It feels like nothing lasts as long as it used to. From bulky beige computers and fax machines to tv screens that become obsolete as soon as larger, thinner versions make their debut, it’s actually concerning just how fast electronic gadgets are becoming obsolete. As such, electronic waste is becoming a huge problem worldwide.

Why Donate or Recycle Electronics?
With every generation, electronics get better and more efficient. That said, the world is now producing over 50 million tons of e-waste every year.
Let’s put this into perspective. 50 million tons of e-waste:
- Weighs more than all commercial airlines ever made
- Is the equivalent of 375 cruise ships
- Is worth over $57.18 billion – more than the GDP of most countries.
Unfortunately, only about 20% of electronic waste is recycled, and the United States produces most of the e-waste. It’s estimated that Americans throw away over 9 million tons of electronic products every year, accounting for 70% of the hazardous waste in landfills.
By weight, small electronic equipment, such as screens and monitors, lamps, vacuum cleaners, and microwaves, account for the largest share of e-waste. All of which are easily recycled. In fact, all electronic products are made from valuable materials. Donating or recycling your electronics conserves natural resources and prevents them from ending up in your local landfill.
What’s more, circuit boards, batteries, CRTS, and even fridges and refrigerators contain materials hazardous to the environment. Some old TV sets even contain lead. All these toxins can leach into the air and soil at landfills contaminating the environment around you.
But worry not; Junk King Sonoma is here for you. With Junk King, recycling your old electronics is easier than ever. We’ll manage every aspect for you, from pick-up to hauling and recycling.
Call Junk King, of course. We’ll haul away any and all electronics you need to get rid of.
With that said, your electronic waste could easily be someone else’s treasure. Old cell phones and computers can be refurbished and sold. You can also donate your old electronics to charities and donation centers.
Note: Although electronics are fully recyclable, they may not be accepted by your weekly garbage disposal service, especially if your state has e-waste disposal and recycling laws in place. For this reason, you also cannot leave your old electronics by the curbside.
With Junk King Sonoma, you don’t have to pay mind to any of these rules. We offer:
By luxury home pick-up, we mean you don’t have to lift a finger. Doesn’t matter how bulky or heavy a piece of equipment is; we do all the hauling and heavy lifting. It really does not get better than this.
- Excellent customer service
Our reviews speak for themselves. We’re the best junk removal company in North America for a reason. We ensure that all your wishes are taken care of, and we are licensed, bonded, and insured to ensure no liability falls on your shoulders.
- Transparent and fair pricing
We price our services based on how much space your junk takes up in our trucks. Pricing by volume, not weight, that’s our philosophy at Junk King. We’ll provide you with an estimate, with no hidden fees, as soon as we arrive on your property and inspect the waste in need of disposal.
We’ll also beat any written estimates.
There’s absolutely no reason why electronic waste should end up in landfills. We endeavor to recycle as much material as we possibly can every time. We take both large and small e-waste items and see to it that they end up in the right place. If the electronics are still functioning, we’ll try as much as possible to place them with a charity.
What About My Data?
It’s no secret that electronics contain sensitive information. As such, it’s crucial to take some necessary steps before disposing of your electronics. Here’s what you can do:
- Sign out of all accounts on your device
- Remove your personally identifying information and sensitive documents from the device
- Reset the phone or computer to factory settings
More importantly, partner with a trustworthy disposal company. Check the reputation of the junk disposal company and make sure their certifications and licenses have not lapsed. If a company is offering services for free, it’s better to steer clear of them.
Electronics recycling is a crucial aspect of addressing our current environmental challenges. By responsibly disposing of electronic devices and recycling their components, we can conserve resources, reduce pollution, and protect the planet. We all have a part to play, and Junk King can help you fulfill yours.
