Recently GreenSource Cincinnati held an event downtown to allow folks drop off their e-waste. What they accepted where any kind of cables, CD-ROM drives, cell phones, circuit boards, computer speakers, monitors, DVD players, fact sheet, hard drives, keyboards, laptops, LCD monitors, mainframes, microwaves, modems, personal copiers, printers, scanners, speakers, telephones, televisions, terminals and VCR. Pretty much anything that has to do with electricity they collected except for batteries or light bulbs.
GreenSource is a local based organization dedicated to making Cincinnati as environmentally friendly as possible. While this event is certainly a benefit, it was only held on one day and only from 8 AM until noon. That’s a pretty small window of opportunity when it comes to being eco-friendly. If you couldn’t make that deadline chances are you might shrug off the idea of recycling your computer or other e-waste and instead tuck them back into closets and under beds. There is a better way and that’s by using Junk King Cincinnati, who is dedicated to this kind of junk recycling.
Computer recycling involves taking apart a hard drive or monitor and breaking it down to its basic components. While each one of those components aren’t necessarily a hazard if they were to be broken open or smashed up like your regular garbage it could release some toxic chemicals that might be a problem. That’s why when it comes to computer recycling it should only be handled by trained workers. While it is true that the professional junk haulers might not know the proper way dismantle the computer they will certainly know where to drop it off to get that job done.
That’s a big plus with hiring professionals like Junk King for this kind of job: they know where all the Cincinnati recycling centers are. You could make the most out of this opportunity by getting these same junk haulers to take away all the other clutter that’s crowding you out of your own home. After they drop off your computer at one recycling center they can then drop off your sofa at another and your old stove at yet another. While this might seem like a lot of work it’s no big deal to these junk haulers because it’s part of the regular circuit they drive every day. Even if they have to make multiple stops where all your junk is properly recycled it’s not going to add to the cost of hiring the skilled workers.
Freeing up space in your home is essential to create a more positive flow of energy. While that might sound like a “New Age” way of thinking there is some truth to that. Don’t you feel better walking into your home after it’s been thoroughly cleaned? Of course you do! Once you get rid of all your junk and electronic waste you can multiply those feelings!
