Berkeley: A Growing City

124,000 residents & 40,000 students

The City of Berkeley is home to over 124,000 residents and encompasses an area of 17.7 square miles. Berkeley is also 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 40,000 undergraduate and graduate students, the city of Berkeley has a high volume of junk hauling needs on a regular basis, particularly at the beginning and end of semesters.

A GROWING JUNK PROBLEM IN BERKELEY

With so many students in and out of the city’s short-term housing a regular basis, waste output statistics are eye-opening. For example, Dump & Run of Massachusetts reports that the “average college student produces 640 pounds of solid waste each year, including 500 disposable cups and 320 pounds of paper.” Then multiply that figure by 40,000 students and you’re talking about 12,800 tons of waste every year, much of it in the form of old couches, mini-refrigerators, busted futons, and other large/bulky items. In short, Berkeley junk removal demand is typically high.

What city trash collectors will/won’t take

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. As a result, bed frames, appliances, doors, old sinks and toilets will not be picked up at any other time.
