Houston Rubbish Removal

Houston is definitely an energy town. As such, we like to keep an eye on all types of energy news. Recently, the Houston Chronicle featured a story about a Wyoming-based trucking company that is facing some serious fines for illegal dumping. What does this have to do with energy? As it happens, this trucking company has been working in the boomtowns of North Dakota and is accused of illegally dumping saltwater. That is something that is used in oil extraction and needs to be disposed of in a responsible matter. Otherwise, it can contaminant the water supply. This is such a serious problem for this company that they could be slapped with $2 million in fines. Here in Houston, illegal dumping is taken very seriously. You might only see news stories when a dumpsite has gotten out of control. However, if someone were to leave a single chair or table out on the curb that would be considered illegal dumping. It’s the also the kind of dumping that can have you slapped with a fine.

A tour of the back alleys in downtown Houston will reveal plenty of examples of illegal dumping. Careless individuals are using these areas to unload furniture, bags of trash and auto parts. What’s really sad is that there is a responsible company standing by to help anyone with rubbish removal. Junk King Houston can provide anyone with a team of strong movers capable of hauling all kinds of junk from homes, apartments or businesses.

A rubbish removal appointment with Junk King starts with a call to the dispatch center. You might be fortunate enough to land a same day appointment. That will mean the Junk King crew can be at your property within hours. You won’t have your junk long!

Celebrate Earth Day In Houston With Green Junk Removal

This Earth Day, the Cypresswood Water Conservation Garden received the distinct honor of being one of 31 sites that have been certified as 100% sustainable. In the case of this garden, sustainable means feeding the plants with rainwater alone. This is a way to show local residents the importance of water conservation. This doesn’t mean we all have to switch to rainwater for all our needs. On the other hand, the average family uses up to 30 gallons of water just to keep their lawns green. Of that amount, almost half the water is wasted due to runoff or over watering. At Cypresswood, you can get some valuable tips on proper water use and how to make your own gardens sustainable. This is a great way to get into the Earth Day spirit.

Another way to celebrate Earth Day would be to clean up your property with the help of Junk King. Earth Day is all about reducing carbon footprints through recycling.

Either way, your junk is going to be kept out of a landfill where it won’t do anybody any good.

It doesn’t matter if you’re throwing away a piano or a beanbag chair, the Junk King crew will handle the situation.
