Top 3 Tips for Efficient Yard Waste Removal in Alhambra

If you are a homeowner or business owner in Alhambra, the coming of the fall season probably makes you think about the Halloween and Thanksgiving holidays, pumpkin pie spice in your morning coffee, the slightly colder days and evenings…and a good deal of yard work that needs to be done. Raking and bagging seemingly endless piles of leaves, tidying up your vegetable or flower garden for the winter, and other similar tasks isn’t always the most fun thing to do. If you are looking for the best ways to deal with yard waste this fall, in this short article we offer three tips for the most efficient yard waste removal in Alhambra. We also explain why Junk King of Los Angeles offers the best way to help individuals, homeowners, and businesses in Alhambra and the surrounding get rid of their yard waste in the most efficient and environmentally friendly manner. 

Problems with Yard Waste Removal in Alhambra

When it comes to dealing with your yard waste, many homeowners simply don’t know how to efficiently get rid of the piles of grass clippings, leaves, prunings, brush, garden wastes, and tree limbs that accumulate on your property every fall. Though yard waste is a type of “green” or organic trash, the sheer amount of yard waste makes it impossible to either compost at home or fit into the organic waste bin for regular pickup. Though you could hire a landscaping company for your yard waste issues, they will most likely charge an oversized fee for removing the yard waste from your property. 

Private junk haulers can help you get rid of the bulky yard waste you have sitting around your yard. Unfortunately, many of these companies in the southern California area simply send the yard waste they pick up directly to the local landfill. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), “in 2018, landfills received about 10.5 million tons of yard trimmings, which comprised 7.2 percent of all MSW (municipal solid waste) landfilled.” 

When yard waste decomposes together with other types of municipal solid waste, it releases an enormous amount of methane gas into the atmosphere. Methane is one of the most potent greenhouse gasses driving global climate change. 

Yard waste, then, is heavy, bulky, and difficult to deal with on your own. Even if you are able to find a company help you get rid of your yard waste, most of those companies unfortunately send those leaves, clippings, and old limbs directly to the local landfill, thus directly contributing to one of the most serious environmental issues of our day. 

Top 3 Tips for Dealing with Yard Waste in the Most Efficient and Environmentally Friendly Manner 

So what exactly should you do with the fallen leaves, downed tree limbs, and other types of yard waste that come with the fall season? 

  1. Compost your yard waste: If you have a sizeable back yard, you might consider composting those leaves, grass clippings, tree limbs, and other sources of yard waste. For larger limbs and trees, you may need to purchase or rent a wood chipper to help you break down the waste more quickly. After several months of slowly breaking down, those old leaves and trees will be transformed into a rich compost that you can use on your garden or around your trees. 
  2. Schedule a bulky item pickup: Another way to efficiently deal with your yard waste is to hire a one-time bulky item pickup with the local trash service. You will, however, still have to haul the yard waste out to the curb. Furthermore, it is important to read carefully the fine print to ensure that you are not trying to get rid of too much yard waste. Many local trash services also require homeowners to break down the yard waste into manageable sizes and weights. 
  3. Hire Junk King of Los Angeles: If you don’t have a large backyard, or if you don’t want to deal with chopping, shredding, bagging, and hauling an enormous amount of yard waste, you can also hire Junk King of Los Angeles. We are proud to be the top-rated junk removal company in the southern California region. We make it easy for residential and commercial customers to get rid of their yard waste in the most efficient and environmentally friendly way possible.

Construction and Demolition Debris Removal in Covina

Here in the state of California, we are facing a pretty severe housing shortage in the near future. In fact, experts believe that California needs to double its current rate of housing production (which stands at 85,000 units per year) just to keep up with expected population growth and housing demand. Furthermore, in the next 2-3 years, the Governor of California believes that State needs 3.5 million new homes by 2025. Though these statistics might be great news for construction companies in the State, it also could lead to serious stresses on the landfill systems throughout the State. 

In this short article, we take a look at some of the challenges association with construction and demolition (C&D) debris here in Covina, California. We then explain why Junk King Los Angeles is the best solution for businesses, homeowners, and others looking for the most efficient and affordable construction and demolition debris removal in Covina. 

