Dumpster Service and Garbage Collection

While most homeowners can take care of basic trash disposal on their own, large jobs, such cleaning out your basement or renovating your bathroom, require a more complex process.

20 things to throw away
Organization - Home & Garage

Looking to get your home organized? Here's a list of 20 things to get rid of quickly.

We've all been there. Even the nicest of neighbors can have some pretty annoying habits.

Before you toss it, check the label. Hazardous items — like batteries and ink cartridges — should be disposed safely, which doesn't mean at the curb!

Angie's Answers

I second the original question (still unanswered). Speaking as someone who logged in today to try to find an attorney, I see this category as one that's exactly what I have my Angie's List membership for:

1. It's important that I find a good one
2. I'm not an expert enough to know myself who is a good one
3. The industry is full of advertisements and misinformation
4. I wish I knew what experiences other people have had

I don't care about lawns--I planted mine in clover and don't have to mow it. When I do need to mow I use a rotary Fiskars mower, which is great--or a scythe. That's right--a scythe (the European type, which is smaller, and it's very good exercise). Gas-powered mowers, chemical fertilizers and weed killers--all nasty stuff that gets into everyone's air, soil, and water. I'm sure my neighbor doesn't like my wildflowers, semi-wild pockets of fruit bushes, and unmown areas and yes, dandelions (I have 10 acres) but that's too bad. It's better habitat for wildlife, especially the pollinators on which our food supply depends. I think this obsession with the Great American Lawn is a waste of time and resources. Plant some food instead.

I'm not sure Angie et. al. want you to have a complete answer to this question. By re-subscribing at the Indiana State Fair in 2012, I think I paid $20.00 per year for a multi- year subscription. Maybe even less. At the other extreme--and I hope my memory isn't faulty about this--I think the price, for my area, for ONE year was an outrageous $70.00. And they debited me automatically without warning. I had to opt out of that automatic charge. I like Angie's List, but if some of the companies they monitor behaved the way they do in this respect, they'd be on some sort of Pages of Unhappiness. I'll be interested to see if this comment gets published or censored out of existence.

That's very difficult to answer without seeing the house. As one poster said, the prep is the most important part. On newer homes that don't have a lot of peeling paint, the prep can be very minimal even as low as a couple or a few hundred dollars for the prep labor.

On a 100 year old home with 12 coats of peeling paint on it, then the prep costs can be very high and can easily exceed 50% of the job's labor cost.

A 2100 sq ft two story home could easily cost $1000 just for the labor to prep for the paint job. That number could climb too. Throw in lots of caullking  or window glazing, and you could be talking a couple or a few hundred dollars more for labor.

Painting that home with one coat of paint and a different color on the trim could run roughly $1000 or more just for labor. Add a second coat  and that could cost close to another $1000 for labor.

For paint, you may need 20 gallons of paint. You can pay from $30-$70 for a gallon of good quality exterior paint. The manufacturer of the paint should be specified in any painting contract. Otherwise, the contractor could bid at a Sherwin-Williams $60 per gallon paint and then paint the house with $35 Valspar and pocket the difference. $25 dollars per gallon times 20 gallons? That's a pretty penny too.

That was the long answer to your question. The short answer is $2000 to $4000 and up, depending upon the amount of prep, the number of coats, the amount of trim, and the paint used.


You have to put your self in the shoes of a business that is in business to turn a profit of some sort. All businesses have different overhead which in turn decides what their bottom line would be on their services. I personally would not go with an unlicensed professional for this type of install. You are messing with gas, venting issues, electrical wiring{electric water heater} and updated code issues such as a drain pan and tempature and relief drain lines for heaters that currently do not have them. I do agree that there are some companies that are way out of line for their installs but most of these companies are the really big companies that have very high overheads  I would assume. Tank type water heaters have changed over the last several years and with these safety changes come bigger prices. The price of steel thanks to China is skyrocketing and tank type water heaters are made of steel. Most wholesale plumbing supply companies cannot match what the big box stores are selling at retail to consumers. I happen to think from research that heaters such as Rheem, Bradford White and AOSmith who have been in business forever make a better product than what you can buy in the big box outlets. You also have to take in consideration the location of the water heater that is being replaced. Is it in the house, basement, garage or attic. Most 40 and 50 gallon water heaters that are purchased in a plumbing wholesale store in Texas cost between 300-340 for a 6 year warranty heater with 6 year on parts and tank. Speaking of warranty. Most big box companies will take a least 24 hours to a week to get your warranty problem taken care of. Most reputable plumbing companies will give same day service if they installed the heater.

