E-Waste Disposal: The Importance of Recycling

The world has an e-waste problem—producing about 50 million tons of electronic waste a year. Only 20% of this waste is formally recycled. Some of it is discarded in landfills, but the fate of most of it remains unknown.

So, how can you dispose of your e-waste in an eco-conscious manner? See, the problem is that e-waste contains substances that can be extremely harmful to humans and the environment. Heavy metals such as mercury, cadmium, and lead are common in electronic products, and having them leak into the soil and water sources is incredibly detrimental to human health.

In this blog, we’ll weigh in on the growing challenge that is e-waste disposal and detail the ways in which Junk King can help you contribute to a cleaner, safer environment.

What Is E-Waste?

Electronic waste or “e-waste” refers to almost any personal, business, or household items with circuitry or electrical components. Because of the fast-paced nature of technological advancements, mountains of once-loved but now obsolete devices ranging from smartphones to computers are now littering landfills in virtually every country.

As everyone strives for a newer, better product, electronic waste is becoming the world’s fastest-growing solid-waste stream. Due to a weak e-waste disposal regulatory system, the onus is now on individuals to properly dispose of their old printers, computer monitors, and TV sets.

If you’re wondering what to do with the outdated fax machines or refrigerators in your home or office, Junk King provides safe, efficient, and, more importantly, eco-friendly e-waste disposal services. We remove and dispose of almost all types of e-waste, including:

  • Computers
  • Computer monitors
  • Printers ad copy machines
  • Fax machines
  • Shredders
  • VCRs
  • Video games and consoles
  • Stereo systems
  • CD and DVD players
  • Televisions
  • Radios

If you have an item that’s not on the list, simply contact our customer service team. We’d be glad to answer any questions you might have. Even then, we pick up just about everything as long as it’s not hazardous.

E-Waste Disposal With Junk King Marin

You probably have some broken-down electronics in your home or office. Who doesn’t?  Unfortunately, e-waste disposal is not as simple as throwing your old or unwanted items in the trash along with the rest of your garbage.

For one, electronics waste is hazardous, but it’s also extremely recyclable. And let’s face it: someone would love your old TV. Unless completely dead, electronics can always be repaired and reused. So, the best way to dispose of your e-waste is to donate. If you can’t donate it, recycle.

But donation and recycling can be a hassle. First, you have to find donation and recycling centers that will take your old items, and then you have to figure out transportation. Plus, due to toxic materials and chemicals, many curbside recycling companies don’t take in electronic waste. You’ll have to find specialized recycling companies for that.

So, where should your electronic waste go? Now, this is where Junk King Marin comes in. As a leading provider of junk removal services, you know we’ve taken the time to customize our service offering to include responsible e-waste disposal.

Do you have a haul of electronics you’d like to unload? Let us help.

We’ll Help You Recycle

The disposal of some electronic materials is highly regulated by state and federal laws. For instance, did you know that you cannot dispose of your old cathode ray TV tube in a landfill? Doing so will leave you liable to hefty fines. In fact, it’s dangerous to haphazardly dispose of any LCD-flat screen TVs and computer monitors that were manufactured before 2009. Just one computer can contain hundreds of hazardous chemicals, making them troublesome to dispose of or incinerate.

Junk King Marin has the resources to skillfully dispose of all your e-waste. We have specialized disposal services for large household appliances such as washers, dryers, freezers, microwaves, robotic vacuum devices, and breadmakers. We can also help you safely get rid of your old TV set.

Once we pick up your e-waste, we’ll transfer them to our recycling stations, where we’ll dismantle and sort items by type: metal, glass, plastic, and other materials. Then the parts will be recycled into new products. If your items are in good enough condition to be reused, we’ve partnered with donation centers and non-profit organizations all through Marin County to ensure your appliances and devices get the second home they deserve.

The parts that can’t be recycled will be disposed of ethically and as environmentally responsible as possible.

What Is Yard Waste And How Should You Get Rid Of It?

Piled-up yard waste can create quite a several problems. These are all problems you will want to and can avoid by removing this waste from your yard. Junk King Marin provides prompt and professional yard waste removal services.

For starters, a build-up of leaves and other debris can be pretty unsightly, an eyesore taking away from your property’s curb appeal. Secondly, the pile-up will create thatch, which, if allowed to sit on your soil for too long, will stand in the way of the soil receiving enough water and sunlight, which, by extension, will affect grass and plant growth. 

Again, leaves and other yard debris clog gutters and drain pipes, interfering with your property’s overall drainage system. Lastly, you cannot ignore the safety repercussions that come with letting twigs and other debris, which are trip hazards, lying around in your yard. You have to be careful, especially if you have kids and pets.

Large Bags filled with Yard Waste

What Is Yard Waste?

Also known as green waste or vegetative waste, yard waste includes any type of organic waste that is left over from garden and lawn care and landscaping. This includes leaves, tree trimmings, grass clippings, and small twigs.

Keeping your landscape looking pristine and well-manicured will create a lot of this yard waste. You want to get rid of the waste as soon as possible, so it doesn’t overshadow all the great landscaping work you have done.

Heavy storms also tend to litter lawns with leaves and other debris. You may also want to schedule yard waste removal after such a storm.

Reliable Service

The recent past has seen several laws come into effect that ban yard waste from landfills. This has led most local garbage collectors and junk removal companies to shy away from accepting trash bags filled with any type of yard waste.

How Long Will Yard Waste Removal Take?

No two jobs are ever the same, which is why, even with years of experience, we may not be able to give a definite answer to this question. Why? Because it depends on several factors. How much needs to be hauled away, for example, is a primary consideration. Again, you expect our team to take a shorter time if you are well prepared; that is, you have all the waste bagged and ready for pick up.

We seek to deliver excellence at every job, including ensuring there are no unnecessary delays while we are at it. Professional training, coupled with years of experience and an unmatched passion for what we do, ensures that we do every yard waste removal job right and in good time.
