How To Get The Most Out Of Your Junk Removal Services

Junk removal can be a chore.

In fact, if you happen to have a large amount of junk, trash, and debris to dispose of, it can be an overwhelming chore. Or, perhaps it’s not volume so much as it’s the size of your junk: huge household appliances or large pieces of broken-down furniture, for example.

That’s the kind of junk removal work that makes you want to just grab your phone and search for “junk removal near me” and hire the cheapest one you can find.

Unfortunately, that’s almost never a good approach.

And it is an especially poor approach for properly taking care of certain types of junk disposal needs such as appliance removal or e-waste recycling. Maybe you have some old tools with motors that have burned up or even a junk stereo system that you held onto hoping it would be a collector’s item someday.

So, how do you go about getting the most out of quality junk removal services?

A Simple Guide on How to Be the “Perfect” Customer When It Comes to Junk RemovalOrganizing Your Junk For Removal Can Make The Process Faster and Easier

At Junk King Washington DC, we understand that it can challenging to choose a junk removal service. But we also know that you will never go wrong by relying on the number one rated junk removal service in the Washington DC area – Junk King.

But you can also optimize your experience with us while maximizing the benefits of hiring Junk King.

And here’s a brief “guide” to help you make that happen:

Step One: Get everything organized prior to setting up your appointment.

This can be things as simple as separating your junk into piles that you want to donate, those you want to sell, and those that you want Junk King to haul away for you.

Step Two: Make sure that everything is “boxed up.”

All the smaller junk items that you’ve collected during your cleanup, or some other junk-generating project can be placed in old boxes or crates you no longer want or need. And, for an even more efficient sorting process, you could employ the use of inexpensive box labels, if you like.

Step Three: Put it all in one central, easy-to-access location.

Of course, this will be much easier with smaller junk items and all those you’ve placed in boxes or crates. However, there may be larger and bulkier junk items such as unusable appliances or heavy equipment that you’d rather not move just to stage it with the rest of your junk. No worries! For those items, you can just point and watch.

Step Four: Group your items together in similar categories.

This could be something as simple as placing all your junk electronics in one box or to one side, old clothing in another, and so on. While this is certainly not required, it can help our junk hauling crew as they will be sorting everything back at our facility later. And we want to pack your junk in our truck so as to use as little space as possible. (Which simply saves you money, by the way!)

Step Five: Stand back and prepare to be amazed.

Our highly trained and courteous junk removal team will load and pack all your junk quickly, safely, and efficiently. They always employ the latest safety steps recommended for providing you with a touchless, no-contact junk removal experience.

Once our team is finished, they will sweep up after themselves and ensure that what you pay is what we quoted – with no extra fees or hidden charges.

Another Way to Get the Most Out of Your Junk Removal ServiceDumpster Rental

Some folks are much more of the DIY type, even when it comes to junk removal. And we get it.

But you can put down the rope tie and ratty old tarp you planned to use for covering up your multiple junk loads. At Junk King Washington DC, we have a better alternative for those who prefer to load their own junk and on their own schedule.

With our unique and user-friendly MINI Dumpster residential dumpster rental, you can accomplish that task but leave off the “making a dump run” part of the job.

No need to search the Internet for “small dumpster rental near me” or “dumpster rental Washington DC” when you can simply make a quick call to Junk King Washington DC and book one of our large capacity but easy access rental dumpsters.

Measuring just under eight feet wide and twelve feet long, the sides of this bright, red dumpster rental are only five feet high and features double swing-open doors for super-easy loading.

And can it take a load!

Our Junk King MINI Dumpster boasts a 12-cubic yard capacity, which is about the same amount of junk that you could fit into five full-size pickup truck beds. Another way to picture this is to imagine stacking six large washing machines side-by-side in two rows. The MINI Dumpster can easily hold that and still have room to spare.

Also, aside from the small footprint and ease of use, this steel debris bin comes with special wheels that prevent scratching and gouging damage to sidewalks, driveways, and asphalt.

So, when you have a large junk removal project and you need a few days to sort and load everything, like with a remodeling or landscaping project, a Junk King MINI Dumpster can be the perfect solution. Our expert team will bring the dumpster to you, place it where you want it, and come back in three days to pick it up – along with all your unwanted junk!

E-Waste Recycling What Can Be Recycled and How

E-Waste Recycling: What Can Be Recycled and How?

For most of us, recycling is something we do with aluminum cans, glass bottles, and paper. Oh… and cardboard and plastic.

Were it that simple.

The sad truth is that, while we do recycle all these types of waste products, there are many, many more items and materials that can be recycled. And, unfortunately, there are some materials that cannot be recycled, like many plastics that we tend to put into recycling bins anyway.

