Use Junk King For Old Recliner Removal


Old Recliner

This page was updated 3/13/22


Recliners, couches, and furniture are some of the most important things in our homes. They provide us with an aesthetic that is completely our own while giving our families the most comfort available. They are considered so important, that they can cost thousands of dollars when new, and after they start to decline they are oftentimes condemned to landfills or recycling centers.

The next time you suspect that your recliner is in decline, refer back to this page to check if the signs you’re experiencing are the signs of needing a new piece of furniture. Remember, when you choose to move with Junk King, junk removal is as simple as 1, 2, 3—just point and the junk is gone.



Signs of Decline for Your Old Recliner


Old recliners and furniture have various ways to tell that they are in decline—luckily, most of those ways are shared between all of the pieces, and only in special circumstances do they actually have specific signs of decline. The overarching signs to look for in a declining recliner or piece of furniture are: 


  • The recliner or furniture is rough or uncomfortable. This is important to keep tabs on because it can point you towards any issues that the chair might be having in its current environment. For example, if your recliner is suddenly fading or cracking in places, it could be from an overabundance of sun damage. 
  • The recliner or furniture does not function properly or requires extra effort. This is a tell-tale sign of decline in the life of a piece of furniture. Often times people will attempt to fix their recliners themselves, and while this works for a small amount of time, long term the damage has likely already been done. 
  • The recliner or furniture makes strange noises like cracks or moans. It’s normal for some protest to come from very old or overused furniture, but excessive sounds are a sign of wear and tear and an indication that you should start thinking about your next furniture choices. 
  • The recliner or furniture fails to support your spine and body. If you sit down in a recliner, it is meant to be a luxurious and relaxing experience—having any pain in your body afterward is likely due to the recliner having a lack of body support. This cannot be fixed and usually results in the removal of the object. 


Each one of these signs is very important to pay attention to because they notify you of the need for a new recliner. If you are experiencing one of these signs, consider thinking about your next piece of furniture—and consider calling Junk King North Atlanta to assist you in every step of the removal process.

Best Practices to Restore and Maintain Your Recliner and Furnishings



atlanta furniture removal



There are only so many ways that you can restore and maintain your furniture since there are only so many ways that your furniture can be made. If your recliner or furniture is starting to age, consider these tips to assist in extending its life, and if the damage is too great, you can always cut your losses and call Junk King to remove it instead:


  • Clean your recliner or furniture: this may seem like an obvious tip, but very few people actually spend the time to clean and condition their furniture. Making sure that you are cleaning and taking care of your furniture will ensure that the piece remains in its best condition for the longest amount of time.
  • Consider refinishing your furniture: not all furniture can be restored, but the kind that can, will as much as double the life span of your furnishings. Most of the time, refinishing your furniture will require a little elbow grease, but you can also hire professionals to do the refinishing for you. 
  • Keep furniture out of direct sunlight: one of the most powerful sources of existence in our planetary system is the sun—and your furniture sitting in its direct path is a ticket to damage. After only a week you may start to see bleaching, and after a month you could start to see cracks. Keep your furniture out of direct sunlight and you’ll greatly extend its life span.
  • Make sure to use the right products: there is a lot of cleaning solutions out there these days—and making sure that you are using the right tools and materials on your furniture will hugely affect the longterm life of your furniture. For example, if your recline has wood on it, are you making sure to wipe the wood in the same direction as the grain? Going against the grain could take years off of the life span of the wood. 
  • Keep feet and animals off the pillows: we all love our family members, but putting your shoed feet up on the furniture can encourage weakness in the fibers of your furniture—and the nails of animals are apt to snag those delicate threads too. Keep your feet (and the animals) off of your furniture to keep it in the best possible condition for the longest possible time. 
  • Smoke or vape outside, every time: although smoking has fallen out of favor in the last decade, vaping has taken its place as the habit of today’s millennials and generation Z. No matter what you smoke or vape, make sure to do it outside and away from your furniture. The fabrics of furniture are often very susceptible to absorbing smells and colors, so choosing to smoke inside will mean a yellow haze and a thick smell of smoke on the furniture itself. This can be fixed by hiring the right service, but it’s a far better choice to just do it outside. (It’s less rude as well.) 
  • Tighten the screws and joints every six months: not all furniture will have easy-access joints and screws, but the ones that do are easily tightened every six months. It is important to do this because it will allow you to keep the furniture in its best condition while also looking over it for damage or changes. Make sure to also keep the manual and any significant hardware close by too—the easiest way to do this is to put it all in a bag and tape it to the underside of your furniture. 



