E Waste Recycling in Bucks County PA

As you work your way through your spring-cleaning chores you might stumble upon some e-waste that you’d love to get rid of. Unfortunately, these items can no longer be put out to the curb for pickup. You can thank the Covered Device Recycling Act that became law in January. There is a good reason for this. Anything that has electronic components like a computer, printer or TV could also have hazardous materials that would be released if those things are left to rust or decompose in a landfill. There is good news and bad news when it come to getting rid of your old e-waste junk.

The bad news actually might prove to be good: There are often scheduled drop-offs of e-waste held throughout the year. The bad news is that it is not always easy to find these drop-off events. Even when you do get wind of an event it might not work out for your schedule. The good news is that Junk King Bucks County is standing by to help. These are the junk removal specialists who are new to the Bucks County area but they certainly aren’t new to the hauling business.

Doylestown PA Moving and Junk Hauling

A few residents in Doylestown might have recently experienced a delay in their mail delivery. That’s because a mail truck bound for the area got into a bit of a mishap. When a cargo strap broke on a mail truck at the intersection of Bristol Road, the contents shifted and busted out of the back gate. The result was several bins of undelivered mail scattered all over the road. Postal workers and police scrambled to gather up all the mail but it had to go back to the processing center in Philly to be resorted and then delivered to Doylestown. It took about 2 hours to clear up the mess. Needless to say, morning rush hour traffic was at a standstill.

This is clearly a cautionary tale about moving: If you overload your truck, you could have all of that spilling out onto the highway. If you’re planning a move, you want to make sure you’re only taking what you need for your new home and not all of your junk. You can’t leave it behind. Instead, hire Junk King Bucks County for a junk move before the real move.

No matter where you are living now, it’s a safe bet that you’ve probably accumulated a lot of junk over the years. Remember when you first moved into your space? All those empty rooms and closets? Even a garage that you could park a car in. What happened over the following years is what happens to everyone; your house got filled up with stuff. Most of what we have in our homes are practical items like furniture, TVs, kitchen appliances, bedroom sets and clothes. Yet every one of those items could have been replaced over the years. What happened to the old stuff? Because you couldn’t throw it away, it ended up in your basement, garage or attic. Out of sight and out of mind, right? Well, now that you’re moving you certainly don’t want to take all that useless stuff with you. That’s where Junk King comes into play.
