On October 29, 2012, Hurricane Sandy made landfall near Atlantic City, N.J. This powerful storm cut a path of destruction across much of New England and the Mid-Atlantic area, destroying cars and buildings and leaving large quantities of debris in its wake. The ongoing cleanup process will involve filling hundreds or thousands of dumpsters with waste and wreckage to clear public areas and private lands of trash.
As homeowners and business owners across the state begin to rebuild their property, timely trash removal has become the most important public service that local authorities can provide. Winds of more than 90 mph brought down telephone poles, tore apart fences, shattered vehicles, and spread refuse across miles of coastline. Flood waters carried rivers of debris down city streets. In the wake of the storm, some cities in New Jersey are routinely dumping more than five times their average daily amount of trash, while more and more still piles up in the streets every day.
So what kinds of materials end up in these huge loads of trash? Sandy devastated everything in its path, so in addition to organic waste such as tree branches and plant material, the post-hurricane wreckage includes everything from ruined groceries and merchandise to broken bicycles and mattresses. Some homes have experienced such extensive damage that owners are tearing down walls, ripping up water-soaked carpets, and getting rid of waterlogged furniture as they completely gut their interiors to start all over again.
Many of these materials are recyclable, however, and it would be a waste of valuable—and much-needed—resources to throw all the hurricane refuse into landfills without first sorting them to identify any reusable or recyclable components.
Rentdumpters.com of New Jersey can provide you or your neighborhood with large dumpsters to organize and dispose of your hurricane wreckage. In the aftermath of this disaster, let us help make your cleanup and rebuilding labors as effortless as possible. Call us at (888) 772-7368 to find out rates and sizes for dumpsters in your area.

Each year, businesses, families, and individuals in the United States generate staggering amounts of solid waste. Though many organizations now spread awareness of sustainable consumption practices, many people still do not practice green waste management. Dumpsters are filled with a lot of recyclable waste every day. Here are some things you should know about waste streams and recycling practices.
Americans Don’t Recycle Nearly as Much as They Should
In 2009, Americans generated 243 million tons of solid waste, but recycled barely one quarter of it. Recycling rates here trail behind many other countries, such as Switzerland, South Korea, and Denmark, and we still send more than half of our trash to landfills.
Bottles and Cans Add Up
In one recent year, Americans threw away about 55 billion aluminum cans, or enough to fill a football stadium. All this aluminum could have been recycled and made into new cans or used to make windows, ladders, or a variety of other items.
Construction Projects Generate a Lot of Waste
You have probably noticed the huge dumpsters placed at construction sites or outside homes during remodeling jobs. In total, construction debris makes up almost 30% of the total municipal wasted produced across the nation each year. Much of this material is recyclable wood, but not every project manager ensures that their dumpsters empty at recycling facilities.
Incentives Are in Place to Encourage Recycling
Your building is eligible for varying levels of Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification, depending on what percentage of waste you manage to divert from landfills. For commercial companies and landlords, LEED certification can bring increased business from green-minded clients and tenants.
If you need to dispose of large quantities of debris or waste materials, call RentDumpsters.com of New Jersey at (888) 772-7368. We offer sustainable waste disposal services to residential and business clients, including delivery and removal of dumpsters in various sizes for any scale of project.
