Recycling in Tallahassee made Easy with the Junk King Experts

Figuring what you can and cannot recycle is nothing short of perplexing. Some items cannot be thrown in your curbside bin, and some are too large to be picked up by your local waste disposal company. And if you’re recycling in Tallahassee, certain items, such as plastic bags and Styrofoam, cannot be recycled in Leon County bins at all. This doesn’t mean that we have an excuse to skip recycling, it just means that we have to find the easiest and most efficient way to get this done, that’s where Junk King’s expertise comes in. 


What Is Recycling in Tallahassee?

Recycling in Tallahassee is single-stream, which means all recyclables can go in one container. The benefit of single-stream recycling is that you don’t have to separate your recyclables, including plastics, paper, metal, and glass. They all end up in one container. It’s a system that prompts people to recycle more often and increases the quantity of material diverted from landfills. This sounds like recycling is made easy, however that is not necessarily the case.

Single-stream recycling in Tallahassee is not without its drawbacks. For one, human error results in higher levels of contamination and leads to an expensive automation and sorting process. Another notable disadvantage is that it reduces the quality of recovered materials and items that could have been re-used end up discarded.

Also, the lack of an advanced sorting system means there are certain items you can’t recycle in Tallahassee City bins. These include:

  • – Plastic bags and plastic utensils
  • – Plastic buckets, pails, pots, and trays
  • – Large plastic storage bins and laundry hampers
  • – Clothes hangers, both metal, and plastic
  • – Paper plates and cups
  • – Metal items such as mower blades, vehicle parts, and electric motors
  • – Extension cords
  • – Holiday lights and decorations
  • – Appliances, such as microwaves, vacuum cleaners, and old TVs

When such items are mixed in with the items accepted for recycling in Tallahassee, they can contaminate the entire system leading to an expensive sorting process or having them disposed of at the local landfill. When this happens, the City can lose several tons of recyclable material due to a small amount of contamination.

Also, where can you take your old appliances and e-waste? Leon County has a Solid Waste Management Facility that allows residents and businesses to recycle their old electronics. Problem is you have to take the waste to them, which can be an expensive and logistically complicated process. Worry not; this is where Junk King Tallahassee comes in.
