The Junk Removal Glossary: Eco-Friendly Disposal in Seattle

Eco-friendly Disposal – adjective – “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.”

A lot of companies like to claim they are “green.” However, if you were to dig a little deeper into their policy, you would find that “green” doesn’t really mean all that much. Technically, a company that recycles the same kind of plastics, paper and soda cans you recycled could call themselves a green company. That’s not really going the extra mile, is it? If you want to find a company with a genuine green way of doing business than look no further than Junk King. They’ve been using an eco-friendly disposal policy since their inception and when they say they’re “green” they can back it up with amazing results.

The eco-friendly disposal policy that Junk King uses is all based on diverting as much of what they collect away from local landfills. Anything that gets dumped into a landfill can have a huge impact on the water and air around Seattle. It would be great if all the landfills could be shut down. With the help of a company like Junk King, becoming a zero-waste city is not that farfetched.

To date, Junk King’s eco-friendly disposal policy has yielded a 60% diversion rate. This has been accomplished not only through recycling junk but also donating items to charities. If a local organization can fix up a sofa or stove and put it into a home, then they’ve kept it out of the trash and that’s a very good thing!

Best of all, Junk King’s eco-friendly disposal policy is automatic. You don’t have to ask if your junk is going to be recycled; it will! You also don’t have to sort any of your items. The Junk King crews have all been trained to spot those items that can be repurposed. Keep in mind that in addition to furniture and household goods, Junk King can also recycling things like yard waste, concrete, wood, metal and even dirt.

When you’re ready for a complete junk clear out, Junk King will send over a two-man moving crew and huge truck. That’s just what you’ll need to get the job done. If an eco-friendly disposal policy is important to your junk removal task, then Junk King is the only call to make!

Getting Ready For Your Seattle Guests – Clear the Clutter

The holidays are the perfect excuse to pack your bags and go visit friends and family. Although spending time with your loved ones is the goal, it helps if the city you visit is kind of cool, like Seattle. That would mean since you live here, you’ll probably be playing host especially to those family members who haven’t had a chance to check out the Needle or Pike Place. The issue then becomes whether you’ll be ready to play host. A company like Junk King can help get you there when you hire them to clear the clutter around your home.

You might be able to do a sweep on your own to make things look less messy. However, when it comes to getting rid of the big stuff, then you definitely need to call on Junk King. Maybe it’s time to replace that old sofa bed that gives everyone a bad back. Perhaps you have to make room for an air mattress in the attic by clearing out boxes of rubbish. No matter what you want gone, the Junk King crew will make sure it is picked up in a timely fashion. The average junk removal appointment is handled by Junk King within 24 hours of the schedule call.

You should have a general sense of what you want to throw out before the crew shows up. You’ll tell the scheduler whether you’re getting rid of a few things or a “hoarders” garage load. This will help them determine if you need extra hands to get the job completed in a single appointment. That is always the goal with Junk King.

When the crew arrives at the scheduled hour, you’ll show them all the items you want removed. They’ll then present you with an estimate fee based on the volume of all those items. This is about space on the truck and not weight. If you agree to the price, it will be locked down. There won’t be any surprise fees at the end of the job. Even if you need more crewmembers and additional trucks, you’re only going to pay that estimate.

You’ll certainly feel better about inviting folks over for the holidays after Junk King has helped you clear the clutter. Make that appointment today and you’re junk can be gone by tomorrow.
