Quality Junk Hauling Services With An Eco-Friendly Twist

Quality Junk Hauling Services With An Eco-Friendly Twist

A quality junk hauling service should involve more than simply some guys with a truck who haul junk away. And the Capital region has no shortage of people who will let you pay them to just pick up junk.

But top-notch junk hauling services consist of much more than some low-paid junk haulers driving an ugly truck.

The days of the ‘Sanford and Son’ solo junk hauling are mostly history today. Junk removal, junk hauling, and especially junk disposal are a bit more complex than they used to be. In addition, discriminating customers have higher and broader expectations today, especially in the greater Washington DC area.

Which is why Junk King Washington DC specializes in providing top-rated quality junk hauling services.

Quality Junk Hauling Means Green Junk Hauling

So, what do we mean by “quality junk hauling” anyway?

When it comes to defining quality in a service business, a few things top the list of “must haves” such as:

  • Exceptional customer service
  • Highly trained staff
  • Fair and transparent pricing
  • A large number of positive reviews

And, especially for a junk removal service business, a genuinely green and eco-friendly operation.

The truth is that Junk King Washington DC checks off on all these qualities which, in turn, means that we are a truly quality junk hauling service.

But we have never believed in “resting on our laurels” when it comes to doing business with our customers here in the Capital region. We understand that you have choices when it comes to junk removal and that many of our competitors can also score well on some of these features.

But, when it comes to environmentally-conscious and green junk hauling, Junk King has no peer.

What does that look like?

For the most part, junk recycling consists of recovering and reusing construction waste, scrap metal, wood debris, and bulk paper and cardboard waste. Because almost all of these types of materials are both recyclable and in demand, we sort and then facilitate the junk materials we bring in to make this happen.

And then there’s e-waste recycling

 e-waste recycling

E-Waste Collection and E-Waste Recycling in the DC AreaE-Waste Collection and E-Waste Recycling in the DC Area

E-waste, or electronic waste, is essentially any electronic device or appliance containing electronics, which has been disposed of.

Another definition that’s a bit more exhaustive is found at Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) website,

“’E-waste’, ‘electronic waste’, ‘e-scrap’ and ‘end-of-life electronics’ are terms often used to describe used electronics that are nearing the end of their useful life, and are discarded, donated or given to a recycler. Though “e-waste” is the commonly used term, EPA considers e-waste to be a subset of used electronics and recognizes the inherent value of these materials that can be reused, refurbished or recycled to minimize the actual waste that might end up in a landfill or improperly disposed in an unprotected dump site either in the US or abroad.”

Common examples of e-waste that we see here at Junk King include desktop and laptop computers, televisions, VCRs, stereos, copiers, old fax machines, and cell phones.

E-waste recycling is important since certain components of some electronic products contain materials that render them hazardous, depending on their condition and density. For instance, nonfunctioning cathode ray tubes (CRTs) from televisions and monitors are hazardous.

As one source points out,

“E-waste recycling is the reuse and reprocessing of electrical and electronic equipment of any type that has been discarded or regarded as obsolete.”

So, what can be recycled from waste electronics? Recyclable e-waste materials include:

  • Plastic
  • Glass
  • Metal
  • Circuit boards

In addition to the myriad of recoverable materials including precious metals such as gold, silver, and platinum, and rare earth components, recycling diverts potential hazardous and even toxic materials from ending up in landfills and, eventually, the atmosphere or groundwater.

“They were fast and efficient, very professional, a very likeable crew.” – Anthony P, Bowie, MD

“The team was punctual and very polite and friendly. They did a great job getting rid of everything we need them to.” – Susan D, Fort Washington, MD

Junk King Washington DC Construction Waste

Partner With Junk King DC Today For Construction Waste Disposal

There have been so many wildfires across the nation over the last five years that it may be difficult to remember watching, reading, or listening to the news of the horrific wildfires that tore through four counties in Northern California in October 2017.

As the Press Democrat newspaper in Santa Rosa reported afterwards, the 2017 wildfires,

 “…destroyed 5,334 Sonoma County homes. In Santa Rosa, the Tubbs fire alone destroyed about 3,000 homes, primarily in Coffey Park and Fountaingrove and accounting for 5% of the city’s housing stock.”

Most of the homes, especially in the hardest hit areas, were literally reduced to rubble and cracked foundations. In Northern California, most homes are built on slabs with no basements. The heat and the toxic residue left behind from the fires rendered the foundation of every totaled structure unusable.

