Trashing Something too Big for the Bin?

Benefits of Hiring a Junk Removal Company

While decluttering small items may still feel like a chore, at least it’s easy to fill boxes and bags to get rid of it. However, sometimes the items you want gone won’t fit in a standard storage box, bag, or trash can. Then what do you do? Hire a pro. Here are some benefits of calling the right company for large item junk removal.

Items Not Fit for the Trash Bin

Have an old sofa, broken refrigerator, or a mountain of construction debris? You could try to put these items out on the curb, but some local authorities won’t take it and they may even fine you. Getting rid of large items can be a challenging process. It can also be easy when you call the right junk removal company. Some items banned from conventional trash collection include:

  • Hazardous materials. Batteries, paint, and pesticide all contain toxic substances that can contaminate soil and water supplies. There are designated centers that deal with proper disposal.
  • Electronic waste. TVs, computers, and other electronic devices contain heavy metals and toxic components. There are specialized e-waste recycling centers and other take-back programs that responsibly dispose of these items.
  • Large appliances. Refrigerators, air conditioners, and ovens contain electronic components, metals, and some harmful refrigerants that need to be recycled or safely disposed.
  • Furniture. Some upholstery is treated with fire retardants that can be harmful if not disposed of properly.
  • Automotive products. Oil, tires, and car batteries can release harmful chemicals and need to go to designated recycling centers for disposal.
  • Propane tanks. These large and potentially explosive items need to be returned to suppliers.

Not only are some of these items too large to fit in a traditional trash can, but the harmful effects of improper disposal can lead to a greater negative impact on your health and the environment. This is why it’s best to contact a professional who knows the safe and efficient way to deal with these items.
