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.
These are the junk removal experts or “private hauler” that the city wants you to contract.

When it comes to cleaning up Philadelphia parks, nothing beats the hard work of volunteers.

Whenever you hear a newscaster use the phrase, “It’s that time of year again” they could mean almost anything. Whether they’re talking about the dog show, Mother’s Day or a 4th of July parade it’s a snappy way to start a story. However, this is one “it’s that time of year again” that you should absolutely pay attention to and that would be the start of mosquito season. Already the warning alarms are going out about the potential of another West Nile Virus outbreak here in Bucks County. Last year there were 60 cases reported that resulted on four deaths so, yes, this is a very serious matter.
The local government is stepping up with some grant money targeted to West Nile surveillance and prevention. The state’s official West Nile Virus Surveillance and Control Program offers some helpful guidelines on how to reduce the risk of mosquito infestation. Among those specific tips are:
“Dispose of tin cans, plastic containers, ceramic pots or similar water-holding containers that have collected on your property. Pay special attention to discarded tires. Stagnant water in tires is where most mosquitoes breed. Drill holes in the bottom of recycling containers left outdoors. Have clogged roof gutters cleaned every year, particularly if the leaves from surrounding trees have a tendency to plug up the drains. Roof gutters can produce millions of mosquitoes each season. Turn over plastic wading pools when not in use. Stagnant water in a wading pool becomes a place for mosquitoes to breed. Turn over wheelbarrows and don’t let water stagnate in birdbaths. Both provide breeding habitats for domestic mosquitoes. Aerate ornamental pools or stock them with fish. Water gardens can become major mosquito producers if they are allowed to stagnate. Clean and chlorinate swimming pools not in use. A swimming pool left untended by a family on vacation for a month can produce enough mosquitoes to result in neighborhood-wide complaints. Mosquitoes may even breed in the water that collects on pool covers.”
Basically what they’re saying is clean up your yards to prevent the bitters from taking up residence. Whatever you can’t throw out in the garbage you can have Junk King Bucks County pick up. We’re talkig about big items that are difficult to haul off. These are the junk removal experts who provide you with the right amount of muscle and truck space to clear out all kinds of clutter from your home.

Typically, home downsizing is often thought of for retirees as a way to carve out a more manageable lifestyle. However, more and more younger couples are thinking about downsizing their lives as a way of preparing for eventual retirement. It all comes down to a matter of financial security and planning. The most obvious downsizing consideration is to make a move from a big house to a smaller living space like a condo or loft apartment. A move might facilitate being closer to family members or to a job. It might also make sense to move from a noisy, urban neighborhood to a more serene suburban setting. Either way, the goal should be to make your life less complicated.
As the home market begins to turn around, this is a good time to buy but that doesn’t mean over extending yourself. Some folks might have found themselves in a house that is too big to pay for. When you factor in property taxes based on size, heating, electric and water bills then you’ve got a huge monthly amount to come up with. A downsizing move can also put you into a smart home that uses energy efficient appliances and even solar power. Would you rather be spending your hard earn salary on power bills or saving for the future?
Before making a downsizing move you have to assess what you want to take with you. The key is to take less with you then what you have. That includes less furniture and less stuff. What pieces of furniture do you use every day? Do you have a huge dining room table that is only set once a year? Is there a spare guestroom that never has any guests? Do you really need a basement that is just for storage? This is the time to let go of all that useless stuff. Junk King Bucks County can be your ally.
Junk King Bucks County is the local professional junk hauling company that provides exceptional service for all kinds of hauling. For a downsizing move, you can hire Junk King to take away your stuff before packing up the good things. This will save money when you do the actual move because you won’t have to pay extra time for the professional movers.
Even if you don’t want to move your home, you can still consider downsizing your junk. If you’ve run out of closet space or you can’t park your car in your garage, then clearly it’s time to reach out to Junk King Bucks County for help. They’ll provide you with the manpower and truck; you provide them with junk! It’s just that simple.
A few residents in Doylestown might have recently experienced a delay in their mail delivery. That’s because a mail truck bound for the area got into a bit of a mishap. When a cargo strap broke on a mail truck at the intersection of Bristol Road, the contents shifted and busted out of the back gate. The result was several bins of undelivered mail scattered all over the road. Postal workers and police scrambled to gather up all the mail but it had to go back to the processing center in Philly to be resorted and then delivered to Doylestown. It took about 2 hours to clear up the mess. Needless to say, morning rush hour traffic was at a standstill.
This is clearly a cautionary tale about moving: If you overload your truck, you could have all of that spilling out onto the highway. If you’re planning a move, you want to make sure you’re only taking what you need for your new home and not all of your junk. You can’t leave it behind. Instead, hire Junk King Bucks County for a junk move before the real move.
No matter where you are living now, it’s a safe bet that you’ve probably accumulated a lot of junk over the years. Remember when you first moved into your space? All those empty rooms and closets? Even a garage that you could park a car in. What happened over the following years is what happens to everyone; your house got filled up with stuff. Most of what we have in our homes are practical items like furniture, TVs, kitchen appliances, bedroom sets and clothes. Yet every one of those items could have been replaced over the years. What happened to the old stuff? Because you couldn’t throw it away, it ended up in your basement, garage or attic. Out of sight and out of mind, right? Well, now that you’re moving you certainly don’t want to take all that useless stuff with you. That’s where Junk King comes into play.
As you start to pack up what you’re taking with you, set aside that stuff you want tossed out. Better yet, leave it where it is but just put a Post-It note on it saying “For Junk King.” Then schedule a removal appointment with Junk King Bucks and let them handle the rest. They’ll take away all that stuff and make sure it is properly disposed of. Usually this will mean the vast bulk of what you’re throwing out will either be recycled or refurbished by a local charity. But that’s nothing you have to worry about. The Junk King Bucks county crew will figure out what the best final destination for your junk will be. Give Junk King a call today for your pre-move junk removal.
Ready for a new fridge? You might be if your old refrigerator is failing to keep your frozen goodies frozen or your veggies crisp. It’s understandable if your fridge is several years old that it will be worn down. You can’t expect to drive a car forever and you can’t expect a refrigerator to last forever either. When you’re ready to head out to the appliance store the first thing you’ll want to take with you is a good set of measurements. Not all refrigerators are created alike. Just because the new model in the store looks the same size as your current model doesn’t mean it will fit into the custom space. Don’t take any chances. The last thing you want to happen is to get rid of your old fridge and then have the new one show up and not have it fit into your kitchen.
The next consideration to think about is where you want your freezer: top, bottom or on the side. You might be used to a certain configuration but there’s no reason why you can’t upgrade to a new variation. What’s the most common use of your fridge? A freezer on top allows for bigger platter type of boxes like pizza or cakes. If you’re someone who uses a lot of frozen foods then you’ll want them easily within reach such. The reverse is true for a freezer on the bottom of the unit: If you find yourself using fresh food more often then you’ll want an easy reach for those items. When picking a model with a freezer on the bottom, look for one with a drawer that will make it easier to find what you seek. A side-by-side model is perfect for someone who likes to go in the freezer and fresh sides equally. The disadvantage with this type of fridge is that the compartment are a bit smaller so you might not be able to store as much without feeling “crowded.”
No matter which type of model you settle on, you want to make sure it has adjustable shelves so you can set the height you want for your food items. As long as you’re buying a new model, you should also look into some features like ice and water dispenser or even a built in TV! Why not splurge if you’re going be using your new icebox for years to come. Of course, before you accept delivery you’ll want to make room by getting rid of the old model. Junk King Bucks County is the professional junk hauling service that can help with that. Not only will they be able to take away your fridge in their own truck, but they can also haul away any other junk items you want taken out in the same trip. Room for a new fridge and a clutter free home can be yours with a single call to Junk King Bucks County, PA.
When was the last time you had a really good night’s sleep? When you eliminate all the standard reasons like removing stressful thoughts or making sure your home is quiet it might just come down to the issue of whether or not your mattress is comfortable. If you can’t even remember when you bought your mattress then it’s clearly time to get a new one. To get the most out a mattress you can only expect to have it for 5 to 8 years. Beyond that you’re on borrowed sleeping time. Before you head out to buy a new mattress you’ll want to consider these tips:
First of all, wear comfortable clothes. Yes, you should be prepared to lay down on a your potential mattress. If you’re bundled up in layers of clothes you’re not going to get a real sense of how that mattress feels. This doesn’t mean you should show up at the mattress store in your pajamas but you want to be able to feel the support you’re getting. You should really narrow your choices down to a few top picks and then give them at least a ten-minute test. Don’t be embarrassed to really give yourself time to feel the mattress; just don’t fall asleep!
A memory foam mattress has become a very popular item because it’s really comfortable. However, that foam might not hold up as long as the standard coil type of mattress. It’s best to find a mattress that can not only be rotated but flipped over. These dual mattress will hold their shape and firmness a lot longer than the average foam mattress.
When shopping for a coil mattress be sure to count your coils. Six hundred coils in a queen size bed is the average support for adults. Not only is the number of coils important but also the size of the gauge wire. The thicker the gauge the more support but it will also cost a bit more as you go up in size.
Even if you think you’ve picked the right mattress it is still going to take a bit for your body to adjust. Give yourself at least four weeks before deciding whether or not this is the right mattress for you. If not, then return it for a new model. Just make sure the store’s return policy will cover that return.
You’re also going to need to get rid of that old mattress. While it is true that some companies offer mattress removal there is usually an extra fee. What they can’t do is remove some of your other junk in the same trip. To get rid of a mattress and other bulky items you’ll be best off making the decision to hire Junk King Bucks County. They are the junk removal specialists who will provide you with a capable removal crew complete with their own truck. All you have to do is keep your pillows and pick out the junk you want removed. Let Junk King Bucks County help you get a good night’s rest… finally!
It might seem like a crazy idea to take a soak in a hot tub when that tub is surrounded by snow but for those devotees of a soothing soak nothing beats a winter dip. The key is to make sure your hot tub is protected in the winter. Most models have a kind of “no-freeze” setting. This keeps the temperature of the water at an even warm setting throughout the day and night to prevent the pipes from freezing up. If you have a hot tub that only operates on a timer, you might have to adjust the settings to make sure to avoid those potential freeze-ups.
As the temperature drops, it’s going to take longer for you to heat up that tub. You’ll just have to adjust your timing so the tub will be ready when you are. You can reduce your energy output by utilizing a good heating cover or a floating thermal blanket. Think of when you’ve wanted to boil water; a lid on the pot speeds things along. Keep in mind that when it snows you’ll want to make sure you brush off that snow from the hot tub cover.
Then there is the lesson we can all learn from “A Christmas Story:” A wet surface and metal don’t mix in freezing temperatures. Make sure when you’re coming out of the tub that you don’t grab a hold of any aluminum doors or flagpoles!
If you have a hot tub that hasn’t survived from previous winters it might be empty and useless. Isn’t it time to get back to what you’ve been missing by buying a new hot tub? Deals are to be had for sure but first you’ve got to get rid of that old hot tub and that’s where Junk King Bucks County can be a big help.
