Birmingham Mattress Disposal

“If you see something, say something.” That is the advice offered by the police to help curb crime. It also applies to illegal dumping. Recently, two teens were seen dumping tires at the Talladega National Forest. This particular illegal dumpsite already had 100 tires in the pile so the teens thought they could just add a few more. They were wrong. Now, they’re facing up to six months in jail and a $5,000 fine. Believe it or not, illegal dumping is a huge containment issue for Talladega and many other national parks across the state. In fact, last year Calhoun County officials discovered 82 illegal dumpsites that contained over 129 tons of garbage. That’s a lot for the city and state to clean up.

Birmingham Hot Tub Removal

Did you “inherit” a hot tub? This could have been something stuck in your backyard and left over from the previous owner.

Perhaps you’d like to swap out that old hot tub for a new model. Before you do that, you can actually take a “wet test” at a hot tub showroom. Many hot tub dealers set up working tubs and invite customers to slip into their bathing suits for a soak. What better way to feel out the jets and the seats?
