Get Your Backyard in Order with Junk Removal Services

Summer’s officially been upon us now for a few weeks and there are few delights in life that are sweeter than a backyard BBQ with family and friends. And even if you choose to have a picnic potluck-style in your backyard, it’s a great time to enjoy your outdoor space.

Unless you haven’t taken the time to get your backyard in order.

Backyard Fun is Hard to Have with Junk, Garbage, Debris, and Trash

junk removal san diego

Okay, so maybe your yard isn’t all that bad. And maybe you just need to clean up a bit and get rid of a few things. But what if that cleanup ends up with a major pile of “stuff” that needs to be picked up?

Or the “few” things you need to get rid of are bigger than your vehicle can manage? 

There are times when something as seemingly simple as spiffing up your backyard space can become a job for professional junk removal services.

This is why Junk King San Diego specializes in residential and outdoor junk removal.

The good news is that no matter what kind of junk you need to get rid of, or where you live in the San Diego area – places such as La Mesa, Dulzura, Santee, El Cajón, Spring Valley, and Lakeside for example – we’ve got you covered. 

And regardless of whether you have just a small amount of junk and debris, or a major cleanup of truckload proportions, you really don’t have to get rid of it yourself. 

While taking the DIY route with junk removal and disposal may appeal to those who think they can save some money, the truth is that it can be far more efficient, cost-effective, and faster to let an expert firm like Junk King do it for you. 

This is especially true if you have large, bulky items, a massive amount of debris, or if you have no suitable vehicle to haul it all with.

When Your Backyard Junk is Bigger Than Your Car

Not everyone owns a pickup truck. And even if you do, you may not want to load junk and debris yourself, or perhaps you’re not really able to. Besides, some of it will likely fit in your household trash and recycling containers. 

But likely not everything. In fact, some of it may not even fit in your vehicle.

What kinds of things?

Your backyard may not have all these junk items and materials, but here’s a short list of some of the most common sources of backyard junk, waste, and debris:

Fallen-Down Fencing

The backyard fence is a fixture in many homes, but they don’t last forever. It may be a short section that needs to be replaced or, eventually, the whole thing needs to come down and be replaced. 

Depending on whether you do it yourself or hire a fencing contractor, there’s a chance the old fencing material can be loaded up and disposed of for you. However, it’s far more likely that you’ll end up having to take care of piles of old fence boards, brackets, and debris yourself. 

Dismantled Decks

Does your backyard have the added feature of a wooden deck? If so, then you also know that this means regular cleaning, sealing, and other maintenance. How well and how often this is done will determine the lifespan of your deck. But it will need to be replaced at some point.

Dismantling a wooden deck takes a great deal of work but is not especially challenging in terms of complexity or difficulty. Disposing of all the planks, beams, rails, and other deck debris can be, however. Much like old fencing, it can be a hazard if left somewhere piled up in your backyard. Not to mention an unattractive feature for summer backyard get-togethers.

Tilting Tool Sheds

Whether it’s plywood and timber, or molded plastic, the ubiquitous tool shed is a common addition in many backyards. Depending on your location and the types of seasonal weather you experience, having a tool shed or storage shed can be a requisite feature for your home. 

But they do get old. And they do have to be replaced periodically. And the old ones must be gotten rid of. Once they’ve been taken apart and dismantled, all the parts and pieces will need to be disposed of somehow. And it’s highly unlikely they’ll fit in your recycling bin – or the trunk of your car.

Landscaping Leftovers

Yard waste can be something as simple as piles of cut grass clippings, raked up leaves, and all the trimmings from pruning your gardens. The truth is that much of this can either go into a compost bin, if you have one, or your organic recycling bin. Sometimes, however, if the project was especially big, all your backyard cleanup debris and waste may be too much for your bins.

And, if you have decided to install a major landscaping upgrade or makeover to your property this summer, then your yard waste is going to include all the leftover junk, garbage, waste, and debris that gets generated by this type of project. 

Hulking Hot Tubs

Learn More About Items We TakeDepending on where you live and how much privacy your backyard affords you, a hot tub may be one of your outdoor features. Hot tubs don’t last forever, unfortunately, and you may find yourself needing to replace yours with a new, state-of-the-art hot tub or Jacuzzi. But you still have the old one to get rid of.

Hot tub disposal is not an easy task, especially if you try to do it all yourself. These beasts are far too large and bulky to simply pick up and load into your pickup truck, assuming you have one. And you can’t just drag it around the side of the house and out to the curb and hope the garbage truck crew will take it away for you. They won’t.

House Cleanouts and Junk Removal Services in San Diego

house and property cleanout services in downtown san diego

The United States has one of the most mobile populations in the world.

In fact, according to the United States Census Bureau, the average person in America will move as many as 11.7 times in their life. There are a variety of reasons why people relocate, but here are the main motivators:

  • 48 percent of moves relate directly to the housing
  • 30.3 percent of moves are family-related
  • 19.4 percent of relocations have to do with a job change
  • 2.3 percent of moves fall into “other”

While we have no exact figures for how many folks move from their homes in San Diego each year, it’s certainly quite a few. With an estimated population of more than 1,420,000 the city boasts approximately 500,000 housing units. 

So, if even just one percent of these households vacate each year, that’s over 5,000 move outs, which means almost 15 empty houses a day, on average.

That’s a vast number of house cleanouts and junk removal that needs to be done!

When You Need a House Cleanout and Junk Removal Services

The reasons for a house cleanout are numerous, but the most common scenario is a simple move out from one house to another. Whether it’s the prior homeowner that takes care of it or their real estate agent, a house cleanout is often needed before the house either goes on the market or is vacated.

