Junk King San Francisco Uses New Mini Dumpster to Help Make Way for a Cleaner and Greener Tomorrow


Dense fog and rolling hills set a scenic and recognizable backdrop to the beautiful city of San Francisco, California. Often referred to as The City by the Bay, San Francisco is known for its cool summers and its iconic landmarks like the Golden Gate Bridge, the former Alcatraz Penitentuary, cable cars and Fisherman’s Wharf.


Originally founded by Spanish Colonists in 1776, this natural harbor was eventually conqured by the United States in 1846. With the Gold Rush of 1849, San Francisco saw rapid growth. Thanks to the Gold Rush, San Francisco became the largest city on the West Coast during that time.

While the great 1906 earthquake and fire destroyed much of the city, San Francisco proved its resiliency and soldiered on through the 20th century to become a center of wealth, military power, progressive culture and high technology.


As one of the largest natural harbors in the country, San Francisco became a necessary fixture in WWII. According to history.com, as WWII transitioned to the Cold War in 1945, the city hosted the conference at which the U.N. Charter was drafted and continued to draw workers to develop technologies for the nuclear age.

San Francisco, which is both a city and a county, is home to a unique blend of intelligence, creativity and innovation. The San Francisco Bay Area is home to 35 colleges, including University of California at San Francisco, the University of California at Berkley and Golden Gate University and boasts a thriving economy.


A Greener Alternative


San Francisco is one of the greenest cities in the world, with a strong focus on recycling and sustainability. A forward-thinking and environmentally-conscious ethos has made the Bay Area the national leader in recycling programs, and we’re pleased to say that we at Junk King San Francisco are inspired by that same mindset.


Despite taking in mostly junk and scrap, we’re able to recycle about 60% of everything we bring into our sorting centers on average, a figure we’re both proud of and always looking to improve. If you’re looking for environmentally-friendly junk removal services, we’re confident we can stand head and shoulders above our competitors in sustainability, customer service, and price.


At Junk King San Francisco, we offer standard full-service junk removal to both homes and businesses. It’s pretty straightforward – just give us a call to set up an appointment and our technicians will head to your location with a big red truck and collect your junk or trash. It’s quick, easy, and convenient.


However, if you’d prefer to do the work yourself or are just hoping to save a little extra money, we also offer self-service MINI dumpster rentals. Everything collected in one of our MINI dumpsters is taken to a recycling warehouse to be sorted carefully, so you can know you’re getting the same green consideration as the full-service junk removal.




San Francisco has long been a city that attracts industry leaders and change makers.  This thriving city is also the headquarters of five major banking institutions, including Wells Fargo, and various other companies such as Levi Strauss & Co., Gap Inc., Dropbox, Reddit, Square, Dolby, Airbnb, Twitter, Pinterest, Yelp, Craigslist, Pacific Gas and Electric Company and many more.

 Cost of living is relatively high when compared to the rest of the country, however, the high levels of education reached by the vast number of degree holding residents makes way for a higher-than-average salary as well.


Green Living in San Francisco


Dumpster Rental San Francisco


San Francisco is credited as having begun the charge to combat climate change in the United States. From its ban on plastic bags in 2007 to its recycling regulations, San Francisco is making changes, not just promises. San Francisco has been named the greenest city in the United States and Canada by a Siemens study.


According to San Francisco’s environmental webpage, the city has been able to reduce its carbon footprint by 28 percent from 1990 to 2015 even though the population increased 19.5 percent and the GDP (gross domestic product) increased 78 percent.


San Francisco, as the leader in environmental concerns, shows that it is possible to make changes despite a growing population.


“The majority of San Francisco’s emissions are from electricity and natural gas used in buildings and fuel used in cars and trucks. The remaining emissions are from the landfilling of organic waste and municipal operations.”


Recycling and Waste Reduction in San Francisco


California leads the way in recycling across the country and “is the undisputed queen of recycling cities in the country, with an 80 percent success rate at keeping discards out of landfills as of 2013,” according to takepart.com.


San Francisco’s strict laws and bans have made recycling and composting mandatory for its residents and is helping the city become a Zero Waste city by its 2020 goal.


San Francisco Landfill Solutions


San Francisco’s lead priority in its green initiatives focuses on increasing its diversion rate from landfills. San Francisco is now leading North America in its recycling and compost rates as it has achieved 80 percent landfill diversion rates.

“Recycling and composting is not only good for our environment, it is also good for our economy,” said Mayor Edwin E. Lee. ”Recycling alone creates 10 times more jobs than simply sending refuse to the landfill, and I applaud Recology, the Department of Environment and San Franciscans for reaching this record milestone of 80 percent diversion.”

