How thorough are you with your home recycling? Do you separate all your plastics, papers, metals and glass? Yes, the occasional container can slip by and end up in the general trashcan but if you’re making the recycling effort, then you’re moving your home that much closer to becoming zero waste. This is the sustainability concept that calls for all waste materials to be recycled, repurposed and reused. In other words, with zero waste nothing goes to a landfill. Instead, it is ground up to make raw elements or burned to generate fuel for electricity. Nothing goes to waste! That is certainly a big challenge but one that is made easier with a company like Junk King.
Junk King are the professional junk haulers who have been working towards a zero waste goal since they started collecting rubbish back in 2005. Junk King strives to break that chain between the garbage and the dump. They do this by setting up partnerships with Dayton recycling facilities and charities. Then whenever they collect an object that can be dropped off at one of those places, Junk King will divert it to there. So far, they’ve been averaging a respectable 60% diversion rate. That translates into tons of garbage being kept out of landfills and that’s very good news for our air, water and soil.
You might be wondering which of your unwanted items can be repurposed. Actually, you don’t have to worry about that. The Junk King crews have all been trained to handle that type of work. Most of the sorting takes place back at the depot. The drop offs will only happen when there is a full pallet or truck load of material. In other words, all that effort goes on long after your junk has been cleared away!
As for the cost, you’ll be happy to know there isn’t an extra charge for those multiple drop offs. The flat fee you’ll pay Junk King covers everything from the labor to the transportation to the disposal. It is a fee that is based on how much space your junk will take up on the back of the truck. That means it is about volume and not weight with Junk King. You can get your home to zero waste with a little help from Junk King.
