Appliance Removal In The Washington DC Area Can Be Easy

appliance removal

 

No matter where you happen to live in the Washington DC area, whether that’s in Hyattsville, Clinton, Davidsonville, Accokeek, or even Capitol Heights, you most likely own appliances.

 

And, like a law of nature, those appliances get old and eventually die and have to be gotten rid of. Which means someone must take care of the job of appliance removal. The problem is that many old appliances are large, heavy, and bulky, and moving them is not an easy task.

 

Which is why Junk King Washington DC specializes in old appliance removal.

Need Appliance Removal? Who You Gonna Call?

 

When most people think of appliances they tend to think of big items like refrigerators and washing machines. And, while this is accurate, in the world of the appliance manufacturing industry, “appliances” have a much broader definition.

 

According to one source,

 

“The home appliance industry in the United States comprises two main sectors: major and small domestic appliances. Large appliances used at home, such as refrigerators, freezers, stoves, washing machines, and dishwashers, are part of the major appliance category. Small appliances include, for example, food processors, toasters, and coffee makers.”

 

The same source noted that, in 2020, sales of major household appliances, which include refrigerators, freezers, dishwashers, washing machines, cookers, and ovens, were estimated to have reached 62.7 million units sold in the United States.

 

That’s a lot of appliances.

 

And for every one of those sold, there was quite likely an old version being replaced. That’s a lot of appliance removal!

 

The problem for most folks is that they have no convenient way of transporting a large appliance even if they managed to get it out of their house (or office) and onto the curb. Others may have a truck or large van that they could possibly use but loading a washing machine or stove isn’t a task most homeowners or office managers are capable of by themselves.

 

But even if moving and loading the appliance isn’t the problem, the fact is that most residents in and around the Washington DC area do not own a truck or large van.

 

And when you consider that the top three selling used cars in our area last year were the Honda HR-V, the Cadillac XT5, and Volkswagen Passats, you get the picture.

 

So, for most people in most locations here, going the DIY route when it comes to appliance removal is probably not a good idea. And that means you have to call somebody to take care of it for you.

Appliance Removal Comes with a Few Options

 

One of those options you really don’t want to consider is to simply haul your old appliance to a landfill. 

 

In the United States, all our trash, waste, and junk we dispose of ends up in what is called Municipal Solid Waste, or MSW. This is essentially all the waste that is generated by people in households and businesses.

 

And, while MSW is made up of all the items consumers throw away like bottles, boxes, food, and other trash, it also includes things like old computers, tires, and major appliances.

 

These appliances include refrigerators, washing machines, and dishwashers, for example, and make up a significant portion of our municipal solid waste. In fact, about 5.2 million tons of appliances were disposed of in 2017 according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), for example.

 

The EPA noted that, 

 

“Ferrous metals (steel and iron) are the predominant materials in major appliances, but different metals, plastics, glass and other materials are also present. Data on the recovery of ferrous metals from major appliances are from a survey conducted by the Steel Recycling Institute.

 

This survey estimates the recovery of ferrous metals from shredded appliances to be 3.1 million tons in 2017, leaving 2.1 million tons of appliances to be landfilled. Major appliances are not accepted at combustion facilities with energy recovery.”

 

While it appears we have been getting better at diverting old appliances away from landfills and into recycling facilities over the years since 2017, the numbers are still far lower than they could be.

 

Call us biased, but at Junk King Washington DC, we believe the most efficient and eco-friendly option is to call us for your appliance removal needs.

 

However, we understand that sometimes people in and around the Capital area still want to take care of these kinds of things on their own. So, to help facilitate that, we’ve put together this handy checklist for you:

 

The bottom line here is that, even if you can tackle your appliance removal task yourself, there’s no good reason to do so. Calling Junk King to remove and dispose of that old appliance is by far the most efficient, safest, and cost-effective option.

How To Take Care Of Computer Recycling And TV Recycling In DC

Junk King Washington DC

 

People have had personal computers in their homes for almost four decades now. First there were the massive desktop workstations with huge CPU towers and a bulky monitor. Usually in some attractive shade of beige. By the mid-1990s it was estimated that almost 35 percent of US households owned a computer.

 

Of course, everyone had a TV, too. Maybe several. 

 

Televisions began popping up in homes as early as the 1940s. While there were 350,000 TV sets in the US by 1948, by the end of 1952, TVs could be found in 20 million households across America. And, in 1993, 98 percent of households owned at least one TV, with 64 percent owning two or more TVs.

 

The problem with all these older computers and televisions, especially prior to flat screen monitors and screens, is that they ended up in the trash eventually.

The Problem with CRTs – Computer Recycling and TV Recycling Issues

 

It wasn’t until about the mid-2000s that CRT, or cathode ray tube, television sets and computer monitors began to cease being produced. In fact, these heavy, bulky devices used to be all that we knew when it came to TV and computer screens. 

 

Today they have become a collector’s item.

 

And a toxic waste hazard when they are disposed of improperly. 

