Now’s the Perfect Time for Big Recycling Jobs in Middlesex

Recycling Middlesex

 

What is recycling and how does it benefit the environment? I like to start with the basics – In Middlesex, recycling is the process of collecting and processing materials, such as certain plastics and metals, that might wind up in landfills otherwise. 

 

Recycling can significantly reduce the amount of total waste that goes to landfills and incinerators. That’s good news because items like used mattresses can contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and electronics can contain heavy metals like mercury, lead, and cadmium that can do damage to the environment

The trouble with not recycling is that the items will decay in landfills or be burned in incinerators. A mattress takes up 100 cubic feet of space in a landfill and can take many decades to decay in a landfill, where toxins could be sent into the soil, groundwater, and air. 

 

The incinerator route is not much better since burning these disposable products creates toxins, which are likewise sent into the atmosphere. The best option is to recycle these materials because that prevents new manufacturing/mining and keeps harmful materials out of landfills/incinerators.

Create Positive Feedback with Middlesex Recycling 

 

Products that get recycled stay out of landfills and incinerators, where they can pollute the environment, true. But did you know that more new products than ever are being produced by recycled materials? 

 

By recycling more products you’re doing your part to reduce the amount of greenhouse gas emissions out there, as well as the number of microplastics that harm the environment. 

 

Aluminum Cans 

 

Aluminum cans, for instance, are recyclable and can be spun back around into new cans in two months!

 

Aluminum cans can also be turned into new cars you see purring down the street. Car bodies and tractor-trailers can be constructed from recycled aluminum cans. 

 

The beauty of recycling aluminum cans is that they can be recycled indefinitely without compromising the aluminum. This is a lot better than letting the can go to waste and getting crushed in an incinerator somewhere down the line. 

 

The staggering part about recycling aluminum cans is that doing so uses about 1/20th of the energy of producing aluminum cans from scratch, i.e., from the bauxite ore. 

 

Cardboard 

 

Because at Junk King we do complete foreclosure cleanouts and estate cleanouts, we come across a lot of cardboard boxes that can get recycled. Cardboard is typically recycled into a new board.

 

Although that might sound obvious, the process checks a lot of boxes in terms of usefulness and being environmentally conscious. More than 90 percent of products that go through the mail system in North America are housed in cardboard packaging. 

 

It is also reported that over 40 percent of the solid waste stream is composed of cardboard. In other words, you can help save a lot of energy and decrease the volume of solid waste that clogs up landfills by recycling cardboard. 

 

Recycling cardboard is said to be 25 percent more efficient than manufacturing new cardboard, in terms of the energy required to get a usable product from each process. 

 

Paper 

 

Junk King also handles garbage collection and dumpster rentals for homeowners and business owners (B2B). At Junk King we take all of the items found below as far as junk removal: 

 

  • Boxes
  • Knick-knacks
  • Books
  • Tools
  • Tires
  • Rubbish
  • Paper
  • Cardboard
  • Tires  
  • Floorboards
  • Plasterboard
  • Frames
  • Windows
  • Shingles
  • Corrugated Iron

 

Junk King is North America’s ‘greenest’ junk removal company, and Junk King Middlesex is committed to recycling as many of the items above as possible.

 

Paper, like cardboard, is one of those nearly ‘all-purpose’ recyclables because it can be turned into so many different products upon getting processed. 

 

Today’s recycled paper can be turned into needed items like tomorrow’s newspapers and telephone books. Recovered cardboard and paper can also be turned into tomorrow’s egg cartons and computer paper used for printing documents. 

 

Learn more about our dumpster rental services.

 

Paper can also get turned into tissues, magazines, napkins, road surfaces, and loft insulation. Amazingly, the paper you might otherwise throw out can be recycled into so many new products. 

 

The recycling experts say that recycling a ton of paper is the energy equivalent of being able to power a home for 6 months!

