Critical Facts About Metal Recycling 

 

Recycling scrap metal has several different yet interrelated benefits. Metal recycling includes both ferrous metals (e.g., cast iron, wrought iron, carbon steel, and alloy steel) and non-ferrous metals (e.g., aluminum, copper, zinc, and tin). The appliances, pots and pans, and furniture around your home is likely made of at least some of these metals. 

 

Steel is actually the most recycled metal in the United States. It is easy to melt down and create new products. You might also be surprised to hear that, while not the most recycled metal, aluminum is one of the most efficient to recycle. It is 20 times more efficient to recycle aluminum than make it in the first place as recycling aluminum uses only 5 percent of the energy. 

 

Recycling just one aluminum can save the energy equivalent of about a days worth of lighting (one lightbulb) or three hours of running a computer. Even though some say that over 100,000 aluminum cans are recycled every minute in the United States, only about 35 percent of aluminum-containing containers, packages, and cans are actually recycled in the United States. 

 

Left to its own devices, aluminum can take a staggering 500 years to decompose in a landfill. That’s unfortunate because aluminum, like steel, is an easy metal to recycle. Aluminum can be turned around into other aluminum products in as little as two months. That means the can you drank from yesterday could be recycled today and turned into a new product on the shelf in a few months! 

 

There are some signs that things are turning around when it comes to recycling, but there’s still more that can be done. Only about 30 percent of recyclable metal is getting recycled. That’s the part that we can improve on. The good news is that approximately 40 percent of the steel production globally right now is being done with recycled steel. Even year about a half-billion tons of metal gets recycled, so that’s definitely a reason to cheer! 

 

Junk King can goose that number up even more. Since Junk King is a full-service junk removal company, you can have virtually any kind of residential junk and commercial junk hauled away and safely recycled. The more items that you have containing recyclable metal the better because keeping these metals out of landfills cuts down on groundwater and soil pollution and has other benefits.

Why Recycling Metals is Essential 

 

Although steel is the most recycled metal today, metals like aluminum, copper, brass, silver, and gold are following on its heels. A lot of electronics actually use silver and gold, and the more that these precious metals are recycled, the less mining that has to be done. Many of your household appliances contain copper and brass, and these are easily recyclable, too. 

 

Environmentally, recycling has many benefits, over and above keeping these metals out of landfills and reducing the need for new mining. Conserving more virgin materials does, indeed, mean less mining, but the more that metals can be recycled the less energy needs to be expended manufacturing new products. In other words, recycling reduces the number of harmful materials sent into the atmosphere and reduces the manufacturing costs that businesses and consumers would otherwise incur. 

 

Ferrous Metals 

 

Ferrous comes from the Latin for iron. Today, ferrous metals are still used to refer to iron, as well as steel. Iron is said to be the second-most common metal in the Earth’s crust, and iron is what contributes to the Earth’s magnetic field itself. The magnetism part is relevant because the scrap metal yards will use huge magnets to get these metals from the excavator to a truck for further processing. 

 

Ferrous metals eligible for metal recycling mainly come from old appliances and furniture in the United States. Appliances, furniture, and tires contributed to almost a third of recycling ferrous metals in 2018, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. This amounted to nearly 5 million tons of recycled ferrous metals that year from these durable goods alone, which equates to a lot of environmental good. 

 

Non-ferrous Metals 

 

Non-ferrous metals are said not to get chemically degraded during the recycling process, which means they can be recycled repeatedly. Aluminum, tin, copper, nickel, and zinc are some of the most common non-ferrous metals that regularly get recycled. You might also be surprised to hear that precious metals like gold and silver are also considered non-ferrous metals, and these are likely in your electronic waste

 

Non-ferrous metals have a way of punching above their weight in that they comprise about 10 percent of the total metal recycling in the United States yet about half (50 percent) of the value garnered from metal recycling. The non-ferrous scrap metal industry in the United States exports about $10 billion worth of material annually to an estimated 100 countries around the world!

Electronic Waste (E-Waste) Recycling in Alameda

Junk Hauling Berkeley

 

Electronic waste is sometimes also called e-waste, e-scrap, or “end of life” electronics. The last one, ‘end of life’ electronics, is probably the most descriptive because electronic waste covers all kinds of electronics that have reached the end of their “useful” life. 

 

When your electronics – e.g., old computers, cell phones, and laptops – reach the end of their useful life, our crew at Junk King Alameda will be there to help. At Junk King Alameda we take all kinds of electronic waste (e-waste), including: 

 

  • -Computers 
  • -Monitors 
  • -Printers 
  • -Televisions 
  • -Cell phones 
  • -Video game consoles 
  • -DVD players 
  • -And much more! 

