Waste Disposal Awareness During Covid 19

If you never thought about it before then now is certainly the time to consider healthy waste disposal practices. Now that we’re facing a very profound pandemic such as Covid-19 there is a definite need to dispose of waste, especially personal waste with caution. Utmost care must be taken when handling waste in the various health institutions, shelters and residential homes.

WHY IS IT NECESSARY ESPECIALLY DURING COVID-19?

Essential Service providers such as Junk King are tasked with the responsibility of providing efficient and effective waste management services especially at this time. We at Junk king Marin are heavily committed to ensuring that the people of Marin and Sonoma are protected from the spread of Covid-19 through our best practices.

Fast action and an effective response are keys to our fight against the deadly disease.

WHAT ARE THE ESSENTIAL PRODUCTS AND HOW TO DISPOSE THEM?

Some of the essential items we take include gloves, medical gowns, surgical alcohol, hand sanitizers, face masks and infected clothing.  We have seen an increase in the disposal of ventilators, corona lab screening test kits and Covid-19 confirmation home test kits.

We take special care when disposing of contaminated items and surfaces. Droplets from infected patients can survive for several days which makes it imperative to properly handle and dispose. All bags containing waste should be tied and safely put out for pickup. As a leading response provider it is our duty to safeguard and encourage a speedy recovery process by adhering to strict Covid- 19 policies and guidelines.

WHAT TO DO IF YOU HAVE COVID 19?

The fact remains that there is no medical cure or vaccine that prevents or treats the Corona virus. Medical practitioners are baffled at how the disease has taken so many lives at such a rapid pace. To play your part in preventing the spread of Covid-19, here’s what to do:

  1. Cover all coughs and sneezes.
  2. Common symptoms include a cough accompanied by a fever and sometimes wheezing, self isolate and call for medical attention.
  3. Properly dispose of all tissues and hand towels containing bodily fluids
  4. Hand sanitize every 20 secs ( 70% alcohol)
  5. Avoid sharing personal items
  6. Clean all surfaces 3 times daily inside the home

The impact of Covid-19 has made it necessary to educate on how we can work together to combat this global epidemic. By following these simple steps you help to stem the growth of the number of infected people in the US. Show respect to the person standing next to you by practicing proper hygiene and waste disposal. Whether it’s by wearing  a mask in public or by simply using tissue to cover your nose when you sneeze.

When you partner with us you get the benefits of having a professional and affordable waste disposal provider. We at Junk King are happy to implement waste management strategies that will protect our front line workers and anyone who is exposed to this threat at this time. Now remember hand sanitize and stay healthy! Contact us for more information.

The Management of Toxic Waste Disposal

Improperly managed toxic waste poses serious risk to human health and the environment. Simply defined, toxic waste is any substance containing dangerous properties with harmful effects. It can be generated in many forms; from sludge to solid gases and liquids. These can cause damage during inadequate toxic waste disposal, treatment, and transportation.

Toxic Waste Characteristics

Toxic waste is classified in terms of chemical, physical, and biological properties. These materials may generate corrosive, radioactive, reactive, and infectious properties. Even in their smallest amounts, these substances are poisonous. They can have acute or chronic effects, which can slowly cause death or severe illnesses.

Those with carcinogenic effects, for instance, can lead to cancer long after the exposure has taken place over a period. Mutagenic materials can introduce severe biological changes in the offsprings of people exposed to the chemicals.

The reactive, toxic substances can explode while the ignitable ones can burn at the lowest temperatures. Infectious substances can also cause harm, and these include needles and other elements from medical and research facilities. Radioactive materials such as lead and mercury, on the other hand, release ionizing energy, which can be harmful.

Because it persists for close to several thousand years before completely decaying, there is a need to control these wastes properly. Every employee who handles toxic materials must be properly trained and provided with the right protective gear.

Toxic Waste Transportation

Toxic waste disposal requires transportation from a disposal facility to storage for approved treatment. Transportation must be given special attention due to the possible threats the waste can cause to the environment. Toxic waste tends to have accidental spills, while some transporters also abandon it intentionally. Dumping untreated toxic waste into landfills is a violation of the law, which could lead to hefty penalties or jail time. To avoid these, it is advisable to work with a designated toxic waste service provider.

Disposal of hazardous waste involves discharging depositing, injection, dumping, leaking, spilling, and placement into a water body or land to allow it to get into the air. There is a portion of the waste that is not completely eliminated. This one has to undergo a technique that changes its chemical and biological characteristics. The process is done to neutralize the toxicity and render it nonhazardous and safe to manage.