The Challenges of Construction and Demolition Debris Removal 

If you’ve driven through a neighborhood where new homes are being built, you’ve probably seen those large dumpsters that are filled to the brim with scrap sheets of plywood, leftover bricks, and other types of construction debris. When homes are being demolished, there are most likely a line of dump trucks waiting to haul away the resulting debris. 

Construction and demolition (C&D) waste refers to any type of junk, waste, or leftover material that is generated from construction, renovation, repair, and demolition of houses, large building structures, roads, bridges, piers, and dams. The main components of C&D waste are wood, steel, concrete, gypsum, masonry, plaster, metal, and asphalt. 

What most people don’t understand, however, is that every year we generate around 600 million U.S. short tons (about 544 million tons) of construction and demolition debris in the United States alone. To put this number into perspective, that is more than twice the amount of generated municipal solid waste (MSW). That means that that scrap plywood, old windows, broken bricks, twisted steel and rebar, and other types of C&D debris is by far the biggest contributor to our nation´s waste streams.

When taken to the local dump, C&D debris obviously takes up a huge amount of space and has contributed to the landfill scarcity crisis that is affecting some parts of the country. Fortunately, the vast majority of construction and demolition debris is eventually recovered, reused, or recycled. In 2018, the recovery and recycle rate for C&D debris stood at 76 percent, compared to just over 30 percent for municipal solid waste. 

Here in Covina, California, the local government has implemented several ordinances and laws to ensure that the vast majority of construction and demolition debris is either recycled or reused, instead of simply sent to the nearest dump. According to the City´s website

Construction, demolition, and remodel activities occurring within the City of Covina generate a significant volume of debris that could be destined for landfills. In order to preserve available landfill space and maintain compliance with CAL Green Building Codes, the City has established a policy that requires the recycling or reuse of material generated by such activities. Complete policy details can be found in Ordinance 18-03, adopted by the Covina City Council on February 20, 2018.

The policy is applicable to all construction, demolition, addition, alteration, and remodeling projects occurring within the City of Covina.  Only residential additions and alterations that do not increase the building area, volume, or size are exempt.

More specifically, this local ordinance requires

  • Recycling/reuse of 75 percent of the project waste stream.
  • Recycling/reuse of 100 percent of material resulting from non-residential land clearing.
  • Use of City approved recycling facilities.
  • Proper disposal of hazardous and universal waste.
  • Submittal of a Pre-Project Recycling Plan.
  • Payment of an Administrative Fee, non-refundable.
  • Payment of a Diversion Security Deposit, refundable upon verification of compliance.
  • Submittal of a Post-Project Compliance Report.

For most people in Covina, complying with all of these different steps might seem like a bit of a hassle. Fortunately, Junk King of Los Angeles can make it easy for people who are looking for a quick, affordable, and easy solution for C&D debris removal. 

How Can Junk King Help you with your C&D Debris Removal Needs? 

Whether you are an individual doing some simple renovations on your home, or a major building contractor that builds dozens of homes each year, finding a way to responsibly deal with your C&D debris should be a high priority. Here at Junk King of Los Angeles, when you hire us for your C&D debris removal needs, our teams will do all of the heavy lifting and hauling, so that you can focus on finishing up the construction. All of those leftover plywood scraps, broken shingles, and other surplus materials tends to add up over the course of a building project, and we make it easy for you to deal with those items efficiently and responsibly. 

Furthermore, when you hire us to haul away your C&D debris, our teams take the time to sort through items. If there are things that can be donated to Habitat for Humanity or other similar charities, we make sure that those items are sent to where they are needed. We also work with several different recycling centers in our region so as to ensure that the vast majority of what we haul away stays out of our fast-filling-up landfills. As a company, we are proud to say that we recycle, donate, or repurpose 60 percent of what we haul away, and with C&D debris, that number tends to be even higher as we comply with all of the regulations set forth by the City government of Covina outlined above. 

Even better is the fact we offer the most affordable and competitive prices on the market. Our company has some of the biggest junk hauling trucks on the market. At the same, we are also one of the few junk removal companies that charges you by volume, or the amount of space that your junk takes up in our truck. The combination of these two features means that we are generally able to offer the most affordable prices for C&D debris removal in Covina and the surrounding area. 

Lastly, when you use a professional junk removal company like Junk King for your C&D debris removal needs, you can depend on us to treat your home, business, and property with utmost respect.

If something were to occur, however, we most certainly will respond.
