It’s April, which means unless you live in Florida, spring has arrived. April means different things for many people. For some, the month could mean having to find ways to avoid or commit an April Fools’ Day prank. Sports fans might welcome the month by counting down the hours until Opening Day for baseball. But April also means spring cleaning season has fired back up, and with it the imminent arrival of Earth Day.
Since 1970, Earth Day has been used to demonstrate support for environmental protection while raising awareness of the link between pollution and public health. Originating at a point in history when pollution was considered an unpleasant but necessary side effect of being successful, Earth Day has become an effective way for people around the world to learn more about the environment and take steps to improve it.
So how does recycling come into play with the junk removal business? In many ways, recycling has changed the very core of the business. By definition, junk removal services include getting trash out of homes and business, from furniture and appliances to bags of garbage and everything in between. But while older hauling practices would have only meant taking a truckload of debris for proposal disposal, efforts to raise environmental awareness have led to the development of new recycling technologies and disposal practices.
And companies like Junk King have taken those changes to heart and adapted their business practices to reflect those changes in removal expectations. Headquartered in San Francisco, California with over 100 franchise locations throughout North America, Junk King has long practiced an eco-friendly mission to make sure items hauled away get recycled and donated as much as possible. The company does more recycling than any other U.S.-based hauling business, all while emphasizing friendly customer service and a commitment to getting the job done right.
