Homeowners and renters often have junk. Whether it's from a major cleanup or because they're moving, residential junk removal can be a challenging task.
But the good news is that it doesn't have to be a DIY task!
You Gotta Know When to Hold 'Em
One of the dirty little secrets of junk disposal is that upwards of 80 percent of all the things we throw away can potentially be recycled. And the sad reality is that, as a nation, we only recycle between 9 to 35 percent of all recyclable waste, depending on whose numbers you look at.
According to one article,
"According to the EPA, of the 267.8 million tons of municipal solid waste generated by Americans in 2017, only 94.2 million tons were recycled or composted. Sixty-six percent of discarded paper and cardboard was recycled, 27 percent of glass, and 8 percent of plastics were recycled."
Nonetheless, most residences in the U.S. have recycling bins available to them courtesy of their municipal waste management company or utility. While many areas practice what is known as single-stream recycling, other locations require residents to separate their recyclable trash by paper goods, plastics, metals, and glass.
When it comes to the large junk, however - the stuff that won't fit into the recycling bins - we tend to lose sight of recycling and think everything has to go to the dump.
But most of our junk should be kept out of landfills and hauled to recycling facilities instead.
Which adds another wrinkle to a homeowner or renter's DIY junk removal efforts. Knowing what should go to a landfill and what should be kept out and recycled isn't part of everyone's skill set. And if you do figure that out, you still have to determine where to take those potentially recyclable junk items.
Which is why Junk King specializes in residential junk removal and eco-friendly junk disposal.
