Although things have gotten better over the years, water pollution is still an area of concern for Sarasota and all of Florida. It doesn’t help matters that a drought drains up the water supplies. What compounds the situation is when there is any type of contamination in the ground level water tables. That can have a direct impact on the water we drink. This potential for danger was made clear a few weeks ago up north in Virginia. There a chemical spill into a creek had an entire town going without fresh water for several days. Could that happen in Sarasota? Hopefully, not but anything that can be done to protect the water supply should become everyone’s responsibility. Top of the list should be responsible e-waste recycling.
Water supplies are threatened by runoff from area landfills. That run off can contain a toxic sludge of hazardous materials that have seeped into the soil from all the decomposing junk. The items that are biodegradable aren’t a threat. Its things like old computers, copiers, fax machines, printers, laptops, cell phones and televisions that can be big trouble. That is why those e-waste items need to be properly disposed off. For responsible e-waste recycling, Sarasota residents know they can call on Junk King.
These are the junk removal experts that have made all levels of recycling part of their mission. Everything that is collected by a Junk King crew gets sorted for recycling. The “easy” items are things like scrap metal, lumber, dirt, plastics and cardboard. There are plenty of recycling centers around Sarasota that can handle those materials. With e-waste recycling, there are more specific requirements. You can just grind up a laptop as you would a pile of newspapers. Instead, those e-waste pieces have to be taken apart by hand and the components sorted. Only then can those raw pieces be properly disposed off.
In some cases, your e-waste can be recycled by being donated to a charity that specializes in fixing up things. If they can repair a hard drive or replace a motherboard in a computer then sell it, the proceeds can funnel back into the community. You don’t have to worry about what should be recycled or donated.
