The Benefits of a Dumpster Bag and When You Should Use One

The Benefits of a Dumpster Bag and When You Should Use One

When it comes to having your household or office junk removed, there are several options available to you.

Junk removal is a common need for homeowners, tenants, property owners, and businesses. And the size, type, and quantity of junk are usually the determining factors of exactly how to have the junk removed. Of course, time and budget restraints come into play, as well.

For example, if you are pressed for time and need to have your junk removed as soon as possible, hiring a professional junk removal service is usually the best option for junk removal.

If, on the other hand, you have a small budget or will be hard-pressed to pay for professional junk removal services, then you may have to haul junk away yourself.

The good news is that there are affordable options when it comes to junk pick up, removal, and disposal.

Professional Junk Removal: When You Want It Done Right, Fast, and Easy

In most junk removal scenarios, nothing beats having a professional junk removal service show up and load your junk items and materials for you.

Hiring a firm like Junk King means having your junk – no matter what it is – quickly and efficiently picked up, loaded, and hauled away.

And if you’re using Junk King, you’ll know that it will be done professionally and affordably by a crew of highly trained junk haulers. In addition, we make it our mission to sort and recycle as much of your junk as possible. Up to 60 percent or more of it, in fact.

Along with the speed, ease, and convenience, making use of professional junk removal means no heavy lifting and loading for you. Or for your brother-in-law or your employees. It also means no risk of injuring yourself with heavy objects like old appliances or used furniture.

While the cost involved may be a bit more than if you were to do it all yourself, this is not always the case, nor does it take into account the value of your own time along with the wear and tear on your own vehicle.

But there is always the DIY approach for junk pick up…

Do It Yourself Junk Removal: When You Want to Do It on Your Schedule

We do live in a DIY culture here in America.

In fact, the concept of “do-it-yourself” is actually a social and cultural movement that began sweeping the nation here in the U.S. as well as in the United Kingdom back in the 1950s. The magazine Business Week’s issue of June 2nd, 1952, even proclaimed the 1950’s, “The age of do-it-yourself.”

According to one source, he only two past times more popular than do-it-yourself in the 1950s were reading and watching television.

“Handyman- or Do-it-Yourself-ism reached a fever-pitch in the 1950’s. The craze even went so far as to create traveling road shows, and do-it-yourself conventions that would travel from town to town.  Men could revel in the newest tool; meet others like themselves and swap workshop stories.”

When it comes to “do-it-yourself” junk removal, homeowners and others have a few choices, one of those being a rental dumpster.

While business owners and contractors may be accustomed to renting roll-off dumpsters for junk and debris removal, the average homeowner or renter may not realize that they, too, can rent a dumpster.

For example, at Junk King Washington DC, we offer customers our MINI Dumpster rentals that are designed to fit easily in a typical driveway – and do so without gouging or damaging it. In addition, our self-service rental dumpsters are easy to access and load, and only take up the space that a large pickup truck might.

In addition, the Junk King MINI Dumpster can hold up to 12-cubic yards of junk – almost 5 pickup truck bed loads!

But it does require booking a rental dumpster, having it delivered and placed on your property, and – once it’s loaded – waiting for a team to come and pick it up and haul it away. Along with all your junk.

There is, however, another DIY option that doesn’t involve using your own vehicle…

Do It Yourself Junk Removal: A Different Approach to Dumpster Rentals

Sometimes you’ve got junk you need to clean up and get rid of, but it won’t fit in your pickup truck. Or, more likely, you don’t own one.

It’s far more than you’d ever fit inside your residential trash bin and recycling bin, but not quite enough to justify calling a junk removal service with their large junk trucks. In fact, you may be figuring that the volume of junk isn’t even enough to warrant a steel, roll-off dumpster rental like Junk King’s MINI Dumpster.

So, what can you do? How about a dumpster bag?

Making use of a dumpster bag rental can be the perfect solution for those large junk removal jobs that are not so large as to need a junk truck or large metal dumpster.

And what kind of junk removal jobs could that be?

Typical examples include cleaning jobs like decluttering a few rooms in your home or place of work, a large yard or landscaping project, or even a small renovation job that results in far more debris than you can place inside your normal curbside trash collection bins.

A waste removal dumpster bag is a good option in those scenarios.

If the total quantity of junk, trash, or debris doesn’t exceed the weight and volume capacity of the dumpster bag, then these handy and easy-to-load debris bags can be the right way to go.

Some of the junk removal needs that are a good fit for a dumpster bag rental include:

  • Decluttering a few rooms in your home or workplace
  • Landscaping debris or concrete rubble, dirt, or sod
  • Renovation debris like old tile or small amounts of drywall
  • Clearing unwanted equipment and junk from tool or garden sheds
  • Disposing of old carpeting or flooring from a small room

Typically, a dumpster bag rental will hold about 3 cubic yards of debris with a 3,300-pound weight limit. So, keep this in mind when estimating how much junk you have, or will have, to determine if this is a good time to use a dumpster bag.