The management of hazardous waste is a challenging process across the globe. The lack of an effective and efficient management program can lead to significant health implications and impact the environment negatively. Recycling of toxic waste presents many benefits such as the reduction of waste materials that need to be treated and disposed and reduced consumption of raw materials. When not appropriately stored, spillage, leakage, and contamination of water and soil may occur. It is thus essential that recycling is left to professionals for proper handling.

Because these manage large volumes of waste and are faced with more considerable risks, professional disposal bodies must be regulated. There are specific provisions that govern them and must follow certain standards to operate as hazardous waste management units. Once you realize that you are dealing with toxic substances, it is crucial that you deal with a certified toxic waste management company for transportation and disposal.

Hoarder Help: Junk Removal Tips

Hoarding has become a popular topic for the media in the last few decades, but it remains a serious issue that negatively affects many families and individuals. At Junk King Marin, we’re sympathetic to this situation and offer hoarder help services. While we aren’t equipped to help people with the emotional aspect of hoarding, we’re ready to make the physical aspect of minimizing clutter a lot easier. We’re committed to reducing stress for our customers during this already difficult situation.

Boxes overflowing with clothing, shoes and laundry basketsIf you’re dealing with a hoarding issue yourself or helping a family member or friend with their house, figuring out where to begin can be overwhelming. That’s why we created a short step-by-step guide that will make your project easier.

Step 1: Set Some Guidelines

Before going through each item one by one, it’s a good idea to set some rules about what stays and what goes. For example, some people decide to get rid of everything they haven’t used for a year or more except for photos and other important mementos. Since the type of clutter in your home may be very unique,  you’ll need to create guidelines that make sense for your situation. With rules in place, going through the hoard of clutter in a home will be much easier and faster.

Step 2: Keep or Don’t Keep

Now it’s time to start sifting through each pile and deciding what to keep item by item. We recommend sticking to one room at a time so that everything feels more manageable. Pick an area in or outside the house, such as the garage, to temporarily store all of the belongings you’re not keeping. People providing hoarder help should be considerate of the owner’s feelings regarding certain items, but they should also provide a bit of friendly pressure.

Step 3: Donate, Sell or Throw Away

Once you’ve segregated the items that you’re not keeping, you’ll need to decide what to do with them. Useful belongings, including working electronics, quality clothes, and collectibles, could be sold in a garage sale or donated to local organizations. This is a great way to make some money while solving your hoarder issue. Items that aren’t able to be sold or donated can be set aside so that our junk removal professionals can take them.

Step 4: Professional Junk Removal

Before or after you sell or donate your useful belongings, Junk King can take care of the things that need to be thrown away or recycled. All you have to do is schedule an appointment and our friendly crew will visit your home and take away anything you ask them to, including appliances, furniture, electronics, old equipment, and even possibly hazardous materials. We can pick up junk from a single location or from multiple rooms and areas of your home. We’ll dispose of your junk in a safe and environmentally responsible manner.

Toxic Waste Disposal: How Marin County’s Zero Waste Policy Works

Did you know that the U.S. produces over 1.5 million tons of household hazardous waste per year? It’s true. The typical residential home easily contains up to 100 pounds in the garage, storage shed, and/or basement. If not properly disposed of, toxic waste can create serious potential risks to people and the environment. Junk King of Marin’s professional, fast, and green removal services can help with all your toxic waste disposal needs in a safe and secure way.

What is Toxic Waste?

Toxic Waste DisposalThere are five kinds of waste covered by Marin County policy: solid, liquid, organic, recyclable, and hazardous or toxic waste.

Toxic waste includes inflammables, corrosives, reactives, and other materials that easily catch fire, explode, erode metal, or poison humans and animals. Common household items that meet the toxic threshold include cleaners, asbestos, batteries, automotive fluids, stains and varnishes, certain paints, pesticides and herbicides, and many other items, including old propane tanks and fire extinguishers.

Each type of toxic waste has its own disposal method under Marin County regulations.

Toxic Waste Disposal Practices

In California, it is illegal to dispose of household hazardous waste by throwing it in the trash, flushing it down the drain, or by abandoning it. Marin County has a Zero Waste program that promotes the safe collection and disposal of household toxic waste so residents are in compliance with California state law. The County provides a “What We Accept” and “Not Accepted” list on its website.

Zero Waste Marin focuses on helping residents and businesses meet the county’s zero waste goal by 2025 with, among other things, safe toxic waste disposal. The program is made up of the city and town managers of the communities that make up the county, as well as the county itself.

