Junk Removal and COVID-19: What You Need to Know

Junk Removal and COVID-19: What You Need to Know


Medical services and utilities are natural candidates for 'essential business functions' in light of the COVID-19 crisis, but what about junk removal?

Turns out that, yes, junk removal really is an essential business function. And, if you are stuck with a load of unwanted junk or need to dispose of some excessive quantities of garbage or trash, that's good news.

Junk Removal is Essential 

Waste, trash and junk removal truly is an essential function and service. With the ongoing issues surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and multiple states and counties placing stay-at-home and "shelter-in-place" orders, it's even more critical.

If you wanted to take your own junk to a disposal facility, odds are great that you wouldn't be able to that now and for the near-term. More importantly, even if you could, it probably wouldn't be the wisest option considering the circumstances and the coronavirus threat.

Fortunately, you don't have to.

Most government entities recognize that the safe and efficient removal and disposal of waste, junk and debris is an essential function, especially in light of the current COVID-19 outbreak.

In fact, an official document released by the state of California list the professions considered “Essential Critical Infrastructure Workers”  and includes "truck drivers who haul hazardous and waste materials to support critical infrastructure, capabilities, functions, and services"  in order "to ensure the effective removal, storage, and disposal of solid waste."



The Department of Homeland Security has also issued guidance on workers who are essential to infrastructure. These include garbage collection and junk removal.

What this means for you is that Junk King is deemed an "Essential Business" that provides critical infrastructure support. 

Do You Have Junk? Then It's Essential to Get It Removed

If you're one of those fortunate folks who live in a bucolic and pastoral setting that is far removed from town - and waste management services - you may find yourself needing some help. Whether it's your household and property garbage and waste, or some other types of junk that has piled up, you're likely not going to be removing it yourself. 

However, it's essential to have these materials properly removed, hauled off, and disposed of.

Another consideration is trying to maintain a clean and virus and germ "free" home. A key part of this is getting rid of household garbage and other junk as soon and often as possible.

With all of the "stay at home" directives, many families are spending more time at home and some of these family members are sick. While, the used tissues, napkins and wipes might be properly disposed of at home, they can still be hosting still-active colonies of bacteria or viruses.




And keep in mind that the coronavirus COVID-19 is not the only potentially deadly virus to be concerned about. 

We are still in the midst of the annual flu season and, while the world is focused on COVID-19, tens of thousands of people are still catching the flu, not to mention colds and other contagious ills.

Because of this, it's important to remove all garbage, trash and waste products from your home on a regular basis. You should either dispose of it in your home's municipal waste container or, if your garbage doesn't get picked up by a waste management service, you need to get rid of it yourself.

And, if that's a challenge today, know that you have a professional option with Junk King.
