Remodeling Your Business? Find Out How Debris Removal from Junk King Can Help

Remodeling Your Business? Find Out How Debris Removal from Junk King Can Help

Sometimes a business needs a refresh or a full remodel to breathe some life back into it. Even large corporations with offices or stores across the country change things up every now and then. Remodeling your business can be a large task, though, even if you’re a small boutique or office. While you can put a new coat of paint on the walls and move some furniture around, that’s more of a refresh instead of a remodel. Remodels often involve removing flooring and walls, replacing displays and shelving, and much more, which is why debris removal is so important.

If you’re doing a refresh, you may not create a lot of trash. Doing a remodel, though, is probably going to leave you with a lot more debris than you expected. You’ve got to do something with all of this trash. One of the best solutions is to call Junk King Minneapolis. Our crew can quickly and easily haul away any garbage you have, including construction debris, old furniture, and old appliances. Whether you’re remodeling your own business or are in the business of doing remodels, Junk King is here for you.


Refresh or Remodel?

The first question to ask yourself is how much work do you want to do? Sometimes your answer is dictated by the condition of your office or workspace. If you’ve had water damage or are buying an older building to convert into your business space, you may not have a choice. Another reason to do a full remodel is if the space just isn’t working for you the way it is now. For example, if you have a small waiting room that is always crowded, it might be time to knock out a few walls and enlarge the space.

On the other hand, if the space is working for you but the place is starting to look a little dull, it might be time for a refresh. This does include painting, but it could also include new flooring, new furniture, and new lighting. A refresh is like a breath of fresh air, making your space look brand new without doing anything too involved.

Which option is right for you depends on what you need. If you do a refresh on a space that isn’t working for you, no amount of new paint will help improve how it functions. Of course, if you spend a lot of money to remodel a space that is working, you may be wasting money.

One way to help you determine if the space works is to poll your employees and even your customers. Find out what works and what doesn’t. Where do things seem to bottleneck? Are there spaces you rarely, if ever, use? Do you have some rooms devoted to storing junk? With that last one, Junk King can help you recover that space. Once we’ve cleaned out your trash, you might find that you actually have all the space you need.

Be Careful DIYing it

Another question business owners will need to decide is if they want to DIY some of these changes or if they want to call in a professional. DIY remodels can be tempting because people think they save money, but they often end up costing much more. Business owners who don’t know what they’re doing can cause a great amount of damage and have to spend a lot more just to rebuild their office.

If you’re doing anything with plumbing, electrical, or gas lines, you must hire a professional. If anything is done incorrectly, it can put everyone in and around your office in danger. Improper wiring could start an electrical fire, while a gas leak could cause the whole building to explode. Never attempt to DIY any of that. Another area where you should hire a professional is when you’re removing walls. You want to make certain the walls you want to take down are not load-bearing. If they are and you remove them, you may cause the entire roof to sag.


Either Way, You’re Going to Have Debris

Whether you do it yourself, hire a contractor, or are a construction crew, there’s going to be debris to get rid of. If you do a lot of work, you’ll typically have a lot of trash. Of course, sometimes the amount of work you do isn’t proportionate to the amount of trash created. If you decide to remove the carpet in your office and replace it with luxury vinyl planks, you could find that there are layers of flooring under the carpet. You may have to remove all of this old flooring. You may also find damaged subflooring that has to be removed and replaced. You never really know what a remodel is going to involve until you start opening walls and ripping up flooring.

As this debris builds up, you’re going to need someone to come haul it away. Junk King will take just about all types of construction debris except hazardous waste. This includes old cabinets, flooring, fixtures, and more. Most of this debris is created in the first few days of the project during demolition. You’ll end up with piles of debris, some of which may be in your way. Having us come in and clean it all out gives you a good starting place to rebuild.

While much of the trash may come from removing old stuff, you’re still going to create some additional garbage as you go. You’ll have the packaging your materials came in as well as the leftover materials from cutting pieces to fit. You may also create more demolition debris if you discover that you have to make additional changes or upgrades. This debris usually just piles up. That’s fine if you have a spot for it.


We Work with Businesses that Do Renovations

If you own a construction company, window installation crew, roofing business, or other company that’s in the construction industry, we’ll partner with you, too. Many companies that handle renovations for businesses subcontract Junk King to deal with all of the debris. We provide the same fast, reliable junk hauling services for these crews as we do for homeowners, landlords, and business owners. If you’d like to bring Junk King in as your debris hauling expert, please contact us today.

