Junk Removal Alameda

Fast, eco-friendly junk removal in Alameda

Meet the Owner

The launch of Junk King Alameda marks the expansion of a junk removal service in the Bay area. Krishna Vepa is excited to bring a junk hauling business to Alameda and Contra counties, both located in the East Bay of San Francisco. He bought a Junk King franchise because he cares about the environment, and he wanted to be involved in a business that would continue to grow. He also relishes the opportunity to provide a needed service to his community, while providing important and meaningful employment opportunities to people in the Bay Area.

Before joining Junk King, Krishna had been engaged in renewables and recycling in the Hi Tech Silicon Valley Industry. Junk King was therefore a perfect fit for his interests and experience. Krishna opened his Alameda Junk Removal Business in May of 2016, and has enjoyed every minute of owning and managing his own business and taking responsibility for his own destiny.

Krishna is proud of his Alameda junk removal business. In the short time that he has been in operation, he has grown his region, added truck and staff, won over a loyal clientele, and provided stable employment for several individuals.

From Silicon Valley to Junk Removal Service

Before starting up his Junk King franchise in 2016, Krishna spent several years working in corporate jobs within Silicon Valley. In his previous employment, he spent a lot of time recycling silicon wafers and other waste items from tech companies in the region. As he was looking for a job where he could command his own future and be his own boss, he found that the junk removal industry was a perfect fit for his interests and experience. His involvement in recycling and reclaiming technological waste translated perfectly into a wider junk removal business with a firm focus on recycling, donating, or repurposing the different types of waste that normally end up in the landfill.

Junk Removal Services that Junk King Alameda Offers

People come to Junk King to get help solving problems they can’t easily solve themselves. Krishna and his team can be asked to remove heavy furniture items, construction debris, foreclosure clean outs, yard waste, and virtually any other type of trash and waste that accumulates in our homes and businesses over years of accumulation. Other junk removal services include appliance removal, hot tub disposal, electronics waste disposal, trash removal, and mattress disposal. He says, “We put the customer at ease by removing their junk quickly, efficiently, and in a respectful manner.” An added benefit is that his pricing is the lowest in the markets he serves.

“We can help our customers dispose of appliances, we do office clean-outs, we do home clean-outs—virtually anything where somebody needs two able-bodied people that can come in and help you remove heavy, bulky items”

Krishna states. In some cases, Krishna and his team can even help their clients with some minor demolitions. If you want to remove all of the older cabinets in your kitchen to make room for a major home renovation, his team can help you with that.

“In reality, there is very little that we have not done,” he says. From helping people clean out vacant properties, to cleaning up an abandoned lot, Junk King of Alameda and Contra Costa counties can help businesses, homeowners, and other individuals remove virtually any type of junk that is not classified as toxic waste.

A Dedicated Focus to Legendary Customer Service

“As a junk removal crew and as a company, we are very, very customer-focused and customer-driven”, Krishna affirms. “We always try to excel in their expectations, and we go the extra mile to make sure that every customer is happy and satisfied when the job is done.”

Krishna is also proud to have assembled a great team of crew members who have been with the company from the very beginning. “My employees are the eyes and the ears of the company,” Krishna believes. “They are the face of the company with my customers, and without them, I have no business.” Krishna knows that as a service company, customer treatment is of utmost importance. All of his workers are strong and tough enough to move even the heaviest of junk items. At the same time, they are extremely respectful and friendly to every customer they service.

With one recent client, a previous owner of the property had left behind some extremely heavy equipment that took up an enormous amount of space and was an eyesore on the property. After hiring Junk King of Alameda, Krishna and his team went to the extra effort to remove the extremely heavy machinery in an efficient and timely manner. Even if the junk removal job requires a bit of ingenuity, Krishna and his team are committed to getting the job done right.

A Commitment to Green Junk Removal

All of the Junk King franchises are proud to honor a commitment to recycling and green junk removal services. Instead of simply taking your junk to the nearest dump, we make every effort to recycle, donate, or repurpose the items we pick up. We are proud to say that at least 60 percent of the junk items we take away stay out of area landfills.

