Declutter to Start Your Retirement in Chattanooga, TN

What is your first priority for starting your retirement? Is it spending a week sleeping in late? Planning a cruise? Finally planting the garden you always wanted? Retirement is a period of adjustment but it’s all for the best. One thing that could help you get to the “good stuff” is to take care of all those messy chores that have been piling up around the house. If junk removal is on that list, then it will be easy to declutter with the help of Junk King.

The sooner you call Junk King, the sooner they can send a team out to handle the removal of your unwanted stuff. For most appointments the standard two-man Junk King moving crew is all you’re going to need. However, if you’re looking to get rid of a lifetime of accumulated stuff, then Junk King will be happy to send over even more workers and trucks. They want to make sure you get everything cleared in a single appointment even if that means staying at your place all day (it has happened!).

Keep in mind that you would never be charged for any extra labor on those big cleanup jobs. That’s because Junk King’s pricing policies are focused on the truck bed. It all comes down to how much space your junk is going to occupy on the back of the truck. Will it be one third, one-half, one quarter or the entire truck? That estimate is going to determine your final cost; not by the pound. When you agree to that price, the team from Junk King is going to get busy removing your stuff. All you’ll be doing is pointing to those things you want taken away. The Junk King crew will do all the work.

As an added bonus, Junk King is going to insure that your stuff is disposed of in a responsible manner. Along with help you declutter, Junk King is dedicated to keeping Chattanooga green. If they can avoid going to a landfill, then they consider that a good day. Instead, they’ll make extra drop off trips to local recycling centers and charities. You might be done with your stuff but it could still be put to use. Having Junk King help declutter your home is the quickest way you can start having real fun in your retirement!

Hit Zero Waste with Junk King Chattanooga

For the coming year, many Tennessee schools have their eyes on a zero waste prize. These schools are participating in the Good Sports Always Recycle program aimed at promoting recycling in grades K-12. Ten schools will be awarded $1,000 each with a special prize of $1,500 going to the school designated as “Sustainability Steward.”

“In order to have a lasting impact on our environment, we must not only educate our children on the importance of sustainability, but we should be actively showing them what it means to reduce, reuse and recycle. Encouraging them to come up with innovative solutions empowers them to be personally invested,” said Hanneke Counts, director of Environmental Affairs at Eastman, the organization behind the program. “This school challenge provides a little friendly competition between elementary, middle and high schools across Tennessee, and we hope it will generate excitement surrounding recycling and environmental stewardship.”

If you have a kid in school that is participating in the program, you might be asked how your home can become zero waste. In addition to stepping up collecting all your kitchen recyclables, you can also hire Junk King to help dispose of the big stuff. With Junk King on the job, you can depend on a “green way” of doing things.

Junk King trains all their workers to spot those items that can be recycled. Items like scrap metal, lumber and concrete are easy to grind up and be reused. However, recycling also extends to making donations at charity. Anytime you can keep furniture, clothes and other household goods out of local landfills, you’ll be ahead of the game. That is just what Junk King will do.

Even though the sorting at the Junk King depot and additional drops offs mean extra work, you won’t be charged for the service. Junk King offers a flat rate based on volume and not weight. It all comes down to how much space your junk will take up on the back of the truck. Even if your junk takes up more space than the original estimate, you’re still only going to pay the low price. It’s a fair price that can’t be beat. You’ll be amazed at how fast your junk can get cleared out! If you want to take your home to zero waste, then you need to be working with Junk King.
