1-800-GOT-JUNK? conducts waste stream analysis every two years, allowing us to monitor and track our landfill diversion rate. Our most recent audit was completed in the first quarter of 2011. The audit data comes from randomly selected franchises located throughout the United States and Canada.
61% of materials we collect avoid landfill through reuse, recycling and waste-to-energy (incineration). More information is available which describes our audit methodology including a breakdown of indirect vs. direct recycling and waste stream composition.
Our corporate values shine through in how we live and work every day. With our belief that what we do today will make a difference for current and future generations, we are committed to the continuous improvement of our environmental performance through understanding our impact and identifying opportunities for improvement. Our customers, both residential and commercial, also want to know, “What happens to the junk?” We strive to develop programs that support our ability to accurately answer this question. We take ownership of our customers’ junk and do everything we can to divert our waste stream from landfills by reusing, donating, and recycling as much as possible.
