Chicago E-Waste Recycling And Pickup

Setting up an efficient e-waste recycling program can be a bit of a challenge. That is what the Solid Waste Agency of Lake County discovered when they had to shut down their recycling program back in December. The problem was that the vendors they were utilizing were making the entire program cost prohibitive. This was actually a program that had been in operation since 1999 and was the biggest in the state. After some reassessment, SWALCO was able to start the program back up. This “on again/off again” situation has probably left a lot of folks confused about what to do with their e-waste. Actually, the answer is quite simple. Just call Junk King and they’ll handle everything from start to finish.

Even with the new program sponsored by SWALCO, you still have to find a way to get your e-waste to one of their designated drop off sites. This means searching the website to find the site that is closest to you. Then you’ll be loading up your car and devoting a couple of hours to the process. Of course, you can only make the drop offs at a time that works for them not for you. The better approach would be to hire Junk King. They’ll send a two-man crew out to your home at a time that works for your schedule. The Junk King crew will then remove and load up whatever e-waste you want taken care off. They’ll see to it that it is dropped off at a certified facility. The problem will be solved and you won’t have to lift a finger.

Along with taking care of your e-waste recycling needs, Junk King can also handle the removal of all the rest of your bulky clutter. You’ll have full use of that two-man crew and truck whether you’re loading up just a few computers or an entire garage full of junk. You might as well put them to work!

Make Your 2015 Resolution for Chicago Junk Removal

There is an old saying that says how you spend midnight on New Year’s Eve is how you’ll spend the rest of the year. If you were surrounded by loved ones and friends, then you’re in good shape. If you already passed out in bed, then it might be time to rework some things. Making a New Year’s resolution is all about giving you a chance to start fresh. For many folks that means breaking bad habits. Along with smoking and too much junk food, creating clutter around the house is a perfect bad habit to break. For the little stuff like keys, mail, shoes and jackets placing bins or hooks at strategic spots will go a long way towards your decluttering resolution. As for the bigger objects to get rid of you’ll need to bring in the pros from Junk King.

Junk King are the professional junk removal experts who have literally removed tons of junk out of Chicago area homes. When you get right down to it, it’s not hard to create a ton of junk. After all, researchers state that everyone makes up to 4 pounds of garbage a day. In a year, that’s close to a ton and that’s just trash you throw out in the garbage. For the big stuff like furniture, appliances and e-waste, Junk King will set you up with a two-man moving crew. Basically, if it took two people to bring something into your home, then it’s going to take two people to bring it out. That is what Junk King offers with their service. Not only will you get the moving crew, but you also get use of a truck big enough to hold whatever you’re hauling away.

Along with all that lifting and loading, Junk King provides an added bonus of reducing your carbon footprint. They accomplish that by making sure whatever can be donated or recycled will be. Any time something can be repurposed, it’s a good thing for the environment. You don’t even have to ask. The recycling and donating will be done automatically.

Junk King will also help you save money. If you had to price out hiring a crew, renting a truck, paying dump fees and giving up a day of your time it would be a very expensive proposition. Junk King is only going to charge you a flat rate based on how much space your junk takes up on the truck. Fair, fast and affordable junk removal. That’s how Junk King rolls.
