Use Junk King For Safe Yard Waste Cleanup

san diego yard waste removal

[This blog was originally published on April 30, 2020 and updated on December 28, 2020. ]

Things have a tendency to pile up around the house.

This is especially true if you are spending more time in that house. And with the recurring “stay at home” orders, sheltering in place, and the occasional need to self-quarantine, many of us are doing exactly that. 

But this tendency for things to pile up is also true for our backyards. And that can require yard waste cleanup.

In fact, many people have been taking advantage of this time at home to reinvigorate their lawns, landscaping, and even their backyard gardens. And, depending on where you live, vegetable gardens have become a very popular project for families to take on.

DIY Projects In Your Outdoor Space Means Yard Waste Cleanup

The problem, however, is that all this yard work, landscaping, and possibly creating new gardens can mean clearing away space and creating large piles of dirt, rocks, sod, and assorted landscape junk and debris. You may even have some old lawn furniture, dilapidated sheds, or even old hot tubs that no longer work sitting in your yard and taking up space.

Not to mention presenting a potential safety issue.

Any junk, debris, or piles of yard waste can potentially have rusty nails, exposed screws, metal fittings, rebar, or even broken glass laying around. These things can be dangerous for kids, pets, and for unfortunate adults who happen to trip over or bump into them. 

This is the kind of yard waste that you want to get cleaned up fast, and yard waste cleanup is exactly the type of service that Junk King San Diego can provide.

Some Additional Yard Waste Cleanup Precautions

Unless you’ve been asleep for most of 2020 you are painfully aware of the coronavirus pandemic and the complex assortment of restrictions that have been implemented to help protect everyone from COVID-19. These precautions, while presenting challenges for many businesses and for daily activities, have not prevented Junk King San Diego from removing junk.

In fact, our service is considered an “essential business” and we have gone to great lengths to accommodate the requirements of federal, state, and local health agencies. Junk King has put into place several precautions to make junk removal safe and worry-free for both our customers and our moving crews.

For example, following the recommendations of the CDC, all of our employees wear masks and gloves for every junk pickup. In the course of picking up and loading junk and debris, our teams maintain a reasonable social distance. For this reason, most of our pickups take place at the curbside whenever possible.

That means we can pick up your yard waste while you are safe on the porch!

However, when it comes to safe yard waste cleanup, we can still pick up everything wherever it happens to be piled up. That also includes dismantling any structure that you have in your backyard that you would like to bring down and dispose of.

Here’s what we’ve been incorporating into daily operations to adapt:

100% TOUCHLESS PICKUP – We’ll maintain a 6-foot distance from every customer. Our haulers can pick up curbside, never entering your home.


VIRTUAL ESTIMATES – Send photos to the Junk King team for a touchless price quote.


NO CONTACT PAYMENT – You can pay for our services over the phone to limit social exposure.


PROTECTIVE GEAR – Gloves, masks and hand sanitizers are provided on every truck used to protect you and our haulers.


At Junk King San Diego we have implemented touchless, no-contact junk removal practices that incorporate safety steps to keep everyone safe during this time of coronavirus concerns.

Safe Yard Waste Cleanup Means More Than Grass and Leaves

The types of materials that Junk King can pick up and remove makes for quite a long list.

For yard waste that can include anything from palm fronds to gravel, concrete rubble to old lumber, and even broken lawnmowers, trimmers, and hot tubs! 

And, of course, grass, leaves, tree trimmings, and other organic waste and debris.

But it’s good to know that Junk King San Diego can remove and dispose of far more than what you’ve piled up in the yard. If you are planning on having us come to clean up your outdoor waste piles, why not have us take that old, unused junk still clogging up your garage, attic, or tool shed?

In fact, we can take just about anything except hazardous waste, including:

  • Old furniture
  • Televisions
  • Used appliances
  • Old electronics
  • Trash and household garbage
  • Mattresses 
  • Refrigerators
  • and even construction waste

Essentially, if it’s something you no longer want or need, simply show us where it is and we’ll take care of it with our touchless, no-contact junk removal service.

What Does It Cost for Yard Waste Cleanup?

We know that simply saying, “It depends.” isn’t what you really want to know, but it’s true: the amount you pay is based solely on the amount of space your yard waste takes up in our truck.

This is how we maintain our policy of affordable pricing.

Our prices are always based on how much space a customer’s items take up in our trucks get packed up and never on how heavy the load is, like some companies do. This can make a big difference for you, especially when you are getting rid of large piles of rock and dirt!

And we work hard to ensure that our prices are better than any other licensed and insured, eco-friendly, recycling-based junk removal company in our trade area.

As we noted here, many junk hauling firms charge by weight. This is actually a disadvantage for customers with particularly heavy junk items such as old appliances or masonry rubble. You will never have that problem with Junk King San Diego.

Because we only charge by the amount of space your junk takes up in our trucks, this means savings for you and simple, transparent pricing.

And, along with great pricing, we always offer free estimates so you don’t have to wait to see what your junk will cost to be hauled off. And we also guarantee to beat any written estimate.

You can try it yourself by using our free pricing tool and estimator.

This tool can give you an estimate on your own by simply adding up the items you want us to haul away. Our pricing estimator will give you an online estimate of the actual price our friendly team will provide you with once they’re onsite.

It’s incredibly easy to set up your junk removal session with Junk King over the phone or online. And, if you book online, you can start saving right away with an automatic $20 off your junk removal job.
