Columbus Concrete Disposal and Recycling

There’s always a lot of fun with a groundbreaking ceremony. Perhaps “fun” isn’t quite the right word to use but depending on the situation a groundbreaking ceremony can draw a lot of attention to a particular construction project. Hopefully, the groundbreaking ceremony isn’t just a ceremony and there is actual work being done. You can tell the difference by who attends the ceremony. Yes, there should be plenty of officials and fundraisers but what you really want to look for are the construction crews standing by waiting for the ceremony to finish. Recently, there was a terrific groundbreaking ceremony held over in Driving Park. This was for a new library and construction is well under way. The good news is that this is the first of 10 libraries that will be getting new buildings or renovations in the Columbus Metropolitan area.

All this talk of groundbreaking begs the question, “What construction projects are you planning around your home?” One of the most common projects for the summer is to repave a driveway or sidewalk. It is best to get that concrete poured, dried and settled before winter comes along. If this sounds like a job you’re considering then you’re going to need to make room for that new concrete by tearing up the old concrete. As home DIY projects go this is not that complicated. You can rent a jackhammer to bust up the cement and a pickax to finish the job. If you hire Junk King Columbus the job really will be finished after you bust up the cement. That’s because Junk King will be the crew who will take away all that concrete and make sure it is disposed of properly. You won’t have to lift a chunk!

The fact is that you’re not going to be able to throw out pieces of concrete in your weekly garbage pickup because of weight restrictions. There are no such restrictions with Junk King. They’ll send over a crew and truck capable of taking away any amount of concrete. Once that cement is loaded up, the Junk King Columbus crew can also toss on any other bulky item you want to get rid of. This is a perfect opportunity to finally move out old furniture, appliances or mattresses. It can all go on the same truck.

When the truck is loaded, the Junk King Columbus crew will be heading out to the nearest recycling facility. That applies to the concrete and the rest of your junk. Even though it might mean making a couple of stops, that won’t be a problem for Junk King. Before you tear up your driveway, make sure you’ve got Junk King on standby.

Columbus Debris Removal

Just when you thought it was safe to go out into the backyard, there is an invader creeping through Columbus OH gardens. No, we’re not talking about gophers but about Heracleum mantegazzianum, otherwise known as the giant hogweed. By giant we mean a weed that can grow as tall as 15 feet. It can also cause your skin to burn and might even lead to blindness if that pollen gets in your eye. Because of the danger, local authorities have gotten involved with taken down the weeds. If you find some of these weeds cropping up in your backyard you might try blasting them with weed killers or throwing a plastic garbage bag over them and starving them out of sunlight and rain.

Weeds aren’t the only problems you could be experiencing with your gardens. There could come a time when your soil isn’t doing what it should be. The best recourse for bad soil is to replace it with good soil. That’s going to mean a lot of digging on your part. It’s also going to mean piles of dirt springing up. Dirt is not something you can get rid of easily. You can’t throw it out with the rest of your trash because of weight restrictions. You can’t load it up in your own car because, well, it’s dirt! The best way to get rid of dirt is to hire Junk King Columbus.

Although their main focus is on professional junk removal, Junk King can take away all kinds of things you want to get rid of including piles of dirt. You can add to that pieces of sod, chunks of patio concrete, fallen tree limbs, tool sheds, play sets, sandboxes and even a hot tub. All it takes is one call to Junk King to put your removal project into motion.

How will Junk King Columbus pull off this job? They’re going to be providing you with a two-man crew who will be doing all the heavy lifting. That crew will also be arriving for the removal appointment with the right tools. In the case of dirt removal, that would be a couple of shovels and a wheel barrel. They’ll also have a truck large enough to contain whatever you’re throwing out. In the case of dirt removal, the crew will have bins to hold that dirt until they’re able to drop it off at the proper disposal center.

Along with your yard waste, that same Junk King crew can also cart off all the oversized items you’ve been keeping in storage. What could you fill a truck up with? Furniture? Toys? Clothes? Appliances? Auto parts? A pool table? Whatever you want gone, the Junk King crew will handle it. Give them a shout today to schedule a junk hauling appointment. You’ll be glad you did!