Even a Refresh Can Include Debris

If you decide to just do some cosmetic changes, you may not anticipate having a lot of trash. However, if you decide to replace any of your current furniture, you’re going to need to do something with the old stuff. This is another place where Junk King can help. We take office furniture of all types, including chairs, desks, filing cabinets, waiting room furniture, and much more. We’ll also haul away any old computer equipment you have, including printers and copy machines.

We know you may be hesitant to get rid of some of this furniture because it’s still in fairly good condition. You may be tempted to store it in a backroom or extra office, but you do need to ask yourself if that’s really the best use of the space. Will you ever use this furniture again? If not, why keep it? You could ask your employees if they want any of it. However, if you have a lot of old stuff, you may still end up with a lot of desks, chairs, and other things. You may consider selling some of it, too, but that’s not always quite as easy as it may seem.

Junk King will take all of this old office furniture, but we won’t go straight to the landfill with it. Instead, if it’s still in good condition, we’ll donate it to local charities. We’ve partnered with a number of different organizations in Minneapolis and the surrounding areas to help those in need. They will see to it that anything you have that’s still usable gets to people who can use it.


We Also Recycle

In addition to redirecting usable items away from the landfill, we also pass on anything that can be recycled to the appropriate recycling facility. Our goal is to redirect as much as possible from the landfill. In addition to donating and recycling, we also work closely with transfer stations that use junk as fuel to generate energy. At the end of the day, very little of what we actually pick up goes into the landfill.


Becoming a B2B Partner with Junk King

We work with many businesses in the Minneapolis area, and we would love to work with your company, too. Junk King partners with companies of all sizes, including small businesses and startups. You may only need us to come once a year during your annual cleanout, and that’s fine. On the other hand, if you’re a construction company and want to form a partnership, we’re happy to put you on our schedule. We will provide you with an estimate before every job that includes all fees and charges. We firmly believe in transparent pricing and will gladly answer any questions you might have.

Whether you need us regularly or just after a remodel, Junk King Minneapolis is here for you. Reach out today at 1-888-888-JUNK to discuss how we can help support your business.



Come Visit Junk King at the Maple Grove Home Show

Come Visit Junk King at the Maple Grove Home Show

Do you have plans for November 19th? If not, mark down the date! November 19, 2022, is the Maple Grove Home Show at the Maple Grove Community Center. The event is scheduled to open at ten am and run until four that afternoon. Junk King Minneapolis will have a booth, and we would love to meet you! We’re also hosting a raffle in which one lucky winner will receive a Full-Service Half Truck Junk Removal Service! This is a $498 value that you don’t want to miss!

This is a free event, and you don’t need to request tickets. Simply drop by the community center anytime between ten and four. Parking is free, too! In addition to Junk King, you’ll find a number of other companies in attendance. If you’ve never attended one of these events before, here’s a little bit about the Maple Grove Home Show and why you might enjoy attending this year.


What Does the Home Show Focus On?

The Maple Grove Home Show is all about your home. You’ll find companies that specialize in home remodeling, landscaping, windows, decking, and much more. Since we handle DIY construction debris removal, many people who are considering doing some renovations want to know more about how Junk King can help them. In total, the show has over 100 home improvement-related companies and experts that can help you with any renovation project.

There are three exhibition rooms you can make your way through the banquet hall, the commons area, and the downstairs exhibit hall. You’ll want to be sure to visit all three to meet all of the different exhibitors and collect information on how each can help you with various home renovation projects.

Free Seminars

Want to learn a little more about various remodeling projects? The Home Show has invited certain experts to give free seminars throughout the day. The schedule isn’t available yet, but you’ll certainly want to visit the Home Show’s website before the event to see the seminar topics before you attend. These seminars will focus on everything from remodeling a few rooms to creating a backyard oasis and other projects.


Get There Early!Get There Early!

If the seminars you want to attend aren’t until the afternoon, you may decide you don’t need to get to the show too early. There is a very good reason to come when the doors open, though: free goodie bags! The first 100 people will get these bags. They will include some promotional items from exhibitors, discount vouchers, and much more. You don’t want to miss out, plus getting there early will give you time to browse through all three exhibitor halls before you head to the seminars.


Win Prizes

You’ll also want to be sure to register for the $500 Home Depot shopping spree. You have to be present to register, and the winner will be announced before the show is over. Five hundred dollars would be a great addition to the budget of your next home remodel project.

You can also play Booth Bingo. Pick up your card when you arrive and have it stamped at various booths. Completed cards can be entered into a drawing to win a new Yeti cooler. Like the grab bags, there are only a limited number of bingo cards available, so be sure to get there early to get one.

