Did you know that there were over 1.1 million people living in Contra Costa County in 2019? That´s almost double the amount of people that we had back in 1980. Of course, we understand. With our parks and great location just outside San Francisco it shouldn’t come as a surprise that so many people want to move here. Unfortunately, as more and more people flock to Contra Costa County, there are a series of problems that come with this surging demographic trend. Among one of the problems we face is how to deal with the increasing amount of trash that our growing population creates.
Double the amount of people should amount to double the amount of trash. However, as our consumer habits and trends grow, the amount of waste created by individuals and businesses is significantly higher than in the past. Where we put all that trash is a serious problem that needs to be dealt with.
In 2018, there was concern that waste dumped at a Contra Costa County landfill from the former Hunters Point Naval Shipyard might have potentially contained radioactive material. While the final audit determined that it was unlikely that radioactive waste made its way into the landfill in our county, the scare itself goes to show that dealing with the enormous amount of waste we create needs to be taken seriously.
Fortunately, for residents and business owners in Contra Costa County, Junk King of Contra Costa offers professional, efficient, and affordable junk removal services to help you get rid of your junk in a responsible manner.
So why exactly should you choose Junk King Contra Costa to get rid of your junk?
Firstly, illegal dumping in Contra Costa County is an illegal and punishable offense. Illegal dumps often attract more waste, including potentially hazardous wastes and chemicals. Most local waste collection companies do not pick up bulky items like carpeting, large furniture, or other household hazardous wastes.
Illegal dumping is not only a public health hazard, but it also leads to increased costs for local government and industry associated with continuous clearing of illegally dumped wastes. According to the county government: “In the past years, the Contra Costa County has spent up to one million dollars per year on cleanup, hauling, and disposal associated with illegal dumping. Without adequate revenue, the funding available to establish and maintain effective illegal dumping prevention programs is limited. These costs may be passed along to residents in the form of higher service fees or property taxes.” Of course, if you are found dumping your waste illegally, you can also expect a sizeable fee.
Junk King of Contra Costa offers an efficient (and legal) way to get rid of almost all of your bulky junk items, including hot tubs, refrigerators, freezers, mattresses, computers and other “e-waste” items, TV´s, appliances, old furniture, yard waste, and more.

“Had a great experience using Junk King today. My family was holding on to old couches and other furniture for months. Called Junk King a few days before to set up an appointment and it’s great to have had availability for a pick up today – on a Saturday no less. Quincy and Donzell were on time, friendly, moved very quickly and were very professional. They had masks on the whole time, which I appreciated. I’m grateful for their help and their fair estimate to take all the crap we had. We are enjoying the extra space we have now and should have called them sooner! Thanks also to the dispatcher, Rebecca, who was friendly and professional with setting up the appointment and taking care of the logistics. I’m sure I’ll be reaching out again after we declutter.”