At other times, a house cleanout can be the result of a foreclosure. Fortunately, the number of foreclosures has decreased dramatically since the infamous housing crash of 2008. Unfortunately, they still occur, even in San Diego.

According to a recent article from Norada Real Estate,

“The foreclosure rate in San Diego County is below the national and California average. There were 2,744 foreclosure filings in 2019 in San Diego County, said Attom Data Solutions, which includes default notices, scheduled auctions, and bank repossessions.

That’s down from 3,390 in 2018 and 4,025 in 2017. It is the lowest number of foreclosure filings for San Diego County in more than a decade, and a sharp contrast to the 49,125 foreclosure filings in 2009.”

Most, if not all, homes that go into foreclosure end up being vacated by the previous owners. And, in many cases, they need to be cleaned thoroughly and – in some cases – will need a substantial amount of junk removal, as well.

This is why Junk King San Diego specializes in house cleanouts along with other junk removal services.

Other situations involve rental homes.

As we noted earlier here, people are constantly on the move. In fact, according to the Census Bureau, almost 13 percent of renters move annually.

Property managers throughout the city of San Diego are familiar with the need to keep their properties leased as much as possible. The challenge is in the transition process between a tenant leaving and having the house ready for a new tenant as soon as possible.

But the problem is that these vacated properties cannot be leased again until any junk is removed and the property is cleaned. Every day a rental property sits unoccupied and full of junk is time that goes by without collecting rent.

And property managers have far more important and productive tasks on their plates than taking care of junk removal and house cleanouts!

In these scenarios, a quick call to Junk King San Diego means being able to outsource this work to a reputable, professional hauling company. And the advantages of this option far outweigh the perceived benefits of doing it yourself.

With Junk King on the job, you can have confidence and the peace of mind comes with knowing we will do the job right and do it quickly. And the cost is often far less than doing it yourself or with your own staff.

Junk King San Diego Makes House Cleanouts a Green Process

It’s certainly easy enough for a couple of guys with a truck to load up junk, old furniture, maybe an abandoned appliance or two, and haul all this to the landfill. 

Easy, but not good.

For starters, putting anything into our landfills should be treated as a “last resort” option. There are three major landfills open in San Diego County, only one city-owned and operated landfill and that is the Miramar Landfill. And it is filling faster than projected.

According a story from The San Diego Union-Tribune,

“Mayor Kevin Faulconer announced in 2015 that the projected life of the city’s main dump had been extended from 2022 to 2030 thanks to new city recycling policies, trash compaction methods and other innovations.

But recently city officials launched an environmental analysis of the potential impacts of increasing the height of the 1,400-acre dump from 485 feet above sea level now to 510 feet above sea level.

A vertical expansion is the city’s only option. The last possible horizontal expansion of the landfill, into the western portion of the site, took place in 2008.”

And, as recently as May 2021, San Diego City Councilman Joe LaCava noted that the “Miramar landfill is going to reach capacity by 2025.”

At Junk King San Diego, we treat landfills as a “last resort” and work hard to recycle and reuse as much of everything we pick up as possible.

In fact, Junk King has been recognized as North America’s greenest junk removal service and we are proud to have pioneered recycling-based junk removal back in 2005. We started out as being green then and have been going greener ever since.

One of the ways we do this is to sort every job for metals, e-waste, paper, household goods, textiles, furniture, and appliances, in our recycling warehouses.

But “being green” also means we donate, repurpose, and reuse as much as we can from everything we pick up from clothing, toys, baby cribs, and strollers to office furniture, electronics, and supplies.

In fact, we recycle up to 65 percent of every job we collect.

Junk King San Diego is committed to continue leading the way to help keep our planet and our city clean, green, and beautiful for generations to come.

When Your Junk is More Than You or Your Trash Bins Can Manage

We get it. Not everything that becomes junk has to be hauled off in a big junk removal truck. You’ve got dumpsters at work or at your apartment complex for lots of stuff. And, if it fits, you can usually take care of the smaller junk by putting it in your residential trash bins. 

Until you can’t.

Sometimes the things are too large, too bulky, and there’s too much of it. Like when you’re moving. Or after a major spring cleaning binge. Or the debris from a kitchen renovation. And maybe even from all the landscaping, you did last week.

As you probably already know, it doesn’t take much to have more junk, debris, trash, and garbage than you can stuff into your household bins. And if your commercial dumpster is already full, then you’re just out of luck.

So, who are you gonna call?

The good news is that when you need junk pick up in San Diego you can rely on Junk King to take care of all your junk removal needs quickly, efficiently, and affordably.

Junk King San Diego specializes in both residential and commercial junk pick up and removal. From Serra Mesa to Castle Park and Pacific Beach to La Mesa, we’ve got you covered with professional and reliable junk removal services. 

What do we pick up? 

We pick up and remove just about anything you need to get rid of except hazardous materials. The items we pick up include:

  • • Furniture 
  • • Televisions
  • • Yard Waste
  • • Appliances
  • • Hot Tubs
  • • Electronics
  • • Bulk Trash
  • • Mattresses
  • • Refrigerators
  • • Excess Garbage

If you’ve got junk and you’re not sure that we can pick it up for you, just give us a call or text us a picture of it and we’ll let you know if we can and give a free estimate, to boot!

Junk Pick in San Diego Can Be Affordable

At Junk King San Diego, we always strive to deliver the best junk removal service in our area, but also the best pricing for our services, as well. That’s because we believe that junk pick up should be affordable.

Getting rid of your junk can be a problem, but not when you use Junk King for your junk pick up and disposal. That’s because we don’t charge by the weight of your load like most other junk removal companies do. We only charge by the amount of space your junk takes up in our trucks.

