If you live in the North San Diego area you will most likely need to get rid of some large unwanted items at some point. Like right after Christmas!
Of course, if your junk items are small enough to fit into your home’s recycling bin, then you’re covered. But it’s the large stuff that can be challenging when trying to figure out the best way to dispose of it.
The Challenge of DIY Junk Removal
The first issue most people have is that their vehicle isn’t large enough to put all the junk in.
And, even if you do have a truck to load it all into, taking it to the dump may not be all that simple. Across the state, landfills are rapidly filling up and disappearing, not to mention expensive to use. As of recently, San Diego County only had four active landfills available, along with eight transfer stations.
And this is for a County with a population of over 3,000,000 people!
When your junk items are large and heavy, like old appliances, remodeling construction debris, or large furniture, just getting it out to the sidewalk or driveway can be strenuous and even a bit hazardous.
Even if you have someone helping you move these large junk items, you will still need a suitable vehicle to haul it all off to dispose of it. Even if your junk items are accepted at a landfill or transfer station (and not everything is!) taking your junk to a landfill isn’t your only option nor is it even your best option.
The bottom line is that you may find that doing your own junk removal in the North San Diego area can be very challenging.
The good news is that you have other options!
Junk Removal Services for All of North San Diego
Smart homeowners and business owners realize that hiring someone else to do a job for them requires budgeting. And that includes hauling off household junk or even old office equipment. That’s because hauling unneeded or unwanted exercise equipment, old furniture, yard waste, and construction debris involves an expense.
But, too often, the thinking is that doing the hauling and disposal themselves will be the least expensive option.
However, it’s often far more cost-effective and efficient to outsource it to a local professional firm, like Junk King North San Diego. Whether you have to pay your own employees to do it or you do it yourself, that’s time taken away from other work. And, if you’re a homeowner, your time is valuable, as well.
Depending on where you live or work in the North San Diego region, there may be County restrictions regarding what you can haul or dispose of.
When you factor in the need for a suitable vehicle, fuel costs, dump fees, and any other items you need to have like tarps and tie-downs, the best approach is to outsource this work to a professional firm like Junk King North San Diego.
Ultimately, the benefits of using us for your business junk far outweighs any possible benefits of a “DIY” approach.
Proper Junk Removal is a Thing!
The majority of everything we throw into the garbage each day can actually be reused in some manner. Whether that’s reuse, repurposing, or simply recycling. This is true for most household and office waste that’s generated, and it’s especially true of what we tend to call “junk.”
Here are a few “trash facts” to consider:
- Almost 75 percent of the garbage in America that goes into what is known as the “municipal waste stream,” or MWS, can be recycled.
- But the United States averages a recycling rate of only about 30 percent of it.
- About 45 percent of what could be recycled is landfilled or incinerated.
- According to the EPA, the U.S. generates close to 270 million tons of waste every year, or about four and half pounds per person each day.
- Almost 75 percent of that could be recycled, but only 30 percent is, which means we add about 100,000,000 tons of recyclable trash into landfills.
The good news is that the waste that we usually refer to as “junk” can often be reused “as is” or with minor repairs. And if they can’t be reused or repurposed, most of the materials on practically all junk items are recyclable. That simply means most junk items can be kept out of the landfills or incineration plants with just a little processing.
Unfortunately, most people just throw away what they no longer want or need in the trash.
With over a million residents living in the North San Diego area alone, it really is important to keep as much waste and junk out of our landfills as possible.
So, if simply “dumping” your junk isn’t a good option – for you or the environment – what can you do with it?
