Dayton Debris Removal

Are you familiar with the state regulations regarding burning debris? Fall is the time to rake up those leaves and many folks prefer burning the leaves as a way of getting rid of them. However, they might be breaking the law and not even be aware. Here is the official policy:

“Ohio law prohibits outdoor debris burning between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. during October and November. The Ohio Department of Natural Resources says the abundance of dry fuel from dried grasses and leaves combined with winds can make a for hazardous fire conditions. ODNR officials recommend using a 55-gallon drum with a weighted screen lid for burning debris outside. Officials say homeowners living within incorporated limits should check their local ordinances for debris burning. Those who violate Ohio’s burning regulations are subject to fines and citations.”

There is an alternative to all that burning. That would be hiring a company like Junk King to handle your yard debris removal. Junk King will provide the working crew and the truck to take care of any type of yard cleanup including getting rid of all those piles of leaves. While they’re at it, that same work crew can also remove wood scraps, tree branches, grass clippings, dirt, planters and anything else that is an eyesore in your yards.

Of course, debris removal isn’t relegated to just yard waste. All that clutter in your garage can be considered debris as well. Why not put Junk King to work clearing that out? Getting rid of all that unwanted stuff will certainly make finding the holiday decorations a lot easier. You’ll also make room on the shelves for the things you want to keep in storage that matter. Anything you haven’t used in over a year and has no sentimental value should be tossed out.

Even though you’re “done” with your junk, Junk King doesn’t want to see anything go to waste. The crews will be keeping an eye out for those items that could be put to use by a local charity. If an old sofa needs new covering, then it can be donated to an organization that specializes in that type of refurbishing. Junk King has established many terrific partnerships with various charities throughout Dayton. They also have solid working relationships with the many recycling facilities in the area. Bottom line: When it comes to responsible and affordable debris removal, Junk King is your best option in Dayton.

 

Dayton Mattress Recycling

Do you really know what you’re sleeping on? Yes, it is a mattress but you know all the separate components that go into a mattress. You might have had the chance to look at a cutaway view when you went shopping for that mattress. This could have shown you the layers of foam and coils you would be sleeping on. After several years, you probably forget all about that. Now you need to replace that mattress. Before that new bed arrives, you might want to call on Junk King to handle your mattress recycling chore.

Every mattress that is picked up by Junk King will be stripped apart. This is not something they’re going to do in your driveway! Instead, Junk King will save the dismantling chore for when the crews return to the depot. The goal is to peel away the parts of that bed in order to facilitate the mattress recycling. When the dismantling job is done there could be a pile of cloth, a pile of foam, a pile of metal coils, a pile of lumber scraps and a pile of steel frames. Each of those items would be destined to a specific recycling plant. Sounds like a lot of work, doesn’t it? Well, that is work you’ll never have to contend with as long as Junk King is on the job.

All of this is part of Junk King’s green way of doing business. They want to keep as much of what they collect out of a landfill. If that means a little extra work, then so be it. The only time Junk King makes a straight drop off is if the mattress is infected with bed bugs. Then the landfill is the only place it should go.

That approach to recycling extends beyond a mattress to just about anything you might turn over to Junk King. They are able to recycle furniture, appliances, clothes and other household goods. Keep in mind that donating those objects to a charity counts as recycling. Do you need to specify which items you want donated or recycled? Not at all! The Junk King crew will handle that automatically. Don’t forget that Junk King can also help you clean up your backyard. Any type of yard waste, grills, fencing or other eyesores can all be loaded up on the same trip. For mattress recycling and total junk removal, Junk King is the way to go.
