Although your computer monitor and printer are perfectly safe in your home, it’s when it is left to decompose that problems arise. If the screen is broken or the other components are left to rust away, then there is a chance for harmful chemicals to be released in the soil. A little rain and that soil runoff can make its way into our drinking water. That’s why so many old landfills have been designated hazard zones and are now requiring cleanup. It’s also why New York enacted tough new e-waste recycling laws. Junk King is well aware of these regulations. Of course, they’ve been proud partners in e-waste recycling since the company began operations back in 2005.

When you call on Junk King for any type of junk removal, they will be making their best effort to recycle the bulk of what they collect. That especially applies to computer monitors, printers, fax machines, laptops and any other piece of equipment. Junk King has developed terrific working relationships with all the certified recycling centers around the area. Once they’ve collected enough e-waste to fill a pallet, they’ll make sure those items get dropped off at those facilities. The good news is that you won’t be paying any extra for the drop off. Your flat rate will only be based on how much space your junk takes up on the back of the truck. Whether you’re tossing out a single computer monitor or a whole garage full of rubbish, Junk King has you covered.
