Colorado Springs Bulk Pickup

This past summer saw the most destructive fire in Colorado history sweep through the area. In this inferno’s wake 350 homes were left destroyed in Colorado Springs alone. Recently, Mayor Steve Bach reported on the cleanup efforts and was happy to state that significant progress has been made in the Mountain Shadows neighborhood since the Waldo Canyon Fire. There are still 21 homes of 347 that still require a demolition permit to finally clear out what is left on their lots. However, considering the level of damage that this area incurred, the pace for this clean up has been incredibly fast.

“There was a similar fire in Boulder,” Mayor Bach told a local newspaper. “That happened two years ago and we are considerably ahead in our clean-up stages.” Not everyone has decided whether or not to rebuild their homes. With that void in development, it’s not clear what Mountain Shadows might look like as a community in the years to come. The hope is that all of the residents will be able to return and rebuild.

It is certainly a devastating experience to have a home and possessions reduced to rubble. After picking through the remains all that is left, there is a massive cleanup that can only be handled with a professional crew. This puts our own cleanup needs in perspective but that doesn’t mean we also can’t benefit from a professional crew. Such a crew would be on hand from Junk King Colorado Springs. This is the Colorado Springs based business who has already been lending their support for the wild fire cleanup efforts. You can put their experience to work on your own property to help you remove all sorts of bulk items you’re eager to get rid of.

With Junk King Colorado Springs you’ll have a minimum of a two-man team and huge truck at your disposal. The crew can make a complete circuit through your home and around your property to pick up whatever you want tossed out. If you’ve got a sofa down in the basement or exercise bike in the garage you want gotten rid of then the Junk King crew will snatch it and load it. You won’t have to lift a finger. They’ll also make short work of any debris you have in your yard such as old patio furniture, play sets or even piles of dirt. Nothing will be out of reach for the Junk King Colorado Springs crew.

Once the truck is loaded up, they’ll be driving it to a proper disposal zone. That could be a recycling center or a certified landfill. In either case, you can rest assure that your junk will be taken care of in a responsible manner. This is the best way to keep Colorado Springs environmentally sound and your homes free of clutter.

Colorado Leaf Removal

The mere mention of the month October conjures up different images for different people. For the kids, October is all about Halloween. It’s a time to figure out who to dress up as and plot out the best trick-or-treat routes. Lately, the adults have gotten into the spirit of the holiday by decorating their front yards. Seemingly overnight makeshift graveyards pop up in gardens. Bushes and trees become shrouded in cobwebs and all manner of ghoulish figures begin appearing. At least you know those are the houses with the good candy!

October can mean Oktoberfest. Here in Colorado Springs there are several official Oktoberfest celebrations including the big weekend at Security Service Field and other destinations. These parties hold the promise of plenty of beers featuring some of our very own microbreweries. There will also be lots of singing, dancing and knockwurst!

Fall in Colorado Springs is also about arts festivals. These are tied into the harvest season and provide a wonderful opportunity to local artisans to put their crafts on display. If you want to get a jumpstart on your Christmas gift shopping these fairs are the perfect way to go.

Naturally, you can’t escape the simple beauty of the great outdoors. The trees around Colorado Springs crank up the Technicolor and come alive in bold shades of orange, red and brown. Everywhere you look there is a picture perfect postcard moment. However, when you return home for the sightseeing you could be greeted with a not so friendly sight. That would be all the fallen leaves that have accumulated in your yard. It’s time to bust out the rake and this can be quite the chore. The good news is that this fall leaf season you don’t have to do all the work alone. You can hire Junk King to make the leaf removal a breeze.

Way back when we had full reign to burn all the leaves we could rake up. Those days are long gone. Today, burning leaves could get you slapped with a fine. And you certainly don’t want to be responsible for a fire spreading from your burning leaves! That’s why the only smart choice is to get rid of the leaves the save way by having them hauled off by a Junk King Colorado Springs crew.

Along with the leaves and other yard waste, Junk King can also remove any bulky item you want to get rid of. Why not take full advantage and go through your garage, basement, closet and attic. Think of this as a “clean sweep.” You’ll be getting rid of leaves and junk all within less time than it would take you to actually rake all those leaves! Once the job is done, you’ll have plenty of the weekend left over to enjoy Colorado Springs.
