Did you look at Lowe's site today? Toward the bottom of homepage there is a rebate offer for free appliance delivery & old appliance removal for purchases over $397.00. Hope this helps.
Is there any money in rubbish removals and scrap metal
does anyone do it and does anyone have an idea of what id earn on a average week mon – fri 8-6.
Where is the best place to take it.
I used to do demolition. I've also done junk removal because I owned 2 pick up trucks that sit around doing nothing most of the time. Here's what I would look for:
1 – people giving away perfectly good appliances such as washers/dryers, fridges, etc. I would pick them up for free and then post them for sale on the internet classified ad websites the same day I picked them up. I would offer them for sale at a really good price and just leave them on my truck until somebody responded to the ad, which was usually within an hour because I was offering to deliver them also. For a good washer/dryer set I could make $150 (total time, 3 hours).
2 – There is a good market for scrap aluminum, copper, brass and other metals right now. For example, I recycled an old copper radiator from my old 1981 Ford van and they gave me $15 at the scrap yard for it.
There is some good money to be made in junk removal and recycling if you know what to look for. For example, don't pick up used appliances that are in bad shape or don't work. You'll never re-sell them and the metal content is worth nothing at the scarp yard.
I can tell you a lot more if you want to email me. – Cheers.
I live in apartment. They're fairly nice and expensive. However, one of the neighbors must be a heavy smoker, because my apartment fills with the smell of cigarette smoke every single day. It's especially bad in the kitchen and if you turn on the vent fan above the stove, it smells terrible! It also comes through the fan in the bathroom. The smoke is so bad and is triggering headaches in me nearly every single night (I'm prone to cluster headaches and cigarette smoke is a trigger for me). It's also making my throat sore. I know these are the effects of the smoke because I lived with family that smoked for 17 years. Anyway, what can I do about this? I live in Washington state. I know we just passed strict anti-smoking laws, but I don't think anything is mentioned about cases like this. The apartment staff is incredibly unhelpful. It's becoming unbearable to be in my own apartment! I can't afford to move either and am still locked in to a 10 month lease. Does anyone have any suggestions?
To iritadragon: I'm not having issues with my neighbor. I'm not the only one who has noticed the cigarette smoke. My in-laws first pointed it out to me when I came back from a trip to California and they were watching out apartment. This isn't in my head. Ultimately, I wouldn't care if I could smell the cigarette smoke as long as I didn't have the physical problems that came along with it. And it isn't psychological. My throat is sore. I get headaches. Is it so inconceivable that the toxic chemicals in cigarettes could cause these things? Cigarettes KILL people. Yet if I get a sore throat or headache from second hand smoke, it must be psychological? That's just silly.
Ultimately, I don't even know which neighbor it is. It could be the guy below me which would make sense because the way the apartment is set up. It doesn't have very good insulation and it could very likely have a problem with the fans. I smell the dryer sheets of my neigbhors dryer when they do laundry as well.
Maybe try calling this number to start with and possibly they can direct you. The venting system in your complex doesn't seem to be properly installed for each individual unit.
