Where Does My Junk Go?
When you call a junk removal business, they come over to your place, take your junk away, and that’s that. Right? Well, for you, that might be the end of it, but for junk haulers, the haul is just the beginning.
Don’t you ever wonder what happens to the stuff that you have hauled away as junk? Don’t you ever wonder where that old couch, that box of old toys? Or that broken old washing machine goes once you haul it away? To help you see what happens to the junk, here is a list of places where your junk goes.
Donations – like they say, one man’s junk is another man’s treasure. If some of the stuff you throw away still has some use in them, like clothes, these will be donated. These can go to shelters, thrift stores, and other similar establishments that can make good use of your old stuff. This means that the old stuff you have hauled away will be sorted and those that can be donated are given to those who can still use them.
Some of the stuff that are taken to charities and thrift stores as donations include old toys, old clothes, and old books. Even old appliances that can still be fixed and furniture that can be repurposed are donated so as to reduce any waste and to give people useful but budget-friendly items they can buy.
Recycling facilities – this is one of the first few places where most junk go to. If it can be recycled, it will be sent to a recycling facility. If an item is deemed unusable and cannot be donated, it is checked to see if it can be recycled.
Some items, such as mattresses and old sofas, may seem unrecyclable, but in reality, they are. These have components in them that can be reused, such as the springs, the wood frames, and other similar parts. Electronics, anything with wood in them, and old magazines or newspapers are also taken to recycling facilities.
Junk yards – there are junk facilities that can make good use of some of the stuff that you dispose of. These junk yards take items that recycling facilities find too tedious to handle for recycling and they remove anything that is of value from these things. Metals, plastics, glass, and other items that can be sold off to recycling facilities are removed. Parts that are non-recyclable are then put aside for proper disposal elsewhere.
Chemicals that are found inside some of the stuff that you dispose of are set aside carefully and disposed of properly. These include coolants found in refrigerators and lead found in old televisions. This move is to help ensure that it is all safely disposed of in accordance with the law and to help protect the environment.
Landfills – this is the last destination for junk that you throw out. This is where items go when all options have been exhausted. When all that is left are items that cannot be donated, recycled, or gleaned of anything useful, the landfill is the last destination for junk that is thrown out. As much as possible, junk removal services in Alpharetta and elsewhere try to avoid bringing in piles of stuff to a landfill.
Junk hauling companies try to exercise care and use environmentally friendly process when they do their work. This means minimizing the amount of junk thrown away in landfills. This helps reduce the amount of pollution that the planet receives while making sure that some of the old stuff some can use it again.
