Enjoy Easy Home Improvement Cleanup With the Help of Junk Removal

Enjoy Easy Home Improvement Cleanup With the Help of Junk Removal Junk-King MarinHome improvement is the best way to make a house feel more like a real home for you; it is also a great way to upgrade the value of a house to sell it for a greater profit. Regardless of why you want to make some home improvements, one thing is for certain: you will end up with a lot of junk to clear out by the time you are finished. Getting rid of this junk on your own is a difficult undertaking. The best way to take care of this big problem is by hiring the help of a professional junk removal service.

Why should I hire a professional junk removal service?

While it is “technically” possible to do junk removal on your own, you never should. Here are the reasons why:

You don’t have to find a place to keep the junk out of the way

As junk accumulates throughout the course of your home improvement project, you will have to find a way to keep it out of the way. First, you will simply shuffle it around so that it doesn’t interfere with your home improvement endeavors; then, you will have to move it somewhere as a part of the cleanup process. Even after this, however, the junk will your problem to deal with; storing it is a waste of money and keeping garish junk in and around your house defeats the purpose of your home improvement project (it is also safety hazard, since the sight of random junk can attract curious thieves).

Trying to manage junk removal on your own can cause a lot of problems,

The city won’t take your junk like they take your trash

Junk removal isn’t as simple as throwing out the trash. Unlike basic waste disposal, your city’s local sanitation workers won’t come and pick it up — in fact, you may be fined after putting large pieces of junk on the curb.

You have to transport the junk yourself

If you are handling junk removal yourself, that is exactly what you are doing: handling it yourself. This means that you have to first locate someone who will even take your junk in the first place, and this is the easy part. Next, you need to procure transportation for your junk removal — even if you have a pickup truck on hand, this is a problem when you have large pieces of junk. Finally, you have to load the junk up and transport it yourself; this can be dangerous, as lifting heavy objects yourself can lead to injury. Even hiring professional movers for this task is a bad idea, because they will charge you exorbitant fees for something that shouldn’t be all that expensive. The safest, most cost-effective, most efficient junk removal option is to hire the services of a junk removal pro.

You could end up making a mistake

Hauling your junk off to the wrong place can cause big problems for you. This is because there’s no way that you can be certain about whether or not your junk will actually be accepted; if it isn’t, then you will waste a trip.

Don’t waste your time trying to figure out what to do with your post-removal junk — just hire a pro

You started your home improvement project so that you could enjoy — or profit from — an upgraded home, not so that you could figure out how to get rid of a huge pile of worthless junk. Make sure that you minimize your costs, protect your safety and ultimately get rid of your junk, hire the services of a junk removal pro.

 

How to Recycle a Computer and Other E-Waste

How to Recycle a Computer and Other E-Waste Junk-King MarinThe phrase, “please recycle,” has been taken very seriously here at Junk-King over the last decade, as we’ve been able to provide both businesses and residences with a number of ways to contribute to the collective environmental cause. Aside from hauling literally tons of unwanted household items away and putting them to good use elsewhere, many of our customers are still inquiring about how to properly dispose of or recycle their old computers and a number of other electronic devices as well.  Also known as E-waste, this category also includes printers/copiers, keyboards, fax machines, TVs, CGA and monochrome monitors, cell phones, stereos, and the list continues; in fact, most anything containing circuitry, heavy metals and hard plastics together can either be refurbished or broken down into parts and recycled.

Reasons to Recycle E-Waste

One of the main reasons why we recycle and/or refurbish any of the above items can be attributed to the toxicity factor. Many of these items contain copper, lead, mercury, and other potentially harmful components, which have proven to cause a number of health-related issues if not handled in a safe manner. We can no longer risk throwing these items in the garbage and having them hauled off and buried in landfills. Over time, these elements can contaminate the soil, which can lead to some serious problems down the road. During heavier rain periods, discarded contaminants can eventually reach the surface and turn into toxic water runoff. With our current water supply diminishing as each day passes, the last thing we need is another environmental problem to deal with. This is one of the reasons why we urge everyone to recycle their digital devices.

How to Recycle E-Waste the Easy Way

Junk-King specializes in doing the hard work for you when it comes to safely removing unwanted E-waste from your business or your home. You can do it yourself if you can possibly manage the time, or you can save yourself some time, trouble and money by allowing us to do what we do best. Junk-King has been working with a variety of charitable organizations for years, and we’re very much in tune with the process. To recycle your electronic items is a great way to keep things green, yet donating your used wares can serve those in your community and beyond with the tools they need to succeed. No matter the case, many people will benefit from either of these services we provide. It’s also important to point out that many of these items can be used as tax deductions when going through the proper channels. While saving money seems to be on most everyone’s mind, you can book an appointment online and save yourself an extra $30.00 or simply give us a call and we’ll take care of the details.

Whether you own a business, a home, or both, Junk-King also takes pride in the promise that no job is too big or too small, unless you’re only looking for a place to dispose of your old cell phone; we’ll let you recycle that one on your own.

How Often Should You Recycle?

How will you know when it’s time to recycle? Most businesses will have their E-waste items picked up every six months or so, while homeowners often do this as an annual housecleaning sort of thing. You may also want to keep in mind that Junk-King has no problem with mixed loads of disposables. From electronics to fridges to mattresses, we’ll haul it all in one fell swoop. Problem solved!