That means no matter whether you have a 200-pound pile of old carpet and wood debris that takes up a third of the truck space, or stacks of old cardboard boxes and newspapers that take up the same amount of space but only weigh 100 pounds. You still pay the same price!

And when our professional and courteous junk pick up team arrives at your home or workplace, we’ll provide you with a no-obligation price. One of the hallmarks of our company is our fair and transparent pricing and we make it a point of pride to ensure that our pricing is the lowest in our service area.

Junk Pick Up in San Diego Can Be Green

One of the interesting things about “junk” is that once it’s gone from your home or place of work, you usually never think about it again. But what happens to it after it’s gone?

Unfortunately, the traditional approach has been to simply transport almost everything to the nearest landfill and dump it all there. But landfills are not the best solution for junk disposal nor are they going to be available forever.

This is why Junk King pioneered the concept of green junk removal and disposal when the company was founded in 2005. We were the first truly green and eco-friendly junk removal service in the industry, and it’s been Junk King’s mission to recycle as much of the junk items we pick up as possible.

The heart of our company’s mission is to recycle at least 60 percent of everything we pick up. Regardless of what those junk items are, where they come from, and what they’re made of, we do our best each day to achieve our overriding goal of recycling as much as possible.

And, at Junk King San Diego, being green is much more than having a recycling logo on our trucks – it’s what we do.

We have always pursued the most eco-friendly junk removal and disposal practices possible, and we’ll continue to do all that we can to help protect the environment and use sustainable alternatives to landfills.

All of which means that, by using Junk King for your junk pick up in San Diego, you’re supporting a green alternative to traditional junk removal practices, as well.

At Junk King San Diego, our disposal process involves us taking all the junk and waste materials that we’ve picked up during the day and hauling them to our local Junk King San Diego warehouse. Once there, we sort through everything to determine which items can either be reused and possibly donated, and what can be effectively recycled.

Most junk items, believe it or not, are easily recycled. 

Junk pieces like old furniture for example, are often made with large quantities of wood, which can be repurposed. Old appliances contain large amounts of metal, glass, plastics, and other materials that can all be recycled. The list of recyclable materials goes on and on. 

And, if any of your junk items are still usable and in good condition, Junk King San Diego will make sure they end up at a local donation center.

Graduation in San Diego: A University Move Out Means Furniture Removal

junk king san diego helping with furniture and junk removal at san diego school

There are probably two favorite times of the year for college and university students. 

Sure, winter holiday and Spring Break are up there, but not quite at the top of the list. No, for most students, the top two most anticipated times of the school year are summer vacation and, for some, graduation.

And for those who are going home for the summer or leaving school for the last time, it can also mean a bit of old furniture disposal and hauling out all their unwanted junk from school.

Managing a Furniture Move Out Without a Truck

Yeah. Good luck with that.

Sure, some students got by with a few pieces of DIY furniture made with plastic veneer and hollow-core panels from a European-style furniture store. And some of those pieces are now probably destined for the dumpster. 

But many others have some old, but sturdy pieces that they have no real intention of keeping and really can’t leave behind. That could be anything from beds and dressers to desks, chairs, and bookcases. And these can often be solid, but heavy, furniture pieces that no one really wants to haul downstairs or out to the curb themselves. 

The question then, who is going to do all the moving, loading, and hauling of the old furniture and boxes of things like unwanted clothes, books, shoes, and other junk items?

Because, like we know at Junk King San Diego, without a truck this can be a problem.

So, what’s a graduate to do?

Leaving the San Diego University Scene

The San Diego area is home to several universities and many colleges, both public and private. In fact, there are well over two dozen of these institutions in and around San Diego.

These include San Diego State University, University of California San Diego, California State University San Marcos, Point Loma Nazarene University, and John Paul the Great Catholic University.

And that’s just the Universities!

The colleges found in the San Diego area are quite numerous as well, with schools such as:

  • giesel library uc san diegoPlatt College San Diego
  • San Diego Christian College
  • MiraCosta College
  • Cuyamaca College
  • San Diego Miramar College
  • Grossmont College
  • San Diego Mesa College
  • California College San Diego

In fact, according to the website CollegeSimply.com,

“There are 12 four year colleges within the San Diego city limits and 17 four year colleges within a 50 mile radius”

And the combined enrollment of the top five universities and colleges by numbers of students attending was more than 92,370 during the last academic year. This means that there are tens of thousands of students going home each summer, and thousands of others graduating and leaving campus for the last time.

This also means that there are thousands of university move outs and cleanouts that will take place – many without the proper vehicles and means of doing them easily.

 

Junk King is Top of Their Class for University Move-Outs and Furniture Removal

Convenience is a great thing.

And having a reliable and professional junk hauling firm like Junk King San Diego means having exactly that: the convenience of letting us do all the heavy lifting! And, while that is a good reason to hire us for your furniture removal needs or getting your junk from school, there’s a couple of other great reasons for calling Junk King, as well.

Everyone claims to have the best prices. But the world of junk removal services is full of firms that charge their customers by how heavy their junk loads are or with a flat fee that doesn’t take into account how much junk is actually being removed.

And then there are the “hidden” fees – additional charges that are never clearly disclosed up front.

Junk King San Diego doesn’t operate that way. When it comes to junk removal fees we believe in and practice fair and transparent pricing. In fact, we encourage our customers to obtain a free estimate from us before they ever “pull the trigger” on hiring us for their junk removal job.

And we guarantee to beat any other written estimate, which means you can trust that we’ll do what we say we’ll do when it comes to pricing. 

