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.

Recycle Electronics in California

Did you know that in California it’s illegal to throw away your old electronics such as TVs with LCD screens, computers, monitors, batteries, and more? State laws require residents and businesses to keep these devices out of landfills.

When you recycle electronics instead of tossing them in the trash you help keep people, animals, and the environment cleaner and safer. Junk King of Sonoma has experience in disposing of and recycling electronics in compliance with California’s e-waste program.

What is California’s Electronic Waste Program?

Hand placing mobile device in Ewaste canCalifornia collects a recycling fee at the time of purchase on a number of products that are considered hazardous if discarded in landfills. Along with those mentioned above, the list includes portable DVD players with LCD screens, cathode ray tubes (CRTs) and any device containing them, as well as TVs with plasma screens or CRTs.

Since CRTs have mostly been replaced by LCD and LED technology, in 2016 California AB 1419 was signed into law and requires the recycling of panel glass from monitors and televisions.

How to Recycle Electronics

California leads the way in mandating residents and businesses recycle electronics. Today, at least half the e-waste that once ended up in landfills or was illegally shipped overseas is now reused or recycled!

There are basically two ways to recycle electronics: take them to a hazardous waste facility yourself or have an e-waste disposal expert like Junk King of Sonoma handle it for you.

Do’s and Don’ts of Computer Disposal for Sonoma County Businesses

Does your business know the latest rules and regulations for computer disposal in Sonoma? Sonoma’s Zero Waste program identifies computer equipment as an e-waste. That means your business must meet certain disposal guidelines which prohibit discarding computers in trash cans or dumpsters.

Why Donate Computers

Pile of Old ComputersExperts agree that most businesses should replace their computer hardware every three to five years. A report by the EPA found that around 150,000 computers are disposed of each day either by trashing them in landfills or recycling them. One option is obviously better than the other and here’s why.

Computer recycling efforts promote the best reuse of computers and other electronic equipment, keeping them out of landfills and often finding them second homes through charitable organizations and community programs. The benefits to donating and recycling are impressive:

  • Recycling one million laptops saves enough energy to run over 3500 U.S. homes per year.
  • Keeping computers out of landfills can create nearly 300 more jobs annually.

It also helps protect people, animals, and the water supply by keeping excessive amounts of lead out of the environment, preventing serious harm to vital body organs and nervous systems.

Proper Business Computer Disposal in Sonoma

Sonoma County’s recycling laws are focused on eliminating landfill disposal of electronics and other “universal waste” that contains lead, copper, mercury, and cadmium. When you donate your business’ computers, you’re literally doing a world of good, protecting the environment and the planet.

But which computers are worth recycling for their parts, and which should be donated for re-use? If yours is like a lot of businesses, you probably have a storage closet or spare room filled with outdated computers that you’re not sure what to do with.

We understand—you have a business to run. So do we! Junk King of Sonoma will pick up and donate all your discarded electronics, including computers, so you don’t have to stress over what to do with them. Plus, you get to feel good about doing your part for those in need and the world at large.

Everything You Need to Know About California’s E-waste Recyling Laws

Improper disposal of electronic waste can create serious risks to people, animals, and the environment. Junk King of Sonoma offers safe and secure e waste recycling, removal, and disposal services to make sure you comply with California’s environmental laws.

What is E-waste?

computer cords and motherboardIn California, E-waste refers to any unwanted electronic device or CRT (cathode ray tube) which is classified as “universal waste.” It frequently contains hazardous materials like lead and mercury, and is produced by businesses, households, industries, and governments. As LCD and LED technology for TVs and monitors has for the most part replaced CRTs, the state has enacted AB 1419 for CRT panel glass recycling, an initiative that allows scrap panel glass to be reused in many new products.

E waste Recycling Laws in California

Thanks in large part to SB 20, or the Electronic Waste Recycling Act, California remains the only state that has successfully reined in the illegal disposal of toxic electronics such as TVs, laptops, and computer monitors. Today, half of the e waste that once found its way to landfills or was illegally shipped overseas will be recycled or reused.

There are a number of reporting requirements e waste recycling providers must meet and they must manage e waste in compliance with the Department of Toxic Substances Control’s waste regulations. They are also required to comply with recordkeeping and treatment standards as dictated by state law.

As the electronic waste stream becomes more complex e waste disposal has gotten more complicated, too. The Future of Electronic Waste Management in California project was adopted in 2018 and recommends ways to get the most out of the state’s e waste recycling program.

Junk King of Sonoma is Your E waste Disposal Partner

Globally, the U.S. produces the most e waste per person and California’s leadership in e waste recycling is helping to set in motion national recycling policies. Junk King of Sonoma is proud to contribute to this effort.

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.

