Do you have old furniture that needs to be recycled? Click here to book and appointment!
Escondido is one of the oldest cities in the San Diego County region and, while certainly not the biggest city, it is still a community of a respectable size with over 150,00 people.
And, like, other cities and towns in the United States, the folks there tend to move around quite a bit.
It could be a cross-country move or simply a “cross County” move to one of the nearby cities such as San Marcos, Poway, Valley Center, and San Pasqual Valley. And, since Escondido is located just about 35 miles northwest of San Diego, that city is often a destination move, as well.
But regardless of where people choose to go, one of the by-products of any move is the disposal of older, unwanted, or unneeded furniture.
Of course, old furniture disposal can happen for a variety of other reasons, but the problem remains the same: what do you do with it?
Which is why Junk King North San Diego specializes in furniture removal and disposal.
Junk King: Escondido’s Furniture Recycling Service
No matter where you live in Escondido – maybe in Felicita, South Boulevard, Midway, Eureka, or even East Grove – if you need to get rid of some old furniture, that can be a challenging task.
One of the problems with disposing of “junk” items such as old furniture pieces is figuring out where to take or what to do with them. For decades, the default option has been to take bulky junk items that can’t be reused to the local landfill.
These “dump runs” have resulted in a history of landfills across the country being filled to capacity while the number of operable landfills today is shrinking rapidly. In fact, the EPA has estimated that there are more than 10,000 old – and filled – municipal dump site in the US.
As for today, according to the Infrastructure Report Card, last year in 2021, there were around 1,250 landfills.
There is no real consensus, however, on how long these will last or if we will create new facilities. One report predicted that we were on pace to run out of room in our landfills before 2036. On the other hand, some experts argue that landfills are only in short supply in certain regions so those areas must transport garbage and solid waste to other areas for landfilling.
The answer for old furniture disposal is to pursue furniture recycling.
The truth is that almost all pieces of household and office furniture can be recycled completely or in part. And the beauty of this approach is that when it comes to finding a reliable furniture recycling service, Escondido has Junk King North San Diego.
And that’s because Junk King is much more than merely a great junk removal service – we’re committed to being “green” and environmentally friendly.
Furniture Recycling: Why It’s Good for the Environment
For people living in and around Escondido, disposing of old, unwanted, and unusable furniture can be a simple task with Junk King furniture recycling.
We are strong proponents of recycling in general and of used furniture recycling in particular.
Although it is understandable to want to know how to recycle furniture for free, about the only way to do that is to load and transport the furniture to a proper recycling facility yourself. Short of that, unless your old furniture can be reused, it’s not likely you’ll find an organization or service that will pick it up and remove it for free.
Regardless of how you have your old furniture removed from your property, the more important thing is to make sure it will be recycled if at all possible.
Why is that?
According to one furniture retailer,
“Recycling of old furniture saves much energy as they do not require any processing. It saves natural resources and reduces the level of harmful substances that are released in air.”
And, as the website Green Hospitality points out,
“Recycling furniture has benefits for both the earth and others around you. The first and most obvious benefit is helping the environment by saving resources and not adding pressure to landfills. Furniture recycling can help us to convert used materials into new products, reducing the need to extract new, raw materials. Both metal extraction and deforestation are detrimental to our natural environment. Furniture recycling is one of the great ways to conserve our limited raw materials and protect natural habitats for the future.”

Oh! And you can expect us to clean up after ourselves once we’re done and to leave you house or apartment undamaged.
How Many Items are the Most They Can Pick Up at Once?
The answer to that question is: It depends!
If your furniture pieces are relatively small and consist of items such as side tables, dining room chairs, and small bookcases, then we can probably fit an entire house-full into one empty truck.
However, if you are getting rid of six-piece sectional sofas, floor-to-ceiling bookcases or hutches, and other relatively large pieces, then not as much, of course. This is why our teams will want to provide you with a free estimate before loading your unwanted furniture items. We want to know how much room your pieces will take up in our trucks, as well.
As it turns out, our trucks are especially large for our industry with boxes that measure 8 feet wide by 12 feet long and 5 feet tall. That means we can manage up to 480 cubic feet, or almost 18 cubic yards of furniture items in one truck.
And weight really isn’t an issue, which is important when you consider what is the max weight of a pickup truck: between 1,000 to 4,000 pounds depending on the size of the truck. And the max volume in a full-size pickup truck bed filled to top of cab is only 4.44 cubic yards.
So, it’s pretty clear that used furniture disposal from Junk King is a far better deal.
