Beyond Junk Removal: Maximum Recycling [Tips]

You can call a reliable junk removal firm to haul away your larger household junk, but what about the small stuff? Is it possible to recycle more than your cans and plastic?

 It turns out that residential recycling not only takes different forms, but can include a wide variety of common household items. In fact, with some creativity and a little effort, almost anything you might otherwise toss out can be recycled, reused or repurposed. 

In addition to the smaller items that can be reused or recycled, almost every appliance and piece of furniture in your home can be efficiently disposed of to then be dismantled and the components recycled accordingly. With the right service or the right methods, just about anything you need to get rid of in your home can be recycled.

10 Common Household Items You Can Recycle

Whether it's simply an growing amount of clothes, shoes, and other personal belongings, or larger household items like furniture or sports equipment. Almost everyone finds themselves with too much stuff at some point. In addition, things break, wear out, or simply become unusable or outdated. 

Then what?

For too many people, though, the default option is to simply toss things out. Adding to the municipal waste stream and the local landfill isn't always the best choice, however. With a little planning and forethought, much of what we see as "junk" or simply trash may, in fact, be utilized or disposed of in other ways like being sent to a recycle center.

The most common materials that get recycled from homes is paper, plastic, aluminum cans and glass. But there are a larger number of other common items and materials that can be recycled either directly into raw material, or through reuse and repurposing

Here is an infographic that illustrates the ten most common household items you can recycle:
