How Clean Out Services From Junk King Makes House Flipping Easier

How Clean Out Services From Junk King Makes House Flipping Easier

The housing market in the greater Fairfax region is hot and, with the expected increase in foreclosures and short sales, the market for house flipping promises to be strong. In fact, according to one source, Fairfax home prices were up 10 percent in December 2021 compared to the same month in 2020.

And a press release from Business Wire noted that,

“Less frenetic but still fast-paced is the prediction for the 2022 housing market in Northern Virginia which echoes national expectations, according to the Northern Virginia Association of Realtors® (NVAR) in its annual forecast produced in conjunction with George Mason University’s Center for Regional Analysis.”

Which means more great opportunities for flipping houses.

Flipping Houses 101How Clean Out Services and Flipping Houses Go Hand in Hand

So, what is “house flipping” exactly?

House flipping usually refers to the process of buyers purchasing distressed properties – houses on the brink of foreclosure or already owned by the bank – then fixing them up and hoping to resell them for a profit.

House flippers typically find these properties via foreclosures, bank short sales, or property auctions.

Because little more than available capital and a willingness to take risks are all that’s needed to get into the game, House flipping appeals to many who are not a realtor or real estate professionals. However, there are still a few things that people who are just starting out with flipping houses should know.

For example, experts agree that to be successful in flipping houses, you must spend your money wisely and invest in undervalued properties. However, these are usually the properties that require quite a bit of work, including junk removal.

In addition, there are several other essential tasks that are needed to be successful at the house flipping business.

Here are seven steps adapted from information found at the Rocket Mortgage® website:

  1. Know Your Neighborhood

You need to spend some time researching the real estate market and choosing the right location to invest in. It’s a good idea to work with a real estate agent who can advise you throughout this process.

  1. Use The 70% Rule to Plan Your Budget

This rule states that an investor should only pay 70% of the after-repair value (ARV) of a property minus the necessary repairs. The ARV is what the home is worth after it has been fully renovated.

  1. Assess Your Skill Set

Knowledge of construction, real estate, and design are good skills to have. It’s okay if you don’t have those skill sets yourself, but that means you need to know how to find the professionals who do.

  1. Finance Your Project

The next step is to figure out how you’ll finance your project. If you don’t have cash on hand to put toward the project, then you’ll want to get preapproved for a loan.

  1. Decide on And Buy Your House

Foreclosed, distressed, and fixer-upper homes are all good options to consider. But you’ll want to use a real estate agent and contractor to help you understand the extent of the work that needs to be done.

  1. Build Sweat Equity

Many entrepreneurs find that in the beginning, sweat equity is a necessary aspect of building a successful business. It’s what gives them the resources they need to keep the momentum to keep going.

  1. Flip the House

Once the repairs are complete, it’s time to resell the house. It’s best to with a real estate agent to help you list the house as they can list the house in the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) database.

Junk Removal Service for House Flippers and Residential Clean Out Servicesdumpster rental in fairfax

Another great tip is to use a professional firm for all the junk removal that will be needed during your house flipping endeavor. Expert real estate clean out services are often required even before you make one repair or upgrade to a distressed property.

While the term refers to the financial state of the mortgage, a prospective house flipper might find themselves to be a bit distressed at the prospect of cleaning out all the debris, trash, and junk often found in a distressed property!

In addition, the small junk and assorted rubbish that is commonly left in vacated properties, you may also encounter old furniture that has been left behind as well as other larger items. The need for appliance disposal, for example, is not at all uncommon when cleaning out houses that have been hastily vacated, such as in a foreclosure situation.

And that’s just the junk removal services you need before you get started on your improvements for your real estate investment!

Depending on the extent of your repairs and upgrades, it is quite likely that you will need the services of professional construction debris removal, as well. House flippers may have the skills and tools to do their own work on the structure – investing “sweat equity” into their purchase. But, if not, they will contract it out to those who do.

The same holds true for junk removal. If you have a truck and experience dealing with junk loading, hauling, and disposal, then you could conceivably do it yourself.

Except you shouldn’t have to. Remember, with house flipping, time is of the essence, and wasting your time with junk removal and disposal is not cost-effective.

This is why Junk King Fairfax specializes in estate clean out services and construction debris removal.

House Flipping and Staging Your Junk

Having said this, we understand that there are times and situations where it does make sense to have a place to put all the debris, trash, rubbish, junk, and other items while working on a project. And piling it all in the driveway or the attached garage is never really a good idea.

But there are alternatives.

One of those is that folding, fabric “dumpster” bag known as a Bagster® bag that you can buy, fill up, and then have hauled away. There are a few major disadvantages to this option, however. The bag only holds three cubic yards of waste, which is less than a pickup truck load. And there’s a weight limit, but no way to know how heavy your load actually is.

In addition, there are strict limits when it comes to picking up your loaded bag, too. It must be at least five feet from any structures, fences, trees, vehicles, or other objects and at least 18 feet of vertical clearance around and above the bag.

At Junk King Fairfax, we’ve got a better idea.

Why bother with a few cubic yards of holding capacity when you can have a user-friendly, easy-to-access MINI Dumpster from Junk King that will manage up to 12 cubic yards of junk?

And, unlike most industrial dumpster bins, our MINI Dumpster is driveway-safe because of its specially designed polymer wheels. That means it can be placed on your driveway, on the street next to your curb, or in your RV parking pad next to the house. In fact, you can have it placed anywhere without fear of damaging concrete or asphalt.

Another great thing about our dumpster rental container is that it’s only four feet high, which makes it easy to load from the sides. However, it has double doors on the end for complete access, and because it’s only eight feet wide and eleven feet long, it only takes up as much space on the ground as a full-size pickup truck.

The bottom line here is that when it comes to the junk removal and construction debris removal tasks during your house flipping project, you have a few great options from an expert service provider – Junk King Fairfax.

How Junk King Is Making Junk Removal Easier This Year!

How Junk King Is Making Junk Removal Easier This Year!

