Here’s What You Need to Know About Household Chemical Waste

Household chemical waste comes in a lot of different forms. Oil-based latex paints, wood varnish, and garden chemicals like pesticides and fertilizer could all be considered household waste because they pose a danger to your health, and even public health, if improperly disposed of.

Household Chemical Waste Can’t be Flushed, Abandoned, or Thrown Away 

Chemical Waste That means that you can’t simply flush household chemical waste down the toilet and call it a day. Something as seemingly innocuous as tile cleaner or carpet cleaner could wind up doing real damage to the environment and local water systems if flushed away or poured down the drain.

At the same time, many personal electronics like computers, monitors, and old cell phones contain heavy metals like lead and mercury that make them dangerous to throw in with the normal trash. The same thing goes for light bulbs and thermometers, which could also contain mercury.

The problem with household chemical waste is that it can leach into the soil if left just anywhere, and it can certainly get into local water systems if flushed down the toilet. For that reason, you need to take extra precautions when disposing of a lot of the stuff in your garage: gasoline, motor oil, antifreeze, and even pool chemicals require special treatment.

Whether you’re talking about stuff in the garage or cleaning products in the cupboard, you’re talking about household hazardous waste. Although Junk King doesn’t take hazardous waste, you can call on Junk King for most other kinds of garage cleanouts: tires, books, boxes, windows, and rubbish.

Pouring out a household cleaner in the regular trash could endanger the health of local sanitation workers, and flushing that same cleaner down the toilet might contaminate your septic tank. In fact, the state of California has for over a decade banned folks from tossing fluorescent bulbs and batteries in the trash because both are considered “universal” waste.

Steps to Reduce Household Chemical Waste 

Both Junk King and the CalRecycle are committed to making it easier to responsibly dispose of household hazardous waste and universal waste. That said, there are steps you can take to reduce the amount of chemical waste in the first place.

The Environmental Protection Agency recommends reducing your purchases of cleaning products that contain hazardous materials. The EPA also says that it would be a good idea to use environmentally friendly products (e.g., greener laundry and dishwasher detergents) or even using DIY alternatives to bug spray where possible.

At the same time, you can often accomplish the same thing as, say, drain-clog removers (a.k.a., Drano) or furniture polish do with much less of a negative impact on the environment. For example, a plunger and plumber’s snake (auger) can unclog drains. Lemon juice, vegetable oil, and a towelette can also give your wood furniture a nice, clean sheen.

As America’s greenest junk removal service, Junk King takes and recycles and/or donates all kinds of items, including electronic waste. Though electronic waste, or e-waste, often contains hazardous materials like lead and mercury, e-waste is typically considered universal waste. Junk King actually takes e-waste like computers, monitors, and printers.

Junk King Takes E-waste…Not Hazardous Waste! 

That’s important because old cathode ray tube televisions and monitors contain lead, which can pollute the air, soil, and water if improperly disposed of. The thing to remember is that Junk King accepts electronic waste, but doesn’t take hazardous waste like paint, gasoline, pool chemicals, and household cleaners.

For virtually everything else, Junk King can help. Call on Junk King for foreclosure cleanouts, office cleanouts, furniture and appliance removal, construction waste removal, and yard waste removal.

Everything You Need to Know About Construction Waste Management

Responsible construction waste management has quickly become an essential ingredient to sustainable building. The end goal is ensuring that harmful materials aren’t being put back into the environment and that everything that can be reused is being put back into circulation. You’re looking to minimize waste where possible, ideally by precisely planning out how much raw material you need beforehand.

Construction Waste Management: Reduce, Recycle, and Reuse 

Construction Waste Management These basic principles of construction waste management and sustainable building have even been put together into a helpful mnemonic by waste management experts. The three Rs: reduce, recycle, and reuse. That’s the name of the game when it comes to responsible construction waste management.

Construction waste itself is just what you might expect: anything from unused rebar to extra roofing shingles. A lot of this waste, though, can actually be responsible recycled, according to Waste Management.

