Count On Junk King For Reliable Junk Recycling

An e-waste recycling event took place on September 15th in Warminster at the William Tennent High School. It was only for four hours and you had to bring whatever item you wanted recycled to the school so it is understandable if you missed it. These events pop up throughout the year. They are certainly noble efforts to help clear homes and businesses of e-waste but they’re also very tight “windows.” Does this mean you have to wait for the next even before you can get rid of your e-waste? Not if you call Junk King Philadelphia. They do junk recycling all the time.

One of the guiding principles of Junk King has always been to focus on environmentally friendly disposal practices. Here in Bucks County, there are several recycling centers but they all handle different types of materials. There is one for metal, one for plastics and one for e-waste to name a few. Junk King has working relationships with all of them and they make routine drops offs throughout the week. Here’s how the process works:

The Junk King crews are all trained to look out for those items that can be recycled. Once a truck has a full load, it returns to the depot with the items are removed and sorted. The various recyclables are put in separate piles. When those piles are big enough to fill a truck, they’re loaded up and dropped off at the appropriate recycling center but the recycling isn’t limited to just that.

Donating to charities can also be considered part of the recycling chain. Any time you can divert an item away from a landfill, you are promoting a “green” way of handling disposal. Charities can repair and refurbish a lot of items. They can also take in things like clothing, toys, books and other household goods and see to it that they get to the right people that can use them again. All of these drop offs happen long after Junk King has removed all your unwanted items. Let Junk King Philadelphia’s junk recycling program be part of your commitment to a greener Pennsylvania.

Bucks County Debris Removal

When you think of hurricanes you think of Florida and other coastal areas. However, as a recent study found out, Pennsylvania was hit hard by Super Storm Sandy and yes that was a hurricane that morphed into a much bigger storm system.

“Millions of Pennsylvanians have endured extreme weather causing extremely big problems for Pennsylvania’s health, safety, environment and economy,” said Adam Garber, Field Director with PennEnvironment Research & Policy Center. “Given that global warming will likely fuel even more extreme weather, we need to cut dangerous carbon pollution now.”

This was all part of a new report that used information compiled by FEMA to find out how many PA counties were hit by storms between 2007 and 2012. The short answer is “a lot.” Here are some of the facts published in this report:

“Since 2007, federally declared weather-related disasters affected 52 counties in Pennsylvania housing 11,361,524 people—or nearly 9 out of 10 Pennsylvanians. Since 2007, Bucks County has experienced eight federally declared weather-related disasters. Recent weather-related disasters in Bucks County included Hurricane Sandy, Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee. In 2012 alone, federally declared weather-related disasters affected Pennsylvania counties that impacted the housing of 11,361,524 people.”

Bucks County PA Junk Recycling

Keeping Bucks County beautiful isn’t just a nice pledge; it’s actually the work of a group of concerned residents who are determined to do all that can to make sure this area is idyllic as it can be. Keep Bucks County Beautiful is an off-shoot of Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful. It was that committee which released a recent report on the illegal dumps they discovered in Bucks County. Here’s what they found:

“The Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful survey of the county identified 123 illegal dumpsites containing an estimated 223 tons of trash.  Of the items inventoried at each dumpsite assessed, 76% of the sites contained tires, 71% contained yard waste, 67% had construction and demolition waste, 66% had recyclables, and 54% of the sites had household trash.  Illegal dumpsites pose many threats to the health and safety of humans and wildlife, including giving mosquitoes a place to breed.  West Nile Virus, carried by mosquitoes, has been a primary concern for environmental officials.”

The goal of this group is to pull together volunteers, local municipalities and businesses by utilizing three areas of focus: Prevent it, Clean It and Keep It. That refers to stopping illegal dumping, cleaning up the community and making sure to recycle whenever possible.  Outside of your home, it does take a group of dedicated volunteers to keep Bucks County clean but you can do the same helpful work with your own junk especially if you pick the right company to remove that junk.
