No matter how much you might want to keep the huge array of furniture that your great aunt bequeathed you after she downsized into a senior housing unit, there is only so much space in the homes we occupy. Even if you make it a priority to care for your furniture, appliances, and other bulk items that fill up your house, every household item tends to have an “expiration date.” If you need to get rid of an older piece of furniture, a lumpy mattress that is keeping you from getting a good night of sleep, or virtually any other large and bulky item, Junk King of South San Francisco is here to help you!

The Laws and Policies on Furniture Removal in South San Francisco
In the past, getting rid of your old toaster or that ugly armchair that you had hiding in the corner of your basement used to be as simple as just taking it out to the curb and waiting for regular trash service to come and pick it up. As landfill space becomes increasingly scarce, however, many areas around the country are becoming much stricter about how homeowners, business owners, and individuals dispose of their bulk, junk items. Americans collectively throw out about 96,000 Olympic-sized swimming pools of municipal solid waste. Of that trash, up to 150 million tons ends up in landfills.
Fortunately, several states and city governments around the country are taking the lead in attacking this “out of sight, out of mind” mentality. By implementing stricter recycling and trash disposal laws, many of our nation´s major metropolitan areas are diverting an enormous amount of municipal solid waste (MSW), construction and demolition (C&D) debris, and other forms of trash from ending up in our already over-burdened landfills.
The city of San Francisco is actually a nation-wide leader in recycling. Recently, the city announced that San Francisco had achieved an impressive 80 percent landfill diversion rate, setting national recycling and compost rate records as the highest of any city in North America. While that is certainly a reason to be proud of our city, it also means that residents of South San Francisco and communities such as Brisbane, Burlingame, Daly City, El Granada, Half Moon Bay, Millbrae, Montara, Moss Beach, Pacifica, San Bruno, and San Mateo need to make an extra effort to get find ways to get rid of their junk.
In fact, San Francisco´s Public Works Departments states bluntly that: “It is illegal to leave furniture, appliances, garbage bags, or anything on the sidewalk at any time unless you have a scheduled pick up from a licensed hauler or donation facility.” The city government is serious is about these infractions, and can charge you up to $1,000 per each illegal dumping offense. If you get caught trying to illegal dump your old refrigerator, the fine alone might actually end up costing you more than the purchase price of a new refrigerator.
