Is It Time to Recycle Your Appliance?

Appliance Recycling At Junk King, we’re ready to help you recycle your old appliance in a safe and responsible manner, but how do you know when it’s time to get rid of your appliance? The right time for appliance recycling depends on many different factors that are different for each type of appliance. Whether your appliance needs frequent repairs or you’re just ready for the latest and greatest model, we’ll save you time and energy by doing all the heavy lifting and transport. Here are some of the appliances that we recycle at Junk King Sonoma:

  • Air Conditioners – Old, inefficient air conditioners can waste a lot of electricity, so you may want to replace yours if it’s more than 20 years old. We can either help you donate your AC unit or make sure the parts, including the compressor, condenser coils, and electronic components, get reused or recycled for their raw materials.
  • Dishwashers – Dishes that don’t get clean, leaking, and loud noises are just some of the signs that it might be time to recycle your dishwasher. If you just want to upgrade your existing dishwasher for a newer and fancier model, we can help you donate the old one to someone that needs it.
  • Refrigeration Units – Both refrigerators and freezers may be ready to recycle if they are no longer able to hold the right temperature in an efficient manner. Many of the parts and materials may be appropriate for reuse, and we’ll dispose of the waste material, including any ozone-depleting substances, appropriately.
  • Lawnmowers – Some high-quality mowers are designed to last a lifetime, but others only last a few years or a decade. If your lawnmower doesn’t cut the way it used to or is no longer reliable, we’ll recycle it for you.
  • Stoves and Ovens – The most common reason our customers want to recycle their stoves and ovens is for a kitchen remodeling project. In many cases, we can help your stove and oven find a new home so that you can make an upgrade. We know these are very bulky and heavy appliances, and we can do the hard work for you.
  • Microwaves – Non-working microwaves are considered electronic waste which we can take care of for you. If you’re replacing a working unit, we’ll take your microwave and donate to someone who needs it.
  • Water Heaters – Whether your water heater can no longer keep up with the demands of your growing family or has stopped working altogether, it may be time for appliance recycling. These units can be big and bulky and unsuitable for the dumpster, but we can take it.
  • Washing Machines and Dryers – Large advancements have been made in the efficiency of washers and dryers, so you may want to recycle your old units even if they still work. We can also help you recycle your washer or dryer if it’s leaking, noisy, constantly in need of repairs, or completely broken.

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.

The Accidental Sofa Collection: Sofa Removal to the Rescue

Does your basement have an “interesting” array of seating options? Have mismatched old sofas made their way into spare bedrooms and guest quarters?

When it comes to outdated furniture, people tend to be surprisingly good about giving it the heave-ho. But there’s something about sofas and other large pieces that they never seem to leave the house. For one thing, they’re awkward and for another, they’re heavy. And it can be confusing figuring out how to dispose of them.

As far as we’re concerned, large sofa removal and mattress disposal are two of the bulky item jobs you should leave to the pros.

Fast & Easy Furniture Removal in Sonoma

If you have one, two, three, or more old sofas or large recliners ready for removal, it isn’t always as easy as hauling them own to the front curb. You’ll need to schedule an appointment and, depending on where you live, you may have to pay for subsequent pickups. Sonoma follows the Zero Waste initiative, but keep in mind they do not offer donation services. You’ll have to make those arrangements yourself. And many charity organizations do not accept sofas.

An Eco-Friendly Way to Handle Sofa Removal in Sonoma

Sofa Removal However many old couches you need removed, a professional sofa removal service is your most convenient solution. At Junk King of Sonoma, we take all size sofas no matter what condition they’re in. We also remove other household furniture such as:

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.

Yard Waste Removal Causing You Headaches? Call Junk King!

Crossing all of that yard work off of your list sure feels good. But what do you do now that you have a half-dozen garbage bins full of yard waste and need yard waste removal pronto? Does your local municipality even pick that kind of stuff up?

The Problem with Local Pickup 

Yard Waste RemovalThe truth is that many municipalities put limits on how much yard waste they’ll pick up, and yard waste itself can surprisingly cause a lot of issues for the environment when disposed of improperly.

The Sierra Club found that improperly disposed of yard waste can cause leachate and methane gas to escape into the atmosphere or seep into the soil and do damage there as well. None of that is too hot for the environment.

Fortunately, Junk King is committed to turning yard waste into manufactured topsoil and compost whenever and wherever possible. Considering that an estimated quarter-billion tons of municipal solid waste is generated every year in the United States that’s very reassuring.

