Fairfax County is a thriving region economically. And part of that is reflected in the sheer number of commercial and business establishments located throughout the county.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, for example, as recently as 2020 it was estimated that in Fairfax County there were 31,769 “employer establishments” or places with employees. And these establishments accounted for a total employment 672,100 people.
And the one thing that almost every one of these more than 30,000 locations have in common is the need for junk removal.
When the Junk and Debris Becomes More Than You Want to Manage Yourself
We generate a great deal of waste – at home, at work, and through manufacturing and building.
For example, just our daily trash, or garbage, waste is substantial. According to the EPA, the average person creates 4.4 pounds of solid waste each day.
And as one waste management site points out,
“Coffee cups, Styrofoam plates, and thin, film-like plastics are among the commonly used items that are often found in offices and also cannot be recycled.
Each year, the average office worker uses 500 coffee cups, all of which are sent to landfills. Whether Styrofoam or paperboard affixed with a leak-proof plastic liner—recycling the cups is incredibly difficult to be profitable for the industry. Over the course of the workday, miscellaneous materials like these often find their way into the trash over the recyclables.”
When it comes to commercial or industrial waste, the most common components include dirt and gravel, masonry and concrete, scrap metals, trash, oil, solvents, chemicals, weed grass and trees, wood and scrap lumber, and similar wastes.
The types of junk and waste material that end up in the nation’s solid waste stream are numerous.
Unlike residential trash, junk, and debris, commercial junk can vary widely from one business to another. Construction debris is a big factor in junk removal as are used pallets and unusable, old office furniture and equipment. Sometimes there can be an exceptionally large quantity of paperboard debris that has to be removed and disposed of. And the list goes on.
The real problem arises when a business finds itself with more junk or debris than it can fit into its commercial waste bins or dumpsters. And, many times, disposing of it themselves is either problematic or just not feasible.
So, what do businesses do when they need reliable junk removal and on short notice?
(Almost) Everything Comes with Options, Including Commercial Junk Removal
While some things like pricing or proper disposal of hazardous wastes are not negotiable, getting rid of your (non-hazardous) commercial and business waste, junk, or debris has options.
Simply put, they are:
- Do it yourself
- Do it yourself with outside help
- Hire someone to do it all for you
The first option, and one that many large enterprises often turn to, is to simply have their own personnel load, transport, and dispose of their business junk and waste. And they often do so in their own trucks or with trailers.
But if you’re not Northrop Grumman, General Dynamics, or even NVR home construction, you likely do not have the staff nor other resources to do it all yourself.
If you’re a smaller business in, say, Woodbridge, for example, and you have a load of old pallets, cardboard waste, and a few broken shelving units to get rid of, what are you going to do? You’ll have to rent a truck unless you have a full-size pickup truck. And unless you have enough employees on hand to do the loading and so on, you may have to do all that yourself. Not very practical…
On the other hand, if you had a roll-off dumpster rental delivered to your place of business, you could take your time loading all that junk and debris and then simply make a call to have the debris bin picked up by the vendor. Convenient, relatively easy, and you still did it yourself with a little outside help.
Option number three, however, is by far the most convenient and oftentimes the most cost-effective, even if the fee is higher than that of a dumpster rental or the cost of doing everything yourself.
Why is that? Because any time you or your employees spend moving junk, loading junk, and especially driving to a waste disposal facility and unloading is time, you must pay for. And it is productive time lost from your business.
With a full-service commercial junk removal option, you do little more than make the call and point out where the junk is.
And when you make that call to Junk King Fairfax, we’ll not only do all the heavy lifting, but we’ll even sweep up after ourselves before we leave.
Calling on Junk King is also the best way to ensure that you’re getting expert and professional commercial junk removal since we are the premier junk hauling service for businesses throughout the greater Fairfax region.
