How to Get rid of Backyard Waste

How to Get Rid of Backyard Waste

You could say it's that time of year again, but most of us with yards know that dealing with yard waste is a year-round operation that knows no season. Whether it is the newly fallen leaves of Autumn or the thickets and deadfall to clean up in the Spring when everything starts greening up again, your yard is constantly producing waste. You have a few options, and most of them involve getting a rake, some sturdy gloves, and a few weekends when you would rather be doing anything but getting rid of your backyard waste.

Problems with backyard waste disposal

Doing work on your backyard brings up all sorts of problems when it comes to waste disposal. Here are just a few to consider: 

Your regular trash service might not take extra bags: 

Your trash service is likely limited to just whatever can be fit into your bin, unless they are also counting the number of bags outside of your bin, which can be $5 to $10 per bag depending on your service. If you have 23 bags of leaves, sticks, and other debris, this is going to be a very expensive trash run. If they take it at all.

Dumpsters are big and expensive

Ordering a dumpster is very expensive and comes with a whole other set of problems on its own. Dumpsters take up a lot of space on your property, and can sit there for up to 10 days before the waste disposal company comes by to get them. Not only do dumpsters attract all sorts of critters such as raccoons, possums, and even bears, but they might also attract the attention of your HOA, who might incur penalties for having a dumpster on your property for too long.

Collapsible dumpster bags have multiple fees: 

You might have seen these in your neighborhood, especially if someone is doing renovations. Collapsible dumpster bags, such as the WM bagster, can cost just as much as junk removal between the cost of the bag and the separate price of the pickup service. What's worse is you have to do all the labor yourself.

Like a dumpster, they will sit in your driveway for days, invited four-legged and two-legged scavengers alike.

Yard waste removal priced to save you time and money

Junk removal services are priced by volume, which means that we charge you based on how much room in our trucks your backyard waste is going to take up.  Unlike a dumpster or a bag system, you are paying only for the volume used, and not the whole system, which could be a considerable difference in savings.  With free estimates, we won't move anything until you are quoted a price we stick to, so there won't be any surprises when it comes to paying the bill.