One of the traditional activities that many people take part in every New Year is to make resolutions.

How junk removal could be the best resolution you make this year! While New Year’s resolutions are often made with good intentions as well as a serious and renewed resolve to follow through, many estimates tell us that approximately 80 percent of New Year’s resolutions fail.

What kind of resolutions do most people make every new year?

Surveys have shown that the most common resolutions include:

  • exercising more
  • eating healthier
  • saving money
  • and losing weight

In addition, for some of us, we resolve to clean up our living spaces and get rid of all the clutter. And while we may not make that an “official” New Year’s resolution, we still make an effort to follow through on the goal.

But if we truly take a deep dive into decluttering and getting rid of all the unwanted or unneeded junk in our homes, we can often find that we’re a bit overwhelmed with all the junk that has piled up. And then we have to figure out what to do with it all.

This is why Junk King Fairfax specializes in making junk removal easy for our customers.

When Your Junk Removal Needs Require a Junk Removal Service

Junk can mean a lot of things to a lot of people.

For some, their “junk” is anything and everything they’ve accumulated over the years that they no longer want, need or have room for. And this can include plenty of usable items like clothing, electronics, and even small appliances and furniture.

For many others, junk is simply the broken, unusable, and trashed items and materials in and around their homes.

However, regardless of the state of the items or the size, your junk still has to be removed and disposed of somehow. And the reality is that junk removal can involve much more than the average resident in Fairfax County has the resources for.

How’s that?

Well, when it comes to large, bulky junk items, for example, one of the first things you need is some help. And a truck.

What kind of “large, bulky junk items” are we talking about? For example, anything that won’t fit in the back of your family car. The truth is that typical residential junk removal often includes hauling items that require large trucks and two or more people to move them.

In other words, typical junk removal services include things like:

It is undoubtedly true, of course, that if you have access to a pickup truck and someone who is willing to give you a hand, large junk removal can be a DIY task.

But it’s not easy. And not everyone can do it themselves, which is why a junk removal service is needed.

So, You Want to Do Your Own Junk Removal?Bagster's, while effective, cannot hold as much as a Junk King Dumpster

At Junk King Fairfax, we get it.

Sure, we built our business on providing the absolute best junk removal services in the greater Fairfax region. But we also understand that there are times and situations when it makes more sense to remove junk over a period of days and then have it all taken away.

And there are options for that.

Some folks will go to their local municipal waste management company and rent one of their massive, industrial-type dumpsters for the task. The problem with this approach is that those dumpsters are often too large and often quite expensive.

Others will opt for services like a Bagster® for their DIY junk removal project. While this might seem like a convenient and cost-effective solution for your large junk removal needs, people need to keep in mind that these collapsible, fabric bags can only hold so much.

The Bagster® will hold just over 3,000 pounds of junk and can hold three cubic yards. While this may be sufficient for a small junk removal project, you’re not likely to get too many old, unusable kitchen appliances or three days’ worth of remodeling debris in one of those.

And, at Junk King Fairfax, we understand that, which is why we offer a better option.

  • Do you have a large house cleanout project going into this new year?
  • Are you cleaning out you’re your attic, basement, garage, and closet?
  • Maybe you’re cleaning up and clearing out your backyard, side yards, and outdoor property?

Your best choice for loading and staging your junk and debris is with a rental dumpster from Junk King. Our renowned MINI Dumpster is an efficient, conveniently sized, and user-friendly self-service dumpster rental. And our dumpster rental service provides fair and flexible pricing for all kinds of DIY junk removal projects.

Self-Service or Full-Service – Junk King Fairfax Makes Junk Removal Easyjunk removal fairfax virginia

If you choose to go the self-service route to get rid of your household junk this new year, keep in mind that dumpster rental companies use different pricing models. But at Junk King, we only have simple and transparent prices, terms, and conditions.

Keep in mind, too, that some dumpster rental options have limited capacity, while others are simply far too much for what most folks need in front of their homes. But that’s not the case with the Junk King MINI Dumpster.

Unlike the smaller Bagster®, the Junk King dumpster holds up to 12 cubic yards of junk loaded to the brim, and that’s equivalent to almost five large pickup truck loads. And, unlike some companies, we only charge by volume, not by weight, which means your cost is simply based on how much of the dumpster your junk takes up.

When you choose to rent a MINI Dumpster from Junk King Fairfax, you will always receive friendly service, convenient drop-off and pickup that is on-time, and with fair pricing.

And, of course, if you prefer to have someone else come and do all the heavy lifting, we can do that, as well!

Bagster vs A Dumpster Rental from Junk King

At Junk King Fairfax we know that our MINI Dumpster debris bins are an excellent choice for almost every “do it yourself” junk and debris cleanup project. And these unique roll-off dumpsters are driveway-safe and user-friendly.

As many homeowners and residential contractors know, when it comes to getting rid of renovation debris, excess trash, or any other kind of junk, a dumpster rental can be a convenient way to load and remove it.

But there’s also the Bagster® Bag from Waste Management.

 

Need additional information? Learn more about our dumpster rental services.

 

MINI Dumpster Rental and Bagster® Bags Options

We know that you have options when it comes to dumpster rentals. And for your junk removal needs you may want to consider the differences between our MINI Dumpster and Bagster® Bags.

 

What About the Bagster® Bag?

WM Bagster® Bags are a collapsible bag debris disposal solution that are can be convenient and fairly easy to use. The bag has a low profile, when filled, and fits easily on a curb or driveway.

At four feet deep, eight feet long, and two and half feet high, the Bagster® Bag can hold up to three cubic yards of waste or debris, as long as it’s less than a maximum weight of about 3,300 pounds.

And how much is that, really?

In terms of volume, that’s how much you can get in a compact pickup truck with a seven foot long bed, that’s filled to the top of the cab.

And what are you allowed to put in a WM Bagster® Bag?

You can load it up with things like household junk, old furniture, and renovation debris, but probably not yard waste.

