People who live in the communities of the Inland Empire have dozens of different options when it comes to dealing with their waste streams, cleaning up their homes or businesses, and getting rid of the piles of junk laying around your property. Most people probably rely on the public trash service for their weekly or bi-weekly trash removal. In some cases, you might feel the environmental responsibility to take some of your larger bulk junk items and other recyclables to local drop-off stations and recycling centers that are sponsored by the City government. Still others may feel that hiring a private junk removal company is their best option. Here in the Inland Empire, Waste Management and Junk King are two of the most well-known and widely used junk removal companies in the region. In this short articles, we take a look at the pros and cons of these junk removal alternatives so that you can decide for yourself which option best fits your needs.

In general, Waste Management also offers 1-2 free bulky item pickups per year for their residential customers. These bulky item pickups need to be scheduled beforehand and may be subject to availability. Used electronics and other sources of e-waste are also collected twice a year by the company.
Cons of Using Waste Management, Inc.
Despite the fact that Waste Management is one of the main providers of regular commercial and residential junk removal in the Inland Empire, there are also several drawbacks that you need to take into account, including:
- Restrictions on types of trash that can and cannot be picked up. The company will only allow you to dispose of a certain amount of trash items. Even if you schedule a bulky item pickup, the company will have strict regulations regarding the size, volume, and weight of the junk items.
- Waste Management only offers two “free” bulky junk items per year. Of course, you are already paying for those pickups through your regular monthly fee. If you need more than two bulky item pickups per year, then you will have to pay an extra charge. The same goes for electronic waste (e-waste) pickup services.
- Waste Management Inc., as with many garbage companies providing regular trash pickup for cities and towns across the country, has been plagued by worker shortages that regularly lead to temporarily suspending regular trash pickup.
- Waste Management, Inc. also is not able to pick up household hazardous waste. According to the company´s website, “used oil filters, paint, antifreeze, batteries, propane tanks, pesticides, household cleaners, pool chemicals, and sharps / needles.
