How Businesses and Individuals can Reduce their Trash Footprint in Fort Worth

 

Trash Footprint

 

Homeowners, residents and businesses in Fort Worth, Texas generate approximately 784,008 tons of municipal solid waste annually. That equals out to an average of 2,562 tons of junk each day. As of 2014, about one quarter of that trash was either recycled, reused, or otherwise diverted from the landfill. Though the Fort Worth City Plan Commission has adopted a new waste management plan that intends to drastically increase the amount of waste that is diverted from our area landfills, demographic trends are putting more and more pressure on our area landfills. 

 

According to recent U.S. Census Bureau data, Fort Worth is the second-fastest growing city in the nation. With a population that grew to 927,720 in 2020, Fort Worth is experiencing an annual growth rate of over 2 percent each year, and by the year 2025, Fort Worth is projected to grow to over 1 million people.

 

Despite well-intentioned attempts to increase the recycling rate, the amount of available space at Fort Worth’s Southeast Landfill, located on Salt Road off Interstate 20, is decreasing at a faster rate than desired. Reducing pressure on the City´s main landfill is a responsibility shared by everyone who enjoys living in Fort Worth. Below, we explore a few different ways that businesses and individuals can reduce their trash footprint.

Strategies for Businesses to Reduce the Amount of Junk they Send to the Landfill 

 

A recent study looking at the waste management problems faced by the City of Fort Worth found that businesses and industries in the City are responsible for two thirds of the city’s total waste production. Obviously with a strong economy and booming business growth, this shouldn’t come as a surprise. However, many consumers in Fort Worth are beginning to look for companies who have a dedicated commitment to the environment. Reducing the amount of waste that you send to the dump might actually be able to help businesses connect with a growing consumer population looking to support “green” business practices. 

 

A few different strategies that can be used by businesses to reduce the amount of waste they send to the landfill include: 

 

 

  • Do an audit of your business facility: To efficiently reduce your company’s waste footprint, you need to know where the waste is coming from. A simple audit will allow you to identify supply-chain-relevant items that contribute to your waste footprint, and develop the relevant programs to reduce that waste. 
  • Reevaluate your packaging practices: Incredibly, packaging accounts for almost a third of U.S. municipal solid waste. Finding ways to reduce the amount of packaging waste your business creates is one of the most straightforward and impactful ways to reduce your waste.
  • Hire the best junk removal company: Many businesses in Fort Worth might simply not have the time or resources needed to implement a company-wide recycling and waste reduction program. If this is the case for your company, hiring Junk King of Fort Worth offers a simple and efficient way to deal with your waste streams in the most environmentally friendly way possible. For several years now, we have been the region’s top-rated junk hauling company, and for good reason! Besides offering the most affordable prices, the absolute best customer service, and the most efficient junk removal service, we are also one of the few junk haulers that has an environmental ethic at the foundation of our business practice. 

 

 

Our junk removal teams take the extra time to sort through the junk items that we pick up. If the items are in decent shape, we make sure to send those items to thrift stores, donation centers, charities, and others who can help to get used furniture, appliances, and other household items into the hands of people who need them in our community. If the items are simply beyond repair, we also sort through them to ensure that every recyclable item is recycled.  Today, we are proud to say that up to 60 percent of the junk items we pick up either get recycled, donated, or otherwise repurposed. That percentage is almost three times higher than the city’s current waste diversion rate!

 

Strategies for Residents and Homeowners to Reduce the Amount of Junk they Send to the Landfill 

 

Homeowners and residents of Fort Worth can also do their part to reduce the stress on our regional landfill. One simple way to reduce the amount of waste you send out to the curb every week is to implement a backyard compost pile for your food scraps, leftover meals, and yard waste. 

 

Furthermore, finding ways to recycle other items that cannot be composted is another simple way to reduce your trash footprint. The City government of Fort Worth recently launched the Fort Worth Garbage & Recycle app that you can download for free at this link. The app provides residents with reminders for waste collection days, including garbage, recycling, and bulk and yard waste. Notifications also include updates on learning events offered by Solid Waste Services, including backyard composting classes, and special events. The app can also help you determine if an item is recyclable and how to dispose of it properly.

Lastly, residents of Fort Worth can also depend on Junk King to help them get rid of all their trash in the most environmentally responsible way possible.

Top 3 Tips for How to Get Rid of your Yard Waste in Fort Worth, Texas

Yard Waste Cleanup

 

Did you know that yard waste accounts for almost 14 percent of the municipal solid waste (MSW) generated each year in the United States? To put that number into perspective, that amounts to about 33.4 million tons of waste, or around 216 pounds of waste per person per year! Sources of yard waste include grass, fallen leaves, tree branches, brush trimmings, and other sources of waste that come from regular landscaping tasks. Grass clippings that come from regularly mowing the lawn is the most significant component of yard waste, accounting for almost half of total yard waste by weight. When measured by volume, fallen leaves are the biggest component, as any homeowner who has painstakingly raked and bagged leaves during the fall time knows. 

 

Unfortunately, an enormous amount of yard waste ends up in our nation´s already overcrowded landfills. Those bagged leaves, grass clippings, fallen branches, and other sources of yard waste are actually the third largest component of generated municipal solid waste in the nation. Only paper products and food waste account for more MSW each year. 