The quantities of rubble and debris that had to be removed was almost overwhelming.

According to the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), six months later, the cleanup was more than 92 percent complete. Crews removed 2.2 million tons debris, more than double the weight of the iconic Golden Gate Bridge.

By the time cleanup operations were completed, more than 4,500 properties were cleared.

This was not your grandmother’s rubbish removal.

In fact, this wasn’t even your grandfather’s construction waste removal – unless he happened to be helping clear rubble in cities destroyed during WWII perhaps!

Fortunately, when you have your own large quantities of construction waste to be cleared, along with other rubbish removal needs, you don’t have to do it yourself – or call on the US Army Corps of Engineers!

Construction Debris Removal and Rubbish Removal Made Easy

Regardless of whether you own or manage a construction company, or you simply are up to your chin in home remodeling debris and rubble, getting rid of construction waste is no one’s favorite task.

Although the building phase of a construction project – commercial or DIY residential – might generate a decent amount of trash, debris, and assorted rubbish, it’s nothing like the waste that can pile up during a construction demolition project.

Actually, demolition waste adds up to substantially more!

The EPA reports that demolition represents more than 90 percent of total construction and demolition (C&D) debris generation, while construction represents less than 10 percent. And in 2018 alone, over 455 million tons of the 600 million tons of C&D debris were used for fuel, manufactured products, aggregate, compost and mulch or soil amendment.

The remaining 145 million tons was sent to landfills.

So, while your own piles of construction waste might be overwhelming, you’re not alone in creating it. For many residential folks, all that construction waste is often mixed in with assorted types of yard waste and other junk. Taken altogether, it can make for an impressive rubbish removal job.

The good news is that, thanks to Junk King Washington DC, you don’t have to do it yourself!

When to Bring in Professional Junk Hauling Services for Your Construction Waste

There are times when everyone, from contractor to homeowner to business owner, needs junk removed. That’s because some junk removal and junk hauling jobs can really only be done safely, easily, and cost-effectively by a full-service junk removal company.

Like Junk King Washington DC.

And we specialize in construction waste removal. But we are also quite experienced with bulk yard waste removal tasks, removing concrete rubble and masonry, as well as most any other type of rubbish and junk removal you may need done.

If you are not in a position to pick up junk, load it in a truck, transport it to a waste management facility of some kind, and possibly do so for multiple trips, then you really need to call a reliable junk pick up service.

At Junk King Washington DC we are not simply junk haulers, but we are experts at all phases of junk removal and disposal. And a significant part of our expertise is with green, environmentally-friendly junk disposal processes. For us, being green is much more than a nice advertising slogan.

We are a genuinely “green” operation, and we work hard to continually recycle at least 60 percent of all the junk, rubbish, and debris that we pick up and haul away for our customers.

And this includes construction waste and debris.

Most construction company managers and residential contractors understand that the task of debris and construction waste removal and disposal is a time-consuming, labor-intensive and – as a result – costly undertaking that they would rather do without.

Instead of paying their own workers to leave off from their productive, revenue-generating labor and spend time being paid to pick up junk and debris, they would rather outsource it.

And Junk King Washington DC is ready to help!

At Junk King Washington DC we have the manpower that is both highly-trained and experienced with all types of junk and debris removal.

Junk King Junk Hauling in Washington DC

Understanding The Premium Junk Hauling Services From Junk King Washington DC

Many businesses and retailers offer tiers of services for their customers.

Costco, for example, offers three levels of membership: Gold, Business, and Executive. And each of them have different degrees of features and benefits included. And Ancestry has three tiers of subscriber levels from U.S. Discover to World Explorer to All Access.

This pricing, membership, and subscription model is certainly not new, however. Businesses and organizations have offered premium tier memberships, products, and services for generations.

So, what is a premium service really?

One source described it as a level of customer service that extends beyond basic service activities, or value-added services, while the website BizFluent.com defines it as,

“[A]n advanced level of customer service that extends beyond basic service activities to include a more personalized and customized approach that create a customer-centric business atmosphere.”

Typically, too, premium service or products are considered to be distinct from a company’s normal or standard offerings.

As BizFluent goes on to note,

“Premium customer service exceeds basic courtesy, helpfulness, cashier and floor support. Customers typically get a more personalized service from a sales associate or customer service level. Special ordering, customer feedback, value-added unique services, and other extras are examples of premium level services.”

