Renting a dumpster and loading it yourself could cost less money than a junk removal service but you will need to check with your township/borough to see if you need to apply for a permit for the dumpster rental. The customer is responsible for any permit fees. The dumpster rentals come with usually 1 week rental. If you need it longer, just ask. With the dumpster you can sort and load at your leisure and if you don’t have to do it all at once. Each dumpster will come with a tonnage capacity and if you exceed it, you will be required to pay an additional fee per ton. Example: a 10 cubic yard dumpster rental includes a 2 ton (4000lbs) weigh limit, if you have a lot of heavy material loaded in the dumpster and it weighs more than 2 tons, you will be charged a fee per ton for the overage. Also, clearing and moving the junk, you have a high risk of injury. Cuts, bruises, and back strains are just some of the injuries you may encounter. You will be required to sort the area, carry the junk items to the dumpster and fill the dumpster. This can be very time consuming especially if you are doing it alone.
