Did you know that according to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the average American person will produce about 4.9 pounds of trash each and every day? Of that, only about one and a half pounds of trash are recycled. Fortunately, there are several things that all of us can do to reduce the amount of trash that we produce, and that eventually ends up in our nation´s landfills. For example, of the almost 1,800 pounds of trash that we produce each year, over 20 percent of that is wasted food, kitchen scraps, and leftovers that never got eaten. Sending old food and other forms of organic waste (such as bags of fallen leaves and other types of yard waste) is one of the worst things you can do. When mixed with other types of trash at the landfill, organic wastes release an enormous amount of methane gas, which is one of the most potent types of greenhouse gasses driving global warming. By simply composting our kitchen scraps, leftover meals, yard waste, and other sources or organic waste, we can essentially reduce our waste footprint by one-fifth, and drastically reduce the greenhouse gas emissions associated with our trash.
But what about those larger and bulkier trash items? Or those times when you are going through a deep de-clutter process in your home and you end up with an enormous amount of junk that is taking up space in your yard or garage? For individuals, homeowners, and business owners in the Los Angeles area, waiting on our municipal trash service to take away large and bulky items requires a bit of planning and waiting until your regular pick-up day is scheduled. According to the City of Los Angeles, “To arrange for the removal of (bulky items) from your curbside, please call 1-800-773-2489, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at least one day before your regular collection day. Bulky items are collected on the same day that your regular trash collection is made.”
Though it is helpful that bulky item pickup is available for all residents, waiting for your regular pickup day might not be feasible for many people. Fortunately, Junk King of Los Angeles offers the most efficient and affordable way to deal with large and bulky trash pickup. Below, we explain the top three reasons why you should consider hiring Junk King of Los Angeles for all of your large trash pickup needs.
Reason #1: We Can Help You Get Rid of Virtually Anything
When you hire Junk King of Los Angeles, you won´t have to worry about separating your trash items, or dealing with several difficult restrictions regarding what can and cannot be carried away. Our professional junk removal technicians can help you get rid of virtually anything, as long as it is not classified as toxic waste. We can help you haul and remove items like old kitchen appliances, old worn-out furniture, yard waste debris, outdated televisions, sagging mattresses, old hot tubs, and everything in between.
For our commercial clients, we can help you deal with building waste and debris, and other bulky sources of trash. Having a pile of junk sitting in front of your business is probably not a good strategy for your business. We can help you get your space cleaned up in the shortest amount of time to ensure that your home, business, or residence is back to normal.
Also, we make every effort to accommodate clients who might not be able to lift, carry, or haul heavy items on their own. If you have an old couch on the second floor of your home, but don’t have a strong enough back to get it downstairs and out to the curbside, we can help you do the heavy lifting and hauling to make your junk removal needs as easy and straightforward as possible. For clients who prefer a “no-contact” junk removal service, you can also simply leave your junk on your driveway or the curb in front of your home or business, and we can haul away your waste without ever entering your home or residence.
Reason #2: We Are Proud to be the Greenest Junk Removal Company in the Nation
Here at Junk King, we believe wholeheartedly that everyone should play a part in caring for our environment. Whereas many junk removal companies choose the easy route of simply hauling the junk items they pick up directly to the local dump, we are proud to say that we recycle, donate, or otherwise repurpose at least 60 percent of the junk items that we pick up. We know that California is facing a severe landfill crisis, and we want to do our part to ensure that your junk stays out of our already-crowded landfills.
Over several years of working in the junk removal industry, we have developed a huge network of relationships with recycling companies, thrift stores, and other organizations that allow us to give your junk another “life.” For environmentally-conscious homeowners, individuals, and business owners in the Los Angeles area, hiring Junk King is your best strategy to do your part to reduce your waste footprint. We offer our green junk removal services to the following Los Angeles areas: Arcadia, Beverly Hills, Burbank, Carson, Compton, Covina, Downey, Glendale, Inglewood, Lakewood, Long Beach, Los Angeles, Norwalk, Pasadena, Rancho Cucamonga, San Pedro, and Whittier.
Reason #3: Top-Notch Customer Service
Lastly, Junk King of Los Angeles is also committed to offering the absolute best customer service in the region. We believe that large junk removal shouldn’t be a headache for our customers. To that end, we offer the quickest and most efficient junk removal service in the region. As we mentioned above, our professional junk removal technicians can do all of the heavy lifting and hauling for you.
Also, we believe that every client has the right to know exactly how much you can expect to pay for any type of junk removal service. To that end, we offer all of our clients a fair and transparent pricing estimate for any junk removal job. We understand that large junk removal can be a hectic time, and we believe that our customers shouldn’t have to worry about hidden prices and other concealed costs. Thus, we offer all of our customers four convenient ways to get a free estimate on any size junk removal service you may need.
For larger jobs, we offer on-site pricing, which will allow us to give you an accurate and exact price estimate for the job. We may even be able to haul away your junk the same day we give you the on-site price estimate. You can also call us at 1-888-888-JUNK to live chat with our highly trained customer service representatives. For smaller junk removal services, you can take a photo of the items you need removed and text us at 737-888-5865. We will text you back an estimate.
