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.

“It’s all about the e-waste.” That’s the concern buzzing about many municipalities like Richmond who find themselves having to deal with the abundant flow of this particular type of trash. According to the city government, electronic waste or e-waste is defined as “any electronic device that is no longer in use.” This includes items like CD players, cell phones, CPUs, microwave ovens, radios, televisions, computers, monitors, VCRs and DVD players. The city goes on to say, “It is illegal to dispose of electronic wastes in the garbage because they contain toxic materials such as lead, mercury and cadmium.” In other words, if you’ve got something that falls under the category of e-waste you’re not supposed to toss it out with the rest of the trash. To do so would invite a citation and/or fine. So, what is your option if you’re tossing out a TV? The best call would be to Junk King of Central Virginia. They’ll know what to do with your e-waste.
