Atlanta Bulk Trash Pickup

Recently the Pine Mountain Trail Association got together for its annual cleanup and by all accounts it was a huge success. It only took a team of 90 volunteers to scour 17 miles of trail to pick up all kinds of trash left behind by some very sloppy people. Among the items discarded were a basketball backstop, toilet tank top, a drive shaft, motorcycle parts and hundreds of bottles and soda cans. Apparently, all of this stuff was just randomly tossed out of cars. Imagine the level of laziness it takes to accomplish that task. Is it possible that some people never pass a garbage can or dumpster in their lives? Instead, they would rather trash up nature. Wouldn’t it be great if we could return all their trash?

When you hear about volunteers coming together for this type of cleanup, you might be inspired to tackle you own junk removal project. Just like the Pine Mountain Trail cleanup, you don’t have to your junk removal on your own. Junk King is standing by to help with any type of bulk trash pickup.

By now, you’ve probably seen the big red Junk King truck once or twice as it makes it rounds around Atlanta. Homeowners and businesses are certainly keeping the Junk King crews busy with all kind of bulk trash pickup project. Simply put, bulk trash is anything that won’t fit in your garbage can. You can’t throw away an old grill or recliner in your trashcan. To get rid of those kinds of items you need to hire Junk King. Since setting up the branch here in Atlanta, this local Junk King crew has managed to cart away tons of unwanted items and that is no exaggeration. Continue reading

Bulk Item Pickup Atlanta-Trash Service or Junk King Atlanta?

Bulk Item Pickup Atlanta – The Trash Company or Junk King?

Trash Services and Junk King have different operation models

Trash Services and Junk King have different operation models

The weekly trash service and Junk King have different operating models – each with its own niche expertise. One big difference is that regular weekly trash service cannot, for insurance reasons, go onto your private property. That’s why you always have to take your unwanted items to the curb.

When you need to get rid of bulk items that do not fit into your trash can, you can call your regular trash service, and they typically will take the items for an additional fee. Again, you still need to take the item to the curb.

In Atlanta, a typical homeowner gets two pick-ups per week for about $65 to $100 per quarter. (Sandy Springs and Buckhead are typically more.) Those pick-ups comprise about seven cubic yards of debris. Fourteen pick-ups and 7 yards of debris for $65 is a great bargain!

These weekly trash services are super-efficient at the routine weekly trash pick-ups. Many have trucks with robotic arms that grab and empty cans. These services work with predictable schedules, predictable routes, with predictable containers, generating predictable loads. In that manner, they can keep their costs way down.

Because bulk items are not predictable and do not fit the trash service’s operating model, the regular trash service charges what might seem to be a fairly hefty fee for picking up the couch, stove, old grills, recliner or old refrigerator.

On the other hand, the Junk King Atlanta model is optimized to deal with the labor-intensive bulk items. Our fleet and crews are nimble enough to conform to your schedule. We carry the insurance and Licenses to allow us to work on your property. so we can do all the work. We have the skills to disassemble items that cannot fit through doorways. (Oh, we’ve seen giant freezers where they installed the freezer then built the walls!)

Consequently, Junk King Atlanta can give you more value (and a better price) for hauling bulk items. For example, in Atlanta, the typical trash service charges $110 to take a double-wall stove. You still need to disconnect the stove and manhandle it down to the curb – usually a two-man job. (A homeowner is thinking, “Wow! $110! I get six months trash service for $110!” To be fair, remember that subscription trash removal and bulk item removal are significantly different.)

Junk King Atlanta will remove the same double-wall stove, perform all the labor from kitchen to recycler—for $65. In addition, if you do drag that beast down to the curb, we’ll take it for $50—100% less than the trash service.

The same math works for refrigerators. The regular trash company charges $75 for the smaller fridges and $110 (or more) for the big side-by-side models. Plus, you need to certify that the freon is drained. (That service can cost up to $150.) Plus, you need to drag the item to the curb. Again, we’ll take the old fridge for $75 and handle all the recycling duties. And, if you still want to drag the old fridge to the curb, we take the fridge and perform the recycling duties for only $50. By the way, Atlanta Junk King is 70% landfill free–the most eco-friendly junk removal service.

The weekly trash service is an expert at the service they provide: weekly pick-ups. Junk King Atlanta is the expert for bulk item pick-ups.  It’s all about picking the right service for the job.

Old couch? Recliner? Mattress? Washer-Dryer? Grill? Hot tub? Yard debris? Stove? Refrigerator? Shed?  Any bulk item . . .  Junk King Atlanta will provide you better service and a better price because bulk item removal is our niche specialty.

Full House Cleanouts

Most Full house Cleanouts are part of the process of living in a house and one of the many great services we perform at Junk King Atlanta. Recently we have had some very cold weather and have performed many jobs where pipes have burst and destroyed carpet and furniture that required being removed and hauled away.
We recently worked with an Insurance company where pipes burst in a hoaders house to make the house inhabitable again. It was required for us to wear Bio Hazard suits and work to the adjusters schedule to remove about 80 cubic yards of papers, books, clothing, trash, damaged furniture , carpet, mattresses, old tube TVs, e-waste and many other items.
I personally know that being an adjuster is a very tough job and can be very stressful particularly when so many claims were being filed for water damage in a short period. In this case our job was to make the adjusters job easier and make him look good in front of his clients. He was extremely complementary about our speed and the quality of our work. We were able to have all the items removed in one (1) long day.
If you need to get a house ready to put on the market or just want to reclaim some space in your house, part of the process will be removing and disposing of some clutter. That’s real life. Junk King’s mission is to make the complicated task of sorting debris, loading trucks, and proper disposal painless for you. We like to say the heaviest thing you need to lift is your telephone we will do all the work. Please call 1-888-888-5865 to schedule an appointment or go to www.junk-king.com to book on line.
