You may just be looking at your options, and not be fully committed to the idea of getting a dumpster, for fear that it might look “excessive”.


No matter what your reason is for getting a dumpster, Junk King Atlanta is here to provide it to you. Junk King North Atlanta is your local answer for everything related to junk removal, just give us a call to find out more about how we can help you.

Junk King North Atlanta’s Reasons to Get a Dumpster 


We here at Junk King know that there are almost limitless reasons for a person to want or need a dumpster at their property. We know this because we have seen many situations where getting a dumpster would have made everything easier for everyone. We even have a comprehensive list of everything we take in our roll-away dumpsters, regardless of whether you choose to fill the dumpster yourself with our self-service option, or you want a little help from our professional removal teams, with our full-service option. If you’re not sure that your project requires a dumpster to complete, here are a few situations where you’d want to get a dumpster—in both residential and business instances. 



Are often characterized by insurance companies as being all or nothing. In the real world, nothing is really that black and white, especially with property damages. Look at storms, floods, fires, tornados, accidents, or the yearly hurricane season. The worst cases mean that someone has lost everything—but the cases that we don’t hear in the news are the other 90% of people, those who now need help cleaning up what is left over as the smoke clears. Cleaning up after a disaster is time-consuming and emotionally draining. Call us to help



Are one of the most common reasons that people call us. From basements that are filled with boxed-up memories to garages that are filled top to bottom with oils, paints, and old junk—even your local hoarding situation, dumpsters are your best friends. In some cases, we even will offer the ability to do a full removal of a lite structure that can be broken down, like a dilapidated shed or a PVC pipe greenhouse. In cases like cleanouts, we always recommend getting the full-service option, since these sorts of removals can take a long time to do by yourself. 



Are some of the best instances to call us. Whether you are a landlord looking to upgrade your housing for new tenants or you’re a homeowner who is over that ugly orange countertop that the prior owners installed—Junk King in North Atlanta is at your service. The most common housing renovations include kitchens and bathrooms, while the most common business renovations include opening pathways for doors and the removal of construction wastes. (We should take a moment to note here that while we do take construction waste, we do not take hazardous materials, dirt, soil, concrete, or gravel.) 



Is something that everyone will do multiple times in their life. This doesn’t mean that the entire process should be stressful from the inception of the idea to the moment you hand over the keys. Moving.com is one of the most looked at sources for preparing to move, and they even suggest getting some help if you can. There is an important aspect to this reason that is often overlooked. When we talk about moving, it implies moving the entire home and all of your belongings to a new location. It doesn’t need to mean that, however. You may need to get rid of some unused junk to make room for someone new who is moving into your home, or for a nursery for a coming baby. 



Are something that most of us have, the luckiest of us may have quite a large yard space—and there are plenty of reasons to get a dumpster if you have a yard of any size. Take for instance, if you are wanting to get or change your landscaping. There is bound to be a lot of yard waste from the process and getting one of our dumpsters will save you time and labor that would otherwise be spent on cleanup. The same can be said for new installs like pools, retaining walls, outside fireplaces, or outside kitchens—all of these require removal help, and who better to help than the professionals at Junk King? 



Is in everyone’s mind during the spring and fall months. We get taught as children that there is such a thing as “spring cleaning”. As adults, we eventually learn about the “fall cleaning” too, which is relatively new, and necessary for the other half of the six-month maintenance timetable. The good thing about these biannual cleanings, as old school as they may be, is that it gives everyone a chance to buckle down and clean for a few weeks. This results in a better, cleaner environment for everyone, and a more enjoyable year overall. 



are obviously the name of the game for us—but just saying the word “property” doesn’t tell you anything about what we can do for you (but it does tell you that we value consistency). What is meant by properties, are we helping with situations that involve the property itself. For example, we are able to provide assistance in cleaning out foreclosed homes, helping remove junk and trash left over by tenants, and we can even help when it is time to move your loved one into a hospice. A property cleanout is no challenge for us, so we always suggest ordering a full-service option to get you all of the help you could ever need with your removal.

