Eco-friendly Ways to Reuse Broken Concrete

Concrete is generally a hard material that can serve for several years. But when it’s time to remove and haul away a large concrete feature, it shouldn’t mean that the material needs to be thrown out. Although broken concrete pieces may be an eyesore on their own, there are numerous eco-friendly ways of reusing them besides simply sending them to the landfill.

Construction materials, such as broken concrete typically account for around 40% of the American 251 million tons of waste yearly. As an eco-conscious business, it’s important to learn ways of reusing or recycling any construction debris to keep them out of landfills.

Here are four eco-friendly ways to make the most of your broken concrete after a construction or renovation job:

1. Reuse for Landscaping

Piles of Broken ConcreteAlthough regular concrete is a relatively eco-friendly construction material, modern concrete production processes often utilize energy and raw materials. Reusing existing concrete material to update your landscaping is an eco-friendly move as it both saves energy and keeps the old materials out of landfills.

Whichever style of landscaping you desire for your property, you will likely find a way to reuse old concrete. One innovative way to do that is to build fire pits, edge-raised garden beds, or stone walls. You could also construct stone sheds or even set the broken concrete pieces into the ground to serve as stepping stones for garden paths.

Alternatively, you can use broken concrete to create a wildlife habitat on your property. Simply stack the concrete pieces into a shallow hole to simulate a natural rock pile. This can provide much-needed shelter for native creatures such as chipmunks and lizards.

2. Donate to a Friend or Colleague

If your property is situated near a larger city or town, you may be able to locate someone in your area who can take away broken concrete pieces from your yard. They’ll then reuse them in one of their construction, landscaping, or similar projects.

Giving away the materials locally is just as eco-friendly as reusing them yourself. The process does not require any processing, and due to the close proximity, very little transportation energy will be used.

3. Recycle for New Construction

Your concrete cutting contractor may likely have plenty of experience and connections in the construction industry. If you don’t plan to deal with the old concrete, a building contractor may be able to haul it away for eco-friendly recycling. But be sure to specify that you’d like to have the materials recycled and not just disposed of in landfills.

Concrete is such a versatile building material that it has numerous applications even in new construction. For example, old concrete can be crushed up and added to new concrete as it is mixed. It can also be broken into rubble and utilized as an aggregate material for the sub-layer of a new road.

So, all it takes is a little forethought and planning to be able to avoid the environmental impact that comes with sending construction materials to the landfill.

4: Working with a Junk Hauling Company

Professional junk haulers have the experience and expertise to hauls away and safely dispose of old or broken concrete. They use proper lifting techniques to avoid injuries related to poor ergonomics, such as backaches and splintered hands.

With highly sophisticated equipment such as jackhammers, skid steer loaders, sledges, and 6 wheeled trucks, a professional junk hauler ensures better maneuverability and lowered payloads.

You can engage the services of a junk hauler to perform any of the following:

  • Hauling large piles of concrete left over from a demolition or construction project
  • Getting rid of old cracked concrete piles sitting for ages on your property
  • Hauling remnants of abandoned projects in an old property
  • Cutting and hauling old leftover concrete stairs
  • Clearing unwanted slabs of concrete to make room for hardcore or sod

Professional junk haulers typically use dump trucks for all concrete hauling jobs to ensure optimum safety for personnel and your driveway. So, there is no room for wimpy pick-up trucks here! A one-ton full-size pick-up truck can safely haul up to 2,000 lbs. of concrete. Other common safety equipment haulers use include:

  • Sturdy leather gloves
  • Hard hats
  • Dust Masks
  • Eye protection goggles
  • Steel toe boots

Bottom Line

Choosing to recycle broken concrete can be a big boost for the environment and companies or municipalities looking for raw building materials or repurposed aggregate building materials for road construction. But, if you want your construction and demolition debris hauled away right away, you can always count on Jung King for competitive fees and two-hour service windows. Contact us today for more information on how we can help you dispose of your broken concrete in an eco-friendly manner!

