Taking Care Of Yard Debris Removal For Downtown San Diego Residents

We live in a nation of homeowners who are known for taking great pride in their lawns. 

On any given weekend in many neighborhoods, one will likely hear lawnmowers and trimmers going. And it’s no different in San Diego. Neighborhoods like Golden Hill, Little Italy, South Park, Coronado, Grant Hill, and Logan Heights are pretty much the same. 

It’s estimated that there are almost 300,000 single-family homes in the city of San Diego. What that means is there are a few hundred thousand yards scattered around the city. Some of our neighborhoods tend to have more and larger yards than others.

But even those homes that have small yards, or no yards at all, often have shrubbery, small trees, and so forth.

And this adds up to one thing in particular and that is the recurring need for yard maintenance. 

This is why Junk King San Diego Downtown also specializes in yard debris removal and backyard clean ups.

What to Do with All the Yard Debris When It’s Too Much for the Green Recycling Bins

Cutting grass, pulling weeds, and trimming some landscaping shrubs are all part of taking care of the yard, sprucing up your home’s outdoor space, and being a proud homeowner or renter. Granted, these days it’s not uncommon for many residents to have landscaping firms manage all that work for them. 

But whether it’s a DIY yard maintenance home, or one that makes use of a contracted lawn maintenance service, there are times when the yard debris can be more than your residential green waste recycling bins can hold.

For example, when fall comes to San Diego.

Sure, it’s not freezing cold and blustery, but we do have fall foliage and beautiful scenic areas full of deciduous trees that explode in fall colors. Drives through places like Mount Laguna, Cuyamaca Rancho State Park, Palomar Mountain State Park, Julian, and Balboa Park are popular with San Diegans and visitors alike. 

But when the leaves are in the trees in your yards, and the leaves begin to fall? Not so much.

And those leaves can become quite large piles once you’re done raking them all in. Add to that the ongoing piles of lawn clippings, the obligatory fall pruning debris, the occasional broken branches and other plants and shrubs that had to be pulled up and replaced… well, you can have an extensive row of piles – and nowhere to put them.

Besides all that, yard debris can be a sort of “catch all” term for everything and anything outside your home that needs to be disposed of. Including things stored in your garage or outdoor shed.

From Grass Clippings and Leaves to Broken Barbeques and Worn-Out Weed Whackers

The good news is that Junk King San Diego Downtown is fully equipped and prepared to help you with all your yard debris removal needs, as well as any other junk you may have. 

We understand that sometimes your yard debris and waste can be composed of far more than dead grass, weeds, branches, and other organic materials. There can be old lawn chairs, broken kiddie pools, torn patio umbrellas, and even larger items like broken-down tool sheds or even an old hot tub.

Sometimes, “yard debris” is debris from demolishing an old deck or all the old fencing around the back yard. This kind of waste and debris can entail huge stacks of old, broken lumber and metal hardware, all of which must be disposed of properly and safely. 

Fortunately, much of what we toss out under the broad label of “yard debris” is recyclable or reusable. Wooden fence and decking materials can be processed and made into new products. Some of the organic waste that gets removed can be used as processed mulch products for resale. And just about any type of metal, glass, or plastic products can be recycled. 

Because of this, it’s to your advantage to call on Junk King San Diego Downtown for all your yard debris and other junk removal needs. Unlike most other junk removal firms, we make it our priority to recycle up to 60 or more of everything we pick up each day from every job. 

Being green is central to how we do business and how our processes operate.

Junk King San Diego Downtown owner Yoko Stone recognized that our brand of green junk removal was needed in downtown San Diego. When she first noted the lack of a reliable, environmentally friendly, efficient junk removal service here, she realized that not everyone had the means to dispose of their junk or unwanted items in a safe way.

So, with Junk King, she set out to change that.

When You Just Need Someone To Haul Away Junk For You

Accumulating junk seems to be akin to a law of nature.

