Back to School Junk Removal in Denver

Back to SchoolDue to the horrendous recent floods, going back to school has been a challenge for many Denver area students. Beyond the actual closing of the campuses during the height of the flooding, many of the schools were tapped for use as makeshift shelters. It’s hard to kick out families with nowhere else to go. Of course, like the many snow days we experience here in the Mile High City, you won’t find many kids who are complaining about a school closing. Although they might not like this idea, being stuck inside is a perfect excuse to do some good cleaning. We’re not just talking about wiping down furniture and sweeping the floors but going deep and pulling out junk to be tossed.

If you were spared flood damage and just have to be indoors then why not take advantage of the time for cleaning out rooms, basements and attics. What will you do with all that junk? That’s easy: put Junk King Denver on alert for a pickup. First, you’ve got to figure out just what you want thrown away.

Depending on the age of your kid, this could have been a summer of “transition from pre-teen to full teen.” There’s no telling how many kiddie bedroom sets were tossed out along with old toys, posters, clothes and everything else that your kid outgrew. Once the kids’ rooms have been de-cluttered, you can get them to help with the rest of the house. Take advantage of your “work crew” by having them designate the bulky stuff that can be hauled away like old furniture, sports equipment nobody uses and anything else that is taking up space.

Now that you know everything you want to get rid of, make your call to Junk King. They’ll be sending over a crew and a truck to handle the assignment. That crew will be happy to come through your home to remove whatever you’re throwing out. No need to make a pile in the driveway when the Junk King Denver crew is happy to do all the lifting and the loading. Before they get started, you’ll be presented with an estimate based on how much space your stuff will take up on the back of the truck. This is how Junk King charges its customers. You’re not paying separate charges for dump fees, travel time or labor costs. Everything is included in one single price.

Soon the kids will settle into their school routines. Won’t it be nice to have a clean home for them to do their class assignments? At least it should stay clean until the holidays!

Got Junk Items In Denver?

Not all recycling programs go according to plan. That’s what was discovered recently when a defunct recycling company left behind a mountain of e-waste when the business went belly up. How big is this mountain? Try 6 million pounds or enough to fill a 72,000-square-foot warehouse. In the rubble are old televisions, computer monitors and other office equipment. This is not what to do if you’ve got junk.

“We’ve not seen that amount of e-waste abandoned in Colorado,” said state environmental protection specialist Derek Boer to a local news channel. He is the lead investigator in the case and has charged the company with a hefty fine. Apparently, that’s not enough to motivate them into action. The question remains as to who is going to clean up the mess. On many levels, this sounds like a job for Junk King Denver. “Got junk to the tune of six million pounds of e-waste?” Shouldn’t be a problem for a Junk King crew!

If called upon by the state, Junk King would be happy to pitch in but they typically work on a much smaller scale if you consider cleaning out homes a smaller scale. It’s not unheard of for Junk King for be called in by real estate speculators to clean up foreclosed properties. All the trash and rubbish left behind by previous occupants have to be cleared out before the house can be put onto the market. A hard working Junk King Denver crew can sweep through a home and have it cleared out in no time. They can certainly do the same work on your property.

Whether you’ve got junk upstairs or down, the Junk King crew is happy to climb the stairs to get it removed. This is what hiring Junk King is all about: They do the work from start to finish. Not only does this include all the lifting and loading but also dropping off your junk to the proper facilities. If something is going to be recycled, Junk King Denver will make sure the recycling centers are certified by the state. Other opportunities for junk drop-off are at local charities who refurbish furniture and make it available to families in need. Imagine if you had to make several stops to get rid of all your junk? There goes your day off! With Junk King they’ll make sure your rubbish is properly disposed of whether it’s one stop or a dozen. Don’t worry; you’re not going to be charged for extra drops offs. You’ll only be charged by the amount of space your junk will take up on the back of the JK truck. You just can’t beat that deal for junk removal!
