Are you generating waste that needs to be disposed of per your municipality’s garbage disposal regulations? Did you know every human, business, public facility, government agency, and industrial facility produces waste? In some cases, they generate trash every hour on the hour. Even if you spend every waking hour in your home for the next week, you will have at least two bags of household waste. Basically, there is no way to avoid generating waste, regardless of your dedication.
How Much Trash Do You Generate Each Day?
Do you take frequent drives in the country? If so, the next time you go, you should mentally assess the roadways for signs of trash. In rural areas, there is less trash thrown out along public roads, as compared to city, metropolis, and urban areas. Why is this the case? Think about it, there is a higher level of human activity in built-up areas, compared to rural areas, where the population density is minimal.
In 2018, the United States generated 292.4 million tons of waste. When broken down, each person living in the United States generated 4.9 pounds of waste in 2018, according to the US Environmental Protection Agency “EPA.”
How To Reduce Your Monthly Waste Collection Bill?
Would you like to cut your monthly garbage pickup bill by at least 50 percent? Well, you can with a few lifestyle changes. You like every other human in the world generate a specific volume of waste. The volume of trash one person generates is continuously changing. One month, you produce 4.20 pounds of garbage, the next month you generate slightly more at 4.50 pounds. Is it possible to be more consistent on the volume of trash you generate daily? Of course, but it will not be easy.
With strong dedication, anyone can decrease their waste generation by at least 25 percent. Again, it will not be easy, but it is possible if you set your mind to it. The payoff is a lower monthly waste pickup bill.
Our Cost-Efficient Waste Collection Services?
Do you lack the resources – time, transportation, and manpower – to take your household waste to a local municipality landfill or waste transfer station? When some people do not have access to the much-needed waste disposal resources, they will oftentimes look for other alternatives.
