If you find yourself having to dispose of a large amount of junk, trash, furniture or yard debris you know it can be difficult to work with. Now there's an option.

The problem with having a large amount of trash or debris is where to put it all until you can haul it away. It's usually not very efficient or cost-effective to make multiple runs to the county dump or landfill.

Winter Means Pruning And Hauling Yard Waste

Posted by Junk King on Dec 15, 2016 6:00:00 AM

When most people think of pruning they think spring - or summer! But winter is an ideal time for pruning a wide variety of plants in your yard.


Late winter is a good time for pruning in many regions. In fact, one of the safest times to prune non-Spring blooming plants is in the dead of winter, when the plants are dormant. Pruning during this dormant season benefits many trees and shrubs because it provides them with extra root and energy reserves to support new growth on the remaining branches.

Well-pruned plants will produce more flowers or fruit. Careful winter pruning also helps trees and shrubs ward off pests and diseases, so they will require less care in the spring and summer. Pruning will also produce piles of yard waste and debris that will need to be removed before any rains come, as well.
