Construction and Demolition Debris in Riverside: What are your Options?

Construction and Demolition Debris in Riverside: What are your Options?

Are you a builder in Riverside, California who struggles to get rid of the construction and demolition (C&D) debris that your construction projects generate? Or perhaps a landscaping business that always struggles with removing the yard junk that some of your clients ask you to get rid of as you renovate their yard? Or maybe you are simply a homeowner who enjoys taking on “do it yourself” home renovation projects on the weekend? No matter what the case might be, dealing with C&D debris can be a headache, especially with the recent increase in state regulations regarding proper disposal techniques for construction and demolition debris. 

For homeowners, construction companies, landscaping professionals, and others who live in Riverside, California, Junk King of Riverside is proud to be the top-rated junk removal company in the southern California region. If the municipal waste management company is giving you a hard time about the C&D debris you want to be hauled away, we can help you with all your C&D debris removal needs. In many cases, we may even be able to haul away your construction and demolition debris on the same day you call us! 

Below, we briefly explain how Junk King of Riverside can help individuals and businesses deal with their C&D debris removal needs in an efficient, affordable, legal, and environmentally friendly way.  


Why is Construction and Demolition Debris So Regulated? 


Even after a small kitchen renovation, most people will be surprised by the amount of leftover objects, scrap material, and junk items that accumulate throughout the building process. Construction and demolition debris, as is to be expected, is generally heavier, bulkier, and harder to get rid of than other common sources of waste. This is why most municipal waste management companies have strict regulations on how much C&D debris they will haul away and how often they offer this service. In many cases, you may have to break down your C&D debris into smaller (and less heavy) fragments, and even then there will most likely be several items that the garbage company simply will not haul away for you. 

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) states that across the country, over 600 million tons of construction and demolition debris were generated in 2018. That amount is more than double the total amount of generated municipal solid waste (MSW). Of those 600 million tons of C&D debris, demolition represents more than 90 percent of total C&D debris generation, while construction represents less than 10 percent.

On a national scale, the amount of construction and demolition debris is expected to continue to rise on a yearly basis. The combination of a growing population and an aging housing stock is one of the reasons why an estimated 200,000 to 300,000 homes are demolished each and every year in the United States while the projected number of single-family housing units starts in 2023 is estimated to be over 1.2 million

Unfortunately, much of this heavy and bulky construction and demolition waste still ends up in our nation´s already overcrowded landfills. Plywood and gypsum sheets, chunks of broken concrete, broken windows and doors, old roofing materials, and piles of old insulation, despite mostly being recyclable, are often simply taken directly to the nearest dump. Despite the fact that many types of C&D debris generally have a much higher recycling rate than other sources of trash, illegal dumping of C&D debris is reportedly on the rise in many key areas of the country.

What is the Best Way to Get Rid of your Construction and Demolition Debris in Los Angeles? 


Hauling leftover plywood sheets and a broken window pane out to the curb will most likely land you a fine from the local city council. Repeat offenders may find that the municipal waste management company even suspends their regular trash pickup. For construction companies, dealing with regular construction waste streams can be one of the most difficult and costly parts of the building process. 

 With Junk King of Los Angeles, however, individuals, homeowners, and builders don’t have to worry about strict regulations and potential fines. After years of working in the community, our team of professional junk haulers has developed an extensive network of relationships with thrift stores, charities, donation centers, recycling businesses, and other similar companies. This allows us to make every possible effort to donate, refurbish, or recycle the junk items that we pick up. In fact, over 60 percent of all the junk items we pick up are either donated or recycled. In the specific case of construction and demolition debris, we work with all major recyclers to ensure that all of your C&D debris is properly recycled, donated, or discarded in a safe and legal manner. 

Furthermore, Junk King´s professional junk removal teams are here to do all of the heavy lifting and hauling for you. We know that cleaning up after a construction project is hard work. For building companies and contractors who are anxious to move on to the next project, you can simply let us know whenever you are done with one building project, and we will promptly show up to haul away your C&D debris. This ensures that you will never have to worry about potential fines or citations, while also not wasting valuable labor costs on cleanup. 

As long as your junk items are not classified as toxic waste, we can most likely help you get rid of those items in a timely and cost effective manner. Junk King offers both residential and commercial junk removal services including business-to-business (B2B) junk removal options for every type of business. We are proud to offer top-rated junk removal services to the Riverside area, including the areas of Bloomington, Colton, Corona, Fontana, Grand Terrace, Jurupa Valley, Loma Linda, March Air Reserve Base, Moreno Valley, Norco, Redlands, Rialto, Riverside, and San Bernardino.

