Carpet Removal & Responsible Disposal

There is no question that removing carpet is a labor-intensive job. Even so, most homeowners are willing to do it when it means replacing it with new, more attractive carpet, tiles, or a wood finish. Then they face an even bigger problem of what to do with the carpet they have just spent hours cutting and pulling from the floor of one of the rooms in their home.

If you can relate to this dilemma, we have good news for you. EZ Junk Hauling will pick up your old carpet and deliver it to a recycling center or to an organization that helps people in need if the condition is suitable. Sending any old items to the landfill is always the last resort. We can even tear out the old carpet for you if that is a chore you would prefer to avoid. As if that wasn’t enough, we also remove your carpet padding and return all furniture to its original position.

Most Carpet is Highly Recyclable

Like most of your peers, you care about the impact your choices have on the environment and preservation of our natural resources. This is as true when purchasing new carpet and getting rid of old carpet as it is any other time. EZ Junk Hauling understands and shares your commitment. We are also happy to let you know that carpet is one of the easier household items to recycle because it contains large amounts of plastic fibers.

If no charitable organization has use for the carpet, we will make sure that it goes on to serve many other useful purposes by delivering it to a local recycling center assuming the carpet the condition allows for it. We are far more likely to drop your carpet off at a recycling center since many charities require carpet to be new or at least intact before accepting it.

Avoid Placing Your Old Carpet in a Container for Trash Pick-Up

Due to its bulky size, most municipalities do not allow trash collectors to accept old carpet placed in a trash bin. If you prefer to throw it away, you will need to wait until your local government establishes a specific day for picking up bulk trash items. You do have the option of renting a roll-off dumpster and loading all unwanted carpet into it at the same time. One benefit of doing this is that you can dispose of tack strips and carpet padding at the same time. After completing this step, you would need to deliver the full dumpster to the dump yourself.

Consider Hiring a Professional if You Have Never Removed Carpet

Removing existing carpet is a long, involved process that requires several specific tools. As mentioned above, it’s also labor-intensive. Why do the job yourself when the team at EZ Junk Hauling has so much experience with carpet removal? We make it as simple as possible for you by removing your old carpet and hauling it away immediately so you never need to think about it again.
