Junk Removal Pasadena: Top 3 Tips for the Greenest Ways to Deal with Your Waste

Did you know that in 2019, 42.2 million tons of material from California were disposed in out-of-state and in-state landfills? Though the state of California is often heralded as a leader in environmentally friendly and sustainable policies and legislation, there are still several serious problems when it comes to our collective ecological footprint.

For example, we have a per resident disposal rate of 6.7 pounds per resident per day. This means that the average Californian throws away around 50 percent more waste each day than the average citizen of the United States. Though our recycling rate of 37 percent is also significantly higher than the national average, our stated goal was to achieve a 75 percent recycling goal by 2020. Due to our inability to reduce the amount of trash we produce and to increase our overall recycling rate, many of the regional landfills across California are quickly filling up and a landfill scarcity crisis is looming.

Due to these issues, in recent years the California state legislature has passed important laws such as SB 1383 and SB 1335 in an attempt to reduce waste and build new markets for recycled materials. Though improved policies and legislation can certainly play a role in reducing our waste footprint, there are steps that all of us can take to quickly reduce the amount of trash that we are sending to the landfill. Below, we offer three tips for how individuals, homeowners, business owners, and other residents of Pasadena can deal with their waste in the most environmentally friendly way possible.

Junk Removal Pasadena Tip #1: Separate your Organic Waste

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the estimated 35.3 million tons of wasted food that went to landfills in 2018 represents 24.1 percent of all municipal solid waste that is landfilled. When you factor in yard waste and other sources of organic waste, over a third of the items that get sent to the landfill are organic waste that we could easily divert from the landfill.

Organic waste such as kitchen scraps, fallen leaves, grass clippings, and wasted food are one of the main culprits in the growing methane gas emissions that emanate from landfills. When organic waste slowly decomposes in a landfill setting, it releases an enormous amount of methane gas, which is one of the most potent and dangerous greenhouse gasses.

For this reason, California State Law SB 1383 was signed into law in 2016 with the goal of reducing short-lived climate pollutants such as methane emissions created by organic waste. This landmark bill mandates that every city (including Pasadena) provide organics collection services and requires residents and businesses to divert organic waste from landfills. SB 1383 objectives include achieving a 75 percent reduction in disposal of organic waste by 2025.

In practical terms, residents of Pasadena can help this initiative by dutifully separating all of their organic waste into the proper bins for recycling. Furthermore, if you have space in a backyard, you can even consider starting up a backyard compost pile that will turn your kitchen scraps and leftover meals into rich compost that can be later applied to your garden and other areas of the landscape around your home.

For larger sources of organic waste such as those dozens of bagged leaves that get bagged up every year, you can also consider hiring Junk King of Los Angeles. Our junk removal professionals can help you get rid of all of your yard waste, including downed tree limbs, grass clippings, bagged leaves, and more. We also are committed to working with the citywide composting operations in order to ensure that your sources of organic waste are properly diverted from the landfill as outlined by the above-mentioned state initiatives.

Junk Removal Pasadena Tip #2: Don’t “Wish-Cycle”

Wish-cycling occurs when residents of Pasadena put something in the recycling bin and hoping it will be recycled, even if there is little evidence to confirm this assumption. For example, the vast majority of the plastic items that we put into the recycle bin are eventually either landfilled or incinerated. In recent years, China and other Asian countries have essentially stopped receiving most types of plastic recyclable items. Because of these bans, most plastics that get sent into the recycle bin are never recycled but are rather sent straight to the dump.

Furthermore, when people improperly put items into the recycling bin, this can cause serious problems for the recycling company. One way to do your part is to learn what items can and cannot be recycled and to take the time to properly separate your trash into the proper bins. For example, dirty diapers will never be recycled and should definitely be kept out of your blue or green bins.

For bulky junk items such as hot tubs, couches, and large appliances, these items generally need to be taken apart before they can be used by recyclers. If you don’t like the idea of breaking down your old hot tub for recycling, you can hire Junk King of Los Angeles. We know the best way to recycle virtually every type of junk item, and we can ensure that your bulky junk items get sent to the correct recycling organizations in order to keep them out of the landfill.

Get Rid Of The Rubbish Before You Move

Planning is what it takes to make a move to a new home successful. Not only do you have to plan out when you’re going to pack but also all the switching you have to do of utilities, cable companies and other bills that get mailed to your home. It also helps to have a plan for what to do with all your unwanted rubbish. As you pack up your home, you will no doubt uncover a lot of things you can do without at your new place. There’s no reason to load up the moving truck with things that you would like to get rid of. A better approach would be to set up a session with Junk King Los Angeles to get rid of the rubbish before you move out.

The Removal Crew

Junk King is going to send over two-man team who will become your private removal crew. This will be the squad that will help you get rid of all the unwanted stuff that don’t want to pack up. That can mean several boxes of clothing, books, toys and other household goods. It can also mean bigger items like sofas, recliners, futons and mattresses. You can also turn over all your unwanted electronics to Junk King.

Everything that Junk King removes from your home will have a chance to be dropped off at a charity or a recycling center. This is all part of Junk King’s responsible disposal policy that they put into place when they started collecting junk back in 2005. In that time, they have managed to divert up to 60% of all the things they collect away from landfills. That is good for everyone!
