Dayton Moving and Junk Hauling

As anyone living here will tell you, Dayton is a great place to call home. But just because you’re already living in Dayton doesn’t mean you can move around. You might be making the transition from your parents’ home to your first apartment. Or you could be stepping up into your own home. There are many folks who have opted to downsize as they head into retirement. In any of those scenarios, you can be sure of one thing: you don’t want to bring old junk into your new home. That is why you need to hire Junk King for the “move before the move.”

A common timeframe for a move is 30 days. That is how long it takes to give notice and pack up. During those first weeks, you should begin sorting through all of your stuff to decide what is going to go and what can be trashed. Keep in mind, that everything you’re taking with you has to be loaded by your movers. These would be the same movers who are going to be charging by the hour. Do you really want them hauling stuff that you’re just going to throw in a closet or garage and never use? That is a waste of money and time! Instead, turn all that rubbish over to Junk King.

The way Junk King works is that their two-man crew who will be assigned to your junk hauling project will take up the stuff from wherever it is residing. In other words, if you have furniture in the basement, boxes in the attic or junk in the garage, the Junk King crew will pick it up right from the spot. If it helps for you to pull all that stuff out and create a junk pile, then go for it! Just know that with Junk King on the job, you don’t have to exert yourself. You’ve already got a lot to do!

When you hire Junk King, you’re hiring an eco-friendly company. This means that those items you’re throwing out that could be recycled or donated will be. This is especially true with the donated objects. Your unwanted household goods can still be put to use thanks to Junk King. You don’t even have sort through your junk. The crews will figure it all out. Junk hauling before your move makes sense when you hire Junk King.

E-Waste Recycling In Dayton

Back in 2010, the EPA did a study about e-waste. This would be all those electronically charged gizmos, gadgets and office equipment that have been replaced. The agency found that in 2010, 649,000 tons of electronics were recycled. That represented just 27% of the 2.4 million tons of electronics that were classified as “end of life.” In other words, there was a lot more e-waste that wasn’t recycled that should be recycled. Part of the reason for this is that many folks hold onto the e-waste. From a space perspective, an old PC or home printer that can be shoved into a closet or up in the attic would not take up much space. However, when you add into that all the old televisions, laptops, cell phones and appliances that you’ve replaced then it’s clear you’ve accumulated a lot of clutter. You can’t merely throw that stuff out. Instead, it needs to be disposed of in a responsible way. That’s why you hire Junk King. They know how to handle e-waste recycling. They’ve been doing it for years!

Since its inception back in 2005, Junk King has always had an eco-friendly disposal policy. This means they are dedicated to recycling, repurposing and reusing. For proper e-waste recycling, Junk King has identified the facilities around Dayton that are set up to handle this type of processing. Typically, these centers have drop-off hours. But do you want to spend your day off driving your computer around town looking for the right facility? Let Junk King handle the job.

Along with e-waste recycling, Junk King can also donate those designated items that can be refurbished to a charity. Many of these organizations hire local residents and train them to fix everything from an old computer to reupholstering a sofa. As long is a piece of “junk” can stay out of a landfill, Junk King has accomplished its mission.

What can you turn over to Junk King? Pretty much any piece of rubbish can be picked up by the crew. By “picked up,” we mean right from the spot. You don’t have to move anything to make it easy for the Junk King crews. They are happy to climb up into the attic or go down in the basement to get at your junk. You can start with e-waste recycling and end with a home that is clutter free all thanks to Junk King.
