The Junk Removal Glossary: Junk Donation in Houston

Junk Donationnoun – providing a contribution to a local charity in the form of a useable piece of furniture, appliance or household good to a worthy charitable organization.

Anytime you give to a charity makes you feel good. As they say, “Every little bit helps.” For charities, that is certainly true but it doesn’t always mean money. A charity can also benefit from your time and skills. Even if you just show up to help move office furniture or paint the building, they are getting work done and it’s not costing them anything. Instead, they can to focus on sharing the money they collect for those in need. Another benefit to a charity can come in the form of a junk donation. This is where a company like Junk King truly excels.

Since their inception back in 2005, Junk King has required all the franchises adopt their eco-friendly disposal policies. This includes recycling and junk donations. To accomplish this goal, the Junk King crews have all been trained in the proper handling of everything they collect. As they pick up an item, they decide if it is a junk donation, a recyclable or just straight up trash. Back at the depot, the crews will sort those items into piles for specific drop offs. Even though this sounds like a lot of extra work, Junk King is happy to provide this service.

Of course, you won’t have to take up any of your time for the sorting. That is handled automatically by Junk King. As for the cost, you won’t be paying for that either. Junk King has developed an affordable pricing policy that is based on volume and not weight. That includes all the “extras.” Once you agree to that free on site estimate, the work will start. You just have kick back and watch your unwanted junk fly out the door!

Make your junk count with a junk donation provided by Junk King.

Getting Ready For Your Houston Guests – Clear the Clutter

At certain points during the holiday season, most homes swell up with additional occupants. College students return home for a break and much needed laundry. If there is a new baby and grandparents from out of town you can set your clock by when they’ll show up for a visit. All of this means you need to have some sort of guest room ready. There are plenty of homes with a spare room that becomes the guest room. Maybe there is a futon or pull bed in there. Maybe it is already set up as full on guest room. In either case, for most of the year that room is left untouched aside from using it as a storage unit. Yes, with very little effort a cozy spare bedroom can quickly become overrun with unwanted junk. Before your guests show up, it might be time to clear the clutter and if there is one company who can help with that project it is Junk King.