 

According to an online story from a major network,

 

“Toxic glass from old-style television sets and computer monitors could end up polluting landfills if new uses for them are not found soon, scientists warn.

 

Open up an old TV and you’ll find a funnel-shaped device known as a cathode ray tube. These tubes, which are the inspiration for the term “boob tube,” are going the way of the floppy disk as plasma screen TVs and computer monitors replace older, boxier models.

 

Cathode ray tubes, or CRTs, are made of heavy leaded glass, which is used to block harmful X-rays produced by the tube’s cathode ray guns. The leaded glass is categorized as hazardous waste in Europe and most of America.”

 

That was back in 2010. Today, the problem still exists because of the sheer number of old TV sets and computer monitors that are still out there in bedrooms, dens, back offices, garages, and elsewhere. 

 

The problem with those millions of cathode ray tubes that are still around is a toxic issue known as lead. 

 

Because these old TV sets and computer monitors built with what are now aging CRTs inside of them have toxic levels of lead in the glass funnel of those cathode ray tubes. How much lead? It turns out that the larger CRTs can house up to five pounds of lead.

 

Even though this material is safely encased in the glass tube, if this container is broken it can present a health hazard. And old sets that are tossed (illegally) into household trash and then enter the municipal waste stream run the very real risk of being broken.

 

And even today this is a very real problem with the old TVs and monitors simply because there are so many of them still out there! 

 

One report commissioned by the EPA in 2011 estimated that over 580 million CRT televisions had been sold in the US since 1980. And that’s not counting all the CRT computer monitors sold in the same time period.

 

The same report also noted that the average CRT was used for 11 years but kept in storage long after that. 

 

Fortunately for everyone, including those of us living in the Washington DC area where computers and TVs are found in abundance, it’s not all dire doom and gloom. 

 

In fact, the good news is that these old units can still be safely processed and disposed of using eco-friendly processes. But it’s also important to keep in mind that there are rules to follow when disposing of them.

 

And that’s critical since these old CRTs contain toxic metals that could leach into a dump site. Consequently, today there are 18 states that specifically ban them from landfills.

 

For example, CRTs are “Mandatory Recyclables” in the state of Maryland (unlike Virginia!)

 

e-waste recycling

 

Simple Steps for Secure Disposal of Computers and TVs

 

While your old CRT computer monitor won’t have any data in it, your old CPU and hard drive will. And that old desktop (or laptop) computer should be cleaned of all personal data and information before disposal.

 

Computer Disposal

 

And what about that old TV? Certainly, it won’t require anything more than simply being loaded on a junk removal truck or taken to a proper recycling facility. 

 

Right?

 

Not so much. There are a few steps that should be taken with these old devices, as well.

 

CRT TV Disposal

 

With a bit of effort on your part, e-waste recyclers can help to ensure that your old computer monitors, CRT television sets, and other related electronic waste items are properly and safely dismantled and recycled.

An Unlikely Hot Topic: Old Mattress Removal

Remember the good old days when you slept on the same mattress for what felt like decades? You only bought a new one when the dips in your mattress made it too hard to get out of bed, or the broken springs got so bad they hurt.

And, for those who aren’t old enough to remember those hardy mattress products, you might still know what it’s like to be stuck with the same mattress you had in grade school. 

Eventually, however, we have to get rid of that old mattress and replace it with a new one. 

But sleeping on an old, broken-down mattress was nothing compared to the task of old mattress removal!

Yes, It’s My Truck and, No, I Won’t Haul Your Mattress

While it has certainly been done, transporting a mattress on top of the family care is not a good idea. Aside from the work involved hefting it up there and then trying to secure it with whatever rope or old clothesline you happen to have on hand, it’s just not very safe.

But without a full-size pickup truck, mattress removal is a daunting task.

In fact, there are really only two options and the first one – hauling it yourself – requires access to a truck. Plus, you have to have a place to take it to.

The second option is to have someone else take it for you. And, as you might imagine, that’s the option we highly recommend at Junk King Washington DC. We have the trucks and, yes, we WILL haul your mattress. In fact, we specialize in mattress removal

However, you might be surprised to know that we won’t take your old mattress to the dump.

Virginia has roughly 60 solid waste landfills still in operation, according to the website VirginiaPlaces.org, and the EPA counts 74, but breaks it down to only 28 landfills with current plans to expand. The other 46 are either close to being full or have been slated to close soon. 

So, in a region that boasts a population of close to 6.5 million people in the Washington DC Metro area, one has to imagine that there are going to be a few used mattresses that need to be removed and taken somewhere!

And if you were thinking it’s someplace other than a landfill, you’re getting warm – really warm.

 

Not Your Grandmother’s Incinerator

Enter Waste-to-Energy combustion.

The advent of technologically advanced furnaces that can efficiently and safely reduce solid waste to reusable ash has radically altered the waste disposal landscape.

As one of the leaders of this field describes it,

“These modern facilities divert waste from landfills to generate energy from the combustion of municipal solid waste. Our Waste-to-Energy facilities are designed to convert the waste that remains after recycling into electricity for homes and businesses and/or steam for export to industries.”

