Raleigh Treadmill and Exercise Machine Disposal

One of the biggest benefits for joining a gym is that you’re paying for the privilege of working out. That might seem odd that you have to pay to put yourself through exhaustion but it really is a perfect motivating factor. If you’re paying for the membership then you’re going to want to use that membership. This is the opposite having home exercise equipment. That’s because when you bring something in your home there is a sense that you can “get to it” whenever you can. Which is why most home treadmills and other exercise equipment end up being clothes hangers instead of places of workout.

The other problem with working out at home is all the distractions. If you live alone you’ve got a good shot at squeezing in the occasional home workout but if you’ve got a family then you can forget about that. Between the kids asking for something, pets needing attention and the hundred other things you do around the house it is simply impossible to get a work out. On the other hand if you head out to the gym you can turn off your phone and focus on the exercise.

You’re also going to get a lot of support at the gym even without a personal trainer. You’re sharing the space with other folks at all levels of body improvement. They’re not there to judge but to get in shape. If you need a little help with a machine or routine you’re sure to find plenty of willing volunteers who will offer sage advice. Then there are all the terrific classes. Hopefully, the gym you’re considering joining will have a wide range of workout classes. Often these are free with the membership so dive in an enjoy.

What you don’t need is a constant reminded of your past workout failures. That would mean finding a way to get rid of all that old exercise equipment. The best approach for that is hiring Junk King Raleigh. These are the junk removal specialists who will make short work of carting off your treadmill, weights or stationary bike. The Junk King crew gets a work out every day because they do all the lifting for you. After they load up your exercise equipment you can get them to take away any other bulky item that you’ve wanted to toss out. All you have to do is tell the JK raleigh crew what you want gone and they’ll handle the rest. Chances are they can clear out your home of all your junk in less time than it would take for your typical workout. That’s a good deal!

Raleigh Computer Monitor Recycling and Disposal

“Computer equipment contains environmentally hazardous waste and should be disposed of properly.” That’s the official word from the state of North Carolina. They have followed up that ominous talk by enacting a state law that bans TVs and computer equipment from being dumped into any landfills in North Carolina. They haven’t left the citizens high and dry when it comes to getting rid of personal e-waste. You can drop off your e-waste at a few certifies centers around Raleigh but there are restrictions.

For instance, here’s what they will accept: “laptop computers (working or broken), flat-screen LCD monitors (working), desktop computers (dual core or faster, working or broken), rechargeable batteries under 2 lbs., laptop batteries, cell phones and cell phone batteries.”

However the list of what they won’t take is a bit longer: “broken flat-screen LCD monitors, CRT monitors, TVs, desktop computers (P4 or older), printers, faxes, copiers or scanners.” What happens if you want to get rid of that stuff? To get it done right you’ll need to go off the government grid and give Junk King a call. These are the junk removal experts who won’t turn away any of your junk!

Once you embrace the concept that your e-waste can only be safely disposed of with a company like Junk King then you have two choices. Give them a call to set up a removal appointment or hold onto your stuff. The first choice is easy and makes perfect sense. The second choice is just adding to the clutter in your home. If you’re never going to use that TV or computer again why hold onto it? With Junk King Raleigh that stuff can be gone for good.

Hiring Junk King to cart off your e-waste doesn’t limit them to that specific job. They’ll be coming with a huge truck. How can you fill it up? Take a stroll down the basement or up in the attic. Is there some furniture that has seen better days? Junk King can move that out and drop it off to a charity that specializes in refurbishing sofas, chairs and tables. On that same removal appointment, Junk King can also load up anything you have in your backyard that you want to get rid of like old auto parts, a lawnmower, BBQ grill or kid’s swing set. As with your e-waste, Junk King will make sure everything that collect is gotten rid of the right way. In fact, up to 60% of all the junk collected by Junk King is recycled. When you’re ready Junk King Raleigh will be standing by to help de-clutter your home.

