Here’s What You Need to Know About Household Chemical Waste

Household chemical waste comes in a lot of different forms. Oil-based latex paints, wood varnish, and garden chemicals like pesticides and fertilizer could all be considered household waste because they pose a danger to your health, and even public health, if improperly disposed of.

Household Chemical Waste Can’t be Flushed, Abandoned, or Thrown Away 

Chemical Waste That means that you can’t simply flush household chemical waste down the toilet and call it a day. Something as seemingly innocuous as tile cleaner or carpet cleaner could wind up doing real damage to the environment and local water systems if flushed away or poured down the drain.

At the same time, many personal electronics like computers, monitors, and old cell phones contain heavy metals like lead and mercury that make them dangerous to throw in with the normal trash. The same thing goes for light bulbs and thermometers, which could also contain mercury.

The problem with household chemical waste is that it can leach into the soil if left just anywhere, and it can certainly get into local water systems if flushed down the toilet. For that reason, you need to take extra precautions when disposing of a lot of the stuff in your garage: gasoline, motor oil, antifreeze, and even pool chemicals require special treatment.

Whether you’re talking about stuff in the garage or cleaning products in the cupboard, you’re talking about household hazardous waste. Although Junk King doesn’t take hazardous waste, you can call on Junk King for most other kinds of garage cleanouts: tires, books, boxes, windows, and rubbish.

Pouring out a household cleaner in the regular trash could endanger the health of local sanitation workers, and flushing that same cleaner down the toilet might contaminate your septic tank. In fact, the state of California has for over a decade banned folks from tossing fluorescent bulbs and batteries in the trash because both are considered “universal” waste.

Steps to Reduce Household Chemical Waste 

Both Junk King and the CalRecycle are committed to making it easier to responsibly dispose of household hazardous waste and universal waste. That said, there are steps you can take to reduce the amount of chemical waste in the first place.

The Environmental Protection Agency recommends reducing your purchases of cleaning products that contain hazardous materials. The EPA also says that it would be a good idea to use environmentally friendly products (e.g., greener laundry and dishwasher detergents) or even using DIY alternatives to bug spray where possible.

At the same time, you can often accomplish the same thing as, say, drain-clog removers (a.k.a., Drano) or furniture polish do with much less of a negative impact on the environment. For example, a plunger and plumber’s snake (auger) can unclog drains. Lemon juice, vegetable oil, and a towelette can also give your wood furniture a nice, clean sheen.

As America’s greenest junk removal service, Junk King takes and recycles and/or donates all kinds of items, including electronic waste. Though electronic waste, or e-waste, often contains hazardous materials like lead and mercury, e-waste is typically considered universal waste. Junk King actually takes e-waste like computers, monitors, and printers.

Junk King Takes E-waste…Not Hazardous Waste! 

That’s important because old cathode ray tube televisions and monitors contain lead, which can pollute the air, soil, and water if improperly disposed of. The thing to remember is that Junk King accepts electronic waste, but doesn’t take hazardous waste like paint, gasoline, pool chemicals, and household cleaners.

For virtually everything else, Junk King can help. Call on Junk King for foreclosure cleanouts, office cleanouts, furniture and appliance removal, construction waste removal, and yard waste removal.

5 Great Reasons to Hire Us for Debris Removal

Yard and construction debris are two of the most common types of debris removal jobs we do. Yet we know that debris can be found in any area of a residential or commercial property. That’s why we offer debris removal services that cover all the bases:

Junk King Sonoma offers the area’s most professional level of junk removal services. We’re fully committed to making the debris removal experience an easy and pleasant one for all our customers.

Sonoma’s #1 Debris Removal Service

Debris Removal Clearing away piles of debris is no easy task. Here are five good reasons you should call Junk King and make it a stress-free chore.

