Computer Equipment Disposal

If you're burdened with obsolete technology, you may have found that computer equipment disposal can be a daunting task. Disposing of old computers, monitors, or printers involves more than simply taking your obsolete equipment out to the curb. Monitors and motherboards both contain hazardous materials that, when disposed of improperly, can filter down into the water table or dispersed into the air. Businesses that conduct improper computer equipment disposal face substantial fines. 1-800-GOT-JUNK? steadfastly adheres to all environmental regulations, and is your answer to disposing of old computers and e-waste safely and efficiently.

The Problems with Disposing of Old Computers

As computing technology increases in complexity and power, the rate of obsolescence increases accordingly. What can be done, however, with your obsolete computer equipment? As previously mentioned, disposing of old computers and electronics isn't as easy as throwing them in the trash. Older computer monitors, for example, house cathode ray tubes, or CRTs, that contain lead, mercury, and other heavy metals. When crushed by heavy equipment in a landfill, CRTs release these materials, many of which have been linked to serious health problems. 1-800-GOT-JUNK? ensures that all computer equipment disposal is conducted in an environmentally safe manner. In fact, we recycle or donate more than sixty percent of all the junk we haul.

Fast, Friendly Appliance Removal

Beyond just disposing of old computers, our trash haulers will take anything non-hazardous that two people can lift. This includes that old refrigerator that's been in the garage for ten years, the washing machine that stopped working years ago and has been occupying the corner of your basement for as long as you can remember, the dishwasher that cost less to replace than repair. And remember, appliance removal from 1-800-GOT-JUNK? includes our friendly, uniformed drivers hauling the appliance from wherever it is; you don't even have to pull it up the stairs or take it out to the curb. And we'll sweep up afterward. Whether it's helping you with computer equipment disposal, appliance removal, or some other junk or debris removal,1-800-GOT-JUNK? can get the job done.
