For Reliable Dumpster Rental, Washington DC Has A Great Option

Dumpster Rental


Sometimes we find ourselves with a project that requires a great deal of cleanup. If it’s simply a large amount of relatively small things like yard debris or all the trash after a football party in the backyard, it might all fit in our residential trash and recycling bins.


Or not. 


For some, that big project that requires cleanup is more along the lines of a remodel or home renovation. Maybe the front and back yards. Or we’re converting the garage into a home theater and game room.


And the trash, junk, and debris just keeps piling up, day after day. Sometimes for weeks. 


So, who wants to deal with all that and make multiple trips to the local waste transfer station? It’s not like you can load it all into a giant truck and take it straight to a landfill. Not in the Capital region anyway…


Which is why Junk King Washington DC offers reliable and affordable dumpster rentals.

A Dumpster Rental? At My House In DC?


Yes, you can do that.


And it really doesn’t matter where you live in the DC area – Upper Marlboro, Cheltenham, Fort Washington, Annapolis, or even Hyattsville – you can rent your own debris dumpster.


No, not those big ones.


You could actually, but there’s really no reason for the average homeowner in the greater DC area to have a twenty-three foot long, eight foot wide, and eight foot high beast of a box sitting in front of your house. Not unless you’re going to actually dismantle your entire home and have it carted off!


On the other hand, there are several reasons why a Washington DC resident could make use of a rental dumpster that takes up no more room than a full-size pickup truck and holds five times more than the truck.


What kinds of reasons?


Well, here’s an illustrated guide that shows some of the ways our customers use our unique MINI Dumpster rental:


5 Reasons For Dumpster Rental

As you can see, there can be a wide variety of projects and situations that could call for a rental dumpster on site that allows you to “stage” your junk, waste, and debris for up to three days. 


Our MINI Dumpster comes equipped with polycarbonate wheels that prevent scouring of concrete driveways and sidewalks, for easy-to-open doors for quick and safe loading, and an impressive load capacity of up to twelve cubic yards. 


How much is that?


Well, for a visual, imagine five rows of mini-refrigerators lined up seven units long – and another five rows stacked on top of them. That’s 70 mini-refrigerators! The MINI Dumpster can hold all those and still have some room to spare.

A Great Way to Get Rid of All Your Junk – On Your Schedule

So, if like we suggested at the start here, you find yourself working on a project that is going to take several days to complete, it’s quite likely that you’ll be creating trash, waste, and debris off and on throughout those days.

And you might find out very quickly that simply “staging” your junk or debris in a pile (or piles) on your driveway, patio, or lawn is not only messy but can be a hazard


Imagine several days’ worth of junk, debris, and trash sitting in your front yard or driveway, waiting until you have the time and means to haul it all away. Not only is it unsightly, but it’s probably not safe, either, especially if you have children or pets running around. 

Imagine instead how great it would be to have a handy, residential sized dumpster rental conveniently parked just outside your garage door. With one of these convenient roll-off dumpsters available for two or three days you could simply toss things into it whenever you come across them.

Some junk today, more trash tomorrow, and maybe lots of debris the day after that.

This is just one of the several reasons why having one of our user-friendly and roomy MINI Dumpster rentals can be the perfect thing for your big cleanout or cleanup project.

The good news is that you can have one delivered right to your home with just one phone call. 

And should you find that you end up needing the dumpster for more than three days, we also provide five and seven day rental agreements, as well.

When You Need Additional DC Trash Pickup

This Blog Was Updated in June of 2022

Trash Removal Junk King DC


Here’s a cool factoid for you: In 2018, the private companies handled 302,000 tons of solid waste from Washington DC, more than twice what the Department of Public Works’ trucks handled.


So, it appears that we’ve been generating over 450,000 tons of trash, waste, garbage, and rubbish each year for a while now.


Oh, and as a side note, the District of Columbia has no landfills. Every ton of trash picked up in DC proper is hauled to one of two waste transfer stations and then hauled to an incinerator in Lorton, Virginia.

It’s a bit better for communities and residents in Prince George’s County, fortunately. The county provides regular residential trash pickup services for about 164,000 households. And they have the Brown Station Road Landfill for disposing of whatever isn’t recycled – or incinerated.


