For folks along the Missouri River, the summer of 2011 might surely be remembered as the summer of the great flood. A perfect storm of events such as huge rainfall and snow in the winter has swelled the northern reserves as far away as Canada. That water has to go somewhere. Sadly, that means flowing south and major flooding everywhere along the route. Kansas City is bracing for its own potential flooding. Businesses and homeowners are encouraged to have an evacuation plan in place. The last thing you want to do is get caught up short if the call comes to get out of town.
“Businesses along the Missouri River in Kansas City are better defended by higher levees,” said Sara Croke, president of Weather or Not Inc. in Shawnee in an interview for the Kansas City Journal. “Their threat is not imminent, but as we get into July, they need to take a careful watch over what goes on upstream.”
As with every major city along the Missouri River, Kansas City has a levee system that has a 9 foot clearance if the predictions of 39 feet of rising water levels stays on track. However, if there is one thing the summer of floods have taught us is that nothing is predictable. The best that the folks of Kansas City can do is prepare for the worst and pray for the best.
One helpful approach would be to get your own house in order by getting rid of all your unwanted junk. Having this trash removed once and for all also will remove the danger of it getting swept away in another storm. Take a gander out your kitchen window into your backyard. Is there anything back there that should be taken away like piles of scrap wood, pieces of an abandoned auto repair project or even some dead shrubbery? What about the inside of your home? Is your basement full of boxes or other items that could be tossed out? If you want to take care of this large trash pickup up business all you need to do is hire a team of experiences junk haulers like Junk King Kansas City,
A professional junk hauling crew can show up on the scheduled day with enough manpower and truck space to take away even the biggest pieces of junk you might have around your home. Is it time to get rid of the piano nobody plays? Want to toss out that broken furniture? Need to get rid of the old washing machine? These are exactly the kind of big items that you can’t simply put on your curb and hope they’ll be taken away. They won’t and you could get fined for illegal dumping.
Even if you just have one big item, it’s still worth to call up a professional team of haulers. You could add onto the pile some smaller boxes or bags of trash to make the most of the pickup. The goal is to get rid of that trash you’re holding onto because you can’t toss it out. Why hold onto that if you don’t have to?
