If you're going to be gutting a house and you are worried about how much money to you have to spend to dispose of everything, there are a few considerations you'll want to make. You want to get all of the items out, without having to pay for the largest dumpster that is available. There are materials in the house that can be reused, there are items that could potentially be recycled, and then some that have no place to land but the dump. Here are a few of the options to explore.
A variety of the materials in the home can be reused, even if the home is going to be torn down to the studs. People could use anything from old wood flooring, to window frames and old bricks or blocks. Have a sale or offer materials for free to have people come in and do a lot of labor for you when they remove the old materials, and you could end up making some money if someone wants to purchase the materials.
Scrap Metal Pick Up
Get the appliances, old plumbing fixtures, metal wiring, aluminum siding and windows, and all other metal fixtures out of the house and have a scrap metal pick up service come to the property to get them. The scrap professionals may be willing to give you cash for the metal that you are providing, or you can take the metal yourself to the scrap yard. This keeps a great deal of materials out of the trash, and conserves a lot of space.
Small Dumpster Rental
Get the smallest dumpster rental possible for the lowest price to dispose of the rest of the items that you have. You can get an actual framed dumpster, or even large trash disposal bags that can fit gallons of trash. Either way, make sure that the trash will be picked up on location so you don't have to take it anywhere.
If you don't want to pay tons to have all of the old materials and debris removed from the house you are ready to renovate, go through all of these options to clear out the inside and to possibly make some extra money. These are just a few of the things that you'll want to try, and you can also list the items on garage sale sites, or put items out on the side of the road with prices.