In addition to these two large prizes, there are also many other smaller prizes that will be given away throughout the day, so be sure to sign up for those, too.

Who Should Attend?

If you’re interested in home remodel projects, the Maple Grove Home Show is the perfect place to learn more about DIY and professional renovations. Even if you’re not planning on doing a remodel anytime soon, if you think it’s something you might be interested in, come and learn a little more. In addition to our booth focusing on junk removal, you’ll find other exhibitors that are focused on specific areas. You don’t have to be interested in DIY remodels. You’ll find booths that focus on landscaping, renewable energy, financing, home accessories, and even related areas such as chiropractic services and wellness.

At the end of the day, the Home Show is free to attend, so even if you only have a couple hours free on November 19, you can drop by and pick up some information about the projects that you’re interested in. You don’t need any DIY experience or have any specific home project in mind. Exhibitors will be glad to talk to everyone from beginners to those who have successfully completed dozens of renovations.


We Hope to See You There!

Have questions about appliance removal, junk hauling, or hot tub removal services? Drop by the Maple Grove Home Show and visit the Junk King Minneapolis booth to talk to us! We’ll answer all of your questions share information about what we do. We’re looking forward to seeing you!


Junk King Minneapolis Real Estate Partnerships

Step Up Your Real Estate Game: Partner with Junk King Minneapolis!

If you’re a real estate agent in Minneapolis, you may be looking for ways to improve your overall sales and grow your business. Even if you’re working for an established office, you can still find new ways to bring in more clients or improve how quickly your homes sell once they hit the market. One way of boosting your turn-around rate is by reducing the time it takes to get a home listed. Many homes need small repairs or changes before they can be listed in order to get top dollar. Others may be full of junk and need to be fully cleaned out.

That’s where Junk King Minneapolis comes into play. While we don’t do renovations, our junk hauling services can help you get homes ready for updates so they can get listed faster. We work with several real estate professionals as well as house flippers in the Minneapolis area, and we’re ready to help you. Here are some of the ways working with Junk King can boost your real estate game.

 Ready To Book? Click & Save $20!

We Can Haul Away Unwanted Rubbish from Listings

Before you can list a home, it needs to be in great shape. The sellers may need to clean out their garage, get rid of some old furniture, or tear down a shed that’s about to collapse in the backyard. They need to get rid of these things now, so they may not have time to wait for the next bulk garbage pickup day. The city also only takes two large items each week, and there are some items they will not accept.

As a company that specializes in junk hauling in Minneapolis, however, we will haul away large amounts of garbage. Junk King’s large trucks can typically handle almost any job in a single load, and we take anything as long as it doesn’t contain hazardous waste. Your clients can tear down a deck, toss a large sectional sofa, and add in a broken chest freezer—we’ll haul away all of that and more. We can even take apart that old hot tub and get it off the back porch before you have the property professionally photographed.

Minneapolis real estate agents need to have homes ready for staging and photography quickly. The longer it takes to get these photos done, the more time your clients may struggle. Some may be paying for two homes, while others may be unable to get into a new home. They also have to pay for the utilities and other services at a home they may no longer be living in. Whether your clients need us to get rid of a few items or have an entire basement full of stuff to trash, Junk King will take care of it quickly and safely.

 Learn More About Items We Take

We Also Remove Construction and Renovation Debris

Preparing a home for sale often means putting in new flooring, making small repairs, and repainting. All of this creates debris that must go somewhere. Junk King of Minneapolis takes many types of DIY construction and renovation debris, though again, we don’t deal with anything hazardous. Whether your clients need to get rid of some old carpet or plan on doing a full kitchen remodel before listing the home, we’ll be here to haul off the debris.

We also rent dumpsters. Our MINI dumpster is designed to fit perfectly in a driveway while still holding more than four truckloads of debris. While our junk hauling services are often perfect for those cleaning out their home, renting a dumpster is more often the right solution for a renovation. If you have clients who want to do some renovations and repairs to their home that will create a lot of trash, they may want to consider the benefits of having a dumpster on-site. 

 Bigger Trucks

We Handle Foreclosures and Hoarder Homes, Too

Some real estate agents work for mortgage companies or other lenders that have had to foreclose on a home. When this occurs, you may be tasked with selling a property that’s full of stuff the previous owner didn’t take with them. You’ll need to clear the house out before you can get it listed. Junk King provides foreclosure clean out services to real estate agents, lenders, and anyone else who has inherited a home full of stuff they may want to get rid of. We’ll handle everything from moving the items out of the house to loading them into the truck. 

