Everyone has junk to get rid of once in a while. And some of us more than others.
In Cincinnati, junk removal is a daily event, and for a city of more than 300,000 residents, that means a large amount of junk removal. But that’s just those of us who live in Cincinnati proper – if you include what is known as Metro Cincinnati, now you’re talking over 2,130,000 people.
As Junk King Cincinnati can attest, that’s a lot of junk!
And, when you need junk removal, Cincinnati has a few options for taking care of it.
Residential Junk Removal: Cincinnati’s Long History of Garbage
During the two decades from 1810 to 1830, the city’s population nearly tripled, growing from just over 9,600 residents to more than 24,800. It was in the middle of that period, just over 200 years ago, that Cincinnati was incorporated as a city in 1819.
A lot of water has gone under the bridge since then. Nine bridges, actually. And the oldest bridge still in use is the John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge between Cincinnati and Covington, built in 1867.
And it probably goes without saying that a massive amount of junk, debris and unwanted materials have actually ended up in the Ohio River at some point over the last 200 years.
Early in the city’s history, Cincinnati was the pork capital of the nation. And this led to some innovative municipal services options. From almost the beginning of the city’s existence, Cincinnatians threw everything in the middle of the street for consumption of the hogs that roamed everywhere.
And what about city dumps? Because of Cincinnati’s hilly terrain, these sprung up pretty much everywhere there were suitable low spots. But not only did these randomly created dumps stink, they regularly caught on fire, as well.
Finally, in the 1920s, the city government of Cincinnati established a citywide network of incinerators. Anything that burned went into the incinerators. If it didn’t burn, it went into the Gest Street Dump next to the Millcreek.
The incinerator system survived for almost 50 years.
Cincinnati Waste Disposal and Junk Removal Today
Today, there are just three active landfills in Hamilton County, Ohio, and they must serve a population of close to 800,000 people. This means that there is one landfill for every 270,000 people or so in the County.
And, if you live in or close by the City of Cincinnati itself, that means more than a third of the County’s population lives there, too. So, if you are equipped to do so and really want to take care of your own junk removal, it’s possible, just not simple.
In fact, when it comes to getting rid of anything that won’t fit in your residential trash or recycling bins, the other options are few. Yes, you can arrange with the City to have bulk items picked up, but only on their scheduled days, and only for residential properties that meet the definition of “dwelling.”
You can most likely find some guy with an old pickup truck to take your junk items away for you. However, it’s less likely that you’ll find one who is bonded, insured, and licensed for that kind of work in Cincinnati.
On the other hand, you can hire a professional junk removal firm for the job. And we humbly submit that calling Junk King Cincinnati is your best choice for reliable, affordable, and fast junk removal.
For safe, efficient, and green junk removal, Cincinnati, Fairfield, Blanchester, Harrison, Middletown, Goshen, and Clarksville can all rely on Junk King.
From Pigs, Pits, and Pyrotechnics to Green Junk Disposal
While it’s true that Cincinnati has come a long way from using pigs as municipal waste disposal units, we still have a long way to go to keep most of our junk out of landfills.
It’s easy for junk removal companies to simply send junk to landfills, but at Junk King Cincinnati we take the time and the effort to recycle or reuse as much junk that we possibly can.
In fact, Junk King is the only national junk removal company to operate with local sorting facilities and a goal of recycling 60 percent or more of everything we pick up. And it has always been our eco-friendly mission to make sure as much of your junk gets recycled or donated as possible.
Junk King Cincinnati is proud to be part of the greenest professional junk removal service in North America!
Junk King pioneered recycling-based junk removal back in 2005 and has been a “green” operation ever since. All our junk removal jobs are sorted for metals, e-waste, paper, household goods, textiles, and usable furniture and appliances in our recycling warehouses.
And Junk King Cincinnati is working to help keep our planet, our city, and our neighborhoods, green and clean for the generations to come.

Not at Junk King Cincinnati.