  1. Safety. Construction debris in particular is full of sharp materials, rusty nails, toxic waste, and other potential safety hazards. Hiring a professional debris removal company provides the peace of mind you seek. You can rest easy knowing your family or employees are safe from all types of dangerous debris.
  2. Convenience. Debris piles up fast. By the time you’re ready to haul it away using your own vehicle you might spend the entire day traveling to and from the dump. With a debris removal company like Junk King Sonoma, all you need do is schedule a convenient pickup time and your debris will be removed in a way that doesn’t take over your schedule.
  3. Responsibility. Eco-friendliness matters more now than ever, so it’s important your debris is properly recycled, repurposed, or disposed of. Want to ensure your debris is removed in the most environmentally safe way? Junk King’s commitment to eco-friendly practices is second to none in the whole of Sonoma County. We’ve partnered with a number of area organizations and recycling centers to accept any items that qualify as recyclable or able to be repurposed. We love doing our part to reduce the amount of waste that ends up in local landfills!
  4. More Space. While it may be easier to let debris pile up until a job is done, it can also make your home or commercial site an eyesore to the neighborhood. Having a professional service periodically remove debris from your site helps you easily maintain the area and have more of it to work with!
  5. Reduced Costs. You may think it’s less expensive to haul away your own debris, but debris removal involves a lot of hidden costs you may not have considered: fuel prices, crew wages, and dump charges can quickly add up. And it’ll cost you even more if you have to transport debris to numerous collection sites. When you choose Junk King Sonoma

Wouldn’t you rather have our experienced crews take care of all the lifting and hauling so you can sit back and relax? When you decide to rid your home or commercial site of unwanted debris, our team is here to make it happen in a professional and efficient way.

Hoarder Help is Finally Here with Junk King

The really interesting thing about hoarding is that people do it for all kinds of different reasons. Some people hoard photo albums, jewelry, old CD cases, and other items that they deem valuable.

Another person might hoard because something fits a perceived need or utility in their lives. The “I might use it one day” syndrome that everyone is probably guilty of to some extend.

The truth is that everyone saves a few sentimental pictures and knickknacks or has a collection of items related to their hobby. That’s perfectly normal. If you play golf, for instance, having a few spare clubs in the closet typically isn’t a problem.

Hoarders tend to save way more than the average person, though, and fill entire rooms with items that they think could come in handy some day (e.g., stacks of magazines).

Hoarding for sentimental and utility reasons are both pretty common. But people also hoard for aesthetic reasons and believe that something is too beautiful to throw out.

A Mountain of Hoarded Stuff? Hoarder Help? Call Junk King 

Hoarder Help Six percent of Americans, or about 19 million people, are actual hoarders, but a lot of people keep things past their prime thinking they’ll need this or that one day. The truth is that old cell phones and phone books from ten years ago are rarely revisited.

If your living spaces are getting too cluttered and affecting your ability to comfortably navigate your own home, then you could probably benefit from taking a hard look around and considering hoarder help.

It turns out that for hoarders the act of hoarding actually relieves anxiety, but it also produces anxiety because now they have more things to worry about. An inability to discard items and collecting useless stuff like junk mail might be signs of hoarding.

  • Junk King will recycle and selectively donate items

Junk King has its own proprietary trucks that are now 20% bigger. And as North America’s greenest junk removal service, Junk King makes an average of eight trips to Junk King’s warehouse hub per day to sort out discarded items for recycling purposes.

Junk King is here to provide hoarder help and keep as many items as possible out of landfills and into the hands of charities, recycling programs, and people who can possibly reuse things like well-maintained furniture and functional electronics like old televisions.

Hoarders frequently pile up outdated magazines and newspapers. Fortunately, a lot of what hoarders hoard is recyclable. Junk King can come to your home, or the home of a loved one, and haul away recyclable paper and plastic items.

Hoarders will even collect things like magazines, phone books, and manuals thinking that those might come in handy one day. Perhaps, but in the meantime they’re likely to clog up the house. Fortunately, paper and plastic items as well as many glass items can be hauled away by Junk King and responsibly recycled.

Junk King is Compassionate, Helpful and Nonjudgmental 

There’s a lot of comfort in knowing that Junk King has helped hoarders before and has garnered thousands of five-star reviews throughout the years. Junk King’s staff is dedicated to only throwing out those items that you’re ready to part ways with.

For millions of hoarders, years of accumulated junk can be embarrassing. Realize that Junk King is here to offer compassionate, nonjudgmental help in carefully removing unwanted items.

