Junk Hauling in Cobb County: How it is Saving the Environment

Junk hauling

What is Junk Hauling and How is it Aiding the Environment?


Junk and junk hauling are as old as property rights themselves—that is, as long as there has been someone to say “that’s mine” there has also been someone else to say “let me move that for you”—or, that’s what the general idea of junk hauling is. However, junk hauling should not be confused with moving crews, because moving crews are meant to specifically move items, not dispose of them like a removal crew. 


Junk hauling specifically refers to the practice of picking up and moving…well, junk, but also trash, garbage, debris, and everything from furniture to old equipment and everything in between. How does something like junk hauling help the environment? It mostly depends on the type of services that are available for hire from the removal crew. Simply taking your junk to the landfill is obviously not going to result in aiding the environment—however, choosing to move with a professional company that is able to provide aftercare in the form of green initiatives after the removal—will assist in aiding the environment. 


full service junk removal


Over the course of a year, the average person will accumulate at least a thousand pounds worth of junk, trash, and waste. This is not a problem as long as there are people available for assistance in the removal of that junk (or at least the overwhelming packaging that the junk comes in). When it comes time for you to call on junk hauling and removal assistance, call on Junk King first. 


Junk King was founded in 2005 with two premises that have helped drive the company into an industry leader across North America. The founder wanted to create a junk removal company whose main focus would be twofold: providing an unsurpassed customer experience while also providing an eco-friendlier solution for the large amount of waste that is thrown out every year. Since Junk King opened its doors, they have been awarded distinctions unique only to ourselves—for example, Junk King is known as North America’s greenest junk removal service, and also known as being one of the highest-rated customer experiences. For your Cobb County junk removal, contact Junk King today for a truck or a dumpster tomorrow!



The Pros of Junk Removal


There are many benefits of junk removal, especially when you hire professionals to do the work for you. Not only that, but the benefits also affect those in your local area too. Thankfully, you don’t really need ‘a reason’ to hire professionals—but it is worth noting that people often contact removal companies because of a need for immediate assistance, or physical assistance. 


The Pros of Junk Removal:

  • The work can be done faster, safer, and better by hiring professionals.
  • Save money by not paying for your own gas or labor costs to your family. 
  • Regain the space that you would have otherwise not had—decluttering is a huge motivator once you get started.
  • Reduce your environmental footprint by utilizing the recycling facilities to their fullest. (Junk King recycles at least 60% of every haul that they remove!)
  • Some removal services will also have the option to donate some of your junk to charities—in this way, you could not only protect the local environment, but you can also invest in the local economy. 
  • Professionals are also able to remove large-scale or heavy items, saving your back from getting pulled out while also reducing the likelihood of related injuries. 
  • Professionals also are equipped and trained to be able to handle both difficult and emergency situations—what would you do if someone fell while inside a dumpster? 
  • Some removal companies offer saving events, which can greatly assist in getting your junk taken away without the steep price tags. 
  • The process is simple and straightforward, plus you can order assistance right from your phone. 




The Cons of Junk Removal


As with every service available for hire, there are some cons to junk removal, such as the inability of the industry to police what actually happens after your junk is removed. Only some of the removal companies even claim to recycle, so it is a safe bet that non-professional removers could just take your junk straight to the landfill. Additionally, there is not a lot of room for things like full-scale breakdowns of complex items, this means that even if a removal company wanted to create and follow their own green initiatives, they would be limited by the room, the tools, and the time to be able to do that. Luckily, however, there are some removal teams that go the extra mile and tend to things such as the time-consuming breakdowns of complex items like washing machines and refrigerators.

The disadvantages of removing waste are common issues that all junk removal companies struggle with—it is difficult to provide answers for all junk hauling problems:


The Cons of Removing Waste:

  • Professionals are expensive: The most common issue with professional junk haulers is that they are often more expensive than non-professional options. Professional haulers are more expensive because along with being highly trained and having a lot of specialized tools, they are also insured and bonded—none of which any of the random Craigslist haulers are. 
  • Many professionals charge by volume: A significant number of junk haulers charge their removals based on the final volume of the used services. This can mean the volume of a waste bag, a disposal truck, or a roll-away dumpster. Companies who charge by volume are sometimes meant to be avoided as you can quickly incur additional fees when the final costs are calculated. 
  • Not all professionals are created equal: Depending on the service available and how it suits your needs, you may find that there is a vast difference between options. For example, while one company may tout its online reviews—another may actually end up being more customer-friendly than them. Thus it can be difficult to find the right option for you, online review sites are the easiest and best way to manage all of your options (and their potential costs). 




How to Choose a Junk Removal Service for Your Needs


Junk King Cobb County


There are many things to consider before picking your professional removal service. A lot of services only support one or two options for removing your junk, so picking the right one will make all of the difference to your final experience. We suggest that you start thinking about your options by looking at some reputable review sites like Home Advisor, Angi’s, or Moving.com. For each company that you see, consider the following and how well you know the company’s practices before you schedule a quote.


