9 Items that Most Neighborhood Trash Services Won’t Pick Up


Neighborhood Trash Pickup.

As you can probably imagine, no two days are ever quite the same for us here at OC Junk Hauling. Because we pick up items that neighborhood services won’t, the variety of “junk” that we have to deal with is incredible! We can pick up most of your unwanted junk so just call us at 949-424-9265. Here are a few of the most common junk items that neighborhood services won’t pick up:

  • Vehicle batteries and other car parts. This is an environmental hazard. Also, some car parts have salvageable components.
  • Concrete, bricks, and other construction debris. Too heavy, too dusty, and too likely to be breaking the next rule…
  • Any type of commercial waste. Neighborhood trash services are meant to service residents, not businesses. If you have substantial amounts of commercial waste, it’s best to seek alternative junk removal services.
  • Glass panes, old windows, etc. The dangers of exposing of glass via the garbage should be obvious!
  • Most appliances. Most appliances are both too large and too environmentally impactful to be disposed of via neighborhood trash services.
  • Large chunks of wood and lumber. If you have small amounts of lumber, consider saving it for a fire! If you have too much lumber and wood, however, the local trash service probably isn’t going to be able to help you out.
  • Old Tires. Old tires can have a very negative impact on the environment when thrown into landfills; and what’s more, they can be recycled very easily!
  • Paint cans. Another environmental hazard!
  • Old furniture. Believe it or not, old furniture has become an important environmental concern. The EPA estimates that nearly 10 million tons of furniture is thrown into landfills annually!
