Appliance Removal Services in San Francisco

appliance removal services san francisco

Have you ever stopped to consider where all of the trash that you throw away eventually ends up? Across the United States, there are at least 2,000 active landfills that receive, process and bury the trash that we send out to our curbs for the garbage truck to carry away. Of the roughly 254 million tons of waste that Americans throw out every year, a little bit more than half of that ends up in those landfills across the country. In the United States, we produce about 30 percent of the world´s trash, despite only making up around 4 percent of the world´s population.

Finding ways to move towards a “zero-waste” society, then, is one of the pressing environmental challenges that we face. On an individual level, there are fortunately several things that we can all do to help reduce the amount of waste we create. Starting a backyard compost heap to process our kitchen scraps, leftover meals, and yard waste is one simple strategy to reduce the amount of trash we send out to the curb every week. By simply separating our organic and inorganic wastes, we are also helping to drastically reduce the methane emissions emitted at local landfills, which result from the combination of organic and inorganic residues. Also, cutting back on single-use plastics and packaging is another way to move towards the ideal zero-waste society.

In the case of larger pieces of trash such as refrigerators, televisions, and other appliances, however, finding ways to recycle or repurpose these items can be a bit more difficult. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that around 9 million refrigerators and freezers are thrown out in the United States every year. On top of that, millions of other household appliances also eventually end up taking up an enormous amount of space in landfills around the country each year.

Fortunately, there are several different ways to properly and safely get rid of your used appliances in an environmentally friendly manner. At Junk King San Francisco we are the top-rated junk removal company in the Bay Area because we strive to help individuals, homeowners, business owners, and large industries get rid of all of their bulky items in an efficient, resourceful, and affordable manner.

The Environmental and Health Implications of Proper Disposal of Used Appliances

The vast majority of municipal garbage services across the country have some sort of policy or ordinance that prohibits homeowners from throwing away their used appliances with regular household trash. In the city of San Francisco, it is actually illegal to take your used furniture, appliances, or other bulky items out to the sidewalk. According to the San Francisco Public Works office “sidewalk dumping can result in citations and fines unless you have a scheduled pick up from a licensed hauler or donation facility.”

Why exactly is it illegal in San Francisco (and so many other localities) to attempt to send your used appliances to the county dump? For starters, some appliances might be filled with chemical substances and materials that are extremely harmful to the surrounding environment. The refrigerant material used in refrigerators, for example, either use CFCs (for fridges built before 1995), or HFCs (more recent models). Both CFCs and HFCs are known to be ozone-depleting substances. When released, they also act as a potent greenhouse gas that contributes to global warming. Studies have shown that HFCs actually have a global warming potential (GWP) that is anywhere between 50 and 14,000 times as high as carbon dioxide! Many of the foam insulation products used in refrigerators also contain high amounts of CFCs or HFCs that are subsequently released into the atmosphere when improperly disposed of.

Furthermore, some refrigerator models might also include trace amounts of heavy metals such as mercury that could potentially leach into surrounding soils and even contaminate water sources. Perhaps even more worrisome, refrigerators that were manufactured before 1980 most likely contain large amounts of PCBs or polychlorinated biphenyls in their capacitors.  Studies of the effects of PCBs in humans have found increased rates of melanomas, liver cancer, gall bladder cancer, biliary tract cancer, gastrointestinal tract cancer, and brain cancer, and may be linked to breast cancer. Furthermore, PCBs can also accumulate in aquatic ecosystems, potentially making it dangerous to eat fish and other seafood. Not exactly what you want when living next to the ocean.

Other common household appliances can also potentially leak dangerous substances into the surrounding soil and groundwater, including chlorine, fluorine, used oil, refrigerants, and beryllium. Electronic appliances such as TVs, sound systems are now classified as e-waste, which comes with its own set of hazards when landfilled. E-waste most likely contains high levels of toxic components that are dangerous to human health, such as mercury, lead, cadmium, polybrominated flame retardants, barium, and lithium. Just as with PCBs, the negative health effects of these toxins in e-waste can include brain, heart, liver, kidney, and skeletal system damage.

How Can I Safely Get Rid of My Used Appliances?

Despite the obvious hazards associated with improper disposal of household appliances, there are certainly times when upgrading to a newer model of different types of appliances is necessary and warranted. Every appliance will eventually give out and die, and most newer models of appliances are significantly more energy-efficient. When it is time to say goodbye to that old refrigerator or TV, finding a junk removal company that makes every effort to donate or recycle your used appliances should be your first priority.

The State of California has a Certified Appliance Recycle (CAR) Program. Because California law requires that appliances, and certain materials within appliances, be properly handled, the state certifies different recycling agencies to ensure that all hazardous and toxic materials are handled in a healthy and environmentally responsible manner.

For residents of San Francisco, California, Junk King San Francisco has been offering superior junk removal service since 2005. The company has hands-down the best customer service in the San Francisco Bay Area and we are proud to have a 5-star rating on Yelp. At Junk King San Francisco, we maintain a solid relationship with the dozens of state-certified appliance recyclers in the Bay Area and we try to donate all used appliances that are still in usable condition. Unlike other junk removal companies, the company makes every effort to recycle or donate your used appliances.

Once you agree on a price and a date, all of our Junk King´s employees are trained to call you 15 to 30 minutes before every job and make every effort to honor the 2-hour window that you choose for pickup. We offer competitive, up-front and transparent pricing to help you get rid of your used appliances and other bulky junk items in an affordable and efficient manner.

Finding Easy Furniture Removal in San Francisco

furniture removal san francisco

Many of those over the age of 40 or so might remember the days when hefting a piece of furniture wasn’t a big deal. In fact, some guys could probably pick up a recliner or dining room table by themselves. 

The rest of us were content to hold the doors open! 

However, when you’ve gotten older, or the furniture happens to be a sofa or large credenza, lifting it yourself isn’t really feasible. And moving old furniture out of the house and into the back of a truck? Forget it!

But if you live in or near San Francisco – as more than 880,000 people do – getting rid of furniture is something that has to happen every once in a while.

This is why Junk King San Francisco offers furniture removal services.

