For those who love the game, the Super Bowl represents the last hurrah of the season. For those who clean the stadium, however, it represents a lot of trash.
Most of us won't be at the game itself, but many of us will either be hosting or attending a Super Bowl game party, or at a sports bar with dozens of even hundreds of others. And someone has to clean up afterwards.
In recent years, the annual Super Bowl game generates close to 40 tons of trash. That's 80,000 pounds, or the equivalent of almost 270 offensive NFL linemen!
And this massive amount of waste is not being ignored or overlooked.
One EPA statistic cited in a study on the environmental impact of sports stadiums estimated that sporting event attendees alone generate around 39 million pounds of trash per year in the U.S. This is 20,000 tons of trash, waste, and debris that has to be clean up and disposed of after every event.
On the bright side, there are organizations and efforts aimed solely at reducing the footprint of stadium events and recycling or reusing as much of the trash and waste as possible.
For example, as one story relates,
"The Super Bowl XLIX in Arizona launched a zero-waste effort in 2015. In addition to waste from game day, community members repurposed textiles and recyclables from pre-game events and celebrations. Even kids got in on the action, donating 33,000 supplies to schools in the area. The all-in effort led to 73% of waste diverted from landfills."
And, at the 2018 Super Bowl event, game planners were set to see 90 percent of the garbage from the game recycled, and the food waste and paper composted or recycled.
This is, of course, garbage generation on a grand scale. Your event will likely be far smaller.
However, if you own or manage a sports bar or pub, for example, you can expect to see a massive increase in the volume of trash and waste material produced during that Sunday. How much more? That all depends on the size of your establishment and the crowd that shows up, of course.
But you can make a safer bet on having more trash removal than you can on a game winner!
Even a large get-together or game day party at your home can result in far more trash, waste, and debris piling up than you'll ever see any other time of the year. Maybe even more than you saw on the floor after Christmas morning!
An after-game party cleanup can often result in filling your residential trash bin more than two or three times - and that's not including your regular trash throughout the weeks. And, if your big game party bash takes place outdoors or in a rented hall, then you're likely going to be hosting many more people.
And that simply means many more pounds of trash.
So, the pressing issue becomes: How do you easily and quickly get rid of all the junk, waste, and debris?
Essentially, you only have two options.
You either do it yourself - somehow - or you have someone do it for you. As we just pointed out, doing it yourself can be difficult and somewhat challenging. And if you have a sports bar or pub of some kind, you may be looking at needing another trash dumpster or paying your waste management vendor a big fee for an extra pickup.
On the other hand, you can always have a professional junk removal company that specializes in bulk trash and junk removal come in and take care of it for you.
Which is why Junk King specializes in bulk trash removal.
The quickest and easiest way is to call us for an appointment and let our highly trained junk removal team come and haul away all your excess trash, waste, rubbish, and debris. You simply point it out to us and we take care of the rest.
But we know that you might want to take a few days to clean up, or you have a cleaning crew that will be doing the cleanup work for you. In those situations, a dumpster rental from Junk King can fit the bill quite nicely. Using one of our easily accessible MINI Dumpsters can provide a central point for your team to load all the debris and trash in one, safe place.
Once your cleanup is complete, our team will come and remove the MINI Dumpster for you.
Easy as that! And we do it all for one, up-front fee with no hidden charges. You never pay by weight, but only by volume - that is, by how much space your debris takes up in our truck or MINI Dumpster.
We understand that "trash talk" is all part of the competitive spirit of the game, but no one really wants to spend time talking about trash pick up and disposal. So, let the pros handle it for you.