The real problem, however, is that WM doesn’t allow items such as e-waste. For example, let’s say you have a half dozen old TVs that you have finally decided to get rid of. You searched “TV recycling near me” and now you’ve decided that just using a Bagster® bag would be a straightforward way to go.

Except that you can’t use it for old appliances, TVs, and other e-waste. Which simply means an additional trip to a donation center or some facility that manages electronic recycling.

 

junk hauling vs dumpster rental fairfax

Enter the Junk King MINI Dumpster

First, it’s important to keep in mind that our MINI Dumpster is driveway-safe with specially designed polymer wheels. This means it can be placed anywhere you need it on your property without fear of damaging concrete. Unlike the Bagster, our dempster rental units are large capacity, steel debris bins.

Also, unlike the Bagster® Bag, the MINI has steel sides and won’t collapse when you are trying to fill it. Yet, our dumpster rental container is only four feet high, so it’s easy to load. And because it’s only eight feet wide and eleven feet long, it takes up no more room than a full-size pickup truck.

But it can hold far more than a Bagster® Bag or a full-size pickup truck.

In fact, with its substantial 12-cubic yard debris capacity, it can hold the equivalent of five full-size pickup truck loads with room left over. In fact, it has four times the capacity of a WM Bagster® Bag.

And weight is not a consideration.

And, by the way, you can put all the TVs, electronics, and appliances you can fit in it!

Of course, you can’t use it for hazardous wastes, but you can put just about anything and everything else in our dumpster rental.

Unlike some dumpster rental services, Junk King never charges by the weight of the load. In fact, we only charge you for the amount of space taken you use in the MINI Dumpster.

 

Rent Your Junk King MINI Today

Another Advantage of a MINI Dumpster Rental: Junk King’s Transparent Pricing

With Junk King Fairfax junk hauling services, it doesn’t matter if you choose our full-service junk removal or our self-service dumpster rental option. The good news is that you still only pay only for the amount of space your junk items take up in our truck or MINI Dumpster.

That’s not how it works with companies that provide rental dumpsters, Instead, they often charge a single price or, worse, they charge by the weight of the junk load.

Not with Junk King. We provide flexible pricing options with our dumpster rentals, which gives you better value and fair pricing.

So, how does it work?

Pricing for our MINI Dumpster rental is made up of three tiers of prices based on how full your rental dumpster is when you’re done using it. These tiers are referred to as:

-Minimum

-Half-full

-Full

 

Our minimum price is the lowest fee we charge to drop off and pick up a MINI Dumpster. And, if you only have a few items or a small quantity of debris that fills less than a third of the dumpster, you’ll only be charged the minimum price.

If your unwanted items and junk materials fill the MINI Dumpster to about half full, you’ll only be charged the half-full price. And, if your rental dumpster is close to full or up to the brim, we will then charge the full price.

MINI Dumpsters are especially convenient for project cleanups like house cleanouts or renovations. When we deliver the MINI Dumpster to your home or place of work, you typically keep it for three days before we return to pick it up at a pre-scheduled time.

But there are times when three days isn’t quite long enough, and we understand that, too.

So, for those longer projects or if things get behind or delayed, we can also arrange for MINI Dumpster rental periods of five days or even seven days, if needed.

And we will never surprise you with any hidden or added fees!

Junk King is More Than Great Pricing: Red MINI Dumpsters and Green Junk Disposal

Junk King Fairfax is a green junk removal enterprise, and we are proud to be a part of the only national junk hauling company with the goal of recycling 60 percent or more of every load. This is part of Junk King’s eco-friendly mission to ensure that as much junk that we collect as possible is recycled or donated.

This is just one of the ways we continue to demonstrate our commitment to being the premier eco-friendly junk removal service in America.

In addition to assisting our residential friends and neighbors with their bulk recycling needs, Junk King Fairfax is able to do the same for all of our local businesses and other organizations.

And at Junk King Fairfax, we are committed to keeping as many of your items out of our landfills, as possible. This is why we stand out from most local junk haulers who simply dump junk into landfills or at incineration plants.

Tips To Help Declutter Your Fairfax Home This Holiday Season

There’s something undeniably magic about the holidays in the Fairfax region that always enchants locals and visitors alike. It could be the way the snow and hoarfrost decorate the trees above carpets of shimmering white fields. Or perhaps it’s simply the aura of so many generations celebrating Christmas in the region for the last four centuries. Whatever the reason, the holiday season is a wonderful time to get out when you can and enjoy the beauty of this part of the Capital region and Old Dominion, the Commonwealth of Virginia. And this is especially true if you desperately need to declutter your Fairfax home!

What to do After You Manage to Declutter Your Fairfax Home

Homes all over this part of the country often have the same problem: the need to declutter. No matter whether your house or apartment is in Silver Spring, Ashburn, Manassas, Vienna, Alexandria, Centerville or Fairfax, clutter and excess junk are a problem.

And for those whose living spaces have become particularly bad, it’s a fair question to ask, “Where do I start?”

It’s no shame to admit that you might need some help in figuring out how to declutter your home. Not that there’s a particularly “right” way to do it. But there are better ways. And the best way is to start with junk removal.

The problem with this for many homeowners, renters, and others is identifying what constitutes “junk” in their home. They say that one person’s junk is another person’s treasure. Okay – so, maybe that’s not what they say, but you get the idea!

Because junk removal is a basic first step to effective decluttering, we suggest that anything you have stored in your basement, attic, garage, closets, or outside storage shed for more than a year – and may never use – should be gotten rid of.

Categorizing all your “stuff” into piles labeled “Keep,” “Donate,” and “Toss” is a great start. But you can’t simply make new piles and then cram it all back into the same spaces in your home. You must take the next step of real junk removal.

Which is why Junk King Fairfax specializes in residential junk removal.

Decluttering Your Home and Recycling: Having a Green Holiday Season

Because so much of what makes up the clutter and junk in our homes is actually recyclable, it makes no sense to simply load it all in a pickup truck, take it to a landfill – if you even have one nearby – and dumping it all. And this is especially true for junk items such as old electronics, or e-waste.

