Chattanooga Junk Recycling – Make a Difference

If you were to pick a single item from the grocery shelves and trace it back to its origins you would be amazed at the intense process that goes into delivering even the simplest of products. Take for instance a gallon of milk. You might think all you have to do is trace the milk from the grocery delivery truck back to the processing plant back to the dairy farm. In reality that is only half of the journey of that milk. You need to also include where the feed given to cattle comes from and where that dairy cow started out.

Now consider the opposite end of something you buy in the grocery store. When you’re done with that milk container, it goes into the trash. If you haven’t recycled it, then it will most likely end up in a landfill. Once there, that plastic bottle is going to join tons and tons of other garbage to simple sit and ferment in the Tennessee sun. As garbage bakes, it begins to revert back to its original form. For a plastic milk jug, that original form is going to be a mass of chemicals. Hopefully, the landfill will have been properly constructed so that there won’t be any seepage from those chemicals into the soil and water supply. “Hopefully”  is the key word. You can prevent that chemical breakdown by recycling that plastic milk jug. With recycling, the plastic is melted down and poured into new molds for new milk jugs. Everyone benefits when that happens.

A plastic milk jug is one thing, but what about those bigger trash items you might have sitting around your Chattanooga home? Things like worn out furniture or unused kitchen appliances or car parts. Believe it or not, all of those items can be recycled too. When you hire an experienced Chattanooga junk recycling company like Junk King, they’ll be able to pick up all that garbage and take it to the right spot. They won’t be dumping all of it into a landfill. Instead it can go into the various recycling centers. There is a facility for wood, metal, fabric and just about any other components that go into the manufacturing of those items. And just like the milk jug, these elements will be chopped up, melted or re-blended to form new materials.

Recycle, repurpose and reuse are the motto of any eco-friendly program. That’s what you should aim for with your junk. You won’t need to spend any time searching the internet to which facility to take your junk when you hire Junk King Chattanooga. They already know the routes.
