There are times when the amount of trash you need to get rid of is far more than you can put in your residential trash bin. So, what do you do then?
Make a dump run? Maybe. Unless you don't a have a truck. Or a landfill nearby.
It can happen for a variety of reasons.
Maybe you just moved in. All that stuff you decided notto get rid when you were packing and leaving your old home probably got packed into cardboard moving boxes. And now you're up to your knees in flattened boxes!
Or perhaps you're moving and haven't packed up yet. That could result in a massive amount of trash piling up including any junk you wanted to get rid of anyway. But it can often be far more than you'll ever stuff into your residential trash disposal bin (even if you use your neighbor's!)
Then there is the "let's clean out the garage and make some room for the (cars, pool table, exercise equipment, etc.)"project.
Actually, this can include much more than your garage and the end result can be, again, a large amount of household trash, junk, and old stuff no one wants anymore. And, like any other event that leads to the need for bulk trash removal, you still have to find a way to get rid of it all.
Also, one of the things we often fail to consider is that a large amount of the so-called trash and junk we want to dispose of can be recycled.
The truth is that, according to sources such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), up to 80 percent of the solid waste that is thrown out every day could be recycled. Or, it is recyclable anyway.
But the further truth is that, as a nation, we don't even come close to that.
In fact, according to the EPA,
The total generation of municipal solid waste (MSW) in 2018 was 292.4 million tons... or 4.9 pounds per person per day. Of the MSW generated, approximately 69 million tons were recycled and 25 million tons were composted.
The good news is, despite that fact that there is still over 200 million tons that still ends up in landfills, all of us can do much more to reduce that amount. In fact, we could eventually bring that landfilling amount could be reduced to something closer to 60 million tons.
So, what are some of the other things we can recycle from our household trash aside from paper, glass, aluminum and some plastic?
We put together this handy guide to encourage and inform you on other household trash items you can recycle - or have recycled for you:
And this is just the smaller stuff!
The reality is that large, bulk items such as old furniture, broken-down appliances, non-working hot tubs, and even used mattresses can all be recycled to some extent. While not every piece of material in these household items may be recyclable or recoverable, up to 90 percent of most of them are.
But the question that often comes up at this point is how, exactly, can you get all this bulk trash removed for you reliably and affordably? Along with that question is wanting to know how to get those bulk household items recycled properly?
All of which is why Junk King specializes in bulk trash removal!
Okay, so, first you'll need a truck - preferably a full-sized pickup truck complete with tarps and tie-downs for securing your loads. You may also need some tools like appliance or furniture dollies. Not to mention some reliable and capable "muscle" to help you with all the loading, hauling, and unloading.
