E Waste Recycling In Atlanta

Atlanta isn’t the only place facing a crisis with electronic waste. Recently the entire country of South Africa held a national e-waste collection day. Imagine what could be collected if America had a national day of e-waste collecting? Here in Atlanta, like the rest of the country, discarded e-waste is quickly amounting to the majority of garbage that is being thrown away. We’re not just talking about tossing out cell phones and chargers. The e-waste category covers televisions, computers, laptops, printers, fax machines, copiers, DVD players and just about anything else that has to be plugged in to power up.

Although the summer is a slow time for e-waste disposal, by the time the holidays roll around there will be tons of gadgets being tossed out making way for new models. All of these items can’t merely be tossed out with the trash. That’s because there are too many harmful materials used to build this equipment which could be released if that stuff was just tossed in a landfill. Atlanta residents are already doing a terrific job with personal recycling but it shouldn’t stop with bottles and plastic. E-waste needs to be recycled as well and Junk King Atlanta can certainly help with that task.

Junk King is the Atlanta junk removal specialist who understands all things recycling. Much of what they collect is taken to one of the many local recycling centers but when it comes to e-waste these centers need to be certified. There have been some issues with loading this e-waste up in a container and dumping it in a third world country. That’s not going to happen when you turn your e-waste over to Junk King.

It might seem like a big deal to hire a crew and a big truck just to take away your old computer and TV. That’s just the way Junk King Atlanta operates. Every appointment comes with that qualified two man Junk King crew and their over-sized truck. Of course, if you call to get rid of your computer there is no reason that you can’t get rid of the rest of your junk at the same time.
