CalRecycle program explains zero waste: “To some, it means reducing the amount of waste that is sent to the landfill to zero. In other words, “zero means zero.” To others, zero waste is a process and a philosophy that involves a redesign of products and a redesign of consumption, so that all material goods can be reused or recycled—or not needed at all. We may or may not ever reach zero waste, but we continually work toward the goal. Today, a 90 percent reduction of waste being sent to landfills and incinerators is considered an achievable goal by such groups as the Zero Waste International Alliance and the U.S. Zero Waste Business Council. However, each succeeding increment toward zero requires systematic changes and improvements, and a significant, collaborative effort.”
When it comes to those efforts, the city of Sacramento has certainly been leading the charge but as they mention that can’t do it alone. One terrific partner who has been on board with this program from the start has been Junk King. In fact, they were “going green” long before it was cool!
Junk King dispatches a pair of movers to every junk removal appointment. This is the hardworking team who has been licensed, bonded and insured. That makes them professional right out of the gate. Not only have they been trained in all the proper lifting techniques, but they also know how to spot recyclable materials. Along with the scrap metal and lumber, the Junk King teams can also pull out clothing, furniture and other household goods. Those items might not end up at a recycling facility but if they can be dropped off at a local charity than the same zero waste goal can be achieved.
With Junk King on the job, you won’t have to do any lifting. That will make a huge difference when it comes time to decide what to get rid of. In other words, anything goes! That includes any debris you might have collected around your yards. With Junk King’s help you can greatly improve your curb appeal.
