Upcycling Is Uplifting for Orange County



One man’s junk is another man’s treasure. You have heard that saying. At OC Junk Hauling we live it every day. Picking up unwanted, no longer needed items, we do our best to recycle or upcycle as much as possible to organizations that can reuse or repurpose the materials.

You know about recycling but not upcycling?

Upcycling makes a positive impact on our environment by removing and thus interrupting a stream of global garbage.

Whereas recycling requires energy or water to break down materials, upcycling focuses on the creativity and craftsmanship of individuals to see another purpose for the objects at hand.

Why recycle/upcycle

According to the Trash Talkin’ blog:

  • Each day, people in the U.S. throw enough trash away to fill 63,000 garbage trucks.
  • Each year, Americans generate between 250 and 400 million tons of garbage — all of which requires landfill space.
  • The United States has over 3,000 active landfills and over 10,000 “old” landfills. All create hazardous gas and could be a danger to groundwater.

What can be recycled?

  • Aluminum can be recycled plenty of times with no loss of quality.
  • Cardboard boxes, such as cereal boxes, pizza boxes, cracker boxes, and any other type of paper packaging.
  • Milk jugs, laundry detergent bottles, plastic bags, water pipes, refillable bottles, bottle caps.

What can be upcycled?

  • Old or damaged furniture. For example, a dresser could be repurposed into antique bathroom vanity.
  • Shutters can be turned into sofa table tops or headboards.
  • Galvanized metal trash cans, being replaced by rubber ones, can be upcycled into planters for flowers.

Your trash-destined items can become treasured items for other people, once we at OC Junk Hauling evaluate them for repurposing. Then we will take them where they will still provide use and value to someone else in the community. It is good for you, it is good for them, it is good for the community. And it lessens dependence on landfills.
