We take the protection of our planet seriously here at Junk King. As the planet’s population grows, so does the amount of waste that ends up in a landfill.
In 2018 the total generation of municipal solid waste was 292.4 million tons, about 4.9 pounds per person per day. Of that amount, the EPA states that 50 percent was landfilled.
At Junk King, we feel we can do better than that.
