Sustainable Waste Management: Giving Used Items a New Life

With millions of individuals across the U.S. lacking access to proper recycling, The Junkluggers, an eco-friendly alternative to conventional junk removal, is aiming to provide sustainable disposal services for homes and businesses nationwide. 

Gail Tavill, Franchise Owner of The Junkluggers, joined Jeff Wooster, Global Sustainability Director at Dow, to discuss how the process works and what they are doing to help change the mindset of so many – from a linear “take-make-dispose” system to a circular one where materials are treated as valuable resources that can help create smarter solutions for our future.
