Many folks in Chattanooga have jumped on the recycling bandwagon but there is one construction company that has taken the recycling philosophy to a whole new level: They’ve actually recycled entire homes. Collier Construction is putting the finishing touches on a six-home development project. Typically, Collier would build custom homes from the ground up but one at a time. For this project, they took existing properties and refurbished them into brand new homes. This meant a little structural recycling. Remember that recycling is simply reusing raw material. That works for plastics and home foundations!
How much recycling do you do on a regular basis? Most of us have a blue pin where we can chuck out soda cans, cardboard, newspapers and plastic containers. Once you’ve gotten into the routine of sorting out your garbage you really don’t give it a second thought. However, every bin of recyclable material is helping reduce the volume at area landfills and that’s good news for Chattanooga. Although you can certainly get rid of a lot of trash in your recycle bin you don’t have to stop with that weekly pickup. There is a lot more you could be recycling but to accomplish that you’ll need to hire a professional junk removal company like Junk King of Chattanooga.
Among the big items that Junk King can recycle are things like stoves, dishwashers, dryers, washing machines and refrigerators. Yes, the big stuff and that’s what you need Junk King. With every junk removal appointment, Junk King will be sending out a two-man crew and truck big enough to hold an entire kitchen worth of appliances. That same crew can also remove any other oversize items you want tossed out. Things like old sofas, mattresses, swing sets or patio furniture can all go on the back of that truck. How much do you have to throw out?
Whatever you’re getting rid of, Junk King will strive to have it recycled. Junk King doesn’t do the actual recycling but they make sure those items get to the proper facilities to handle the job. In some cases this might be a bit of a drive but that’s nothing you have to worry about. Once the Junk King truck is loaded up you’ll never have to think about your junk again. Best of all, you’re not going to be charged extra no matter how many drop off stops the crew has to make. You’re only fee will be based on the amount of space your junk takes up on the truck. That’s a very fair and affordable way of getting rid of and recycling your appliances!
A small scrap metal recycler is having a hard time setting up a business in Alton Park. That’s mainly because their competition is firing up the locals to make sure they can keep the market all to themselves. One of the big selling points for the existing company is that they’ve already invested over a million dollars in eco-friendly equipment. The small company is crying foul saying they can be just as eco-friendly and the city council should let the people decide by voting with their wallets. Who knew that setting up a scrap metal recycling business could be so full of drama? If you have some scrap metal you want to get rid of you don’t have to step into this heated battle. Instead, you can just hire Junk King Chattanooga to take it away and they’ll know just where to dump it off!

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. These are the junk removal specialists who provide the manpower and truck space to haul away a bulky appliance like the stove. If it takes two people to bring it in, it’s going to take two people to take it away. After loading up your stove, the Junk King Chattanooga crew can also haul off any other junk item you want to get rid of. This is the perfect opportunity to finally get rid of all your clutter. You’ll also be able to finally clean behind the stove!
When it comes to bulky item pickups the city of Chattanooga has a program called Trash Flash. You can put an item out on the curb, call up a dedicated hotline and schedule an appointment pickup. However, there are a lot of limitations with this program. First, there is the long list of things they won’t pickup. This includes 55-gallon drums, auto parts, brick, building materials, concrete, dirt, drywall, lumber, recyclables, tile, tires and insulation. In other words, if you’ve got waste leftover from a remodeling job you’re out of luck with this program.
The next big issue is the fact that you have to drag whatever oversize item you want to get rid of out to the curb. Suppose you have a sofa you want to toss out. Can you carry that out to the curb by yourself? Maybe you can get help but then you’ll have a sofa sitting on your curb. Just because the city has a number to call doesn’t mean you’re going to get a fast response. That sofa could end up sitting outside for several days. If a storm comes through the area (and there is always the chance of that!) there is going to be even bigger problems. Now you’ll have a soggy mess sitting on your property. This isn’t the thing you want to show your neighbors. There is a more efficient process for picking up bulk trash items and that would be hiring Junk King Chattanooga to handle the assignment from start to finish.
You’ll have to identify the pieces you want removed from your home or yard but that’s all you’ll have to do. There is no need for you to pick up any piece and move it to the curb.

There is also practically no limit to what Junk King will remove. Take another look at all those items on the “not wanted” list. All of those things can be loaded onto the Junk King truck for removal. You can also add to that list any e-waste or heavy kitchen appliances. When it comes to bulk trash removal don’t leave anything to chance; call Junk King Chattanooga and get the job done right.
If you’ve joined a gym to honor your New Year’s resolution good for you! But not all resolutions have to be about getting into shape (not that there is anything wrong with that!). Why not adopt a New Year’s resolution for your home? One popular resolution is to give all your appliances a review and/or upgrade.
Start with anything that has a filter such as a vacuum cleaner, furnace or air conditioner. Gather up all those dusty filters and swap them out for clean ones. Next, check the seals on your fridge, over or freezer. You might not notice if you don’t look but those seals could be worn down which could be getting in the way of that appliance working properly. Speaking of your freezer, is it in need of defrosting? Don’t wait any longer!
This could also be the time to check all the wires and electric cords you’ve got running through your home. A check-up like this is especially vital if you’ve got pets around who might have chewed on some of these wires. As you make a review of your appliances you might notice that some of them are beginning to wear down. Maybe they’ve simply stopped working. This means it’s really time to get rid of those items. The same could probably be said for a lot of other junk you’ve got taking up space in your home or yard. Ask yourself, “Do I really need that?” If the answer is no then why hold on that thing.
Too bad you can’t just “blink” and have all that junk disappear. Actually, if you hire Junk King Chattanooga you can make that stuff disappear and it would be in the blink of an eye. That’s because Junk King handles all the work of lifting any heavy object and loading it onto their truck. They will then take that item to its final resting place whether that’s a recycling center or landfill. All of that work is part of the complete Junk King package. That would be the work crew, the truck and the dumping that you don’t have to bother with. You’ll also only be paying for the amount of space your junk takes up on the truck. No rental fees, dumping charges or labor costs. What could be better than that?
By having Junk King Chattanooga do their thing around your home, you’ll be kicking off the year to a clean start. Isn’t that the best way to begin things? Call Junk King today and set up your junk removal appointment.
