Old TV that needs to be recycled.

Technology marches on, and what was once new and shiny has become old and slow. Electronic devices are filling up landfills all over the world. It’s become such an issue that this kind of trash has its own name: E-waste, which stands for electronic waste. CD players, microwaves, cellphones, DVD players, and more are just piling up. Don’t forget the peripherals, like computer monitors, keyboards, and modems. One piece of old electronic equipment has become king of the landfill: the old CRT (cathode ray tube) television.

Maybe you’ve finally upgraded that tube TV to a beautiful flatscreen model; now it’s time to get rid of your old television. You have a few different options, depending on where you live. Let’s look at your options for TV disposal and recycling.

Downed tree and excess yard waste from a storm.

From time to time all of our great landscaping measures get ruined by mother nature. Severe storms strike and wreak havoc on our finely landscaped properties and a lot of debris ends up in our yards, partly from trees and bushes and other times from things blown in from neighboring properties! A junk removal company might be the perfect solution for what the local trash removal company cannot take from curbside over to the landfill. There are also other eco-friendly ways to handle such messes, such as: composting, mulching, and even gathering the trimmings into a pile and inviting friends to enjoy a good old fashioned bonfire!

How Does Yard Waste Accumulate?

Yard waste takes on many different forms and categories, but for the sake of simplicity, we’ll just talk about the green waste or biological waste. This kind of waste is usually biodegradable and can either be thrown into a wood chipper or composted, usually organic material leftover from landscaping waste or a storm coming through and wreaking havoc on the trees and vegetation on your property. Other examples include but are not limited to: tree limbs, tree branches, leaves, brush, excess grass mowing, holiday trees, stumps, hedge trimmings, weeds, mulch and waste from your garden. Usually you’ll see plenty of waste removal, tree removal, wood chippers, mulching companies on duty the morning after a severe storm on residential and commercial properties, as well as heavily wooded areas like parks. Downed trees can make a significant project for even the most seasoned landscaping pro, so often a junk removal or large yard waste removal company is called in to come to the rescue!

How Yard Waste Removals Work

There are plenty of reasons to consider enlisting a yard waste removal service to take care of your excess yard waste. Collecting, organizing and removing excess yard waste is something that is very physically demanding that not everyone is up to doing. Not to mention that disposal of all of the debris can be difficult due to homeowners not having the right equipment or vehicle to transport, as well as locally community ordinances being in place governing how certain waste is disposed. Some of these yard waste jobs are small and can be done by a local neighborhood high schooler and others need to be consistently kept up on by a professional company throughout the year. Downed trees, uprooted stumps, large masses of yard debris, and all things which require heavy machinery to properly dispose of need to the help of a yard waste removal service.

Organic and Compostable?

What about the other stuff that you commonly see found leftover from a yard waste removal? Things such as: garden waste, gravel, rocks, sand, sod, etc. need to be disposed of differently and likewise, the local landfill or composting services won’t accept them. The local transfer stations or landfill often uses specific disposal areas for these items, but separating the many different types of waste for disposal may result in extra costs. Other items often end up in yard waste that are not compostable, and including them in the disposed waste can result in a rejection by green yard waste collection facilities.

Non-Organic and Landfill Bound!

These items are non-organic waste and include but are not limited to: small yard toys, balls, children’s toy parts, animal waste, plastic bags and pieces, and treated wood (like railroad ties and chemically treated lumber). These items will disrupt the mix of compost and make it unusable, resulting in the compost being disposed of in a landfill. Checking through yard waste debris as it is raked, blown, or gathered will help keep these items from contaminating compostable yard waste. Enlisting the help of a junk removal service like Express Junk Removal can ease the pain of such a project. A junk removal service can help with the removal and heavy lifting of a yard waste removal, literally and figuratively!
