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.
