Yard debris, sometimes called green waste or agricultural waste, includes things like grass clippings, flower cuttings, and hedge trimmings.
Unlike e-waste, most of your yard debris is biodegradable and able to be broken down into simple organic byproducts or even used as compost to help grow healthy soil and more plants.
Still, debris removal is definitely one of the most requested services at Junk King, especially when folks have a half dozen or more large trash bags overflowing with leaves at this time of the year.
Going Green with Professional Yard Debris Removal
Calling local sanitation or bringing yard waste to the dump isn’t really the best option because your green waste might not go to the best use and wind up further clogging a landfill somewhere.
Most people don’t even have the cargo space in their car to bring it all to the dump in one trip anyway.
Another option is renting a chipper, but that option’s fraught with its own hazards if you’ve never broken down yard waste like this before. And then there’s the expense – chippers can cost hundreds of dollars per day to rent.
That leaves professional debris removal. This is usually a more affordable option than a chipper, and an eco-friendly junk removal service like Junk King is dedicated to responsible recycling and reuse wherever possible.
Junk King takes a whole host of items loosely categorized under yard waste. Debris disposal includes green waste that you’d associate with landscaping work or weekend projects as well as leftover debris from home renovations.
