Spring Cleaning Tips in Monterey California

As you set out to tackle your spring cleaning project, you’ll want to get yourself organize. First, make sure you’ve got all of your cleaning supplies at the ready. You should also have a handy carrying bucket that you can take from room to room. As you step into that first room to clean you have a choice to make: De-clutter as you go or de-clutter first and then clean. One thing is for sure, you’re going to need to get rid of that clutter to really consider your home clean.

In the clutter arena there are trashcan worthy items and all the rest. The trashcan is anything you can simply toss out like junk mail, magazines, newspapers, pens that don’t work and all the small stuff. The “all the rest” would be those oversized items that aren’t so easily tossed out. We’re talking about things like furniture, appliances or mattresses. In other words, things that need two people to move. If you de-clutter these objects first then you’ve going to open up some floor space that will need cleaning. It makes sense to move out those big objects and to get that done you need to hire Junk King Monterey.

Junk King of Monterey is part of the same national franchise of professional junk removers which has been around for over eight years. Here in Monterey they’ve created a strong following of happy customers.

“Outstanding! Mario’s team of professionals were punctual, courteous, efficient and all around a pleasure to deal with,” writes Tristan on his Yelp review. “Removed the debris from a kitchen demolition and price very fair. Highly recommended.”

Frank, another Yelp reviewer, proclaims, “I had them come to home in Aptos this last weekend and things went as planned. They were fast and gave me a fair price. I would definitely recommend them if you need some junk hauled away.”

Tamara needed her hot tub taken away. Who did she call? Junk King Monterey, of course, “I had the Junk King crew come out and haul away my large old hot tub. It became a bit more of a job than expected,” she writes on her Yelp review. “Apparently the person who installed it, intended for it to never move. I want to express my thanks and appreciation for how professional, personal and what a great job was done getting that big piece of junk off my deck. The price was very fare and I will recommend The Junk King to all of my family and friends. You have one very satisfied customer.”

Monterey Computer Monitor Recycling and Disposal

Does anyone still have a VCR? Sure, you might have spent years taping your favorite programs but now they’ll all available online. Do you really need to keep stacks of tapes cluttering up your living room? Even if you have some precious memories recorded on video you would be better served having that video transferred to a DVD. Once that is done you really have no excuse to hold onto that VCR. In fact, when it comes to old stereos, copiers, fax machines, computers or televisions you shouldn’t be holding onto those either. All of that stuff is considered e-waste and you should be thinking about how to get rid of it the right way. Here’s a hint: Junk King.

According to the Electronic Waste Recycling Act that became law in 2003, you’re not allowed to throw out any e-waste in the garbage. Sure, you might be able to slip something into a garbage can and think it’s gone for good. However, your garbage men are well within their rights to report the infraction. That could mean a hefty fine. The reason this is so important is that when those types of junk are broken up or crushed, they can release harmful toxins. That’s why they have to be carefully disassembled.

A quick Internet search might reveal an e-waste drop off sponsored by a local charity. More often than not you’ll find that the event has come and gone. Either that or it will be scheduled with a small window of opportunity that turns out not to be much of an opportunity for you and your busy schedule. You choices then become to either hang onto that stuff (which really isn’t much of a choice!) or call Junk King Monterey.

That’s not anything you have to concern yourself with. Not only will the Junk King crew load up all your e-waste but they’ll make sure it gets to those recycling centers at no extra charge.

You can call Junk King to take away an old computer or monitor but why stop there? If they’re going to pull up to your house in a big truck, why not take advantage of that hauling space and have it all your junk taken away once and for all? You won’t have to drag anything out to the curb. The Junk King crew will do all the work for you. Is it time to say good-bye to your e-waste? Then call Junk King Monterey to get the job done.