 

That’s incredible – even more so when you consider that recycling paper benefits the environment twice over. Leaving more trees out there in nature leads to more carbon capture and less carbon dioxide in the environment, as well: more ways recycling benefits the planet. 

 

Plastic 

Some of the new uses for plastics are equally eyebrow-raising and surprising. For instance, your plastic milk container could be turned into the playground equipment that youngsters play on tomorrow. 

 

The frisbee getting tossed right next to the playground may also have come from your recycled plastic item. Likewise, with the upholstered chair that is resting on the carpet – both upholstery and carpet can be recycled from plastic products. 

 

Glass 

 

Glass bottles, like aluminum cans, can be recycled and recycled indefinitely without compromising the material. Junk King and Middlesex recycling are great ways to ensure more aluminum and glass get recycled. 

 

Glass can be made into flooring, stones, and tiles. It is reported that approximately 90 percent of recycled glass zips over the container industry, where it is used to make new bottles and jars. 

 

About seven percent of the garbage in the United States is composed of glass. Glass is really important to recycle, like aluminum, because it can be totally and continually recycled. This means that recycled glass won’t lose strength or quality with repeated recycling.

Junk King and Recycling in the US 

 

Junk King in the United States is said to be a $200-billion industry. The recycling industry also provides the economy with many more jobs than the landfill industry, and the former (recycling) is also a lot more eco-friendly. 

 

Recycling the items mentioned above is often many times more efficient in terms of energy conservation than, for instance, mining for new raw materials and manufacturing new products from scratch.

Andover Yard Clean Up: Finally Get Rid of That Old Swing Set

Yard Clean Up Swing Set

 

Questions come in all the time about whether yard waste can be thrown into the municipal trash in Andover. The short answer to whether yard waste can be put into regular trash is “no, not really”, and that answer will be unpacked below.

 

For larger yard waste, such as removing old swing sets, Junk King is an excellent resource. We are a truly full-service junk removal company that handles everything from heavy lifting to transportation and recycling/repurposing through local vendors and charities. 

 

Yard Waste in Andover

 

The town of Andover has pretty strict standards when it comes to accepting yard waste. The following items are acceptable for regular trash, according to the town of Andover’s website

 

  • leaves
  • grass clippings
  • dead flowers or plants
  • wood chips
  • hedge clippings
  • pine needles
  • brush 1 inch or less in diameter

 

For the town to pick up your yard waste via curbside pickup, you need to place the approved items above in a biodegradable paper bag and follow a few other rules.

 

For instance, if you toss any brush, then it cannot be protruding from the top of garbage barrels; what’s more, everything must be tied in bundles, according to the town of Andover’s website. 

 

(Yard waste in plastic trash bags will not be taken via curbside pickup.) 

 

Given these restrictions, you still have a few options when it comes to yard waste. You could compost certain items, which will be discussed at the end of this article, or you could always rely on Junk King Middlesex to do all the heavy lifting. 

 

At Junk King Middlesex, we take a huge variety of yard waste and can even handle larger items you may have in your yard like old swing sets, hot tubs, or patio furniture and do it around your schedule. Here’s a list of examples of the items that Junk King accepts: 

 

  • Branches
  • Clippings
  • Stumps
  • Soil
  • Sod
  • Landscaping Debris 
  • Fencing
  • Firewood
  • Lumber
  • Old Timber
  • Plasterboard
  • Frames
  • Windows
  • Shingles
  • Corrugated Iron
  • and much more!

 

Junk King can take all of the items above plus handle the removal of hot tubs, above ground pools, outdoor furniture, and swing sets or playgrounds. For these kind of items, you are probably better off using Junk King Middlesex over another local service because these items are heavy and contain recyclable metals.

Get Rid Of That Old Swing Set and Other Large Backyard Structures in Andover 

 

Customers are also pleasantly surprised to find out that Junk King Middlesex handles small demolitions. Therefore Junk King can tear down sheds, hot tubs, swing sets, and treehouses, hauling away the debris afterward.

