E Waste Recycling in Albany New York

Did you take part in the great e-waste collection event? According to the mission statement, the purpose for this event was “To create an awareness for safe and proper recycling practices by providing a complimentary electronic recycling service to our local community, that safely disposes of household e-waste in an eco-friendly way.” As mission statements go that’s a pretty decent one. Unfortunately, this was a single day event that was held back in April. There were five locations around the area where folks could drop off their stuff but it was only from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and if you were busy that day you were out of luck.

Just to review, here is what is considered to be e-waste: computer towers, laptops, servers, monitors, keyboards, mice, speakers, cords, cell phones, pagers, PDAs, Palm Pilots, cameras, camera chargers, flat panel television, plasma television, glass monitors, desktop copiers, VCRs, DVD players, turn tables, stereos, clock radios, routers and telephones. That’s a pretty long list. The question becomes how much of that junk are you holding onto because you have no way of getting rid of it? Well, now you have a way and that would be with Junk King.

Ever since they started collecting junk in the Albany area Junk King Capital District has quickly risen to the ranks of becoming the city’s leading junk removal experts. Because so much of our useless stuff can be considered e-waste, Junk King makes it their business to properly dispose of those items and ensure they don’t end up in a landfill. That’s because of all the kinds of trash we throw out e-waste needs the most special attention. All the components in a computer or TV or even a cell phone need to be separated and sorted.

Technically, you can call up Junk King and have them cart off your old computer and monitor in a single trip. However, it’s to your advantage to make that “trip” count. You can do that by tapping Junk King Capital District for the removal off all your unwanted items. Go through your closets, attics, basements and garages. You’re sure to discover plenty of things you can toss out. Maybe it’s finally time to reclaim all that space and turn it into a more productive area. The garage can become a wonderful arts and crafts work station. The basement can be transformed into a family home theatre. The attic could be a guest room. First, you have to get rid of all the junk. That’s where Junk King comes into play. Start with the old computer and finish with a totally junk free home!
