Heavy Metal: Recycling Doesn't Have To Be A Burden

Posted by Junk King on Jun 6, 2022 5:00:00 AM



We are quite adept at recycling waste paper and aluminum cans. But those metal beverage containers are not the only metal waste that can be recycled.

No matter where it comes from - our yards, our garages, our scrap piles, or our loading docks - the removal and disposal of heavy metal junk items can be difficult and even challenging for many.

Heavy Lifting, Without Moving A Muscle

When Your Metal Waste Junk is Too Much to Handle

We are a pretty self-reliant and self-sufficient people in America, a fact that is brought out by the preponderance of DIY television programs, websites, and gazillions of YouTube videos. 

Americans - many of us anyway - love to to things ourselves, whether that's at home or on the job. While some may argue that the general tenor of things among the younger generation is to call on others for many tasks, there are are still some things that most of us figure we can take care of on our own. 

Like getting rid of bulk trash items and junk. And that includes heavy, metal junk items.

But the reality is that, in many instances, moving and loading large metal junk items like old, industrial or commercial equipment, can be dangerous and even too much for us. No one wants to get injured for the sake of loading junk, after all, and the fact is that there are better methods for dealing with heavy metal junk removal. 

Like calling in junk removal experts like Junk King.

Large Metal Junk Disposal Doesn't Have to Be a DIY Project

Hundreds of thousands of homeowners across the fruited plains of America have provided many hours of childhood joy by purchasing and installing metal swing sets. For certain generations, these were practically a staple item in most suburban backyards.

Sadly, they don't last forever. And they must be taken down eventually and gotten rid of in spite of all their rusty metal glory.  And you can't fit them into your residential trash bin, either.

Old lawnmowers, metal gazebos, corrugated metal panels, and a variety of other large, residential  metal junk items can be a challenge when it comes to removal and disposal. And this is especially true for many work places, as well.

Metal construction debris, discarded commercial equipment, and commercial scrap metal can be a costly endeavor for small businesses to deal with on their own. Paying their own employees to load, transport, and unload materials that they are not necessarily trained or equipped to work with can not be less than cost-effective, but it can also be dangerous. 

And the potential liabilities can be more than figurative. 

All of which is why the far better solution for heavy junk metal disposal is to call an expert firm that specializes in commercial junk removal, scrap metal removal, and all varieties of residential junk removal

Large Metal Junk Disposal Doesn't to End Up in Landfills

Also, everything doesn't need to go to the local landfills.

In fact, when it comes to metal junk, recycling is practically a no-brainer given the fact that most all metals are infinitely recyclable. Like the ubiquitous aluminum can, steel, iron, copper, and other common metals can be separated and processed to produce new "raw" material to manufacture new products. 

As one conservation website has noted,

"The good thing about metal recycling is that metal can be recycled over and over without altering its properties. The most common recyclable metals include aluminum and steel."

And the good thing about Junk King is that we always sort and separate recyclable junk items and materials like metals  - heavy junk metal items as well as aluminum cans - to be processed in the most green and eco-friendly manner possible. 

So, why is this such an important issue that we would take the time and effort to recycle as much junk, scrap metal as possible?

Well, that's a great question and we created this infographic to address the benefits of metal recycling:
