Chattanooga Christmas Tree and Holiday Junk Removal

By all accounts Chattanooga is going to have a rough winter in terms of weather. By the time you read this article, there will probably be many storms that have swept through the area leaving behind rain and snow. Then there is the wind to contend with that can blow all kinds of things into your yard. The only good thing about this weather is that it’s perfect for staying inside where it’s cozy. With nothing else to do, this might just be the perfect time to start taking down the holiday decorations and preparing for the New Year by having a clean home. Your best ally for this winter project would be Junk King of Chattanooga.

Junk King is the professional business that specializes in all kinds of junk removal projects. Many local businesses have turned to Junk King to help them clear out construction waste but you don’t need an industrial size project to hire Junk King. Something simple like Christmas tree removal could be just the ticket to put Junk King to work for you. Wouldn’t it be nice to have someone come into your home to remove the tree instead of having to drag it outside in a storm? Junk King can handle that gig with no effort. While they’re at it they can also remove anything else you would like to finally get rid of.

Christmas is often a “out with the old and in with the new” kind of holiday. Many things like televisions, computers, vacuum cleaners and monitors are replaced with new models. In some cases there are even entirely new rooms of furniture. What will you do with the old stuff? You can hang onto it but that’s not a good use of your living space. Instead, why not let Junk King load up all that stuff onto the back of their truck and cart it off?

It won’t matter to Junk King Chattanooga what the weather is like outside; they’ll still get the job done even if that means taking away stuff from your backyard. Back in the fall, Junk King helped many Chattanooga residents clear out leaves, fallen branches and piles of dirt from their yards as they got ready for winter. In fact, they perform that kind of removal work all year round. So, if you’ve got something you want taken away before it becomes covered in snow let Junk King handle the job. All it takes is one call to the Junk King dispatch center to put your junk removal plan in action. Make that call today and you’ll have a clean home free of clutter in no time!

Chattanooga Recycling – Junk King can Help

The state of Tennessee is changing the way we think about recycling; at least when it comes to being a visitor. By now most of the local residents are already accustomed to recycling at home and in the workplace. We’re all getting into the habit of sorting our plastics, papers and soda cans out of the regular garbage and into the designated recycling bins. But what about out of town visitors who are making stops at welcome centers along I-75 in Chattanooga? Shouldn’t they be able to recycle? Now they can thanks to the efforts of the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation, the Tennessee Department of Transportation and the state Tourist Department. Those agencies have gotten together to put out recycling bins at all those rest stops which will go a long way towards improving the state’s overall recycling goals.

“Recycling away from home is one challenge that all recyclers face,” said Environment and Conservation Commissioner Bob Martineau in a news release. “Visitors to our state will now see receptacles with blue and green lids for recycling.” The rest stops included in the program are located at I-65 near Ardmore, I-81 at Bristol, I-24 at Clarksville, I-26 at Erwin, I-40 at Hartford, I-75 at Jellico, I-65 at Mitchellville and I-40 at Smith County.

Just to give you an indication of how successful a state program can be, since 1990, state workers have managed to recycle over 18,791 tons of mixed office paper. This has resulted in a huge savings to the tune of $564,000 in landfill disposal costs plus $213,000 in recycling revenue.

All of this adds up to the simple fact that recycling matters. But you can go beyond your weekly recycling pickup and make sure the majority of everything you throw out is recycled by contracting with a company like Junk King Chattanooga for your oversized junk removal. Junk King is a local TN business that supports the goals of the state and city by making junk recycling the foundation of their services. Even without an official mandate, Junk King already diverts a large portion of everything they collect away from local landfills and to certified recycling centers. By doing so they can officially help you reduce your own carbon footprint. That means that things like old furniture, refrigerators, stoves, mattresses, tires and e-waste won’t be tossed onto a dump pile to rot away in the sun. Instead, it will be properly dismantled and have all parts put to repurposing.

Why not let Junk King become your new recycling partner? Call them today to find out how they can help clean up your home, backyard or business. Keep Chattanooga clean the Junk King way.
