Hit Zero Waste with Junk Removal

In the coming months and years, you’ll be hearing the words “zero waste” a lot as it relates to sustainability policies. This is a concept whereby a city will strive to recycle or repurpose the majority of all the waste they collect. This goes way beyond the typical recycling programs that includes plastics, papers and aluminum cans. Zero waste also includes turning food scraps into organic compost or even fuel. Although most cities won’t hit 100% zero waste, even getting to 60 or 70 percent have a huge positive impact on the environment.


You can start thinking about how to make your home a zero waste home. Beyond your kitchen recycling, you might want to consider using Junk King for the removal of your bigger objects. Junk King has been a zero waste kind of company from the beginning of their operations. They can greatly reduce your carbon footprint without you lifting a finger.

Junk King is dedicated to eco-friendly disposal policies. That means dropping something off at either a recycling facility or a charitable organization. You don’t have to concern yourself with sorting or selecting which item should go where. The Junk King teams have all been trained to handle that task. They’ve also been trained in all the proper lifting techniques. That means you can finally get rid of the heavy stuff in your home that will take at least two movers to lift. That includes anything that is upstairs, too!

Before the Junk King team arrives, you’ll want to make a final determination as to what you want to get rid of. You’ll show the crew all those pieces and they’ll provide you with an estimate that is based on how much room your junk will fill on the back of the truck. It could be a third, a quarter, half or the whole truck. You’ll know that price before work begins and it’s not going to chance. What happens if your junk takes up more room? You’ll still be paying that original estimate!

They don’t want to take up a lot of your time. Are you ready to hit zero waste in your home? Junk King can get you there!

Garbage Removal Contra Costa CA

There are a lot of things that the city of Contra Costa does for its residents that nobody ever notices. It’s only the things like potholes, broken streetlights and missed garbage pickups do people pay attention to. With regard to the garbage removal, like most other cities, the Contra Costa municipal workers have to follow strict guidelines. They can only take away the things that are in your trashcan. Although you’re supposed to have the can on the street, the workers aren’t above moving the can down from the sidewalk if it is blocked. However, if you want to get rid of a sofa, TV or refrigerator, then the city might not be much help. There just won’t be room on the truck! Instead, for those big garbage removal jobs you’ll want to bring in the team from Junk King. They’ll get that job done right every time!


Junk King will provide a moving crew and huge truck for every junk removal session. That’s what you would get if the garbage workers took care of the job but the big difference with Junk King is that you don’t have to bring anything down from the house. All your heavy stuff can stay right where it is. The team from Junk King will pick it up from its current location even if that means climbing stairs!

The other benefit with hiring Junk King is that they are going to make sure your junk is properly disposed off. The garbage that is collect by the city goes straight to the landfill. That’s not going to be good for the environment. With Junk King on the job, your unwanted items have the potential to be repurposed through drop offs at charities or recycling centers. Junk King is happy to avoid the landfills all together!

An added benefit of all that recycling is the lower cost. Landfills charge heavy dumping fees that are usually by the pound. Junk King’s pricing structure involves estimating how much space your junk will fill on the back of the truck. It’s all about volume and that is the fairest way to price out this type of service. For those times when your garbage removal is too much for the city to handle, you can count on Junk King.
