Seattle Computer Monitor Recycling

“Our goal is to educate the community about responsible recycling practices and provide our friends and neighbors with a convenient solution to a growing problem,” so says Mark Querry, President of American Electronics Recycling.

This is a company who is dedicated to handling the proper disposal of e-waste and that’s a big issue for Seattle and elsewhere. As EPA estimates, there are anywhere between 4 to 8 pounds of lead based in a typical computer monitor or television. A circuit board and flat screen monitor can contain toxic metals. If you were to toss these objects into a landfill any and all of those harmful elements could be released into the environment. That’s why a company like Mark’s is so important. The only hitch is that you have to go to him or wait for a sponsored event. Either way you’ll still be doing all the loading up and driving. Is there a better way? There is if you hire Junk King Seattle.

Junk King Seattle’s teams are composed of professional junk haulers that provide door-to-door service as in your front or back door. Either way you let the Junk King crew in, they’ll be doing all the work of lifting and loading. Yes, every Junk King removal appointment comes with at least two able bodied haulers who will have no problem taking away what you’re tossing out. All of your junk will be loaded onto the Junk King truck for the final drop off. With stuff like e-waste the Junk King crew might just end up stopping by a company like American Electronics Recycling. But whether they go there or some other certified drop off site, you’re not going to be charged any extra. Your cost will be based on how much space your stuff takes up on their truck. No surprise charges. You’ll also know what that price is before anything is moved. That way you can agree or say, “Thanks but no.”

Hoarder Cleanup Help in Seattle

A perfect example of why it is so important to clean out the junk in your home happened recently right here in Seattle. Firefighters responded to an alarm from a 91-year-old woman who had lit a fire in her fireplace when the sparks leaped out and kicked up a fire. The problem was that there was so much debris in the house, the firefighters not only had to contend with the blaze but also moving through stacks of boxes, newspapers and appliances. We’re talking about waist deep clutter and it was a huge problem.

“They’re going in, they’re searching for people, and they’ve got stuff piled up on the second floor up to their waist-level,” Fire chief Moore told a local newspaper. “You’re crawling over things and you can’t really see what they are when you’re trying to search around to see if there’s any type of person in there.”

Luckily, the woman and her son pulled out and taken to local hospital for treatment of minor injuries. The firefighters had to begin the hard work of yanking out all of that junk to make sure there were no hidden embers waiting to flare up.

“It adds a huge challenge to the firefighters,” Moore said. “There could be fire burning under this debris and you just don’t know it.”
