According to a recent statement by The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, Londoners have saved 30 million pounds last year by opting to recycle rather than reaching for the rubbish bin. Moreover, he highlights that we can save up to 320m pounds by 2015 by doubling our recycling efforts. It is estimated that about 80% of typical bin content can be recycled.
The cost of getting rid of rubbish is increasing rapidly due to landfill sites filling up and landfill taxes coming into force. Currently it costs 25% more compare to last year. Increasing landfill tax forces to increase price for waste collectors and disposal companies. These charges are often passed to the customers.
At London Junk, we manage to offer the best price over our major competitors by recycling more than 70% of the waste collected. Recycling saves money and it saves the environment. Because we have managed to keep competitive in the market we are able to pass the advantage to our savings on to our loyal customers. We try to recycle everything possible such as cardboard, metals, wood, glass and many more. Not only that, we also often donate items that are in good condition such as furniture, books, clothes, shoes, toys to charities and salvage shops, so we not only help save the planet we also help out those in need.
