Call On Junk King Portland For Bulk Cardboard Recycling

Junk King Portland For Bulk Cardboard Recycling

“Often when you think you’re at the end of something, you’re at the beginning of something else.”

– Fred Rogers, Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood

Funny enough, when it comes to recycling, this is quite true. Unfortunately, for some waste materials there is a tendency to simply toss them into the trash. And this is often the case for used boxes and other packaging. But the truth is that cardboard recycling can be a new start for the end of an old box!

Of course, it’s relatively easy for many people to put a box or two into their recycling bins. But what do you do when the cardboard and paper waste is more than you can manage

Tackling the Task of Bulk Cardboard Recycling

“When you put the whole picture together, recycling is the right thing to do.” – Pam Shoemaker, Author

Of course, we all want to recycle. Almost nobody thinks that all of our trash should end up in landfills, incinerators, or – far worse – on trash barges going to who-knows-where. But, while we all agree with the principle of recycling, too often we find it difficult to do so easily or efficiently.

Fortunately, the state of Oregon has made strides towards making recycling easier for everyone, even those of us in beautiful Portland. 

Back in August 2021, the Oregon state government signed the Recycling Modernization Act, which became effective on January 1, 202. The recycling program changes outlined in the new law are scheduled to take place in July 2025.

Key elements contained in the Recycling Modernization Act include expanding recycling services to people who may not have previously had access, such as those who live in apartments and rural areas. In addition, the law ensures that material collected is actually recycled and addresses plastic trash that pollutes oceans, rivers, and communities.

Also, there is now a single, comprehensive list for the state that identifies what can be recycled.

This means additional clarity for Oregonians on what can and cannot be recycled which will help our state’s recycling operations to operate more efficiently. Of course, some of the major recyclable items on that list are cardboard boxes, cereal boxes, cartons, and other paper and paperboard waste.

Cardboard is one of those common materials that seem to show up everywhere and in everything. 

If you shop online or work in a retail business, your probably have more cardboard boxes, packaging, and paperboard waste than you know what to do with. “Paperboard” is thicker than paper, by the way, but not quite like cardboard. While it is still just one layer and cardboard is three layers of heavy paper, two flat with a wavy one in the middle, it is just as recyclable as cardboard.

But what if you have boatloads of it?

Bulk Cardboard Waste Shouldn’t End Up in Landfills

“There is no such thing as ‘away’. When we throw anything away it must go somewhere.” 

– Annie Leonard, co-Executive Director of Greenpeace USA

The last thing you want to do with all the bulk cardboard you may find yourself saddled with is to load it into the back of a truck and try hauling it off to the nearest landfill. And with so many of Oregon’s remaining landfills closing in the coming years, this may not even be a viable option soon, fortunately.

In fact, landfills in Oregon are rapidly diminishing according to some sources,

“The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimates at least seven landfills in Oregon will close by 2050, although exact closure dates can fluctuate.

It’s been nearly 30 years since Oregon sited a new landfill, and it’s unlikely the state will ever approve another facility in the Willamette Valley, its most populous region. That’s because of the area’s extremely wet conditions, said Shane Latimer, an environmental planner in Portland who specializes in landfill permitting for SCS Engineers.

‘We will eventually be exporting most of our trash to the eastern drier parts of Oregon,’ Latimer said.”

When it comes to cardboard waste, recycling is the optimal disposal solution. That’s because it is a highly recyclable material. In fact, cardboard packaging can be recycled from five to seven times. 

Here are a few additional facts to keep in mind about recycling cardboard:

  • Dented, ripped, and damaged cardboard can still be recycled
  • You do not have to remove tape or labels as the recycling process will remove these
  • And most milk, juice, and cereal boxes can all be recycled, if clean

Generally speaking, we’re doing pretty good when it comes to recycling paper and cardboard waste. In fact, in 2021, we recovered more than 50 million tons of paper in the U.S. for recycling and the paper recycling rate was 68 percent. Of course, that still means that almost a third of our waste paper products still needs to be diverted from landfills.

And in 2021, the recycling rate for cardboard — what the industry calls corrugated — was 91.4 percent.

When Cardboard Recycling is More than a Trip to the Recycling Bin

So, who ends up with large amounts of waste cardboard to be gotten rid of? Businesses of all types get materials, products, and supplies shipped to them, often in cardboard packaging. But homeowners and renters can find themselves stuck with huge amounts of cardboard, as well.

Here’s a true story:

An older couple decided to sell their home after almost 15 years and relocated to a new home. In the process of packing they made use of hundreds and boxes as well as various types of packing material. Once their move was completed and they finally managed to unpack all their belongings from one and half decades in their previous home, they had a massive amount of empty boxes to get rid of.

Unfortunately for them, they found few people who needed boxes and had no way to dispose of them themselves. The good news, however, is that they called their local Junk King professionals who quickly loaded and hauled away almost 10 cubic yards of flattened, cardboard boxes as well as a dozen bags of waste paper and packaging material!

In a similar instance, a small business opened their first location only to find that there were no means of bundling waste cardboard nor was there enough space in the shared dumpster behind the building. After they unpacked their merchandise, shelving, and other furnishings, they were saddled with large stacks of bulk cardboard waste.

A quick call to Junk King, however, resolved that problem for them quickly and affordably.

When you call Junk King Portland you can be assured that no matter what your junk or bulk waste materials are composed of, we have the means to see that as much of it as possible is recycled. So, don’t settle for making trips to a landfill or a waste transfer station when you can have our expert team do it all for you.

Top Kitchen Appliances for 2023

The new year is a time for renewal and trying different things, which is why so many of us choose to start new projects around that time. If you’ve been thinking about adding some new appliances to your kitchen, then there’s no better time than now to get that started. Whether you’re completely redesigning your kitchen or just adding to your repertoire, here are a few modern kitchen appliance trends that you can use for inspiration as you start making plans for the new year:

Built-In Appliances

Open-concept kitchens have been a popular design for several years now and the trend shows no signs of slowing down. Gone are the days of cramped kitchen counters covered in appliances of all kinds, replaced with spacious kitchens that flow naturally into other rooms. As part of this particular design trend, more and more people have been opting for built-in appliances that are integrated into the counter space instead of sticking out or taking up room somewhere else. If you’re looking for a cooking area that’s a little more adaptable and open, consider finding appliances that are built-in instead of freestanding. Microwaves, stovetops, and ovens are all popular built-in appliances that can be tucked neatly into the existing counter space.

Kitchen Islands

If you have enough space, a kitchen island is a great way to give yourself a little more counter space without compromising your open kitchen plan. An island can also act as a symbolic barrier separating the kitchen area from the rest of the room without having to actually block access in any way. These days, lots of people are integrating their ranges into kitchen islands to centralize the workspace and allow them to engage with the rest of the home while they’re cooking. An island is also a great place for a kitchen sink if you already have your stovetop set up somewhere else.

Appliances with Bright Colors

For a long time, pristine white kitchens were the dominant trend in design, but these days things are starting to change. White can be a little sterile, and more and more people are looking for ways to express a little more personality in their homes, including in the kitchen. Appliances in dark, bold colors can add a great contrast to your kitchen, or more neutral or soft colors can create an inviting feel. Alternatively, you can always just mix and match to create a kitchen vibe that’s all your own.

Stainless Steel

On the other hand, if you’re getting enough color from your kitchen counters, tiles, and backsplashes, stainless steel appliances offer a classic look that never goes out of style. Stainless steel complements just about any other color scheme, and it also holds up well to the inevitable messes that cooking brings. Because steel is a lot less porous than most countertop materials, it’s extremely easy to just wipe clean when you’re finished cooking. Refrigerators, stovetops, and microwaves are a few appliances that look great in stainless steel.

Natural Colors

Another great way to breathe some life into your kitchen is to emphasize natural tones. It’s never a bad idea to add some plants to any room, but that’s especially true if you’re trying to create a warm, lively kitchen. If you have the time and the inclination, the kitchen is a great place to keep an herb garden. You can also pick up some mixing bowls and other dishes in natural colors to help emphasize that vibe. If you have non-patterned tile or backsplashes, then getting some mixing bowls with patterns is a great choice.

Smart Appliances

If you want to bring your kitchen into the 21st century, then now is a great time to check out some of the new smart appliances on the market. Smart fridges have been around for a little while now, but in recent years they’ve been joined by all kinds of other connected appliances. Smart toasters help you make sure your bread is always perfectly brown, and new smart stoves and ranges allow you to focus on other things while you’re cooking. You can even pick up an automatic mixer to save your arm when you’re baking.

Multi-Use Appliances

As trends continue to move towards a more open kitchen plan, open counter space continues to be sought-after. Help clear some of the clutter out of your kitchen by picking up some multi-use appliances that combine a few different things into one package. Stand mixers are a great replacement for a handful of appliances, and there are plenty of combination ovens out there that include convection cookers, air fryers, and all kinds of other features. You can open up some flexibility as well by aiming for cordless appliances that can be placed just about anywhere in the kitchen.

