With a dumpster rental, you’ll have to keep that unit on your property for at least three-days. You’ll be hard pressed to find a company that can drop off and pick up in the same day. You have to fill a dumpster up to the rim without going over. That’s because by law a tarp has to be placed over the garbage for transport. Dumpsters allow for a lot of garbage to be thrown out in a single load. That works best when you are involved in a remodel or home build. Of course, you or your work crew will still have to load up the dumpster.

If the dumpster is placed on the street outside your home, then you might need to secure an additional permit from the city. You also have to insure there is at least 60 feet of clearage on the day of the drop off and pick up. That might mean blocking off the area with traffic cones. Your neighbors might not like that.

With a junk pick up from a company like Junk King, all the trash removal can happen in a single appointment. The Junk King crew will do all the lifting and loading. You won’t need to bring anything from your home. There are no weight restrictions with regard to what you want removed from your home. You’ll have a full moving truck capable of holding an entire home’s worth of furnishings and household goods. A junk pick up appointment with Junk King can happen as a same day service or scheduled around your convenience.

The goal is to get your clutter cleared out as quickly and as efficiently as possible. Although it might seem like you have more room with a dumpster rental, you’ll also be doing all the work. The best option for junk pick up is to hire Junk King. They’ll get the job done right every time.

Celebrate Earth Day In Dallas With Green Junk Removal

If you want to get into the spirit of Earth Day, then you should make your way to the University of Texas Dallas for the big day. That is when the campus will be throwing the Earth fair. There will be 20 informational and interactive booths set up by community and campus groups. This comes on the heels of a campus wide effort to recycle e-waste. The E-Waste Roundup encouraged students and faculty members to get rid of old laptops, cell phones, computers and other office equipment the responsible way.

“We hope to engage and encourage students to continue finding Earth-friendly solutions to help all of us become effective stewards of the environment,” said Monalisa Amidar, assistant director of the Office of Student Volunteerism.

Additional UT Dallas events include gardening and compost workshops, screening of Earth Day themed documentaries and Adopt-A-Highway cleanups. Simply put, there is a lot you can do for Earth Day around the UT campus.

You can also do a lot for Earth Day around your own home if you hire Junk King to take care of all junk removal needs. Earth Day is all about cleaning up but cleaning up the right way.
