Full Service Junk Removal Price List

Our Service

Seattle Rubbish Removal can load and haul away almost anything that two workers can lift – other than hazardous household waste – and we recycle as much as possible. Check out our junk removal price list, charges and junk removal process below.

How Do We Charge?

For most junk, we charge by volume, i.e. the fraction of a truck we fill according to our Standard Volume Rates. Alternatively, for dense materials like dirt, concrete, bricks, plaster, asphalt shingles, etc., our Dense Materials Rates apply. For a handful of items, Additional charges may apply shown at right. We will inspect your rubbish and give you an estimate before we start work. On everything, disposal and recycling fees are included in the price. Rates factor in up to one hour on site for a two man crew to load. We can fill a truck in that time assuming close access to a pile. Beyond that we bill an hourly rate per worker.
