Where Does the Junk Go?

Though the most common method of waste management, landfills continue to be an awkward way to deal with garbage. A number of problems exist with city dumps, including pollution of the local environment and contamination of the soil and groundwater.
Mixtures of garbage and rotting matter together create extremely toxic fluids. Eventually these fluids will leak from any landfill. As a result, the leaking substances harm the nearby flora, fauna, and even saturate the rock and silt above the water table. Though engineers try to stop or slow this leakage, it cannot be stopped completely. In some cases, decades of gathered fluids may break through at once, causing immediate damage.
Rotting food and decaying organic waste also releases dangerous gases. A well-known greenhouse gas, carbon dioxide gets most of the attention. This means it traps heat in the earth’s atmosphere, subsequently resulting in global warming. Methane levels need to be watched closely due to the gas’ high flammability and explosive nature.
Though we can’t stop using landfills completely right now, YYC Junk Removal Calgary will recycle and reuse everything possible. The goal being making landfills our LAST stop, not the first. This not only significantly impacts the environment in a clearly positive way, but also helps improve the lives of people in need.
