Philadelphia Bulk Trash Pickup

When it comes to bulky and oversized items, the Philadelphia department of sanitation has some very specific guidelines. These are: “The Streets Department does not accept metal oversized items or tires as part of curbside collection. Automotive tires and appliances, such as stoves, washing machines, refrigerators, hot water heaters, etc. should be taken away by a private hauler, or residents may bring these items (limit of two oversized items and four tires) to one of our Sanitation Convenience Centers.” In reality, there is nothing very convenient about any of this.

If you wanted to get rid of a hot water heater, you would certainly need to rent some sort of van or truck. Then you would need to find a friend or two (or three!) who would be up for the challenge of lifting that heavy object. Once it was loaded, you’ll then be sacrificing even more time off as you make your way through the traffic to one of those “convenience” centers. There is a better way and that involves hiring Junk King Bucks County.

Haul Away Junk King From Your Philadelphia Home

christmas-treeFor many folks, decorating the Christmas tree is all about tradition. There are always a bunch of ornaments that make an annual appearance. Plus everyone has a preferred method for hanging lights. And let’s not forget color schemes. Oddly enough, all the work we put into decorating our trees is usually only seen by a handful of family and friends. That’s not the case with the Festival of Trees currently on display at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel on South Broad Street in downtown Philly. This is a collection of Christmas trees decorated by local groups and businesses that are on proud display for everyone to see. It’s a great opportunity to show some personality and share the joys of the season.

If you’re putting up a tree this year, then you’re going to clear out the corner once again. This could be as simple as moving out the recliner.