 

Junk King Alameda works with local metal recyclers and e-waste recycling facilities. It is all about keeping more resources in circulation and giving a clean planet to the next generation. Many old electronics can be refurbished, reused, salvaged for parts, recycled, or donated to those in need.

Why is Electronic Waste Recycling Important? 

 

e-waste alameda

 

That’s a question that we get quite a lot. The short answer is that electronic waste can contain toxic materials that are best left out of landfills. Cell phones, computers, and televisions can contain many toxic substances and heavy metals, such as: 

 

  • -Cadmium 
  • -Lead 
  • -Mercury 
  • -Halogenated polymers 
  • -Flame retardants 
  • -Volatile organic compounds 
  • -Hexavalent chromium
  • -Sulfur
  • -Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA)
  • -Beryllium oxide
  • -And more 

 

The state of California has passed several laws over the last twenty years to try to keep most of these harmful materials out of California’s landfills. The biggest piece of landmark legislation was probably the Electronic Waste Recycling Act in 2003. The Covered Electronic Waste recycling program kicked into effect two years later in 2005. 

 

Residents throughout Alameda were given more opportunities to recycle their electronics than ever before. Junk King works closely with local recycling facilities to cut down on the number of harmful materials that wind up at landfills and reduce illegal dumping of old electronics throughout the state. 

 

 

The United State alone actually produces more electronic waste than any other country around the globe. California alone produces a lot of electronic waste. (If California were treated as a country, then the state of California would be the fifth-biggest economy (by GDP) in the world.) Californians are said to produce about 250,000,000 pounds of e-waste every year!

How Does E-waste Recycling Work? 

 

Junk and E-waste Debris

 

The process of e-waste recycling gets underway when electronics are disassembled and separated. The components of your old electronics get classed together and the materials get cleaned down the line. The interior components from your old electronics get shredded mechanically if the parts are deemed valuable or dangerous to handle. 

 

Big magnets overhead may remove the ferrous metals from many of your old electronics, whereas plastics and glass are removed and classed separately. The plastics recovered from old electronics can, believe it or not, be put into musical instruments or car bumpers among many other things. (Water is used to separate the plastic and glass at the e-waste recycling facility. Only once this process has separated the glass from the plastic can the materials be recycled or resold.) 

 

An overhead magnet will remove the steel and iron from the rest of the e-waste debris below on the conveyor belt at the electronic waste (e-waste) recycling facility. Aluminum, brass, and copper are also separated once various pieces of electronic waste have been disassembled. 

 

The circuit boards in laptops, computers, TVs, and game consoles can be broken down to reveal precious metals inside. Circuit boards are made from gold, silver, palladium, and platinum. The more of these metals that can be recovered, the better. Recovering precious metals means less mining down the road.

E-waste Recycling Prep: Staying Safe with Your Data 

 

Recycling something like your old laptop can save a lot of electricity. Consider that for every one million laptops that are recycled the equivalent of 3,500 homes throughout the United States could be powered for an entire year, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.

 

That’s great news, but unfortunately, only about two in five computers that reach the end of their ‘useful life’ are recycled, and the percentage is much lower for old cell phones. Many people throughout Alameda hang on to their old electronics out of fear that their data will be harvested. Privacy and data theft are certainly real dangers, but there are ways to protect the environment and privacy while donating or recycling your old electronics. 

 

The first step to take before wiping any sensitive data from your old computers or cell phones is ensuring that all of your current data is backed up. Flash drives are good if you only have a few GB of data, but you may need an external hard drive if you have years of data saved on your old computer. There are a few online tools that allow you to store data as well. 

 

Once you have saved your data, then consider taking a few steps to clean the hard drive of your device. Going about this step the right way can involve deleting files, encrypting files multiple times so that they will be harder to get back, and overwriting the files. There are a few tools out there like Secure Eraser, BitKiller, WipeFile, and Hard Disk Scrubber to make the process secure.

Junk Hauling Berkeley: 5 Factors to Consider Before Hiring a Junk Hauling Service

 

Junk Hauling Berkeley

 

Whether you’re moving, remodeling, or simply decluttering your home, junk hauling companies can help you get rid of all your unwanted items. But choosing a junk hauling company is not an easy affair. There’s a big difference between a professional junk hauling company and one that can’t deliver the quality of work you need.

If you’re looking for junk hauling in Berkeley, here’s a guide to help you choose the best place for the job.

 

1. Reputation Counts

Always pay close attention to the reputation of the junk hauling company. Check reviews online and weigh what they say regarding the quality of work, response time, and customer service. If you can’t find the company or its reviews online, it’s a safe bet that it’s not a legitimate service. Unfortunately, the junk hauling business is peppered with scammers and shady operators. It’s advisable to always look into the company before hiring.

A little due diligence on your part can help you save time and money. Never overlook what other customers say about their experience with the junk hauling company.

Junk King is the top rate junk hauling firm in North America. That’s quite a reputation to uphold so you can be assured of impeccable service every time. Junk King Alameda can provide you with the fast and reliable junk hauling services you deserve.

 

2. Are They Well Equipped?

Junk hauling isn’t easy work. It requires dismantling and disposing of large, heavy items that can weigh hundreds of pounds. Therefore, it’s important to ensure that the company is well equipped to handle all sorts of demands.

Check to see what size trucks they use and whether they have an adequate amount of trucks in their fleets. A construction waste removal project will have higher tech requirements than a regular residential junk hauling job. Make sure the company you choose is well-suited for the job at hand.

 

3. Safety First

Junk Hauling Berkeley Safety

Any job that requires lifting and hauling heavy items carries significant health and safety risks. In addition to being well-equipped, ensure that the junk hauling firm has taken the necessary safety precautions. A good starting point is making sure that the firm is licensed, bonded, and insured. This way, you’re not liable for any damage or safety incidents that might occur.

Also, it’s always advisable to check their staff training measures. Junk hauling isn’t as straightforward as it sounds. Sure, anyone can move an old couch, but hauling some items requires professional services. Heavy items such as refrigerators, freezers, HVAC units, and hot tubs pose a significant safety risk if not handled properly.

 

4. What Are Their Disposal Methods?

Every professional junk hauling firm should have reuse and recycling policies in place. Most junk items are easily salvageable and can be disposed of in a way that doesn’t negatively impact the environment.

With Junk King, you not only get the advantage of impeccable service, but you also get to partner with a firm that values the environment. We aim to recycle 60% or more of what we haul. Our job is to keep abreast of waste management and disposal regulations, so you don’t have to. When you partner with Junk King Alameda, you can rest assured that we’ll legally dispose of whatever we can’t send to donation and recycling centers.

 

5. Check Their Pricing Strategy

If a junk hauling company doesn’t offer a free written estimate, that’s a red flag. Junk King believes in providing fair and transparent pricing for all our clients. However, you should also consider other factors in addition to prices, such as quality of service and customer relations.

No hidden fees. No haggling. With Junk King Alameda, you get straightforward pricing. Our pricing estimator allows you to get an estimate for your junk hauling job fast and efficiently.

Junk Removal And E-Waste Disposal: A Smart Combination

The average American produces around 1,700 pounds of garbage every year. The gulf between the trash, junk and debris we produce and what we recycle is taking a profound toll on the environment.

At Junk King, we are passionate about the health of our planet and are committed to building a cleaner, healthier world for generations to come. Partner with us for the most comprehensive junk removal Oakland has to offer all businesses and residents.

Oakland Scrap Metal Removal Pros

 

Metal recycling rates are discouragingly low, yet it is one of the most recyclable materials on the planet. Metals can be reused and recycled over and over again, which would go a long way in mitigating climate change and environmental degradation.

From kitchen utensils and the electronic appliances we use to the buildings we live and work in, you’ll find metal in use wherever you look.  How many metal products do you currently have in your house?

The great thing about metal, in all its forms, is that it can be recycled indefinitely – making it a great idea to swap out plastic for metal.

But how does scrap metal recycling work, really? Let’s find out.

pile of scrap metal

What is Scrap Metal Recycling?

For the most part, scrap metals can be classified into two groups: ferrous and non-ferrous metals.

  • Ferrous Scrap Metal

Ferrous metals contain iron, in one form or another, and are known for their tensile strength. These are your steels and irons. Steel is by far the most recycled metal in the world. Ferrous metals can be found in your car, kitchen appliances, architectural detailing, and industrial applications.

Ferrous scrap metal can further be divided into obsolete and prompt scrap. Obsolete scrap is metal that has been used in one form or another. It includes household appliances, electronics, engines and machinery, and even bedsprings from mattresses. Prompt scrap, on the other hand, refers to the metal pieces left over from manufacturing processes.

  • Non-Ferrous Scrap Metal

Non-ferrous metals are those that don’t contain iron. They include aluminum, tin, lead, zinc, copper, and gold, among others. You’ll find them in your piping systems, gutters, and electrical wiring.

