Do You Really Know What Junk Is In Your Denver Home?

The Denver Union Station is getting a makeover. Developers are going to maintain the historic charm of the building but there’s going to be some new neighbors rolling in. Plans are for 22,000 square feet of the ground-floor area to be split up into 10 retail stores and restaurants. There’s also going to be a remodeled 12,000 square foot lobby area and 40,000 square feet outdoor plaza. On the upper levels will be office for Amtrak and a 110 room hotel. Quite the overhaul. The good news is that the developers intend to keep the station open for business while all this work is going on.

What would you do to give your home a makeover? The “extreme” version would be tearing it all down and rebuilding from the ground up. But that’s not practical. The most common types of remodeling jobs in the Denver area are the addition of a bathroom or expansion of the kitchen. Both are crucial areas which can not only improve the quality of life but also bump up the resale value of the home. Often, you don’t really have to engage in a major remodeling project to spruce up your home. You could accomplish that task with two simple ideas: A new paint job and getting rid of all your junk.

Painting the rooms in your home is an opportunity to reflect your personality. You can stick with the basic white walls if that is your preference but why not think outside of the color box? A trip to your local paint store could open up the world of possibilities. Depending on the circumstances, it wouldn’t be hard to paint a room with furniture in it. Just push everything into the center of the room and cover it with a plastic tarp then tackle the walls. Focus on a room a day and you could have the entire place done in a week.

Naturally, before taking on a project like that you should really take care of the junk issue. If you’ve got too much junk cluttering up your home that no amount of fresh paint or remodeling will excuse that. A piece of junk is clearly defined as an item which you have no intention of ever using because it’s broken or simply no practical. Getting rid of that junk is the kind of project you should be working with Junk King Denver on.

These are the junk removal experts in Denver. With one scheduled appointment, you can clear you home of all those oversized items or piece of e-waste that you’ve been holding onto for no good reason. When you’re ready to talk about your junk, Junk King is the only call to make!

Denver Grill Disposal and Recycling

Denver has a very healthy recycling program that can best be summed up by the slogan, “Go Purple!”  That would be the color designation of the recycling bin that every resident has access to. Into those bins can go the type of items you would expect to be easily recycled like cartons, plastics, aluminum, cardboard, glass, office paper, junk mail, newspapers, magazine, catalogs, paper bags, paperboard, phone books, empty aerosol cans and wrapping paper. Besides falling under the category of recyclables do you notice another commonality? All of those items can fit into the purple bin. They can be stomped on and crush to fit neatly in that bin. But what about all that stuff you can’t stuff into the purple bin? Do you have to hang onto it? Can it ever be recycled? The short answers are “no” and “yes.”  You can get rid of bulky items and they can be recycled when you contract with the professional junk removal services offered by Junk King Denver. Case in point: Your old backyard grill.

A grill is a lot like a car; you buy one to last for a couple of years but when it’s time is up it’s got to go. But this is not something you can put out with the rest of your trash. It’s also kind of hard to load a greasy grill onto the back of your SUV and then find a place where you can properly dispose of it. This is the perfect example of why you need Junk King. They’ll be able to toss that old grill onto the back of their truck with very little effort. Then they’ll find the right place to recycle the grill. Probably this will mean a facility that handles scrap metal. Do you think one of those is close to your home? Chances are its way out of town but that’s not a problem for Junk King. In fact, those sites are part of their daily drop off routines.

Along with the old grill, Junk King Denver can also remove and recycle big items like sofas, tables, mattresses and kitchen appliances. These are all prime targets for recycling, repurposing and reusing. Best of all, the Junk King crew will be doing all the heavy lifting. You’re certainly welcome to help but why should you when the pros can handle the job. You also won’t have to bother with pulling stuff down to the driveway or out onto your porch. They’ll pick it up wherever it’s been placed. After Junk King Denver loads up their truck their job is done and yours is just beginning. That job would be figuring out what to do with all the open space you suddenly have!
