Junk removal companies are pretty much all-inclusive. If you have an item to trash, the odds are high that any junk removal company will be able to take it. Of course, there are some items that junk removal companies simply cannot take. Fortunately, this list of items is small compared to what junk companies can take.
All around the country, professional junk removers help people clear out their homes and apartments, but some items tend to be trashed more often than others. Here is a list of some of the most commonly junked items:
It can be hard to know what to do with old electronics, but the good news is that junk removal companies can take care of them for you. Whether you’re getting rid of an old TV or a decades-old computer monitor, junk removal companies take electronics almost every time they’re called.
Because many electronics contain hazardous materials like mercury, junk removal companies will make sure they get properly taken care of for you.
Mattresses are big and awkward to deal with. When you upgrade your mattress, you’ll need to get rid of your old one in one way or another, but this can be complicated if you don’t know what to do with it. Fortunately, junk removal companies frequently take old mattresses out of homes and apartments, so you don’t need to worry.
The materials used in mattresses can be recycled and reused, so junk removal companies will make sure your old mattress gets to where it needs to go. Whether this means taking it to a thrift store or to a recycling center, they take mattresses frequently enough that they’ll know what to do.
Another item that frequently makes it to the junk list is appliances. Fridges and freezers are the most common, but ovens and microwaves are also frequently junked. Junk removal companies will know how to properly dispose of and recycle your old appliance, whether it’s still in working condition or hasn’t been able to turn on in years.
Like electronics, appliances often contain harmful chemicals that require special disposal. Some older appliances, such as old AC units, may contain freon, which needs to be taken care of separately before the appliance itself can be recycled, refurbished, or resold. No matter the condition of your appliance, though, junk removal companies will know how to take care of it in a safe, environmentally conscious manner.
What do you do with a piano that can no longer be tuned or that’s missing several keys? Send it away with your local junk removal company, of course! Although pianos are beautiful instruments, they also take up a lot of space, and when they get old, damaged, or broken, it can be hard to know what to do with them.
Many junk removal companies take pianos every year. Although the instruments are large and often made from materials that don’t decompose easily, junk removal companies will have somewhere they can take the piano in order to either be disassembled and recycled or repaired and donated.
Tires are especially difficult to get rid of, but junk removal companies take thousands every year! Many tires end up in the dump or landfill every year, but this is actually bad for the environment and shouldn’t be done. If you have old tires, junk removal companies can take care of them for you, without harming the environment or just dumping your old tires in the landfill.
