Since its opening, the 16th Street Mall in downtown Denver has attracted plenty of tourists and locals alike. It’s become the hot spot for dining, shopping and simply hanging out with a good friend. Because of all the business that it does and all the people that it attracts on a daily basis there is a need for proper garbage management at the mall.
That’s why the 16th Street Mall implemented a recycling program utilizing 10 separate containers strategically placed throughout the mall area. These containers allow anyone to drop off recyclable materials just as they would in their own home. The accepted items include the usual suspects of glass bottles, plastic bottles, aluminum cans, newspapers, magazines, phone books, and brown paper bags. What you can’t throw out in these specific recycle bins are paper cups, plastic cups, takeout food containers, plastic bags, cardboard milk or juice cartons or any food waste. Of course, not everyone is aware of these rules and just sees a recycle bin as another trash container. This makes the off-site sorting a bit more of a challenge.
While this is a great idea for the mall it’s not really a practical approach for all your recycling needs. After all, if you have home recycling then you don’t really need to take your materials down to the mall for a drop off. Also, what about all of those large bulky items that you’d like to recycle such as old furniture or kitchen appliances? To handle those items you need to contract a special team of experienced junk haulers like Junk King Denver who are we knowledgeable in eco-friendly practices.
For folks living in Denver it’s easy to “go green.” That’s because of the strong municipal sponsored recycling programs. But as mentioned they can only go so far in terms of what the weekly pickup can handle. Just because you have an old sofa or refrigerator you want to get rid of doesn’t mean it can’t be recycled. As you shop for junk haulers the first question you should ask is where will your junk end up? An eco-friendly junk hauler should be able to tell you that they’ll be diverting most of your trash to the proper recycling center.
Not all recycling centers are created equal. Some are designed just for a specific type of material such as plastic or newspaper. But for those big items you might need a center that can handle scrap metal, wood, upholstery and fabric. It could mean a separate facility for each one of those items. The good news is that you don’t have to spend your precious free time driving around Denver to make those drop-offs when you’ve got an experienced crew like Junk King who can handle it for you.
The goal of any eco-friendly waste management program is to divert as much waste and junk away from the landfill. Even with the new regulations pertaining to landfill construction this is definitely a case where less really is better.
