APPLIANCE AND ELECTRONIC RECYCLING

You can count on Green Junk Removal & Recycling to properly recycle and dispose of all your appliances and e-Waste. We take your appliances and e-Waste to facilities that properly dispose of and recycle the component parts according to strict EPA regulations. Once it arrives at the recycling facility, your items are sorted by type, stripped of component parts like rare metals, glass, scrap metal and plastics, then each component is safely collected or melted down and recycled into new parts.

Proper disposal of e-waste is important because most electronics contain components made of hazardous materials like lead, arsenic and mercury. Dumping these items in a landfill is extremely toxic to the environment. If these items are thrown out with the regular trash, they will be crushed, burned and recycled along with other materials that may be reused, but in the process, the mishandled e-waste can release very harmful gases resulting in air and water pollution. Adhering by these guidelines reduces environmental and human health impacts from improper recycling and increases access to reusable and refurbished equipment to those who need it. Properly recycling e-waste also conserves our limited natural resources and reduces the environmental impact associated with mining and processing virgin materials.

Same story goes for appliances. Many old appliances contain ozone-depleting chemicals that can and will eventually disperse into the air if taken to a landfill and left there to break down. Did you know that the average refrigerator 10 years old or older contains about 159 pounds of steel, 75 pounds of plastic and 10 pound of glass? Recycling with us ensures proper disposal of these materials and reduces demand in landfill space. Also for every ton of steel that is properly recycled, roughly the amount in 16 full size refrigerators, we save 2500 pounds of iron ore, 1400 pounds of coal and 120 pounds of limestone in natural resources!
