Chattanooga Junk Recycling

If you want to know what your neighbors got for Christmas, then taking a stroll on your street on garbage pickup day will give you a good idea. You’re sure to see all the boxes that held the TVs, appliances, game systems and other big items that Santa delivered. Even into January, the post-holiday recycling push is going strong. Beyond the boxes to throw out, many folks are still getting rid of old furniture, clothes and other items that have been replaced this past Christmas. Best of all, many of those objects can be repurposed and reused as long as you hire the right company. For fast junk recycling, that “right company” would be Junk King.

Junk King Chattanooga has gotten off to a great start for 2015. We’ve already been called to dozens of homes to help folks clear out all kinds of clutter. You can certainly discover a lot as you get your home ready for the holidays. Of course, being so busy means you don’t always have the time to take care of things like clearing out your garage or basement. Now that things have calmed down a bit, it’s time to turn your attention to your home decluttering and that is where Junk King will be a huge help.

Any time you set up an appointment with Junk King you’ll be assigned two hard working crewmembers who are going to do all the actual work. That includes removing any object from any room. You don’t have to lug something up the basement stairs or down from the attic. That is what Junk King is going to take care of. All you have to do is show them what you want taken away and it will be handled.

All the items that make their way onto the Junk King truck have the potential to be recycled or donated. This is all part of the complete Junk King package and it doesn’t cost any extra. In fact, you’ll only be playing a single, flat fee based on how much space your junk will take up on the back of the truck. That fee will cover all the labor, transportation and dumping fees. It will also be surprisingly affordable. When you want junk recycling done the right way, the only call to make is to Junk King.

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.
