Everything that you are getting rid of will eventually make its way onto the back Junk King truck. This is a large truck big enough to hold the equivalent of six pickup trucks worth of stuff. That will certainly be plenty of room for all of your clutter! How everything gets onto the back of the truck will determine how much you will pay for the job.

Junk King Can Help Clear Out Your Guestroom

One appointment with these professional junk haulers is all that it will take to get your guestroom clear of clutter.

Dumpster Rental: The Answer to Construction and Demolition Debris in Atlanta

Dumpster Rental

 

Junk King is best known in the junk hauling world for being both the greenest option for removals in North America and for being the top-rated hauling service for customer service. A significant amount of the work that comes through our trucks is attributed to those residential cases where either a self-service option or a full-service option is appropriate. However, Junk King also offers a range of services for businesses and companies; some of the most difficult junk to haul comes from these sources, and Junk King is proud to handle these cases. For us, it’s as simple as 1, 2, 3—point and it’s gone.

Identifying Construction and Demolition Debris with Junk King North Atlanta

 

Atlanta Dumpster Rental

 

Contractors and project managers all know that every part of a project must be watched as closely as possible in order to ensure the desired end result of a process. What is commonly overlooked though, is the inevitable construction/demolition (C&D) debris. It can be hard to even identify the debris because it feels somehow wrong to call material from construction ‘debris’ since we only ever really use the term with a disastrous inference. The EPA has a good list that can be considered the basic materials of C&D:

 

C&D materials are generated when new building and civil-engineering structures are built and when existing buildings and civil-engineering structures are renovated or demolished (including deconstruction activities). Civil-engineering structures include public works projects, such as streets and highways, bridges, utility plants, piers, and dams. C&D materials often contain bulky, heavy materials such as: concrete, wood, asphalt, gypsum, metals, bricks, glass, plastics, salvaged building components, or trees, stumps, earth, and rocks from clearing sites. 

 

The majority of C&D materials cannot be recycled in their current state. This means that if you simply load up a work truck with leftover material and take it to the local general waste landfill—all of that material is going to go straight into the landfill. There needs to be a secondary filter that happens between the construction site and the landfill—and Junk King is that filter. As mentioned before, Junk King has a strict commitment to adhering to the Green Movement—for residential purposes, this means at least 60% of the junk that is hauled is recycled by our team. For construction material, this threshold is normally higher, since most C&D materials can be recycled into further objects. Choosing to work with Junk King in this respect then, is the difference between throwing an entire tree worth of wood into the landfill versus into a combine to be recycled again and again. Many materials harvested from C&D can be reused, assuming that they are saved before going to the local landfill. For example, salvaged materials like doors, hardware, or even appliances can be pulled out of the junk pile and rebuild for donation pieces. Wood can be saved for a variety of uses, including blockings or chipped down into mulch or ground cover. Even insulation from exteriors can be saved and donated to a construction group for the building of low-income homes.

 

The difficulty then comes in knowing what materials Junk King can legally take, and which ones we cannot. Concrete, asphalt, and soil are a no-go in our books—other than that, we also cannot take paints, finishers, or anything that can be considered hazardous. The upside to this is that we can take things like large appliancesmattresses, and even e-wastes. These three things alone are not typically picked up by your local hauling services, but Junk King takes them, and that puts us head and shoulders above the rest of the competition because we handle what the other guys will not or cannot.

An Increase in Population Means an Increase in C&D—Call Junk King North Atlanta to Help

 

It is no secret that the population around the world is increasing, even despite the newest generations having fewer children than ever before. This is important because of Atlanta’s current resident-to-home ratio. As the population increases, there will be a drive for additional housing, jobs, marketplaces, production factories, and of course, additional amenities which are specific to each of those groups. It is projected that “between 2015 and 2050, the metro Atlanta region’s total population and employment are forecast to increase by 51% and 34% respectively, within the same 30-year period.” Gwinnett county, for example, is expecting 588,000+ new residents by the year 2050. It’s necessary that before this influx of residents occurs, Atlanta constructs a reasonable amount of resources for them. This is where Junk King can step in for assistance. Junk King’s business-to-business service offers more resources than the traditional residential versions. For example, Junk King offers payment plans for those who wish to utilize them when dealing with commercial removal. Junk King also insures each of its crew members ensure that all of our bases are covered; this protects our clients, and us while we work.

