How To Get To Zero Waste

The current diversion rate in the city of Dallas is 21 percent. The goal is to have a diversion rate of 40 percent by 2020. The diversion rate is how much waste is being recycled. The ultimate goal is to get Dallas to zero waste. The city offers recycling pickup once a week for residential homes. However, 20% of those homes still don’t have a recycling bin. As for apartment complexes, they need to set up a separate recycling service. That can only happen when all the renters are on the same page. Commercial businesses are also falling behind the plan and need to be reminded of the importance of achieving zero waste. One company that’s on the front line of eco-friendly disposal policies is Junk King Dallas. They are all about zero waste.

Since they began collecting junk over 10 years ago, Junk King has dedicated itself to a “green” way of doing things. Every city that starts a new franchise sets up relationships with recycling centers and charities. Those are the two main drop offs for the bulk of what Junk King crews collect. Here in Dallas, the Junk King team prides itself on making those recycling drop offs. They accomplish that by training the crews to look for those items that can be repurposed. This is not something you need to think about with regard to the condition of what you’re getting rid of. The Junk King Dallas teams know exactly where an old sofa could go or what to do with rusty auto-parts. There is a good “home” for those items that is in a landfill!

The price for this recycling drop off service is also zero. When Junk King avoids the landfill, they also avoid the hefty dumping fees and they’re happy to pass that savings on to you. You’ll never be charged by the pound with Junk King Dallas. Your flat rate will be based upon how much space the crew will need to pack up all your stuff on the truck. Since they want to get as much onto the truck as possible you can count on scoring the low end of the price scale for your job. You can get your home to zero waste by turning your junk over to Junk King Dallas.