“We definitely strive to recycle everything we pick up,” Krishna says. From used appliances, to old furniture, to potentially toxic e-waste items, Junk King of Alameda and Contra Costa counties has developed numerous relationships with donation centers, recycling businesses, thrift stores, and others who can help keep your junk out of the landfill. “We make sure everything goes to the right place,” Krishna states. “We regularly recycle appliances, metal items, carpets, mattresses, and more. In fact, instead of taking mattresses to landfills we have a working relationship with some of the largest mattress recyclers in the state of California.”

Junk Removal for Everyone

Krishna and his junk removal team offer both commercial and residential junk removal services to everyone in their service region. “What surprises me in this business is how our work touches every little nook and corner of our society,” Krishna says.

“We serve an extremely diverse community, offering our junk removal service to some of the roughest parts of this city and also some of the most upscale locations and homes in the area.”

Krishna is also proud of how his business has helped to create meaningful employment opportunities to people in the community. “We have provided job opportunities for a lot of people who otherwise would have struggled in finding employment. In that sense, our company is providing both an environmental service as well as helping people turn their lives around,” he says.

Since starting his Junk King franchise in 2016, Krishna has relished the opportunities to manage his own business. “I also enjoy meeting a lot of the clients and helping them to solve their problems,” he says.

If you are in need of any type of junk removal service in Alameda or Contra Costa counties, you can hire Junk King Alameda by calling 1-888-888-JUNK (5865) or booking online.

Residential Junk Removal

Items We Take – Residential Items

No matter where you live in the Alameda area, whether that’s Emeryville, Albany, San Leandro, Hayward, or Oakland, time goes by, it’s almost certain that you find that you need some junk removed from your home.

In fact, the reality is that every homeowner or renter has junk to get rid of every once in a while. And, for many of us, that can be a challenging and even difficult task.

One of the things we know to be true here at Junk King is that there are always folks in the Alameda area who have some unwanted items they need to dispose of. And it’s not just large amounts of trash or boxes of old magazines piled up in the den. Those types of things can usually be put into their regular trash or in your recycling bins.

No, we’re talking about junk!

That would be large junk, piles of junk, bulky and hard-to-move junk! But how can folks in Alameda County get rid of all that?

That’s why the professionals at Junk King Alameda specialize in taking just about every type of residential junk item you might have – including all the junk you need to get rid of right now!

With just a simple call to Junk King Alameda, we’ll come to your home and haul away anything and everything – from old furniture to large toys to those boxes of old magazines, books, and newspapers to every other type of household item.

In fact, we take just about everything and anything you need to get rid of (except for hazardous waste.)

And, best of all, we’re green. In other words, at Junk King we are genuinely eco-friendly.

In fact, as a company, Junk King has been committed to running a recycling-based business since the company was founded back in 2005. And at Junk King Alameda we continue that commitment here in the East Bay area.

As Junk King Alameda owner Krishna Vepa tells it,

“One of the things that Junk King prides itself with is that we recycle what we have. We are stewards of the environment. We make sure everything goes to the right place. We recycle appliances. We recycle metal. We recycle carpets and mattresses. In fact, instead of taking mattresses to landfills, we have ties with some of the largest mattress recyclers in the state of California, right here in Livermore and in Oakland, where we drop off mattresses.”

Another way of describing what we do is that we are much more than simply junk haulers. We are an integral part of the green solid waste removal process. Simply put, we are passionate about junk removal and eco-friendly junk disposal.

“You could say Junk King is not really junk hauling. What we’re doing is we work as an aggregator. We are a transport. We help repurpose and recycle. We actually segregate at source and then we decide where we recycle it, or we repurpose it.”

So, what kinds of things can we help you get rid of?

Here’s a brief overview of some of our residential junk removal services.

