Where To Take Yard Waste Near Me?


Even though we are still in the dog days of summer, the cooler fall months are just around the corner. For homeowners with large yards, or business owners who have yearly landscaping routine to keep their business looking attractive to potential clients, dealing with the brush, lawn trimmings, fallen leaves, tree limbs, and other commons sources of yard waste can be a nightmare. Most public waste management companies put strict limits on how much yard waste can be thrown away at any one given time. In most cases, you will have to schedule a bulky yard waste pickup date several weeks in advance. Even if you are able to schedule a pickup, you will still be responsible for hauling those heavy tree limbs and dozens of bagged leaves out to the curb in front of your home or business at the crack of dawn.

Hiring a private junk removal company offers a much easier way to deal with your accumulated sources of yard waste this fall. If you are looking for the easiest, most stress-free and affordable to clean up your property, Junk King of San Fernando Valley is here to help you. We are proud to be the top-rated junk removal service offering our commercial and residential junk hauling and trash pickup services to residents of the wider San Fernando Valley area, including the communities of Agoura Hills, Calabasas, Canoga Park, Chatsworth, Granada Hills, Los Angeles, Newbury Park, North Hollywood, Oak Park, Porter Ranch, San Fernando, Thousand Oaks, West Hills, Westlake Village, and Woodland Hills.

Below, we will take a quick look at a few reasons why you should choose Junk King to help you haul away your yard waste this fall.

Junk King of San Fernando Valley turns your Yard Waste into Mulch and Compost

Unfortunately, many junk removal companies out there don’t have the same firm commitment to protecting the environment that Junk King has shown. In the specific case of yard waste, many companies might take those fallen tree limbs and grass clippings, and simply toss them over a bridge into river, or leave them along the roadside throughout our communities. But what exactly happens to those leaves, grass clippings, and branches when they slowly decompose in our local creeks, streams, rivers, or lakes?

Organic material like yard waste that decomposes in bodies of water contributes to depleting levels of oxygen in the water. This can negatively affect aquatic life, such as fish, and can also lead to unsightly algae growth in the water. When organic waste such as grass clippings, branches, twigs, tree leaves, and other sources of yard waste are left in the street, they will eventually end up being washed down nearest drain for the storm water drainage system. Over time, this increases the likelihood of these sewer systems becoming blocked. In severe weather events, this can contribute to potentially dangerous flooding.

In the case of junk removal companies who take yard waste to the nearest landfill, there are other negative environmental consequences that need to be taken into consideration. Our landfills in southern California are already quickly filling up, and sending enormous amounts of yard waste to our local dumps only puts further stress on our waste management systems. Furthermore, when yard waste (which is an organic material) decomposes amongst inorganic waste materials it creates what is known as landfill gas.

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) states that “landfill gas (LFG) is a natural byproduct of the decomposition of organic material in landfills. LFG is composed of roughly 50 percent methane (the primary component of natural gas), 50 percent carbon dioxide (CO2) and a small amount of non-methane organic compounds. Methane is a potent greenhouse gas 28 to 36 times more effective than CO2 at trapping heat in the atmosphere over a 100-year period, per the latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) assessment report (AR5).”

Thousand Oaks Trash Pickup: What You Need to Know to Keep our City Clean



The City of Thousand Oaks is a model of a clean and sustainable suburban community in Ventura County, California. For the past 25 years, our community has been at the forefront of recycling and reducing our overall trash footprint. Even back at the turn of the millennium when recycling services were still relatively rare around the country, Thousand Oaks reported a diversion rate of 66 percent in its 1999 annual report to the California Integrated Waste Management Board (CIWMB). During that year, the city diverted 153,024 tons of waste, including 12,388 tons of recyclables and 17,320 tons of green waste through city-sponsored residential and commercial programs.

Fast forward a couple decades, and our city continues to be one of the cleanest and most sustainable cities across the country. Unfortunately, in recent years, there has been a notable increase in the amount of illegal dumping sites popping up around Ventura County. According to one recent news report, “in 2020, public works crews and their contractors collected 278 mattresses that had been illegally dumped along county roads.” 

