E-Waste Recycling & Disposal in Pittsburgh

When it comes to recycling there is the easy stuff and the hard stuff. Recently the Pennsylvania Resources Council hosted the “Hard to Recycle” drop-off at the Galleria at Pittsburgh Mills. The things they deemed “hard to recycle” included items such as computers, TVs, cell phones, printer/toner cartridges and CFLs. On some level those items could be considered hard to recycle simply because you’re not allowed to toss those kinds of things out in the garbage. However, there is nothing hard about hiring Junk King Pittsburgh for e-waste recycling. In fact, this is the most hassle free option you could have when it comes to removing all kinds of junk.

Junk King is the professional hauling team who has set up shop here in Pittsburgh just like they have at cities all across the country. Any Junk King business follows a strict set of guidelines and pricing procedures when it comes to efficient, eco-friendly and professional junk removal. Anything less wouldn’t be Junk King. It starts with hiring the right type of workers. The Junk King crews are all full-time workers who are proud to wear the JK uniform! This is their job and it’s a job that is built upon positive word of mouth. They’re not going to stay in business very long if they can’t keep their customers happy.

Start with a call to Junk King Pittsburgh and let them know how much you will be tossing out. This is important because you’re only going to be charged by the amount of space your junk takes up on the Junk King truck. Once you’ve been given an estimate that price is locked and loaded. There won’t be any “surprise charges” that pop up. On the day of the scheduled appointment, the Junk King crew will show up exactly within the window of time they tell you they will. That will all be based around your schedule. In no time, the Junk King will load up what you tell them to and be on your way. That’s way better than you renting a truck, doing all the lifting and then driving around Pittsburgh looking for the proper drop-off destination.

As for what you can throw away with Junk King Pittsburgh, pretty much the sky is the limit. How can you fill up a truck? Whether you’ve got furniture, sports equipment, cribs, play sets, TVs or appliances they can all go in the back of the Junk King truck. As for your e-waste items those will all end up at a certified recycling center where they’ll be broken down to their core components and shipped off for proper smelting. There really is only one way to get rid of your junk and that would be the Junk King way!

Pittsburgh PA Moving and Junk Hauling

It took over 40 volunteers to clean up a year’s worth of trash that had piled up on Mount Washington. They know it was a year’s worth because this same group consisting of members of the Explorers Club of Pittsburgh, the Allegheny Mon Rescue Group and the Pitt Outdoors Group did this same cleanup last year. But this wasn’t an ordinary “sweep and bag” type of event. These folks put on harnesses and could be seen hanging from the railing as they went diving for the trash. By the end of the three-hour cleanup that had close to 60 bags of trash and 25 bags of recyclable materials. Not bad for a day’s work.

This just goes to show you that if you plan something and have the right help, then you can get the job done efficiently. You should be thinking about this kind of planning for your next move. Yes, you’ll higher professional movers and box up all your belongings but that’s not thinking a few steps ahead. What about a move before the move as in moving out all of your junk? This is where a company like Junk King can be a huge help.

As you plan out starting the next chapter of your life in a new home, you don’t want to kick that off by carrying over all the junk you’ve collected in your last home.
