Use Junk King For Your Old Dishwasher Removal

Have you ever had a dishwasher flood in your kitchen? That is a clear indication that it might be time to replace your dishwasher.  Nothing lasts forever especially when the warranty has expired! If you need to replace your old dishwasher, then you also need to arrange to have it moved safely from your kitchen. That is the perfect job to turn over to Junk King Contra Costa.

Unhook First

Before a dishwasher can be removed it has to be unhooked first from the plumbing. This is not complicated when you have experience and the right tools. That is exactly what the crew from Junk King will show up with. The Junk King movers take care of this kind of task on a daily basis. Not only will they be able to help you dishwasher the right way but they will also find a clear path from the kitchen to the front door. They want to make sure that walls and other furniture won’t be damaged on the way out.

If all you were getting rid of was your old dishwasher, then you would be paying the low end of the price scale for Junk King. That is because that price scale is based on how much space your unwanted items take up on the back of the truck. The less space that is used, the less you will be paying. You will always know what the prices before the work begins. This means that you can also add things to the truck in addition to your old dishwasher. Take full advantage of the moving crew and that truck space to get rid of all of your unwanted furniture and other clutter items.

You can schedule your dishwasher removal for the same day that you knew dishwasher is being dropped off. That way you won’t have to skip washing the dishes!

Junk King Contra Costa And Refrigerator Disposal – A Cool Combo

refrigerator disposal contra costa

Every year in places like Antioch, San Leandro, Byron, and Livermore, people have old refrigerators that have died, or that have been replaced by new units. 

Unlike elephants, these beasts don’t have a secret graveyard to go to.

Instead, they too often end up in a landfill. Or the side of the road. But, more often than not, they end up in a garage, a shed, or even in a corner of the back porch, taking up space and collecting dust and rust!

But that doesn’t need to be the case.

When It’s Time for Refrigerator Disposal

Interesting fact: many refrigerators can weigh between 200 and 300 pounds.

If you have ever had to move one, you already know that large, household appliances of any type can be heavy, bulky, and hard to move. From average sized microwave ovens weighing in at over 50 pounds to new, oversized refrigerator-freezer units that boast a bodyweight of over 400 pounds, these are not one-person moving jobs.

So, why do it at all?

Because they all die eventually and must be disposed of. And there are few other reasons that old machines must go. Let’s use refrigerators as an example since that’s what we’re driving at anyway.

If the machine has been in the home for quite a few years, like more than 10, and the kitchen is being remodeled, then new kitchen appliances are usually coming in and this often includes a new refrigerator. 

Then there is the issue of a working, but malfunctioning refrigerator

A common symptom is noise. If the aging refrigerator begins to emit gurgling or grinding noises on a regular basis, it’s a good bet that something is not right. Or maybe it’s not noise but uneven or inconsistent cooling. 

One family lived for years with an aging fridge that randomly froze items in the cooling side of the unit. They finally got rid of it when they were selling their home and decided not to include a faulty refrigerator as part of the package. 

Repairing it earlier may have been an option but, after more than 10 years, it was probably better to replace it anyway. 

However, when they did decide to dispose of it, the task became a chore, which became a trial. After getting it out of the house (barely!) and down 10 steps from the front door, and loading it in a friend’s truck, they hauled it to the local waste transfer station.

Once there, they were told that it had to be taken to a specific location at the facility for appliances and pay a $47 disposal fee.

And they had to do all the work. 

The moral of that true story is that, regardless of why you need to dispose of your old refrigerator, you have other options besides doing it yourself.

>>> [Infographic] What You Need to Know About Refrigerator Disposal and Recycling <<<

Your (Best) Option for Refrigerator Disposal Isn’t DIY

While we understand the motivation behind wanting to do so, it remains that removing, hauling, and disposing of your own refrigerator is not a simple DIY project.

However, if you’re still thinking that “doing-it-yourself” is the way to go, you’re going to need a bit of guidance. So, with that in mind, we created this handy checklist to guide you through the process:

Things to Consider for Refrigerator Disposal

There are a few major problems to consider when moving major appliances like refrigerators. For starters, they can fall on you, tear up your floors and your walls, and possibly expose you to refrigerants such as Freon.

Not only is it a difficult, labor-intensive, and even dangerous task, it’s not even necessary since you can have the services of Junk King Contra Costa with a simple phone call.

However, there are also transportation and disposal issues to address.

It’s probably pretty apparent that you won’t be hauling a 350 pound side-by-side refrigerator in the back seat of any family car or even SUV. 

Most likely you will need to have a truck of some kind. It may be possible to use a cargo van or even a small pickup, but what if you don’t own one of these vehicles? Assuming you can borrow or rent a truck, you still have to consider where you’ll take it once you manage to get it in or on a truck.

