Junk Removal for HOA’s and How It Can Help You Cut Costs


HOA Junk removal


Homeowner associations are responsible for many things, but junk removal is not always one of them.


A homeowner association (HOA) is an organization in a subdivision, planned community, or condominium building that makes and enforces rules for the properties and residents. In addition, many HOAs provide certain services for their members in exchange for the fees received. 


Typically, the HOA management will provide amenities for all HOA members that may include:


  • Landscaping
  • Parking lots
  • Swimming pools
  • Tennis courts
  • Party spaces


And some HOA fees may also cover the cost of trash collection and even junk removal. But is junk removal service for an HOA a cost-effective or even necessary option?

What is Junk Removal for HOAs?


junk removal santee


We touched on some of the duties and services that homeowner associations provide, but what does an HOA do about junk removal?


If the junk in question is the result of maintenance, repairs, or construction carried under the auspices of the HOA, then the organization will typically have their maintenance staff, if they have any, clean up and haul any junk, rubbish, or debris that is generated. 


If they have no staff for that type of work, then an HOA will need to contract with a professional junk hauling firm such as Junk King San Diego, for example.


But what if the junk that needs to be removed is from a resident? HOA rules on junk removal can vary from one property to another. However, most HOAs have strict rules on a variety of practices and trash and junk disposal are included.


As a recent Bankrate article noted,


“Homeowners in an HOA can get into trouble for throwing certain items, like boxes that haven’t been broken down or pieces of furniture, into community dumpsters.”


However, many residents may be hard pressed to haul away and dispose of their household and residential junk themselves. Not everyone owns or has easy access to a truck, and many older residents may not be able to manage the work of junk removal. 


Which is why some HOAs have opted to include junk removal services as one of the benefits available to their resident members.


Why Junk Removal for HOAs Can Help you Reduce Costs and Increase Property Values


All HOAs have regulations and rules regarding the cleanliness and upkeep of properties. And these often include the proper disposal of bulk trash and debris from yards. However, enforcing these rules can often be a burden for HOAs that are understaffed. 


Also, if random piles of large trash or household junk is deposited elsewhere on the grounds of a community that is within the purview of the HOA, the task of removing that junk falls on the HOA eventually. And this can be costly.


In addition, if residential junk is allowed to sit in yards for extended periods of time, the overall aesthetic is marred and, quite possibly, property values can begin to decrease.


A great option for decreasing the costs of periodic junk removal and for maintaining and even improving the property values of the homes or condos managed by an HOA is to have an ongoing contract with a professional junk removal firm like Junk King San Diego.


While San Diego has a fairly mild climate year-round, there are still the occasional storms that can create a bit of a mess with broken tree branches and even some damage to buildings and fences. When these instances arise and there are multiple piles of debris and junk to be removed, having a reliable junk removal vendor on hand can be far more cost-effective and efficient than relying on individual homeowners to take care of it.

Junk King Frequently Asked Questions


At Junk King San Diego we often receive questions regarding HOAs and junk removal. Here are a few of them:


What does a typical HOA remove?


Some of the things that can begin to accumulate in residential common areas when homeowner HOA members use those areas as “community” storage locations include:


  • Bikes
  • Golf clubs
  • Grills
  • Couches
  • Boxes
  • Appliances
  • Car parts
  • And more.


HOAs also have the power to demand that residents remove certain types of vehicles, such as RVs, boats, or even broken down cars, from the property or have them removed, if deemed necessary.


What types of junk can Junk King San Diego remove for an HOA?


At Junk King, we are equipped and trained to remove just about anything from construction debris and old office equipment to large furniture and appliances to large scale yard debris and even old hot tubs. There are few things that we cannot haul as a commercial junk removal firm.


Household hazardous waste is one of those things, as well as pressure treated wood. This material became designated as a hazardous material January 1, 2021. Treated wood waste is any wood treated with chemical preservatives to protect from insects and decay. It is often used for fence posts, landscape timbers, railroad ties, sill plates, and deck joists.

How to Remove a Shed: Shed Removal Tips and Tricks


Shed removal


Suburban life differs a bit from that found in the downtown areas of cities like San Diego. Those in apartments, condominiums, and townhouses rarely have enough storage, for example, and they almost never have a storage shed. 


While many of these residents may be renting a storage unit at a nearby self-storage facility, any kind of shed is unlikely to be had. Of course, some urban homes may have a back porch or even a sizable patio. In those instances, it’s not unusual for folks to set up a small tool shed, usually one of the heavy-duty plastic models. 


But for those living in single-family houses, the preponderance of backyard sheds is on a whole other level.


And one of the facts of suburban life is that those sheds don’t last forever, and many will need to be removed eventually.


Why Do You Need to Remove Your Shed?


There are a few reasons why you need a shed removal and chief among these is the eventual breakdown of your old shed. And when it comes to removing sheds, the reasons for it and the methods required largely depend on the construction of the sheds.


