Richmond Computer Monitor Recycling and Disposal

What do you think the number one trash item is these days? Coffee cups? Fast food wrappers? Soda cans? Actually in terms of tonnage, the fastest growing segment of trash is e-waste. That would be all the gizmos and gadgets we use every day to make our lives better. Things like computers, monitors, cell phones, printers and scanners. The reason why there is so much of this e-waste is because it is constantly being replaced by the latest and greatest. Take a tour of any neighborhood on the day after Christmas and you’re sure to find dozens of empty boxes for flat screens, game systems, Blu-Ray players and all manner of kitchen appliances. But it’s not just at the holidays when we make the switch but all year long. So, what happens to your e-waste?

If you’re like most folks you take that stuff and find a hiding place for it in your home. Maybe it’s under the bed or in a closet or it could just be piled up in a corner. It might be easy to tuck away an outdate desktop computer or monitor but not so easy with a big TV. All of this e-waste will eventually be tossed out (at least it should) and when that happens it has to be disposed of the right way. This means dropping it off at a certified recycling center. However, you don’t have to be the one dropping it off. Not when you can have Junk King Central VA to do the work for you.

Junk King of Central Virginia is another successful branch in the national chain of professional junk haulers. They have been setting the standard for junk removal since 2006. That standard includes sending at least two professional movers on every job. You’ll recognize these workers because they’ll be wearing official Junk King shirts. They’ll also be driving up in the official Junk King truck. Did we mention this is a professional operation?

When the crew does show up at your home, you need only tell them what junk you want taken out and they’ll handle the rest. Not only can Junk King Central VA take away your e-waste but they can clear out any other kind of waste as well. You’ve got a whole truck to fill up so why not take advantage of that? This is when you can finally make room in your home for more important things like a home office or yoga room. There is nothing like the feeling of coming home to a clean house. Let Junk King help you get there!

Spring Cleaning Tips in Richmond

The next time you walk into your home take moment to stand in your open front door and survey the situation. Just how clean is your home? It doesn’t have to pass a military white glove test but were you able to tackle your spring-cleaning to-do list yet? Don’t worry. Putting off cleaning is right up there with going to the gym when it comes to procrastinating. Before you dive into your home spring-cleaning you’ll want to develop a plan of attack and here is where that list can be helpful.

Start out by going through every room and note down what needs to be taken care of. The obvious things like dusting, vacuuming and mopping will make the top of the list but you’ve got to look deeper. What about your baseboards? Ceiling fans? Drapes? Sofa cushions? They should all be given the once over while you’re cleaning. As you create this work list you should also create a supply list. What will you need to get the job done? Don’t let a trip to the grocery store in the middle of your cleaning distract you from getting the job done. Line up all those supplies before you start.

If you’ve got family members helping you clean then assign “zones.” Everyone gets to do their own room but they should also branch out to help with the common living areas and bathrooms. If the work is distributed evenly then there should be no gripping. (Maybe a little gripping!).

Then there is the issue of all your junk. As you make your survey you’re sure to find a lot of stuff you want to toss out. You have the option to donate or to trash. When you hire Junk King of Central VA you can actually take care of both of those options. That’s because Junk King is dedicated to making sure your junk ends up in the right place. Before being dumped in a landfill there are many alternatives such as recycling centers or charities that do refurbishing. You won’t have to worry about doing the sorting. The Junk King Central VA crew handles all of that.

Ann W. of Henrico hired Junk King and was extremely happen with their performance. “They did a great job for us today. Very impressed with the way they broke down items and packed the truck, utilizing all the available space. Will call them again.”

That’s the kind of praise you always hear about Junk King Central Virginia. Hopefully, you’ll only need to call them once for junk removal but it’s good to know they’ll be ready to help with anything you want to toss out.