Please Take My Couch

With apologies to Henny Youngman, this is a true sentiment for many folks. From the Richmond District to Golden Gate Heights, and from the Mission District to Russian Hill, people are getting rid of old, unwanted furniture.

And it’s not always easy. 

In fact, if you can’t sell your old furniture pieces – or they’re not in good enough shape to sell – and you’re not able to donate them, you’ve still got to find a way to get rid of them. For most folks this means hauling them away somewhere. 

But what does that entail exactly?

Kitchen chairs, dining room tables, recliners, sofas, and bookcases take up a lot of room in a vehicle. And you have to get them out of the house or apartment first. This can be challenging if you have stairs – and who doesn’t in the City?

And once you get your old furniture pieces, or pieces, outside you still have to figure out what to do with them. You can’t just leave them out on the curb, as tempting as that might be. In fact, it’s quite illegal, unlawful, and simply bad form to leave an old couch abandoned somewhere. 

Even if you do put a sign on it that reads: “FREE”

So, you need to get your hands on a truck or large cargo van then haul it all to a waste transfer station someplace. 

Seriously – there has to be an easier way! 

And there is when you call Junk King San Francisco.  

Furniture Removal for San Francisco Doesn’t Have to be Hard, Does It?

Unfortunately, there are people who dump their old furniture on the side of a road, in empty lots, and sometimes they simply dump them in front of a thrift store. 

Yes, it’s unlawful, but if no one sees it happen then nothing further happens. Yet, no one likes having old, broken-down furniture or mattresses lying abandoned in their neighborhood, either. 

Debris, junk, and old furniture can bring down the overall quality and safety of a residential block as well as contribute to a rise in crime, according to numerous studies

Trying to transport old furniture is a challenge, especially if you don’t own a truck or know someone who does and is willing to help you. Once loaded into a suitable vehicle, however, you still have to know where to take your old furniture and be ready to pay whatever the fee is for that waste management facility.

While you might still be able to simply dump your old furniture items at a transfer station or an actual landfill (if you can find one), it’s a far better solution to have your unwanted furniture recycled if it can’t be reused or repurposed.

According to an article at RecycleNow.com,

“Furniture at the end of its useful life can often be recycled, especially items made from wood and metal.”

However, this is a somewhat ambiguous topic since so many wood furniture items are made of material that has been chemically treated in some way or another.

A post from Recycle Nation describes it well,

“End tables, coffee tables, bookshelves, dining room chairs and the like all have one thing in common: They are made of treated wood. That makes them difficult, if not impossible, to recycle. The main uses for recycled wood are compost, garden amendments like mulch or burning it for energy.

The chemicals in varnishes, paints and other wood treatment products make your old furniture a bad candidate for all those applications. More and more furniture items are made with less-expensive particleboard and chipboard, but these products fall in the nonrecyclable category as well.”

However, there are other ways to dispose of these items that do not involve simply tossing them into a landfill.

Our Office Furniture Removal Process is “Green” Furniture Removal

Too many junk removal companies operate with the end goal of taking as much as possible to the nearest landfill. And, while it may seem to be quicker and more efficient, it’s certainly not the way we do things here at Junk King San Francisco.

In fact, our junk disposal process involves taking the junk and trash that we’ve picked up from you, including your unwanted furniture, and transporting it all to our local Junk King warehouse.

Once there, it is all meticulously sorted through. We do this because most of the items can either be reused, repurposed, or at least recycled.

When it comes to furniture, most items are constructed with a variety of materials, and many pieces like stuffed chairs, couches or credenzas need to be dismantled. The good news is that many of the materials are easily recycled such as the plastics and most of the wood. 

While there are other products such as certain foam padding materials that require special handling, all of the steel and aluminum parts can be used as scrap metal, and even all the solid wood furniture can be easily recycled.

At Junk King, it has always been our corporate 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. Our trained and licensed crew even operates a fleet of bio-diesel trucks for many of our jobs.

We’ve been named “America’s greenest junk removal service” in large part because we understand that you want green removal and disposal of your junk. So, we take care of it for you!

Need Office Furniture Removal in San Francisco? Call Junk King

WFH – an abbreviation that has become synonymous with COVID-19, coronavirus, working remotely, and stay-at-home orders, especially in cities such as San Francisco. And, whether you live or work in the Mission District, the Sunset District, near Balboa Park, or in Bayview, working from home can mean office furniture removal. 

If your home office has recently been renovated – which is a common practice these days as people find themselves spending far more time there – or your commercial space has been closed down indefinitely, you have old things to get rid of.

Looking For Space – More Office Space Actually

Back in 1975 when John Denver was singing about finding himself, this was somewhat of a stirring and uplifting sentiment. Today, not so much.

According to one source

“Data issued by the US Census Bureau and the Bureau of Labor Statistics showed that 4.7 million people, which make about 3.4% of the US workforce, were already working remotely before the novel coronavirus took the world by storm.”

And even more will join them permanently even after the latest wave of virtual workers are herded back to their corporate cubicles. Statista reported, 

“25% of respondent companies will move 10% of their employees to permanent remote positions post-COVID 19.”

With so many people transitioning to a “work from home” lifestyle, finding sufficient space and privacy in many homes is a challenge. And, with all the changes often comes a change of equipment and furnishings.

This often means that when the new stuff comes in, the old stuff has to go out. And, when the old stuff is office furniture, removing and disposing of it all can be a challenge.

Office chairs, desks, file cabinets, bookcases, and printer stands are hard to fit into a Prius or MINI Cooper. And leaving them out on the curb for someone to take isn’t really practical in the City. So, getting rid of old, unwanted office furniture is now a growing problem in cities like San Francisco. 

And not just for the WFH folks who are busy working in their business casual tops and flannel pajama bottoms!

There are plenty of businesses that, although they have managed to stay afloat in the onslaught of economic chaos, stay-at-home orders, government shutdowns, and just the general craziness of the previous year, have still found themselves downsizing.

And, of course, there are those businesses that, tragically, have closed down as a result of all this.

And downsizing or minimizing space often means getting rid of excess equipment and furnishings – similar problems but for different reasons.

Office Furniture Removal for San Francisco

If your company is busy “emptying cubicles by the Bay” and your job is to find the best solution for office furniture removal, you are probably looking for something quick and easy.