What Goes into Dumpster Rental Costs? Junk King North Atlanta Can Help


All dumpster rental companies and junk haulers will have their own way of doing business. Since most roll-away dumpsters are all rated for the same type of stuff, we can make some assumptions about what your rental costs will rack up to be. Consider the following as impacting your costs:


  • -Dumpster size (from the biggest to the smallest)


  • -Dumpster availability (some locations have more than others)


  • -Rental periods (ranging from days to weeks)


  • -Total weight of the removal inside of the dumpster


  • -Type of stuff being removed (since e-waste needs to be disposed of properly)

You’ll also normally be billed for the entire dumpster, which means you’ll want to fill it up while you have it, and thus increase the weight, and then increase the cost further. 


In comparison to this, Junk King has multiple unique features that set us apart from the other guys. For example, our dumpsters range in sizes, the most common being our MINIs. These are 12 cubic yards, giving enough room for even the most daunting hauls, and still being manageable enough to fit into a residential driveway. We also have a policy that states that you only pay for the portion of the dumpster that you use, so you can take up the bottom half of a MINI, and only pay for the removal of that half, instead of the entire space. Take a look at our estimator to see what sort of quote you could get right now.

What Dumpster Size to Get & The Junk King MINI in North Atlanta

For all the reasons you could want a dumpster, there are also a large number of options for what size dumpster you should get. Many people think that bigger is better, but in this case, bigger could mean a blocked road and extra costs that could have been avoided. Here are some of the most popular dumpster sizes and what they are best used for according to Moving.com:


  • 10 Cubic Yard Dumpsters: can hold between 4,000 to 6,000 pounds. “Good for small home pre-move junk removal and small to medium landscaping projects.”


  • 15 Cubic Yard Dumpsters: can hold between 4,000 to 6,000 pounds. “Good for small remodels, roofing jobs, and large landscaping projects.”


  • 20 Cubic Yard Dumpsters: can hold up to 6,000 pounds usually. “Good for kitchen and other extensive room remodels as well as large home pre-move junk removal.”


  • 30 Cubic Yard Dumpsters: can hold between 7,000 to 10,000 pounds. “Good for renovations and other whole house construction projects, as well as whole house cleanouts.”


  • 40 Cubic Yard Dumpsters: can hold between 10,000 to 12,000 pounds. “Good for major construction projects, demolitions, and large scale renovations.”


As mentioned before, we at Junk King also offer an option unique to us, our fabulous MINI dumpsters. At 12 cubic yards, these little guys are the sweet spot for almost all home junk removals. It fits inside of your driveway, and it also is safer and greener for the environment. (We should add that we are the greenest junk removal company in North America—60% of every haul away is recycled!)

Bring In Junk King For A Back-To-School Rubbish Session

Junk King Back to School

updated 8/10/22


What Exactly is Junk King and Why Should You Schedule Service?


What is A Junk King?


Junk King is an eco-friendly solution for those looking at junk removal and trash disposal services. It is North America’s greenest junk removal solution for property owners and corporations. Franchise owners can pick between two types of removal services—some more extensive franchises make both services available.


Why Should You Schedule Service?


Junk King services consist of two options. Full-service is where a client receives a removal crew and a Big Red Truck to assist in the move. Self-service is where a client gets a multi-day dumpster rental called the Junk King MINI


Many do-it-yourself supporters question whether a removal service is “worth it.” The answer to that inquiry depends on:


  • What the services charge 
  • What services do for you
  • Whether or not the cost is more acceptable than the labor would be


Because of the differences between what people consider valuable in terms of services, many families find Junk King services to be beyond helpful. Property and commercial owners schedule Junk King services for many reasons. Some of these include:


  • After a disaster, like a storm or a wildfire
  • When moving locations, like homes or offices
  • Seasonal cleanings, like Spring or Fall
  • During renovations, like remodeling or exterminators
  • To remove debris, like landscaping or construction
  • In assisting in clearing land, like removing brushes or tree trunks
  • For removing appliances, like refrigerators or dishwashers
  • In removing stand-alone buildings, like sheds or hoop houses
  • And a lot more!

