Junk Removal in San Francisco
Items We Take for Residential Junk Removal
If you live in San Francisco, you know that getting rid of junk from your home is not an easy task. And it’s not just you! Homeowners, renters, and others throughout the city all find themselves with unwanted junk items they need to get rid of.
But how do you do that here? Not to worry – at Junk King San Francisco, we’ve got the solution!
We take almost every type of residential junk item you can think of – including the junk you need to dispose of today. Just give Junk King San Francisco a call and we will come to your home and haul away old furniture, broken toys, and other unwanted household items. Large or small, we take just about everything and anything you need to dispose of (except for hazardous waste.)
Wondering what those kinds of things might be? Here’s a few:
Americans have been getting rid of old and broken TV sets since the end of WWII. And, with the introduction of large flat screen TVs, millions of Americans buy newer, bigger screens every year. But they replace them far more often than they did 20 or 30 years ago. In fact, the average household in the U.S. replaces their television almost every 7 years.
But television sets require special handling for disposal so how do you get rid of your old television that either doesn’t work or you no longer want?
An easy solution is to call Junk King San Francisco. You can also call us for your old computer monitors, as well as old CRT televisions and large flat screen units. Junk King provides an easy, safe, and eco-friendly old TV disposal service to make the whole process easy for you.
Trying to get rid of an old appliance can be a burden. Literally. Most large household appliances can weigh hundreds of pounds and are so large that they are difficult to move safely, even if you can move them.
And most large appliances that you might think have to go to a landfill can actually be recycled.
Seriously! Your old household appliances are almost always made of recyclable materials like steel, aluminum, glass, and plastics. That means, when you call Junk King San Francisco, we see to it that as many of your appliances as possible are recycled. That includes refrigerators, ovens and even air conditioning units!
What other types of appliances can we remove for you? Here’s a short list of items we can take:
- Air Conditioners
- Dishwashers/Trash Compactors
- Water Heaters
- Washing Machines/Dryers
Furniture Removal and Disposal
If you’re moving, for example, it can be difficult to get rid of old furniture you don’t want to take with you. That’s because, like appliances, most furniture pieces are heavy, bulky, and generally hard to move.
And if you finally get them out of your house you still must figure out what to do with them.
We understand, which is why we recommend calling Junk King San Francisco to haul off your old furniture. Best of all, you’ll be helping the environment since we work hard to recycle your old furniture.
Here are some examples of the furniture we can pick up from you:
Yard Waste Removal
Sure, not everyone in San Francisco has a yard, but there are millions who do. And cleaning up yard waste often means much more than just grass and leaf removal. Yard waste can also include everything else you’ve cut, pruned, trimmed, or dug up out of your yard.
If your yard cleanup is a large project, you may end up with far more waste and debris than your green residential waste bin can hold.
Yard waste removal is seasonal with spring clean up after the winter weather, and then spring and summer when you are likely to have piles of empty bags, old planters, and even broken lawn furniture. That last one can include getting rid of things that have been left outdoors and are no longer usable.
Hauling and disposing of your yard waste can be time consuming and burdensome, but a call to Junk King San Francisco can make it quick, simple, and easy.
If you need trash removal more often than once a week, or you have bulk trash items your waste management company won’t pick up, what do you do?
Junk King San Francisco can help with our convenient and environmentally friendly trash removal service that makes large trash removal easy for you. Our experienced teams can 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.
Refrigerator Disposal & Recycling
Refrigerators don’t last forever. And, when they do die or are getting close to doing so, you’ll need to replace it. But what do you do with the old fridge? The fact is, refrigerator disposal is a difficult task for anyone since they are the heaviest types of appliances.
In addition, refrigerators must be disposed of in a proper manner to prevent the release of chemicals that are harmful to the environment.
No worries! Junk King San Francisco can make the old refrigerator disposal process easy for you. We have the experience, knowledge, and resources to ensure that your old refrigerator is quickly and easily removed from your home and properly disposed of.
That means we maintain compliance with California law and make sure your old refrigerator is disposed of at a proper recycling facility to prevent potential harm to our ecosystem.
Whether we realize it or not, all of us have some form of E-Waste, or electronic waste, in our homes. Our old gadgets and devices eventually end up being unused and collecting dust on a shelf or tossed into a drawer.
