December can be a great time for cleaning and decluttering your offices or place of business. Getting ready for the end of the year may mean catching up on the books, but there are few activities that add a sense of organization and efficiency than getting rid of old junk, office furniture disposal and removing unwanted equipment.
Clearing Junk Means Junk Hauling
Depending on the amount of old furniture, excess equipment, and junk you clear out, it's quite possible that you will be needing a great deal of trash hauling. The work and logistics required to get rid of all your old or broken office furniture, file cabinets, electronics and computer equipment can be daunting.
And if you maintain your own landscaping at your place of business, and decide to spruce that up, as well, that can create a large amount of organic waste and debris.
So what do you do with all that junk and debris?
Well, you could hire a local guy with a truck. But this can be risky and unreliable. And you can certainly do it yourself. But that means having the proper vehicles, time, and personnel to spare for the job.
Or you could choose the strategic option and hire a professional debris hauling firm. With a professional team on the job, you can be assured that the work will be done quickly, efficiently, and completely. And you won’t have to concern yourself with municipal dumping fees, possible fines, or waiting in line at the landfill - assuming you can even take your debris to a landfill.
Another advantage of hiring a professional trash hauling team is that all recycling and re-purposing of appropriate items will be taken care of for you. That means you can have the satisfaction of being a “good corporate citizen” and not have to work out the logistics of where to take which items, and so on.
What About All of the E-Waste?
At the rate that most of businesses replace and upgrade their office electronics to new models, a large number of older devices and equipment usually ends up no longer being used and simply collecting dust in a storage closet or un-used office.
If you were to think about your office right now, how many printers, computer monitors and old televisions do you have that are unused or unusable? If you are like most businesses, it’s probably time to get rid of those old electronic items. These items are also known as "e-waste" and e-waste disposal is often a problem.
When it comes to e-waste disposal there are essentially three options: you can keep it, dispose of it or recycle it. If you keep it, as we have already noted, your business will start accumulating piles of out-dated printers, fax machines and computers that just take up valuable space in your office.
Unfortunately, most people simply go with the second option and just throw their e-wast in the trash. They rarely, if ever, consider the option of recycling their electronic waste items. In fact, it's been estimated that up to 50 million tons of e-waste is tossed out every year and, of that amount, only around 18% is recycled.
A Professional Team Will Simplify Your Trash Hauling Project
If you are a business owner, or manager in your business, you certainly have far more important things to deal with other than supervising office trash hauling. And, while you might argue that this is only an annual task, have you stopped to consider the potential downside of having to haul your own company’s junk and trash?
Here’s are a few points to consider:
- Additional time required on the part of your employees (or yourself)
- Possibility of injuries or strained muscles and backs
- Added cost of truck and equipment rental, along with disposal fees
- Managing the logistics of what must be disposed of versus what can be recycled
And before you make the call, keep in mind that another great option for some of you old stuff is to give it away.
As you are probably already aware, there many non-profit groups, church or community thrift stores, and trash-to-treasure boutiques that would be glad to take some of your equipment and items for free. Donating your used equipment and devices can be a great alternative since many of these organizations will pick them up for you, saving you from that chore.
One more option to consider if just want to offload old equipment: there are businesses out there that will take your used appliances and then dismantle them for the usable scrap parts and recyclable materials.
These options can benefit you by eliminating the work of lifting, hauling, and dumping your old equipment and devices. In addition, they can save you the disposal fees you would probably have to pay at the landfill or disposal facility.