Aluminum is one of the easiest metals to recycle as it doesn’t degrade during the process. It can be processed countless times without losing its integrity.

Why You Should Recycle Metal Products

What comes to mind when you think of scrap metal? Perhaps, it’s huge piles of twisted steel being lifted by giant claw machines in a junkyard. Truth is, a lot of the stuff and packaging we throw out could be considered scrap metal. Think about it. How many soda or canned goods cans have you thrown out in your life?

Sure, it’s easy to recycle small items. You can toss them out in the weekly recycling bin. But what about the big appliances. Common household appliances like stoves, freezers, refrigerators, dishwashers, and dryers contain a considerable amount of scrap metal. Landfill disposal of such items is equivalent to wasting resources. The moment you decide to replace such household appliances is the moment they become scrap metal.

Non-biodegradable products don’t belong in landfills. Landfills are supposed to work pretty much the same way compost piles do. It’s a place where organic metals can decompose down to their natural state. Throwing non-biodegradable products, including metals and plastics, slows down the process and makes landfills incredibly hazardous.

In addition, fridges, freezers, and other appliances containing refrigerants should not be disposed of in landfills. Older units contain CFC (chloro-fluoro-carbons) that can wreck the ozone when thrown out with the rest of your garbage.  And it’s not just your cooling units – some microwaves, dryers, washers, and dehumidifiers have substances that compromise the air, water, and soil.

Recycling ensures that metal-containing products don’t end up in landfills and saves on resources needed to mine virgin ores from the earth. And as you know, mining is highly disruptive to the environment. Recycling also conserves energy that would otherwise be used in the metal manufacturing process. For instance, recycling steel uses 60 percent less energy, while recycling aluminum saves 95 percent!

Let’s break this down. Recycling one aluminum soda can saves enough power to run a TV set for up to three hours.

So, get to recycling and save the planet.

How to Recycle Scrap Metal

So how can you recycle your huge bulky appliances? There are countless recycling centers scattered throughout the United States. Here in Oakland, you’ll find numerous scrap metal recycling centers that would be happy to take in your metal appliances.

Scrap metal dealers recycle a wide variety of ferrous and non-ferrous scrap. While scrap yards mostly deal in large quantities of scrap metals from trade industries, you’d be hard-pressed to find one that doesn’t welcome homeowners. The catch is, you’ll have to take your appliances to them during their business hours which can take considerable effort on your part.

But, you can always opt for professional junk haulers like Junk King Alameda. Recycling scrap metal can be a cumbersome and dangerous task. And this is why you should call in the professionals.

Here are some of the reasons you should hire professional junk removal companies for scrap metal removal.

1. Your health and safety is paramount

Recycling scrap metal is just cumbersome; it’s also dangerous. Heavy metal objects come with sharp edges or broken parts that can seriously injure you. Metal products must always be handled with care precisely because they tend to rust, which can lead to tetanus infections. Professional junk haulers have the means to safely handle and recycle all kinds of scrap metal safely. There’s no reason why you should put your safety at risk.

2. Junk removal services are cost-effective.

Hiring a junk removal company in Oakland saves you time and a lot of unwarranted expenses. Imagine having to take multiple trips back and forth from a local scrap dealer. Not only is this cumbersome, but it also harms your pockets. Save yourself the hassle and hire a professional firm. The cost you pay for the convenience is 100% worth it.

  • Steel in Home and Construction Debris 

Steel is one of the most popular kinds of metals for constructing furniture and appliances. Household appliances like refrigerators and shelving in workplaces is frequently made from steel.

Bigger appliances are invariably constructed from steel because of its durability and resistance to oxidation, or rusting. 

Large appliances are typically full of steel that can be used for metal recycling Oakland.

Junk King takes the following appliances, many of which contain steel: 

  • Air conditioners 
  • Dishwashers 
  • Washing Machines 
  • Dryers 
  • Microwaves 
  • Ovens 
  • Refrigerators 
  • Water heaters 

 

Steel and iron are said to be easier to recycle because of their magnetic properties. At the metal recycling Oakland facility, the steel can literally have impurities removed from it more easily because of this magnetic quality. Where else might steel for metal recycling Oakland be found? 

Your stainless steel silverware may also be responsibly recycled with Junk King’s help. Steel is also frequently used in the construction industry or almost anywhere you find larger appliances.

It has been said that the aluminum deriving from soda cans, siding, or appliances can go from scrap metal to a new product standing on store shelves in as little as two months – a sixty day turnaround! Metal recycling Oakland is good for the planet and that’s something we take very seriously. 