Using high-tech furnaces, companies like Covanta produce steam from the combustion process which then generates electricity. And their facilities generate enough electricity right now to power 1,000,000 homes 24 hours a day, seven days a week, while reducing the amount of greenhouse gases by over 20 million tons.

But let’s bring this out of the realm of “Big Picture” statistics and closer to home. Like Fairfax County, for example.

Covanta’s I-95 Energy/Resource Recovery Facility, where we take old mattresses, by the way, has an impressive list of statistics of their own:

  • Every year, our facility processes more than 1,120,000 tons of waste that would otherwise have ended up in landfills.
  • Less waste in landfills reduces greenhouse gas emissions by 1,220,000 tons of CO2. That’s like taking 236,000 passenger vehicles off the road for one year.
  • We use waste to produce 80 megawatts of electricity 24/7 – enough to power 62,000 homes for a year.
  • We also recover 39,700 tons of metal for recycling annually – enough to build 29,000 cars.

Oh, and all the ash that results from combustion is processed to recover metal for recycling, while all gases are collected, filtered, and scrubbed – or cleaned – before being released safely into the atmosphere.

Junk King Washington DC, Mattress Removal, and Waste-to-Energy – How It Works

At Junk King Washington DC we collect large numbers of old mattresses through our mattress removal process. These are staged at our Junk King warehouse and then transported in bulk to the I-95 Energy/Resource Recovery Facility in Lorton, Virginia located on the aptly named Furnace Road.

Once our old mattresses are delivered, they are strategically placed on the floor approaching the entry to the furnace. By holding these mattresses in place with the blade of their bulldozers, employees at the facility guide them across the floor, using them like “giant squeegees” to clean the floor before being pushed into the furnace. 

The combustion furnaces reach temperatures close to 2000 degrees Fahrenheit, superheating water, which is then turned into steam and pumped into the turbine generators. 

And, once we collect another load of old mattresses, we take them to Furnace Road, drop them off and the cycle repeats.

Oh, and back to the ash.

Solid waste can be practically vaporized by these furnaces, but there is still a residue of ash remaining. In the past, this relatively benign by-product was reluctantly sent to landfills. 

However, a newly developed ash processing system takes the ash from Waste-to-Energy facilities and further separates it into its component parts

As the Lorton facility’s website explains

“The result is small metal fractions that can be recycled, and aggregate that can be reused in construction material, such as hot-mix asphalt for roads and parking lots and concrete for commercial use. Most importantly, the process can reduce the amount of ash needing disposal in landfills by as much as 65 percent.”

In addition, with the help of our team at Junk King Washington DC, hundreds of mattresses that would otherwise likely end up in landfills, as well, are essentially turned into electricity to power local homes.

Waste-to-Energy Mattress Removal: Just One More Reason to Call Junk King

The eco-friendly corporate mission of Junk King is to make sure as much junk as possible is either recycled or donated. As a result, Junk King is the only national company that operates with the goal of recycling 60 percent or more of every job by using local sorting facilities.

And Junk King Washington DC is proud to be a part of the greenest junk removal operation in North America.

This is why every junk removal load we pick up, no matter how large or how small, is sorted for various types of materials in our recycling warehouses such as metals, plastics, wood, glass, textiles, and reusable items.

And for mattresses to be turned into energy!

Another reason for choosing Junk King Washington DC is that we have the best pricing in our industry. And we also provide fair and transparent pricing. 

“Fair and transparent” simply means that our low minimums are clearly noted, and there are no hidden fees or “extra” charges added to our estimates. All of this means that you can trust Junk King Washington DC to charge you a fair price for your junk removal and you’ll never be unpleasantly surprised with a higher price once the job is done.

5 Criteria For Choosing Your Junk Removal Service In DC

“Benjamin Franklin said there were only two things certain in life: death and taxes. But I’d like to add a third certainty: trash.” – Ruth Ann Minner, 72nd Governor of Delaware

Junk is a fact of life.

It is an inescapable reality of being human and living on the planet. We produce trash in a wide variety of ways and forms. Some of it is what we typically refer to as “garbage” which usually ends up in the waste stream. But some of it we tend to categorize as “junk.”

Interestingly, trash is as old as human existence – and holds great value for scientists, as well.

According to a story from CNN,

“Studying ancient trash from around the world gives archaeologists and historians the chance to understand the habits that defined people’s daily lives, said Dr. Richard Meadow, Director of the Peabody Museum’s Zooarchaeology Laboratory and Senior Lecturer on Anthropology at Harvard University.

It may not be glamorous but, he said, “much of what archaeology knows about the past comes from trash, if trash is defined as the products of human consumption. Trash is a proxy for human behavior.’”

It’s not likely that anyone will be studying our junk anytime soon, and most of it is unwanted and just needs to be removed and gotten rid of. 

But how do you choose the right junk removal service here in DC?