 

In this short article, we will briefly explain some of the main problems that come with sending your yard waste to the landfill, and then offer three simple ways to get rid of your yard waste in a more efficient and environmentally friendly way.

The Problems that Come with Sending Yard Waste to the Landfill 

 

As any homeowner knows, getting rid of those fallen leaves during the autumn months can be a pretty huge task. The same goes for cleaning up your yard after a major storm blows down several tree limbs around your property. Yard waste is a type of “organic waste” which is defined as

“any material that is biodegradable and comes from either a plant or an animal. Biodegradable waste is organic material that can be broken down.” 

 

In nature, organic waste slowly decomposes, eventually returning to the soil. In healthy ecosystems, organic waste can enrich soil fertility and play an important role in supporting the community of organisms in the soil. When sent to a landfill where plastics, metals, and other types of inorganic waste abound, organic waste causes several serious problems as it breaks down. 

 

Due to a lack of oxygen and other important factors, sources of organic waste, such as yard waste, actually break down through a process known as anaerobic decomposition when it’s buried in a landfill. Those grass clippings, tree limbs, and bagged leaves produce acidic chemicals which combine with liquids in the rest of the inorganic waste to form potentially dangerous leachate and landfill gas.

 

Methane is one of the main components of landfill gas, and is one of the most potent greenhouse gasses. According to one recent study from the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA),

“municipal solid waste (MSW) landfills are the third-largest source of human-related methane emissions in the United States, accounting for approximately 14.5 percent of these emissions in 2020.”

Top 3 Tips for Getting Rid of Yard Waste in a more Environmentally Friendly Way 

 

yard waste removal

 

If bagging your leaves and grass clippings to be sent to the landfill causes so many environmental issues, what other strategies can homeowners use to get rid of their sources of yard waste? 

 

Tip #1: Simply Let your Yard Waste Decompose in Place 

 

One simple and efficient way to drastically reduce the amount of yard waste you send to the landfill is by simply letting your yard waste decompose in place. Instead of raking and bagging the leaves that fall in the autumn, let them naturally decompose into the soil around your yard. Leaves usually take somewhere between 6 to 12 months to break down into compost on their own. Similarly, grass clippings can be allowed to naturally decompose, simply by taking the bag of your mower. If a strong storm knocks down major tree limbs, you can chop those limbs into smaller places and place them around the bases of trees where they will slowly decompose as well. 

 

Tip #2: Create a Backyard Compost Pile 

 

Of course, not everyone will prefer the untidy and disordered look of a landscape that may come with the simple approach of letting your yard waste decompose in place. In some areas of Fort Worth, homeowners associations (HOA) may actually have neighborhood ordinances requiring certain standards of landscaping practices. 

 

If you have the space, creating a backyard compost pile can drastically shorten the amount of time that it takes for sources of yard waste to decompose into fertile compost that you can then spread around your landscape. Instead of decomposing slowly over a year (or more), compost piles can turn grass clippings, fallen leaves, and even small branches and wood chips into fertile soil amendments that can be used for vegetable gardens, fruit trees, flowers, and more. 

 

Composting is defined as the controlled decomposition of organic matter by microorganisms into a fertile topsoil. In recent years, many cities and towns have begun to implement city-wide yard waste recycling programs. This is one of the reasons why the total amount of yard waste sent to landfills across the country has decreased by about 50 percent in the last two decades. 

 

In the City of Fort Worth, yard trimmings and brush are collected separately from garbage. These sources of yard waste can also be taken to a facility where they’re turned into mulch. Any Fort Worth resident can then pick up bags of mulch for free at any of the city’s four Drop-Off Stations.

 

Tip #3: Hire Junk King of Fort Worth for your Yard Waste Removal Teams 

 

It is important to note that not every homeowner, business owner, and resident of Fort Worth will have the time, space, ability, or interest to manage their own backyard compost pile. Fortunately, Junk King of Fort Worth offers the most sustainable and environmentally friendly ways to deal with your sources of yard waste. 

 

If you don’t like the idea of having dozens of bags of leaves and grass clippings sitting in your yard for several days waiting for your regular trash pickup, Junk King is here to help you. 

 

For several years now, we have been the region’s top-rated junk hauling company, and for good reason! Besides offering the most affordable prices, the absolute best customer service, and the most efficient junk removal service, we are also one of the few junk haulers that has an environmental ethic at the foundation of our business practice. 

 

Our junk removal teams take the extra time to sort through the junk items that we pick up. If the items are in decent shape, we make sure to send those items to thrift stores, donation centers, charities, and others who can help to get used furniture, appliances, and other household items into the hands of people who need them in our community. If the items are simply beyond repair, we also sort through them to ensure that every recyclable item is recycled. In the specific case of yard waste, we ensure that all of the organic waste we collect are sent to composting facilities so that this waste is not sent to our area landfills. 

 

Junk King of Fort Worth offers its services to both residential consumers and throughout the City. We are proud to provide the region’s top-rated, most efficient, and most environmentally friendly junk removal services to the Fort Worth area, including the communities of Arlington, Fort Worth, Forest Hill, Haltom City, Kennedale and Richland Hills. 

 

For large landscaping jobs where you plan of creating large amounts of yard waste, we also offer self-service junk removal through our MINI dumpster rentals.  These dumpsters are ideal for DIY landscaping projects, and can give you a simple way to store your yard waste while cleaning up the space around your home or business.
