Richmond Junk Recycling

It’s going to get easier to handle your household recycling. That’s because the city of Richmond is planning on replacing the small recycle bins with larger 95-gallon cans. This will mean a lot more room for your old soda cans, junk mail, newspapers, magazines and cardboard. By allowing residents to recycle more, the citywide program will actually be more efficient. Over the next ten years, this recycling program could yield the city around $6.5 million in added revenue and reduce carbon emissions by around 143,500 metric tons. Of course, your recycling doesn’t have to stop at the kitchen. You have an opportunity to take care of some major junk recycling when you bring in Junk King to lend a hand.

Junk King is part of a national chain of junk removal specialists who have dedicated themselves to a green way of doing business. Every junk collector has the chance to be eco-friendly, but not every junk collector embraces that concept. Junk King does and in a big way. So far, they are able to maintain a 60% diversion rate. That would be 60% of everything they collect gets diverted away from local landfills.

Junk King accomplishes this goal with a two-prong drop off strategy. First, they’ll make sure that any type of recyclable can find its way to the proper facility. This means all your metal, wood, foam, clothe and concrete could be placed at different centers. Remember, this would be for the big junk items you want to get rid of. The second option is to drop items off at a charity. Any piece of furniture or household good that can still be used could benefit a family in need. Junk King has developed some terrific working relationships with local charities for this very purpose.

Best of all, you don’t have to do any of this sorting. You don’t even have to ask for recycling. Junk King will take care of all of that automatically. The cost for all to this help is surprisingly affordable. You’ll only pay a single fee based on volume and not weight. It’s the fair approach to pricing that all the Junk King customers appreciate. Don’t forget to turn all your yard waste over to Junk King for recycling, too! Responsible junk recycling is part of the complete pickup package from Junk King.

First thing you need to do is decide exactly what you want to get rid of. Maybe over the holidays you have a chance to wade through a lot of junk as you went in search of your holiday decorations. You could have also gotten some gifts that allowed you to upgrade certain items like a television, computer or even furniture. Instead of hanging onto all that unwanted junk, turn it over to Junk King. They’re going to provide you with a capable two-man moving crew and a truck big enough to hold whatever you’re tossing out. This will be the crew that is going to do all the actual work and they mean that literally. You won’t have to lift finger to lift any object.

Once everything is loaded, the crew will sweep up after themselves and you’ll be free to get back to your day. It could take a few minutes depending on how much you’re getting rid of. When it comes to junk removal, Junk King likes to get in and out without any hassle.
