Most of the time, you can fit your regular weekly garbage in the provided trash bins. However, when you have old furniture, broken appliances, a large amount of debris from a DIY project, or other bulky waste, what do you do? You have a few different options here, but none of them is as easy as calling Junk King. We provide easy, affordable junk hauling services in Dayton, Ohio, and the surrounding areas.
Bulk Pickup – Your Options
Getting rid of an old refrigerator, dresser, or cabinets isn’t easy. You can’t fit them in your garbage bins, after all. However, the City of Dayton does provide bulk waste collection once a month. They send out large trucks to collect appliances, furniture, and other bulky waste that has been left at the curb. This service is included in your standard city garbage fees, so it won’t cost you extra.
Another option is to haul away the bulky garbage yourself. This seems like the easiest option in some ways. You don’t have to wait for the city, and you can get rid of the bulky items right away. However, there are downsides here, too.
The third option is, by far, the easiest: call Junk King. We will come pick up your bulky waste whenever you need it. We’re available more than just a single day each month, and we have all the equipment needed to collect any amount of garbage, trash, and other items. All you have to do is let us know when you need us. We will provide you with a free, no-obligation estimate that does not include any hidden fees or extra charges.
City Services Have Downsides
While using Dayton’s bulky pickup may seem easy and very straightforward, there are a few downsides to it. First, the pickup is only done one Friday of the month. This Friday varies depending on where you live, so you do have to check the city’s schedule. You also have to submit a pickup request. If you don’t, the city will skip your address, even if you have bulky waste at the curb. If you miss the bulky pickup day for your neighborhood, you will have to figure out some place to store your bulky garbage for a month. If you leave it out at the curb, you could be fined.
Another downside is that there are many items that the city will not pick up. They will not take automotive parts, drywall, plaster, wood, air conditioners, hot tubs, HVAC items, and some other unacceptable items. They also have specific rules for certain types of waste. For example, ward waste has to be tied into bundles, and those bundles cannot weigh more than 35 pounds. Glass must be taped to prevent shattering. The city will also not pick up anything from a foreclosure or eviction.
Hauling Bulky Waste Can Be a Pain
If you don’t want to make use of the city’s bulk pickup, you could load up your junk and haul it to the city landfill yourself. In theory, this sounds very easy. In practice, however, there are some downsides to hauling away your bulky waste.
First, you have to have a vehicle capable of hauling whatever junk it is you’re getting rid of. This typically means you need a truck. If you don’t have one, you’ll have to ask to borrow one from a friend or family member. You could also rent a truck, but if you do any damage to it while loading up old furniture or appliances, you will likely be charged for the repairs.
Second, you have to have the manpower to get the bulky waste into the vehicle. This may not be bad if it’s a lot of yard waste or smaller items. However, if you’re hauling away a refrigerator, large sofa, or anything else that’s bulky and heavy, it can be challenging. You’re also responsible if anyone gets injured while loading or unloading your junk.
Finally, you will have to pay for fuel to get to the dump and for any fees associated with dumping items there. You may also not be allowed to dump certain items. Landfills typically do not want anything that includes dangerous chemicals. This can include anything that contains freon or similar hazards.
Junk King is Available When You Need Us
Junk King combines the benefits of both a city pickup with hauling away your junk yourself. We take care of everything, but we also work with your schedule. We will come pick up your bulky waste when you need us, so you’re not restricted by the city’s schedule. We have our own trucks, and our team is trained to move large items safely. You won’t need to worry about getting people together to load your heavy waste. We are fully insured as well.
In addition to these benefits, we also take many things that the city won’t pick up. We will take refrigerators, freezers, hot tubs, and much, much more. About the only thing we cannot collect is hazardous waste.
You don’t have to take your junk out to the curb, either. Our team will remove the items for your home carefully, ensuring that nothing is damaged on the way out. We have dollies and other tools to help make the process easy and safe.
What We Take
We will haul away just about everything as long as it doesn’t contain hazardous waste. This includes furniture, appliances, refrigerators, DIY construction waste, mattresses, electronics, hot tubs, televisions, yard waste, and much more. If you have any question as to whether or not we can haul it, just give us a call or text a photo of the junk to us. We will let you know what we can and cannot handle.
We Don’t Junk Everything
What happens to the junk we pick up? Most people assume we simply haul it to the dump, but we don’t. Junk King is dedicated to reducing our impact on the environment, and we do so in several different ways. First, if your furniture or other large items are still usable, we will donate them. We work with a number of organizations in the Dayton area that help those in need. These charities are often looking for gently used furniture and other things that can be passed on to those who simply cannot afford them.
Unfortunately, some furniture or appliances are no longer usable. In that case, we do try to recycle whatever we can. Some materials cannot be reused, but many items have at least some materials that can be removed and recycled. We take everything from plastic and glass to scrap metal and wood to local recycling centers.
You don’t have to do anything about donating or recycling your junk. While we always appreciate a heads up on what we might be able to donate, it’s not required. We will look over all of the furniture we pick up to determine what might be useful and what is past its prime.
Organizing Your Bulky Waste for Pickup
How should you organize your bulky waste for pickup? If you’re using Junk King, you don’t have to do much. It is very helpful to have your loose waste ready in bags. If you have larger pieces such as tree branches, you don’t necessarily need to cut them up into smaller sizes. If there’s a concern, we will talk to you about it before we arrive to pick things up.
Other than that, you don’t need to move anything out of your home. We will remove everything. If you are cleaning out a foreclosed property, tenant-abandoned rental unit, or other home with a lot of junk, it may be helpful for you to separate out what you’re keeping from what you want us to take. This helps ensure that we do not accidentally take something you want to keep. Dealing with a property full of stuff can be stressful, and we don’t want to add to that stress.
