FAQs

Do you only transport trash?

No. We’ve removed everything from 196 golf cart tires and a phone booth from 1992, to 15,000+lbs of office cubicles (we donated or recycled 90% of them), and anything else you can imagine. The only stuff we don’t take are hazardous materials.

Is there anything you DON’T take?

We do not take oil, antifreeze, paint, fluorescent bulbs (including the curly CFL’s), propane tanks, asbestos, cleaning chemicals (including Windex and 409), medications, or lawn and garden chemicals. If you need to dispose of hazardous materials or waste, contact your local solid waste department for more information.

Do you take couches? Old mattresses?

Yes, we take couches and old mattresses, along with an assortment of other furniture. See what else we take here.

Do you take paint?

No, we do not take paint, paint thinners, stains, or paint strippers. We also cannot take any brushes or rollers that have touched these materials as they are flammable and poisonous.

Do you do electronics recycling?

Yes, we recycle electronics. We call it E-cycling. We’ll recycle your televisions, computers, computer monitors, laptop computers, tablets, e-readers, and more.

What do you mean when you say you recycle?

Our goal is responsible disposal. We recycle finished and unfinished wood products, yard waste, ferrous and non-ferrous metals, cardboard, and more through the appropriate recycling centers.

Are you licensed and insured?

Yes, our trucks and employees are fully licensed, bonded, and insured. Trash Transporter is registered and has the necessary permits to operate in junk removal.

Why should I get removal instead of a dumpster?

Overall, we’re competitive with dumpster pricing and often cost less, and we do all the work for you. You won’t end up paying for more space than you need, or worse, having too much stuff to fit, when you book a removal with us. You pay for exactly the volume you have and no more. You won’t waste time waiting around for a dumpster to be dropped off and picked up – and even better, you won’t have one sitting around on your property for ages damaging your yard and being a neighborhood eyesore. With our junk removal services, you can simply sit back and relax while we do all the work.

How much does it cost?

Our quote depends on what you’re tossing and how much there is. Once you schedule a free quote, we’ll come by and give you an estimate. Our quote includes everything from labor, to lifting, to post-haul cleanup. You have no obligation to buy after we give you the quote and we never tack on any surprise fees. We also have our Local Guarantee.

What forms of payment do you accept?

We accept all major credit and debit cards, checks, and cash. We offer a money-back guarantee. We know you’ll love working with us. And if you don’t for any reason, let us know and we guarantee you’ll get your money back on the spot.

What are your hours of operation?

We’re open Monday – Friday 8:00 am – 6:00 pm and Saturday and Sunday by appointment.

Can you do the job for me if I’m not there?

For smaller, residential removals, we can take down your card information by phone after you agree to a quote. We will then send you a before and after photo and only run your card after you approve of a job well done.

How far ahead do I need to schedule?

Smaller jobs are easier to book sooner. Larger jobs usually need more lead time. Call us today at (360) 649-2435 or email us to schedule your FREE quote appointment and we’ll let you know how fast we can transport your trash.
