Spring has arrived, and it’s time to open all of those windows, let the fresh air in, and begin your spring cleaning! I’m sure you have many things on your list for spring cleaning; cleaning the windows, de-cluttering and organizing, cleaning out the shed and garage, and the list goes on! Regardless of what is on your list, if you are like most people, one of the first things to do is to remove all of your accumulated junk.
Instead of busting your back hauling all that junk away to the dump, consider hiring a full service junk removal company to come in and take care of all that back busting work for you! Keep in mind, that most credible companies also recycle or donate a certain percentage of the junk that they remove from client’s homes. Bumble Junk, a local junk removal company, has saved over 125,000 lbs from going to local landfills, over the past 16 months.
When you are hiring a junk removal company, you will want to look for the following:
- You will be letting the company into your home, so you want to be sure that you hire a company that is clean and organized. They should show up on time, in a branded work truck, and wearing a company uniform.
- Confirm that there are no hidden fees involved.
- Work with a company that cares about you. They should be respectful of you, your home, and your property.
- Make sure the company is eco-friendly. There are so many items that can be recycled and donated today that it makes no sense to toss them. Here is a small statistic about fast-filling landfills.
Landfill statistics show that in 1979, approximately 18,500 landfills were available to receive trash all across the United States. In 1990, just 11 years later, this number was drastically decreased by almost 60%. According to the landfill statistics given by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), in 1988 there were 7,924 landfills available in the US. In 2006, there were only 1,754 left. This continued decrease in available landfill space is relative to the amount of trash that has been increasing in great proportions (www.ecoevaluator.com).
Take advantage of the many services offered by local companies to assist in accomplishing your goals of spring cleaning. No matter what you’re looking for, whether it’s a plumber, a professional organizer, or a painter, the four things you should look for in a professional company will remain the same. Stick to them and you should have a great time getting your house in order and starting off spring on the right foot!