What’s Fair Game? 

Concrete, porcelain, tiles, lumber, most metals, rock, most insulation, some carpet, and rigid plastics can be put back into circulation and recycled. As with all recycling efforts, the end goal is retaining as much value as possible….and perhaps adding more value.

When you incorporate recycling efforts into your next building cleanup you’re definitely adding value and making your construction waste management more sustainable for the environment.

You’d be surprised how rocks and concrete can be recycled into road base whereas plastics and metals you might simply flick in the dumpster could be recycled into new consumer goods like plastic bottles and metal cans.

Earn LEED Certification 

By recycling and reusing where possible you’ll able be able to earn LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) points towards your next project. And there’s a lot of construction and demolition waste in the United States: 170 million tons in a recent year.

LEED certification for construction waste management lets you show the community that you’re serious about reducing waste, recycling, and reusing…and it might even provide financial incentives.

As you can see from following this link the first three of nine credits that you can earn towards LEED certification deal with everything that’s been talked about above: Storage and collection of recyclables (first credit), construction waste management (second credit), and materials reuse (third credit).

The Environmental Protection Agency put together an extensive list of non-hazardous demolition and construction waste that should ideally be recycled or reused in some form as well.

Concrete and wood items obviously comprise a lot of the recyclable demolition waste but so does roofing, insulation, carpet, refrigerants, electrical conduit, and transformers.

Now, the important thing to bear in mind with construction waste is that 100% of uncontaminated packaging can be salvaged or recycled, so you’re going to score a lot of your LEED points here.

Paper, cardboard, boxes, plastic, and wood crates should all be recycled as long as they haven’t been contaminated. Even plastic sheet and film can be part of your construction waste management recycling plan.

LEED says that the purpose of recycling and reducing your construction waste is being more efficient with raw materials and diverting your construction and/or demolition waste from landfills and incinerators.

Construction Waste Management is a Team Effort

Increasingly, though, construction waste management is being seen as an all-hands-on-deck effort that summons governments (local and federal), businesses, and professional organizations to come together for the sake of sustainable building and the environment.

In many ways responsible construction waste management is a public health concern and can safeguard the environment.

Choosing recycled materials and minimizing packaging, reusing old windows and doors, and recycling non-hazardous materials is the way to go. For construction waste management, contact Junk King.

E-waste – Electronics Recycling The Solution

E-waste disposal is becoming more and more important and the environment’ state really is dependent upon how we treat this matter. What do you do with that old computer, monitor, or tablet once that device has reached its expiration date – i.e., when the next iPhone comes out? Well, as we’re all well aware, electronics get updated and upgraded all the time, and sometimes our favorite devices stop working, get viruses or plain get dropped on the ground (it happens).

E-waste and Electronics Recycling E-waste-Electronics-Recycling-The-Solution-Junk-King-Sanoma-CA

If any of these things occur to your electronics, then they’ve effectively gone from a usable gizmo to electronic waste. Also called e-waste, electronic waste is a catch-all term for all of the electronics devices that get sent to landfills, repurposed, donated or recycled back into circulation each and every year. Whole genres of devices actually get sent out to pasture as new technologies come along – think about PDAs, fax machines, VCRs, and pagers.

It’s important that a greater share of this collective e-waste gets recycled and put back into circulation – in one form or another. Recycling e-waste is actually critical right now for two reasons – the sheer volume of electronic waste that’s out there right now that doesn’t get recycled and, secondly, the fact that electronic waste contains heavy metals that can threaten the water and air that we all enjoy.

  • How Much E-waste are We Talking?

Can you guess how much we in the United States collectively generate in terms of e-waste? Hands on buzzers: More than three million tons of e-waste is generated annually and, unfortunately, less than a half-million tons of that e-waste was properly recycled. Nearly two billion dollars is spent by Americans on consumer electronics every year with high tech turnover as the main culprit behind (literally) tons of e-waste.

