The Best Tips for Cleaning Your Attic

Cleaning out your attic can seem like a big job, but it’s important to keep your home in good shape and order. When taking on a big cleaning project, you may need junk removal or hauling services to take away any junk you don’t want. Junk King San Diego is happy to provide you with junk removal, debris removal, and hauling services once your cleaning project is over. Here are some steps you can take to make the junk removal process as easy and quick as possible:

  1. Collect your supplies: Make sure you have all the necessary tools and materials before you start. This could include gloves, a mask, trash bags, boxes for donations or things that need to be stored somewhere else, and cleaning supplies.
  2. Make a plan: Think about what you want to get out of cleaning the attic. Do you want to clean up and put things in order, or do you also need to deal with problems like pests or water damage? Make a list of the things you need to do and put them in order of importance. Junk removal can be a big project, so it’s important to be strategic.
  3. Sort through your things. To start, take everything out of the attic and sort it. Make piles of the things you want to keep, give away, sell, or throw away. This will help you figure out what you have and what to do with each thing.
  4. Fix and replace anything broken: If you find anything that is broken or needs fixing, put it aside so it can be fixed or replaced. This could be things like broken boxes or furniture. Use our hauling services for anything broken that you are replacing.
  5. Clean the attic: Once everything is in order and fixed, it’s time to clean the attic well. This could mean cleaning surfaces by dusting, sweeping, or wiping them down. Be sure to take care of any problems with pests or water damage as well.
  6. Organize and put things away: Once the attic is clean, it’s time to put everything back where it belongs. You could use storage bins, shelves, or other tools to keep your things in order and easy to find. Remember to leave enough room to move around and store things in the future.

Cleaning out your attic can take a lot of time, but it’s worth it because it gives you peace of mind and makes your home more organized. If you follow these steps, the process will go as smoothly and quickly as possible. Contact Junk King when you are ready for us to utilize our junk removal and hauling services.

For Easy TV Recycling, San Diego Downtown Has a Great Option

Electronic Waste TV Recycling


Why would anyone go to the trouble of trying to recycle some old, junky TV when they could simply take it to the dump?


Because you can’t “take it to the dump.”


In fact, you can’t even put them in your trash bin or recycling bin – assuming they’re small enough to fit. And that goes for old computer and gaming monitors, as well. You can’t just throw them away in San Diego County or anywhere else in California. 


Not legally, anyway.


Which is why Junk King San Diego Downtown specializes in TV recycling.

California Regulates all TV Recycling – San Diego Included


There is no federal law prohibiting the disposal of e-waste, including old TVs and monitors. However, there are currently 25 states and the District of Columbia that have passed some type of e-waste legislation.


And California is one of those states with particularly strict e-waste laws.


As one news source noted,


“In California, it is illegal to throw your old TVs, computers, batteries and more into the trash. E-waste is defined as televisions, computers, laptops, printers, cables, VCRs, cell phones, copiers, fax machines, stereos, and electronic games. If this goes into a landfill, its toxic components go into our water table.”


The article goes on to point out that state law requires that electronics be kept out of landfills and that the state of California has its own e-waste program.


The state’s Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) is authorized to develop regulations for the proper management (collection, storage, and recycling) of discarded electronic devices.


In addition, the Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) administers a payment system for collectors and recyclers to cover the average net costs of recovering and recycling Covered Electronic Waste (CEW).

The Problem with Disposing of Old TVs and Monitors in San Diego


Yes, it’s a problem. 


That’s because the really old TVs, the ones before flat screens, are made with something known as a cathode ray tube, or CRT. And this ingenious, but insidious device holds some particularly toxic elements that make it an environmental and health hazard.


Here’s the thing: those older CRT models of TVs and monitors contain various amounts of hazardous materials that are toxic if they end up in landfills. These pre-2000 color and monochrome CRTs were typically manufactured with toxic substances, such as cadmium and phosphorus.


In addition, other toxic wastes found in these old TVs include up to four pounds of lead in the glass, as well as mercury and beryllium. These toxins can seep from landfills and into water sources if disposed of improperly.



