Back to School Junk Removal In Chattanooga

The students returning to Central High in Hamilton County discovered something missing this year. In fact, this item has been missing since 1968. That would be the school’s planned second auditorium. Most of the schools in this Chattanooga district have a gym and an auditorium. One is for sports and the other for assemblies. Not so with Central High but it wasn’t for a lack of planning. Recently uncovered architectural drawings and floor plans show that a sprawling “multi-purpose auditorium, with classrooms, music rooms and storage areas was to be built at a later date.” That was forty-five years ago and they’re still waiting.

Editor in chief of the school’s online newspaper, Ray Walker is on the case. “It’s disappointing that we seem to always get overlooked,” Walker said. “You look at other high schools, even middle schools, and they have better facilities than we do. Central is a great old school with a lot of pride, but people seem to forget about us.” He is putting the pressure on Hamilton County to come through with the new building.

Thanks to Ray’s investigation there is one commissioner who is standing up for the students. Chester Bankston of District 9, whose children graduated from Central said, “I will support them all the way. This community deserves what everyone else already has. We really need to build a new Harrison Elementary, but maybe there’s a way to do this project in a way that will benefit Central.”

Has your back to school experience this year been this dramatic? Hopefully your kids all got off to a good start. Now that they are back to cracking open the books, you can get back into your normal routines. This is a golden opportunity to give your home “the once over” with regard to getting rid of clutter.

Cleveland TN Junk Removal

There are many Cleveland TN residents that make a hobby of collecting things. Everything from comic books to spoons to vintage toys can become part of some collector’s hobby room. The value of those items is usually set by other collectors. In other words, if there is someone who would pay $1,000 for a Cabbage Patch Doll then that is what it is worth. Of course, collections are really about keepsakes. You don’t buy something with plans on selling it someday.

Often, there comes a time when a collector has to let go of their collection. Usually this happens to a guy who has to give up his sports room or Star Wars basement to make room for a girlfriend or children. When that happens, the collector has three choices: trash it, sell it or keep it. Trashing it is probably not going to happen because there is too much sentimental attachments to that collection. It might be difficult to let go of a collection but thanks to auction sites like eBay you might just find out how much it is really worth. As for keeping it, that would mean carefully boxing it up and putting it in storage. The issue then becomes do you have room for extra storage in your home?

Spring Cleaning Tips in Chattanooga

When you start your spring cleaning project you do so with good intentions. You want to get all the dirt and dust that has built up through the winter out of your home. But even the best intentions can diminish especially if you are doing the job by yourself. If you are your own cleaning crew than maybe you can break up the job over the course of a few weekends. Take a couple hours every Saturday morning taking on two rooms at a time. That way you won’t feel overwhelmed and can still enjoy part of your weekend. If you’ve got some help in the form of other family members than the goal should be to divvy up the chores evenly. Naturally, everyone should be in charge of cleaning up their own rooms.

You should also have a checklist for every room. Here is where you can get into the details. For instance, you’ll want to clean those ceiling fans and light fixtures. These are two overlooked areas. The same can be said for the back of things like refrigerators, stoves, dryers and washing machines. Pull these appliances out from the wall and have at it! This is where a good vacuum hose will be a big help.

If you’re getting help from a family crew you might benefit from offering a little reward at the end of their assignments. Even a beloved cake can go a long way towards motivating the crew.

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.

Home Downsizing Tips in Chattanooga

The idea of downsizing is gaining in popularity all across the country, including in Chattanooga, for a variety of reasons. Top among them is the idea that moving into a smaller home or apartment is more affordable. But there is also the quality of life issue to consider. As we get older, taking care of a large home becomes a bit more burdensome. This is especially true if all the kids have moved on and you’re left alone in a big empty house. In that case, downsizing makes perfect sense.

How much time do you devote each week to keeping your home clean? Now imagine that time is cut in half by living in a place without so many rooms. And we’re just talking about the typical dusting, sweeping and wiping down of counters. With the big spring cleaning projects you have windows to wash, drapes to clean, gutters to clear out… the list is endless. It doesn’t have to be that way if you make the decision to downsize. You’ll be able to have more time to dedicate to being with friends or your hobbies.

Then there is the money to think about. If you’re living in a home that is all paid for then consider yourself lucky! If you were to sell that home you’d have a very decent amount of money to retire on. Why wait? Moving into a smaller place will also cut back on electric, water and heating bills. That’s going to put even more money in your pocket. How would you like to spend that? Spoil the grandkids? A cruise? There are a lot of possibilities!

Finally, as we get older we often find it’s a bit harder to get around. You could relocate to a place without stairs and easy access to all kinds of shops, cafes and friendly neighbors all within walking distance.

Downsizing doesn’t have to overwhelm you, especially when you hire a team of professional junk haulers like Junk King Chattanooga to help with the process. These junk haulers will be able to haul out all of your unwanted stuff without you having to lift a finger. Even if you’re staying put, it’s still a great idea to bring in a professional team to help you clear out the clutter. These qualified junk haulers will have the right amount of heavy lifting experience and empty truck space to take care of anything you want tossed out. They’ll be able to sweep through your garage, basement or attic and carry out furniture, big kitchen appliances and any other bulky item that you can toss out in the garbage.

Yes, a home where a family grew up in has a lot of memories but you’ll be taking those memories with you wherever you go. The idea is for you to live a more stress free life and that can happen with downsizing.

Recycling News in Chattanooga

Paul Smith, the manager of the Chattanooga Market, recently told the Times Free Press in an interview that Chattanooga has always been a town with a strong entrepreneurial spirit. Mr. Smith went on to say that “in 2008 when the economy went down the Chattanooga market really thrive because you had all these talented people who really needed a way to make extra income.” Part of that extra income was generated by the many crafters who turned trash into treasure.

Another local business person who appreciates the type of artistry generated by local Chattanooga residents is Lynda Buckels who organized these years Chatty Crafty. Whis is an annual vintage and crafts show that attracts vendors and artists from as far away as Atlanta, Chicago and Washington DC.

Chattanooga Dirt Removal and Hauling

Yes, it’s true: you can grow bananas in Chattanooga! A recent contributor to the Chattanooga Times Free Press website offered up her tips for growing ornamental banana trees in a Chattanooga garden. Among the benefits of this type of leafy plant is that you don’t need fertilizer; just water and sunlight. These trees also grows extremely fast. In fact one banana tree plant that starts out 15 inches high could grow as full as 15 feet high with a little TLC. These types of banana trees are also resistant to pests which mean you don’t have to worry about spraying them with pesticides. When new leaves form the old ones will die sometimes even overnight. It’s best to remove the old leaves to make way for the new sprouts. When the winter comes you don’t have to dig up the plant.
