Four Reasons to Rent a Dumpster in San Francisco

3 red mini dumpsters


When you’re planning your next big home project, you might not necessarily be thinking about what you’re going to do with the extra junk or trash that project generates. However, whether you’re remodeling your bathroom or just doing a little spring cleaning, you could easily end up with a ton of trash, junk, or even unwanted furniture and appliances to get rid of. Rather than hauling all this stuff to the landfill and recycling center all by yourself, consider renting a dumpster for a few days to take care of the problem. If you rent one of Junk King’s MINI dumpsters, we’ll drop the dumpster off at your house, then come back and pick it up again when the job is done – and you’ll only have to pay for the space you actually use. Here are a few examples of some household projects that can be made significantly easier with our self-service MINI dumpster rental.


Moving Made Easy with a MINI Dumpster from Junk King San Francisco


One of the nice little bonuses of moving into a new place is that it gives you a chance to get rid of some of the junk and clutter that you no longer need. When you’re faced with the prospect of loading and unloading every single appliance, piece of furniture, and assorted junk from your home, cutting down starts to seem like a really good idea. However, moving is also exhausting even in the best of circumstances, so getting rid of unwanted items is probably the last thing on your mind. Unfortunately, gone are the days when you could just dump everything on the curb, which means you’ll need some other way to dispose of the trash.


Enter Junk King San Francisco! Our MINI dumpsters are perfect for loading full of your unwanted trash and household items, and you can rest easy knowing everything you leave in the bin will be properly sorted through and kept out of the landfill. That means you can go ahead and toss in furniture, appliances, or anything else you don’t want to load into the moving truck.


Renting a Dumpster Makes Spring Cleaning a Breeze

Spring cleaning is a massive pain in the butt, especially if you have a big house full of stuff. Facing down a whole weekend or longer of going through belongings, scrubbing the floors, dusting surfaces, and plain old cleaning up is enough to make anyone look for an easier way. Here’s a little tip: before you start working through all that stuff in the garage or, even worse, the basement, give Junk King San Francisco a call and let us drop off a MINI dumpster for you. Having a place to put the trash and unwanted junk allows you to avoid taking trips to and from the dump or recycling center, massively cutting down on the time your spring cleaning will take.


As an added bonus, our specially designed MINI dumpsters were created with regular people like you in mind, which means they’re perfect for cleaning. At about the size of a small pickup truck, a MINI dumpster will leave plenty of room in your driveway, while our special polycarbonate wheels allow you to move the bin wherever it’s convenient without leaving any marks or scratches on your asphalt.


Don’t Start Your Remodel without a Dumpster


Even the smallest remodel will generate a ton of trash. You have all the debris from the initial teardown, plus extra pieces of wood, broken tiles, bits of concrete, vinyl siding, not to mention any fixtures or appliances that have been replaced. A rented dumpster will make the other projects in this article a lot easier, but when it comes to home remodels, a dumpster is an absolute necessity. Whether you’re just updating your bathroom or completely redoing a bedroom or kitchen, you’ll be surprised at how much trash gets left over. Luckily, Junk King is equipped to handle any and all junk your project will generate – short of radioactive or toxic waste. We’re talking tiling, drywall, sheetrock, floorboards, glass, shingles, iron, concrete, and any kind of fixture or appliance you can imagine.


Planning something a little more ambitious and you’re worried a dumpster won’t be enough? You can go for a bigger bin, or just opt for our full-service junk removal. With the full junk removal service, all you’ll have to do is bag up the trash, set up an appointment, and wait for our junk removal specialists to arrive. Once we’re on the scene, just point to anything you need to be removed and we’ll take care of it for you. Our professionals are trained and capable of hauling just about anything, from bags of debris to large fixtures and furniture. It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3.


Dumpster Rental Makes Your Yardwork Easy as Pie


Dumpsters aren’t just for in-home projects. At Junk King San Francisco, we’re more than capable of handling your yard trimmings as well, including branches, clippings, soil, fencing, firewood, and even old stumps. While renting a dumpster for everyday lawn maintenance is probably overkill, it’s a great option if you’re thinking about switching out the plants in your garden or replacing some shrubs or hedges. Whether you have a clean suburban lawn or a huge rural estate, we’re here to help you keep everything clean, tidy, and free of leftover piles of trimmings and branches.

4 Ways to Get Rid of Scrap or Junk in San Francisco

Scrap Removal


As a homeowner, there’s nothing more frustrating than seeing your house slowly filling up with junk and scrap. Whether it’s the broken washing machine currently doubling as surface space in your basement or the pile of scrap wood left over from your last home improvement project, these things accumulate in your house until you start to feel overwhelmed. You know a spring cleaning is in order, but it can be hard to know where to start, especially if you don’t want to just toss everything in the dump.


Hiring a junk removal company like Junk King San Francisco is an easy and highly affordable option for getting rid of the extra scrap in your home, but if you’d rather take care of things yourself, there are still plenty of things you can do to make spring cleaning a cinch.


Sell Your Junk Online


If some of the stuff you’re trying to get rid of is still in good working order, why not make a little extra cash while you’re getting rid of it? There are plenty of places online where you can sell unwanted items, like Craigslist, OfferUp, or Facebook Marketplace. Make sure to take some good photographs to put up as part of the post – nobody wants to buy something they haven’t even seen!


Even though you may not make a ton of money selling your unwanted clutter on the internet, it’s an easy way to get rid of stuff without having to take it somewhere yourself – plus the cash does add up!


Upcycle Your Scrap


If you’re the crafty type, you can always use your leftover scrap as materials to make something entirely new. Even though your worn-out sofa has seen better days, that doesn’t mean it’s not salvageable! Helping your old furniture or appliances find a new life is a great way to keep your house from becoming cluttered with junk without having to add anything to the landfill.


Don’t be afraid to take risks and take big swings when you’re upcycling your stuff! It can be a lot of fun to radically alter your furniture or scrap, especially since you can always just get rid of it if the project doesn’t work out the way you hoped it would. There are no mistakes in upcycling, only lessons learned, so don’t be bashful!


The key to upcycling successfully is preparation. Take a look at all the extra stuff you have and plan carefully. Make sure you have all the tools you need as well or borrow some from a friend if you don’t. Once you have all the materials you’ll need, just be creative! Try to think outside the box and come up with brand new uses for your objects. Stepladders can become shelves, washing machine drums can become outdoor planters, and old tires make great bases for fire pits. You might be surprised at what you can come up with when you put your mind to it!


Recycle Your Scrap and Junk


The city of San Francisco places some strong limits on what you can actually throw in the landfill, which means you’ll probably have to recycle your stuff if you want to just throw it away. Small objects and scrap can be tossed in your recycling bin, but larger objects like furniture and appliances will have to be hauled down to a recycling center to be disposed of. This is no big deal if you have a truck large enough to carry the junk, otherwise, you’ll have to either rent or borrow one.


Different materials have to be recycled in different ways and might require you to visit different recycling centers. E-waste, like old computers or televisions, has to be disposed of very carefully to avoid releasing chemicals into the air or the ground and have to be taken to special recycling centers. E-waste should also be recycled because the rare earth minerals in the batteries and screens can be salvaged and reused in other electronics. Rare earth ore is found in limited supply, so recycling it is more important than ever. Without robust recycling programs, studies have found that we could run out of rare earth minerals as early as the mid-21st century.
