Know Your Service Area: Junk Removal in Zionsville Indiana
If you live in or near Zionsville, Indiana and are looking to downsize, move or just plain get rid of some items then it may be time to consider what you are going to do with all of your excess items! If you have an old hot tub or trampoline dying a slow death in your backyard or an attic full of clutter that you no longer need then this guide is for you! Trying to cram your recycling bin or small trash can full of as many items as you can may get you part of the way but if those bins are overflowing and you still have a long way to go, then it may be time to consider some alternatives. Zionsville and its surrounding areas have a number of outlets for your unwanted items and more importantly, we have the company that can help you get 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.

They take collections the first Saturday of each month from 9am-2pm. You can visit here to see a list of materials as well as the amount of materials accepted.
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.