The thing that might catch some people by surprise is that two-thirds of that quarter-billion tons of municipal solid waste is what’s known as organic waste, which is another name for yard waste or green waste.

Yard Waste Removal: Does Junk King Take? 

The green waste and composting experts say that by weight grass is easily the biggest share of yard waste removal.

It also turns out that leaves are the biggest share of yard waste removal when you measure things by volume. Anyone who’s tried to stomp down leaves into one of those flimsy black plastic bags knows this to be the case.

The truth is that yard waste is composed of a whole lot of things – grass, leaves, brush, soil, and landscaping debris. Junk King takes all of that stuff plus stumps, fencing, firewood, lumber, and old window frames.

Since Junk King takes just about every kind of yard waste imaginable, you can even have your shed demolished, broken down, and taken off your hands. Junk King recycles, reuses, and donates wherever possible to give new life to no-longer-needed or discarded stuff.

With an old shed, for instance, it might be the case that components like the shed’s wood, plastic, frames, and plasterboard can be put to another use down the road. That’s a lot better than this stuff winding up in a landfill, which would likely be the final destination for yard waste if it goes through municipal pickup.

Go with Junk King for Responsible Disposal 

Junk King is America’s greenest junk removal service because of its commitment to reduce, reuse, and recycle wherever possible.

For yard waste in Sonoma, you might find Junk King’s online pricing tool especially helpful because it lets you get a feel for how much a job will cost before scheduling your appointment.

Unlike something like a foreclosure cleanout, you can usually size up yard waste pretty quickly and get an idea of how much truck space you’ll need going forward. On that note, know that you can always text Junk King a photo of your yard waste at (737) 888-5865 to get things squared away sooner.

The most accurate way to get an estimate for your upcoming yard waste removal, though, is with no-obligation, on-site pricing.

That’s where a Junk King staff member comes out to your home or business and determines how much the job will cost and what kind of tools and manpower will be required to get it done. Other ways to stay in touch are through calling Junk King at (888) 888 – JUNK (5865) or contacting us online. Yard waste removal has never been easier.

Hoarder Help: Simple Steps for Cleaning and Clearing a Hoarder’s House

If you have hoarding tendencies or your loved one is affected by this problem, it might be challenging to clean up and organize the house. In general, hoarding causes people to have difficulties throwing anything away. Consequently, the house will be filled with useless items and cluttered with insurmountable messes. Under ideal circumstances, it is advisable to consult a cleaning and junk hauling service for hoarder help. However, you can also tackle the problem using a hands-on approach if you have time. Here are practical steps to help you clean and clear a hoarder’s house.

Establish a Sorting Plan

Hoarder HelpIt is important to establish criteria for sorting out the items in the house when providing hoarder help. Hoarding often leads to the retention of damaged, useless and unnecessary appliances, clothes, tools, mail and other similar materials. If the unusable items  are not eliminated, it will be difficult to clean and clear the home. An ideal sorting plan should help the people helping know how to identify junk. For instance, inoperable old appliances and old mail can be considered trash while items used on a regular basis can be protected.

Acquire Protective Gear

The process of cleaning a hoarder’s house can be dangerous. More often than not, the rooms will be filled with items, making it difficult to navigate the space. Also, the accumulation of junk makes it difficult to keep the house clean. It is not uncommon for the home to have a lot of dust, pests, mold and mildew. Therefore, when providing hoarder help, it is advisable to acquire appropriate protective gear to avoid injuries. Disposable gloves, safety goggles and a dust mask are essential for preventing contamination from dust and grime. Sturdy work shoes are also useful for keeping the feet safe. In addition, if there is danger of falling objects, you should wear a hard hat.

Stage the Items and Sort

You can begin by emptying out the rooms and placing the items in a chosen staging area once you have donned your protective gear. An ideal staging area would be a free open space in the outdoors where all the hoarder’s items can be temporarily placed. Ensure that the chosen stage does not block exits in case of an emergency. Once the items are in place, you can begin sorting everything according to the criteria determined earlier. Separate junk from useful and salvageable items. When emptying the rooms, it is advisable to begin with the one closest to the door. This will allow for easier navigation when clearing the further rooms. A good waste removal plan is essential when providing hoarder help. All the items determined to be junk will need to be disposed of correctly.

Finally, you can begin decluttering, organizing and cleaning the house. Identify any items which might have been overlooked or brought in after sorting and remove them. Then, organize each room in the best way before cleaning the surfaces of each room thoroughly. Reach out to us for consultation.

