Cleaning Up the City One Truckload At A Time

Starting your own business can be a very daunting challenge. It takes a special kind of businessperson to make the transition from worker to boss. For Renee Ferguson, making that leap was what she was destined to do.

When asked what attracted her to a Junk King franchise, Renee had this to say:

“The opportunity to own my own business… put my energies, hard work and knowledge into working a business for myself rather than for someone else and the rewards that follow. I also appreciated that at JUNK KING we strive to recycle as much as possible to reduce our footprint in the landfill.”

Reducing that footprint has been the founding principle for Junk King. Renee has had the privilege of helping folks clear out their clutter for over three years. In that time, she has come to appreciate the attachment we all have to our stuff.

“It’s amazing just how much junk we all have and people’s emotional attachment to their junk!  We are a nation of consumers and collectors. It’s harder for some to give away their things.”

That’s why it helps when you have a crew of capable movers who are responsive to the needs of the community.

“Junk King Dallas takes junk seriously and responsibly!” states Renee proudly. “We are sensitive to your situation when removing unwanted items and try to recycle or redirect over 60% of everything we collect.”

On some level, every junk removal session is about cleaning up a mess. Unfortunately, sometimes those messes are doing great harm to the neighborhood.

“People don’t realize that low-end fly by night junk removers neither have insurance or ethics when it comes to dumping responsibly. An evicted former property owner allowed others to illegally dump used shingles on his property after he took a small cash collection. City Code finally caught up to him and it was a massive undertaking to remove, literally, a 3 acre sea of shingles.”

Thankfully, Renee and her Junk King crews were up to the challenge and Dallas is the better for their efforts. What do you have to get rid of? Whatever it is, Junk King Dallas can take it away in no time at all.
