Is It Time to Recycle Your Appliance?

Appliance Recycling At Junk King, we’re ready to help you recycle your old appliance in a safe and responsible manner, but how do you know when it’s time to get rid of your appliance? The right time for appliance recycling depends on many different factors that are different for each type of appliance. Whether your appliance needs frequent repairs or you’re just ready for the latest and greatest model, we’ll save you time and energy by doing all the heavy lifting and transport. Here are some of the appliances that we recycle at Junk King Sonoma:

  • Air Conditioners – Old, inefficient air conditioners can waste a lot of electricity, so you may want to replace yours if it’s more than 20 years old. We can either help you donate your AC unit or make sure the parts, including the compressor, condenser coils, and electronic components, get reused or recycled for their raw materials.
  • Dishwashers – Dishes that don’t get clean, leaking, and loud noises are just some of the signs that it might be time to recycle your dishwasher. If you just want to upgrade your existing dishwasher for a newer and fancier model, we can help you donate the old one to someone that needs it.
  • Refrigeration Units – Both refrigerators and freezers may be ready to recycle if they are no longer able to hold the right temperature in an efficient manner. Many of the parts and materials may be appropriate for reuse, and we’ll dispose of the waste material, including any ozone-depleting substances, appropriately.
  • Lawnmowers – Some high-quality mowers are designed to last a lifetime, but others only last a few years or a decade. If your lawnmower doesn’t cut the way it used to or is no longer reliable, we’ll recycle it for you.
  • Stoves and Ovens – The most common reason our customers want to recycle their stoves and ovens is for a kitchen remodeling project. In many cases, we can help your stove and oven find a new home so that you can make an upgrade. We know these are very bulky and heavy appliances, and we can do the hard work for you.
  • Microwaves – Non-working microwaves are considered electronic waste which we can take care of for you. If you’re replacing a working unit, we’ll take your microwave and donate to someone who needs it.
  • Water Heaters – Whether your water heater can no longer keep up with the demands of your growing family or has stopped working altogether, it may be time for appliance recycling. These units can be big and bulky and unsuitable for the dumpster, but we can take it.
  • Washing Machines and Dryers – Large advancements have been made in the efficiency of washers and dryers, so you may want to recycle your old units even if they still work. We can also help you recycle your washer or dryer if it’s leaking, noisy, constantly in need of repairs, or completely broken.

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?

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.

Disk Erasure Before Computer Disposal

There is a right and a wrong way to handling computer disposal.  Right now there are millions of computers collecting cobwebs all across America. You might have a few relics from the 1990s at your home office or crowding out your office storage spaces right now even.

Computer Disposal: Things You Should Know 

It seems pretty easy: Just chuck that old computer into the garbage bin and watch it get whisked away with the rest of your weekly pickup.

Hang on, though, don’t old computers contain a lot of heavy metals and personal information that – if it fell into the wrong hands – could jeopardize your future? The answer: Absolutely.

  • Computers as E-waste

Computers are actually a form of electronic waste along with things like batteries and cell phones. With the high rate of tech turnover these days there’s more and more e-waste making its way to landfills and recycling centers.

We really have to be careful in how we dispose this stuff because a lot of our appliances contain harmful heavy metals like mercury, cadmium and maybe even lead. When household appliances and electronics become e-waste we should really be responsibly recycling these things rather than heaping them up on the curb for weekly pickup.

The problem, as we’re coming to realize, is that computers that don’t make it back into circulation and instead wind up at landfills actually pose an environmental hazard.

Some of the heavy metals that are housed in computers can eventually make their way into the Disk-Erasure-Before-Computer-Disposal-junk-Kng-Sonoma-CAsoil and local water supply, which obviously isn’t good for anybody.

  • Old Computers and Personal Information

What we’ve been talking about is more of a macro view of the problem of treating e-waste and your old laptops, desktops, tablets and cell phones as regular trash.

Your trusty – now obsolete – computer, though, likely still contains account numbers, passwords, your social security number, and maybe even compromising tax information. You don’t want that out there.