Yard Waste Removal

Cleaning up yard waste can often mean far more than just removing grass clippings and leaves. It can also mean hauling away everything else you’ve cut, pruned, trimmed, or dug up out of your yard. Along with that, there can be other debris such as leftover lumber, broken-down sheds or gazebos, old fencing, and even hot tubs!

Major outdoor cleanups or landscaping upgrades can often become big projects leaving you with far more yard waste and piles of debris than your residential recycling bin can manage.

Yard waste removal can be a seasonal chore, as well, such as cleaning up after a winter of general neglect or getting rid of things that have been left outdoors all summer. But taking all this yard waste to a landfill can take time and a great deal of work. Not to mention that you need a suitable vehicle for the job.

Which is why Junk King Alameda specializes in yard waste removal.

Television Disposal & Recycling

Did you get a new flat screen TV this year? Well, so did thousands of other Alameda County residents. And that means that there are potentially thousands of “old” TVs screens in our neighborhood that need to be gotten rid of.

But what’s the best way to dispose of televisions that either don’t work or no one wants? One easy option is to call Junk King Alameda for your old television disposal and recycling.

By the way, we can also pick up and dispose of your old computer monitors and old CRT televisions, as well as the large flat screen units. And the best part is that Junk King Alameda provides safe and environmentally friendly television disposal service to make the whole process easy for you.

Furniture Removal

It can be difficult to get rid of used furniture when you’re moving or replacing old pieces, for example. That’s because most furniture pieces are heavy, bulky, and generally hard to move. And when you finally get them out of the house you still have to figure out what to do with them.

But Junk King Alameda can come and haul your old furniture for you. You’ll not only free yourself from all that hard work and heavy lifting, you’ll also be helping the environment when you partner with us as we recycle your old furniture pieces.

Here are some of the types of old or unwanted furniture we can pick up from you:

  • Couches
  • Sofas
  • Chairs
  • Tables
  • Bookcases
  • Desks

Appliance Removal

It’s a sad fact of domestic life – household appliances get old, break down, and must be replaced.

And that means they have to be removed and disposed of, as well. The good news is that Junk King Alameda can handle that for you!

So, what do we take? Here’s a short list of some of the appliances can we remove for you:

  • Stoves/Ovens/Microwaves
  • Water Heaters
  • Washing Machines/Dryers

If you have ever found yourself wondering how to get rid of an old appliance you may have been considering a trip to the landfill. But did you know that most large junk items that you could dispose of in a landfill can actually be recycled?

That’s a fact!

Your old household appliances, for example, are almost all made of recyclable materials like steel, aluminum, glass, and plastics. Which means that they can be recycled. And when you call Junk King Alameda, we make sure that as much junk as possible is recycled – and that includes appliances!

Junk King Alameda, Recycling, and Customers First

Recycling is much more than something offered as an “add on” service at Junk King Alameda.

It’s what we do.

In fact, we recycle and reuse as much of everything we pick up every day – up to 60 percent or more. It is at the heart of our corporate mission, and we are passionately serious about being a green company.

And, in addition to being genuinely “green,” we are committed to serving our customers.

As owner Krishna Vepa has said,

“We have a dedicated crew of people. I’ve been doing this now for six years and several of my crew members who are with me, joined me from the beginning and they are the company. They are the eyes and the ears.

They are the front-facing guys with my customers who they service. And without them, I have no business. My guys are my business because we are a service company and they – I can very proudly tell you – they manage the business.”

That’s because we are, first and foremost, a customer service business and our customers come first. Krishna went on to say,

“We will do what it takes to make sure clients are happy. We focus on the customer, and we are very customer driven. And we try to exceed their expectations and we go the extra mile to make sure they’re happy and satisfied.”

In addition to all these services, we offer additional residential junk removal services such as:

Owner Krishna Vepa points out, too, that,

“Sometimes people have hot tubs that they want to remove from their backyards. We can take care of that. And, while we are not a general contractor, we do some demolitions.”