The best solution for excess electronics and e-waste is electronic recycling. But how do you make that happen?

Well, the good news is that Junk King Fairfax can help eliminate your extra junk and recycle electronics and e-waste, as well. Electronic recycling also reminds us that recycling is not simply limited to metal, plastic, paper, and glass. And the reality of recycling is that there is much more in your junk and clutter piles that can be recycled or reused than just the electronics, as well.

And, if your unwanted stuff is still usable, then you should definitely separate your junk and clutter items into “donate” piles. That way, you can arrange for these to be transported to your local donation center or two. And those donation centers could include Junk King since we make it one of our goals to divert as much usable junk to charitable organizations as possible.

Once you’ve purged your living spaces of all the excess junk and clutter, it’s time to assess your existing storage needs and availability.

 

Learn about the importance of recycling. 

Conquering the Clutter Conundrum with Storage

When we speak of storage, we are not talking about all those places you crammed your unneeded or unwanted stuff into previously. Now you must relegate your “stored items” to dedicated storage spaces and only as much as reasonably required.

It’s an inescapable fact that almost everyone living in the Fairfax area, like the rest of the country, needs extra storage space.

At minimum, there are two feasible options for most homeowners and renters that do not involve renting self-storage units. These would be outdoor storage sheds that can be placed in your backyard or side yard, and good garage storage systems.

Outdoor, residential storage sheds can be as small as three feet by three feet and just six feet tall, to massive sheds that could double as a cabin. The only limitations are space to place them and your budget.

On the other hand, for those who have a garage and want to use it as either a dedicated storage space, or still park cars in it while optimizing the remaining space for storage, both are feasible. What that does not mean is piling junk along the walls, up on the rafters, and down the middle of your garage!

As one source explains,

Assess your garage storage space and begin storing items in their proper homes. Here are some easy (and free) ways to create more storage space in your garage:

  • Utilize vertical space
  • Use what you have, or purchase the right products
  • Make sure dangerous items (chemicals, tools) are stored in a locked cabinet if children are in the house

When planning your garage storage, don’t buy an organizing system and then install it and see if it fits all of your stuff. Instead, take a conservative approach to storage planning. Start with some basic garage organizers, like shelving and a good step stool. Work with the basics and then expand out as you see fit.

After you have successfully reduced your clutter, donated what you can, and optimized and maximized your storage space, you still need to get rid of the remaining junk.

And there’s a “best” way to do that, as well.

Junk Removal in Fairfax Need Not Be a DIY Project Like Decluttering Your Home

Of course, you have several options when it comes to getting rid of your household junk and unwanted clutter. A fairly common approach for some people, a Bagster bag is a small, portable, three-cubic yard bag made of a tough, woven material. Think: small “collapsible” dumpster.

However, the problem with Bagster bags is that they are only for single use, and you must first purchase the bag at a home improvement store or online.

While this option does have a certain appeal, it may not be sufficient for your needs and does involve quite a bit of work on your part. Making a call to Junk King Fairfax, on the other hand, is easy. And not only is it cost-effective, but they will pick up and haul away all your junk material no matter how much it is.

And they do all the heavy lifting!

You could be living in Herndon, Arlington, Bethesda, Falls Church, Springfield, or Washington and the service is still the same. Reliable, efficient, and affordable. Oh, and did we mention green? It’s true: Junk King always takes the time and the effort needed to consistently recycle as much junk as we possibly can. In fact, we routinely recycle as much as 60 percent or more of everything we collect.

Fairfax area residents can be confident that not only will all their excess clutter find a new home, when possible, but that their junk will not all simply end up in one of the rapidly diminishing number of landfills in our area.

What To Do With Old Propane Tanks If You Live In The Fairfax Area

Old Propane Tanks

 

Baseball may be America’s “National Pastime” but grilling and barbecuing come in as a close second. How much of a pastime, you ask?

 

Well, according to one source,

 

  • About 7 out of 10 U.S. adults possess a smoker or a grill, while in Canada, the ratio is 8 out of 10. (Go, Canada, eh!)
  • 75 percent of owners grill during the winter months.
  • The most popular foods on the grill are burgers with 85%, followed by steak at 80%, hot dogs at 79 percent, and chicken at 73 percent – in case you were wondering!

 

And a survey conducted by the Hearth, Patio & Barbecue Association (HPBA) in 2020 asked consumers about which types of grills they owned. Approximately 61 percent of the respondents indicated ownership of a gas grill. 49 percent owned a charcoal grill.

 

Clearly, some folks have one of each!

 

But what about the “junk” from old grills, tools, or even propane tanks? In fact, do you know what to do with old propane tanks and other grilling and backyard items?

 

No worries! Junk King Fairfax specializes in yard waste and scrap metal removal.

Old Propane Tanks: Replace or Recycle?

 

Anyone with a gas grill (or outdoor gas-powered heater) knows that you can almost always take your empty containers to a propane gas provider and exchange them for new tanks. For a fee, of course.

 

But it’s a lot less expensive to exchange a tank than to buy a new one.

 

At some point, however, every propane tank, cylinder, or bottle, will degrade and reach the end of its useful life. Propane dealers know that those smaller, portable propane containers – the small cylinders and bottles, for example – will usually reach this point sooner than the larger, stationary bulk tanks.

 

So, what are your options when it comes to disposing of a propane tank?

 

If a tank is still serviceable, you may be able to recycle the propane tank. 

 

Since there’s likely to be some propane left in the tank, many municipal landfills, recycling centers, and scrap metal dealers will not accept old or damaged tanks for recycling. However, some propane exchange companies will take your unused propane cylinders and recycle them at no cost to you.

 

 

 

Yes, Even Old Propane Tanks Can Be Recycled

Recycle Old Propane Tanks

According to Propane.org, a local propane supplier should also be able to direct you to a specialized recycler, who can accept your tank.

