Colorado Junk Recycling

It all started with one tire.  Now the Midway, Colorado tire dump is home to over 30 million discarded tires. That is around 7.5 million cars worth of tires. If left to rot, those tires can cause a lot of trouble for the surrounding area. And one lightning strike could set the mound ablaze which can pour noxious fumes into the atmosphere. Luckily there is solution underway.

A Colorado recycling company has taken over ownership of the tires and plans to recycle them to a plant in Pueblo which will use them for an alternative form of fuel. It’s win/win all around. Most Colorado junk recycling doesn’t happen on such a massive scale. However, you can reduce your own carbon footprint by hiring a local company that specializes in junk removal and recycling.

As any green advocate knows, there are the three “R’s” of recycling: recycle, re-purpose and reuse. What does that mean for your old junk? When you hire a Colorado junk recycling crew, they will come by your home to pick up all your discarded garbage. We’re not talking about the weekly trash pick-up but about those bigger items you’ve have scattered around the house and backyard. Things like broken kitchen appliances, auto parts that will never make it back into a car and discarded building scraps. Then there are all the old mattresses, sofas and chairs which have seen better days and now need to go away.  A professional Colorado junk recycling team can have all of those items gone in a matter of minutes.

This is when the re-purpose phase kicks into gear. No matter what type of junk you are recycling, there is probably more than one component that needs to be broken down and separated. The sofa is made of cloth, foam, wood and metal. That’s four different re-purposing piles. Do you know where all the various recycling plants are located in Colorado? You don’t have to know when you hire an experienced junk hauling company.

For the reuse part of the three “R’s” all those different elements are sorted and delivered to the manufacturers who turn them into fresh products. You’ve seen shopping bags or greeting cards with the “made from recycled”  materials on them? Paper is actually the easiest item to recycle. It’s merely a matter of grinding it into pulp, washing it down then reconstituting it into fresh reams.

What’s great about hiring a junk hauling company that recycles is that the most effort you have to exert is dialing them on the phone. Junk professionals will come out to your place and assess the volume of material you want hauled away and recycled. You’ll then schedule an appointment for the haulers to come and take away all your junk. This crew should be licensed and bonded because you don’t want to let just anyone into your home. Then all you have to do is point to the junk you want taken away. That’s even less effort then making the phone call! The best way to keep Colorado clean is to recycle. Take a survey of your home today and see what you can recycle, repurpose and reuse.
