A local group called the Texas Campaign for the Environment is tackling the growing problem of getting rid of electronic waste by sponsoring a bill called the Producer TakeBack Recycling Program. The idea is that the manufacturers of computers, televisions, monitors and other electronic devices should be responsible for collecting and recycling those items. Here’s how they explain it on their website: “Texas Campaign for the Environment and the Computer TakeBack Campaign advocate Producer TakeBack Recycling, an equitable waste prevention solution for collecting and recycling electronics that creates a cleaner environment and saves taxpayers money. Producer TakeBack Recycling is a product and waste management system in which manufacturers (“producers”), not consumers or government, are financially responsible for the environmentally safe management of their products when they are obsolete.”
While that is a very noble idea and one worth supporting we all know how long it takes for the government to do something right! By the time this bill would come up for a vote and then be implemented you might already have gone through a half a dozen cell phones, three desktop computers and two televisions! Does this mean you should be hanging onto all that electronic waste while you waiting for this all to be sorted out? There is no need to do that especially when there’s a Junk King right here in San Antonio that can handle all your computer recycling and disposal needs.
Junk King San Antonio is part of a national franchise specializing in the removal of all that stuff that clutters up our lives. There is a level of quality that has come to be expected of a Junk King business. One of the main missions of the Junk King is to divert a majority of all items they collect away from landfills and into proper recycling centers. Junk King San Antonio is no exception. When it comes to computer recycling and disposal these are very delicate matters to handle because of the hazardous materials that are released when electronic waste is crushed. In other words, you can’t just toss out a computer in the garbage; it has to be properly disposed of.
Keep in mind that if you have a computer you want to get rid of and hire the hauling crew they don’t just have to pick up that one computer and call it a day. They’ll be showing up at your home with a big empty truck that you can fill to the rafters with all your junk. This can include an old coffee table or bedroom set you want to get rid of. It can also mean tossing out all those engine parts and rusty bumpers that might be collecting dust in your garage. No item is too big or too small for the Junk King crew to take away. You can start with your old computer and end with all the junk in your San Antonio home!
