Chattanooga Grill Disposal and Recycling

Around Chattanooga folks take their barbequing very seriously. For many it comes down to a simple choice: Dry rub or marinade. With the dry rub, a combination of spices (often secret ingredients) is rubbed onto the meat of choice and then it is slow roasted, grilled or smoked. With the marinade option, it’s the same “secret recipes” but these are more sauce oriented. The best option is to soak the meat in the marinade of choice for several hours. In some cases even an entire 24 hour period. You’ll find passionate devotees on both sides of these BBQ equations.

There are also equally passionate opinions about the types of preferred grills. Again there are two basic choices: Propane or natural burning. Old school grilling consists of charcoal briquettes doused with light fluid then set ablaze. When the flames die down, the charcoal continues to burn bright and provide the heat source of for the BBQ. It’s that initial “flame up” that is cause for great concern and also the spark that has ignited many fires that got out of control. Some folks just can’t resist pouring heavy with that lighter fluid. Perhaps that’s why the propane grill grew in popularity.

With a propane grill you simply turn on the gas from a stored tank and spark up your grill much like you would turn on your stove top. The benefits of propane grilling are that it provides an even and consistent heat source. What might be lost is a distinct flavor found through smoking your BBQ with different types of wood chips. Actually, there are many propane BBQ grills can allow you to add wood chips for that smoky flavor. You can even put chips together in some aluminum foil, get them damp and create the same smoker effect when you close the hood of your BBQ. Keep in mind that smoking BBQ is not always about heating BBQ. The flavors infused into the meat come from the smoke of the wood not the flame.

No matter which type of BBQ method you prefer, you might discover as you head out for your first official BBQ of the summer that your grill is in bad shape. Even if you have kept that grill covered through the winter, it was still subjected to some harsh elements. If you weren’t as diligent with your “after grill” clean up then there might also be lots of charred gunk piled up on your grill which is certainly not appetizing. All of this means you could be in the market for a new grill. Don’t let getting rid of the old grill stand in your way. Hire a team of professional junk haulers like Junk King Chattanooga to take away that old grill and you’ll have plenty of room for you new model. Those same junk haulers can also make quick work of any other stuff you want taken away. This makes buying a new grill the perfect excuse to get rid of all your junk. That’s a winning scenario in anybody’s book!

Chattanooga Apartment Junk Hauling

Thanks to the burst housing bubble, the real estate pendulum has swung away from homeowners and back towards apartment renters. This means that apartment space is at a premium and rent prices are ticking up. If you’ve got an apartment you’re happy with then hold onto it! Maybe your apartment isn’t all it should be. Are you feeling too crowded? The real problem could be summed up in a single word: Junk. You don’t have to be a homeowner to have a lot of junk. Apartment residents can be hanging onto just as much useless stuff; you’ll just notice it a lot more in an apartment!

In some cases, folks living in apartments have actually made the move from a bigger home to a smaller, more manageable space. Unfortunately, they’ve brought all their stuff with them. In another example, a person could be renting a two bedroom place and turned that second bedroom into their own private storage locker. In either case, that’s not a good use of the space. The obvious solution is to get rid of all that junk and you can tackle that project with the help of a team of professional junk haulers like Junk King Chattanooga.

Professional junk haulers will often show up for the job in pairs. This means moving any bulky item won’t be a problem. Apartments also come with stairs. Again, this isn’t a problem for the professional junk hauling crew like Junk King. They’ll do all the heavy lifting and the stair climbing!

Clearing out the clutter in an apartment could free up space that you’ll be able to use for more practical purposes. Get rid of that old loveseat and you can make room for a desk for study or a home office. Swap out that huge dining room table for a smaller version and you’ve got room for a china cabinet. The best apartments come with storage space but here too you might be overwhelmed with junk. Whether it’s a compartment in the garage or a single bedroom closet, you don’t want it overflowing every time you open the door. The same useful principle applies. In other words, if you’re not using it then it’s not worth hanging onto.

When the junk is cleared from your apartment, you can look at that space with fresh eyes. If you’ve been a good tenant then your landlord might not object to having you make some cosmetic improvements like a new paint job. Instead of going with the traditional (and often boring) white shade, perhaps you can think outside of the box with some bolder colors for your rooms. A key search of the internet can fill you up with plenty of inspiration to turn a drab apartment into a cozier environment. Here’s the bottom line: If it makes sense for you to live as a renter as opposed to an owner that doesn’t mean have to live with junk!
