Small Business Is Best When It Comes to Recycling

Small Business Is Best When It Comes to Recycling

When it comes to recycling, leave it to small business to lead the way. Need proof? Okay, let's discuss it. Almost 2/3 of aluminum cans are recycled in the U.S. Eleven states have deposits on many glass containers.

Plastic containers too often have a deposit charge. Is there anyone around who is smaller business than the guy with a shopping cart full of bottles and cans? I have been in places in California where a soft drink containers are picked up almost as soon as you finish your drink. This kind of recycling works. I drag my big bags full of bottles and cans to the recyclers three or four times a year, and make ten bucks or so every time. It's not that I need the money, but it is the right thing to do, and let's face it, ten bucks is better than a poke in the eye.

Small business leads the way in all sorts of recycling, reuse, and even composting programs. I'll bet that you can easily find scrap metal recyclers in your area that are not tied to big corporations. There was a time in the United States when the main thing that got recycled were glass soda bottles with a deposit. Now there are so many opportunities to reuse and recycle beyond the obvious. If anything, small business is the best at recycle and reuse. We have stores in Silicon Valley that specialize in old, outdated (if you will) computer and electronics hardware. Imagine, in the heart of the nation's premiere area for computer innovation and specialization, a small business is making money (presumably) by selling old items.

Junk King junk hauling and recycling is a great example of small business making the world greener. Of the items that Junk King hauls, 60% gets recycled. This is the way it has always been with the company. They were founded as green in 2005, and have only gotten greener. The company revolutionized the industry back then by recognizing that recycling is not only good for the country, but good for business. Recycling produces revenue for the company. Recycling is cleaner, and more cost effective. Give Junk King a try.
