Environmentally Friendly Junk Disposal and Recycling

Arwood Waste is dedicated to reliable and responsible junk removal and disposal. We always aim to meet or exceed expectations and it's this philosophy that drives us to not only follow applicable environmental requirements but to go beyond them and seek creative ways to reduce, reuse and recycle wherever we can. We pride ourselves on being accountable to the community by emphasizing environmental stewardship and corporate social responsibility. We support recycling education efforts like The Recycle Guide that provide information and resources for our communities. Between recycling and donations, we keep as much as 80% of your junk out of landfills.


Much of the materials we haul can be donated and reused, so we make sure to identify and donate any reusable furniture, electronics, clothing and home wares to local charities whenever possible. Even salvageable construction debris is donated to Habitat for Humanity. We feel it's important to take care of our community, and one of the ways we do that is by making sure nothing goes to waste. Our socially responsible practices ensure your old junk is put to good use and kept out of landfills whenever possible.


Recycling your junk matters! We make every effort to recycle items that cannot be salvaged and reused. Some of the materials we recycle include paper, electronics, metals, glass, concrete, construction debris, drywall and furniture. When items are dismantled for recycling, components that contain hazardous materials are removed and disposed of separately. By recycling your junk, we help save natural resources, reduce harvesting of new materials, prevent harmful chemicals from being released into the environment and reduce the growth of landfills.


When items cannot be reused or recycled, we make sure they are disposed of properly. Many junk items contain chemicals such as lead, cadmium, and mercury that can be harmful to health and the environment if not disposed of properly. These chemicals are released into air and water when they are crushed in landfills and should never go in your regular household garbage. We take safe disposal of these harmful materials very seriously, which is why we meet all regulatory requirements, often adopting our own higher standards to protect the environment.

Removing and Recycling Batteries

In many areas, there are strict regulations for the disposal of batteries, such as nickel-cadmium or small sealed lead acid rechargeable batteries and any products that contain these types of batteries. These items should be recycled or sent to a facility with permits to dispose of them correctly.

These laws and regulations exist to protect public health and the environment from toxic heavy metals, including cadmium and lead. When these materials enter the environment, they can accumulate in crops, livestock, fish, drinking water and the air we breathe. Long term exposure to these metals can result in serious health complications including brain, lung and kidney damage and possibly cancer. Lead exposure is especially harmful during pregnancy and early childhood and can result in premature birth, slow growth and decreased intelligence. We take special care to properly dispose of batteries and electronics.

Please help us protect our community and the environment by removing and disposing of your batteries responsibly.