Aluminum actually tops the list in terms of the top non-ferrous (non-iron) scrap metal recovery. Copper and stainless steel are a bit further down the list but still critical for metal recycling Oakland.

If you think you have aluminum items that can contribute to metal recycling Oakland, feel free to call 1-888-888-JUNK to book an appointment, text a photo of your items to 1-737-888-5865, or book online with us to potentially save $20. 

  • Copper Used in Manufacturing 

Copper is used in the manufacture of electronics, electrical wiring, electrical components, and copper pipes. This means that if you are doing a renovation, whether as a business or as a homeowner, you should give Junk King a call because that copper can contribute to metal recycling Oakland and help the planet out. 

Small appliances will almost always contain copper because the wires in these electronics are made from copper. The reason that copper is used in electronics is that copper allows the current to flow smoothly thanks to the low level of resistance offered by this valuable metal. A lot of metal recycling Oakland is recovered copper from older electronics. 

  • Brass in Bathroom Fixtures 

Brass is known as an alloy because it is a combination of the metal copper and the metal zinc. You can find brass in lighting fixtures and bathroom fixtures such as the faucets attached to the sink. Brass is frequently used throughout bathrooms and plumbing. 

Recycling brass and other scrap metals has been done for a long time because it is much more efficient to use and melt down the current metal in circulation rather than mine and process new ore from scratch. The good news is that ferrous metals have a high recovery rate, but more can still be done with metal recycling Oakland. 

  • Iron in Kitchen and Outdoors 

Many pans are made out of iron or copper, so those should be eligible for metal recycling Oakland when you book an appointment with Junk King. Iron is found outdoors as well. Patio furniture, old lawn mowers, metal swings, and iron railings can be safely recycled as scrap metal. 

Book an Appointment with Junk King 

If you want to help the planet with metal recycling Oakland, then please don’t hesitate to call 1-888-888-JUNK, text a photo to 1-737-888-5865, or book online and potentially save $20 today!

Oakland Hoarding: How to Get Rid of Your Junk

 

How much do you know about hoarding? We’re not talking about the basic tendency we all have to accumulate more things over time — we mean those whose homes fill up with so much “stuff” that it becomes almost impossible to use the property as a home. Depicted on popular reality TV shows and studied extensively by psychologists, hoarding is an unusual disorder that can be both very disruptive and harmful to the quality of life of the occupants of the space.

 

Some organizations have banded together to learn more about hoarding and to provide educational opportunities to train individuals in techniques for helping hoarders. One such organization you may not have heard of before is the National Study Group on Chronic Disorganization, also known as the NSGCD for short. These folks are on the front lines of fighting the hoarding epidemic, working to find ways to help those whose tendencies have led to significant disruption in their lives.

 

What does this group do to make a difference? The NSGCD provides special training to individuals who want to become a hoarding specialist and earn a certificate signifying they have completed a rigorous set of exams and education courses to help people with the hoarding disease.

 

The NSGCD has developed and now provides special training classes to individuals who want to offer their services to those suffering from hoarding disorders. Individuals who complete these courses can refer to themselves as hoarding specialists, and they can display an industry certification showcasing their completion of the NSGCD’s rigorous educational coursework and examinations. Participants in these courses aren’t just the average Joe, however.

 

garage filled with old debrisMost of the professionals who choose to pursue the training necessary to become hoarding specialists are psychologists or clinical mental health therapists. At its core, hoarding is a mental disorder, not a malady created by a physical breakdown of the body. Many hoarders start with small collections before developing mental illness or a significant life event triggers anxiety when the person confronts the concept of throwing something away.

 

While the average person might not think twice about throwing away a piece of garbage, a hoarder attaches significance to these objects. Many worry that they may “need” an item later, and they will keep it in the house — sometimes for years or even decades at a time. Over time, the number of attached objects accumulates, and the hoarding can reach dangerous levels due to these deep-seated psychological issues. Even if a relative or loved one intervenes and clears out the house of their own volition, the problem will manifest again if the underlying problems aren’t treated. Some hoarders re-fill their homes multiple times despite family interventions.

 

No two hoarding situations are truly the same, and there are many different kinds of hoarders. Some individuals will never throw away anything at all, whether it’s garbage or old food. You can imagine the health hazards this creates — not to mention the invitation for pest infestation and contamination.

