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.