  • Where Recycling Comes In

Because of all these dangers California went ahead and ratified into law the Electronic Waste Recycling Act back in 2003. This law basically disincentivizes the sale of dangerous products like outmoded cathode-ray tube monitors that contain heavy metals. The Electronic Waste Recycling Act also makes it easier for California businesses and homeowners to recycle things like bulky fax machines and obsolete desktop computers and make way for newer, safer technologies.

How to Recycle Your E-waste 

Even though the average American household has two dozen electronics gadgets within its four walls, that’s not a reason to despair. If you have an old Smartphone collecting dust, then there’s a good chance you can hook up with your manufacturer’s recycling program to get those parts back in circulation.

The biggest tech giants going in America – folks like Apple, Samsung, LG and Canon – all have their own e-waste recycling programs to ensure that you and the company can live up to the Environmental Protection Agency’s motto of reduce, reuse and recycle.

The cool thing is that it doesn’t cost you anything to do the right thing by the environment and – an added benefit – get those obsolete electronics off of your hands. Most Best Buy stores actually have recycling programs, and their tagline is that they’ll take just about any electronics device irrespective of where you bought the device or how old it happens to be. As the most sprawling e-waste recycling hub in the United States, Best Buy has recycled over one billion pounds of use computers, TVs, Smartphones, cameras, and audio appliances.

Electronics manufacturers have even teamed up with the EPA by heeding the Sustainable Materials Management Electronics Challenge to ultimately get more electronics to a certified electronics recycler. The end goal is reaching 100% participation and leaving this world just a little better than we left it. To have your e-waste safely disposed, team up with Junk King.

Electronics Disposal – How to Get Rid of Your Used Devices in California

When it comes to electronics disposal, there is plenty of confusion. The average person seems to have no idea as to how he should properly dispose of his old or malfunctioning electronics. This lack of knowledge is causing irreparable harm to our environment. You can do our planet an enormous favor by printing out this article and passing it on to your friends and family.

Electronics Should NOT be Disposed of With the Normal Garbage Your old TV, computer monitor, video game console, printer or other electronic device should never be haphazardly tossed into your regular trash bins. Attempting to dispose of electronics in this manner is actually illegal in the state of California. If someone spots you attempting to trash any type of electronic device in this manner, they might report you to the authorities.

Can someone else obtain utility out of the Electronic Device? Before attempting to figure out how How-to-Dispose-of-Used-Electronics-in-California-Junk-King-Sonoma-CAto legally dispose of an electronic device you should consider whether another person might benefit from using it. If there is any chance that an impoverished person, student or organization can obtain any utility whatsoever out of the electronic device, donate it or sell it. Finding a new owner for the device will improve another person’s life while simultaneously reducing the burden placed on electronic recycling/re-use hubs. Even if the device is malfunctioning, there still might be a way to remedy the problem.

Recycling Centers Will Take Your Electronic Devices Nowadays, Californians do not dump electronic devices in landfills. Rather, we take them to organizations that recycle/recover undesired electronic devices. We at Junk King work with organizations that are actually qualified to recycle electronics. If the organization is not a participant in the Covered Electronic Waste Recovery and Recycling Program that was established by the state’s Electronic Waste Recycling Act of 2003, they might not have the means to properly dispose/recycle the device.

When in doubt, reach out to the junk hauling experts here at Junk King. We take each and every undesired item to our recycling hubs for a thorough utility and recycling assessment. Our junk hauling experts will drive our big red truck on out to your home or office and pick up just about any piece of junk you want to get rid of. Big Box Electronic Stores can Help There are a number of “big box” electronics outlets like Best Buy that will take in old computer accessories such as printers and monitors. These monolithic corporations have ample personnel and technological resources available to recycle aged or broken electronic devices in the proper manner. Even public libraries have stepped up to the plate by accepting empty ink toner cartridges from printers. When in doubt, refer to your local community services offices for more information regarding where you can drop off undesired electronics.

