The faster that companies improve our technology, the quicker we want to get our hands on the new gadgets. Whether that means upgrading your cell phone or switching computers you’ve probably got several pieces of e-waste being kept around your home. E-waste or electronic waste is pretty much anything that needs to be plugged in for power (or recharging) that you’re no longer using. Do you really need to keep a hold of that out dated equipment?
You should know that e-waste can leave a trail of hazardous byproducts in its wake when it isn’t properly disposed of. E-waste contains heavy metals such as lead, mercury, chromium, cadmium, mercury and zinc. Those can all seep into the dirt we plant food on and the water we drink. Nobody wants that. That’s why you’ll often hear about community groups sponsoring an e-waste drop off day.
The most recent of these types of events was sponsored by Lexington Junior High School and All Green Electronics. They had a single collection a few weeks ago on a Saturday morning. If you missed the drop-off day don’t feel guilt. It’s not easy working your schedule around a small window of opportunity like that. Especially when you have to do all the loading and driving. The better option would be to call Junk King Orange County and let them handle the job.
Junk King OC knows all about e-waste recycling. Its part of their mandate to make sure any type of electronic gear they collect is dropped off at a certified recycling center. That’s where those items will be disassembled and sorted properly. In fact, Junk King OC does that with most of what they collect. It doesn’t matter if you’re tossing out an old sofa, stove or car fender. The Junk King crew will make sure it ends up in a safe environment for the Orange County area. Often they could drop off items like furniture or appliances that need fixing to a charity. That charity has workers trained in the art of refurbishing that can bring new life to your old stuff. Those items can then be sold to benefit the charity or merely donated to those in need. Can you think of a better way to get rid of your sofa? Probably not.
You’ll find that working with Junk King OC is definitely on your time clock. The appointment you make for the pickup will be around your schedule. The Junk King crew knows how valuable you time is and won’t keep you waiting. The moment they arrive they’ll make quick work of loading up all the e-waste and other junk you’re tossing out. Once it’s one the back of their truck you can bid it all a fond farewell. You won’t be seeing your junk again thanks to Junk King.