E Waste Disposal – Our Growing Problem and How We’re Helping to Solve It

How many abandoned electronic devices does your family have laying around? As new gadgets go obsolete on what seems like a daily basis and people don’t give a second thought to buying the latest and greatest technology, the country is facing a big and growing e waste problem. And with it comes an e waste disposal challenge.

E Waste Disposal Nearly a decade ago, the United Nations reported that in some countries, production of e waste would rise by as much as 500% over the next 10 years. Unfortunately, that prediction was accurate, with 20-50,000,000 metric tons of e waste disposed of worldwide every year. The statistics and trends on e waste are startling:

  • The average mobile phone user buys or leases a new cell phone every 18 months.
  • In the US, consumers toss over 100 million mobile devices in the trash every year.
  • According to the EPA, well over 100,000 computers are discarded every day in the U.S. alone. That’s a staggering 40 million+ laptops and desktop computers each year!

Sadly, less than 15% of e waste is disposed of and recycled properly. Junk King of Marin is committed to improving that statistic.

The Problem with Improper e Waste Disposal

Most people know they shouldn’t just throw e waste into the garbage. But many don’t know what items are considered e waste and how they should be handled. Yet when e waste is not recycled properly, it often ends up in landfills either here at home or in developing countries, where it can cause serious harm.

So, what exactly is e waste? The term covers any and all discarded electronics that, when improperly disposed of, can potentially harm the ecosystem. That’s because many electronics contain heavy metals like lead, mercury, lithium, and other hazardous materials that pollute the air we breathe and the water we drink. In addition to electronics, items such as fluorescent bulbs and tubes, pesticides, paints, old medications, cleaning products, and other chemicals are forbidden to be put in your regular trash or poured down a drain or gutter because of the contaminants they contain.

Letting the Pros Handle Your e Waste Disposal

Proper e waste disposal and recycling is vital for your and the planet’s health. That means everyone needs to be vigilant about where they recycle and dispose of their old and discarded electronics.

Figuring out where to recycle those old electronics, especially because many e waste recyclers limit what they accept, is a struggle for many in the Bay area. And, unfortunately, many so called e waste recyclers don’t recycle and handle e waste disposal in a proper and sustainable way.

Junk King of Marin has extensive experience in proper e waste disposal practices. From computers to cell phones and televisions, we handle all your e waste needs whether it be through recycling, repurposing, or proper disposal. The superior service that our skilled and friendly teams bring to the job ensures a quick and efficient removal of all your e waste.

If you reside in Marin County and are looking for a socially responsible e waste disposal company, Junk King of Marin is the solution you’ve been looking for. Give us a call, text us a photo, or book an appointment online today and let us help you properly dispose of all your abandoned electronics.

Clearing Up the Confusion Around Household Hazardous Waste

Household hazardous waste is one of the most confusing parts of responsible waste removal for most people. You know all about recycling (plastics, paper, metals, and glass) and having your mattress hauled away and perhaps donated, but what do you do with that left over motor oil or that paint can collecting dust in the basement? That’s a big question mark for a lot of people. But, first off, what is household hazardous waste? The truth is that the sheer breadth of consumer products that qualify make it hard to pin down what household hazardous waste even is.

Nailing Down the Definition of Household Hazardous Waste

Household Hazardous Waste The Environmental Protection Agency offers the following definition for folks: household hazardous waste (HHW) is any leftover household product that can ignite, react, or explode or that can corrode and cause toxicity issues if improperly disposed of. As you can probably already tell based on that definition, this could include the likely suspects like paint and household cleaners but it can also encompass outdoor pest control (e.g., certain pesticides) and automotive care products (e.g., gasoline, fluid, or oil). One of the most common types of household hazardous waste is batteries.

Universal Waste

The Environmental Protection Agency considers batteries universal waste (a subcategory of household hazardous waste) because they’re still dangerous to dispose of improperly in terms of soil contamination (even with removing all that mercury) but they’re also extremely common and used to power millions of electronic devices. Four types of universal waste could be considered household hazardous waste by the EPA: batteries, outdoor pesticides, lamps, and other mercury-containing equipment like fluorescent light bulbs. The bottom line is that a lot of the stuff on your garage shelf could probably be considered household hazardous waste. Oil-based paints, drain cleaners, antifreeze, and rodenticides might all require special treatment.
New Call-to-action

