Chuck It Junk Removal is environmentally conscious with the junk that we haul away and are proponents of green junk removal. What is Green Junk Removal? Reducing what goes into landfills, reusing what is salvageable, and recycling as much of the junk as possible that we haul away.
What Does Chuck It Junk Removal Do with the Junk?
It depends on what it is. When possible we reduce, reuse, and recycle the junk that we remove (furniture, cloths, electronics, metals, paper & cardboard, tires, etc.). Following is what we do with some of the common items we pick up.
Salvageable Items: If items are salvageable, we donate them to local charitable organizations such as Salvation Army and Habitat for Humanity.
E-waste: We have recently partnered with an international R2 certified electronics recycler. They guarantee that 100% of the E-waste they take in gets recycled and nothing ends up in a landfill. Basically, anything with a cord goes to them.
Metals: These are taken to a metal recycling center to be melted down and reused again.
Paper & Cardboard: Large amounts of paper and cardboard are dropped off at different collection containers that benefit various charities.
Tires: Tires are taken to our tire vendor which are then taken to a tire recycler.
Although we do our best to recycle as much as we can; we do take some items to landfills for proper disposal. These are items that are usually at the end of their life cycle for which we cannot find a home or recycling center.
Unfortunately, we are unable to remove and haul Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) including, but not limited to, the following items:
• Cleaners / Solvents of any kind
• Items Highly Flammable
• Toxic or Hazardous materials
If needed, we would be pleased to provide you with information on how to properly dispose of these items.