The Best Way to Deal with Leaves this Fall in Riverside

The Best Way to Deal with Leaves this Fall in Riverside

Did you know that yard waste accounts for over 12 percent of all municipal solid waste (MSW) generated across the United States each year? To put that number into perspective, homeowners across the country could reductively reduce the amount of waste we produce each year by over 35 million tons each year, simply by finding a better way to deal with the leaves that fall, the brush we clear from our property, the grass trimmings we create every time we mow, and other common sources of yard waste.

Fortunately, the total amount of yard waste that ends up in our landfills has been steadily decreasing in recent decades. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), “the decline in yard trimmings generation since 1990 is largely due to state legislation discouraging yard trimmings disposal in landfills, including source reduction measures such as backyard composting and leaving grass trimmings on the yard.”

Here in the state of California, the California organic waste regulations (SB 1383) went into effect on January 1st, 2022. This regulation requires both residents and businesses to recycle their organic sources of waste, including food waste, yard waste, paper, and cardboard.

With the cooler autumn season right around the corner, now is a great time to start thinking about how you are going to deal with your fall leaves. In this short article, we explain why Junk King of Riverside offers the absolutely best service when it comes to dealing with leaves and every other type of yard waste.

Avoid the Hassle of Hauling Bags of Leaves across your Yard

Here at Junk King of Riverside, we will not rake and bag your leaves for you, but we will help you move those heavy, bulky bags of leaves to trucks. With the regular trash service and many other private junk haulers, you will be expected to do all of that heavy lifting and hauling on your own. In fact, if you choose to schedule a bulky junk item pickup with the municipal garbage company, you will also most likely have to wake up at the crack of dawn to ensure that your yard waste is dutifully placed at the end of your driveway before 5 A.m. 

With Junk King, on the other hand, you do not even have to be home when you schedule your yard waste removal with us. If, for example, your local landscaping company left dozens of bags of leaves, brush, and other yard waste piled up throughout your property, just take a few pictures of the items you want removed and send them to us. You can pay online, and set up the most convenient time for us to come and haul away your yard debris. Even if no one is at home during the day, we can come by, pick up, and haul away your leaves and other sources of yard waste so that you come home to a clean and orderly yard.

Professional Rubbish Removal Services

The Benefits of Professional Rubbish Removal Services in Riverside

Here in Riverside, California, we have come a long way in terms of recycling, waste reduction, and landfill diversion. Back in 1989, our City still did not have any sort of municipal recycling operations. Since then, however, we have been one of the “greenest” cities in southern California, and have steadily improved upon our overall waste recycling rate. 

According to a report by Cal Recycle, we were one of the few cities to achieve a 50 percent recycling rate several years before it was mandated by State law several decades ago. As a community, public and private actors together with individual residents continue to find ways and come up with innovative strategies to lower our waste footprint and increase our landfill diversion rate. One of the most effective ways for homeowners, business owners, and other Riverside residents to deal with their waste streams in an environmentally friendly way is by hiring a reputable junk removal company. 

In this short article, we will outline three reasons why Junk King of Riverside is the absolute best option for getting for the most affordable, efficient, and green rubbish removal services in the entire Riverside area.

Reason #1 to Hire Junk King: The Fastest and Most Efficient Junk Removal Services in Riverside  


We know that for many of our clients, getting rid of junk items is often a time-sensitive mission. For example, if a small restaurant has recently purchased a completely new set of energy-efficient kitchen appliances and gadgets, you absolutely need to get rid of your old items as quickly as possible. Storing your old kitchen equipment in your parking lot while waiting for the next bulky item pickup date to become available through the municipal waste management company is a surefire way to scare away your potential customers. Similarly, homeowners who are attempting to sell their homes will probably want to get rid of old furniture and other unsightly rubbish laying around the home before your upcoming open house date. 

When you need the quickest and most effective solution for getting rid of any type of junk item in the shortest possible time frame, Junk King of Riverside is going to be your best option, hands down. Unlike other private junk haulers who may have lengthy wait periods, we are often able to pick up the junk items you need to get rid of on the same day that you contact us. 

Furthermore, when you hire us you can also be assured that we will help you get rid of your bulky junk items in the most efficient and resourceful way possible. Our professional junk removal technicians will do all the heavy lifting required for the bulky junk items you may have on your property, in your business, or throughout your home. For elderly clients or for those who don’t have the time, energy, or means to haul heavy junk items out to the curb, this service can be a lifesaver. Simply tell our professional junk-hauling teams what needs to be taken away and where it is located on your property, and we´ll do the rest. 

