When kids are young, it falls to the parents to “help” out on the appropriate holidays. The dads are in charge on Mother’s Day to make sure breakfast in bed is served and flowers are in the vase. On Father’s Day, it is mom’s turn to coordinate with the kids to find a way to honor dad. This year, you might want to try something special. If you’re in charge of the Father’s Day gifts, then why not set up a junk removal session with Junk King Columbus.
A junk removal session might not sound like a fun gift on the surface but consider the result. By letting Junk King come into your home to take away all you unwanted rubbish you are actually freeing dad up from a chore that has been on his “to do” list. It might have even been on that list for some time. Just because he can’t move something out of the house doesn’t mean he doesn’t want to. Some of those removal jobs require extra help and a truck. That’s a lot to coordinate. But with Junk King, the only coordination is making a phone call.
When you set up your appointment with Junk King, you’ll first be asked what date works best for your schedule. Junk King doesn’t want to keep you waiting. That’s why they also occasionally offer same day pick-ups. Next, you’ll be asked what you’re getting rid of. You don’t have to provide an itemized list as much as give a sense of how big a job this is. If you’re getting rid of some furniture and a few other boxes, then the standard two-man crew can definitely handle that. On the other hand, if you need help with a hoarder level cleanup, then you’re going to need more crew and more trucks. Junk King can provide those. A recent gig took six movers and three trucks to complete.
When the crew shows up, you’ll show them all the things you want to get rid of and they’ll provide you with an estimate. That will be based on how much space your stuff will fill on the back of the truck. One fee covers all the work.
This Father’s Day, you can make dad very happy by having Junk King take away all the rubbish in the house. Big relief.

Winter wasn’t going to say good-bye to Ohio without one final storm. A major weather front swept through at the beginning of March that caused flooding over in Delaware County. This flooded forced the closure of some roads for up to ten days. Ironically, this stretch of State Route 229 is expected to flood during heavy rainstorms. It was designed that way. It’s part of the wildlife area on the northern part of Delaware Lake. Still, it’s never fun to be diverted. This is a reminder that Mother Nature will always have the last word.

Do you think your garden would ever be magazine cover worthy? There have been plenty of amateur gardens that have graced the cover of magazines and they’re usually created by homeowners with a green thumb as opposed to professional landscapers. It is time to get your garden ready for growing. Here’s what you’ll need to focus on in the coming weeks.
Sharp, well-defined bed edges elevate any garden. A deep trench between your lawn and flower beds is a good way to go. Not only will it enhance the overall feel of your garden but it’s great to watering, too. You could skip the edging all together if all your flowers and veggies are confined to wooden beds. Short of that, start cleaning up those edges.
Roses are always a welcome addition to any garden. They can become the main flower or just an accent. No matter how many rose buses you have, now is the time you will want to prune those bushes before new shoots are more than 1/2-inch long. Pruning gives a plant some much-needed “breathing room.”
Weeding is one of those garden tasks that never seem to end. You might be able to mitigate your weed problem this year by pulling up as many of the winter weeds as you can get your hands on. Use a pre-emergent herbicide containing corn gluten to disrupt weed seed germination for up to three months.
Stakes help tall plants flourish. They’re also a big benefit to certain vegetables like tomatoes and beans. It’s a good idea to get those stakes in the grown before the growth is too small. You could even stake before any seedlings go in. This can help you map out you entire garden plan.
If you’re already seeing some new growth, then fertilizer you put down now should be low numbers. You don’t want to overwhelm the plants with a blast of fertilizer. However, if the soil is clean and you’re just prepping, then you can go for more nutrient fertilizer to mix throughout your soil. Just give it a few weeks to sink in.
As you clean, prune and trim you’re going to create a lot of yard waste to throw out. That might fill up your trashcan but what about the other things you want to get rid of? What if you need to toss out a lawnmower or crusty grill? That is when Junk King Columbus can be a big help. The two-man moving crew assigned to your session can do some awesome debris clearing around every corner of your yard. Get your garden ready for growing with a little yard waste removal help from Junk King Columbus.
Recently, ODOT hosted a Central Ohio Litter Summit with community leaders to address the growing problem of trash along Ohio’s highways. You’ve probably noticed a lot of trash out on the roads. It is a problem that ODOT says is out of control. “It keeps coming back. It’s back the next week as soon as we pick it up,” ODOT rep Joel Hunt told a local news station.
