Recently, San Diego Self Storage (SDSS) teamed up with Recycle San Diego (RSD) to provide local residents with the opportunity to drop off all their e-waste for proper recycling. For seven days in May, the Self Storage facility in National City was open from 10 am to 5 pm and accepted anything with a plug.
Managing Member J. Terry Aston explained why this was so important for the area. “Heavy metals can leach into landfill soil and then into our underground water supply, causing severe and even life-threatening illnesses. TV’s and computer monitors use cathode ray tubes (CRTs), which contain a significant amount of lead, a highly toxic heavy metal. Printed circuit boards contain plastic and copper, and most have small amounts of chromium, lead solder, nickel and zinc. RSD’s primary goal is to reuse and re-purpose components before recycling.”
Usually events like this are held on a random Saturday morning. At least with this one you had an entire week to drop off your e-waste. If you missed the opportunity you don’t have to wait until next year. You can call Junk King North San Diego and arrange for all your e-waste to be picked up right from your home. That means your old TVs that have been replaced with flat screens can finally be tossed out. The same for the outdated computers you have in your closet or any video gear.
Do you even still have a VCR? When Junk King takes your e-waste they make sure it is dropped off at the right recycling facility. In fact, they do that for the vast majority of all the junk they collect. That means your furniture, scrap metal, wood and even dirt can all be repurposed and reused. Best of all you don’t have to do any of the sorting.
Even if it takes a few extra trips to hit all the right recycling centers, Junk King North San Diego is happy to oblige and it won’t cost you any extra. That’s because Junk King will charge you strictly based on how much space your junk will take up in their truck. Did we mention you get to fill up a truck with your junk? That is another bonus of hiring Junk King. Once your estimate has been determined, you won’t be charged any extras. In, out and nobody gets hurt!
Along with your old TV, Junk King can help clear out your backyard to get ready for summer or make room in your garage for your car! How can you put Junk King San Diego to work for you? Call them today to discuss your options.
