents, in order to use the General Waste Disposal site, you must pay an introductory fee of $8.50 for the first 400 pounds of junk you take, after that you are charged additionally for every pound that is brought. That price is higher if you are removing construction or demolition debris ($10.00) for the first 400 pounds. Non-residents? Their disposals start at $50.00 for the first 400 pounds. 


If you do not know what 400 pounds looks like, it’s the size of a fully-grown red deer. A mature lion or dolphin, a juvenile black bear, or a fully-grown gorilla. Why does this size comparison matter? It matters because it gives you a visual of how little maneuverability and space you have before you are coerced into paying more fees when you go the traditional disposal route. We can put this in an even more familiar sense too. The average half-ton truck can haul about 3,000 pounds inside of its bed. This means, not only are you reduced to disposing of your junk by less than a sixth of your truck’s bed at the maximum weight—you’re also going to need to pay for all of that extra stuff, pay for your gas, and pay for whatever other issues may arise as you maneuver through the process. (Hopefully, you don’t hurt yourself.)


 Now let’s look at the Junk King comparison. We know already that a 100% full Junk King truck equates to six full pickup truck loads. Not only do you get the entire worth of your truck bed—you get that entire capacity multiple times. What is that in cost? We can use the state of the art, custom-made pricing calculator to make the estimates. Using an area code in the Cobb County area, 30008, we can estimate that a full-service Junk King truck with full capacity will stand to be around $600-$650. Additionally, the fact that it’s a full-service option means that there are added features that you won’t find even from our competitors, let alone from the General Waste Disposal site. Full-service means you get a crew delivered to you to help with the removal of junk. You also get the #1 rated customer service interaction for our sector. Let’s say none of that’s enough to warrant the cost for you—that’s alright because that cost could end up being lower. That’s because we only charge you for the amount of space you use.

What is the Average Price for Junk Removal in Marietta?


Any resident or property owner in Marietta can receive junk removal for between $10-$800, depending on the service provider, tools, and their policies for the removal aftercare. Having such a large range of prices isn’t exactly helpful, though, because it includes everything from full-scale estate clean outs to single item pickups and disposal. Further, the price for junk removal changes dramatically between both companies and the services provided. 


That is why it is beneficial to consider the average price for removals in a specific area instead. For example, according to the figures provided to Home Advisor for estimating averages, the average Junk King Atlanta removal comes to about $190. At the same time, the typical cost range sits between $115-$280, with a low of $60 and a high of $495. Additionally, businesses typically cost around $550-$600 for the cost of trash pickup, depending on the service available. 


It is worth noting that many removal professionals offer less-expensive options (i.e., the city of Atlanta has some options for free for residents); however, these budget-friendly options usually prove their worth for better or worse. For example, a removal company may complete a large removal for $200, but then there are a few things to think about, such as:


  • Whether or not they are recycling the junk they collect
  • Whether or not they will protect surrounding items from possible damages
  • Whether or not you will receive good customer support or assistance
  • Whether or not you are receiving services worth the cost being paid
  • Whether or not you are receiving the best possible servicing for your needs

How to Manage Your Waste at Home with a Simple Plan


Every homeowner knows how difficult it can be to keep the junk and clutter managed and under control—luckily, many suggestions can be found online for how to maintain a clean home or business. Here is Junk King’s suggestion for how to manage your waste at home using a simple plan:



  • Focus on one room at a time: it’s ideal that you consider each room separately when thinking about cleaning your home. Doing this will help clarify the materials needed, and the best approach (because you aren’t tracking multiple rooms’ worth of junk as you clean through them). 
  • Use the four categories: all items that can be moved easily should participate in a four-categories exercise or something similar. The items should be “moved” into their respective category: keep, donate, landfill, or fix. Use this process as a guide forward.
  • Purge and remove using the two-year rule: if you’ve not heard of it, it consists of: if you’ve not used something in two years, you probably don’t need it. Using this rule will be handy for those hard-to-decide-on items like Uncle Greg’s socks. 
  • Utilize storage options: for everything you choose to keep, create an organization plan or add the item to a previously decided plan. Organization is the keystone to a clean home with everything you could need. 
  • Keep count of how many times you use city-funded options: every resident of Atlanta that uses the city-funded weekly waste removal company is also paying for a limited yearly amount of both bulk item pickup and landfill dumps. However, many rules must be followed, and any that are violated result in heavy fines.  



For further ideas on how to dispose of trash and junk, try exploring the companies available around you by searching “junk disposal +Marietta +budget.” The trash and junk removal cost will change depending on the items and services you order. Consider whether or not it would be worth it to have more time to complete the removal (dumpster rental) or if it would be more worth it to have assistance with the removal (professional removal crew).

National Junk Removal Versus Your Junk King Marietta Pros


We can review and analyze this information in another way too; so far, we’ve only spoken about the most extreme cases, those people who need the entire bed of their truck or who need a full-service option in order to get their junk removed. Most people won’t need or want this most extreme option, so it will be helpful to look at some national averages. Home Advisor had this to say about the average junk removal prices:


Junk removal costs $233 on average with a typical range between $133 and $360. A full truckload runs $400 to $800. The minimum for a single item costs between $60 and $10. Each additional item runs $20 to $40 each. Removing construction debris, gravel or dirt runs $100 to $600 per truckload. Dumpster rentals range from $300 to $600 per week. 


Now consider the type of stuff you want to be removed. Is it appliances or furniture or a piano? Maybe it’s an entire dilapidated shed you want to be picked up and gone. Maybe it’s as simple as yard debris or some fencing. Chances are, for each of these you’ll run into a couple of hundred dollars for any of their removals. Home Guide also has things to say with regard to averages:


On average, junk removal costs $70 to $570 with most homeowners spending between $150 and $350, or $1.50 per ft³. A single-family home will pay around $210 for junk removal while a business will spend about $500. A full-size truck with a man load of 450 ft3 will cost around $550 to haul away junk. 


That’s quite the difference between the two advisory sites. All of their data has been collected over the entire national span of removal companies and depending on their sources, they both likely omit special cases or instances. For example, they most likely count in the costs for things like e-waste disposals and the extra charges that those removals incur. 


We can compare these more realistic costs with the cost of Junk King’s self-service option. For a three-day rental with a roll-away dumpster, you would be charged about $400, assuming that you used the entire dumpster. This service option includes the same deal of only paying for the space that you use inside of the dumpster, meaning that your final cost could come out lower than the estimates you’re given. You’d also have access to the Junk King MINI dumpsters—created to fit the most amount of junk and trash into the smallest space possible (your driveway). Unlike other roll-away dumpsters, the MINI was created with the intent of saving you the most amount of money possible, while doing the best job possible. It holds the same amount as 4 regular pickup trucks, and in the end, we take it away and you never have to worry about your junk again.
