throwing stuff away? dumpster?

okay...

I have a few things that I need to throw away (ripped down a screened in porch today) and I think I need a dumpster. Whats the process for this? is one place cheaper then another? Do I need a permit for this? Somebody made mention to me that our village has a spring cleaning day, throw anything you want on the curb and they will pick it up... It's not on our villages public calender, does something like this exist?

Thanks

I would call the village. There may be someone there today, but otherwise you'll have to wait until monday.
Generally you can't use a dumpster unless you've paid for it (e.g, it's at the apartment complex where you rent, or something like that).

BUT, usually you can bring your items to the city dump yourself and as long as you bring a copy of your utility bill (showing that you pay for trash service in that town) you can dump for free. If that's not how your town works, I'd be surprised. Poke around the web some more, or just wait til monday....OR ask a neighbor (maybe one who you've seen doing work on their house, thus probably has dealt with this).

some towns do have an amnesty day(?) throw away as much stuff as you want without additional charges. A way of getting folks to clean up crap around the house to improve the looks of a neighborhood

Go to Elmhurst and dump it on someones front lawn this Wednesday because they have their "bulk" pick up and it doesn't cost them a thing

This is on a town by town basis.

I can tell you that if it was Berwyn, you'd need a permit for a dumpster. You can go get a dumpster through National and it should cost you between 300 and 500 bucks.

Also, ask the village if they have Spring and Fall pickup days. Those garbage days in which you can through out a TON of crap.

this is a problem, this might actually BE a ton of stuff. It's an entire screened in porch. There is a dumpster across the street from me at a school/church, but this stuff will not fit in there...

Yeah, like Mr. Busa said, it will cost you a nice penny to get a company to pick it up for you. Maybe you could try to put a few pieces every week in the dumpster across the street until it's all gone, you know "Prison Break" style.

Just chop it up into really tiny pieces and flush it down your toilet.

Check with whoever picks up your garbage, they will often do a special pickup.

the majority of the stuff is aluminum. do you guys think If I pull that stuff out of the pile and place it on the curb a scrapper will take that? the remainder will fit either in the dumpster at the school across the street and in my garbage

do a search for a metal scrapper in the area, give em a call and they will likely come pick it up, at least the aluminum. Its valuable to them and shouldn't cost you a dime.
