If you have a bunch of junk or debris around your house, and you call Junk King hauling and recycling? What happens with your junk? Do they handle it properly? Does the E-waste get recycled or dumped in the landfill? What about your metals? Your cardboard? Old appliances? Just how do we recycle or donate what you don't want anymore?

We have talked about E-waste here in the past. Your old television and computers are full of reusable and recyclable material. But they are also full of contaminants. We can't have our landfills contaminated with lead, cadmium, beryllium, or brominated flame retardants among other things. If we just dump that junk, we might as well forget ever using that land for any other purpose. Junk King recycles E-waste properly. What is the proper recycling of E-waste? Giving it to a reputable firm that handles E-waste and does not ship it abroad where the laws regarding proper disposal are lax, or non-existent. I recently discussed Junk King's green policies regarding our pick up of old appliances. We don't dump them. An old refrigerator contains gas that depletes our ozone layer among other contaminants.

Junk King separates out the metals including copper that you have us pick up. We recycle paper and cardboard. It doesn't just get dumped. Our 60% recycling and donating of your debris or junk is good for the economy; good for our environment; and good for you and our company. We've been green since 2005. We were founded then to be green, and all our franchises are held to that standard now and forever. Our recycling of metals, E-waste, cardboard and paper, etc. helps keep Junk King competitive in cost. You save money and the environment when you call us.

So, do you, as a customer have to do anything special when you have Junk King pick up your items? Do you have to separate the metal, the E-waste, the paper and cardboard into piles before we can come and work for you? Absolutely not. We do all the work. We come to your home, office, or work site and pick up your debris or junk. Then we separate it out at the warehouse. Call us or visit our website to learn more. 1-888-888-5865 (JUNK)
