Actually, the real problem is that we throw stuff away.
It’s not really our fault since, as human beings, we produce trash and waste in the process of simply living life. Garbage is a constant of life and humans have been tossing their trash somewhere since prehistoric times.
Except they didn’t have roll away dumpsters. Which may have been a good thing since there was nothing to get filled up quickly other than their home. Or their community garbage pit. Or whatever hole, body of water, or cave they tossed their garbage into.
However, we have things they did not have – disposable packaging and shopping malls, for example. In other words, in our modern world almost everything we consume comes home with us in some form of packaging. That’s including food and water!
And all this packaging ends up in the trash. Shopping malls and stores in our society contribute to the reality that when something we have is old, worn out, or broken, we can simply replace it. And the old, unwanted thing ends up in the trash.
For eons people reused and repurposed almost everything since it was rarely, if ever, an option to just go to the market and buy a new one. In other words, old things almost never ended up in the trash.
The Larger Problem of Trash
If you were to look over the statistics of trash and waste management, you would be forgiven for thinking that the planet should be inundated with mounds of trash by now. As one article reports it, “On a worldwide scale, we produce 2.6 trillion pounds of trash per year.”
Fortunately, most trash and junk does tend to decompose and “go away” eventually and some of it is incinerated.
However, if that were not the case, we probably would be navigating trash piles today.
But let’s forget about the world’s population for a moment and just focus on our own neighborhood. According to one source, Atlanta produces an estimated 17.4 million tons of garbage per year. And a large percentage of this is made up of plastic waste.
With a population of almost six million people, that works out to a whopping 19 tons of garbage per person every year!
It’s no wonder those subdivision roll away dumpsters fill up quickly.
So, what happens to all the garbage (that stays in the roll away dumpsters!) that we throw away around North Atlanta, for example?
According to a story at Atlanta magazine,
“All trash collected around the city of Atlanta is taken to a Waste Management transfer station. The company then determines which landfill gets our garbage. Fulton County is home to three landfills—Safeguard (in Fairburn), Southern States (East Point), and Chadwick Road (Roswell)—so maybe it’s one of those.
Recycling materials, after getting dropped at a transfer station off Fulton Industrial Boulevard, have been getting trucked out to the Pratt Recycling Material Recovery Facility in Conyers, a huge place the Atlanta Recycles coalition calls “state-of-the-art,” since late 2017. Those materials are sorted, processed, and then baled by commodity—paper, plastic, cardboard, etc.—and sold to end-market users…”
While that’s all well and good, sometimes there’s simply too much trash for the dumpster space available in many neighborhoods.
What can you do about that?
Another Trash Removal Solution for North Atlanta
No one likes keeping bags of household garbage piling up in the yard or the garage because there’s no room in the bins or dumpsters. At Junk King North Atlanta, we get it. And we also know that sometimes it’s not just the “normal” garbage that piles up. Sometimes we have a project or a family event that produces an excess amount of trash that needs to be removed.
So, what’s a household to do?
You could, perhaps, remove it yourself. But that requires a vehicle large enough to manage the bags or boxes of trash you need to load. Or, worse, it’s not in bags or boxes (think yard waste) and you aren’t about to put that in your car!
Which means you have to have a truck or get one you can use. Then there’s the loading and securing the load. And you have to know where you’re going to take it because, being a good environmental citizen and a law-abiding one at that, you’re not going to take it out to an empty lot or field somewhere to dump it.
So, you have to go to a waste transfer station near you or possibly a landfill. While there are landfills in Hall, Cherokee, and Forsythe Counties, for example, it still may not be all that convenient depending on where you live.
And, assuming you manage to do all this, once you get there you have to unload it. All of which adds up to a great deal of work and trouble just to get some trash or garbage out of your house or your yard.
There’s got to be a better way.
The good news is that, with Junk King North Atlanta, you do have a better solution for your trash removal problem.