Or, if you are newly working from home and have had to get rid of your old furniture in order to make room for your new furniture, it’s also your job to find the best solution for office furniture removal. And you probably also want some method that is quick and easy.

Good news: Junk King San Francisco has the solution you need.

Assuming you have either been unable to or have decided not to even try to, sell or donate your old office furniture, removing them yourself can be rough. For businesses with employees, it may be tempting to rent a truck and press them into service as furniture movers and junk haulers. 

But it’s not cost-effective nor efficient. And probably not even safe. 

With health protocols, social distancing, huffing and puffing through a mask while grappling with heavy furniture, this isn’t an ideal DIY project for anyone. In fact, taking care of your own office furniture removal is probably much more than most people can or want to do.

However, you can easily hire a professional firm to do all the heavy lifting for you and haul it all away so you can avoid this task.

In fact, outsourcing for professional and reliable office furniture removal is actually a smart business decision. 

And calling Junk King San Francisco to pick up your old office furniture makes great sense because there’s simply no easy way to get rid of it yourself especially in San Francisco! Best of all, Junk King will provide you with an efficient, safe, and eco-friendly furniture removal service so you don’t need to worry about the pickup or disposal of your old office items.

Not only that, but we also make sure that your old furniture items end up in the right place: whether it be a charity if the pieces of furniture are still in good shape for a donation or a recycling facility to ensure your furniture is disposed of in an eco-friendly way.

The Dumpster Rental Experience

So, what should you expect when you rent a dumpster in San Francisco?

We can’t speak for other companies but when you rent from Junk King San Francisco you can expect an easy and positive customer experience from start to finish. We’ve outlined some of the key steps and touchpoints of the dumpster rental process below, as well as what you can expect at each stage.

Our Dumpster Booking

If you are ready to rent a dumpster right now you can click here and scroll down until you see the contact form on the right-hand side of the page. While you can certainly call us instead, by booking online you’ll save $30!

When you fill out the online form, you will provide us with your name, address, zip code, phone number, and email address. You can also input the date you need the rental, and the online form will give you some time slots from which to choose. In some cases, you might be asked to call Junk King to discuss the details of your order.

Our Dumpster Size

Aside from cost, the primary consideration for a rental dumpster is determining how large a debris bin you need. Are you really going to need a dumpster with a 20 cubic yard capacity, or can you get by with one that holds just 10 or 12 cubic yards of junk?

At Junk King San Francisco, we realize that most customers really don’t know how much space they need. Consequently, choosing a dumpster size is usually based on little more than an educated guess. This can be stressful since renting a dumpster that’s too small can be a problem, while ending up with one that is far too large means paying more when you didn’t need to.

At Junk King, we understand this. So, to eliminate the stress and streamline the dumpster rental process, Junk King just has one dumpster size: The Junk King MINI Dumpster.

The MINI is a 12-cubic yard debris bin that is the perfect size. It will fit in almost all driveways and, more often than not, it is the perfect size for most self-service junk removal tasks. The Junk King MINI is fully capable of handling smaller junk items as well as larger ones, such as old furniture and broken-down appliances.

Our Dumpster Pricing

Because there are different dumpster sizes available and a variety of cost factors to consider, most dumpster rental companies end up with complex – and confusing – pricing structures.

Not so with Junk King.

By limiting our self-service dumpster rental to our Junk King MINI Dumpster, we have a simple pricing structure that is both transparent and easy to understand.

First: There are no hidden charges or fees with your dumpster rental. Too many other companies “nickel and dime” their customers with unfair extraneous charges. At Junk King, we don’t want to be one of them.

Second: We offer pricing based on how long you need your dumpster rental. If you know you are going to knock out a house cleaning project in just one weekend, for example, a three-day rental can be perfect

For bigger projects, you can rent your dumpster for five or seven days. No matter how long you choose to keep it, you will know exactly when your dumpster is scheduled to be picked up and how much the rental will cost.

Third: You only pay for the dumpster space you use with Junk King. With most companies, you pay one full price when you rent their dumpster whether you fill it halfway or all the way. 

At Junk King, we have different pricing tiers based on how much space you actually use. The minimum tier is for dumpsters that are less than half full, then there is a half-full tier, and a full dumpster tier.

If you end up filling your dumpster and still have more junk to get rid of, just let us know. Junk King will pick up your dumpster and drop off another one for you. And it doesn’t matter if you fill two, three, or even ten MINI Dumpsters, you will still only pay for the space you use!

The Dumpster Drop-Off and Pick-Up Process

If you choose to rent a dumpster, then it’s probably a time-sensitive project, which means it’s also crucial that you get it on time. Otherwise, you’ll have nowhere to toss your trash, building debris, or other junk when the time comes to clean, move, or renovate.

At Junk King, you schedule your drop-off and pick-up times beforehand and our crews are guaranteed to be on time for both appointments. And we’ll even call you 15 minutes before your scheduled drop-off time to ensure that you’re there to accept the delivery.

With our process, there is no confusion about where the dumpster is or when it is coming.

And you don’t have to worry about having a dumpster loaded with junk sitting in your driveway for days, attracting flies or other pests. We’ll be there on time to pick up your dumpster and haul your junk away.

A Quick Guide to Renting a Junk King MINI Dumpster

We’ve put together a graphic guide that gives you all the key information you may need to make your dumpster rental experience with Junk King San Francisco a smooth one. 

And when you’re ready to start loading your junk or debris, be sure to give us a call!

Working With Junk King San Francisco

Your interactions with Junk King professionals will be minimal throughout the rental process. We provide quick, timely deliveries and pick-ups and then get out of your hair so you can go to work. However, you can always expect these interactions to be positive and pleasant. We believe very firmly in the power of good customer service and have gone to great lengths to provide it.

Our employees are friendly, licensed, insured, uniformed professionals. And they are equipped with the vehicles, training, and knowledge to expertly handle your delivery and pick-up. One of the best things for you is that our dumpster delivery team will be extremely careful to ensure we never damage your driveway, curb, or yard in any way.

Green Junk Removal in San Francisco

Usually, the words “trash” or “junk” and “sustainability” don’t go together in the same sentence.