When it comes to getting a free estimate, we work hard to make it as convenient for you as possible. In fact, we provide four different ways to get an estimate from us:

ON-SITE PRICING is the best and most accurate way for us to assess the job and offer you the lowest price is free, no-obligation on-site estimate.

At Junk King San Diego, being green is more than a corporate slogan – it’s what we do. At the heart of our company mission is the goal of recycling at least 60 percent of everything we pick up. Regardless of whether that’s old furniture from a university dorm room or frat house, or anything else we pick up, the overriding goal is recycling.

The Certainty Of Junk Removal In San Diego

junk removal services in san diego ca

“Tis impossible to be sure of anything but Death and Taxes.”
– Christopher Bullock, English actor and dramatist, in The Cobler of Preston, 1716

And we would add to that quote: “and Junk.” Because as anyone who has had a place of their own for any length of time knows that junk seems to accumulate, no matter how hard you try to keep it at bay.

And, by the way, that quote was later appropriated by Benjamin Franklin and his slightly altered version became famous,

“Our new Constitution is now established, and has an appearance that promises permanency; but in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” 

The source is a letter that was written in French from Franklin to French scientist Jean-Baptiste Leroy in 1789.

Dealing with Junk and Junk Removal

For many of us, most of the time, junk is represented by collections of smaller items and things that we haven’t taken the time to get rid of or throw away. Sometimes it is the result of months or even years of collecting certain things, or just holding on to them, only to find that they are only taking up space and we no longer want them. 

And that’s the easy junk removal

In other words, unless those things are too large to fit in the household trash, then it’s usually a simple matter of throwing them away. But what if they don’t fit? And what if they don’t fit in the large residential trash bins that get picked up at the curb every week or two? 

That’s when you need another junk removal option. And that’s when you should think about calling Junk King San Diego.

Depending on the type of “junk” items you have, you might be able to sell them in a yard sale or online through one of the various shopping sites such as eBay, Facebook Marketplace, and Craigslist, along with dozens of others. But that takes some time and effort and no guarantee that you’ll find a buyer.

And you may have to deliver it or ship it. Not exactly convenient.

Donating is always a great alternative to dumping, especially for those unwanted items that are in good condition, usable, and still in working order. All types of excess belongings can find a new home and grateful recipient. And, while we wholeheartedly advocate donating, it can also require some time and effort on your part.

Not to mention hauling the things to the donation center

So, if you can’t sell it or donate it, or you don’t want to take the time to do so, what do you do with all that junk you still need to dispose of?

Junk Can Come from Unexpected Sources

Sometimes we do things or go through things in life that result in some accumulated junk. We know that might sound a bit odd but think about it: whenever you decide to upgrade something or get new things, you invariably end up with the old things still hanging around. 

For example, let’s say you’ve decided to buy some new furniture. That’s exciting. And the great feeling you get when your living room no longer looks like a room at a frat house is priceless. But it’s likely that you now have an old couch or sofa, maybe a recliner or two, and possibly a beat-up coffee table all looking for a new home.

Or frat house.

Perhaps you’ve set your sights even higher and you’re finally going to update your home. New furnishings, a kitchen cabinet facelift, some bathroom remodels, and maybe even a new roof or new carpet. You saved for a few years, held onto your stimulus checks, and maybe won the lottery. However you did it, you’ve given your home a much-needed makeover.

And now you have LOTS of junk to get rid of

It’s spring now and summer is coming sooner than you think. And, while winters in San Diego are a dream for most people in terms of weather, maybe you’re still way behind in getting rid of your winter stuff. And that could be all sorts of things like the Halloween and Christmas decorations that have seen their last holiday. Or the kids summer clothes that suddenly got too small over the winter. 

Oh, and that old saw about how it never rains in Southern California? Yeah, right.

Some of the outdoor furniture and decorations you left out all winter didn’t do so well this time and need to be tossed. Along with that decades-old storage shed that leans a bit now and leaks all the time. 

One thing you can be certain of, you probably aren’t going to get all that junk into the back of the family car. And you probably wouldn’t want to even if you could. Nor do you likely relish the idea of a family trip to the local landfill or waste transfer station. 

Right. There’s got to be an easier way…

 

Spring Cleaning Guide

 

Why Most Junk Removal is Certainly Not a DIY Endeavor

Many homeowners are into taking on “doing it yourself” projects, which is a commendable thing. However, too often they are also thinking that their DIY efforts should also include residential junk hauling. But the reality is that loading, hauling, and disposing of your own junk, debris, and excess garbage can be time-consuming and labor-intensive.

And, ultimately, you can be certain that a DIY option is not very cost-effective. In fact, it doesn’t always pay to “do it yourself.”

First of all, you’re going to need a truck. If you don’t own one, it’s certainly possible that you have a friend with a truck. Otherwise, you’re looking at renting one. That alone is a good reason not to do your own junk hauling. But then, you still have to do all the heavy lifting, moving, loading, and securing your load.

Once that’s all done you’ve still got to do the driving, the unloading, and then drive back. Oh, and you have to pay the tipping fee or a gate fee that is paid by anyone who disposes of waste in a landfill. And this fee is usually based on the weight of waste per ton. More good reasons not to do it yourself.

Depending on the size or quantity of your junk load, this is the type of work best left to a professional junk removal company like Junk King San Diego. In other words, just because you can doesn’t mean you should.

As a homeowner or a renter, you have limited time and limited resources. And, like anyone else, your time is also valuable. Ideally, you should consider your budget since household junk, yard waste, or bulk trash removal involves some costs. And the truth is, it really can be more cost-effective to leave these tasks to a local professional firm.

