On March 19, 2020, Governor Gavin Newsom issued a stay at home order to help slow the spread of COVID-19. Businesses in California were slowly but surely being deemed “essential” or “non-essential” and for small business owners across our great state, tough times were ahead. It is remarkable how businesses began to adapt. Restaurants closed for in-house dining but remained open for take-out, a few small retailers began offering free delivery and gyms took advantage of the Internet to offer online classes and workouts.
The world throws curve balls and we learn to adapt. It is important to help our local businesses, yet stay safe and adhere to what the CDC recommends.
Junk hauling and removal companies fit the criteria of an essential business and here at Junk Away, we aim to adapt to these uncertain times by putting your safety first.
Why Should I Use a Junk Hauling Company?
Working from home, being cooped up at home during the weekend, and if you have kids, school closures are keeping them at home during the week. With a full household, junk gets piled up more quickly and you might find yourself producing a bit more trash than usual.
According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the total generation of municipal solid waste (MSW) in 2017 was 267.8 million tons (that equates to about 4.51 pounds per person per day). The EPA defines municipal solid waste as various items consumers throw away such as bottles and corrugated boxes, food, grass clippings, sofas, computers, tires and refrigerators. This total of 267.8 million tons of trash was 5.7 million tons more than what was generated in 2015.
Junk hauling companies make sure trash and recycling are appropriately disposed of as trash that ends up in recycling or vice versa, will only add to the unusable waste that is generated. Let’s make sure that extra waste being produced in 2020 get appropriately sorted and leave the hard work for professionals like Junk Away.
