Seattle Landscaping Cleanup

Alot of restaurants in the Seattle area are going “farm fresh.” This means they buy their grocery from local growers. What was in the ground in the morning could be on your plate by dinner. You can certainly taste the fresh difference. There is nothing stopping you from getting those same taste sensations except for a little gardening.

What many Seattle residents with limited ground space are turning to is container gardening. This is where you have an assortment of pots growing all kinds of herbs and veggies. Many of these large pots are made from durable plastic which makes them easy to move and to afford. Container gardening is easy to manage as well. You’re not dealing with weeds or a lot of bending down and tilling. You grow what you need and keep it contained!

To make room for your container garden you still might have to clear out some yard debris. This could be stuff like an old grill that has seen better days or the kid’s swing set they out grew. Even overgrowth of weeds and shrubs could be trimmed away to clear a patch for your garden. All of that junk can be piled up for quick removal by Junk King Seattle.

Junk King is the Seattle based company of professional junk haulers who have made landscaping cleanup a part of their complete service package. When you hire Junk King you’ll actually be hiring two capable workers and a big truck. That’s the truck which will carry off all your yard waste. It’s the same truck that can take away anything else you want thrown out in the same trip. What shape is your garage in? Are there so many boxes in there that you can’t move around? Same for your attic? Your basement? Surely, you have much better things to do with all that wonderful space. As soon as you hire Junk King to clear it out, you can reclaim that space and turn it into a guest room, a home office or even a meditation room. Wouldn’t that be nice to come home to after a hard day at the office?

If you’re worried about paying for dumping fees or labor costs that’s not how Junk King Seattle charges. They only charge you a rate based on how much space your junk takes up on the back of their truck. If it turns out your junk takes up less space you’ll get a refund. If it takes up more space, you won’t pay any extra because the estimate is the locked down price! Give Junk King a call today and get your garden growing.

Seattle Debris Removal

Now is your chance to be heard. According to the latest government press release about a cleanup project: “The Washington Department of Ecology (Ecology) seeks public comment on an amendment to a legal agreement with the owner of the Fox Avenue Building in south Seattle near the Duwamish River, which is undergoing an environmental cleanup. The amendment to Ecology’s 2012 agreed order with Fox Avenue LLC, would make the agreement consistent with recently updated state air quality cleanup standards. The company is conducting a cleanup of soil and groundwater contamination on and around its 2.5 acre industrial property at 6900 Fox Ave. S., about a block from the Duwamish Waterway. The amendment will have no effect on the cleanup work, which is proceeding on schedule.” Aren’t you glad you can share your comments about that? Actually, any time the government takes on a project that would impact the public there is always some hearing where folks can add their two cents.

Suppose there was a hearing held to discuss the cleanup around your own home? What kind of comments would you illicit? Perhaps you’d hear things like, “Why are you holding onto that piece of junk?” Or “Don’t you want to use that room for something other than a storage locker?” Or “You’re long overdue for getting rid of this stuff.” In fact, those might all be comments you’re telling yourself.

Seattle Dirt Removal and Hauling

What happens when a mud or dirt slide occurs and blocks a road? Seattle residents who live near hillsides are all too familiar with this type of problem. Recently a slide of dirt tumbled down 55th SW blocking the access to Alki Beach. The Seattle Department of Transportation was alerted and a crew was dispatched the following day to handle the cleanup effort. Until then residents had to find a way to drive around the mess. Then there was the issue of who is going to pay for the cleanup. Is it the responsibility of the slope’s owner? Or does the city of Seattle pick up the tab because the dirt fell onto a public roadway that they’re supposed to maintain. According to officials at SDOT the question of how is going to foot the bill has not been resolved.

Do you have a dirt removal project that is unresolved as well? A pile of dirt happens because of displacement. You need to dig up something to plant or remove. The result is that dirt. But dirt can’t easily be thrown out. There are weight limits as to how much you can throw out in the weekly garbage pickup. Of course if you’re filling up your garbage can then there is no place for your trash to go. This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take on a project in your yard that will require dirt displacement. It only means you need to partner up with a proper dirt removal company and that would be Junk King of Seattle.

Don’t let the word “junk” in their title fool you. Junk King Seattle can handle just about any type of removal you throw at them including dirt, sod, shrubs, tree branches or any other type of yard waste. And it doesn’t have to be “natural” yard waste. You could have patio furniture, birdbaths, sheds or even an old hot tub you want to get rid of. That’s all good to go with Junk King on your side.

After the Junk King crew has clear out your yard you can have them remove all the other stuff from your property whether that stuff is out in the garage, down the basement or up in the attic.