Our teams can even help you with small-scale disassembly of certain bulky items such as playground sets, heavy hot tubs, and other similar items.

Reason #2 to Hire Junk King: Our Unparalleled Commitment to the Environment


As a private junk removal company, we believe that we have a responsibility in helping to keep Riverside clean and as trash-free as possible. One of the reasons that Riverside is one of the fastest-growing areas in southern California is because of our waste management policy, and the lack of unsightly illegal dumps that tend to plague other areas of southern California. When you hire Junk King of Riverside for any type of junk removal need, you will be doing your part to help reduce the overall amount of junk that ends up in our already overburdened landfill system. 

Unlike other junk haulers out there, we go the extra mile to sort through EVERY piece of junk that we haul away. This allows us to determine which items are salvageable for donation, which items can be recycled, and which items can be otherwise repurposed. After several years of being the leading junk removal company in Riverside and the surrounding area, we have developed close relationships with dozens of recycling centers, thrift stores, non-profit organizations, and other interested parties to make sure that all your used junk is given every opportunity to be donated or recycled, instead of simply sent to the nearest landfill. In fact, we are able to recycle, donate, or repurpose around 60 percent of the junk that we pick up, and we are always looking for strategies to improve that number. We are able to help our residential and commercial clients get rid of regular trash, construction debris, household junk, yard waste, small and medium-sized appliances, e-waste, furniture, and virtually anything that is not classified as toxic waste in an environmentally friendly manner. 

Furthermore, our company is committed to respecting and abiding by all relevant state laws and local legislation regarding the proper disposal of organic waste, electronic waste, and other recyclable items. 


Reason #3: Our Commitment to Transparent Pricing


Lastly, when you hire Junk King of Riverside, you will also have the benefit of knowing exactly how much our junk removal service costs. Nobody enjoys hidden charges and “fine print” fees. Because of this, we are dedicated to full transparency and are one of the few junk removal companies that offer free, on-site estimates.  You can also call us for a free quotation or send us a text with photos of the items you need to be removed. We´ll send you a free quote so that you can determine if our services are within your budget. Unlike other junk removal companies out there, you only pay for the actual amount of “stuff” that you need to be hauled away. 

Besides offering the most competitive junk removal prices on the market, we are also proud to say that our customer service is second to none. We have a 5-star rating on Yelp and we can also guarantee to beat any written estimate. Once you do decide to work with us, one of our customer service representatives will help you schedule a time and date for our junk removal services. We work around your busy schedules, and all of our customers can pick a two-hour window on the day they need their junk to be picked up. Our Junk King team will call you 15-30 minutes before your scheduled pick-up to make sure that you´re at home. 

Getting rid of your junk in Riverside doesn’t need to be a headache. If you are strapped for time, you also shouldn’t have to worry about the logistics of moving a heavy refrigerator or bulky mattress out to the curb at 5:00 AM in the morning. With Junk King, we make junk removal easy, stress-free, and most importantly, affordable for everyone in the Riverside community. 

Whether you are doing a downsizing into a smaller apartment and need to get rid of extra stuff that won´t fit in your new space, or are a business owner looking to completely renovate your space, Junk King is proud to be able to offer the most reliable, efficient, affordable, and environmentally friendly junk removal service in the Riverside area.

E-waste Recycling in Riverside: Everything You Need to Know

By now, most people understand that there are certain types of trash that need to be separated from the rest of the stuff that goes into the waste bin. The food scraps and other types of organic waste, for example, are generally best separated for composting. When sent to the landfill with other types of inorganic waste, leftover meals, food scraps, and yard waste drastically increase the amount of methane gas emitted from landfills. According to some studies, methane gas is estimated to be 84 times more potent of a greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide.

Similarly, separating metal, glass, certain types of plastic, and other recyclable materials can also go a long way in reducing the amount of stress on our city´s already overburdened landfill system? But what about other household items that often get thrown away with the “regular trash.” Old appliances, broken electronics, that old VHS player that is gathering dust in your basement: all of these are commonly discarded items that are known as electronic waste, or e-waste.

In this short article, we will take an in-depth look at the serious health and environmental problems posed by electronic waste. We will then turn our attention to the local laws and ordinances that regulate how e-waste is disposed of in the Riverside region. Lastly, we outline why Junk King Riverside is the absolute best option for getting rid of your electronic waste in a safe, legal, and environmentally friendly fashion.

The Negative Side Effects of Improperly Disposing of Electronic Waste

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), e-waste is defined as “used electronics that are nearing the end of their useful life, and are discarded, donated or given to a recycler.” What is unique about e-waste compared to many other types of trash, is that the vast majority of the components, materials, and elements inside the used electronics and appliances we use can either be reused, refurbished or recycled to minimize the actual waste that might end up in a landfill.