Responsibly Dispose of Household Hazardous Waste in California

So, now that you’re looking through your garage or cupboard of cleaning supplies and wondering what to do with it all, how do you dispose of this stuff? Once you’re sure that you’re actually dealing with household hazardous waste and not a recyclable or reusable item, the next steps would be to use up what you have and/or use a household hazardous waste collection service in your area. The interesting part about all of this is that the Environmental Protection Agency doesn’t actually regulate HHW. Household hazardous waste collection programs are usually funded at the state level. The California Department of Toxic Substance Control takes household hazardous waste extremely seriously and says that in California it is against the law to dispose of household hazardous waste by pouring it down the drain or popping it in the trash and simply treating it as solid waste. Surprisingly, even abandoning or dumping your HHW like certain electronic waste is considered a crime. If improperly disposed of, HHW can harm the ecosystem (animals, plants, water, and soil) as well as human health. The state of California has put together this extensive list of household hazardous waste that includes electronic waste like old computer monitors (e.g., cathode ray tube monitors) and cell phones that Junk King can haul away. Pool cleaners, oven cleaners, and glues and adhesives are some surprising items that made the list. Once you know that you have hazardous waste on your hands (hopefully not literally!), take it to a nearby household hazardous waste collection facility for safe processing (solvents can sometimes be incinerated and used as energy) and/or disposal. Junk King is here to help. Contact Junk King for clean out services, e-waste removal, or donating gently used items.

What To Do For Safe Refrigerator Disposal

“The truly safe environment is not merely safe but Stimulating.” – William H. Stuart

Have you ever tried moving a refrigerator on your own? Well, if you have then you know that it’s like trying to move a thousand pound boulder across the room. Obviously, it’s not a job for one person and depending on the size of the refrigerator you may need a small team to manage refrigerator disposal properly.

Apart from this, if your refrigerator is old and no longer being used having it lying around can be a problem. You see, even if you manage to take it to the curb, most trash collection services, don’t remove large, bulky waste items and leave them there. So, what do you do?

Refrigerator disposal services are your best option.

Refrigerator Disposal Easy, straightforward and eco-friendly, refrigerator disposal services allow you to get rid of your old refrigerator without having to deal with the hassle of moving or disposing of it.

First, you hire a reputable refrigerator removal company, that offers complete refrigerator disposal services to help you manage this. Here’s what to do.

1. Simply schedule your refrigerator removal appointment by calling 1-888-888-JUNK or you can also book online at www.junk-king.com and save $30.

2. Our friendly, insured, refrigerator disposal team, will come to your home and call 15 minutes before we arrive.

3. Our professional hauling team will haul old fridge away with NO Hidden Fees.

4. If possible, we recycle your refrigerator.

Why Proper Refrigerator Disposal Is So Important

Now, just because trash services won’t collect your old refrigerator you shouldn’t just dump it anywhere.

You don’t want to be caught dumping waste illegally and be fined or prosecuted or worst, be responsible for causing harm to the environment; so when the time comes to get rid of your old fridge it’s best to hire a refrigerator disposal company to take care of everything for you.

The consequences of improper refrigerator disposal can be pretty severe as you can put both human and environmental health at risk. For instance, numerous ozone-depleting refrigerants and/or foam blowing agents can be found in older model refrigerators/freezers depending on the year they were manufactured. This, along with the many materials and substances found in refrigerators that are comprised of hazardous compounds like carbon, fluorine, chlorine, and hydrogen, are extremely dangerous if exposed.

So, based on these troubling effects, people are urged to handle refrigerator disposal the responsible way and work with a service provider who can not only remove and dispose of your old fridge safely, but make sure that it is done in an environmentally friendly manner.

Instead Of  Refrigerator Disposal Can I Recycle My Unwanted Fridge?

Of course, you can! Furthermore, once in relatively good condition, it’s encouraged. You see, refrigerator disposal may not be required for all old fridges since they are perfect for recycling.

Basically, once collected, old refrigerators are dismantled into smaller parts and pieces which are sorted for recycling or reused for other purposes. Even though you should consider recycling your old refrigerator if possible, not all refrigerator disposal companies offer to recycle as part of their services. So to be sure your old fridge is disposed of responsibly contact us here at Junk King, we’ll take care of everything for you.

Eco-Friendly Refrigerator Disposal Matters To Us!

When you call Junk King to handle your refrigerator disposal, you can feel at ease knowing that we pride ourselves in promoting eco-friendly practices and offer recycling services.

Once you call us, we will come in and remove your old fridge without any hassle to you. In addition to this, here at Junk King transport and processing also come as part of the service without any extra fees.

Contact us at today at 1-888-888-JUNK  to book an appointment right away or you can visit our website at www.junk-king.com to learn more.

