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.
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.
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.
There are many other household items that can be recycled in addition to just aluminum cans, glass bottles, boxes and newspaper.
In fact, you might be surprised at the variety of household items and debris that can actually be recycled instead of dumped in a landfill. While, most people are quite familiar with the concept of recycling, we do tend to think of it only in terms of common items we're familiar with.
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.
Everyone has large junk items to dispose of once in a while. Often, these items are made of various metals and can be hard to get rid of. But scrap metal recycling makes disposal easier.
Scrap metal recovery and recycling is a massive and growing industry in the United States. Some recent figures give a sense of the volume of materials handled every year.
So what does recycling have to do with cleaning your yard and landscaping? Aside from new life as mulch for your trimmings, it can mean new life for old tools and equipment.
It's getting close to spring and there is more to "spring cleaning" than just sprucing up the inside of your home. As a homeowner, you will always be investing in your house and, most often, your yard and landscaping. And these means that having the proper tools and equipment is essential.
Electronic waste, or E-waste, is a major problem for the waste disposal industry. Because of the vast quantity of e-waste items and the toxic materials in them, recycling is the best solution.
Businesses and homeowners can be discouraged from participating in e-waste recycling by the regulations and added fees involved. In fact, for many people, it's much easier to simply throw out their old electronics. In fact, recycling their e-waste is not a first option for far too many people.
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.
December is typically when we finalize business, update financials, and prepare for the new year. This can include cleaning your offices.
December can be a great time for cleaning and decluttering your offices or place of business. Getting ready for the end of the year may mean catching up on the books, but there are few activities that add a sense of organization and efficiency than getting rid of old junk, office furniture disposal and removing unwanted equipment.
