Trash removal in Toronto is something that you should not take for granted. Choosing the right trash removal company is a very important task that should not be taken lightly. When you select a trash removal company you should select one that will keep the area clean and neat, and that will also dispose of any refuse in the briefest delay. They should be reliable, timely, cost-effective, and cordial in order to be considered for the job. Here, we discuss some questions that you may want to ask your trash removal team before considering if they are the best candidate for the job.

When Do They Pick-Up Waste?

It is very important to ask them when they will actually provide their pick-up service, as different companies will have different schedules. In your specific case, you may require that they provide their pick-up services only once per week. However, you may be a client that requires a company that will provide their services twice or thrice a week. Everybody’s needs are different, so you need to ask them when and how often they normally provide their trash removal service before determining if they are the right fit for you.

If the company has a fixed schedule that will not work with your home or work schedule then you should start looking for another provider. The best trash removal companies in Toronto will be flexible and will be more than happy to work with your schedule. For instance, they may provide their services outside of your operating hours if it is more convenient for you. Arguably, the aforementioned question is the very first question you should ask a prospective trash removal company, as it is arguably the most important question.

What Type of Units Do They Provide?

Some companies will provide you with dumpsters that you can use to collect and dump your garbage but others may not, or may only do so if you are willing to pay a surcharge. Also, if you decide to use a dumpster, or several dumpsters, to collect your refuse you need to make sure that they will actually fit on your lot.

For instance, some companies may only provide very large dumpsters so they may not fit on or near your property. That’s why it’s important to ask them if they will provide you with dumpsters for free or at a cost, as well as what size options they provide, if applicable.

You may also require recycling bins in addition to garbage bins. If the aforementioned applies to you then you should also ask them if they will also provide you with recycling bins in addition to garbage bins as part of their service package. In sum, it is very important that you are aware of all of the different options and service plans that are available to you before deciding on which trash removal company in Toronto to go with.

Do They Provide Additional Services?

Some clients may have certain times of the year, such as certain seasons, where they will need trash removal services more frequently than others. For instance, you may have more items to recycle during the summer or may have more trash to get rid of during the winter.

In some cases, such as during the holidays, you may need additional services to deal with the extra waste, or an unexpected event, such as an accident or a natural disaster, may require emergency or supplementary trash collection services

Regardless of the occasion or season, it is important to ask the trash removal company if they provide additional trash removal services if needed. Unfortunately, many trash removal companies in Toronto do not offer additional services, although some will provide additional pickup services upon request.

What Items Will They Actually Pick-Up?

What trash items will be deemed eligible for pick-up? Some customers mistakenly assume that a trash removal company will simply pick-up and throw out whatever they leave on the curb but this isn’t necessarily the case. For instance, there are certain items that are illegal for trash removal companies in Toronto to pick-up, as they need to be disposed of using very specific procedures or techniques that are mandated by the relevant governing or regulatory bodies.

As such, while local ordinances will usually dictate what they can and cannot collect, there are some unique company-specific differences that you may not be aware of. It is important to ask them to provide you with a list of what items they will and will not pick-up, and the best companies will have a very short list of non-eligible items.
