Colorado TV Disposal

One of the most popular times for buying a new television is fast approaching. No, it’s not Christmas or Father’s Day. Actually, it’s Super Bowl Sunday. The week before the big game, sales of big screen televisions go through the roof. This is especially true with folks who will be hosting a Super Bowl party. Nothing can beat watching the game on a big screen. And now with great deals on HDTVs, it will almost be like the players are right in your Colorado living room. Of course, once the game is over and the winners declared, you’ll still have that big screen TV to enjoy movies, games and all your regular TV programs. It’s like inviting over a special friend for one day then letting them move in for the rest of the year because they’re so “special.”

If you are measuring the wall in your family room for a new television, you’re probably doing it over the old one. That’s a good reminder that you’ll need to get rid of that old set.  Why not call in a local Colorado TV disposal crew like Junk King to take away that old set? Quite often, that old television is just dumped into another room. Maybe you think you’ve got a few more years left on it and it’s a shame to throw it away. But what if those other rooms already have a perfectly good working TV? Then what happens to the old set? It either ends up in the garage or basement or shoved into a closet. Is there a reason why you need to hold onto if you’re never going to use it again? Of course not. That’s why you should have it taken away.

You might think you could just sit it out with the rest of the garbage and be done. Actually, most municipal trash pick-ups aren’t allowed to take electronic waste like a television, computer or monitor. It’s not because those items aren’t considered garbage, but because they are actually consider hazardous when broken down. Televisions would fall into the category of e-waste or electronic waste. Along with any other electronic items, these pieces should be handled with care when it comes time to getting rid of them. In fact, most cities have their own special e-waste recycling facility. Don’t know where yours is? Don’t worry! When you hire a TV disposal team like Junk King Colorado, they’ll know right where to take that old TV of yours.

As long as you’re calling up a special crew to take away your TV, there’s no reason why you can’t toss out some other gear you’re never going to use again. What about an old computer tower? For every house with a new computer, there is probably an old computer stuffed into a closet. At the e-waste center, they’ll be able to break that computer or TV down to the basic elements and dispose of them properly. It will be just like they were never in your house at all!

Colorado Couch Disposal – Get Rid of Your Old Sofa

To be called a couch potato means you’re someone who likes to spend a lot of time on the couch. Let’s be honest, aren’t we all guilty of that on occasion? Is there anything better to do on a snowy Colorado day then to curl up on the sofa with a good book or catch up on all your recorded TiVo? Having company over is probably going to mean spending time on the couch. In many ways our couches become the central resting spot in our Colorado homes. Technically, that’s makes all of us a couch potato.

So, if we spend so much time on those couches, the next logical question would be what kind of shape is your couch in? Is it time for a replacement or an upgrade? If so, then you’re going to need to get rid of that old sofa to make room for the new one. That’s when it will be the perfect time to look up a Colorado couch disposal company like Junk King and make sure you won’t be crowded out by furniture you’re not using any more.

If your couch really is the central hub of your home, then it has probably taken a lot of abuse over the years. This abuse can come in the form of all kinds of accidental spills from wine to ice cream to peanut butter and jelly. Most times we can clean those stains with a quick mop-up, but if kids are involved all bets are off. Then there is the issue of pets. We either let our furry friends on the sofa or we don’t. If we do, then we’re opening the door for paw prints, dirt and snow. If we keep them off the sofa, guess what? They probably still climb on when you’re not home. Who could blame them? It is the most comfy spot in the house. All of these examples just go to show how you might be ready to swap out your couch.

When you make the switch and decide to call in an experienced couch disposal team like Junk King, there is no reason why you would have to stop at just getting rid of your old couch. If you’ve got haulers coming in with a big truck to take away one piece, ask yourself what else needs to go? Maybe there are a few chairs that have also seen better days. Perhaps there’s a rug that should be tossed out as well. Why not make it easy on yourself and let Junk King Colorado haul everything away that you no longer use or need?

If you are making a big switch you might find some lag time between moving out the old furniture with the arrival of the new. That’s why hiring a professional couch disposal company with experience will make all the difference. They know how important it is to get things right. This means they show up in the morning when your new furniture is coming in the afternoon. Simply put, the transition between the old couch and the new one should be a one day event!

If you live in Colorado simply give Junk King a call at 1-800-995-JUNK and they’ll have that old couch out of your house in no time.