What You Should Know About Household Waste Disposal

Disposing of household waste is a job for the proven professionals.  Ask anyone who has tried DIY household waste disposal on their own and you will find it was challenging in all regards.  In fact, most people who attempt to dispose of their household waste end up quitting and leaning on the proven waste disposal experts for assistance.  If you have any household waste or other items you want eliminated from your living space, our team is here to lend a helping hand.

We Embrace the Challenge of Disposing Household Waste

Piles of trash Most people are not exactly eager to dispose of household waste and other old, broken and dirty items simply because it involves hard work.  However, Junk King is more than willing to break a sweat hauling all the household waste from your home.

In particular, people wonder how to best dispose of electronics, appliances, chemicals, batteries and paint.  Such household waste is problematic in that it has the potential to leak into the soil and water, compromising our increasingly sensitive planet.  We go to great lengths to repurpose non-hazardous items. Some such items can be recycled or donated to those in need.  Let us haul away all of your household waste and you will rest easy knowing that we maximized their utility rather than simply dumping them in the local landfill.

Not all Household Waste is the Same

Household waste is typically divided between the hazardous variety and the non-hazardous variety.  Hazardous household waste presents a danger to the planet, wildlife and even people.  The bottom line is it is a mistake to put such hazardous items into the garbage. If you were to put batteries, electronics, paint or other harmful items into your trash can, they would be transported to a landfill and ultimately contribute to the destruction of our planet.

As an example, herbicides, motor oil, paint, gasoline and bug sprays are hazardous waste materials.  When in doubt, lean on our team to differentiate hazardous waste from non-hazardous waste and perform a green haul that does not compromise the planet in any way.  Even if the item in question poses a threat to our team and we cannot haul it away, we will provide helpful guidance that makes it that much easier for you to dispose of the items in question in an environmentally-friendly manner.

Household Waste Disposal Done Right

Junk King is willing to haul away your household waste as long as it is not hazardous.  This means we are ready to haul away your old mattresses, box springs, boxes, yard debris, old books, some electronic items and household sundries.  Our reasoning for not hauling away hazardous materials is that they pose a threat to our employees and also the planet.

If you are uncertain as to how to dispose of a hazardous item, ask our team when they arrive to perform the haul as to the best approach for disposal.  It will also help to read the label on the item, contact your local government or reach out to the company/store that originally sold the product.  Though some such items lack an informative label, many have small print on the back or bottom that details how the product is to be disposed of without damaging the planet, animals, people, etc.

We Will Prioritize Your Household Waste Disposal

If you have any question as to whether the items you need hauled away are hazardous, simply reach out to our team.  We haul away 99% of the items our customers request to be disposed of.  The remaining 1% are actually illegal for our team to remove as they must be handled in a careful manner to safeguard our environment for future generations of humanity and wildlife.

Let us handle your household waste disposal project and we will prioritize your project, especially if you are preparing to move or have an abundance of items that are getting in the way.  Our goal is to exceed your expectations to the point that you are motivated to recommend Junk King hauling services to friends, colleagues, family and  your neighbors.

Why Worry About Mattress Disposal?

Mattresses only last so long before they become uncomfortable.  If you haven’t been sleeping right, it is time to make a change by getting rid of that old mattress in favor of a new one.  Junk King Marin is here to do the hauling on your behalf so a new mattress can be delivered and used right away.  Our mattress disposal specialists have mattress removal down to a science.  Lean on us to haul away this bulky item from your home and you won’t spend a single second worrying about the removal process.

Mattress Disposal Done Properly

old matress and furniture outside on curbResist the temptation to drag your mattress out to the curb by yourself or with the help of a family member or friend.  Even if you succeed in moving the mattress from your bedroom to the curb, you will have other problems including the potential for the local garbage haulers to overlook the mattress or simply ignore it.  After all, large items such as mattresses are not picked up every garbage cycle.  Rather, there are designated pick up days for such bulk waste.  Furthermore, there is the potential for you to damage your doorways, floors and even your body as you attempt to drag the mattress to the curb.

