Getting Ready For Your Richmond Guests – Clear the Clutter

What are the most overnight guests you’ve ever had in your home? If you’ve hosted a kid’s sleepover, then it’s not unheard to have at least a half dozen young ones scurrying about. For the holidays, you’d like to make room for as many folks as possible. That’s easy around the dining room table but not so easy in the rest of the house. A spare room is easy to set up for a guest. Then there are the sofas scattered throughout your home that can be claimed by a loved one.

To make sure you’ve got room for as many guests as you want, you’ll want to bring in the helping hands from Junk King. This is the crew that will help you clear the clutter around your home no time.

The Junk Removal Glossary: Eco-Friendly Disposal in Richmond VA

Eco-friendly Disposaladjective – “getting rid of trash, rubbish, junk, debris or waste in a way that is not going to be harmful to the environment.” Synonym – “going green, green policy, carbon footprint reduction.”

There is a lot of discussion about climate change and what it might mean for the future of our environment. One thing is for sure, as the population of the country swells we need to make sure we’re doing a better job with garbage disposal. Many cities are moving towards a zero-waste goal. This would mean that all the garbage that is collected would be recycled, repurposed and reused. Nothing will end up in a landfill. Some of that garbage can actually be turned into energy when it is burned at clean facility. Obviously, it will fall to the garbage collectors to be on the front line of developing eco-friendly disposal policies. A company like Junk King has already been leading that charge since 2005.

The founders of Junk King set out to create a company that provided professional junk hauling services to homeowners and businesses. They wanted to provide a service that they couldn’t find themselves. Nearly ten years later, that idea has spread across 20 states and 60 franchises. The other founding principle was one based on responsible eco-friendly disposal. Junk King’s mandate is to divert as much junk away from landfills as possible. Here in Richmond, the Junk King crews raise to the occasion with their dedication to dropping off junk at recycling centers and charities. Yes, a donation can be considered recycling.

The way that Junk King handles their recycling program is also eco-friendly. At the depot where their trucks are staged, the crews return with their hauls to sort through it all. Pallets are created with materials that will be designated for recycling or donation. Once those pallets are full, they head off to the proper facilities. This way, Junk King isn’t wasting energy making small load drop offs.

This eco-friendly disposal policy also helps with your fee. Because Junk King recycles, they don’t have to pay the hefty dumping charges at a local landfill. Instead of passing those costs onto you, they avoid them all together. That means you’ll be able to get rid of all your junk at a very avoidable rate. If an eco-friendly disposal policy matters to you, then Junk King is the company you want to work with for your junk hauling needs.
