So, you want to be a better recycler? But you have a lot of junk? The truth is that recycling and junk hauling can actually work together.
If you've been recycling at home you're familiar with the plastic, paper, glass and metal categories. But there's more you can recycle from your home.
Recycling is something we are all familiar with and even practice for the most part. But, as a society, there is much more we can do to minimize the waste going into landfills.
Many homeowners tend to take their old equipment and used appliances to the dump. If they are even aware that many of their items can be recycled as scrap metal they’re often unsure how to go about it. But scrap metal recycling should be their first choice.
Everyone finds themselves needing to get rid of junk once in a while. And most everyone makes the efforts to properly recycle. But not everyone realizes that the two actions can be the same thing!
We are a nation of recyclers. At least we’re working hard at becoming one, anyway. Unfortunately, the U.S. currently recycles less than 22 percent of its recyclable waste according to a recent study by Yale University and the EPA.
Summer is a season for getting outside and enjoying the outdoors. It’s a time for fun activities and family outings. But it can also be a time of unexpected injuries, unfortunate encounters with the elements, and spoiled adventures.
Playing it safe for the summer is the key to enjoying the season to the fullest. And that means knowing in advance what to do, what to watch for, and what to avoid. While you can’t prevent every accident, illness, unpleasant event, or every insect bite, you can certainly take steps to minimize them.
There are many other household items that can be recycled in addition to paper, soda cans and plastic water bottles. But many people are quite unaware of these so they end up in our landfills instead.
Recycling is not limited to paper, plastic glass and cans. It can, in fact, include a wide variety of other household trash items. In fact, with some creativity, some planning and consistent effort, almost anything you get rid of can actually be recycled, reused or repurposed.
When most people think of junk disposal they think of landfills. But junk hauling and junk disposal can actually be a big part of our recycling efforts if done correctly.
For most Americans, recycling is an accepted practice and a common fact of life. However, according to a joint study by Yale University and the EPA, Americans still recycle less than 22% of their discarded waste.
When you finally have to replace your home's old water heater, what do you do with it? Recycling really is an option.
Disposing of old appliances is never an easy job. Unless your vendor for the new machine offers to remove your old one for free, the task can be difficult and expensive.
Landfills in the United States are being filled and closing faster than new ones are becoming active. All of which highlights the need for recycling much of what gets hauled with junk removal.
According to statistics provided in a report from SaveOnEnergy, there are currently over 2,000 active landfills across the country while the number of closed, or inactive, landfill locations reaches into the thousands. From plastic and metal, to glass and paper, the variety of materials that could be recycled is vast and abundant.
