Did you know that every year, around 9 million refrigerators and/or freezers are thrown out in the U.S., according to estimates from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Old couches, tables, chairs, and other bulky furniture items also routinely end up in the local dump every year. Furniture waste generated by Americans in 2017 totaled a staggering 12.2 million tons. Worst of all is the fact that over 80 percent of that waste ended up in the landfill. Add to that the over 18.2 million mattresses that we throw away every year, the millions of pounds of electronic waste (e-waste), and other similar items, and it quickly becomes apparent that bulky junk is a major source of our waste.
For many homeowners, business owners, and other residents of Flower Mound, TX, getting rid of bulky junk items can often be frustrating. The local waste management company has strict regulations and rules regarding bulky item pickup. According to the City, all bulky trash items must be no larger than 3’x 3’x 12′ to be picked up. For larger items, you can expect to pay a minimum of $45/hour for that pickup, and you will have to do all of the heavy lifting and hauling of the bulky junk item.
Furthermore, appliances such as refrigerators, freezers, and air conditioners that contain Freon, PCB, or other liquid or gaseous compounds must have that product removed by a certified technician who places a special tag on the item prior to collection. Hazardous and electronic waste, car parts, tires, and non-compatible items such as bricks and concrete will not be collected with regular bulk trash.
Given these difficulties, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that many people in Flower Mound simply avoid getting rid of the bulky items that they no longer use and that are taking up valuable space in their home. An estimated 235 million electrical items, including televisions, computers and monitors, are being stored by consumers in their homes or businesses, simply because there’s nothing else to do with them and people don’t want to go through the hassle of dealing with the local trash company. The same is true for furniture, appliances, outdoor playground equipment, and other common bulky junk items.
Fortunately, residents of Flower Mound can turn to Junk King Dallas Mid Cities for all of their bulky junk removal needs. We are proud to be the top-rated junk removal service in the wider Dallas area and offer both residential and commercial junk removal, including heavy, bulky junk items. Below, we briefly explain why Junk King is the best option for getting rid of your bulky junk items in a way that is easy, efficient, and environmentally friendly.
We do all the Heavy Lifting for your Bulky Junk Removal in Flower Mound
Bulky waste is defined as any waste that you cannot fit into a bin or bag for regular trash pickup. Here at Junk King we know that many of our clients might not have the time, the energy, or the physical means for getting rid of the bulky waste that cannot simply be taken out with the regular trash. To that end, our junk removal teams are committed to doing all of the “dirty work” for you. When you hire us for bulky junk removal in Flower Mound, there is no need to haul that 300 pound couch, or massive King size mattress out to your driveway. Rather, just let our professional junk removal team know what you want taken out of your home, and we will do the rest.
Of course, we also respect the privacy of our clients, and for those that prefer a “contact-less” junk removal service, we also offer that option. You can hire us over the phone, take your junk out to the driveway or curb on the designated pickup day, and even pay us over the phone or online so that you never have to be in contact with our junk hauling teams if you so prefer. We even offer discounts for “pre-staged” junk removal.
We Can Pick Up and Haul Away Virtually Any Type of Bulky Junk Item
Secondly, when you hire Junk King of Dallas Mid Cities for your bulky junk removal needs, you will not have to worry about strict rules about what items can and cannot be hauled away. As we mentioned above, the public trash service is extremely strict when it comes to the size of bulky junk items and what items can be removed. With Junk King, on the other hand, we can help you get rid of virtually anything as long as that item is not classified as toxic waste. Our junk hauling teams can help you get rid of virtually any junk item, from heavy refrigerators in the basement to 2,000 pound hot tubs on the back deck.
Furthermore, because our trucks are larger than the competitors, you can take advantage of our visit to rid your home or business of all the different bulky junk items that are cluttering your space. For example, if you planned on hiring us to get rid of an old bed and mattress that has been stored in your attic for the better part of a decade, you can take advantage of our visit to also get rid of the yard waste you have stored in the tree line of your backyard.
Junk King is the Greenest and Most Sustainable Junk Removal Company in Flower Mound
Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, we here at Junk King take our commitment to protecting the environment seriously. We know that many of our customers may want to donate or recycle their bulky junk items. Old furniture can be renovated and many older appliances may have several years of life left in them. However, many private junk removal companies may simply take your bulky waste items directly to the local landfill. If you don’t have your own truck for hauling, ensuring that your used bulky items are either donated or recycled can be difficult.
With Junk King, however, we offer a simple and efficient way to deal with your bulky junk in the most environmentally friendly way possible. For several years now, we have been the region’s top-rated junk hauling company, and for good reason! Besides offering the most affordable prices, the absolute best customer service, and the most efficient junk removal service, we are also one of the few junk haulers that has an environmental ethic at the foundation of our business practice.
Our junk removal teams take the extra time to sort through the junk items that we pick up. If the items are in decent shape, we make sure to send those items to thrift stores, donation centers, charities, and others who can help to get used furniture, appliances, and other household items into the hands of people who need them in our community. If the items are simply beyond repair, we also sort through them to ensure that every recyclable item is recycled. Today, we are proud to say that at least 60 percent of the junk items we pick up either get recycled, donated, or otherwise repurposed.
Also, providing our customers with “fair and transparent” pricing is one of the hallmarks of our company and we even offer your four different ways to get a free estimate, including free, on-site pricing estimates. You can also call us toll-free at 1 888-888-JUNK or at (706) 705-5320, text us a photo of the junk items you need hauled away at 737-888-5865, or use our easy-to-use online pricing estimator.
No matter what option you choose, as soon as a price is agreed upon, you choose a date and two-hour service window that works for your schedule. Our junk removal professionals will call you 15-30 minutes before we show up to promptly take your junk!