There’s no need to freak out….since you can follow a step-by-step process to backup your data, permanently remove all personal files from your soon-to-be-recycled computer, and physically remove or securely erase the hard drive.

There are a lot of ways to go about that last one – i.e., clearing the hard drive – and a lot will depend on whether you want to repurpose your old computer, simply recycle it or pass it on to a hard-up school district.

Ways of Clearing the Hard Drive 

It’s really important to back up your data on an external hard drive, flash drive or with something like Google Cloud storage before you wipe the slate clean, so to speak.

Clearing your hard drive really, really limits the chances that you’ll be the victim of identity theft and, if you’re dealing with a company-provided computer, also helps protect the company and yourself against nasty things like legal penalties and possible intellectual property violations. Who wants to deal with that nonsense?

  • Wiping the Slate Clean

Backup and restore features are actually worked right into Windows 7 and Windows Vista, and if you’re a Mac user you can always use the USB connections on the device to backup personal information on external hard drives and flash drives.

After you’ve backed everything up, you can make use of a program like Darik’s Boot and Nuke to wipe your hard drive and transition it along that proverbial assembly line and closer to being responsibly recycled.

If you intend to give your computer away for reuse by, say, a cash-strapped school district, then make sure that you either install a free operating system on it or restore your old computer to factory settings.

The Many Benefits of Organizing Your Garage

The-Many-Benefits-of-Organizing-Your-Garage-Junk-King-Sonoma-CALet’s face it – garages are often the very definition of out of sight, out of mind. If you’re like most people, organizing your garage is at the bottom of your to-do list; that is, if it’s there at all! Getting your garage in shape, though, doesn’t have to be a dreaded task.

The best way to dive into a garage reorganization is in small separate tasks. Most of the clutter that lives in your garage falls into one of four categories. Set out to tackle one category per weekend, invest in some bins and shelving, and in just one month you’ll have a streamlined space to be proud of. Start with the two easiest areas and the results will inspire you to finish the job.

  • Sporting Equipment

What garage’s dark corners aren’t filled with bikes, ski equipment, golf clubs, and other sports equipment and paraphernalia? Organizing your garage by putting all your equipment together not only makes it neater, but makes everything easier to find. Install some wall tracks that can hold hooks for golf bags and bike racks with shelving above to hold bins for balls, helmets, and other gear.

  • Tools

Over time, even the non-carpenters among us seem to accumulate a large number of tools. Keep a small collection of the most common ones in an easy-to-tote-around tool box. For the rest, peg board and hooks is the way to go. Add a tool shelf or two for over-sized saws, sanders and the like.

  • Personal Belongings

Now it’s time to get down to the more difficult phase of organizing your garage – purging it of clothes and memorabilia. It never fails that an item that’s been stored in a bin for five years is suddenly something you can’t live without. Start with the clothes. The pros recommend sorting clothing into three piles: keep, maybe, and donate. Since these items have probably been stored in the garage for some time, aim for having the donation pile be the largest one. Everything else should be placed in clear, labeled bins and stored on shelves. For decorations, pictures and other keepsakes, place like items together, tuck them into plastic bins, label and store.

  • Junk

Yes, one man’s junk is another’s treasure, but since this is about organizing your garage, be honest about how much of what you have qualifies as junk. Old furniture, electronics, broken or unused toys, can all be picked up and hauled away by a reputable junk removal service.  If you’re having trouble letting go, take the advice of expert organizer Peter Walsh and, before you get started, write down everything you remember that is in the garage. When you come across something you forgot about? Junk it.

The Benefits of Organizing Your Garage

The results that come from the hard work of organizing your garage are extremely rewarding. Less clutter means less stress, and it can also mean a higher resale value for your home. Well-outfitted garages are a plus when it comes to selling your home. And once you finish, it’s just a matter of occasional maintenance to keep things in place. To get started on organizing your garage, visualize the neat and well-organized outcome and then dig in. Who knows, you may even find space for something else – your car!   So contact us at Junk King let us help you haul away that garage junk.

