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.
