2013 Commercial Services Earth Day Events

Earth Day is April 22nd and it’s a great opportunity to highlight the importance and ease of recycling during a commercial relocation.  This year we have several Earth Day events planned.

What’s Involved in JK’s Earth Day Event?

  • Electronic Recycling

    This includes PCs/ laptops, scanners and printers. A full list of what can be recycled can be found here.  We are offering this service because electronic equipment contains metals and other materials that can become hazardous to your health, and the health of the environment, if they are not properly managed during disposal.

  • Purging and Shredding of Documents

    Have files that need to be securely shredded? We can take care of them and make sure they are recycled. When possible boxes will be reused. If they cannot be reused, they are placed in our bailer, compacted, and recycled.

  • Furniture Removal

    Prior to JK arriving, all of the tenants of the building will have filled out a form letting us know what is going and what is staying. When we arrive, our crews will go floor-by-floor removing everything that’s been listed on the inventory. It’s a great way to combine spring cleaning with Earth Day.

Why Do We Participate?

We like hosting these events because we want to demonstrate the importance of properly destroyed files and properly recycled electronics. Additionally, it allows us the opportunity to discuss a viable alternative to recycling, donation!

We work with numerous non-profit organizations to provide them with donated furniture and other reusable items. We store the items in our warehouse, always available to the non-profit organizations. They simply come and pick up the items they need.  It’s great to see these items be put to good use instead of being thrown away.
