Recycling – Saving the Planet one Load at a Time

The Junk Recycler believes that people, places, communities and their environments are profoundly interconnected. We are committed to recycling, and make every effort to keep junk out of landfills.

Recycling is as philanthropic as direct donations. New products can be created from your old ones, without creating pollution, waste or using new resources.

Lasting change happens when people work together. We’re working to take your junk away responsibly, professionally and affordably, and in the process save the planet one load at a time.

 

ITEMS WE RECYCLE

HOUSEHOLD JUNK

OFFICE JUNK

COMMERCIAL JUNK

Whatever items remain after we donate and recycle will be disposed of in an environmentally and responsible way.

DEFINITIONS

Aggregate including concrete, brick, sand and gravel

There are a variety of benefits in recycling aggregate rather than dumping it or burying it in a landfill. The term “aggregate” refers to coarse particulate material used in construction, including sand, gravel, crushed stone, slag and recycled concrete. It has been used in construction as early as the Roman Empire’s road building projects and is still used for such projects to this day. By using recycled aggregate to build new roads we not only reduce the need for gravel mining but also reduce the pollution involved in transportation.

Appliances

Many appliances contain CFCs (i.e. Freon) that when improperly disposed of disperse into the air and contribute to Ozone depletion, devastating the upper atmosphere. We recycle your appliances at registered facilities to guarantee correct disposal.

Books, Clothes and Bric-a-brac

Many smaller household items can be donated or recycled. We will sort through, bag and box your items and make every effort to find them an appropriate new home and second life.

Computers, Monitors, Printers, Photocopiers, Electronic waste

Electronic equipment can contain harmful chemicals such as mercury, cadmium and lead that can pollute our land, air and water if not disposed of properly. It is not only our duty to, but is also law, to responsibly dispose of electronic waste. We are happy to take care of this problem on your behalf.

Estate Cleanout and Foreclosures

Under difficult circumstances, The Junk Recycler responds by being punctual, efficient, discreet and respectful. If you are vacating your or a family member’s home, we can help you clear it of unwanted items as quickly and painlessly as possible. We’ll sympathetically take care of donations, recycling and disposal, so that you can focus on the future.

Furniture removal

We load all your heavy items and every attempt is made to find every unwanted piece a new home. We work with and donate to various local charities and are always looking to expand our donation and recycling network.

Garden waste, trees, shrubs, plants, leaves

When disposed of in landfill, organic waste produces methane, a greenhouse gas that is 70% more powerful than carbon dioxide. We welcome the opportunity to take away your yard litter and debris and conscientiously keep it away from landfill by disposing of it in an environmentally friendly way.

Mattress and box spring removal

Mattresses, traditionally a recycler’s nightmare, consume over 7000 cubic feet of landfill daily. If we cannot donate your mattress to a new home, it can be sent to a recycling facility for correct disposal (up to 80% can be recycled). Please note that we do not take items that have bed bugs. We will not risk contamination to our employees, our customers or the donation centers we work with.

Paper, Cardboard and Packaging

The statistics and effects we have on the environment by NOT reusing or recycling paper and cardboard are staggering. Your “to do” list might have another life as a novel, poem, symphony or love letter. At The Junk Recycler we believe reuse and recycling are our first options for any items we receive.

Plastics

With an endless list including playpens, toys, bottles, packaging etc, plastic is an adaptable substance that is found everywhere in our daily life. Unfortunately up to 25% of landfill is taken up by discarded plastic. It litters our streets, pollutes our waters and chokes our wildlife both on land and sea. Please be vigilant in recycling all your plastics to create a better environment for every creature on the planet.

Scrap Metal Removal

Allow us to recycle your scrap metal. Whether your stove is half baked, exercise equipment exhausted, bikes rusted or barbeques broken, we will load it into our trucks and haul it away for recycling.

Television Removal

TVs are part of the growing e-waste problem and contain hazardous materials that require correct disposal. They also contain recyclables such as steel, plastic, glass and precious metals. It will be our pleasure to ensure your TV will be disposed of and recycled responsibly.

Tire Removal

Their durability and consistent influx have made tires a nightmare for landfills. It does not need to be that way. When properly recycled tires can have a variety of uses including the asphalt under a playground or a high school turf field. When it comes to recycling your wheels, we don’t tread lightly.

Wood

Treated woods such as plywood, stained, painted, demolition wood cannot be recycled. They can contain harmful carcinogens and pollutants that can leach into ground water and be ingested by children, adults and wildlife. Some woods can be reclaimed and reused for construction or other projects. We donate treated wood whenever possible. Whatever cannot be reused is responsibly disposed of. Untreated wood can be recycled into mulch.