Commercial-Style Appliances

If you’re ready to step your cooking game up to the next level, there are a ton of professional-style appliances out there at consumer prices. Of course, these appliances can be a little more expensive than the standard models, but they offer plenty of features that you can use to cook more complicated meals and dishes. If you already have the standard consumer kitchen of your dreams but still find yourself yearning for more, consider taking a look at some commercial-style appliances.

What About the Old Appliances? When you re-do your kitchen, you might be surprised by how much junk is left over. Not only is there construction debris if you’re changing your counters or other design elements, but you also have to find a way to get rid of the old appliances you’re replacing. That’s where junk removal services come in. With a company like Junk King Portland, you can get all the clean-up taken care of without having to lift a finger yourself. You can get a free cost estimate from Junk King by giving us a call at (503) 549-4734, using our free online price estimation tool, or by setting up an in-person assessment today.

7 Reasons to Rent a Dumpster for Your Next Home Project

Even the most humble home improvement projects will generate plenty of trash and debris. Rather than trying to collect and haul away all that junk themselves, many homeowners are choosing to rent a dumpster for the duration of the project. When you rent from a dumpster rental company, not only do you get a place to dump all the debris, but you also get disposal services as well. When the rental company returns for the dumpster, they’ll haul the contents away with them and ensure they’re correctly disposed of so you don’t have to.

No matter how big or small your project is, a dumpster will help everything go much more smoothly. Here are a few reasons why even small home projects can benefit from a dumpster rental service:


Whether you’re doing the work yourself or bringing in a contracting company to handle it for you, worksite safety should always be a top priority for the full duration of your project. Even if you intend to clean up the leftover debris when the project is over, letting it pile up can be a safety hazard for anyone working there. Loose construction debris is a tetanus shot waiting to happen, and it’s easy to slip and fall if there’s anything underfoot when you’re moving heavy objects or materials. Renting a dumpster allows you to get rid of all the debris as you go, making the site a lot safer.

Easy Disposal

The debris left over from home improvement projects is typically made up of many different materials – wood, metal, tile, glass, and anything else that you can use to build something. When it comes to disposing of all those materials, a big part of the work is separating and sorting them into different piles. Wood, metal, glass, and other recyclable materials need to be separated so they can be reused, and non-recyclable materials have to be sent to a landfill. However, renting a dumpster allows you to throw everything in the same place without sorting it since the rental company will handle it for you after the job is finished.


When you can just throw everything into the same container, it frees up some time you can spend on making sure the project goes as smoothly as possible. Even small renovations require you to focus on a ton of different things at the same time, so taking trash disposal off that list makes things a little easier for you and any workers you’ve hired to help. Renting a dumpster means you can focus on the important things instead of micromanaging debris and other trash.

Pest Prevention

This might not be the most obvious advantage or the first thing you think of, but the truth is that piles of trash or construction debris are perfect hideaways for pests like rats or spiders. If you leave that old wood or tile outside for too long, it could end up attracting some unwanted guests, and removing them can be a real hassle. A dumpster is extremely difficult for animals to climb into and, even if they do make it in, the whole container will just be taken away anyway.

Environmentally Friendly

Renting a dumpster helps out the environment in a couple of ways. The first and most immediate is that it makes disposal easier, reducing the amount of driving you have to do and therefore cutting the carbon emissions of the project. However, saving you a couple of trips back and forth from the landfill doesn’t make the biggest impact on the environment. The main ecological benefit of renting a dumpster is the sorting and recycling service that comes after the junk has been collected. Make sure you hire a company that promises to properly sort and recycle your construction debris – while most do, there are some who just send everything to the landfill instead.

Saving Money

Disposing of trash and construction debris can be surprisingly expensive and many people don’t budget for it, especially since the project is already finished by the time junk disposal comes along. Depending on how much debris is left over, renting a dumpster can actually be cheaper than trying to haul everything away after the job is complete. The bigger the job, the more expensive it’ll be to get rid of all the trash at the end, so keep that in mind when you’re putting together your budget.


We’ve talked a lot about some concrete advantages to renting a dumpster, but sometimes your own convenience and peace of mind is the most important factor when making a decision. At the end of the day, a dumpster rental will save you a whole lot of time and effort and that’s an advantage in and of itself. If you’d rather just relax after the job is finished instead of having to spend time collecting and disposing of all that trash and debris, renting a dumpster can make things a whole lot easier on you. Considering how exhausting home improvement projects can be, that’s a strong reason to make the call.

