If you want a bulky item picked up by the City of Los Angeles, good luck. First, you’re going to have to make your way through the maze of bureaucracy that is the phone system. After being put on hold for who knows how long, you’ll have to present your itemized list of what you want removed. You’ll also have to fill out a form that you can download from the city’s website. Here’s the real kicker; on the day of the pickup you’ve got to take whatever it is you want collected down to the curb and hope there is room next to your garbage cans. Suppose for a moment you were hoping to get rid of something like an old refrigerator or couch. Do you have the help to get those things down to the street? Would you drag them down the night before? You might have to because suppose you miss the truck pickup in the early morning? Then that old fridge is going to be stuck on the curb until you can make another call for yet another appointment. There has to be a better way, right? Actually there is and that way is with Junk King Los Angeles.

3 Ways to Get Rid of Bulky Junk Items in Los Angeles
Let´s say that you recently decided to completely renovate your home interior. You´ve finally saved up the money to get rid of those sagging, stained couches, and uncomfortable mattresses that left you with a sore back every morning. Now that your new furniture has been delivered and you´re enjoying the benefits of a refreshing, new home interior, you still have to deal with how to get rid of those bulky junk items that are awkwardly taking up space in your attic, driveway, or some other obscure part of your home.
Bulky junk and waste items can be a headache for homeowners, business owners, and individuals to get rid of in a safe, legal, and environmentally friendly manner. Most people have learned how to sort their regular trash into either the recycle bin, compost bin, or regular trash can. Trying to fit an old mattress and box springs or some other bulky junk item into your regular trash car, however, is going to end well.
If you live in the Los Angeles area and need a way to quickly and efficiently get rid of bulky junk items, Junk King offers the best bulky junk removal in the area. We are proud to provide the best junk removal services to the wider Los Angeles area, including to Alhambra, Arcadia, Beverly Hills, Burbank, Covina, Downey, Duarte, El Monte, Glendale, Inglewood, La Mirada, Long Beach, Los Angeles, Norwalk, Pasadena, Pico Rivera, West Covina, and Whittier.
Below, we explain the top three ways in which Junk King of Los Angeles can help you get rid of all your bulky junk items.
We can Help You Donate your Bulky Items
According to the Los Angeles County Public Works Office, “with many landfills expected to close in the next decade, California is facing a waste crisis. As our population continues to grow, we must find solutions to our waste problem. Large, heavy, and bulky waste items are one of the biggest contributors to the landfill scarcity crisis that we are facing in southern California and in other parts of the country. For example, Americans dispose of up to 20 million mattresses each year according to industry sources, adding as much as 800 million cubic feet to landfills. Add to that an additional 9 million tons of old or used furniture, and you can see how bulky junk items are putting an enormous burden on our already filled-to-capacity network of landfills.
Here at Junk King of Los Angeles, we go the extra mile to find ways to donate your used bulky junk items. Over years of operation, we have developed a huge network of relationships with thrift stores, charities, and other organizations that can receive your used junk items, refurbish them, and offer them either via resale or donation to others in our community. This is a great way not only to keep your bulky junk items out of the landfill, but also to help less economically fortunate families here in Los Angeles.
We Find Ways to Recycle What Cannot Be Donated
Of course, there are always going to be times when bulky junk items are beyond the point of repair. Whether your dog tore your couch to pieces, or your old dining room table is no longer salvageable, our junk removal teams also work with several recycling organizations and businesses in the Los Angeles area. If your bulky junk items simply are too old or broken down to be donated and reused, we will make every effort to find a recycler who can take that junk and keep it out of the landfill. We believe wholeheartedly in supporting the circular economy, and put in the extra effort to keep your junk out of the dump.
Examples of some bulky junk items that we can pick up and may be able to recycle include used furniture, appliances, electronic equipment (E-Waste), wood waste, tree branches, scrap wood, debris from building remodeling, rocks, sod and earth, clothing, tires, car motor parts. As long as your bulky junk is not classified as toxic waste, we should be able to help you get rid of it.
No Matter Type of Bulky Junk Items You Have, We´ll Do All of the Hard Work
One of the biggest obstacles to dealing with bulky junk items that are taking up space in your home or business is the fact that they can be incredibly heavy and hard to move. Hauling a 200 pound couch down two flights of stairs is certainly not an easy task, and can be physically dangerous. When you hire Junk King of Los Angeles for your bulky junk item removal, our professional junk removal technicians will do all of the heavy lifting and hauling. You simply have to tell us what you want removed from your home or business and where it is located, and we´ll do the rest for you!
Another great thing about using pros like Junk King as opposed to day laborers is that you can depend on us to treat your home or business with utmost respect. As the leading junk removal service in the region, the Junk King Los Angeles team will be licensed and insured, which could make a huge difference in case something should go awry like a scuffed up hardwood floor or damage to a wall. Whereas other junk removal services might leave you to deal with any mess and damage that occurs, our trained professionals will most likely not cause any damage in the first place. If something were to occur, however, we most certainly will respond as quickly as possible.
We know that bulky junk items can take up a lot of space in your home and that freeing up space in your home is rewarding. We are here to help you achieve just that.