As we noted in a previous blog article, there is only a short list of waste facilities in Contra Costa County, for example, that will accept old, working and non-working appliances. However, because not all of these can be reused, the county notes that,

“With the continuous advances of technology many appliances become obsolete. The cost of handing, transporting, repairing and/or recycling often exceeds the value of these items; as a result, many of these items require a special disposal fee.”

As we stressed already, DIY refrigerator disposal isn’t really that great of an alternative, especially when you realize that your best option is not only affordable, but is also easy, safe, and eco-friendly!

How To Create More Space In Your Apartment

One of the ways to create the feeling of more space in the room is to hang a large mirror on the wall. It doesn’t change the square footage but the perception of the size of the room. Living in an apartment means you have to “work” with the space that you are given. It is not like you can knock down a wall to create an open floor plan. However, there are some effective ways that you can create more space especially when it comes to storage. That takes a dedication to sorting and a call to Junk King Contra Costa.

Your Sorting Time

The time you devote to sorting through all your current apartment storage areas can reveal a lot of items that might not serve any purpose. That could be anything from an article clothing to an old DVD player. Do you need to hold onto things that you are never going to use again? Of course not! That is why you want to designate all those unwanted items for removal by the Junk King squad. This is a team of movers who will be dedicated to the task of getting everything out of your apartment that you want to gone. There will be no limit to the amount of times that the Junk King team has to climb the stairs. There also won’t be any limit to how heavy a particular object might be. Yes, this is your chance to finally get rid of that old futon! It can all be taken away with a single session from Junk King.

In addition to the Junk King crew doing all of the lifting and loading work, there is another added benefit for hiring this company. That would be the pricing policy. Junk King charges a flat rate based on how everything will fit onto the truck. When they pack your stuff in tight, then you can benefit from the low end of the price scale. That will always be a fair and competitive price for this type of work.

Creating more space in your apartment means getting rid of the unwanted stuff. That is a job that Junk King Contra Costa can help with today. Call to set up your removal session.

Make 2021 The Year Of No Rubbish

On the Chinese calendar, 2021 is the year of the ox. Anyone who is born under the year of the ox are considered to be strong, reliable, fair and inspiring confidence in others.

It’s always nice to start off the new year with a clean slate and that can begin in your own house. A rubbish removal session with Junk King Contra Costa can make a very positive impact on your living environment. That would be a terrific way to start 2021!

Any Room

Any room in your home could have a designated rubbish item. It could be an article clothing, an old chair or an outdated computer monitor. Whatever you have designated as rubbish can be turned over to the team from junk. You don’t have to gather all of those items up into a single pile. You can leave them right where they are in the team from Junk King will pick them up right on the spot. This is what you are hiring for.

You also hiring Junk King to provide responsible disposal. A lot of the things that you want to get rid of might be used again by a charity who distributes those kinds of things.

That should make you feel good about getting rid of unwanted clothing and other household goods.

If a same day pickup doesn’t work out, then Junk King strives to get everything removed within 24 hours of that first call. You never have to wait long to get rid of your rubbish when Junk King is on the job.

The Need For Junk Removal In The Greater Contra Costa Region

One of the recurring realities of life in the East Bay and Contra Costa County, along with anywhere else that people live, is the need for junk removal.

Whether it’s because our stuff wears out, gets old, or breaks down – or if we simply accumulate too much stuff – at some point we need to get rid of some things that aren’t going to fit in the garbage bin we put out on our curbs. 

And that’s when junk removal becomes a sudden need and reality.

Who Wants to Do Some Junk Removal This Weekend?

That’s a question you’re not likely to get a positive response to. And there’s a good reason for that!

In fact, there are probably several good reasons why most of us wouldn’t find an afternoon at the landfill or waste transfer station an enjoyable outing. Pretty much no one wants to go to the dump, especially on a wet, winter day – or during the heat of an August afternoon. 

And that’s assuming you live close enough to one to make it a reasonable trip and not an expedition or ordeal. 

As we noted once before in a previous post, there are only a few waste facilities for waste management transfer in the entire area of both Alameda and Contra Costa Counties. And only five of them are actual landfills, or dumps. 

One of the great things about junk, however, is that most of it is recyclable, which means a trip to a landfill really shouldn’t be the first option. Reuse, repurpose, or recycle should be the guiding principle for any junk disposal.

There are a few things you should consider, however, when recycling your old junk items.

While it’s a great option, just loading it all in a truck and taking it to a local recycling center is not the way to go. Most recycling service centers have limitations on what they can take and, because many junk items are composed of a variety of materials, they usually need to be dismantled first.

Some materials are easily recycled, while others such as certain foam or plastic materials might not be acceptable. On the other hand, metal junk such as steel or aluminum parts can be recycled as scrap metal and most wood junk is acceptable for recycling purposes.

