How to Get Rid of Your Clutter in Charleston SC

Spring cleaning season is upon us in Charleston. Spring cleaning is typically a scheduled event for most homeowners throughout the region. It provides homeowners a designated time to declutter their home from all the unwanted items. If you find yourself with an entire garage of stuff to get rid of, you will need to assess the best ways of disposing your waste. We'll compare 3 separate ways of addressing your waste disposal and assess the cost, time and convenience of each method. 

Hauling The Trash To the Landfill Yourself

The most economical way of getting rid of your trash is to load it in your vehicle and transport it to the local landfill yourself. This method makes most sense when you're looking to save a few bucks, you've set a few hours aside on the weekend to go to the landfill and have an adequate vehicle of hauling the waste. 

Where you may want to reconsider this waste disposal method is if you don't have a pickup truck or large SUV to haul the waste and you have more than one truck load of trash to haul. The last way you want to spend your weekend is running to and from the landfill. While it is the most inexpensive method, it can really chew up your precious time enjoying the weekend. 

Renting a Dumpster in Charleston

Getting a dumpster rental in Charleston can be a fast and convenient way of getting rid of your clutter during spring cleaning. It's a simple process where you call to arrange a waste container get delivered to your home. The local supplier in Charleston will drop the roll off dumpster in your driveway and then you fill it up with your waste. When you've filled the bin, you call the supplier to pick it up. 

This method is best when you have a house or garage full of trash. You can get up to 8 pickup truck loads of junk into a roll off dumpster. It also can be a rapid-fast waste disposal method; in fact, if you get a roll off dumpster rental delivered to your home on a Friday, you can fill it before the weekend officially starts. 

If money is the deciding factor or you prefer not to do any manual labor then renting a dumpster isn't the best approach for your needs.

Hire a Charleston Junk Removal Company

If you desire a completely hand-free option to getting rid of your trash, hiring a junk removal company will work for you. When you call a local company and schedule your appointment, the local supplier's laborers will come to your home and remove all the junk from your home. This is a great option when you have bulky items like furniture that you won't be able to load into your vehicle or dumpster. 

Hiring a junk removal company won't be the best option for large quantities of trash because you will for the capacity of the supplier's cube van or vehicle. If you are decluttering your entire home, this will get costly. Also, since COVID, collectively, we are less eager to invite strangers into our homes to remove trash despite sanitation protocols. 

Weigh Your Waste Disposal Options

You have a number of ways to get rid of your clutter but the best method will dependent on how your prioritize considerations of time, convenience and money. If money is the deciding factor then you'll want to haul the waste yourself but if you prioritize time and convenience then renting a dumpster or hiring a junk removal company will be your best bet.
