Proudly Serving Contra Costa and Alameda Counties
El Cerrito is a city that cares about it’s trash, garbage and waste removal systems. This is because El Cerrito is keeping at the forefront of the recycling revolution in order to maintain itself as one of the Bay Area’s cleanest cities. Just take a look at the concept picture for the new recycling center being built…
Most people are getting pretty good at the garbage game. We all know about the three bins and composting. We know that oils shouldn’t go down the sink and that motor oil needs to be contained and properly disposed of… but where? Well it turns out many people have so much trash and among it, chemicals, old batteries and other waste items with less clearly defined methods of responsible waste procedures.
When you find this is the case, turn to El Cerrito’s #1 waste removal specialist – Bryan Bell of All American Hauling. This hauling company has garbage removal down pat. They know what needs to be recycled, what to donate, and they know where do dispose of chemicals such as oil, old radiator fluid and other messy and environmentally harmful products.
Keeping our city clean means keeping your home clean. If your yard is full of junk or looks like a complete mess, consider having a hauling company like All American Hauling come out, collect all your junk and take it to the dump. There’s no reason to live in a home full of trinkets you haven’t used in a decade. Many hoarders live their lives surrounded by stuff that they’re certain “they’re going to need” until the day they die. It’s horrible. They lose their homes to the piles of stuff they collect. Even if they did need something, they’ve probably forgotten that they even have it at all.
And to cap off the point I was making, living in a clean and neat home is not only great for you, but your neighbors tend to appreciate the community looking better. After all, every house on the block affects the prices of it’s neighbors and we need all the value we can get these days!