Where is the trash coming from? Sadly, a lot of sources. Specifically, people driving with uncovered loads, people not using garbage bags in their cans and drivers simply throwing trash out the window. Sherri Palmer, who works with Keep Columbus Beautiful says, “We can’t keep up. We can’t continue to pay people to clean up. Everyone has to take responsibility.”
This is not just a problem of how it looks but also of what it costs. According to ODOT, they spend up to $4 million a year picking up trash. That is $4 million that could have gone for more snow plows or paving roads in Bexley. In addition to those costs, the trash is also clogging drains. That in turn can lead to unnecessary flooding. What kind of impression does all that garbage make on visitors? You can only imagine that anyone coming to Bexley or Columbus and seeing that trash aren’t going to want to invest here.
ODOT is putting together a list of trash hot spots. Once targeted, those areas can be bolstered with more garbage cans and focused cleaning. The common wisdom is that if an area looks clean, people are less likely to litter there.
How can you help? Don’t abandon any furniture or appliance on the curb. The hope is someone will happen along to pick it up but that rarely happens and it causes further work for the city. Instead, bring in Junk King Columbus. They’ll be able to haul away any amount of rubbish you want to get rid of regardless of size or weight. Even if all your rubbish is out of sight in a garage or basement, you should still consider getting rid of it the right way. The best approach to any kid of junk removal in Bexley is to put Junk King Columbus on the task.
The initial investment you make in your home is the money you put down for the closing costs. Every time you make another payment on the mortgage, you are making another investment. All those repairs you make, no matter how small, can also be considered an investment. That is the baseline of investments but a home rarely stays in the same condition as when you moved in. There is always room for improvement. Here are some home improvements that provide the best ROI.
Creating An Additional Room
Is every space in your home being utilized? An unfinished basement or attic could become an additional bedroom. What makes a bedroom functional is having a closet. That would be easy to create in either one of those spaces. A detached garage could become an additional room as well that works as a guest bedroom or office. With those types of improvements, you will instantly be able to change the listing of your home, which in turn can increase the value.
Open Floor Plan
One of the most attractive features for a homebuyer is an open floor plan. You’ll find that nearly every new home built today utilizes this design element. How can you make that happen in your home? Check the wall that closes off the kitchen from the rest of the house. If it isn’t a load-bearing wall, then consider knocking it down to open up that space. Now you can connect a dining room to the kitchen or extend a family room.
If all you have leading down to the backyard are some steps, then you might want to focus on a patio upgrade. You can create an attractive space with concrete tiles or a wood deck. Add planters, comfy patio furniture, a dining area and a nice grill and you’ve created an extension of your living space.
Every home improvement project you undertake should begin with a call to Junk King Columbus. This isn’t a construction company but a professional junk hauling service. Junk King will provide you with movers and a truck that will allow you to clear out rubbish from the garage, attic and basement. That will help you get ready for those improvement projects. They can also do a full sweep of the backyard to remove any type of yard debris. Home improvements should always start with a junk removal session from Junk King Columbus.
Recently the defending National Champion Ohio State Synchronized Swimming team played host to the fight annual Zero Waste event that featured the talent swimmers performing in a variety of routines to the delight of all those in attendance. Although it is great to see these athletes in action at any time, this even helped shine a spotlight on Ohio State’s plans for achieving the goal of zero waste.
The plan is for the campus to reach zero waste by 2025. That would mean diverting at least 90 percent of all collected waste away from a landfill and into some form of recycling program. A lot of that waste can be used to create energy or as compost to help grow food. Fan in attendance at the event had access to six new zero waste bins. These bins each have three compartments. One for recycling, compost and landfill. Volunteers were on hand to help with the sorting and a good time was had by all.
Getting to zero waste beyond Ohio State will mean involving homeowners, businesses and the community at large on a grand scale. Resources like the bins provided at Ohio State would have to distributed throughout the region. Everyone would need to pitch in to do their part to sperate the trash that they’re tossing out. Much like recycling paper and plastics, it won’t be hard to get into the zero waste routine.
There are already companies hard at work in support of the zero waste philosophy. One of those companies is Junk King Columbus. As a junk hauling service, Junk King is presented with the landfill option for disposal every day. Thankfully, that is an option they prefer to turn down. Instead of a drop off at a landfill, the Junk King crews often will turn over the items they collect to certified recycling centers or charities. Yes, donating to a charity counts as recycling.
All of these drop offs add hours to the work day for the crew but that’s nothing you have to be concerned about. You also don’t have to designated which items could be recycle. The Junk King crews handle all that work. One of the best zero waste partners in Ohio is Junk King Columbus. Put them to work clearing your clutter today.