Generally speaking, backyard sheds – whether they’re used for storing tools, storing toys and other outdoor items, or used for gardening purposes – are constructed of one of three types of materials:


  • Wood
  • Metal
  • Plastic


Wooden sheds, which are increasingly less common, are subject to wood rot, decay, and general sagging and deterioration. Metal construction is far more resistant to decay but do fall victim to rust unless they’re constructed of aluminum. 


According to one article,


“A metal shed can be made of either steel or galvanized aluminum. Metal sheds have been available for many years and are a common first-time shed purchase because they are the least expensive shed kit option. However, they are not as strong as resin or wooden sheds.”


The most popular material being used today seems to be plastic resin. These resin sheds are also known as plastic sheds, vinyl sheds, or high-density polyethylene (HDPE) sheds. Resin sheds are usually constructed of a high quality plastic material making them lighter, stronger, and more durable than wooden sheds.


Nonetheless, any backyard or outdoor shed will eventually reach a point where it is no longer usable or simply needs to be replaced. Which means that it has to be removed.


And that begs the question, how does a shed removal work?

Step by Step Guide for How to Remove a Shed


The good news is that for most sheds and most homeowners or tenants, the first part of shed removal – dismantling the shed – is within their realm of abilities and skill sets.


Of course, not everyone wants to take on that type of project which is why preferred junk removal firms like Junk King San Diego can often take care of that for you with our professional shed removal service. 


But, if you are more of a DIY type of homeowner, here’s a step-by-step guide for getting your shed ready for removal and disposal.


Step 1: Empty the Shed

  • For items you want to keep, make sure they’re moved and stored somewhere safe before you start your shed demolition.
  • Everything else should go into three piles: junk/debris, donate/recycle, and hazardous disposal items.


Step 2: Remove Windows

  • Remove trim, if any, from the interior and exterior of the windows.
  • Remove any window jambs or frames and remove the window sashes.
  • Pry the window frame from the wall opening.


Step 3: Take Off Doors

  • With the door closed, tap the hinge pins on the bottom of the pin with a hammer and nail.
  • Once loose, use a flat-head screwdriver to drive up on the underside of the pinheads to remove them.


Step 4: Tear Off Roof

  • The roof is the place to start whether you’re tearing down a wooden, resin, or metal shed.
  • Taking the proper safety precautions when using ladders. For traditional roofs, carefully strip shingles off first.
  • Disassemble any wooden or metal framework of your roof structure.


Step 5: Tear Down Walls

  • Start with the wall with the doorway in it, as it is the least structurally sound.
  • In wooden sheds, remove any existing drywall.
  • Pry or unscrew and remove the walls one by one.


Step 6: Pull Up Floor

  • If there’s wood flooring, pry it up using a pry bar or flooring tool.
  • If there is no flooring but a concrete slab, this will have to be broken up and removed unless you choose to leave it in place.


Once your shed has been completely dismantled, the final step is to clean up and remove the debris. Ideally, you should have three piles to dispose of: debris, reuse or recycle, and special disposal (for hazardous materials)


Of course, those large piles of debris and other items can lead to even more pressing questions such as “How do you remove a shed?” and “How long does it take to remove a shed?” And, of course, the answers all depend on other factors. Are you doing everything yourself? How large is your shed? And are you considering a professional shed removal service instead?


So, perhaps a better question to ask is “How do you get rid of your old shed easily and affordably?”


And that’s where the experts at Junk King San Diego can help!

Tips & Tricks When Removing a Shed


San Diego Shed Removal


We already considered the question of how long should it take to remove a shed? The most obvious answer is “It depends.” But to be more specific, an average size backyard shed can usually be fully dismantled in a day even by one person without help. 


However, this too depends on the construction, materials, and type of shed being taken down.


Also, you should consider some things not allowed when removing sheds such as a demolition permit for certain types or sizes of structures. 


Keep in mind that when you replace your old shed with a newer – and possibly bigger – model, that a permit may be required.


For example, the County of San Diego specifies that a building permit shall not be required for one-story detached accessory buildings used as non-habitable space such as tool or storage sheds provided the floor area does not exceed 120 square feet and no plumbing, electrical or mechanical permit is required for the structure.


These accessory buildings, however, shall be subject to County Zoning Ordinance requirements and limitations.


It is safer to check with the city and the county first, especially if a permit was required to build or install your shed in the first place.


How to Remove a Shed Successfully


Once your old shed has been completely dismantled, deconstructed, or simply demolished, it is time to remove the remains of that shed. And this can be an overwhelming task for most homeowners or renters. 


While there are many pickup truck owners in the City of San Diego and the greater San Diego area, not everyone owns a truck. So, that puts a wrinkle in the process right at the start. And cleaning up and loading all the parts, materials, and debris can be a bit difficult for many residents, especially those that are older or have physical limitations.


All of which is why we highly recommend turning to the experts in local shed removal service: Junk King San Diego.


Simply give us a call and we can have all that debris and junk cleared up, loaded, and hauled away quickly, safely, and affordably. And best of all, if you need help with dismantling your old shed, we can often take care of that for you, too!


Just let us know what you have and what needs to be done and we can provide you with a free estimate and let you know what we can or cannot do for you when it comes to the actual demolition.
