Eco-Friendly Waste Disposal: How To Do It Right

We are all becoming more and more aware of how our actions effect the environment.  This includes being concerned about what happens when we have a big waste disposal job.  We all know recycling is important and creating even more landfill waste is something most of us don’t want to do. 

Finding a company that can handle your waste disposal needs in an environmentally friendly way is very important and it’s a job that needs to be done the right way.

Sort and recycle

The first step to eco-friendly waste disposal is sorting through the waste to separate what can be recycled, sold or donated.  We are all familiar with local recycling efforts that include paper, cardboard, plastic, aluminum, and glass. But lots of other items can be recycled too.  Probably more than you think. 

Things like other metals, textiles, items with motors and cords, yard waste, appliances, construction waste and even electronics can all be recycled.  Sometimes one person’s junk is another person’s treasure and if your waste disposal job consists of some items that can truly be useful they can be donated to an appropriate organization, keeping them out of landfills.

This is where hiring the professionals can be a big help.  They save you time by sorting through the waste for you at their facility, making your big clean up job quick and easy.  You also won’t have to spend time finding facilities that will take what you have and even more time and gas hauling everything yourself. 

An eco-friendly waste disposal company will know exactly what to look for and they already have a network of reputable, licensed facilities that can take it.  Having one company that can handle just about everything is not only convenient but helps keeps prices reasonable too.

Truly eco-friendly waste disposal

There’s more to being eco-friendly than just getting rid of waste in an environmentally responsible manner.  What a company does in its day to day operations matters too.  Being green should be part of the company culture.  Running energy efficient facilities, recycling, and making use of renewable energy are just a few of the things companies all over the country do every day to reduce their impact on the environment. 

Junk King was founded in 2005 with an environmentally friendly approach to waste management in place right from the start.  And we’re always looking for ways to improve.  One way we’ve done that is to use trucks that run on renewable and eco-friendly biodiesel fuel to help minimize our impact on the environment.
