Worcester Trash Removal: The Green Worcester Plan

In April of this year, the city government of Worcester, MA approved the “Green Worcester Plan.” This plan is an ambitious and forward-thinking set of public policies and community initiatives aimed at transforming the city of Worcester and the surrounding area into a model for sustainability and environmental friendly livelihoods. According to the government website, the Green Worcester Plan intends to “bring sustainability values to all aspects of city life, including social and economic development. The Plan draws on our city’s unique strengths and challenges, identifies environmental and sustainability priorities and includes short and longer-term actions.” 

This short article will briefly outline some of the principal goals and objectives of this important sustainability plan. We will also look at how individuals, homeowners, and businesses in our community can do their part to support this initiative. Finally, we describe how Junk King of Worcester County is one business helping to move the region towards its sustainability goals by offering junk removal services with an environmental ethic.

The Green Worcester Plan 

All across the country, states, cities, and smaller towns are coming together to create legislation and development policies that focus on a greener future. Some of these policies are focused exclusively on reducing carbon emissions, moving towards a net zero energy future, eliminating waste from our consumer livelihoods, or other environmental goals. 

Since 2019, the city of Worcester, Massachusetts has been involved in a process of designing a multifaceted sustainability plan. The design process allowed for a maximum of public participation, including interviews, a professional, scientific public opinion survey, several online surveys, a public workshop, and a public open house on proposed goals and actions. 

The public opinion survey revealed that almost nine out of ten residents of Worcester (89 percent) consider that it is “very” or “somewhat” important that Worcester become a “green and sustainable” city. Both individuals and businesses are worried about the potential impacts that climate change could cause to the city, and the vast majority of people are willing to support actions that reduce greenhouse gas emissions, mitigate climate change impacts, and move Worcester towards a more environmentally friendly economy and society. 

Though the final draft of the Green Worcester Plan is still in the works, the overarching plan goals include: 

  • Improving the energy efficiency of the city´s facilities and operations, 
  • Reducing the level of greenhouse gas emissions,
  • Improving the water quality in lakes and ponds around the city,
  • Achieving 100 percent renewable energy for municipal facilities by 2030,
  • Achieving 100 percent renewable energy in all sectors, including heating and transportation, by 2045,
  • Increasing forestation via tree planting initiatives in the urban core of the City, 
  • Developing a Complete Streets network for safe walking and biking, 
  • Organizing policies to drastically reduce the amount of waste produced via a Zero Waste Master Plan.

The Zero Waste Master plan is determined to find strategies and implement policies in order to prevent, reduce, reuse, compost, and recycle waste from individuals, homeowners, and businesses in the City of Worcester. More specifically, the local government will be unveiling initiatives in the coming years focused on diverting food waste through curbside green waste collection programs, and increasing trash and recycling containers in public places. 

According to the draft of the Green Worcester Plan: “As part of its commitment to reducing waste, Worcester has enacted an ordinance banning plastic bags and is working on implementing a curbside collection of textiles program.” The key strategies of this move towards Zero Waste will include: 

  • Developing and implementing a Zero Waste Master Plan,
  • Developing a residential green waste diversion program,
  • Planning for sustainable disposal of construction and demolition waste, 
  • Developing expanded city procurement policies to reduce waste and toxics.

What Can You Do? 

For people who live in the City of Worcester, the coming years will most likely reveal innovative public policies that seek to make the city more sustainable in its operations. On an individual or household level, there are several things you can do. Implementing energy efficiency upgrades in your home or business will help to reduce the carbon emissions of the city as a whole. In terms of waste streams, learning to separate your trash will contribute to the city´s stated goal of achieving zero waste in the future. Recycling, backyard composting, responsible consumer behavior can all help to reduce the amount of stress on local landfills and the city´s waste management program. 

But what about those large, bulky junk items that we tend to accumulate over time? Old couches, broken down refrigerators or other appliances, and construction and demolition (C&D) debris from a home renovation eventually need to be removed from homes and businesses. Might there be a way to get rid of these items in an environmentally responsible manner that helps the city move towards the sustainability goals outlined in the Green Worcester Plan?

Get The Rubbish Out Of Your Attic Today

The attic is one of those places in a home that isn’t “visited” on a daily basis. Of course, if there is a bedroom or office up in the attic, then that might be different. But if the attic is used just for storage, then you might only go up there to bring down holiday decorations or to get rid of things from the rest of the house. That is why a trip up to the attic today might have you confronting a lot of rubbish you forgot about. Instead of being overwhelmed by all of that rubbish you can get rid of it with a little help from Junk King Worcester.

The Climbing Crew

When you set up an appointment with Junk King you are going to be assigned a team of movers who will help facilitate the rubbish removal from your attic. This is the crew that will be doing all the climbing up those attic stairs. And yes, they will even climb a pulldown ladder if necessary. Your only part in this operation is to point to all the things that you have designated for removal. That might mean spending some time up in the attic before the crew arrives to make those choices. But once the team knows exactly what they have to bring down, you can literally sit back and watch it all happen.

The cost for Junk King’s service is based on how all that attic rubbish will fit onto the back of the truck. The Junk King crew only has to look over all of the stuff to know exactly how much space it will take up on the truck. These movers are expert with packing the truck and will always strive to get as much as they can into as little space as possible. That will provide you with pain the low end of the price scale.

Getting rid of rubbish from your attic will only take one call to Junk King Worcester. Make that call today.
