Dallas Furniture Disposal

Nebraska is coming to Dallas. That would be the Nebraska Furniture Mart which just turned the shovel on construction of a Texas size 560,000 square foot showroom/warehouse at the Colony just outside of Dallas. Competition was fierce among various retail sites not only here in Texas but in Tennessee and Missouri as well but the Colony won out. This is the new shopping complex located along State Highway 121 that hopes to inject a serious boost into the local economy. With over 433 acres of retail space, there will be plenty of opportunities for other stores and restaurants to join in with the Nebraska Furniture Mart.

Now, before you rush out to start shopping for new furnishings you’re going to have to wait a bit. The Mart isn’t going to be open until 2015. However, that shouldn’t put you off the idea of refurnishing your home or apartment. In fact, there are many bargains to be had not only in the many established Dallas furniture outlets but also online. Yes, you can buy a sofa over the internet and have it delivery right to your door. In many cases, an online retailer will offer you a better deal because they’ll toss in the shipping charges for free.

Exactly how long have you been sitting on that sofa of yours? What kind of shape is the easy chair in? And can we talk mattress? If your mattress is over five years old then you’re in serious need of replacement. Perhaps you want to replace those items before the holiday season kicks into high gear. You could also look at a new living room set as an early Christmas present. Why wait?

The most important thing about furniture shopping is showing up with the right measurements. Those measurements should not only be for the space your new furniture will occupy but also your door and hallway. Just because you got your old sofa into the house is no guarantee the design of your new model will fit the same way. It would be horrible if your new couch showed up after you got rid of the old couch and you couldn’t bring it in.

Speaking of getting rid of the old couch, have you thought about Junk King Dallas? Junk King will be a huge asset when it comes to old furniture disposal. When you hire Junk King Dallas you will be hiring a responsible and courteous crew who know the right way to lift a heavy object. They’ll also have a big enough truck to cart way all your discarded furniture along with any other junk item you want to get rid of. Don’t second guess; when it comes to junk removal there is only one king: Junk King!

Dallas Junk Recycling

It’s very rare in life when we get to have an official “do over.” The Dallas City Council is optioning its own version of a “do over” as it develops a comprehensive plan for recycling.  Apparently, the first version of the plan left out any thought of apartment complexes.   There are also rumblings about the proposed city wide ban on plastic bags. On one page of the plan we’re told the plastic bag issue will be “discussed” in the next five years but in another chapter the issue is put off until 2025. Clearly, there are a few things to work out.

The big concern is to make sure the local residents have a say in the plan that will have a direct impact on how they get rid of their trash. The goal is to make Dallas a zero waste city by the year 2040. That doesn’t mean we won’t be making any trash. It just means the trash we make will all be recycled. That’s a pretty tall order for a place as large as Big D. But it’s certainly an obtainable goal. Dallas isn’t alone. There will be plenty of other cities joining in on the crusade to become zero waste.

You can actually get a jump start on that by making sure all of your junk gets recycled the right way. To do that all you need is to call Junk King Dallas Fort Worth (1-800-995-5865).

Junk King Dallas is not a recycling facility.  Think of them as the bridge to the recycling firm. Junk King is a company of professional junk haulers who have been pitching in to make sure Dallas homeowners, businesses and apartment dwellers can get to “zero junk.”  They do this by providing the right muscle to lift any bulky object from any space and the big enough truck to haul it all away. Once your junk is placed on the Junk King truck they’ll make sure it gets to the right Dallas recycling facility, which sometimes can include a number of stops.

Keep in mind that just because you’re tossing something out that isn’t paper or a soda can doesn’t mean that it can’t be recycled. In fact, most bulky items can be broken down to their original components just like those magazines or newspapers. This holds true for a mattress box spring that will be stripped of its cloth, wood and metal pieces. Each of those goes into a separate pile to be crushed down and re-assimilated into a new form. That’s what recycling is all about. All you have to concern yourself with is getting that furniture on the back of the Junk King truck. That means you can finally get rid of all that old furniture, appliances, basement junk, yard debris or construction waste and know that it can all be recycled the Junk King way.
