With each year that passes, and increased awareness through education and media, the citizens of Victoria, in conjunction with the CRD, have had to re-think and re-develop ways of Reducing, Reusing and Recycling unwanted items and materials. This means developing a holistic and proactive plan of reducing amounts of waste in landfill and keeping toxic waste out of our water and soils, keeping Victoria a clean and sustainable environment. As we all know, there is only so much capacity at these dump sites and we are getting dangerously full! With improved methods and systems of disposal and recycling over the years, it has made it easier for my business to keep unwanted items, recyclables, and toxic materials out of the landfill. This is good news for everyone and every living thing!
Here at The Junk Box, we pride ourselves on keeping on top of ways to reduce, reuse, and recycle through available recycling facilities and donation outlets for the less fortunate in our community. Further, we dispose of materials that are considered toxic to our environment at specialized facilities in efforts to reduce the impact or “ecological footprint” we leave on our environment.
