& pick-up times
1-800-GOT-JUNK? Victoria began operations within the Capital Regional District nearly four years ago. We’ve helped hundreds of residential and commercial clients get rid of their junk. We service everywhere from the heart of downtown to the outlying areas. We take anything you no longer need, from old appliances, furniture, yard waste, construction debris and renovation material to electronic waste. Simply point to want you want our rubbish removal experts to take away and they’ll do the rest, including sweeping up when they’re done! We do our very best to find new homes for reusable items and we donate and recycle on a daily basis to keep as much out of the landfills as we possibly can. If you’re looking to regain your space give us a call today – our name is our number!
We are Grant & Alison Belbin, the local owners of 1-800-GOT-JUNK? in Victoria. We purchased the franchise in 2012 – the realization of a dream to work together while combining our backgrounds in Marketing/Public Relations (Alison), Construction/Demolition (Grant). We hit the ground running, meeting new customers and friends while serving the communities of Brentwood Bay, Colwood, Langford, North Saanich, Oak Bay, Saanichton, Sidney, and Sooke. We are proud to live where recycling, composting and waste reduction is a passion and a way of life. Our family and our franchise strive to lead by example, always finding ways to promote positive environmental change. We are excited to share our enthusiasm with others.
We are proud supporters of local charities and we take pride in donating multiple truckloads of furniture and gently used items to various organizations every month. After we remove items from our customer’s home or office we take them to our own sorting facility in Victoria where we can maximize recycling opportunities. We estimate that we divert from landfills, as much as 70-80% of what we collect. We recycle all wood, glass, plastic, metal, paper and green waste.
Every customer has their unique reason to call us and we appreciate each and every one of them letting us into their homes and their lives. We are privileged to provide a service that solves problems, frees physical space, and ultimately removes emotional obstacles.
Participating in the clean-up is a great way to make a difference to our local environment. Each year, more than two tonnes of debris is retrieved from the Gorge shoreline and waters. The result is an improved habitat for local wildlife and a more beautiful area for people to enjoy.
Volunteers from schools, local businesses and non-profit organizations will be involved in this year’s clean-up as well as residents from across Greater Victoria. Sponsors such as Tim Hortons, 1-800-GOT-JUNK?, The Ocean, JACK FM, the CRD, Victoria Harbour Ferry. Ellice Recycle, Thrifty Foods, Canadian Tire, Butler Brothers and Black Press all play a part in making this a successful event.
Event Headquarters will be set-up at two locations: Waterfront Crescent near the Galloping Goose Trail. (follow the signs), and Gorge Park. Clean-up crews will be assigned to the sections from Bay Street to the Tillicum Street Bridge.
Please join ! If you have further questions or wish to participate please contact the Burnside Gorge Community Centre at 250-388-5251 or visit www.burnsidegorge.ca
Our Truck Teams are always looking for creative ways to give back to our community. When it came to our attention last year, our Truck Team Members all embraced the BCSPCA “Paws for a Cause.” Our staff personally undertook to raise money for the fund, and collected almost $1000 dollars.
Our entire team became involved with the Burnside Gorge Community Association’s annual Gorge Waterway Cleanup, working with over 150 volunteers from around the community, assisting in the removal of almost 2 tonnes of debris from the Gorge shoreline during the one day event!
As a BCAA Partner we recently attended the open house and anniversary celebration of the Millstream office to show our support, and we donated a 1/2 truckload gift certificate as a contribution to the door prizes. What a great day! Over 500 people took advantage of the event throughout the day.
