When You Need Additional Garbage Or Trash Removal Services

garbage and trash removal services in downtown san diego

Most people in the downtown San Diego area would agree that the municipal waste management services are pretty good.

And, if we’re like most folks in California, we throw away about six pounds of trash every day. That adds up to almost 2, 200 pounds every year, roughly the weight of a subcompact car. This means a couple with no kids living somewhere in the East Village area, for example, is tossing out over two tons of garbage a year, while a family of four produces almost 9,000 pounds of waste.

Fortunately, our trusty waste management folks succeed in getting most of that off our hands for us every week and we start the cycle over again. 

But not always…

When There’s More Trash and Garbage Than Waste Bins

Sometimes we can find ourselves with way too much garbage.

Maybe it’s just excessively large amounts of household trash bags that you can’t fit into your residential trash bins. Or, perhaps, it’s all the debris and garbage that resulted from your full-scale spring cleaning project and you ended up with far more stuff to throw out than you anticipated. It could be the occasional bulk trash items that need to be gotten rid of some other way.

Oftentimes for downtown city dwellers the problem is two-fold:

  • The overall amount of garbage or the overall size of the trash items means there’s not enough room in your waste management company’s trash and recycling bins.
  • And you don’t have a way to haul it anywhere yourself because you don’t have a large enough vehicle.

Sure, you might be able to have the residential waste removal company arrange for special bulk item pickups. But that’s always convenient – nor enough. 

Here’s what one of the major waste removal companies in our area says regarding “Bulky Item Collection” for residents,

“For items that are too large to fit into the trash can, residents may request the pick up of household bulky goods. We will retrieve up to five large items such as furniture or appliances three times annually… Advance notice is required.”

Oh, and not everything you may need to get rid of is accepted, by the way.

Which begs the question: what else can you do for garbage or trash removal?


There’s More than One Way to Remove That Junk

If you’re feeling particularly ambitious you might try to simply get rid of that bulk trash or excess garbage yourself. 

However, if you do decide to try removing and disposing of it all yourself, keep in mind that it does involve quite a bit more than getting your hands on a truck! In addition to having a truck or maybe even a large cargo van, taking the DIY bulk trash removal route also means having to load all that bulk trash yourself.

Depending on the number, size, and weight of your bulk trash or garbage items, this can be quite a bit of hard work and possibly dangerous work at that. 

Unless you have help it can be quite easy to seriously pull or sprain a muscle, and maybe even throw out your back. And, unlike the injury you got playing that pick-up game of basketball, there is nothing glamorous about getting hurt taking out the trash!

But even if you manage to load it and secure it on the truck, you still need to know where to take it all. 

While you may be thinking that you’ll just transport it to a local landfill, that’s probably not quite feasible. San Diego County has notoriously few active landfills – three to be exact. And that’s for a county of almost four million people with more than three million of them in the city of San Diego. 

Those four million folks represent over one million households. Fortunately, they’re not all going to the dump every weekend! 

More than likely, you would be hauling your garbage or trash load to a nearby waste transfer station, and you will then have to pay fees for dumping your items. But keep in mind that not everything can be dumped there.

There are certain items that require additional fees, while other materials have to go to certain locations. And worst of all, coming out of a large metropolitan area like downtown San Diego means that just getting to a waste facility can be a huge chore itself.

Does this sound like something you really want to do?

We get it. That’s why we’ve got a much better solution.

When Mattress Disposal Is A Priority Call Junk King San Diego Downtown

mattress disposal in downtown san diego

There are few things in life that are more personal, more valuable, and more difficult to get rid of than a mattress.

Although a minority of us do choose to sleep on pads, futons, or even couches, the vast majority of San Diegans sleep on mattresses. Over a million of them, in fact. And many of these mattresses can last up to 20 years, although most only make it past a decade or so. 

Then it’s time for a replacement. 

Buying a new mattress can be an adventure or a major headache. For some people just about any type of mattress works fine as long as it’s not too hard or too soft. For others, however, the variables involved in just the right mattress can make for a long and frustrating shopping experience. 

The nature of our biology and the differences in construction, design, size, and other elements of a mattress can make shopping for a mattress a long and drawn-out affair. This is why so many retailers and manufacturers offer 60, 90, and sometimes even 120 day “try out” periods for mattress purchases.

However, once we settle on a new mattress, it’s very likely we still have our old one to get rid of.

And at Junk King San Diego Downtown, we understand that can be more of a headache for many people than buying a new one.

Being Responsible – and Smart – with Mattress Disposal

We’ve probably all seen an old, beat up mattress lying in a field or empty lot. Maybe it was on the side of the road somewhere near Mission Trails Regional Park. Or, possibly, even tossed into a parking lot. And we all know that this is not the best form of mattress disposal nor is it even legal.

But the truth is, that without a suitable vehicle like a truck, trying to get an old mattress out of the house and to a proper disposal facility is difficult, if not impossible.

On the other hand, trying to sell or even donate a used mattress is also difficult and problematic. 

Many people wouldn’t even consider accepting a used mattress from a stranger. And very few thrift stores or second-hand shops will accept them. With the recent outbreaks of bedbugs, too, the stigma – deserved or not – is enough to keep most everyone from thinking about taking an old mattress off someone’s hands.

While you still may find a place to donate your old mattress, or a person willing to buy it or take it for free, odds are you’ll need to find another way to dispose of it.

The good news is that your old mattress doesn’t have to end up in a dumpster or be taken off to the nearest landfill. In fact, that’s the last thing you want to do with your old mattress.

There is a better option.


When Mattress Disposal is a Green Activity

Need to dispose of that old mattress? You might be surprised to learn that much of it can be recycled. 

