The Accidental Sofa Collection: Sofa Removal to the Rescue

Does your basement have an “interesting” array of seating options? Have mismatched old sofas made their way into spare bedrooms and guest quarters?

When it comes to outdated furniture, people tend to be surprisingly good about giving it the heave-ho. But there’s something about sofas and other large pieces that they never seem to leave the house. For one thing, they’re awkward and for another, they’re heavy. And it can be confusing figuring out how to dispose of them.

As far as we’re concerned, large sofa removal and mattress disposal are two of the bulky item jobs you should leave to the pros.

Fast & Easy Furniture Removal in Sonoma

If you have one, two, three, or more old sofas or large recliners ready for removal, it isn’t always as easy as hauling them own to the front curb. You’ll need to schedule an appointment and, depending on where you live, you may have to pay for subsequent pickups. Sonoma follows the Zero Waste initiative, but keep in mind they do not offer donation services. You’ll have to make those arrangements yourself. And many charity organizations do not accept sofas.

  • Old television and stereo consoles

5 Terrific Reasons to Donate Cell Phones

Sonoma County’s recycling laws are geared towards eliminating landfill disposal of electronics and other “universal waste” such as batteries, fluorescent lamps, and other devices that contain mercury, lead, cadmium, and copper. Section AB 2901(2004) Cell Phone Recycling specifically requires retailers who sell mobile phones to take back used ones for recycling. But many people don’t turn their old phones in, saving them “just in case.”

When you donate those unused cell phones, though, you can do a world of good. Junk King of Sonoma can pick up and donate all your discarded electronics, including phones, so you can feel good about doing your part for the environment and for others in need.

Why Donate Cell Phones

Donate Cell Phones It’s said that most people like to get rid of their current cell phone every two years or so, when a better model makes its appearance. Since globally more than 5 billion people own cell phones, that means an enormous number of discarded devices. In the U.S. alone, over 400,000 cell phones enter landfills or incinerators every day.

Donating, recycling, or repurposing old cell phones helps save energy, conserve natural resources, protect our waterways, and keeps both reusable and toxic materials out of local landfills.

  1. Donating just one cell phone saves enough energy to power a laptop for over 40 hours!
  2. If Americans recycled or donated those unused cell phones mentioned above, there would be enough energy saved to power more almost 25,000 homes for a year.
  3. Recycle 1 million cells phones and you can provide electricity to 185 households for a year.
  4. A pile of 1 million donated cell phones contains 75 pounds of gold, over 35,000 pounds of copper, and 775 pounds of silver.
  5. Toxic materials can also be recycled and reused, but if they make their way to a landfill, they contaminate the air, soil, and groundwater.

Garbage Pickup – How to Dispose of Large Volumes of Waste

Most weeks, it’s fairly simple to get rid of trash and debris in your normal garbage pickup. But there are times a special pickup is required and that’s when Junk King of Marin can step in.

Businesses and homeowners alike can require a large volume trash pickup service for a number of reasons:

  • Foreclosures
  • Tenant turnover
  • Inventory cleanout
  • Major spring cleaning or preparing for move or sale
  • Garbage exceeds weight limitations for municipal pickup

Garbage PickupIn Marin County, single-family homeowners get 3 carts for their monthly collection rate: one garbage (or landfill), one recycling, and one compostables. If you need anything over that, you’ll need to pay an increased rate. You’re not permitted to overfill your one allotted cart, either, or you’ll get charged for that, too.

Junk King of Marin offers a great solution for volume trash pickup that saves you the stress and expense of doing it yourself. We’re committed to making large order garbage pickup an easy and pleasant experience for all our customers.

Bulk Item or Regular Garbage?

We’ve all been there. “ Is this garbage considered a bulk item or is it trash?” If you’re not sure, you must call your municipal refuse management department to find out. But chances are good that if you’re questioning whether it can be picked up in your regular trash service, it probably can’t.

When Marin County conducted a waste characterization study, it found less than half of what people put in the garbage belongs there. For many years, people just assumed anything and everything could be put out for trash pickup. It’s just garbage after all, right? But the truth is, it’s regular household trash that goes to incinerators and landfills, but other bulky items and recyclables that are typically part of large volume garbage situations need to be handled in a different way.

