Minneapolis Computer Monitor & Printer Recycling

This year, New York became the first state to officially band throwing out e-waste in the trash. This could set off a positive ripple effect that will have other starts enacting similar laws. The reason behind this is that e-waste can generate up to 70% of all the toxins found in a landfill. Clearly, keeping those items out of the dump is a smart move for protecting the environment. Here in Minneapolis, there are many active recycling programs including facilities that handle e-waste. The only drawback is that you need to bring your old computer monitor or printer to those centers during their operational hours. That can be a bit of a hassle. A better way to dispose of these kinds of objects would be to turn them over to Junk King.

Junk King Minneapolis is part of a national chain of professional junk haulers who have specialized in e-waste disposal since they began collecting junk back in 2005. In other words, they were way ahead of the recycling curve! It doesn’t take much effort for the Junk King crew assigned to your appointment to load up e-waste. Computers, televisions and other office equipment aren’t that heavy and don’t take up a lot of room on the truck. Whenever Junk King picks up e-waste, they’ll bring it back to the depot and pile it up. When there is enough to fill a truck, then they’ll make the run to the recycling center for a drop off.

The good news is that you won’t be paying any extra for the service. You’ll only ever be charged a flat rate based on volume. That would be the volume of your stuff after it has been packed onto the truck. You’ll know this price before the work begins and you’ll be surprised at how affordable it turns out to be.

You can certainly call up Junk King to handle the disposal of your old computer monitor, printer or laptop but why stop there? Surely, you’ve got more junk to get rid of than just that, right? Junk King will be happy to help you clear out your closets, basement and garage. They’ll even make a sweep through your backyard to remove any “eyesore” items you have out there. Start with computer monitor removal and end with a home that is totally free of clutter. That is the Junk King way.

Take Back Your Weekend with Minneapolis Junk Removal

Between baseball games, concerts and food festivals there is a lot going on during the weekend in Minneapolis. That’s not just this upcoming weekend but also every weekend. Naturally, you don’t have to go out to enjoy your day off. Sometimes just spending the afternoon in a hammock is all you need to recharge your “batteries.” Ideally, this will mean getting all the items on  your “to-do” list taken care off. It’s hard to relax knowing you’ve got chores waiting to be done. If one of those chores is junk removal, then you’re in luck. That’s because a company like Junk King can help with the job and make sure you’ve still got the bulk of your free weekend to enjoy.

When you call to set up a junk removal appointment with Junk King, you’ll be asked two basic questions: “What are you throwing out?” and “When do you want it gone?” Junk King needs to know the size of your junk removal job. That’s not to provide you with a quote, that will come later. Instead, it is to make sure you’ll have enough workers to get the job done. Sometimes, there are cleanup jobs that require an “all hands on deck” approach. This is usually found with foreclosure or hoarder cleanouts. For those jobs, Junk King can provide additional manpower and truck usage.

As for the “When do you want it gone?” question, that is all about working around your schedule. If it works best for the first thing on Saturday morning or late in the afternoon on Friday, then Junk King will make their best effort to accommodate. They know how valuable your time is and they don’t want to get in the way of your weekend!

When the Junk King crew shows up at the appointed hour, they’ll take a quick look at all the stuff you want removed. You don’t have to gather it up in a pile or drag it out to the curb. The crews have been trained to size up all the items. That’s when they’ll give you an estimate based on the amount of space you’re junk might take up on the back of the truck. When you agree to that affordable price, the crew will get busy. Before you know it, your junk removal chore will be done and you’ll have your weekend back all thanks to Junk King.
