Crossing all of that yard work off of your list sure feels good. But what do you do now that you have a half-dozen garbage bins full of yard waste and need yard waste removal pronto? Does your local municipality even pick that kind of stuff up?
The Problem with Local Pickup
The truth is that many municipalities put limits on how much yard waste they’ll pick up, and yard waste itself can surprisingly cause a lot of issues for the environment when disposed of improperly.
The Sierra Club found that improperly disposed of yard waste can cause leachate and methane gas to escape into the atmosphere or seep into the soil and do damage there as well. None of that is too hot for the environment.
Fortunately, Junk King is committed to turning yard waste into manufactured topsoil and compost whenever and wherever possible. Considering that an estimated quarter-billion tons of municipal solid waste is generated every year in the United States that’s very reassuring.
The thing that might catch some people by surprise is that two-thirds of that quarter-billion tons of municipal solid waste is what’s known as organic waste, which is another name for yard waste or green waste.
Yard Waste Removal: Does Junk King Take?
The green waste and composting experts say that by weight grass is easily the biggest share of yard waste removal.
It also turns out that leaves are the biggest share of yard waste removal when you measure things by volume. Anyone who’s tried to stomp down leaves into one of those flimsy black plastic bags knows this to be the case.
The truth is that yard waste is composed of a whole lot of things – grass, leaves, brush, soil, and landscaping debris. Junk King takes all of that stuff plus stumps, fencing, firewood, lumber, and old window frames.
Since Junk King takes just about every kind of yard waste imaginable, you can even have your shed demolished, broken down, and taken off your hands. Junk King recycles, reuses, and donates wherever possible to give new life to no-longer-needed or discarded stuff.
With an old shed, for instance, it might be the case that components like the shed’s wood, plastic, frames, and plasterboard can be put to another use down the road. That’s a lot better than this stuff winding up in a landfill, which would likely be the final destination for yard waste if it goes through municipal pickup.
