Junk King San Francisco Uses New Mini Dumpster to Help Make Way for a Cleaner and Greener Tomorrow
Dense fog and rolling hills set a scenic and recognizable backdrop to the beautiful city of San Francisco, California. Often referred to as The City by the Bay, San Francisco is known for its cool summers and its iconic landmarks like the Golden Gate Bridge, the former Alcatraz Penitentuary, cable cars and Fisherman’s Wharf.
Originally founded by Spanish Colonists in 1776, this natural harbor was eventually conqured by the United States in 1846. With the Gold Rush of 1849, San Francisco saw rapid growth. Thanks to the Gold Rush, San Francisco became the largest city on the West Coast during that time.
While the great 1906 earthquake and fire destroyed much of the city, San Francisco proved its resiliency and soldiered on through the 20th century to become a center of wealth, military power, progressive culture and high technology.
As one of the largest natural harbors in the country, San Francisco became a necessary fixture in WWII. According to history.com, as WWII transitioned to the Cold War in 1945, the city hosted the conference at which the U.N. Charter was drafted and continued to draw workers to develop technologies for the nuclear age.
San Francisco, which is both a city and a county, is home to a unique blend of intelligence, creativity and innovation. The San Francisco Bay Area is home to 35 colleges, including University of California at San Francisco, the University of California at Berkley and Golden Gate University and boasts a thriving economy.
San Francisco has long been a city that attracts industry leaders and change makers. This thriving city is also the headquarters of five major banking institutions, including Wells Fargo, and various other companies such as Levi Strauss & Co., Gap Inc., Dropbox, Reddit, Square, Dolby, Airbnb, Twitter, Pinterest, Yelp, Craigslist, Pacific Gas and Electric Company and many more. Cost of living is relatively high when compared to the rest of the country, however, the high levels of education reached by the vast number of degree holding residents makes way for a higher-than-average salary as well.
Green Living in San Francisco
San Francisco is credited as having begun the charge to combat climate change in the United States. From its ban on plastic bags in 2007 to its recycling regulations, San Francisco is making changes, not just promises. San Francisco has been named the greenest city in the United States and Canada by a Siemens study.
According to San Francisco’s environmental webpage, the city has been able to reduce its carbon footprint by 28 percent from 1990 to 2015 even though the population increased 19.5 percent and the GDP (gross domestic product) increased 78 percent. San Francisco, as the leader in environmental concerns, shows that it is possible to make changes despite a growing population.
“The majority of San Francisco’s emissions are from electricity and natural gas used in buildings and fuel used in cars and trucks. The remaining emissions are from the landfilling of organic waste and municipal operations.”
Recycling and Waste Reduction in San Francisco
California leads the way in recycling across the country and “is the undisputed queen of recycling cities in the country, with an 80 percent success rate at keeping discards out of landfills as of 2013,” according to takepart.com. San Francisco’s strict laws and bans have made recycling and composting mandatory for its residents and is helping the city become a Zero Waste city by its 2020 goal.
San Francisco Landfill Solutions
San Francisco’s lead priority in its green initiatives focuses on increasing its diversion rate from landfills. San Francisco is now leading North America in its recycling and compost rates as it has achieved 80 percent landfill diversion rates.
“Recycling and composting is not only good for our environment, it is also good for our economy,” said Mayor Edwin E. Lee. ”Recycling alone creates 10 times more jobs than simply sending refuse to the landfill, and I applaud Recology, the Department of Environment and San Franciscans for reaching this record milestone of 80 percent diversion.”