If you have a client who has inherited a home or has hoarding tendencies, we can help them, too. Our team is trained to know how to remove large, bulky, heavy furniture and appliances safely. Many people who try to move large chest freezers or sleeper sofas hurt themselves while doing so because they don’t have the right safety equipment. We have everything necessary to keep everyone safe during the process. During every removal, we will also be very careful of doorways, flooring, and everything else in the home. We’ll get the garbage out without doing any damage.


Preparing Rental Homes

Some real estate agents simply work with buyers and sellers. Others, however, also purchase a few properties here and there for themselves. They may flip these homes and sell them, or they may renovate them and use them as rental properties. There are a number of houses for rent in Minneapolis that are owned by real estate professionals. Having rental properties ensures that you have some form of steady income during those times the housing market isn’t doing as well as you’d like.

Renovating these properties can be a pain, however. You will need to have a trustworthy contractor to handle that task, plus you may need to hire someone to handle maintenance if you’re managing multiple properties. Junk King of Minneapolis can help you with property clean-out in between tenants. Renting one of our dumpsters may also be very helpful during renovation projects. Whatever you need, we’re here to help.

Junk King Real Estate Minneapolis

Flipping Homes

If you’ve seen any HGTV programs about house flipping, you may have a good idea of both the money you can make and the work such a project takes. Flipping isn’t as easy as some of these shows make it seem. You’re going to be making a lot of choices, even if you have a contractor handling most of the work. Flipping houses can be rewarding, but it’s going to be a lot of work.

Junk King will assist you with hauling away anything left in these properties. We’ll haul away any yard debris as well as the old flooring, cabinets, and other furnishings you need to get rid of. Again, renting one of our dumpsters may be the best way to go when flipping a home.


We Do Commercial Properties, Too

Many Realtors in Minneapolis, MN, list commercial properties. If you’re one of them, you can still partner with Junk King. We will assist you with cleaning out storefronts, stock rooms, or other spaces so you can get the property listed. Once a new owner is in the building, we can help them with regular cleaning or remodels.

Why Junk King?

Why do Minneapolis real estate professionals turn to Junk King? We’re known as one of the most trusted names in junk removal. Our team is made up of trained experts who will quickly and professionally load up any garbage you need to get rid of. Our estimates are always easy to read and fully transparent. We list every charge and fee, so neither you nor your clients will be hit with any surprises.

On top of that, we take great pride in the fact that we recycle a lot of what we get on our trucks. We bring items to a sorting facility and take out anything that can be recycled. Then, we take only the items leftover to the local transfer station to be burned for energy. This can keep the vast majority of each item from hitting landfills, reducing the footprint of any of these items.

Plus, we also rent dumpsters. We can help you determine the right option for your clients or your own project. If you’re flipping a home, a dumpster may be perfect. If your clients need to get rid of a few things before they move out of their home so you can list it, junk removal is likely better. Every situation is unique, though, so we’re more than happy to discuss your options since we can help with such a wide variety of tasks.

What Do We Haul Away?

We will haul away anything as long as it doesn’t contain hazardous chemicals. For that type of waste, we can often refer you to experts who know how to handle hazardous materials safely. Junk King, meanwhile, will haul away appliances, refrigerators, furniture, old hot tubs, televisions, electronic waste, yard waste, and much more. If it’s trash, we can get rid of it. If you’re preparing multiple houses for sale in Minneapolis, we know you don’t have time to wait on junk removal. We’ll get you scheduled as soon as possible. If you have us do an in-person estimate, we may even be able to do the work right away.

How Do We Take Care of a Bulk Trash Property Cleanout?

Over the years, things can really build up in a property, especially for people who might like to save items or for those self-named pack rats. We’ve all been there, and we know that sometimes you can use a little help. This is where Junk King steps in. 

Here are some of the things that we can take when we arrive to your property:

  • Junk that you no longer need
  • Large pieces of furniture like sofas, chairs, tables, and mattresses
  • Appliances that have stopped working
  • Hot tubs
  • Big screen televisions
  • Huge amounts of trash

Junk King’s bulk trash property cleanout service is a wonderful alternative to those who can’t wait around for the city to pick up their junk or for those who have more junk or large bulk items to carry out to the curb.

How Can Junk King Make Your Bulk Trash Property Cleanout Easier?

We are the number one junk removal company in the area, and with our team at your side, you have no worries in regard to your bulk trash. You will also be safer because it can be dangerous to try to move big items. Here are some of the things we can do to make your bulk trash property cleanout easier:


We Remove Large Appliances

If you get a new refrigerator, stove, or dishwasher, you need a place to put it, so you must remove the old one without cluttering up your garage. These items are difficult to move because they are large and bulky, and often quite heavy. Junk King can take the items with no problems. Our highly skilled team can handle the removal of any appliances, large or small. 


