Anaheim Furniture Disposal

Anaheim Furniture RemovalLately, folks have been encouraged by law enforcement officials that if “we see something, say something.” This applies to everything from suspicious packages left behind to illegal dumping. It is that illegal dumping that is of great concern to Anaheim residents especially since we depend on a healthy tourist business. Nobody from out of town should be subjected to seeing abandoned furniture in a back alley or by the side of the road. For that matter, nobody in town should have to put up with that nonsense either.

The real danger with illegal dumping is how quickly is can spread. Someone can toss out a tire in an abandoned lot and overnight that place turns into a dump with all kinds of trash being “dropped off.” These illegal dump sites can also harbor hazardous waste as careless individuals think nothing of getting rid of those kinds of things. Their reasoning is that since somebody else dumped something they can too. The result is that the city is stuck with cleanup. Hopefully, that can happen before someone gets hurt.

Perhaps you’ve been tempted to get rid of furniture by taking a shortcut. For most folks, this means dragging the item down to the curb and sticking a “Free” sign on the piece. It’s a good way to get the thing out of your house but not off your street. In reality, if that item isn’t snatch up within a couple of hours, it’s going to sit there for a while. The longer it does sit on the curb the greater the chance of it getting hit by sprinklers or a dog. Then nobody will want it for sure. Of course, you’ll also have to contend with disapproving glances from your neighbor as they wonder how long they have to look at that old sofa.

A better choice would be to call up Junk King North OC and schedule a furniture removal appointment. Getting rid of bulky items like unwanted pieces of furniture is best served by a professional company like Junk King. They’re part of a national franchise that has high standards to live up to when it comes to making sure their customers are completely satisfied.

Anaheim Junk Recycling

recycling junk anaheimHave you ever taken a moment to think about where your trash ends up? We’re not talking about after you’ve scored the perfect “basket” when you toss out your soda can but what happens after that garbage has been picked up by the helpful garbage men. If you pitched in and sorted your recyclables then clearly that trash is bound for a second life. It will be reincarnated as another roll of paper or magazine or cereal box. Anything beats dumping in a dump, right?

Actually, that’s not just a good idea it happens to be the law as well. Way back in 1989, the state legislature passed Assembly Bill 939 which set a goal of having up to 50% of solid waste diverted away from landfills. It’s kind of hard to enforce a “goal” unless you write another law. Enter Assembly Bill 341 which was passed back in June of 2012. With this bill, commercial recycling became mandatory. This doesn’t mean that businesses were left high and dry to get the job done. There have been plenty of incentives, rebates and tax credits provided to help them get the recycling program fired up.

One local Anaheim company that takes recycling very seriously is Junk King North Orange County. They didn’t need to have a law to make them eco-friendly. That has been part of their operating philosophy since they began operations. Keep in mind that it’s not just the Junk King business office operations that involve recycling but it’s the actual way they conduct business. Every time Junk King picks up a load of stuff that a local resident wants thrown out they are going to make every effort to see that junk gets recycled. The goal of the state might be 50% but Junk King has managed to hit over 60%. Yes, up to 60% of everything they collect is recycled and we’re not just talking about paper and plastics but things like kitchen appliances, furniture, concrete, wood and even mattresses. Pretty much anything you’re throwing onto the back of the Junk King North OC truck can be recycled.

Technically, you won’t be “throwing” anything onto the truck because Junk King doesn’t want you lifting a finger. They are more than happy to do the work for you. That includes climbing up and down stairs and all the heavy lifting. Are you ready to clear out your garage? Clean up your backyard? Make room in your closets? If so, then the only call you need to make is to Junk King.
