Sacramento Yard Waste Removal

There is a local law on the books in Sacramento that concerned citizens are working hard to overturn. This is the law that bans backyard chicken coops. The recent egg salmonella recall has made everyone jittery about where their eggs are coming from. There can be no better source then from your own chickens. Unfortunately, it is illegal to have chickens in your backyard in Sacramento. But that could change with the next legislature session. If that law does change, how quick can you put up a coop? It might mean clearing out some room in your backyard. With a project like that, you’re surely going to need the help of a local Sacramento yard waste removal crew you help you clear out the yard and make room for the chicks.

Suppose you don’t want to wait for the law to change but are still concerned about where your family’s food is coming from? Starting your own vegetable garden is a great way to insure you can eat organic and fresh veggies all the time, especially in California. Just like clearing space for that potential chicken coop, you’ll probably have to clear a lot more for a decent sized garden in your yard.  If you’ve got a yard of grass this will be easy, although a bit sweat inducing. You just need to map out your plot of garden and start digging. All the sod you’ll be removing will need to be hauled away. That’s where a yard waste removal company can step up to the plate and take it all away in one trip.

Maybe your backyard is more cement patio than lawn. Once again, it might be labor intensive but you can break up that patio and make room for fresh, enriched soil. With a yard waste removal team standing by, they can get rid of all that broken up cement and let you get to the fun of planting. Not only will the yard waste removal crew have the right size truck to haul away all that cement but they’ll know where to dump it. This could even end up as recycled material which means your old patio can be somebody else’s new foundation.

Of all waste removal projects, yard waste might just be the most problematic. The reason is simple: all that dirt. If you want to get rid of an old sofa, you can borrow a friend’s pick-up and take it away. But will that same friend let you fill up the bed of their pick-up with dirt, leaves and grass? Probably not. Don’t worry, a Sacramento yard waste removal company knows all about dirt and isn’t afraid to get their own trucks messed up in the name of good work.

Hiring a professional work crew means you can relax by having workers come into your backyard. There is no reason to wonder where this crew is from when you hire a company that is licensed and bonded. They will have a reputation to stand on and will handle your yard waste removal with efficiency.

Sacramento Hauling: Inside and Outside Junk

The PBS series “Antique Roadshow”  has been a very popular hit among Sacramento antique collectors and curious minds of all kind. We’d all like to think we have a treasure hidden within our junk. Sometimes there actually is a genuine prize lurking in the closet or basement. Recent participants on “Antique Roadshow” have discovered paintings valued at over $500,000 and a jade collection worth over $1,000,000. Of course, those are the rarities. We all know that most of the junk we have sitting around our house is really, well, junk. As much as we’d like to discover a pot of gold, what we really should be doing is calling in a team of professional junk haulers to get rid of it all.

Most of our garbage falls into two categories: inside junk or outside junk. The inside junk is every piece of furniture, every appliance, every box that we’re not using and will never use. If you’re lucky to have a house with kids heading off to college, then you know what they’ve left behind are some stained carpets, dirty sofas and nasty futons. They should all be tossed out. Inside junk can also be whatever you have piled up on shelves, inside closets or crammed into attics that you’ve always meant to get rid of but never got around to.

Outside junk are all the things that have sprung up around your yard, garage or porch. An old stove that broke down became inside junk but the minute you shoved it out onto the back porch it became outside junk. There are also all kinds of yard waste that can be taken away. Things like broken bird baths, dead bushes, leftover building materials, car parts and anything else you’ve got piled up around the outside of your home.

Of course, junk is junk to a moving crew. All you have to do is point to the items you want gone and gone they shall be. You could even slap on Post-it notes to everything that is scheduled for removal.

What’s great about hiring a Sacramento hauling company is that it’s really going to force you to go through your entire house to see what you can get rid of. After all, this might be your only shot at having professional movers coming over to get rid of garbage. Don’t be afraid to put them to work! It’s what they live for.

The other aspect to consider with getting rid of your junk is exactly where will it end up? Sacramento has a long standing reputation as a clean city. It got that way thanks to citizens who care enough not to dump their garbage anywhere. It’s also a leading recycling city. Your junk should be treated no different than your old newspapers and plastic bottles: have it recycled. Any junk hauling company doing business in Sacramento has to be “green.” They might not be able to have all of your items recycled but it’s making the effort that really counts. Even if just half of your junk can avoid the landfill, that’s going to be a major accomplishment. Speaking of accomplishments, think of all the fun you’re going to have with a clean backyard and wide open storage space? The sky is the limit!
