E-Waste Removal & Recycling Services

In Glenview, Des Plaines, Evanston, Mt. Prospect, and Park Ridge, IL

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.

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!
