Monterey Computer Monitor Recycling and Disposal

Does anyone still have a VCR? Sure, you might have spent years taping your favorite programs but now they’ll all available online. Do you really need to keep stacks of tapes cluttering up your living room? Even if you have some precious memories recorded on video you would be better served having that video transferred to a DVD. Once that is done you really have no excuse to hold onto that VCR. In fact, when it comes to old stereos, copiers, fax machines, computers or televisions you shouldn’t be holding onto those either. All of that stuff is considered e-waste and you should be thinking about how to get rid of it the right way. Here’s a hint: Junk King.

According to the Electronic Waste Recycling Act that became law in 2003, you’re not allowed to throw out any e-waste in the garbage. Sure, you might be able to slip something into a garbage can and think it’s gone for good. However, your garbage men are well within their rights to report the infraction. That could mean a hefty fine. The reason this is so important is that when those types of junk are broken up or crushed, they can release harmful toxins. That’s why they have to be carefully disassembled.

A quick Internet search might reveal an e-waste drop off sponsored by a local charity. More often than not you’ll find that the event has come and gone. Either that or it will be scheduled with a small window of opportunity that turns out not to be much of an opportunity for you and your busy schedule. You choices then become to either hang onto that stuff (which really isn’t much of a choice!) or call Junk King Monterey.
