Get Ready For Your Richmond VA Garden Planting

Spring is all about new growth. Even if you didn’t do any planting, you’re sure to see buds blooming everywhere on trees, bushes and lawns. Of course, if you want to get serious about garden planting you’ll need to start by prepping your growing zone. This starts with turning the soil. A new patch of garden requires at least six inches of toiled soil. You can help that soil by adding nutrients. This is the perfect time to spread out compost or mulch. As you dig up the soil, you might stumble upon some roots and rocks. Obviously, those will have to cleared away before the planting can be done. If you can toss them out in your trashcan, great. However, the bigger the pile of rocks, the bigger the need to bring in help. That can be where Junk King steps up to play.

Not only can they haul away all your dug up roots, rocks and sod but they can be a huge benefit when it comes to clearing space.

Don’t put your back at risk; let Junk King handle all the work.

In addition to helping you with your garden planting, Junk King can also make short work of removing all the clutter from your home. You just need to decide what you want removed from your garage, closet, basement or attic and the Junk King team will take it away. They’ll be loading everything onto a huge truck so there won’t be any worry about not having room. In fact, that’s how you’ll be charged for the work. It will be a flat fee based on how much space you junk takes up on the back of the truck. Keep in mind, that the crews make several pickup appointments in a single day. That means they need to pack up that truck tight. That translates into a great rate every time! This is a fee that won’t change after the work is done. In other words, there won’t be any surprise charges.

From helping with your garden planting to decluttering your home, Junk King gets the job done.

Richmond Junk Recycling

It’s going to get easier to handle your household recycling. That’s because the city of Richmond is planning on replacing the small recycle bins with larger 95-gallon cans. This will mean a lot more room for your old soda cans, junk mail, newspapers, magazines and cardboard. By allowing residents to recycle more, the citywide program will actually be more efficient. Over the next ten years, this recycling program could yield the city around $6.5 million in added revenue and reduce carbon emissions by around 143,500 metric tons. Of course, your recycling doesn’t have to stop at the kitchen. You have an opportunity to take care of some major junk recycling when you bring in Junk King to lend a hand.

Feel Safe With Your Richmond Junk Removal Team

There is a new scam making the rounds in the Richmond area. Someone is randomly calling up people and claiming to be a sheriff’s deputy. They go on to say the person who they’re calling has missed jury duty and can now be arrested unless they pay a fine. Of course, that fine has to be wired instantly to that caller’s account. This is a complete fraud that has already snared at least two victims who sent money. Phone scams have been around as long as there have been phones. If anyone calls you out of the blue and asks for personal information or money over the phone, ask to call them back or to talk to a supervisor. Of course, nothing is wrong with hanging up on them.

The Junk Removal Glossary: Eco-Friendly Disposal in Richmond VA

Eco-friendly Disposaladjective – “getting rid of trash, rubbish, junk, debris or waste in a way that is not going to be harmful to the environment.” Synonym – “going green, green policy, carbon footprint reduction.”

There is a lot of discussion about climate change and what it might mean for the future of our environment. One thing is for sure, as the population of the country swells we need to make sure we’re doing a better job with garbage disposal. Many cities are moving towards a zero-waste goal. This would mean that all the garbage that is collected would be recycled, repurposed and reused. Nothing will end up in a landfill. Some of that garbage can actually be turned into energy when it is burned at clean facility. Obviously, it will fall to the garbage collectors to be on the front line of developing eco-friendly disposal policies. A company like Junk King has already been leading that charge since 2005.

1026072_recycle_icon_glossy

The founders of Junk King set out to create a company that provided professional junk hauling services to homeowners and businesses. They wanted to provide a service that they couldn’t find themselves. Nearly ten years later, that idea has spread across 20 states and 60 franchises. The other founding principle was one based on responsible eco-friendly disposal. Junk King’s mandate is to divert as much junk away from landfills as possible. Here in Richmond, the Junk King crews raise to the occasion with their dedication to dropping off junk at recycling centers and charities. Yes, a donation can be considered recycling.

