What do we take?

Furniture Removal and Disposal

Here is are some examples of the furniture we can pick up from you:

  • Couches
  • Sofas
  • Sofa Beds
  • Mattresses
  • Chairs
  • Tables
  • Bookcases
  • Desks
  • File Cabinets
  • Armoires

We understand that it can be difficult to get rid of furniture when moving, for example. Most furniture pieces are heavy, bulky, and generally awkward to work with. And when you finally get them out of the house you still have to figure out what to do with them. Our team are experts at removing large items from your home… getting them down difficult stairs or around tight angles, WITHOUT damage to walls or doorways.

But when you have Junk King Albany haul off your old furniture, you’ll also be helping the environment as we work hard to recycle your old furniture. This is a good choice for reducing overall waste and landfill use. We also resell and donate items in good condition AND donate 50% of proceeds to charity.

Television Disposal & Recycling

With the advent of large flat-screen TVs, millions of Americans buy newer, bigger screens every year. This means that there are potentially millions of “old” screens. The problem is how to dispose of televisions that either don’t work or no one wants? And you’ll quickly remember just how HEAVY those old TV’s are!

One easy option is to call Junk King for your broken television disposal or old tv recycling. This is true whether we’re talking about old computer monitors, old CRT televisions, or large flat screen units. Junk King provides an efficient, safe, and eco-friendly old TV disposal service to make the whole process easy for you.

Appliance Removal

What types of appliances can we remove for you? Here’s a short list of items we can take:

  • Air Conditioners
  • Dishwashers/Trash Compactors
  • Refrigerators/Freezers
  • Lawnmowers
  • Stoves/Ovens/Microwaves
  • Water Heaters
  • Washing Machines/Dryers

Have you ever found yourself wondering how to get rid of an old appliance? Most likely, you were trying to arrange a trip to the landfill. But that fact is most large junk items that you might think need to be disposed of in a landfill can actually be recycled.

Your old household appliances, for example, are usually made of recyclable materials like steel, aluminum, glass, and plastics. In fact, almost all appliances can be recycled. When you call Junk King Albany, we can see to it that as much of your junk as possible is recycled, including refrigerators, ovens, and even air conditioning units!

Yard Waste Removal

Yard waste clean sometimes involves far more than just grass and leaf removal. It can also include everything you’ve cut, pruned, trimmed, or dug up out of your yard. Additionally, it might mean old fencing, gardening equipment, and other “non-organic” items.

And, when your yard makeover or clean up becomes a big project, you may pile up far more waste and debris than your green residential waste bin can manage.

Yard waste removal can be a seasonal process such as a spring clean up after a winter of general neglect and getting rid of things left outdoors. If you’re a gardener, spring and summer will likely leave you dealing with piles of empty bags, old planters, and even broken lawn furniture.

Taking all of this to the dump can be time-consuming and burdensome – and that’s even if you have a suitable vehicle for the job.

Hoarder Cleanouts

Residential cleanouts can be required for a variety of reasons such as a family member passing away or to prepare for a long-distance move. However, occasionally the need is due to an excessive accumulation of, well, everything!

Hoarding can be a problem for some people for a few reasons. Sometimes it is simply the result of habitually holding on to everything and this eventually results in a home that is so crowded with junk that it is not only hard to live with, it can be dangerous. And there are unfortunate individuals for whom hoarding is the result of a disorder.

Regardless of the reason, hoarding can become a real problem for occupants and, sometimes, even their neighbors.

Junk King uses teams of two professional junk removal experts for residential jobs, including hoarder cleanouts. While this makes for a perfect team to lift and load old furniture, appliances, and other large junk items, for hoarder cleanouts, a two-person crew might not be enough.

Not to worry! Junk King can make hoarder cleanouts a priority and divert additional resources to make it happen for you.

Of course, you don’t have to wait for things to get out of control in your home. You can call on Junk King to remove a little – or a lot – whenever you need it.

In addition to all these items, we also offer other residential junk removal services such as:

  • Estate Cleanouts
  • Hot Tub Disposal
  • E-Waste Disposal
  • Trash Removal
  • Mattress Disposal
  • Refrigerator Disposal & Recycling
  • Residential Construction Debris Removal
  • Garbage Removal

Where does it go?

Junk King recycles and reuses up to 60% of the items we take, keeping garbage out of the landfill and helps to keep our environment healthy. We also proudly donate 50% of reuse and resale proceeds to charity.

Commercial Junk Removal

Items We Take – Commercial Items

If you’re working in a commercial building and have tried to get rid of old office desks or an unwanted credenza, you’ve probably experienced the frustration of discovering that the waste management company won’t take them.