That’s because most junk removal services will pick up a dumpster and take it immediately to the nearest landfill. That’s not the case with Junk King San Francisco. Instead, we take your junk and trash to our local Junk King warehouse and meticulously sort through everything. This is done because many of the items can either be reused, repurposed, or recycled.

By pulling these items out before they end up in the landfill, we work hard to protect the planet and provide our customers with a more sustainable solution. We know that you might not necessarily have the time to be sorting through all your junk items if you’re preparing for a move, or in the midst of a major cleaning of a cluttered house.

So, we take care of it for you, which is why we’ve been named “America’s greenest junk removal service.”

Taking Care Of Junk Removal In San Francisco

If you live in the City by the Bay and need to get rid of some unwanted items, you may find that when it comes to junk removal, San Francisco can be a challenge.

Depending on where you live in the City, just getting your junk out of your house or apartment can be a major undertaking. And when you consider that getting any large junk items into your car may be difficult at best, the entire undertaking can become overwhelming.

 And, of course, if you manage to get it loaded you still have to know where to dispose of it!

The Challenge of Junk Removal

In the City of San Francisco there are only a few public waste management transfer facilities available for disposing of your own junk. And, in a city of over three million people, that can be a problem.

As everyone living in the City is aware, if you want to go anywhere outside of San Francisco you can only go north over the bridge, east over the other bridge, or south through Day City or South San Francisco. In other words, getting your own junk to a proper landfill is no easy task. 

However, simply dumping your junk in a landfill isn’t your only option and, in fact, it’s not even your best option.

That’s right – you have options!

Thinking About Junk Removal – What Can You Do With It?

You’ve likely heard the old saying that “One man’s junk is another man’s treasure.” Although that may not be literally true, what is true is that much of what we throw out on a regular basis has value.

Depending on whose study you look at, it’s been estimated that in the United States somewhere between 60 to 80 percent of common household trash that goes into the waste stream is made up of recyclable materials.

Not only that, it’s been determined that a substantial amount of this is actually reusable “as is.” In other words, it simply needs to be repurposed or reused somewhere else. Because the default practice for most of us, however, is to throw away what we no longer want or need, most of this ends up in the trash.

How much ends up there?

In the United States, the average person produces almost four and half pounds of waste every day. Yet, of that, almost a third of it can be either recycled or composted.

The United States generates over 250 million tons of trash every year, according to the U.S. Geological Survey, yet more than 85 million tons of it is material that’s either recyclable or compostable material.

Unfortunately, however, the recycling rate in the U.S. is still only a little over 34 percent.

Even in San Francisco, we generate 900,000 tons of discarded material every year, but the annual amount of trash sent to landfills increased to 427,000 tons in 2018.

That year, the city’s new mayor, London Breed, set new goals of achieving zero waste by 2030, cutting all waste the city produces by 15 percent, and reducing the waste it sends to landfills by 50 percent. 

The bottom line for everyone, especially those of us in San Francisco, is that everything we throw in the trash shouldn’t go to a landfill. This is why, at Junk King San Francisco, we make every effort to recycle or reuse everything that comes into our doors.

Rethinking Junk – Can You Give It Away?

One of the great things about “junk” is that it isn’t all broken and unusable stuff. In fact, many of us have some items we think of as junk that could easily be given away to someone else or donated to a non-profit organization.

This is something that is far easier to do in the City than finding a landfill!

One of the great things about old junk is that many items are almost certainly reusable. Used furniture, slightly dated clothing, old but working electronics, toys, and just about anything else that can still be used can also be donated.

If you can’t pass them along to friends, neighbors, or family members that want them, there are plenty of organizations that will most likely take them.

There are a few ways to find a place to donate your unwanted, usable items in San Francisco:

Depending on the type of items you need to get rid of, your local schools, churches, or even community theaters might be open to accepting donations. While making conscientious donations requires some effort and forethought, it is a great way of doing good for others while helping yourself. 

Of course, there is always the option of selling some of your “junk” items.

Aside from the venerable yard sale approach, most folks these days choose to use online sites for selling their old, unwanted items. The only downsides are that this approach can take a bit longer and requires some work on your part. 

Not too many years ago it seemed that there were just a few sites for this kind of selling: eBay and Craigslist. However, the market has changed in just the last decade. Here’s a brief listing of some of the selling sites that are now available online:

  1. VarageSale
  2. Wallapop
  3. Facebook Marketplace
  4. Tradyo
  5. Nextdoor
  6. OfferUp
  7. Bookoo
  8. 5Miles
  9. Shpock

Every site is different and some charge fees to list, others only a transaction fee, while some are completely free. When selling anything online it helps to have good, clear images, as well as compelling descriptions and full disclosure of and defects or damage. 

So, maybe you just have junk that is really, well, junk. What do you do with it if you can’t donate it or sell it? Call in a professional junk removal team to take care of it for you.

What to Expect from a Rental Dumpster in San Francisco

Whether you are preparing for a big move, doing an extensive renovation, or simply taking care of some much-needed spring cleaning, renting a dumpster is a convenient way of managing junk removal at your home or office. A rental dumpster can sit conveniently out in your driveway, the perfect place to toss old toys, busted electronics, broken furniture, cardboard boxes, and other junk you don’t need anymore. If you need a dumpster in San Francisco, Junk King can help by providing top-notch service and competitive pricing. Our self-serve dumpster rentals are rated #1 in all North America, so you can rest easy knowing that you are in good hands.

The Dumpster Rental Experience

dumpster san franciscoSo, what should you expect when you rent a dumpster in San Francisco? We can’t speak for other companies, but when you rent from Junk King, you can expect an easy, painless customer experience from start to finish. Below, we’ve outlined some of the key steps and touchpoints of the dumpster rental process, as well as what you should expect at each stage.

  • The inquiry

If you are ready to rent a dumpster, click here and scroll down until you see the contact form on the right-hand side of the page. You can always call Junk King, but booking online can save you $30. When you fill out the form, you will provide us with your name, address, zip code, phone number, and email address. You can also input the date you need the rental and the online form should give you some timeslots from which to choose. In some cases, you might be asked to call Junk King to talk about the details of your order.

