The Right Way To Dispose Of Old Computers

An old desktop or laptop computer could easily fit into your trash can. However, that is the last place an old computer should ever and up in. Once something goes into the trash it will make a direct path to the local landfill. Electronic waste should never end up in a landfill as it poses too much harm. Instead, the right way to disposable computers is to have them recycled at a certified facility. That might seem like a lot of extra work just to get rid of an old computer. Thankfully, when you turn those old computers over to Junk King Salt Lake City, then they will be disposed of the right way.

All The Rest Of The E-Waste

Along with your old computers you might have some additional e-waste items that you can turn over to Junk King. E-waste is defined as anything that needs power to operate. That means the junk King crew can clear out your old televisions, monitors, printers, game consoles and DVD players. Once you have replaced all of those items, they no longer have any value. They can all be dropped off at the same recycling center that your old computer went up at.

The cost for Junk King service will depend on how everything fits on to the truck. Those random e-waste items probably will not take up a lot of room. That means you’ll have plenty of leftover room for anything else that you would like to clear out. This is your chance to get rid of old furniture, clothing and other household goods. Getting rid of all that unwanted stuff will certainly have a positive impact on your living environment.

Getting rid of your old computers and the rest of your unwanted junk can happen with one call to Junk King Salt Lake City. Make that call today.

 

Junk King Makes Rubbish Disappear

It would be nice if we could point to clutter and rubbish around the house and make them disappear. Unfortunately, those items end up being tucked away out of the garage or stuffed in the closets. These all the things that can be tossed out into the trash otherwise they would be long gone by. If you have reached the point where you are feeling a bit overwhelmed by all the rubbish in your home, then it is time to set up a rubbish removal session with Junk King Salt Lake City.

A Good Deal Goal

Junk King is going to dispatch a team of movers and a big truck to help with your rubbish removal agenda. This is a crew that would do all the lifting and loading work on your behalf. That includes bringing anything up from down the basement. Just think of what a difference that could make if you could get rid of the unwanted furniture and appliances down there. The Junk King crew will also go up to the second floor to bring down any boxes of old clothing and other unwanted items. You can literally send them to every room in the house to get rid of things that you no longer want.

That same Junk King crew will be packing up the truck with all your items into a space as little as possible. The reason for that is that they want to make sure they have room for the next pickups. But it is also to make sure that you are getting a good deal for the service. Junk King charges a flat rate based on volume and not weight. Junk King always want to make their sessions fair and affordable.

When you need rubbish to disappear from your home, you need to put Junk King Salt Lake City on the job. Book your rubbish removal session today.

How to Get Your Broken Refrigerator Picked Up

Moving a broken refrigerator is a difficult task to do alone. These household appliances are heavy, awkward to maneuver, and require the combined strength of a two-person team to move even a few feet. If you’re trying to get rid of your old refrigerator, Junk King is here to help. And since you can’t just throw your broken refrigerator out with the rest of your trash, you’ll want to work with a professional junk removal company to ensure it’s disposed of appropriately.

 

Professional Refrigerator Removal Services

Even if you can manage to get your old fridge to the curb, many municipalities don’t offer refrigerator pick up or recycling as part of their waste disposal services. So, instead of handling refrigerator disposal on your own, allow our Junk King team to take care of it. Whether you have a small home-sized refrigerator or a dozen chest freezers, we have the skills to pick up and haul away both working and non-working refrigerators. In fact, our big red trucks can fit up to eight stand-up, full-sized refrigerators!

Besides doing all the heavy lifting, we’ll ensure your old fridge is donated, recycled, or disposed of in an eco-friendly fashion. By properly disposing of your old refrigerator, we can prevent the harmful chemicals contained in these appliances from damaging the environment, keeping our planet green.

How Junk King Handles Refrigerator Pick up and Disposal

Old appliances such as refrigerators pose a real safety hazard, especially to young children. You may have heard some horror stories about older refrigerators and freezers, regardless of their size. The good news is that Junk King offers proper means for refrigerator disposal, so it doesn’t have to be challenging for you.

When it comes to disposing of broken appliances, including your mini-fridge, Junk King provides a couple of options. If your refrigerator is still in working condition, we may donate it to someone who will make good use of it.

Whether it’s a thrift store in your area, a homeless shelter, a group home, or other types of residential facilities, there is always someone willing to make good use of your working mini-fridge. By donating your functional fridge, you’ll not only feel good about contributing to a charitable cause, but you can even get a receipt that you can use for a tax deduction.

Commercial Fridge and Freezer removal

Besides domestic fudges, Junk King can remove refrigerators or freezers of any size. We have all the equipment and manpower to pick up a large fridge up a small stairway, down your basement steps, or out through the garage. We can also remove commercial appliances if you’re renovating your restaurant or upgrading your old equipment. Whether it’s a commercial refrigerator, freezer, oven, stove, flattop, dishwasher, range, or other large appliance, we’ve got you covered.

We will remove and haul away any old appliance and recycle it in an eco-friendly manner. Some appliances such as a/c window units and refrigerators contain Freon, a solvent that can harm the environment. We’ll ensure that Freon is handled carefully and collected by a certified recycling center before recycling the appliance itself. You can count on Junk King to handle all the recycling process for your items, and rest assured your commercial refrigerator will be disposed of the correct way.

Recycling Your Old Appliances

As of 2017, about 22 states had banned appliances such as refrigerators from being placed in landfills. This includes Florida, California, Illinois, Massachusetts, New York, Pennsylvania, and more. So, if you can’t donate your refrigerator or convince your appliance dealer to pick it up, recycling the appliance could be the next option to try.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has laid down a responsible appliance disposal program known as RAD. Fortunately, Junk King can help you find the right refrigerator recycling solution that adheres to the EPA requirements.

Refrigerators and freezers also contain recyclable glass, metals, and plastics. However, we usually recover and dispose of certain parts of your old fridge correctly before recycling the rest of the appliance. Here are some common refrigerator components recovered with recycling:

  • Metals and plastics are removed and fully recycled whenever applicable.
  • Compressors are extracted and reused in other appliances.
  • Glass shelving and dividers are broken and taken to glass recycling plants.
  • Switches or thermostats with mercury are removed and distributed to licensed handlers for salvaging.
  • Oils are distilled and reused in other machines.
  • Compressor oils contaminated by refrigerant are carefully removed and disposed of appropriately.
  • Polyurethane foam is taken to local waste-to-energy incinerators to generate electricity that’s channeled back to the grid.

Besides recovering valuable materials, appliance recycling can help prevent the emission of greenhouse gases to the environment. It also prevents the release of used oil into the soil and groundwater while reducing energy consumption.

Scrapping Your Refrigerator

According to the Energy Star, thousands of local scrap metal recyclers may recycle old fridges and freezers. Junk King can help you haul away your broken appliance to a certified scrap metal recycler for assurance that your refrigerator will be properly recycled. But keep in mind that most scrap yards only accept a mini-fridge if it’s been drained of the fluids. Junk King works with licensed recycling facilities that can have the chemicals removed legally and safely.

Our priority is preserving the environment, so we’ll ensure your old appliances end up in the right place, such as a local charity or a recycling facility.

Our professional and insured appliance removal crew will call 15 minutes before arriving on site. Once there, we’ll issue you with a free estimate based on the amount of space your appliances take up in our truck. All you’ll have to do is to point at the refrigerator, and we’ll haul it into our junk removal truck with no hidden fees.
