Landfills are seeing less garbage and recycling plants are reaping the benefits due cleanup companies like AZ Junk Removal. Phoenix has been undergoing an initiative for over five years, spending millions of dollars each year to Keep Arizona Beautiful. Many large corporations and even small mom-and-pop companies have joined the movement to make it such a success.
AZ Junk Removal has been selected as our top service company for the month of May because of their active approach to making a difference. Sure — we get it — they get paid to pick up junk because people illegally dump in commercial locations or neighborhoods, but that’s not why we selected them.
Last month they were on-site at a customer’s home for a regular junk pickup. The customer had no idea AZ Junk recycled and donated unwanted belongs; He just called them because they were first on the web under hauling and junk removal services. But as he was watching them load up his unwanted items from his garage he noticed they were putting all the metal items and appliances to the side of the truck while they were tossing everything else into the truck. When he asked why, they explained they would be unloading the recyclables off first, and therefore they would be loading them last.
Another service they offer is Bagster pickup. Bagsters are heavy duty bags you can purchase from Home Depot or Lowes, take them home and fill them up, then call Waste Management to schedule a time for them to pick it up. However, there are limitations to their pickups; this opens the door for AZ Junk to step in and offer to pick up the bags while sorting recyclables and donatable items, avoiding unnecessary items ending up in the landfill.
In a day in age when everyone is so quick to throw everything in the bulk trash pickup pile or haul it all the landfill, AZ Junk has done it right for over 10 years.
Not only do they recycle items from most all their pickups but they also donate items by dropping them off at the nearest Goodwill.
This is not only important for us as residents who would rather not see our towns trashed with clutter but it’s also necessary for economic growth gained through local tourism. Phoenix ranks among the top 10 growing states and top places to visit in the country; this is partly why Phoenix has bounced back so well from the downturn in 2008. It’s difficult to win bids for large events like we’ve seen over the last five years.
So far Phoenix has enjoyed a great three year run of hosting among the largest events in the country: Superbowl, college football’s National Championship and the NCAA Final Four. The 2015 Waste Management Golf Tournament was single handily responsible for over 220 million dollars in economic growth according to WM’s sustainability report. Phoenix is becoming the go-to location for these world renounce events, and it has something to do with our clean and beautiful state.
Our goal is to see Phoenix flourish through continued tourism as well as people choosing to relocate here. As more people call Phoenix their home we will see a larger and more equipped workforce which in turn will attract revenue generating corporations.
Keep up the good work AZ Junk, we salute you!