  • The Sizing

What about dumpster sizing, you may ask? One of the big considerations, when you rent with most dumpster companies, is how large a bin you need. Do you need a dumpster that is 20 cubic yards in capacity, or can you get by with on that is only 15? From our experience at Junk King, we’ve noticed that customers just don’t know how much space they need. As such, choosing a dumpster rental size is little more than taking shots in the dark. It adds a lot of stress to the process. Getting something too small is a hassle, while getting something too big means paying extra for no real reason.

To avoid the stress and streamline the rental process, Junk King just has one dumpster size: The Junk King MINI. The MINI is a 12-cubic yard bin that is the perfect size to fit in most driveways. It tends to be the perfect size for most self-service junk removal tasks, capable of handling smaller refuse items and bigger ones (such as furniture and appliances) alike.

  • The Pricing

Because of different dumpster sizes and other factors, most dumpster rental companies have complex pricing structures. Not so with Junk King. By narrowing our self-service dumpster rentals down to just the MINI, we have been free create a pricing structure that is both more nuanced and easier to understand.

First, there are no hidden charges or fees with your dumpster rental. We don’t like companies that nickel and dime their customers with unfair extraneous charges, and we don’t want to be one of them.

Secondly, we offer tiered pricing based on how long you need your dumpster rental. If you know you are going to knock out a spring cleaning project in a weekend, a three-day rental should be perfect. For longer projects, you can rent your dumpster for five or seven days. No matter which tier you choose, there is a clear expectation on both sides of when the dumpster is going to be picked up and how much the rental will cost.

Third, and most crucially, you only pay for the dumpster space you use with Junk King. With most companies, you rent a dumpster and pay the full price, whether you fill it halfway or all the way. At Junk King, we have different pricing tiers based on how much space you actually use. These prices can vary depending on your location and how long you need the dumpster. The minimum tier—for dumpsters that are less than half full—can cost as low as $125 for your entire rental. The 1/2 MINI tier ranges from $198 to $350. And even if you fill your dumpster, you could pay as low as $275 (pricing was accurate at the time of publishing this post).

If you end up filling your dumpster and still need more space, just let us know. Junk King will pick up the initial dumpster and drop off another MINI for you to fill. Whether you are on your second, fifth, or tenth MINI, you will still only pay for the space you use.

  • The Drop-off/pick-up process

When you rent a dumpster, it’s probably crucial that you get it on time. Otherwise, you will have nowhere to toss your trash, building debris, or other junk when the time comes to clean, move, or renovate. At Junk King, you schedule your drop-off and pick-up times beforehand. Our crews then guarantee that they will be on time for both appointments. We’ll even call you 15 minutes before your drop-off, to confirm the time and make sure you are there to accept the delivery. With this process, there is no confusion about where the dumpster is or when it is coming. You also don’t have to worry about a packed dumpster sitting in your driveway for several days, attracting flies or other pests. We’ll be there on time to retrieve the junk and haul it away forever.

  • The professionals

Your interactions with Junk King professionals will be minimal throughout the rental process. We provide quick, timely deliveries and pick-ups and then get out of your hair so you can go to work. However, you can always expect these interactions to be positive and pleasant. We believe very firmly in the power of good customer service and have gone to great lengths to provide it. Our employees are friendly, licensed, insured, uniformed professionals with the vehicles, training, and knowledge to handle your delivery or pick-up with aplomb. Rest assured knowing that our delivery representatives will be extremely careful to ensure we don’t place the MINI in such a way that damages your driveway or yard in any way.

  • The sustainability

Usually, the words “trash” or “junk” and “sustainability” don’t go hand-in-hand. The average junk removal service picks up your dumpster and takes it immediately to the nearest landfill. That’s not the case with Junk King. Instead, we take your bin(s) to our local Junk King warehouse and meticulously sort through everything. Some of the stuff can either be reused, repurposed, or recycled. By pulling these items out before they end up in the landfill, we do our part to protect the planet and offer our customers a more sustainable solution. We know that you might not necessarily have the time to worry about sorting items when preparing for a move or cleaning out a cluttered house. We take care of it for you, which is why we’ve been named “America’s greenest junk removal service.”

San Francisco Roll Off Dumpster Rentals

For most people, living in San Francisco means having a busy life and an active schedule. San Fran is a bustling metropolis with no shortage of activities in which to participate. However, residents also commonly have passion projects and personal responsibilities for which they need to make time. The larger these commitments are, the more time and energy they need for them, especially in cases where they are likely to produce unwanted junk or leftover materials. As a result, it’s vital that your waste management choices provide you with the flexibility to work around other events. For that reason, many people in San Francisco choose roll off dumpster rentals over other junk removal options.

san francisco roll off dumpster rentalsIn San Francisco, roll off dumpster rentals are often the best solution for on-the-go urban professionals or those with active lifestyles and thriving social networks. The major advantage to renting a roll off dumpster is that you can choose to fill it up at your convenience, as opposed to moving your commitments around to suit the needs of others. There are certainly other ways to try disposing of your junk, but analyzing these methods normally reveals dumpster rental to be superior. At Junk King, we have seen people try all kinds of things to remove waste materials from their properties, and we have become adept at recognizing which strategies are successful and which ones are not.

Below are a few of the reasons why we believe that for residents of San Francisco, roll off dumpster rentals provide the most elegant waste management solution. We have also outlined a few tips you should keep in mind if you ever decide to rent a roll off dumpster for yourself so that you can reap maximum benefits from the experience.

How do San Francisco Roll Off Dumpster Rentals Compare to Other Waste Disposal Strategies?

One of the clearest ways to see the advantages of roll off dumpster rentals is to compare them to other means of dealing with waste. Typically, there are several other strategies used by individuals who have waste management needs beyond those regular garbage pickups can accommodate. Two commonly attempted alternatives to dumpster rental are full-service junk removal via a cleanup crew and hauling waste material to a landfill in one’s own vehicle. While each of these strategies may seem to offer certain advantages at first, they also come with challenges that may not immediately be apparent.