 

“Another good reason to choose a recycler that specializes in propane tanks is safety. To recycle a tank, it must be serviceable and able to meet all safety requirements, because it will be refilled and reused again and again.

 

So, before you dispose of your propane tank, consider your options for recycling:

 

 

  • Refill/Reuse your tank.

 

  • Call a local propane supplier about recycling your tank.
  • Talk to your local hazardous waste disposal site about taking the tank.
  • Contact your local public works department about recycling your tank.”

 

 

 

How do you dispose of an old propane tank if it’s damaged or is no longer serviceable, and it’s not possible to recycle it? Fortunately, there are a few options available to you for proper propane tank disposal.

 

For large, bulk propane tanks, you can contact a licensed propane company for removal. They can safely purge any remaining propane from the tank and have the specialized tools to remove the tank safely.

 

For disposing of small propane tanks that are damaged or unserviceable, contact a propane supplier or your local household hazardous waste (HHW) collection site.

 

In Fairfax County, by the way, you cannot legally dispose of your old propane tanks in your household trash. According to the official County website,

 

“Do not include: gas tanks, propane or refrigerant tanks. If a private company collects your trash and recyclables, contact them to arrange for a special collection. If you have county trash and recycling service, call 703-802-3322, TTY 711 or schedule the collection online.”

 

However, the simplest solution would be to make a call to Junk King Fairfax and let us take care of all your old propane tanks, broken down patio furniture, and gas grills that have passed their shelf life.

 

Yes, your old gas grill, too.

Can I Properly Dispose of My Old Gas Grill Myself?

 

With proper maintenance and replacement of parts, you can usually extend the life of your gas grill. But the day will come when it simply needs to be replaced. And it can be difficult to know what to do next.

 

You can take care of your old gas grill disposal yourself – if you really want to – but you should follow these recommended steps to help you do so safely and responsibly.

 

 

  • – Clean all surfaces as thoroughly as possible of any food debris.

 

  • – Make sure the gas is off, disconnect the propane tank, and then disassemble the grill. Be sure to wear work gloves for protection.
  • – Steel, stainless steel, cast iron, brass and aluminum parts can be recycled at your local scrap metal dealer or at a recycling center; visit earth911.com to find one near you.
  • – Most plastic parts can also be recycled; follow local municipal guidelines for plastic recycling.
  • – Metal-plated parts, caster wheels, gauges, hinges, and regulator/hose assemblies should be disposed of in your standard domestic garbage waste disposal system.
  • – For batteries and electronics, check with your local government for disposal practices. Also, be sure to contact your manufacturer or consult your owner’s manual for further details.

 

 

 

Along with your old gas grill that has seen its last backyard cookout, you may have other backyard or patio appliances that need to go. 

 

Maybe it’s a propane patio heater or a propane powered outdoor fire pit? If they are unusable or simply have become quite old and need to be replaced, they also need to be disposed of properly. 

 

Here’s a few helpful tips for properly disposing of any gas-powered patio appliances:

 

  • Clean any debris from the surfaces.
  • Make sure the propane tank is off and disconnected from the regulator/hose before removing it from the appliance.
  • Wear work gloves to protect against any sharp edges or metal burrs.
  • Any steel, stainless steel, cast iron, brass, or aluminum parts can be recycled at your local scrap metal dealer.
  • Many plastic parts can also be recycled.
  • Any door magnets, fake logs, lava rocks, wheels, weight plates, or regulator hose assemblies should be placed in your residential garbage bins.

 

On the other hand, if you aren’t keen on doing all this yourself and dismantling and breaking down equipment and appliances just aren’t your thing, the easiest option is to call the team at Junk King Fairfax.

 

We’ll come out, you simply point, and we do all the heavy lifting! Easy as that.

In Fairfax County, Recycling Is A Priority When It Comes To Junk Removal


Recycling Fairfax

 

Fairfax County is somewhat unique in a number of ways in addition to simply being a great place to live.

 

With an estimated 1,150,000-plus residents within the county borders, it is the most populous jurisdiction in the Commonwealth of Virginia, with around 13 percent of the population. And that population was the first in the United States to reach a six-figure median household income.

 

While it is mostly suburban in nature, Fairfax County is much more than suburbs and shopping centers. It’s also the home to the Central Intelligence Agency, National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, National Reconnaissance Office, and National Counterterrorism Center, as well as the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.

 

But, most importantly, Fairfax County is home to over a million Virginians who love their corner of the country. 

 

That includes communities such as Fairfax Station, Chantilly, Annandale, Lorton, Tysons, and many others. And all these communities have a few things in common in addition to being in Virginia, and one of those is that, in Fairfax County, Recycling is taken quite seriously.

 

Which is why Junk King Fairfax specializes in bulk recycling and recyclable junk removal.

Junk King Fairfax and Why Recycling Matters

 

Junk King has always made recycling a priority. 

 

In fact, when Junk King was first founded back in 2005, we were the nation’s first green and recycling-based junk removal company. And that hasn’t changed after all these years! In fact, we still recycle most of the material we pick-up. In fact, we work hard to recycle as much as 60 percent or more of everything we pick up each day, including plastic, glass, and scrap metal.

 

This is just one of the ways we continue to demonstrate our commitment to being the premier eco-friendly junk removal service in America.

 

And we understand that, while most of our Fairfax County neighbors can manage much of their own recycling, there are also times when the sheer volume of recyclable waste or junk material is more than the average homeowner or renter can, or wants, to manage.

 

In addition to assisting our residential friends and neighbors with their bulk recycling needs, Junk King Fairfax is able to do the same for all of our local businesses and other organizations.

 

We’ve said it already, but it warrants repeating: Recycling matters. 

