Another 1-800-GOT-JUNK? happy customer.
When you book your rubbish disposal in Sydney online, you save $10.
1800-GOT-JUNK? specializes in full-service, easy and efficient rubbish removal for Sydney homes and businesses. We provide fast, reliable, same-day service, and will take any amount of junk you have, whether it’s a small pile of items or an entire floor of furniture, from wherever it is. You don’t have to lift a finger.
People often call us when they’re moving house or flats, and we get a lot of calls from people who need help with furniture removal when they’re downsizing. People who need a sensitive hand dealing with a deceased estate also call us often.
For commercial jobs, we find ourselves involved in clearing out all kinds of things: demolition waste, redundant marketing material (for retailers), office furniture, and electronic waste to name a few.
We make every effort to dispose of your items in an environmentally and socially responsible manner whenever it’s possible, and strive to provide rubbish removal and disposal Sydney is proud to use!
Other than our commitment to recycling or donating as much of what we pick up as possible, we consider our commitment to excellent customer service the one thing that makes us different from all the other rubbish removal services in Sydney.
We all know that trades businesses are notorious for not turning up on time, if they turn up at all! At 1800-GOT-JUNK? Sydney, we make a point of calling ahead and letting our clients know when we are going to be there. Your time is valuable, which is why we commit to a two-hour promise window so you know when we’ll be around to pick up your junk. And we try our best to stick to our word.
We also have a 24-hour call centre staffed by Aussies! Not many people know that our call centre is actually based in Vancouver. Most of the Australian staff are in Canada on a working holiday visa, making the most of the skiing and boarding that Vancouver has to offer. It’s a great team and they do an amazing job.
Lastly, we’ve heard that our Truck Team Members are easily the best looking and the best dressed rubbish removal experts in the industry – but you’ll have to book us to have your junk picked up to see for yourself!
We make it so easy to get rid of your rubbish. Here’s how it works:
By Ben Pearson
I started my career as an Environmental Engineer and then eventually moved into General Management. I have worked across a variety different industries ranging from fresh produce to management consulting.
Taking over the Sydney business of 1800-GOT-JUNK? was a chance to combine my environmental training with my general management skills.
I’m pretty excited that I have the opportunity to have a genuinely positive impact on the environment by diverting rubbish away from landfill and finding an alternative home for it.
The junk removal and disposal industry is really interesting to me because I consider it to be somewhat of a barometer of the nation’s economy. In the same way that retail sales or consumer debt are used as barometers of economic performance, junk can be used as measure of cyclical renewal. If people are throwing stuff away, they have either purchased a new house or apartment or they are refurbishing. It’s a unique indicator of all of these trends. I think Alan Kohler should start using a Junk Index!
While we see the usual stuff - unwanted furniture, like desks, bookshelves, wardrobes, beds, mattresses, appliances, old fridges, washing machines, and garden waste, we’re also find that we’re collecting and increasing amount of e-waste. With the advent of Smart TV’s, a lot of people are getting rid of their old television sets.
Businesses, too, are concerned with proper disposal of electronics and e-waste because electronics have the potential to contain commercially sensitive information. We’ll be partnering with IT companies to provide secure data destruction for that very reason.
Possibly, the most unusual junk we’ve collected at 1800-GOT-JUNK? Sydney is a fully authenticated piece of Simpson’s artwork. I think it was Lisa Simpson. It never stops amazing me what gets brought back sometimes.

Moving house is one the few life events that forces you to make hard decisions about what to keep and what to throw away. As we move through life we inevitably accumulate stuff that we no longer have a use for. At 1800-GOT-JUNK? we recognize that moving house and de-cluttering go hand in hand-that’s why we partnered with PODS.
Together, 1800-GOT-JUNK? and PODS will provide a one-stop moving shop. This is how it works:
One of our junk removal experts found a fully authenticated piece of Simpson’s artwork: a portrait of Lisa Simpson!
While we usually get used furniture, old mattresses, and outdated electronics, we get the occasional rare gem that we need to tell the world about. We’re truly amazed at some of the things our truck team members bring back.
