Orange County Junk Removal Prices

There is a bug that is causing all kinds of increased stress levels for California’s orange growers. The bug in question is the Asian citrus psyllids. They are about the size of a chocolate sprinkle but can certainly create havoc on a grove of orange trees. When these same bugs found their way to Florida, they ended up costing that state’s citrus growers upwards of $4.5 billion in damages. Here’s the thing: they only found two of those nasty critters in a bug trap so there is no way of telling yet if we’re in the throes of a full-fledged infestation or not. Just to be prepared, plans are being drawn up for a quarantine to limit the exposure.

If the bugs do take a bite out of the California orange crop it’s going to require a huge clean up. Can you remember the last major cleanup you had to do around your house? Was it a spring cleaning floor-to-ceiling mop up? Those are great to do once a year and definitely can change the atmosphere of your home in a good way. There’s nothing like coming back to a clean house after a hard day’s work. We’re lucky in Orange County that flood damage is not an issue. Yes, we get our fair share of rains but for the most part we’re spared the kind of torrential downfall like they recently experienced back on the East Coast with Hurricane Sandy. Still, rains can lead to another type of clean up.

Then there is the clean up you might need after a remodeling project. Usually, there will be a demolition phase like if you’re replacing kitchen cabinets or putting in new windows. That’s going to create piles of debris. Way too much for a typical garbage pickup. Another kind of cleanup project is your basic “get rid of the junk.” This is when your available space has reached critical mass and you need to make room. For any of those big cleanup projects you should be thinking about calling up Junk King OC.

Junk King is the Orange County business whose only focus is the proper removal and disposal of any type of junk. The best part of hiring Junk King (besides them doing all the work!) is their pricing structure. Junk King charges you by the volume of space your junk will take up on their truck. This estimate is prepared in advance of the actual work by a Junk King supervisor who will come out to your property to assess the project. Once that estimate is agreed upon its locked. There won’t be any extra fees or charges. The only time it would change is if your junk ends up taking up less room. Then you won’t be paying as much! When it comes to junk removal, Junk King Orange County is really the only way to go.

E Waste Recycling in Orange County

Every now and again, local organizations will pop up with an electronic waste collection day. Recently the city of San Juan Capistrano teamed up with Goodwill of Orange County for just such an event. It was a 4 hour collection held at City Hall one Saturday morning. Did you miss it? That’s understandable because it’s not easy for folks to load up their car with all their e-waste on a Saturday and haul it downtown. But just because you missed this event doesn’t mean you should give up on e-waste recycling. You can properly dispose of all your e-waste and other unwanted bulky items when you contract Junk King Orange County. Best of all, it will be on your schedule!

The holidays are the perfect time for a junk removal day especially all your e-waste junk. You’ll want to make room for all the new gadgets you’ll be getting this season.
