We work closely with our local e-waste partners to keep electronics out of the regular waste stream and directing unwanted electronics to licensed recycling facilities.

Alberta is home to Canada's very first electronics recycling program; since that time Albertans have recycled over 7.5 million pieces of unwanted electronic waste, resulting in over 153,000 metric tonnes of metal, glass and plastic being recycled back into the manufacturing stream!
Did you know that many of your unwanted electronic items contain valuable, recoverable natural materials that can be reclaimed and reused? Copper, gold, silver, aluminum and ferrous metals can all be stripped out of e-waste and recycling, helping to reduce the demand for raw, virgin materials, and in turn, reducing the natural resources and energy needed to make shiny new electronics!
E-waste can also contain toxic materials that can leach into the soil and water, such as mercury, cadmium, chromium, lead and beryllium. Some consumer electronics are manufactured with chemical flame retardants, while others are built with non-biodegradable plastics that have the potential to contaminate groundwater sources.

Hi! I’m David Harrop, your local franchise owner of 1-800-GOT-JUNK? Calgary. I took over the junk removal franchise in 2003 after selling my Certa Pro Painters franchise, which I owned and operated for five years. I was looking for a fun business with a great team and a young, fun culture where we could work hard and play hard.
Being part of the 1-800-GOT-JUNK? business has enabled me to become part of the Calgary Chamber of Commerce, JCI Calgary, and the Calgary chapter of the Entrepreneurs' Organization. These great organizations have helped us grow to be one of the top five franchises in the 1-800-GOT-JUNK? system, and has given us the opportunity to expand our operations to encompass the 1-800-GOT-JUNK? franchise in Hawaii. We have even participated in being a case study for the University of Calgary MBA program.
We recently opened a sorting facility in Calgary’s Northwest where we can sort through the junk to maximize recycling opportunities. We estimate that we will divert as much as 70% of the junk from our landfills, to recyclers including wood, glass, plastic, metal, paper and green waste. We feel great about our pro-active recycling efforts as the City of Calgary increases its own mandates about landfill diversions.
Thank you to the 10,000 plus customers in Calgary who have hired us to remove 10,000 tones of junk from their homes and businesses. We still have lots of work to do, but we are getting it done, one truck at a time!
