It’s time for a reality check with regard to recycling in Phoenix. The majority of homeowners are doing a great job recycling all of their kitchen items like plastic, paper, aluminum and glass. However, that’s not enough to bring up the city’s diversion rate. That would be the amount of junk that is kept out of local landfills. According to a new report, the national average diversion rate is around 35%. Here in Phoenix that number drops to 14%. Part of the reason has to do with apartment buildings being excluded from recycling. There is also an overall lack of eco-friendly waste programs throughout most of the state. Then there is the abundance of landfill space. It seems like it’s just too easy to make those junk drop offs at the dumps. One company who has always been dedicated to junk recycling is Junk King Phoenix. If you want to jumpstart your personal recycling plan, then Junk King Phoenix are the perfect partners.
Since they began collecting junk over 10 years ago, Junk King has established a very robust recycling program. Each one of their franchises are directed to set up partnerships with local recycling centers and charities. The crews are then trained to sort through all the things they are collecting to determine which pieces could be repurposed. All of this work is included in the complete junk removal package. The result is that Junk King has maintained a national diversion rate average of around 60%. That is literally tons of unwanted rubbish being kept at a landfills every single day.
