How Junk King Works with Northern Kentucky Recycling Centers to Keep Items Out of Landfills

It’s estimated that every person in the U.S. adds 4.4 pounds of garbage to the landfill every single day. That might seem like a fairly small amount, but it quickly adds up. Residents generate around 730,000 tons of trash daily—and that doesn’t include what commercial businesses and manufacturers add to the landfills. Even if that garbage is compacted down, it still takes up a good amount of space.

Most junk hauling services only add to the amount of trash hitting the landfill. Junk King, however, strives to reduce our impact as much as possible. We recognize that the nature of our industry involves taking junk to the dump, but we also understand that there are alternatives for some of the trash we collect. Our goal is to keep whatever we can out of the landfill, whether it’s by recycling or by donating gently used items to local charities.

How Our Recycling Works

When you choose Junk King for your junk removal needs, you automatically receive our recycling services, too. That’s because our recycling plan is built into our junk collection services.

Our junk hauling process is very simple. Just call, text, or make a reservation online. You provide information about the junk you need hauled away, and we will give you an estimate. Once you approve the estimate, we send out our team to haul away the junk. We will collect everything and take it to the truck. You don’t even have to move old appliances or furniture out of the house. Our team will take care of everything.

Once we have picked up your junk, we will sort it at our facility. Here, we sort out anything that we believe can be donated or recycled. Sometimes, this is a lot. Sometimes, it’s not. Either way, we sort everything we pick up. We then take the recyclable materials to one of our partner recycling centers in Northern Kentucky. They handle the actual recycling. For items we donate, we reach out to our partners to see what is needed.

We do the same for our customers who use our dumpster rental services. We sort through everything in the dumpster before taking it to the landfill. Anything that can be donated or recycled is pulled out and taken to the correct business.

What We Recycle

There are many materials that can be recycled. We work closely with local recycling centers to make certain we are removing the correct items. Anything you can put out in your household recycling bins can be taken to one of our partner facilities. This includes paper, newspapers, magazines, junk mail, glass bottles, plastic bottles, aluminum, cardboard, and other, similar products. We do have a full list of what is not accepted, and we will remove anything that we know recycling centers will not accept.

Some furniture can also be recycled, although it is often more difficult. Some furniture is made out of materials that have been treated with different varnishes or sealants that make it difficult to recycle them. Wood, for example, often cannot be removed from furniture and recycled because of this. Materials like chipboard and particleboard are also not recyclable.

The padding used in cushions may be recycled if it’s made from polyurethane foam. Any plastic or fabric used in furniture can also typically be recycled. Almost all the metal used can be taken to a scrap metal facility. Some mattresses can be broken down and recycled, too, although not all of them can be.


Junk King Donates Items to Those in Need

Before we send something to a recycling center, we do take a look at the condition it is in. If you have furniture that is still in good shape, we will take it to a charity or other organization before recycling or dumping it. This way, the furniture continues to be of use and it helps someone who is in need. The charities we work with include organizations that help those who cannot afford furniture get the items they need, shelters for the homeless, and other groups that need gently used furniture.

Again, you don’t have to do anything other than call Junk King to pick up items. We will determine what can be donated or recycled. If you do know that a piece of furniture is in really good condition, feel free to let us know that it can probably be donated. We appreciate any help our clients give us!

Offices and other businesses can also let us know when they have a lot of furniture to donate. Whether you’re downsizing, upgrading your office furniture, or moving to a new location and replacing everything, businesses often have a lot of stuff to get rid of. Some of it may be in great condition, and we will certainly help pass it along to those in need.


Why Recycle?

Why should Junk King or anyone else worry about recycling? There are many reasons why recycling is necessary to sustaining our planet. Earth doesn’t have unlimited space, and we are already dedicating a lot of land to landfills. These landfills are actually a major cause of methane, a harmful gas that damaging the ozone layer. While most landfills do not accept anything that contains hazardous materials, some of these materials do slip in. These toxic materials can sink into the earth and reach the water table, causing additional problems.

Recycling helps prevent this damage. A very large amount of waste can be recycled, reducing what we add to the landfill. Some of these, such as glass bottles, are recycled into new products of the same type. Others, like plastic, may be recycled into clothing, auto parts, and even carpet. This helps conserve wood, water, minerals, and other materials that exist in a finite amount.


How Does Recycling Work?

Recycling is a fairly easy process that contains three main steps. First, the recyclable materials are collected and taken to a recycling center. This is what Junk King does. At these facilities, the materials are further sorted by type and cleaned.

Next, the materials are broken down into raw material that can be used in the manufacturing process. Metal, for example, is melted down and poured into a mold to be cast into a new shape. The final step is that these products are put on the market and used by people. This gives the material used a new life while also reducing the need for new materials to be used.

Some items such as steel can be recycled over and over. These materials can essentially be recycled and reused forever. Other materials may only be able to be recycled once or may have a limit to how often they can be reused. Even so, this still helps reduce our reliance on non-renewable resources.

Using Junk King for All Your Junk Hauling Needs

If you want to work with a junk hauling service you know respects and protects the environment, you want to partner with Junk King. We will help you get your garbage and other unneeded items under control. We make use of larger trucks that can haul away more junk in fewer trips, so we can often get everything in one single trip.

Need to get rid of some junk quickly? When you call for an estimate, we may be able to do it over the phone or via text. However, if you have more than an old sofa or a few old appliances, we may need to come in person to give you an estimate. We will bring the truck and, if you accept the estimate, we can usually haul away everything right then and there. There’s no wait time.


What We Haul Away

As long as it’s not hazardous, we can take it! Junk King can even haul away some items that other companies or city bulk waste disposal won’t touch. Here are some of the items we can haul off for you:

-Furniture, including large sofas and beds
-Televisions and other electronic waste
-Yard waste, including tree limbs
-Hot tubs
-Refrigerators, freezers, and other appliances
-Construction waste

You can also dispose of any of these items in one of our rented dumpsters.

While we are more than happy to come pick up a few items, we are also ready to help those who need to get rid of an entire house’s worth of trash. Landlords often need rental properties and apartments completely cleaned out, and we can help with that. We also assist with foreclosures and with those who have inherited homes that need a good cleaning out.

If you have one of these properties or if you simply need to clean out some junk, give Junk King a call today. Our previous customers have been very pleased with how quickly and efficiently we removed all of their garbage. “Everyone was extremely courteous and helpful with all my questions,” said one client in their review.

If you have questions or want to set up an appointment, you can give us a call at 1-888-888-JUNK or text us photos of the junk you need picked up to 1-737-888-5865. We look forward to hearing from you!