Furniture Removal – Ways to Deal With Large Trash

Furniture Removal - Ways to Deal With Large Trash Junk King MarinWhether you’re downsizing, moving long distance, or combining households, if you have furniture you aren’t using anymore, figuring out how to get rid of it can be daunting. That doesn’t have to be the case. With the right information, getting unwanted furniture out of your way and out of your life.

Dos and Don’ts When it Comes to Furniture Removal:

Do: Donate Furniture in Good Condition

As the old saying goes, the poor are always with us. Many people who have lost homes to disasters, are fleeing abusive relationships, or are in otherwise difficult situations don’t have the financial resources to invest in even basic furnishings. Your old, unwanted (but still in good condition) items can help them achieve a decent quality of life. Donating to a charity or charity-run thrift store can also get you a donation credit, which can save you money on your taxes.

Do: Check if Your Community Has Large-Waste Pickup

Many municipalities have large-waste pickup days, which allow you a convenient way to dispose of unwanted large furniture. This may be the best option if you only have a few pieces to dispose of. However, there are some drawbacks. Community waste disposal may charge more than you want to pay for furniture removal, or may make a mess while loading your unwanted items into a standard garbage pickup truck (as large items can sometimes knock smaller pieces of trash out of the truck).

Do: Follow Hazardous Waste Disposal Rules

Though most furniture removal poses no threat to human health or the environment, some items may require special precautions. The chemical refrigerants contained inside most consumer-grade refrigerator coils, for example, are toxic and can easily contaminate the water table. California has some of the strictest health and environmental regulations in the country; disposes of hazardous waste in an improper manner can mean significant fines and even jail time. Save yourself and the planet some stress and follow the rules.

Don’t: Just Dump Your Stuff On the Curb or In a Dumpster

Most communities, including those in Marin County, have laws regarding proper furniture removal, and most private companies that serve the dumpsters at apartment complexes and public facilities have rules regarding dumping. Don’t be tempted to try DIY furniture removal using your curb or someone else’s dumpster. To do so may well be illegal and can cost you far more in fines than paying for proper, professional furniture removal would cost you.

Don’t: Donate Items From Smoking Homes

Many people searching for deals on furniture have health problems, including asthma and allergies. Even being around items removed from homes where people smoke can cause a reaction. You don’t want to be responsible for putting someone else’s health at risk. Also be aware that pets often have issues being around items that smell of cigarette smoke; dogs and cats have very sensitive noses, use scents to make sense of their world, and can suffer stress or health problems if exposed to persistent odors they aren’t familiar with or simply don’t like.

Don’t: Harm Yourself Lifting Your Furniture

Finally, don’t do DIY furniture removal if you have any back, leg, or other health problems that affect your ability to lift. Lifting heavy furniture can exacerbate (or sometimes even cause) serious back problems like slipped disks. Given how much health care costs in the current economy, DIY furniture removal isn’t worth it. What you save on a furniture removal service you’ll end up spending at the doctor.

Junk Removal For Garage Sales

Junk Removal For Garage Sales Junk King MarinHolding a garage sale is a great way to get rid of most your useless junk, and walk away with a wad of cash in the process. What’s more, a running a garage sale is super easy — all you need to do is put together a couple of cheap cardboard signs and scatter all of your junk all around the front yard. Then, you can just sit back, relax and wait until a passerby to ask you about that old table that has been sitting in the basement for the past three or four years.

All of that is pretty awesome, but if you’re like most people, you have probably hoarded away enough stuff to decorate almost an entire house, so you probably won’t sell every last piece of junk that you lay out on your front yard. So what do you do with everything after your garage sale is officially over? The answer to this question is simple: hire a professional junk removal service. Here is why you should go with a pro for your post-garage sale junk removal:

With junk removal, you don’t have to keep your junk

You’re hosting a garage sale to get rid of your junk, and you shouldn’t be forced to toss whatever is left over back into your garage, attic or basement. Junk removal service ensures that this won’t happen, because your leftover junk will end up somewhere else.

You don’t have to worry about any curious thieves wandering onto your property

Even junk can be tempting for a thief. If yours sits out, then a thief could invade your property, creating a dangerous situation, so junk removal is a must to avoid this problem.

Why you shouldn’t handle your junk removal yourself

You don’t have as big of a clean up job after your garage sale is over

It may have been easy to scatter all of your junk around the yard, but cleaning it up won;t be so easy — unless you decide to work with a professional junk removal service. They will do most of the cleanup work for you.

You don’t have to figure out where all of your junk is supposed to go

If you decide to get rid of your extra junk, you have to figure out where you can legally dump it. For this, different materials have different rules, so you will have to call all around town to see if there is even anywhere that will accept your junk at all.. A pro junk removal service makes this a non-factor, because they already know where to take everything.

You don’t have to throw your back out trying to lift your heavier junk

Furniture, older TVs and other types of weighty junk is difficult to carry. Not only is it heavy, but it is awkwardly built, so trying to move it around can be dangerous. While trying to move heavy stuff around, you can drop something on your foot, pull a muscle, hurt your shoulders or throw out your back. Junk removal pros can take this out of the equation as well.

You don’t have to spend all day trying to get all of your junk across town

Even after you’ve figured out where to put it and loaded it up, you still have to get your old stuff there — if a pro junk removal service isn’t doing the grunt work for you.

Dump your extra junk after you’ve sold the good stuff

Make your useless junk a non-factor by hiring a professional junk removal service. To learn more, contact Junk King, America’s Greenest junk removal service.
