Landfill free — what’s the big deal?

Junk King has been landfill free since 2011. Being landfill free is not just hype.

Materials are biodegradable if they decay. The process of decay requires bacteria, light, and water. Materials that decay quickly above ground do not decay when buried in a landfill because the landfills lack bacteria, light, and water. For example, paper that decomposes in two months above ground can last 60 years or more in a landfill.


The University of Arizona Tucson Garbage Project is an anthropological study of modern waste disposal. They dug up hot dogs, corn cobs, and grapes that were twenty-five years old and still recognizable.  They dug up readable newspapers dating back to 1952.
