How did you spend this last Earth Day? Hopefully, you took a moment to think about the ways you’ve been reducing your carbon footprint and how you might improve on that. The Orange Grove Center teamed up with a bunch of local businesses to host a special Earth Day recycling event. On Monday, April 22 (the official Earth Day day) they had volunteers standing by from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. to accept any recyclable items you could drop off. Best Buy was collecting old TV and Fast Break Athletics was taking in used tennis shoes. There were also stations set up to gather paper, cardboard, plastics and just about anything else that could be reused and repurposed. If you missed that collection day you don’t have to wait another year to get rid of your junk. Junk King Chattanooga is standing by to lend a hand or two plus a truck.
One of the major pluses of hiring Junk King for your junk removal project is that they’ll come to you. If you can’t fit the stuff in your car what good is a drop-off day? And if that drop-off day is when you work then you’re doubly out of luck. When you set up a pick-up appointment with Junk King you’ll be doing it around your schedule. Junk King Chattanooga is all about accommodation so what works best for you is what will work for them. Having Junk King come to your home means you don’t have to lift anything. No matter where in your home or yard the junk is, the JK crew will pick it up and load it onto their truck.
When it comes to getting rid of electronic waste, Junk King really is the only sensible way to go. You can’t throw out things like an old computer in the trash. Not only is it bad for the environment it’s also against city ordinances. All of your old computers, monitors, TVs, DVD players, VCRs, fax machines and copiers have to be taken apart piece by piece. Those pieces are then sorted and trashed the right way which won’t harm the environment.
Junk King Chattanooga is extremely proud of the work they’ve done on behalf of the environment. A large percentage of everything they collect gets recycled or refurbished. If Junk King had their way, there would be no need for a landfill! That should be everybody’s goal for Earth Day and every other day!
One of those modern conveniences we don’t give much thought about is our stove. Of course, when that stove is on the fritz it’s all we can think about! Whether you’re a amateur master chef or merely the occasional hot dog boiler it helps to have the right equipment in your kitchen standing by at the ready. If you’re old stove has seen better days it might be time to head out to the appliance store to see what’s the latest and greatest in stoves.
Like you’re other major kitchen appliances the majority of stoves come in the same sizes, give or take a few cubic inches. Of course, you should still measure the space where your stove will be sliding into. Most freestanding ranges are 30″ wide. The more professional you go with your stove the wider the cooking space. Next you’ll want to consider gas or electric. Both have their advantages but most cooks prefer the gas stovetops because of the ability to better regulate the heat.
The basic and most economical type of oven is the single conventional oven. The question you want to ask yourself is whether or not you’ll new stove will be a convection oven. This utilizes air to circulate during the cooking and baking process and allows for a more even cooking. There is even a trivection oven that combines a microwave, conventional and convection oven for the ultimate in cooking equipment. What about your cook top or range top options? Electric tops come with coil cooking spaces or clear glass tops. With the clear glass tops look for designs that have a no-drip raised edge to keep any boil-overs contained.
The standard stovetop has four burners: two small and two large. You can add a grilling feature with an easy to adapt cast iron appliance that fits right over the burners. That way you can bring the flavor of the grill right into your kitchen. As for finishes, you no longer have to be stuck with a standard white or stainless steel model. You can find stoves in a wide array of colors to match your kitchen decor.
What you won’t get with your new stove purchase is removal of the old stove. For that job you’ll be better off calling Junk King Chattanooga to handle the removal and disposal.