Commercial Junk Removal

What We Take – Commercial Items

Business owners need to get rid of junk, too.

While there are far more homes and residences in the United States than there are individual businesses, it so happens that commercial enterprises generate far more junk and waste each year than residential homeowners or renters.

In fact, according to the EPA, businesses and industry produce over 90 percent of the Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) in the United States.

And these enterprises, nonprofit, schools, churches, and other commercial and professional organizations all have a need for junk removal services.

That also means that, if you’re a business owner or a manager tasked with junk removal for your company or organization, you understand the frustration. For example, oftentimes the junk you need to get rid of is much more than can be fit into your available commercial trash or recycling dumpsters.

Although your commercial waste management provider can usually arrange for a special “bulk item” pick up, this service usually comes with additional fees. And you often must make an appointment for the pickup.

This may be feasible for a few times a year, but if you require commercial junk removal much more frequently, this arrangement isn’t practical nor cost-effective.

And that means you need a far better junk removal solution.

For most commercial junk disposal needs, there are just two options for getting rid of large junk or debris:

  1. You employees do it
  2. Or you hire someone else to do it

However, the reality is that “doing it yourself” may not save you money.

Even though you’re not paying a vendor to do the work, you’re paying your employees to do junk hauling work instead of the work they’ve been hired to do. So, there is a loss of productivity and time. And, as all owners and managers know, time is money.

In fact, your real cost is doubled because all that time spent loading, hauling, and dumping your company’s junk is time taken away from doing the actual work your employees are paid to do. In other words, every “dump run” means a loss of productivity, which costs the company money.

Which is why Junk King Alameda specializes in providing efficient and cost-effective commercial junk removal services. And we extend the same “customer first” service to our commercial clients as we do with our residential junk removal customers.

As Junk King Alameda owner, Krishna Vepa has shared,

“I enjoy meeting a lot of the clients and solving their problems. I enjoy hearing them out and just having a simple talk. I go out on the job and meet my clients and I love to hear their stories and see the smile on their faces after the job is done. And I have had many people compliment us on what a great crew we have.”

Here are a few of the commercial junk removal services that we provide for our customers:

Commercial Equipment Removal

Every business decision involves expenditures that need to be carefully considered. And old equipment removal is no exception because hauling and disposing of unwanted equipment will involve some costs.

Some large companies might have the resources to manage this task themselves. But the size or volume of the commercial equipment to be removed can make hauling and removing it a challenge for many smaller businesses.

Most commercial equipment is large, unwieldy, and heavy. Not to worry, however! You have a reliable option, which is to outsource the work to a professional firm like Junk King Alameda.

Construction Debris Removal

Construction contractors and project managers must manage every phase of a project, and that includes the task of construction debris removal.

While the typical approach is to have it done by laborers on site, a more professional solution is to outsource the job to a reputable, professional hauling company like Junk King Alameda. And, like other commercial junk or debris removal tasks, the benefits of this approach will far outweigh those of doing it yourself.

This includes benefits such as not having to take crew members off the job to spend their time cleaning and hauling junk and construction debris. In addition, the net cost is typically far less than paying your own crew to handle construction debris removal instead of the jobs they were hired to do.

Property Management Cleanouts

Managing commercial properties usually means getting vacant properties rented or leased as quickly as possible. And sometimes those vacant properties need to have trash, junk, and debris removed so the property can be cleaned before it can be rented again.

Unfortunately, not every former tenant leaves a commercial space clean and empty. And cleaning out empty properties such as commercial buildings, office spaces, and even rental houses and condominiums can be difficult.

Fortunately, Junk King Alameda can make this far easier for you with our efficient and affordable property management cleanout service. Let Junk King be your partner for cleaning out commercial properties in-between tenants.

Office Furniture Removal

Many times, you will find that those old office furniture pieces you want to get rid of are too damaged to sell or donate. In those situations, you may decide to simply dispose of them all.

But hauling it all out of your workplace can be far more work than most businesses want to take on.