If you know that a friend or loved one is suffering from an actual hoarding disorder, then consider having a professional organizer with a specialty in dealing with hoarding disorders present during your appointment with Junk King. Book online here.

Keep the Water and Land Clean with Responsible E-waste Disposal

You probably think that it would be a bad idea to throw away $60 million in gold and silver every year, right? Well, that’s how much gold and silver is literally thrown away by Americans annually in the form of electronic waste.

About half of Americans (44%) say that they update their cell phones as soon as the new version comes out, which for most cell phone companies is about every two years.

These old cell phones contain precious metals like gold and silver that get discarded. Responsible disposal of electronic waste is about more than recovering precious metals, however. Responsible e-waste disposal matters in terms of keeping local water and soil clean and toxic waste out of landfills.

Here’s a statistic that brings it all home: electronic waste in the form of old cell phones, computer monitors, and televisions is only 2% of the trash in landfills, but a whopping 70% of the toxic waste in local landfills. That’s a serious problem.

The Solution? Junk King’s E-waste Disposal Services 

E-waste Disposal Less than 15% of e-waste is currently recycled the right way. Whether you’re a business with leftover computer monitors or homeowner with an old printer or two, Junk King is committed to hauling your electronic waste away and responsibly recycling what can be cleaned up and reused.

Junk King Marin tries to embody many of the same principles as CalRecycle’s Electronic Waste Management programs.

California created the Electronic Waste Recycling Act of 2003 and the Covered Electronic Waste (CEW) recycling program in order to summon the resources and infrastructure to handle millions of tons of electronic waste.

In total, these initiatives have already generated over two billion pounds (more than 1 million tons) worth of recovered electronic waste.

What Junk King Takes 

Junk King takes all kinds of electronic waste: copy machines, shredders, computer monitors, old laptops and desktops, televisions, and cell phones.

Although these kinds of devices can contain precious metals like gold and silver and other semi-precious metals like palladium, they can also contain toxic substances.

Two such substances – cadmium and lead – can harm local ecosystems and pose a significant threat to public health if not disposed of responsibly.

Fortunately, e-waste disposal is getting better in the United States since nearly half of computers are recycled. More statewide investment and popular awareness of the importance of recycling has meant more folks calling on Junk King for responsible e-waste disposal.

Repair, Donate, or Recycle 

When it comes to e-waste disposal, though, you actually have three basic options: repair, donate, or recycle.

Having Junk King haul away your electronic waste is the best option, and clearly better than ensuring it winds up at a landfill by throwing it in the trash, if you can’t repair or donate it.

Sometimes the technology in your old cell phone is completely outdated and you need an upgrade right away. In that case, why not use a service like the partnership between goodwill and Dell, Dell Reconnect, to lend new life to your old electronic devices?

Verizon goes one step further by offering you the option of recycling your old tablets and cell phones. And believe it or not, the Make-A-Wish Foundation even has its own program to get your gently used, though no longer needed or wanted, electronic devices (computers, MP3 players, etc.) into the hands of kids recovering from treatment.

Responsible e-waste disposal helps keep local water systems and land clean of toxic substances, conserves natural resources, and might even help prevent climate change.

Contact Junk King, America’s greenest junk removal service, to have your old devices responsibly hauled away and recycled.

Make the Call for Professional Hauling Services: They’ll Bring the Manpower, Truck, and Moving Equipment You’ll Need

Hauling your own junk can come with hidden risks and spiraling costs.When you go with professional hauling services, though, everything from the labor and the truck to offsite removal and processing, gas, and insurance are all worked into the price.

Junk King now has trucks that feature 20% more volume at a lower price and is proud to offer free written estimates that beat comparable written estimates from competing hauling services’ companies.

The most accurate way to get an estimate is with onsite pricing. That said, booking online at Junk King offers you a $20 discount and you can also text or call to get the hauling services you need.

Trust the Experience and Versatility of Professional Junk Haulers 

Hauling ServicesTaking a lawn chair out to the curb is one thing, but what about when you’re trying to get rid of a hot tub in your backyard, king-size mattress, or seven-piece furniture set in your den? What do you do then?

