Cincinnati Mattress Removal

When was the last time you had a picnic at a landfill? Never, right? In fact, you could probably go your entire life without ever stepping foot in a landfill. Why should you? Of course, that doesn’t mean something of yours won’t be left behind in a landfill. This is where most of your garbage goes and we can certainly tell a lot about people by what they throw out. By the time the archeologists of the future get around to sorting through our trash, we’ll be long gone. On the other hand, you could take proactive steps to protect the environment starting today. That means developing a zero-waste kind of attitude. It’s the philosophy that has been Junk King’s number one motivator.

As a professional junk hauling service, Junk King is on the front line of the battle to keep Cincinnati green. The goal is to keep as much out of local landfills as possible. Think about mattress removal. Although mattresses don’t have any type of hazardous materials like e-waste, they take up a lot of space. They aren’t necessarily biodegradable either. The best trash for a landfill would be anything organic. All the rest should be recycled. That brings us back to Junk King. They’ve been recycling since they collected their first truck full of junk back in 2005. Each Junk King franchise develops their own local partnerships with recycling facilities and charities. This way the Junk King crew knows what to keep an eye out for during their collections.

At the end of every workday, the Junk King crews return to the depot to sort through the junk. For mattress removal, this can mean separating the foam from the frame. Wood in one pile. Cloth in another pile. The metal frame would go into a third pile. When those piles have grown big enough, the crews will load up again and drop them off at the right recycling center. All of this work goes on long after they’ve collected your junk. It’s also work that you’re not going to be charged an extra for. It’s all part of the Junk King package.

In addition to having Junk King handle your mattress removal and recycling, let them take away the rest of the stuff that is cluttering up your home. One call gets everything gone!

Cincinnati Mattress Recycling With Junk King

The next time you go shopping for a mattress, you might be treated to an inside view of your bedding. Most mattress dealers have small cut away sections of the mattress that can show you exactly what is on the inside in terms of springs, coil or foam. It’s a handy selling tool that you’ll forget all about once you’ve settled into a good night’s rest. You should notice the difference right away on your new mattress. That’s because in the last eight years, your old mattress will have become lumpy and saggy. It’s just the way of things. If you’re sleeping on a mattress that is older than eight years then you’re really on borrowed time. Although many companies offer old mattress removal, you won’t get the kind of dedicated mattress recycling that you will when you hire Junk King. When it comes to old mattresses, Junk King loves to rip them apart!

Recycling is all about breaking down an item to its components. A bed can have a lot of components. The bed frame is straight up metal. That can be easily recycled as scrap. The box frame will be made of wood and cloth. Those two items have to be separated from each other before they can be recycled. As for the mattress, you’ll want to go back to that cut away sales tool so see how many components will be stripped out. Foam goes in one pile, cloth in another and metal in a third. This is how Junk King handles mattress recycling from start to finish.

If Junk King’s mattress recycling sounds labor intensive, it is. But that’s not something you have to worry about. The mattress breakdown occurs back at the Junk King depot. It might take a little extra time but you’re not going to be charged for that. In fact, you won’t be charged for any labor or transportation costs. You’ll only be paying a flat fee based on how much space your junk will take up on the back of the Junk King truck. It’s a very fair and affordable pricing policy.

Along with your mattress pickup, Junk King can haul away a lot more of your unwanted items in the same appointment. This is your shot to clear out the garage, basement and attic all at once. Take care of mattress recycling and junk removal the professional way with Junk King.