 

How? Well, consider these statistics from ComfyLiving.net :

 

 

  • On average, every American produces 1,609 pounds of garbage every year.
  • In 2018, 69.1 million tons of municipal solid waste were recycled in the US.
  • Americans throw away 20 billion disposable diapers every year.
  • Sweden dumps only 1% of trash in landfills.
  • On the global level, we produce 2.12 billion tons of waste every year.
  • China produces the largest amount of plastic packaging waste in the world.
  • About 68% of paper and paperboard was recycled in 2018.
  • 91% of plastic waste hasn’t been recycled.
  • Approximately 3 million tons of glass containers were recycled in the US in 2017.
  • The recycling industry creates more jobs than the solid waste management industry.

 

 

Fairfax County Recycling Matters, Too

When You Need Junk Removal, Reston Residents Rely on Junk King

Junk King Fairfax

 

To many folks who don’t live there, Reston is just another mid-sized town in Northern Virginia. But Reston is much more than that.

 

Founded in 1964 by Robert E. Simon, Reston is not an incorporated town or city, but is a census-designated place. Reston’s municipal services are provided by both Fairfax County and a nonprofit called the Reston Association.

 

A planned community, Reston was founded on the principles of: 

 

“creating a community that included places for residents to live, work, do business, play, attend school and places of worship, all while conserving open space.”

 

It appears to have suited the community well. Today, Reston has more than 1,300 acres of maintained open space that includes four lakes, three ponds, 20 miles of stream, 800 acres of woodlands, and two golf courses.

 

But, like any other community of over 66,000 residents, Reston needs junk removal services.

 

Which is why Junk King Fairfax specializes in providing junk removal for the Reston area.

Northern Virginia, Fairfax County, and Reston – When You Need Junk Removal

 

Located in northern Fairfax County, Reston’s closest neighbors are Great Falls, Wolf Trap, Franklin Farm, Floris, McNair, Herndon, and Dranesville.

 

So, what else do all these towns have in common? They all need junk removal services now and again, and Junk King Fairfax is ready to take care of them when they need it.

 

One of the great things about being able to call Junk King for your junk removal needs is how quickly they respond and how quickly they work. Booking a pickup is simple and easy, and once they arrive on site, removal and hauling your junk can happen easily, as well. 

But what kind of junk can we pick up? Will we take anything and everything? Just about!

 

Junk Removal Infographic

 

Of course, we can’t pick up or dispose of hazardous materials. And this includes items that are classified by the EPA as “Household Hazardous Waste” or HHW.

 

They define these items as,

 

“[S]ome leftover household products that can catch fire, react, or explode under certain circumstances, or that are corrosive or toxic as household hazardous waste. Products, such as paints, cleaners, oils, batteries, and pesticides can contain hazardous ingredients and require special care when you dispose of them.”

 

You can see why we wouldn’t want to handle items like these. Besides, federal law prohibits any carrier that is not specifically a hazardous waste transporter to pick up and haul these materials. And hazardous waste transporters are regulated by both state and federal agencies.

 

Which means that not just anyone can take those items to dispose of them.

 

The good news is that many communities have collection programs for HHW to reduce potential harm posed by these chemicals.

 

One way to find a program in or near Reston would be to search for “household hazardous waste” near your zip code in the Earth 911 database for more information. Or you can contact your local environmental, health, or solid waste agency to learn about permanent or periodic HHW collections near you.

For Junk Removal, Reston Has a Green and Affordable Option

 

If it were feasible, it’s likely that most of us would be tempted to simply throw all our waste and junk into a landfill. Fortunately for us – and for the planet – that’s not always possible. But along with avoiding landfills and the environmental damage they can cause, most of us need to know that much of what we do end up throwing into the garbage is actually reusable.

 

In fact, most of the waste that’s generated in the country – up to 80 percent or more – can be effectively recycled. And that includes all the things we tend to think of as “junk.”

 

The truth is that, when it comes to “junk” items and junk removal, Reston, much of it can often be reused or repurposed with relatively little processing. This is why Junk King Fairfax makes every effort to recycle or reuse everything we bring into our doors. In fact, we routinely recycle up to 60 percent or more of all the junk items we pick up every day from every job. 

 

It’s part of the Junk King corporate mission and it’s part of ours, as well.

 

In addition to “being green”, we pride ourselves on providing our customers with world-class customer service. As the Number One rated junk removal company in North America, it’s just a normal part of what we do. And part of giving great customer service is offering the best pricing for junk removal in our service area.

 

That includes Reston as well as all the other communities in the greater Fairfax area.

 

At Junk King, we believe in always offering fair and transparent pricing. For one, that means no hidden fees or charges. It also means we offer free estimates before you even book a pickup appointment with us. 

 

In addition, we provide you with several ways to get a free estimate:

 

On-site: The most accurate way for us to get you a free, no-obligation on-site estimate.

 

By Phone: Call 1-888-888-JUNK or live chat with our customer service representatives.

 

By Text: Text a photo of your items to 737-888-5865, and we will text back an estimate.

 

Online: Click the “Pricing” tab in the menu above, then scroll to “Pricing Estimator” and click the green “Launch Pricing Estimator” button.

 

Another feature of our great pricing is that we do not charge you by the weight of your load. We only charge you for the amount of space your junk takes up in our truck. This means savings for you and fair, transparent pricing from us.

When Your Cleaning Project Could Use A Dumpster Rental

 dumpster rental in fairfax

 

For most of us living in the Fairfax, Virginia area, some junk removal now and again is just a part of life.

 

We need to get rid of things, for example. Sometimes quite a few things, or large piles of things. Or we need to complete a major cleaning project that generates quite a bit of junk and debris, day after day. 

 

That’s a problem when there’s more than we can fit in our trash bins and we don’t have a good place to pile it up until we can haul it away. 

 

We’re talking about those times when our junk removal isn’t simply the result of cleaning out the garage or ending up with too many large piles of yard waste after a day-long landscaping project. 

 

No, we’re talking about times when our cleaning project takes several days. And every day generates more junk, more debris, and more trash. We’re talking about having the option of either adding to those piles day after day or making “dump runs” every day. 

 

And neither of these options are preferable.

