San Marcos Junk Removal

The City of San Marcos asks, “Are you good to your mother?” They are referring to “Mother Earth.” As they proclaim on their recycling site, “We only have one Mother Earth, so be good to her. She likes it when you recycle as much as possible because it reduces the amount of waste that goes into landfills. When you properly dispose of your trash, hazardous and universal waste, it keeps the community looking beautiful and liter-free.”

Carlsbad Junk Removal

There might be some new recreational facilities coming to Carlsbad and that’s good news for anyone who enjoys the warm California weather. Last year, the Carlsbad City Council conducted an extensive study asking the local residents what they’d like to see developed in the area. The two big ideas that came out of this study was the development of a “multiuse, multigenerational recreation center” and an outdoor adventure park. That adventure park could be the place for all kinds of fun things like mountain biking, rock walls, zips lines, obstacle courses, and summer camps for kids. This is all further proof that the Carlsbad residents care about keeping their community a great place to live.

Another partner in that effort is Junk King North San Diego. This is a company dedicated to providing professional junk hauling services that helps Carlsbad residents clear the clutter from their homes and businesses. Although “junk” is in their name, there is a lot more that Junk King collects. This includes any kind of eyesore rubbish that has accumulated in your yard. Items like construction material left over from a remodeling job, roofing shingles, bricks, chunks of concrete, fencing, lumber scraps or dirt can all be loaded onto the back of the Junk King truck.

When that Junk King crew is finished cleaning up your yards, they can get busy on the inside of your home. They will be able to haul out any kind of old furniture, kitchen appliances, boxes of unwanted stuff or e-waste. Think about all the space you can reclaim if you have all of that junk removed from your home.

Once everything is loaded up on the Junk King N. San Diego truck, it will be headed out to one of three places: a recycling center, a charity, or a certified landfill. The first two options are part of Junk King’s overall eco-friendly policies. They will do all that is within their power to keep trash out of the area landfills. The last garbage that goes these, the better off all of Carlsbad will be.

How does Junk King rate with customer service? Take a look at these comments:

“Polite and courteous. Reasonably priced. They took great care to make sure the walls were not damaged when they removed my furniture.”

“Very convenient, fast service and your employees are wonderful. Reasonable prices.”

“The guys were friendly and professional, and completed the job so fast! They also cleaned up after themselves (dirt, dust, debris). I love that Junk King donates usable items and recycles so much. That is very important to us. Thank you!”

Add it all up and you can clearly see that when it comes to removing junk the right way, Junk King is the only call you need to make.

Upon retirement there are some folks who don’t know how to enjoy time off. Too much of their lives were dedicated to work. Without that they are looking for other ways to fill up their daily routines. This is where hoarding comes into play. What might have started out as a harmless collection soon becomes piles of junk that make living conditions unbearable.

E Waste Recycling in Escondido

Do you know about AB 341? That would be California’s New Commercial and Multi-Family Recycling Mandate. According to the law, “AB 341 requires that, effective July 1, 2012, all commercial businesses generating four-cubic yards or more of solid waste per week or multifamily residential dwellings of five units or more, must provide recycling services at their establishments.”

You can trace this mandate back to 1989 when the state of California passed AB 939. That was the law which required every municipality in the state to divert up to 50% of their waste away from a landfill. They managed to hit 64% by 2011 and now they’re shooting for 75% by 2020 which is where AB 341 comes in. This means that business owners and apartment landlords are on notice to provide recycling opportunities for their tenants. What does this mean to you? If you’re living in a building that doesn’t provide recycling you should contact the city. If you’re on your own in a home you can still do your part starting with all your collected e-waste.

Unlike an old sofa or mattress, it’s not hard to hide an outdate computer or laptop. You can tuck it into the back of your closet or under your bed. Over the years, you might be swapping out those computers and printers and soon storage space is at a premium. Add in the monitors, TVs and fax machines and pretty soon you can find yourself overrun with e-waste. It doesn’t have to be that way. One call to Junk King North San Diego will have your home free of e-waste in a snap.

In terms of recycling, Junk King is on board with the program. They’ll make sure your e-waste is dropped off at the right recycling center. The same can be said for the majority of everything else that Junk King will remove from your home. Even the big-ticket items like old stoves or dishwashers can be recycled and Junk King San Diego will see that the job is done right.

It might seem a bit over the top to have Junk King roll up in their big truck just to take away your single desktop computer but what is the alternative? You would have to drive to some drop-off center and take up your time. Plus it doesn’t just have to be that computer that you can get rid of. Keep looking around your home and yard and you’re sure to find plenty that can be hauled away. Who knows? You might end up filling the truck to the brim! Your home will certainly be junk free after that!

North San Diego Moving and Junk Hauling

Moving day is a day often filled with stress. You’re anxious about leaving behind friends and neighbors and heading into uncharted territory. You’re worried about movers who are moving slow and costing you a fortune. You’re also concerned that something might break. Then there is the inevitable “buyer’s remorse” and yes, that applies to renting too! Moving day doesn’t have to be so stressful especially if you follow these helpful guidelines.

When it comes to packing, it if it not furniture put it in a box. Yes, you can cart some of your important things like a computer or stereo in your own car but anything else should be boxed up. Those boxes should also be packed up well in advance of move day. You might think you can put off the last few items while the movers are doing their thing. The truth is movers can go fast and you don’t want to keep them waiting. Also, if you happen to run out of moving material like boxes, tape or packing stuff the movers can provide but it will cost you. All you should be doing on moving day is watching your stuff get loaded up. This holds especially true for your refrigerator. Even if you’re not bringing it with you, you want to make sure it is cleaned out and unplugged long before the movers show up.

Labeling your boxes is crucial. You should definitely designate which room a box belongs in but when you pack up special items like a toaster or coffeemaker you’ll want to know what box those items are in. You should also set aside an “overnight box.” This would be all the things you’ll need for bed like pillows and sheets.

As you get your appliances ready for transport, make sure to tape up the power cords so they aren’t dangling and causing a potential accident. If you have pets or kids they should be watched over somewhere else during the moving process. The temptation is to keep them in sight but things will go a lot smoother if you don’t have to keep an eye on them.

One of the most helpful tips would be to hire a company like Junk King North San Diego to take care of the move before the move. This would be moving out all your junk. You certainly don’t want to start live in a new place by carrying over all the stuff you were going to toss out anyway. Do you really want to pack up junk and take up valuable room on that moving truck? Hiring Junk King lets you get rid of piles of stuff. You can either leave it all behind for Junk King to pick up the day after your move or schedule the removal the week of the move. Either way, being junk free is going to make a huge difference as you settle into your new place.