Five Criteria for Choosing the Right Junk Removal Service

The truth is that almost anyone with a truck can pick up junk and dump it somewhere. That doesn’t mean it’s exactly legal or that it will be done properly. And there are plenty of professional junk removal services out there, as well.

However, finding a professional and reliable firm that is the right service for you to take care of your junk removal the right way is critical. Why? Because not all services do it right.

So, how can you know which junk removal service to choose?

Here are five key criteria for choosing the best junk removal service in the DC area:

They are a Locally Owned Company

Some folks might argue that a big, corporate entity with multiple branches can deliver the best service because they’re, well, big! But locally owned and operated businesses have much more at stake. They need to build and maintain the goodwill of their customer base and their community.

In addition, when it comes to a service like junk removal, having a local firm makes a huge difference in the quality of service you can receive. They know your neighborhoods, know your city and county, and are familiar with the various facilities and local agencies that are instrumental in an effective junk disposal process. 

The Company is Fully Licensed and Insured

Many municipalities require various types of waste removal licenses for firms to operate as a legitimate junk removal service. In addition, when you have a company come to your home or place of work and remove junk on your property there are potential liability issues. This is why being both licensed and insured is an important criteria for you.

They Have Professionally Trained Staff

While some people may view junk removal as an unskilled task, professionally trained haulers know how to make sure your home or office walls, floors, ceilings, and doors remain safe during junk removal activities.

In addition to making sure that your property remains undamaged, they know how to best prioritize and effectively load your junk. And if any type of dismantling is required, they will have the skills to take care of that, as well. 

Touchless Junk Removal is Offered

After the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, it became essential for businesses as well as individuals to practice social distancing. In addition, services like junk removal – which are considered essential businesses – should have made it a number one priority to follow guidelines from the CDC and WHO when providing junk removal services.

While the overall coronavirus situation appears to be improving and various restrictions are loosening, any conscientious face-to-face service business will still opt for touchless practices whenever possible.

They are Environmentally Responsible

We only have one planet, and each of us shares a responsibility to protect and preserve it. This is why we believe that any commendable junk removal service is one that makes environmentally responsible and eco-friendly disposal practices a major tenet of their corporate mission and operations.

This means practices such as using larger trucks to reduce overall hauling trips, having fleets of trucks that make use of biodiesel fuels when possible, and making it a priority to donate or recycle as much of all the materials they remove, for each and every job. 

Of course, we are not shy about saying that Junk King Washington DC meets all these criteria and more! Whether it’s junk removal for your home or for your place of work, Junk King is your number one and local junk removal service in the Washington DC area.

 

full service junk removal


Providing Fair and Transparent Pricing – A ‘Bonus’ Criteria for Choosing

In addition to these important criteria, it’s just as important that you always get the best pricing for junk removal in your area, as well.

The right junk removal service will always be able to provide you with a free estimate before you make the decision to hire them. And the final quote should be the actual price you pay – that means no hidden fees or undisclosed charges. 

In addition, the most equitable and fair pricing method is to charge you only by the amount of space your junk takes up in the removal truck. That means the junk removal service that only charges a flat fee or, worse, charges by the weight of your junk load is not going to be the most cost-effective or fair provider for you.

The good news is that, at Junk King Washington DC, we never have hidden fees or extra charges, and we only charge you for the amount of space your junk takes up in our truck. We also provide free estimates before taking on any job. 

Best of all, we guarantee to beat any written estimate from any comparable operator. This simply means another junk removal service that is also licensed, insured, and operates a fully recycling-based business like Junk King.

And speaking of free estimates, we also give you four different ways to get one!

  • An On-site Estimate – This is the best and most accurate way for us to assess the job and offer you the lowest price by providing you with a free, no-obligation on-site estimate.
  • You Can Call Us at 888-888-JUNK or live chat with our highly trained customer service representatives.
  • You Can Text Us with a photo of your items at 737-888-5865, and we will text you back with an estimate.
  • An Online Estimate is also available by clicking the “Pricing” tab in the navigation above, scrolling to Pricing Estimator, entering your zip code, and choosing “By List Item” or “By Truckload.”

Like we said, getting a free estimate with Junk King is, well, easy-peasy!

Junk Hauling For Office Relocation In The Washington DC Region

office cleanouts washington dc

Office relocation is a common event in the Washington DC area. Agencies, organizations, and businesses are constantly moving to better locations, larger facilities, or – in some cases – smaller offices. 

However, while many moves are somewhat sudden and urgent, relocating to a new office or building should ideally be planned well in advance. And although an office relocation is sometimes unavoidable, it is often an exciting new chapter in the growth of a business.

But the not-so-exciting reality of moving your office space with all its supplies, equipment, files, and office furniture is that it can be an almost overwhelming task. In fact, it is no surprise that many businesses hire moving firms for that.

Except for the junk, that is. That’s a job the moving company doesn’t do.

Office Relocation and Junk Hauling: Doing It the Smart Way

While hiring a firm to plan and execute an office relocation may be considered a smart business move, there are vast numbers of smaller shops and businesses who have no choice but to manage it themselves.