Recycling Old Recliners, Couches, and Furniture


Not all professional removal services are created equal. Some professional services are just that, removal services only. These types of services are great if you don’t mind dropping potentially recyclable items into landfills, while also not receiving the full possible services that can come from a removal crew. Such services are championed by Junk King because Junk King was founded on the premise that junk removal could be better for everyone and the environment


Part of this idolization of being a better service can be seen in how Junk King approaches the aftercare of junk removal. Many junk removal services will simply do their removal and deliver the junk and trash to the closest or most convenient landfill.


For Junk King, this is not the correct way to do a removal. Instead, Junk King completes their removal and delivers the junk and trash to the Junk King ‘recycling hub’—where the professionals at Junk King separate your junk into various ‘piles’.


Some of these piles are made to signal that the junk needs to be donated, while others indicate that there is too much soil and dirt to reuse or recycle and so furniture and junk in this pile need to be taken to the landfill. However, there is also another area where junk can go, and that is into the recycling pile. 


Recycling at Junk King operates by taking complex items like refrigerators or mattresses or even recliners, and breaking them down into their most simplistic parts, like springs, fabrics, or hardware. After this, all of the various materials are shipped away from Junk King and to the relevant recycling facilities.

This way of doing recycling takes a large amount of time, but the time cost is worth it in the end—since Junk King provides you with the easiest way to have your junk removed, while at the same time providing protection to the local environment and the animals in which we share it.

How to Properly Dispose of Wooden Pallets in Atlanta

Wooden Pallets


We’ve all seen wooden pallets sitting outside of local warehouses. Typically, they’re made of a light wood that splinters and breaks with enough force; yet we still use this brittle wood as a means of transporting large shipments of product and materials. Recently, these pallets have even become a magnet for DIYers. These creative people have turned them into outside lounges and even the bases for couches and tables. While it’s great that people are taking the time to recycle and reuse the materials around them—what should happen to the pallets that aren’t picked up and turned into a chair? If you’ve come into possession of some pallets and need them removed, but don’t know how to properly dispose of them—Junk King in North Atlanta is at your service.

Don’t Throw Your Pallets Out, Call Us Instead – Junk King, North Atlanta


The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has been recording the waste and recycled materials used every year for over two decades. In 2018, the US used 292.4 million tons of material, and of that 6.2% was wood. They classify the goods created from these materials in the following way:


Durable goods last three years or more; nondurable goods generally last less than three years; and containers and packaging are assumed to be discarded the same year the products they contain are purchased.


Pallets themselves account for nearly all of the EPA’s ‘wood packaging’ category. They found that 58.8% of the packaging was landfilled after its use—no doubt corporations and businesses throwing them into the rented dumpster just outside their backdoors. Why might companies immediately jump to throwing them out in the closest dumpster? There are a few reasons:


  1. Convenience:

    We all know that it is a hassle dealing with paper packaging, make that packaging wooden and it’s more hassle than the wood is worth; ergo, throw it out. 

  2. Convention:

    Part of the draw to the use of wood as a packaging product is that it is repairable when pieces inevitably bust and splinter apart. In the past few decades pallets have been known for their brittle natures (due to wood choice via availability) and so it has become conventional to throw them out upon their unloading. “There is no immediate reason to keep them—throw them out!”

  3. Unknown Potentials:

    The one thing that every business can capitalize on, is the ability to make money. As we’ll soon see, there is a tremendous amount of potential where pallets are concerned. The only reason why companies don’t utilize the demand for their wooden packaging is that they aren’t aware it is an opportunity. 


