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.

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).”
