The problem of waste is apparent around the world. It has been estimated that the average American tosses about 4.5 pounds of trash per day. So if you wish to make an effort to reverse this in your household, kudos to you! Remember that if you have any household items that are difficult to haul away, such as an old mattress or some electronic waste, don’t dump them. Rather call in Little Green Junk Waste Removal Company and we will take it away with no extra effort required from you.
The concern with the amount of waste your household has generated may have been brought on by your observations during the winter holiday season. The extra trash that piles up in your home is not a figment of your imagination. It has been estimated that we throw away 25% more trash during the weeks between Thanksgiving and New Year compared to other times of the year. Our trash cans are filled with discarded wrapping paper, ribbons, bows, shopping bags, and of course, food waste. All these contribute to the massive increase in the trash that finds its way into our landfills.
If you have taken a look at the overflowing trash bins in your home and decided that this will not happen again next holidays, there are some simple ways to reduce this waste.
So what about the rest of the year? There are many ways of reducing the amount of trash that you generate at home, and they are easy to implement.
Plastic is mostly non-biodegradable which means that it does not decompose when it is thrown out, but rather lasts forever. It causes extensive environmental damage both on land and especially at sea, causing the death of many marine animals.
It makes sense then that cutting down on single use plastic products at home will reduce the amount of plastic waste you generate. One of the most common items of plastic used at home is the plastic shopping bag. This is an easy one to solve as these plastic bags can be replaced with reusable bags which are available at all our stores. All you have to do is to remember to take them with you to the grocery store. This will immediately cut back on the plastic you need to get rid of.
Consider all other single use plastic containers, such as bottled water, and see whether you can reduce your use of these. Consider installing a water filter at home to reduce the need for buying bottled water. Replace plastic bottles with reusable ones for your water requirements when you on the go to cut down on your plastic waste.