 

Virtually the only caveat is that the treehouse, etc. can’t be attached to the main building structure. (Junk King accepts almost every kind of residential and commercial junk, except for hazardous waste, e.g., gasoline, paint, and motor oil.) We do accept e-waste and construction debris, but the EPA rules on hazardous waste can be, at times, confusing. 

 

But if you’re reading this, then you’re probably already thinking about removing your old shed, treehouse, or swing set outback. These might have been eye-catching at the time they were constructed or put in place, but now they’ve become more of an eyesore that you’re hoping to get rid of ASAP. That’s where Junk King Middlesex can come in. 

 

A swing set can also be fun and games while it remains in perfect working order, yet can quickly become a nightmare if it falls into a state of disrepair. Rusty nails coming out at odd angles and wood that is splintered or moldy might only be the beginning of the health hazards posed by old swing sets and treehouses.

  • Wooden, Plastic, and Metal Swing Sets 

 

Many wooden swing sets are made from cedar, redwood, or pine. These can look fantastic at first but quickly decay without routine upkeep or simply succumb over time to the hard Massachusetts winters. Junk King can break down your wooden swing sets and – because we take yard waste like lumber, firewood, and fencing – find the right re/use for it down the line. 

 

Vinyl swing sets are said to utilize a pinewood wrapped in PVC which has been pressure-treated. The walls of a playset outback might well also be made from PVC, a plastic known as polyvinyl chloride. Certain kinds of PVC (e.g., PVC-U) can be fully recycled up to about a dozen times without degrading the material. That’s great for the environment and saves a lot of energy! 

 

In terms of swing sets Massachusetts removal, some swings have seats that can pose issues. The seats from your swing sets might be made of plastic, wood, canvas, or even rubberized plastic material. We can handle all aspects of your swing sets Massachusetts removal. Junk King is a full-service junk removal company – in fact, the ‘greenest’ junk removal in North America! 

 

Organic Yard Waste, Inorganic Yard Waste, and Composting 

 

Yard Clean Up

 

Organic yard waste is yard waste that can be composted. The process of composting is simply putting certain materials back into the soil to further fertilize your soil or garden. Compostable yard waste includes grass clippings, brush, and leaves. These can go right back into nature or be picked up by Junk King as part of yard waste removal

 

Composting is said to have many benefits, including: 

 

  • Enrich the soil 
  • Reduce the need for chemical fertilizers 
  • Retain moisture 
  • Deter pests, weeds, and plant diseases 
  • Promote healthy bacteria and fungi 

 

Junk King takes both organic yard waste and inorganic yard waste. Examples of inorganic yard waste can be found on the list above in this article. Examples of inorganic yard waste include fencing, plasterboard, frames, windows, shingles, and corrugated iron. Inorganic yard waste can also include swing sets Massachusetts removal, lawnmower removal, and shed removal. 

 

At Junk King, we have a 9.8/10 rating from over 70,000 customers across North America because we handle jobs with professionalism, efficiency, and courtesy. Junk King can actually demolish your shed and remove the remains as well as easily take down and remove old swing sets, playsets, and treehouses.

Estate and Foreclosure Cleanouts in Middlesex? No Problem!

Clean out

 

Handling big cleanouts can be intimidating if you go it alone. Rooms full of clutter or a warehouse chock full of debris is not necessarily a pleasant sight, true. At Junk King Middlesex, though, we make large cleanouts as easy as possible by coming with as many trucks as needed to get the job done. That’s what being a comprehensive junk removal service franchise is all about. 

 

Junk King Middlesex helps homeowners, renters, and landlords from all corners of Middlesex County get a space clean and ready for use. Everybody’s needs are different, which is why Junk King offers a variety of different services. Since Junk King is a full-service junk removal company, we’ll do all the heavy lifting and haul away even the largest appliances in an eco-friendly way. 

