What Is Responsible Yard Waste Removal?

Whether you just completed a large landscaping project or have large amounts of plant debris after a storm, excessive yard waste on your property can present a real problem. Your local trash pickup company does a good job with normal loads, but they simply are not equipped to handle special situations like this. As a responsible property owner in Sonoma, you’re wondering what the safest, easiest, and most cost-effective way to conduct yard waste removal.

At Junk King Sonoma, we provide a service that fulfills this exact need. By simply scheduling a pickup with us, we’ll come to your property and remove all your yard waste and take it where it can be most useful.

Types of Yard Waste

Yard Waste Removal You already know that dead leaves, tree branches, and other plant life that’s collected or accumulated on your property qualifies as yard waste, but you may not know that many other materials you might throw away can also be disposed of responsibly. We’ll be happy to take:

  • Displaced soil from a project
  • Removed tree stumps
  • Sod you replaced for new grass or turf
  • Fencing or plasterboard from recent renovations

We know that these types of debris can pile up quickly either because you have an ongoing project or because you’re always gardening or otherwise tinkering with your property. You can request us for yard waste removal on a regular scheduled rotation or just a single date.

Where Your Waste Goes

Computer Disposal the Right Way

Do you have an old computer laying around the house or office that is just taking up space? Have you tried to sell the thing, or even give it away, with no luck? It’s time to think about disposing of your computer properly. According to California law, you can’t simply throw away your old computers in the normal trash like you would with other items. What are you supposed to do then?

Old computers that no longer have a functional purpose are considered electronic waste. You may have seen signs or advertisements around Sonoma providing locations and times for events where e-waste is gathered, but getting to these locations can be difficult. While this is one way to responsibly recycle, it’s not ideal due to limited locations and hours. At Junk King, we make following the law and being environmentally responsible quick and easy.

Why Computer Disposal Is Important

Computer Disposal There are several reasons why its important for people like you to handle their computer disposal properly. The first is environmental. Motherboards, memory, hard drives, CPUs and especially monitors contain heavy metals and toxic materials that can contaminate the groundwater and harm local wildlife. Sonoma is a beautiful place that we don’t want to see destroyed by our old, unwanted technology.

Another reason proper electronic waste disposal is important is that even old computers have lots of valuable raw materials in them. These include gold, silver, copper, aluminum, lead and a wide range of other valuable metals. Left to sit unused, these materials can become toxic, but they can be used to manufacture new devices when recycled correctly. This means less mining of new raw materials is required, reducing the amount of damage done to the environment throughout the world.