The website for AmeriSleep provided this insight into what parts of your old mattress can be recycled:

Most materials in a mattress can be repurposed once a bed is deconstructed (about 85-90%), and enterprising entrepreneurs are constantly developing new ways to use old bedding.

  • • Springs & Coils: Metal can be melted and made into new items.
  • Foams: Mattress foams can be shredded and used in carpet padding, moving pads, and as a fuel source.
  • Fibers: Cotton and other fibers can be used in filters, insulation, or burned for fuel.
  • Fabrics & Upholstery: Can be reclaimed for use in other items.
  • Wood: Can be chipped for mulch or burned for fuel.

There are currently no federal laws that require the recycling of mattresses. And, while almost no states require mattress recycling either, the Mattress Recycling Council succeeded in promoting the passage of laws in California, Connecticut, and Rhode Island that allows retailers to collect a disposal fee on all new mattress and box spring sales.

In addition, up-to-date information from Bye Bye Mattress, a program of the Mattress Recycling Council, is available to assist consumers in recycling their old mattresses. 

Along with recycling efforts, waste-to-energy facilities such as the Covanta plant in nearby Long Beach can transform solid waste like old mattresses and other materials into electricity through their advanced furnace technology and steam-powered generating system.

Junk King has always been a green company having established their corporate mission back at their founding in 2005 of recycling as much material that they remove as possible. Up to 60 percent of it, in fact, and used mattresses are included in these recycling efforts. 

And Junk King San Diego Downtown wholeheartedly supports this initiative, as well, and works hard to ensure that they reuse and recycle as much of everything they pick up as possible.

Because mattress disposal can be something of a challenge, we’ve put together this handy checklist to help guide you through the process:

mattress removal checklist


When Mattress Disposal is an Affordable Task

At Junk King San Diego Downtown, we understand that you can call any of a hundred people with a truck who might be willing to haul away your old mattress for you. And we understand that this is a service that can probably be had cheap.

But the problem with hiring “Chuck in a Truck” is that you can’t know for certain where your used mattress is going to actually end up. You have no guarantee that the person you hired will take it to a waste transfer station or even a nearby landfill to be properly dumped off. One thing you can probably be quite certain of, however, is that your mattress won’t be taken to a recycling facility of any kind!

In other words, saving a little bit of money isn’t always worth it.

The good news is that Junk King San Diego Downtown works hard every day to uphold our reputation for offering only fair and transparent pricing. We never have hidden fees or add-on charges on top of our estimates or quotes.

We always offer free estimates as a part of our service and four ways to get one.

When our mattress disposal team shows up on time at your location, we will provide you with a free written estimate. 

And, with Junk King San Diego Downtown, we are so confident our prices are better than any comparable operator that we guarantee to beat any written estimate. What do we mean by a “comparable operator?” A firm that is a licensed, insured, junk removal company operating a recycling-based business to help keep our landfills free of unnecessary waste materials.

How To Arrange For Junk King Service

Call to schedule a junk removal appointment. You can also request a quote via email, but you’ll need to provide your physical address. Once your junk removal appointment is scheduled, it’s time to prepare for our arrival. Start by taking an inventory of what needs removing. There are two ways to go about doing that: Create a list or take pictures.


Discuss how to prepare your junk removal appointment with pictures and where to get a copy. It should be written in bullet points so it can be easily read and understood. If you need to discuss about new item, using bolding or italics would be better than rewriting entire paragraph. By taking an inventory of what needs removing before our crew arrives, we’ll be able to load up as much as possible in one trip—and save you money on your haul.


Our team will show up at your home or business ready to work (in fact, they’re probably already there waiting for us). When we arrive at your property, our crew will provide an upfront estimate of what it will cost (with no hidden fees). After getting an okay from you, they’ll get right down to business and start loading up all that unwanted junk.


During our junk removal appointment, you’ll need to point out what needs removing. A little prep work on your part will help ensure a smooth and speedy haul (and save you money). As we load up your unwanted items, we’ll also ask about any sentimental items that may be tossed in with all your other junk. We’re happy to set these aside so they don’t get thrown away by mistake.


Our team will take all those unwanted items to one of our local recycling centers (if you prefer), giving them a second life instead of adding them to a landfill. We want everyone in San Diego County—including Chula Vista CA—to feel good about doing their part to keep our area green and clean.


What You Should Know About Preparing For Your On-Demand Pickup

If you’re calling for an on-demand junk removal service, there are a few things you should know about getting ready. Ideally, you’ll have everything you want to dispose of prepped and ready to go before your junk removal truck arrives.


You can give yourself some extra time during pickup by clearing out as much space in your garage or driveway as possible and maybe even moving big items into your yard. That way, once we arrive with our truck and dolly, we can load everything up quickly—and be on our way within just a few minutes. One other thing that will help us do our job quickly is if you provide all necessary tools such as ropes or furniture dollies.


It’s also important to be ready to give us access to your home or business. You should have any pets securely confined in a room, and if you have outdoor furniture or other items you don’t want moved, it’s probably best not to place them on our work route.


For example, if we need to use a sidewalk or driveway when loading up your junk, then make sure all obstructions are removed first. And just so you know—we can handle just about anything you throw at us! We pride ourselves on being able to remove even some of our most challenging items. Let us know what we can expect before we arrive and we’ll take care of everything else for you.


Once we arrive, it’s important to have your payment ready. We accept cash and all major credit cards, and our rates are extremely competitive. Keep in mind that you’ll need to provide us with a working phone number in order to get an accurate estimate on our services. So if you haven’t yet done so, now is a good time to let us know.


There’s no cost or obligation to do so, and if you decide against using our services, we will simply stop contact—no harm, no foul! And if you decide not to hire us on-site but still want an estimate—or just want more information—we can also help with that.
