Washing machines, dryers, refrigerators, ovens, water heaters and air conditioners all fall under the category of “white goods.” These are the items that can be recycled for their metal. However, they can’t just be melted down. They have to be properly dismantled. That’s because all of those items potentially contain some form of hazardous material that shouldn’t be released into the environment. These materials can include: encapsulated polychlorinated biphenyls; Freon, Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), hydro-chlorofluorocarbons (HCFC) and other refrigerants; mercury in switches and temperature control devices; Di(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate in metal-encased capacitors; used oil from compressors and transmissions. Pretty scary sound stuff isn’t it?
Here in Stockton there is a curbside recycling program for the white goods but it comes with several problems. First of all, they will only accept what they deem as small appliances. This means anything bigger than a microwave is ineligible. Secondly, you have to call up for an appointment for the pickup. When was the last time you had to go to the DMV? It’s the same thing here: long waits being put on hold and then transferred all over the place. Even if you make it through all of that red tape, you’ve still got to get that item down to the curb. No small task for some folks. Is there a better way? Yes, and that would be with hiring Junk King Stockton.
Junk King is the Stockton business that makes junk removal a snap. Whether you’re tossing out an old fridge or lumpy mattress, Junk King will have your back. Speaking of backs, you won’t be using yours to do any lifting. That’s because the Junk King crew will do all the work. Forget about dragging something out of your home. The JK crew will come right to where the junk is and take it from there. What could be better than that?
As for the pricing, Junk King charges by the amount of space your stuff will take up on their truck. You’re not paying for labor costs, travel time or dumping fees just truck space. If it turns out that the estimate they provide to you is wrong and your junk takes up more space it won’t matter; you’ll just be paying the estimate. That’s a very sweet deal by anybody’s reckoning.

If you’re ready to get serious about properly disposing of your air conditioner and any other bulky items then Junk King is the only way to go. Give them a call today to see how that can turn your home into a junk free zone.