What is Commercial Junk Removal? How does Junk King North Atlanta Handle Big Projects?

 

 

Every project is unique when it comes to Junk King and the best way to approach the removal. Even for construction and demolition projects, there are special tools and manners in which materials are gathered and removed. Luckily, Junk King’s services are so versatile that we’re often called before a construction or demolition project begins, during the process, and after the main pieces are put up/taken down. We always encourage calling us before starting a project because our teams are equipped for every stage of the process. This means, if you are erecting a building on your property for the first time, our yard services and tools will greatly help with the clearing process, yard debris doesn’t stand a chance against us. In contrast, if you are planning to demolish a structure, it is always necessary to remove everything from within the structure before you start. This includes office furnitureany sort of scrap pick-up, or the removal of old commercial equipment. This lowers the chances of injury while ensuring that there is nothing valuable that was missed. Thinking about doing this can also be very helpful when thinking about full-scale cleanouts for the future. 

 

Further, it’s always a good idea to call us once or twice during the middle of the process. Many contractors are great planners but collecting and removing junk and debris isn’t really their job. In many cases they may end up not having room to put anything; this will result in piles of materials in the backyard with the kids and pets, or the driveway, for all your neighbors to see. In the case of commercial businesses, this can mean piles of open-air materials, which can become a legal issue if someone wanders into the material area; or, the materials are moved around constantly, setting up the contractors to step on nails or receive other injuries. Calling Junk King once or twice in this stage ensures that your team is working as cleanly as they can, which speeds up the process and lifts spirits which a project is taking too long.

 

It’s always a good idea to call us as your project is finishing up too. As the bulk of the project finishes, calling us allows you to get one more chance at removing any unused material, but it also lets you have one more opportunity to commit to the design you’ve chosen. Sometimes after a building has been built, the interior orange that was chosen doesn’t look as happy as it had in our minds… meanwhile, the end of a demolition project having Junk King dumpsters is incredibly important. The end period for these projects is not the time where there is the most junk, but it is the time where clean-up is the most important. Ensuring that you start a new project with a clean slate to work with will do wonders for the new construction in the long term.

Know When to Throw and When to Refurbish with Junk King North Atlanta

 

There seem to be two types of old furniture lying around the general person’s home. In the first case, there are those pieces of furniture that have been inherited through parents or the loss of family/friends. In the second case, there are those pieces that have been either bought old or bought and kept for decades. Regardless of which circumstance your furniture was collected in, there are a few tell-tale signs that will tell you if the pieces need to go or need to be refurbished. 

 

Refurbish!

Refurbishing takes a long time and can be difficult depending on the size of the furniture you want to update. Small parts of furniture can always be removed and replaced easily, but larger pieces like the top and sides of a dresser cannot be easily replaced. In situations like that, you’ll need to either get rid of it or refurbish it by doing it yourself or by paying someone to do it for you. Refurbishing is a great way to continue to keep the furniture you have without it looking old or overused. 

 

You can tell if something needs to be refurbished if you examine the material of the furniture closely (or maybe not so closely). Woods and fabrics are the easiest to detect because of the qualities which both materials develop as they age. In the case of wood, consider the state of the outside of it—since the outside is open to damage and the elements unless you have some bugs wiggling around the interior of the wood, the most damage will be visible to your naked eye or touch. This means looking for things like (1) if the wood feels sticky to the touch or seems to pull in more dust and air debris than other similar surfaces in the same room; or (2) if you can see cracks in the veneer, finish, or paint; or (3) if you can see the results of damage or heavy use from the past years like watermarks, dents, scratches, or discoloration. Of course, small things don’t matter outside of visual aesthetics, but once the furniture begins to have more than a few bumps and scrapes, it starts to run into the territory of a potential structural issue.