Why bother worrying about the small stuff of mattress removal when our team is here to do the work on your behalf?  Let us perform mattress disposal at your home, hotel or other business and you won’t spend any time worrying about the removal process.  Our hauling specialists have mastered the mattress disposal process.  We are mindful of you, your property and your automobiles.  Put your faith in our mattress disposal team and you won’t have to worry about any damage to your property when your mattress is hauled away.

Don’t Burden Yourself With the Heavy Lifting

You have enough stress in your life.  Don’t add the prospect of lifting a heavy mattress and dragging it to the curb to your current stresses.  Even if your mattress is in the basement, the attic or elsewhere, our team will gladly lift it and haul it on your behalf.  Our team lifts the mattress, puts it in the hauling van and transports it away from your property.  This is the comprehensive service you need to finally get rid of that old and uncomfortable mattress for good.  You won’t have to do any of the lifting and your property won’t have the black eye of a mattress sitting at the curb.  It simply does not get any easier or more efficient than that.

Green Mattress Disposal You can Feel Good About

Wouldn’t it be nice if your mattress were disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner?  That is exactly what our junk haulers do.  We transport mattresses to recycling facilities so they do not harm the planet or take up unnecessary space.  Your recycled mattress will be converted into other useful items that help maintain the sustainability of our increasingly fragile ecosystem.  In fact, every aspect of our hauling service is green.  We go to great lengths to ensure our carbon footprint is as small as possible and guarantee we do not cause harm to a planet that future generations of humanity and wildlife will call home.

Disposing of mattresses in a green manner is inherently difficult yet it is a challenge we embrace.  We exhaust all possible avenues for mattress and box spring recycling and repurposing.  We refuse to drop off mattresses and box springs into the typical dump sites as these large items contain chemicals that poison the surrounding environment.  In fact, if the mattress can be used, it will be donated to an individual in need.  However, the majority of mattresses are recycled, ultimately helping to minimize waste and maintain the environment.

Mattress Disposal Made Easy

If you are hesitant to ask for assistance with mattress disposal, don’t fret!  We make mattress disposal easy and efficient.  Our mattress disposal specialists will arrive at your home, hotel or other building at your chosen time, perform mattress disposal in a completely green manner and do all the work on your behalf.  In fact, we even sweat the small stuff by calling ahead 15 minutes prior to arriving to haul away your mattress.  Feel free to estimate the cost and there are no hidden fees to worry about when relying on our hauling specialists to dispose of your mattress.

Want to get rid of Your Construction Waste? Let Our Haulers do the Dirty Work

Constructing a new building, an addition or anything else will result in waste.  Even renovating or remodeling your home or business will lead to the generation of waste.  You have better things to do than attempt to remove construction waste in a green, thorough and timely manner.  Let our construction waste haulers handle these materials on your behalf and you won’t spend a single second worrying about how to best dispose of them.

Every Worksite Benefits From Construction Waste Removal

Ask anyone who has worked construction or has lived/worked in a building where construction has occurred about the annoyance of construction waste and you will be inundated with complaints.  Construction waste is hazardous, visually distracting and has the potential to accumulate to the point that it seems ubiquitous.  Instead of leaving construction waste in place, lean on our team to haul it away on your behalf.

We sweat all the small stuff of construction waste removal so you don’t have to.  Lean on our team to get rid of these items that have fallen to the wayside during construction projects and you will be liberated to square your focus on actual construction challenges or other matters.  This is the comprehensive cleanup assistance you need to make your worksite clean, safe, non-hazardous and as enjoyable as possible for personnel.

Consider the Ramifications of Bypassing Construction Waste Hauling

Though you can certainly leave construction waste in place, assuming it will eventually be picked up, scattered around or simply left in place, this approach will backfire.  Construction waste is inherently hazardous to workers as well as pedestrians who pass by and most importantly, the property owners.  From nails to wood with splinters, tiling, heavy steel, flammable wood and beyond, construction waste poses a direct threat to everyone at the worksite.  The last thing you should do is simply leave these items in place, assuming everyone working and passing by the construction site will be able to avoid them.

