Raleigh Office Cleanout and Purging the Space

We pride ourselves on being quick and efficient. What’s more, everyone on our Junk King teams is highly trained and dedicated to 100% client satisfaction. All you really need to do is tell us what you want us to throw away.

When you first take a look at the job at hand, things might seem insurmountable. This is especially true if you been in the same office space for years and busy enough that you don’t have time to do any maintenance. If that’s the case, here’s an excellent way to purge some of the materials and sort through others.

• File any important documents that haven’t been digitized before we arrive. It’s always a good idea to keep some of those paper files separate from what you’re going to throw out.

• Find a recycling bin and understand what goes into it. As far as any paperwork and files you’ve decided aren’t coming with you, most of them can be recycled. You’ll clear a path by deciding which ones go where.

Our Raleigh office cleanout department is only a click away.

Let’s start with the kids’ toys. They are probably in a box in the back of the broom closet, in the basement collecting spider webs or even still sitting in your living room. Consider transforming them into contemporary art for your home!  This article by Liz Stanly shows just how far you can go with a little paint, glue, and imagination. From army soldiers and lamps to legos and kitchenware – http://tinyurl.com/toystotreasures

Dad’s shirt! You love them almost as much as you love him! Now, you can keep them and make them as useful as when he wore them with just a few steps. We found a great tutorial by the blogger “Mama Duck” on the Ducklings in a Row blog.  She even threw a great twist in it by adding pieces like Dad’s for the baby to play with or (most likely) chew on! http://tinyurl.com/dadsshirtpillow

Hang photos or your kids’ art work? The options are endless to transform a seemingly useless frame into a fundamental piece in your home!

Raleigh Mattress Disposal

The Solid Waste Services of Raleigh offers residents a Bulky Load Collection. But there are some rules to follow. Here’s how they spell it out on their website:

“A Bulky Load at a single address is limited to four (4) cubic yards, which is equivalent to filling the bed of a standard-size pickup truck. To maintain the efficiency of our crews, please accumulate several items prior to scheduling this special collection. Yard waste, large appliances, computers and televisions are not included in Bulky Load as these items are banned from landfill disposal. Excess bags of garbage that would normally be put in the garbage cart will not be collected. No odor-causing waste will be collected. You must call ahead to schedule a Bulky Load Collection. A collection for a specific address can be scheduled no more often than every 90 days. Once your collection has been arranged, place all items at the curb as Solid Waste Services employees will not enter your yard to collect items for disposal. Items placed at curbside without scheduling ahead for a bulky load collection will not be picked up by regular garbage, recycling or yard waste collection crews, and are subject to or will be assessed administrative fees and civil penalties according to Section 7 of Raleigh City Code.”

Also take note that this service isn’t provided to anyone living in an apartment or a community that has a dumpster for their garbage collection. Kind of restrictive don’t you think? Surely, they mean well and can only do so much but they certainly don’t leave a lot of wiggle room when it comes to variables. Like suppose the junk you want to get rid of is bigger than 4 cubic yards? Does that mean you’ll have to wait another 90 days before you can get it picked up? What about that part of having to drag everything down to the curb? Yes, that works when you take out the weekly garbage but if you’re tossing out an old fridge or couch you’re not going to be able to easily get that item down to the street.

All of this should have you pointing in one direction: Junk King Raleigh. If you want to get rid of your bulky items let Junk King handle the assignment. First of all they won’t limit you as to how much you can get rid of. If you’re throwing out an entire household worth of furniture so be it. Secondly, they do all the work as in all the lifting. No matter how many stairs to climb, the Junk King Raleigh crew will handle it. Best of all, they work on your schedule. When you’re ready they’ll be ready and all it takes is a single phone call to 1-800-995-JUNK. Get junk free today!
