Cleaning out your home is a big job, often performed under the constraint of time. It can feel really good to get rid of things you don’t need; however, not everything you throw away should be destined for the landfill. Some items can be salvaged. Here’s a look at the value of using a waste management company that practices sustainable waste removal:
- Prevents Salvageable Materials from Entering Waste Stream
Unfortunately, most waste removal services consider everything inside a dumpster to be landfill-bound. In the vast majority of cases, however, the waste from basement cleanouts, construction projects, remodeling projects, renovations, and foreclosure cleanouts contains a substantial number of items that can be salvaged or recycled. A responsible waste removal service will employ aggressive recycling techniques to rescue these items from the landfill, thereby doing its part to help the environment.
- Conserves Resources
The most common materials left over at a construction, renovation, or demolition site are concrete, wood, metal, cardboard, and drywall. These residential and construction materials can be recycled in most cases. Whenever these materials are recycled, the demand for developing new sources of the same material are reduced. This, in turn, also results in a decreased consumption of natural resources.
- Protects the Planet
It’s easy to take for granted the seemingly abundant resources we use to build our homes, businesses, and communities. It’s also easy, however, to see the value in practicing sustainable living as the global environment continues to get worse. Sometimes just taking a second look at what you’re throwing away as well as hiring an eco-conscious waste management company can make all the difference.
