How Junk King’s Dumpster Rental Services Contribute to a Greener Tomorrow
Known for its almost always perfect weather, miles of clean, sandy beaches and bountiful recreation, San Diego, California is recognized around the world as a premier vacation spot to travelers and as an oasis to its residents. “The birthplace of California”, as it is often called, San Diego was the first place in the great state to be settled by Europeans. From a small village to a booming tourist destination, San Diego’s growth first came in 1880 when several military stations set up shop and it then saw rapid, continuous growth after WWII.

This stunning city by the sea boasts a wealth of attractions, recreation and sights for residents and vacationers alike. The world-famous Balboa Park and San Diego Zoo, the USS Midway Museum, and La Jolla Cove are all stunning destinations and reminders of what makes San Diego such a desirable place to live, visit, and play.
The City of San Diego is also rich in culture and athletic entertainment. Home to nine art districts, there is so much to explore and learn. Sports is another major draw to San Diego as the city proudly houses the MLB team the San Diego Padres and was home to the San Diego Chargers from 1961 until 2017 when the team returned to its original home in Los Angeles.
San Diego lends way to diverse economy. According to Sandiegobusiness.org, its long-standing military roots and miles of waterfront property has led the city of San Diego to become home to the largest concentration of military in the world and homeport to more than 60 percent of the ships in the U.S. Pacific Fleet and more than one-third of the combat power of the U.S. Marine Corps.
San Diego is also a major player in technology and innovation. Ranked in the top 10 for both business and leisure destinations, San Diego’s convention and visitor industry is the third largest industry in San Diego, citing more than 34 million people visiting the city each year.
Green Living in San Diego
San Diego is widely known for its efforts in protecting our environment and for creating a cleaner future. In April of 2017, the city set a new record by becoming the number one ranked city in the nation for solar installation.
According to a news release found on Sandiego.gov, “in recent years, the City’s Development Services Department has focused on easing the permitting process for solar projects. Streamlining measures include:
· Moving solar permitting program functions to the City Operations Building to centralize review disciplines and increase customer convenience
· Reducing turnaround time for permitting of single family residential roof mounted solar projects to 3-5 days, compared to the previous 10-day wait period
· Increasing the hours for solar appointments and drop-off service
· Dedicating additional staff to the solar permitting program
· Creating a professional certification program to eliminate the plan review process, allowing staff to issue permits without a plan review
· Encouraging electronic submittal and review to eliminate need to make trips to City offices
· Allowing minor changes to plans to be approved in the field by an inspector”
“San Diego is setting the standard for other cities across the country when it comes to protecting our environment and creating a cleaner future,” Mayor Kevin Falconer said. “This new ranking is a testament to the many San Diego residents and businesses harnessing our natural resources as we march toward our goal of using 100 percent renewable energy throughout the city.”
Recycling and Waste Reduction in San Diego
In a city aimed at going green and creating long-lasting sustainability, the city government created its Zero Waste Plan which was approved and adopted unanimously by City Council on July 13, 2015. The Zero Waste Plan lays out strategies to divert 75 percent of all trash by 2020, 90 percent diversion by 2035 and an ultimate goal of zero waste by 2040, according to the city’s website.
The San Diego Union-Tribune credits the “Bottle Bill”, a 30-year-old statewide recycling incentive, has, for the better part of the last decade, led to more than 80 percent of beverage packaging has been recycled.
While recycling rates in San Diego seem to be dropping, the city is still doing fairly well in comparison to other cities across the country and government officials are still placing high priority on recycling, reuse and sustainability efforts.
San Diego Landfill Solutions
According to an article in the San Diego Union-Tribune, by 2040, elected officials want to divert 90 percent of everything that currently goes into landfills to recycling and composting facilities. The city most heavily relies on the Miramar Landfill which is said to be running out of space and its height has had to be increased, even though the city is essentially producing less garbage. Solutions and fixes range from those fighting for more landfill space and increasing landfill capacity to those pushing for a zero-waste community.

“I can’t say enough praise for Junk King San Diego. We hired Junk King after receiving several estimates to haul a staggering amount of junk from a hoarder’s house. Every junk removal company that quoted the job needed five days to get it done–not Junk King! In two days, they transformed a property with their fleet of trucks and their very hard working crew. Not only were they efficient, but their bid came in lower than all of their competition and thousands less than several. On top of that, Junk King left our property perfectly broom swept and as cleaned out as can be. Plus, they are super nice people! What a great company!”

“I had an 11 AM – 1 PM arrival window. I received a courtesy call at 10:30 AM letting me know they’d be arriving closer to the 1 PM time, which was very much appreciated. I had a huge mess to clean up, but Anthony and John were very polite and friendly about the task at hand. It was very hot outside, yet they worked efficiently through the heat to complete the job. I appreciate the hard work they did, and the great customer service they provided!”
