E-Waste Removal & Recycling Services
Great Junk Removal understands the ways the modern world works. We know the obsession America has with the latest and greatest – especially when talking about technology. While that societal need for the newest gadget is great for manufacturers of those products, it is a very real blow to the environmental movement. Why? Because most technological innovation comes with a toxic price tag that the Earth has to pay, that’s why.
Every new gadget we buy replaces the one we had before, but what do most of us do with the old device? We put it in a drawer or the basement, the attic or the garage and forget about it. Or, worse yet, we toss it in the garbage without realizing electronics are manufactured with toxic and hazardous chemicals that will escape into the environment if not disposed of properly. There’s also Illinois Senate Bill 2106 – The Electronic Products Recycling & Reuse Act – which bans the dumping of electronic waste in any Illinois landfill. Garbage trucks are also instructed to never pick up e-waste items for disposal. Don’t worry! Great Junk Removal is ready to assist you with your e-waste issues.
As part of our overall commitment to the environment, Great Junk Removal is proud to offer E-Waste Collection Bins for your business, office, or school to assist you with the legal, ethical disposal of all your electronics. Contact our office today at (773) 628-7055 to speak with one of our helpful staff members about placing an E-Waste Receptacle at your location.
Northern Chicago’s Premier E-Waste Removal & Recycling
With the regularity with which most Americans change electronic devices today, it is not surprising that you can find unused, functional electronic devices filling the garages, attics, basements, and any other free space in our homes, offices, and even our vehicles. This can be especially true in office settings where all of the technology tends to be upgraded at the same time. Instead of putting it all in the storeroom, do yourself, the environment, and someone in need a favor by calling the professionals at Great Junk Removal. We specialize in giving your old technology a new life, and if that’s not possible you can rest easy knowing we will never dispose of anything electronic in a landfill. Illegal haulers and unethical junk removal companies often have protections in place – like no address listed or untraceable cell phones – so they’re protected against the penalties associated with illegal dumping of electronics. It’s important to note that an old computer can be traced back to its original owner, so if you take a chance on an illegal hauler you could get stuck with a substantial fine. As Chicago’s best E-Waste Removal service, Great Junk Removal will never cut corners or take chances with your electronics or the environment. Call (773) 628-7055 today to discuss e-waste disposal with one of our helpful professionals.
Here’s a short list of the commonly disposed of e-waste we encounter: PCs, Laptops, Tablets, PDAs, Stereos, Radios, CBs, Servers, Copiers, Cell Phones, Printers, Televisions, Video Game Systems, Apple Products, MP3 Players, Answering Machines, Shredders, Faxes, VCRs, DVD Players, ATMs
Computer Removal & Recycling
One of the constants of modern life is the replacement of necessary technological tools and accessories. Computer monitors fit this mold exactly. Each monitor contains several pounds of lead while the circuit boards inside contain cadmium and mercury – both terribly toxic to the environment. This waste material can quickly add up in even a modest home, and should be disposed of properly before the situation gets out of hand. This is especially true in offices where large numbers of monitors and computers are replaced simultaneously. Great Junk Removal can help you stay on the right side of the dumping law and the current trend toward “green” thinking. It’s important to note that Great Junk Removal will always go out of our way to ensure that all the items we collect are reused if possible, and recycled if not. Our commitment to Chicagoland and the environment means we take e-waste disposal very, very seriously – and hope that you do too! Call our skilled team at (773) 628-7055 today to chat with our staff about a solution to your growing e-waste issue.