Mattresses and Box Springs are Removed with Ease

Another problem item that homeowners often have trouble removing from their homes are large mattresses and their counterparts, the box springs. Mattresses are a bit more flexible and easier to get out, but box springs, which are often made of solid wood, can be almost impossible to get out of your home unless you know how to maneuver it through the twists and turns that many houses have. It should also be noted that the older the mattress, the more weight it tends to carry. 

If you have recently gotten new furniture, or you simply want a change of scenery by removing your old furniture, Junk King can take out the old to make more room for the new. Trying to find friends or family to move a sofa or a chair can sometimes be difficult, but when you call Junk King, we can remove it in a matter of moments and you don’t ever have to lift a finger.


Electronics are One of Our Specialties

We can also easily remove any electronics you have laying around, including computers, which shouldn’t be disposed of in the trash and are not good for the environment. Junk King has your back, though, and we can take your electronic items away and dispose of them correctly, whether you have one or 100. We can also take almost any other electronic equipment you might have from old, bulky radios to huge speakers that no longer work.


Backyard Debris and Junk Can Be Quickly Removed

Do you have things piling up in the backyard? Are you the new owner of a property and dealing with junk that the previous owners left? We can help with this, too! Why should you have to stand out in the elements and remove all of this stuff when you can hire us to do it for you. We are experts at debris and junk removal, and we can dispose of it all for you with ease. 


Basement or Attic Full? Yes! We do That, Too!

Many people use their attics or basements for storage. It’s easy to allow things to collect in these areas, but when it comes to cleaning them out, this is where things get hairy. Taking junk up and down the stairs or ladder just isn’t easy or feasible for many people, but we know the ins and outs of junk removal, including from basements and attics. 


Commercial Cleanup and More!

If you are changing commercial spaces, or you have recently decided to get rid of a commercial space that you already have, you may have a lot of office equipment to get rid of. Our junk removal team can take away desks, filing cabinets, printers, cubicles, chairs, and much more. We can have your commercial space cleaned out and junk free in no time at all.

How to De-Stress and De-Clutter Using Professional Junk Removal Services

Is your home in serious need of decluttering? Clutter has a way of catching up to you, and sometimes you just need to hit the reset button. For many people, clutter can be an energy zapper. It leaves your house in disarray leading to stress and anxiety. In more serious situations, too much clutter can result in health complications, especially if mold and dust are present.

JK Minneapolis Spring Cleaning


Decluttering your home is actually a way to relieve stress and transform your home into the sanctuary you deserve. Even so, getting rid of the piles of unwanted items taking up valuable space in your home is no small feat. At Junk King, we know how overwhelming decluttering can get. We also know how much easier it gets when you have some professional help.

Let’s dive into the reasons why you might want to pick up the phone and dial up the professionals.

Decluttering With The Help of a Junk Removal Service

There are many reasons to declutter. You could be downsizing, having an estate sale, doing some spring cleaning, or dealing with a hoarding situation. Clutter overloads our senses, making it difficult to find peace in our homes. Not to mention, it’s pretty distracting, making it impossible to relax after a hard day’s work.

In these situations, the best option is to bring in the professionals. With a professional junk removal firm at your side, it’s easy to figure out what to keep and what to let go of. We’ll get rid of all the trash, so you can see the beauty of your home once again.

Our friendly and courteous team of trained professionals will get the junk out of your home so you can easily sort and arrange your items. It doesn’t matter what state your house, garage, or backyard is in. We’ve seen it all. We’ve done it all.

We’ll carry out the trash, debris, and junk items, load them onto our trucks for proper disposal. You don’t have to lift a finger. It’s our job to guarantee your peace of mind.

Advantages of Decluttering with Junk King

Perhaps the only downside of bringing in the junk removal pros is the cost. Most homeowners are hesitant about spending money on a job that they could do themselves with the help of a few friends and family.


Related: Why Junk King Minneapolis?


But, in our experience, people tend to underestimate the services provided by a junk removal company. Here’s why hiring Junk King to help declutter your home could end up being the best decision ever.

1. Helps save time

Sure, you could knock out the decluttering project in a few weekends. But the reason why clutter tends to accumulate is because of how overwhelming it can get. You leave some tasks for next week, and before you know it, your garage or attic is full to the brim again.

Think of all the time and energy you’ll save by enlisting the services of a professional junk removal firm. Another thing: Junk King professionals are trained to handle all kinds of dismantling, disassembly, and junk removal projects. This ensures that they can remove cumbersome items and large volumes of clutter quickly and safely.

