I have been going to Budget since I was a teenager. Del has always been honest and fair, a little gruff when talking, but once you get to know him s real teddy bear. He has taken care of all my cars and made sure they were safe before sending me on my way. I recommend 100%!!!
For over 10 years I have not only bought my used cars from Budget Auto Wrecking but I have used this place to keep my cars on the go. Del and his son Rocky will always let you know what they can do and what they can't do (which I found is very little) when they work on your car. For those who know nothing about cars or maintenance of cars I have always had to find someone I could trust. For over 20 years I served as a Pastor in churches today I serve as one of 3 Chaplains in the Tulare County Jails. I am very grateful I found out about Budget Auto Wrecking because I do TRUST them. If you want to ever talk with me about their work or even my work my name is Chaplain John Sayers and my office phone number is 559 735-1770.
"AS BUDGET AUTO WRECKING, VISALIA TURNS..." I wrote my first NEGATIVE RATING about these PIRATES more than 8 weeks ago. The following additional NEGATIVE review chronicles my most recent contact with DEL BEANES (OWNER) today 11-30-16:1. I had to call for a CIVIL STANDBY today (VISALIA PD). The last time I attempted to claim my ONLY ignition key, (which was left with DEL), two months ago to tow a vehicle which he committed to tow, (BUT DIDN'T, VIA "BATE AND SWITCH"), he childishly CHALLENGED ME TO A FIGHT. When I informed DEL that he was NOT WORTH a mutual assault charge, he resorted to pushing and shoving...HENCE THE NEED FOR A "CIVIL STANDBY" today.2. OFFICER HENRY and I walked into the yard office at approximately 3:45 pm. today. DEL refused to make eye contact with me but he addressed the OFFICER "What can I do for you?" I replied that I was there for my ignition key that has been in his possession for more than ten weeks. I asked, "Where is the key, DEL?" His reply? "I DUNNO. NOW LEAVE. YOU ARE NOT WELCOME HERE. 3. This presents a problem because now I cannot have my van towed by another Auto wrecker. DEL knows full well that this was my last ignition key for the vehicle. He has now WITHELD my property for more than ten weeks. The OFFICER then suggested it was time to leave. On my way out, I informed DEL that he will be sued in small claims court for NON-PERFORMANCE of our original verbal contract, BAIT AND SWITCH, and now, the COST OF REPLACING the key at the Chrysler dealership...somewhere between $170-$230 for a new key. Do read my previous episode of; "AS BUDGET AUTO WRECKING TURNS." Just scroll to the next section below: Steve.
DALE and his son ROCKY at BUDGET AUTO WRECKING make "SANFORD & SON" look like classy gentlemen by comparison! Here is my truthful experience with these LOW-LIFE PIRATES: 1) BATE & SWITCH with their verbal agreement with me. 2) Dale FAILED TO PERFORM after five weeks to provide tow service and compensation for my additional taxi cab. 3) Dale has STILL NOT RETURNED my ignition key I left with him to tow my vehicle (BEYOND 10 WEEKS NOW). This is despite the fact that he was clearly informed that it was my ONLY KEY. 4) They were EXTREMELY RUDE and VERBALLY ABUSIVE with me SEVERAL TIMES on the phone...HANGING UP when politely confronted about their SELECTIVE MEMORY relative to our agreements, and their failures to perform. 5) Finally, I arrived at their yard to claim my new tires they kept for 4 weeks. I informed Dale on this occasion at the counter that this NEGATIVE REVIEW would be forthcoming. In response, Dale threatened to SPREAD LIES ABOUT ME PERSONALLY ONLINE!!!, (should this rating be published). 6) Finally, Dale STALKS ME TO MY VEHICLE and tries to provoke a fight with me. His tactic was to push me when I walked. Then, when I forcefully told him to STOP TOUCHING ME, Dale ground his heel onto my foot when I opened the door to my car. 7) Once I got behind the wheel, Dale then leaned the full force of his weight against the hinge of my door to try to break it. FINALLY, I had to say it!!! "DALE, IT IS HARD FOR ME TO ANY BUSINESS WHATSOEVER WITH SUCH A DISAGREEABLE PRICK!" He tried to goad me into fistacuffs once more...to which I replied; "SORRY PAL, YOU ARE NOT WORTH A MUTUAL ASSAULT CHARGE.!!!" Later, Dale and Rocky called me and threatened to break the glass on my car when I would least expect it. I am SURE GLAD MY TAXI SECURITY CAMERA RECORDED most of the incident. They were so informed at the time.

Waste management is more than just a smelly chore. Depending on where you live, it can be complicated and subject to a variety of local laws.
People produce a lot of waste, and proper disposal of that waste is essential for maintaining healthy living environments. Not only is garbage unpleasant to be around, but it also breeds bacteria, attracts pests, and takes up more space than you might imagine. So, governments create rules to properly dispose of it.
There are four main ways the trash gets taken out:
Landfills are by far the most common form of waste disposal. In the year 2013 alone, the U.S. sent 294 million tons of trash to landfills. While many people might think of landfills as simply a hole in the ground filled with trash, they are carefully planned out and expertly constructed structures. They have bottom liners made of either clay or plastic and are covered with soil daily. Landfills are designed to prevent the trash inside from coming in contact with environmental factors, including water and air.
Landfills are different than dumps, which don't attempt to separate the garbage from the surrounding environment. Typically, landfills also have runoff collection ponds, drop-off stations, and a buffer area around the premises. This keeps everything contained and reduces the effects on the environment and community.