 

Some unfortunate cases involve hoarders who become obsessively attached to live animals, including the most common types of pets, such as cats, dogs, rabbits, and even rats. Often there are so many animals living within the home that most of the creatures become victims of neglect. The hoarder simply cannot care for all the animals at once and becomes overwhelmed.

 

Other hoarders start as earnest collectors of items as a hobby or for another reason. They might feel like it is their life’s mission to accumulate as many of their favored objects as possible, whether that means dolls, memorabilia, shoes, books, or any other personal items. Over time, this obsession reaches problematic levels when their home becomes so full that some rooms fill up completely.

 

No matter what their object of choice is, all hoarders have one thing in common – a strong sense of denial that anything is wrong. Even when they are surrounded by mountains of garbage and cannot use their facilities, they will deny that anything is wrong. That’s why outside help, from friends or family members, is essential for recognizing the problem and reaching out for help from hoarding professionals.

 

full service junk removal

 

The psychological help is only part of the assistance hoarders need — all the junk needs to go, too. In situations such as these in the Oakland area, a team such as Junk King Alameda can be an invaluable partner and a reliable resource. Junk King crews are highly experienced with garbage removal and know how to work quickly, safely, and cleanly to remove any level of junk from a property. Even the most astounding hoarding situations in Oakland are no match for the help offered by our crews. We make messes disappear.

 

The process is simple. First, you make arrangements with our team. We’ll come out to the property at no charge to inspect the mess and discuss with you what requires removal and from where. After assessing all that information, we provide a detailed and transparent quote so you can decide on whether or not to proceed. This free quote comes with no obligation, so you’re always welcome to change your mind or choose to request service at a later date.

 

Free Junk Removal Price Estimator

 

Once you’ve decided to move forward, we’ll schedule a date and time to arrive on site and begin removing all the junk. We’ll take a massive range of non-hazardous materials, including heavy and bulky items, and load them all up into our big red trucks. Afterwards, we’ll take the time to sweep up after ourselves, so any final clean-up is quick and easy for you.

 

Where does all that junk go once we leave? Don’t worry — it’s not all going straight to the dump. We carefully examine everything we remove to separate recyclable materials. Our goal is always to recycle at least 60% of everything we recover from our clients. Not only does a hoarder get their home back, but the environment doesn’t take a hit in the process.

 

 Junk King also provides removal services for many other clients, including builders and individual homeowners. Hopefully, your hoarding tendency hasn’t reached such extreme levels — after all, we all tend to hold on to more things than we need. That’s especially true for big and bulky items that you can hide in a closet or shuffle around in the garage. When you don’t have a vehicle big enough to transport the object for disposal, it can seem easier to just live with its presence.

 

Of course, once you cross that line, it’s easier to do it again and again until you find that you’ve run out of storage space entirely. While that doesn’t mean you’re a hoarder, it does mean you have an opportunity to reclaim valuable space and make better use of your home by investing in a quick and professional de-cluttering service. By hiring Junk King to help you clear out the most troublesome trash on your property, you can reclaim your life from the power of having too much “stuff.” Of course, an episode of Hoarders might be all the inspiration you need to pick up the phone and call!

Television Disposal In Fremont Made Easy

television disposal

Maybe you got a new large screen TV over the holidays. That can be exciting, as are most new electronic devices for many people. But, when you think about it, every new device means there’s probably an old one that’s not working, is unwanted, or no longer needed.

During the holidays there are hundreds of thousands of new devices and televisions that are received as gifts, for example. But this also means that there is an almost equally large amount of electronic waste, or e-waste, and old televisions that now have to be disposed of.

And that kind of disposal requires much more than tossing things into your residential waste bin.

Which, by the way, isn’t legal where we live anyway!

Getting rid of all the wrapping paper, plastic, foam, and cardboard after Christmas was relatively easy. Sure, it might have taken a few trips in the waste management trucks, but it was gone eventually. Getting rid of your old TV, on the other hand, can be difficult and cost you money.

Fortunately for our friends and neighbors in the greater Fremont area, we have a great solution at Junk King Fremont for your television disposal needs. Not only are we experts with television and e-waste disposal, but we have the experience and the equipment to make your television disposal chore quick and painless for you!

Television Disposal and Heavy Metal

Generally speaking, televisions and computer (and gaming) monitors fall under the umbrella term of e-waste. What is that you ask? Good question!

According to the website at CalRecycle,

“E-waste is a popular, informal name for electronic products nearing the end of their “useful life.” Computers, televisions, VCRs, stereos, copiers, and fax machines are common electronic products.”

And the problem inherent with so many electronics is the not-so-nice chemicals and toxic metals residing inside of them. 