We get the job done quickly and efficiently. Let us help you live a clutter-free life.

2. Reduces the risk of damage to your home

Large decluttering projects, such as hoarding or estate cleanouts, can take a toll on your emotional and physical wellbeing. They also pose a significant risk to your property. Getting large furniture and appliances out of the way or out of your home carries the risk of injury and property damage.

Junk King has decades of experience in the junk removal business. You can trust our professionals to safely haul junk from attics, basements, and even crawl spaces. And when it comes to maneuvering small spaces and narrow corridors? We’re the best in town.

3. Eco-friendly junk disposal

Finally, there’s the matter of where your junk, clutter, and debris end up. At Junk King, we’re driven by a commitment to leaving behind a better, cleaner, and healthier environment. We recycle up to 60% of the junk we collect, and we can help you donate your old items through our partnerships with local charities, second-hand centers, and non-profit organizations.

Garage Cleanout Before and After

Make the Time 

It is not easy to clean out a garage. It may take a very long time, and you might need all the assistance you can get. This is where Junk King comes into the picture. We dedicate the time to helping you with garage cleanouts. Choose a day and time and enlist the help of our friendly experts. We assist with dividing tasks and giving responsibilities to each member of the team. Hiring the garage cleanout professionals results in a more efficient and successful cleanout. In fact, we even sweep up for you!


Establish a Plan

You may come across a wide range of items while cleaning out your garage. Several items might be trash, while others may be something you want to save, repair, donate, or sell. Junk King professionals set aside bins or space to help you sort through what you find. If you come across goods you think might sell well in a garage sale, be sure to set up the time to have one.


Organize & Conquer 

Keeping your garage organized is the most effective method to keep it clean. Buy plastic containers with lids that fit on the shelving units in your garage. Consider getting a shelving unit for the garage walls if you do not already have any. It is a huge no-no in terms of organization to store stuff on the garage floor. You want to organize everything by category as you sort through your belongings.


The more stuff you can gather together, the easier you can see what you want to preserve, what you have doubles of, and what you do not need or want. Our experts can then sort these objects into keep, trash, sell, and donation categories.


Throw Away Any Trash

Get rid of any noticeable trash that may be sitting about. Toss it if you don’t utilize it or if it has no worth. Junk King services are just what you need for an effective garage cleanout, especially if you find that you have a lot of waste. 


Pro Tip: The easiest way to determine what should be discarded is to follow this rule: if you haven’t used it in the last 12 months, you almost certainly will not use it again.


Clean Your Garage

When it comes to basic cleaning, the garage is frequently the one room on your property that is overlooked. Do not forget to clean the garage when you are emptying it. Remove all heavy things from the floor so you can clean the filth that has accumulated where your unneeded objects and boxes previously resided. However, if you use Junk King Minneapolis for your garage cleanout, we can do it for you.

Five Odd Minneapolis Dumpster Rental FAQs

Minneapolis Dumpster RentalSome people, especially new homeowners and those who live in rented accommodation, have little experience in renting dumpsters to dispose of the waste generated from construction work and renovations. However, it’s highly likely that one day, you will have to learn more about Minneapolis dumpster rental. Even seasoned homeowners often don’t know the laws surrounding dumpsters, but a misunderstanding isn’t a good enough excuse to avoid penalties.

Fortunately, most reputable dumpster rental services, such as Junk King, can place mini dumpsters on your driveway without causing any damage. More importantly, you don’t have to worry about placement regulations and permits to situate a dumpster on your property. However, if you need to place a large receptacle on the road, don’t worry, because we’ve answered some of the most frequently asked (yet hard to find) questions below.

  1. Can I Use a Minneapolis Dumpster Rental for Asbestos Removal?

If you recently detected asbestos inside your home, you no doubt want to remove and eliminate it as fast as possible. It’s crucial to get rid of asbestos for the sake of your health, but you should never attempt to do so without professional help. First, only qualified asbestos removal service are legally allowed to remove the dangerous substance because they have the required training to dispose of it safely and responsibly. Second, it’s better to keep yourself out of harm’s way by letting the specialists do their job.

Because only certified companies can deal with asbestos removal, most waste disposal services can’t retrieve dumpsters containing asbestos. However, for the second reason detailed in the previous paragraph, you shouldn’t attempt to eliminate asbestos alone anyway. If you’re renovating a property that was built in the 60s or before, you might want to consider having an asbestos inspection before making any significant changes.

