Labor Day Preparation Junk Pickup In Los Angeles

Welcome to the last big weekend of the summer. Over the long Labor Day weekend, Angelinos will be flocking down to the Santa Monica Pier or Venice Boardwalk for one last day in the sun. There will be plenty of backyard BBQs and pool parties. Most of the kids are already back in school so for them it’s the last chance to have fun before the dreaded “It’s a school night” hammers down! Add it all up and the Labor Day weekend is here for relaxation. Despite its title, you shouldn’t be working on this weekend. If you feel a twinge of guilt over the fact that you’ve put off all those important household chores, relax. Junk King is standing by to help you knock off at least one of them: your junk pickup project.

You might not be able to squeeze in a Junk King appointment before the weekend is over, but you can certainly set up a junk pickup for the following week. Junk King wants to work around your schedule. That could mean setting up your pickup for a few days away or within 24 hours. You could call this morning and score a same-day appointment. In any case, Junk King is going to be dependable. They’ll show up when they say they will and keep you informed of their progress before getting to your location.

Once on your property, you’ll need to show Junk King what you’re throwing out. Even though you’ve probably talked about this to the dispatch representative, it is important for the crew to see the actual items. That’s because they’re going to be sizing up your junk to estimate how much space it will occupy on the back of the Junk King truck. That will determine your price point. This flat fee covers all the junk pickup expenses with no hidden charges. If it turns out that your junk takes up more room than the estimate, you won’t pay a penny more!

The other factor to keep in mind with hiring Junk King is that they are a totally green company. They’ve been dedicated to keeping junk out of area landfills since their founding. So far, this policy has resulted in up to 60% of all collected junk being recycled or donated. You don’t have to work this Labor Day when you’ve got Junk King doing the junk pickup for you!

Do you handle e-waste recycling like televisions and computers?

Although we don’t do the physical disassemble of e-waste objects, we will make sure your junk gets to the proper facilities for recycling and disposal. Many folks will toss out old computers in the same junk removal appointment that is getting rid of old furniture. This might mean two separate drop offs of those items. That’s not something you have to concern yourself with or be charged for!

Will Junk King pick up construction waste?

Whether you need clean up from a home remodeling project or your building a house from the ground up, you’re going to create a lot of debris. Junk King is happy to pick up all of that construction waste. You can schedule a single junk removal appointment when the job is complete or set up weekly removal sessions. Either way, we’ll make sure all that waste is removed in a timely fashion.

Why can’t you haul away hazardous materials?

If it were up to us, we’d take away everything. But state and city regulations prohibit us from handling hazardous materials. This includes things like oil, gas, solvents and paint. To get rid of those items, you’ll have to drop them off at a certified disposal center. We can provide you with those locations if needed.

How long has Junk King been in business?

Junk King was formed in 2005 by a couple of friends who needed this type of service but couldn’t find a reliable company. Today, there are Junk King branches in 22 cities across the country including here in Los Angeles. It is a company that is dedicated to helping folks get junk free and keep the environment green. When it comes to professional junk removal, Junk King is the only call you should make.