Because most junk items and junk loads are likely composed of mixed materials, it’s always best to call first before hauling your junk to a local Contra Costa area waste transfer station facility or landfill

Junk Removal Doesn’t Always Mean Landfills

It may seem that the easiest option for junk removal is to simply take it all to the nearest dump and call it good. But proper junk disposal is never that easy. In fact, depending on where you live, just finding a local landfill or waste transfer station can be a problem. Part of the reason for this is that our available landfills are filling up and closing at a distressing rate.

And it doesn’t help matters that the United States generates an average of between four to seven pounds of trash per person every day on average.

According to the EPA website,

“In 2017, the amount of MSW generated was 267.8 million tons. The amount of MSW recycled was 67.2 million tons and the amount composted was 27 million tons. The amount of MSW combusted with energy recovery was 34 million tons, while the amount of MSW sent to landfills was 139.6 million tons.”

And, while much of this waste and trash is recyclable, too much of it still ends up in a landfill.

If we do some quick math that works to about 53 percent of all our trash, garbage, and junk being dumped into our rapidly diminishing landfills. What makes that all the more unfortunate is that approximately 60 to 70 percent of what we toss out is recyclable or reusable.

And what’s true for trash is all the more true for what we tend to refer to as “junk.”
junk removal service recycling

Junk Removal and Disposal Isn’t Always a DIY Job

Perhaps the biggest challenge for anyone who wants to dispose of their junk is suitable transportation. Clark Kent might borrow the Yaris on Smallville, but it’s not the best for hauling junk across the County!

For many of us, the other challenge is letting go of junk we feel is still worth hanging onto.

Except that a year or two goes by and we haven’t used or even touched a lot of it. And that’s when we realize we’re just accumulating “junk” and hoarding things. 

No one likes to think that they’re a hoarder, but if we tend to keep things around that aren’t used or even seen, we need to reassess what needs to be kept and what really should go. 

The consensus among organizing consultants is that if you haven’t used something for over a year, you should get rid of it. Maybe not a truly valuable family heirloom, but certainly that wok from 1985 that you thought would be handy to keep around.

So, assess the actual value of items you are holding onto in your house, garage, attic, back bedroom, or rented storage unit. The goal is to identify all the truly junk items and then make arrangements to have them removed.  

On the other hand, you may have simply created a few piles of junk because you were already downsizing or preparing to move. And there is also the junk that gets created when you are in the midst of a residential remodel, a renovation, or even a large-scale landscaping project. 

All of these activities and more can leave you with unwieldy amounts of junk, trash, and debris that is far too much for you to get rid of yourself. When the junk is too much for DIY junk removal, call in the local pros: Junk King Contra Costa!

Junk King is happy to go out of their way to make these kinds of drop-offs of those objects that can be used again. That is especially relevant this time of year.

When You Need Couch Removal In The Contra Costa Area

There are few simple pleasures in life that can compare to cozying up on a comfy couch in front of the TV and simply relaxing. Or even sleeping, as many of us are prone to do. However, when that comfy couch becomes worn-out and lumpy, it’s time for an upgrade and couch removal.

“Sure,” you might say. “But that’s easier said than done.” 

This is true since just moving a couch or sofa is almost never a one-person job. And the larger the couch, the more it weighs, and the harder it is to get it through doorways and stairwells. Oh, and if you happen to have an old sleeper sofa, well then, you’ve got a monster piece to move.

So, what do you do about couch removal then?

Sofa or Couch? And How Do You Remove It?

Perhaps you’ve never thought about it, but there is a difference between a sofa and a couch. At least, as far as definitions go. Sleeping on one or the other likely feels the same!

According to an Apartment Therapy article, 

While Overstock calls a sofa an upholstered bench with cushions, two arms, and ample space for people to sit, a couch typically has no arms and is smaller than a sofa.

However, it turns out that the distinction has blurred over the decades and, today, there is no real difference other than which term people choose to use.

The same article goes on to note,

“Today, the choice of ‘sofa’ versus ‘couch is entirely subjective and a reflection of how you live with the piece,” explains Nidhi Kapur, founder and CEO of Maiden Home. “‘Couch’ is the more casual term used for a comfort-driven piece, while ‘sofa’ is the more formal and might refer to a polished, design-driven piece.”

Regardless of what you want to call it, when your old couch – or sofa – becomes uncomfortable or too worn and ragged to keep around, you have to remove it. And that can be a real challenge, especially if you have no one to help and only own a Prius!

So, the big question is: How do I get rid of my old couch?

Before we go there, another question that naturally follows this one is, where do you take it?

Goodbye, Old Couch, Hello, Landfill. Really?

If you stop and think about it, if your old couch is truly unusable then the only destination for it must be the dump. That’s what landfills are for, right? 