The problem gets bigger with larger electronics. The good news is that Junk King San Francisco’s E-Waste removal service means you don’t need to worry about the proper disposal of those old electronic items. That means we make sure your old electronics end up in the right place.
That could be a non-profit organization for electronics that are still functioning, or a recycling facility for those that aren’t.
We haul away all types of e-waste, including:
- Copy Machines
In addition to all these items, we also offer other residential junk removal services such as:
- Estate Cleanouts
- Hot Tub Disposal
- Mattress Disposal
- Renovation/Remodeling Debris Removal
- Garbage Removal
San Francisco’s Best Commercial Junk Removal
Commercial Junk Removal and the Items We Take
If you’re working at a business location, you’ve probably had the frustration of discovering that your waste management company won’t take all your commercial junk items.
While it’s true that some waste management providers will allow for a special pick up, this usually means additional fees. And, if your large commercial junk removal needs are frequent, that’s not practical.
For most commercial junk disposal, there are really only two other options for getting rid of large junk or debris: You do it yourself, or you hire someone to do it.
But keep in mind that dumping your own junk may not save 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.
Not to worry! Junk King San Francisco specializes in providing efficient and cost-effective commercial junk removal services.
Here’s an overview of some of the items we take:
Commercial Equipment Removal
Do you have old equipment that you can’t sell or give away? Is it taking up storage space on your property? The efficient and cost-effective move would be to have those items removed and disposed of. But how do you make that happen efficiently and cost-effectively?
The optimum solution is to outsource the job to a local and professional junk hauling firm. This will cost you less in the long run, and the sheer size or volume of much business junk means hauling and removing it yourself is a challenge, especially for smaller businesses.
This is why Junk King San Francisco is your Number One solution for outsourcing the work.
Office Furniture Removal
Whether you have decided to upgrade and remodel your offices and furnishings, or you simply need to replace your old office furniture, you still need to get rid of the old pieces that are too damaged to sell or donate.
However, this can be far easier said than done.
Disposing of office furniture can be far more work and trouble than most businesses want to deal with.
Fortunately, when you hire a professional firm like Junk King San Francisco, we do all the heavy lifting and haul it all away for you quickly and efficiently. That’s why choosing a professional and reliable office furniture removal service is smart. Hiring Junk King is also smart because there’s no easy way to get rid of it yourself.
The best part is that, with Junk King San Francisco, we also ensure that old furniture items that are in good condition are either donated or sent to a recycling facility so you know your old furniture will be disposed of in an eco-friendly way.
Construction Debris Removal
Construction contractors and project managers in the city must oversee every phase of a project. However, there is one ongoing task that is often overlooked and that is construction debris removal.
Even though that work doesn’t add to the actual construction – and profit – debris removal that is well-managed and planned for can improve a project’s cost-effectiveness.
A great way to do that is to outsource debris removal to a reputable, professional hauling company like Junk King San Francisco. The good news is that there are real benefits to this approach that far outweigh doing it yourself.
These include the convenience and the peace of mind that comes with knowing the job is done right and done efficiently. And your disposal costs are typically far less than using your own crew and since you won’t be taking them from their jobs and off the job site just to haul debris.
Property Management Cleanouts
People are constantly moving in San Francisco. For example, more than one out of ten renters move each year. For landlords and property managers, this means that their vacated properties likely have junk that must be removed before the property is cleaned and rented again.
We understand how annoying it is to have to clean up someone else’s mess. And this is especially true when it’s an apartment or house that’s just been vacated.
That’s why we have the best solution to make your property management duties a whole lot easier. We can provide you with our quick and affordable junk removal services. So, make Junk King San Francisco your go-to partner for cleaning out homes, apartments, and other rental properties after tenants leave.
Another, specialized type of property cleanout is foreclosed residential properties. These often require that a Realtor® or other real estate professional remove any junk abandoned by former homeowners. In fact, foreclosed properties are often left with trash, old furniture, and other property in them.
There are several reasons why former occupants leave their foreclosed home littered with junk and abandoned belongings when they leave the property. Nonetheless, the task of a foreclosure cleanout falls on the agent or a representative of the bank or finance company that now holds the property.
We know that, as a real estate professional, you need this handled quickly and efficiently. And that is why Junk King is your best choice for a foreclosure clean out.
Junk King San Francisco provides expert real estate junk removal services to take care of the clean out process for you here in the City by the Bay. When you call Junk King for your foreclosure cleanout, that’s a huge task off your to-do list, and a big step towards your property being ready to sell or rent.