How to choose a company for your needs, consider: 


  • If the service takes green initiatives such as aftercare recycling; Junk King was partially founded on the premise that junk removal could be greener—as such, at least 60% of all of the hauls completed by Junk King are recycled, reused, donated, or repurposed.
  • If you are a commercial business owner or a property owner, you should consider if the company’s removal fleet is large enough to accommodate all of your removal needs. Many removal services will be willing to pull in trucks from surrounding locations in order to fulfill a client’s needs. 
  • Most removal companies have something special about them—by finding out what that special thing is, you have a far greater chance of getting the exact service that you need for your removal or project. For example, Junk King is known for being green, but we are also known for being very customer-oriented while providing budget-friendly solutions to both residential and commercial owners.

Everything You Need to Know About Dumpster Rental in Cobb County, Georgia

Mattress Disposal in Marietta, dumpster rental

What is a Dumpster and Why is it Important to Rent One?


Dumpster rental refers to the practice of ‘renting’ a dumpster for a set period of time, and after that time has been served the dumpster is collected by the parent company and the interior wastes are removed or disposed of. Rental dumpsters are also called roll-away dumpsters, as most have wheels on the bottom that let the entire structure be ‘rolled’ to a new location or onto a removal truck. 


Dumpster rentals are almost exclusively handled by junk disposal service and they are sometimes offered as an option by weekly trash removal services. They are usually built with steel casted walls that can be power washed. Additionally, they typically come in only a few sizes that can be chosen from. These sizes are usually representative of the type of load that the individual dumpster can handle as far as weight goes. The weight that can be loaded into a dumpster is important, as a lot of dumpster rentals base their final prices on the overall weight of the load.

There are generally three types of dumpsters that are available for the public (residential and commercial) to rent. These dumpsters are what you might typically see, they are often large and overtly dirty:

How Do I Find a Reliable Dumpster Service in Cobb County?


self service dumpster rental services


There are many ways that you can find a dumpster removal service in your local area; you could try searching online for ‘dumpsters near me’, or ‘Cobb County trash removal service’. However, it’s important to note that many of the results may be sponsored, not necessarily the best options for your particular needs. So how do you find a reliable dumpster in Cobb County? We suggest looking up reviews for disposal services, rather than searching for a specific service directly.

For example, there are many review sites online which have done a lot of the research and guesswork for you, so that all you have to do is read to become well informed enough to make a smart decision for your home or business project: 


  • DIY Homeowner Hero: offers a positive review of Junk King services, including asking some specific questions like costs, deals, and locations. 
  • Moving.com: offers a positive review of Junk King services, while going into depth about the history, goals, and approaches that Junk King takes with every removal job. 



What are the Benefits of a Local Dumpster Service in Cobb County Georgia?


Junk King Cobb County


There are a lot of benefits to using a local dumpster service in Georgia. We believe that the best junk removal services are the ones that provide you with all the assistance you could need during every step of the removal process, every time. Additionally, some benefits continue even after your junk is gone. From start to finish, there are numerous reasons to choose your local waste removal service:


  • You save money by removing fuel and labor costs. 
  • You could also save time and effort by having professionals do the work. 
  • You are investing in the local economy and job availability for your area. 
  • Some removal companies (Junk King) have aftercare initiatives that result in recycling a significant amount of junk and trash whenever possible. 



How Much Does it Cost to Rent a Dumpster from an Atlanta-Area Company?


According to Home Advisor, the average cost to rent a dumpster is between $200 – $800 per week. They had this to say about removals and dumpsters prices in Atlanta, GA


Dumpster rental costs $380 on average, or between $292 and $480. Most companies charge $200 to $800 per week depending on the dumpster’s size. Long-term rentals cost $1,000 to $3,000 for a month or more. Rental usually includes dump fees, which average $40 to $65 per ton. 


These numbers are based on the normal operations of junk removal companies—this means they are mostly numbers created from analyzing the average cost of a weighed dumpster. This is an important aspect to remember about these numbers because when placed side-by-side with the average numbers in relation to Junk King’s costs, Junk King seems to come away as costing more than the national average—but this is a misnomer. 


The two services that are provided by Junk King are the self-service, with the Junk King MINI, and the full-service, with a Junk King Big Red Truck and crew. In the case of the truck, the competitors that provide a similar-sized option for the same price are not accurately displaying the differences—the Junk King Big Red Trucks are actually 20% larger than the competitor’s option. Meanwhile, in the case of the MINI, competitors offer a smaller-sized dumpster for a similar cost; but what they do not include as a factor is the pricing model of Junk King. In both the full-service option and the self-service option, you only pay for the space you use. This means that you can be quoted for more than what you actually end up paying. Use less of the dumpster or truck, and you can come away with a cheaper cost. Search for ‘rent a dumpster near me’ to find your local removal options.
