Tips To Take the Sting Out of Foreclosure or Eviction Properties

Tips To Take the Sting Out of Foreclosure or Eviction Properties

Perhaps one of the most distressing and emotionally stressful situations that can occur for homeowners or residential tenants is a foreclosure or eviction.

However, these scenarios can be difficult for landlords, foreclosure company representatives, and real estate agents. In addition to managing the difficulties of homeowner or tenant concerns and demands, there are the timelines and legal requirements that come with the foreclosure or eviction processes.

One of the common tasks that falls on a landlord, real estate professional, or finance company agent, is clearing a property of abandoned property and debris and cleaning the property afterward.

This is why Junk King Washington DC specializes in foreclosure cleanouts and bulk trash and junk removal.

Because Landlords and Property Managers are Not in the Junk Removal BusinessJunk King Helps Landlords and Property Managers Because They Are Not in the Junk Removal Business

 

There are some projects and tasks that shouldn’t be a “do it yourself” endeavor, nor something that has to be managed and overseen by those with other responsibilities. And one of those projects is carrying out a house cleanout whether the result of an eviction or a foreclosure.

Currently, in the U.S., we have seen the end of the federally mandated eviction moratorium.

Back in 2020, Congress instituted a federal eviction moratorium, along with several extensions. Later, an eviction moratorium was issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that was supposed to last until October 2021.

However, the Supreme Court ultimately declared that the CDC’s moratorium extension was deemed unconstitutional. In addition, the federally mandated foreclosure moratorium ended on July 31, 2021. Although President Biden announced a temporary halt on evictions in many parts of the country, the initiative did not specify additional relief for homeowners who have fallen behind on mortgages because of the pandemic.

While many states have instituted their own eviction moratoriums, these either have or will soon expire, as well. And a combination of a continuing COVID-19 epidemic and an increasingly unaffordable housing market have created a “perfect storm” of an eviction and housing crisis.

According to a post at Move.org,

“COVID-19 couldn’t have hit at a worse time. Surging housing prices combined with income lost due to the global pandemic have left more than 11 million Americans at risk of eviction. In a normal year, landlords submit nearly four million eviction filings. COVID-19 eviction moratoria prevented as many as 1.6 million evictions, but the courts may soon be flooded with residential eviction cases from tenants suffering financial hardship.”

As a result, real estate agents, landlords, property managers, and financial institutions holding mortgages may soon be inundated with foreclosure filings, evictions, and all the accompanies these events like issuing an eviction notice, conducting a foreclosure, and contracting clean out services.

Which means the need for a professional junk removal service to take care of the junk removal and trash removal.

A Professional Junk Removal Service for Bulk Trash and Debris RemovalTrash Removal Junk King DC

 

Perhaps one of the most common tasks facing professional clean-out services when cleaning homes after an eviction is trash removal.

Most former residents will usually do a good job of removing all of their belongings and leaving the property is decent shape. However, since the circumstances are obviously less than pleasant, it is also understandable that these departing homeowners and renters are unlikely to clean the house.

In fact, it’s not at all uncommon for properties to be filled with piles of trash, debris, and assorted junk items piled here and there or scattered from room to room. And, while some landlords or agents may feel that this can easily be taken care of themselves, many others realize that their time is better spent on what they do best.

So, the better option is to leave the bulk trash and debris removal to the experts.

A Professional Furniture Removal Service for Old Furniture Removal

 

In some properties, not only will there be piles of rubbish and trash, but oftentimes the previous tenants or owners will have left behind old furniture.

Anyone who has had to move large furniture pieces knows that most furniture is heavy, bulky, awkward to maneuver, and difficult to move. And that’s just moving it! When it comes to old furniture removal, however, not only do the abandoned pieces have to be moved, they also have to be picked up and loaded into a truck.

And, once loaded and secured in the truck bed, they have to be hauled to a suitable location or facility for disposal, which means unloading them, as well.

Not only is this difficult, labor-intensive, and potentially dangerous work, it is certainly not the kind of project a real estate agent or landlord needs to be taking on.

Which is why a professional furniture removal service like Junk King Washington DC is the better option.

 

A Professional Appliance Removal Service for Removing Old AppliancesJunk King Can Help With Appliance Removal

 

And, if a vacated home filled with trash and old, broken furniture items isn’t enough to make this task an onerous one, it is not at all uncommon for these properties to be left with old appliances still on the premises.

Furniture is bad enough when it comes to the difficulties of moving, loading, and hauling. But household appliances can be far more challenging!

When you consider that a medium front-loading washer can weigh as much as 180 pounds. A gas, or electric, range is equally bulky and can typically weigh 130 to 220 pounds. And a large, French Door refrigerator can easily weigh over 300 pounds.

