How To Hit Zero Waste In Your Home

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.

Garbage Removal Dayton

There will come a time in everyone’s life when they’ll have to deal with garbage overflow. Typically, this might happen after you’ve moved into a new house or are moving out of the old one. Certainly, on the day after Christmas you’ll find trash bins packed to capacity with wrapping and boxes. Often the remedy for this garbage overflow is to cram as much as you can into the trashcan and hope for the best! What about all the things that can’t fit into the garbage can? Technically, the Dayton trash removers are restricted from picking up anything that isn’t packed in the can. If they make an exception for you, then they have to make an exception for everyone. There just won’t be room on the truck! Does this mean you would be stuck with all that extra garbage? Not if you bring in Junk King.

Junk King are the professional junk haulers who have been helping folks with garbage overflow for ten years. Many Dayton apartment managers have Junk King on speed dial. They know they can depend on a fast pick up for all the abandoned furniture, carpets, drapes, bedding and appliances left behind by a tenant. Imagine what kind of clean up Junk King could do at your home?

You’ll be provided with two strong movers who will be doing all the lifting and loading for you. There is no need to pull anything out of your house and drag it down to the curb. Just leave it right where it is. When the crew from Junk King shows up, you’ll go through your home and point to all the items you want removed. The crew will then provide you with an estimate based on volume. How much space will your junk take up on the truck? Since the crews make several stops during the day, space on the truck is a premium. In other words, they’ll want to pack things in tight and that means you can benefit from the low end of the price scale!

Also included in the Junk King package is their eco-friendly disposal policy. Junk King wants to make sure that anything that could benefit a charity or be recycled will find its way to the proper spot. For those times when the Dayton garbage removal can’t cut it, you can count on Junk King to get the job done.
