Chattanooga Junk Recycling Benefits

There are many artists around the country who like to turn trash into their latest creations. This allows them to proudly proclaim, “One man’s trash is another man’s art.” As it happens, many of these “trash pieces” command high fees. There is a company here in Chattanooga who is also making “art” from trash. In this case, the art are beautiful granite countertops made exclusively from recycled granite. How can you tell if granite is recycled? Actually, you can’t be looking at it. You’ll get the same bold colors and vibrant patterns from a recycled piece of granite as you would with a slab from the quarry. The difference is that with recycling, you’re helping the environment.

Here is the mission statement from Taken For Granite. “We are a locally-owned business operating in Chattanooga, Tennessee. We focus on making Chattanooga a cleaner, greener place by recycling granite and turning it into beautiful tiles for any interior or exterior project. Recycled granite is a great way to go green while still being gorgeous.”

The company has developed working relationships with several other businesses who find themselves with leftover granite. All it takes is for a quick drop off of the granite for it to be put back into use. That is the same kind of operating philosophy behind Junk King’s eco-friendly disposal policies. Since they’ve been collecting junk, Junk King has made it a point to keep as much rubbish out of local landfills as possible. They’ve maintained a healthy 60% diversion rate that translates into several tons of junk being repurposed every week.

Junk King crews are trained to spot those items and materials that can be dropped off at a recycling center such as e-waste, scrap metal, appliances and granite. Another level of recycling happens when Junk King makes drop offs at charitable organizations. There is where things like furniture, clothing, toys, books and appliances can be give an new lease on life. You should feel good about turning your junk over to Junk King, knowing it won’t be going to waste.

You should also feel good with Junk King’s pricing policies. You’ll be charged a flat rate based on how much space your junk takes up on the back of the truck. One rate covers everything. Rubbish removal and junk recycling is easy when you give the job to Junk King.
