Clearly, we’re not talking about a pile of junk mail or some magazines. Instead, it’s the big stuff like an old couch, chair or table. It could also be things like clothes that aren’t being worn, appliances that aren’t being used and e-waste that has been replaced. That’s getting to be a long list! Instead of giving up your weekend to get rid of all of that, why not turn the job over to Junk King. They’ll be able to clear out all that clutter in no time.

Monterey Junk Removal In 2014

If you want a perfect example of how the citizens of Monterey are dedicated to keeping the environment safeguarded, look no further than Save Our Shores. This is a group of dedicated volunteers who banded together back in the late 70s to protest the placement of oilrigs along the Central Coast. They won that battle and has been helping the Monterey Bay area ever since. Every year, Save Our Shores sponsors cleanup days. This is when they reach out to the communities and pull in civic groups and other like-minded volunteers to spend a few hours picking trash from the beaches. The hope of Save Our Shores is that one day they can go out of business because the shores are 100% clean.

Another local company that is helping keep Monterey’s environment clean is Junk King. Every time Junk King sets up a junk removal appointment, they are actually keeping the cycle of reuse and refurbish going. As the Junk King crew loads up your junk, they’ll be sorting it. The e-waste will go to one recycling center. This includes all you outdated computers, laptops, printers, copiers and fax machines. Another pile would be all you construction waste that can be ground down to raw materials. This would be things like bricks, stones, concrete, cement and dirt. Then there is the furniture and appliance pile. These items could find their way to a local charity where they will be fixed up and resold to support the charity. In many cases, your furniture could merely be donated to families in need.

You’ll notice that in all of those junk removal examples, nothing seems to end up in a landfill. That is the goal of Junk King: to keep as much out of area dumps as possible. To date, the Junk King franchises have managed to divert up to 60% of everything they collect away from those nasty dumping grounds.

Whether you’re charged for a quarter, a half or the full truck you’re sure to be getting a great deal. Check out the reviews and you’ll see why there are so many satisfied Junk King customers.

Watsonville Junk Removal

As cities go, Watsonville has a lot to boast about. Here’s how we’re described on the official city page: “Watsonville, California is known all over the world for its long and rich heritage as a center for agriculture – especially berries. What many may not know is that Watsonville is a proving ground for entrepreneurs and businesses from all types of industries and emerging technologies. Its central location, nestled between the Monterey Bay and the Santa Cruz mountains, offers growing companies quick and easy highway access, while avoiding daily traffic snarls. Watsonville’s location is topped only by its ideal climate and the rustic, small town charm of a close-knit rural community. The Watsonville Area offers beaches, mountains, wine, food, activities and more!” Sounds like a great place to live!

However, there is one thing that they left out. Watsonville was one of the first cities in the region to adopt automatic trash removal. This means we put those fleet of trucks to work with the mechanical arms. Those arms reach out and snatch the garbage cans for a quick flip into the truck. The result is a faster and cheaper way for the city to remove garbage. The one drawback is that it makes getting rid of bulky items more challenging for the homeowner. You can no longer set something on the curb and hope it will get picked up. If it doesn’t fit into the garbage can then you’re stuck with that item. At least you were before Junk King set up operation in Monterey. Now, getting rid of your oversized items has never been easier.

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.

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.

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.”

Do You Really Know What Junk Is In Your Monterey Home?

Hands down, Monterey has some of the best examples of historic homes in the entire state. You don’t have to take our word for it; you can see for yourself. Many of these historic homes are open for tours. For instance, the Casa Serrano Adobe is one of Monterey’s oldest adobe structures which dates all the way back to 1843.

Monterey Grill Disposal and Recycling

There is an offshoot of the recycling philosophy that you might be using and not even know it. This is “upcycling”  which basically means repurposing a disposable item. With true recycling items like paper, plastic or aluminum are grinded down into pulp and then mixed into a slurry the reconstitutes them as raw material to be used again. Upcycling is repurposing without the grinding.

A prime example is any glass jar with a lid that you wash out and use for the storage of things like buttons, screws or nails. An old tire that is turned into a planter for the garden is another good upcycling trick. You can upcycle copy paper by flipping it over and printing on the blank side. These are all very prudent and practical examples of this practice but there are some things that simply won’t fit like you old backyard barbeque grill. After many summer seasons of grilling that probably barbeque is ready to be replaced but what can you do with the old one? Tuck it behind the garage and hope no one will notice? It can’t be thrown out onto the curb because it will just stay there until you’re fined and ordered by the city to get rid of it.

Monterey Patio Furniture Disposal

As the summer begins to wind down hopefully you had a good season outdoors on your patio. Nothing can be spending a cool evening with a glass of wine and some good friends. Or a lazy Sunday afternoon curled up in the shade with a good book. This summer season could have given you the opportunity to assess the status of your patio furniture especially if that became a hub for you and your family. Did your patio furniture hold up? Did it get baked in the sun? Did a surprise rain storm soak it? The answer to any one of those question could determine if you should be in the market for new patio furniture. If so then you’re in luck because this is the perfect time of the year to make a purchase like that.

At the end of summer, retailers know you’ll be thinking about the fall and upcoming holidays. Don’t be surprised to find Halloween decorations already on display. To make room for the fall merchandise, retailers are going to need to clear the floor of their summer stock. That means the patio furniture has got to go. Translation?  You’re going to find some amazing deals.

Before you head out to score some new patio furniture take a moment to consider how you want to use this space. Did you end up spending having a lot of dinners out there? Maybe it’s time for a bigger table? Would a table with an umbrella stand in the middle be a benefit? Now would be the time for that kind of upgrade. If you want to make that kind of change make sure to measure the space you have to work with. A table in a showroom can look deceptively smaller or bigger than what you might be used to.

Depending on the circumstances, your patio furniture could be outdoors year round. This means you need to make sure your new furniture will be of the durable variety. Did you notice that your cushions pick up too much dirt? Might be time to change the color scheme of your furniture. Even if you get an indestructible model made of wrought iron you still want to keep it clean. Hosing it down every couple of weeks is a good way to go. One material to be leery of is wicker. Although it looks great it doesn’t hold up to the elements. Wicker patio furniture is best used when it can remain in the shade like on a porch and protected from the elements.

As for getting rid of that old furniture that won’t be a problem as long as you hire Junk King Monterey. They’re the local business who specializes in all kinds of junk removal. You won’t be able to throw out your patio furniture. Let Junk King Monterey cart it off. While they are at it they can cart off any other junk you want gotten rid of. It’s the perfect way to end the summer.
