Make the 4th Your Independence Day from Junk In Contra Costa

Unlike some other parts of the county, the use of personal fireworks is banded in Contra Costa because of the ongoing drought conditions. That is probably just was well because when it comes to setting off fireworks, it is probably best to leave it to the pros. Here in Contra Costa, there are actually quite a few Independence Day celebrations to pick from. In the city of Martinez, fireworks will light up the sky at the Martinez Shoreline Park. In Walnut Creek, there will be a free concert along with fireworks immediately following. The Annual Cityhood Celebration takes place in Oakley at the Freedom High School. There will be food vendors, bounce houses and of course the big fireworks extravaganza.


Of course, you could decide to stick closer to home too because it promises to be a hot weekend. You might enjoy staying indoors especially if you clear out some of the clutter that has been accumulating over the last several months (or years!). It is amazing how the entire dynamic of a home can change when all that unwanted junk is removed from your closets, garage and spare room. If this sounds like way too much work for a holiday weekend, have no fear; Junk King is standing by to lend a hand or two or four!

Fight The Drought In Contra Costa – Get More Efficient Appliances

Believe it or not, this is actually the fourth year of California’s drought. Yes, the water has been drying up for quite some time. Local governments are springing into action to turn back the tide. That means water conservation across the board. Translation: Water restrictions. This summer, local residents will be allotted 13 units of water for each month. That is roughly 748 gallons per unit. Any amount of usage that goes over that amount will result in a penalty that will show up on your next water bill.


A good place to start conserving water is with the appliances that use water such as your dishwasher and washing machine. If they’ve been running for several years, they could actually be wasting water simply because of an inefficient design. This is why you should think about replacing those old appliances with new Energy Star rated models. Once you’ve found the new appliance, you’ll need to get rid of the old one in a responsible manner. That can happen with a single call to Junk King.

Junk King will send out a two-man moving crew to take care of the lifting and loading of those heavy machines. This is not a job you want to take on and put your back at risk. You might not even have a truck that can be used for the removal. Junk King will provide that truck and the manpower so you won’t have to lift a finger.

While the crew is at your home, you can also put them to work removing the rest of your unwanted items. That can include any clutter you have in your closets or garage. Imagine how great it will be to finally reclaim all that storage space. There is no reason to hold onto things that are broken or worn out. Give them all to Junk King.

Along with getting back your storage space, you’ll also be able to claim your carbon footprint has been reduced. That is because Junk King will go the extra mile to recycle or donate the bulk of what they collect from your home. That includes those old appliances. This is all part of the junk removal packaged and is covered by the single, low rate Junk King charges. Whether you want to get rid of old appliances or household clutter, Junk King is the best call to make.