Hiring a clean-up crew: calling a team of professionals to visit your home or workplace and remove unwanted waste materials often seems like a strategy that requires considerably less effort than others. After all, won’t they take care of everything? Well, the answer to that is both yes and no. Clean-up crews will certainly remove the items you tell them to take away, but if they don’t know what those items are it’s entirely possible for them to make mistakes. Simply put: they might not get everything the first time, which means you could end up having to call them out again and paying for their service twice unless they offer a guarantee. The best way to avoid this is by sticking around during their visit and supervising the entire process, which can take valuable time out of your schedule and practically defeats the purpose of calling professionals in the first place.

DIY junk removal in a personal vehicle: some people think they will save copious amounts of money by taking their unwanted materials to the nearest dump in their own vehicles, but this option can be particularly risky. It is true that using your own vehicle means you won’t have to rent equipment or hire labor from another party, but that doesn’t necessarily mean ridding yourself of junk is going to be free. In fact, you may find yourself subjected to dumping fees when you arrive at your destination since most contemporary landfills now charge. Those fees might not be the full extent of the financial consequences you face for DIY dumping, either. There is always the chance that the materials you are transporting will damage the upholstery inside your vehicle if improperly stored or have sharp points and edges.

Renting a dumpster helps you avoid the pitfalls of either method listed above. Unlike hiring a clean-up crew, dumpster rental provides you with the ability to work around other events in your own schedule, since you’ll be free to fill it with material as you wish during the length of the rental period. Since an experienced team of professionals will also pick the dumpster up at the end of your rental and dispose of the contents, you will also be free from having to risk your own vehicle or pay dumping fees to use a landfill. For these reasons, roll off dumpster rental makes sense for more San Franciscans than most other methods of waste removal.

Factors to Consider if You Choose San Francisco Roll Off Dumpster Rental

Renting a roll off dumpster in San Francisco or the surrounding area can help many people handle substantial amounts of waste or junk, from homeowners attempting to spruce up houses and repurpose rooms to contractors and handypersons who have professional responsibilities. However, there are specific factors to consider if you want to rent a roll off dumpster successfully. Specifically, you will want to consider the size of your container, its placement on your property, the fee structure of the company from which you rent it, and the laws pertaining to dumpster waste in your area.

The size of your container is particularly important since it can affect the price you end up paying to rent it and either help or hinder your clean-up experience. Inexperienced renters often look for the largest dumpsters they can find, but a better strategy is to try matching the amount of waste you need to deal with to the size of the dumpster you rent. Large dumpsters can take up considerable space on your property—and if you were thinking of placing your dumpster on the street outside your house, think again. Unfortunately, laws prevent dumpsters from occupying public rights of way, which include public spaces such as roads, paths, and sidewalks. Generally speaking, the best place for a dumpster is on your driveway, which means smaller containers will almost always be more practical. After all, a smaller container will probably still allow you to drive to the garage and park your car.

At Junk King, we’ve tried to take a unique approach to dumpster rental by offering conveniently sized containers of 12 cubic yards in volume. These containers will still hold an amount equal to that of several pickup trucks, but will not obstruct access to most driveways. Standard rental periods are for three days, which gives renters plenty of time to pack their container without putting off or rescheduling other commitments. Finally, we charge only for the amount of space that each client uses in their container, which rewards efficient customers and incentivizes them to pack responsibly. We also uphold a firm commitment to sustainability and work hard to sort each item in our care in the eco-friendliest way available.

Do Your Research and Choose San Francisco Roll Off Dumpster Rentals that Fit Your Needs

San Francisco roll off dumpster rentals can be much more effective at allowing you to remove waste than other methods, but you’ll have to choose the company you rent from with care. For more information on renting dumpsters in your area, contact via email or call Junk King and ask one of our professionals to help you learn more about how to find containers for your needs.

Is a Smaller roll off dumpster Better For San Francisco?

If you live in the San Francisco area, you probably enjoy a busy and dynamic lifestyle. However, you may also find yourself with various projects to do around the home. San Francisco homeowners commonly renovate their homes, update their décor, and convert spaces for new purposes. The number of projects you can undertake to revitalize your property is astounding—but so is the amount of waste material that those projects can produce. If you are about to start a personal project that will create significant amounts of leftover junk, you’ll need a way to dispose of it responsibly. Roll off dumpster rental is one potential solution, but many people have questions when it comes to choosing a dumpster and need more information before they settle on one.

roll off dumpsterSome of the questions that we face most often at Junk King are regarding dumpster size. People aren’t sure what size container they will need to accommodate the waste removal needs of their project. This situation is especially true in areas like San Francisco, where deceptively compact-looking homes can still contain multitudes of personal possessions. The unique nature of the city and its properties can certainly complicate matters, so we’ve put together a guide that we hope will help you choose an adequately-sized container next time you want to rent a skip. Keep reading to see what we recommend for San Francisco dumpster hunters, so that you can choose a container suited to the requirements of your next project.

First Things First: Why Choose a Roll Off Dumpster for Your Project

The first question that anyone should ask when they have waste to dispose of is: what method will be most effective? It’s important to note that dumpster rental is not the only way to rid yourself of materials you no longer need. In addition to rental companies, there are plenty of organizations that can send a team to your location for full-service waste removal. You may also be able to remove junk from your property by bagging it up yourself and taking it to the nearest landfill in the back of your vehicle. However, a more detailed analysis of the pros and cons of each method normally shows that rental is more convenient and cost-effective.

Consider the logistics of hiring a company to come and clear away junk from your property. You’ll have to make sure that you’re around to let them in, and since many companies only operate during regular business hours that could mean missing a day of work. On the other hand, taking junk to the landfill by yourself is certainly more flexible—but it can also require a lot of physical labor on your part. You might also find that you must pay public dumping fees, and that’s to say nothing of the interior repairs your vehicle might need if you aren’t careful loading everything into the bed, trunk, or backseat. There’s also the matter of paying for the gas that multiple trips to and from the landfill could cost you. Renting a dumpster is almost certainly going to take less of your time and money than these options.

Factors that Complicate Dumpster Rental in San Francisco

Of course, that’s not to say that dumpster rental in San Francisco is a magic solution to your waste disposal needs. It can certainly be easier than other methods, but for best results, it helps to consider certain factors ahead of time. It’s also important to remember that San Francisco is not like other cities. A high-density urban area with narrower streets and buildings than many other US municipalities, it poses several specific challenges for those who rent waste skips there.