A caveat about used electronics disposal, be sure to erase all personal information stored on electronic devices before dropping them off at a recycling hub or other destination. Modern day electronics are “smart”, meaning they will store your private data unless you take the initiative to remove such sensitive information from the machine.

Rent a Dumpster for Spring Cleaning

With the spring season just kicking off and Easter now in the rear-view mirror, millions of people are taking to their attics, basements, crawlspaces and garages to do a bit of spring cleaning.

Just the act of cleaning and clearing away can be very liberating, and cutting down on the amount of clutter in your home office has been tied to higher productivity as well.

So, if you’re looking to be a little happier and less stressed this season, organizing your personal space is a great place to start: A clearer environment more often than not means a clear, more productive state of mind.

Dumpster Rentals and Spring Cleaning 

A lot of homeowners are probably reading this and thinking, “that’s all wonderful but what should I do about bulky waste like dressers and mattresses and large appliances like refrigerators, fax machines and huge speakers?”.

Rent-a-Dumpster-for-Spring-Cleaning-Junk-king-sonoma-caSure, you’d like to get rid of some of this stuff and cut down on the amount of clutter in your living room and home office. Certain jobs, though, can feel like they’d take a herculean effort even to start and it tires us out just to think about the arduous work ahead.

  • Rent Out a Dumpster for the Day!

It’s often said that necessity is the mother of invention, and whoever thought up the idea of renting out a dumpster for a one-time use was really onto something.

All you have to do is set up an appointment, wait for the dumpster to arrive and have your yard waste, bulky waste and larger electronics and appliances hauled off you property. It’s really that simple and it can make all the difference in the world to your spring cleaning efforts.

You can even have Junk King’s employees take away things like mattresses and old furniture that you’re dying to get rid of. This can save you the hassle of hiring movers or awkwardly soliciting your friends and neighbors to all band together and help lighten your home of no-longer-used furniture, appliances and electronics.

Especially if your municipal trash pickup won’t come in time or if you’ve already used up your bulky waste pickup date for the year, renting out a dumpster can save you the time, expense and hassle of endlessly searching for ways to deal with your spring cleaning refuse.

Be Environmentally Responsible and Feel Good 

Responsibly disposing all the clutter that goes along with your spring cleaning means that you’re doing good by the environment and making yourself feel good at the same time. How’s that?

Well, there are still people out there who think that their external home environment and their own internal emotional state are unrelated. That’s clearly not the case, though, since when pressure and stress start to build up we often lack the time and resources to look after our environment and, on the flip side, a dirty home office can make clear focus that much more difficult to grasp.

Just the act of spring cleaning and clearing out items that we no longer use can itself be a fulfilling act. We actually feel more energized throwing away dusty, outdated furniture as well as electronics that no longer work and, ahem, underused office supplies and papers. In fact, we might actually breathe easier by getting rid of mold in our homes from things like broken down air conditioners and derelict refrigerators.

This all goes to show that clearing out some of the things that we no longer use can have real benefits to our productivity and make us feel more energized and less stressed throughout the spring season ahead!

Chemical Waste Management

Chemical waste management is critical if we are to protect the environment. Chemical waste is, simply put, waste that comes from harmful chemicals. These chemicals, if not disposed of in the proper way, could harm your health, your community’s health and the health of the environment.

Chemical Waste and Hazardous Waste

Most chemical waste is actually considered hazardous waste by the Environmental Protection How-to-Dispose-of-Chemical-Waste-Junk-King-Sonoma-CAAgency (EPA) here in the United States.

Both chemical waste and hazardous waste are regulated by the EPA’s Clean Water Act and the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act designed to protect human health and keep our environment free of harmful pollutants.

You can actually think of hazardous waste as a more potentially serious form of chemical waste in that hazardous waste is a solid, gaseous or liquid material deemed hazardous because of its reactivity, toxicity, ignitability and corrosivity.