That’s because improper disposal can cause breakage of the glass envelope which contains the lead. When this element is exposed into the environment, it poses a very real potential hazard to wildlife and animals.


And along with the other toxic elements in there, another harmful chemical used in making CRT TVs and monitors is barium.


Consequently, the state decided decades ago that proper disposal – and recycling – of old TVs needed to be regulated and protected.




As one recycling site notes,


“CRT TV’s can only be handled in California by facilities that have been inspected and approved by the Department of Toxic Substances or DTSC. Many approved electronic waste collectors deliver their CRT TV’s to proper hazardous recycling facilities for dismantling.


At these facilities, the TVs are dismantled into their raw components and separated into different groups. The hazardous materials are sent off for further treatment, while the non-hazardous materials are shredded and then sorted for further refining.”


So, what does that mean for the average San Diego homeowner or business owner who wants to dump their old TV or computer monitor? Simply this: you gotta do it legally and follow the process.

For Expert TV Recycling, San Diego has Junk King


An old a TV properly disposed of in the waste for recycling


Do you have a few old TVs or computer monitors sitting around your house or workplace? You know, those technologically ancient beasts that seem to weigh a hundred pounds and probably don’t even work anymore?


And maybe you have more than a few.


Small businesses are notorious for holding on to old assets, especially computers and other electronic equipment and devices. But the problem with those big, bulky monitors and TVs you used to use to play training tapes on VHS is that they are obsolete now. And they need to go!


But who wants to take the time and effort to do that? You have to lug those things out of whatever dark hole you’ve had them stashed in for the last few years. Or decades. Then you have to figure out where to take them all and how to go about the process, and so on.


And for homeowners and renters, it might even be a situation where you don’t have the necessary muscle power to be loading and unloading these things. 


That can be especially true for those huge, luxury sets that could weigh up to several hundred pounds. In fact, the heaviest CRT TV weighed 750 pounds and measured 40 inches, according to an article at Techwalla.



The good news is that you don’t have to do any of this TV recycling work yourself.


A simple call to Junk King San Diego can have one of our professional TV recycling at your home or place of work in short order. In fact, with Junk King handling the TV recycling, San Diego residents can relax and simply point to where those devices are stored.


And you can rest assured that we will transport those TVs and monitors – and any other e-waste items you need to get rid of – to local, certified electronics recyclers. In fact, we make it a point to recycle or donate as much of everything we pick up as possible. 


At Junk King San Diego, being green is one of the pillars of our company culture and we endeavor to recycle up to 60 percent or more of what we collect. And that includes old TVs.

For Fast And Easy Mattress Disposal, Chula Vista Calls On Junk King


“Your eyes water when you yawn because you miss your bed and it makes you sad.” — Anonymous 


While that might be a bit humorous, the sad reality is that, for too many of us, we don’t really miss our beds because they have become so uncomfortable. 


A worn out or broken down mattress can be the source of many not-so-restful nights and any number of physical complaints. We’re talking about everything from chronic drowsiness and backaches to obesity, heart issues, and premature aging!


How do you know when you need a new mattress?



Here are seven signs that it’s time to get rid of that old but once trusty mattress:


  • Your Mattress Sags
  • You Have Trouble Sleeping
  • Your Allergies Are Flaring Up
  • You Feel Achy
  • Your Mattress is Noisy
  • You Don’t Wake Up Feeling Rested
  • It’s Been Seven Years or More


Seven years? How long should your old mattress last anyway? Certainly more than that!


Not really, according to experts.


For example, an article from the Sleep Foundation notes that,


“Most mattresses should last between 7 and 10 years. However, there are many variables that can influence mattress lifespan. The original build quality of the mattress, the materials used, and even the weight and sleeping styles of the sleepers can all influence a bed’s longevity.


Of course, mattresses don’t have an explicit “expiration date.” It’s up to the individual to decide when it’s time for a new bed. Often, we grow so accustomed to our beds that we don’t notice that there’s a problem.” 