 

Estate Cleanouts at Junk King 

 

Several different circumstances can result in needing to clean out your entire house. Although some of these circumstances can be difficult, Junk King is here to offer help. An estate cleanout is when you need most of the items inside a home removed as quickly as possible. 

 

Reasons for an estate cleanout can include: 

 

  • -An upcoming move 
  • -Downsizing/lifestyle change 
  • -Extensive renovations 
  • -A loved one passing on 
  • -Overwhelming debt 
  • -Divorce settlement 

 

With an estate cleanout, customers typically want everything removed from the home, including heavy appliances and furniture. While Junk King takes all of these items – Junk King will take virtually any residential and commercial junk except for hazardous waste! – you might want to take a few steps before an estate cleanout. 

 

Checking boxes, shelves, drawers, and pockets of clothing for anything that you might want to retain is a sensible first step. There are, also, some important documents that you’ll probably want to hang on to before an estate cleanout, including: 

 

  • -Burial certificates 
  • -Insurance policies
  • -Real estate deeds and titles
  • -Bank statements
  • -Stock certificates
  • -401(k) records
  • -Tax returns and receipts

 

You might want to make a quick check to see if any of these items are stored digitally on the hard drives of computers or tablets on the estate. These files can likely be saved on an external hard drive if you’re thinking about wiping the hard drive on these devices after getting the files you need. Remember that Junk King accepts electronic waste (e-waste), so you’re covered there. 

 

Aside from checking for these kinds of files – the physical copies and possible digital versions – it might be a good idea to check drawers and dressers for valuables before an estate cleanout. Memorabilia and mementos might also want to be retained before an estate cleanout.

 

Although estate cleanouts are difficult, Junk King’s comprehensive junk removal service is here to help make the process easier and less stressful for you and your family.

Foreclosure and Eviction Cleanouts 

 

Business owners, property managers, and landlords also face the challenge of getting junk cleared from a space as quickly as possible. Oftentimes, an eviction can mean a lot of left-behind furniture, old appliances, and trash strewn everywhere. Discarded appliances could also be part of the picture. 

 

Reliable Service, Insured Workers, and Payment Plans 

 

Fortunately, Junk King provides a host of B2B commercial junk removal services to get your business up and running at maximum efficiency. Every employee here at Junk King is fully insured for complete peace of mind. Junk King even offers payment plans and business accounts for easier payments, in addition to reliable service within narrow service windows.  

 

Quickly Clear Space for Landlords 

 

Landlords face similar problems to property managers and storage facility managers who need the space cleared to rent to the next client. Although there might be a lot of work ahead in terms of routine maintenance, painting, cleaning, and repairs, the more short-term problem is getting the old tenants’ junk out of there. Unwanted items and junk left behind by old tenants or customers can be priority number one. 

 

About a third of people rent, according to the Census Bureau, and businesses are constantly looking for more attractive space. That means that there’s a lot of turnover, consolidations, and reasons to remove junk. A full-service junk removal company like Junk King is a great option because we have the resources to maneuver heavy items like dressers, filing cabinets, and appliances downstairs.

 

Storage Facility Managers Rely on Junk King 

 

Junk King Middlesex also helps local storage facility managers get the junk out of existing space to shore up room for new tenants. Storage facility managers face many of the same problems as property managers and landlords, namely, getting the space ready for rental after an old tenant or renter has left. The self-storage industry in the US is nothing to scoff at since it represents about 60,000 storage facilities and $40 billion in annual revenue. 

 

Eco-friendly Service 

 

Because Junk King is the ‘greenest’ junk removal company in North America, you can also feel good about what you’re doing. The Environmental Protection Agency found that only about 22 percent of junk gets recycled, but Junk King is here to dramatically boost that number. Foreclosure and eviction cleanouts create a lot of waste and more opportunities for eco-friendly disposal and recycling!