Even pallet-creating companies are aware of their continued potential after they are unloaded, and before they are thrown into a dumpster or broken apart. For example, take a look at the opinion championed by FALM (First Alliance Logistics Management, LLC): 


When you wind up with a bunch of unneeded wooden pallets, consider some options before discarding them. There are many ways you can choose to get rid of unwanted pallets. The worst possible way is to throw them in the garbage. Not only is this a waste of good resources, but it could also mean money down the drain. Recycling your unwanted pallets can benefit your company, as well as the industry. 


To put their words into perspective, FALM is not just a pallet builder and distributor; they are a super network of over 225 pallet manufacturing and repair companies. Of course, we can always make the argument that they don’t want us to throw away those things which they made, because they made it; but, let’s avoid the proverbial child’s drawing argument (save things for sentimental reasons). These are very much just wooden pallets. The problem through is that they can be better used, even after they have taken on multiple loads and have gained a few broken boards (since they can be replaced). This is the stance taken on by Junk King in North Atlanta; the worst thing you could do is throw out these pieces of opportunity. Instead, call on us to ensure that they are properly disposed of—whether that means breaking them down, replacing boards, or recycling them into a new project or for another shipment.

Pallets and Opportunities: Alternative Options & Recycling with Junk King North Atlanta


There are multiple types of materials that pallets can be created out of and each type of material presents advantages and disadvantages. Here is a quick look at wooden pallets versus alternative options (a study conducted by the Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality):



Advantage: repairable, cheap

Disadvantage: lowered safety due to splinters and cheap wood



Advantage: made of recycled material

Disadvantage: not repairable, potential fire hazard



Advantage: made of recycled material, repairable

Disadvantage: very high cost per unit, usually heavy


Composite (multiple materials)

Advantage: repairable, extremely strong load weight

Disadvantage: fair to high cost per unit, little data on performance 


Why does looking at the disadvantages in comparison to wooden pallets matter? It matters because we can see why companies continuously pick wooden pallets over other alternatives. The traditional use of wooden pallets means that there are advantages to choosing wood over other materials and these advantages surpass even the massive load-bearing capacities of composite pallets. These sentimentalities can be viewed extensively when we look at even more numbers to explain the relations. 


A full decade ago “there were 416 million new pallets manufactured”, out of every 100 of those, about 43 were recycled or recovered pallets. Since then, we can estimate that the number of pallets in use has steadily increased, with a particularly explosive increase during 2020—when everyone stayed home, and many people chose to ship in their groceries and products. Today, it is estimated that out of all of those pallets that are used, about 95% of them are recovered and recycled into usable materials (according to the National Wooden Pallet & Container Association). 


This is great news for those people who are involved with the recycling of these packaging materials, and it is even better news for the world and the environment as a whole. However, what are you supposed to do if you and your business have never recycled pallets before? Where do you take them? Should you try repairing or rebuilding them yourself? How do you even know if they can be saved? In North Atlanta, Junk King is your solution for not only junk hauling and removal—we also take and properly dispose of wooden pallets too.

Why Rent a Dumpster from Junk King North Atlanta

If you’ve never rented a dumpster before, there could be a resistance to doing so. Maybe you’re nervous that you don’t have enough to fill the dumpster—so you may end up losing money on the deal. Maybe you’re worried that it won’t fit in your driveway, so you’ll need to put it in the street and annoy the neighbors. Maybe you’re just worried about how the ordering and process happens in general. Junk King has an answer to every one of these worries (and more). Additionally, Junk King knows that there is a lot of reasons why you might want a dumpster to make your life easier; here are four of those situations (although there are countless others to consider).  


Full-Scale or Large Clean-outs

Not everything in life works out the way we think it will. For situations like this, Junk King offers a full-service removal option. That may seem quite excessive if you’re only looking at the words themselves. After all, most people need a clean-out because one or two rooms of their home have become filled with junk. However, the attraction to our full-service removals comes in the form of our top-rated customer service. Each full-service order comes with a crew of our specially trained removal professionals, as well as a truck to take it all away in. This means that you just have to point, and we’ll take care of the rest. 


