Dallas Landscaping Cleanup

Have you heard of the Adopt-a-Road program? This is where a business, a group or just a regular person can donate funds to help keep the road clear of debris. Over in Kaufman County, they’ve taken this one step further and have allowed folks to adopt a county road to do cleanup. All they have to do is let the County Commissioner know which road they want to clean up and when they’re going to do it. The city will even provide extra help in the form of municipal workers who will show up to haul away any collected garbage. How great would it be if you could get someone to adopt your backyard?

Think about having your own personal crew come out to your place to clear up whatever kind of debris might have been left behind during the last storm. Maybe you’ve got some left over car parts from your family “mechanic” that aren’t going anywhere. Do you have old patio furniture that has seen better days? Are you looking to replant a garden and have dug up piles of dirt? Yes, that adopt-a-yard crew would certainly come in handy with any of that removal. Sadly, that’s not going to happen. But you can hire the next best thing and that would be a Junk King crew.

Junk King of Dallas is part of a national franchise of junk removal professionals. The crew working here in Dallas has been trained and certified to handle all types of junk removal assignments with landscaping cleanup at the top of the list. You might have some waste leftover from a remodel job that has been piled up in your backyard. It’s easy to pile that up but a few rainstorms and that pile is going to get moldy. You don’t want to hang onto that.

What about the 4th of July? Are you going to be throwing a backyard BBQ, Texas style? It’s never too late to get your backyard into shape for a summer party. When you call Junk King you could get a crew out there on the same day to take away whatever you’re tossing out. That will give you plenty of time to set up for your party in a clean backyard.

You can also put the Junk King crew to work removing any other oversized item you want to get rid of. They’ll be able to make room in your garage by taking out all that unused sports equipment, boxes of papers or anything else you have stacked up. Junk King is your one stop fall all your junk hauling needs. Why waste time with other services when the best is just a phone call away?

Dallas Concrete Disposal and Recycling

The recent round of tornadoes to sweep through Texas got everyone thinking about safety. The best place to go when those sirens start wailing is in a secured storm shelter. When it comes to tornadoes there is no telling where they will end up and you’re much better off being safe than sorry. You can control you own safety at your home and not the government is going to pitch in and help you get there.

The Metro Safe Room Rebate Program kicks in this summer and its going to allow residents to be reimbursed for half of the cost of installing a storm safe room to a home or property. The maximum payoff will be $3,000. So, if your storm shelter is going to cost $6,000 half of it can be paid for. Here are the qualifications: “You must own a home in Dallas County, Tarrant County, Collin County or Denton County. You will need to make a copy of your deed or property tax record. Your property must not be in the 100-year floodplain (FEMA Flood Zone A) or in a Special Flood Hazard Area. This can be verified online. You must contract with a certified supplier. There are two: National Storm Shelter Association or American Tornado Association. You must be approved first, before any construction begins.”

Naturally, you don’t have to wait for government approval to build your own storm shelter. All you need are the plans, the permits, the materials and the muscle. You could also get a little extra help by hiring Junk King. These are the junk removal experts who can help haul away the dirt you’re going to dig up for your shelter or any concrete you need to get rid of as a result of the construction. Dirt and concrete are just two of the items on Junk King Dallas’ long list of things that take away and this kind of service can be a huge help when it comes to a home construction project.

If you’ve ever worked on a remodel or any type of construction project then you know that you’re going to start with some kind of demolition. This doesn’t mean taking a stick of dynamite to your backyard to make a hole. However, digging with a backhoe is considered demolition. You’re going to be making piles of junk that need to be quickly hauled away in order for you to finish the project. A scheduled appointment with Junk King dallas at the end of your demo day will be just the ticket to get your yard clean. Don’t wait to get started on your storm shelter. Let Junk King make it a smooth construction process.
