responsible junk disposal

Responsible junk disposal is mandatory here at 1-844-JUNK-RAT. We are committed to segregating and re-purposing recyclable junk (metal, wood, waste electrical and electronic equipment, and more) in an effort to reduce the negative impacts of trash on the environment and minimize waste that goes to landfills.

We are a family-based, professional junk removal service that prioritizes donation and recycling when possible. After all, the environment is our home, and pollution has an absolutely detrimental effect. We believe in the saying, “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure”. To execute this, we make sure to recycle most of the junk we carry. In fact, our dedicated recycling center is known to recycle over 60% of our items every year.

Once 1-844-JUNK-RAT leaves your home or workplace clean and free of junk, we feel it’s our responsibility to give you peace of mind, knowing that your junk is in good hands.

We give away tips and techniques to our clients on how to reduce trash production as much as possible. For example, we do this by using rechargeable batteries instead of standard disposable batteries.
Once we’ve figured out which items are reusable, we recycle your junk based on the materials they are made of. For example, not all plastics are made of the same material; hence, one should be treated differently from the other.
Instead of throwing junk directly into landfills, we make sure that, as much as possible, they are re-purposed, so they don’t harm the environment.
Biodegradable wastes such as food leftovers, yard debris, plant trimmings, and solid paper by-products are segregated and put into the compost. Once decomposed, they break down into fine particles, which can be used as fertilizers for plants.
We know for a fact that some damaged items can still be good with minor repair.

That said, we set apart repairable stuff, get them repaired, and then donate them to local charities. This way, we could give back to the community to prevent junk from piling up at landfill sites.

Save our landfills. Protect the environment. Call the Rats at 1-844-JUNK-RAT or 1-844-586-5728!
