Austin Junk Hauling: What's In Our Oceans?

As frequent readers of our blog know, illegal dumping has become a huge problem in part because of shady junk removal companies. These companies promise to get rid of your junk for extremely low prices. They’re able to offer these low prices because they don’t take the junk to the landfill. Instead they’ll just dump it. Then the junk ends up forming dangerous illegal dumping sites and polluting waterways including the ocean.

This infograph from Keep the Coast Clear shows what the organization has cleaned up from our oceans in the last 25 years.

But not all of this trash came from unethical junk hauling companies. The majority of it came from people simply littering. That’s right our oceans are getting trashed simply because people can’t be bothered to dispose of their trash properly and we think that stinks!

So what can you do?

It’s simply. First take a stand against litter. Promise to never litter and speak up when you see others littering. You can also vow to join the 10 on Tuesday campaign that encourages people to pick up 10 pieces of litter every Tuesday.

Second, if you decide to hire a junk hauling company, make sure you hire a legitimate one that will make sure your junk gets recycled. Remember if the price sounds too good to be true, it probably is!

And if you need an Austin junk hauling company, Dirty Work can make sure all of your old junk gets recycled. You can find us on Facebook or Twitter.
