Got Junk Items in the Santa Cruz?

A Santa Cruz couple found a unique way to celebrate their recent wedding. Instead of throwing a big reception, they brought their wedding party to the Davenport Main Beach and set about to clean up the shores. The couple teamed up with the Santa Cruz-based Save Our Shores organization which sponsors groups to do weekly cleanups at the beach. This is a big issue because of all the careless campers who spend the weekend enjoying the great outdoors then leave all their trash behind. On this special day, the wedding party hit the trail leading to the beach with buckets and metal grabbers. After a just a couple of hours they managed to collect 104 pounds of trash and 77 pounds of recyclables. Not bad a bad way to celebrate a marriage.

 

If you’ve got junk in Santa Cruz then maybe you want to surprise your spouse with a cleanup. That can happen when you call Junk King Monterey and set up a removal appointment. As a couple you both probably agree on what you would like to have removed from your home. These would be the big objects that take at least a pair of movers and a truck to get the job done. Because of all that extra effort, those objects have probably stayed where they’re at for a long time. One call to Junk King can have all that stuff gone in a day. Imagine the surprised look on your partner’s face when they come home to find all that junk gone!

 

Just because you’ve got junk doesn’t mean you have to hold onto it for the rest of your life. Too often we bring our junk with us from move to move. Wouldn’t it be nice to finally toss it out? Instead of keeping your garage and closets cluttered, why not hire Junk King for a removal appointment?

 

In terms of cost, Junk King Monterey has an offer you can’t refuse. They’re going to charge you based on the amount of space your junk will be taking up on the back of their truck. Since they want to fill up that truck every day, they’re going to make sure they pack everything in tight. This means you’re going to be getting a good deal if you’re throwing out a little or a lot! That includes all your e-waste like computers, printers and fax machines that you’ve replaced. It can all be tossed onto the back of the Junk King truck where you can wave good-bye once and for all. If you’ve got junk, then Junk King is the only call to make.

 

Back To School Junk Removal in Monterey CA

There’s good news for Monterey County 10th graders. According to the California Department of Education more of these students are passing the California High School Exit Exam then compared to past generations. For the past school year, 80% of students passed the English and math portions of the test. This represents a 3% gain in English and 1% gain in math. Any gain is a good gain!

How is your student with their homework habits? The goal is to make sure they do it on time and right. That can be helped by making sure they understand the assignment. You should encourage your child, no matter what age, to develop a relationship with their teacher which will allow them to ask any follow-up questions about the assignments. Students should also get into the habit of taking a lot of notes in class. Often they aren’t taught about these basic skills and you need to fill in the gap for them. Once they get into the habit of taking notes, they shouldn’t stop!

You can also help them get organized by making sure they keep their subjects separate. A few color-coordinated files will do the trick. Good homework habits depend on a distraction free zone at home. Often you’ll send your kid up to their room to do their homework but that might not be the best place especially if they can dive into some web surfing or have a video game console up there. Why not set up a homework zone closer to your eye-line? Perhaps this can be a desk or corner of a room with a dedicated computer just for homework. To help set up this space, you might need to call upon Junk King Monterey County. These are the experts when it comes to carting off trash and they won’t have any problems helping you with the clutter in your home.

Hiring a Junk King crew is like hiring your own private moving company. Instead of moving your stuff from one home to the next, they’ll be moving your junk away permanently. Ironically, this could be some of the same junk you brought over from the last move! This might also be the time when your child is making the transition from their Disney themed bedroom to a more mature (for a teen) decor. Out goes the racing car bed and in comes the single bed. Here Junk King Monterey can help loading up all those out dated furniture pieces along with clothes and toys they’ve outgrown. Yes, the kids are growing up and that means time to get rid of their old clutter. A home that is free of clutter is a much better homework zone. Let Junk King help with that back to school project!
