Richmond Junk Recycling Benefits

Recycling your kitchen trash just got a whole easier. Back in January, the city delivered around 5,700 recycling bins to homes in select neighborhoods. Now that number is being bumped up by 57,000 with new 95-gallon recycling bins being dropped off at homes all throughout Richmond. The recycle pick up days remain the same. The difference now is that it will be easier for you to collect and store your recyclables in between pickups. Once you get into the habit of sorting papers, plastics and soda cans you’ll begin doing it without a second thought. You should be aware that your opportunities to recycle don’t have to stop with the weekly pickup. If you’ve got some items that can’t fit into that bin but you still want them recycled, then give Junk King a call. They’ve been recycling all kinds of junk for over ten years!

Since they started operations back in 2005, Junk King has dedicated itself to keeping the environment as clean as possible. They accomplish that goal by diverting a major portion of what they collect from local landfills. In fact, Junk King is currently maintaining a respectable 60% diversion rate. That is a significant amount of junk that won’t be left to rot away and potentially cause harm to soil, air and water.

The Junk King crews who will be assigned to your junk removal will be trained to spot those items that can be repurposed. These include common objects like furniture, clothing and appliances. However, Junk King won’t stop there. They can also recycle yard waste, lumber and concrete. There is very little that Junk King can’t turn into something else!

Junk King has also established working relationships with numerous charities throughout the Richmond area. Many of these charities employ residents to help refurbish the items that are dropped off. That way those pieces can be sold in a thrift store or directly donated. All of this means your junk won’t be going to waste. Best of all, you don’t even have to ask for the recycling service. It is going to happen automatically.

Because Junk King recycles a lot of what they collect, they are able to avoid making trips to the landfill. That means they also avoid those hefty dumping fees and Junk King is happy to pass those savings onto you. If you want to benefit from junk removal and junk recycling, then Junk King is the only call to make.
