When we first opened Junk King we were amazed at the number of calls we got from people in the Columbus area who wanted us to pick up and recycle an old television or monitor.
While we are located in Dublin and a majority of our appointments are from here, Columbus, Hilliard, Upper Arlington, Worthington, Westerville, New Albany and Delaware, the fact of the matter is that central Ohio is home to over 2 million people. Tube-type displays are heavy and bulky; large, flat-screen TVs are…well, large. Beyond that they contain mercury and other heavy metals, which means they can’t go into the regular trash (legally and environmentally speaking).
Needless to say, if you are researching television recycling you are not alone. Very few, if any, local municipalities offer this service and while there are places that accept drop-offs, you have to find them and visit on their schedule—which in all likelihood are the same hours that you have to work. Not to mention lugging a big, bulky, possibly heavy TV…and that’s assuming you can do it yourself. Otherwise, you must recruit a friend or loved one to help.
It can eat up a lot of time and effort…Or you can call us!
Our appointment line is 1-800-995-JUNK (5865) and we can often come out the same day you call. Beyond that we are concerned with the environment and we recycle everything thing we can. With TVs and monitors that means 100% is recycled so it never ends up in a landfill leaching heavy metals into the groundwater. The same is true for all the electronics and appliances we take in, be it a laptop, old stereo components, or a Super Nintendo that finally gave up the ghost.
If it is a serviceable item we try to donate it to a local charity but in most cases, we recycle them en masse. Truth be told, it feels really good to realize the volume of items that we reuse or recycle in one way or another that won’t end up in a landfill somewhere; most of our customers share this sentiment.
We have some of the lowest prices in the industry and professional, uniformed, bonded and insured teams who will come to you and pick up TVs, monitors, electronics and just about anything else you want us to get out of your way. It’s pretty common for people to also realize they have other stuff they’d like us to clear out and to decide to kill two birds with one stone—maybe even clean out the basement while we’re at it.
We operate every day but Sunday and we service all of Franklin County and parts of all the surrounding counties. If you have specific questions you can call the appointment line above or our local number can be found on our website: northcolumbus.junk-king.com