One of the easiest ways to deal with excess junk laying around your home and business (while also avoiding the potentially heavy fines that come with illegal dumping) is to hire a private junk removal company. For homeowners, business owners, and other residents of Thousand Oaks, Junk King of San Fernando Valley is here to help you. We are proud to be the top-rated junk removal service offering our commercial and residential junk hauling and trash pickup services to residents of the wider San Fernando Valley area, including the communities of Agoura Hills, Calabasas, Canoga Park, Chatsworth, Granada Hills, Los Angeles, Newbury Park, North Hollywood, Oak Park, Porter Ranch, San Fernando, Thousand Oaks, West Hills, Westlake Village, and Woodland Hills.

In this short article, we´ll briefly explain why residents of Thousand Oaks would do well to choose Junk King of San Fernando Valley for all of your junk removal needs. 

Junk King is the Greenest Junk Removal Company Servicing Thousand Oaks 

Here at Junk King of San Fernando Valley, our business model is founded on the belief that both individuals, companies, local governments, and everyone in between should share in the responsibility of reducing our trash footprint. The cleanliness of our city and our high waste diversion rate make Thousand Oaks a pleasant place to live, and is one of the reasons why property prices continue to be among the highest in southern California. As the leading junk removal company in the southern California area, we want to do our part to be a good neighbor and reduce the negative effects that come with improperly disposing of junk items. 

When you hire us for any type of junk removal need, we are one of the few junk removal companies who can guarantee that our junk removal teams will take the extra time to sort through the junk items that we pick up. Whereas some companies will simply drive straight to the nearest landfill, our teams make sure to send re-usable items to thrift stores, donation centers, charities, and others. This not only keeps your junk items out of the landfill, but can also help to get used furniture, appliances, and other household items into the hands of people who need them in our community. For junk items that are not usable or are simply beyond repair, we also sort through them to ensure that every recyclable item is properly recycled.  

Today, we are proud to say that up to 60 percent of the junk items we pick up either get recycled, donated, or otherwise repurposed. In the case of appliances, electronics, and other sources of e-waste, we ensure a 100 percent donation or recycling rate. Furthermore, our company is dedicated to following all national, state-wide, and local laws and ordinances regarding safe and environmentally friendly junk removal. For example, we take extra precaution to ensure that all different types of household hazardous waste items like batteries, paint cans, etc. are either donated or sent to local recycling centers. We care about the health and well-being of our community and don’t want to contribute sources of toxic waste that could potentially cause serious health risks to our community. 

We also ensure that any “green waste” that we pick up such as lawn clippings, bags of leaves, fallen tree limbs, or food leftovers are properly composted. Recently, the California state legislature passed a new law requiring the separation and composting of food waste, yard waste, and other sources of organic waste. We are committed to keeping organic wastes out of local landfills where they can contribute to an enormous amount of methane emissions. Thus, for any type of organic waste that we pick up, we make every effort to abide by the relevant legislation that ensures that this type of waste is composted and turned into fertile top soil, instead of ending up in the local landfill. 

Junk King offers the Absolute Best Customer Service in Thousand Oaks 

Here at Junk King of San Fernando Valley, we also believe that getting rid of your junk shouldn’t be a hassle. When you hire us for your junk removal needs, you will not have to worry about a lengthy list of prohibited items that we will not be able to haul away. Rather, there are almost zero limits to what we can haul away: We can help you get rid of regular trash, used furniture items, construction debris, household junk, yard waste, small and medium sized appliances, e-waste, and virtually anything that is not classified as toxic waste in an environmentally friendly manner. 

We also understand that not everyone has the time or the means to deal with their trash on their own, and that nobody enjoys hauling heavy furniture, broken down appliances, or bags of yard waste out to the curb. When you hire us, our professional junk removal teams will do all of the heavy lifting and hauling for you. Just let us know what junk items you want removed from your home or business, and leave the rest to us.

Because we have bigger trucks by volume than most of our competitors, this allows us to keep our prices low. We can also guarantee to beat any written estimate.