Raleigh Grill Disposal and Recycling

Do you know the difference between direct heat and indirect heat? If you want to step up your grilling game you should. For all practical purposes it comes down to a question of temperature and time. Direct heat grilling involves having your meat put over the flame with the lid open. This works for thin cuts of meat like fillets and kabobs that you want to cook fast. Indirect heat is better for larger pieces of meat like steak or roasts. For this the food is cooked off of the flame with the lid closed. In other words set only half of your flames going and put your meat on the side without the flame. It will take longer to cook but will definitely cook all the way through.

A few other things to keep in mind is that you should make sure all your ingredients like rubs or sauces or marinades are made before you put your meat on the grill. You also want to make sure that your raw meat is kept separate from your cooked meat. That goes for serving platters and cutting boards. As you cook on your grill you should keep an eye on temperature. All cuts of meat need different temps to cook. A meat thermometer is best but an outside thermometer attached to the grill will do the trick.

Of course, all of these enhance grilling techniques can only work if you’ve got the right grill. If not, it’s time to make the switch and Junk King Raleigh can help.

Wait! Junk King is going to help you grill? Actually, no but they will be the perfect team to get rid of that old grill, sometimes which can be hefty and dangerous to carry. The last thing you want is to have a rust bucket sitting next to a shiny new model. A grill is one of those things that can’t be thrown out or simply be put on the curb.

With Junk King that grill can be taken away quicker than it would take to cook up some burgers. While they’re at it the Junk King crew can also take away anything else you want to finally get rid of. Now is the chance to clear all the junk from your backyard like the rickety patio furniture that nobody wants to sit on or kids’ play sets that they’ve outgrown. All of those junky things can be tossed onto the back of the Junk King truck by the capable crew.

You can also get rid of any clutter from your garage, basement or attic. Make sure you’re not throwing away any treasures. As for the rest of it, give to Junk King Raleigh. They’ll know where to take it!

Raleigh Old Washing Machine and Dryer Disposal

How much drying space do you really need? That’s the question you’ll be asking when it’s time to upgrade your old dryer. Basic dryers come in a range between 25″ to 29″ as regular, wide or oversized. The big boys have 7 cubic feet drums all the way down to the mini 3 cubic feet. It might come down to the questions of where will you put your dryer and how big is your family? If you’ve got a large brood and the space you’re better off going for the bigger drum.

Another thing to look out for is a dryer with a moisture or dryness sensor. When activated, these sensors let the dryer know when your clothes are actually dry. It will then automatically shut off even if you have several minutes left in the cycle. This is going to cut back on your energy bills by a huge amount. Temperature controls are also important to help safeguard your fabrics. Low of fluffy drying cycles should be used for delicates while a high dry is perfect for everything else. How quiet do you want your dryer? If it’s next to a bedroom or the TV room it could cause problems. Ask about the noise factor and see if you can get an in store demonstration of the model.

The price of DVD and Blu Ray players are so cheap that it almost doesn’t make sense to get an extended warranty. However, you’ll be using your dryer a lot longer. That’s why it’s best to pay the extra for those warranties as long as parts and in home visits are covered.

When you’re ready to make the switch, you need to think about how you’re going to get rid of your old model. Not every delivery company offers a take away service. That’s why you’ve probably seen a lot of washing machines and dryers taking up space on people’s porches or in their garages. A terrific option for old washing machine and dryer disposal is hiring Junk King Raleigh.

You’ve probably seen one of their trucks making the rounds in Raleigh because the JK crews are extremely busy. They’re helping all kinds of folks get rid of all kinds of junk. Look at it this way; if you got something in your home that took a delivery truck to bring in then you’re clearly going to need that kind of truck to get rid of it. That’s just what you’ll be getting with Junk King Raleigh along with a dependable crew of hard workers and heavy lifters. You worry about picking out the right new machine and let Junk King handle the old machine.

