Pittsburgh Junk Hauling – Most of it is simply junk

Whenever the “Antiques Roadshow” rolls into town there are hundreds of folks lining up with their “treasures” hoping those items really are treasures. Recently the popular PBS show made a Pittsburgh pit stop. One of the highlights for the appraisers was reverse painted glass sign still in its original frame. The sign was made for the Economy Distilling Co. to promote “Pure Rye and Malt Whiskey.” The sign notes the company, from “Pittsburgh,” was established by the Harmony Society in 1927. The woman happened upon the sign in an trash heap that was part of a building demolition. Once something is tossed out as trash, it’s literally up for grabs and that find is going to fetch a tidy sum for that lucky pedestrian.

Do you think you have a hidden treasure in your attic? It’s worth doing a little investigation. Here’s a tip: for any item to be of true value it has to be in pretty good condition. This is referred to as “mint” condition. Water damage, rust, aging or other signs of breakage is going to decrease the value of that item. No matter how rare it might be, no serious collector is going to shell out big bucks for something that is less than pristine. Without those perfect conditions, those items are going to be worthless, a.k.a. junk. As soon as  you’re ready to let go of that junk, there is only one call to make: Junk King Pittsburgh (1-800-995-5865).

Pittsburgh Junk Removal

If you’ve ever thrown a party for teenagers, you might think that your kitchen and living room could be declared a hazardous site. As it happens, there is a real hazardous site in the Pittsburgh area that was in the need of a serious cleanup. Now that job has garnered the attention of the U.S. Department of Justice and the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection. They recently issued a lawsuit against 17 companies in the hopes of recovering some of the costs of cleaning up a Superfund clean-up site in Lawrence County. This specific site is located in West Pittsburg and was run by Reactive Metals and Alloys Corp., or Remacor.

When it was up and running the processing plant brought in magnesium shavings and scrap that was then melted down into a reagent used in steel production. A 2005 fire forced the plant to shutter but for some bizarre reason it continued to take in magnesium waste. How much? Around 6 million pounds. Back in 2006, the DEP and the EPA removed all of that waste for the hefty price of $10 million. Now they want to get some of that money back from those 17 defendant companies who dropped the magnesium waste off at Remacor. That makes sense and it certainly puts your own “toxic waste” situation into perspective.

Hearing about a major cleanup like that might inspire you to enlist you own work crew to clear out the junk from your basement, attic, closets or garage. The perfect partner for this type of job would be Junk King Pittsburgh. Junk King Pittsburgh is made up of professional junk removal specialists who would love to take that junk off your hands.

Junk King can take care of the dirty work – those items that are too heavy or messy to handle hauling away on your own. Or maybe you could drag bulky items out to your backyard or porch but that’s not where you want them to live, is it? With Junk King on the job you’ll have a crew of experienced haulers who will do the lifting of those objects. All of that junk will go on the back of the Junk King truck destined for the nearest recycling center or certified landfill. Yes, Junk King is also a green company. They want to make sure most of the junk they collect gets recycled, repurposed and reused.

The way that Junk King works is simple. A supervisor will come out to your property to determine the amount of junk you’re getting rid of in terms of how much space it will take up in the truck. That’s how they determine how much you’ll be charged. Unlike other companies, you won’t be paying hourly labor costs or dumping fees. It’s the volume price and that’s all! With Junk King Pittsburgh in your corner, getting rid of clutter has never been easier.
