Did you know that the original xerox copy machines were sold with a fire extinguisher? That’s because the machines tended to overheat so much that they would occasionally literally start fires. Office equipment certainly has come a long way since then. Today, computers that once took up an entire floor are now in a single desktop. With all the innovations in office equipment, there’s an opportunity to stay on the cutting age by upgrading. What happens to the old office equipment? That can’t be toss out into the trash and it probably can’t be sold because it is outdated. What happens then is that it goes into your office storerooms taking up valuable space. That can all change with a single call to Junk King Portland.
The moment a piece of office equipment stops being used it becomes e-waste. Essentially that means it is something that shouldn’t ever be in a landfill. It has to be dismantled at a certified recycling center where all the components can be carefully disposed of in a responsible manner. Junk King doesn’t do the dismantling but they can certainly help get that item to the certified recycling center. This is the way they have been disposing of the rubbish they collect for over 14 years. In that time, they have diverted literally tons of e-waste and other rubbish away from landfills and into repurposing. This is really the only way to handle this type of rubbish and you should accept nothing less!

Can you imagine what 14 million tons of trash would look like? It would be a massive pile of slimy, oozy mess attracting all kinds of undesirable vermin. It would also have an atrocious smell. This is why no one would ever think of spending time in a landfill unless of course that landfill has been revitalized. In northern Portland, the St. Johns landfill was effectively shut down back in 1990. It was sealed with a cover system that prevents seepage. Now this 240-acre site is being transformed into a habitat of native wildflowers and rare birds. It is not open to the public yet but soon it could be a destination for birdwatchers and folks who just want to “get back to nature” even if that means standing on 14 million tons of trash!
The transformation of this landfill is not the only one of its kind. Many such areas have been reclaimed and revitalize once the trash has been properly covered. The hope for the future is that eventually landfills will become obsolete. The only way to achieve that zero waste goal is to involve businesses, governments and communities in the effort. It also helps to know where your trash is going. You might not have control over what’s picked up by the municipal collectors but you certainly have a measure of control when it comes to getting rid of your junk. This is why you should hire Junk King Portland job. These are professional junk haulers who make a point of steering clear of landfills whenever possible.
Junk King takes a green approach to disposal of the things it collects. Every item that goes on to the back of a Junk King truck can be considered to be recycled or donated. There are dozens of facilities and organizations throughout the area that can take on these kinds of items. You might not even know they exist but they are part of Junk King’s drop off schedule. Don’t worry about deciding what could be recycled from your stuff. The crews have been trained to handle this type of sorting and will do it automatically.
When you want your rubbish to disappear put Junk King Portland on the job. They make it happen the right way.

Would the value you think your home is worth match up with that of a professional appraiser? You’ll need that appraisal if you want to put your home on the market or refinance the mortgage.

That means you can fix a ceiling fan and add $500 even if it took just a $20 switch.
Enhance Your Curb Appeal
Walk across the street from your home and take a good look at the exterior. This is exactly how the appraiser will view your home. Anything you can do to improve your curb appeal will add value. That includes mowing the lawn, planting new flowers and touching up paint. If you have the time, then consider getting your exterior power washed.
Create a File of Improvements
You should type out all the improvements you’ve made over the years to your home. These can be minor up upgrades or major renovations. These fixes might not be obvious to you appraiser, which is why you have to point them out. You should also get a copy of any permits you obtained for any of those renovations. You can also provide a list of all the amenities in the neighborhood especially any new businesses or schools that were added since you moved in.
