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.
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.