Though hauling construction waste is challenging in that the items are of varying sizes and weights, doing so is in your interest.  Once our team has hauled all the waste away from your construction site, you will rest easy knowing it no longer poses a safety hazard to everyone who works there or ventures onto the worksite.  This sense of peace is truly invaluable both in terms of stress relief as well as avoiding a potential personal injury lawsuit or workers’ compensation claim.

Our crew will pick up and properly dispose of all the worksite debris so you don’t have to.  Whether you would like frequent disposal that occurs at scheduled times during the construction project or junk removal after the project is complete, our team will do the work on your behalf.  Simply tell us where your worksite is, the type of construction debris we will be hauling and select your day and time for removal.  Our team will haul the waste with our junk removal trucks at the quoted price without any surprise fees.

Examples of Construction Waste Removal

Most construction sites are laden with all sorts of debris, most of which have little-to-no value.  From discarded pieces of flooring to wallboard, sheetrock, remnants of drywall, scattered tiling, general debris and beyond, we collect and haul away construction waste of all types.  Furthermore, our team also gathers and hauls discarded shingles, frames, windows, plasterboard, corrugated iron and even concrete.  As long as the items in question are not excessively massive or pose a hazard to our crew, we will haul them away from your construction site in an efficient and thorough manner.

If you have any questions as to whether the items at your construction site will be picked up by your team, don’t hesitate to reach out to us for more information.  Contact us and you will find our comprehensive cleanup and hauling assistance is exactly what you need to shift your attention to your next project rather than worrying about sweating the small stuff resulting from the latest build or renovation.

Top 6 Fast and Efficient Garden Waste Collection Methods

A beautiful and well-maintained garden goes a long way in improving your home value. It is among the first thing that people notice when they set feet in your compound, and, therefore, you should ensure that it is always in its best shape. However, while garden maintenance leaves a healthy and lush garden, the project leaves you with a heap of green waste to deal with. How do you go about the garden waste collection? Luckily, you have more than one garden waste collection method at your disposal. Read on for insightful tips!

Garden Waste for Composts

man removing garden waste in wheel barrowCreating compost from green waste is among the easiest and most beneficial garden waste collection methods. It requires fewer resources, and if done right, compost does an excellent job of enriching your garden soil. It helps you save money that you would have spent on inorganic fertilizer, not to forget that it is an opportunity to protect the environment. You can easily create compost by storing the waste in old garbage bins or wooden boxes. If you lack either of these, make a garden waste heap in the backyard for some days, and you will have your manure ready for use. The aim is to keep the waste materials in a controlled environment to facilitate green waste breakdown. You can check out articles and videos online for tutorials on how to go about this project.

Green Waste Bins

Depending on your locality, you may have access to council waste bins, which have been put in place to give home and business owners an efficient garden waste collection method. The best part about disposing of your garden waste in a council green waste bin is that the materials are eventually recycled and later distributed to landscapers and nurseries for compost creation. You, therefore, get to save the environment and offer valuable raw materials for a beneficial course. Most of this waste is processed in customized facilities where the materials are sorted, passed through grinders, and are well-covered and heated to reduce the emission of foul smell and kill pathogens. The green waste is also cleaned to get rid of metals before it is repurposed in backyards. Nonetheless, before disposing of garden waste in a green waste bin, you should do background research to determine the kind of waste allowed in your municipality.

Grasscycling

Very few individuals understand what grasscycling is and how it works. As the name suggests, this garden waste collection method is more like recycling to manage the waste you produce at the end of the garden maintenance project. Besides helping you save the environment, grasscycling provides you with mulch and necessary nutrition for the plants. Rather than disposing of the plants after mowing or weeding, you distribute it in your garden, thus reducing fertilizers’ cost.

Donate to Charities

As unbelievable as this may sound, a lot of local charity organizations out there accept garden waste. You can quickly locate a local charity organization that takes domestic garden waste by researching online. Also, make sure to check the rules and regulations that must be followed when donating the waste.  Most organizations will accept any waste as long as it is organic and safe for reuse. Donating is a cheap yet life-changing garden waste collection method. You do not necessarily need money to impact and put a smile on a needy person.

