Alternative to Minneapolis Dumpster Rentals

There is not a real threat with roaming bears while living in the heart of Minneapolis. The further you go away from the city and into the surrounding woods the greater the chance you’ll have of running into a grizzly or two. That doesn’t mean that Minneapolis is a complete critter free zone. In fact, there are many roaming nocturnal creatures that are always on the prowl for their next meal. This is something to think about when you are considering rental a dumpster to put on your property: What are you going to attract with that dumpster?

City dwelling animals like raccoons, feral cats, possums and the occasional rat have all become rather sophisticated when it comes to sniffing out snacks. Even if the dumpster you’re renting is for construction waste there is no telling what kind of garbage was dumped in that unit before you got it. You might not smell anything but those animals who survive on their sense of smell can pick up a past scent and start poking around. Once they’ve stopped by for your dumpster they might start coming back around for the rest of your garbage. How often do you return to your favorite restaurant? Those animals are no different and they’re eating for free!

There is also the potential for other forms of interlopers when it comes to dumpster rentals on your property. These would be the two-legged variety. Dumpster divers are either putting stuff in or taking stuff out. Those putting stuff in your dumpster would be all your lovely neighbors who think that an empty dumpster is free license to toss out their trash. Now you’re really increasing your chances of getting food mixed in with your trash! For those who are taking stuff out, a dumpster is too tempting a target for recyclables or even something they think they can use. So, what is the alternative? Simple: Don’t rent a dumpster. Instead call Junk King Minneapolis.

Minneapolis Dirt Removal and Hauling

The Northeast Minneapolis Chamber of Commerce recently held a clean-up project called “Weed It & Reap.” Local volunteers showed up to help pick up debris on sidewalks, boulevards and neighborhood streets. The Chamber supplied the vests, gloves and garbage bags and the volunteers supplied the “muscle.” They were rewarded for their efforts with a lunch and T-shirt. Plus they had the added bonus of being able to marvel at all the clean streets left behind in their wake.

Around our own homes, most of us make a strong effort to keep things clean on the outside even if there is clutter on the inside. Too often, some of that clutter can spill over in the form of items left on porches such as furniture or appliances. The side of a house or the back of a garage is another potential dumping zone where scraps of lumber and other waste can end up. It’s not because we’re too lazy to throw this stuff out but because it’s too big to fit into a weekly garbage pickup. What’s the solution? That would be Junk King Minneapolis.

Ever since they set up their business in Minneapolis, Junk King has been helping residents clear out the clutter in their garages, basements, attics and closets. But they’ve also been pitching in with dirt removal and hauling. If there is anything in your yard you want taken away, Junk King is up to the task.

With winter just around the corner this is a perfect time to get the yard ready. You might want to trim back those trees to prevent ice from snapping off the branches. One crash on your roof is all it could take to ruin the holiday. Junk King can also cart off any rusty patio furniture, busted planters, kids swing sets or even an old hot tub or pool.