It’s been shown through multiple studies that the comfort and support of your mattress is vital to the quality of your sleep. And even though a new mattress can be a significant expense, it’s absolutely essential to replace them regularly.


Which also means getting rid of the old one. 


Need to get rid of your mattress ASAP? Book Your Appointment Now!


Your Three Essential Options for Taking Care of Your Mattress Disposal Needs

mattress removal and disposal in san diego

There are several possible options for disposing of your old mattress in Chula Vista.


But there is one option, or method, that you should never attempt. While we’ve all seen it, and it might strike some as a quick and easy disposal solution for a worn-out mattress that no one wants, it’s not an option.



It’s been shown through multiple studies that the comfort and support of your mattress is vital to the quality of your sleep



What are we talking about?


To be very clear that the one way you should never get rid of your unwanted mattress is to simply dump it in an empty lot, field, or on the shoulder of a backroad somewhere outside of Otay Ranch! 


Not only is that illegal in San Diego County and anywhere else in California, it’s also both unsightly and highly inconsiderate to your neighbors in Chula Vista and San Diego County.


Essentially, you have three options when it comes to used mattresses.


Donate Them

You can often donate your mattress if it is clean, in good condition, and has been thoroughly treated for bedbugs, etc. You may also have to have it wrapped. You can also bypass the thrift shops or non-profit groups and simply give it away to a friend, neighbor, or family member.


Recycle Them

You can also take your old mattress to a certified recycling facility. Online organizations such as ByeByeMattress.com can provide you with resources to make that happen. Chula Vista residents can use the following locations:


Residents can drop-off up to five old mattresses for free per day.

Drop-off is free and available for city residents only, no businesses.


Keep in mind, however, that both these methods mean loading, hauling, and unloading your old mattresses!


Call Junk King

junk removal company in san diego

We know you have some choices for mattress disposal service in Chula Vista. However, for fast and easy mattress removal and hauling you want a vendor with a great reputation, transparent pricing, and will properly recycle (or donate) your old mattress.


And Junk King San Diego is that vendor! In other words, we are your number one choice when it comes to mattress disposal.

Hey, Chula Vista! Your Old Mattress is Recyclable, By the Way


If your old mattress is especially bad you might want to just haul into the backyard and burn it! But that’s not a good idea and likely to bring the Chula Vista Fire Department to your door and some stern words, as well.


For those really old, really worn out, and really unusable mattresses there’s still hope. The fact is that they can be recycled.


Now, you might wonder what could possibly be recycled in that beat up old mattress that has given you so many poor night’s sleep over the last few years? To most of us, a mattress isn’t much more than a glorified couch cushion or giant pillow with extra stuff inside. 


Not quite.


According to Greenmatters


“The different component pieces of used mattresses can be used in different ways. The wood frames of box springs can be processed into wood chops and repurposed into particleboard, mulch, or animal bedding. The metal springs within mattresses can be melted down and reused in anything from appliances to buildings to vehicles.


As for the foam, wadding, fabric, and latex components, they can be turned into carpet underlay, stuffing for pillows, or be used in reupholstering furniture. That is an impressive array of recycling for one old mattress.”


It would be accurate to say that, for those of us living in Chula Vista – or anywhere else in California – our old mattresses will either be reused, if possible, or recycled. 


However, according to mattress manufacturer Ortho, while more than 80 percent of used mattress components can be recycled, more than 50,000 mattresses still end up in landfills every year.


California’s original Mattress Recovery Law, SB 254, was passed in 2013 and required manufacturers, renovators, and retailers to provide consumers in the state with the option to have their used mattress either picked up at the time of delivery to provide them with a free drop-off opportunity for mattress recycling.


Both of these options are to be provided at no cost to the consumer. More recently, the state of California expanded its current mattress recycling laws to also include futon mattress recycling in January 2020.

Take Care Of Cardboard Box And Rubbish Removal Today

Cardboard Box Removal


Do you need cardboard box removal right away? Click Here.


