    We are moving into our new home next month. For that, I was removing all the unwanted items from my home. I don't want to mess my new home. My parents had passed away last year and their room was not touched since then. While cleaning out my parents unit, its full of old building materials, mostly wood (2x4's, old doors, desks). I have a little budget problem now to use a disposal service, so I am wondering if there is like a city dump where I can haul the stuff little by little in my SUV, and if there is, does it cost anything? there is a lot of stuff so it will take me a while, but if there is a place I can dump it, its the only option I have now.
    Also if there is a construction waste disposal service that can cost me a little then please do inform me

    First call your city and see if there is a dump near by

    Our city let’s us do two dumps a year for free

    Than call your trash pick up people
    They sometimes will do oversize or large pile pickups maybe free maybe some cost, just pile it at the curb

    Also ask them what size roll off dumpsters they have and cost, just drop it fill it and done

    See if there are used construction material sales, they sale used stuff from places like cabinets doors etc

    Lastly if you have the time

    Just put some stuff at the curb especially metal and the scrappers will come by and pick what they need

    Hire a teenager with a truck and have them haul it, just do not have any identifiers on it, in case the dump it somewhere they are not supposed to

    Just posted on Craigslist and free for the taking! I'm betting you get tons of calls.
