Quality Junk Hauling Services With An Eco-Friendly Twist

Quality Junk Hauling Services With An Eco-Friendly Twist

A quality junk hauling service should involve more than simply some guys with a truck who haul junk away. And the Capital region has no shortage of people who will let you pay them to just pick up junk.

But top-notch junk hauling services consist of much more than some low-paid junk haulers driving an ugly truck.

The days of the ‘Sanford and Son’ solo junk hauling are mostly history today. Junk removal, junk hauling, and especially junk disposal are a bit more complex than they used to be. In addition, discriminating customers have higher and broader expectations today, especially in the greater Washington DC area.

Which is why Junk King Washington DC specializes in providing top-rated quality junk hauling services.

Quality Junk Hauling Means Green Junk Hauling

So, what do we mean by “quality junk hauling” anyway?

When it comes to defining quality in a service business, a few things top the list of “must haves” such as:

  • Exceptional customer service
  • Highly trained staff
  • Fair and transparent pricing
  • A large number of positive reviews

And, especially for a junk removal service business, a genuinely green and eco-friendly operation.

The truth is that Junk King Washington DC checks off on all these qualities which, in turn, means that we are a truly quality junk hauling service.

But we have never believed in “resting on our laurels” when it comes to doing business with our customers here in the Capital region. We understand that you have choices when it comes to junk removal and that many of our competitors can also score well on some of these features.

But, when it comes to environmentally-conscious and green junk hauling, Junk King has no peer.

What does that look like?

For the most part, junk recycling consists of recovering and reusing construction waste, scrap metal, wood debris, and bulk paper and cardboard waste. Because almost all of these types of materials are both recyclable and in demand, we sort and then facilitate the junk materials we bring in to make this happen.

And then there’s e-waste recycling

E-Waste Collection and E-Waste Recycling in the DC AreaE-Waste Collection and E-Waste Recycling in the DC Area

E-waste, or electronic waste, is essentially any electronic device or appliance containing electronics, which has been disposed of.

Another definition that’s a bit more exhaustive is found at Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) website,

“’E-waste’, ‘electronic waste’, ‘e-scrap’ and ‘end-of-life electronics’ are terms often used to describe used electronics that are nearing the end of their useful life, and are discarded, donated or given to a recycler. Though “e-waste” is the commonly used term, EPA considers e-waste to be a subset of used electronics and recognizes the inherent value of these materials that can be reused, refurbished or recycled to minimize the actual waste that might end up in a landfill or improperly disposed in an unprotected dump site either in the US or abroad.”

Common examples of e-waste that we see here at Junk King include desktop and laptop computers, televisions, VCRs, stereos, copiers, old fax machines, and cell phones.

E-waste recycling is important since certain components of some electronic products contain materials that render them hazardous, depending on their condition and density. For instance, nonfunctioning cathode ray tubes (CRTs) from televisions and monitors are hazardous.

As one source points out,

“E-waste recycling is the reuse and reprocessing of electrical and electronic equipment of any type that has been discarded or regarded as obsolete.”

So, what can be recycled from waste electronics? Recyclable e-waste materials include:

  • Plastic
  • Glass
  • Metal
  • Circuit boards

In addition to the myriad of recoverable materials including precious metals such as gold, silver, and platinum, and rare earth components, recycling diverts potential hazardous and even toxic materials from ending up in landfills and, eventually, the atmosphere or groundwater.

“They were fast and efficient, very professional, a very likeable crew.” – Anthony P, Bowie, MD

“The team was punctual and very polite and friendly. They did a great job getting rid of everything we need them to.” – Susan D, Fort Washington, MD