However, some companies provide premium services as their “standard” service offerings.

What makes these companies stand out as a premium service provider is how they compare to others in their field or industry. By raising the bar and striving for a consistently higher level of service, these companies are inherently premium service providers.

Which is exactly why Junk King Washington DC can offer premium junk hauling services.

When You Need Full Service Junk Removal in the DC Area, Call for Premium Junk Hauling

Rubbish removal and junk removal are tasks that no one really wants to do themselves.

Which is why Junk King Washington DC specializes in rubbish removal, junk removal, and all other types of junk hauling services. So, you might say that maybe no on else wants to do it, but we excel at it!

There are times in the lives of homeowners, renters, and business owners everywhere across the Capital region when they need junk removed. This could simply be large quantities of yard waste after a spring landscaping project or cleanup, and perhaps old appliance removal for folks with no means of doing it themselves.

And they could perhaps call on friends or family members to brings a pickup truck and help them with the task. But there’s really no reason to when they could simply call a premium junk pick up service like Junk King.

Because if you’re going to have junk removed you might as well have premium junk removal service!

One simple call and our highly trained, friendly, and courteous team of junk haulers will arrive on time, as promised, to pick up junk and haul away whatever other unwanted rubbish and debris people may have. In fact, there is almost nothing that the professionals at Junk King can’t haul away for you, other than hazardous waste.

And the best part is that we do all the heavy lifting and loading!

But it gets even better: premium junk hauling service does not mean premium junk hauling prices.

World-Class Quality, World-Class Service, Fair and Transparent Pricing

That’s just how we do things here at Junk King. No extra charges, no hidden fees, no surprises. And we always provide you with a free, no-obligation estimate before we take your junk and rubbish.

Here’s the thing: some junk removal companies charge a flat fee which, really, isn’t very fair to the customer since one person with a small load of junk may end up paying as much as, say, a neighbor who has twice as much junk to dispose of.

And other junk haulers charge by the weight of your rubbish load. This can also be unequitable since your small load of masonry and concrete rubble may weigh more than your neighbor’s load of old cardboard and packing materials, which happens to take up four times more room than your load.

Junk King Washington DC doesn’t do any of those things, nor do we charge premium pricing. We simply charge by how much space your junk takes up in our truck.

And this same pricing policy is used with our versatile MINI Dumpster rentals.

Oh, and did we mention our free, no-obligation estimates?

This is just another way that we keep our pricing fair and transparent. You might say it comes as part of our “premium” service! And there are four different ways you can get an estimate from Junk King:

  1. Get it Online: Click the “Pricing” tab in the navigation above, scrolling to Pricing Estimator, then click the green “Launch Pricing Estimator” button
  2. Get it by Phone: Simply call us at 1-888-888-JUNK or live chat with our highly trained customer service representatives.
  3. Get it with a Text: Send a photo or two of your trash and junk items at 737-888-5865, and we’ll text you back with a free estimate.
  4. Get it On-Site: The most accurate way for us to assess the job and offer you a free, no-obligation estimate is immediately after we arrive on-site

A large part of understanding the premium junk hauling services from Junk King Washington DC is to know that you can trust us to always charge you a fair price for your junk removal. And it also means that you’ll never be unpleasantly surprised with a higher price after we finish the job.

How Junk King Washington DC Makes Furniture Removal A Breeze

How Junk King Washington DC Makes Furniture Removal A Breeze

Okay, so maybe you didn’t win the Virginia Lottery and decide to give your home a makeover. But perhaps that hefty tax refund finally showed up and you invested in a ton of new furniture. It’s been far too long and the stuff you own was getting shabby anyway.

Or it may just be that you’ve been replacing furniture pieces here and there over the years, but you never got around to getting rid of the old pieces.

We get it. Furniture removal isn’t the simplest or easiest home DIY project you can take on.

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

 

When Your Furniture Has Seen a Few Too Many Years Around the HouseWhen Your Furniture Has Seen a Few Too Many Years Around the House

No matter where you happen to live in the Capital region, whether that’s Davidsonville, Upper Marlboro, Brandywine, Hyattsville, or Annapolis, furniture removal is never really easy. And, in fact, it can be quite difficult.

When you consider that even solid wood dining room chairs weigh 25 pounds or more and are a bit awkward to pick up and carry. And that dining room table you’ve since the last time the (former) Washington Redskins won a Superbowl? Try anywhere between 180 to 250 pounds.

And we haven’t even considered the living room!

The average sofa? Somewhere between 280 to 350 pounds. And Dad’s favorite power recliner, the one with the motor so it goes back with the push of a button, weighs in at around 200 pounds or less.

Of course, it’s not just the weight of furniture pieces that makes old furniture removal so difficult. It’s the fact that so many furniture items are large, bulky, and difficult to get hold of. Which, of course, is why there are so many tips and tricks for moving them, not to mention an array of DIY moving tools and gear available.

But even with some muscular assistance and a few handy furniture dollies and carrying straps, furniture removal remains a job that is never simple, easy, or fast.

So, if you have more than a piece or two to get rid of, what are your other options?

No Truck, No Help – Big Problem!

It would be so much easier if you had a pickup truck and a couple of capable helpers at home to take care of this task for you.

But not everyone in the Washington DC area owns a pickup truck. And there are quite a few residents who not only do not have others living with them who can manage lifting furniture, but they are past the point of hefting sofas and other furniture items themselves.

So, the next best thing is to find someone you know who does own a truck and then hope they are able and willing to help you move your old furniture.

And, while that may be a viable option for some, it’s not going to be the case for many others.

The local waste management company quite likely has a bulky item pick-up service that you may be able to schedule with them. For example, the District of Columbia Department of Public Works (DPW) notes on their website that bulky item pickup is available for customers, but you have to call 311 first for an appointment and then,

“Put your bulk items out no earlier than 6:30 pm the day before and no later than 6 am on the day they are to be collected.”

Oh, and by the way, you could receive a sanitation violation ticket if your items are in the public space at any time other than during your collection appointment time. And remember: no more than seven items will be collected per appointment.

Really – there’s got to be an easier way…

One Call to Junk King Can Make Your Furniture Removal Job a BreezeJunk King Washington DC

We understand that some people don’t want to pay for something that feels like a simple DIY task. But we also understand that not all do-it-yourself jobs are easy. And the truth is that even disposing of old furniture yourself is going to incur some expense.

With gas at all-time highs and with rising landfill fees that are between $70 to almost $90 per ton at many facilities, it doesn’t take long for the costs to add up.

And you still have to do all the heavy lifting, loading, and unloading. Not to mention enjoying a long drive and an afternoon at the dump.

All of which is just a few of the reasons why calling a professional and reliable furniture removal firm is really your best option.

Choosing a trustworthy furniture removal company means much more than looking online and picking the one with the lowest prices. There are some other key factors to consider before you decide on the best company for your old furniture removal.

Besides, pricing is not only different for different companies, but the way they charge for their services varies among companies, as well.

For example, many junk removal companies only charge by weight, which means you’re going to pay far more for a few heavy pieces than you would for several lighter pieces that take up far more space in a truck. Not at Junk King! We only charge for how much space your junk – regardless of how heavy it – takes up in our trucks.

Not only that, but we also want you to know beforehand what your load is going to cost you. That’s why at Junk King we offer free estimates as a part of our service. You can get a free estimate online or by calling or texting us. And, if you prefer, our expert team will provide you with a free written estimate when they show up on time, as promised, at your home.

The bottom line is that you should never let the lowest price be the main deciding factor when choosing a furniture removal company. Customer service and evident professionalism are valuable features that can make an enormous difference in your furniture removal experience.

So, if you want to get real value for your money you want to be sure to hire an efficient and professional company with complimentary reviews and a solid reputation.

Junk King Washington DC Backyard Oasis

Creating The Perfect Backyard To Enjoy This Summer In The Washington DC Area

For those homeowners and renters who have one, a backyard can be a great oasis, domestic get-away, and a quiet refuge. For others, a backyard is the place to entertain, to play, and to enjoy the company of friends and family.

And, while everyone – including husbands and wives – may disagree about what constitutes a “perfect” backyard, every yard has the potential to become an inviting, relaxing, and rejuvenating outdoor space.

But, for many backyards, that means some serious work needs to be done.

When a Perfect Backyard Means Total Transformation

Okay, so maybe it doesn’t really need a complete makeover. And it’s not likely you’re going to get a visit from some HGTV makeover show anytime soon anyway. But the truth is that most residential backyards in the Capital region could use some spiffing up or even some major upgrades.

