The Benefits of Professional Junk Removal Service in San Bernardino

reduce holiday waste in san bernadino Most people who live in the Inland Empire know that our air quality is not the best in the world. In fact, studies have found that the Inland Empire has some of the worst ozone and soot pollutions in the country. More specifically, San Bernardino and Riverside counties have asthma rates twice as high as the national average. The hundreds of warehouses serviced by thousands of diesel smoke puffing semi-trucks certainly contribute to the serious air pollution problems. However, what many people don’t understand is that landfills in our region also can play a part in damaging the quality of the air we breathe.   A study by the University of Colorado determined that “along with methane, landfills also produce carbon dioxide and water vapor, and trace amounts of oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogen, and non-methane organic compounds. These gases can also contribute to climate change and create smog if left uncontrolled.”  Fortunately, recent environmental campaigns, such as the Right to Zero campaign, have been leading efforts to clean up the dirty air that affects much of the southern California region. After years of advocacy, lawmakers and regulators in Southern California recently passed legislation that will slash air pollution from mega-warehouses by 10 to 15 percent, including the mega-warehouses in the Inland Empire. Part of this emissions reduction strategy will be focused on electrifying all sorts of vehicles, from large semi-trucks to public transit buses, cars, and even port equipment.  Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be similar traction in reducing the air pollution problems that are tied to our waste streams and their end place in the county landfills. In fact, the amount of waste per capita continues to rise throughout the state of California, with southern California experiencing notorious growth in the amount of trash we are sending to landfills each year.  Below, we offer a quick look at the top three benefits that come with hiring a professional junk removal service in San Bernardino. 

Benefit #1: Help to Improve Air Quality

As we mentioned above, there is a direct correlation between the trash we throw away and the air we breathe. Research by the Environmental Defense Fund finds that landfills are the third-largest source of methane pollution in the United States. Furthermore, landfills also emit large amounts of health-harming and even cancer-causing air pollution such as toxic benzene. In San Bernardino County, we only have two active landfills, the Barstow Landfill and the Rialto Landfill. This means that we only have one landfill per 1,060,610 people. In California, San Bernardino County is ranked 33rd of 58 counties in landfills per capita, and 34th of 58 counties in Landfills per square mile. For communities that live in near proximity to these landfills, then, there is an enormous public health risk associated with air pollution. By reducing our waste footprint and making efforts to send less trash to the landfill, we are indirectly helping to improve the toxic air quality that affects much of the region.  The best professional junk removal companies can help individuals, homeowners, and business owners reduce their waste footprint and thus reduce pressure on our already overburdened landfills. Junk King of Inland Empire, for example, offers efficient and affordable junk removal services for both residential and commercial clients in San Bernardino County.  After several years of operation, we have developed close relationships with dozens of recycling centers, thrift stores, non-profit organizations, and other interested parties to make sure that all your used junk is given every opportunity to be donated or recycled, instead of simply sent to the nearest landfill. In fact, we are able to recycle, donate, or repurpose around 60 percent of the junk that we pick up, and we are always looking for strategies to improve that number. We are able to help our residential and commercial clients get rid of regular trash, construction debris, household junk, yard waste, small and medium-sized appliances, e-waste, furniture, and virtually anything that is not classified as toxic waste in an environmentally friendly manner. Whether you are doing an estate foreclosure or are simply trying to deal with the absurd amount of waste that accumulates over the holidays, hiring Junk King Inland Empire can help you deal with that junk without further contributing to the air quality problem in our County.    full service junk removal