And, while we’re on the topic, keep in mind that junk removal is not always an easy task. Also, in San Diego County, there are certain restrictions on what can and cannot be disposed of at our local landfills. Cleaning, loading, covering up, hauling, unloading, cleaning again… residential junk hauling requires a great deal of work.

Making Furniture Removal Easier Here In San Diego

furniture pickup in san diego before and after

Moving furniture isn’t always easy.

In fact, some pieces of furniture are almost impossible to move for just one person. If you think that’s an exaggeration, just ask the poor guy whose wife or girlfriend has him rearranging the furniture for her. 

And as if moving furniture from one spot to another, or from one room to another, wasn’t hard enough, try moving it out of your house or apartment and out to a truck. And then try to get it in the back of the truck. But when it’s time for old furniture removal that’s what must be done.

It might be easy for someone like Dwayne Johnson but, for the rest of us? We’d rather stand out of the way and supervise! 

Seriously, though, for those who are older or have some type of physical limitations, lifting and moving large furniture yourself isn’t really practical. Never mind moving old furniture out of the house and into the back of a truck.

But one of the realities of life in San Diego is that we need to get rid of furniture every once in a while. And, with over 1,400,000 people living in the city, you have to imagine that there’s a lot of furniture being hauled off and disposed of every day.

This is why Junk King San Diego specializes in furniture removal.

Dude! Where’s My Furniture?

Okay, so you’ll probably never say that in real life, but there are many folks in the city of San Diego who would like to see their old furniture disappear. This is why so many of us choose to eventually replace our living room, dining room, or bedroom pieces periodically. That way we can get rid of those old, broken-down pieces.

But that’s not always easy. 

Unless the retailer for your new items offers to take away the old ones, the old furniture removal task is on you. And if you can’t sell them and they’re not in good enough shape to even donate them, you’ve still got to find a way to get rid of them. For most people, their first thought is to take them to the dump. 

But what does that involve?

First, before you try to figure out how you’ll get them out of the house, you will need a suitable vehicle to transport them with. The family Prius might be green and economical, but it can’t hold a dining room table!

Not to mention all the kitchen chairs, the recliner, or the sofa. In fact, most pieces of furniture take up a lot of room in a vehicle. Which simply means you’ll need a truck or at least a large cargo van. And, if you don’t own one or can’t borrow one, then you’ll have to rent one. 

But you must get the furniture out of your house or apartment first. And this can be especially challenging if you have stairs, which are quite common in San Diego.

By the way, you can’t just leave your old furniture items out on the curb, as tempting as that might be. In fact, it’s illegal and bad karma to just dump your old couch somewhere. Even if you put a sign on it that reads: “FREE”

And, if you do get your hands on a truck or large cargo van, then you have to haul it to a waste transfer station someplace. Taking it directly to a local landfill is not only one of the worst options you can choose, but it’s not that easy. For starters, there are only six landfills in San Diego County for almost 3,284,000 people. That’s an average of just one landfill for 547,000 people each.

So, the line might be a bit long… 

The good news is that there’s a far easier option for furniture removal: just call Junk King San Diego.

Furniture Removal for San Diego: Making it Easy for You

We’ve all seen it: the abandoned couch or recliner sitting in an empty lot or on the side of a back road somewhere. Unfortunately, there are people who sometimes simply dump them in front of a thrift store, possibly thinking they’re doing a good thing. 

And, while it’s illegal if it’s not reported when it occurs, nothing happens. The truth is, too, that no one wants to have old, broken-down furniture, appliances, or torn mattresses dumped in their own neighborhood, either. 

In fact, according to some studies, having garbage, junk, debris, and abandoned furniture piling up in a neighborhood can diminish the overall quality and safety of that residential area and even be a contributing factor to a rise in crime. 

So, if you have old furniture that needs to be removed and disposed of, and you are considering renting a truck to make that happen, you still have to take it somewhere. While you can probably dump your old furniture pieces at a transfer station or even directly into an actual landfill, that’s still not the best option.

A far better solution, assuming it isn’t reusable or can’t be repurposed, is to have your unwanted, old furniture recycled. And Junk King San Diego is just the firm to do that for you!

Is “Green” Furniture Removal and Disposal Possible?

In a word: Yes!

Many other junk removal companies simply take everything to the nearest landfill. That may be quicker and seem to be efficient, that’s how we do it at Junk King San Diego.

Green furniture removal and disposal means we recycle as much of everything as possible.

At Junk King San Diego, being green is what we do, not just what we say. Recycling at least 60 percent of everything we pick up is at the heart of our company mission. 

This applies to old furniture as well as everything else we pick up. Our junk disposal process involves taking the junk and unwanted furniture that we pick up during the day and transporting it to our local Junk King warehouse.

Once there, it is sorted through to determine which of the items can either be reused, repurposed, or at least recycled.

Most furniture, especially older pieces, is made with large quantities of wood, which can be recycled. In addition, there are often metal, glass, plastics, and other materials that can be reused. For those furniture items that are in good condition and are still usable, Junk King San Diego will get them to a local donation center.

When it comes to furniture, many of the materials used in its construction are easily recycled such as plastics and most wood. 

At Junk King, it has always been our company’s mission to recycle as much of your waste and junk items as possible since the company was founded in 2005. We have always done this, and we continue to work to protect the planet and provide a sustainable alternative to landfills. And when you call Junk King for your junk removal, you’re contributing to a greener alternative, as well.

Spring Cleaning Is Near And Time For Residential Junk Removal In San Diego

residential junk removal for spring cleaning in mira mesa*

This year brings a few more good reasons for spring cleaning: a whole year of COVID-19 behind us and a hot real estate market if you are looking to sell your home.