What Type of Computers Qualify for Electronic Disposal

Junk King is ready to take almost any kind of old computer and computer accessory away for proper electronic disposal. Computers from all brands and of all ages are eligible, so there’s no need to worry about something being too old or in too poor of condition. We’ll even take individual components keyboards, LED screens, printers, external hard drives, RAM, optical drives and video cards. You can trust us to take your old computer parts and make sure they are disposed of in a safe and responsible manner.

How Junk King Makes E-Waste Easy

We know the temptation to simply throw all your old computers in the garbage is strong, but with Junk King, we make everything really easy. There’s no need to worry about sorting your computer parts or worrying about whether or not items will go to the right place. Our computer disposal experts will make sure useable items go to people who need them while recyclables get processed in a responsible, eco-friendly manner. All you have to do is contact us to schedule a pickup and we’ll handle every other aspect of your computer disposal.

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.

How Junk King of Sonoma Can Help

Junk King of Sonoma has from the start been committed to providing the area’s best green junk removal service. We understand that busy people like you may find it easier to dump your e waste rather than search for a location to donate it.

Our crews offer quick and easy pickup of your e waste anywhere in the greater Sonoma area. We recycle and donate cell phones along with other electronics like computers, monitors, televisions, printers, and more.

Appliance Disposal – Some Important Facts to Consider

When it comes to moving heavy appliances, it is better to leave the work to the experienced haulers. It takes more than muscle to lift these massive appliances; in-depth strategy is also necessary. In some cases, moving equipment is required to ensure a safe haul. If you are thinking about getting rid of an appliance of any sort, do not attempt a DIY (do it yourself) removal project. You run the risk of damaging your home or even hurting yourself when attempting to move an appliance. It is better to let the experienced junk haulers at Junk King do the work.

Appliance Disposal You can Feel Good About

Appliance Disposal Junk King refuses to haul appliances directly to the scrap heap. If the appliance is still working or can be repaired, it might be possible to donate it. Furthermore, parts of the appliance might be recyclable. Let Junk King haul away your appliances and other unwanted items and you will rest easy knowing the greenest junk specialists in the country are exhausting every avenue for re-purposing and recycling. In fact, many of our junk hauling trucks operate on bio diesel made from environmentally-friendly petroleum and other renewable resources. This is appliance disposal you can feel good about!

The Challenge of Removing Appliances

If you are intimidated by the prospect of moving a large appliance, your thinking is justified. Moving an appliance any more than a couple feet takes considerable effort. Even if you have a friend or family member to help, moving the appliance might prove extraordinarily difficult. In fact, moving a large or heavy appliance out of the room might prove impossible. Do the smart thing by contacting Junk King for prompt appliance removal. This way, you won’t have to worry about hurting yourself, damaging your home or finding a place to drop off a massive appliance. Our junk haulers will do all the work on your behalf.

Let the Experienced Haulers Transport Your Appliance

Though it might be tempting to haul an appliance on your own, especially if you own a truck, this type of project is best left to those with experience. As an example, refrigerators and freezers pose a threat in the form of refrigerants that can harm the environment and lead to a significant fine. Other items feature display panels and microprocessors loaded with hazardous and toxic materials. Even a small amount of such toxic material can compromise the integrity of our water and land. The bottom line is only the experienced junk haulers who understand all of the risks associated with transporting an appliance should tackle a project of this magnitude.

Appliance Disposal Done Right is Beneficial to all Parties

Everyone can win if you decide to let the experienced junk haulers haul away your appliances. Plan ahead for your appliance haul, lean on the experts to do the work and this careful removal really will prove mutually beneficial to you, future generations and the environment. When appliances are disposed of in the proper manner, their metals decompose, leak into the soil and cause iron and lead to contaminate our groundwater.

As another example, consider the improper removal of air conditioners that leak Freon into the atmosphere. Freon damages the ozone layer. The proper removal and recycling of air conditioners and other appliances with such chemicals protects the atmosphere as well as our planet.

Contact Junk King for Your Appliance Haul

If you have one or several appliances you would like to get rid of, let us handle the job. Give Junk King a call at (707) 744-4254 or online to schedule your haul.

How to Handle Disposal of Your Household Hazardous Waste

Everyone has them, those mystery cans, bottles, and containers that hold expired cleaning products or other substances that might or might not be household hazardous waste.

At Junk King of Marin, we haul away all kinds of junk except for hazardous waste. But we do know how important it is to keep your home and the earth’s environment safe from waste risks. And with a little education we can all join together to practice safe household hazardous waste disposal.

Read on for some of our top tips to do just that.

What is Hazardous Waste?

Household Hazardous Waste The broad term “household hazardous waste” actually applies to any home or retail-generated hazardous waste. It covers a wide array of products that have the potential to harm the environment if not disposed of properly. This can include things like automotive care products, oil and latex paints, drain cleaners, antifreeze, and other household chemicals.

