Looking For Holiday Waste Pickup in Worcester?

holiday waste pickup

 

Did you know that Americans throw away 25 percent more trash during the Thanksgiving to New Year’s holiday period than any other time of year? The extra waste that we accumulate during the holidays amounts to around 25 million tons of garbage or about 1 million extra tons per week! From holiday lights that no longer work to an absurd amount of wrapping paper and cardboard boxes, to the colossal piles of food left on the table after the Thanksgiving meal, the excess waste at the end of the year comes with a serious environmental cost. 

 

This short article takes an in-depth look at where the excessive amounts of holiday waste come from. We then offer a few succinct strategies for reducing our holiday waste. Finally, we explain why Junk King of Worchester is the best company to help you sustainably get rid of the excessive holiday trash that you accumulate.

Where Does All Our Holiday Waste Come from? 

 

Driving through a residential area during a late December day, one might find that most homes have a small mountain of trash waiting to be picked up at the end of their driveways or in front of their garages. Like every worker, however, most municipal trash collection companies give their workers a few days off during the holidays. The result is that many municipal waste collection companies find that they simply don’t have enough trucks to get rid of the enormous amounts of trash that accumulate during the end-of-year holiday. 

 

Where exactly does all this trash come from? Consider the following statistics: 

 

  • Each year, Americans discard an estimated 38,000 miles of ribbon, or enough to wrap around the planet. The vast majority of this is consumed during the holidays. 
  • Almost 30 million Christmas trees are also thrown out in late December or early January each year. This bulky source of organic waste presents a serious challenge to trash removal companies, many of whom refuse to pick up Christmas trees after the holiday season has ended. 
  • One recent estimate finds that approximately 4.6 million pounds of wrapping paper are produced in the U.S. each year and that about 2.3 million pounds end its life in landfills.
  • Around 2.65 billion Christmas cards are sold and mailed each year in the United States. This amount of cards could fill a football field 10 stories high. By sending just one card less each year, we could save 50,000 cubic yards of paper.
  • Even though Christmas lights are classified as e-waste, around 500 tons of Christmas lights are discarded in the UK each year. That number is probably much higher in the United States where reliable statistics are hard to find. 
  • Around 40 percent of food in the United States is wasted, and $293 million in food waste is generated during Thanksgiving alone.

How to Reduce Holiday Waste? 

 

So what exactly can we do to reduce our environmental footprint during the holidays? Here are a few simple ideas that will allow you to continue to enjoy the holiday spirit while reducing the amount of trash we generate. 

 

  • Purchase a live Christmas tree that can be planted after the holiday season ends. Instead of releasing greenhouse gasses by decomposing trees, a live Christmas tree will continue to pull excess carbon dioxide from the atmosphere as it grows. This is also a great way to remember Christmases’ past. 
  • Use old newspaper for wrapping. Opening presents is a special part of the holiday season. Instead of purchasing one-time use wrapping paper, consider saving old newspapers throughout the year. It might not look as nice, but it will cut back on waste. 
  • Invest in high-quality LED holiday lights. Cheaper options for holiday lights almost inevitably break down after one year of use. To reduce waste, consider purchasing a better quality light. LED holiday lights are often more durable and will reduce your electricity bill during the holiday season as well. 
  • Don’t throw away your leftovers. Food waste that is sent to local landfills is a major source of methane emissions. Methane is one of the most potent greenhouse gasses driving global change. If you simply can´t eat all the leftovers, consider setting up a composting operation in your backyard. Not only will this cut back on your waste footprint, but you´ll also benefit from rich compost to help fertilize your flower garden next spring!

The Most Sustainable and Environmentally Friendly Way to Get Rid of Your Holiday Waste 

 

Even if you reduce your holiday shopping sprees, plant your Christmas tree in the backyard, and compost all of the leftovers from holiday meals, it is almost inevitable that you will still end up with an enormous amount of excess trash once the New Year rolls around. The holidays are a time for sharing and coming together, and even for the most environmentally conscious family, a bit of waste is essentially unavoidable.

Top 4 Tips for Efficient E-Waste Removal in Worcester

Junk King Worchester

 

Every day, millions of cell phones, computers, TVs, printers, and other electronics and appliances are carelessly discarded as we constantly seek to purchase the latest technological innovation. According to one analysis, the average American spends around $1,200 each year on electronic gadgets each year. If we factor in new appliances as well, that figure most likely is significantly higher. But have you ever stopped to think where all those used appliances and electronics eventually end up? Only about 1/8th of all electronics and appliances are eventually recycled, meaning that an enormous amount of used phones, computers, electronics, and appliances eventually end up in local landfills.

 

This “e-waste” not only takes up an enormous amount of space in our already-overburdened landfills, but it also contains several potentially dangerous components that are classified as toxic waste. Up to 70 percent of all toxic elements in landfills across the United States come from the used electronics and appliances that we throw away, even though e-waste as a whole is only 2 percent of the total amount of waste sent to landfills each year.

