A new law is making it’s way through the White Plains county legislature that would eliminate single-use plastic bags in businesses throughout Westchester. The hope is that customers would start bringing their own reusable bags in order to diminish the use of plastic bags given out at grocery stores, food markets and pharmacies. If a customer still wants those bags, then they’ll be charged an extra 10 cents. That money will go towards offsetting the cost of recycling programs throughout the county. There is already a plastic bag ban in effect in New Castle and other municipalities. These efforts could pave the way for a statewide ban like the one enacted in California.
Initially, this ban might seem like a major inconvenience but it is a small price to pay if it can help improve the environment and allow the state to reach its goal of zero-waste. Are you an active recycler? Taking care of kitchen recyclables is easy but what about the bigger items you’re planning on tossing out. Careful consideration should be given to how they’ll be disposed of. When you hire a company like Junk King Hudson Valley, then you can count on that junk being handled in a very responsible manner.
There are a bunch of junk hauling services who just want to load up their trucks and make a drop off at the nearest landfill. These are the companies who are going to be charging you a lot more than Junk King. That’s because the landfills charge a big price by the pound. Yes, an entire truck would be weighed to see how much it is carrying. Junk King doesn’t operate that way. By making all those drop offs at recycling centers and charities, they can avoid the landfill fees and they’re happy to let you in on those savings. The Junk King pricing policy is all about volume. It is how your junk items will fit on the back of the truck. This is a very fair and affordable approach to this type of work.
