Pittsburgh Refrigerator Disposal

According to the city of Pittsburgh Freon appliances are things like refrigerators, dehumidifiers and air conditioners. These are items that can’t merely be tossed out on the curb. They have to be properly disposed of. That’s not an easy task if you are doing this on your own. The moment you have deemed a refrigerator in non-use you’re going to either have to remove the door or secure it with a lock. Not to do so would result in a fine and citation. Doesn’t matter if you’re putting that fridge in a garage and don’t have any kids living with you; those precautions still have to be taken. There are a few certified drop-off centers around the Pittsburgh area where you can take your old refrigerator but again, that is easier said than done. If you want a hassle-free approach to refrigerator disposal than the only call you should be making is to Junk King Pittsburgh.

It was probably a two-man crew who had to carefully unload the fridge and then maneuver it up steps and around walls into your kitchen.

Pittsburgh Yard Waste Removal

For the past two years the Pittsburgh Community Cleanup has swept through the area over the MLK holiday weekend picking up tons of trash all across the community. This year promised to be even bigger and organizers weren’t disappointed as hundreds of volunteers showed up loaded down with garbage bags, gloves, rakes and a positive attitude. By the end of the cleanup project there were truckloads of stuffed garbage bags making their way to recycling centers and certified landfill. Although all the volunteers were enthusiastic about the project, it was all a sad reminder how careless many folks are who dump their garbage everywhere. Tossing out the occasional soda can is bad enough but when people go through the effort of throwing out things like sofas, shopping carts, tires and kitchen appliances they are doing a lot of potential harm to Pittsburgh.

A cleanup effort like this should inspire you to make a sweep of your own front and back yard. By cleaning up your property you could be motivating your neighbors to do the same. Pretty soon the entire community will be sparkling. Wouldn’t that be great? If cleaning up your yard seems like a big task, you can find help by hiring Junk King Pittsburgh.

The big difference is the Junk King crew is happily doing this kind of work all through the week.

When you hire Junk King Pittsburgh they’ll be working on your schedule. Whatever is convenient for the pickup is when they’ll be at your house.

This means you could have your yard clear of debris in no time. If the last storm dumped some unwanted tree branches or roof shingles, the JK crew will load them up in a flash.
