Albany E-Waste Recycling

Suppose you found a great deal on a new laptop or cell phone. That will only mean it will be time to replace your old model. However, if you toss those items out in the trash, you could end up losing all the savings you worked so hard to find. That’s because a new law passed in New York that prohibits residents from tossing out their e-waste in the trash. A violator could be slapped with a $100 fine. Does this mean you would be stuck with those outdated gadgets? Not if you call Junk King. They are a company dedicated to e-waste recycling. All you’ll have to do is turn over your unwanted items to Junk King and they’ll handle the rest.


Although there are 25 states that currently have some form of e-waste recycling laws on the books, New York is the most strict when it comes to dumping in landfills. Not only are computers prohibited but so are televisions, VCRs and even old game consoles. Pretty much anything you have to plug in to power up would fall into the e-waste category and all of that stuff has to stay out of your garbage can.

It might seem a bit of an overreach to hire Junk King just to take away your old laptop. Can you imagine the two dedicated Junk King movers delicately lifting that laptop and carrying it out to the big empty truck? That probably wouldn’t make much sense. On the other hand, if you have ac closet full of old electronic gear then Junk King can come into play. Of course, you can use that same e-waste recycling trip to have Junk King remove all the rest of your unwanted stuff.

This is your chance to finally toss out that smelly sofa and rolled up carpet in the garage. You can get rid of boxes of old clothes, toys and books. Much like the e-waste recycling, all the rest of your junk can be tagged for repurposing. The clothes, furniture, toys and books could all make their way to a local charity. That’s what Junk King considers as responsible disposal. All of those multiple recycling drop offs would be included in the one low fee you’ll pay to Junk King. To make sure all your junk hauling and e-waste recycling is handled the right way, reach out to Junk King.

“Junk King is a certified waste consolidation center through the Department of Environmental Conservation. Special attention is placed on remaining environmentally safe. When called upon, a truck will arrive to pick up that old television, where it is properly wrapped and hauled away to their facilities before it is sent away to be recycled. ”