Hoarder Help is Finally Here with Junk King

The really interesting thing about hoarding is that people do it for all kinds of different reasons. Some people hoard photo albums, jewelry, old CD cases, and other items that they deem valuable.

Another person might hoard because something fits a perceived need or utility in their lives. The “I might use it one day” syndrome that everyone is probably guilty of to some extend.

The truth is that everyone saves a few sentimental pictures and knickknacks or has a collection of items related to their hobby. That’s perfectly normal. If you play golf, for instance, having a few spare clubs in the closet typically isn’t a problem.

Hoarders tend to save way more than the average person, though, and fill entire rooms with items that they think could come in handy some day (e.g., stacks of magazines).

Hoarding for sentimental and utility reasons are both pretty common. But people also hoard for aesthetic reasons and believe that something is too beautiful to throw out.

A Mountain of Hoarded Stuff? Hoarder Help? Call Junk King 

Hoarder Help Six percent of Americans, or about 19 million people, are actual hoarders, but a lot of people keep things past their prime thinking they’ll need this or that one day. The truth is that old cell phones and phone books from ten years ago are rarely revisited.

If your living spaces are getting too cluttered and affecting your ability to comfortably navigate your own home, then you could probably benefit from taking a hard look around and considering hoarder help.

It turns out that for hoarders the act of hoarding actually relieves anxiety, but it also produces anxiety because now they have more things to worry about. An inability to discard items and collecting useless stuff like junk mail might be signs of hoarding.

  • Junk King will recycle and selectively donate items

Junk King has its own proprietary trucks that are now 20% bigger. And as North America’s greenest junk removal service, Junk King makes an average of eight trips to Junk King’s warehouse hub per day to sort out discarded items for recycling purposes.

Junk King is here to provide hoarder help and keep as many items as possible out of landfills and into the hands of charities, recycling programs, and people who can possibly reuse things like well-maintained furniture and functional electronics like old televisions.

Hoarders frequently pile up outdated magazines and newspapers. Fortunately, a lot of what hoarders hoard is recyclable. Junk King can come to your home, or the home of a loved one, and haul away recyclable paper and plastic items.

Hoarders will even collect things like magazines, phone books, and manuals thinking that those might come in handy one day. Perhaps, but in the meantime they’re likely to clog up the house. Fortunately, paper and plastic items as well as many glass items can be hauled away by Junk King and responsibly recycled.

Junk King is Compassionate, Helpful and Nonjudgmental 

There’s a lot of comfort in knowing that Junk King has helped hoarders before and has garnered thousands of five-star reviews throughout the years. Junk King’s staff is dedicated to only throwing out those items that you’re ready to part ways with.

For millions of hoarders, years of accumulated junk can be embarrassing. Realize that Junk King is here to offer compassionate, nonjudgmental help in carefully removing unwanted items.

If you know that a friend or loved one is suffering from an actual hoarding disorder, then consider having a professional organizer with a specialty in dealing with hoarding disorders present during your appointment with Junk King. Book online here.

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.

Make the Call for Professional Hauling Services: They’ll Bring the Manpower, Truck, and Moving Equipment You’ll Need

Hauling your own junk can come with hidden risks and spiraling costs.When you go with professional hauling services, though, everything from the labor and the truck to offsite removal and processing, gas, and insurance are all worked into the price.

Junk King now has trucks that feature 20% more volume at a lower price and is proud to offer free written estimates that beat comparable written estimates from competing hauling services’ companies.

The most accurate way to get an estimate is with onsite pricing. That said, booking online at Junk King offers you a $20 discount and you can also text or call to get the hauling services you need.

Trust the Experience and Versatility of Professional Junk Haulers 

Hauling ServicesTaking a lawn chair out to the curb is one thing, but what about when you’re trying to get rid of a hot tub in your backyard, king-size mattress, or seven-piece furniture set in your den? What do you do then?

Even if you have the tools to get started, you might need to call around for friends willing to take time off work to come out and help. You might also need to rent a truck and decide where to take it all.

Then there’s the chance that you get injured because you’re trying to haul a couch or mattress down a steep flight of stairs or using a saw to cut away a backyard hot tub. It can happen easier than you think.

  • Moving Injuries Happen All the Time

Thousands of people injure themselves every year moving because they don’t take simple steps to avoid getting injured or because they’ve underestimated how heavy something is.

