Monterey Basement Junk Removal

You can’t think about Monterey without thinking about the beautiful beaches. They are what make this region so idyllic not only for the locals but for every visitor who is lucky enough to pass through. Yet, beyond the picture postcard perfect images there some who treat those beaches as their own dumping ground. It’s disgusting but luckily there is “Save Our Shores.” This is an international group of volunteer environmentalists who dedicate time throughout the year for cleanup of some of our most treasured shore lines.

Who is an “environmental volunteer?” That would pretty much be anyone who wants to make Monterey even more beautiful. Church groups, cub scouts, fraternities, families and friends can all participate. On a recent Saturday, 3,491 volunteers spread out across more than 70 sites in Monterey and Santa Cruz counties for the Coastal Cleanup Day. In Monterey County alone there were 1,137 volunteers who gladly gave up three hours of their Saturday to pitch in for the cleanup effort. The mission was simple: pick up anything that didn’t belong on the beach:

“This is generally a pretty clean beach, but last year we collected more than 40 bags of dog poop here,” said Laura Kasa, executive director of Save Our Shores. “We’re also going to find a lot of cigarette butts out here today,” Kasa said. “I did a cleanup yesterday on a very small beach and picked up about 600 pieces of trash, half of which were cigarette butts. Cigarette butts seem small and innocuous, but they are little time bombs that fish, birds, even dogs can eat. I met somebody yesterday who said their dog ate four cigarette butts and ended up in a hospital.”

By the end of the day, 16,827 pounds of trash were picked up Saturday in Monterey and Santa Cruz counties. That’s a lot of trash to be left behind by such careless visitors. Perhaps reading about this type of clean up might inspire you to think about your own trash. We’re not talking about the trash you get to throw out every week but about that stuff which ends up “sticking around.” This would be the big bulky items which really have no business being a part of your lifestyle.

While it would be great if you could enlist an army of volunteers to help you clear out your basement, attic, closet or garage the only help you’ll really need is from Junk King Monterey. Actually, hiring Junk King is like hiring your own army. They’ll move in at the scheduled time and move out with your junk without you lifting a finger. You get to call all the shots and Junk King Monterey gets to do all the work. They wouldn’t want to have it any other way! Give them a try today. The sooner you clean up your junk the sooner you can get to the beaches!

Monterey Old TV Disposal and Buying Guide

Ever since “Jaws” hit the movie theaters back in 1977 summer has become a time when Hollywood releases its big blockbusters. To the diehard aficionado there are some movies that simply must be experienced in a theater. However, thanks to advances in movie playback and television technology it’s easy to convert just about any room in your house into your very own private screening room. This will allow you to bring the blockbusters right into your theater at any time of year. First, you want to make sure you’ve got the very best in television technology. As you go shopping for new television you might want to keep the following tips in mind:

  • Take Good Measurements

There are many TV salespeople who can tell you dozens of stories about consumers buying a television only to return it within hours because it’s the wrong size. Often this is because they are trying swap out an old television for a new television and make it fit the same entertainment center or TV stand. In many cases that just won’t work. Before you head out to the store you need to measure the space where your TV will go and make sure you leave a 2 inch border around the entire set and behind the set that will help with installation and ventilation.

  • Consider the Room

There are optimal viewing distances for your new TV that you should consider with regard to screen size. For instance with a 32 inch LCD TV you should have at least 4 to 5 feet between you and the TV. The wider the screen the more space you need. When you get into the 50 inch so then you should be back by at least 8 to 10 feet. These will give you the best results for watching a widescreen feature.

  • Delivery

The final issue regarding size has to do whether or not you’ll be able to take your TV home in the back of your SUV. While you might be eager to get everything plugged in and fired up you might also discover that your car is too small and you’ll have to wait for home delivery. Just factor that into your shopping experience.

This same issue applies when it comes to get rid of the old TV. You might not have the space in your car for that task either. That’s why you need to bring in some professional help in the form of experienced junk haulers like Junk King Monterey. These are the guys who can take away your TV in a flash and load it up onto their truck for drop off at a proper recycling facility. As long as are coming over for your TV, this same crew could also take away any other junk you’ve got laying around taking up space. Won’t it make watching movies on your new TV a lot better to know your home is completely free of clutter? Of course it will!
