When You Need Scrap Metal Removal In Downtown San Diego

scrap metal removalRegardless of whether you’re a homeowner, a renter, or a small business owner somewhere in or near downtown San Diego, you have to get rid of stuff. 

For most of us, most of the time, that’s a fairly simple task. We toss it into the trash, the recycling bin, or the dumpster behind the store or shop. Easy peasy! Other times, we’ve got quite a bit of stuff to get rid of, however.

If they’re reusable items, and we just don’t need them or want them, we can often donate them or possibly even sell them. And sites like Craigslist and Facebook Marketplace are great for that. But, if the things we need to get rid of are not reusable, then disposal becomes a bit of a problem.

And when it comes to items like scrap metal or junk metal, most of us are left wondering how to get rid of it properly. That’s when a scrap metal removal solution from Junk King San Diego Downtown can come in handy.

Not Into Heavy Metal? Help for Scrap Metal Removal in Downtown San Diego

Small items and pieces of junk metal can usually go into a residential or commercial recycling bin. And, in fact, we strongly encourage that approach whenever possible. 

Why? Because metals are the most completely recyclable material we typically dispose of.

Steel, for example, is 100 percent recyclable, and can be recycled into the same material of the same quality again and again. In fact, almost all metals aside from uranium, plutonium, and mercury, are infinitely recyclable. (And, hopefully, you’re not trying to offload any scrap uranium!)

The biggest benefit is that the more scrap metal we recycle, the fewer new, or virgin, metals that have to be produced. And less junk material ends up in landfills. 

In addition, there are energy – and climate – benefits from recycling metals, as well.

One source has noted that, 

“Aside from the diversion of material from landfills, other important benefits of metal recycling versus the creation of virgin metal include a reduction in energy consumption as well as in the use of other materials. For example, recycled aluminum requires 95 percent less energy, while copper needs 90 percent less, and steel 56 percent less. Additionally, the recycling of one ton of steel avoids the use of 2,500 pounds of iron ore, 1,400 pounds of coal, and 120 pounds of limestone.”

But, as a nation, we still do not recycle anywhere near the amount of scrap metal that could be recycled. According to the EPA, for example,

“Overall, the Agency estimated the recycling of ferrous metals from durable goods (large and small appliances, furniture, and tires) to be 27.8 percent (4.7 million tons) in 2018. EPA estimated the recycling rate for steel cans to be 70.9 percent (1.1 million tons) in 2018. … This was 7.2 percent of all MSW landfilled.”

In other words, we’re great at reusing steel cans at almost 71 percent being reused. But the bulk of other ferrous metals – iron and steel items – end up somewhere else, usually a landfill.

The problem for most folks is that their scrap metal is either made up of items too heavy for them to deal with, or the volume of scrap is too large for them to haul themselves.

Affordable Scrap Metal Removal with Junk King San Diego Downtown

Junk King San Diego Downtown is your best local choice for your residential junk removal needs. With superior service, professionalism, and value, we are proud to be recognized as the Number One junk removal company in the industry.

And, at the start of COVID-19, Junk King was one of the first in our industry to offer touchless junk removal service.

Because Junk King’s junk removal trucks are up to 30 percent larger than those of our competitors, we can save you money since we’re able to haul more of your junk in fewer trips. And we offer fair and transparent pricing to all our customers, which is something that’s not so common in our industry. This means that with Junk King San Diego Downtown, you will save money since we simply charge by the amount of space your junk takes up in our trucks, not by weight like most other firms do. 

In other words, you’ll pay the same price for either a half truckload of washers and dryers or a half truckload of carpet padding and old drapes!

That means, unlike many of our competitors, we don’t make you pay more for hauling heavy metal items than we would for those old plastic patio chairs and tables – even though they might take up the same amount of space in our truck.

In addition, our pricing is the lowest in our service area, whether that’s National City, Chula Vista, Imperial Beach, Coronado, or downtown San Diego. In fact, at Junk King, we guarantee to beat any written estimate.

And we offer free estimates along with four different ways to get an estimate:

ON-SITE: The best and most accurate way for us to offer you the lowest price is a free, no-obligation on-site estimate.

CALL: You can also call or live chat with our customer service representatives.

ONLINE: Simply click “Pricing” in the navigation above, scroll to Pricing Estimator, and click the green “Launch Pricing Estimator” button.

While an estimate is not an actual quote, once our junk removal team shows up at your location, they will give you a firm, no-obligation price on-site.

