Just 20 miles west of Chino Hills, California, a massive, 500-foot mountain rises up into the air. What was once the country´s largest landfill might someday become a new park with bike and hiking trails offering unique views of the surrounding city. The massive Puente Hills Landfill was located near the junction of the 605 and 60 freeways and operated from 1957 until it closed its gates on Oct. 31, 2013. Over almost 60 years of operation, the landfill received around 130 million tons of trash that is still decomposing under a layer of soil and shrubs. In the 1980 and 1990s, homeowners in the nearby communities complained endlessly about odors and pollution from the dump, eventually forcing its closure. Today, however, the City is advancing in plans to transform that mountain of trash into a public park adding needed green space to the Los Angeles metropolitan area.
Though this might certainly be seen as a success story in transforming a polluting landfill into a thriving green space, the southern California region may deal with a lack of landfill space in the coming decades. Instead of investing millions of dollars in public money to create parks on top of artificial mountains, perhaps it is time that we start to find ways to drastically reduce the amount of waste we send to the dump.
For homeowners, business owners, and other residents of Chino Hills, CA, Junk King of Inland Empire is proud to be the top-rated junk removal company in the region. Unlike other junk removal companies that take the easy route of sending your junk straight to the nearest landfill, our company was founded with an environmental commitment as the foundation of our business model. When you hire Junk King of Inland Empire for any type of junk removal service, you will be doing your part to help improve our City´s recycling rate while also diverting junk items that would otherwise end up in our already overburdened landfill system.
Junk King’s Unparalleled Environmental Commitment
Here at Junk King of Inland Empire, we believe that everyone shares in the responsibility of reducing our trash footprint. As the leading junk removal company in the southern California area, we want to do our part to be a good neighbor and reduce the negative effects that come with improperly disposing of junk items.
When you hire Junk King, we guarantee that our junk removal teams will 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. For junk items that are not usable or 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.
Furthermore, our company is dedicated to following all national, state-wide, and local laws and ordinances regarding safe and environmentally friendly junk removal. For example, we take extra precaution to ensure that all of the electronic waste (e-waste) items that we pick up are either donated or sent to local recycling centers. We care about the health and well-being of our community and don’t want to contribute sources of toxic waste that could potentially cause serious health risks to people in Chino Hills and the surrounding area.
Recently, the California state legislature passed a new law requiring the separation and composting of food waste, yard waste, and other sources of organic waste. A recent press release from the Chino Hills City Government reads:
This bill sets goals to reduce the disposal of organic waste in landfills, which includes food waste and landscaping waste items, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, such as methane, and address food insecurity in California. Under this new program, Californians will be required to start separating their food waste, just as most already separate their yard waste.
Here at Junk King, we can help homeowners get rid of bulky yard waste that may accumulate during certain times of the year. For businesses that operate in the restaurant or food-service industries, we can also help you deal with sources of leftover food waste. For any type of organic waste that we pick up, we make every effort to abide by the relevant legislation that ensures that waste does not end up in the local landfill.
