Why Not All Your Junk Should Be Taken to a Landfill

People have this mistaken belief that all the junk they get rid of ends up in a landfill. When you get rid of stuff that you don’t need and have a junk hauling company take these away, a lot happens before any of it arrives at a landfill. This is because most junk removal services in Charlotte know that not everything that is disposed of should be taken directly to a landfill.

When you contact a junk hauling company, you need to understand that there are guidelines you need to follow. This is to ensure that when junks will be processed in the safest and most environment-friendly way possible. Some of the guidelines may include segregation of stuff, removal of any dangerous chemicals from your stuff, and being ready when they arrive.

When a junk hauling company picks up the stuff that you are throwing away, the sorting process begins immediately. Some of the stuff that you are having taken away may be moved to a separate box if the team thinks that these may have been inadvertently added to the pile. These are items that may look like valuables and may require a second glance from you.

What Happens After Sorting Junks in Landfill

After sorting junks in the landfill, for example, if there are old clothes that are not useful anymore, you can donate these to thrift shops, shelters, and charitable organizations that can get some use out of them. These are either sold and the money used to help others or these are given away to those who need them.

The same goes for toys, books, furniture, appliances, and other stuff that can still be useful by others. Also includes old items such as old newspapers, bottles, torn clothing, and old magazines.

The recycling facilities that accept these items do what they can to recycle whatever is recyclable. They remove parts that you can recycle and put items that have no use in a pile. These are the items that are for the landfill.

Why These Steps are Important

Most, if not all, junk hauling companies, try to follow this process to help the planet. The amount of trash that is currently in the Pacific Ocean between California and Hawaii is roughly twice the size of Texas.