Recycling means using existing material to create new products. The goal is to reduce pollution associated with creating new materials and decrease waste going to landfills. A wide range of commonly used products can be recycled, including:
While the U.S. has no national recycling laws, some state and local governments have implemented their own requirements.
Incineration, also called waste-to-energy, involves burning trash, usually to produce electricity for homes or businesses. Though this practice is common in Europe, the U.S. has been hesitant to adopt this method of waste disposal. However, some cities are beginning to embrace the technology. As recycling costs have gone up and participation in recycling efforts have gone down, some cities are turning to incineration for their garbage removal.
Composting refers only to organic substances, like food and paper waste. Composting quickly breaks down matter, and the resulting material can be used for agricultural or landscaping purposes, as it is filled with nutrients that are great for plants.
Garbage is something most people don't want to handle more than they have to. Thankfully, cities arrange for workers to take your trash away for you. But, did you know that there are different types of trash that require different people to handle?
Trash removal refers to the waste collectors who come to your curb or building's dumpster on a weekly basis to remove the trash. This expense might be included in your utility bill, rent payment or another bill every month. However, you might have other options, depending on where you live. If you decide to hire an independent company instead of relying on the city-provided services, you might be able to save a little bit of money. Most trash removal companies charge between $10 and $40 per month, or $140 to $250 per year.
Junk removal handles items you don't want in your home anymore but can't easily dispose of yourself or in your regular trash. These items might include old furniture, tires, or appliances. Pricing generally depends on the scope of the task. For example, hauling away a hot tub will probably be more difficult than doing so for a couch. Therefore, hot tub removal will be more expensive - generally around $130 - than taking away the couch, which might fall closer to $80. However, some cities may have options to have your large items picked up for free. Check with your local waste management department to find out if this is available in your city and how you can arrange it.
If you separate your compostable garbage from your regular trash, you can pay for a company to come around to pick up your yard and food waste. This generally costs around $100.
Some states and cities have specific recycling rules, like Connecticut and San Francisco. If you live in one of these areas, your city might arrange for workers to pick up your recycling in the same way they pick up your garbage. You'll still have to separate everything out, though. Most companies ask you to put paper recycling in one bin, and plastic and glass in another. Some will also give the option to pick up unsorted recycling for a fee. Some recycling may get sticky, but unless there's solid food or debris stuck on, you probably don't have to worry much about residue.
When recycling pizza boxes and other similar items, rules may vary between cities. Find out from your city's recycling or waste management department to find out the rules about pizza boxes. If they do accept them, it's a good idea to scrape all the cheese and fallen toppings away before recycling the box.
Usually, regular recycling removal costs between $5 and $25 per month if you have one paper bin and one plastic and glass bin. If you have more than this, a fee of $2.50 to $7.50 per bin might be tacked on.
Like junk, waste is comprised of items or substances that you can't easily get rid of yourself. However, it's not always the size that makes removal more difficult. Rather, it's the composition. Waste generally refers to items or substances that could be dangerous to people and the environment, like chemicals, batteries, fluorescent light bulbs, old latex paint or debris from a construction project. Solid waste removal generally costs around $160; hazardous waste will cost anywhere between $50 and $100, depending on how much it weighs. Construction waste can usually be taken away for about $200.
Before tossing hazardous waste items in the trash, it's best to look into local rules. Some governments have laws about throwing away batteries, latex paint and other potentially toxic substances. Call your city's waste management department to find out what rules apply to you.
When handling waste, it's important to know how to keep yourself and anyone around you safe. Certain materials can be potential safety hazards. For example, improper handling of chemicals can harm your health, and construction debris haphazardly left around can lead to an injury.
Safety Tips for Handling Hazardous Waste:
Some common examples of hazardous waste you might encounter include:
The average U.S. household generates more than 20 pounds of hazardous waste every year. However, not everyone knows how to dispose of it. Often, these potentially harmful substances get stowed away until the family moves or does a major cleaning overhaul.
Safety Tips for Handling Construction Waste:
When performing do-it-yourself home upgrades, you may encounter dangerous materials on your own. For example, asbestos, a harmful substance that was previously a popular insulative material, may be found in older homes. If you're handling asbestos on your own:
Other materials, like broken pieces of wood or boards with nails sticking out, should be directly disposed of into your rented dumpster or a designated waste pile. Be sure everyone working with you knows where this is. Also, see that everyone is wearing protective clothing, close-toed shoes, and work gloves. Safety goggles are never a bad idea, either.
If you're new to your area or have questions about trash, recycling, or compost removal options, contact your city's waste management department. Additionally, if you are working on something new that will require additional trash, waste, or junk removal, it's always a good idea to get more information about this prior to beginning your project. If you aren't sure about how to dispose of something, like an old car battery or asbestos you found in your home, contact your local waste management department to find out what they suggest.
If you're putting on a big event or working on a large construction project, your kitchen trash can might not be big enough to hold all of your refuse. Dumpsters can usually be rented from your local waste management department or a close-by dumpster rental company. They are typically rented out on a per-week basis, so they are great for multi-day jobs. But if your project or event will be completed in one day, it might be more cost effective to pay for a junk removal service.
Dumpster-rental costs vary widely, depending on how long you'll need the dumpster and what size you choose. Common sizes include:
The most popular size is the 20-yard dumpster, which is commonly used for outdoor projects or home remodels. Bigger options, like the 30- and 40-yard dumpster, are generally used for major home renovations. They are also ideal for community cleanup events. The smallest sizes can be great for major home clean-outs in the spring or small do-it-yourself remodeling jobs.