There are three major considerations when it comes to backyard makeovers, and the first one has to do primarily with resources.

Of course, most of us immediately think of money when the word “resources” in mentioned, but this can also involve time and labor. In other words, if you want to do some major improvements on your backyard you need to know if you have the time to get that done as well as the skills and physical capabilities or stamina.

We’re not all 20 or 30-somethings anymore. If you are, then this might be a walk in the park for you. But if you over 50 or 60, major landscaping and backyard revitalization work might be more than you want to take on by yourself.

And, along with the time, the labor, and the money it will require, you must have a plan – a design.

The most common mistake most homeowners often make when it comes to landscaping and transforming their outdoors spaces is to launch into the work without a clear vision of what they want the end result to look like. A major landscaping project with a settled design and a plan for making that design a reality is a recipe for a yard that will be far less than perfect!

Also, a perfect backyard is often much more than a beautiful lawn, gorgeous landscaping, and new fence. There are the structural elements and things called “hardscape.”

What is that? Well, here’s a good definition from the folks at The Spruce,

“The term ‘hardscape’ refers to all of the non-living elements in landscaping, such as a brick patio, a stone wall, or a wooden arbor. It is one of the two major subcategories of landscaping, the other being softscape. Softscape is all of the living and organic elements in a garden or on a lawn, such as trees, flowers, and grass.”

So, when you are designing your perfect backyard, be sure to include any ‘hardscape’ elements or structures that you feel would be needed in order to make it truly “perfect.”

Oh! And as far as cost goes, according to HomeAdvisor, the national average cost for a total backyard renovation runs about $15,000 to $50,000. However, for a modest backyard remodeling project, including new sod, bushes, and plants, you may be looking at around $5,000.

Which brings us to the second consideration: who’s gonna do all that work?

When the Perfect Backyard Becomes a DIY Project

It’s no secret that we live in a robustly “do-it-yourself” society here in the United States.

Big box stores like Lowe’s® and The Home Depot cater to this trend and there are tens of thousands of websites and online video channels dedicated to DIY, well, everything! And one of the most popular do-it-yourself projects for homeowners and others is the backyard renewal.

Unless one is totally averse to the work involved, or simply does not have the time or the ability to tackle a DIY project of this type and scope, then it is probably going to be a largely, if not completely, do-it-yourself job.

The other option, of course, is to hire a contractor or really good friend or relative to do it for you.

If you hire someone then your overall cost will be significantly higher than the same project would be when done by the homeowner. However, there is the valuable benefit of having the confidence and peace of mind that the job will be done professionally and in a timely fashion. And that is often well worth the cost involved for many people.

That being said, it’s quite likely that the typical homeowner will opt for the DIY route for anything that doesn’t absolutely require a professional contractor, such as pouring concrete pads and such. And even that can often be managed by many residents.

So, what kinds of landscape and hardscape elements can you include in your perfect backyard design?

Here’s a graphic we put together to inspire some ideas for you project:

JK Outdoor Landscaping Projects

In truth, the things you can do with a backyard are almost endless, from  a paver stone walkway to numerous flower bed ideas to possibly even choosing to build a deck.

Of course, the pursuit of a perfect backyard doesn’t end with the design, planning, digging, planting, and building. There is also the third and final consideration that we referred to at the start of this article, and that is the cleanup and removal of all the junk and debris.

 

When the Perfect Backyard Results in Not-So-Nice Piles of Waste and Debris

There is a fundamental truth that one cannot play in the dirt without making a mess. And this is just as true with backyard makeover work, except on an epic scale.

Depending on the scope of your project and the amount of digging and “deconstruction” that might occur, it is quite likely that you will end up generating several large piles of yard waste, debris, and other junk. And it is also likely that you may need to get rid of all this, let’s call it “yard waste,” a few times during the course of your work project.

This means having the resources necessary to pick up, load, transport, and properly dispose of all these materials and items, as well.

And some of these materials can be quite bulky and awkward to move, especially if your pre-transformation work required an old swing set removal or shed removal.

And, while you may have the wherewithal to carry out your own DIY backyard miracle, you may not have a suitable vehicle for hauling several cubic yards of old dirt, rocks, junk, and for construction debris removal. In addition, you may not be particularly keen on making multiple trips to the nearest waste transfer station or other disposal site you’ll need to go to.

So, what do you do? Search on your phone for “shed removal near me” or “swing set removal near me” in hopes of finding a reliable vendor?

You could go a bit wider in your search and type in something like “yard waste removal dc” or even just “Junk removal near me.” But you still have to decide who you can trust and who will pick up this type of junk.

Which is why Junk King Washington DC specializes in yard waste removal.

In fact, with Junk King, you have two options: you can make use of our expert, full-service yard waste removal service and have us come out as often as needed throughout the duration of your perfect backyard building project.

In addition, you can opt for using one of our versatile and user-friendly dumpster rentals. The Junk King MINI Dumpster rental can be parked close to where your project is taking place and you can fill it at your own pace as you complete the work on your perfect backyard.

Junk King Washington DC Estate Cleanout Services

How Estate Cleanout Services From Junk King Washington DC Can Help With Grieving

When a loved one passes away and leaves a home full of their belongings, the task of clearing out that home and cleaning it afterwards often falls on family members.

In many cases, it is the adult children of a parent who must deal with this task. And the burden of it can often weigh on them during a time of grief. For many, the pain is difficult enough without having to immerse themselves in a house full of old furniture, appliances, clothing, and assorted goods that now have to be disposed of somehow.

And, for some, this is a task that they truly would rather not have to do at all.

Which is why having professional estate cleanout specialists like Junk King Washington DC at hand can be so beneficial.

Estate Cleanout and Residential Junk Clean Up Services for Difficult Times

Along with the heirloom possessions, cherished belongings, and various other items that family members choose to keep, often the remaining goods such as furnishings and household odds and ends will be gotten rid of.

Occasionally this is done with an estate sale, however, many times the things left behind are not thought to have enough value to incur the costs of such an event.

It is in those more common situations that junk clean up and junk removal is required.

In other words, a significant part of the overall cleaning up process is getting all the unwanted or unneeded things removed and disposed of somehow. While this type of cleaning up is also needed for seniors still living at home, these assisted living cleanout services are often similar in how they are carried out.

And finding these types of special estate cleanout services shouldn’t be relegated to doing a search on your phone for “junk removal near me,” “junk removal DC,” or even “junk removal Washington DC.” While you can certainly go that route, the fact is that you still have to choose between all the various results you’ll receive.

The problem, too, is that not all junk removal services are created equal. This matters in any estate cleanout scenario, but it is especially important when the estate cleaning is the result of a loved one’s passing.

The last thing you need during a time of grieving is dealing with a less-than-professional and inconsiderate crew of “junk haulers” in your loved one’s home. Perhaps no other scenario necessitates the need for professional empathy and consideration than during a time of grieving over the loss of a loved one.

Which is why Junk King Washington DC specializes in estate cleanouts.

How Much Does an Estate Cleanout Cost?

Another aspect of taking care of estate cleanouts and hiring estate cleanout specialists is considering the cost involved.

It is often for this reason alone that many family members may choose to take on this work themselves. And, while this can certainly be done, it is not always feasible or even possible. For example, an estate cleanout is needed after seniors pass away. And this often means that those taking care of the estate afterwards are older adults, or the adult children of those that passed away.

In addition to the often intimidating labor involved, junk removal and disposal requires a vehicle capable of holding and transporting large amounts of debris, furniture, and so on.

Essentially, this means that for many of those who might be willing to do the job themselves, the obstacles to doing so are challenging or even insurmountable. So, the only feasible option is to hire a professional estate cleanup service.

And what is the cost for that kind of service?

For those living in neighborhoods such as Fairlawn, Twining, and Hillcrest, for example, the equivalent of roughly six full pickup truck loads – or one full Junk King truck – may cost as much as $768 for pickup and removal.

Of course, pricing will vary depending on the junk removal firm one chooses, how much is being removed, and where one lives in the Washington DC region. Also, keep in mind that some firms charge based on the weight of a load, while others even charge based on flat fees.

Junk King, however, believes that only charging customers by how much space their junk items take up in our trucks is the most economical and equitable pricing policy.

How To Get The Most Out Of Your Junk Removal Services

Junk removal can be a chore.

In fact, if you happen to have a large amount of junk, trash, and debris to dispose of, it can be an overwhelming chore. Or, perhaps it’s not volume so much as it’s the size of your junk: huge household appliances or large pieces of broken-down furniture, for example.

That’s the kind of junk removal work that makes you want to just grab your phone and search for “junk removal near me” and hire the cheapest one you can find.

