Philadelphia Refrigerator Disposal

Philadelphia Refrigerator DisposalOver at the Appliance Recycling Centers of American Philadelphia facility they’ve fired up new system that has been designed to target refrigerators. This is the UNTHA Recycling Technology or URT systems that can recover around 95% of insulating foam that is in a fridge. This same cruncher can also extract high-end plastics, aluminum, cooper and steel. With the addition of this new piece of equipment, the facility could handle up to 150,000 fridges in a single year. These ice boxes might not all be from Philly but also shipping in from the surrounding areas. What does this mean for your old fridge? Obviously, it will mean it can be properly disposed of. The trick is getting it from your home to that recycling center. To take care of that refrigerator disposal job you need only call Junk King Bucks County.

It might be easy to occasionally slide your fridge across your kitchen floor to do some cleaning but it’s not really going to go further than a few inches without the need for help. And if you’ve got some stairs to climb down then you’re not only going to need some extra muscle but also the right moving equipment. All of that can be provided by Junk King. Whether the Junk King crew that will be showing up at your home prefers the dolly or straps you can rest assured that your fridge can be taken away without causing any damage to your floors or walls.

That fridge will be loaded up on the back of the Junk King Bucks truck. If that’s all you’re getting rid of then the JK crew will take off for the rest of their pickups. However, you can take full advantage of that crew to remove all kinds of other junk you’re holding onto. These could be those heavy objects that landed in your garage or basement and have been stuck there for years. That Junk King crew won’t have any issues removing those things and loading them on the truck.

Not everything you’re tossing out can be recycled. There might be some pieces of furniture that can be fixed up. If so, then the Junk King Bucks County crew will drop that off to a local charity that handles that kind of operation. All of these drop offs are part of the complete Junk King package. They are also covered by the estimated rate you’ll be presented with before any work will start. That rate is based on the volume of your junk when it is placed on the back of the truck. There will be no hidden charges. Let Junk King be your direct line from getting rid of your old fridge and the rest of your junk.

Philadelphia Yard Waste Disposal

Yard Waste Removal PhiladelphiaWhat is standing in the way of city work crews from cleaning up vacant lots? That would be some padlocks slap on fences around those lost. However, a local Councilman is hoping to change all that. Second District rep Kenyatta Johnson recently introduced a measure which will help the Community Life Improvement Program a great deal. It’s simple: If a work crew comes upon a vacant lot with a locked fence they can clip the lock and get to work.

“It gives them the authority to pop the lock,” Johnson said. “They’ll go in, clean up the site, they’ll bill the owner and then put another lock back on and lock the gate back up. Hopefully this will serve as an incentive for slum landlords to get their act together. Because we can’t tolerate these types of negative eyesores.”

There might be some questions about the legality of this measure but it appears that the needs of the community will take precedence over a derelict landlord.

“We’re talking about protecting people’s rights,” said Johnson. “But at the same time, people have the right to live in a clean neighborhood. So because you own four or five lots, and you’re not taking care of those lots, you’re letting people dump on those lots, why should I live among your filth?”

This brings up the question of what is standing in the way of you cleaning up all the clutter around your home? Maybe you just need to dedicate the time for a good cleaning. Getting ready for holiday guests is a perfect motivator. However, when it comes to moving out those bigger pieces of junk you might need help. You’ll find that help when you call Junk King Bucks County.

These are tables, sofas and chairs that nobody in the family wants and they can put them out on the curb. With a Junk King Bucks crew on the job bringing those heavy objects up from the basement will be a snap. After all the junk from inside the home is loaded up, that same JK crew can do a tour around your yards taking away anything else you want tossed out.
