  1. Computer recycling

When the office computers become broken and obsolete, you don’t necessarily have to throw them in the trash. However, there are numerous ways of recycling computers such as salvage parts, repurposing or recycling of individual materials. The disposal process begins like any other junk removal process, only that the device passes through stages of sorting as well as recycling. In some cases, broken monitors can have many working parts which can be re-used in fixing other broken computers.

  1. Printer recycling    

Printer recycling has become very important today due to the many shiny new gadgets popping up in markets every day. Printer recycling is known to extract some precious earth metals as well as plastics which are short in supply. All these can be re-used in other devices after purification. Generally, most printers contain materials like mercury, lead, lithium ion, chromium, cadmium and radioactive isotopes which can harm the environment if it is not properly disposed of.

  1. Office furniture

Both old and broken office furniture needs to be hauled off and disposed of. Nobody really wants to handle this task involving heavy pieces alone. However, the fact remains that either office relocation or even replacing the existing furniture is a challenge. For this, you will need to hire a junk removal company to ensure that your office furniture is disposed of in an environmentally friendly way. It’s also very difficult to recycle the office furniture due to the mixed materials used during the making process. A single piece of furniture may have metal, treated wood and plastic. In order to recycle them, all these materials need to be separated first.

  1. Office electronics

Due to technological advancements, it means that we end up with broken electronics which we need to get rid of. However, this isn’t just throwing them in the garbage. This is because the items contain some dangerous materials and should be disposed of properly or recycled to prevent damaging our environment. You will need to take them to a local recycling centre or hire a rubbish removalist who is able to send your electronic goods to be refurbished or recycled properly.

  1. Pallet removal

Disposing of all unwanted pallets remain a major problem for many businesses since their storage areas, back rooms and garbage bins fill up with the broken or empty platforms. Some of the reasons why pallet junk accumulates are because they are poor in quality, small quantities, local market dynamics and unusual sizes.
