Declutter to Start Your Retirement in Houston, TX

How long have you been planning for your retirement? For most of us, that planning actually starts around the time you begin working. Many companies offer retirement investment plans. That puts every worker in a retirement frame of mind early on. Now that you’ve crossed the line and are no longer working, you’ve got some decisions to make. Will you stay in your current living condition or move to warmer climate? Will you do all the things you have on your bucket list? One of the first items you should tick off is taking care of the household chores. That is where a company like Junk King can be a huge benefit. If you need to get serious about a home declutter project, then Junk King is the call to make.

There are probably several areas in your home that could be considered “storage zones.” Top of the list would be the basement, garage, attic and closets.

With Junk King on the job, your home can literally be transformed in a matter of minutes.

You home declutter chore just got a whole lot simpler thanks to Junk King being on the job.

Hit Zero Waste with Junk King Houston

Austin has one. So does Dallas and San Antonio. Now efforts are underway to provide Houston with a comprehensive zero-waste policy. According to the organization spearheading this effort, zero waste is defined as, “A goal that is ethical, economical, efficient and visionary, to guide people in hanging their lifestyles and practices to emulate sustainable life cycles, where all discarded materials are designed to become resources for others to use.”

This organization believes the most effective way to achieve that goal is to eliminate the “one bin for all” type of trash disposal and instead provide distinct recycling bins for different products. That way they can be better sorted and repurposed. The city council is taking up this measure for the upcoming budget discussions. How close would you be to zero waste around your home?

One company who is helping many Houston residents get to that zero waste goal is Junk King. They have an aggressive recycling program that has been in effect ever since they began operations nearly ten years ago. The Junk King crews who will be picking upĀ  your unwanted stuff have all been trained to spot those items that can be recycled. This could be anything from a sofa to a pile of dirt. Junk King has established working partnerships with many recycling facilities around town. They know exactly what these centers are looking for.

In addition, Junk King is also in close contact with several charities. There is something that is collected which could refurbished or reused by a charity, then Junk King will make sure that item finds its way to that organization.

How does all of Junk King’s eco-friendly disposal policies impact you? First, you get to have your carbon footprint reduced without lifting a finger. Beyond that, everything happens long after the crew has left your home. All that time devoted to extra drop offs is on Junk King. Best of all you won’t be paying any extra charges for the service.