While some waste management providers can arrange for a special pick up, this usually comes with additional fees and making an appointment for the pickup. However, if you have large commercial junk removal needs frequently, this arrangement isn’t practical.

You need to find another way to get it done.

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

  1. You do it “in house”.
  2. You hire someone to do it.

But keep in mind that “doing it yourself” may not save you money. Even though you’re not paying an outside vendor to do it, your employee’s time is required for the job and time is money.

Every trip for junk disposal requires your or your employees to haul out the debris and junk, load it onto a truck or van, and then take it to a suitable facility for disposal. Once there, you have to unload it, and then return to your workplace.

In reality, the real cost is doubled because all that time spent loading, hauling, and dumping is time taken away from doing the work you or your employees are paid to do. So, every “dump run” includes loss of productivity and is costing you money.

The good news is that Junk King Albany specializes in providing efficient and cost-effective commercial junk removal services. And our junk removal specialist are training to break down large and bulking items. Since we charge by truck volume, not weight, this means even greater savings to you.

Commercial Equipment Removal

Every business owner knows that every decision involving expenditures needs to be carefully considered. And the choice for old equipment removal is no exception since hauling unwanted equipment and junk will involve some costs.

However, as is often the case, it is usually more cost-effective to outsource the job to a local junk hauling firm than taking it in-house. And the size or volume of most business junk makes hauling and removing it a challenge for many smaller businesses. Most commercial equipment is large, unwieldy, and heavy.

This is why the best approach is outsourcing the work to a professional firm like Junk King.

Office Furniture Removal

If your old office furniture pieces are too damaged to sell or donate, you may decide to simply dispose of it all. However, removing them can be much more work and trouble than most people want to do by themselves.

If you hire a professional firm like Junk King, our team will do all the heavy lifting and haul it all away for you. Choosing a professional and reliable office furniture removal service is the smart option.

Hiring Junk King to pick up your old office furniture is also smart because there’s no easy way to get rid of it yourself. We provide efficient, safe, and eco-friendly office furniture removal so you don’t need to worry about the disposal of your old furniture items.

The best part is that with Junk King, we also ensure that your old furniture items are either donated if the pieces are in good condition, or sent to a recycling facility so that your old furniture is disposed of in an eco-friendly way. AND we donate all resale and recycling proceeds to charity.

Construction Debris Removal

Construction contractors and project managers must closely manage every phase of a project. This can mean that all their processes are streamlined, and resources optimized. However, one task that is often overlooked is construction debris removal.

But debris removal is a function that should be managed and planned for, as well, if they want to maintain their goal of cost-effectiveness.

A great solution is to simply outsource the job to a reputable, professional hauling company like Junk King Albany. Like other commercial junk or debris removal tasks, there are tangible benefits of this approach that far outweigh those of doing it yourself.

These benefits include the convenience and the peace of mind that comes with knowing your vendor will do the job right and efficiently. And the costs are typically far less than using your own crew and having to take them off the job site to haul debris.

In addition to these services, Junk King San Diego also offers the following services:

Property Management Cleanouts

People are constantly moving in the U.S. For example, the Census Bureau tells us that almost 13 percent of renters move annually. What does this mean for property managers? That these vacated properties must have all the junk removed and the property cleaned before it can be rented again.

There’s nothing more frustrating than cleaning up someone else’s mess, and this is especially true when it’s an apartment, a house, or an office that is full of junk. And this can often be a DIRTY JOB! In fact, before a janitorial company can come to clean the building, all the abandoned junk has to be gotten rid of.

We can make property management a whole lot easier by providing you with quick and affordable junk removal services. Make Junk King your go-to partner for cleaning out homes, apartments, and other rental properties in-between tenants.

Foreclosure Cleanouts

Foreclosed residential properties often require that Realtors® and real estate professionals remove the junk abandoned by former homeowners. For a variety of reasons, many prior occupants feel little need to leave their foreclosed home completely empty when they leave the property.

What this means is that foreclosed properties are often left with trash, abandoned furniture, and other property sitting in them that the previous homeowners didn’t take with them. What is even more frustrating, especially for the real estate professionals, is that this task then falls on them or a representative of the bank or finance company that now holds the property. This is why we say that Junk King is your best choice when taking on a foreclosure cleanout.

As the leading business-to-business junk removal service in North America, Junk King provides expert real estate junk removal services to take care of the cleanout process for you. When you call Junk King for your foreclosure cleanout, that is one big task off your to-do list and it’s a big step toward having your property ready to sell or rent.

Commercial Scrap Metal Pick Up

Getting rid of large junk items can be difficult. This is especially true businesses that routinely dispose of items that are too large to throw into their commercial trash bin. If the items are hopelessly broken pieces of equipment, then reselling them is not an option.