When is the Best Time to Schedule Your Back-to-School Rubbish Session?


The best time to schedule your removal service is in the changing seasons. Peak seasonal cleaning happens in Spring and Fall—these are the most comfortable times for our crews to assist with removals. 


In the case of back-to-school cleaning, we suggest using the Fall season. This is right as kids are heading back for a new year, so they have one more chance to clean their room—and parents get assistance cleaning up their properties. 


The Dangers of the Extremes


The changing seasons are preferred over the extremes because of the challenges that come with each extreme season. Winter brings dangerous ice across the US, making it impossible for removals to go smoothly. At the same time, summers bring heat and dry air than ever before, making our removers sitting ducks for heat stroke


Of course, if something did go wrong during a removal (like a fall or heatstroke), Junk King is 100% insured, bonded, and ready to help. 


Junk King Schedule Options


There are many ways to receive a quote from a Junk King specialist:



  • Call us at (706) 247-7513: Speak with a highly-trained customer service representative. Our quote specialists can give you a quote in minutes!
  • Text us at (737) 888-5865: Text us pictures of your junk, and we will answer with a quote estimate. You can even use this for multiple quotes.
  • Get a quote in person: Schedule an in-person assessment of your junk and receive a written quote for your troubles. Junk King specializes in no hidden costs and clear communication.


The Benefits of Doing One Last Minute Cleaning on the Week Before Classes Start


For students, when school starts, a lot of things go by the wayside. A clean room is nothing compared to a foreign language test or that weekend’s latest party. Many benefits come with having one last minute cleaning right before school starts. Some of these benefits include:


A Clean Slate to Make a Cleaning Schedule 


Cleaning up is difficult for most people to do—it’s tedious and never-ending. Taking the time to create a cleaning schedule will assist in getting chores done faster than without one. At the same time, families can also develop ways to track chores and rewards for their completion. Many people find that they are cleaner when they take a few minutes to clean before school or work during the week.


Declutter the Important Areas


High traffic zones in your home and frequent population areas should all be clean. Every student does better in a cleaned and organized home—it keeps their focus on more important things. Having a dedicated homework zone is one of the best things parents can do since distractions are at a minimum.


Double-Check School Supplies


All students are bound to need supplies (even the adult ones). Taking the time to double-check your kids’ supplies will help to prepare them for the upcoming school year (or semester). Additionally, kids must pick out their supplies, as this fosters a sense of individuality and confidence. 


Clean Out Old, Soiled, or Ill-Fitting Clothes


Some people love shopping—others don’t; no matter what type of child you have, it is always a good idea to review their clothing when possible. This will ensure they are as comfortable and confident as they can be before school starts. Again, pre-teens and young adults must pick out their own clothes; it affects their perspective on life. 


How to Get Rid of Back-to-School Junk in 3 Simple Steps


Step 1: Call Junk King North Atlanta, and Get A Quote


To get rid of any junk, trash, garbage, or stuff—call Junk King North Atlanta. Junk King provides service to all residents and businesses in Metro Atlanta. Junk King North Atlanta is also a sister location to Junk King Cobb County and Junk King Gwinnett. 


Before your removal is scheduled, make sure to get a quote. (Get a quote even if you choose to move with someone else!) Junk King takes a unique approach to quotes, as we will beat any written estimate. Clients can also receive a written quote from Junk King, and written quotes are the most concrete estimates available. 


Step 2: Prepare Your Home, and Wait for Us


Not every location is immediately ready for junk removal. Homeowners and business owners must take time to make the area suitable for our removal crews. Often, this consists of having a four-foot wide path for our professionals to move through.  


After contacting us and setting up a schedule, our Junk King professionals will call you on the day of the services. Our teams will always call within a two-hour window, 15 minutes before we arrive. In self-service cases, our removal professionals will return for our MINI. Usually, rental periods range from 3-days to 7-days. 


Step 3: Agree to Our Costs, and Your Junk is Gone!