Removals like this often come in the form of a few rooms that have been overrun with junk—but that doesn’t mean that it only applies to these situations. These clean-outs can also be done to things like storage units, businesses, tenet-free apartments, even entire houses can be gutted by our professionals. Our teams come with one of our Junk King trucks—the inside of which can hold the same amount as six pickup trucks. This means that you can fill the entire truck, and most likely still have a little room left over. (By the way, that worry about not using all of the space, and wasting money because the dumpster isn’t full? That’s not a worry with Junk King—with us, you only pay for the space that you use, not the entire truck or dumpster!)


Moving or Vacating a Property

When it comes time for you or a loved one to move, give us a call first. By calling us first, you can utilize our services to make the entire process easier and faster than ever before. You can rent one of our special MINI dumpsters—they are smaller than your average roll-away dumpster, meaning that they can fit in your driveway perfectly (avoiding those neighbors). They also hold 12 cubic feet of junk and trash, which means you can fit a very large amount of stuff inside of them before they are filled. This is a self-service option in which you trade extra hands (full-service) for time (multiple days). We suggest renting a MINI at the beginning of the moving process, but also at the end—a few days before you leave for the last time. In hiring us for a second time, you can make sure that everything is picked up, cleaned out, and thrown away that needs to be thrown away. 


Another draw to ordering a self-service dumpster from Junk King is the savings you net in time and money. All of the hassles that happen with moving normally ignite a lot of tensions and stresses in life; you can reduce that stress by getting help from professionals. Consider the situation if you instead chose to use the general waste site in place of a Junk King MINI: you’d need to load up your biggest car, drive to the site, pay for whatever you have, and then pay additionally for any extra weight, unload the junk, then drive all the way home. Now, do that five or six times at the start of the moving process. Obviously, there are more savings to be had by just ordering a MINI



Almost all property owners know the problems that come from wanting to do renovations. There are permits involved, professionals walking through your home, contractors arguing for resources—and to make it all more stressful, a mess that may or may not be cleaned up by the professionals that are hired. You can make the renovation easier on yourself and the people that you hire, by renting a roll-away dumpster. It may be tempting to say that the contractors should clean up after themselves (since they are the ones that broke the wall, right?) but in reality, it can be an unsafe and time-consuming job to clean the work site after said work has started. This means that things aren’t cleaned until the very end in many cases, since they usually don’t have removal means necessary on construction days. This leads to continuous construction debris and an increasingly unsafe environment while things are being updated. 


Instead, by renting a MINI from Junk King you’ll have a place to put all of that debris and useless material (that isn’t your backyard where your kids play). Even full-scale businesses can greatly benefit from getting a dumpster during their renovations. Things like wall dust and broken lights are a work hazard for professional contractors—not for office workers with corporate deadlines. The waste management for these jobs is especially important because it is the difference between a nail going into a dumpster, or into the shoe of a child or CEO. 


Cleaning for Events

Some of the most anticipated events every year are the holidays and family gatherings. Many people have memories of their mothers waking up early to clean for an entire week before important events. This has changed somewhat in the last decade, as the newer generations of adults don’t normally feel the same pressures that their parents did. However, this doesn’t mean that all of the pressure is gone—it has just migrated. Instead of there being pressure for a pristine home, there is pressure for there to be bigger and better entertainment areas and toys. The appearance of both just happen to correspond to needing clean areas in order to best entertain and enjoy. This is one of the draws of Junk King’s self-service model. The MINIs begin at a three-day rental period, which means that you have the time to clean up all areas of your home for the upcoming engagements. 


Junk King services are also highly desirable for anything involving outdoor removals of yard wastes. This is extremely beneficial for those people who are doing new installations during the spring or fall, as well as being important for clean-up after storms or before the holidays claw their way out of the depths of winter. Yard debris cleaning can be a challenging thing for many removal companies, but for Junk King, it isn’t a challenge at all.