Property Cleanouts For San Diego Downtown Property Managers

property management cleanout san diego

Being a property manager means being responsible not only for the safety and well-being of tenants, but for the upkeep, repair, and cleaning of the property. More often than not, when it comes to managing apartment complexes, many property managers live on-site. 

While most of the work of a property manager is fairly straightforward and administrative, there are still many tasks that involve physical labor and effort. 

Unfortunately, carrying out property cleanouts and cleaning up areas of the property are among those tasks. Whether it’s a tenant that has just vacated, or garbage and debris around the grounds and property, someone has to clean it up.

If you’ve been a property manager for any length of time, these are chores you’ve already had to do several times already. 

The fact is it will need to be done again. But you don’t have to take care of it yourself!

Property Cleanouts and Cleaning Up the Property: Part of the Job? Maybe Not!

Regardless of where your property is located in the San Diego area – in Imperial Beach, East Village, or even Coronado – the reality is that people can trash your property.

Unfortunately, not all the trash is simply confined to a vacated unit. While these can sometimes become major cleanout jobs – especially after an eviction – there are times when the cleanout is for other areas on the property outdoors.

It’s a distressing reality that in urban and heavily populated areas, some people will use the dumpsters on private properties such as apartment or condominium complexes. And, more often than not, this ends up being piles of unsightly and potentially hazardous waste, garbage, and debris. 

In addition to the dumpster areas, parking lots, resident garages, and even laundry rooms or other community-use facilities can be the site of someone’s dumped garbage and junk. 

Along with being an eyesore, these intrusions of trash can potentially end up strewn all over your property if not cleaned up quickly. And they pose potential health and safety hazards, as well. With the proliferation of drug-use paraphernalia or empty glass liquor bottles that are often found in this type of trash, cleanups are necessary for the protection of tenants and others.

Unfortunately, as the property manager, this responsibility falls on you. 

Cleaning up may be relatively simple and, if there is room in your dumpsters, disposal can be a simple matter, as well. But if the size of the junk items, or the volume of debris, means they can’t be placed in the dumpsters, you have another problem.  

Hauling and disposing of these materials requires a truck, possibly tarps, and tie-downs, maybe an extra hand or two, and a few trips to the nearest landfill or waste transfer station. And, if you don’t have all these readily available, that can be a challenge. 

The good news is that, even though you are the property manager, you don’t have to do all this yourself. 

In fact, even if you do have a suitable vehicle and plenty of help, doing this type of work yourself really isn’t the most efficient nor cost-effective option. Fortunately, the property cleanout professionals at Junk King San Diego Downtown can offer you a far better option!

Property Management: People on the Move in Downtown San Diego

The city of San Diego has been somewhat notorious for its overall lack of available housing. It seems that the construction of new housing units, both single-family and multi-family, has not kept pace with the growth in population over the last decade or so. 

Despite this situation, the city of San Diego still has roughly 250,000 multi-family units within the city limits as of 2019. While some of these are duplexes, triplexes, and so on, many of them are situated in apartment complexes.

And San Diego has an abundance of them!

Although there has been a nation-wide trend towards people staying in place longer and moving less frequently, when it comes to apartment rentals, statistics show that a multi-family/apartment should stay occupied for roughly 2.5 years. 

However, with almost a quarter of a million units or more in the city, this means that on any given day, hundreds and even thousands of tenants can be relocating.

And, when they do, they often leave behind junk, trash, and debris.

We are fully committed to our company’s eco-friendly mission of ensuring that as much of the junk that we pick up as possible is recycled or donated. In fact, Junk King is the only nationally recognized junk removal company that consistently manages to recycle 60 percent or more of everything we haul away.

And, at Junk King San Diego Downtown, we do this every day through our working relationships with local donation centers, non-profit organizations, and local recycling facilities.

So, why do we go to all that trouble for junk and debris collected from a property cleanout? Because we care about our planet and our neighborhoods. Engaging in genuinely green disposal practices means we can help find new uses for the things we pick up. 

And that’s because there are better destinations for all that trash, junk, and debris left at your property than in our local landfills or some trash incineration plant.

Perhaps the best part for you as a property manager in San Diego, is that you can have an active role in a successfully “green” junk removal and disposal process without having to do any of the heavy lifting or hauling!

Simply call Junk King San Diego Downtown – your local, professional junk removal firm – and we can take care of it for you, while helping take care of the planet.