Improper Waste Disposal has Dangerous Effects

Waste DisposalRecent studies conducted reveal that out of the millions of tonnes of waste generated throughout the United States annually a large percentage is improperly disposed. Unfortunately this practice has been identified as one of the main causes of pollution and is becoming a growing concern for both government and environmentalist as it poses serious threats to health and the environment. So to manage this authorities have implemented strict waste management regulations and heavy penalties to violators in order to enforce and promote safe waste disposal practices throughout the country.

Improper Waste Disposal is a Deadly Practice

Soil, water and air pollution can all be a result of improper waste disposal and occurs when either of them becomes contaminated with hazardous materials. Not only does this contribute to the creation of a greenhouse gas effects but also causes significant harm to marine and wildlife.

Apart from this improper waste disposal can also have adverse health effects on humans as over the years it has been responsible for causing several diseases and in some cases even death.

For instance when water is contaminated with foreign substances, like harmful pathogens, toxic chemicals or medical waste its chemical composition changes making it harmful to use. Diseases like Cholera, Dysentery and leptospirosis are known to be spread through contaminated water and can cause serious health epidemics in a population.

Another example of the dangerous effects of improper waste disposal is soil contamination which occurs when hazardous chemicals come into contact with the soil. These chemicals are absorbed by plants which are later utilized by other other organisms including humans which as a result can cause disease or even death. Improper waste disposal can also interfere with the food supply as plant growth is impaired reducing the amount of food produced .

Help To Curb Improper Waste Disposal

With the amount of waste generated annually steadily increasing it is becoming more and more challenging for government to monitor and manage waste disposal throughout the country. Therefore it is the responsibility of citizens to not only carry out safe, eco friendly, waste disposal practices but to encourage others around them to do the same. Energy conservation and recycling are also great ways to eliminate improper waste disposal and keep the environment safe.

So given all the negative effects highlighted due to improper waste disposal persons should be particularly careful to promote and exercise all the necessary practices to ensure they do the right thing and if by chance you do find yourself with certain types of waste that can’t be discarded with your regular trash you can contact a waste removal service to come in and remove it for you.

Impactful Waste Disposal – Protect the Planet and Your Children’s Future

You are standing on a planet that is in peril — and this isn’t just something you’ll read about on the news, as environmental waste and pollution can end up hurting your family. The good news is, you can do a lot to protect both the entire world and your family by promoting an impactful waste disposal strategy.

How’s Your Water?

Many people don’t make the association between what they throw away and the groundwater, but it’s a powerful one. When someone throws away a piece of electronic equipment, tiny amounts of lead, mercury and other toxins can leech out of that equipment into the ground. Ordinary rain is one of the world’s most powerful agents of breaking down anything, and what comes out may end up making your water toxic. Regular landfills are set up to handle regular trash, but electronics and certain other items need special handling.

It’s Not Just the World — It’s Your Family

It can be tempting to not see the connection between what you do on a daily basis to help the world and how this impacts your family, but the connection is very real. Your children need to drink and bathe in the water that can get better or worse. Your children need to breathe the air that can be clean or polluted. The land will one day provide them with food, and healthy land produces far healthier food. In the same vein, they will one day have children that will also need to inherit the highest quality earth you can provide them with. Isn’t that the most powerful motivation you can think of?

Everyday Hazards You May Not Realize

Many ordinary household items can become dangerous if they aren’t handled properly during their disposal. Partial recycling and chemical treatment are essential to limiting the potentially toxic damage that these items can cause if they aren’t handled properly. Even common household products like shampoo and the food you throw away can become dangerous under the right conditions due to chemical interactions they can have. Beyond that, even more “obvious” dangers like air conditioning units or fridges filled with Freon are too often little more than left outside to leech out their worst parts. Without proper waste handling, this can quickly become a big deal.

Every Piece Counts

You know the world is massive, and often it seems like an ordinary person can’t do very much to change anything. While there are some exceptional people out there, most folks just aren’t making global changes — or so it seems. Every time a piece of toxic trash passes through your hands into a landfill or another less-responsible dumping location, it does make a difference. Further, it’s a difference that your family will eventually recognize as a problem. While you may not feel like you’re making a difference when you use a professional junk removal service, the environment will notice. The rewards you get out of the deal are both a good feeling and the knowledge that you’re protecting the ecosystem everyone needs to survive.

Start Today, Save Tomorrow

It’s tempting in this world to think that what you do today doesn’t make much of a difference, but it most definitely does. Using a quality waste removal company can be the difference between being a superhero versus being that nameless person at the start of a horror movie who never sees it coming. You want to ensure the future for your children, their children and for many generations yet to come, and you can start today by making sure every piece of junk that could hurt the ecosystem is properly hauled away in an environmentally-friendly fashion. Contact us the experts and let us help you make the world a much healthier place to live.