But getting them to pick up bulky trash items or excess trash can be a problem – and even impossible at times.


This is why Junk King Washington DC specializes in excess and bulky trash removal.

Book a Touchless Appointment Today!


When Your Trash Gets to Be More than You Bargained For


If you are in or near DC, trash pickup probably isn’t something you give much thought to. Except maybe on garbage days when you get to work and realize you forgot to put your cans out!


Then there’s the occasional overloaded trash bin pile that you hope will stay together long enough for it to actually end up in the truck when it gets picked up. But, for most of us in DC, trash pickup is not something we concern ourselves with.


Until we find ourselves with way too much trash for the bins we have. Or it’s trash items that are too large and bulky for the bins. Then we definitely are thinking about it. Especially when the air is freezing, the snow is falling, and roads are icing, and we don’t have a vehicle suitable for hauling our own trash!


We get it.


The good news is that you have a great option for your trash pickup dilemma. And it is a reliable and affordable option, as well.


At Junk King Washington DC we’ve been removing, hauling, and disposing of trash, junk, and debris in the Capital region for many years now and we know trash. And just about everything there is to know about trash removal and disposal.


So, excess trash, bulky trash, or just plain too much trash – we can handle it for you.

A Promising Future for a Dismal Past – Recycling Trash in DC


Like we said, we know trash.


For starters, not all trash and junk has to be landfilled or incinerated. In fact, most of it can be recycled or even reused, if one knows how to go about it. And we do – extremely well.


Junk King Washington DC, like their corporate partner, was founded on the premise of being green, environmentally friendly, and a recycling-based junk removal service. And we practice that premise daily by recycling up to 60 percent of everything we collect to keep landfills down and communities clean.


Unfortunately, the Washington DC area has not been exceptionally “green” in this arena historically. Which is not to say that the diversion of reusable waste and recycling are something new to the Capitol.


According to one author,


“In the early years of the 20th Century low-income girls and women were hired to pick through garbage on sorting tables to recover materials. In the more recent past, recycling of newspapers and metals was a key fundraising tool for community organizations in the District.”


In the early years of the 20th Century, low-income girls and women were hired to pick through garbage on sorting tables to recover materials. Later on, commercial recycling was sustained by ‘scrappies’ or ‘junk yards’ in the city even as they were scaled down from their heyday during WWII.


However, back in the day, most everything else ended up in what we would today call a “landfill” known as the Kenilworth Dump.


“The Kenilworth Dump was created by the city adjacent to the Kenilworth neighborhood in Northeast DC in the early 1940s as the city’s population boomed during World War II. The Dump was a dump. Despite widespread complaints from the surrounding neighborhood, garbage was tipped and burned in the open.”


That facility was thankfully shut down in the late 1960s and a fancy, new landfill was built on the site which served DC residents and others for another ten years or so.


In the last five years, the city has made significant progress in developing a modern waste and recycling system that aims to reduce the waste stream by 80 percent by 2030. The current residential recycling rate is close to 30 percent after having been around 20 percent for many years.


And Junk King Washington DC is proud to have contributed to that improvement and hitting the goals set for 2030.

When You Need Junk Removed from Your Home


Perhaps what Junk King is best known for is our stellar residential junk removal and hauling. We’ve been at it since our founding back in the 2005. And Junk King Washington DC has been expertly and efficiently helping homeowners, renters, landlords, and property owners throughout the Capital region with residential junk removal.


From common household junk removal to whole house cleanouts to foreclosure cleanouts, when it comes to getting rid of junk, rubbish, and debris from homes, we’ve done it all!


And the size and quantity of the junk is not a problem for Junk King either. We can remove old appliances, large furniture pieces, and even piles of residential construction debris. If you’ve got large piles of junk because you’re doing a major cleaning or just haven’t gotten rid of stuff for years, that’s not a problem for the pros at Junk King.


Of course, there are the occasional hoarders, as well. While these projects may require a few trips or multiple trucks with multiple crew members to take care of it all, hoarder cleanouts is on our list of things we do.