Contact a Local Garden Waste Recycling Facility

Nearly every locality has a waste service and recycling facility to minimize waste in landfills. By choosing this garden waste collection method, you will be taking part in an environmental conservation initiative while evading the landfill taxes. Most recycling facilities offer free services, but you may need to pay a small fee for garden waste disposal. Make sure to contact the company first to establish if they accept garden waste and if you have to transport the materials to the facility.

Junk Removal Company for Garden Waste Collection

Seeking the help of a junk removal company is, by far, the most convenient garden waste collection method. The idea comes with a range of benefits, including saving time, money, and offering convenience. With a reliable junk removal company, you do not have to worry about waste hauling and transportation. They will come to your site and handle all the tedious tasks for you at a fair price.

Broken Concrete Recycling Guide

Are you wondering what you should do with broken concrete after a construction or demolition project? By now, you know that disposing of concrete, asphalt, and other bulky building materials is one of the most stressful processes to handle after construction, renovation, or demolition.

Luckily, you have many disposal methods to choose from, including recycling and reusing, donating to non-profit organizations, renting a roll-off dumpster, or entrusting the disposal to a junk removal company. The ideal broken concrete removal process will entirely depend on your location, budget plans, and convenience.

While each of the mentioned disposal methods has its pros and cons, recycling has proven to be the most efficient of them all. If you choose to recycle the concrete, you can reuse it at the construction site, contact a recycling facility for the services, donate or entrust the process to a junk removal company.

How Can You Recycle Broken Concrete?

broken concrete and wall Broken concrete can be put in various uses, including;

  • As asphalt pavement base where you crush the concrete and utilize it as a base before adding a layer of asphalt
  • You can use it for your parking lot, driveway, or walking paths to minimize runoffs
  • The concrete can be used for landscaping mulch where you crush it and use it in place of gravel
  • You may use it as concrete aggregate in a concrete mixture rather than sourcing new concrete
  • Broken concrete can be reused to create an erosion barrier

Benefits of Recycling Concrete

Regardless of the method you choose for concrete recycling, the idea comes with a range of benefits, including;

Promotes Sustainability

Unlike back in the days when all construction wastes were directed to landfills, you have the opportunity to change the narrative and protect the environment. Concrete takes up a lot of space, which gives the individuals working at the landfill a hard time sorting the materials and moving them to another site for better use. By recycling and reusing the concrete in other construction projects, you will be making both an economical and ecologically viable decision.

Protect the Environment

As earlier mentioned, recycling broken concrete eliminates the strain and stress on landfill sites. If you have been to a landfill before, you understand how messy the places can be, considering that nearly all home and business wastes are directed to those sites. Adding inorganic wastes like concrete is a huge deal and will facilitate a range of environmental pollution problems such as air and water pollution. Putting the broken concrete to better use will eliminate the need to create more landfill sites. This, in return, helps to conserve the environment.

Recycling Broken Concrete Saves Cost

For starters, recycling concrete saves you the tipping fee paid at landfills and other disposal facilities. Moreover, you get to save on the amount of time spent dealing with the rubble, not to forget that reusing concrete directly impacts construction costs. Recycled concrete is less costly compared to freshly mined aggregate, making it an invaluable tool in construction.

Besides construction, there are other useful ways to recycle broken chunks. The large pieces can be crushed and converted into riprap revetments. These are used to prevent soil erosion in waterways and riverbanks. Moreover, you may pack the large pieces into steel gabions to offer extra support on the walls or use it for screening walls.

Save on Time and Labor

Removing construction debris from the construction or demolition site is both time-consuming and labor-intensive. Transporting the material to a disposal site and then sorting them out to establish the reusable concrete is even more time-consuming. It adds to the cost, something that you can easily avoid through recycling. All you have to do is contact a construction material recycling company and let the dedicated experts haul the materials from your site within no time. You may also choose to feed the broken concrete into a portable crusher, thus saving both time and labor in the long run. Feeding the material into a crusher also reduces the need for producing more material, especially for finishes or during future renovations.

