Nashville Cardboard Junk Disposal & Recycling

In Nashville, state lawmakers recently sent a bill that authorizes the removal of the Occupy Nashville camp to Governor Bill Haslam for his signature. This would outlaw all unauthorized camping on public grounds. The key word there is “unauthorized.” No one wants to outlaw protests; it just makes practical sense that there be permits utilized by protesters that might infringe on common areas used by the general public.

If this bill makes it into law there’s going to be a major cleanup over at the War Memorial Plaza where the Occupy Nashville protesters have set up camp since October 2011. This cleanup effort will probably fall to the municipal workers who will rack up some serious overtime charges. This is the same type of cleanup that would happen after any major gathering of folks like a parade or Fourth of July celebration. No matter how conscientious people claim to be there is still a lot of garbage left behind.

In our own lives we tend to generate some serious piles of garbage especially after we’ve moved from one home to another. All of those cardboard boxes and wrapping materials you used for the move are now ready to be thrown out. But it might be hard to stuff that amount of garbage into one single trash can. This is why you could benefit from hiring professional junk haulers like Junk King Nashville when you’re garbage has grown to excess.

Maybe the city of Nashville will contract its own team of professional junk haulers to help with the cleanup of the park. You could benefit from this type of assistance by having an extra set of hands to remove the bulky items from your home you no longer want to keep.  Junk King’s pro hauling team will come to your house with an empty truck they will be eager to fill it up. You could use all those old cardboard boxes at the bottom of the truck and then pile on top the other things you want to get rid of.

All of that can be driven away in the back of the junk haulers’  truck. Getting rid of all that garbage is a way to reclaim valuable storage space in your home. There is nothing to protest about that!

Nashville Water Heater Disposal

As with every other local state government, Tennessee is getting into the energy efficient business by setting up projects that will be sponsored by the Clean Tennessee Energy Grant program. The funding from these projects comes from the April 2011 Clean Air Act Settlement with the Tennessee Valley Authority. As part of this settlement the state will receive over $26 million to fund clean air projects.
Among the list of projects are purchasing a fleet of electric vehicles for government business, adding reflective film to exterior windows at government offices to reduce escaping heat and installing a more energy-efficient heat recovery water heater system at some state park facilities. The goal with all of these programs is not only to have a positive impact on the environment but also provide inspiration to local residents to adopt their own eco-friendly upgrades around the home. One area that many homeowners are looking at is replacing their antiquated water heater systems.
There are many homes around Nashville that are brimming with charm and personality because they were built in a bygone age. Although these homes might look great that doesn’t mean they are always as energy-efficient as they could be. Swapping out an old water heater for a system that incorporates new technology such as solar energy is a way to help a homeowner greatly reduce their monthly energy bills. Homeowners might also find that switching over to a more energy-efficient type of water heater makes them eligible for all kinds of rebates and tax credits. Those bonuses won’t last forever which means making the switch is best accomplished as soon as possible.
Just because you might be swapping out your old water heater for solar panel powered water heater doesn’t mean you need to reconfigure your entire plumbing system. A solar power water heater will be just as contained as your current water heater. The only thing that is really changing is the method by which your hot water is created. A solar fueled water heater collects the sun’s energy and feed it into fuel cells which are then used to power up the water heater. If this is an external tank then those same power sources from the sun will heat the water automatically and keep it in storage until you need it.
Switching over to a solar fueled water heater will most likely require the services of someone who is experienced in adapting those kinds of systems into pre-existing homes. Just as you would hire a professional plumber to install a new water heater system you should also be looking towards a professional junk hauler like Junk King Nashville to get rid of that old water heater tank. You can easily call upon Junk King Nashville to set up an appointment for the removal of the water heater and any other item you want to get rid of. Because they are professional they know all about keeping to a schedule and making sure that your satisfaction is guaranteed. The quicker you install a new energy-efficient water heater the quicker you’ll be able to start saving on your energy bills.
