Know Your Service Area: Junk Removal in Speedway Indiana
If you live in or near Speedway, Indiana and have items such as old appliances, out of date furniture or other random clutter taking up space then it may be time to (properly) get rid of the old to make room for the new! Maybe you’ve been hanging onto items thinking “someday I’ll use this” and now it’s years later and all your items have been good for are collecting dust and holding other unwanted items. Now is the time to take charge and clear some space by utilizing this guide! Speedway and its surrounding areas have a number of outlets for your unwanted items and more importantly, we have the company that can help you move all those items from Point A to Point B without necessarily sending all of them to the dump!
At Fire Dawgs, we make an earnest effort to find alternative uses for the items that we are called to remove and haul away. Currently, we are able to Reuse, Recycle or Donate between 50-60% of the items that we come across and are able to do so by partnering with a number of recycling and donations centers. Some of those organizations are listed below:

Of course instead of contacting companies individually you can also work with a junk removal company, like Fire Dawgs, who will pick up everything and distribute accordingly taking a majority of the legwork out from under you. Fire Dawgs makes sure items that can be recycled are recycled, items that can be donated are donated and then items that need to just be disposed of are disposed of. The only items a junk removal company cannot take off your hands are those that are hazardous or toxic. These items must be taken to a proper collection facility by the customer, like the Tox Dump mentioned above.
