Environmentally Conscious Junk Removal
We aim to make your life easier by being prompt and efficient with moving or removing unwanted items in your home or business.
At Grunts Move Junk Removal & Moving, we understand that junk recycling and donating are important to our world and our customers, and we take this responsibility seriously. We always do our best to divert as much of your junk from landfill disposal as possible by donating, repurposing, and recycling.
Junk Recycling and Donating
Grunts Move Junk Removal & Moving is proud to be an environmentally friendly and conscious junk removal company. We believe that every action and decision we make today can positively impact tomorrow. We take great pride in our commitment to sustainability and strive to reduce, reuse, and recycle as much of your unusable junk as possible, so it doesn’t end up in landfills.
We believe giving back to our community, and the environment is essential. That’s why we are proud to partner with local charities, nonprofits, and thrift stores to donate or recycle as much of your unwanted stuff as possible. We make sure that any donations are put to good use, and thrift stores accept donations, so you can trust that your stuff is going to a good home.
From electronics to metal recycling, Grunts Move Junk Removal & Moving is dedicated to creating a better future for our world and ensuring that your junk makes its way back into the community in some form or another. We’re here to make sure you get rid of as much junk as possible in an ethical, responsible, community-minded, and eco-friendly way.
Metals are an important part of our junk recycling and donation efforts. Scrap metal can be recycled into new products, conserving energy and reducing the amount of material used in manufacturing. We do our best to pull as much metal as possible from the junk we remove. We have sizeable roll-off metal containers at our shops, where all the metal goes into the right place for proper recycling. We then work with local teams of scrap collectors to make sure that the metal gets recycled and reused.
All tires, with or without rims, are pulled aside during our junk jobs and stored at one of our facilities. Once we have a trailer load, we bring them all to a regional recycling facility. We recently partnered with Wheels for Warmth, and we will be setting aside any valuable tires with decent tread for donation to this local and charitable organization. Wheels for Warmth collects and sells these usable tires to raise money to help with heating fuel costs for low-income Vermonters and homeless shelters.
We also take special care of any electronics we come across and ensure that they are appropriately recycled. Most electronics, especially those assembled with heavy metals, require special handling. Those heavy metals (lead, mercury, etc.) don’t end up in landfills and then seep into the ground over time. We collect and separate all these electronics at the job sites and, as with tires, store them at our warehouses until we have a full load to bring to various recycling centers and charitable organizations around our region.
Recently, we tested a program in which we collected unwanted items from jobs throughout the year and then held a large “garage” sale at our Williston, VT, location.
We donated all proceeds to Blue Star Mothers of Vermont, whose mission is “to support the Armed Forces of the United States of America and our Veterans. To honor those families whose children have died in service to our country. To assist in the care of unsupported mothers who gave their children to the service of our nation.”
In addition, we make an effort to donate what we can, when we can, to keep as much as possible out of our landfills. We take sustainability seriously and understand the importance of being environmentally conscious when it comes to junk recycling and donating. And our “garage sale” is a living example of how we strive to make a difference by doing our part in reducing, reusing, and recycling. We believe that with everyone’s help, we can make a real impact on the environment.