Proper Storage of Household Hazardous Waste

First, always keep hazardous materials in their original containers. Be sure to store them out of the reach of children and animals and away from food. If you place a hazardous material in another container, make sure it’s clearly labeled, and never store it in empty food or beverage containers. Keep the containers dry to prevent corrosion and store chemical products in a well-ventilated area. To be safe, keep any suspected household hazardous waste away from heat, flames, or other sources of ignition .

Finally, never combine dangerous household hazardous waste with other products .

Read the Label

The EPA considers any leftover household product that can catch fire, explode, or react under certain circumstances as household hazardous waste. Since many of these products contain hazardous ingredients, they require special care when disposing of them. Always follow labeled storage and disposal instructions to avoid personal injury and environmental harm.

And remember, even empty containers of hazardous waste can pose risks due to the residual chemicals that might remain. Always handle with care!

Reduce Household Hazardous Waste

One of the best ways to avoid the risk of contamination is to purchase fewer products that contain hazardous ingredients. The EPA’s Safer Choice Program has some great ideas to get you started.

Hazardous Waste Disposal Questions

Marin County has a zero waste program that helps you properly dispose of your home’s hazardous waste. Your community may also have separate rules and regulations, including how to handle proper disposal of items like batteries and fluorescent tubes, so be sure to check with your local environmental waste agency for the latest disposal information.

At Junk King of Marin, we believe working together on the safe disposal of hazardous waste helps our customers achieve a healthy home, community, and environment.

We also know it’s not always easy figuring out which products can be disposed of in your regular trash and what is considered hazardous. If you suspect you have hazardous chemicals and other materials in your Marin County home, let us help you decide your best disposal options. We’re here to help with:

  • Dedicated customer service.
  • Easy online booking.
  • Identification of hazardous materials.

Keep the Water and Land Clean with Responsible E-waste Disposal

You probably think that it would be a bad idea to throw away $60 million in gold and silver every year, right? Well, that’s how much gold and silver is literally thrown away by Americans annually in the form of electronic waste.

About half of Americans (44%) say that they update their cell phones as soon as the new version comes out, which for most cell phone companies is about every two years.

These old cell phones contain precious metals like gold and silver that get discarded. Responsible disposal of electronic waste is about more than recovering precious metals, however. Responsible e-waste disposal matters in terms of keeping local water and soil clean and toxic waste out of landfills.

Here’s a statistic that brings it all home: electronic waste in the form of old cell phones, computer monitors, and televisions is only 2% of the trash in landfills, but a whopping 70% of the toxic waste in local landfills. That’s a serious problem.

The Solution? Junk King’s E-waste Disposal Services 

E-waste Disposal Less than 15% of e-waste is currently recycled the right way. Whether you’re a business with leftover computer monitors or homeowner with an old printer or two, Junk King is committed to hauling your electronic waste away and responsibly recycling what can be cleaned up and reused.

Junk King Marin tries to embody many of the same principles as CalRecycle’s Electronic Waste Management programs.

California created the Electronic Waste Recycling Act of 2003 and the Covered Electronic Waste (CEW) recycling program in order to summon the resources and infrastructure to handle millions of tons of electronic waste.

In total, these initiatives have already generated over two billion pounds (more than 1 million tons) worth of recovered electronic waste.

What Junk King Takes 

Junk King takes all kinds of electronic waste: copy machines, shredders, computer monitors, old laptops and desktops, televisions, and cell phones.

Although these kinds of devices can contain precious metals like gold and silver and other semi-precious metals like palladium, they can also contain toxic substances.

Two such substances – cadmium and lead – can harm local ecosystems and pose a significant threat to public health if not disposed of responsibly.

Fortunately, e-waste disposal is getting better in the United States since nearly half of computers are recycled. More statewide investment and popular awareness of the importance of recycling has meant more folks calling on Junk King for responsible e-waste disposal.

Repair, Donate, or Recycle 

When it comes to e-waste disposal, though, you actually have three basic options: repair, donate, or recycle.

Having Junk King haul away your electronic waste is the best option, and clearly better than ensuring it winds up at a landfill by throwing it in the trash, if you can’t repair or donate it.

Sometimes the technology in your old cell phone is completely outdated and you need an upgrade right away. In that case, why not use a service like the partnership between goodwill and Dell, Dell Reconnect, to lend new life to your old electronic devices?

Verizon goes one step further by offering you the option of recycling your old tablets and cell phones. And believe it or not, the Make-A-Wish Foundation even has its own program to get your gently used, though no longer needed or wanted, electronic devices (computers, MP3 players, etc.) into the hands of kids recovering from treatment.

Responsible e-waste disposal helps keep local water systems and land clean of toxic substances, conserves natural resources, and might even help prevent climate change.

Contact Junk King, America’s greenest junk removal service, to have your old devices responsibly hauled away and recycled.
