While it may seem like a simple solution to a waste problem, illegal dumping is not as harmless as one may think in the moment. This fast growing issue plaguing the United States not only has a major negative impact on the environment, it can also have a devastating impact on local wildlife ecosystems.
Some folks may be partaking in illegal dumping of junk and waste without even realizing they are contributing to the country- and global-wide issue. The biggest form of illegal dumping includes getting rid of your junk or household waste at any location that is not the correct or accepted dumping facility. This even includes putting your own household waste into a dumpster or commercial dumpster that you are not the renter or owner of.
Another common form of illegal dumping is the pouring of chemicals, fluids, or pesticides down street drains, or even out on the ground. As well as tossing lawn waste and debris into wooded areas.
While these issues may seem innocent enough and easy enough to mindlessly do, they are terrible for the environment and local ecosystems and as such come with fines and even potential for prosecution.
One of the ways that illegal dumping can be curbed is by doing your part to make sure that all of your waste is disposed of properly – including yard waste. A great way to make sure you are disposing of your junk and debris in the proper manner is to contact a junk removal service such as Dad and Son’s. These junk removal services can come to your home and help address the proper way to rid your home of all of the unwanted junk.
Hiring a professional junk removal service will help make sure that all of your waste is taken to the proper recycling facility or dump/landfill site and are disposed of through the proper channels, helping keep the environment a little greener.
