The Accidental Sofa Collection: Sofa Removal to the Rescue

Does your basement have an “interesting” array of seating options? Have mismatched old sofas made their way into spare bedrooms and guest quarters?

When it comes to outdated furniture, people tend to be surprisingly good about giving it the heave-ho. But there’s something about sofas and other large pieces that they never seem to leave the house. For one thing, they’re awkward and for another, they’re heavy. And it can be confusing figuring out how to dispose of them.

As far as we’re concerned, large sofa removal and mattress disposal are two of the bulky item jobs you should leave to the pros.

Fast & Easy Furniture Removal in Sonoma

If you have one, two, three, or more old sofas or large recliners ready for removal, it isn’t always as easy as hauling them own to the front curb. You’ll need to schedule an appointment and, depending on where you live, you may have to pay for subsequent pickups. Sonoma follows the Zero Waste initiative, but keep in mind they do not offer donation services. You’ll have to make those arrangements yourself. And many charity organizations do not accept sofas.

5 Terrific Reasons to Donate Cell Phones

Sonoma County’s recycling laws are geared towards eliminating landfill disposal of electronics and other “universal waste” such as batteries, fluorescent lamps, and other devices that contain mercury, lead, cadmium, and copper. Section AB 2901(2004) Cell Phone Recycling specifically requires retailers who sell mobile phones to take back used ones for recycling. But many people don’t turn their old phones in, saving them “just in case.”

When you donate those unused cell phones, though, you can do a world of good. Junk King of Sonoma can pick up and donate all your discarded electronics, including phones, so you can feel good about doing your part for the environment and for others in need.

Why Donate Cell Phones

Donate Cell Phones It’s said that most people like to get rid of their current cell phone every two years or so, when a better model makes its appearance. Since globally more than 5 billion people own cell phones, that means an enormous number of discarded devices. In the U.S. alone, over 400,000 cell phones enter landfills or incinerators every day.

Donating, recycling, or repurposing old cell phones helps save energy, conserve natural resources, protect our waterways, and keeps both reusable and toxic materials out of local landfills.

  1. Donating just one cell phone saves enough energy to power a laptop for over 40 hours!
  2. If Americans recycled or donated those unused cell phones mentioned above, there would be enough energy saved to power more almost 25,000 homes for a year.
  3. Recycle 1 million cells phones and you can provide electricity to 185 households for a year.
  4. A pile of 1 million donated cell phones contains 75 pounds of gold, over 35,000 pounds of copper, and 775 pounds of silver.
  5. Toxic materials can also be recycled and reused, but if they make their way to a landfill, they contaminate the air, soil, and groundwater.
