TAMPA, FL - (Marketwired - May 18, 2015) - Home and business owners who want to do the right thing environmentally will routinely recycle. An old sofa or room full of PCs is a far cry from plastic bottles and aluminum cans, however, so those larger items often head for the landfill.
All that changes, though, when they partner with a College Hunks Hauling Junk moving and junk removal franchise. That office full of no-longer-needed furniture, or the working refrigerator that is being replaced, can be handled responsibly with a single phone call.
"Everyone knows that recycling is far better for the environment than just dumping everything and sending it to the landfill, but people don't have the resources to repurpose that old sofa or television," said Jason Killough, Director of Franchise Development. "College Hunks Hauling Junk franchise owners do have the resources, however, so they can step in as a trusted partner to help the client declutter and also reduce landfill traffic."
Thanks to its relationships with Goodwill operators and other vendors in many communities (one of which even owns a College Hunks Hauling Junk franchise), more than 70 percent of items picked up by a College Hunks Hauling Junk moving and junk removal franchise are repurposed.
"In addition to our strong partnership with Goodwill, we also continue to enter into agreements with other nonprofits who handle e-waste, paper and metal recycling," Killough said. "So whether it's that old dining-room set someone wants to be rid of, or an office full of outdated desktop PCs and printers, we don't just haul it away - we help it find a second life."
Many customers ask what happens to their items after pickup, and they are pleased to learn they are helping the environment with their choice of a moving and junk removal franchise. In fact, the word has gotten around so much about College Hunks Hauling Junk's pro-environment stance that it has become a selling point in and of itself.
"Our franchise owners tell us that they have been at a Goodwill location or a community recycling day and heard people talking about our focus on diverting reusable goods and materials from landfills," Killough said. "The fact that we don't have to create these partnerships, but do so, says a lot to people. They want a service, but they also want to engage with a partner who cares about the community now, and in the future. With College Hunks Hauling Junk they get that, and it really sets us apart."