Yes, but…

If you live in the Contra Costa County region, you may be surprised to learn that there are few waste facilities available and just five landfills listed for the County. In addition, once you find a location you think you want to use, you have to call first to confirm that it will take couches and sofas. Not all of them do, as it turns out. 

If you have access to a large dumpster at your residence, you may consider disposing of your couch there. But you’ll need some tools and some time, since the best way to do this by disassembling your couch or sofa. And, if this sounds like it will be a lot of work, you’re right!

But it is a free way to dispose of your couch.

Maybe that’s not an option for you. But you should also know that much of the material your old couch or sofa is made from can be recycled. If you choose to try recycling it yourself, however, you still have to dismantle it first. And keep in mind that not everything your couch is made of can be recycled, like all the foam padding materials and plastics.

On the other hand, there may be plenty of metal parts that can be sold for scrap metal, and the wood pieces can be reused or recycled.

Thinking About a New Home for Your Old Furniture

Most of us have experienced this: You’re driving along somewhere outside of, say, Concord or Richmond, and you see an old couch dumped out in a field or along the side of the road. This is a classic example of what you should never consider as an easy “couch removal” option.

When you see illegal dumping in Contra Costa County, you have several options for reporting the incident.

For example, if you witness some illegal dumping as it is happening, you’re encouraged to call 911 to get the police out to the site, if possible. Hopefully, you’ll be able to write down the car or truck license plate numbers of the dumpers. Better yet, take pictures with your phone if you can. 

Also, if you spot debris in any of the creeks around Contra Costa County, you should call the Contra Costa Clean Water Program hotline at 1-800-NO-DUMPING. And, if you do spot something like a sofa that has been left on the curb, then you’ll want to contact the municipal city agency where the offense occurred.

Of course, illegal dumping here would be eliminated if folks just were responsible enough to call Junk King Contra Costa!

Hey! Feel Like Moving a Couch?

If you want to get rid of your couch yourself, you have to get some help, since it’s too heavy for one person to lift. And, even if you could, it’s too large and bulky to navigate alone through doorways and steps alone.

So, how much do these things weigh? 

Couches come in different sizes and styles, from small two-seaters to massive sectionals. The weight depends but ranges from three-seat sofas at over 250 pounds to four-pieces sectionals weighing over 1,000 pounds. 

If you do have help, then moving your old couch might be possible – if you have a vehicle large enough to carry it safely. 

These are just some of the reasons why you simply need to call Junk King Contra Costa for your couch removal needs.

That single call to Junk King can set a plan in motion that will have all of your unwanted items removed from your property without you lifting a finger. Consider the couch removal provided by Junk King. If it took two capable movers to bring that sofa into your home, then it will take the same number of movers to take it out.

These aren’t just any movers, however. The Junk King crews are all licensed and insured. They’re going to be treating your property as if it were their own. That means no dragging furniture across the floor or banging into walls.

In addition to handling your old couch removal, that same Junk King crew can remove other bulky items like appliances, mattresses, computers, televisions, monitors, chairs, tables and printers. Additionally, that friendly Junk King crew can work wonders around your yard as they help get you ready for the coming winter season.

The crews can take away fallen palm fronds, bags of leaves and any other type of yard waste. If you’ve been storing things like lumber, wood and construction debris on your property, now is the time to have it all taken away.

In fact, everything can be gone in a single junk removal appointment with Junk King Contra Costa.

All of which is why, if you live anywhere in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties, we heartily recommend calling in a professional furniture removal team like Junk King Contra Costa to take care of it all for you.

Put Junk King To Work For Bulk Item Removal

The municipal garbage collectors designate anything that doesn’t fit into a trashcan as a bulk item. They also make getting rid of those bulk items extremely difficult. Essentially, this is a job they don’t want to get involved with. As a homeowner, that means you have a choice. You can either continue to be crowded out by that bulk item in your home or you can bring in outside help to get it cleared away once and for all. Thankfully, Junk King Contra Costa can provide that outside help in a way that is both efficient and affordable.

Size Doesn’t Matter

The bulk item that you are getting rid of might be something that was actually built inside your home. Any assembled piece of furniture is usually put together in the room it will end up in. That doesn’t mean it can be easily taken out of that room without disassembling it. That is something that the team from Junk King has a lot of experience with and they will be happy to accommodate.

A bulk item can also be something that is especially large and heavy. That makes it cumbersome to move around but not when you have to experience movers on either side of it. The Junk King crew will always find the safest path out of the house for that bulk item. Their goal is not to scratch up any floors or bang into any walls.

Before that work as removal begins you want to make sure that the price is right. that price will always be based on how your stuff will fit onto the back the Junk King truck. The team from Junk King might take a few moments to rearrange items on the truck so that everything is crammed into as little space as possible. That means you pay the low end of the price scale. It really is just that simple!
