Alternatives to Bucks County Dumpster Rentals

Have you heard of “freegans?” Essentially, this is a fancy way of saying “dumpster diver.” These are folks who like to explore dumpsters to see what they can get for free as in food. Before you get grossed out at the prospect, the freegans are quite organized and also picky.

“I’m more particular about food. I’m not so desperate that I’m going to eat an opened bag of chips. I would only be looking for things that are closed,” freegan Kristy told a local interviewer. Some of her proudest moments came when you pulled out whole boxes of granola bars, bread and even bananas. Freegans are also organized on line. There are forums and tweets to follow where they post updates of which dumpster sites have the most potential for goodies. The prevailing wisdom is to look through dumpsters at apartment buildings at the end of the month or dorms anytime! Restaurants and grocery stores are also good freegan zones.

Bucks County Junk Removal

On any given day you can find wild rabbits roaming all around the Delaware Canal in Bristol Township. When the water levels drop, the rabbits come out in full force. You’ll also be “treated” to seeing all kinds of trash left behind by careless visitors. This year, the trash didn’t stand a chance when confronted by the volunteers who turned out for the Delaware Canal Cleanup Day. This state park stretches from Bristol to Easton. Along that path the hard-working pickup crews found jugs of motor oil, milk cartons, a metal microphone stand and several other pieces of heavy machinery and plenty of trash.

“We’ve found computer monitors in here, too” said Donna Lee of Newtown Township. She’s a proud member of the Friends of the Delaware Canal. “People really should take more pride in their communities.”

A lot of the trash was blown into the park from nearby highways, unsecured trash bins and shopping center parking lots. That means that plenty of folks are tossing out trash without thinking twice where it might end up. That’s not good for Bucks County and it certainly isn’t good for those of us who take pride in our property. Even if you do keep your home clean, there is always the need for some occasional junk removal.