 

Which is why Junk King Fairfax specializes in offering a convenient dumpster rental service.

Junk King Fairfax Means Convenient Junk Removal Options

 

At Junk King Fairfax we are proud of our fast, efficient, and affordable full-service junk removal. But we’re just as proud of our self-service option that utilizes our handy MINI Dumpster rental.

 

With one of our unique dumpster rentals, you load your junk, trash, and other debris yourself. But with our user-friendly and driveway-safe MINI Dumpster design, your work is made easy because placing your junk items and other unwanted materials inside this roll-off dumpster is a breeze! 

 

Our MINI Dumpster rental is available to homeowners, renters, business owners, contractors, and just about anyone else who needs an efficient bin for staging junk – even schools or churches.

 

In addition, Junk King’s self-service junk removal uses a conveniently sized dumpster that is still perfect for any large junk or debris that might come from your home, office, or place of business. When we designed our MINI Dumpster, we went all out to make the process easy and create an easy-to-load roll-off dumpster with a huge, 12-cubic yard load capacity. 

 

Are you wondering how much that is?

 

Well, if you consider that the average clothes dryer measures about one cubic yard in size, try to picture a dozen of them lined up in three rows of four machines each. You could fit all of them inside of a Junk King MINI Dumpster – and still have room to spare!

 

Have you ever loaded (or unloaded) material with a pickup truck? If so, try to imagine a truck bed full to the brim with gravel.

 

Now, a bed of a standard, full size pickup truck is eight feet long, just over five feet wide, and about a foot and a half high to the top of the sidewalls. This means that it will hold close to 2.5 cubic yards of gravel when it’s loaded level full.

 

Which means that a Junk King MINI Dumpster can hold up to five pickup truck loads of gravel (or junk!)

Still wondering if a Junk King MINI Dumpster rental is the right option for your project?

 

Dumpster Rental

 

There are probably dozens of great reasons for using a dumpster rental for your cleaning project and these are just a few. The beauty of having a MINI Dumpster at your home or office is that you have three days (or more!) to dump your junk items, debris, trash, and waste materials. That means you can be loading when you want to and at your own pace. 

 

No matter the size or location of your major cleaning projects, a MINI Dumpster rental from Junk King Fairfax can be the optimum junk removal solution for you.

Junk King Fairfax Means Great Dumpster Rental Pricing

 

At Junk King Fairfax, when you choose our self-service junk removal option using a dumpster rental, you pay only for the space you use in our MINI Dumpster.

 

Our dumpster rental pricing has three tiers, minimum, half, and full. (Note that the industry standard is to simply charge a single price no matter how much you put in their dumpster!) But we do things differently at Junk King. And one of those things is to provide tiered pricing options that give you better value with your dumpster rental.

 

  • Our minimum price is our lowest charge to drop off and pick up the dumpster.

 

  • If you have only a few items, you may qualify for the minimum charge. If your dumpster is at or close to half full, you’ll pay about a discount from the full price.

 

  • If your dumpster is more than half full, you pay our full price for dumpster rental service.

 

However, if you were to decide to opt for our full-service junk hauling and removal, we offer you four different ways to get an estimate before your book with us. You can get a no obligation on site estimate, an estimate by phone, by text, or even with our easy-to-use online pricing estimator.

 

Why do we do all that, you ask? Because at Junk King Fairfax we believe in fair and transparent pricing.

Junk King Fairfax Does Yard Waste Removal

yard waste removal fairfax

If you live in Fairfax county, getting rid of your yard waste will be getting a little more difficult. Beginning April 19, Fairfax County no longer accepts yard debris–to include grass clippings and leaves–in plastic bags.

Many homeowners and renters living in northern Virginia and Fairfax County have backyards, while others live on properties with large outdoor spaces containing broad lawns, maybe some wooded areas, and plenty of room to play and relax.

While most of these residents have little problem with the periodic mowing, trimming, and subsequent yard waste removal, that’s usually because they have smaller properties, or they have landscaping firms take care of it for them. 

But not everyone has “people for that” nor do they really need to. But when they do engage in a serious cleanup or landscaping maintenance, the bigger the space, the bigger the mess! 

In other words, regardless of how large or how small your property, being a homeowner, tenant, or even a property manager means you often have yard waste you need to dispose of.

Spring Cleaning can Mean Outdoor Cleaning, Too!

If you’re feeling particularly ambitious this spring after more than a year being stuck inside more often than not, you might want to tackle more than just the house with a spring cleaning. In fact, your yards and other outdoor spaces may be screaming for a major cleanup.

We get it!

However, once you’ve completed your outdoor spring cleaning you may find that you now have a great deal of yard debris and waste. If you compost, you can probably reuse or recycle some of these materials. But what do you do if you have far more yard waste than you can manage yourself?

While you can certainly put some of it in your recycling bin, as we will explain farther along here, that may not be the best solution. And what do you do if you have more than you can put in there? While Virginia does not ban yard waste from landfills, many states do. 

(By the way, the state of Virginia does ban asbestos, car batteries, liquid waste, medical waste, and motor oil.)

The good news is that your local Junk King Fairfax waste removal team is ready to provide you with efficient and affordable yard waste removal.

What can we take?

Pretty much everything and anything other than hazardous materials. If you have it sitting outside or in your yard, we can most likely haul it away for you. In fact, we have a long list of items we take, including:

  • – Branches
  • – Clippings
  • – Stumps
  • – Soil and sod
  • – Landscaping debris
  • – Fencing
  • – Firewood, lumber, or old timber

So, you don’t waste your time making trips to a waste transfer station or a landfill when you can make a quick call to Junk King Fairfax. Let our professional team with our large truck do it all for you.

Green Waste Removal for Green Waste

At Junk King Fairfax we are quite serious about being a green junk removal operation. And we demonstrate this by our commitment to the goal of our company’s environmentally friendly mission, which is to recycle, reuse, and donate as much as possible

Junk King is the only nationally recognized junk removal company that regularly maintains a recycling rate of 60 percent or more of everything we haul away.