San Francisco is like most cities in that you are not legally allowed to obstruct a public right of way without first obtaining a permit from the Public Works office. In San Francisco, Public Works issues permits related to numerous private or public projects, including excavations, borings, and sidewalk repairs. They also have special permits for dumpsters and debris boxes, which must be applied for if those items are going to occupy streets, sidewalks, paths, or other public access zones. The bond for a debris box permit is $5,000, so this can be an inconvenience for some renters.

You may be in luck if your home happens to have a driveway. Driveways on your property are not considered public right of way areas, and you can place a dumpster on your driveway without applying for a permit beforehand. However, since many San Francisco residents live in compact homes or apartment complexes, you will have to make sure the container you rent can fit on your driveway (or elsewhere on your property) without causing a major inconvenience to you and the other occupants.

Advantages of Smaller Dumpsters

One of the most vital ways in which small dumpsters assist renters is by being versatile. While it is true that they have less storage capacity than larger containers, they are rarely too small for domestic projects such as renovations or spring cleanups. In fact, even a dumpster with a volume of 12 cubic yards holds more than three pickup trucks’ worth of material, which means you don’t always need to rent the biggest container you can find. In fact, you almost never do.

Better yet is the fact that small dumpsters take up much less physical space. A small debris box will often fit in a driveway without preventing access to the street and the garage, even in cities like San Francisco—where driveways tend to be tighter than in most other cities. As such, renting a small dumpster may allow you to complete your project without needing to apply for a permit, or even find another place to park your car during the process.

Choosing a Dumpster Rental Company

Choosing a specific company in the San Francisco area from which to rent your dumpster should depend on the following criteria: what sizes do they offer, how long will you have the container for, and how much will it cost? After all, a company that offers excellent rates but inconveniently sized units or problematic scheduling will hardly provide you with much in the way of value.

At Junk King, we offer mini dumpster rentals for homeowners and professionals who need flexibility from their rental companies and are concerned about green disposal tactics. Our containers have a volume of 12 cubic feet, which gives them plenty of storage space but prevents them from being overly large or bulky. As such, it is easy to store them on your property for the duration of your rental period, which makes it easier to avoid permit applications and other inconveniences if you want to streamline the process. With standard rental periods of three days, we also give you plenty of time to fill your unit, so that you can create your own schedule and work around your office hours or other commitments.

Whether you rent a roll off dumpster for your San Francisco junk removal needs will ultimately be up to you. We don’t know exactly what’s best for your specific project, but we hope this information helps you make an informed choice so that you can clean up with as little fuss as possible. If you’re curious to learn more about easy junk removal, give us a call anytime during business hours. One of our pros will be happy to explain more about packing dumpsters, sorting their contents responsibly, or anything else that piques your curiosity.

5 Reasons to get a San Francisco Dumpster Rental

Are you thinking about a San Francisco dumpster rental? If you have substantial waste removal needs—or if you have an event or project coming up that will produce a significant amount of waste—then renting a dumpster may save you a lot of trips back and forth from your nearest trash or recycling facility. Bottom line, if you have more trash or recycling than you can fit in your weekly collection bins, then you can probably benefit from a dumpster rental.

San Francisco Dumpster RentalWith that said, here are five specific scenarios in which a San Francisco dumpster rental will come in handy:

  1. You are doing a home renovation

Home renovations are notoriously messy projects. While it’s fun to knock down walls with a sledgehammer, or to tear out that laminate flooring in the kitchen that you’ve always hated, those tasks are also going to leave you with a lot of refuse and nowhere to put it. Positioning a dumpster rental right out front in your driveway makes the project easier. In some cases, you or your contracting team will even be able to toss debris right out the windows and into the bin. Even if you have to carry bundles of old carpet or piles of removed flooring out to the bin, though, it’s still faster (and cleaner) than piling everything in your car and driving it to the trash or recycling plant.

When your bin is full (which will likely happen multiple times throughout your project), you can just call your dumpster rental company, and they’ll come pick it up, replace your bin with a new one, and carry your waste away. This process is easy and convenient and allows you and your team to focus on the renovation at hand rather than worrying about the logistics of waste disposal.

  1. You are moving

Perhaps your family is moving to a new house, or maybe your business is moving from one store or office location to a bigger one across town. No matter the nature of the move, a dumpster rental is always a useful thing to have. As humans, we tend to accumulate a lot of clutter over the years. Our homes fill up with boxes, papers, old toys, worn clothing, obsolete electronics, and other junk we don’t need. The same thing happens at offices or businesses—although not always with the same kind of junk. You probably don’t want to move this stuff to your new address, but sorting through it and figuring out how and where to get rid of it can be a hassle.

A rental dumpster expedites the process. When you find something in your closet, desk, or company storeroom that you don’t want, just drop it in the container. If you are worried about recyclables, that’s why you choose Junk King for your San Francisco dumpster rental. We sort through every bin and pull out items that can be repurposed, reused, or recycled—from textiles to electronics and appliances. With us, you get a sustainable waste disposal solution without having to sort painstakingly through everything you don’t want.

  1. You are doing spring cleaning

If you stay on top of your spring cleaning every year, you might be able to make do with your standard weekly pick-up trash and recycling bins. Let a few years go by, though, and you will be amazed at the density with which clutter accumulates. A dumpster rental makes it easy to take everything you don’t want and purge it from your home. If you are someone who struggles to get motivated for spring cleaning, the ease of having a dumpster on your premises where you can ditch all your unwanted items might just get you moving.

  1. You are undertaking a construction project

Building projects always produce their fair share of waste and debris. Whether you are undertaking a DIY shed building project in your backyard or spearheading a property development operation with your construction business, chances are you are going to need a dumpster rental or two. Having a place where you or your team can toss scraps of wood or carpet, packaging from building materials, screws, nails, roof tiles, and other construction debris will keep your worksite clean and save you lots of time.

Even if you have a small quantity of building refuse from a DIY project, there is a good chance that your usual garbage crew is not going to accept it. When you rent a dumpster, there are a lot fewer restrictions for what you can and cannot throw away—especially regarding item size. Since Junk King sorts through and pulls out most everything that is recyclable, we will make sure most of your building waste doesn’t just end up in a landfill somewhere.

