What is a reasonable cost to demo a bathroom (7'x8') and haul away junk?

I know that I'm not the only remodeler that uses a lot of area protection--

People like their houses-that's why they called---the place better be clean as humanly possible while we work--
Cleanliness is next to Godliness.

Being clean is what gets the referrals--That poster with the messy HVAC crew----You think he will be giving that company a good referral?

There are plenty of other contractors that do respect the homeowners property--
I know of one high end remodeler that brings in a maid service at the end of the job----

His prices are quite high---however,he is still working when others are not--Mike--

Not sure about where you are, but here you can buy a "Dumpster bag" at the hardware store. I think hauling it off is included in the price.

Demo'ing yourself sounds like fun to me. Buy yourself a new Sawzall and a few crow bars. Go at it. Don't forget to turn off the water and electricity first!

When we demo'ed our deck, we cut the boards to 4 feet long with the Sawzall and hauled them to the curb. A local grading company was slow, and didn't mind hauling everything to the dump in one of their small dump trucks. It seems like we paid them a couple hundred bucks.

Don't we use chain saws to demolish decks?

A sheetrock wall with tiles, gutted to the walls, with all nails pulled and the floor removed to the subflooring, on Long Island would run about $600.00.
