Alternatives to Orange County Dumpster Rentals

One of the mainstays of the television crime drama is the back alley dumpster. How many times have you seen your favorite cop show where the detectives need to climb into a dumpster looking for clues? It’s almost as if every dumpster is some kind of magnet pulling in guns, knives, phones and purses. In extreme cases the bodies of victims have ended up in a dumpster. That’s because the very nature of a dumpster is one of “drive-by availability.” In other words, if you’ve got something in your car you want to get rid of and you see a dumpster you’re going to toss that object. Now imagine if you will that a dumpster is sitting in your driveway. Do you want that to be turned into a crime scene?

Obviously, that is a worst case scenario but it points out the biggest issue with renting a dumpster: you just don’t know what you’re going to attract. It might not be so bad if the dumpster could be dropped off in the morning and picked up in the afternoon. The problem is that most dumpster rental companies require you to keep that dumpster at least for 24 hours. Others require a minimum 3 day rental. Even if it only takes you a few hours to fill up that dumpster you’re still going to be stuck with all the potential problems.

Then there is the issue of placement to contend with. Although your front yard is your property the street in front of your house is not. If you place a dumpster there you might need a special permit especially if it is going to be blocking access to parking or become situated on a street cleaning day. Permits aren’t free, either. That will be an additional charge that could be tacked onto the rental fees.

The better alternative to renting a dumpster would be to hire Junk King Orange County. Junk King is part of a national franchise of junk removal specialists. When you hire Junk King OC you also hire the Junk King crew. These are the professional haulers who will carry out whatever items you want taken from your home or yards. That’s the other big difference with Junk King: You won’t have to do any of the heavy lifting. Instead, the Junk King crew will climb down the basement stairs or up into the attic. They’ll go into the garage or in the backyard. All you have to do is tell them what you want taken away and they’ll handle the rest. Junk King OC will also be in and out without any fuss. You schedule the appointment, they show up with their truck and the job is done. It doesn’t get any easier than that.

Orange County Dirt Removal and Hauling

There are many dedicated people who make it their business to get dirty in other’s people’s mess. One such fellow is Orange County’s Mike Miller who is the owner and operator of POOP 911. We’ll let Mike describe his business: “Locally owned and operated by Mike Miller. In addition to poop scooping, cat litter box and dog walking related services Orange County POOP 911 offers hosing off your patio or deck, deodorizing and we will even leave a little doggy treat for your favorite dog if you would like us to. Mike Miller’s very professional and dog loving staff will take the pain out of your grass and give you back the clean green backyard you always hoped to have. Our goal at Orange County POOP 911 is to make your life easier.”

Anyone who owns a pet will appreciate this kind of service. Those four legged fur balls have us trained pretty darn good. They make the mess and we clean it up or in the case of POOP 911, we hire someone to clean it up. Throw in all the food and water they can eat and drink and it’s a really sweet deal for the critters!

Another local business who doesn’t mind getting dirty is Junk King Orange County. Their official description is “professional junk hauler” but that doesn’t mean that dirt removal is off the list. In fact, a lot of Orange County residents have already discovered the benefits of hiring Junk King OC to help them with their DIY landscaping projects. After spending some time in their backyards these residents have created piles of dirt, sod, shrubs and tree limbs. Then when Junk King steps in with their crew and truck to haul that all away. If you’re lucky you’ll get to see the “before and after” of the Junk King crew. At their first stop on a typical work day, they’ll show up in their clean Junk King shirts only to have them covered in dirt within minutes. Don’t worry; a dirty Junk King crew means they are getting the job done and they wouldn’t have it any other way.

Along with your dirt removal project, Junk King OC could also help you clear out the clutter from your garages, sheds, closets and attics. If you want to finally reclaim those spaces let Junk King help by carting off all your “indoor” debris. Once again, nothing is out of bounds when it comes to junk removal. Even something as big a bulky as an old kayak or picnic table can fit on the back of the Junk King truck. You should also note that Junk King strives to properly dispose of every item they collect. Whether that means driving to a far off recycling facility or an available landfill for the dirt Junk King will get the job done and get it done right!
