Raleigh Bulk Trash Pickup

During the recent government shutdown, a lot of federal employees in area were sent home but that didn’t mean they stopped working all together. A group from the local office of the Environmental Protection Agency volunteered their furloughed time to spruce up a local park. They pruned trees, put down mulch and picked up a bunch trash.

“I’d rather be able to go to work like everyone else. I’m just trying to take it one day at a time and be positive,” said one of the furloughed employees, Alison Davis.

Got Junk Items in Raleigh NC?

As a result of a scheduling snafu, garbage was piling up across some Raleigh neighborhoods. A few weeks ago, the trash pickup days were rescheduled for over 43,000 households across the city. This was the first major change in trash pickup days in over nine years. Clearly, the city workers needed to work out the bugs in the new schedule because when the switch was made many households were forgotten. 

Dave Close, who lives on Brooks Avenue near N.C. State University, told a local newspaper that he hadn’t, “Gotten a collection in more than two weeks when the truck finally arrived last Friday. The trash containers were inordinately full,” Close said. “It kind of looked like the sanitation workers’ strike.”

A lot of the confusion also came in households that has no idea the schedule had been changed. They were putting out trashcans days after the trucks already came through their neighborhoods. This meant the trash would continue to overflow until the next pickup. It would appear that everything got sorted out but it just goes to show you if you’ve got junk you shouldn’t wait to get it picked up by the city. Instead, you need to hire Junk King to take care of all your trash overflow.

When Junk King Raleigh is handed the task of a cleanup project they’re going to get the job done right and done fast. They get it right by dispatching a two-man crew who is capable of lifting any heavy object. If it took two movers to bring in your old sofa it’s going to take two movers to take it out again and that is just what Junk King will provide. That sofa of yours will then be loaded up onto the back of that truck. That also holds true for everything you want to toss out. Things like broken washing machines, kids furniture that they out grew and busted recliners are all perfect items for the back of a Junk King truck but you don’t have to stop there. That same Junk King crew will work around your yard picking up any kind of construction materials, old patio furniture or a rusty BBQ grill. If you want it gone, Junk King will take it away.

How much will this junk removal cost? That really depends on what you’re throwing out. That’s because Junk King is going to charge you by the amount of space your junk takes up on the truck. There will be no additional fees or hidden costs. Just one low price for all the labor, truck rental and dumping charges. Did we mention you’re not doing any of the work? If you’ve got junk then Junk King Raleigh is the only way to go.