And believe it or not, this includes organic yard waste – or “green” waste.

Actually, when it comes to composting, a distinction is made between “green” items and “brown” items. The green materials are rich in nitrogen and, among other things, these include grass clippings and leaves. Brown materials provide much-needed carbon and are made up of branches and twigs.

Because it is all compostable and reusable, it can all be thought of as “green” waste, however. But there’s a problem when all this gets waste dumped into a landfill instead of composted or otherwise reused.

According to a post at Basmati.com,

“The dangers of tossing yard waste into the landfill can lead to negative effects one might not consider. As the Sierra Club points out, “it can generate methane gas and acidic leachate and, according to the EPA, can seep underground and into nearby buildings where it has the potential to explode.”

Old leaves, grass, and other clippings and trimmings can contribute to groundwater pollution and hinder waste incineration. In fact, seemingly harmless grass and leaves have an entire rap sheet of unfriendly ecological effects when put into landfills. 

The good news is that Junk King Fairfax is trained and equipped to take care of proper disposal of yard waste for you. We can come out to your home and haul away any yard waste and debris that you need to get rid of and do so in a green, eco-friendly manner.

When You Need Property Cleanout Services In Fairfax

property cleanout services

People and businesses are constantly on the move.

More than 12 percent of tenants in rental homes and apartments move annually. Unfortunately, there are no accurate figures for commercial tenants, but the common problem with all those vacated properties is that they cannot be leased again until the junk is removed and the property is cleaned.

And each day that rental property remains unoccupied is another day without revenue.  

Are you a manager of a vacant property in Fairfax who needs to clear out junk left by the previous tenants? It’s one of the more frustrating aspects of property management, but a property that’s been vacated must be cleaned – and cleaned out – before it can be leased again.

This is why Junk King Fairfax offers expert property cleanout services.

Property Cleanouts – By the Numbers

It’s estimated that in the United States there are over 44,000,000 renter-occupied households, representing over one-third of the population. While many of these are single-family homes being rented, a vast majority of renter-occupied households are apartments.

In Fairfax County, for example, the total number of rental complex apartments and townhouses in January 2019 was over 81,50 units. That’s in a county with almost 1,150,000 residents. And, as of 2018, there were more than 31,150 businesses in the county, a large percentage of which operated in leased properties. 

In the city of Fairfax, the population was estimated to be about 24,600 in 2021, of which, about 18,300 are over 18. While almost 85 percent of married couples represent homeowners, the overall level of homeownership in the city of Fairfax stands at about 70 percent. This means close to 30 percent of adults – or 5,500 residents – are potentially renters.

And one source listed just over 200 commercial properties for lease in the city of Fairfax, with over 1,200 commercial real estate properties available for lease or rent in Fairfax County, Virginia, including office spaces, retail, industrial buildings, and other types of commercial properties.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau almost 25 percent of tenants in renter-occupied housing units lived in a different location the year before. Their reasons for moving vary, but the main reason people relocate is a job transfer, which accounts for almost 10 percent of moves.

 

When Your Fairfax Rental Property Needs a Cleanout

As any landlord or property manager knows, cleaning out rental homes, condominiums, and apartments can be a tough task requiring physical strength and hard work. For example, if large, old furniture and other bulky items are left behind, someone often has to haul these heavy items down flights of stairs and through hallways.

And it is always an unfortunate situation when property managers must dispose of a former tenant’s abandoned possessions.

When a tenant must vacate because of legal reasons – evictions and so forth – it can be a stressful experience for everyone involved. Unfortunately, many tenants do not fully clean the properties before they relocate, especially if they are being evicted. This is often true for those tenants who break their leases and move out without notice.

Too many times, tenants simply move out and leave the burden of cleaning out and disposing of their “junk” on the landlord or property manager.

These same types of scenarios occur with rental homes, as well. And, while some larger property management firms have the resources required to effectively handle these property cleanout situations, most property managers end up spending far more time and money than they should just getting rid of the junk.

In some situations, they may be able to sell or auction off some of the items, but this is not as common of a practice as people might think. In most scenarios, abandoned items are simply treated as “junk” that the tenants didn’t want to bother taking with them and are disposed of.

Property rental professionals also work with short-term rental homes, vacation properties, duplexes, triplexes, and other types of leased properties. Like house and apartment renters, these tenants can also vacate rental units leaving large amounts of old furniture and other items that need to be cleaned out and properly disposed of.

And, like apartment managers and other landlords, commercial property managers can easily get overwhelmed with the work required for property cleanouts and junk hauling.

But somebody’s got to do it…

Great Pricing with Junk King Fairfax for Property Cleanout Services

At Junk King, we pride ourselves on providing world-class customer service. As the Number One junk removal company in North America, it’s simply part of what we do. What we also do is offer the best pricing for junk removal in our service area.

That includes Fairfax as well as all the other communities in the greater Washington DC area.

And that’s because Junk King Fairfax guarantees to beat any written estimate from any comparable operator. In other words any comparable junk removal company that is licensed, insured, and has a recycling-based operation like Junk King.

In addition, we provide you with several ways to get a free estimate:

  • On-site: The most accurate way for us to get you a free, no-obligation on-site estimate.
  • By Phone: Call 1-888-888-JUNK or live chat with our customer service representatives.
  • By Text: Text a photo of your items to 737-888-5865, and we will text back an estimate.
  • Online: Click the “Pricing” tab in the menu above, then scroll to “Pricing Estimator” and click the green “Launch Pricing Estimator” button.

Another aspect of our great pricing is that we do not charge you by the weight of your load.

This is how many other firms in the junk removal industry work, but it’s a disadvantage for customers whose junk items are particularly heavy. In other words, a half-truckload of heavy furniture and old appliances would cost you far more than a half-truckload of old clothes and bedding, for example. 

That’s not how we do things at Junk King. We only charge you for the amount of space your junk takes up in our truck. This means savings for you and simple, upfront pricing from us.