Junk King calculates costs differently than other junk removal companies. Because Junk King’s Big Red Trucks and MINIs are on average 20% larger than the competitor at the same price, our calculations are based on volume rather than weight. 


If you agree to our cost, your junk is gone. And that garbage is taken to our recycling hub, where experts process the trash and send it out to any possible CHaRM facilities in the area. Those items we cannot process are sent to the landfill or chosen for reuse, repurposing, or donating. 


When it is back to school time, that means it is also fall cleaning time. Contact us today to speak with a representative before your school district opens for the new year. It’ll save you time and stress when it comes time for your removal. 


Tips for Handling your Back-to-School Junk


There are many types of back-to-school junk; knowing some tips to deal with it can make life much less stressful for kids and parents.


  • Don’t just rearrange piles of junk (i.e., paperwork). Clutter can appear quickly; stay on top of it by culling items when possible. 
  • Donate unused or old toys and stuff. The average child has more than 200 toys, all of which are distractions (plus, they only play with 12 to 15 in a given day). 
  • During the school year, plan a specific time dedicated to returning your home to a decent state—if things fall by the wayside because of life. 
  • Parents and adult students should also carefully clean their backpacks before the beginning of a new year or semester. (That will make it lighter.)
  • Handle clutter in high population areas by getting organized—if everything has a place, nothing should be out of place. 
  • Don’t forget: just because you’re removing back-to-school junk that doesn’t mean you can’t get rid of some of your stuff too. 


Choose to move with Junk King North Atlanta today! By contacting us today, you can get a Big Red Truck or MINI dumpster as early as tomorrow. Plus, you use North America’s most eco-friendly removal company when you move with Junk King.

Back-to-school is hard on students—there’s no reason it also needs to be hard on the parents. Get back-to-school help by contacting Junk King for your next removal. Our full-service option is as easy as 1, 2, 3—just point, and the junk is gone!

Check Your Equipment Before You Decorate – Junk King’s Solution for A Better Holiday


No matter what holiday fills you with joy, if you’re a homeowner, you’ve likely got some decorations floating around. The great thing about holiday decorations is that they can be wrapped up and saved for the next year, right? Well, most of the time that’s correct, but sometimes things don’t work out that way; we could have wrapped up our Christmas tree wrong and destroyed the branches, we could have put the fireworks in a damp place and rotted out the ignition powder, we could even have gone through a storm and received a visit from the local raccoon family—more than happy to make a nest out of our Halloween webs and apple-picking basket.


When big events happen like storms, or if you know that your decorations aren’t well stored, now is a great time to pull them all out and look at them. It will save you a lot of heartache and money if you find something that could be a dangerous issue. Checking your equipment and decorations before you decorate, is a huge part of responsible homeownership and a necessity before every holiday.


Additionally, as you pull out your holiday boxes, make sure to note which decorations are older than the others. These old ones are going to be first on the list to break down and become potential hazards, assuming they haven’t already. Fortunly.com, a financial analysis website that provides statistics, articles, and infographics on consumer spending habits, found that nearly half of all Americans don’t want to buy Christmas decorations. They made this connection one of their top shopping stats for Christmas spending saying,


“A survey based on responses from 1,025 U.S. citizens revealed that 49% of them don’t want to spend any money on Christmas decorations. In these Christmas decoration statistics, 14% said that they’d be happy to just receive decorations as holiday gifts. While some might lament this lack of exaggerated festivity, we might be looking at the start of a new, thrifty, environmentally conscious trend. “


Based on these statistics, it’s safe to assume that if people aren’t wanting to buy decorations for Christmas—arguably the most celebrated holiday in the U.S.—then they probably don’t want to buy new decorations every year for the other holidays too. While we, and the environment, thank everyone for this reduce and reuse approach to decorations, it’s also very important to look at the decorations being used and get rid of the ones that could be dangerous to you, your family, your neighborhood, and to your holiday. Fortunately, you know just the guys to help you out with any and all removals, from junk to broken decorations, in North Atlanta.

