How To Get Rid Of Winter Rubbish Today

What kind of winter rubbish do you have cluttering up your home? Winter rubbish would be all those things that you would normally use in the winter but have no plans of doing so this time around. Winter coats and boots that no longer fit are a perfect example of winter rubbish that is taking up valuable storage space in your home. The same could be said for any old sleds or snowboards that the kids have outgrown. How much space are they taking up in your garage? When you sort through it all, you’ll realize there is no reason to hold onto winter rubbish. That’s where Junk King Philadelphia comes into scenario. You want that clutter gone?

Fun Recycling Facts To Share

Recycling is part of our daily lives. Even if you don’t toss a water bottle into a recycling bin today, you probably opened a container made from recycled paper or drove on a road made from recycled asphalt. Recycling touches a lot of our world. How much do you know about recycling? You’ll know a lot after checking out these fun facts:

Recycling is all about saving energy. How much energy gets saved when you recycled one ton of paper? That comes out to 682 gallons of oil, 7,000 gallons of water and 3.3 cubic yards of landfill space. That’s a lot of saving on many levels.

About paper… 95% of all the data in the world is still stored on paper. And most of that data is never looked at again. That means there are tons and tons of paper sitting in filing cabinets, binders and storerooms that will just gather dust instead of being recycled. Yes, emails might have changed the way we communicate but we’re still using a lot of paper. Tough habit to break.

Plastic water bottles make up a large portion of the recycling stream. When you recycle a single plastic bottle, you’re conserving enough energy to light a 60-watt bulb for up to six hours. Remember, it takes less energy to recycle an item than it does to create it from scratch. That’s the whole game, right there. In the next hour, Americans will have thrown away 2.5 million plastic bottles. What happens if they end up in a landfill? Literally nothing because it takes 500 years for a plastic bottle to decompose.

There is also a real danger to animal life when we don’t recycle. Thousands of marine creates die by mistakenly swallowing a plastic bag. They think it looks like a jellyfish. Tragic. It’s a good enough reason to ban plastic bags.

What about soda cans? Every year, we toss out enough soda cans and bottles to reach the moon and back… 20 times. That’s a lot of cans out there.

How are you doing with your home recycling program? It is easy to get into the habit of recycling but you shouldn’t stop at plastic, paper and aluminum. You can also recycle all the junk you want to clear out of your house. At least you can if you hire Junk King Philadelphia for the job. These professional junk haulers have partnered up with several recycling facilities around the area and are happy to drop off your stuff to those centers. Keep up your recycling and get your junk repurposed with help from Junk King Philadelphia.

Before The Holidays Send Your Junk Packing

December 19th. That is an important day to remember for anyone sending Christmas gifts. That is the last day that the postal service will guarantee that the person you’re sending to will get the gift by Christmas. If you think the lines at the post office are bad now, then just try to send something on that day. Hopefully, you’ll get everything shipped long before that cut off. It helps to do some pre-planning around the holiday season. That also includes getting your house in order. Now is the perfect time to schedule your junk removal session with Junk King Philadelphia to get your home totally junk free for the holidays.

Getting rid of junk might have been a task you’ve been putting off for some time. If you missed clearing clutter during your spring break cleaning, then perhaps you wanted to wait until summer. Of course, who wants to take on that kind of job in the summer? The thing to remember about hiring Junk King is that you won’t actually be doing any work. You also won’t be sacrificing a lot of time either.

Junk King will send a crew over to your home to do all the heavy lifting. That includes climbing stairs. All they ask is that you set aside a two-hour window for the appointment. Most removal sessions only take a fraction of that two-hour. That “window” is put in place to give the crews time to get from one appointment to the next. Much better than the five-hour window the phone company asks for!

The moment the crew arrives, they want to get busy. That starts with them looking over all the things you want to get rid of. They don’t have to be in a single pile. They know how to size things up. This is how they’ll determine the price. It is going to be based on how much room your stuff is going to fill on the back of the truck. One rate covers everything from the pick up to the drop off. Get your holidays off to a junk free start with a Junk King Philadelphia session today.
