Anaheim Junk Recycling

recycling junk anaheimHave you ever taken a moment to think about where your trash ends up? We’re not talking about after you’ve scored the perfect “basket” when you toss out your soda can but what happens after that garbage has been picked up by the helpful garbage men. If you pitched in and sorted your recyclables then clearly that trash is bound for a second life. It will be reincarnated as another roll of paper or magazine or cereal box. Anything beats dumping in a dump, right?

Actually, that’s not just a good idea it happens to be the law as well. Way back in 1989, the state legislature passed Assembly Bill 939 which set a goal of having up to 50% of solid waste diverted away from landfills. It’s kind of hard to enforce a “goal” unless you write another law. Enter Assembly Bill 341 which was passed back in June of 2012. With this bill, commercial recycling became mandatory. This doesn’t mean that businesses were left high and dry to get the job done. There have been plenty of incentives, rebates and tax credits provided to help them get the recycling program fired up.

One local Anaheim company that takes recycling very seriously is Junk King North Orange County. They didn’t need to have a law to make them eco-friendly. That has been part of their operating philosophy since they began operations. Keep in mind that it’s not just the Junk King business office operations that involve recycling but it’s the actual way they conduct business. Every time Junk King picks up a load of stuff that a local resident wants thrown out they are going to make every effort to see that junk gets recycled. The goal of the state might be 50% but Junk King has managed to hit over 60%. Yes, up to 60% of everything they collect is recycled and we’re not just talking about paper and plastics but things like kitchen appliances, furniture, concrete, wood and even mattresses. Pretty much anything you’re throwing onto the back of the Junk King North OC truck can be recycled.

Technically, you won’t be “throwing” anything onto the truck because Junk King doesn’t want you lifting a finger. They are more than happy to do the work for you. That includes climbing up and down stairs and all the heavy lifting. Are you ready to clear out your garage? Clean up your backyard? Make room in your closets? If so, then the only call you need to make is to Junk King.
