When it comes to recycling your kitchen trash, not everything can be used. According to a recent post in The Columbus Dispatch, the Rumpke recycling center that takes in all the garbage from Central Ohio is selective with certain items. For instance, things like plastic bags, plastic tubs and containers are forced to be dumped in the landfill. That is because Rumpke can’t find buyers for those materials. They are actively working to find a company that can repurpose those specific materials but so far, it’s been tough going. One thing consumers can demand is that the companies who are making products that go into those containers use recycled materials. You’ll know if a container is recycled by checking out the fine print on the label. If the demand goes up, then places like Rumpke will be able to divert those items away from landfill.
Not having all your collected recyclables actually getting recycled can be frustrating. However, you can take some proactive measures to insure the rest of your wanted rubbished is recycled. That can happen when you hire a company like Junk King. Since they started collecting junk back in 2005, Junk King has made great strides with keeping tons of trash out of local landfills. Not only does this mean dropping items off at recycling centers but also donating them to local charities. Yes, turning your sofa over to a charity can be considered recycling and that is what Junk King is all about.
When you hire Junk King for your rubbish removal, you’re actually hiring two very capable workers who will be doing all the actually lifting and loading. They’ll break a sweat so you don’t have to! These are the same crews who have been trained to spot any of those items that can be repurposed. Not only does that include everything they will collect from the inside of your home but also a lot of what you have piled up outdoors. Junk King can recycle things like concrete chunks, lumber scraps and even dirt. Junk King has set up working relationships with several companies and charities in the area and know what they are looking for.
Does this mean you’ll be paying extra for recycling? Absolutely not! Junk King will be charging you a flat rate based strictly on volume. For junk removal and junk recycling done right, you can depend on Junk King.