How Junk King Fits into San Francisco’s Sustainability Plan


Junk King San Francisco is a company that keeps sustainability and green living as a top priority, making it an ideal match for San Franciscan’s to partner with for their own junk removal services, be it commercial or residential.


All items tossed into a Junk King roll away dumpster are taken to a recycling warehouse where employees take the time to sort each and every dumpster rental collection for metals, e-waste, paper, household goods, textiles, furniture and appliances before simply tossing more trash into the landfills.

But “going green” also means Junk King is able to donate, repurpose, and reuse everything from clothing, toys, baby cribs and strollers to office furniture and supplies.


Many of the Junk King trucks run on biodiesel, a domestically produced fuel made from more environmentally safe non-petroleum, renewable resources and fits into San Francisco’s goal to reduce carbon emissions.

Junk King is committed to continuing to lead the way to help keep the planet clean, green and beautiful for the generations to come. Just as San Francisco is striving for, Junk King is also committed to finding ways to reduce waste and encourage recycling and reuse of any qualifying products.


What is a MINI Dumpster Rental and Why Should You Consider It?


Junk King Dumpster


The process for a dumpster rental from Junk King is pretty simple. Just give us a call to set up an appointment and we’ll drop the MINI dumpster off at your location. You keep it for three days and fill it with all your junk, trash, scrap, yard waste, furniture, and pretty much anything else you can imagine short of toxic waste, and then we’ll come back and pick it up when you’re done.


MINI dumpster rental is a great idea for anyone undergoing a home or business project that generates trash, like renovation, moving, or even just spring cleaning. It’s easy, eco-friendly, and more affordable than getting everything hauled away by professionals. Unlike renting larger industrial dumpsters, small dumpster rental is perfect for personal projects or small businesses looking to save on renovation or cleaning.


Despite being small enough to fit in your driveway, a MINI eco dumpster can handle anything your project might generate, from construction debris to furniture and even old appliances. It also comes with the terrific customer service that Junk King has become known for. We’re rated #1 nationwide in customer service for a reason, and we’re happy to help you out with any questions or concerns that might arise.


What to Know When Renting a MINI Dumpster


As mentioned above, the process of how to rent a MINI trash bin from Junk King San Francisco is simple. We even offer free, no-strings-attached estimates so you know exactly what you’re getting into. All that being said, we know exactly what every homeowner’s first question is going to be: How much does a MINI dumpster cost?


Our pricing structure is one of the things that makes Junk King different from other dumpster rental companies. Rather than forcing you to estimate how much trash your project will generate and pick a size before you start, we just give everyone a dumpster of the same size – about 12 cubic feet, more than enough for any home improvement or cleaning project.


However, instead of charging you a ton of money for such a big dumpster, we only make you pay for the space you actually use. That means if you only fill your MINI dumpster halfway, you don’t have to pay for the full thing. This allows you to know you always have enough space without having to pay extra for peace of mind.


Wondering what size a MINI dumpster is? While it has a capacity of 12 cubic feet, it’s also small enough to fit neatly into your driveway, about 7.5 feet wide by 11 feet long. That’s only about the size of a small car. It also features our specially-designed polycarbonate wheels, so you know you’re not going to leave any scratches or marks on your driveway or the street.


Eco-friendly, affordable, and backed by our top customer service, we think renting a MINI dumpster is the perfect choice for any homeowner, renter, or small business owner with a project to take care of.

What to Consider in a San Francisco Dumpster Rental

San Francisco Dumpster RentalHere’s a question for you, San Francisco: what do home improvement projects and special events in your community have in common? Unless you’re feng shui-ing your property or organizing a march for breatharians, the answer is probably going to be junk. Practically every handyman-or-woman project and public gathering produces waste of some kind, and disposing of that waste is an important part of completing your project successfully. It’s also the best way to stay responsible to the environment and make sure you’re following the law. These are just a few of the reasons why San Francisco dumpster rental is so important.

There are other ways to rid yourself of waste in the San Francisco area, but dumpster rental remains one of the most straightforward and cost-effective. However, that’s not to say that there aren’t certain factors you should consider ahead of time. The more thought you put into your dumpster rental in San Francisco at the front end of the process, the more likely you’ll be to achieve the results you want by the time it’s time to return your container. You’ll have to think about who you want to rent from, how to make the most of the time you and your dumpster spend together, and how to avoid unwanted surprises or complications during the loading process. You’ll also want to make sure that the material you put in your dumpster is safe and doesn’t break any local or state laws.