So lets break down a typical install at cost to a licensed plumber in Texas

Heater: $315, water shut off $6.50, water flex lines or unions to code $20, gas flex line and cut off to code $12, misc fittings $15, Total $368.50 Lets add a 35% profit which is some what low  for a business $129, Total 497.50

This doesnt  include permits, pan and drain or any venting issues. The vent must go from the heater to the outside of roof using double wall vent.

Cost of permit on average $60

Most plumbing companies allow for 3 hours of time for a water heater. This includes picking the new one up. Delivering out to house. Draining and removing old water heater. Hauling off old heater. Installing new heater up to code. Going down to city and pulling permit.

Average Labor charges for heater installs $400

That would make this install run without extras on any code issues $957.50

I just had a 50 gallon gas water heater installed in my house for $1200 but I needed a pan installed. I used a licensed plumber.




Todd said it best.

An itemized list / cost breakdown, more often than not is used against the contractor when it is shared with other builders who will then beat it.

Good contractors use good people, and good people cost more.  Just the cost of having the appropriate insurance / bond can be the difference between winning a job or losing it ot a 'lower bid'.

It is the rule of three; there is Good, Cheap and Fast.  You can have any two:  Good and Cheap, won't be Fast; Good and Fast, won't be Cheap;  Cheap and Fast, won't be Good!

When comparing bids, it isn't the cheapest or the 'nicest' person you should select.   You should understand why there is a large price difference (it shows there are gaps in your design program or what you have asked for specifically, which means there may be arguments later).  If most of the bids are in line, and one is way high or way low,  you want to know why before dismissing or selecting them.

A price-only decision almost always costs more in the long run. 

Good luck!

Dumpster Rental reviews in Philadelphia


They arrived on schedule. Everyone was really nice and polite. They worked very hard in extremely hot conditions. The job was done beyond my expectations. I will use them again in the future. My neighbors liked what they did, and are scheduling a pick-up.

The service was great. Within two hours of placing a call to get an estimate 2 men showed up to do the job. They removed an old futon, 2 chairs, tv stand, old hardwood flooring, old car rims, pulled up old carpet, and cleaned out other miscellaneous junk that had accumulated in my basement over the past 13 years. After removing everything they cleaned ...More up all remaining debris in the basement. The basement hasn't looked that good in 13 years. I would recommend them to anyone. They have reasonable prices and the guys are very professional.
- Frank S.

Everything went well except that I had a coupon through Angies List and the office people and the driver were confused about it and I had to make multiple phone calls to clear it up. Other than that, I was totally satisfied.
- James G.

Hello. About a month ago I ordered a dumster from ! The order was taken pretty quick! Employment,customer service and driver was really nice! Im located in Media, PA! Its about 30 miles away from them! They still delivered dumpster really fast and right on time, and the day i wanted. They have really cheap prices and good offers! ...More Even in Media, they still beat the prices from everybody else in PA! Its the cheapest,bestest Dumster Compony, I've ever heard,meet and deal with! No negative, no problems! Only POSITIVE. Out of 10 scale i will give them 10! A+ for the work they do!
- Yaroslav K.

Very easy to place request for service through website. They were quick to respond punctual and smart enough to bring 3 small trucks rather than one big one because the looked up ahead that I live on a small street. They left a little bit of a mess on my floor but I was happy to vaccuum because they were so punctual and speedy. I thought the price would ...More be higher because it was hard for me to estimate the volume of how much I had so I think that $155 was reasonable. I'm sure I could have found a cheaper way to do it but am also sure I could not have found a faster and easier way for me so it was worth the price.
- Martin B.

I called them for price comparison for dumpster service for a yard/cellar/ general house clean-up. After speaking with them, and setting a delivery time up, they were prompt with their delivery, delivered and set up the unit on site, and picked it up right on time. They are an excellent company to deal with, I would highly recommend them!
- Phyllis S.

They were very responsive. They had a minor issue one day with dumpsters still out and wanted to see if I could wait a day. By the time I called them back they had already delivered the dumpster. They kept in touch to see when I was ready to have the dumpster taken away. Very friendly and easy to work with. I would gladly use them again.
- Bryan A.

I called late on a Thursday afternoon. I talked to a woman who helped me choose the correct dumpster size. I wanted the dumpster option - rather than hauling - because I was ripping out my basement and was not sure how long that would take. The dumpster was delivered Monday and picked up the next day. Very good service.
