Colorado Recycling – An Award Winning Endeavor

Did you know that if you live in Colorado you could actually win an award for recycling? The Colorado Association of Recycling offers up an annual award that “recognizes governmental entities, individuals, companies, media and organizations for their excellence in recycling or promotion of recycling.” They have encouraged citizens to make nominations on behalf of exceptional recyclers in several categories including Outstanding Media Coverage, Outstanding Elected Official, Outstanding Outreach – Educational Institution, Outstanding Outreach –Municipality (City, County, or State), Outstanding Business Recycling/Diversion Program, Outstanding Government Recycling/Diversion Program, Outstanding Volunteer Of the Year and Recycler of the Year. There is even a Lifetime Achievement award presented by the organization to that individual or business which has dedicated themselves to the recycling way of life.
One recycling program that has already received praise is the University of Colorado’s program which was started back in 1976. Thanks to this program the entire CU campus has become eco-friendly. The National Recycling Coalition awarded their prestigious Outstanding School Program award to the university for their continuing efforts to recycle and educate students about environmental friendly policies.
So, how would you rate your own recycling abilities? Are you “award worthy?” Thanks to increased awareness and easier access, Colorado has moved up the ranks of states who have improved their recycling. There are three basic options when it comes to individual recycling. You can either sort for curbside pickup, drop off on your own or donate to a charity center. The easiest of those options would be the curbside pickup. Once you’ve committed to the recycling program it becomes a matter of routine to separate out your plastics, papers, glass and metals.
What some folks don’t realize is that whenever possible, it’s always best to rinse items like milk jugs, juice cartons or bottles. Remember that these materials will still be passed through machines and grinders both of which are manned by workers. Having clean materials to work with makes the recycling facility environment that much nicer.
For drop off recycling, you can take the same types of refuse that you recycle at home. However, these centers are really meant for those kinds of items which couldn’t be picked up. Basically this means e-waste or hazardous materials. Both of those kinds of junk need to be disposed of properly. The e-waste can be broken down for components such as glass monitor tubes, metal casings for hard drives and plastics from computer keyboards. As for hazardous waste, these would be all those solvents, cleaners and cans of unused paint you might have sitting around your home or garage. The reason you probably are hanging onto these items is because you know you can’t merely pour them down the drain or toss them out with the trash.
As for charity recycling, there are many organizations in Colorado that will offer pickup services for items to be recycled that could benefit their own programs. Of course, you also have the option of going independent by hiring a professional and ec0-friendly hauling company like Junk King who can come by and in one easy trip gather up all your recyclable junk from old furniture and mattresses to yard waste. Just remember, the more you can recycle the better chance you have of winning!  For Junk King’s eco-friendly hauling services simply call 1-888-888-JUNK.

Colorado Junk Recycling

It all started with one tire.  Now the Midway, Colorado tire dump is home to over 30 million discarded tires. That is around 7.5 million cars worth of tires. If left to rot, those tires can cause a lot of trouble for the surrounding area. And one lightning strike could set the mound ablaze which can pour noxious fumes into the atmosphere. Luckily there is solution underway.

A Colorado recycling company has taken over ownership of the tires and plans to recycle them to a plant in Pueblo which will use them for an alternative form of fuel. It’s win/win all around. Most Colorado junk recycling doesn’t happen on such a massive scale. However, you can reduce your own carbon footprint by hiring a local company that specializes in junk removal and recycling.

As any green advocate knows, there are the three “R’s” of recycling: recycle, re-purpose and reuse. What does that mean for your old junk? When you hire a Colorado junk recycling crew, they will come by your home to pick up all your discarded garbage. We’re not talking about the weekly trash pick-up but about those bigger items you’ve have scattered around the house and backyard. Things like broken kitchen appliances, auto parts that will never make it back into a car and discarded building scraps. Then there are all the old mattresses, sofas and chairs which have seen better days and now need to go away.  A professional Colorado junk recycling team can have all of those items gone in a matter of minutes.

This is when the re-purpose phase kicks into gear. No matter what type of junk you are recycling, there is probably more than one component that needs to be broken down and separated. The sofa is made of cloth, foam, wood and metal. That’s four different re-purposing piles. Do you know where all the various recycling plants are located in Colorado? You don’t have to know when you hire an experienced junk hauling company.

For the reuse part of the three “R’s” all those different elements are sorted and delivered to the manufacturers who turn them into fresh products. You’ve seen shopping bags or greeting cards with the “made from recycled”  materials on them? Paper is actually the easiest item to recycle. It’s merely a matter of grinding it into pulp, washing it down then reconstituting it into fresh reams.

What’s great about hiring a junk hauling company that recycles is that the most effort you have to exert is dialing them on the phone. Junk professionals will come out to your place and assess the volume of material you want hauled away and recycled. You’ll then schedule an appointment for the haulers to come and take away all your junk. This crew should be licensed and bonded because you don’t want to let just anyone into your home. Then all you have to do is point to the junk you want taken away. That’s even less effort then making the phone call! The best way to keep Colorado clean is to recycle. Take a survey of your home today and see what you can recycle, repurpose and reuse.
