Junk Disposal In Chelsea, MA
There are lots of ways to dispose of junk, because both disposal and junk are both broad terms. There is the cliché 'one man's trash is another man's treasure' and it's true in a lot of ways. There is always some use for the things we don't want around. And that gets to the disposal part. When the things we have no value for are no longer taking up space, they are as good as hauled away. But just because they are gone from where we don't want them, that doesn't mean that's the end of the story for the junk.
As a professional, insured junk removal company, we know a thing or two about disposing junk. Everyday we encounter items that people no longer have use for, if they ever did, and don't want occupying space in their homes and businesses. Some of these things are still able to be used, they are functional and undamaged. Some of them are damaged or non-functioning, but still could be used for something by someone. And some of them are more trash or garbage. All of these kinds of things are considered junk, but we do not dispose of them the same way, for a few reasons.
Those things that are undamaged and can be used we do our best to find a good home for. Often that means sending them to a community non-profit that recirculates such items into new hands and homes to live a second life. Many of our clients would like to do this themselves, but for whatever reason don't get to it. We make it easy by picking it up and handling all the logistics of removal and donation. Sometimes people do not know what items still have some life to them and could be saved from the dump.
One huge category of these items is electronic waste. Electronic waste or e-waste refers to things like printer, computers, cellphones, monitors, televisions and batteries, especially the kind that power electronic devices. The trouble with electronic waste is that not much of it is recycled. Though much of it can be recycled, many people do not know that it can be. For example did you know that the common alkali batteries that we use to power common household electronics can be be recycled? How about that most of the components of a cellphone can be recycled? We make recycling electronic waste easy through our junk disposal service.
Another group of items that people have trouble recycling are appliances like dishwashers, washing machines, dryers refrigerators and the like. Common household appliances can actually be recycled. This is a far better option than just putting them on the curb, if that's even an option depending on the municipality and the item. Many of these appliances even if they do not work, can be donated to places that will repair or resell them, like non profits. Even if the appliances no longer work, they can be used for scrap metal. The harmful components are removed and the remaining can be reused.