In a similar vein, you can’t throw household hazardous waste (HHW) into a dumpster. It’s prohibited to put any HHW in a landfill because it can be toxic to sanitation workers and react to form harmful chemicals. HHW includes paint, oil, varnish, medication, fuel, and more, and you can speak to the manufacturer to learn more about safe disposal.

  1. Can I Rent a Dumpster Without a Permit?

Whether you need a dumpster permit depends on where you wish to place it and for how long. A mini dumpster can usually hold up to 12 cubic yards of waste, and they fit comfortably on your driveway or elsewhere on your land. You don’t need a permit for a mini dumpster because it doesn’t affect anybody’s right of way on a public road. Plus, it’s your land, so you can decide how to utilize it. Bear in mind that you can’t extend your home or make structural changes without the relevant permit, but you won’t need permission to dispose of the waste in your mini dumpster.

Some construction projects, however, generate more junk than a mini dumpster can accommodate, which means you’ll probably either need a 20 or 30-yard dumpster. If there isn’t enough space for a large dumpster on your property, you should hire a licensed company to place one on the street directly in front of your accommodation. Fortunately, the service you choose is responsible for obtaining permits, though what they must pay may affect the total Minneapolis dumpster rental cost.

  1. What Happens to the Junk I throw Away?

Increasingly, people want to know what a dumpster rental service does with the waste it collects, probably because more people are becoming aware of the dangers of landfills and their effect on the environment. We throw more trash into landfills per capita than any other country, and landfills generate a significant amount of methane, a more potent greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide. In addition to air pollution, landfills can contaminate waterways, destroy habitats, and cause health inflictions in sanitation workers, which is why most dumpster rental services now take recycling seriously.

Take Junk King, for example, which aims to recycle at least 60 percent of the waste it collects (a target it often beats), and you can see how it can be more environmentally friendly to let the professionals dispose of trash rather than do it yourself. Of course, you don’t need help to recycle the small amount of junk you generate at home in a typical week, but a waste disposal service can be a real asset to the environment when you have piles of junk on your hands.

  1. Is There Anything More Affordable than Dumpster Rental?

In recent years, junk removal services have increased in popularity, and they offer an alternative to renting a Minneapolis dumpster. Instead of placing a dumpster on your driveway for a few days or a week, a waste retrieval company drives a truck, which can comfortably accommodate the waste from a small-scale renovation or spring clean, to your property. Then, in the space of a day or as little as a few hours, the junk removal service will load their vehicle with all the trash you want to throw away.

Reputable waste retrieval services put the same amount of care into recycling as the best dumpster rental companies, and they can be more affordable than dumpster rentals in certain situations. While you need to cover labor fees to have the professionals do the heavy lifting, you won’t need to worry about contributing to the permit fees that dumpster rental services have to pay. Plus, a junk removal company finishes the task in the space of a day rather than a week. If you have too much waste for their truck, have any odd-shaped possessions to dispose of, or need its drivers to travel far away, junk removal companies may be more expensive than dumpster rental. It’s best to do your homework to see which is cheapest for you.

  1. Why Rent a Dumpster When I Could Use a Junk Removal Company?

Now that we’ve mentioned some of the benefits of junk removal companies, you may wonder why it’s worth renting a dumpster for small waste loads, especially if it can be more expensive. While it’s true that junk removal companies have their benefits, they also have some downsides that you need to know. Of course, nothing in this world is without its pros and cons, but it’s best to be aware of them so that you can make educated decisions.

If you generate waste gradually while revamping your property, you’ll find having a dumpster that you can fill as and when you please will be more convenient than hiring a junk removal company. A junk removal company usually makes just one trip to collect your waste in its entirety, meaning you’ll have to find somewhere to store it until they arrive. Instead, however, you could just have a mini dumpster placed on your driveway for up to a week and let the professionals retrieve it when you’re finished.

Hopefully, this article has equipped you with the knowledge you need to press ahead with that revamp with an understanding of which waste disposal method is best for you. With a Minneapolis dumpster rental, you won’t need to contribute to permit fees or worry about breaking laws if placing it on your property, but permit fees will inevitably affect the overall price if you need to place a large dumpster on the street. However, you might not need a dumpster at all if you have lots of waste gathered in one place, so consider your options wisely to protect your investment.

How Junk King’s Dumpster Rental Services Contribute to a Greener Tomorrow

Dumpster RentalJunk King Minneapolis Uses New Mini Dumpster to Help Make Way for a Cleaner and Greener Tomorrow

The largest of the Twin Cities, Minneapolis, MN, located in Hennepin County, is a water rich city bisected by the Mississippi River. The territory that is now Minneapolis is thought to have first inhabited by the Dakota Indians before being settled by the French. The land then passed from the hands of the French, to the Spanish and then back to the French before it was eventually negotiated to the United States in the Louisiana Purchase in 1803.

Despite being known for its infamously frigid climate, Minneapolis actually has very warm summers. The park ridden city has over 160 parks and is a haven for outdoor cycling as the city has uniquely paved roads exclusive to cyclers and bike share program that is widely used among both residents and tourists.

According to The Star Tribune,  the Copenhagenize Design Co., a Danish design firm that annually publishes a worldwide index of bike-friendly cities, has ranked Minneapolis near the top of the list worldwide. The article states that “Minneapolis is No. 18 on the list, which is led by Copenhagen, Denmark, and two Dutch cities: Amsterdam and Utrecht. The only other North American city to make the top 20 is Montreal at No. 20.”

Minneapolis is also widely recognized as the backdrop to the 1970’s classic show, The Mary Tyler Moore Show and was once home to classic author F. Scott Fitzgerald and was home to music legend, Prince.

Employment and Education

Manufacturing industries make up most of the economic base in Minneapolis. Electronics, fod and dairy products, supercomputers, structural steel, thermostatic controls, farm machinery and so many other items make up a long list of goods produced in the largest of the Twin Cities.

Minneapolis is a well-educated city. In 2015 USA Today ranked Minneapolis in the number one spot as the Most Literate City according to its annual study. A low cost of living and high employment rate makes Minneapolis a great place to live and play.

According to Wikipedia, more than 40 percent of residents in Minneapolis make it a priority to volunteer time. This is the highest percentage of any metropolitan area in the United States.

Green Living in Minneapolis

Minneapolis’ green initiative focuses highly on reducing the amount of stormwater runoff that finds its way into the lakes, rivers, wetlands and creeks that surround the city. The initiative encourages residents to seek the use of green roofs, tree planting, rain gardens, rain barrels, and pervious pavements, most of which are geared towards keeping the natural waters clean.

Recycling in Minneapolis

The city’s curbside recycling program began as a monthly service in 1982 but as the years went on, recycling participation increased and the city was able to increase the frequency of pick-ups to twice per week. Recycling efforts in Minneapolis include the newly founded Organics recycling program. The program, which residents must sign up for, helps to make waste reduction simple. Once opted into the program, fruits, vegetables, bones, meat, breads, eggshells, non-recyclable and food-soiled paper, and more are collected for composting.

According to minneapolismn.gov, as of Monday May 15, 2017, 42%, of Minneapolis Solid Waste & Recycling customers (44,900 households) have signed up to participate.

How To Get The Most Out Of Your Storage Unit

A storage unit can come in handy when you are faced with a serious shortage of space in your own home. These are viable options for furniture, keepsakes, collections and inventory for a business. If you plan on renting a storage unit, then you want to get the most out of that space. Here’s how to make that happen:


Consider Location

If the things you’re putting in storage don’t matter to you, then in almost doesn’t matter where they end up. But if these are items that you are going to pull from throughout the year, then you definitely want to rent a unit that is close by your home. The facility should also be accommodating to your hours. A place that has access 24 hours obviously is the best for anyone’s schedule. However, you want to make sure that their security measures are as strong as possible. It would be easy to check their break-in record.

Consider the Environment

Your pick of storage unit could be greatly impacted by the environment. If this is a unit that is outside like a garage, then it might be susceptible to flooding. That’s not just from a heavy rainstorm but from melting snow. There are some storage units that are environmentally controlled. They are cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Because your storage units aren’t vacuum-sealed, pests and rodents might target your items. It’s not something you want to think about but you should definitely ask about pest control services.

Insure Your Belongings

Obviously, you don’t want anyone breaking into the storage facility to steal your stuff. But that’s not the only potential dangers you need to be aware of. There could be a fire or roof collapse. Some renter’s insurance or homeowner’s policies covers storage unit property. If not, then you might want to consider the type of insurance offered at the facility itself.

Organize What You Put In

You need to organize what you put into your storage unit so that you have easy access. If you can create rows of boxes, then that is the best approach. At the very least, you should number each box and have a corresponding inventory list. That will keep you from opening boxes looking for things that are important.

It is equally important not to pack clutter. You don’t want to pay for storage unit just to hold a lot of junk that you would throw out anyway. As you sort to the things you’re going to put in your storage unit you may want to bring in Junk King Minneapolis. These are the junk removal professionals who can help haul away all your unwanted rubbish. One session with Junk King Minneapolis is all it would take for you to get your storage unit organized.
