How To Recycle Concrete In Richmond

Richmond has a robust recycling program that is classified as “single stream.” This means all your household recyclables can go into a single can for pickup. The list of approved items are newspapers, mixed paper, aluminum cans, steel cans, aluminum foil, glass bottles and jars and narrow neck plastic bottles. Anything else is considered trash. However, there are some heavier items that can also be recycled. To accomplish that, you’ll have to hire a professional junk hauling company like Junk King.

One of the most often requested items for this type of junk removal is to recycle concrete. The average homeowner can create concrete piles when digging up an old driveway or sidewalk. Cement patios in need of repair can also require the need to recycle concrete. What Junk King provides for this type of project are a pair of strong movers who will lift those chunks of concrete and load them onto the back of their truck. You might have fun breaking up the concrete but you certainly don’t want to deal with getting those rocks off of your property. Leave that to Junk King.

Unlike other so-called junk haulers, when it comes to removing concrete Junk King is not going to charge you by the pound. You could quickly be overpriced with that approach. Instead, Junk King will assess a fee based on how much space your concrete is going to take up on the back of the Junk King truck. These blocks will be stacked in bins in order to take up the least amount of room. That means you’ll be paying the least amount of money. Before the work can begin, you’ll know exactly what it is going to cost and that price isn’t going to change. If so some reason, your concrete takes up more space on the truck, then Junk King will “eat” the different. That is the kind of price guarantee that keeps customers coming back to Junk King.

Of course, you don’t have to stick to concrete removal for your Junk King appointment. You can have that same crew load up all the rest of your unwanted items on the same truckload. This is the perfect opportunity to get your home and yard ready for the summer. Recycle concrete the safe, fast and affordable way by hiring Junk King to handle the job.

Celebrate Earth Day In Richmond With Green Junk Removal

Just in time for Earth Day, a Richmond-based utility company is harnessing the power of the sun in a big way. Dominion Virginia Power is firing up the state’s largest solar panel collection system. More than 2,000 panels have been installed on the roof of their facility. The panels will be able to produce up to 500 kilowatts of energy every day. That’s enough to power up 125 homes. That might not seem like a lot but remember this is just one building roof. The goal is that the success of this program will lead to other solar panel installations. The more solar used by the power company, the lower the rates for its customers. Solar power is also the perfect “green” kind of energy. No carbon emissions and beyond the price of the panels, solar power is always free!

You might want to consider solar energy for your home. The costs of kits have been greatly reduced. There are also added tax rebates and incentives provided by the government. You could even get to the point of selling back energy to the power company. Before setting up a solar system, it might help to get your home in order in terms of the clutter. If you’re installing panels on the roof, you’ll need to run lines down through the attic to a power cell in your home. That could prove to be a problem if your attic is full of junk. The same holds true if you want to set up the panels in your backyard. First, you’ve got to get rid of the obstructions. Junk King can help get you there.

Junk King is a company dedicated to green junk removal practices. Not only will you be clearing space for a solar panel installation but you’ll also be helping the planet by recycling your junk. That’s what Junk King pledges to do with every junk removal appointment. As an item is loaded onto the Junk King truck by the crew, they are watching out to see which of those pieces can be dropped off at a nearby recycling center. Whether you’re tossing out old furniture, appliances or e-waste it can all be recycled with the help of Junk King. Going green with junk removal is the only way Junk King operates. Put them to work for you this Earth Day!
