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.