  1. You are cleaning out your garage or basement

For a lot of people, the garage or basement is like a black hole. These are places where you store things “temporarily” because you don’t want them taking up space somewhere else. Usually, “temporarily” is just a buzzword, something we tell our families when we don’t want to deal with something or can’t bring ourselves to get rid of it just yet.

Unfortunately, the amount of junk in your garage or basement has probably just been compounding over time. Your garage could be a messy pile of old bicycles, busted yard tools, golf clubs and baseball bats you haven’t touched in a decade, and other junk you don’t need. The basement, meanwhile, is a haven for ratty old furniture, worn out sheets, broken musical instruments, and electronics that haven’t been functional since the last millennium.

Eventually, everyone seems to decide that it’s time for a blank slate. If you’ve reached that point with your garage or basement, then a rental dumpster can be a lifesaver. A lot of the stuff that ends up in garages or basements is large, unwieldy, and difficult to carry or transport. With a rental dumpster, you only need to move everything as far as your driveway. The company that rented the container will take it from there.

Dumpster Rental in San Francisco Why Green Rentals Matter

Often, when businesses or homeowners arrange for dumpster rental in San Francisco, they are somewhat pressed for time. They have a lot of junk to get rid of and only a short period in which to get rid of it. For instance, a business preparing to move to a new office location might rent a bin so that it can quickly dispose of desk clutter, unwanted furniture, old computer equipment, excess paper waste, cardboard shipping boxes, and more. Dumpster rentals are also common in home renovations when construction teams need to rip out drywall, flooring, carpeting, and other building materials to make way for the new.

Dumpster Rental San FranciscoUnfortunately, this time-sensitive approach to waste disposal does not promote good sustainable activity. Because of convenience, everything goes into the dumpster. No one spares much thought for recycling, even if a lot of what is being thrown away—from paper products to plastic refuse to metal building materials—is technically recyclable.

What Happens to Most Dumpster Refuse?

Most companies, as you might expect, are also not very concerned with recycling. They rent dumpsters as a quick, spacious, and convenient way for customers to clear out their junk. When a bin gets full, the waste removal company comes and picks it up, usually transporting the waste to the nearest landfill. Just like that, a vast amount of recyclable material ends up wasted and taking up space in landfills, instead of being repurposed for a different application.

It’s tough to fault dumpster rental providers for how they do business. While some businesses do offer recycling bins and trash bins, most companies looking for a dumpster rental just want one large bin where they can dispose of everything. It’s simpler, easier for everyone to remember, and costs less—and while rental companies could potentially sort through their collections and pull out recyclables, doing so is a time-consuming process. To maximize profits and get the most out of their staff, companies just take everything to the landfill.

An Alternative: A “Green” Dumpster Rental

At Junk King, we pride ourselves on being “America’s Greenest Junk Removal Service.” When it comes to dumpster rentals, we wanted businesses to have a third option, between “Throw everything in the trash” and “Pay twice as much for a trash dumpster and a recycling dumpster.” We realized that if there was ever going to be a competitive green waste disposal rental option, it had to be just as easy and affordable for customers as the non-green options were. The burden of staying green, in other words, had to fall on our shoulders instead of on our customers.

The service we offer today is the realization of that vision. Instead of taking everything to the landfill after picking up your full container, we take each dumpster to our recycling warehouse. There, we carefully sort through the trash, looking for recyclable materials that don’t belong in landfills. Metals, paper, furniture, appliances, clothing and textiles, computers and other e-waste, and more: these types of items or materials still have value and use. Some can be sent to recycling plants, while others can be cleaned up and donated to organizations that need them. By pulling these valuable goods out of the dumpsters and saving them from the landfill, Junk King does its part in protecting the environment.

Junk King doesn’t even use machines to automate the sorting process. Recyclable and reusable goods come in all different materials, shapes, and sizes. No machine on the planet can adequately identify what is and isn’t junk. Instead, Junk King personnel are responsible for sifting through dumpsters and saving treasures from oblivion. This human touch ensures the best sorting possible and guarantees that we send only actual “junk” to the junkyard.

Cutting Down America’s Waste Numbers

The United States is famous for its wastefulness. While people in the United States account for just 5% of the world’s total population, we also generate approximately one-third of the world’s total garbage. That statistic is bewildering enough as is, but some of the stats that hide within it are even more alarming.

Consider this: roughly half of the “garbage” that Americans throw away daily could be recycled, reused, or repurposed. Glass and plastic bottles; lengths of aluminum foil; cardboard boxes and other packaging; paper from work projects, school assignments, newspapers, magazines, and more. These materials frequently end up in the trash but would be far better used by going to recycling plants.

The waste adds up, too. Every three months, Americans junk enough aluminum to rebuild our nation’s entire commercial air fleet from the ground up. The other statistics and facts are just as shocking.

Going Green

The good news is that many businesses are waking up to just how much waste we are producing—and just how much that waste is impacting the environment. A slew of household name brands have made sustainability a core priority. Dell uses recycled materials in its computers and product packaging. The New Belgium Brewing Company reuses, recycles, or composts 75% of the waste it produces. Also, roughly 75% of the materials that Patagonia uses for its clothing and outdoor equipment is either recycled or organically sourced.

These initiatives aren’t happening in a vacuum. While many businesses are probably focusing on recycling and overall sustainability because they believe it is the right thing to do, there is also an economic factor at work. Thanks to the Internet, business practices are widely reported, shared, and discussed. Social media is incredibly effective at unmasking and exposing companies that rely on environmentally destructive or otherwise unsustainable methods. Many consumers are now learning how to vote with their dollars, turning away from these brands and instead opting for the ones that make sustainability a priority.

For businesses, the positive PR boost of sustainable initiatives should be enough to launch a green initiative. Obviously, these initiatives take time to devise and get underway. However, something as simple as choosing a green dumpster rental instead of a landfill-bound one is an easy and smart place to start. For home renovators or other consumers who don’t have brand optics to worry about, meanwhile, going green is merely a way to put their money where their mouth is and do what they are demanding brands to do.