Not only do movers risk bodily injury, but there is also the very real risk of damaging the walls and floors of the property itself while removing the old appliances. And this simply adds to the expenses of making the home market-ready with unplanned repairs.

Which, of course, is another reason why the expert professionals at Junk King Washington DC specialize in services such as appliance removal.

How Junk King Can Help A Realtor Sell A Home

How Junk King Can Help A Realtor Sell A Home

Every smart Realtor and real estate agent knows that one of the universal keys to a property’s appeal is how well it shows.

This can involve everything from the home’s condition to the curb appeal and the cleanliness of the house and property. While the structure and location cannot be altered or changed, the appearance of the house and the quality of the home staging can make a significant impact during an open house.

But if the sellers have already vacated the property and they’ve little or nothing to prepare their old home for the market, what is a real estate professional or realtor to do?

When the housing market is in a heightened state of activity and is considered to be a “seller’s market,” the temptation can be for the Realtor® to do little or nothing either. Why bother when you know the house will sell and your job will be simply managing offers?

But the intelligent realtor knows that, regardless of how “hot” the market is, every home will garner more significant offers and a faster sale timeframe when it has the maximum visual appeal.

So, why neglect that aspect of selling a home and leave money on the table?

Realtor’s Know That Curb Appeal isn’t Limited to What Buyers See from the CurbCurb Appeal isn't Limited to What Buyers See from the Curb

Common sense will tell you that an open house without any attempt at home staging or neglecting any effort to provide some curb appeal will be less than spectacular.

And, if you’ve been in the real estate business for any length of time as an agent or a home buyer or seller, you have probably come to realize that “curb appeal” means far more than a prettied-up entryway and a lawn that’s been recently mowed.

The concept of “curb appeal” extends beyond the front of the house and to the sides and back of the home and property, and it also includes the interior of the home. In other words, a properly prepared home will ensure that everything is clean, manicured, well-staged, and looking as appealing as possible.

But unfortunately, many homes are vacated by their owners prior to going on the market and the work of getting that house “whipped into shape” falls on the real estate agent.

Because many suburban homes have lawns, landscaping, and often trees and shrubbery, part of the process can mean clearing up and removing organic waste from the property. Yard waste removal is needed. And that’s not necessarily in the realtor’s skill set.

And the yards might have more than grass clippings, trimmings from shrubs, and so on. Many properties can also be cluttered with junk from patios and decks, old lumber or timber debris, and other trash and detritus. And all this rubbish needs to be cleaned up and removed, as well.

Then there’s the inside of the home.

Home Staging for an Open House Can’t Happen Until the Junk is Removed!Home Staging for an Open House Can't Happen Until the Junk is Removed!

When sellers leave their old home to move into a new residence, they don’t always clean the old house. In fact, they don’t always leave it completely empty. And that has to be dealt with before the house can be put on the market and shown to potential buyers.

When a home is left behind when the previous owner has passed away, a realtor will often call on professional estate clean out services.

But these types of clean out services can be relied on even if the previous owners simply moved out but left a mess behind.

Sometimes previous residents will leave old appliances behind and even pieces of furniture that they chose not to keep. There are times when the former occupants leave other personal belongings and property, such as old clothing, broken exercise equipment, electronics, and bags of trash and other debris.

Of course, for the realtor, this is simply junk. And, more often than not, it will require junk removal service to get it all out of there.

Sure, some real estate professionals will choose to tackle the junk removal work themselves. And this is a task that can be done even if the agent doesn’t have access to a truck.

While an option might be renting a WM Bagster for all the yard waste and even the junk inside the house, this option is somewhat limited. Availability can be limited, as is the holding capacity of the collapsible bag.

However, there are better options.

Selling a Home with the Help of a Junk Removal ServiceDumpster Rental

Every realtor and real estate professional knows that working with empty properties often means dealing with the junk left behind by former homeowners. These prior residents may have felt that they had little reason to leave their former home in a clean and empty condition when they moved out of the property.

Circumstances vary, but there are several reasons why former occupants do not or cannot empty and clean a home sufficiently. And the realtor is responsible for showing the home must make sure that it gets done quickly, efficiently, and cost-effectively so it can be prepped for the open house.

This is why Junk King Washington DC specializes in residential junk removal and residential clean out services.

The unfortunate reality for the real estate profession is that many vacated properties are often left behind filled with trash, unwanted appliances, abandoned belongings, old furniture, and other items that the previous homeowners did not or could not remove and haul away.

