Los Angeles Junk Removal Prices

Visitors to Los Angeles often make a b-line right to Hollywood Boulevard. They want to see the stars footprints at Graumans or the Walk of Fame. That’s understandable but there’s a lot more to see in LA then just a couple of blocks in Hollywood. This holds true for the locals who feel like they are missing out. Fear not because here are some suggestions for exploring the other side of LA.

Venice Beach: On some level, everyone who lives in Los Angeles is really just under an hour away from the beach. Most vacationers would think nothing of flying for hours to get to the kind of beaches we have at our disposal every day. Beyond the surfing and tanning potential there is a haven of artists and personalities that shouldn’t be missed and they can be found everyday at Venice Beach. There’s always a pick-up volleyball or basketball game going on. You can also marvel at the muscles working out at the outdoor gym once frequented by our former action star governor. There are great places to grab lunch. The best vantage point would be any bench along the stroll where you can spend hours people watching.

Pacific Coast Highway: To get to Venice Beach you might go by way of the Pacific Coast Highway or PCH. Head down to the PCH from Los Angeles. Turn left and you can go south all the way to San Diego. Go right and you can take it north all the way to San Francisco. But even just going an hour or two in either direction will open you up to some amazing coastal views. Along the way there are plenty of shops and cafes to stop off at. A great day trip to be sure.

The Fashion District: Everybody knows about the primo window shopping opportunities in Beverly Hills along Rodeo drive or up and down the Third Street Promenade but have you heard about the Fashion District? This is a stretch of 90 blocks downtown that is a bustling community of over 1,000 stores. Make sure to go during the week and get ready to shop until you drop!

Of course, taking advantage of those day trips means you need to clear your schedule. If you’ve got a “to-do” list that includes “clean out the garage”  then you need to call Junk King LA. Junk King is not new to the junk removal business. They are part of a national franchise of junk haulers who are dedicated to cleaning out the clutter of your life. When you hire Junk King LA you’re also hiring dedicated workers and a big truck. They can clear out your garage in a snap and drive away with all your junk. This will free up your weekend for more important “pursuits.” Best of all Junk King charges by the amount of space you take up on their truck. That’s it and it couldn’t be easier.

E-Waste Recycling in Los Angeles

Santa Anita Park isn’t just for betting on the ponies. Recently, the famed race track played host to Los Angeles County’s hazardous and e-waste collection drive. Basically, this was the perfect time to get rid of all that stuff you know you can’t throw out in the garbage. On the hazardous waste list are things like brake fluid, paint, paint thinner, cleaners with acid or lye, pesticides or herbicides, household and car batteries, pool chemicals, motor oil, oil filters, expired pharmaceuticals, anti-freeze and fluorescent light bulbs. Residents were also encouraged to bring their electronic waste or e-waste. That would essentially be anything you can plug into a socket such as computer monitors, televisions, computer CPUs, keyboards, printers and cell phones.

The organizers were really excited about this event: “This is one of L.A. County’s largest e-waste collections for the entire year,” Santa Anita’s special projects and community service Director Pete Siberell said. “We’re set up well, with good access and we’re happy to be in a position to help.”

Unfortunately, by the time you read this article the drop off event has already come and gone. That’s because even with all that planning and excitement it was only a single day affair that lasted from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Santa Anita isn’t one of the most convenient places for most of Los Angeles residents to get to on a Saturday morning. Then there is all the hauling. You could probably fill up your SUV with pounds of electronic waste but loading up that car is going to add time to your trip. If you missed the event, you might have to wait several more months before the next one. The better way approach for getting rid of your e-waste would be to call up Junk King Los Angeles.

Since opening its doors for business in LA, Junk King has quickly become the “go to” company for eco-friendly junk removal. That’s because Junk King treats each of their customers with the highest standards of professionalism and respect, coupled with their respect for the local environment.

Suppose you just have a couple of monitors and an old TV you want to get rid of. Is it still worth calling Junk King? Absolutely. That’s because you can take full advantage of your Junk King appointment by getting rid of all of your clutter. That can include, but not be limited to, all manner of old furniture, appliances, mattresses, lamps, workout equipment, car parts, patio furniture and/or air conditioners. Just about anything that can be tossed onto the Junk King truck can be taken away.

Junk King LA will also do their best to make sure your junk is diverted away from landfills and towards recycling centers and that’s especially important for e-waste. This means getting rid of your junk with Junk King Los Angeles counts as reducing your carbon footprint. That’s a win/win!