The Best Volume Garbage Pickup in Marin

Junk King’s bulk garbage pickup service is an efficient, safe, and eco-friendly way to make the process an easy one for you. We do the heavy lifting, and we make sure your garbage is disposed of according to municipal regulations.

And for businesses that require larger scale garbage pickup on a regular basis, Junk King of Marin can help with that, too!

Our friendly and experienced teams are known for their high work ethic and dedication to community. They respect you and your property, show up when they say they will, and are fully licensed and insured. Why wouldn’t you want to use them for your large volume garbage pickup?

Yard Waste Removal Causing You Headaches? Call Junk King!

Crossing all of that yard work off of your list sure feels good. But what do you do now that you have a half-dozen garbage bins full of yard waste and need yard waste removal pronto? Does your local municipality even pick that kind of stuff up?

The Problem with Local Pickup 

Yard Waste RemovalThe truth is that many municipalities put limits on how much yard waste they’ll pick up, and yard waste itself can surprisingly cause a lot of issues for the environment when disposed of improperly.

The Sierra Club found that improperly disposed of yard waste can cause leachate and methane gas to escape into the atmosphere or seep into the soil and do damage there as well. None of that is too hot for the environment.

Fortunately, Junk King is committed to turning yard waste into manufactured topsoil and compost whenever and wherever possible. Considering that an estimated quarter-billion tons of municipal solid waste is generated every year in the United States that’s very reassuring.

The thing that might catch some people by surprise is that two-thirds of that quarter-billion tons of municipal solid waste is what’s known as organic waste, which is another name for yard waste or green waste.

Yard Waste Removal: Does Junk King Take? 

The green waste and composting experts say that by weight grass is easily the biggest share of yard waste removal.

It also turns out that leaves are the biggest share of yard waste removal when you measure things by volume. Anyone who’s tried to stomp down leaves into one of those flimsy black plastic bags knows this to be the case.

The truth is that yard waste is composed of a whole lot of things – grass, leaves, brush, soil, and landscaping debris. Junk King takes all of that stuff plus stumps, fencing, firewood, lumber, and old window frames.

Since Junk King takes just about every kind of yard waste imaginable, you can even have your shed demolished, broken down, and taken off your hands. Junk King recycles, reuses, and donates wherever possible to give new life to no-longer-needed or discarded stuff.

With an old shed, for instance, it might be the case that components like the shed’s wood, plastic, frames, and plasterboard can be put to another use down the road. That’s a lot better than this stuff winding up in a landfill, which would likely be the final destination for yard waste if it goes through municipal pickup.

Go with Junk King for Responsible Disposal 

Junk King is America’s greenest junk removal service because of its commitment to reduce, reuse, and recycle wherever possible.

For yard waste in Sonoma, you might find Junk King’s online pricing tool especially helpful because it lets you get a feel for how much a job will cost before scheduling your appointment.

Unlike something like a foreclosure cleanout, you can usually size up yard waste pretty quickly and get an idea of how much truck space you’ll need going forward. On that note, know that you can always text Junk King a photo of your yard waste at (737) 888-5865 to get things squared away sooner.

The most accurate way to get an estimate for your upcoming yard waste removal, though, is with no-obligation, on-site pricing.

That’s where a Junk King staff member comes out to your home or business and determines how much the job will cost and what kind of tools and manpower will be required to get it done. Other ways to stay in touch are through calling Junk King at (888) 888 – JUNK (5865) or contacting us online. Yard waste removal has never been easier.

Hoarder Help: Simple Steps for Cleaning and Clearing a Hoarder’s House

If you have hoarding tendencies or your loved one is affected by this problem, it might be challenging to clean up and organize the house. In general, hoarding causes people to have difficulties throwing anything away. Consequently, the house will be filled with useless items and cluttered with insurmountable messes. Under ideal circumstances, it is advisable to consult a cleaning and junk hauling service for hoarder help. However, you can also tackle the problem using a hands-on approach if you have time. Here are practical steps to help you clean and clear a hoarder’s house.

