Dumpster Rentals vs. Junk Pick Up In Minneapolis

Clearing out the clutter from your home? Before you start to move those bulky pieces around, you need to decide how you’re going to get rid of all that excess rubbish. Two basic options are a dumpster rental or professional junk pick up. With either choice, you’re guaranteed to finally be rid of all that junk from your home. Deciding which is the best option might come down to a matter of labor.

A dumpster rental will provide you with a container big enough to hold whatever you’re throwing out. Of course, you’ll have to do the actual loading of your garbage. This means carrying every piece to the dumpster or hiring a work crew to do the hauling.

A professional junk pick up company like Junk King will provide you with a two-man crew who will do all the lifting and loading of your junk items. This includes carrying anything up from the basement or down in the attic. You merely have to tell the Junk King crew what you want removed and they’ll handle the rest.

If you rent a dumpster, you might need to keep that container on your property for a minimum of three days. Even if it only takes you one day to fill it up, that dumpster will still be there attracting all kinds of potential dumpster divers. With Junk King, all of your junk can be removed in a single junk pick up appointment. That appointment can also happen in the same day. Call in the morning and have your junk gone by the afternoon.

The typical dumpster rental comes with weight restrictions. This means you could be limited if you were tossing out heavier objects like chunks of concrete or demolition from a home remodel. There are no weight limits with Junk King. If it can fit on the back of the Junk King truck, it can be hauled away.

Often a dumpster rental will require additional permits from the city if that unit is going to be placed on the street. You don’t need a contractor to rent a dumpster but you could be fined if you don’t have the proper permits. There are no permits required for Junk King to remove your rubbish.

It’s clear when you weigh the pros and cons which direction you should go for your junk removal. Junk King provides the truck space and the workers needed to handle any type of junk pick up project.

Celebrate Earth Day In Minneapolis With Green Junk Removal

Are you ready to roll up your sleeves and help clean Minneapolis for Earth Day? Since 1995, the city has been celebrating Earth Day by focusing on the need for water quality improvement. This has been accomplished through a series of annual cleanup days. This year promises to be a spectacular event.

According to the official website: “The goal of the Earth Day Clean Up is to provide a volunteer experience and environmental education to Minneapolis residents and park users. This annual event involves cleaning Minneapolis parks, neighborhoods, watersheds and water bodies including: the Chain of Lakes, Lake Nokomis, Lake Hiawatha, Powderhorn Lake, Diamond Lake, Shingle Creek, Minnehaha Creek, Bassett’s Creek and the Mississippi River.” The clean up and conservation programs include such activities as river and stream water testing presentations, stream erosion/pollution presentations, recycled art programs for youth, birdhouse building, wildlife effects of pollution and water-cycle education games.

You can do your part by volunteering time at one of the many cleanup sites. When the fun of Earth Day is over, there is no reason why you have to stop you efforts of keeping Minneapolis green. Why not hire Junk King for an eco-friendly junk removal appointment? This would be where all of your junk is safely removed from your property and properly disposed of. By properly disposed off, Junk King means that your unwanted items could be recycled or donated.

If they are recycled, then they’ll be dropped off at one of the many certified facilities around the Minneapolis area. There could be one site for your old appliances and another for all your e-waste. Junk King won’t mind if they have to make several trips to clear out their truck. That is just how they roll.

Included in those trips could be a drop off at a local charity like the Salvation Army or Habitat for Humanity. There your old stuff can be given a fresh coat of paint, some new stuffing or rewiring and it can be ready for use once again. Won’t it feel great knowing your junk is being used all over again?

The effort you need to exert to accomplish all of this is making a single phone call to Junk King. When the crew arrives for the junk removal appointment, they are going to be doing all the work. You need only show them what you want removed and they’ll handle the rest. Help take care of the planet with green junk removal from Junk King.