Consider Full-Service Junk Removal as Well

If renting a dumpster is too much of a hassle or you can’t fit everything inside, full-service junk removal is also an option. Junk removal companies like Junk King Portland will come in and clear away any trash or junk you need to get rid of, no matter what it is. We’ll collect and haul away any construction debris, garbage, furniture, old appliances, yard waste, and anything else short of actual toxic waste. Full junk removal services also don’t require you to lift a finger except to make a phone call, so you don’t have to worry about hauling anything heavy out to the dumpster yourself.

If you’re interested in giving full-service junk removal a try or you just have more questions, you can give Junk King Portland a call today at (503) 549-4734 and we’ll be happy to help you out in any way we can.

The Best Ways to Get Rid of Your Old Shed in Portland



shed removal


Nothing lasts forever – not beauty, not power, and not that shed you spend days building several years ago. Before you know it, the wood will start to rot and fall apart, and eventually, it’ll be time for you to pick up or build a new one. However, before you can start the exciting process of setting up a new shed in your yard or garden, you’ll first have to get rid of the old one. That’s where professional junk removal services like Junk King Portland can enter the picture, although there are a few different ways to get rid of an old shed.


Why You Need to Get Rid of Your Old Shed


The most common cause for shed removal in Portland is rot and other damages from age. The Pacific Northwest is known for its weather, so wooden sheds are vulnerable to damage from the wind and rain. All that weather adds up until finally, it’s time for the old shed to come down and a new one to take its place.


Allowing your old shed to stay up for too long can cause problems other than not having enough space for a new one. Rotting wood is a sanctuary for mold, insects, and other things you don’t necessarily want in the vicinity of your home. Once your shed starts to show too many signs of aging, you’re better off just tearing it down and replacing it with something that won’t attract termites or other creepy crawlies.


Once you’ve made the call, the next step is to figure out how to get rid of a shed. You can always tear it down yourself, but we think the best way to remove a shed is with the help of a professional junk removal company like Junk King.


Top 3 Reasons You Should Hire Professional Help For Shed Removal


When it comes to shed removal in Portland, Oregon, we recommend hiring some professional help like Junk King’s removal service. Tearing down, hauling, and disposing of a shed can be a real pain, and you’ll likely be better off if you get some assistance from the pros. Here are a few reasons why you should hire some help instead of trying to handle the whole thing by yourself:


  • Convenience – This one is pretty obvious, but it’s still relevant. Hiring someone to take care of potentially time-consuming tasks like tearing down and disposing of your old shed can free up a lot of time you can use to focus on more important things. This can be especially convenient if you’re already in the process of overhauling your yard or trying to find and set up a new shed. Companies like Junk King that offer trash removal in Portland, Oregon are generally experienced enough to handle the teardown in only a few minutes.


  • Safety – Between rickety supports and rusty nails, taking a shed apart and disposing of the pieces can be more hazardous than you might expect. That’s especially true if you used heavy or thick planks of wood when it was first put together. If you feel at all unsure about taking the shed apart by yourself, bringing in professional help is always preferable to a tetanus shot or a back injury.


  • Proper Disposal – This goes for any and all junk – if you want to make sure that every piece of trash ends up in the right place instead of all heading for the landfill, then eco-friendly junk removal companies like Junk King Portland are always a safe bet. About 60% of everything we bring in ends up being recycled, and the only limit on that figure is the recycling policies of the area.


Tips on Choosing the Right Junk Removal Service


The best way to find the right junk removal service for you is by using reviews and personal recommendations to make a list of the most reputable companies in the area. We’d recommend sticking with reviews on Google or Facebook since Yelp’s reviews are known to be unreliable. This process will give you a good sense of which junk removal companies have positive reputations and which ones don’t, which is a great first step.


Once you’ve narrowed down a list of companies with solid reputations, you can start collecting estimates to compare prices. Any reputable junk removal service, including Junk King Portland, Oregon, will offer free written estimates to all potential customers so a price can be agreed upon before any work starts. You can get an estimate from Junk King by setting up an on-site appointment, calling Junk King’s phone number at 1-888-888-JUNK, texting a photo of the trash in question to 1-737-888-5865, or using our free online price estimation tool. If you call a junk removal company and they refuse to offer an estimate in writing, that should be considered a red flag.