Cardboard boxes have been around for over 200 years.


As a way of packing up things, cardboard boxes have been in existence since 1817. And they languished as a shipping device another five decades until 1871 when the corrugated cardboard box came about as a sturdy and reliable means of shipping and handling materials


However, it wasn’t until 1896 when cardboard boxes took a big leap forward.


That was the year that Nabisco ordered cardboard to package their cookies. After that, there was no turning back! Today, the use of cardboard boxes is in a resurgence thanks to companies like Amazon that are shipping thousands of packages out each day. About 1.6 million packages a day, in fact. 


And that adds up to a lot of cardboard boxes.


Cardboard Boxes: Getting Them is Easy – Getting Rid of Them? Not So Much.


Everyone ends uCardboard Removalp with empty cardboard boxes and often the paper and plastic rubbish that comes with them. 


One or two boxes are easy to break up and get rid of in the recycling can. However, if you’re running a business with multiple shipments each day, then those boxes can quickly grow into an enormous pile. In fact, these piles can get to a point that just offloading them can be a costly and time-consuming task.


How much cardboard are we talking about? 


Well, according to the experts at Cardboardbalers.org,


“In the United States, 850 million tonnes of paper and cardboard are thrown away annually. This equates to around 1 billion trees, a terrifyingly high number. To put this into further perspective, the average American uses around seven trees per year in paper and cardboard.”


Another way to look at that number is to figure this means two and half tonnes of paper and cardboard for every man, woman, and child in the United States. And, while this isn’t all made up of cardboard boxes, a sizable portion of it is.



Learn about the importance of recycling.


And getting rid of all that cardboard (boxes and rubbish) is a challenge for residents as well as business owners. 


Which is why Junk King San Diego Downtown specializes in cardboard box and rubbish removal and recycling.


What is Cardboard Box Recycling and Why is it Important?


Card Board Box Removal

Recycling in San Diego is key to sustainability as a city, as a state, a nation, and for the planet. 


The reality is that the more we can recycle or reuse, the less raw resources we have to use now, and the less carbon footprint we have to create in the process of extracting or producing those raw materials.


But the “inconvenient” truth about recycling is that not nearly enough waste is actually recycled.


The good news, however, is that when it comes to cardboard box recycling and paper recycling, we are doing quite well. In fact, properly separated materials for rubbish removal can mean that as much as 65 percent or more of our waste cardboard and paper products can be effectively recycled. 


According to a recent information published on the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) website, 


“Approximately 46 million tons of paper and paperboard were recycled in 2018 for a recycling rate of 68.2 percent, which was the highest compared to other materials in MSW. Nondurable goods made of paper, excluding newspapers, had a recycling rate of 43.1 percent, while newspapers had a recycling rate of 64.8 percent.“


This is promising news since paper and paperboard (cardboard boxes, etc.) make up over 23 percent of the total amount of solid municipal waste (MSW) generated each year. That was more than 67 million tons in 2018. 


full service junk removal


Of course, due to contamination, not all cardboard boxes, paperboard materials, or paper waste can be used for recycling. So, in 2018 for example, just over four million tons of this type of waste was combusted, usually for energy generation. 


The downside of all this good news is that despite the great recycling numbers and potential for paper and paperboard (cardboard) waste, over 17 million tons of it still ended up in landfills. 


Paper waste can be harmful to the environment when left to deteriorate in landfills. Paper contains many toxins that leak into the soil from open and covered landfills and into soil, where it causes ecological damage. For example, when paper rots, it emits methane gas which is 25 times more toxic than CO2.


Which is why cardboard box recycling is important.


5 Ways You Can Help Protect Earth from Junk Waste by Recycling Your Cardboard


For most of us, the most common act of cardboard recycling is when we recycle cardboard boxes. Actually, most of us don’t do the actual “recycling” – we simply make sure the box ends up in a proper recycling bin or container. 