Although this is a project that can certainly be done “in-house”, the smart way still requires some detailed planning.

If there are multiple offices involved and huge amounts of moving boxes, large furniture, and office equipment to be packed and moved, a planning checklist can be incredibly helpful.

And even though you have to manage the office relocation yourself, there are still certain tasks that should be outsourced, all of your commercial junk hauling needs, for example. This type of work is quite different from packing and moving office furniture and banker’s boxes and involves a different set of logistics, as well.

The “smart way” to manage the junk hauling – because there is always junk left behind that needs to be gotten rid of – is to choose the right firm for your office relocation junk removal.

Choosing the Right Firm for Your Office Relocation Junk Removal

Any junk removal firm can pick up junk and dump it somewhere. However, finding a professional and reliable firm to take care of your junk removal the right way is important. That’s because not every company does it right.

Junk King Washington DC is your best choice for junk removal during office relocations. How do we know this? Here are a few key reasons: 

  • Licensed and Insured – This is important since when you have junk removal occurring on your property. If someone is hurt or something is damaged during that time, you don’t want to be liable.
  • Professionally Trained – As professionally trained haulers, we make sure your office walls and door jambs are safe during our junk removal activities, and that your property remains undamaged.
  • Touchless Junk Removal – Due to COVID-19, we make this our number one priority by practicing social distancing and following guidelines from the CDC and WHO when providing junk removal services.
  • Locally Owned – Junk King Washington DC is part of a nationally recognized company but we are locally owned and operated. We don’t just serve customers – we serve friends and neighbors.

Junk King Washington DC: Green Junk Hauling for Office Relocation

All junk doesn’t have to go in landfills.

E-Waste Removal Services in Washington DC

e-waste removal services washington dc

Have ever looked around when you’re out in public and thought that just about everyone seems to own a cell phone? And, if you have to commute in or near the greater Washington DC area, you probably notice that there are also multitudes of laptops and tablets out there, too. When people upgrade and replace their existing electronics, they will need to dispose of their old electronics. An e-waste removal service is critical to ensure these items are properly disposed of, especially if you are a business.

According to Wikipedia

“The Washington D.C. metropolitan area is one of the most educated and most affluent metropolitan areas in the US. The metro area anchors the southern end of the densely populated Northeast megalopolis with an estimated total population of 6,216,589 as of the 2017 U.S. Census Bureau estimate, making it the sixth-largest metropolitan area in the nation.”

And the Pew Research Center adds that the vast majority of Americans – 96 percent – now own a cellphone of some kind.

“Along with mobile phones, Americans own a range of other information devices. Nearly three-quarters of U.S. adults now own desktop or laptop computers, while roughly half now own tablet computers and roughly half own e-reader devices.”

So, what happens to all these electronic devices when they stop working or become outdated?

Not to mention the wide variety of other electronics in our homes, offices, schools, hospitals, and other places – all the items that are known as “e-waste” or electronic waste when disposed of. And we continue to generate record numbers of tons of the stuff!

A report on global e-waste disposal from last year revealed that the year 2019 set a record for the amount of e-waste generated worldwide. It was determined that 53.6 million metric tons of discarded phones, computers, appliances, and other gadgets were disposed of in some form or another. 

Unfortunately, it was also found that only 17 percent of that e-waste was known to have been recycled. The vast majority of it – 83 percent – was either sent to a landfill, incinerated, or shipped somewhere to illegal international e-waste dumping grounds.

What Are You Supposed to Do with E-Waste?

You may be wondering what’s so special about waste electronic items, or e-waste? Aren’t they just collections of plastic, glass, and metal?

Those are fair questions since, on the surface, most electronic devices and components seem to be harmless. Why not just throw them in the garbage? The fact is that, before they are disposed of, most all electronics are harmless. 

According to one source,

“The EPA (federal Environmental Protection Agency) has dumped electronic waste into a special category of materials dubbed ‘universal waste‘. The category includes any material that would usually be deemed hazardous waste, but presently the hazardous substances are contained within and pose no immediate threat.”

However, once those e-waste items end up in a landfill, their status changes.

“Universal waste is considered hazardous once electronics disposal has been carried out, and particularly so if the final disposition ends up in a landfill. What happens when electronic gadgets (from batteries to phones to computers and more) sit in a landfill for a prolonged period of time is that the chemicals in them start seeping into the ground and water resources.”

These chemicals include mercury, lead, and dioxins. And, depending on the component, there can be a mixture of other hazardous waste products such as arsenic, beryllium, cadmium, selenium, and PCBs.

All these by-products of e-waste can have toxic or corrosive effects on living things, such as humans, animals, and plants. 

Because of this, depending on where you live, throwing away your electronics might be illegal. Take California, Illinois, New York, and North Carolina, for example – these are states that have added electronics to the list of items that are banned from going into landfills.

As of a few years ago, 25 states and Washington DC had electronics recycling laws, most of which are producer responsibility statutes.

For District residents, ZeroWaste DC notes that,

“HHW (household hazardous waste) should not be put in trash or recycling containers for DPW to collect, nor should they be included with items for bulk trash collection.”

While there are options provided by some municipal agencies for e-waste drop-off days, you still have to do the hauling and dropping off, and only on the days and times dictated by the public works agency. 

If only there were a more flexible, convenient, and reliable option for e-waste removal services in Washington DC and the surrounding area.

Good news! You can take care of your e-waste removal with one call to Junk King Washington DC.

Trusting The Right Company With Junk Removal In The Washington DC Region

trusting the right junk removal company in washington dc

Junk removal can seem to be a fairly simple and straightforward process. Until it isn’t.

Not everyone can dispose of their own junk. It takes time, effort, and a suitable vehicle. And you have to know what can be disposed of at local waste transfer stations or landfills – and what cannot. 

Oh, and did we mention a suitable vehicle?

And it’s just as true for residents in the Capital region as it is for people throughout the country – sometimes getting rid of junk requires calling a junk removal company. But how can you know which one to trust for the job?

Ready To Book? Click & Save $20!
Getting Rid of Junk Can’t be That Hard, Right?

Dumping junk somewhere might be easy. Doing junk removal the right way is quite a bit more involved. And not everyone does it right.

So, how can you know you can trust a company to do it right? There are a few key things to look for: 

Licensed and Insured

This is important since you may have junk removal personnel in your home and on your property for a junk removal job. If someone was hurt or your home damaged during the execution of the job, you don’t want to be liable. It also means that the firm is a legitimate business and not just “some guy with a truck.”

Professionally Trained

If you want to be sure your walls and door jambs are safe from junk removal activities, and that your fence gates or garage doors remain undamaged, professionally trained haulers are best. Along with safe and efficient removal and hauling, a well-trained hauling team will also be able to answer questions and provide exceptional customer service.

Large, Clean Trucks

While it may seem merely “cosmetic”, a clean vehicle is a sign of a professional company that cares about its image. And it’s a good sign that it cares about doing things right. The larger capacity also means they can haul more with fewer trips, which is great for you and the planet.

Touchless Junk Removal

In this time of uncertainty, it is important to do everything we can to ensure the health and safety of our family, friends, neighbors, and coworkers. Because of COVID-19, the right company will make this their number one priority. This means practicing social distancing and following guidelines from the CDC and WHO, even when it comes to providing junk removal services.

Locally Owned

Some firms are part of a nation-wide network of locations that are simply managed by employees. Others, like Junk King Washington DC, belong to a nationally recognized company but are locally owned and operated. We don’t just serve customers – we serve friends and neighbors.

Specialize In Junk Removal

Sure, you can sometimes hire a moving company or handyman to haul your junk. But you will never get the service, expertise, know-how, and pricing options that you can with a company that does junk removal – and only junk removal. You wouldn’t hire a gardener to cut your hair, so why hire someone that’s not a junk removal expert to do your junk removal?

Green Disposal

Your junk certainly shouldn’t be dumped into a ditch or empty field somewhere! But, everything doesn’t have to go to a landfill either. In fact, up to 80 percent or more of the typical junk items disposed of can be recycled. And some items can do irreparable environmental damage if they end up buried in landfills. Green junk disposal practices are a hallmark of the right company. 

Transparent Pricing

These means, among other things, low minimums that are clearly noted, and no hidden fees or “extra” charge added to estimates. You can trust the right company to charge you fair prices for your junk removal and not surprise you with a higher price once the job is done.

 We know that you have choices when it comes to hiring a junk removal company here in the Washington DC area. And we know that you have far more important things to worry about than getting rid of old, unwanted junk items. This is why, at Junk King Washington DC, we work hard to be the most efficient, reliable, and best-priced junk removal company in the DC area. 

In other words, you can trust us to be the right company for junk removal.

Junk King Washington DC for GSA Service Contracts: Trust, Value, and Performance

All organizations, facilities, and offices generate junk. Even if your department or agency is of a largely administrative nature, just being in existence for a long period of time inevitably results in an accumulation of waste, debris, and unwanted junk.

And, whether that’s old office furniture or equipment that is no longer needed or being used or large amounts of trash and debris that has piled up, it all must be properly removed and disposed of somehow.

If your work function is of the type that requires materials to be removed and transported to a waste management facility or recycling center on a regular basis, you may already have the infrastructure and process for accomplishing this.

However, it is far more likely that you or your staff are not carrying out that type of kind of work regularly, if ever.

This is why it is far more efficient to set up a GSA Blanket Purchase Agreement or Standing Work Order, as needed for commercial junk removal services.

Junk King Washington DC is the leading local business and commercial junk removal service in the greater Capital region, and we offer the highest quality of service with competitive pricing options for your materials and waste recycling and disposal service needs.

Junk King is one of the largest junk removal companies in the nation and our scope of work falls under the SIN 899-5, which designates “Materials and Waste Recycling and Disposal Services.” Our GSA Professional Services Schedule contract services encompass waste collection, transportation, and disposal.