All About Bed Bugs and Mattress Disposal

All About Bed Bugs and Mattress Disposal Junk-King SonomaWhether you’re talking about the Twilight series or shows like the Walking Dead, bloodsuckers are in right now. Where bloodsuckers might not be as welcome, though, is on your mattress. That’s because bed bugs pose problems for millions of Americans, yet they’re only the size of an apple seed.

What are Bed Bugs? 

The scary thing about bed bugs is that they oftentimes feed on hosts – i.e., potentially you and me – without being detected right away. In fact, bed bugs are one of the few parasitic insects out there today that exclusively feed on blood.

The reason that bed bugs prefer calling mattresses home is that bed bugs like warm environments with plenty of shade. Bud bugs are for the most part nocturnal insects that do their dirty work late at night. This is why detecting bed bugs (and proper mattress disposal) are so important.

Detecting bed bugs, though, might be harder than it first seems. Bed bugs are tiny, brown insects that have relatively flat bodies.

This next detail might be more at home in a Ripley’s Believe It or Not! but when bed bugs feed on their hosts their bodies swell from brown and flat to red and round. And you wonder why homeowners and hotel goers worry about bed bugs!

Bed bugs have rightfully earned the name “pests,” although they’re not communicators of any diseases. Another common misconception about bed bugs is that they’re only found in hovels and dirtier homes; bed bugs, in fact, can be found in very clean hotels and spotless homes alike because these pests feed on blood and aren’t too picky about your home’s upkeep or feng shui.

How Bed Bugs Survive 

How do bed bugs get into your home and how do they survive once there? Bed bugs often come into homes through clothing, luggage or furniture. I guess this all gives new meaning to the term riding on your coattails.

Bed bugs can sneak into your home like spies and lie low once they’re in. This is because bed bugs can skitter from one place to another and remain undetected since their flat bodies can wiggle through very tiny crevices. Bed bugs could, indeed, be hiding in your bed frame or box springs in huge numbers.

As bed bugs normally only go on the move during the night, detecting them can be a challenge. That said, you’ll definitely want to consider safe, professional mattress disposal if bed bugs have ensconced themselves in your mattress. Remember that bed bugs like warm, dark places and often bide their time before wreaking havoc.

Bed Bugs and Vampires? 

In many ways bed bugs are similar to the vampires that we watch on the silver screen. Both bed bugs and vampires are bloodsuckers, nocturnal and leave a visible mark on the skin. The only difference might be that once bitten by a bed bug, you won’t (we hope) actually turn into one.

Bed bugs, though, will bite you while you’re sleeping. Through a long beak, bed bugs do their dirty work before moving on to a new host. In the meantime, you might notice a welt on your skin that could get more inflamed a few days in. These pests often bite areas exposed while sleeping, which makes your ankles and arms especially vulnerable to bites.

The only surefire way of getting rid of bed bugs is professional mattress disposal. Contact Junk King to have friendly junk removal professionals come to your home and remove your infected mattress. Quotes are free and booking online today can save you thirty dollars.

Junk Removal for Garage Sale Success

Junk Removal for Garage Sale Success Junk-King SonomaWhat’s the measure of a successful garage sale? How much junk and clutter leaves the house! The only problem is that you might sell your best junk and wind up stuck with a bunch of garbage that you still don’t want. That’s where junk removal comes in to save the day.

Declutter Your Home with a Garage Sale

Feel free to add as many items as possible to your garage sale. Since you’ll be calling for junk removal afterward, you won’t have to put anything back in the house. You can say, “Everything must go!” and really mean it.

You may be surprised at which items actually sell. Remember, you’re not hosting a pop-up shop. You’re getting rid of garbage. Garage sale shoppers expect to sort through piles of junk looking for hidden treasures, so it’s okay to fill your driveway and yard with anything you want to get rid of.

Think beyond the usual suspects and say goodbye to all kinds of garbage:

  • Furniture, electronics, and appliances (even broken ones)
  • Mattresses and box springs
  • Clothes, luggage, sheets, blankets
  • Kitchen items like storage containers, drip coffee makers, mismatched pots and pans

You can also get ready for junk removal while setting up your garage sale. When the shoppers are gone, our junk removal team will show up to pick up what’s left.