The actual cardboard recycling is done by various green business entities that specialize in recycling and repurposing waste products. However, it is our efforts combined with their efforts that work together to help ensure that we maintain a green earth.


Here’s what happens when you and I “recycle” our paper and cardboard waste.



1) Reduces Deforestation


Our forests are disappearing at alarming rates. Paper product companies cut down millions of trees for their paper manufacturing processes. Forests are ecosystems for hundreds of species that face extinction with the disappearance of the forest habitat. Forests also contain C2O levels and produce oxygen.



2) Reduces Landfill Waste


It is estimated that 35 of every 100 pounds of waste in landfills is paper. In addition, transporting waste costs money and creates C2O. In addition, as the landfill volume increases, more land is required for growing waste containment needs.



3) Reduces Incineration


Incineration is a waste treatment technology that involves burning waste, which converts trash like paper, plastics, and metals, and food scraps into bottom ash (the heavier ash residue), fly ash (lighter, more toxic ash), air pollutants, and wastewater.



junk removal service recycling


4) Reduces Contamination


“Paper waste, like other wastes, faces the additional hazard of toxic inks, dyes and polymers that could be potentially carcinogenic when incinerated, or commingled with groundwater via traditional burial methods such as modern landfills.” – Wikipedia



5) Reduces Paper Production


“Each ton of recycled paper can avoid the use of 17 trees; 1,440 liters of oil; 4,000 kilowatts of energy and 26,500 liters of water. Paper is quite simple to recycle, yet 55 percent of the global paper supply comes from newly cut trees.”The World Counts


Simply put, by using less paper and less cardboard boxes, and recycling as much of these products as possible when they become trash, will go a long way towards helping to protect the earth.


How to Hire a Professional Rubbish Removal Company in Downtown San Diego


Here’s a fitting example of cardboard box removal and recycling done the easy way:


A couple recently moved from a house that had been their home for over 13 years. Despite offloading and “downsizing” as much as they could, the move ultimately required well over two hundred cardboard boxes of assorted sizes and types.



New Call-to-action


Once they had completed their move to a new house (in beautiful downtown San Diego, of course!) the couple tackled the job of unpacking and moving in. 


Needless to say, the enormous number of cardboard boxes and other junk was far more than they would ever be able to get into their residential recycling bin. In fact, once they managed to flatten the boxes and bundle them up (to keep the stacks from falling) they estimated that there was close to eight or nine cubic yards of cardboard that they needed to dispose of!


Fortunately, they had already used a reliable rubbish removal company at their last home during the moving process there, and they called on Junk King once again for this project.


While there are several options for removing and disposing of your waste cardboard and rubbish, the most efficient and most cost-effective solution is to hire a professional rubbish removal company in downtown San Diego. 


And the best company to call is Junk King.


At Junk King San Diego Downtown, we not only specialize in cardboard removal and recycling, but we are also experts at office junk removal and office rubbish clearance. And that includes cardboard rubbish and waste.


How to Get Rid of Your Old Cardboard Boxes for Good


Piles of cardboard boxes and plastic bottles stored for recyclingThe truth is you can simply break down your household cardboard box waste and stuff it all into your home recycling bin. And this might work for smaller quantities of trash. 


But what if you have more than you can get into the bin? Well, that often means multiple trips out to the bin each week that it’s going to be picked up by the garbage truck. Or, worse, you might be tempted to “cheat” and put some in your regular household waste bin, which means no recycling. 


Of course, you could load it all up and haul it yourself. But cardboard boxes can take up quite a bit of space and it won’t be long before your Tesla or Pathfinder is filled to the brim. And, if you own a pickup truck like many San Diegonians do, that might not be so much of a stretch.


But you still gotta know where to take it all. And you probably don’t want to dump it at your local waste transfer station or the Otay Landfill, now do you?


That wouldn’t be very “green” or eco-friendly.


Actually, your best bet for getting rid of your old cardboard boxes for good – for the good of the planet as well as permanently – is to have them recycled. And the best way to make sure that happens without doing all the heavy lifting, loading, driving, and unloading yourself is to make a call to Junk King San Diego Downtown. 


