When it comes to getting rid of the junk that you have piling up around your home or business, most people don’t understand that there is a whole science behind waste management and disposal. Though most of us understand the basics of separating our recyclables from other types of trash, we probably don’t know how to legally get rid of a broken appliance, how to empty a refrigerator or air conditioner of its refrigerant before disposal, or how to compost yard waste. In this short article, we will take a look at the importance of proper waste disposal, different strategies for dealing with some types of junk items that you may want to get rid of, and why renting a dumpster might be the most efficient, affordable, and legal way of dealing with your waste streams.

Say Goodbye to Waste Worries: How to Locate the Best Garbage Dumpster In Your Area
Did you know that businesses that don’t properly recycle their electronic waste items may be facing a fine of up to $25,000 in the state of California? Or what about the recently passed legislation that makes it illegal to send yard waste and debris to the landfill? Waste management practices in California is an increasingly tricky subject that is continually evolving and developing new standards and regulations. For example, the Responsible Battery Act was recently passed in the State Senate and established an extended producer responsibility plan covering all battery types and products with embedded batteries.

The importance of proper waste disposal
One of the reasons that our self-service dumpster rentals are so effective, is because it ensures that all of your waste items get dealt with in the most environmentally friendly way possible. Unlike other junk haulers out there, our professional junk removal teams go the extra mile to sort through the items we pick up in order to determine what can be recycled, donated, or otherwise repurposed. In fact, we are able to ensure that at least 60 percent of the items we pick up and haul away are kept OUT OF our local landfills.
In the specific case of hazardous waste items such as e-waste, our company abides by all relevant federal, state, and local regulations, laws, and ordinances. We will NEVER simply haul a truck-full of junk to the nearest landfill. Rather, we work with dozens of thrift stores, charities, drop-off centers, recyclers, and other similar companies and organizations to ensure that the vast majority of the junk we haul away is dealt with in the healthiest and most environmentally friendly way possible.
Landfills: Where can you legally dump trash?
We also understand that some people in San Fernando Valley may consider that getting rid of their own junk could save them a few pennies. If you have a heavy duty pickup truck and a trailer, you might be able to haul away your old furniture, yard debris, construction and demolition debris, and other larger an bulky junk items. The question, however, is where you are going to dump the stuff you are hauling? Most landfills have increasingly strict rules and regulations on what types of items they can accept. As we mentioned in the introduction, most types of organic waste can no longer be sent to California landfills, and the same goes for most appliances, electronics, and other sources of e-waste.
Given these difficulties, renting a dumpster from Junk King offers the easiest and most straightforward way for getting rid of all types of junk without risking a fine or being turned away at your local dump.
