Use Junk King For Old Recliner Removal

Almost every piece of furniture that is in your home was probably brought there by two movers. The bulk of that happened when you actually moved into the home. Throughout the years, you could have random pieces brought in by movers. It stands to reason then that anything that required two movers to bring in will need to movers to bring out. That is certainly true if you are replacing your old recliner. Junk King Atlanta is standing by to make that happen by providing you with a pair of exceptional movers to take care of the job.

 Signs of Recline

The first trouble with an old recliner is when it stops reclining. It is understandable that this will eventually happen just because of all the used at a good recliner gets from the family. It might have been eight or 10 years since you bought that recliner. In that time, improvements have been made on the recline function on many of these chairs. You can even get a recliner with remote control! Before that can happen, the old recliner has to be cleared out. This is not something that you want to tuck into another room or push out onto the back porch. Instead, that the team from Junk King cleared away once and for all.

The cost for Junk King service is based on how the truck gets filled up with all of your stuff. If you were only getting rid of a single recliner, then you would pay the minimum price for Junk King services. But you could take full advantage of that crew and truck to get rid of all the other unwanted items from your home. This is a great opportunity to clear the clutter from your garage. Just think of what a positive difference that will make.

When it is time to say goodbye to your old recliner, it is time to say hello to Junk King Atlanta. Call for your removal session today.

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.

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.

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.

A Property Cleanout Is No Challenge For Junk King

When it comes to categorizing rubbish removal jobs, a property cleanout is the biggest type of clean up that junk King Atlanta provides. This is where all the stuff from inside home gets removed. It can also mean clearing out yard waste from the property. These type of cleanups are also used when an estate is being put on the market. The goal with the cleanup is to have every item removed from the property leaving behind just completely empty rooms. At that point, the property owners can bring in their work crews to get those places ready for new occupants. That makes the property cleanout a very important part of the operation. This is something that the team from Junk King Atlanta can handle from start to finish.

All The Help Needed

Junk King is going to provide all the help it to clear out the rubbish or property in a single session. At a minimum, you will be assigned to movers for the task. However, if there is an excessive amount of rubbish that needs to be cleared away, then Junk King might determine extra movers will be a benefit. On like the professional movers that you hire when you go to a new home, you won’t be charge for the additional labor by Junk King. Whether you have two crew members or six you will still pay the same flat rate. That rate will always be based on how the truck gets packed up.

The mission for the Junk King team is to get as much as they can onto that truck. That can mean a lot of compact! But that also means you pay the lower end of the price can. You will know what this price is before the work begins and it will be a price that is not going to change at the end of the job.

You can take care of all of your property cleanup needs with one call to Junk King Atlanta. Make that call today.

Use Junk King For Washing Machine And Dryer Removal

A washing machine and a dryer work together to get the laundry done. Yes, you can occasionally hang up laundry in the back yard to dry it the “old school” way. But for the most part, your washing machine and dryer need to work in perfect harmony to make sure that the house is not overwhelmed by laundry. When one or both of those machines needs to be replaced, then it has to happen quickly. That is a task that the crew from Junk King Atlanta can take care of with one phone call.

Avoid the Porch

When it comes to getting rid of your washing machine and dryer you want to avoid the porch. You could probably maneuver those machines out the back porch just to get them temporarily out of the way. But that should not be their final destination. The team from Junk King can get those appliances swiftly removed from your property and loaded onto the back of their truck. At that point, the job is over unless you want to add more items to the truck. Your final fee will be determined by how much room is taken up on the back of the Junk King truck by your unwanted items. Will it be one third, one quarter, one half or the entire truck bed? Whatever the amount, you will know what it is before the work begins and there will be any surprise charges at the end of the job.

All of this can happen within 24 hours of the first call to make the Junk King for scheduling. It might also happen with the same day pickup if one is available when you call.

You won’t have to wait long to get rid of your washing machine and dryer when Junk King Atlanta is on the job.

Protect Your Landscape when Junk King Dumpsters Arrive

All dumpsters, from the biggest options to the smallest options, may come with some issues regarding your landscape. This is often because of how and where the dumpster needs to be placed to allow for traffic flow, and since not all driveways are created equal, this can potentially mean some crushed grass and landscaping. This is not usually an issue for residential homes as much as it is for commercial properties, but it is still good to be mindful of these tricks when ordering a dumpster.

When you go to order your dumpster, think deeply about its size and its placement. Junk King offers the smallest possible dumpsters in the market, but that doesn’t mean that the placement won’t matter. If you have a curved driveway or a very narrow one, there may be some overlap with the landscape beside the driveway.

In these cases, our goal is to get your junk loaded up and removed as quickly as possible to remove and prevent further damages from happening. You can help this process by thinking about this beforehand, and either adding coverage to that possible damaged areas, adding soil to those places to regrow whatever is crushed, or you can cover the area with something like plywood. However, it should be noted that leaving plywood in the same place for a long time can end up killing off plants beneath it.

Protect Your Driveway in North Atlanta – Tips from Junk King Removal Services

Those of us who are lucky enough to have a driveway, know that keeping it in good condition is a necessity. The Housing Associations which watch our homes make sure that it is in good condition in a variety of ways—including giving you possible fines for any damages that they see. Further, local codes may require that you have the dumpster parked in your driveway due to traffic concerns. All of this bundled up together means that you can only really put it in your space; keeping that space protected is a very important thing. No matter if your driveway is asphalt or concrete, your driveway can only take so much abuse before it retains damage—here are some tips to help prevent that damage for as long as possible when you order a dumpster.


Invest In Boards Like Plywood

This might not be the first thing you think about when it comes to protecting your driveway, but it is the best way to do it. Roll-away dumpsters concentrate all of the weight that is put in them straight into their lowest parts; this includes their wheels and their skeleton supports on the bottom. If the dumpster is heavily loaded, these points will sink further with the increased weight, and this can result in either dents from the wheels and supports when the dumpster is removed, or it can scrape the driveway during removal, leaving scratches and deep gashes. Placing plywood over the dumpster section will give you a buffer between the dumpster and the face of the driveway.


Think About Possible Stains

Have you seen those oil stains that get accumulated on driveways from old cars? Many HoAs end up giving fines to those people who have them. Other, more questionable stains can also garner attention from them too. If you have plywood below your dumpster, you already have a good chance of catching those run-away stains, but make sure that you consider other areas which could get them. Place and weigh a tarp at the lower end of your dumpster, if it is on an uneven driveway; place an additional tarp at the entrance of the dumpster, this way the tarp will catch any last-minute accidents (and those do happen).
