Fast, eco-friendly junk removal in Contra Costa
Meet the Owner
The launch of Junk King Contra Costa 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 is passionate about the environment and cares about the company’s potential for growth. He also enjoys providing a service to his community and providing meaningful job opportunities to people in the Bay Area.
Krishna had previously worked in the Hi Tech Silicon Valley Industry and was interested in the renewables and recycling sector. This led him to eventually become a member of Junk King where he could continue his interests and fully utilize his experience. Krishna opened his 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 has seen incredible success in his Contra Costa junk removal business. In just a short time, he started by cleaning up the region, purchasing truck & staff, attracting loyal customers, and providing jobs to several people.
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 Contra Costa Offers
People come to Junk King to get help solving problems they can’t easily solve themselves. We’ve been doing this for a long time now and have gotten pretty good at it too. We can take care of nearly any type of trash or waste from your house or business, from big items like furniture to smaller ones like yard waste. Other disposal services include appliance removal, hot tub disposal, electronics waste disposal and more. We also offer traditional 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.
Krishna states that in some cases, they can even help their clients with demolitions. If you want to remove all of the older cabinets in your kitchen to make room for a major home renovation, they 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
Krishna is also proud to have assembled a great team of employees who have been with the company since its 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 customer treatment is of utmost importance as a service company. 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.
The property had an ugly snap snap that was created by heavy equipment left behind by the previous owner. It took up a lot of room and was quite annoying to look at. Krishna and his team went to the extra effort to remove the heavy machinery in an efficient and timely manner after hiring Junk King of Alameda. 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 committed to recycling and green junk removal. 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 create meaningful employment opportunities. “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.
Krishna has enjoyed the opportunities to manage his own business since starting his Junk King franchise in 2016. He also enjoys meeting a lot of the clients and helping them to solve their problems.,” he says.

Residential Junk Removal
Items We Take – Residential Items
No matter where you live in the East Bay, whether that’s Livermore, Hayward, Concord, Antioch, or Walnut Creek, there comes a time when you need some junk removed from your home.
In fact, it’s probably safe to say that all homeowners and renters have junk to get rid of every once in a while. And it can be a challenging chore for most of us.
This is true for folks all over the Contra Costa area who have unwanted items they need to dispose of. But we’re not talking about trash or old magazines that have piled up in the den. Those items can usually be placed in the regular trash or in your recycling bins.
What we mean is junk. That would be large junk, piles of junk, or hard-to-move junk!
But how can folks get rid of that?

Commercial Junk Removal
What We Take – Commercial Items
Businesses need to get rid of junk, too.
In fact, one might say that commercial enterprises generate far more junk 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 and for profit, need junk removal services as well.
So, if you’re a business owner or a manager tasked with your company’s junk removal, you understand the frustration. Oftentimes, the junk you need to get rid of is far more than what you can fit into the commercial trash or recycling dumpsters you have available to you.
And, while your 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 might work for two or three times a year, but if you require commercial junk removal much more frequently, this arrangement isn’t practical.
Which means you need to find another solution.

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.
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:
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.
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 Contra Costa works hard to recycle up to 60 percent or more of everything we pick up from our customers.
Recyclable junk items include:
- Hot Tubs
- Old wood and lumber
- Televisions and Monitors
And much, much more…
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 Contra Costa, you pay only for the space you use – and with no hidden fees and a low minimum charge.