Even if you have the tools to get started, you might need to call around for friends willing to take time off work to come out and help. You might also need to rent a truck and decide where to take it all.

Then there’s the chance that you get injured because you’re trying to haul a couch or mattress down a steep flight of stairs or using a saw to cut away a backyard hot tub. It can happen easier than you think.

  • Moving Injuries Happen All the Time

Thousands of people injure themselves every year moving because they don’t take simple steps to avoid getting injured or because they’ve underestimated how heavy something is.

As any professional junk hauler knows, you want to bend at the knees, avoid twisting, create a wide base with the legs, and actually feel like you’re lifting more with the legs than your back.

By not having the right moving equipment – dollies, sliders, blankets, moving straps, protective gloves, protective eyewear, and steel-toe boots – you risk taking on the most common moving injuries.

Getting your fingers or toes caught between a heavy object and an immovable surface isn’t hard to do if you’re not used to lifting that kind of weight.

So many folks think that they’ll save a few bucks by going it alone and fail to consider how risky moving something heavy is or how much time and resources a given job will take. Don’t take the chance.

Junk King has the manpower and resources to get the job done right the first time.

Professional Hauling Services on Your Schedule 

Getting your own rental truck, shoring up the resources, and finding out how to responsibly dispose of all of your junk can be incredibly time consuming and stressful.

For heavy lifting (furniture, dressers, old televisions, and yard waste), tricky jobs (cutting out and removing a hot tub), or jobs that are frankly intimidating (foreclosure clean outs) you can depend on Junk King’s timely hauling services.

Junk King makes it simple by dropping by at a  time of your choosing and calling 15 minutes before arrival to make sure that you’re ready.

As a full-service hauling services’ company, Junk King also has a big warehouse to take all of your stuff to for sorting. That means that you won’t have to take multiple trips to the landfill, goodwill, recycling center, and/or charity for donations.

Virtually the only hauling services that Junk King doesn’t do involve hazardous waste. Construction and demolition debris, furniture, yard waste, e-waste, and just about everything else is fair game and can make it into the Junk King trucks.

Professional Furniture Removal Starts with One Call

Furniture removal is one of those things that sounds like a piece of cake – what could be easier than moving a couch? – until you actually try to move a few bulky pieces of furniture to the curb or nearby dumpster.

First, there’s the fact that you’re probably going to need some help. Calling on friends and family to help with furniture removal is certainly an option, but what if something gets scratched? What if people can’t make it?

That’s a lot of stress. For many, furniture removal comes a time when they’re trying to downsize, repurpose an old room, or get a move underway. Who needs the added pressure of renting a dumpster, truck, and telephoning the whole neighborhood for help?

Make One Call for Furniture Removal 

Furniture Removal The professional movers at Junk King know exactly what to do with outdated or otherwise unusable furniture. Even though certain upholstered pieces and mattresses can’t always make it to the landfill, they can usually be responsibly recycled or donated.

Having the wooden frame of your bed recycled and your mattress donated or responsibly discarded is really the way to go. Old mattresses can carry dust and other allergens and lack the right support.

Old mattresses are also hard to deal with at the landfill because they don’t crush like regular garbage and can actually clog machinery they’re so awkward to do away with. And who knows whether your municipal garbage pickup can take a lot of bulk items?

Eighty percent of your old mattress can be recycled, and California has now mandated recycling old mattresses with a $10.50 consumer fee at time of purchase. For getting rid of your old mattress, though, or sofas, couches, sofa beds, and chairs that have lasted past their prime, schedule a furniture removal appointment with Junk King. Instead of ringing all of your friends for furniture removal, make one call to Junk King.

Professional movers take a lot of precautions, but they also have liability and property insurance in case anything does go wrong. They also have the right equipment to efficiently get it done right the first time.

Relocating or Growing Your Business? Call Junk King 

Junk King also helps commercial clients get rid of office furniture, cubicles, desks, and filing cabinets. If you’re ever tried lifting up a filing cabinet on your own – not recommended! – you know herculean a task it can be.

A steel, four-drawer cabinet weighs about 150 pounds, and the same one filled with paper is about 450 pounds. Even if you’ve had your Wheaties that morning, a few hundred pounds is really taking a risk. Get a professional to haul away clunky tool cabinets, armoires, bookcases, tables, and chairs.

