Columbus Junk Recycling – Go Green for the Holidays

During the recent holiday season, a new concept has taken hold for Columbus Ohio families who are concerned about the environment and that is “rent a tree.” For a small fee, a family can actually rent a living Christmas tree for their own use. When the holidays are over, the tree is picked up and returned to the growing farm. Some families have been using the same tree for years. This is taking “going green” to a whole new level!

Actually, the holidays are a time when a lot of potential recyclable materials are generated. Just think off all the wrapping paper left over on Christmas morning. For home recycling, it’s easy to separate our papers from our plastics from our metal and file them in the appropriate bins. The problem occurs with the bigger items we intend on having hauled away. That’s why finding a Columbus junk recycling company who is completely eco-friendly is your best option for junk removal.  That company is Junk King Columbus Ohio.

Most people look at a busted dishwasher sitting in their garage and think “I’ve got to get rid of that someday.” Well, that day can be sooner than you think when you call up a professional junk hauler like Junk King. But did you know that dishwasher might be perfect for recycling? The same can be said for old furniture, televisions, computer monitors and mattresses. They don’t all have to end up in a landfill causing problems for future generations. These items can be stripped down to their core elements, separated and recycled. One sofa can be made of metal, wood and cushioning. They might not all be recycled at the same place in the Columbus area. The key is knowing where to take those items get the most out of recycling.

An experienced junk removal company who proclaims to be eco-friendly will know all the right places to take your recyclables. One truck load of your junk might need to go to several different facilities. That’s part of the recycling circle of life. You don’t want to take your time researching and mapping out where these recycle centers might be located around Columbus. Let Junk King worry about that.

Just because you’re bringing in a junk removal team to your home doesn’t mean you shouldn’t consider the exact same team for your business. Even if you’re just working at a company, you can still suggest to upper management that it might be time to get rid of all that extra junk. When a company can then tell its customers they are also recycling they’ll find an uptick in business. More and more people are gravitating towards green friendly businesses. There is no reason why your company can’t go green and stay green.

Junk King Columbus is proud to be eco-friendly and recycle a large portion of all materials hauled.  This holiday season, simply call 1-888-888-JUNK or book a free on site estimate online.

Columbus Junk Hauling – Avoid the Hoarding

The hoarders are once again among us! The popular cable reality series detailing the lives of hoarders has returned for a new season. We’re getting peaks inside the houses of people who simply can’t throw anything away. As a result, their lives have come to a virtual standstill. In some extreme cases the health of family members are actually in jeopardy. Luckily for most of us, we could only be classified as amateur hoarders. Yes, we’re all a little bit guilty of holding onto junk, but it hasn’t gotten to the same dire circumstances as the real hoarders… yet! Watching an episode of “Hoarders” could inspire you to finally get your own piles of junk under control. When you’re ready to take the plunge, then it makes sense to hire a locally based Columbus Junk King hauling team to help you cart away your hoard.

There are lots of reasons why we hold onto our junk. One of the most common is that it’s just too big to move. Sure, we can manage to shove it into another room or onto the back porch or in the garage, but then that’s where it will live for as long as we stay there. Many of us have items like broken kitchen appliances, ratty sofas, busted ping pong table and car parts that are simply beyond use. They are now officially collecting rust and mold. Is this really something you want to expose your family to? Bringing in the Junk King Columbus crew will let you get rid of this trash once and for all.

Of course getting rid of junk isn’t just restricted to homeowners. Business owners are equally guilty of being “closet hoarders.” Go through any typical office and you’re sure to find that one room or abandoned cubicle which has become the depository for all kinds of office junk. Things like outdated fax machines and printers are top of the heap. And let’s not forget the files. How many cartons of files are sitting around collecting dust? These can be tossed out, but there are just too many. Once again, let a professional hauling team like Junk King handle this.

Getting rid of junk takes muscle and a big truck. Those are two things professional junk haulers like Junk King have in abundance. A quick assessment by a Junk King Columbus team supervisor will let you know the exact costs of the job and what type of truck they’ll need. Then all that is left is scheduling an appointment for the Junk King crew to show up and get the job done.

Once all your junk is gone, you’re going to have some brand new space to embrace. In your home, this could mean as much as an entire room that will be reclaimed or a new work space in the garage. For your business, valuable storage space can be opened up for those materials and goods you really need. Starting the New Year is the perfect opportunity to clear the clutter from your life. Whether it be your Columbus home or business, we should all avoid hoarding!