Final Thoughts

From the benefits above, recycling is the wisest way to handle broken concrete after a construction, demolition, or renovation. However, as easy as it may sound, the process requires skills and industrial equipment to separate the concrete from steel, crush and put it into good use. The best way to go about the idea is by entrusting the recycling process to experts. They come prepared with the necessary equipment to haul the materials and get them out of your site within the shortest period.

Junk King Marin is your go-to provider for all your construction material disposal needs. We aim to help you save time and take the stress of handling broken concrete off your shoulder. Contact us today and let us do what we do best. Contact us information.

How to Get Rid of your Old Mattress

Maybe you’ve decided to buy a new mattress. Or maybe you’re shifting to a new place, and everything you own must go. In both cases, you own an old mattress that you might no longer need but have no idea what to do with it.

Mattress Disposal Options

Bed, pillows and MattressThere are several mattress disposal methods, and each has its own merits and demerits. Depending on your location and the shape of your mattress, you will have different options. In this article, we will discuss each mattress disposal method so you can choose one that is suitable for you. Each method has a step by step description of how to go about the process efficiently.

Recycling

Recycling is one of the most eco-friendly and cost-effective methods of disposing of your mattress. 80% of mattresses can be recycled, but before recycling, you have to consider the following factors:

  • Ensure your mattress is free from stains and bugs
  • Find a mattress recycling facility if there’s one in your location.
  • Reach out to the facility to enquire about the cost and pick up services.
  • Prepare your mattress for recycling as instructed by the facility.

Generally, your mattress doesn’t have to be in a perfect shape to be eligible for recycling, and not all states have mattress recycling facilities. For a mattress to be recycled, it has to be broken down into different parts. Soft substances like cotton, polyester and foam are compressed to be used in insulation, padding, textiles and carpet.

Metal, on the other hand, is used as scrap that can be used in construction. Wood is either pulverized for mulching or burnt. Other non-reusable parts are usually disposed of to a landfill.

Donation

Donating a mattress may appear as an easy and less complicated process.  But, several steps need to be followed:

  • Ensure your mattress is in good shape free from stains or any broken components.
  • Find a local charitable organization in your area.
  • Reach out to the organization to inquire if they accept mattress donations. If you have no means of transport, ensure you ask about their pick up services.
  • Give out your mattress and ensure you get a donation receipt.

Donating a mattress comes with no costs unless you have to deliver it to the donation center. Also, if the mattress has to be collected from your home, there’s a possibility of parting with a few coins. This, however, will depend on where you live.

Each locality has its own rules about the types of items eligible for donation. Therefore, it is important that you first inquire from the donation center near you regarding your mattress’ donation decision.

Throwing Away

In some situations, you may not have a choice but to throw your old mattress away. A poorly maintained mattress cannot be eligible for donation or recycling. While you might have seen other people leave their mattresses on the streets, this is not a wise mattress disposal option. Instead, follow these simple steps to junk your mattress:

  • Check with the retailer or manufacturer of your new mattress to confirm whether they offer disposal services.
  • Carry your mattress to the local dumpsite and dispose it. Before that, you will have to reach out to your city council to inquire about the costs associated with junking a mattress at the dumpsite.
  • If you can’t dispose of the mattress, get the quote from the junk hauling services. Ensure the charges are all-inclusive (service, tax, handling or other extra charges).  You can find a local junk removal service provider on the internet if you can’t trace one in your area.
  • Decide on the hauling company that meets your needs and schedule a pickup time and payment.

Reselling

To recover a portion of its original cost, some people chose to sell their old mattresses. If you decide on this option, here are some steps to follow:

  • Gather all the information about the mattress, including the model, size and brand.
  • Analyze its condition. At least, it should be in a relatively ‘fair’ shape for you to get a reasonable value out of it. It should not have stains, and you can vacuum or spot clean it following the manufacturers’ guidelines to freshen it.
  • Decide on a reasonable price. Most people will prefer spending a large amount of money on a new mattress so your price should be fair enough.
  • Post a mattress ad on different social media sites such as Letgo, Next Door and Craigslist. Ensure you include the asking price, images, an honest analysis of the mattress appearance etc.