For example, televisions and old computer monitors were once made with technology that used a cathode ray tube, or CRT. These are the large, pyramid-shaped devices with a screen attached to the front end. This made up the bulk of the TV.

And this configuration is a potential hazard because of the contents of the CRT.

For example, the glass enclosing a cathode ray tube can contain up to eight pounds of lead, a layer of cadmium-based phosphorous, and other toxic heavy metals. Keep in mind that an old TV by itself is not a health threat – and that’s a good thing as there are probably still thousands of them sitting in households all over the East Bay!

But if the glass on a CRT is broken – a possibility if it were dumped into a landfill, for example – it can release lead and other toxic materials into the air and the ground. And the old cathode ray tube televisions can sit, decaying, in a landfill for 20 or 30 years. 

And that’s just old television disposal challenges. Now we have to deal with the new flat-screen TVs.

While they don’t use lead-filled glass CRTs, flat-screen TVs have toxins and hazardous materials in their components, not to mention in the plastics, copper wiring, and circuit boards.

So, the question remains, “What do you do with them?”

Need A Storage Facility Cleanout In The Alameda Area?

storage facility cleanouts alameda ca

Who would’ve thought that a small, unattractive utility structure could become a media star?

Welcome to the United States in the 21st century!

The fact is, that self-storage facility units have become famous for being abandoned while still full. And one of the driving forces of this media attention is the reality TV show “Storage Wars.” The program’s premise, according to the show’s producers, 

“Follow four professional buyers and their teams as they scour repossessed storage units in search of hidden treasure.”

However, the “real life” reality is that, while some may see possible treasures, storage facility managers just see junk.

Dude! Where’s My Stuff? Storage Facility Cleanouts

The problem with the popular perception perpetuated by reality TV shows is that the belongings left in these self-storage rental units typically have little or no value. And the real question is: what happens with all the “junk” that turned out to not be treasures?

The answer is that someone has to clear it all out and get rid of it. Unfortunately, the job of getting all that junk loaded up and hauled away usually falls on the storage facility manager. 

Of course, there are sometimes auctions carried out, but, even if there is an auction, everything isn’t always sold. Eventually, the self-storage facility owners or their managers must deal with the defaulted leases, the abandoned junk, and maybe any items that might have been left unsold at an auction.

Ultimately, the storage facility manager is the one left with the task of clearing out the abandoned units in order to put them back on the market.

And that’s when a reliable storage unit cleanout service is needed.

The Growth of Storage Facilities in the U.S.

There was a time when a “storage unit” was just a shed in the backyard, the garage, the basement, or the attic.

Not any longer.

Today, having too much stuff is a growing problem for most people in the United States. In fact, most of us are so inundated with all our personal belongings, that we’ve turned self-storage unit rentals into an almost 40 million dollar industry!

As of 2020, the storage facility industry recorded close to 60,000 storage facilities operating just in the United States alone. These facilities add up to a total of 1.7 billion square feet of storage facility space available for rent.

So, what does that look like on a personal scale? Almost five and half square feet per person.

While that’s just over five square feet of storage space for every man, woman, and child in the nation, that is also more than five square feet for about 331 million people as of 2020! And even though not everyone in the country has a rented self-storage unit, it’s estimated that almost one out of every ten households do rent a storage unit.

All of this means that it’s a great time to be one of the hundreds of companies that build and maintain the tens of thousands of storage facilities across the nation. But, when it comes to dealing with the day-to-day operations of a storage facility, it is usually the individual facility manager or managers – since it’s quite common in the industry for husbands and wives to work as partners. 

And they are the ones who have to deal with the hard stuff.

Stuff like renters not paying on time – or not paying at all – and units being broken into, or renters just breaking things with their trucks. In addition, these often-overworked men and women are constantly needing to keep their units leased and run the business.

Storage unit cleanouts? Who’s got time for that?

The Storage Unit is Full But Nobody’s Home

Occasionally, storage facility managers discover large amounts of junk that has been left behind by previous tenants. This is a real problem for them, unfortunately, since the work of getting all that junk cleared out and hauled off to be disposed of falls on them.

Typically, in these situations, the abandoned units need to be quickly cleared out by the managers, so they are able to rent them out again. This is critically important since available storage units that can’t be rented represent a loss of revenue for the facility owners and managers.

But sometimes, even getting all the junk out of these storage units can be a logistical challenge.

Because, as storage facility managers know, the storage units are usually built side-by-side, often with narrow hallways or paved access. In addition, the space inside a full unit is often limited and cramped. In many situations, even the work of separating and staging all the contents can be difficult and time-consuming.

