Schenectady, New York

“I think your service is great! Our home had just been listed on the MLS for sale and our first showing was the second day after our movers had moved all of our things out of the home. The day after the move, we were frantically cleaning and trying to decide what to do with “junk” that was left over from the move. We thought we’d save money and try to donate, or throw away what we could in our trash, or just ask neighbors if they wanted it. We had a lot of junk! So at the end of the day, while looking at all the junk no one wanted, and stuff we could NOT throw in the trash, I frantically called Junk King and explained my situation. I had ten showings the next day, the first one was scheduled for 8:45 (buyers showed up fifteen minutes early), and I needed their help asap! It worked out that Reggie and David with Junk King showed up at my door at 8AM the following morning! I prayed, I had fingers crossed, and I may have had a dream that they didn’t show up, but they did!”

Celebrate Earth Day In Hudson Valley With Green Junk Removal

Since the first Earth Day was held in American 1970, 175 countries have signed up to celebrate a day dedicated to improving the planet’s environment. Here in the US, there around 9,000 active curbside recycling programs and 38 states use wind turbines to create power. All of this matters because recycling one aluminum can saves 95% of the power it would take to make a new can. The more energy we save, the more sustainable we become and that’s good for everyone. Many cities are aiming for a “zero waste” goal in the coming years. This means that everything the city collects as trash will be recycled and reused. Food scraps will be turned into compost and everything else will be repurposed into raw materials that can be used again and again.

Most of that recycling work is done outside of your perspective. You can fill up your recycling bins but you don’t really follow those materials to the facility. Recycling paper, plastics, aluminum and cardboard is only the beginning. This Earth Day you can take your recycling up a notch by hiring Junk King for a green junk removal appointment.

Every Junk King junk removal appointment has the potential to be a zero waste project. That’s because Junk King will be dropping off your junk at area recycling centers. Yes, the big items like furniture and appliances can be disassembled and recycled if they are taken to the right facility. Another way for Junk King to recycle is to drop off your discarded stuff to a charity that specializes in fixing things up. That certainly counts as recycling.

What do you want to get rid of? With the help of the Junk King crew, you can have any bulk item take from your property. If there is something that needs to be broken down, then the Junk King crew will be able to accomplish that was well. They’ve taken apart hot tubs, fences, tool sheds and swing sets. Everything will go on the back of the Junk King truck that is big enough to handle whatever you want to throw out.

Before the junk removal work begins, you’ll need to agree to the estimate fee. You’ll be presented with a charge that is based on the amount of space your junk takes up on the back of the Junk King truck. There won’t be any surprise extras! Safe, dependable and green: That’s how Junk King handles junk removal.

Serious home gardeners are already plotting and planning what their spreads will look like this year. Perhaps you are ready to plant you first vegetable or herb garden. Despite what you might think, growing these types of plants is relatively easy. All you need are the seeds, good soil, water and sunlight.

Invest a little TLC and you’ll have an amazing garden growing in no time. If you need to clear space in your backyard, then Junk King is standing by to provide complete junk removal services.

The Junk King crew that comes along with every junk removal appointment will be doing the actual lifting and loading. If you’re getting rid of stones, chunks of concrete, dirt or sod from your backyard then you know how valuable that “muscle” will become.

If you need something taken apart then the Junk King crew will take care of that for you. Whether it’s a swing set, hot tub or pool table the JK team will have the right tools and the right knowhow to get the job done. While the Junk King crew is loading your junk onto the back of their truck, they’re going to be sorting what they collect. That’s because they’re not just going to dump everything into a landfill. Instead, they’re going to try and find a “new home” for your junk. That could be at a local recycling center or a charity. Either way, your junk can be repurposed and given a new lease on life. That means less garbage for Hudson Valley and a smaller carbon footprint for you. Start cleaning in your garden and finish in your home with a total junk removal project made possible by Junk King.

Jean Leon, of Junk King’s Hudson Valley, New York franchise, has a history of giving back to the community. Part of what attracted the New York native to the company is its green policies—we recycle or donate up to 60% of what we haul. He has two children and wants to leave a greener, cleaner world for them. In addition, Leon sometimes offers free services for those in need, and participates in community events to promote recycling. In business since April 2012, Leon feels fortunate to own his own franchise, and never shrinks from a tough job, whether it is managing his business, or getting out there and doing the physical work. His biggest job to date was cleaning out a Chrysler training center in the Hudson Valley. It taxed the crew to the max, but certainly, it took some business savvy to land the job in the first place. Making a success out of his business may be a full time job, but Leon still finds some time to pursue travel, basketball, and spending time with his family.