Raleigh Big Debris Removal

There are big changes coming for Capital Boulevard. For anyone traveling through this section of downtown Raleigh, it’s easy to see why this area is in need for a makeover. Simply put it’s an eyesore. Given the fact that this is the gateway into our fair town it makes sense to try and spruce it up. The goal is to revamp this entire area with new bridges, parks and greenery. Right now this area is crowded with abandoned warehouses and buildings. The first phase is to buy up those buildings and tear them down. The first building to come down will be the old AMF bowling alley. All of this means there’s going to be a lot of debris removed from this area and we’re not just talking about bowling pins. There will literally be tons of construction debris removed from this area before the real work of beautifying can begin.

On a much smaller scale, you might be dealing with the same issues around your home. Is there some debris that needs to be taken away in order for you to being sprucing the place up?

Alternatives to Raleigh Dumpster Rentals

Raleigh is a great town for sports. Between all the fierce Raleigh high school rivalries and college games there is plenty for a diehard fan to enjoy on any given weekend. Nothing beats having the hometown favorite bring home a trophy. However, when the team loses a handful of rowdy fans can turn watching a good game into a violent nightmare. This brings us to the issue of dumpsters. It seems that in recent years, dumpsters have become the popular target for disgruntled sports fans that are looking to cause trouble. A few matches and a seemingly harmless dumpster becomes a flaming inferno.

Now, it’s true that if you don’t live near a stadium or sports bar your chances of having a dumpster rental set on fire diminish but that doesn’t mean they still are a target. There is something about a dumpster that seems to attract all types of unwanted persons. Some of those folks are only looking for a treasure in your trash.

Other Raleigh urbanites have taken to dumpster diving as a form of protest. They want to show how much food is wasted by dumpster diving and collecting all the cast offs. As unappetizing as that might sound, there is a lot of waste from restaurants and grocery stores who are compelled to throw out items as soon as they hit the expiration date. But that’s not something you’re really thinking about as your decide whether or not to rent a dumpster for a cleanup around your home. However, you should be thinking about who might be wandering by your home that might want to take a peek inside your dumpster. Sometimes the temptation is just too strong to pass up.

Then there are your Raleigh neighbors to think about. If you’ve ever dumped something in a construction dumpster or any other big container then you know how easy it is to take advantage of those things. How often do you get to throw out bulk items? Of course, if you rent a dumpster is should be for your trash and not the entire neighborhood’s. Is there an alternative to dumpster rental? Absolutely and that would be hiring Junk King Raleigh.

Instead of having a dumpster sitting around your property for several days, a Junk King crew can swoop in and remove everything want taken away in a single trip. No worry, no hassle and no sweat. That’s the Junk King way.

E-Waste Recycling in Raleigh

Two questions: Do you know where the closest landfill is and do you know what is banned from that landfill? Unless you live within “smelling distance” you probably have no clue where the nearest landfill is and why should you? That’s not something you have to contend with. After all, your garbage is picked up and disposed of weekly by the trusted municipal workers. However, you should know what is banned from those landfills so that you don’t inadvertently toss it out. That would be all manner of televisions and computer equipment. As of July 1st, 2011 e-waste like that was officially banned from all North Carolina landfills.

Now, those same municipal workers could possibly pick up your e-waste and dispose of it in the right way but “when” that would do that depends on “where,” as in where is your quadrant? In a system that probably makes sense only to government workers but not many others, Raleigh is divided into 4 quadrants: NW, NE, SW and SE. Each of those quadrants has a designated pickup day but in order to unlock the clues to that mystery you’ll need to make your way through the maze of city’s automated telephone answering system and schedule an appointment. You’ll also have to drag whatever you want collected down to the curb. That might be easy if you’re tossing out an old laptop but a big screen TV? How are you supposed to manage that? There is a better way and that’s with Junk King Raleigh.