Unfortunately, that’s almost never a good approach.

And it is an especially poor approach for properly taking care of certain types of junk disposal needs such as appliance removal or e-waste recycling. Maybe you have some old tools with motors that have burned up or even a junk stereo system that you held onto hoping it would be a collector’s item someday.

So, how do you go about getting the most out of quality junk removal services?

A Simple Guide on How to Be the “Perfect” Customer When It Comes to Junk RemovalOrganizing Your Junk For Removal Can Make The Process Faster and Easier

At Junk King Washington DC, we understand that it can challenging to choose a junk removal service. But we also know that you will never go wrong by relying on the number one rated junk removal service in the Washington DC area – Junk King.

But you can also optimize your experience with us while maximizing the benefits of hiring Junk King.

And here’s a brief “guide” to help you make that happen:

Step One: Get everything organized prior to setting up your appointment.

This can be things as simple as separating your junk into piles that you want to donate, those you want to sell, and those that you want Junk King to haul away for you.

Step Two: Make sure that everything is “boxed up.”

All the smaller junk items that you’ve collected during your cleanup, or some other junk-generating project can be placed in old boxes or crates you no longer want or need. And, for an even more efficient sorting process, you could employ the use of inexpensive box labels, if you like.

Step Three: Put it all in one central, easy-to-access location.

Of course, this will be much easier with smaller junk items and all those you’ve placed in boxes or crates. However, there may be larger and bulkier junk items such as unusable appliances or heavy equipment that you’d rather not move just to stage it with the rest of your junk. No worries! For those items, you can just point and watch.

Step Four: Group your items together in similar categories.

This could be something as simple as placing all your junk electronics in one box or to one side, old clothing in another, and so on. While this is certainly not required, it can help our junk hauling crew as they will be sorting everything back at our facility later. And we want to pack your junk in our truck so as to use as little space as possible. (Which simply saves you money, by the way!)

Step Five: Stand back and prepare to be amazed.

Our highly trained and courteous junk removal team will load and pack all your junk quickly, safely, and efficiently. They always employ the latest safety steps recommended for providing you with a touchless, no-contact junk removal experience.

Once our team is finished, they will sweep up after themselves and ensure that what you pay is what we quoted – with no extra fees or hidden charges.

Another Way to Get the Most Out of Your Junk Removal ServiceDumpster Rental

Some folks are much more of the DIY type, even when it comes to junk removal. And we get it.

But you can put down the rope tie and ratty old tarp you planned to use for covering up your multiple junk loads. At Junk King Washington DC, we have a better alternative for those who prefer to load their own junk and on their own schedule.

With our unique and user-friendly MINI Dumpster residential dumpster rental, you can accomplish that task but leave off the “making a dump run” part of the job.

No need to search the Internet for “small dumpster rental near me” or “dumpster rental Washington DC” when you can simply make a quick call to Junk King Washington DC and book one of our large capacity but easy access rental dumpsters.

Measuring just under eight feet wide and twelve feet long, the sides of this bright, red dumpster rental are only five feet high and features double swing-open doors for super-easy loading.

And can it take a load!

Our Junk King MINI Dumpster boasts a 12-cubic yard capacity, which is about the same amount of junk that you could fit into five full-size pickup truck beds. Another way to picture this is to imagine stacking six large washing machines side-by-side in two rows. The MINI Dumpster can easily hold that and still have room to spare.

Also, aside from the small footprint and ease of use, this steel debris bin comes with special wheels that prevent scratching and gouging damage to sidewalks, driveways, and asphalt.

So, when you have a large junk removal project and you need a few days to sort and load everything, like with a remodeling or landscaping project, a Junk King MINI Dumpster can be the perfect solution. Our expert team will bring the dumpster to you, place it where you want it, and come back in three days to pick it up – along with all your unwanted junk!

E-Waste Recycling What Can Be Recycled and How

E-Waste Recycling: What Can Be Recycled and How?

For most of us, recycling is something we do with aluminum cans, glass bottles, and paper. Oh… and cardboard and plastic.

Were it that simple.

The sad truth is that, while we do recycle all these types of waste products, there are many, many more items and materials that can be recycled. And, unfortunately, there are some materials that cannot be recycled, like many plastics that we tend to put into recycling bins anyway.

And, of the many other things that can be recycled but often are not, electronic waste – or e-waste – is a big category. The problem is that many of us are not familiar with e-waste, what constitutes e-waste, nor how to properly dispose of it so that it is recycled.

