All of us at Junk King Middlesex are dedicated to being as environmentally conscious as possible. That means overcoming a few of the problems that have plagued furniture recycling for decades.
The Environmental Protection Agency says that every year more than 12 million tons of furniture and other furnishings get thrown out. Of that prodigious amount of furniture that makes its way to landfills, only a tiny percentage gets recycled.
The reason for that is furniture contains different materials that are difficult to recycle or must be recycled, cleaned, and reprocessed through different recycling facilities.
Eco-friendly Furniture Removal Bedford
Some people don’t think that the process is worth the effort. As North America’s greenest junk removal company, we’re different. Furniture removal Bedford takes virtually every kind of residential and commercial furniture piece.
Junk King takes the following furniture:
- – Couches
- – Recliners
- – Sectional sofas
- – Headboards
- – Nightstands
- – Chairs
- – Bunkbeds
- – Futons
- – Mattresses
- – Bookcases
- – Office desks
- – Cabinets
- – Chests
- – Coffee tables
- – Patio furniture
- And much more!
Most of the furniture items mentioned above are recyclable, at least to some degree. The tell-tale sign for whether a piece of furniture is recyclable or not is to look at the materials that it is made of.
Furniture that is made mostly out of one material, or composed of a limited number of simple materials, can typically be recycled. A bookcase made of metal or a bed frame made of wood is both typically highly recyclable.
Furniture made of wood or wicker can be recyclable, but it may have to be sent to a special recycling facility. Metal is usually easy to work with and can be recycled by metal recycling, and metal furniture can be reprocessed and turned into other products down the line.
There are other pieces of furniture – e.g., patio furniture – that contain a lot of glue, particleboard, plastics, and compressed wood that cannot be as readily recycled.
Efficient Commercial Furniture Removal Bedford
Property managers and business owners can be tempted to handle furniture removal on an in-house basis, but the costs can quickly add up. Supposing that you can throw away furniture in the dumpster out back, what happens with going about moving and transporting the furniture on your own?
Going about office furniture removal on your own often means sidelining one of your workers to spend a day or three attempts to get furniture downstairs and into a dumpster. Will the furniture fit in the dumpster? Can you workers handle it? Is this the most efficient way to proceed?
At Junk King, we offer full-service commercial junk removal, including bulky office furniture. Junk King is a top-rated service committed to efficient service; payment plans for business accounts also make service more convenient.
Junk King handles all kinds of commercial junk removal, including commercial furniture removal in Bedford. Junk King can help with commercial equipment removal and commercial scrap pickup in addition to full warehouse cleanouts, property management cleanouts, foreclosure cleanouts, and storage facility cleanouts.
Fair and Transparent Pricing from Junk King
All of the furniture that you need to be removed can still be removed by junk removal Bedford. At Junk King, we make it a priority to only charge customers for the actual space they use in terms of the volume they take up in the big red Junk King trucks.
This is a huge advantage for customers, compared to the pricing structures that competitors might have. For instance, many junk removal companies will charge customers based on the weight of the particular furniture pieces added up together.
That can be a severe disadvantage when it comes to a back-breaking desk or den couch. Junk King does things differently. You will only pay for the interior volume that your furniture takes up in the Junk King truck.
Another advantage that is sometimes overlooked is that Junk King can remove everything you have extremely efficiently. With Junk King, you can book an appointment online, pick a date and time, and have your residential or office furniture removed potentially within a day or two of reaching out to us.
Free, On-site Estimates Includes Everything
At Junk King, we provide free, on-site written estimates. An estimate for furniture removal Bedford will include all labor charges, taxes, and dumping fees. Junk King is a full-service junk removal service. This means that you can expect prompt service from our fully insured, experienced crew tailored to your schedule.
Without Junk King, you might have to incur these costs separately, which could add up without the experience and economies of scale that Junk King leverages for your benefit. Furniture removal Bedford can also be done through Junk King dumpster rentals.
The Many Benefits of Recycling Old Furniture
If you went about junk removal yourself, you would likely have to worry about labor costs, transportation, paying the fee for a landfill, or finding local recycling centers for all of the relevant materials (woods, metals, plastics, and so forth).
Junk King does its best to recycle old furniture and ensure that furniture removal Bedford is done in an environmentally responsible way. Recycling old furniture reduces the need to expend energy or resources on new materials. This reduces the need to, for instance, cut down trees for wood to make new furniture.
The Environmental Protection Agency says that a “significant portion” (about 20 percent) of furniture and furnishings was put towards energy recovery via combustion in 2018. The flip side is that about 80 percent of this product sector was destined for landfills!
Recycling more and keeping materials in circulation reduces carbon emissions and overall pollution that would have resulted from locating and processing these raw materials. Lower levels of deforestation will also translate into environmental benefits since trees help to capture carbon in the atmosphere.
