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.

TV Disposal: Do it the Right Way

TV Disposal: Do It The Right Way Junk-King SonomaIf you own a TV that you would like to get rid of because it is broken or has been replaced, don’t merely put it out to the curb and hope someone will swing by to pick it up. That’s not an environmentally responsible way to get rid of a TV. Rain could ruin it or it might sit for weeks until the city’s large item removal squad comes by.  Instead, recycle or donate your old TV to help out the planet or someone who can get some use out of your old screen. Let’s take a look at the many ways to dispose of a TV.

Why Recycling Analog and Flat Screen TVs is a big Deal

In decades past, people did not give considerable thought as to how electronics should be disposed. There wasn’t as much of a focus on the environment, sustainability and recycling. Today, people are more aware of our finite resources, the sensitive environment and the type of world we would like to pass on to future generations. Recycling old electronics like TVs is all about preserving landfill space, preventing a poisoning of the planet and getting more utility out of our raw materials.

If your TV still works, try to pass it on to someone who will get some use out of it like a family member, friend or co-worker. Do not hesitate to donate a working TV to a social services agency or Goodwill. If the TV is out of commission, it should be brought to a recycling center where it will be re-used and if necessary, disposed of in an environmentally safe manner. There are also online e-Steward programs available that are regulated by a stringent certification program. There are even “takeback” programs hosted by the top brands and retailers. You can send or drop off the products for free even if they do not function and the manufacturer will ensure that it is either recycled or disposed of in the proper manner. If there is a Staples or Best Buy in your vicinity, call them to verify that they have a comprehensive electronics collection initiative. These two retailers have been helping consumers recycle old TVs for years.

Sonoma Old TV Disposal

get rid of old televisionAre you ready for football season? You’ve got your home team jersey, your schedule, your best nacho recipe and your fantasy league all fired up and ready to go. What you might be missing is a decent television to watch the games on. Maybe this is the year that you’re finally going to break down and get that big screen flat TV. There has never been a better time to buy a TV like this. Back when flat screens first came onto the market the average cost for a decent set started around $10,000. Not you can get an amazing TV at a fraction of that cost. Plug in the surround sound system and you’re good to go not only for football but for movies, too! Since you spend a lot of time with your television don’t you deserve to have the best quality picture and sound?

A good approach to buying a new flat screen would be to head out to your local appliance store and check out the stock. See which TV had a good picture and is the size that you want. Then take note of the make and model. With the right app, you could scan the tag on the in-store television and find a cheaper price. Show that to the store you’re in and they’ll probably match it. If not, get home and log onto the Internet. You might find an amazing deal on Amazon for the same TV you saw in the store.

While you’re waiting for your new screen to ship, you have the time to call up Junk King for a Television Disposal appointment. This is not something you want to stick in a spare room or down the basement. If you’re never going to plug that old TV set in why hold onto it? Of course, you can’t throw it out with the trash because along with computers and office equipment a television is considered e-waste. That means it has to be properly disposed of at a certified recycling center. When you hire Junk King Sonoma that is just where you’re old TV will wind up.

The Junk King crew who will show up for your removal appointment will have no problem loading up your old set onto the back of their truck. When that is done you can also turn over any other unwanted bulky item to them. This is your shot to finally clear out your closets and garage of all the clutter.
