Fear of Water Extraction and Mold Removal

What are the three things that strikes fear and disaster into the hearts of homeowners everywhere? Water, mold and fire damage! It doesn’t matter if you have had one minor incident that caused a little damage, how you well you handle the situation can determine how safe and happy your home is in the future.

Although you don’t plan to ever have to deal with it, you should always be prepared. Don’t cut corners to try and save money. Money shouldn’t be your biggest concern at this time. When your home has been compromised by water, fire or mold your home needs saving. So the first and foremost thing that should be on your mind is how to save it.

The best way to ensure your home is properly cared for is to hire local professionals who care. Don’t pick some random company out of the phonebook. Choose a company like 911 Restorations that has a proven reputation of providing speedy and timely services to all Middle TN area residents.

Besides, it gives you greater peace of mind and reassurance when you have one less thing to worry about when dealing with remediation issues.

What’s Happening to the Recycling Industry?

The CEO of the Waste Management company has stated we are in a “Nationwide Crisis” when it comes to recycling. The issue is that waste management companies are not making enough profit from their recycling sectors. Many waste management companies can’t afford to keep their recycling plants active which has led to a large amount closing all over the United States with the extra recycled materials going straight to the landfill. Residential recycling would still be possible without a public service but citizens would have to take more responsibility in disposing of recyclable waste but would lead to an even steeper drop in recycling rates.

The Cause

This is in part caused by lowered commodity pricing for recycled goods and less foreign demand (countries like China who buy wholesale material waste for manufacturing) but part of the problem is completely domestic. Many communities and cities today recycle with little indiscretion which makes the job for processing plants ever longer and more costly. Recycling has become part of almost everyone’s routine but the fact that we don’t use as much discretion as other chores is the root of the problem.

From “Solid Waste Production”. Tim Casse, Vermont State College

Recycling: Anything Goes!

In the 1990’s, cities across the United States wanted to get more of their residents actively recycling. The best way to do this would be to make the act of recycling more easy for the average person. This created a more indiscriminate attitude towards recycling, where people were encouraged to throw all of their recyclable items (and as it turns out, non-recyclable as well) into the bin. This creates problems for recycling plants who have to extend the filtering process since different materials like glass, plastic and paper are being mixed together but must be separate and broken down to be sold as a commodity. Along with this, cities started to make their recycling bins bigger and bigger which allows people to recycle more material but do it more indiscriminately. Many people stopped breaking down larger items like cardboard boxes which now fit whole in the bin. Larger items may also not be 100% recyclable either but even with smaller bins, people were encouraged to just toss it in.

What Can You Do?

To help decrease the burden on recycling plants, the average citizen needs to recycle smarter. Here are some quick and easy ways to do this:

  • know if all the items in your recycling bin are completely recyclable,
  • breaking down larger items to shorten the process at the plant
  • and making sure glass and other easily shattered materials are kept intact when placed in the bin.

Here is a list of what the City of Nashville accepts in your bin:

  • All paper products (cardboard, office paper, etc.)
  • All plastic bottles and containers (beverage containers, detergent containers, etc.)
  • All metal and aluminum containers (food and drink cans)

What shouldn’t go in your bin:

  • Soiled food containers, or containers with food remnants
  • Plastic bags and Styrofoam
  •  Any glass items (need to be taken to a separate recycling center of separated from regular recycling)

Every Day Is Earth Day for Budget Disposal

Planet EarthAlthough we are an ordinary dumpster rental company who will recycle, we are hopeful that the people of Earth can get a handle on the waste we produce. But we have a long way to go. It is crucial that Earthlings come up with a better solution to waste management than digging a hole in the ground and burying it.

  • According to an EPA study, in 2010 Americans generated about 250 million tons of trash and only recycled and composted some 34.1 percent of it.
  • Tennesseeans spend 1.0 billion dollars to landfill 10 million tons of solid waste annually, according to this blog, and Tennessee landfills approximately 8-9 million tons of solid waste and construction waste a year.
  • In fiscal year 2013-2014, Metro Nashville Public Works recycled 56,271 tons of residential waste alone, according to this government report.

How Can You and Your Family Get Involved?

  1. Be a Real Recycler. As homeowners, we know it can be tough to recycle everything, but with a proper system in place, it can become easy. Once you put in place a system of recycling for your family, it will become simple and routine to follow that system and recycle.
  2. Re-Use Plastic Reclosable Storage Bags. Don’t be a one-use family! Those plastic bags are made to last forever. Instead of using them once and considering them dirty and tossing them out, embrace the cost-saving idea that one box of reclosable bags can last months.
  3. Compost. Food waste becomes great soil. If you are not using it, your neighborhood community garden may want it.
  4. Purchase Less Packaging. Fruits and vegetables have a natural wrapping. They do not need to be put on plastic and wrapped in cellophane.

Earth Day starts with us, and needs to last all year long. All of us contribute to waste and therefore the need for sustainable waste management. For America to get where we need to go, it is going to take all of us buying into a system that works.