What is even more unfortunate for the realtor is that this task then falls on them. This is why Junk King Washington DC is the optimal choice when faced with a residential clean out.

Another reason that Junk King is a better alternative is that, not only can we do all the junk cleaning, loading, and removal for you, you can also choose to use a convenient dumpster rental as a cost-effective option. Far superior to a Bagster and far easier to use and affordable than other rental dumpsters, the Junk King MINI Dumpster is a great way to load up all the trash, yard waste, and other junk at your convenience.

And when you’re ready, we’ll simply come and haul it away for you.

3 Services That Can Make DIY Home Remodeling Easier

<script type=”text/javascript” src=”//s7.addthis.com/js/300/addthis_widget.js#pubid=ra-6176d7df6127ae4b“></script>Homeowners love to improve their living spaces.

Many do so to improve livability and potential resale value, while others simply want to enjoy their homes more. Either way, this has traditionally led to a variety of DIY home remodeling projects. These range from major kitchen remodels to garage makeovers to deck or patio additions.

And, perhaps most often, a DIY bathroom remodel.

Need additional information? Learn more about our dumpster rental services.

 

Making Use of Design Services for a DIY Bathroom Remodel

Although many homeowners already know their grand plan for their master bath remodel, enlisting the insight and advice of a trusted design service can open new possibilities. Until we’ve taken the time to research our options and see what a design service can recommend, we are limiting our potential.

At their most basic level, designers can help make your bathroom space functional, safe, and beautiful by determining space requirements and selecting essential and decorative items, such as colors, lighting, and materials.

A bathroom designer’s fees can vary depending on the work to be done as well as the price of materials and design services in our area.

In addition to design service fees, the average cost for a mid-range bathroom remodel in the District, according to Remodeling magazine, was $25,201. For the wider South Atlantic region, it was $23,134. This type of home improvement adds a resale value of $14,921 in DC and $13,066 for the rest of the area.

And, when factoring the ROI, a mid-range bathroom remodel recoups 59.2% of the costs compared to just 56.5% for those living in the South Atlantic region.

Of course, these costs reflect hiring a contractor for the job. If you can do most or all of this type of bathroom remodel yourself, you can retain a sizable portion of that projected cost, which would make it quite feasible and cost-effective to bring on design services at the start!

Call Before You Dig’ is Good Advice – Make Use of Utility Locator Services

When planning a DIY bathroom remodel, knowing where the primary utility lines and pipes are can help prevent costly repairs or unintentional damage.

Although it may not be necessary if your DIY bathroom remodel project is limited to upgrading fixtures or replacing tile and flooring, it is still a good idea to know your home’s underground electrical lines, gas pipes, and water and sewer lines are.

This is because if you dig into the ground without first confirming the location of utility lines on your property, you could easily damage your home’s water, gas, electrical, communications, or sewer lines. That could result in utilities being cut off, expensive repairs, and possible injury.

Fortunately, there is a national utility locater service program you can make use of.

811 is the national call-before-you-dig phone number. If you plan to dig, you should call 811 or go to your state 811 center’s website before digging to request that the approximate location of buried utilities on your property be marked with paint or flags. This will help ensure that you don’t unintentionally dig into an underground utility.

However, there’s a bit more to it than that. The 811 service only applies to public utilities.

According to one local service,

“You may require a private utility locator to find and demarcate underground electrical lines, gas pipes, and more on private, residential, commercial, and municipal land.

Private utilities are the lines that run beyond the service meter. For example, electrical cables that go from the meter to a house or building would be considered private. To have these marked, you will need to call in a private underground utility locator.”

Debris Removal Once Your DIY Bathroom Remodel is Complete

And you’ll probably need that service a few times during your project, as well!

One of the things that comes with any home remodeling project is the need for debris removal. And even though it may be a DIY project, that doesn’t mean your junk removal tasks have to be DIY, as well.

In fact, making full use of a reliable, locally-owned, and operated junk removal service means more time to focus on completing your bathroom remodel. Even if you only need a junk removal service once at the end of your project, it is still risky, costly, and highly inconvenient to do it yourself.

Keep in mind, too, that often with remodeling, some of your debris might contain what are known as hazardous waste, or HW, and there are several local, state, and federal regulations that require these items to be handled and disposed of properly.

And, when it comes to the rest of your debris and junk removal needs, it’s nice to know that you don’t have to do it yourself.

Calling in the Professional Service – Junk King

Junk King Washington DC will have all your large junk items , and unwanted debris removed efficiently, safely, and quickly from your home. Not only are we reliable and affordable, but we also guarantee to beat any other written price estimate.