The way that Junk King handles their recycling program is also eco-friendly. At the depot where their trucks are staged, the crews return with their hauls to sort through it all. Pallets are created with materials that will be designated for recycling or donation. Once those pallets are full, they head off to the proper facilities. This way, Junk King isn’t wasting energy making small load drop offs.

This eco-friendly disposal policy also helps with your fee. Because Junk King recycles, they don’t have to pay the hefty dumping charges at a local landfill. Instead of passing those costs onto you, they avoid them all together. That means you’ll be able to get rid of all your junk at a very avoidable rate. If an eco-friendly disposal policy matters to you, then Junk King is the company you want to work with for your junk hauling needs.

 

Zombie Survival Tips From Junk King: Kill the Clutter

If “The Walking Dead” has taught us anything about zombies it is that they are unrelenting when it comes to getting their next meal. How many times have you seen a zombie without legs crawling for a bite? What about all those zombies that have been burnt up in a fire? They’re still walking for dinner. The only way to stop a zombie is to strike them in the head. This makes a solid baseball bat or golf club the weapon of choice. You certainly don’t want to waste bullets when a good swing of a club will do. Ideally, if you have a katana, then you would be set.

zombie-patrol-1440371-m

We also learned that if a zombie bites you on the limb, you can be saved if the limb is quickly dispatched with. That’s where that katana would come in handy. If you’re bitten anywhere else, it’s time to put your affairs in order and say your good-byes. The goal is to stay one step ahead of the zombies. Thankfully, most zombies are of the slow walking variety. When they start running, all bets are off.

As with any type of apocalypse, you want to make sure you’ve got an exit strategy. That first exit could mean getting out of your home before the zombie hordes show up. That’s why you need Junk King. If your home is full of clutter, then you’ll just be stumbling around in the dark looking for canned goods while zombies come knocking at your door. You want a clear path through your basement, garage and living room. Junk King can give you that path!

One call to Junk King will have a team of clutter fighters sent to your home to remove anything that stands between you and a fast exit. While they’re at it, that Junk King crew can also clear out the unwanted items in your closet, attic and basement. Hey, if you’re going to abandon your home to the zombies, you don’t want to leave it a mess.

When it comes to this zombie proofing decluttering, Junk King isn’t going to charge you an arm or a leg (the perfect zombie snack BTW). Instead, you’ll pay a fair price based on how much space your junk will fill up on the back of the truck. It’s always a fair and fast deal with Junk King, the true enemy of the zombie!

Prevent the Zombie Apocalypse in Richmond with Junk Removal

We’re entering into a high zombie alert situation. Between Halloween and the return of “The Walking Dead” zombies are everywhere. Can you survive a zombie attack? First order of business is to determine what kind of zombies you’re dealing with. A Voodoo zombie is an animated corpse that is usually brought back from the dead with a specific mission. If you’re not the target of a Voodoo zombie, you could survive an attack. Even if a Voodoo zombie bites you, it doesn’t mean you’ll turn into a zombie. For that, you need to go to a Voodoo priestess.

zombie-face-1017114-m

The virus-plagued zombies are the ones that can cause the most trauma. These usually break down to two distinct categories: slow walkers and runners. The slow walkers are easy to dispatch. Yes, they can surprise you but a swift blow to the head with a blunt object should do the trick. A running zombie is a bit more challenging to take care. This is why you should wear protective gear at all

times. You know those suits dog trainers wear to avoid getting bit? That would be the way to go.

When the zombie virus starts to spread, you’ll want to have your survival kit standing by. This should be a trunk size package that contains things like first aid supplies, iodine tablets, flashlights, tools, flares, clothes and canned goods. If you can put this trunk on a rolling cart, all the better because you never know when you might have to leave. As it happens, this survival kit can also come in handy during storm evacuations. It’s important to have quick access to your survival kit otherwise, it’s not going to do you much good. If there is a lot of clutter standing between you and your kit, you better get it cleared away with the help of Junk King.

Junk King are the pros when it comes to decluttering a space. The Junk King crew will happily load up anything and everything you want to get rid of. This should leave you a clear path to your survival kit and your holiday decorations and other important stored items.
