Bulk Trash Removal: Household Waste On A Large Scale

Posted by Junk King on May 29, 2023 9:00:00 AM


There are some things that never change when it comes to residential junk removal, and bulk trash is one of them. And so is the job of bulk trash disposal.

In countries like the United States, bulk trash and waste is a pressing issue for waste management and recycling processes, and it is a growing problem, as well.

Bulk Trash Removal: The Big Picture 

One of the realities of living in a home - whether that be an apartment, condo, duplex, or a large, single-family dwelling - is the accumulation of stuff. In other words, most all of us find ourselves burdened from time to time with too many belongings and not enough space.

Then there are the periodic or "once in a great while" instances where we suddenly have large amounts of bulky trash items and junk that we need to dispose of somehow. 

For some, this can happen after a major house cleanout or a move. Others find themselves in this situation after a big family get-together for the holidays. And the bigger the get-together, often the bigger the piles of trash and junk that has to be gotten rid of afterwards!

While some municipalities and private waste management services will accommodate what they often refer to as "bulky trash" items, it's not always convenient nor free. 

Other residents have to take of the loading, hauling, and disposal themselves, however. 

And when you consider that there are currently just over 131,000,000 households in the United States, that can add up to a massive amount of bulk trash month after month, year after year.

A Look at the State of Bulk Trash in America

Americans toss out incredibly massive amounts of waste each year. And a large portion of that solid waste falls under the general category of "bulk trash". In other words, the household trash and waste that won't fit into our trash bins.

Here is an infographic that provides a visual snapshot of the state of bulk trash in the United States.

While there are a few disposal options available for some types of bulk trash items such as reuse and repurposing, much of it typically ends up in landfills or incinerators. However, with increased efforts for diverting these materials to specialized recycling facilities, the overall recycling rate of bulk trash items can be significantly improved. 

And the overall impact on our environment and climate lessened.

Why Calling on Junk King for Bulk Trash Pickup is a Green Option

Traditionally, most so-called "bulky" trash items have been disposed of in landfills across the country. And, until fairly recently, this has been the most cost-effective means of disposal for most large waste materials. That is because so much bulk trash and junk was difficult or impossible to recycle.

However, this is changing.

Most waste management companies and municipal waste disposal agencies consider "bulk trash" to be items such as mattresses, box springs, bed frames, old cabinets, sofas, and other furniture items. And the good news is that most, if not all, of these types of "trash" can be partially or completely recycled providing they are diverted from landfills first.

But some of us have been pioneering the recycling of large trash items for decades already. In fact, one of the hallmarks of Junk King's removal and disposal practices is that we are first and foremost a green company.

And we always have been green - even before "being green" was cool!

What this means for you is that when you partner with us for the pickup and disposal of your bulk trash, you can rest assured that as much of that waste material as possible will be processed in a green and environmentally-friendly manner.  Which means that you can participate in being a conscientious citizen of the planet, we can divert more waste from landfills, and the environment will benefit.