Commercial Scrap Metal Pick Up
If your business routinely gets rid of metal items that are too large for your commercial trash bin, you need a better disposal solution. And, if your items are pieces of equipment that no longer work, reselling them is not an option.
But they can be disposed of as commercial scrap metal.
Although many businesses may consider recycling or reselling junk metal, that‘s a difficult task if you don’t know how to go about it or where to take it. In fact, recycling scrap metal is more difficult and dangerous than recycling most other trash items.
Fortunately, you have Junk King San Francisco to pick up and remove your scrap metal for you!
Not only do we pick it up and haul it away quickly and safely, but we also take it to a local recycling facility so that your metal debris is turned into new raw material for manufacturing by using the most environmentally friendly methods available.
We recycle more materials than other junk removal companies and our scrap metal recycling is available for any need, including:
- Construction beams, wire, and most other metal building debris
- Appliances, plumbing fixtures, and other office renovation debris
- Iron, steel, copper, aluminum, and brass scrap items
- Most other unwanted metal junk
Storage Facility Cleanouts
If you own or manage a self-storage unit business, you are part of an almost 40-million-dollar industry in the United States.
Americans have, on average, more personal belongings per person than citizens of any other nation. And that means we need to have a place for all our stuff. Storage facilities provide that.
However, when self-storage unit tenants leave, large amounts of junk are often left behind in the units. The reality behind the storage reality shows is that the storage facility owner or manager is left with the task of clearing out the abandoned units in order to put them back on the market.
If that’s you, then you need to know that Junk King San Francisco can be your answer when you need storage facility junk removal. And we haul it away for one simple price, while making everything fast and stress-free for you.
Junk King San Francisco – How Junk Removal Works
Working with Junk King San Francisco is easy. And we work hard to keep it that way.
We have the well-earned reputation of being Number One for service in our industry. Add to that the fact that we take just about anything and everything that you need to get rid of (except hazardous materials.)
In addition, our long-standing and deep-rooted commitment to being “green” and eco-friendly means that you can be certain we will recycle or repurpose as much of your junk as possible.
At Junk King San Francisco, we can take just about everything that you need to dispose of except for hazardous materials. For our residential customers, the EPA refers to these items as Household Hazardous Wastes, or HHW.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), there are waste materials you may want to dispose of that are classified as Household Hazardous Waste if they meet these criteria:
Keep in mind, too, that other common household waste products, such as old paint, caustic cleaners, oils, batteries, and most pesticides often contain hazardous ingredients and require special care when you dispose of them, especially in California.
All junk removal services are prohibited by law to pick up and dispose of hazardous materials. And these restrictions apply to our commercial clients, as well, when it comes to disposing of industrial hazardous waste.

Junk King – Not Like the Other Guys
When Junk King was founded in 2005 in a garage in San Carlos, it was the first recycling-based junk removal operation in the nation. At that time, no one was doing that. And, today, most of them still aren’t.
At Junk King San Francisco, our junk removal operation continues that tradition and commitment of being “green” and environmentally friendly.
As our trucks serve customers throughout the day picking up junk and other unwanted items, our teams are carefully packing the trucks so that they can unpack those items quickly and efficiently at what we call our warehouse recycling Hub.
Our goal is to be as efficient as possible in our operations while recycling and repurposing as much junk materials as possible, so we can help keep our landfills free of unnecessary junk and waste items.
Valuing Customer Service While Taking Junk Removal to a Greener Level
When our company was founded back in 2005 by two friends in San Carlos, the idea behind Junk King was simple: Always provide great customer service and work hard to recycle far more than any other junk removal company out there.
In the close to twenty years since, Junk King has become the number one rated junk removal and hauling service in North America, and we’ve grown to more than 100 locally owned franchises ranging all across the U.S. and with several locations in Canada, as well.
That growth and reputation are due in large part to the way we approach our business: by serving one customer at a time. Which is just another way of saying that we treat every one of our customers as if they are the most important client we have.
Because they are.
And some of how we do that is by always offering fair and transparent pricing, calling our customers 15 to 30 minutes before we arrive on time at every job, and even sweeping up when we’re done with a job!
So, the bottom line?
Junk removal with Junk King San Francisco is your best option for getting rid of your bulk clutter or large junk items. And working with Junk King San Francisco is easy – you simply make an appointment.