Some tips for using junk removal to declutter even more after a garage sale:

  • Set a broken refrigerator or television down by the curb. If someone wants to buy it, great! And if not, we’ll haul it away.
  • Have boxes of papers to throw away, or broken furniture nobody will buy? Use them to display items that are for sale.
  • Can’t lift a heavy item? Leave it in the house. Our staff will do the heavy lifting.
  • Want to donate the unwanted items? Junk King will even take care of that.

Sell What You Can,  Use Junk Removal for the Leftovers!

Don’t make the mistake of holding a garage sale just to make a couple bucks and only get rid of some decent clothes and DVDs. Garage sales are about cleaning your home! Unsold items still need to go, and that’s where junk removal helps.

After a garage sale, you may be tempted to hold onto items that are in good condition. That defeats the main purpose of the garage sale — decluttering. Junk King can round up the good stuff and donate it to local nonprofits so everything gets put to good use. Our junk removal service also includes recycling for many materials including textiles, wood, metal, and yard debris.

When you want to declutter, your best bet is the one-two punch of a garage sale followed by junk removal. Plan your garage sale and make an appointment with Junk King to swing by when it’s over — we’ll haul away the junk so you can reap the benefits of less junk and more space.

DIY Junk Disposal Versus Hiring a Professional Junk Removal Service

DIY Junk Disposal Versus Hiring a Professional Junk Removal Service Junk-King SonomaWhy do so many people continue to call Junk King after trying us for the first time? Because they discover that junk removal service is not only easier and faster, it’s also more safer and more cost-efficient than the DIY route.

Before you start calling friends with pickups and owing them favors, consider the reasons why professional junk removal service exists in the first place. Most people just don’t have the time or energy to successfully pull off a DIY cleanout. Here’s why:

Time: What’s It Worth to You?

What would you rather be doing? Professional junk removal protects your free time. Whether that’s rock climbing or binge watching, you probably don’t envision the perfect weekend consisting of lifting, dragging, carrying, and driving all over Sonoma to various drop-off sites. Not only does Junk King get the job done quickly, but we also stay on top of appointment scheduling so you aren’t stuck waiting for us.

Stress Levels: Is DIY Worth It?

Sure, a little spring cleaning makes a fun weekend project. When you have heavy items or bulk loads of trash, however, DIY junk removal quickly turns into a stressful, sweaty, shouting match among friends and family.

At Junk King, we do this for a living. Just like some DIY projects are better left to professional electricians, plumbers, and handymen, a big junk removal project calls for expertise. You’ll thank yourself while enjoying your weekend freely.

Cost: DIY Is Not Free!

Trash bags, boxes, hospitals bills, torn vehicle upholstery… small and large costs really pile up when you try to haul junk yourself.

Some of our customers say that they shied away from hiring junk removal service for years because they wanted to avoid the cost. After trying Junk King, they realize that the money is more than well spent. We’re so efficient that we keep our costs down. Heck, just the gas you might burn driving back and forth to the dump could cost almost as much.

Difficulty: Are You Really Up for Junk Removal?

Remember getting in over your head the time you decided not to hire movers? The same thing happens with junk hauling.

After a few hours of carrying furniture, pivoting sofas down flights of stairs, or lugging renovation debris, you will find yourself spent. That’s when injuries become more likely, and at the very least you might be exhausted for days afterward. When you hire a junk removal service team, we bring the manpower and experience to do the hauling more quickly and easily.

Environmental Impact: Junk King Is Greener

Junk King’s fleet features many green vehicles, and we also cut down on fuel emissions by hauling the load in one trip. DIY junk removal often entails a neverending succession of trips to different dumps and drop-off centers because each site may only accept certain kinds of items.

Junk removal service also leverages our wide access to industrial recycling centers and charitable donation centers. More stuff gets reused or repurposed, drastically lowering the carbon footprint of your project.

Still not convinced? Ask Junk King for a free quote and then take a gander at the pile of trash you need removed. We’ll be there to haul it away — so you don’t have to.a
