1-800-GOT-JUNK?: Your friendly neighbourhood junk recyclers
At 1-800-GOT-JUNK? we do our best to recycle or donate as many items as possible. We’re always looking for ways to keep junk out of the landfill and we conduct a regular waste stream analysis to see how we’re doing. We recycle the recyclables and donate the donatables, so there is no need to worry that using a junk removal company will have a negative environmental impact.
Every franchise has their own method for sorting recyclables and donatables. Some will sort as they pick up junk and others will wait until the truck is full. Either way, items are consistently being diverted from landfills. Concerned your junk can’t be recycled? Don’t worry!
