Concrete Disposal In Los Angeles

There is an addition to the downtown Los Angeles skyline being added. That would be the New Wilshire Grand Tower. When construction is complete, the building will rise an impressive 1,100 feet in the air. It is also being designed to withstand the fierce Santa Ana winds and the rumbling of earthquakes. The area has been cleared and now it is time for the cement pour. This will consist of 2,120 truckloads of concrete being poured into a hole that is 18 feet deep. The trick is that all that concrete has to be poured within 30 hours or else the foundation will be compromised. Clearly, this will be an “all hands on deck” moment for this project as crews work around the clock to accomplish the task. It kind of puts your new driveway into perspective.

If you’re looking to repair a sidewalk, patio or driveway with your own concrete pour, then you’ll first have to clear the field. That is going to mean proper concrete disposal handled by Junk King. There are weight restrictions for our weekly garbage pickup. In other words, you’re not going to be able to toss out those chunks of concrete. Even if you managed to break them up into little piles of stones, it would take several weeks before all that concrete could be thrown out in your garbage. The more efficient way is to have Junk King handle all the concrete disposal in a single pickup appointment.

As you might guess from their name, Junk King specializes in junk removal. Typically, this means household goods, appliances and furniture. However, Junk King is capable of hauling away just about anything you want to get rid of. Best of all, they’re not going to charge you by the pound. If Junk King is going to handle your concrete disposal, then you’re only going to be charged a flat fee base on how much space that concrete will take up in the back of the Junk King truck. Don’t worry: They’re not going to lay it out flat! Instead, the Junk King crew will pack it in tight to make sure you get the best deal possible.

You can take full advantage of that crew and truck by having them remove anything else you want tossed out at the same time. Just because you’re putting in a new driveway doesn’t meant you can’t clear out your garage or closets. Junk King is your best bet for concrete disposal and total junk removal on your property.

Celebrate Earth Day In Los Angeles With Green Junk Removal

The Los Angeles Zoo is getting in on the Earth Day celebrations by offering up an expo that highlights California wildlife and “the role is plays in the health of Planet Earth.” According to the official press release: “Earth Day Expo features interactive stations throughout the Zoo providing guests an opportunity to explore information and ideas about animal conservation and preservation, sustainable living for humans, recycling, and how to make Earth a better place to live. All activities are free with paid Zoo admission.” Among the special Earth Day centric attractions is a demonstration at Sea Lion Cliffs about the importance of water conservation. There will also be a station highlighting the Condor Recovery Program that has brought these might birds back from the brink of extinction. The goal is to show visitors the impact of proper recycling practices and sustainable energy choices.

Recently, Los Angeles has gotten extremely robust with regard to its recycling efforts. They have banned plastic bags from all grocery stores and retail outlets. It’s the largest city in the country to adopt such measures. What can you do to help? Keep up with your own curbside recycling and stick with eco-friendly companies like Junk King.

Every Junk King junk removal appointment is like a mini Earth Day project. As part of the company’s business model, all Junk King crews have been instructed to set aside those items that can be recycled or donated. The goal is to divert as much junk away from the area landfills as possible. That goal is actually easy to accomplish if you’ve got the manpower and the will. Fortunately, Junk King has abundant supplies of both!

For your junk removal appointment, Junk King is going to dispatch a very capable moving crew. This will be the team that is going to do the actual work of removing your junk and loading it onto a truck. You don’t have to lift a finger. All you need to do is tell the Junk King crew what you want removed then sit back and watch it go! You also don’t have to tell the crew that you want your junk recycled. They’re going to do that automatically. Thanks to the many recycling facilities located in the area, Junk King won’t have a problem finding the right drop off for your stuff. Do your part to keep Los Angeles green: hire Junk King for an eco-friendly junk removal session.
