Living in a high-rise apartment complex or condo building is, for many, the height of luxury. These buildings provide unparalleled views of your surroundings, and the amenities that come with these homes are often beyond what you would find anywhere else. The apartments are finished with high-end finishes, a doorman is often available to ensure security, and many newer buildings even have restaurants and other businesses on the ground floor.
But there are a few drawbacks to high-rise living. One of these has to do with your garbage. You’re often very limited with what you can throw away. While there may be a trash shoot or a large dumpster for residents, you don’t have the benefit of being able to put bulk trash out on the curb. You also don’t have the option of adding another shed to your backyard, which means you can’t hold on to anything you’re not going to use. If you’ve got some old furniture, appliances, or other large items to get rid of, what can you do? One solution is to call Junk King of North Texas. We haul away large items from homes, apartments, high rises, and any other location.
What Are the Restrictions on Garbage at a High Rise?
Different high-rise buildings have different rules, but many of them do make it hard to dispose of large furniture and other items. If you lived in a house, the solution would be to put one or two items out for the city’s bulk trash pickup. However, that’s often not an option for those who live in apartments or condos.
Even if your complex or building has a dumpster available for use by residents, there’s still the issue of space. Putting a large sectional sofa into a dumpster is very difficult. If your building has one of those small square dumpsters, it may not even fit. You would have to get each item up and over the top of the dumpster, and that can be dangerous. You could drop the furniture on top of you or easily hurt yourself trying to lift something heavy up that high. Don’t risk injuring yourself. The much easier solution is to look for a junk hauling service in North Texas.
Dealing with Junk Hauling Yourself is Difficult
There’s also the issue of even getting heavy, bulky items down to the dumpster. If you live on the ground floor, it may not be as bad, but if you’re up several stories, it’s more of a challenge. You have to get the item out of your apartment, down the hall to the elevator, and then down to the ground floor. Some items may not fit in the elevator, leaving you to try to get them down the stairs. The chances of hurting yourself or damaging the building increase with every additional step. If you’re older, live alone, or are in poor health, you may have no way of moving these heavy objects without help.
If the junk you’re getting rid of doesn’t fit in the dumpster, you may have to haul it to the landfill yourself. However, this means you’ve got to have a truck or other vehicle that is large enough to hold the junk. You have to load everything into the truck, drive to the landfill, pay the fee to dump items, and then get them out of your truck. It’s a lot of work and, again, there are plenty of opportunities to injure yourself.
The Ideal Solution for High Rise Junk Removal: Junk King
Working with Junk King is the best way to get rid of any bulk garbage you have at your high rise or any other home. We’re professionals with years of experience handling junk removal. Whether you have one old refrigerator you need to dispose of or an entire home of junk, we can handle it. Here are some of the benefits to working with Junk King North Texas:
We Do the Heavy Lifting
One of the biggest benefits to using Junk King when you live in a high rise is that we will handle getting your items out of your home and down to our truck. You don’t have to move them to the ground floor or even out of your apartment. Just show us what you need us to take, and we’ll do the rest. Our team understands how to carefully move heavy, bulky items without hurting ourselves, plus we’re always very careful about our surroundings. We won’t damage the doorframes, floors, light fixtures, or anything else in your home or building.
We Have all the Equipment Necessary
Junk King has a fleet of large trucks that can hold a lot of stuff, so don’t worry about having too much. We also have all the necessary equipment to get large items down to the truck quickly and safely. This includes dollies, furniture movers, two-person shoulder dollies, and much more.
We Do More than Your Condo or Apartment
We do much more than just haul stuff out of your home. If you have a storage closet, locker, or other space in your high-rise, we can help you clean that out, too. Again, all you have to do is tell us what you want us to take, and we do the rest. For homeowners, we will haul junk out of garages, basements, attics, sheds, and other spaces. We’ll haul off cut-down trees, old hot tubs, dismantled decks, and other yard debris as well as DIY home remodeling.
What Will Junk King Haul Away?
In fact, when it comes to hauling away stuff, there’s only one thing Junk King can’t deal with: hazardous materials. For the safety of our crew and anyone we may come in contact with, we have to leave the hazardous materials to professionals who have the correct equipment and knowledge to handle them. If you have something hazardous, we may be able to direct you to someone who can deal with it. Other than that, we cannot handle hazardous wastes in any way.
What we can handle, however, is most everything else. This includes large, heavy items such as old furniture and broken appliances. We deal with electronic waste, including broken televisions, computers, and cell phones. Junk King can haul away yard waste, DIY construction debris, and general garbage as well. We can help you clean out a hoarder house or a foreclosed-upon property, empty out rental properties for new tenants, and assist businesses with the debris that comes from remodeling or during a major clean-out. If you ever have any questions about what Junk King can take, just call and ask.
We Donate and Recycle What We Can
Some people who call us do need to get rid of trash. They have broken appliances, old furniture that’s no longer usable, or other garbage. However, some people who call us simply need to get rid of things they no longer need or have room for. They may have purchased a new sofa, but the one they’re getting rid of is still usable. If you’re upgrading and need to get rid of something that’s not truly trash, Junk King can still help you.
When you have something that can be used by someone else, we will still get it out of your home and put it in our truck. However, we won’t take it to the dump. Instead, when we get back to our warehouse, we sort through everything in the truck. If there’s something that’s still usable, we will set it aside. Once we have sorted everything, we take what’s in good shape to one of the local organizations we work with. These organizations will take the items and get them into the hands of those who need them. Your old furniture could be used in a homeless shelter, a soup kitchen, or go to someone who has escaped an abusive household.
After we sort out the donatable items, we’re not ready to go to the landfill just yet. Next, we sort out everything that can be recycled. Metal, plastic, untreated wood, and any other materials are pulled out and sent off to a recycling center to be made into something new. We will even break down furniture and other larger items into their base materials if those materials can be recycled.
Junk King’s goal is to reduce our impact on the environment as much as we possibly can. Only around a third of what we pick up actually goes to the dump, and we’re continually working to get that number even lower.