This is why Junk King Washington DC specializes in e-waste junk removal and e-waste recycling.

When Junk Removal Includes Electronic WasteWhen Junk Removal Includes Electronic Waste

Have you ever found yourself in the midst of a major spring cleaning project or other big house cleaning project, and realize you have more stuff to get rid of than you can manage on your own?

And, perhaps, some of those piles of junk include old TVs, computers, maybe a broken tablet, and even a junk stereo system. Throw in a broken Xbox or broken PlayStation game console and you’ve got a lot of e-waste. And you might not have even realized all this junk was considered “e-waste.”

So, you grab your phone and start searching for “junk removal near me” or, maybe, “TV recycling near me” or even for computer recycling if you have quite a few of those items laying around.

But you’re not likely to be searching for “e-waste recycling near me.”

In fact, it’s quite likely that, if you’re like most people, you probably didn’t even realize that e-waste recycling was really a thing.

Yet, it is. And now you know!

So, the next reasonable question would be, “How do I get my e-waste junk recycled?”

And we’re glad you asked.

The Exciting World of E-Waste RecyclingThe Exciting World of E-Waste Recycling

Okay, so maybe not so exciting to most of us. But it is actually a fascinating – and exploding – industry.

When you consider that just about every product that contains electronics has an end life and must be disposed of eventually, the potential for recycling these waste products is massive. And we’re not just talking about computers, TVs, and laptops. It can include everything electronic – even smartwatch and smartphone recycling.

And the volume of electronics just in the United States, not to mention the rest of the world, is huge and growing larger every year.

While accurate figures are difficult to pin down given that those numbers are not fixed or static, we still have a close estimate of the amount of e-waste that is generated in the United States and, of that, how much is actually recycled.

As recently as 2019, it was estimated that the U.S. produced 6.92 million tons of e-waste or about 46 pounds per person. Of all the nations in the world, only China produced more than we did at a whopping 10.13 million tons. However, when you consider that the United States represents only 4.25 percent of the world’s population compared to China’s 18.50 percent, we have really outdone ourselves!

More distressing is the fact that, according to one estimate, only 17 percent of electronic waste in the U.S. gets recycled.

But there are huge benefits to be had with increased e-waste recycling and Junk King Washington DC is ready to help you help our planet by hauling your e-waste and other junk for you.

What kind of benefits, you ask? Here’s a brief overview:

  • The value of the raw materials contained in the e-waste produced in the U.S. during 2019 was $7.49 billion. That’s right. We threw away billions of dollars’ worth of materials that could be used again.
  • Recycling 1 million laptops saves the energy equivalent to the electricity used by 3,657 U.S. homes in a year.
  • For every million cell phones that are recycled, 35,274 pounds of copper, 772 pounds of silver, 75 pounds of gold, and 33 pounds of palladium can be recovered.
  • One ton of circuit boards is estimated to contain 40 to 800 times more gold than one metric ton of ore. There is 30 to 40 times more copper in a ton of circuit boards that can be mined from one metric ton of ore.

Another Good Reason Why E-Waste Recycling in the Washington DC Region MattersAnother Good Reason Why E-Waste Recycling in the Washington DC Region Matters

Along with helping you with your e-waste recycling, Junk King Washington DC shares a very real concern for our environment – both globally and locally.

We have always been a genuinely green business and our junk disposal process successfully sees that 60 percent or more of all the junk we collect – including e-waste – is recycled. And while anything going into landfills is a terrible thing, some things are far worse than others. Like e-waste.

As one website pointed out,

“When e-waste is exposed to the heat, toxic chemicals are released into the air damaging the atmosphere; this is one of the biggest environmental impacts of e-waste. Those toxic materials can then seep into the groundwater, affecting both land and sea animals. Electronic waste can also contribute to air pollution.”

And, according to the United States’ Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), there are also problems with toxic materials leaching into the environment. Landfilling (and illegal dumping) can expose humans to elevated levels of contaminants such as lead, mercury, cadmium, and arsenic, which can lead to irreversible health effects, including cancers, miscarriages, neurological damage, and diminished IQs.

These are not issues that we want to see cropping up in our neighborhoods, nor anywhere else in the greater Washington DC area.

So, when it comes to properly getting rid of and disposing of your e-waste, Junk King Washington DC is standing by, ready to help.

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.