Junk King Is Here To Help With Property Cleanouts In The Greater Washington DC Area

property cleanouts and junk removal in washington dcIf you are a real estate professional or work with the real estate industry, you already know that a property must be clean before it can be sold or leased. And the work of property cleanouts isn’t something most people enjoy taking on. 

But it’s work that still has to be done. 

Property Cleanouts Can Be Tedious. And Hard.

While the majority of rental or lease properties are relatively clean once they’ve been vacated, there is still the routine surface cleaning and occasional repairs and maintenance that needs to be done. This is typically true for previously owned properties, as well. Usually, this work can be handled most efficiently by a professional custodial firm or cleaning company.

However, there are also times when a property has been vacated – or abandoned – and the previous tenants or owners have left behind excessive amounts of old furniture, appliances, equipment, and even personal belongings, not to mention garbage and other trash. 

These conditions are often beyond the scope of a cleaning company. And this means that someone has to come in and load up all the junk and debris, haul it away, and properly dispose of it all. 

That “someone” is often the landlord, property manager, or real estate professional responsible for the sale, rental, or leasing of the property. And, while these people are professionals at what they do, they are not likely trained or equipped for the task of junk removal.

The good news is that property cleanouts do not have to be a “do-it-yourself” project, which is great if you’re a busy real estate professional.  If you live or work in and near the Washington DC area, a solid team of professional property cleanout and junk removal experts are available to do it for you.

Property Cleanouts: There’s No Place Like Home – Until You Leave It

People move. Businesses move. Everybody moves at some point, it seems, and for a variety of reasons. Businesses, for example, lose their lease on a building or find a larger one, or one in a better location, and they relocate.

Sometimes the property is a vacation rental, business suite, or even rented condominiums and apartments. When people move, they don’t always take everything with them and whatever is left behind needs to be cleaned out and disposed of.

But some of the saddest reasons for property cleanouts are estate cleanouts and foreclosure cleanouts.

Oftentimes, when older homeowners pass away, there isn’t anyone to take possession of all the household belongings. Perhaps there is an estate sale, but not everything gets sold and the remaining furniture, clothing, appliances, and other items left behind need to be cleared out and disposed of. 

Foreclosures are unfortunate though perhaps not as tragic as loved ones passing away. But the emotional turmoil that accompanies being forced to leave your home can be devastating. Perhaps because of this, it’s not uncommon for prior residents to feel they have little or no incentive to leave their foreclosed home in a salable condition when they leave the property.

And too often these former homeowners leave the house without cleaning it and with piles of trash, debris, and abandoned belongings left behind.

Real estate professionals know that working with REOs and foreclosed properties often means that the task of junk removal falls to them or some other representative of the bank or finance company that now holds the property.

The good news in light of all these scenarios is that Junk King Washington DC is your best choice when faced with a daunting property cleanout.

One of the realities of life in the Washington DC area is that people are constantly on the move.

In fact, according to the Census Bureau, in the United States as a whole, almost 13 percent of renters move annually. The average homeowner moves almost every seven years in the U.S. and for any number of reasons.

And, too often, these vacated properties cannot be leased again or put on the market until the junk is removed and the property is cleaned.

Every day that a rental property sits unoccupied and full of junk is time that goes by without collecting rent. And every day that a house or office suite sits empty, waiting to be cleaned out, is one more day before it can be put on the market.

Not Just “Junk Removal” – Green Property Cleanouts and Junk King Washington DC

Being green is an integral part of the Junk King Washington DC mission and it means that we are committed to keeping as much junk and debris out of landfills as possible.

Junk King’s environmentally friendly corporate mission to make sure as much junk gets recycled or donated as possible.

Junk Hauling For Office Relocation And Downsizing

office relocation and business downsizing

If you are a business owner or manager, and you need to get rid of junk because of a move, you’re not alone. Businesses frequently relocate for larger facilities or better locations. And, at times, they also need to downsize.

Like many other regions throughout the nation, Washington DC and other cities in the Capitol area have been hard hit by COVID-19. And that includes businesses and organizations.

Along with the lives that have been lost and the livelihoods that have been and are being disrupted, untold thousands of smaller businesses are struggling with many of them even closing across almost every industry.

Unfortunately, this too often results in relocations and downsizing, which often means junk removal that has to happen.

The Business of Business Junk Removal

Fortunately, the reasons for relocating are not always negative, and even downsizing can often be done for good reasons. As businesses grow and sometimes pivot or change to meet new demands, they often need different facilities or locations.

And whatever the reason, business, and office junk removal and disposal is an essential business since it provides a valuable service.

And, for business customers in the greater Washington DC area, this is no exception.

So, how often do businesses move? A survey done by office rental agency Knotel had these results,
At Junk King Washington DC, we provide a wide variety of junk removal services for our neighbors, including Alexandria, Springdale, and the Capital area. 