The good news is that our professional team at Junk King Alameda can quickly and easily do all the heavy lifting and hauling for you. We offer efficient, affordable, and eco-friendly office furniture removal so you don’t need to worry about how to dispose of your old furniture items.

And the best part is that we make sure your old furniture is donated whenever possible or sent to a recycling facility to be disposed of in an environmentally responsible way.

Storage Facility Cleanouts

Self-storage facility managers often end up with storage units that still have large amounts of junk in them that were left by old tenants. And, unfortunately, the task of clearing them out and getting rid of it all usually falls on them.

While they can sometimes hold an auction, even then the property manager still has to dispose of anything that isn’t sold. So, it’s not unusual for storage facility owners and managers to deal with abandoned junk.

But it doesn’t have to be that way.

Junk King Alameda can quickly and easily take care of storage facility cleanouts. Best of all, we haul it away for one simple price, while making everything easy and stress-free for you

Commercial Scrap Metal Pick Up

Your business or workplace might want to recycle some large junk metal items, but that can be difficult if you don’t know how to go about it or where to take it. The truth is that recycling large scrap metal is a much more challenging task than recycling common commercial trash.

It’s a bit more involved than recycling aluminum beverage cans, for example!

But it’s not a problem when you have Junk King Alameda pick up and remove your scrap metal for you. And we take it to local recycling facilities so that your junk metal debris can be transformed into new materials for manufacturing new products.

In fact, Junk King recycles more junk material than all other junk removal companies and our scrap pick up services are available for any junk metal disposal needs.

And Much, Much More!

As with our residential junk removal services, we can take just about any type of junk, debris, or waste item and material other than those that are considered hazardous.

As Junk King Alameda owner Krishna Vepa point out,

“We help people dispose of appliances. We do office cleanouts. We do home cleanouts – anything where somebody needs two able-bodied people that come in and help remove bulky items. We help Realtors clean up when people are moving out of homes.”

We want it to always be easy and simple to work with Junk King Alameda, and we continue to work hard at keeping it that way.

And we know that you want to know how much it’s going to cost.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does junk removal work at Junk King?

Our junk removal services are provided for both residential and commercial customers.

We offer full-service junk removal, where our 2-person teams come into your home or office, carry your unwanted items outside, load it into a truck, and then haul it away. This option is similar to hiring movers, except that your junk goes away forever instead of going to a new address.

What kinds of junk can you recycle?

The good news is that almost every type of junk item that gets tossed out or disposed of can be reused, repurposed, or recycled. And Junk King Alameda works hard to recycle up to 60 percent or more of everything we pick up from our customers.

Recyclable junk items include:

  • Mattresses
  • Hot Tubs
  • Refrigerators
  • Old wood and lumber
  • Furniture
  • Appliances
  • Televisions and Monitors
  • E-Waste

And much, much more…

Are there any junk items you don’t take?

While Junk King will pick up and remove almost any type of unwanted junk, we are not legally authorized to pick up hazardous waste materials. Certain household items are considered hazardous waste and typically fall into one of four categories:

  1. Corrosive
  2. Explosive
  3. Flammable
  4. Poisonous

Examples include several common cleaning products, motor oil and most other automotive fluids, pesticides, herbicides, varnishes, and paints. All these items are classified by the EPA as household hazardous waste, or HHW, and should never be placed in trash bins or dumpsters.

If you need to dispose of these types of items, you should contact your local waste management provider or municipal agencies for disposal guidance.

Does it cost more for heavy junk items?

Fair and transparent pricing is a hallmark of Junk King.

And that means that, unlike most of our competitors, we only charge for the space your junk takes up in our trucks – not by weight. This means that if your junk takes up half a truck load you pay the same whether it’s a load of lightweight clothes and bedding, or heavy concrete rubble and masonry.

Our pricing model is the same no matter what your junk items consist of. At Junk King Alameda, you pay only for the space you use – and with no hidden fees and a low minimum charge.
