The City of Berkeley in the East Bay is home to over 110,000 residents and encompasses an area of 17.7 square miles. Known as one of the most politically liberal municipalities in the United States, Berkeley is also known for being home to the University of California, Berkeley. UC Berkeley (or Cal) is the oldest and most prestigious member of the University of California system, and is widely regarded as the #1 public university in all of the country. With over 35,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students living on or around the campus, the city of Berkeley has a high volume of junk hauling needs on a regular basis, particularly at the beginning and end of every semester.
With so many students filtering in and out short-term housing in the city on a regular basis, the trash, junk, and waste statistics are pretty eye-opening. According to Dump & Run, Inc. of Massachusetts, the "average college student produces 640 pounds of solid waste each year, including 500 disposable cups and 320 pounds of paper." Multiply that figure by 35,000 students and you're talking about over 11,000 tons of waste every year, much of it in the form of old couches, mini-refrigerators, busted futons, and other large and bulky items. In short, Berkeley's trash removal demands are high.
The city of Berkeley's trash collection service offers weekly curbside service to residents using rolling containers up to 96 gallons in size. However, bulky waste pick-up only occurs once per year, and bed frames, appliances, doors, old sinks and toilets will not be picked up at any other time.
If you live in the Berkeley area, and you have a urgent need to remove an old mini-refrigerator, a old futon and broken frame, unwanted electronics, discarded student furniture, or other items not suitable for standard trash or recycling pick-up, contact Fast Haul as we provide the following services:
