In some areas of the country, working out in the yard can be a pleasant and even therapeutic activity. Blue skies, a soft breeze, and mild temperatures can make mowing, raking, and clean up seem more like play than work. But when you have to do all that and your yard waste pickup, as well, in hot weather with high humidity?
Not so much.
No one really enjoys all that manual labor, along with the constant bending over, squatting, and kneeling – especially when it’s over ninety degrees out and the humidity is hovering around 80 percent!
Fortunately, even if you don’t hire a lawn maintenance crew to do it all for you while you stay inside and watch TV, you can still hand off the dirty job of yard waste pickup.
When You Live in DC, Yard Waste Pickup Doesn’t Have to Be a DIY Chore
Keep in mind that when we speak of yard waste pickup, we’re not talking about a bag of grass clippings or old leaves. If you can get it to your recycling bin or your compost bin (you’ve got one, right?), then yard waste pickup isn’t really a problem. Especially if you get your kids to do it!
But what about those times when the piles are particularly large? Or when you have far more bags than you’ll get into your green recycling bin in a month?
And what if you also have added waste items that happen to be particularly big like old fence boards, decking, broken furniture from the patio or deck, and maybe that above-ground pool you got the kids ten years ago that’s finally collapsed?
Yard waste can involve much more than grass clippings, leaves, branches, and all the bits you trimmed off the shrubs and other plants.
For many people, yard waste includes anything and everything outside of their house that needs to be picked up and hauled away. Even items like old tool sheds, hot tubs, fences, decks, gazebos, and more. If it’s junk, trash, or debris that comes from your yard, then it’s yard waste.
And picking up, loading, and hauling all of this can be a difficult and dirty job. But the good news is that you don’t have to do it yourself.
When You Call Junk King Washington DC, Yard Waste Pickup is Done for You
Keeping your lawns and outside areas clean, healthy, and safe often requires a bit more than simply mowing the grass every few weeks. In fact, it can mean cleaning and picking up trash, debris, and other yard waste that tends to accumulate throughout the summer.
With Autumn just around the corner, it makes sense to stay on top of those yard cleaning and yard waste pickup chores now while the weather is good.
To that end, we’ve put together this quick and easy checklist for yard waste disposal:
And, while weather is a real consideration when it comes to proper lawn care and being able to work outdoors comfortably, those of us in the Washington DC area don’t really have to worry about snow until almost the end of the year.
In fact, according to one source,
“The first snowfall of winter for Washington usually arrives in December, although one in four Decembers sees no snow. In rare years, November does get snow. The snow season ends most often in March. For one out of four years, Washington’s last snowfall occurs as early as February.”
And, while temperatures can be up in the low 60s throughout October, they do drop quite a bit going into November. Even a sunny day with temperatures in the mid-50s is potentially a fine day for working in the yard, assuming there’s no breeze and it’s not raining.
However, by December and especially throughout the winter, most of your yard work is on hold until the spring.
