Disposal and service rates

Our service fees are competitive and simple. However, we place our focus more on quality of service, than on having the lowest rates.

Cost of disposing of single items

The rate for disposing single items, such as a couch, mattress, or a dresser, is in the area of $90. Each additional item will be disposed of with a 50% discount. Having more than few items, moves the rates into a different way of calculating total service cost.

Large Volume pick up Rates

Larger volumes of junk is calculated by how much volume is taken by the items in a 10 cubic yard truck. A cubic yard is 3 feet by 3 feet by 3 feet. An average size pickup truck is about 2-3 cubic yards. Therefore, each of our trucks, can take as much garbage, as 3 pickup trucks.

As a general rule, each cubic yard cost $45-$55. Most of our clients fill up our truck close to the half mark, which brings the cost to about $200-$250.
