The Albany Times Union recently wrote a great piece on Junk King. From the article:
Porter’s crews see this firsthand. They’ll clean out an entire home, office or storage space, then turn around and haul individual pieces of furniture to the Habitat for Humanity Capital Region ReStore at 70 Fuller Road. A percentage of the hauling fee is also donated to the nonprofit.
In an effort to be as eco-friendly as possible and avoid trips to the landfill, 80 percent of materials collected are recycled.
“I think people feel very cathartic when they get rid of stuff,” Porter said. “It’s like a new start.”
