Carpet Disposal

Safe, Efficient, and Environmentally Friendly Carpet Disposal in San Fernando Valley

 

Did you know that just 51 percent of floors in U.S. homes continued to have carpet today, according to industry experts? Though carpeting used to be much more popular in homes, today homeowners across the country are increasingly choosing to install hardwood flooring, linoleum, laminate, tile, cork flooring, among other options. 

 

If you feel that your home might benefit from removing that old, stained, musky smelling carpet, what exactly are you supposed to do with those rolls and pieces of old, dirty carpet? Below, we explain why carpet disposal is on the rise, the most environmentally friendly way to get rid of your old carpet, and why Junk King of San Fernando Valley offers the safest, most efficient, and most environmentally friendly carpet disposal service in the country.

Why People are Replacing Carpet in their Homes? 

 

As we mentioned in the introduction, many homeowners across the country are choosing to replace their carpeting without other flooring alternatives. Some of the reasons for this include: 

 

    • An increased interest in healthier indoor air quality: Carpeting throughout the home is often a place where mold and mildew can quickly accumulate. Many types of carpeting are also made from synthetic fibers that can off-gas dangerous volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into the air inside your home. Furthermore, the thick fibers of carpet can also act as a “trap” where VOCs from other sources of your home can settle and later be released during vacuuming. 
    • Loss in Home Value: Though new carpet might look nice in a new home or a recently remodeled home, studies are showing that potential buyers do not put much value in new carpeting. According to HomeAdvisor.com, new carpet in general tends not to affect resale value either way. For hardwood floors, on the other hand, 54 percent of buyers say they are willing to pay $2,080 more for new hardwood flooring.  
    • More maintenance and shorter life spans: Another reason people are choosing to get rid of their carpeting is due to the fact that it simply takes up more of their time to keep their carpeting clean. Even if you regularly vacuum and steam clean your carpeting, carpets generally have a shorter lifespan than other options such as hardwood flooring, tile, etc. 

 

 

 

The Environmental Problems with Carpet Waste 

 

Given these problems with carpeting, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that there is an enormous amount of carpeting that gets thrown away each and every year. According to a recent study conducted by the non-profit organization “Changing Markets:”

 

In 2014, the carpet industry in the United States (U.S.) produced 11.7 billion square feet of carpet and rugs. Approximately 3.5% of all waste disposed in U.S. landfills (4 billion pounds) is carpet discard. Despite the existence of the industry-led Carpet America Recovery Effort (CARE) initiative to responsibly manage carpet waste, an astounding 89% is discarded in landfill, 6% is incinerated, and less than 5% is recycled. Of the 5% that is recycled, only 20% is recycled in a closed loop- i.e. turned back into carpet, the rest is down-cycled into less valuable products. That means that only 1% of carpet discards are recycled back into carpet each year.

 

Carpeting scraps and carpet waste, then, takes up an enormous amount of space in our already over-crowded landfill system. As an inorganic source of waste, carpet waste also contributes to large amounts of methane emissions via landfill gas, thus contributing to global warming.

What to do with your Carpet Waste? 

 

If you live in San Fernando Valley and want to change out the old, dirty, and stained carpet in your guest bedroom, what might be the most environmentally friendly strategy? For carpeting that is still in good shape, you might consider donating that carpet to a thrift store specializing in home furnishings, such as Habitat for Humanity´s Re-Stores. 

 

For carpeting that is no longer useful for donating, some carpeting may be recyclable. A carpet is fully-recyclable when the fibers can be easily separated from the backing and recycled back to carpet and the backing is also recycled. Currently most carpets on the market are only partially-recyclable, which means that only face-fibers or backing can be recycled while the rest finds another use, or ends up in incinerators or landfills. 

 

The most environmentally friendly way to get rid of old carpeting from your home or business is to hire Junk King of San Fernando Valley. We have years of experience in helping individuals, homeowners, and business owners in San Fernando Valley get rid of virtually every type of junk item that is not classified as toxic waste. 

 

In the specific case of carpet disposal, we work with several recyclers in the region, and also sort through the items we haul away to determine what might be able to be recovered for donation.

The Importance of Hiring the Best Private Junk Removal Company to Haul Away your Junk 

 

Getting rid of excess junk is a problem that many people in San Fernando Valley face. Regrettably, many people (and even some private junk haulers) resort to illegal dumping practices. Illegal dumping is one of the main contributors to environmental degradation, including the contamination of streams, rivers and lakes, the contamination of soil and groundwater, the contamination of drinking water, and serious damage to plant and wildlife habitats. Furthermore, having an illegal dump in an empty lot or on a street corner of your neighborhoods is a great way to lower the overall value of your property. 

 

According to a report by L.A. Controller, illegal dumping practices, including the illegal dumping of trash, debris and hazardous items in public areas has jumped 450 percent from 2016 to 2020, with some areas seeing 500 percent to 600 percent increases.

 

Though it might seem that this increase in illegal dumping is due to the stresses on public services caused  by the COVID-19 pandemic, the above-mentioned report also found that “the amount of solid waste picked up (has increased) from nearly 9,200 tons in 2016 to 14,500 tons through the first eight months of 2020.” 

 

For many local governments in southern California, including the communities of San Fernando Valley, the Cities are cleaning up more trash, but not deterring people from dumping it illegally in environmentally and socially important areas. Even when our area´s trash and waste is disposed of correctly by taking it out to the curb for regular trash pick-up, there are further problems that need to be taken into consideration. 

 

Sunshine Canyon Landfill, which is located in San Fernando Valley, has been a source of constant complaint by residents who live in close proximity to the landfill. In fact, between 2009 and 2016, the South Coast air regulators received 9,224 complaints, from mostly Granada Hills and Sylmar residents complaining of horrendous smells and compromised air quality.