As any professional junk hauler knows, you want to bend at the knees, avoid twisting, create a wide base with the legs, and actually feel like you’re lifting more with the legs than your back.

By not having the right moving equipment – dollies, sliders, blankets, moving straps, protective gloves, protective eyewear, and steel-toe boots – you risk taking on the most common moving injuries.

Getting your fingers or toes caught between a heavy object and an immovable surface isn’t hard to do if you’re not used to lifting that kind of weight.

So many folks think that they’ll save a few bucks by going it alone and fail to consider how risky moving something heavy is or how much time and resources a given job will take. Don’t take the chance.

Junk King has the manpower and resources to get the job done right the first time.

Professional Hauling Services on Your Schedule 

Getting your own rental truck, shoring up the resources, and finding out how to responsibly dispose of all of your junk can be incredibly time consuming and stressful.

For heavy lifting (furniture, dressers, old televisions, and yard waste), tricky jobs (cutting out and removing a hot tub), or jobs that are frankly intimidating (foreclosure clean outs) you can depend on Junk King’s timely hauling services.

Junk King makes it simple by dropping by at a  time of your choosing and calling 15 minutes before arrival to make sure that you’re ready.

As a full-service hauling services’ company, Junk King also has a big warehouse to take all of your stuff to for sorting. That means that you won’t have to take multiple trips to the landfill, goodwill, recycling center, and/or charity for donations.

Virtually the only hauling services that Junk King doesn’t do involve hazardous waste. Construction and demolition debris, furniture, yard waste, e-waste, and just about everything else is fair game and can make it into the Junk King trucks.

Debris Removal in Sonoma Just Got Easier

Getting your yard in great shape and entertaining guests is one of the best parts of owning your own home. Although it takes a lot of work to get there, regular landscaping and debris removal can get you off on the right foot.

Routine and Seasonal Debris Removal 

Debris Removal Yard waste and debris removal can seem pretty daunting when you’re staring down fallen branches, an old jungle gym or hot tub that doesn’t see much use these days, and hundreds of pounds of waterlogged lumber. Who’s got the time?

The fact is that Junk King can schedule you for weekly, monthly, seasonal, or one-off debris removal projects. Whatever works best for you and your schedule. But sometimes the unexpected strikes: Junk King can help you clean up and remove fallen trees and large branches following a storm as well.

Other kinds of yard and debris removal are more predictable. You can schedule weekly yard waste removal for grass clippings, weeds, and branches after your weekly landscaping or arrange to have your leaves picked up on a seasonal basis.

Junk King is also committed to helping business responsibly dispose of construction waste. The Environmental Protection Agency says that over a half-billion tons of construction and demolition debris is generated in the United States every year.

That’s twice the amount of all of the municipal solid waste generated by millions of homeowners every year in the US. This all underscores how important it is to responsibly dispose of and, where possible, recycle things like concrete, gypsum drywall, asphalt, metals, and salvageable building components like doors and certain hard-to-manufacture plumbing parts.

Junk King can ensure that your next home improvement project or office renovation is friendly to the environment by reusing and recycling debris and keeping it out of landfills. For instance, did you know that wood cutoffs can be used as mulch or that brick and masonry can make a serviceable driveway bedding?

Those are facts that you learn when you’ve helped literally thousands of clients with debris removal, yard waste removal projects, and foreclosure cleanouts.

Junk King is Committed to Going Green 

What you might not know is that Junk King has received the Super Service Award from Angie’s List and remains the go-to yard waste and debris removal service for thousands of homeowners, condo associations, and businesses nationwide.

Another thing to realize is there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to debris removal. Whether you’re doing a small home renovation or overseeing a larger construction and demolition project, you can lower the amount of waste that makes its way to landfills and lower your carbon footprint by going with a green debris removal service.

Junk King helps homeowners and businesses responsibly dispose of, recycle, or donate construction and demolition debris wherever possible. The concrete that too often makes it way from a dumpster to a landfill can actually be recycled and used to make new roads and buildings.

Well-maintained carpet that’s removed intact from old bedrooms and offices for a renovation can also be donated to a nonprofit and count as a tax deduction. Organizations like Habitat for Humanity, which rebuild homes in disaster- or poverty-stricken areas, eagerly accept well-maintained carpeting and flooring for their ongoing projects.

In keeping with the Environmental Protection Agency’s Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle program, you might even consider reusing the old wood from dismantled cabinetry for other projects. And instead of smashing up old drywall sheets, you could try keeping them intact for creating new interior walls around your home or office.
