Recycling is part of our daily lives. Even if you don’t toss a water bottle into a recycling bin today, you probably opened a container made from recycled paper or drove on a road made from recycled asphalt. Recycling touches a lot of our world. How much do you know about recycling? You’ll know a lot after checking out these fun facts:
Recycling is all about saving energy. How much energy gets saved when you recycled one ton of paper? That comes out to 682 gallons of oil, 7,000 gallons of water and 3.3 cubic yards of landfill space. That’s a lot of saving on many levels.
About paper… 95% of all the data in the world is still stored on paper. And most of that data is never looked at again. That means there are tons and tons of paper sitting in filing cabinets, binders and storerooms that will just gather dust instead of being recycled. Yes, emails might have changed the way we communicate but we’re still using a lot of paper. Tough habit to break.
Plastic water bottles make up a large portion of the recycling stream. When you recycle a single plastic bottle, you’re conserving enough energy to light a 60-watt bulb for up to six hours. Remember, it takes less energy to recycle an item than it does to create it from scratch. That’s the whole game, right there. In the next hour, Americans will have thrown away 2.5 million plastic bottles. What happens if they end up in a landfill? Literally nothing because it takes 500 years for a plastic bottle to decompose.
There is also a real danger to animal life when we don’t recycle. Thousands of marine creates die by mistakenly swallowing a plastic bag. They think it looks like a jellyfish. Tragic. It’s a good enough reason to ban plastic bags.
What about soda cans? Every year, we toss out enough soda cans and bottles to reach the moon and back… 20 times. That’s a lot of cans out there.
How are you doing with your home recycling program? It is easy to get into the habit of recycling but you shouldn’t stop at plastic, paper and aluminum. You can also recycle all the junk you want to clear out of your house. At least you can if you hire Junk King Philadelphia for the job. These professional junk haulers have partnered up with several recycling facilities around the area and are happy to drop off your stuff to those centers. Keep up your recycling and get your junk repurposed with help from Junk King Philadelphia.
As you get ready for the holidays, you might be reminded of all the things that need to be done around the house. That starts with bringing out the decorations. Often, those boxes of lights and ornaments are kept in the attic or down in the basement. Since last year when they were tucked away, you could have piled up a lot of stuff. Do you need to hold onto those things? Perhaps the best way to start your holidays is to bring in Junk King to help remove the clutter and open up the space in your home!
Start with your closets. This is where you’re going to be hiding your Christmas presents, right? You’ll definitely need more room in there! With Junk King on the job, you won’t have to do any lifting. If you pull things out of the closet, just leave them right outside the door and when the crew starts working, they’ll pick it all up from the spot. That applies to anything else you want to get rid of. If you have a couch down in the basement or a fridge out in the garage, then that is where the crew from Junk King will go.
That same team will also go outside if you need yard waste removal. This kind of cleanup can make a huge difference before the decorations go up. After all, if you want folks to admire your Christmas lights, you don’t want them to see all your rubbish.
If you were to take care of this type of junk removal on your own, you could end up sacrificing an entire day. Between renting a truck, finding friends to help with the loading and then driving around looking for the proper disposal site you can say good-bye to Saturday! Instead, Junk King can be in and out of your home in under 20 minutes. It doesn’t take long to load up stuff. As for the drop offs, that happens long after Junk King has left your property.
Speaking of drop offs, you’ll appreciate the fact that Junk King goes the extra mile to make sure nothing they collect goes to waste. Your old things could find a new home with a charity. That’s perfect for this time of year! If you want your holidays to be free of junk, then put Junk King on the job.
A college freshman is certainly going to be busy in the next coming days. They have a campus to figure out, classes to coordinate and a new roommate to get along with. Plus there is that whole thing about maintaining a high grade point average. It’s a lot of pressure. Fortunately, mom and dad are standing by to offer support, cash and the occasional care package. Nothing like some baked goodies from home to help a college student get over the orientation period. Back on the home front, you’re making adjustments as well. There is that whole empty nest syndrome to contend with. If you suddenly find yourself in a quiet house, you might not know what to do with yourself. Luckily, that won’t last for long. Time to tackle all those projects you’ve been putting off while getting your kid ready for college. First up: a clean out of their room helped by Junk King.
It will be easy to remove the trash that your young one left behind. It is when you have to contend with the stuff that won’t fit into your garbage can that you’ll need to bring in Junk King. The two-man Junk King crew who will be assigned to your clean out will be able to take away any piece of furniture you want to move out. Yes, the Junk King team will be happy to climb the stairs and navigate those items out of your home. They can also take away any boxes of clothes, books or other items that will no longer be in use. Does this mean that your kid won’t have room to come home to? Sooner or later, that is the plan, right?
After Junk King has helped with your kid’s room clean out, they can do the same thing for the rest of your house. You can make room for a home office, gym or crafting corner. When Junk King is done with the inside, they can help get your exterior ready for fall by removing all the stuff that has piled up during the summer. Junk King can take away an old lawnmower, patio furniture or grill. Whatever you want gone can be tossed onto the back of the Junk King truck.
As an added bonus for hiring Junk King, your discarded items could make their way to a charity or recycling center. This means you’ll be doing your part to keep the Philly environment as green as possible. Your total home clean out is just a phone call away with Junk King.

The moment that thousands of anglers have been waiting for is once again upon us: Opening day for trout season. The harsh winter isn’t going to slow down the stocking of rainbow trout just in time for some excited fishermen.
“Anglers are very excited,” said Andrew Desko to a local online newspaper. He’s the regional education specialist for the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission at Tyler State Park and knows all about the trout situation in Bucks County. “It’s steeped in a lot of tradition – just to get to go out and fish with fathers, brothers, sisters, mothers, families.”
This year, both brown trout and rainbow trout will be released at two areas along Neshaminy Creek. According to the Park Department’s release: “The first is the section of Neshaminy Creek that runs adjacent to Dark Hollow, a popular hiking destination in the park that is shadowed by overhanging rock cliffs called the Neshaminy Palisades. The second is between the base of the dam above the Tyler State Park Causeway at the center of the park and where Neshaminy Creek intersects the Richboro Road Bridge.” Now you know where to go for fresh trout.

Every town has its local legends. For Bensalem, that legend involves Benjamin Franklin. As any school kid will know, Ben set out to prove that lightening had electric currents running through it. To demonstrate his theory, Ben flew a kite with metal objects attached during a thunderstorm. Here is where the legend part comes in: It has been said that Ben conducted that experiment right here in Bensalem while visiting his buddy Joseph Galloway at the Growden Mansion. There are some historians who would dispute that claim but what do they know? Bensalem is also home to the Neshaminy Mall which no one disputes was the first shopping mall in the country. Take that, Mall of America!
As a small town, you could say that Bensalem has a lot of curb appeal. That’s because residents and business owners take pride in their properties.
