How To Handle Your Garbage Overflow

In six years, the Rapp Road landfill that services most of Albany will reach its full capacity. That means that all garbage collected beyond that point will either have to be recycled or shipped somewhere else. Those potential shipping costs are what the local legislators are worrying about. They’re considering a “pay-as-you-throw” system. The more you toss out, the more you’ll be charged. Think of it as a power bill for your trashcan. Apartment buildings are already being hit with a $180 per unit trash collection charge. All of this means you need to find a better way to handle your garbage overflow. That is a job that is tailor-made for Junk King Albany.


Junk King Albany is part of a national chain of professional junk haulers. Although their service is not free, it isn’t unreasonable. Junk King’s pricing policies are based on volume. It all comes down to how much space your junk is going to fill on the back of the truck. This isn’t a “by the pound” price. That would be way out of control. Instead, the flat fee that Junk King charges includes all the labor, the transportation and those dumping charges.

One of the ways that Junk King is able to keep their prices so low is because they avoid going to the landfill. Any time a truck rolls up to Rapp Road they’re going to be weighed and hit with a big dumping fee. Instead, Junk King prefers to drop off its collected garbage overflow to recycling centers or charities. If you’re done with your old sofa, that doesn’t mean it can be reused by someone else. This is the kind of eco-friendly disposal policy that might just help Albany’s landfill squeeze out a few more months of use.

Your junk removal session will be completed by two very competent movers. This is the crew that is going to make sure you don’t strain your back. It doesn’t matter where you might be keeping your junk. The Junk King crew will gladly climbs stairs and crawl into crawl spaces.