We’re committed to providing world-class service to our customers, both commercial and residential, and are proud to be an essential part of our business community. As Co-owner Alex Powers noted,

“I’ve enjoyed being a part of our location’s growth throughout the years and I’m looking forward to expanding our operations to D.C. and offering the community full access to our junk removal services, recycling practices, and strong customer service.” 

However, as much as we love what we do, we also know that, sometimes, junk removal tasks are required because of unfortunate circumstances.

And a business downsizing or closure is one of the most unfortunate.

The Essential Role of Businesses In the U.S.

We’re all probably familiar with the big-name retailers and other corporate giants in America. But, despite their lion’s share of media attention and notoriety, the “big boys” of the business world in the U.S. are only the tip of the business iceberg, so to speak.

The reality is that the vast majority of businesses in America actually fall under the umbrella of “small businesses.”

In fact, according to the Small Business Administration (SBA), small businesses make up over 99 percent of all employers in the U.S. and provide almost 65 percent of net new private-sector jobs, almost 50 percent of all private-sector employment, and just under 43 percent of the private-sector payroll.

In other words, small businesses are the economic backbone of our nation and the massive engine that drives our markets and economy. 

So, the loss of small businesses in the Washington DC area, in Virginia or Maryland, or anywhere else in the country, is a significant loss to their owners, their employees, and the communities and economies that were supported by those businesses. 

As a local, small business ourselves, we understand this and that’s why we also understand that junk hauling for a business downsizing or closure cleanouts due to the economic fallout of COVID-19 is distressing for everyone involved.

However, we also understand that it is still a privilege to be able to provide a much-needed service to business owners in our local area, despite the reasons or circumstances.

Office Junk Removal Service for Washington DC

Whether your office relocation or downsizing is simply an economic decision, a move to take advantage of new opportunities, or you must close down your business because of the economic impact of the coronavirus, you’ll need to get rid of your old office or shop equipment, broken or unwanted office furniture, and other junk that can’t be used or sold.

And this is almost always a task that is far easier said than done! 

Disposing of office furniture, fixtures, and equipment can be far more work and trouble than most business owners want to deal with. And, in fact, for most businesses there are just two options for taking care of large junk or debris hauling projects – you either do it yourself or you have to pay someone to do it for you.

This is the type of junk and debris removal situation where you aren’t going to be able to simply expect your municipal waste management company to take care of it all. Even if you have some industrial-sized debris dumpsters on or near your facility, your junk items may be too large, or you simply have too much.

The good news is that, when you call in a professional firm like Junk King Washington DC, we can do all the heavy lifting and we’ll haul it all away for you quickly and efficiently. In fact, when you choose to work with a reliable and expert business junk removal service for your relocation or downsizing, you’re making the smart choice.

And hiring Junk King is also smart because there’s really no easy way to properly dispose of all that junk yourself!

The best part is, when you work with Junk King Washington DC, you can know that everything you toss out isn’t going to end up in a landfill or waste incineration plant. We work hard to ensure that old furniture items that are in good condition are either donated or sent to a recycling facility.

This way, you know that your old furniture will be disposed of with our green and environmentally friendly process.

Office Relocation and Downsizing Means Office Junk Removal

Every business owner and manager understands every decision that involves expenditures has to be considered from a budget and cost-efficiency perspective. And old workplace junk removal is no exception. That’s because loading, hauling and disposing of all that unusable, unneeded, and unwanted equipment, furniture, and office junk will involve some expense.

Unfortunately, too many business owners often think that the least expensive option is to do it themselves.

However, as unintuitive as it may seem, it’s often far more cost-effective to outsource it to a local junk removal firm, like Junk King Washington DC. If you choose to use your own employees to do it for you, you’re actually paying them to do work they were not hired to do, and taking them away from the work they should be doing. 

And, unfortunately, if you’ve downsized drastically or have had to let everyone go, this becomes even less practical as a junk removal option.

Even if you have a healthy and robust business, you probably aren’t equipped for business junk hauling and removal. That’s because typical business junk is large, unwieldy, and heavy, which means you need available personnel and suitable vehicles to get it done properly. And this can be a real challenge for many smaller businesses.

This is why we say that the best approach is to outsource this work to a professional firm like Junk King.

The business aspect of the benefits of using junk removal experts like Junk King Washington DC for your junk removal needs far exceed any benefits of a “DIY” approach.

Junk King Washington DC and Business Junk Removal Pricing

When a business is relocating, downsizing, or even closing down, all the expenditures for the process must be critically managed. So, it makes perfect sense to ask the question “How much is it going to cost?” when it comes to business junk removal. 

This is one of the reasons we’ve made it exceptionally easy for you to get an estimate for your business junk removal project. And we base this on our guaranteed transparent and fair pricing.

If you prefer working digitally, you can use our online Pricing Estimator, or you can also get an estimate simply by texting us a photo of your items and we will text you with an estimate.

In addition, you can always call or chat live with our customer service representatives to get an accurate estimate that way.

And, if you choose to, you can simply get an estimate or even a firm price with our on-site pick-up and disposal team.