Maybe you’re a strong guy reading this and thinking that you can handle any kind of furniture removal project that comes your way. Perhaps, but have you figured in the cost? Furniture removal usually means renting a truck or trailer and taking time out from work to haul everything away to a landfill or recycling center. The landfill, in turn, might charge a fee for taking so many bulky items.

Junk King is a convenient alternative since all you have to do is call or book online and either text a picture of the situation or describe the pieces that you’re thinking about having hauled away. Businesses should call as well to have desks, cubicles, old appliances (e.g., printers) and other kinds of e-waste taken off their hands.

Debris Removal in Sonoma Just Got Easier

Getting your yard in great shape and entertaining guests is one of the best parts of owning your own home. Although it takes a lot of work to get there, regular landscaping and debris removal can get you off on the right foot.

Routine and Seasonal Debris Removal 

Debris Removal Yard waste and debris removal can seem pretty daunting when you’re staring down fallen branches, an old jungle gym or hot tub that doesn’t see much use these days, and hundreds of pounds of waterlogged lumber. Who’s got the time?

The fact is that Junk King can schedule you for weekly, monthly, seasonal, or one-off debris removal projects. Whatever works best for you and your schedule. But sometimes the unexpected strikes: Junk King can help you clean up and remove fallen trees and large branches following a storm as well.

Other kinds of yard and debris removal are more predictable. You can schedule weekly yard waste removal for grass clippings, weeds, and branches after your weekly landscaping or arrange to have your leaves picked up on a seasonal basis.

Junk King is also committed to helping business responsibly dispose of construction waste. The Environmental Protection Agency says that over a half-billion tons of construction and demolition debris is generated in the United States every year.

That’s twice the amount of all of the municipal solid waste generated by millions of homeowners every year in the US. This all underscores how important it is to responsibly dispose of and, where possible, recycle things like concrete, gypsum drywall, asphalt, metals, and salvageable building components like doors and certain hard-to-manufacture plumbing parts.

Junk King can ensure that your next home improvement project or office renovation is friendly to the environment by reusing and recycling debris and keeping it out of landfills. For instance, did you know that wood cutoffs can be used as mulch or that brick and masonry can make a serviceable driveway bedding?
the complete summer cleaning guide

Those are facts that you learn when you’ve helped literally thousands of clients with debris removal, yard waste removal projects, and foreclosure cleanouts.

Junk King is Committed to Going Green 

What you might not know is that Junk King has received the Super Service Award from Angie’s List and remains the go-to yard waste and debris removal service for thousands of homeowners, condo associations, and businesses nationwide.

Another thing to realize is there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to debris removal. Whether you’re doing a small home renovation or overseeing a larger construction and demolition project, you can lower the amount of waste that makes its way to landfills and lower your carbon footprint by going with a green debris removal service.

Junk King helps homeowners and businesses responsibly dispose of, recycle, or donate construction and demolition debris wherever possible. The concrete that too often makes it way from a dumpster to a landfill can actually be recycled and used to make new roads and buildings.
the do you really need it checklist

Well-maintained carpet that’s removed intact from old bedrooms and offices for a renovation can also be donated to a nonprofit and count as a tax deduction. Organizations like Habitat for Humanity, which rebuild homes in disaster- or poverty-stricken areas, eagerly accept well-maintained carpeting and flooring for their ongoing projects.

In keeping with the Environmental Protection Agency’s Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle program, you might even consider reusing the old wood from dismantled cabinetry for other projects. And instead of smashing up old drywall sheets, you could try keeping them intact for creating new interior walls around your home or office.

Debris removal doesn’t have to be complicated: Call, text or book online with Junk King.

Make DIY Project Cleanup Easier with a Dumpster Rental in Sonoma

While planning a big home improvement, you probably envision what you’ll be creating—not the waste that will pile up at your feet. Between the demolition debris and packaging materials, there’s a good chance that you will run out of space in your kitchen trash can. That’s why a dumpster rental in Sonoma comes into play.

Think about preparing Thanksgiving dinner. If you clean some dishes while preparing the meal, your prep space stays clean and you can relax after dessert without facing a huge mess. Junk King can make your DIY projects go more smoothly with our dumpster rental in Sonoma County.

How Much Trash Does a Remodel Produce?

Dumpster Rental The answer to this question will vary, of course, but there are a few questions to consider. Junk King can help you estimate the volume of debris. Even better, our dumpster rental in Sonoma has pricing based on how much of the container you will, so you won’t overpay!

Ask yourself when considering a dumpster rental in Sonoma:

  • Are you removing tile, flooring, or drywall? The old stuff will be larger in volume than the new stuff because it won’t be neatly packed.
  • Are you clearing yard debris to build a deck? You can easily go beyond what yard waste bags can handle if there’s dirt and rocks to remove.
  • What kinds of packaging do your materials come in? Take a look at the hardware store if you can—there might be styrofoam blocks, foam packing sheets, plastic-coated cardboard, and other materials not eligible for residential recycling. Get a dumpster rental in Sonoma from Junk King, your local recycling-based junk removal company.
  • Do you need to throw away appliances and hardware? Sinks, toilets, cabinet doors, countertops, window frames, and other large debris should go in a dumpster.

Sleep Easy with Professional Mattress Disposal

After a long day of work nothing quite compares to slipping off into sleep on a comfortable mattress. How clean is your mattress really, though, and is mattress disposal something that you need to consider?

The truth is that mattresses have been called a breeding ground for all kinds of harmful bacteria. An average mattress – around 1,500 square feet – can collect dozens of pounds of dust every single year as well as mold, microbes, and fungi. Yuck!

The Sleep Council recommends to people that they consider mattress disposal and replacing their old mattress with a new one about every eight to ten years. Your mattress gets less comfortable and loses its support over time in addition to collecting a lot of nasty stuff.

Mattress Disposal That’s Safe, Quick, and Effective 

Mattress DisposalProfessional mattress disposal revolves around your schedule and remains the safest way to get rid of cumbersome mattresses. The pros at Junk King can whisk your mattress away in their company truck; your municipal trash service probably can’t say as much.

The state of California was actually the third state in the country to implement a mattress recovery and recycling effort for old mattresses. Junk King is committed to partnering with local recycling efforts to keep old mattresses in circulation in any way possible.

Old mattresses are much more recyclable than most people presume – between 85% and 95% of your old mattresses components can be recycled and given new life. As estimated twenty million retired mattresses wind up at incinerators and landfills every year in the United States, and that number represents a huge waste of resources!

Junk King’s mattress disposal experts realize that mattresses contain recyclable components like steel, wood, cotton, and foam. The natural fibers that your old mattress is made out of can be cleaned and repurposed, and the foam of your old mattress can be turned into carpeting material for someone else.

 Mattress Disposal: You Have Options 

When it comes to eco-friendly mattress disposal, you have more options that you probably think. Instead of renting a truck and going it alone, why not have your old mattress taken off your hands and given to a local charity, homeless shelter, or thrift store that would be happy to take it?

Even though the Sleep Council says that you should get a new mattress about every eight years or so, you might be surprised at how much new life you can give an old mattress with a mattress topper or comforter.

the complete summer cleaning guide

Call or email Junk King and find out how you can go about recycling your old mattress or making sure that it gets into someone else’s home and provides the foundation for a few more years of restful sleep. You’ll sleep easy knowing you’re doing the right thing and keeping 95% recyclable material out of a landfill.

Private companies, non-profits, and eco-friendly mattress disposal companies like Junk King have actually jumped in to fill a void in the industry: often neither your mattress manufacturer nor your municipality will remove and safely recycle your mattress for you.

the do you really need it checklist

A good recycling plant - and there are plenty in California - can recycle 90% or more of your old mattress. Many hospitals take aged, yet still clean and well-kept, mattresses too.

The convenient thing is that you can do the right thing and go about mattress disposal in an eco-friendly way simply by booking a mattress disposal appointment with Junk King. Why risk injury or worry about how you’re going to get a clunky mattress down a flight of stairs. Call, text, or book online today for mattress disposal on your schedule.
