Junk Removal Tips And Facts [Infographic]


As more people accumulate more goods - and replace old ones - the junk removal industry grows accordingly. And it is a big industry!

Strictly speaking, the junk removal industry serves by removing unwanted items from a property. And most junk removal professionals work in cooperation with local landfills, recycling centers, thrift stores, and other community businesses.


A Rose By Any Other Name...

There is an old saying that, "One man's junk is another man's treasure." And, while that may not be literally true in most cases, the fact is that most of what we throw out has value.

In fact, it is estimated that between 60 to 80 percent of what is routinely thrown into the waste stream in the United States is recyclable. And of that, there is a significant portion that is also reusable "as is" and simply needed to be repurposed or reused somewhere else.

But our default is to throw away what we no longer want or need.

How much is that?

Well, the average person in the United States creates almost 4.5 pounds of waste every day. And, of that waste, close to a third of it can be either recycled or composted.

In the United States, according to the U.S. Geological Survey, over 250 million tons of trash is generated every year, with more than 85 million tons of it being either recyclable or compostable material.

Unfortunately, the recycling rate in the United States is still only a little over 34 percent.

The bottom line is that everything we get rid of does not and should not go to a landfill. This is why, at Junk King, we make every effort to recycle or reuse everything that comes into our doors. 

Junk Removal: Tips and Facts

We understand that junk removal is not a topic of conversation for most people on any given day, or any day, for that matter! But waste generation and junk hauling are essential to our lives on a daily basis despite the fact that most folks know little or nothing about the industry.

With that in mind, please feel free to make use of the handy infographic we've provided here:
