Over in Lewisville, residents are getting onboard the recycling program in a big way. Back in July, Waste Management dropped off 96-gallon carts for recyclables. This allowed residents to effortlessly collect the paper, plastic and aluminum that are the bulk of the recycling program. There was also a reworking of the pickup schedules to make things run more smoothly. The results were in the first six months of the program, 56% of residents were using the recycling bins. That then jumped up another 18% by the end of the year. This is keeping a lot of trash out of local landfills and that’s a good thing.
In terms of diversion rates, Junk King has been maintaining a 60% average. That translates into 60% of all the junk they collect being kept out of landfills. Junk King doesn’t handle the small stuff you can recycle on your own weekly pickup. Instead, they’re going to help you get rid of all those things you couldn’t possibly fit into that recycling cart. Even things you might not automatically think could be recycled can be when you hire Junk King.
Objects like old furniture, appliances and electronics can all be tagged and sorted for recycling by Junk King. Keep in mind that not every recycling set up has to involve grinding or melting down something to turn it into something else. If an item can be donated to a charity that will fix it up and resell it, then it is accomplishing the same goal. Those things are being diverted away from landfills and that’s going to be good news for the environment.
In addition to all the stuff from inside your home that Junk King can recycle, they can also work wonders with yard waste recycling. Your old bushes, trees and other brush can all be collected by Junk King and drop off at a mulching facility. Nothing has to go to waste when Junk King is on the job.
If you tried to price out all this work on your own, it could turn out to be a costly affair. Between hiring a moving crew, renting a truck, paying dumping fees and giving up your time you would be spending way too much. Instead, Junk King is going to charge you a flat rate based on home much space your junk takes upon the back of their truck. One fee covers it all. When it comes to reliable junk recycling, Junk King has your back.
