If you have a home or a business anywhere in Honolulu, you know that you live in paradise. That paradise is sullied, however, by old electronics and other e-waste that inevitably piles up in and around your property. Because of the potentially hazardous chemicals and high recycling potential of electronic waste, such as the arsenic, cadmium and lead in a typical cell phone, for example, it's really important to keep these items out of Hawaii's limited landfill space. 1-800-GOT-JUNK? helps you do your part to keep Oahu safe and beautiful by picking up and recycling your old electronics for you.
Personal Electronics Should Not Be Thrown Away
These days, almost everybody lives under layers of sophisticated electronic devices. Cellphones, tablets, laptops, desktops and those weird watches that keep track of your heartbeat for you are seemingly everywhere, but none of the fancy stuff we're growing dependent on will last forever. When it's time to get a new cell phone or computer, or when your smartwatch's own heart beats for the last time, don't just throw that stuff in the garbage like leftovers. Almost every piece of electronic gear you own has potentially hazardous chemicals in it that must be kept out of the ground. Batteries, for example, often contain lead, a heavy metal that doesn't belong in the groundwater. Old lithium-ion batteries can also pose a safety hazard if they overheat or catch fire, which is not a good thing in a cluttered landfill.
We Recycled Before it was Cool!
Unfortunately, this can leave the average person wondering what to do with all the old technology that's about run out of life. Some people have the time and the resources to gather it all up and haul it to a designated e-waste disposal facility, but calling 1-800-GOT-JUNK? is by far an easier solution to the problem. When you call us to arrange Honolulu electronics pickup and recycling, we come by at a time and a place that works for you, whether it's your home or your office; before, during or after regular working hours, and pick up your electronic waste for you. Once we have it, we take these nonfunctional devices to one of our recycling centers and crack them open to salvage what we can, and to safely dispose of what we must. If you're unsure of whether your old device counts as e-waste, give us a call at any time, 24 hours a day, and ask; we're glad to help you out with no obligation on your part.
Honolulu Electronics Pickup & Recycling for the Island's Businesses
It's a rare modern business, from a bank to a pineapple farm, that doesn't have long rows of computers to work on. In some ways, the farm is even more dependent on technology than the office, if only because all the trucks need GPS-this and remote comm system-that. When this stuff is irretrievably broken, or just when you get cool new stuff and want to replace the old, it's time to arrange a pickup. Rather than sending an employee on the clock to the local e-waste disposal site, you can give 1-800-GOT-JUNK? a call anytime you get a chance to, we're always available to answer questions and schedule Honolulu electronics pickup and recycling, and have a quick phone consultation and to schedule a quick visit from our team. At your request, we can swing by, grab the box you're keeping the old phones and pagers in, and then swing back out the door to take care of it properly. We'll be sure to quote you the best and most accurate price for the work too, so you aren't surprised by extra charges when the invoice comes.