And unlike most other junk removal companies, we won’t charge you by the weight of your load like most other companies do. That approach simply means that end up paying more for heavy junk items to be hauled than for lighter materials that take up the same amount of space.

That’s not how we operate at Junk King Washington DC.

No matter what your bulk trash, large junk, or remodeling debris is composed of, we still only charge you for the room it all takes up in our truck. And that means savings for you and a fair price. And at Junk King, we never add in hidden fees or “extra” charges, and that’s because offering fair and transparent pricing is our preferred way of doing business.

e-waste removal services washington dc

The Benefits of Electronic Waste Recycling With Junk King Washington DC

In the United States, it has been estimated that since 2017 approximately 393,000,000 desktop PCs, 896,000,000 tablets, and 1,152,000,000 laptops have been sold.

That means, among other things, that we’re looking at potentially hundreds of millions of “old” PCs, tablets, and laptops being disposed of over the next five years. And that’s in addition the millions that are already being gotten rid of today.

Unfortunately, with all the electronics being disposed of – computers included – not nearly enough of them are being recycled.

While recent statistics are hard to come by, according to estimates from the Environmental Protection Agency, or EPA,

“…in 2009, US consumers and businesses discarded televisions, computers, cell phones and hard copy peripherals (including printers, scanners, faxes) totaling 2.37 million tons. Approximately 25 percent of these electronics were collected for recycling, with the remainder disposed of primarily in landfills, where the precious metals cannot be recovered.”

And one of the major benefits of electronic waste recycling is the extraction and recovery of valuable and rare metals. Another benefit is the reduction of the environmental threat posed by electronic waste in landfills.

Keeping Electronic Waste Disposal Eco-Friendly and Environmentally Safe

Although it is far easier to dispose of electronic waste, or e-waste as it is known, by sending it to landfills, this is certainly not an eco-friendly option. And, in fact, it is potential hazardous to our environment.

On the plus side, e-waste typically holds a wealth of reusable materials.

As one article notes,

“Electronic devices are made of a complex mix of materials that include gold, silver, copper, platinum, palladium, lithium, cobalt and other valuable elements. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) says, “One metric ton of circuit boards can contain 40 to 800 times the amount of gold and 30 to 40 times the amount of copper mined from one metric ton of ore in the United States.” These precious materials can be reclaimed through recycling.”

However, these same repositories of resources have a dark side. The same article goes on to point out,

“But electronic devices also comprise toxic heavy metals like lead, mercury, cadmium and beryllium, polluting PVC plastic, and hazardous chemicals, such as brominated flame retardants, which can harm human health and the environment.”

While electronic waste only makes up about three percent of America’s solid waste stream, all the lead, cadmium, chromium, and other toxic materials they contain make up about 70 percent of the total amount of hazardous material in landfills, according to the EPA.

Which is why reducing the overall volume of e-waste in our landfills will make those facilities that much eco-friendlier and safer.

Two Great Alternatives for Electronic Waste Disposal in the Washington DC Area

The good news is that tossing electronic waste into the trash and, consequently, into a landfill, is not our only options. Donating usable electronics or recycling unwanted e-waste are far better alternatives.

And the other good news is that Junk King Washington DC is ready to help you with your electronic waste recycling needs.

It’s estimated that the vast majority of used electronics that are destined for a dumpster can actually be donated, refurbished, or simply reused by those who need them. Despite the massive quantity of PCs, laptops, and tablets in our country, for example, there are still about 25 percent of Americans who do not own one.

That’s approximately 80 million folks who could benefit from a donated desktop PC, laptop, or tablet device. And, of course, there are the phones. Millions upon millions of used cellphones, many of them smart phones, are tossed out each year. Yet, these too, can often be donated.

In other words, we have multiple opportunities to donate electronics of all kinds to those in need.

The other eco-friendly e-waste disposal alternative that avoids putting it all in a landfill, is electronic waste recycling.

In addition to the metals contained in most electronics, the materials that devices are made of can often be recycled, as well. This can include glass, plastics, and circuitry. Electronic waste recycling decreases the amount of raw materials needed for manufacturing new products and provides jobs and revenue that add to the economy.

And there are a wide variety of devices that can make up our electronic recycling efforts.

Computer recycling is, perhaps, one of the most common, and presents both huge benefits for the environment and the electronic waste recycling industry, but also potential issues for donors.

Things to Consider When It Comes to Safe and Easy Electronic Device Disposal

Unfortunately, there are very real security risks when donating or recycling of certain devices. Primarily there is the risk of someone getting an old computer with personal info on it. Identity thieves could use the sensitive data stored on your device for assorted frauds, but you can make it hard for them.

There are steps you can take prior to donating or disposing of these e-waste devices to provide for a secure transition.

