Sarasota Yard Waste Removal

One of the oldest continuously operating attractions in Florida can be found right here in Sarasota. That would be the Sarasota Jungle Garden. The first time these gardens were opened for the public was way back in December of 1940. Since then millions of visitors have walked the trails and delighted in the antics of the animals and marveled at the serene beauty of the lush tropical surroundings. The gardens are spread out over 10 acres of land. Among the popular features are the free roaming flamingoes and the bird and reptile shows.

The Sarasota Jungle Gardens is proud of their heritage of animal care and rescue. “Many of the animals that you will see at our attraction came to us through many sources. Some were rescued from adverse or inhumane conditions and some were donated by pet owners who could no longer care for their charges,” they write on their website. “Many of the rare and endangered exotic birds were given to us by various rescue organizations nationwide. Our native Florida Crocodiles, which are a “species of concern”, are on loan to us from the Saint Augustine Alligator Farm and a local breeder to use for educational and conservation purposes.”

If you have visitors coming from out of town this summer, you’ll probably want to take them over to the Jungle Gardens. It’s a perfect way to spend the day. Another perfect way to spend a summer day or evening is simply to relax in your own backyard. Whether you’ll be entertaining guests or just relaxing with special loved ones, you want to create an environment that is every bit as peaceful and lush as the Jungle Gardens. That can be easily accomplished with a few minor adjustments.

For instance, a water fountain can add to the serenity of any outdoor environment. This doesn’t have to be a huge fountain by merely a simple design that circulates water. A fountain can become the centerpiece of your backyard oasis. Next up you’ll need some comfortable patio furniture. One thing to keep in mind when buying patio furniture is to make sure you get pieces that are easy to move around and can be covered in a storm.

Speaking of a storm, if you had any unwelcomed debris blow into your backyard from the last bit of rain and wind then you’ll surely want to get rid of it. That can be taken care of with a team of professional junk haulers like Junk King Sarasota. The same junk haulers who you would call upon to take away the clutter in your garage or closet can also handle the task of removing yard waste. It doesn’t matter if that waste is organic or man-made: it will all fit on the back of their truck! Don’t waste another perfect Sarasota evening: get started on your yard clean up today!

Sarasota Scrap Metal Removal

Guess what the biggest target for scrap metal thieves is in Sarasota. It’s your air conditioner. A crook who can swipe an AC unit can turn around and sell that to a scrap metal operator in the hopes of making a quick score of cash. This problem has gotten so out of hand that the local sheriff’s department has taken to slapping stickers onto AC units saying: “WARNING, The Pasco Sheriff’s Office Monitors All Air Conditioning Thefts.”

You might think that a thief isn’t going to swipe an AC out of your house. Have you met a criminal lately? They’ll go to extreme measures to make a buck. Many of the homes that are targeted are the ones that have been foreclosed upon and are sitting empty. But who do you think they’re going to steal from when they get through the empty homes? To a thief, all metal is a target. That’s why you need to make sure any scrap metal you’ve got around your home or yard is carted away by professional junk haulers like Junk King Sarasota.

The goal is to remove the target. If you’ve got an old kitchen appliance sitting on your porch or some rebar left over from a remodel job that could become a target. And don’t think you’re missing out on cashing in. To make any serious money with scrap metal recycling you really need a huge amount. We’re talking truck loads. Do you really have that much scrap metal to get rid of? Probably not but the thief won’t care because they’re collecting as much as they can.

Scrap metal is also dangerous to have around especially if there are kids playing anywhere in the area. Once cut from a rust piece of metal is going to mean a trip to the ER for a tetanus shot. Not a great way to spend an afternoon! When you hire professional junk haulers like Junk King you’ll know that your scrap metal is going to be safely taken away and properly disposed of. Those same junk haulers will also be able to take away just about anything else you want to get rid of. It doesn’t just have to be what’s in your backyard but also what’s in your garage, basement or attic. If you put off your spring cleaning project then why not get it done before summer is over?

Getting rid of your junk frees up more space around your home that you can put the better use. When was the last time you actually parked your car in your garage? What about all those boxes or pieces of furniture that you pass by everyday wanting to get rid of? Now is your chance. Take full advantage of Junk King Sarasota. Start with your scrap metal and end with a clutter free home!
