Junk Removal Peninsula

Fast, eco-friendly junk removal and dumpster rental in San Carlos

Junk King Franchise Owner

Meet the Owner

In 2005, Michael Andreacchi, an entrepreneur at his core, co-founded Junk King out of his two-car garage in San Carlos. Since then he has helped grow Junk King to more than 150 locations across the U.S and Canada while still staying deeply involved with his very first location, Junk King Peninsula. He has built a strong team of dedicated and innovative individuals who continue to find ways to enhance the junk removal experience.

Michael works closely with the general managers of Junk King Peninsula, Jordan and JT, and together they have developed a training program for its crew members to ensure each person who schedules a pickup with Junk King receives unparalleled customer service. The program also gives the crew an opportunity to grow as professionals and build a comradery among all the team members.

“When I started Junk King, I was looking to bring something new and exciting to the junk removal industry. It is no secret the impact human waste has had on the environment. I knew that as a company we were going to do everything we could to help people reduce their environmental footprint and help local communities minimize the waste that goes into their landfills,” adds Andreacchi. “I also knew that providing top-notch customer service was going to be at the core of Junk King’s philosophy. Our crew will always do everything we can to meet the needs of our customers.”

From furniture removal, to yard debris removal, to attic clean outs, and appliance recycling, there is not job too big or too small for Junk King Peninsula. The team maintains relationships with local recyclers, donation shops and nonprofit organizations so all items either get recycled, repurposed or donated giving them a chance to have another life.

Junk Removal in Peninsula

Items We Take for Residential Junk Removal

If you’re a homeowner or renter living in the Peninsula, from San Bruno to Mountain View, you may often find yourself needing to get rid of junk.

But you may also find that junk removal can be somewhat difficult depending on where you live and what kind of vehicle you own. Whether that means you live in a third story apartment, only have a small sedan, or have no idea where to take your junk.

And this is a challenge for residents throughout the Peninsula.

No worries! At Junk King Peninsula, we have the solution for all your junk removal needs!

In addition to whatever junk you need to get rid of today, we’re available to take almost every type of residential junk item you might have. When you call Junk King Peninsula we’ll come to your home and haul away whatever other unwanted household items you need to dispose of such as used exercise equipment, old furniture, and broken appliances,

Large items or small, just about everything and anything you need to dispose of can go into our big, red trucks (except for hazardous waste.)

Here’s a quick preview of what take:

Old Mattresses

Regularly replacing your old mattress is recommended since we spend almost a third of our lives sleeping on them. In fact, the Sleep Foundation says,

“Under normal conditions, mattresses should be replaced every 6 to 8 years. Of course, this is a general guideline and not a one-size-fits-all solution. There are various factors that influence when you should replace your mattress.”

But after you buy a new mattress, what do you do with the old one? There are probably thousands of homes in the Peninsula region with old mattresses out in the garage or in a storage shed, getting older and taking up valuable space.

Junk King Peninsula offers you an easy, quick, and eco-friendly mattress removal service that makes the whole process easy for you.

Our experienced mattress removal team will haul that mattress away without damaging any of your home on the way out. We do the heavy lifting, so you don’t need to drag it out to the curb. Best of all, we’ll make sure that the mattress or bed is disposed of at a proper recycling facility so that it doesn’t harm our ecosystem.

Used Appliances

Most large household appliances can weigh hundreds of pounds and are so large that they can be dangerous to move. That’s why getting rid of an old appliance can be a burden.

Two things to know is that Junk King Peninsula can quickly and easily remove your old appliance. And it won’t have to go to a landfill since almost all of your appliances can be recycled.

This is true because your old household appliances are almost always made of materials like steel, aluminum, glass, and plastics, all of which are recyclable. So, when you call Junk King Peninsula, you can be certain that as many of your appliances as possible are recycled. And that includes refrigerators, ovens, and even air conditioning units!

Here’s a short list of other types of appliances can we remove for you:

  • Air Conditioners
  • Dishwashers/Trash Compactors
  • Stoves/Ovens/Microwaves
  • Water Heaters
  • Washing Machines/Dryers

Old Furniture

Whether you’re moving to another location in the Peninsula area, or you’ve finally replaced your old furniture with new pieces, you need to get rid of the old furniture.