According to online security company Norton,

  • Back it up. Be sure to back up your documents, photos, and other important information. Or transfer this data to your new device. This way you won’t lose it. To back up your data, you can make a copy in a physical location, such as on an external hard drive or thumb drive. Or you can make a copy that is stored in the “cloud,” or online, in a secure location.
  • Erase it. Once you’ve backed up the data you want to save, make sure you’ve deleted everything on your old device. This includes your download folder, photos, and the search history on your internet browser. You should clear your browsing history, cookies and site data, and cached files and images. It’s a good idea not to leave anything behind that might give someone access to your personal information.
  • Don’t forget about your apps. Delete all of your apps. This includes deleting app cache and data.
  • Wipe your hard drive. Deleting things like files from your device doesn’t mean they’ve been completely erased. Remember to completely wipe your hard drive as well.
  • Do a factory reset. Follow the device manufacturer’s instructions and do a factory reset, which should eliminate anything left on your device.

When It Comes To Mattress Disposal, DC Residents Can Sleep Peacefully

Mattress Removal

 

Mattresses only last for so long.

 

Unfortunately, because of the cost of new mattresses – and the hassle of old mattress disposal – too many of us keep our mattresses far past the time they are still able to provide us with a good night’s sleep.

 

But when should we really replace our old mattresses? 

 

The folks at Sleep Foundation point out that,

 

“Most mattresses should last between 7 and 10 years. However, there are many variables that can influence mattress lifespan. The original build quality of the mattress, the materials used, and even the weight and sleeping styles of the sleepers can all influence a bed’s longevity.”

 

And even if you find a great deal on a new mattress and are ready to bring one home, if your retailer won’t take your old one, you’ll have to figure out what to do with it. 

 

Which is why Junk King Washington DC specializes in helping you get rid of old mattresses.

Green Mattress Disposal with Junk King Washington DC

 

Junk King is on a mission and has been since the company was founded in 2005. 

 

That corporate mission is to be an environmentally responsible and genuinely green junk removal firm. And the thrust of that mission is to make sure as much junk as possible is either recycled or donated. Today, Junk King is the only national junk removal company that operates with the goal of recycling 60 percent or more of every job by using local sorting facilities.

 

With a priority on recycling as much junk items and materials as possible, this corporate mission has been embraced by Junk King Washington DC, as well. And Junk King Washington DC is proud to be a part of the greenest junk removal operation in North America.

 

We work hard here in the Capital region to sort every load we bring in to separate out various types of materials in our recycling warehouses such as metals, plastics, wood, glass, textiles, and reusable items.

 

And, of course, old mattresses so that we can keep them out of the landfills.

 

Given the fact that Washington DC has no landfills of its own and very few waste transfer stations, these efforts add up. However, the sad fact is that most of the old and used mattresses that end up being hauled away from homes and other facilities can’t be reused. 

 

Most of the materials in a typical mattress can be recycled, but not everything. According to the website at Green Matters,

 

“The different component pieces of used mattresses can be used in different ways. The wood frames of box springs can be processed into wood chops and repurposed into particleboard, mulch, or animal bedding. The metal springs within mattresses can be melted down and reused in anything from appliances to buildings to vehicles.”

 

However, Junk King Washington DC has found a way to meet a burning need for old mattresses.

 

 

 

Mattress Disposal, DC Junk Hauling, and Waste-to-Energy Plants

 

furniture removal

 

Through a strategic partnership with a national waste processing company, we are able to dispose of large quantities of old mattresses with an innovative mattress removal process. 

 

After collecting old mattresses at our Junk King warehouse, we transport loads of them to the I-95 Energy/Resource Recovery Facility in Lorton, Virginia.

 

After being delivered to the advanced incineration waste-to-energy plant, they are strategically placed on the facility floor leading to the entry to the furnace. Workers hold these mattresses in place with their bulldozer blades and guide them across the floor towards the furnace opening. 

 

By using these old mattresses like “giant squeegees” they regularly clean the floor with them before finally pushing them into the furnace. The massive, hi-tech combustion furnaces reach temperatures close to 2000 degrees Fahrenheit and are used to superheat water, which is then turned into steam and pumped into turbine generators. 

 

Back at Junk King Washington DC’s sorting facility, after we have collected another load of old mattresses, we take them to the Furnace Road waste-to-energy facility, drop them off, and the cycle is repeated.

 

The incineration process vaporizes almost all the solid waste, leaving just a small residue of ash remaining. While this relatively harmless incineration by-product was disposed of in landfills, an innovative processing system now takes the ash from Waste-to-Energy facilities and further separates it into its component parts.