That might sound like a lot of information to think about before you go ahead and rent your dumpster. Fortunately, Junk King have taken the time to make things a bit easier for you by compiling a good portion of the most essential information in one place. Read on, and learn more about how you can make your dumpster rental in San Francisco a successful experience. With our help, you should be in excellent shape to tackle your next project with a disposal solution you can implement with confidence.

Choosing Your Rental Company for a San Francisco Dumpster Rental

Choosing your rental company is one of the biggest decisions you’ll face when you decide to hire a dumpster in the city of San Francisco. There are several options available, ranging from small local companies to larger operations like Junk King. There will be pros and cons with any company you choose to rent from, but that’s no reason to assume your experience will be comparable with any option you select. In fact, it’s good to know just what challenges and advantages you’ll face with each choice on your list so that you can pick the one that will make your job easiest.

Space, timing and pricing are three of the most critical elements of choosing a dumpster rental company in San Francisco. The first thing to do is make sure the rental company you’re considering offers an appropriately sized dumpster for your waste. However, bigger isn’t always better. In fact, sometimes bigger can be more problematic, since you’ll want to place the dumpster on an easily accessible part of your property. In most cases, the dumpster you choose should be able to fit on your driveway. Junk King offers 8 x 12-foot dumpsters that hold approximately 12 cubic yards of material—a compromise that allows for easy placement and significant storage.

You’ll also want to make sure that you can have the dumpster you’ve set out to rent for the right amount of time. There’s hardly any point in renting a dumpster when you end up paying for time you don’t need, or if you can’t have it long enough to fill it with the material you’re trying to move. Junk King offers rentals in three-day windows, so that you have the flexibility to work with but won’t be inconvenienced with a container on your property for longer than necessary. Finally, our fixed rental periods prevent renters from incurring late fees—we charge based on different criteria instead.

Some dumpster companies charge by time, and others by weight. Our approach is unique, though: we charge based on the amount of space that you use. This approach rewards those of you who are particularly creative or efficient for your efforts with real savings. It’s a bit like playing Tetris; only you’ll be using yard waste and leftover construction materials instead of colorful blocks.

Holding Yourself to a Schedule

Whether you choose Junk King or another dumpster rental company in San Francisco, you’ll want to make sure that the time you rent your dumpster for is used to maximum effect. One smart idea is to put yourself on a schedule so that you don’t end up misusing the time for which you have paid. Make sure that the period for which you’ve rented your dumpster falls in a window where you can manage your time, then plan out blocks that you’ll dedicate to filling it.

Fill Your Dumpster Safely

Efficiency is important, but safety is even more so. You might fill your dumpster quickly, but if the contents stick out over the top or sides of your container than you won’t be able to move it. In fact, California State Law is very strict about moving overfilled dumpsters. Your contractor won’t be able to pick up your dumpster and take it back if you’ve put too much material in it, which means that you may end up violating the terms of your contract or having to pay late fees while you fix the issue. Instead of dealing with these matters, make sure you fill your dumpster safely and responsibly.

The type of material matters too—just as much as the amount. Certain materials are simply not allowed to take up space in dumpsters; even rented ones. Your contractor should be able to tell you more about the specifics, but as a rule, you should avoid any materials that could be toxic or pose other safety hazards. No asbestos, motor oil, or—yes, we must say it—fireworks.

Make Pick-Up and Drop-Off as Easy as Possible

When you rent a dumpster in San Francisco, you’ll have some level of control over where you want it to go on your property. However, that doesn’t mean you should just put it anywhere. Remember, your rental company will be dropping the dumpster off and picking it up using specialized equipment. That equipment must be able to access the spot on your property where you want the dumpster to reside during your care of it. A driveway is usually a safe place. The middle of the lawn or behind the garage? Not so much.

Remember: Your Preparation is Essential for Your Success

Dumpster rental offers many advantages when compared to other forms of waste removal. It requires considerably less labor than trying to haul material to the landfill by yourself. It’s more convenient and lower-pressure than hiring a company to come and clean up your waste for you (and it’s less expensive, too). It gives you maximum control over the way you clean up your site, but control requires consideration if you want to succeed. Refer often to the information above when you need to clean up after a big project, and you should find that your San Francisco dumpster rental is a snap. Choose your company wisely, think about your timing, fill it safely, and make sure the container is easily accessible while it’s on your property. If you can handle that, your waste disposal worries should be over quickly.

If you’re remodeling, re-decorating, landscaping, or just having a thorough spring clean, our mini San Francisco dumpster rental service is ideal for you. There are no hidden charges, we’re always on time, and we look after the environment. Add those benefits to the fact that we’re high value, and you can see why we’re the nation’s favorite junk removal service. Don’t hesitate to give us a call if you have any questions, need advice, or would like to request a dumpster.