Meanwhile, we can also review the elements of fabric that show signs of needing to be replaced, thrown out, or refurbished. Fabric, because it’s made of such soft material, in comparison to woods and metals, can often be forgotten about when individuals go to think about refurbishment in their homes. There are three common types of damage that fabrics suffer on a regular basis—most times, an older piece of fabric will accumulate all three damages over its lifetime, especially if the home has kids running around in it. The first and most common type of damage results from (1) everyday use, for example, the consistent ups and downs that people do as they sit, can pull up the fibers from the fabric and rip them out slowly. This is why our grandmothers always told us to sit, not slide, on the couches. The next most common damage comes from (2) sunlight or UV rays. In the same way that your skin is damaged by too much sun, fabrics can be damaged by it too. This is what happens when fabrics become bleached and hard. Finally, the next most common damage is done by (3) spills, drops, or falls. In all three of these cases, kids are the most common culprit, and unfortunately, not all fabrics are created to withstand the abuse that kids can put them through. This can result in tears, stains, rips, and tattering. The good thing about fabric refurbishing though, is that pieces can usually be bought premade, which is great if you don’t remember those sewing lessons you had when you were ten.

Throw it Out!

Let’s say, on the other hand, that you’ve been given great-aunt Debby’s walnut hutch for your tenth wedding anniversary. You really have two choices; either refurbish it and endure your ‘new, favorite’ furniture piece or get rid of it. Now, there are ways to tell if particular pieces of furniture are worth refinishing and keeping—but for the most part, there’s no reason to keep multi-decades-old furniture. This is especially true when furniture stops being a convenience and starts to become potentially dangerous.

Consumer Reports is best known for its never-ending goal of fighting for a fair marketplace. Most times, a person will recognize their company name from their mailed-out mini-books, detailing the best products and prices for a range of items. However, they are also widely known for their research and testing of products, as well as their opinion polls of products in everyday households. In August of 2021, Consumer Reports published a short article that called attention to potentially fatal, unstable dressers:

 

Right now, dressers sold in the U.S. are not governed by a mandatory stability standard. Furniture manufacturers operate under a voluntary standard, and they are not required to conduct any safety testing before putting a dresser on the market. Some manufacturers meet the standard, and others fall short, contributing to thousands of emergency room visits each year.

 

What does this have to do with whether or not you should throw out that old dresser? Let’s consider what is being said in this article. It is 2021 and there are no standards that a dresser must adhere to—this means the older your dresser, the less likely it is that they meet the standards for stability. The article also says that “between 2000 and 2019, 351 people of all ages were killed following a furniture tip-over incident; children account for 286 of those fatalities.” Clearly then, it is a better choice to just throw out that hutch from great-aunt Debby—especially if you have kids in the home. The same goes for all pieces of furniture which are unstable, tilted, leaning, or have been overused for the last few years. Then, of course, there are also the fatalities caused by non-furniture tip-overs, like the tip-overs that can occur from TVs, which accounted for 571 deaths from 2000 to 2019 (if you ever looked for a reason to get a new, lighter TV, this is your reason.) 

 

Save Your Back, Call Junk King North Atlanta to Remove Junk for You

 

When it comes to furniture in your home, there are countless ways you can end up hurt—especially if you are attempting to remove old or delipidated furniture by yourself or with a novice. In 2019, there were a reported 39.4 million preventable injuries in homes and communities in the United States. A significant amount of these injuries are from accidents like poisoning or falls—but there is a portion of these that account for thrown-out backs, twisted spine disks, or sciatica flares from both stress and incorrect weight lifting.
