Dallas Junk Hauling – Get it Done Today

Ben Franklin once quipped that “the only things certain in life are death and taxes.” There should probably be an amendment to that adage to include junk because if anything is certain it’s that every single human being is going to create garbage & junk. From the food we eat, the clothes we wear and just about anything else that becomes disposable we’re going to leave a huge trail of garbage in our wake wherever we go. Here in Dallas, we create over 2 million tons of garbage every year. It would be great if we could push a button and make that garbage disappear but on many levels it is here to stay and where it stays is in one of the many landfills that dot the Dallas landscape. That doesn’t mean that folks aren’t thinking about what to do with all that garbage. In fact, there is a plan being put forth for Dallas to have zero-waste by the year 2040.

This doesn’t mean we won’t be making any garbage. Instead it means that the junk we will be making will all get recycled, repurposed and reused. That’s a great goal to shoot for but it’s going to require everyone changing the way they think about things. Take for instance the issue of plastic shopping bags. For a zero-waste goal those bags have got to go. There are already several cities around the country who have instituted a plastic bag ban. Folks either have to make do with paper or bring their own bags to the grocery store. It’s a minor inconvenience which is really changing your routines. When you consider the trade off it’s really not that big of a deal. Right now about 85% of Dallas garbage that goes into a landfill could actually be recycled and reused.

You can get ahead of the zero-waste curve by getting rid of the junk in your home. We all have some basic items that we use nearly every day or at least every several days. Most of the stuff we hang onto we either forget why we bought it in the first place or haven’t used it in years. Those kinds of items would definitely qualify as junk.

Dallas Junk Removal – Go with the Professionals

“Not in my backyard.” That’s the rallying cry that was heard from many residents of west Dallas when a new auto-parts salvage yard was proposed for a vacant lot over on Singleton Boulevard. The local residents had been working hard to turn their neighborhood around by leveling abandoned houses, cleaning weeds from lots and coming together to make this a decent neighborhood once again. There’s no getting around the fact that a junk yard is an eye sore. It will also be hard to attract other businesses that aren’t junk related to that area. The measure went to the City Council where they took the matter under review. This is a contentious issue that every community will face sooner or later: what to do with all our junk?

A recent study noted that every American generates a couple of pounds of garbage each week. That’s all the papers, cartons, bottles, wrappers and anything else we dispose of in the course of a given day. That trash has to go somewhere. The bigger items like scrap metal, furniture, patio furniture or construction waste often ends up in those unwanted junk yards. There’s got to be a better way and that would be with recycling. When you can divert that garbage away from a landfill or junk yard then you decrease the need for those places. Better yet, the existing junk yards won’t be feeling the strain if their junk volume is reduced. Here is where a business like Junk King Dallas can be a big help to the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
