What’s Junk Got to Do With It?

We decided when we started 123JUNK to espouse a three-point initiative that includes: Donate – Recycle – Dispose in order to help protect our fragile environment. What you might consider junk could just be mucking up our earth—but it doesn’t have to.

History of Environmental Protection

Some of the statistics about waste are shocking. According to Duke University’s Center for Sustainability & Commerce, “Approximately 55% of 220 million tons of waste generated each year in the United States ends up in one of the over 3,500 landfills.” They go on to report than municipal waste landfills account for 22% of methane emissions.

How 123JUNK Solves the Problem 

By culling out items that can be reused in some way, 123JUNK greatly limits the volume of items we take to the landfill. Reusable items like furniture, household goods, clothing and toys are made available for our charitable partners who return them to families who could use them. Repurposable materials like metals, paper and electronic components are taken to a local recycling center. And only then do we take whatever is left over to the dump.

Although we cannot solve all of the world’s problems, we are doing our little bit here at home. If you’re in Maryland, Northern Virginia or Washington D.C. and would like to “join our cause” and donate your unwanted goods or schedule yard waste pickup, please contact 123JUNK. We’ll be glad to schedule one of our big red trucks to come to your home or business.

What’s junk got to do with it? Everything, to us.
