At our current rate of consumption, life on earth is unsustainable. It’s a fact. Sadly, the amount we consume dwarfs in comparison to what we throw away. Recent studies indicate that Canadians produce more garbage per capita than any other country on earth – nearly 2.7 kilograms per person per day. In Toronto, even with a 60 percent diversion through green bins and recycling, city residents toss out a collective average of 2,200 metric tonnes per day. It’s why we at Junk Out are firm believers in recycling, even though our business is junk removal in Toronto.
When you’re looking for convenient, affordable junk removal services, we are the name to turn to. Our garbage bin rental cost makes us the best option for clearing out junk across the GTA. However, when you set your mind on recycling and donating before you rent your bin from us, you might find you don’t need as big a bin rental as you previously imagined. That saves you money, whether you’re looking at a bin for your junk removal Etobicoke efforts or for any of the other many reasons people rent garbage bins from us.
When you reconsider the value someone else might put on the junk you’re planning on throwing away, it forces you to do a self-audit on the junk you’re throwing away. Setting things aside for recycling or repurposing is a smart way to reduce the amount of materials and items you classify as junk. That helps to keep useful items from winding up in the area’s overtaxed landfills, or on barges that ship Canadian garbage to other countries. Many items you previously considered tossing can have a second life in the hands of someone else. As part of our own recycling efforts, Junk Out has diverted over 2,000,000 pounds (907,184 kilograms) of “junk” and turned it into materials that were either recycled or donated.
We all have a duty and obligation to try to reduce the amount of waste we toss, whether that’s organic items through green bin programs or larger junk we accumulate as the result of our consumerism. We believe it’s not only a great way to save you money when you’re considering junk removal Toronto services, it’s also the right thing to do for the planet.
