Contra Costa Furniture Removal

Is this the year you replace your furniture? If you’ve been sitting on the same sofa for ten years or more, it might be time to consider replacing that old sofa with a new model. You might just discover that you’ve been missing out on a firm and comfortable seat. The same can be said for a recliner, a loveseat or mattress. All of those pieces of furniture weren’t meant to last a lifetime. When you’re ready to bring in new items, hire Junk King for your old furniture removal.

Over the time you’ve spent with your furniture you might have discovered a lot of things. For instance, if your first sofa wasn’t covered in stain resistant covering, then it could be chock full of splotches. You would definitely want to upgrade to that. You might have also realized that a deeper sofa is better suit for afternoon naps. There are things like cushion, pillows and armrests that you might want to upgrade and improve. Just like you need to spend time trying out a mattress, if you’re shopping for a new family room sofa, then you want to make sure it will be comfortable for everybody.

As mentioned, Junk King can handle your old furniture removal. That’s a vital part of replacing your furniture because you don’t want to be stuck with a couch, chair or table that you’re not going to use. You know you can’t put it out on the curb and you don’t want to shove it down the basement or out in the garage. Your home space is too valuable to use it as a storage locker. Junk King can load up all those furniture pieces in a single junk removal trip. In addition to the furniture, Junk King can also help you get rid of all kinds of bulky items like appliances, BBQ grills, tires, sporting equipment and other household goods. Imagine what you can do with all that space once you’ve cleared out the clutter. Your attic can become a guest room. Your basement can be converted into a home theatre. Your garage can actually be used to park your car!

Everything that gets loaded onto the Junk King truck is destined to responsible disposal. The Junk King crew will sort your junk to see what can be recycled or donated. Either way, you’ll be reducing y our carbon footprint and taking back your space from all that junk. A furniture removal appointment with Junk King can be the beginning of a junk free home.

Contra Costa Junk Recycling

One way to insure that families keep up with recycling is to involve the kids. That’s why the Mt. Diablo Recycling company recently launched a contest for Contra Costa elementary, middle and high school students.

“We were talking about how we can inspire kids to teach more so we came up with the recycling contest,” said Nicole Impagliazzo, Mt. Diablo Recycling Center’s Community Outreach and Public Relations manager. “We truly believe that if we educate the kids, we can change the community and change the world.”

The contest involves answering a simple question: “What do you do to inspire your family, your friends and your community to recycle?” The response can be in the form of a written or video essay. Although getting the message out about recycling is a positive element of this contest, there are also prizes. A first, second and third prize will be awarded in each age category: Grades K-5, $300, $150 and $50; Grades 6-8, $300, $150 and $50; and Grades 9-12, $500, $350 and $250.

For any recycling program to work, the entire community has to be involved. Not only does that included homeowners but businesses as well. Hotels, restaurants and offices can all do their part by recycling plastics, paper, aluminum, cardboard and food scraps. But it doesn’t have to stop there. Recycling also applies to bigger items that won’t squeeze into the recycling bin. For that kind of junk recycling, you can depend on Junk King.

Junk King Contra Costa is part of a national chain of junk removal professionals who are all dedicated to keeping what they collect out of landfills. So far, the Junk King franchises have racked up some significant numbers with that goal. They’ve kept 60% off everything they have collected out of a dump. Not many businesses can make a claim like that. Junk King accomplishes that goal by partnering up with local facilities like Mt. Diablo Recycling. They are part of their weekly drop off schedules.

If you’re not sure what items you have for junk recycling, don’t worry. The Junk King crew assigned to your removal project will know what to look for. Often they will collect a piece of furniture that can be put back into use by a charity. That certainly counts as recycling! When you hire Junk King, you’re not only reducing your personal carbon footprint, but you’re getting a junk free home in return. What can be better than that?