So, are you ready to schedule an appointment? We make that easy, too!
Once you have an estimate simply pick a date and a two-hour window. Our professional and insured junk removal team will show up at your home and call 15 minutes before we arrive. Once there, we’ll give you a free estimate based on how much room your junk takes up in our truck.
You just point and we’ll haul away your unwanted items with no hidden fees.
Areas We Serve at Junk King San Francisco
At Junk King San Francisco we are proud to serve the residents of the City of San Francisco.
This venerable city of more than 880,000 San Franciscans is also the fourth largest city in California.
For the sake of simplicity, we’ve gone with the 10 districts used and defined by our friends at the San Francisco Association of REALTORS®.
Often referred to locally as the Richmond District, it offers a variety of outdoor activities, many interesting historical sites, as well as numerous shops and restaurants. It also bears the reputation as one of the most desirable areas in San Francisco.
Neighborhoods here include Central Richmond, Inner Richmond, Outer Richmond, Seacliff, Jordan Park – Laurel Heights, Lake Mountain, and Lone Mountain.
Golden Gate Heights, which rises above the flats here, is characterized by sweeping views, winding streets, and more upscale homes.
Other neighborhoods include Parkside, Central Sunset, Outer Sunset, Inner Parkside, and Outer Parkside.
You’ll also find several local attractions here such as Lake Merced, the Lake Merced Golf Club, the San Francisco Zoo, and the Olympic Club.
Neighborhoods you may recognize here include Oceanview, Ingleside and Ingleside Heights, Merced Heights and Merced Manor, Pine Lake Park, and Stonestown.
Along with the prestigious communities of Saint Francis Wood, Forrest Hill and Balboa Terrace, neighborhoods here include Ingleside Terrace, Mount Davidson Manor, Westwood Park, Midtown Terrace, Sherwood Forest, Miraloma Park, West Portal, and Monterey Heights.
This district is also a popular destination for both tourists and locals as it is often sunnier than other parts of the city. It is home, too, of the oldest public park in the city, Buena Vista Park. And, of course, there is Twin Peaks, Mission Dolores Park, and Mission Dolores itself.
Other neighborhoods in the Central District are Cole Valley – Parnassus Heights, Buena Vista, Ashbury Heights, Dolores Heights, Clarendon Heights, Duboce Triangle, and Corona Heights.
It was also one of the few neighborhoods to survive San Francisco’s devastating 1906 earthquake. Today, it has some of the finest original Victorian houses in the city. The famous “Painted Ladies,” six gorgeous Victorian homes are located here, perched over Alamo Square Park.
Neighborhoods here are Lower Pacific Heights, North Panhandle, Alamo Square, Hayes Valley, Western Addition, and Anza Vista.
Perhaps some of the best known real estate in the city is in this area. That would include the several parks such as Crissy Field, Fort Mason, and Marina Green, a broad expanse of grass that covers 74 acres and boasts some of the best views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz Island, and Angel Island.
The dignified homes of Pacific Heights and the always fashionable Marina are here, along with just two other neighborhoods, Cow Hollow and Presidio Heights.
For your average tourists there’s Fisherman’s Wharf, Chinatown, Coit Tower, the skyscrapers, cable cars, Union Square, and loads of world-class restaurants. And, for the locals throughout the City of San Francisco, there is the theater district, the San Francisco Opera and Ballet, the Asian Art Museum, and the San Francisco Public Library building.
And, despite all the commerce, cultural centers, and government buildings here, there are still great neighborhoods including Downtown San Francisco, Russian Hill and Telegraph Hill, Nob Hill, North Beach, and the Tenderloin, among others.
This area is the largest district in the city, and the neighborhood of Dogpatch escaped the destruction of the 1906 earthquake and fire. Today it is the location of some of the oldest homes in San Francisco.
Central-east San Francisco neighborhoods include part of the Financial District – Barbary Coast, Mission Bay, South of Market, Central Waterfront – Dogpatch, South Beach, Yerba Buena and Potrero Hill.
Local realtors describe this part as San Francisco:
“Bayview feels like its own city within San Francisco, while Crocker Amazon, Visitacion Valley, and the Excelsior neighborhoods have more of a suburban character.”
Other neighborhoods in Southeast San Francisco are Hunters Point, Bayview Heights, Little Hollywood, Candlestick Point, Silver Terrace, Portola, Mission Terrace and Outer Mission.