And spring cleaning often means getting rid of things, which also means a need for residential junk removal. The good news is that, if you are a renter or a homeowner in San Diego, we’ve got you covered.

In fact, Junk King San Diego specializes in all types of residential junk removal services.

 

Ready To Book? Click & Save $20!

 

Why a Residential Junk Removal Service?

Because getting rid of all the unwanted junk from your home isn’t always easy.

And spring cleaning can result in huge piles of junk that you have to dispose of somehow – especially if it’s too much for your regular trash or recycling bins.

But don’t feel bad – if that’s you, you’re not alone. In fact, renters, homeowners, and others throughout San Diego find themselves with piles and stacks of unwanted spring cleaning items they need to get rid of.

And they all have the same question: “What’s the best way to do that?”

We’re glad you asked!  The good news is that Junk King San Diego can take just about every type of residential junk item you can think of – even the junk you don’t even know you have yet!

Our professional and courteous team can come to your home and haul away old furniture, mattresses, toys, and other household items quickly and safely. Our innovative “No Contact Junk Removal” means we can still take just about everything and anything you need to get rid of (except for hazardous waste.)

What kinds of things show up after a good spring cleaning?

It can be old household items such as: 

Or even junk items like old appliances, TVs, hot tubs, lawnmowers, broken-down sheds, yard waste, or even just excessively large amounts of trash and garbage.

You got it? We can take it.

Old furniture can be especially difficult to move and dispose of, for example. Most furniture pieces are heavy, bulky, and generally awkward to carry. And when you finally get them out to the curb you still have to figure out what to do with them.

Most people tend to think in terms of garbage dumps or landfills. And, unfortunately, this is exactly where most household trash and junk items end up, including old furniture.

But when you call Junk King San Diego to haul off your old furniture items, you’ll also be helping the environment because we work to reuse or recycle as much of your old furniture as possible. That’s because we work hard to recover waste materials and reduce landfill use.

Spring Cleaning in Spring Valley?

As we noted previously, people are constantly relocating and, in fact, the Census Bureau estimates that almost 13 percent of renters move each year.

But the problem is that none of those vacated properties can be leased again until any junk that was left behind has been removed and the property is cleaned. And, as a property manager or landlord, you know that each day a rental property sits unoccupied is a day that goes by with no rental income.

Are you a property manager or landlord who needs to get rid of junk left by the previous tenants in one of your rental units?

There’s nothing more frustrating than having to conduct a property cleanout of someone else’s stuff, especially when it’s an entire house, apartment, or office that is full of junk. Before you can hire a professional company to clean the building, all the junk and trash has to be cleaned out and removed.

Property management is much easier if you have a quick and affordable junk removal service standing by to help you out. The good news is that Junk King San Diego is your “go-to” partner for property cleanouts for homes, apartments, and other rental properties!

We know that renters and homeowners often need residential junk removal services more often than just once a year after a spring cleaning, too. Especially larger households that tend to accumulate – and get rid of – things more rapidly or more frequently.

And it’s those households that also lack the time and resources to take care of the cleanout and junk removal, hauling, and disposal themselves.

This is why leaving those tasks to a dedicated and professional residential junk removal service is a huge benefit to you – the benefit that you get with Junk King San Diego. 

And remember, we can handle most any and every kind of junk. (except hazardous waste.)

 

Spring Cleaning, Junk Removal, and Being Eco-Friendly

What many homeowners and others often don’t realize is that most of what they consider their “junk” doesn’t have to end up in a landfill and is actually composed of mostly recyclable materials.

While much of your spring cleaning debris may be too big to put into your residential recycling bin, that doesn’t mean it can’t be reused or recycled.

So, what do you do with it then?

That’s a good question and the good answer is to simply call on Junk King San Diego. We understand that proper recycling of large junk items is especially challenging for homeowners and other residents in San Diego. And that’s why we have always been committed to disposing of your unwanted residential junk with proper recycling and disposal methods.

In fact, our company’s mission is to reuse or recycle as much as possible. 

If your spring cleaning leaves you with unwanted but working appliances or furniture items that are in good condition, for example, we will work to find a new home for them using our relationships with local organizations.

At Junk King San Diego we believe that using our local landfills for junk is a last resort.

That’s why our company’s process for residential junk disposal starts with reusing, recycling, and repurposing as much material as possible. In fact, we manage to recycle up to 60 percent of everything we bring in.

So, for a local, professional, and eco-friendly residential junk removal service, Junk King San Diego is your best choice.

Spring Cleaning, Junk Removal, and Getting Fair Pricing

One of the hallmarks of Junk King is our efforts to keep our prices better than any other licensed, insured, eco-friendly, and recycling-based junk removal company in our area.

And one of the ways we can do this is the way we charge our customers for junk removal.

It’s common in our industry for junk hauling firms to charge by weight. The heavier the load, the higher the fee. And this is a disadvantage for customers who have especially heavy junk items like large furniture items. But that’s not how it’s done at Junk King San Diego

We only charge by the amount of space your junk takes up in our trucks, which means savings for you. Regardless of how heavy your spring cleaning junk is – or how light – you only pay for the volume, not the weight. 

That’s one of the many ways we serve you at Junk King San Diego – with simple, fair, and transparent pricing.

We invite you to make use of our online pricing estimator to get a free estimate on your own. Simply click on the “Pricing” tab on the menu above, scroll down to “Pricing Estimator”, then click on the green “Launching Pricing Estimator” button.

Getting Help with Construction Debris Removal In San Diego

construction debris removal services in san diego

Contractors, builders, and even smaller “handyman” operations in San Diego need construction debris removal at some point. Some more often than others. And it’s the part of the job no one likes nor wants to do.

Fortunately, Junk King San Diego is here to help with our professional construction debris removal service.

Does Your Firm Need Construction Debris Removal?

If your business involves construction (or demolition) of pretty much any kind – from a residential bathroom remodel to a multi-million dollar project – it produces construction waste. 

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) measures the generation of C&D (construction and demolition) waste or debris in the United States. This C&D debris is the waste material produced from construction, renovation, and demolition activities for buildings, roads, and bridges.

How much of this type of waste do we generate?

According to the EPA, an estimated 600 million tons of C&D debris were generated in the United States in 2018, which is more than twice the amount of municipal solid waste (MSW) generated.

And there’s a good reason for that. 

As a state, for example, we generate a great deal of this construction debris:

“According to CalRecycle’s 2014 Disposal Facility-Based Characterization of Solid Waste in California, construction and demolition (C&D) materials are estimated to account for between 21.7 to 25.5 percent of California’s waste disposal.”

And someone has to remove all that debris from job sites and dispose of it properly. This is why Junk King San Diego specializes in construction debris removal – so you don’t have to!

Who Wants to Do Construction Debris Removal?

Perhaps one of the most bothersome tasks for building contractors is getting rid of construction debris. Clean up and disposal is labor-intensive, time-consuming, costly, and takes away from production time.

Not only do you have to take your workers off their jobs so they can clean up and haul off construction debris and trash, but there are also the extra fuel costs, the added mileage on the company vehicles (along with more wear and tear), and the various disposal fees each trip.

Another sobering reality of construction debris removal is that it also requires taking it to someplace suitable to dispose of it.

In addition, while a small residential job might only need cleanup and disposal once at the end of the project, for most larger projects that last weeks or months, site clean up and debris disposal can be a regular task that must be done every week or even multiple times throughout the week.

Construction site debris cleanup and removal is something that has to be done, but no one really wants to do it.

As a result, the typical approach is usually a haphazard one and often put off until it can’t be ignored. And this can be dangerous as all the debris, waste, and trash littering a construction site is also a safety hazard.

However, by taking a few simple, proactive steps, your entire construction debris disposal process can be streamlined and improved. 

Free Construction Debris Removal Guide

A Green Construction Debris Removal: Reducing the Waste

Yes, you can minimize the piles of construction debris on your project site. However, while this approach does make clean up and disposal of construction debris more efficient, there needs to be an organized process for it.

With that in mind, we’ve put together these three easy and strategic tips to help optimize your construction debris disposal process:

Use Dedicated Debris Containers

Contractors and their subcontractors too often overlook the efficiency of small debris dumpsters for staging building material debris and waste. In addition to the safety aspect of keeping cut-offs and other debris littering a site, designated containers allow recyclable materials to be separated from hazardous materials.

Schedule Regular Clean Ups Using Designated Workers

Creating a “Cleanup” plan and a schedule as part of your construction process is an efficient approach for disposing of site debris. Having the same members of your crew tasked with regular clean-up at set times can also ensure that consistent and quicker clean-up takes place, as well. The plan and schedule should include your subcontractors at every phase of the project.

Contract a Professional Firm for Construction Debris Removal

Outsourcing the loading, hauling, and disposal of your construction debris is one of the best ways to minimize your own costs for wages, fuel, fees, and time lost in production. While it might seem to be somewhat counterintuitive to pay someone else to haul your trash, you can actually be spending far less and doing far more by outsourcing this work.

Along with these tactics, an effective alternative approach to demolition is to engage in planned “deconstruction.” 

This approach is used for existing structures that must be demolished or partially dismantled prior to new construction work being done. The result is far less debris to be disposed of and provides substantial amounts of usable building materials that can be recycled, repurposed, and reused.

While not a new or novel approach to demolition, it is not always a familiar one for many contractors. To help make the process easier, we’ve created this brief checklist and guide:

When it comes to construction debris (and all junk!) at Junk King San Diego we believe that landfills are a last resort.

That’s why our standard method of disposal starts with recycling, reusing, and repurposing as much material as possible, up to 60 percent of it, in fact. 

Which is our way of demonstrating that “Being Green” isn’t just a marketing slogan for us.

In fact, when Junk King was founded in 2005, we were the first recycling-based junk removal service in the United States. And at Junk King San Diego we have continued to recycle, repurpose, and reuse as much as possible of everything that we pick up at every location.

junk removal service recycling

More Than Green Construction Debris Removal: We’ve Got Great Pricing, Too!

At Junk King San Diego, we work hard to keep our prices better than any other licensed and insured, eco-friendly, recycling-based junk removal company in the area. And our fair and transparent pricing policy sets us apart from the others, as well. 

Many junk hauling firms charge by weight and that’s a disadvantage for customers with particularly heavy junk items such as concrete rubble and other construction debris.

That’s not how we do it at Junk King San Diego.

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

In addition, we provide several ways for you to have a free estimate of your construction debris removal junk removal job. And we also guarantee to beat any written estimate.

You can use our simple online pricing estimator that lets you get an estimate on your own by simply adding up the amount of debris you have to dispose of. And our expert construction debris removal team will give you a final price once they’re on site.

The Go-To Furniture Removal & Couch Disposal Service in San Diego

san diego couch and furniture removal services

Imagine you’re driving along Hwy 52 between San Diego and Santee. At some point you glance over and notice an old, tattered couch sitting abandoned in a field. Not all that unusual perhaps, but it’s a sad picture of one of the ways not to do couch disposal.

