Does Your Pittsburgh Home Need Rubbish Removal?

What do a rusty refrigerator, a television, two truck batteries, lawn chairs, tires and plastic bottles all have in common? Those are all the rubbish items that were removed from the second annual Susquehanna River Cleanup Project. When the day was done, upwards of 6,000 pounds of trash were cleared from the area. That would be three tons of trash dumped at this site. You might be able to understand how a careless visitor would leave behind a water bottle but when it comes to dumping a refrigerator, that takes irresponsible behavior to a whole new level. It would be fitting if those junk items could be returned to their original owners and dumped on their lawn. Sadly, that won’t happen. It’s just comforting to know there are local residents dedicated to keeping Pittsburgh clean.

When it comes to your own home rubbish removal project, you won’t need to try and coordinate an army of volunteers. All you have to do is reach out to Junk King to set up a professional junk hauling session. Junk King will supply you with a very capable two-man moving crew who will do all the heavy lifting. That means someone else can carry the sofa up from the basement or that trunk down from the attic. Won’t that make your rubbish removal task go a lot quicker? Junk King will also supply you with truck capable of holding all that you’re throwing out. You won’t have to drive that truck; that is for the crew to handle. They’re also going to make sure what they collect on your rubbish removal appointment is disposed of in a responsible manner. Junk King is dedicated to eco-friendly policies, which mean plenty of recycling and donating. That should make you feel great about getting rid of your rubbish!

Take note that all the rubbish removal from the inside of your home provided by Junk King can continue in the outside of your home. You can ask the crew to do a tour of your back and front yard to remove whatever items you want gone for good. That can include patio furniture, swing sets, planters and rusty lawnmowers. It can also mean yard clippings, leaves and fallen tree branches. If it can be picked up, then Junk King can load it onto their truck. No reason to stress out over rubbish removal when you’ve got Junk King on the job.

 

Dumpster Rentals vs. Junk Pick Up In Pittsburgh

How often does your garbage overflow from the trashcans? We’ve all been there. Instead of taking the garbage out in a full bag, we might be able to buy another day by stuffing down the garbage. This is the basic theory behind the trash compactor. However, there are those occasions when no amount of trashcan stuffing will do the right. This could happen after a major home cleanup or a remodeling job with piles of demolition and construction waste. When you know you’re going to have excessive amounts of rubbish, your best option is to bring in outside help. The question then becomes should you go with a dumpster rental or a professional junk pick up service?

Dumpster rentals aren’t an exact science. A contractor who has experience using dumpsters might be able to decide the perfect size dumpster for your needs. However, you’re not always going to be able to hire a contractor especially if you’re just cleaning out your garage. Instead, you’ll have to make the best guess as to the right size for your needs. Keep in mind that you can’t overfill a dumpster. All of your trash has to fit within several inches of the top rim to allow a tarp to be pulled over the dumpster for transport. On the other hand, when you hire a professional junk pick up service like Junk King there is no limit to what you can get rid you. You’ll have a large moving van to fill all the way up if need be.

When you rent a dumpster, it will be secured in place but then the work of loading it up will fall on your shoulders. You can hire your own crew to do the loading or risk straining your back with that work. With Junk King, you’ll be provided a two-man moving crew who will pick up whatever you’re throwing out from wherever it happens to be. You don’t have to carry something up the stairs or out to the curb. The Junk King crew will do all of that.

A dumpster rental is not an “in and out” kind of job. Typically, you will have to keep that dumpster for at least three days. That’s a lot of time for something that big to be sitting on your property. There is no telling what it could attract. Junk King can take care of your total junk removal in a single appointment and that session will last as long as it takes to fill up the truck with your rubbish. When you add it all up, it’s clear the for quality junk pick up Junk King is the only way to go.