For a storage facility manager, this often means time away from other duties or hiring someone to clear it out. In addition, there is often a need for a large enough vehicle to make the hauling task easier.

The good news is that Junk King Alameda offers a solution to this problem!

Don’t want to bother with doing it yourself? Then Junk King Alameda is your answer for every storage facility cleanout job and junk removal. Best of all, we haul it away for one simple price, while making everything fast and stress-free for you.

commercial junk removal services

Junk King Alameda and Affordable Storage Facility Cleanouts

With Junk King Alameda, you will always save money because we only charge by volume, that is, simply the amount of space your junk items take up in our trucks. This is important as most other junk removal firms charge by weight.

What’s that mean for you? Simply that you pay the same price for the amount of junk you dispose of regardless of how heavy it is. A truckload of appliances will cost you no more to dispose of than a truckload of old clothes and bedding.

In addition, our pricing is the lowest in our service area, whether that’s Fremont, Union City, Castro Valley, Newark, or Hayward. In fact, at Junk King, we guarantee to beat any written estimate.

In addition, we offer free estimates as a part of our service along with four different ways to get one:

ON-SITE: The best and most accurate way for us to assess the job and offer you the lowest price is a free, no-obligation on-site estimate.

CALL: You can also call or live chat with our customer service representatives.

TEXT: If you can take a photo of your items, text us at 737-888-5865, and we will text you back an estimate.

ONLINE: For an online pricing estimate, simply click “Pricing” in the navigation above, scroll to pricing estimator, enter a zip code, and choose “Add My Items” or “By Pickup Truck Loads”

Please note that an estimate is not an actual price quote. However, once our junk removal team shows up at your home and assesses your junk removal job, they will give you a firm and no obligation price on-site.

The Best E-Waste Disposal Solution For Fremont – And Beyond

Everyone in America needs to get rid of e-waste at some point. 

Okay, pretty much everyone. And living in the greater Fremont area makes the task of e-waste disposal a bit challenging. 

So, what exactly is ”e-waste” you might ask?

E-waste is short for “electronic waste” and this particular type of junk typically can’t just be tossed into your household trash. Even if it’s all small enough to fit in your recycling bin it’s usually not legal to dispose of it that way. 

And the larger e-waste items, or large amounts of e-waste, can be quite problematic. But the big stuff can be even more challenging when trying to figure out the best way to dispose of it. You could do it yourself, but it requires knowing what can be disposed of where and how. 

And there are often additional fees with e-waste disposal.

And if you have several large e-waste items, such as printers or copiers, just getting it all out to the sidewalk or driveway so you can load it up can be strenuous and even dangerous. And even if you can get everything outside to load it up for removal, you still need a large enough vehicle to fit it in so you can haul it away to dispose of it.

In other words, e-waste disposal can be a bit tricky and a lot of work.

The good news is that, at Junk King Fremont, we have a great solution for your e-waste disposal needs. We are not only knowledgeable about e-waste and e-waste disposal, but we have the experience and the equipment to make your e-waste disposal project quick and painless for you!

E-Waste Is Junk With “Extras”

Those old cell phones, tablets, PDAs, video game consoles, and more – these are the things that make up what we call “e-waste.”

According to CalRecycle,

“E-waste is a popular, informal name for electronic products nearing the end of their “useful life.” Computers, televisions, VCRs, stereos, copiers, and fax machines are common electronic products.”

The best thing about e-waste, as the CalRecycle website notes, is that many of these products can be reused, refurbished, or recycled. In fact, almost all of the e-waste that we tend to think of as just “junk” can often be reused with little or no refurbishing.

That’s great for both the economy and the environment.

As an article in the New York Times pointed out,

“The precious metals in e-waste, found especially in circuit boards, are more concentrated than in the most productive mines. In 2016, the gold in the world’s e-waste equaled more than a tenth of the gold mined globally that year. And yet much of this treasure is simply reburied in landfills.”

And the e-waste items that do end up in landfills pose a danger to both the environment and humans. That is because the materials that are in e-waste contain dangerous amounts of toxic components, including mercury, lead, cadmium, polybrominated flame retardants, barium, and lithium.

Unfortunately, the reality is that most people just throw away old electronics that they no longer want or need. And, unless these items are somehow recovered, they’ll likely end up in a landfill or get incinerated. 

However, part of Junk King’s corporate mission is to keep as much waste of any kind out of landfills as possible. And Junk King Fremont makes every effort to recycle or reuse everything we bring into our doors.
