Kind of totally forgot about the whole construction debris issue. So after trying to set up with a local hauler where they will only give you a quote once they see what you have to get rid of, we had to get creative. Enter the Bagster Dumpster in a Bag .
It got good reviews on Home Depot.com so I was all for it. It's $30 for the bag there but if we had more time, we would've ordered it through the link at Amazon above since it's under $27 there. Every buck counts, yo. So we set it up in front of the garage and put the heaviest items on the bottom as it instructs being careful to make sure the straps the crane needs to lift it are on the outside.
We drug that unwieldy beast back into the garage because we didn't trust that other people wouldn't dump their own crap in there overnight and cause us issues. So we filled it up, scheduled our appointment and we'll hopefully get it all out of our hair by the end of the day.
Of course it figures, they scheduled to paint the outside of our house today as well so hopefully everyone will play nice and we can get this taken care of.
How much is it to haul away? Well, in our area, it's $119 (RetailMeNot has a $5 off coupon which I used. Not much again, every buck counts) So figure $150 for haul away but if you don't have a better option like us then it is something you'll need to figure into your budget. (I wish we'd even entertained the idea of haul away)
We do have a back up option with bulk pick up for the carpet rolls but getting rid of the flooring would be interesting. But please keep your fingers crossed there are no issues. I'll update tomorrow! :-)
Do you budget for haul away on home projects or do you totally forget until your garage is clogged up?
