During WWII, Americans were encouraged to plant their own “Victory Gardens.” These were simple front or back yard plots of vegetables and other produce grown by folks who never planted seeds in their life before. The goal was to take the strain off of the big farms who were supplying food for the war effort. The Victory Gardens were a big hit.
Today, folks who are looking for fresher foods have begun their own gardening projects. Nothing says organic like picking a salad from your own backyard. As any decent gardener will tell you, one the most valuable commodities for a home garden is a compost pile. This is essentially all of your biodegradable items like food scraps and coffee grounds that are jammed together into a heaping mound. When these items begin to break down, they release their nutrients to the surrounding soil and you’ve created some very friendly plant fertilizer. If only we could put everything into a compost pile.
Obviously, you can’t put an old recliner into a compost pile and hope it will break down. However, that doesn’t mean that recliner can’t be recycled. You just have to know the right person to call. A qualified San Antonio green junk removal company that offers hauling and recycling services will know just what to do with your big trash items, especially when it comes to recycling. Most of us know about recycling because we have the blue bins for curbside pickup. Since the goal of recycling is to repurpose a variety of old materials, there is a lot more that can be recycled beyond paper and plastics.
Take wood for example. The same wood that makes up the frame of the old sofa or a dresser that you want to toss out can be grinded down and repurposed into new pulp wood. The result? That’s a couple less trees that have to be cut down. More trees mean more oxygen for everybody. It’s a win/win all around.
Most people don’t associate old household junk with the green movement. Actually, the best recyclable material often comes from household items. The same goes for our businesses. Think about all the unused office furniture, files, and equipment that are sitting around your company collecting dusk. Now think about all the reclaimed space you would have when you can toss all that junk out.
The primary reason why most people hang onto their junk in their home or offices is that they simply just can’t physically get rid of it. Think of it this way, if you can carry something into your home, you can carry it out. That might not be the case with kitchen appliances or furniture. That’s when you need to call in the muscle of an experienced junk removal team like Junk King San Antonio. Not only will that have the big truck to cart away your junk, but they’ll also have the man power. You’re just one phone call away from sending your big junk to the big recycling bin.