 

Composed primarily of small metal particles, these are recycled into an aggregate that can be reused in construction material, such as hot-mix asphalt for roads and parking lots, as well as commercial concrete uses. The best part is that the process can reduce the amount of ash being sent to landfills by as much as 65 percent.

 

The end result is that, when it comes to mattress disposal, DC area residents can partner with the team at Junk King Washington DC by sending hundreds of mattresses that would usually end up in landfills, to be turned into electricity to power local homes.

Affordable And Reliable Junk Removal: Washington DC Looks To The Pros

Junk King Junk Removal

Junk removal and waste disposal has a long and often undistinguished history in our nation. 

 

For example, up until the early 1900’s, dumping waste in any convenient location was still permitted. Trash and junk would be dumped in the ocean, wetlands, or any other available “wasteland” area that was convenient.

 

At the time, according to one source, many small towns and cities were using piggeries to dispose of organic waste. These were small farms with pigs that consumed food waste. It took 75 pigs to eat about one ton of food waste each day. Anything that wasn’t food waste was usually burned or buried.

 

One of the first municipal trash and street cleaning efforts in the United States came about in nearby Philadelphia back when the nation was still a group of colonies.

 

According to an article,

 

“In 1762, Franklin boldly proposed an act that would take seven years to finalize and pass in Philadelphia. The statute delineates the need to prioritize cleaning and paving streets, alleys, and sidewalks; suggests a program to expand the storm-water drainage system; plans a system of scavengers and requirements for removing sweepings, ash, shavings and manure from the city; and implements a tax and fee schedule to fund the attempt to bring order to the urban environment.

 

Upon implementation, Franklin’s vision of technology and systematic infrastructure as a solution to the city’s sanitation problem was a success,”

 

Fast forward to the 2020s in Washington DC. What do we do with our trash and waste?

 

Well, it seems that DC’s unrecycled municipal solid waste is sent to incinerators and landfills in Virginia. And the Capital’s estimated 25,000 tons of recycled metal, glass, paper and plastic are sent to a facility in Maryland, where they are processed for markets. 

 

But there are no landfills in DC, of course. So, what about residential junk?

 

That’s where we come in, because Junk King Washington DC specializes in junk removal.

Junk and Debris Must Go: The Junk Removal Washington DC Needs

 

Dumpster Rental

 

A perfect example is a residential construction project that generates trash, debris, and all kinds of waste materials. All of this must be cleaned up repeatedly throughout the length of the job so the contractor and others can keep the site safe and easy to work in.

 

Unfortunately, this often means that the contractor must take the time away from the job to haul away and dispose of all the junk and debris. And this is a task that is both time-consuming and tedious.

 

And most of the time, construction junk and debris removal is a job no one wants to do, and that no one really has the time for.

 

Another good example are the many homeowners and renters who regularly find themselves holding on to old junk items that really need to be gotten rid of. And many times, this consists of household junk that is too large to be put into their residential recycling or trash bins.

 

While they might consider getting rid of those things themselves, these folks often don’t have a pickup truck, or they might not have anyone around that can help with the chore!

 

In fact, it is often better to avoid taking the do-it-yourself route when it comes to loading, hauling, and unloading large, bulky, and heavy junk times. Life is risky enough these days with COVID, civil unrest, and angry drivers!

 

Here are just a few of the potential downsides to hauling your own junk, debris, or trash:

 

  • Having to rent a truck or borrow one
  • Injuries, pulled muscles, and strained backs
  • Finding locations for proper disposal
  • Knowing what can be disposed of and what must be recycled

 

The good news is that there is an easy and reliable way to avoid the pain and cost of hauling your own junk and still have it removed quickly and affordably. Just a quick call to a professional and junk hauling firm like Junk King Washington DC can make your junk hauling burden an easy and enjoyable experience.

Need Junk Removal? Washington DC Relies on Junk King

 

Even if you only need junk removal services a few times a year or so it can be risky, costly, and highly inconvenient to do it yourself, as we have pointed out here.

 

Not only that, depending on the materials, some of your junk and debris can contain what are known as household hazardous wastes, or HHW, and there are several local, state, and federal regulations that require these items to be handled and disposed of properly.

 

A side note on the HHW, by the way: District residents can drop off household hazardous waste and unwanted electronic waste at the DC Department of Public Works Benning Road Transfer Station at no cost.

 

But remember that HHW cannot be put in trash or recycling containers, nor should they be included with items for bulk trash collection. So, make use of the hazardous waste drop off location, if you can.

 

And, when it comes to the rest of your junk removal needs, the good news is that you don’t have to do it yourself.

