You know a city is serious about their beaches when they provide a live surf-cam throughout the day. It’s just one of the many ways that Capitola takes care of its residents and visitors. Apparently, what the city elders and developers are doing is working. Recently, Capitola was named one of Sunset Magazine’s “best beach towns.”
As a beach community that is just a two-hour drive from San Francisco, Capitola depends on visitors keeping the local economy alive. That is why it takes extra care to maintain the public parks and beaches. In fact, Capitola was among the first California communities to enact a ban on plastic grocery bags. We take our commitment to the environment very seriously. A terrific partner in this commitment is Junk King Monterey. These are the junk removal specialists who were going green long before it was popular!
Junk King Monterey serves all of Capitola on their daily pickup routes. They are also part of a national franchise that sets the tone for every branch of Junk King. That starts with those eco-friendly policies. Junk King is dedicated to keeping as much junk out of area landfills as possible. They are happy to report that they divert an average of 60% of everything they collect away from those dumps. That is extremely good news for the local environment.
Junk King accomplishes these impressive recycling numbers with a little “out of the box” thinking. It is easy to find a recycling center to handle things like papers, plastics, glass, and metal. The challenge is for the bigger items like furniture. When a Junk King crew comes across a piece of furniture that might have a little life left in it, they’ve been instructed to drop that piece off at a charity that specializes in refurbishing. With a little TLC, the sofa can be as good as new and it won’t be crammed into a landfill.
E-waste collection is another area where Junk King focuses on recycling. All your old laptops, printers, copiers, fax machines, and televisions have to be disassembled and sorted. Dropping those pieces off at the right facility isn’t a problem for Junk King. They make those runs every week. All of these recycling options are included in the Junk King package. You don’t have to ask; it will be taken care of automatically.
Hiring Junk King Monterey for a junk removal project is a great way to kickoff the year. You can get a true jump on your big spring cleaning project by clearing out all of your junk in the coming days. That way when spring officially arrives you can check out the surf cam and hit the beach because your cleanup will already be done!