Take this one, for example: Cause and effect refers to a relationship between two phenomena in which one phenomenon is the reason behind the other. Okay, so that’s pretty deep. But let’s try it this way.

“Acquiring more stuff than you need leads to excess stuff.”

And one could expand on that by postulating that too much stuff eventually leads to junk. And when you have too much junk, you just need someone to haul it away for you.

Why is that?

Because junk removal and hauling are not the best “do it yourself” activities, especially if you live in downtown San Diego!

Why You Really Don’t Want to Haul Away Junk Yourself

So, you own a truck.

That can be a good thing to have and, as it turns out, you’re not alone. It’s estimated that the top vehicles sold in California are pickups followed closely by SUVs of various types. 

And this holds true for San Diego County and even downtown San Diego, as well.

This matters because when you do decide to haul away junk yourself, you need a suitable vehicle to make that happen. It goes without saying that you’re not going to be loading much junk into a Prius, Tesla Model 3, or an Audi.

But even if you do own a pickup truck, do you really want to haul away your junk by yourself?

Keep in mind that this will mean moving and hauling all your junk items and materials out of the house or garage and then out to your vehicle. That right there can be a major chore if your junk consists of boxes of old magazines or books, broken-down furniture, or – worse – old mattresses or junk appliances

Then you must load it all into your truck, secure your load with items like tarps and tie-downs, and then haul it off to the nearest landfill or waste transfer station. And most likely the latter as there are really only three major landfills you can make use of – the Sycamore, Miramar, and Otay landfills.

So, You Want to Go to a Landfill – DIY Junk Hauling in San Diego

Are you ready for a half-hour or more drive to get to a landfill?

That’s what you’re likely to encounter if you live in the downtown San Diego area in someplace like Point Loma, Pacific Beach, East Village, or Mission Hills. Of course, you could take it all to a local waste transfer station instead. And, while this may be closer and faster, you still have to unload… All. Your. Own. Junk!

Not to mention paying for the gas, doing all the driving, doing all the heavy lifting, and paying the dumping fees. And that’s assuming you don’t have any junk materials that are banned from landfills in California. 

Of course, if you are one of the hundreds of thousands of downtown San Diego residents who does not own a truck, then you’re likely not going to be trying this anyway.

Also, if your junk is especially large, bulky, and heavy, then it doesn’t much matter either way – you will most likely not want to try it yourself. Truck or no truck!

So, that brings us back to our original issue: you need someone to haul it away for you.

This is why Junk King San Diego Downtown specializes in junk hauling and junk removal.

Finding an Affordable, Green, and Reliable Service to Haul Away Junk

Hauling and removing junk always involves some cost.

But it doesn’t have to cost a lot. And with a company like Junk King San Diego Downtown, you can be confident that you will be treated with fair and transparent pricing. And we will provide you with a free estimate before you even book an appointment.

At Junk King, we only charge you for the amount of space your junk takes up in our truck. No inequitable flat fees and not by weight. And no hidden charges or extra labor fees.

Green junk hauling means having processes that ensure as much of the junk as possible that you get rid of is recycled. And that is exactly what we do. In fact, it’s what we have always done, and it is a central part of our company’s mission and operations.

Junk King San Diego Downtown works hard to keep as much of everything we pick up from every job, every day, out of any of our local landfills. It’s part of our commitment to you and to our neighborhood – and our planet. 

And did we mention reliable?

We understand that no one has all day to stay at home, waiting for a junk hauling truck that may or may not show up during the 8-hour window they committed to. And we also understand that no one wants to trust their junk to a firm that may leave a mess when they leave and may not properly dispose of it all. 

Along with being friendly, courteous, and professional, our junk hauling teams are completely committed to delivering top-notch customer service with each and every appointment.

Being on time and being reliable is also part of our “corporate DNA” because we understand that our customers are also our friends and neighbors. 

And that’s one of the benefits of working with a firm that is locally owned and operated.
