Did you know that the state of Texas has around 36.7 tons of buried waste for every man, woman, and child in the state? This statistic, known as the “waste in place” calculation, sheds light on the fact that landfill space across the state of Texas is quickly filling up. On average, every person in the United States throws away around 4.5 pounds of trash every single day, and less than half of that is either recycled, refurbished, or otherwise kept out of the local landfill.
Despite the very real problems associated with landfill scarcity and our ever-increasing waste streams, everyone knows that trash does tend to accumulate, no matter how environmental conscious we attempt to be. How we collectively deal with that trash, however, differs widely from place to place. Whereas some countries such as Slovenia have recycling rates of 72 percent, the United States recycles only about one-third of the trash that we throw out.
Fortunately, many individuals, businesses, community organizations, and local government leaders are implementing strategies to reduce our waste footprint. When it comes to trash removal, businesses and residents of Flower Mound, Texas can help to increase the local landfill diversion rate through working with junk removal companies committed to keeping waste out of the dump. Junk King of Dallas Mid Cities is the region´s top-rated junk removal company. We offer full-service junk removal for everything from used furniture, to large appliances, to construction and yard debris, and more. As long as your junk is not classified as toxic waste, we can take it away.
Below, we explain a few reasons why Junk King of Dallas Mid Cities is the best option for trash removal in Flower Mound.
Reason #1: Helping to Prevent Floods
Most of us probably don’t think that trash collection has a lot to do with flood prevention. However, keeping our trash out of rivers, lakes, drains, and other elements of our storm water collection system plays a fundamental role in helping to avoid flooding in Flower Mound and the surrounding communities of the Dallas/Fort Worth metropolitan area. According to one recent study, the risk of serious flooding in the Dallas region is slowly increasing, with around As 21,722 properties are already at risk for flooding. Each year, flooding in the region causes around $9 million in property damage, and as weather patterns change, this risk will only continue to increase.
According to a recent 2018 press release by the Flower Mound town government, the town is asking residents to help keep newly fallen leaves from polluting the local ponds, streams and storm water system. Leaf litter in the area regularly clogs the town’s storm water system, ponds, creeks and streams, thus reducing the amount of oxygen to aquatic organisms. Furthermore, excess leaf litter can block these bodies of flowing water, thus increasing the risk for moderate to serious flooding. The town news release offered the following solutions to help prevent leaf litter pollution:
- Rake It – Clean up leaf litter on a regular basis
- Bag It – Place all raked leaves in waste disposal bags
- Recycle It – Leaves are a valuable commodity in a compost pile. Composting reduces the need for pesticides and fertilizers in gardens.
But what exactly are you supposed to do with dozens of garbage bags full of leaves and other yard debris? Having those bags sit at the end of your driveway for a week (or more) while waiting for the regular trash service isn’t exactly a great way to improve the aesthetic quality of your home´s landscaping. For homeowners who want to do their part to help avoid the flooding that comes with excess leaf litter, but who don’t want to wait for the regular waste management team to come by, Junk King of Dallas Mid-Cities offers fast, efficient, and competitively-priced junk removal service. We can pick up all of your yard debris, and ensure that it doesn’t simply get sent to the local landfill. We also offer fair and transparent pricing so that you only pay for the space that you use in our trucks.
Reason #2: A Commitment to the Environment
Junk King of the Dallas Mid Cities area is not only the top-rated junk removal company, but is also the greenest one. Our junk removal services can help individuals, homeowners, businesses, and even large industries find an environmentally friendly solution to the trash that is accumulating in their spaces. Whereas many junk removal services will simply pick up your trash and drive it to the nearest landfill, we are 100 percent committed to making the effort to finding a “second life” for the items we pick up.
Our team of junk removal professionals has strong relationships with local recycling operations, donation shops, and several nonprofit organizations. We are thus able to make every effort to either recycle, repurpose, or donate the items that we collect. As we mentioned above, we are able to help turn much of your leaf little and other yard waste into valuable compost, instead of simply being sent to rot at the local landfill. The same goes for the majority of other junk items that we pick up.
Our network of connections allows us to “upcycle,” donate, or repurpose construction and demolition debris that accumulates during home construction or major renovation projects. Because construction and demolition debris (C&D debris) is almost double the amount of municipal solid waste (MSW), working with Junk King to get rid of any type of construction debris ensures that you are doing your part to keep this large waste stream from ending up in our area´s landfills.