In fact, as you probably already know, dumping your old furniture – including unwanted couches and sofas – is not only unsightly littering, but is illegal, too. It certainly is in San Diego.

So, what’s a person supposed to do with their old furniture like couches or recliners?

A simple call to Junk King San Diego is a great place to start.

Sofas and Couches and Chairs – Oh My!

In the course of life, we all tend to accumulate things and belongings. Among all the things that we collect through the years, furniture items are usually the largest. Unfortunately, much of our furniture doesn’t outlast us and, in fact, many pieces become worn and damaged after only a few years. 

So, what do we do? 

Usually, we buy new furniture to replace the old stuff. Which is fine except that we then have to figure out what to do with the old pieces. Sometimes they are still usable and can be improved with a bit of cleaning, patching, or painting. Other pieces, however, are beyond saving and simply need to be disposed of. 

But furniture removal can be a challenge, especially when it comes to couch disposal. 

If you’ve ever tried to lift a couch by yourself, you know how awkward it can be to move one around. Which means that, for starters, you’re going to need some help when it comes time to actually lift your old couch and carry it out of your house or apartment. 

Once you’ve done that, assuming you can, you still have to have a vehicle that can accommodate a couch. Take it from us – it’s probably not going to fit into a Prius! 

Exactly how big are couches?

According to an article at Dimensions.com the size of couches can vary, of course.

“Although couches can vary in size, the standard range is between 72”-96” (183-244 cm) for a three-seat sofa and 48”-72” (121-183 cm) for a loveseat. Ultimately, 84” (213 cm) is considered the typical length of a couch.”

So, if your old couch or sofa is a typical sized piece, then it is about seven feet long and close to three feet deep, or wide. That’s even too long to fit into a standard pickup truck bed with the tailgate closed. Of course, if you’ve tried this before then you already know all this. Which means you also know that loading and hauling a couch is a bear!

When it comes to furniture removal, you’re possibly looking at dining room tables, old chairs, and maybe even a credenza.These can all be large and heavy. In fact, most all furniture removal is difficult, labor-intensive, and requires a large vehicle if you want to do it yourself.

A Better Alternative for Furniture Removal and Couch Disposal

Here’s a thought: why not have someone else take care of your old furniture or couch disposal for you?

No, not your brother-in-law with the big 4X4 truck. While he might be willing, it’s quite likely you’ll still be doing most of the heavy lifting. And even if you do work it out and can borrow a large enough vehicle for hauling a couch or other old furniture, what are you going to do with it?

For most people, the first response is something like, “Take it to the dump.”  Well, for starters, the Miramar Landfill is the City of San Diego’s only active landfill. Depending on where you live, this can be a bit of a haul. And it will cost you. 

In addition, when it comes to most sofas, couches, recliners, and padded office chairs, there can be disposal problems because of the materials in the cushions. These are usually difficult to recycle since the materials are often toxic.

You could, of course, try donating or selling your furniture items if you feel they are in good shape and still usable. But unless your recipient agrees to come and pick up the couch or other furniture item, you may still have the problem of transporting your donation or “For Sale” item yourself.

And if it is simply only good for the dump, you still have to figure out how to get it there.

The good news is that the expert removal and disposal teams at Junk king San Diego have a long and reliable track record of removing and disposing of furniture like couches. In fact, you might say that we are known for it.

A better option is to choose the professional route and hire a furniture removal firm, like the folks at Junk King San Diego. With a professional team working for you, you can know that the job will be done quickly, efficiently, and competently. And you won’t have to deal with the landfill dumping fees or wait in line at the landfill. 

Not to mention that we do all the work!

We also make sure that appropriate items are either recycled or repurposed. This way you can still have the satisfaction of helping the environment, but without having to deal with figuring out where to take which furniture items, and so forth.

With our competent and well-trained team, we will ensure that every item that can and should be recycled is taken care of accordingly.

Got Business Furniture? We Take That, Too! 

Businesses need to get rid of old furniture for several reasons including relocating and expanding space. 

A big move often involves the acquisition of new furniture for the new surroundings, which often means old furniture that must be disposed of now. Although this typically consists of office chairs, file cabinets, and maybe even desks, it can also include couches and sofas. And the larger the business, the larger the volume of old furniture. 

You could, of course, have some of your own staff take time to load the old furniture in either a company vehicle or rented truck. This may seem like an economical approach until you realize that every hour your employees spend doing the work of removal and hauling professionals, they are not doing the work you hired them to do.

That “opportunity cost” means their time is actually far more expensive for your business than the cost of outsourcing the work would be.

Which is simply another way of saying, “Call Junk King San Diego!”

We can show up at your office or place of business and quickly, safely, and efficiently remove all your old, unwanted furniture items. Not only do we make it a painless and cost-effective decision, but we also make sure your old office furniture is properly disposed of, whether that means repurposing items or simply ensuring that they are properly recycled.

Did We Mention That Our Furniture Removal and Couch Disposal is Green?

The good news is that most furniture really can be recycled most of the time. And, at Junk King San Diego, recycling is a major part of what we do.

Here are a few good reasons for recycling your furniture and the benefits of it:

  • Conserves limited natural resources
  • Conserves up to 95% of the freshwater used to process many materials
  • Keeps waste materials from out of the oceans
  • Preserves forests which help to reduce CO2 emissions
  • Reduces the use of fossil fuel energy

It could be that your company is finding that it needs to downsize, which involves getting rid of some furniture. Or maybe you simply have to replace some of your office’s furniture items like the old couch. Whatever the reason and whatever the piece, recycling these pieces is a great choice.

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.