The bottom line here is that when it comes to residential junk removal services, Junk King is the DC junk removal firm of choice. We are much more than a typical junk collection and junk hauling company. Our highly trained, friendly, and courteous junk haulers are also “green” junk removal specialists.


In other words, when our crews come to your home or property, they load all the junk and trash items with a strategic approach to facilitate sorting later. This sorting is implemented to recover as much of the recyclable and reusable “junk” materials as possible.


In fact, we regularly successfully recycle 60 percent or more of everything we pick up from our customers.



Junk King Washington DC – The Things We Can Take for You

Junk King Junk Removal


When it comes to listing all the things that we can pick up and remove for you, it might be easier to give you a list of what we can’t take!


In fact, about the only things we cannot legally pick up and haul away are household hazardous materials. According to the EPA, these are simply leftover household products that can catch fire, react, or explode under certain circumstances, or that are corrosive or toxic.


Fortunately, there are local resources for managing the drop off and disposal of these types of items.


But, getting back to what we DO take on a daily basis, our expert junk removal teams are proficient at safely removing and loading old household furniture items, including bed frames and even mattresses. We regularly haul away old televisions, computer monitors, and a wide variety of other electronic waste, or e-waste, items.


Got big stuff? We take that, too!


Old hot tubs, broken down appliances including large chest freezers and refrigerators, air conditioning units that don’t condition air any longer… you name it, we’ve likely removed it.


When it comes to clearing out stuff from the insides of homes and residential properties, we are the pros here in the DC region. We help with full-house cleanouts, rental property cleanouts, and even those unfortunate occasions when foreclosure cleanouts are required.


Heck, we even take excess trash and garbage from homes, if needed. And we also do outdoor junk…


Many times, homeowners, property owners, or renters will find themselves with excessive amounts of yard waste, for example. No worries – we can take that. At other times, there may be a large home renovation or even remodeling project underway and the debris is overwhelming. Not a problem – we do construction waste removal on a regular basis.



Junk King Washington DC – We Work Where You Work


While Junk King may be well-known for our residential junk removal services, business owners and managers know us for our superior commercial junk removal services, as well.


An unavoidable reality in the world of business – any kind of business – is that commercial enterprises not only generate profit, but they also generate junk. And depending on the nature and size of the company, their junk removal needs may be an occasional, one-off project once or twice a year.


On the other end of the commercial junk removal spectrum, however, there are many businesses that need junk removal on a regular basis. And it is these companies that have learned that setting up a national account with easy payment plans is a far more cost-effective approach to commercial junk removal.


And why is that?


Because there are really only two options for commercial junk removal:


  • Your staff does it, or
  • You outsource it


While some owners or managers may be tempted to think that the “DIY” approach will save money, they forget that it takes employee time to load and transport company junk to a suitable facility for disposal. Then it has to be unloaded and those employees must return a borrowed or rented truck, and then get back to their workplace.


And there is the “opportunity cost” of employees hauling and disposing of junk and not doing the work they are paid to do. That loss of productivity costs money.


The good news is that partnering with Junk King means savings and efficient junk removal when you need it.

Commercial Junk Removal – Junk King Can Take It

junk removal gsa contracts in washington dc


So, what do we remove?


We can haul away old office furniture, unwanted commercial equipment, and a variety of commercial scrap materials. In addition, we are great with construction debris removal.


Relocating your offices? Oftentimes moving a business can not only mean investing in new furniture, but also new computer systems and workstations. So, what do you do with all the old, unwanted items and junk?


Selling them is a possibility, but that takes time and effort you may not be able to invest. Same with donating.


In fact, the better option in many cases is to have a professional commercial junk removal firm simply take it all of your hands for you. And when you call on Junk King to do that, you can rest assured that anything that is reusable will be donated and as much of the rest as possible will be recycled.


For real estate professionals, property management firms, and other property managers such as managers of storage facilities, we can be called on for a variety of cleanout needs.


We routinely carry out property management cleanouts, foreclosure cleanouts, and even storage facility cleanouts.


So, the bottom line here is simple: if you’ve got and don’t want it, we can take it. Simple as that!