It can be difficult to get rid of old furniture you don’t want to keep or take with you. As we all know, most furniture pieces are heavy, bulky, and hard to pick up and move. You often need help to do so and, if you want to dispose of them, you need a suitable vehicle to do that.

And, if you do get them out of your house and you have a truck, you must still figure out what to do with them.

This is why we recommend that you call Junk King Peninsula to haul off your old furniture. And, when you do, you’ll help the environment as we work hard to recycle your old furniture pieces.

Here are some examples of the furniture we can pick up from you:

  • Couches
  • Sofas
  • Chairs
  • Tables
  • Bookcases
  • Desks
  • Credenzas
  • Armoires

Yard Waste and Debris

Homes and properties in the various Peninsula cities have wonderful yards and landscaping. But, when it comes to getting rid of yard waste, it can often mean far more than just removing some grass and leaf debris.

Yard waste can also include shrubbery, branches, root balls, and everything left over from what you’ve cut, pruned, trimmed, or dug up out of your yard.

When “yard cleanup” turns into a major outdoor makeover project, you’re likely to end up with far more yard waste and debris than your one green residential waste bin can manage. That’s when you know you need a yard waste removal service.

We understand that hauling and disposing of your excess yard waste can take a great deal of time and a great deal of work. But a quick call to Junk King Peninsula can make it a quick, simple, and easy task instead.

Electronic Waste Items (E-Waste)

It’s easy to take all of our electronic devices for granted. And, because they have become so numerous and so affordable, we tend to toss out our old electronics when they stop working or when we replace them with newer versions.

However, this also means we create massive amounts of E-Waste, or electronic waste, in our homes. All those old electronic gadgets and devices end up unused and collecting dust on a shelf or in a drawer.

And E-Waste isn’t limited to small electronics.

E-Waste also includes larger electronic devices and even some appliances. And the disposal problem just gets bigger with those larger electronics. Largely this is due to the fact that you cannot legally just throw most of these things into your household trash.

The good news, however, is that making use of Junk King Peninsula’s E-Waste removal service means not worrying about properly disposing of those old electronic items. That’s because we make sure your old electronics end up in the right place, whether that’s a non-profit organization for functioning items, or a recycling facility for those that do not.

We haul away all types of e-waste, including:

  • Computers
  • Monitors
  • Printers
  • Copy Machines
  • Shredders

Large and Excess Trash

Do you sometimes need trash removal more than just once a week? Or maybe you have bulk trash items that your municipal waste management won’t pick up? If you can’t get rid of it with your own vehicle, what can you do?

Junk King Peninsula can help with our convenient and environmentally friendly trash removal service that makes large trash removal easy for you. Our experienced teams will haul out your heavy trash items without damaging your home on the way out. And we do all the heavy lifting – no need to carry items out to the curb.

And we make sure that as many of your trash items as possible are disposed of at a proper recycling facility.

Used Hot Tubs

Hot tubs are popular in the Bay Area and the Peninsula communities. What is not so popular is the task of breaking down and disposing of your old hot tub yourself.

It’s a very labor-intensive process to break down your old hot tub and, if you manage to accomplish that task, you then have to think about where to haul away the pieces. You need to determine if they’ll fit in your car or truck. If so, you still need to know where to responsibly dispose of the different parts.

Fortunately, Junk King Peninsula offers a both easy and eco-friendly hot tub removal service.

You want to enjoy your new hot tub and not have to worry about the hauling and disposal of that old hot tub. No worries there – we do it all. Just show us where the old hot tub is, and our hot tub removal pros will break it down and carry it to our specialized truck.

Best of all, we also make sure that your old spa materials end up in the right place, such as a recycling facility to ensure your tub is disposed of in an eco-friendly way.

The Peninsula’s Best Commercial Junk Removal

Commercial Junk Removal and the Items We Take

In your business, you’ve probably noticed that the waste management company won’t take all the commercial junk items you place by the dumpsters.

You might be able to arrange for a special pick up and pay them additional fees for that service, but if you need large commercial junk removal needs regularly, that can be costly and unfeasible.

For most commercial junk disposal, your only other options for getting rid of large junk is to do it yourself, or you hire someone to do it for you.

While the DIY route may seem cheaper, dumping your own junk may not save you money.

Your employee’s time is required for the job and you’re paying for that time. In addition, your actual cost is doubled since the time spent loading, hauling, and dumping is time your employees are not being productive in your business. So, it costs money to remove and dispose of it and you incur opportunity costs in the process.

We’ve got a solution for you. At Junk King Peninsula we specialize in providing all types of efficient and cost-effective commercial junk removal services.

Here’s an overview of some of the items we take:

Office Furniture Removal

If you recently remodeled your workplace or upgraded your office furnishings, you probably still need to get rid of the old furniture that is too worn out to sell or donate.

The problem, however, is that disposing of office furniture yourself can be far more work and trouble than you may want to deal with.

Fortunately, by hiring a professional furniture removal firm like Junk King Peninsula, all the heavy lifting is done by us and we haul it all away for you quickly and efficiently. That’s a few reasons why choosing a reliable office furniture removal service is smart. Also, using Junk King Peninsula is smart because it’s far easier than doing it yourself.

And, best of all, at Junk King Peninsula, we ensure that your old furniture will be donated or sent to a recycling facility. That means you can always know your old furniture has been disposed of in an eco-friendly way.

Commercial Equipment Removal

Businesses routinely accumulate old equipment that can’t be sold or donated. These are items that are too old to use or don’t work. Unfortunately, many of these businesses also tend to just let that equipment take up space in shops, warehouses, or on the side of a loading dock.

Sometimes there is an effort made to get rid of it, but usually it never happens due to the time, effort, and cost of loading it all and hauling it away for disposal. What these businesses need is a good solution for their commercial equipment removal problem.

May we suggest outsourcing the job to a local, reliable, and professional junk hauling firm?

Outsourcing it will actually cost you less in the long run, and the size or volume of your business’s junk makes hauling and removing it yourself is a challenge, especially if yours is a small business. Fortunately, you have Junk King Peninsula – your Number One solution for outsourcing equipment removal.

Construction Debris Removal

Construction projects can be found all over the Peninsula region. And all of them have at least one thing in common: the ongoing task of construction debris removal.

Of course, “taking out the trash” on a construction site doesn’t add to the actual construction or to the bottom line. But construction debris removal needs to be well-managed and well-planned to maintain a project’s cost-effectiveness.

And a great way to do that is by outsourcing debris removal to a reputable, professional hauling company like Junk King Peninsula. The very real benefits to this approach far outweigh the perceived cost-savings of doing it yourself.

These include the convenience and the peace of mind that comes with an unpopular task done right and done efficiently. And you save more money than you would by using your own crew since you don’t have to take them off the job site just to haul debris.

Property Management Cleanouts

People and businesses are constantly moving all over the Peninsula. That means the landlords and property managers are regularly left with vacated properties likely to have junk that must be removed before the property can be cleaned and rented again.

Unfortunately, this happens more often than you might think. The problem is that many former occupants leave trash, junk furniture, and other materials behind when they vacate a property. And it is the property manager or landlord that is left figuring out how to best clean it out.

That’s why our property cleanout solution can make your property management job a whole lot easier. We offer a quick and affordable junk removal service and encourage you to make Junk King Peninsula your go-to partner for home, apartment, and rental property cleanouts.

Storage Facility Cleanouts

Between San Francisco and San Jose, there was an estimated 4.8 million square feet of storage under construction and in the planning stages in early 2020 And this is in addition to the already existing millions of square feet of self-storage units.

And they are all being filled all the time.

Part of this is because American own more personal belongings per person on average than the residents of all other countries. And we need someplace to keep it all.

When a self-storage unit tenant cancels or simply leaves and abandons their unit, the storage facility owner or manager often finds large amounts of junk left in the units. And, unfortunately, the owner or manager is the one who must clean out the abandoned unit so they can get it rented out again.

Junk King Peninsula knows the score when it comes to storage facility cleanouts. Simply give us a call and we can haul the junk away, while making everything fast and stress-free for you.