These are things like industrial pesticides, diesel fuels, corrosive paints and harmful chemical solvents that if not disposed of properly could wreak some serious harm.

http://www3.epa.gov/epawaste/hazard/

Disposing of Chemical Waste 

Chemical waste is produced by industries around-the-clock and it’s actually a byproduct of the process that creates many of the appliance and conveniences of 21st-century life.

While these things are still dangerous, there’s a way to dispose of them safely so that consumers can reap the benefits of these products and companies can comply with the EPA’s guidelines.

  • Three Classes of Chemical Waste

All three kinds of chemical waste can be disposed of via chemical waste containers, yet before knowing which container each one goes into you need to know what kind of waste you’re dealing with.

The first kind of chemical waste is what’s known as general chemical waste, and this can be handled by your local chemical waste treatment facility. The second kind of chemical waste is known as highly reactive chemical waste, which can also be handled by the same chemical waste treatment facility that handled your general chemical waste.

And the third kind of chemical waste is what’s known as chemically contaminated solid waste. This includes things like disposal lab-ware or tissue papers and towels soaked with chemical solvents. Oil-soaked rags and products containing mercury are other examples of chemically contaminated solid waste.

  • Treatment, Storage and Disposal (TSD)

The Environmental Protection Agency has strict rules that factories need to follow in terms of how chemical waste is treated, stored and responsibly disposed of.

The treatment and disposal part of TSD refers to the fact that chemical waste can alter its shape or chemical composition in a way that could threaten human health or jeopardize environmental safety even after that chemical waste is put inside a chemical waste container. Because of things like vapor expansion some chemical waste can spill or overrun the chemical waste container itself.

To counteract that possibility, chemical waste containers should typically be filled to about three-quarters capacity so that vapor expansion or transportation of the chemical waste container doesn’t cause problems like spilling, leaking or chemical reactivity.

Chemical waste must also be stored in a safe way before its processed, recycled or disposed of at a chemical waste treatment facility. The chemical waste treatment facility will probably also require that you list the class of chemical waste in the chemical waste container – from the three classes above – as well as itemize a content list of everything inside the chemical waste container itself.

In terms of storage, chemical waste containers should be appropriately sturdy, leakproof, properly labeled and stored safely to forestall any problems. Screw tops with secure lids might be required for liquid chemical waste as well. California’s Toxic Substances Control department provides info on treatment storage and disposal facilities, found here.

What to Do With Old Computers

Lots of people ask what to do with old computers because they’re hard to get rid of. Other than the fact that nobody seems to want an old computer, figuring out what to do with old computers is more complicated because of all the harmful chemicals a computer has in it. When you want to get rid of an old PC or laptop, you’ve got to be careful who you trust.

Computers Get Old Quickly

One of the major reasons why what to do with old computers is such a big deal is because computers get old at a ridiculously fast pace. No matter how much you paid for your computer, it seems like by the time you get it to your car it’s an 8-track tape player with the greatest hits of 1975 stuck inside. If you’ve never heard of Moore’s Law, it basically says that computer speed and storage capacity will double every 5 years or less. This has been the case for about 80 years, and it’s showing no signs of slowing. Most people don’t even use half their hard drive before enough other things on their computer fail that keeping it around isn’t worth the hardship. Thus, what to do with old computers isn’t something to think about years from now, like you can with a house or a car. Your computer may fail only a year or two after you buy it new.

What to Do With Old Computers

Fix or Replace? Replace!

If computers were like most things, you could keep them for years and just work on them yourself or have “a guy” who fixes them every so often. Unfortunately, that’s just not the case. By the time you even find a repair shop, you’ve already lost precious time you could spend being productive — or watching cat videos, it’s all you. What to do with old computers isn’t an academic question after about a year — when you can pay someone a bunch of money to keep your computer running for awhile or just toss it and get a new one, asking what to do with old computers becomes a “no duh” kind of answer. You get rid of them, but there are issues with just putting them out at the curb.

