This past Earth Day a new Guinness World Record was set and Sacramento was front and center for all the excitement. This wasn’t the world’s longest set of fingernails or beard made of bees but something of greater importance for all of us. The Roseville based Sim Recycling Solutions launched a single day e-waste recycling at drop-off locations in Sacramento, Long Beach, Dallas, New York and Chicago. By the end of the day, over 80,000 pounds of e-waste was collected and headed off for recycling. That’s the kind of World Record we can all benefit from.
Sims Recycling Solutions is in the business to “divert thousands of pounds of electronic waste from local landfills and focus much-needed attention on why recycling electronics is necessary.” That is according to company president Steve Skurnac. While Steve was busy setting up the collection here in America, there were similar events being held in Austria, Belgium, England, Germany, India, Scotland, South Africa, Sweden and the Netherlands. It’s the quintessential Earth Day activity. But supposed it’s the beginning of the school year (which it is) and you have e-waste you want recycled (which you do)? What are you supposed to do? That’s easy: call Junk King Sacramento at 1-888-888-JUNK.
Junk King is the local Sacramento based business that handles all types of junk removal big and small. Picking up electronic waste is a specialty of Junk King. If you have any old computers, fax machines, televisions, monitors or keyboards Junk King will make sure that stuff gets to the right recycling center. That’s vital because none of that unused equipment should be tossed into a landfill. E-waste can also include boom boxes, cell phones, microwaves or any type of small kitchen appliance that needs a plug in for power. But Junk King isn’t just about e-waste. They can take away anything you want to get rid of.
Take a tour of your closets, garages and attics. How much of the stuff you have stored in there could be tossed out? What’s stopping you? Climbing up those stairs? Don’t worry; Junk King Sacramento will make the climb. All you have to do is designate what you want removed and Junk King will handle the rest. Most of us hang onto junk because we don’t have a “removal” plan. Junk King can provide that plan in the form of an empty truck and a crew of professional movers who are certified and insured to handle the job.
Once they have their truck loaded up, they’ll head off to the proper recycling facility. This might mean a drop off at the e-waste center and another one at the furniture center. But don’t worry; you’re not going to be charged for multiple drop-offs. Instead, you’ll be provided with an estimate as to how much space your stuff will take up in their trunk. That’s the price you’ll pay and you can see on this site how that breaks down. This is the smart and eco-friendly way to handle e-waste or any other kind of junk.
