Contra Costa County Junk Hauling

Sometimes it takes a crane to clean a mess. That is what went down at the BART Concord station when a train jumped the tracks. Fortunately, there were no passengers on boards as this train was out of service. Still, it caused a major upheaval in a transportation system that is already “fragile.” BART scrambled to provide buses to fill in the gaps while other commuters call for their own rides home. Last year, a similar derailment cost BART one million dollars for the cleanup and repair effort. Luckily, you won’t need that kind of investment or heavy machinery to help with your next cleanup project. All you really need is the capable Junk King crew.


When it comes to junk hauling, Junk King are the experts. This company was founded back in 2008 with the goal of making junk hauling affordable and efficient. That result is an extremely successful national chain of Junk King franchises that are helping homeowners and businesses everyday with all their junk removal needs.

What do you want to get rid of? Take a tour around your property with an eye towards all those things that are sitting unused or broken. If you can’t throw something out in your trash, then you’re stuck with it. At least you were until Junk King came to Contra Costa County. Once you have identified what you want to have hauled away, call Junk King. They’ll set up a junk removal appointment usually within 24 hours. You might also score a same-day pickup.

At the appointed hour, a two-man Junk King crew will roll up in their huge moving truck. You’ll see right away how efficient this operation is. After all, anything that needed movers to come into your home will certainly need them to go out. Before the work starts, the Junk King crew will take a quick assessment of your junk to provide an estimate of the cost. That estimate will be based on how much space your junk will take up on the back of the truck. This is a single fee with no extras. When you agree to the price the crew will start to load your stuff. Remember, you don’t have to do any lifting. Leave your junk right where it is and let the Junk King crew take it away.

A final step will have the Junk King crew sweeping up the area where your junk once stood. No hassle junk hauling. That is the Junk King way.

Contra Cost County Junk Removal

Do you know who is handling your trash here in Contra Cost County? Actually, the answer to that question is up for grabs, as the Central Contra Costa Solid Waste Authority has put out the word that they are looking for a new company to pick up the $1 billion contract and handle all the hauling and garbage recycling across five Contra Costa County cities. A panel of trash-handling consultants (yes, they are thing) recommended the Arizona-based Republic Services or the Pacific Rim Recycling of Benicia. The final vote will come during the next authority board meeting. This is a public hearing and you’re welcome to toss in your opinion.

When you get right down to it, who picks up the garbage isn’t as important as the job getting done. We depend on that weekly garbage pickup and only noticed when a day is skipped because of the holidays. How fast does your garbage grow even with one skipped day? As efficient as the weekly garbage pickup is, there is only so much that they can do. For all those overflow items or pieces that are too big to fit into the garbage you might have to take matters into your own hands. Actually, you’d be better off putting those matters into the hands of Junk King. These are the pros that can provide skilled junk removal services.