Raleigh Old TV Disposal

Tis the season for a new TV. Every year the deals for brand new televisions sets get better and better. Don’t worry if you missed out on the Black Friday door busters. You might be surprised to discover that those very same deals can be yours without camping out on the sidewalk. If this will be your first journey into the wonderful world of HDTV you’ll want to take note of a few things to be on the lookout for.

HDTV stands for High Definition Television. It refers to the picture and sound quality that is going to be delivered to you in this digital age we’re living in. The minimum quality of HDTV to look for is one that has 1280 x 720 pixels. A pixel is a point of light. The more points of light, the sharper the picture. You also want to check the plug-in ports. This is where you’ll be hooking up your DVD and/or Blu-Ray player. The best option is a HDMI connection. This is a simple plug in utilizing a special cable running between the machines and it will afford you the highest quality picture and sound for your playback. Most new HDTVs come with this kind of port as standard but it’s always good to double check.

You’re also going to discover that “slim is in” when it comes to the new design of TVs. Gone are those old tube types. In fact, you might not even be able to find them in the stores! Instead, you can treat your new TV like a painting and hang it on the wall. If you prefer there are plenty of stylish stand options for the TV as well. Your new HDTV might also have to be adjusted for your picture quality preference. There are different settings that adjust the color and brightness depending on the type of program you’re watching. There might be a setting for sports, cinema or natural viewing. Try them all out to see which is going to be the perfect fit. And as long as you’re going HDTV you might as well kick in for surround sound, too! There are plenty of “Home Theater in a Box” type of systems that let you plug and play with very little set up hassle. You’re going to need some external speakers but they should all be part of that kit.

Before you take delivery on that new TV you want to make sure you clear the space by getting rid of the old box. A TV is not something you can sit outside on the curb. It has to be properly disposed of and the best way to do that is with Junk King Raleigh. They are Raleigh’s best junk removal specialists and are happy to help you get rid of the clutter in your home. You don’t have to hire them just for the TV removal. Take advantage of this big truck by getting rid of all your unwanted junk. That’s what Junk King Raleigh is all about!

Raleigh Appliance Disposal

You’re favorite shopping partner this holiday season could be a smart phone app. There are dozens of scanner apps that let you wander into a nearby Raleigh store and take a picture of a product’s UPC bar code. The app then shows you if you can get that item at a better price somewhere else. What’s great is that armed with that information, you might be able to convince the store to sell you the item at the discount price. Chances are you’ll get the deal because they want to keep you in the store. This would make you a very smart shopper indeed.

Having an app like that is great but you should also do some other research in advance of shopping especially when you’re looking for big ticket items like major kitchen appliances. One of the most common things that folks forget to do is measure the space. If you’ve got custom cabinets where a fridge slides in for a perfect fit then you want to make sure your new fridge won’t be oversized. That holds true for stoves, dishwashers, washing machines and dryers. Measure twice just to make sure.

You should consider the life of the new appliance you’re getting in terms of how long you’ll be using it. Typically, something like a fridge or stove could last five years and beyond. That’s why you should treat yourself to buy something with a few more bells and whistles. Why scrimp when you can get exactly what you want? And make sure whatever item you get that it will be EnergyStar rated. This will insure your appliance is energy efficient. With a new refrigerator this matters a lot because that’s the single item in your home which uses up the most energy. An EnergyStar ice box can bring your electric bills down significantly.

After picking the perfect new appliance, you’re going to need to get rid of that old one. If you’re not donating it then chances are it’s destined for the trash heap but you just can’t toss it out the door and be done with it.  Instead you should consider hiring Junk King Raleigh for the pickup and removal of any oversized item like a stove, fridge or dishwasher. Junk King Raleigh has the man power and truck space to cart off any large item. You don’t have to hire them for a single pickup. After they load up your old fridge, they can also help you get rid of anything else you want tossed out. This is a golden opportunity to clear out the spare room or clean out the garage to your car can park indoors again. Junk King is fast and affordable and they’re just a phone call away!
