How To Get Rid Of Almost Anything
American homes generate more than 250 million pounds of garbage each year. With the sheer volume of waste being produced, it’s unlikely that all of it is being disposed of properly.
We’ve become better at separating garbage into materials that can be recycled and those that go into landfills, but there’s still a lot of waste that ends up in the wrong places. Why? Because, in many instances, people aren’t aware of what they should do with it.
Waste that is improperly disposed of does more than take up space in landfills. It can create serious health and environmental problems by allowing hazardous materials to enter groundwater and soil.
The following guide from Junk-ITT, details the proper way to dispose of virtually any type of waste generated by the average American household. If you’re not sure whether something should go in the garbage can, the recycling bin or be hauled away by a reputable junk removal service, consult this chart for assistance.
