Can you imagine what 14 million tons of trash would look like? It would be a massive pile of slimy, oozy mess attracting all kinds of undesirable vermin. It would also have an atrocious smell. This is why no one would ever think of spending time in a landfill unless of course that landfill has been revitalized. In northern Portland, the St. Johns landfill was effectively shut down back in 1990. It was sealed with a cover system that prevents seepage. Now this 240-acre site is being transformed into a habitat of native wildflowers and rare birds. It is not open to the public yet but soon it could be a destination for birdwatchers and folks who just want to “get back to nature” even if that means standing on 14 million tons of trash!

The transformation of this landfill is not the only one of its kind. Many such areas have been reclaimed and revitalize once the trash has been properly covered. The hope for the future is that eventually landfills will become obsolete. The only way to achieve that zero waste goal is to involve businesses, governments and communities in the effort. It also helps to know where your trash is going. You might not have control over what’s picked up by the municipal collectors but you certainly have a measure of control when it comes to getting rid of your junk. This is why you should hire Junk King Portland job. These are professional junk haulers who make a point of steering clear of landfills whenever possible.
