Everything You Need to Know About Appliance Recycling

Are you investing in new, more energy efficient appliances? What will you do with the old ones? Or what happens when your favorite appliances just stop working? You’ve probably seen a lot of abandoned appliances lying at the curb waiting for a dump truck to take them to the local landfill. But that’s a big mistake and in the case of refrigerators, washers, and dryers, it’s against the law in California to abandon one without removing its doors!

The safer and more eco-friendly alternative is appliance recycling.

The Upside of Appliance Recycling

It’s estimated that in the U.S. there are approximately 200 million household refrigerators, 40 million AC units, and 15 million dehumidifiers. About nine million refrigerators, six million AC units, and one million dehumidifiers are thrown out each year.

The biggest problem with just tossing these appliances into a landfill is that refrigerators contain ozone-depleting refrigerants or foam blowing agents. AC units and dehumidifiers also contain harmful refrigerants. While replacing these energy-sucking appliances is good for the environment and your wallet, it’s important they be properly disposed of and their harmful chemicals captured and recycled.

The benefits to appliance recycling are significant:

  • Emission of harmful chemicals present in refrigerants and foams is prevented.
  • PCBs, mercury, and used oil are properly disposed of.
  • Landfill space is saved.
  • Significant amounts of plastics, metals, and glass are recycled.
  • Energy consumption is reduced.

Not all old appliances need to be dismantled. Some newer models that are still working can be sent to local non-profit organizations for resale or donation to a family or facility in need.

Can Construction Debris Be Recycled?

There are three ways to dispose of construction debris: donate it, recycle it, or trash it. Unfortunately, many homeowners and construction companies still trash it which often means it ends up in landfills. At Junk King of Sonoma, we offer construction debris removal that puts an emphasis on repurposing and recycling.

What is Construction Debris?

Excavator and Drill removing debris in street In California, construction and demolition debris includes:

  • Wood
  • Drywall
  • Metal
  • Concrete
  • Glass
  • Insulation
  • Soil
  • Cardboard

Construction debris can make up to 26% of California’s waste stream. With proper planning, a large percentage of this material can be reduced, reused, or recycled.

Eco-Friendly Construction Debris Removal

California’s mandatory green building code, known as CALGreen, requires most new construction jobs to divert at least 50% of their C&D debris. Some local jurisdictions have requirements that exceed this code. Sonoma County’s Zero Waste program includes a section on construction debris removal. The code is updated every three years to better reflect current construction recycling conditions and options.

There are substantial benefits to reusing and recycling construction debris:

  • Saves money by lowering disposal fees and reducing the purchase of new materials.
  • Natural resources are conserved.
  • Landfills take longer to fill up.
  • Methane emissions are reduced as landfill materials break down.

Significant savings and environmental benefits are also achieved when construction companies choose deconstructing instead of demolition. The average savings on a 2,000 square foot home include 2400 gallons of water, 33 mature trees, and the greenhouse gas emissions equivalent of removing three cars from the road for a year.

Junk King of Sonoma’s professional, fast, and green construction debris removal services can help you dispose of all your reusable and recyclable construction materials.

Why Recycle Construction Debris

Each type of construction materials has its own requirements for disposal. Junk King of Sonoma’s experienced crews help you sort through and figure out which construction debris can be recycled, reused, or repurposed, as well as which materials are considered hazardous. There are two ways to recycle construction debris:

  1. Recycling converts waste materials into new products. The goal is to prevent the consumption of new raw materials and energy usage and reduce the amount of waste that ends up in landfills. It also works to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and air and water pollution, preserving natural resources for future generations.
  2. Recovery and recycling takes useful unwanted debris and processes it into new materials or forms of energy for heating, electricity, and fuel.

Since buildings account for about a third of raw material used in the U.S., choosing to recycle is a smart choice that saves natural resources and reduces unnecessary waste.