 

With Junk King Washington DC, you can have all your large junk items and unwanted debris efficiently, safely, and quickly removed from your home or place of work. Not only are we reliable and affordable, but we also guarantee to beat any other written estimate.

 

In fact, we are confident that our prices are better than any comparable operator – and that means a licensed, insured, junk removal company that operates a recycling-based operation, just like Junk King.

 

And unlike most other junk removal companies, we don’t charge you by the weight of your load. While many companies do, this just means that customers pay more for heavy junk items than for lighter junk materials that take up the same amount of space in their trucks.

 

Not at Junk King Washington DC.

 

No matter what your bulk trash, large junk, or other unwanted debris is composed of, we only charge you for the room it takes up in our truck. That means money savings for you and a fair price. And at Junk King we never build in hidden fees or “extra” charges because fair and transparent pricing is simply our way of doing business.

For Reliable Dumpster Rental, Washington DC Has A Great Option

Dumpster Rental

 

Sometimes we find ourselves with a project that requires a great deal of cleanup. If it’s simply a large amount of relatively small things like yard debris or all the trash after a football party in the backyard, it might all fit in our residential trash and recycling bins.

 

Or not. 

 

For some, that big project that requires cleanup is more along the lines of a remodel or home renovation. Maybe the front and back yards. Or we’re converting the garage into a home theater and game room.

 

And the trash, junk, and debris just keeps piling up, day after day. Sometimes for weeks. 

 

So, who wants to deal with all that and make multiple trips to the local waste transfer station? It’s not like you can load it all into a giant truck and take it straight to a landfill. Not in the Capital region anyway…

 

Which is why Junk King Washington DC offers reliable and affordable dumpster rentals.

 

full service junk removal

 

A Dumpster Rental? At My House In DC?

 

Yes, you can do that.

 

And it really doesn’t matter where you live in the DC area – Upper Marlboro, Cheltenham, Fort Washington, Annapolis, or even Hyattsville – you can rent your own debris dumpster.

 

No, not those big ones.

 

You could actually, but there’s really no reason for the average homeowner in the greater DC area to have a twenty-three foot long, eight foot wide, and eight foot high beast of a box sitting in front of your house. Not unless you’re going to actually dismantle your entire home and have it carted off!

 

On the other hand, there are several reasons why a Washington DC resident could make use of a rental dumpster that takes up no more room than a full-size pickup truck and holds five times more than the truck.

 

What kinds of reasons?

 

Well, here’s an illustrated guide that shows some of the ways our customers use our unique MINI Dumpster rental:

 

5 Reasons For Dumpster Rental

As you can see, there can be a wide variety of projects and situations that could call for a rental dumpster on site that allows you to “stage” your junk, waste, and debris for up to three days. 

 

Our MINI Dumpster comes equipped with polycarbonate wheels that prevent scouring of concrete driveways and sidewalks, for easy-to-open doors for quick and safe loading, and an impressive load capacity of up to twelve cubic yards. 

 

How much is that?

 

Well, for a visual, imagine five rows of mini-refrigerators lined up seven units long – and another five rows stacked on top of them. That’s 70 mini-refrigerators! The MINI Dumpster can hold all those and still have some room to spare.

A Great Way to Get Rid of All Your Junk – On Your Schedule

So, if like we suggested at the start here, you find yourself working on a project that is going to take several days to complete, it’s quite likely that you’ll be creating trash, waste, and debris off and on throughout those days.

And you might find out very quickly that simply “staging” your junk or debris in a pile (or piles) on your driveway, patio, or lawn is not only messy but can be a hazard

Seriously.

Imagine several days’ worth of junk, debris, and trash sitting in your front yard or driveway, waiting until you have the time and means to haul it all away. Not only is it unsightly, but it’s probably not safe, either, especially if you have children or pets running around. 

Imagine instead how great it would be to have a handy, residential sized dumpster rental conveniently parked just outside your garage door. With one of these convenient roll-off dumpsters available for two or three days you could simply toss things into it whenever you come across them.

Some junk today, more trash tomorrow, and maybe lots of debris the day after that.

This is just one of the several reasons why having one of our user-friendly and roomy MINI Dumpster rentals can be the perfect thing for your big cleanout or cleanup project.

The good news is that you can have one delivered right to your home with just one phone call. 

And should you find that you end up needing the dumpster for more than three days, we also provide five and seven day rental agreements, as well.

When You Need Additional DC Trash Pickup


Trash Removal Junk King DC

 

Here’s a cool factoid for you: In 2018, the private companies handled 302,000 tons of solid waste from Washington DC, more than twice what the Department of Public Works’ trucks handled.