So What Exactly Is E-Waste? 

 

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) defines e-waste this way:

 

E-waste”, “electronic waste”, “e-scrap” and “end-of-life electronics” are terms often used to describe used electronics that are nearing the end of their useful life, and are discarded, donated, or given to a recycler. Though “e-waste” is the commonly used term, EPA considers e-waste to be a subset of used electronics and recognizes the inherent value of these materials that can be reused, refurbished, or recycled to minimize the actual waste that might end up in a landfill or improperly disposed of in an unprotected dump site either in the US or abroad.”

 

The used electronics and appliances that we discard are potentially dangerous to both human health and the local environment. Inside our used TVs, computers, phones, and other electronics you can find toxic components that are dangerous to human health, such as mercury, lead, cadmium, polybrominated flame retardants, barium, and lithium. In a landfill, these toxic elements can potentially leach into the soil and even local watersheds.

 

When these heavy metals and other dangerous toxic chemicals reach sources of groundwater, they eventually make their way into ponds, streams, rivers, lakes, and other bodies of water. Eventually, the heavy metals lead to acidification and toxification of important water sources. Not only does this effectively poison the water for animals, plants, and other aquatic species, but it can also create serious health risks to human communities.

 

Perhaps ironically, many of these same heavy metals that poison the soil, water, and air when they are carelessly thrown into the dump, are actually worth millions of dollars! Cell phones and other electronic items have large amounts of precious metals like gold, silver, palladium, and others. Just the cell phones that are thrown away by Americans every year contain an estimated $60 million in gold and silver.

 

Top Four Tips for Responsibly Getting Rid of E-Waste in Worcester 

 

E-Waste

 

E-waste is a ubiquitous source of toxic waste in our nation´s landfills. At the same time, it is composed of heavy metals that are extremely expensive. The combination of these two facts would make you think that there might be added economic incentive for recycling operations to take on e-waste materials. Fortunately, local governments, private recycling operations, electronics retailers, and independent junk removal companies are finally coming together to try and “solve” the e-waste problem. Below, we offer our top four tips for how individuals, homeowners, and business owners can efficiently and responsibly get rid of their e-waste items.

 

Tip #1: Donate your Used Electronics 

 

Despite the enormous growth of cell phone usage across the nation, an estimated 15 percent of adults in the United States do not own a cell phone. In our hyper-digitalized society, this can make it difficult to communicate, manage finances, hold a job, and do other everyday tasks. If you have a used phone, computer, TV, printer, or another type of electronic device, consider donating it to someone in need. For residents of Worcester, MA, the Habitat for Humanity ReStore is a great place to donate used electronic appliances where they will be refurbished and sold at a discounted price to neighbors in our region. This isn’t only a great way to keep your e-waste out of the landfill, but it also is a simple way to help members of our community who might not be able to afford new electronics.

 

Tip #2: Drop Off Your E-waste at Local Recycling Agencies 

 

Another way to responsibly get rid of your used electronics and appliances is to physically take them to local electronic recycling organizations. In the Worcester area, Recycling Works offers free recycling of all unwanted, outdated, or broken electronics, though you will have to take them to their brick and mortar locations.

 

Tip #3: Return Your Used Electronics to the Store Where You Bought Them

 

Another option for responsibly dealing with your e-waste is to take your used electronics back to the store where you originally bought them. Many electronics retail stores now offer free drop-off services for used phones, computers, and other similar items. The stores may try to refurbish the items for resale, or they will find a local recycler. In some cases, you may even be able to sell your used items for cash to the retail store.

Tip #4: Hire a Professional Junk Removal Company

 

Lastly, you can also hire a professional junk removal company to help you get rid of your e-waste items. This is perhaps the easiest and most efficient option as you simply have to call the company and set up a time for pickup. Junk King of Worcester County is the leading junk removal service in the region, offering our services to residents of the towns of Acton, Agawam, Arlington, Ashburnham, Belmont, Chicopee, Framingham, Grafton, Lancaster, Lexington, Oxford, Shrewsbury, Southborough, Springfield, Townsend, Waltham, Westborough, and Worcester. We also service areas as far away as Boston and Middlesex.

 

Hiring Junk King for your e-waste removal makes sense if you have several appliances or electronics you want to dispose of, or if you simply don’t have the time or means to drive your e-waste to recycling centers or donation agencies. Junk King of Worcester can help you get rid of all your e-waste items in an environmentally friendly manner as we maintain a series of relationships with recycling centers and donation agencies around the region. If you are undergoing an extensive remodel or “de-cluttering” of your home, we also offer to both individuals and businesses an efficient and affordable way to get rid of used furniture, yard waste, appliances, hot tubs, construction debris, mattresses, and anything that is not classified as hazardous waste.
