Proper Computer & Electronics Disposal/Recycling
Unlike other forms of junk and waste removal, electronic equipment must always be disposed of in a careful and environmentally-safe way. As a point of pride, we at The Junk Removal Pros are experienced in the proper handling of removing and recycling your old or obsolete computers and related equipment - a service that greatly benefits both our homeowner and business-owner clients alike.
Many people are unaware of the seriousness that improper computer disposal can cause to the environment that their community, which is a major reason that calling in an expert team like The Junk Removal Pros is always your safest and most cost-efficient solution. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has specific guidelines for computer disposal, all of which we follow during this particular task. Many computers contain harmful materials such as mercury, lithium-ion, lead, dioxins, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), chromium, radioactive isotopes, and cadmium - all of which cause harm to the environment if they are not disposed of properly. That's why landfills don't take them and you can get hit with fines if you put your old computers out with the trash. Recycling also recovers valuable rare earth metals and precious metals which are in short supply, as well as plastics. These can be re-used in new devices after purification, and our team keeps all of these mandatory protocols in mind when removing your computers and related equipment.