Why People Hire Junk King for Their Shed Removal Needs


For years, Junk King has been the premiere choice for trash removal in the Portland area because of our professionalism, customer service, and low prices. In fact, if you happen to get a written estimate for your shed removal that’s lower than what we offered, we guarantee to beat that price. Junk King Portland is also well-known for our environmentally-friendly disposal methods, making sure that everything that can possibly be recycled will be. When you call Junk King, we can have an appointment set up for you as soon as possible, often even on the same day you called.


If you have any other questions about how junk removal services can help with your old shed, or you’re interested in setting up an appointment, you can give Junk King a call at 1-888-888-JUNK or get in touch with us through our website, where we can answer questions or get you set up with an appointment.

Portland Junk Removal for HOAs: Tips and Tricks from Junk King


HOA Junk Removal


Being part of a homeowner association can be a great way to take part in your community, but it does come with some rules that have to be followed. HOAs tend to be pretty strict about keeping your property clean, which means you’ll have to stay on top of any messes that might pop up on your lawn, sidewalk, or anywhere else outside your home. Failing to keep your house looking clean and neat can result in fines and other consequences, so it’s important to follow the HOA rules and regulations.


Mowing your lawn, trimming hedges, and picking up any trash that escapes the bins is easy enough, but things become more difficult when bigger messes show up. Construction debris from a remodel, yard waste from a landscaping push, and other one-time generators of waste can be trickier to get rid of, and HOAs aren’t known for being flexible with their rules. That’s where professional junk removal companies like Junk King Portland come in. These services can provide you with the help you need to clean up after a project or spring cleaning so you can stay on your HOA’s good side.


The Benefits of Hiring a Professional Junk Removal Company


Professional junk removal services can be a real asset for cleaning up big messes. The most significant advantage, of course, is the convenience factor. Getting rid of junk and other waste is a time-consuming process, and it can be a lot for one person to handle by themselves. The best junk haulers will take care of everything for you, from collecting the trash and loading it up in the truck to sorting it and making sure it ends up in the right place. This can save you hours of time you can spend with your family or working on other projects.


Another major benefit is making sure everything is handled properly. That means recycling everything that can be recycled, donating in-demand materials, and only bringing unsalvagable junk to the landfill. Professional expertise can also be helpful when you have to get rid of larger pieces of junk, like furniture and heavy appliances. When you break down the junk removal cost, it’s really just paying a single fee for hauling, truck rental, and trash disposal all at once. Unless you have a big enough truck of your own, bringing in professional junk haulers can actually be the most cost-effective way to dispose of large messes as well as the most convenient.


Common Items Required to be Removed by HOA Rules


Generally, HOAs will have very specific rules restricting what you’re allowed to have in your yard or outside your house. Any trash, junk, or debris is obviously a no-go and will typically have to be removed as quickly as possible. Any junk or furniture left over from a deep cleaning will also have to be disposed of pretty quickly and generally can’t be left on the curb to be picked up later, as convenient as that might be. The same goes for any yard waste removal in Portland HOAs.


HOAs also have pretty strict rules concerning outside structures like playgrounds or sheds. As soon as they start to look a little rickety or old, you might want to have them torn down and replaced with something a little less unsightly. If you take a look at the list of what Junk King can remove, you’ll see that Junk King Portland can help with pretty much anything your HOA might restrict, from lawn trimmings to broken-down swingsets.


Tips for Getting Rid of Junk in an HOA Community


When it comes to following HOA guidelines, the single most important thing you can do is make sure you’re removing junk as promptly as possible. Community organizations like HOAs aren’t known for being especially flexible, so it’s a good idea to take care of anything unsightly as soon as you can just to make sure you don’t run afoul of any regulations.


You’ll also want to make sure any cleaning you do is both careful and thorough. Not only do you not want to miss anything, but you also don’t want to run the risk of damaging anything else during the cleaning process. This is especially relevant for larger objects like furniture that can damage hallway paint and other public spaces.


Before you do anything, you should take a look at the rules and regulations provided by your HOA. A quick double-check can help you avoid any potential infractions as well as possibly provide you with resources or recommended companies to work with. Some HOAs prefer to form relationships with a single junk removal company they know and trust, so it’s worth checking in to see if they have any recommendations.


What is the Cost of an HOA Junk Removal Service?


The cost of an HOA junk removal will depend pretty heavily on how much junk you need to have removed. That’s why Junk King Portland offers free estimates for every job we do, so we have a chance to assess the work before deciding on a price that works for you. Estimates can be done on-site, over the phone, or by texting a picture of the junk to us. The final HOA service cost will depend on how much junk there is, how bulky the objects are, and how much room the whole thing is going to take up in our truck.