Give your mattress a decent send-off! You might have come across an improperly disposed of mattress but is that the place where your old mattress belongs? Your mattress served you right for several years. Now, it is your turn to appreciate that by utilizing a safe mattress disposal method. Contact us for more information.

Tips and Ideas for Disposing of Computer Safely

Have your computer been misbehaving lately, and you wish to replace it with a new one? Maybe you have been experiencing system breakdowns or dealing with increased costs of using software licenses. At this point, the computer is irreparable, and the only solution is to get a new one. It could also be that you want to upgrade to a newer brand that will suit your business or personal needs. You should not just throw the old computer away. The gadget contains all types of toxins that are harmful to the environment and everything in it. It contains sensitive business or personal information such as passwords, registration numbers and financial details that you wouldn’t wish to have on the wrong hands. For this, you must think of a safe and convenient computer disposal method before getting a new one.

Computer disposal helps you save space, conserve local resources and by recycling, you get to create new job opportunities. Nonetheless, given the nature of computers, everyone will agree that they are among the hardest to dispose of. In this article, you will find some helpful tips and ideas to help you get rid of a computer safely and efficiently.

Computer Disposal with a Junk Removal Company

Computer wrappedEntrusting the computer disposal process to a certified waste removal company is the most convenient option, especially if the computer is not in a usable condition. The experts will take the computer disposal stress off your shoulder while helping you save time. They will pick the computer from your ideal location and transport it to the recycling plant, where they will disassemble it and put all the components into good use.

Letting a removal company handle the computer disposal task for you is a great way to conserve the environment and allows you to create job opportunities.

Donate Your Old Computer

Donating is the best computer disposal method if the device is in usable shape. Your computer might be old to you, and you feel that it is time to get a better version that you have been eyeing, but the old one is someone else’s dream. Perhaps you know of a friend who has always wanted to venture into the online business world but lacks a good computer for it. It could also be a student struggling to lay their hands on a desktop or laptop for studying. Moreover, there are many charity foundations out there looking for computers to help the less fortunate. This is a chance for you to put a smile on someone’s face.

However, before donating your old computer, make sure it is in decent shape. You should not give out an irreparable item or one that will cost too much to repair. Also, ensure that you delete all personal files before giving it out.

Resell the Computer

Reselling the computer is an easy computer disposal method to help you make fast cash. Many people hope to own a computer but cannot reach the price of a new one. You can put up the computer for sale on social media pages or second-hand platforms such as craigslist for fast buyers. Do not forget to include your location and the asking price. It is highly recommendable that you sell the computer to a local buyer to avoid the shipping cost, keeping in mind that the resale price will not be much.

Before putting up your used computer for sale, check your local area’s requirements to confirm that they allow this. Also, you should not forget to format the device. Again, ensure that the gadget is in good shape for resale and do not overprice it.

Do an Exchange at an Electronic Company

Most computer dealers have an exchange policy for speedy computer disposal, which mainly caters to people who wish to upgrade. All you have to do is take your old gadget to the dealer’s shop, and you will earn some points that you can use when buying a new computer. This means that you will acquire the new one at a discounted price based on the agreed value for the old one.

The computer company will recycle your old gadget and resell it, so you should not be surprised if you see them selling your computer at a much higher price than what you got for compensation. Exchange is the most convenient computer disposal choice if you want a newer brand, but you do not have enough cash for it.

Final Thoughts

Computer disposal may sound hectic, but it gets better with a good plan in place. You have lots of computer disposal methods to choose from based on your location and the gadget’s condition. All the mentioned methods are a great way to reduce landfills, conserve the environment, save money, help the economy thrive and help others grow. Evaluate the upsides and downsides of each before settling for the best. Contact us for more information.
