We all know if you dial 9-1-1, you’ll be connected to emergency services and 4-1-1 is for information. What about 3-1-1? Here in Houston, if you dial 3-1-1 you’re be connected to the many agencies working in City Hall that control things like graffiti removal, trash pickup and illegal dumping. Residents are encourages to use 3-1-1 if they see someone tossing out trash where they shouldn’t. They will also dispatch city crews to abandoned lots or roads where garbage has been left behind. Wouldn’t it be nice if there were a number you could call to set up a junk removal appointment for your home? Actually, there is such a number: That would be Junk King Houston.
This branch of the national junk hauling service opened in 2011. In just a few short years, the dedicated staff at Junk King Houston has managed to take their company to the top of the list for customer satisfaction and dependable service for all kinds of junk removal. One of the guiding principles for Junk King is to keep as much rubbish out of local landfills as possible. The crew who works for Junk King Houston has been trained to keep an eye out for any item that can be recycled or refurbished. For recycling, those pieces are dropped off at a certified facility who can handle the grinding or melting job. For refurbishing, items are delivered to charities that can provide a little TLC to a sofa or table and get it ready for a family in need. Thanks to these efforts, Junk King Houston is happy to report that they are able to keep the vast majority of what they collect out of the area landfills.
