"As a ten-year veteran in professional junk removal, it's heart-warming to have so many members of our community come out to responsibly dispose of their electronics and tell us how grateful they are for us hosting this event", says Pierrette Raymond, franchise partner in Ottawa.  "We do this on a daily basis.. For us, it's Earth Day every day, but to see so many people come out to say "thank you for what you do"; it was a thrill."

In addition to recycling computers, televisions, monitors and other electronics, the Knights of Columbus Refurbishing Program was able to receive and donate more than 25 complete computer systems for underpriviledged families in our community.

Getting Our Kids to Remove Junk

Two 13 year old boys spent the day "on the job" as part of a "Take Your Child to Work Day". This meant our crew had two extra junk removers. Joshua, the franchise owners' son, and his friend Alexander, spent the day sweeping floors, picking up and loading junk and household garbage, and doing door-hangers. They finished the day with a wave alongside six junk pickup trucks.Ottawa's 1-800-GOT-JUNK? team supports "Take Child to Work Day"