Hurting the Environment Isn’t Cool

Some folks think you can just drop your computer in the trash can and call it a day. But just like everything technology-related, what to do with old computers has a more complicated answer than that. When you think about what to do with old computers, you have to remember that your parents were right — what’s inside really does count. Only, instead of being full of love, computers have things like lead, mercury and other nasty things that’ll hurt the environment. Unless you want hourly visits from a crying little bunny over ruining his habitat, you have to decide what to do with old computers using a little more sense than, “Just toss it.” Namely, you need to enlist the help of someone who disposes of computers in an environmentally friendly manner.

Not Being Green Can Even Be Illegal

Believe it or not, polluting is actually illegal most places. If you get caught, which eventually happens when you have to decide what to do with old computers on a regular basis, you could face some stiff fines. Beyond that, you may be forced to stop doing business if the government isn’t interested in your trashy ways. So when you consider what to do with old computers, contract with a service that will follow the laws and make the environment a little bit cleaner.

How Commercial Waste Disposal and Recycling Helps the Environment

How Commercial Waste Disposal and Recycling Helps the Environment Junk-King Sonoma CAThe manufacturing, wholesale and energy-creation sectors are vital to the growth and long-term sustainability of our economy. You and I depend on manufacturing services for the goods we enjoy on a daily basis and the energy sector provides the lifeblood that powers our lives.

Handling Commercial Waste 

One downside to all of these benefits, though, is commercial waste. Simply enough, commercial waste is defined as waste produced as a byproduct of doing business. On a small scale commercial waste could be wrappers related to a catering services in the hospitality industry or obsolete electronics at a retail store.

People often contrast industrial waste with the domestic waste in our homes. Essentially industrial waste is related to business and domestic waste is related to what we use as we go about our lives. The problem is that industrial, commercial waste can damage the environment if left unattended even though most of that waste is produced in the effort to make our lives easier.

Solution? Responsible Industrial Waste Disposal 

Through a combination of waste pickup and dumpsters placed around your place of business, commercial waste disposal can be dramatically lessened. This is not only better for business – commercial waste disposal is better for the environment, results in more EPA compliance and does a service to the community.

A junk removal service like Junk King-Sonoma makes eco-friendly junk removal a priority for local businesses and the communities that those businesses serve. Whether you need a dumpster placed outside of your construction site or pickup of your commercial waste as a retailer or manager in the hospitality industry, we have the professionalism, experience and know-how to get the job done.

Can Commercial Waste be Recycled? 

Many local business owners and eco-responsible employees want to do even better by the environment and learn more about recycling their commercial waste. Fortunately, you can safely have your commercial waste recycled, which is doubly good for the environment since the commercial waste neither pollutes the environment nor becomes a one-and-done product never to be seen again.

Recycling your commercial waste also makes a ton of sense from a business perspective since going the recycling route streamlines your business and allows you to seamlessly meet regulatory waste compliance benchmarks set by the EPA and local governments.

Improve Your Division Rate Today 

In short, you’re improving the overall efficiency of your business, doing a whole lot of good for the environment and bolstering your diversion rate. For readers who might not be aware of what a diversion rate is: A diversion rate is simply the total amount of commercial waste that you’ve diverted from the landfill to a recycling program.

That’s actually one more benefit to recycling your commercial waste – you can automate the process of recycling pickup in the same way in which you automate other aspects of your business. Recycling no longer needs to be drudgery or inefficient. The process of helping the environment has definitely been streamlined.

Although commercial waste often calls to mind the mental image of industrial waste in the medical, energy or manufacturing industries, commercial waste is also a reality in retail stores and shops you go to every day. Electronics need to be disposed of, and possibly recycled, with the same high standards as waste from the manufacturing and energy sectors.

Contact Junk King-Sonoma

The pros at Junk King-Sonoma can make recycling your commercial waste easy, reliable and efficient. This means that you can do good by the environment, hit your waste disposal compliance benchmarks and streamline your business even further.
