Let’s be honest, the real estate here can be quite small and expensive — so why clutter things up with useless junk?
A Brief History of Junk Removal Boston
In the days when cows still grazed on the Boston Common, the city sorely lacked a proper garbage disposal process. As you might expect, many of the bright scholars and politicians of Boston helped develop modern urban solutions for junk. In 1850, Lemuel Shattuck even published a book well ahead of its time, explaining how sanitation in Boston was a public health issue.
Today, the city’s Public Works department handles more than 250,000 tons of solid waste each year, and recycles about 40,000 tons. That’s a lot of garbage being handled, but homes and businesses still need junk removal Boston services to get rid of the bulky stuff.
As Boston’s population continues to grow gradually, the strain will also grow on landfills and incinerators. As a junk removal Boston company, Junk King helps people get rid of the useless stuff while sending most of it to be reused or recycled.