Establish a Sorting Plan

Hoarder HelpIt is important to establish criteria for sorting out the items in the house when providing hoarder help. Hoarding often leads to the retention of damaged, useless and unnecessary appliances, clothes, tools, mail and other similar materials. If the unusable items  are not eliminated, it will be difficult to clean and clear the home. An ideal sorting plan should help the people helping know how to identify junk. For instance, inoperable old appliances and old mail can be considered trash while items used on a regular basis can be protected.

Acquire Protective Gear

The process of cleaning a hoarder’s house can be dangerous. More often than not, the rooms will be filled with items, making it difficult to navigate the space. Also, the accumulation of junk makes it difficult to keep the house clean. It is not uncommon for the home to have a lot of dust, pests, mold and mildew. Therefore, when providing hoarder help, it is advisable to acquire appropriate protective gear to avoid injuries. Disposable gloves, safety goggles and a dust mask are essential for preventing contamination from dust and grime. Sturdy work shoes are also useful for keeping the feet safe. In addition, if there is danger of falling objects, you should wear a hard hat.

Stage the Items and Sort

You can begin by emptying out the rooms and placing the items in a chosen staging area once you have donned your protective gear. An ideal staging area would be a free open space in the outdoors where all the hoarder’s items can be temporarily placed. Ensure that the chosen stage does not block exits in case of an emergency. Once the items are in place, you can begin sorting everything according to the criteria determined earlier. Separate junk from useful and salvageable items. When emptying the rooms, it is advisable to begin with the one closest to the door. This will allow for easier navigation when clearing the further rooms. A good waste removal plan is essential when providing hoarder help. All the items determined to be junk will need to be disposed of correctly.

Finally, you can begin decluttering, organizing and cleaning the house. Identify any items which might have been overlooked or brought in after sorting and remove them. Then, organize each room in the best way before cleaning the surfaces of each room thoroughly. Reach out to us for consultation.

Simple but Essential Tips for Managing Your Construction Waste

If you are planning on demolishing, building or renovating your property, you should establish a plan for dealing with construction waste. The poor management of this type of waste on your worksite could lead to unnecessarily high removal expenses, sudden worker injuries and federal law complications. In addition, it is essential to note that without a management plan, the efficiency of your construction work will be compromised. Here are critical guidelines to help you manage the waste while minimizing costs and inefficiencies.

Choose Deconstruction

Construction WasteConstruction-related waste can be reduced before collection and disposal. Minimizing the materials will reduce the total costs of handling and disposing. In addition, reduced waste reduces the implications of the building work on the environment. If you are planning on demolishing a structure, consider deconstruction instead. Deconstruction involves the careful dismantling of a building. The resulting materials can be reused when rebuilding. If you do not want to use the materials in your structure, you can sell to interested parties.

Sort the Materials

You should think about segregating your construction waste before collection and disposal. Sorting the materials can help you minimize the management costs. Ideally, the materials should be separated into recyclable and non-recyclable groups. The former waste can be collected by a recycling company, eliminating the costs of disposal. Moreover, this action reduces your carbon footprint. The reduced volume of the general waste which cannot be recycled will be cheaper and easier to dispose after the sorting and segregation process.

Plan for Collection Points

Efficient management of waste on your building site requires a plan for collection. Therefore, you must have multiple collection points for the waste whether you are demolishing, building or remodeling. The collection points should be in a place that can be accessed by the construction workers and the waste disposal company. The containers should not be in a place where they will disrupt the movement of workers and interfere with construction. In addition, the collection points must never block emergency exits in case of a workplace incident.

Consider Hazardous Waste

Your construction site might produce hazardous waste materials. These need to be handled with care because they can cause harm to the environment if disposed of carelessly. In addition, there are federal regulations on the disposal of dangerous items such as asbestos-containing materials, lead-containing items, aerosol cans, paint and mercury-containing fixtures. It is advisable to check on the legal guidelines outlined for the disposal of hazardous construction waste. Consult your chosen waste collection and disposal company for guidance on the best practices.

Reliable Construction Waste Management

Waste management on your construction site should be handled by professional with experience in the field. While it is possible for the work to be carried by your contractors, experts are more efficient and reliable for this process. Moreover, if your construction workers have to conduct waste collection and disposal tasks, their valuable time will be wasted, and your project will be delayed unnecessarily. If you would like to learn more about professional waste collection, consult our experienced personnel at Junk King Marin.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.
