Start Digging Out Of Your Boston Home – Get Rid Of That Winter Junk

At long last, Bostonians can see the light at the end of the tunnel. That would be the “light” of spring. The temperatures are ever so slowing climbing up and whatever snow is left around is melting fast. This means you can “dig” out of your home literally and figuratively. Are you ready to get rid of that winter junk? Then Junk King will be ready for you.

Hauling

The winter junk isn’t necessarily the stuff you’ve collected in the last couple of months. Instead, think of it as all the stuff you were staring at while trapped inside your home. This could be the sofa that you’re tired of sitting on or the mattress that isn’t giving you a good night’s sleep. Your winter junk can also include all the clothes in your closet that no long fit. Sounds like a growing list of stuff you can turn over to Junk King!

Between the time you call Junk King to set up your appointment and the arrival of the crew, that list could actually grow. That won’t be a problem because the final fee for your job can’t be put together until the Junk King crew has had a chance to see the junk firsthand. Yes, you can generate an estimate of the cost using Junk King’s website price calculator. However, the crew needs to see for themselves just how much space your junk will need on the back of the truck. Once they make that estimate you’ll be presented with a final price that will include everything. This is a price that is not going to change when the job is done. In fact, if your junk takes up more space you’ll still pay the original fee.

Included in that rate will be all the extra drop offs that Junk King might make to dispose of your stuff. They aren’t just going make a dash to the dump. Instead, Junk King is going to make every effort to see that the bulk of what they remove from your property is either recycled or donated. That is how they are going to help keep Boston green. Hiring Junk King is a perfect way to jumpstart your spring-cleaning and get rid of that winter junk.

Get Green For St. Patrick’s Day in Boston – Recycle Junk!

St. Patrick’s Day is one of those holidays where we all get to share regardless of your heritage. Yes, for one day, we’re all Irish. It also means we’re all green. You’ll find wearing a green shirt, tie or socks hold extra significance on this day. Of course, “going green” has taken on an extra meaning. Beyond St. Patrick’s Day, you can be green all year long, if you keep up with your recycling. After you’ve gone to the parade and had some corn beef, think about what you can do to stay green, namely how you can recycle junk. The perfect partner for that project would be Junk King.

Junk King has been a green company since they first started collecting junk back in 2005. As a national company, they get to decide the policy for all their branches to follow. That includes a robust approach to recycling. All the Junk King crewmembers are trained to keep an eye out for an item that can be recycled or donated. Obviously, things like old computers, printers, fax machines, copies and DVD players would be considered e-waste. They all have to be recycled. That means dropping them off at a certified center. However, the recycling doesn’t have to stop there. Items like furniture, mattresses, box springs, appliances and even clothes can be recycled.

Just because something is getting recycled doesn’t mean it will automatically be ground up into pulp. Any time you can put something back into circulation, that is considered recycled. That means a donation to a local charity is a perfect way to recycle. Once again, Junk King will lead the way by making sure those types of “recyclables” find their way to the right organization.

If all of this sounds like a lot of drop offs, it is. However, you’re not going to be charged any extra for going green. Instead, you’ll be paying a flat fee strictly based on volume. That is based on an estimate of how much space your junk will take up on the back of the truck whether it is 100% rubbish or 100% recyclable. That is also a price that is not going to suddenly change when the job is done and it’s time to pay the bill. You can trust Junk King to recycle junk the right way.