 

So, it appears that we’ve been generating over 450,000 tons of trash, waste, garbage, and rubbish each year for a while now.  

 

Oh, and as a side note, the District of Columbia has no landfills. Every ton of trash picked up in DC proper is hauled to one of two waste transfer stations and then hauled to an incinerator in Lorton, Virginia.

 



 

It’s a bit better for communities and residents in Prince George’s County, fortunately. The county provides regular residential trash pick up services for about 164,000 households. And they have the Brown Station Road Landfill for disposing of whatever isn’t recycled – or incinerated.

 

But getting them to pick up bulky trash items or excess trash can be a problem – and even impossible at times. 

 

Which is why Junk King Washington DC specializes in excess and bulky trash removal.

When Your Trash Gets to Be More than You Bargained For

 

If you are in or near DC, trash pickup probably isn’t something you give much thought to. Except maybe on garbage days when you get to work and realize you forgot to put your cans out!

 

Then there’s the occasional overloaded trash bin pile that you hope will stay together long enough for it to actually end up in the truck when it gets picked up. But, for most of us in DC, trash pickup is not something we concern ourselves with. 

 

Until we find ourselves with way too much trash for the bins we have. Or it’s trash items that are too large and bulky for the bins. Then we definitely are thinking about it. Especially when the air is freezing, the snow is falling, and roads are icing, and we don’t have a vehicle suitable for hauling our own trash!

 

We get it.

 

The good news is that you have a great option for your trash pickup dilemma. And it is a reliable and affordable option, as well. 

 

At Junk King Washington DC we’ve been removing, hauling, and disposing of trash, junk, and debris in the Capital region for many years now and we know trash. And just about everything there is to know about trash removal and disposal. 

 

So, excess trash, bulky trash, or just plain too much trash – we can handle it for you.

A Promising Future for a Dismal Past – Recycling Trash in DC

 

Like we said, we know trash. 

 

For starters, not all trash and junk has to be landfilled or incinerated. In fact, most of it can be recycled or even reused, if one knows how to go about it. And we do – extremely well. 

 

Junk King Washington DC, like their corporate partner, was founded on the premise of being green, environmentally friendly, and a recycling-based junk removal service. And we practice that premise daily by recycling up to 60 percent of everything we collect to keep landfills down and communities clean.

 

Unfortunately, the Washington DC area has not been exceptionally “green” in this arena historically. Which is not to say that diversion of reusable waste and recycling are something new to the Capitol.

 

According to one author

 

“In the early years of the 20th Century low-income girls and women were hired to pick through garbage on sorting tables to recover materials. In the more recent past, recycling of newspapers and metals was a key fundraising tool for community organizations in the District.”

 

In the early years of the 20th Century, low-income girls and women were hired to pick through garbage on sorting tables to recover materials. Later on, commercial recycling was sustained by ‘scrappies’ or ‘junk yards’ in the city even as they were scaled down from their heyday during WWII.

 

However, back in the day, most everything else ended up in what we would today call a “landfill” known as the Kenilworth Dump.

 

“The Kenilworth Dump was created by the city adjacent to the Kenilworth neighborhood in Northeast DC in the early 1940s as the city’s population boomed during World War II. The Dump was a dump. Despite widespread complaints from the surrounding neighborhood, garbage was tipped and burned in the open.”

 

That facility was thankfully shut down in the late 1960s and a fancy, new landfill was built on the site which served DC residents and others for another ten years or so. 

In the last five years the city has made significant progress in developing a modern waste and recycling system that aims to reduce the waste stream by 80 percent by 2030. The current residential recycling rate is close to 30 percent after having been around 20 percent for many years.

 

And Junk King Washington DC is proud to have contributed to that improvement and hitting the goals set for 2030.

For Those Living Near DC Yard Waste Pickup Can Be A Dirty Job

Yard Waste

 

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.

 

Book a Touchless Appointment Today!

 

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:

 

Yard Waste Infographic

 

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.

For Easy Furniture Removal, DC Residents Have The Answer

furniture removal

 

Talk about an oxymoron: “easy furniture removal” are definitely some words that most of us would never put together in the same sentence. 

 

Unless it was something like, “I wish I could find an easy furniture removal solution!” But seriously, who talks like that besides people in radio ads?

 

For those of us living in the Washington DC area and have had to move furniture ourselves, we know that there’s nothing easy about hauling dining room tables, large china cabinets, or office desks around from the house or office and out to a truck.

 

In fact – for many of us – muscling large pieces of old furniture around ranks right up there with getting root canals or sitting through an IRS audit. Okay, so maybe not that bad. But there is nothing “easy” about furniture removal.

 

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