Decorating Your Yard this Holiday? Know the Stats and Call Junk King North Atlanta


Yard Waste Removal



In 2015 the Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFi) published an article about holiday data and statistics related to electrical issues and fires. Overall, they concluded that there needs to be a significant increase in electrical/fire safety awareness, saying “[the] National Fire Protection Association statistics indicate that 30% of all home fires and 38% of home fire deaths occur during the months of December, January, and February.” The article continued, speaking at length about U.S. home structure fires, cooking fires, home fire victims, heating fires, and of course, electrical fires. 


The statistics spoken about in the article are concerned with the entire year of holiday fire and injury statistics. For example, they raise the statistic that “about 3,300 residential fires originate in extension cords each year, killing 50 people and injuring about 270 others.” How many extension cords do you pull out into your yard every holiday for the moving decorations, the lighting, even the fog machine on Halloween? 


The statistics don’t stop there either. As we move our decorations outside, we also increase the amount of danger that comes with decorating in the open environment. Situations like falls from ladders account for a hefty amount of holiday injuries. It’s estimated that 40% of the injuries that happen during outside decorating, are from a ladder, roof, or step stool falls. 


How can we help reduce all of the fires, injuries, and issues that come with decorating outside for our favorite holidays? There are basic safety tips that everyone should know, of course, but there is actually more than can be done for you and your family. Some of the biggest reasons why these accidents happen in the first place is because our yards and homes aren’t ready for the increased heat produced by electrics, the extra room taken up by big decorations, or the ground is not clear or stable for things like ladders and equipment. 


If, when reading that, you immediately thought of a particular decoration or area of your yard, fear not! Junk King, North Atlanta is your local one-stop junk removal professionals. Our knowledge about removals of all types will help us, help you—to get the best version of your yard, for the best and safest holidays your family can have.

Call Junk King North Atlanta for Every One of Your Removal Needs and Options


Junk King is your best option for local junk removal services. We are so dedicated to giving you all of the options that you could want for your needs, that we have two distinct options for removal, from emptying your home to reducing and cleaning out your yard for the holidays. 


First, consider the size of the junk removal you want to have done. Many times, homeowners prefer to go in alone and do junk removals themselves, so we’ve provided one of the best self-service options in North America. Our self-service dumpster rentals are able to be rented for multiple days, allowing you the most time to get everything you need together to be removed. Not only that, but we also offer the only version of a mini dumpster possible for rental. Our MINIs are perfect for any driveway and any small area. They offer a 12 cubic yard interior, which ensures that even your biggest removals can be taken away with this option. To top it all off? If you need it longer than three days, just give us a call and speak with the highest-quality customer service reps in the world—we’d be happy to lend you the extra time. 


On the other hand, perhaps you have too much stuff that needs to be removed. Maybe that fallen tree is too much for you to handle, or maybe there is too much broken deck wood for you to want to deal with. Either way, you have the option of choosing our full-service removals instead of the self-service. Where yard cleanups are concerned, this is the highest-rated choice among our clients. In our full-service option, we bring the dumpster to you, and we also bring the muscle too. Our approach to junk removal means that you have the easiest experience possible, which is why we offer the full-service option. Our cleanup crews are specially trained to deal with anything you can throw at them for removal (except for hazardous wastes!). That’s why we are ranked as #1 in junk removal across the United States and Canada.  


To get started, take a look at our pricing estimator. It was custom-made just for us and our customers. In it, you can select the closest possible options for your removal needs. Whether that is half a truck worth of furniture or an entire truck worth of appliances. The best part about the estimator? You can overestimate the amount of room you need, and then end up paying less—why is that? Well, as part of our commitment to delivering the best customer service possible, when your junk is in our dumpsters, you only pay for the space that you use. This means that if you estimate your needed space to be over a truckload, and end up only using a portion of your available space, you don’t pay for that unused space, saving you more money and giving you peace of mind that you’re working with the right guys for the job. There are four ways to contact us—choose your favorite and set up an appointment to work with us today! Our process is the best in the world, reach out to us to see why.