Some common examples of e-waste items include:

  • Televisions
  • Computers
  • Phones
  • Appliances
  • Alarm clocks
  • VHS
  • CD players
  • Refrigerators and freezers
  • All different types of telecommunications equipment
  • LED light bulbs
  • Solar panels
  • And virtually any other household item that has electronic components.

The types of electronic waste are unfortunately becoming more and common in landfills around the country due to high consumer demand and relatively short lifespans of these objects. When improperly disposed of in landfills and other illegal dumps, e-waste items can be potentially dangerous to both human health and the local environment.

Most electronic waste items have large amounts of toxic components that are dangerous to human health, such as mercury, lead, cadmium, polybrominated flame retardants, barium and lithium. In a landfill, these toxic elements can potentially leach into the soil and even local watersheds.

When these heavy metals and other dangerous toxic chemicals reach sources of groundwater, they eventually make their way into ponds, streams, rivers, lakes, and other bodies of water. Eventually, the heavy metals lead to acidification and toxification of important water sources. Not only does this effectively poison the water for animals, plants, and other aquatic species, but it can also create serious health risks to human communities.

Today, electronic waste represents just two percent of the total amount of trash in American landfills. However, e-waste items account for an astounding 70 percent of overall toxic waste. Finding ways to keep e-waste out of our landfills is thus one of the most pressing environmental concerns for waste management systems around the nation.

Laws and Ordinances Regulating E-waste Disposal in Riverside

Perhaps ironically, many of the heavy metals in e-waste items that poison the soil, water, and air when they are carelessly thrown into the dump are actually worth millions of dollars! Cell phones and other electronic items have large amounts of precious metals like gold, silver, palladium, and others. Just the cell phones that are thrown away by Americans every year contain an estimated $60 million in gold and silver.

Due to the high value of e-waste items, and the danger that they pose when improperly released into the environment, the city of Riverside has recently implemented several ordinances aimed at curbing the problem of e-waste pollution.

According to the City of Riverside Public Works Department, “The City of Riverside accepts household electronic waste for free at its regularly scheduled CURE Bulky Item/E-Waste drop-off event and at the Incredible Bulk Events. Riverside Household Hazardous Waste Facilities also accept residential TVs, monitors, CRTs, and other consumer electronic devices for recycling.”

Furthermore, regulations developed by the California Environmental Protection Agency and Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) effectively prohibit the disposal of E-Waste into trash and municipal landfills throughout the state of California. Homeowners, residents, and business owners in Riverside, California could be charged with hefty fines for improper disposal of electronic waste items.


Why you Should Choose Junk King for all your E-Waste Removal Needs

If you don’t have the time or the means to haul your e-waste items down to the bulky item and e-waste drop off centers, this doesn’t mean that you simply have to illegally dispose of your e-waste items by hiding them in the regular trash bin.

Junk King Riverside has over a decade of experience in helping their commercial and residential clients get rid of every type of junk item imaginable, including all different types of electronic waste. After several years of being the top-rated junk removal company in Riverside, we know that our clients have come to appreciate the extra effort we put in to ensure that the majority of the junk items we pick up are kept out of our region´s landfills.

We have developed several close relationships with dozens of recycling centers, thrift stores, non-profit organizations, and other interested parties to make sure that all your used junk is given every opportunity to be donated or recycled, instead of landfilled. In fact, we are able to recycle, donate, or repurpose around 60 percent of the junk that we pick up, and that number is almost always higher when it comes to e-waste items.

Besides offering the best e-waste recycling service in Riverside, we are able to help you get rid of regular trash, construction debris, household junk, yard waste, small and medium sized appliances, furniture and virtually anything that is not classified as toxic waste in an environmentally friendly manner.

We also believe that our top notch customer service is one of the reasons that we are the preferred junk removal company in Riverside and the surrounding region. To hire Junk King Riverside, you can simply call us for a free quotation or send us a text with photos of the items you need removed. We´ll send you a free quote, and once we have agreed upon a price and a two-hour window for pickup, our professional furniture removal staff will send you a text 15-30 minutes before arrival to let you know we´re on our way. We also offer free, on-site estimates, and will often be able to haul away the junk on the same day you contact us. As we mentioned above, our junk removal teams will do all the heavy hauling, so you simply have to let us know which pieces of junk you want to get rid of and we´ll do the rest!

Besides offering the most competitive junk removal prices on the market, we can also guarantee to beat any written estimate.