And, of the many other things that can be recycled but often are not, electronic waste – or e-waste – is a big category. The problem is that many of us are not familiar with e-waste, what constitutes e-waste, nor how to properly dispose of it so that it is recycled.

This is why Junk King Washington DC specializes in e-waste junk removal and e-waste recycling.

When Junk Removal Includes Electronic WasteWhen Junk Removal Includes Electronic Waste

Have you ever found yourself in the midst of a major spring cleaning project or other big house cleaning project, and realize you have more stuff to get rid of than you can manage on your own?

And, perhaps, some of those piles of junk include old TVs, computers, maybe a broken tablet, and even a junk stereo system. Throw in a broken Xbox or broken PlayStation game console and you’ve got a lot of e-waste. And you might not have even realized all this junk was considered “e-waste.”

So, you grab your phone and start searching for “junk removal near me” or, maybe, “TV recycling near me” or even for computer recycling if you have quite a few of those items laying around.

But you’re not likely to be searching for “e-waste recycling near me.”

In fact, it’s quite likely that, if you’re like most people, you probably didn’t even realize that e-waste recycling was really a thing.

Yet, it is. And now you know!

So, the next reasonable question would be, “How do I get my e-waste junk recycled?”

And we’re glad you asked.

The Exciting World of E-Waste RecyclingThe Exciting World of E-Waste Recycling

Okay, so maybe not so exciting to most of us. But it is actually a fascinating – and exploding – industry.

When you consider that just about every product that contains electronics has an end life and must be disposed of eventually, the potential for recycling these waste products is massive. And we’re not just talking about computers, TVs, and laptops. It can include everything electronic – even smartwatch and smartphone recycling.

And the volume of electronics just in the United States, not to mention the rest of the world, is huge and growing larger every year.

While accurate figures are difficult to pin down given that those numbers are not fixed or static, we still have a close estimate of the amount of e-waste that is generated in the United States and, of that, how much is actually recycled.

As recently as 2019, it was estimated that the U.S. produced 6.92 million tons of e-waste or about 46 pounds per person. Of all the nations in the world, only China produced more than we did at a whopping 10.13 million tons. However, when you consider that the United States represents only 4.25 percent of the world’s population compared to China’s 18.50 percent, we have really outdone ourselves!

More distressing is the fact that, according to one estimate, only 17 percent of electronic waste in the U.S. gets recycled.

But there are huge benefits to be had with increased e-waste recycling and Junk King Washington DC is ready to help you help our planet by hauling your e-waste and other junk for you.

What kind of benefits, you ask? Here’s a brief overview:

  • The value of the raw materials contained in the e-waste produced in the U.S. during 2019 was $7.49 billion. That’s right. We threw away billions of dollars’ worth of materials that could be used again.
  • Recycling 1 million laptops saves the energy equivalent to the electricity used by 3,657 U.S. homes in a year.
  • For every million cell phones that are recycled, 35,274 pounds of copper, 772 pounds of silver, 75 pounds of gold, and 33 pounds of palladium can be recovered.
  • One ton of circuit boards is estimated to contain 40 to 800 times more gold than one metric ton of ore. There is 30 to 40 times more copper in a ton of circuit boards that can be mined from one metric ton of ore.

Another Good Reason Why E-Waste Recycling in the Washington DC Region MattersAnother Good Reason Why E-Waste Recycling in the Washington DC Region Matters

Along with helping you with your e-waste recycling, Junk King Washington DC shares a very real concern for our environment – both globally and locally.

We have always been a genuinely green business and our junk disposal process successfully sees that 60 percent or more of all the junk we collect – including e-waste – is recycled. And while anything going into landfills is a terrible thing, some things are far worse than others. Like e-waste.

As one website pointed out,

“When e-waste is exposed to the heat, toxic chemicals are released into the air damaging the atmosphere; this is one of the biggest environmental impacts of e-waste. Those toxic materials can then seep into the groundwater, affecting both land and sea animals. Electronic waste can also contribute to air pollution.”

And, according to the United States’ Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), there are also problems with toxic materials leaching into the environment. Landfilling (and illegal dumping) can expose humans to elevated levels of contaminants such as lead, mercury, cadmium, and arsenic, which can lead to irreversible health effects, including cancers, miscarriages, neurological damage, and diminished IQs.

These are not issues that we want to see cropping up in our neighborhoods, nor anywhere else in the greater Washington DC area.

So, when it comes to properly getting rid of and disposing of your e-waste, Junk King Washington DC is standing by, ready to help.