Junk King San Diego Downtown and Your Junk Removal Needs


Junk King started as a professional junk hauling service helping homeowners clear out their garages.


Now, businesses, too, depend on regular pickups from Junk King to make sure their storage areas are always clear of unwanted clutter. As for the cardboard boxes, the Junk King crew will happily break them down and load them onto the truck for swift removal.


Cardboard is one of the most popular commodities to recycle. You might not notice it but a lot of the boxes you have coming into your home or business probably have the recycle symbol on them. In fact, we manage to recycle upwards of 96 percent of corrugated cardboard every year.


That’s an impressive statistic!


And Junk King understands how important it is to recycle, which is why we make every effort to get your cardboard to one of our local, certified recycling centers.


What about the rest of your rubbish?


We realize that this is an old-school term that means “waste material; refuse or litter” – and that almost no one uses it any longer. But rubbish is a good term and is a good description of what many of us need to get rid of.


The good news is that Junk King can clear it away at the same time we pick up your cardboard waste. When we arrive, you’ll have a very friendly team at your disposal and that can make a significant difference when it comes to deciding what you want to get rid of.


By the way, the weight of your junk is not a factor at Junk King.


The Junk King pricing policy is based on volume. In other words, the amount of space your junk fills up in the truck determines how your job is priced. And you’ll know that fee amount before the work begins and, once it is agreed to, it will be locked down.


There are never any surprise charges with Junk King. The quickest way to get rid of your cardboard boxes and rubbish is to give that job to Junk King San Diego Downtown.

Put Junk King To Work For Your Chula Vista Yard Cleanup

This is the time of year when your Chula Vista front yard starts to get a lot of focus. That is because you might be decorating that yard for Halloween. After that, you could make the transition to Christmas decorations. Even though those decorations are going up, that doesn’t mean you can neglect your lawn maintenance. This is why you want to take advantage of this time of year for a thorough yard cleanup. The best approach for that might surprise you: Junk King San Diego.

Not Just Sofa Lifters

Junk King has been providing a valuable junk hauling service for Chula Vista homeowners and businesses for a long time. The majority of those sessions  involve lifting and loading things like sofas, love seats, recliners, mattresses, bedroom sets and baby furniture. The Junk King crews always make short work of that type of removal regardless of how heavy or where that item might be located in the house. But their work isn’t just limited to furniture removal.

Junk King Keeps You Out Of The Landfill

Landfills have come a long way. Years ago, there were no precautions made to landfills with regard to protecting the environment. You would dump your trash there and crews with bulldozers would spend the day trying to smooth out the piles. Eventually, when the landfill grew too big, they might have covered it with dirt and move onto another hole. Today, landfills are designed with stronger protective foundations. This is meant to prevent seepage into the surrounding eco-systems. When the capacity is reached, the landfills are covered with earth and sod. Often, they are turned into nature preserves and parks.

All of this means that the modern landfill is much more eco-friendly. Still, you wouldn’t want to go there with your trash. Even with all of these advances, the goal for a landfill should be to keep it empty. That might seem far-fetched but adopting zero-waste policies is exactly what that is all about. It is also something that Junk King San Diego Downtown has been striving to make happen with every rubbish removal session they’re involved in.

The Right Way

Junk King has been dedicated to disposing of the rubbish items that they collect the right way. This means avoiding those landfills at all cost. We manage to make this happen by diverting the rubbish away from landfills and towards charities and recycling center. All of our crews are trained to spot those items that can be used by a charity. Sometimes that might mean fixing a piece of furniture or appliance. That is actually an added bonus because when a charity employs someone to make those repairs, they are giving the local economy a boost.

You don’t have to determine which of your articles can be recycled or a charity drop off. The Junk King crew is going to take care of all aspects of that as part of the removal package. And there is no extra charge. You’ll always benefit from our pricing policy which is based on how the truck gets filled up and not how heavy the truck becomes when loaded up.