This is especially true for commercial scrap metal.

Although many businesses may consider recycling metal junk, this can be challenging without knowing how to go about it or where to take it. Recycling scrap metal is a much more difficult and even a bit more dangerous task than recycling common commercial trash.

The good news is that Junk King can pick up and remove your scrap metal for you. We then take it to a local recycling facility so that your metal debris will become new raw materials for manufacturing, and by using the most environmentally friendly methods.

Junk King recycles more materials than other junk removal companies and our scrap metal recycling is available for any need, including:

  • Iron, steel, copper, aluminum, and brass scrap items
  • Building beams, wire, and most other metal construction debris
  • Appliances, plumbing fixtures, and other office renovation debris
  • Most other unwanted metal junk

AND we donate 50% of proceeds from scrap metal recycling to charity!

Storage Facility Cleanouts

It is an undeniable fact that in America on average, we have more personal belongings than citizens of any other nation. And, because we need to have a place for all our stuff, we’ve turned storage unit rentals into an almost 40-million-dollar industry in the U.S.

As many people know from watching reality TV programs, storage facility managers often discover large amounts of junk left behind by old tenants. Unfortunately, the task of getting rid of it all usually falls on them, as well.

One option is to stage an auction. However, after an auction, not everything is always sold and the property manager must still dispose of any items that went unsold at an auction, The reality is that self-storage facility owners or their managers must routinely deal with defaulted leases and abandoned junk.

The storage facility manager is left with the task of clearing out the abandoned units in order to put them back on the market. Junk King Albany can be your answer when you need storage facility junk removal. And we haul it away for one simple price while making everything fast and stress-free for you.

Large Trash Removal

If your trash removal company is not servicing your business often enough, or there are certain types of bulk trash items they won’t pick up, what do you do?

You could pay your employees to leave off from their normal jobs and haul trash, or do it yourself, but these are not cost-effective options. And this is why we offer our valet bulk trash removal service to help you out.

Junk King provides an efficient, safe, and eco-friendly trash removal service to make the entire process simple for you. Our experienced teams have the manpower to haul out your heavy trash items without damaging your facility on the way out. And we do all the heavy lifting – no need to carry items out to the curb or parking lot. Additionally, we’ll make sure that as many of your large trash items as possible are disposed of at a proper recycling facility.

Our professional and insured trash removal team will call 15 minutes before we show up at your shop or office. Once there we will give you a free estimate based on how much room your items take up in our truck. You just point and we haul your items into our junk removal trucks, with no hidden fees.

Event Waste Removal

Large outdoor (or even indoor) events such as company picnics, concerts, community fairs, and street markets can generate a great deal of waste. While renting commercial dumpsters can be a solution, they can also be costly and are usually quite unsightly. For most events, simply having numerous trash containers can suffice.

However, someone must still pick up and dispose of it all.

But, if you are not equipped with a suitable vehicle and available manpower, this can be a problem. So, the best way to manage event waste removal is to call in an expert.

Junk King Albany is standing by to come and take care of all your event waste removal needs with a simple phone call. Or, if you already know when you’ll need us, you can book in advance quickly and easily either online or by text.

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment.

The ASPCA’s mission, as stated by founder Henry Bergh in 1866, is “to provide effective means for the prevention of cruelty to animals throughout the United States.” https://www.aspca.org/

Homeward Bound Dog Rescue of New York

Homeward Bound rescues dogs that have been turned over to shelters, surrendered to us through our surrender program and rescued from puppy mills. Homeward Bound dogs live in a foster home until they are ready to move into your home. They eat, sleep and live with us and that way we have a better understanding of who they are. This foster arrangement allows the dogs to learn to live in a home, which gives us the opportunity to match families up with their dogs so a home really is forever!

Our “Director of Operations”, Willi was actually rescued from Homeward Bound 3 years ago by our owner, Carl. Read more about his story here.

Director of Operations, Willi

Willi is a senior member of our team at 11 years old. He was rescued by our owner at 8 years old from Homeward Bound Dog Rescue, one of our proudly sponsored charities.

Willi lived in Kentucky and was unfortunately attacked by a neighbor’s dog and lost his left eye. His owners could not pay for his surgery and veterinary expenses so they responsibly gave him up for adoption.

Homeward Bound Dog Rescue of New York stepped in, covered all his medical bills and brought him to New York, a no kill state. Our owner adopted him at his very first adoption clinic, actually the very day he arrived in New York.

Willi is the most loyal, loving and supportive animals you’ll ever meet. The only problem is he hates being alone, unless it is in the car. If Willi is not in the office working hard, you’ll find him riding the Junk King trucks with our crew!
