Berkeley, California, is located in the East Bay and is home to over 110,000 residents and includes an area of 17.7 square miles. Known as one of the most politically liberal cities in the United States, Berkeley also is to the #1 public University in the world, the University of California, Berkeley. With so many students, Berkeley has a high volume of junk hauling needs on a steady basis, particularly and the start and end of every school semester.
UC Berkeley has over 38,000 undergraduates and postgraduate students moving in and out of these homes regularly, the amount of waste, junk, and trash they produce are staggering. In a report from Dump & Run, Inc. of Massachusetts, the typical “college student creates 640 pounds of solid trash each year, including 500 disposable cups and 320 pounds of paper.” If you multiply that number by 38,000 students and you’re speaking about over 12,000 tons of trash every year, much of it in the form of mini-refrigerators, old couches, busted futons, and other big and large items.
Berkeley has trash collection services with curbside services to their citizens utilizing rolling containers that are up to 96 gallons in volume. For bulk items such as bed frames, couches, doors, old sinks, and toilets, the city only comes by once a year for these bulky items and will not come by any other time for pick up.
