We are unable to remove hazardous materials including paint, chemicals, motor oils, asbestos, propane tanks or medical-related waste. Please call our office if you have any questions or require further clarification. If you have materials that we cannot accept, we will do our very best to assist you with finding an alternative environmentally sound solution.
Unfortunately, our trucks are not licensed or insured to carry hazardous materials. We are properly registered with the Ministry of the Environment to haul non-hazardous materials legally. You can call your local recycling or waste management company or the City of Ottawa for further assistance on removal for this type of debris.

We do all the hauling, loading and clean up for you and our charges reflect only the volume of junk we remove. We only charge for what we take away. In most instances, when you rent a bin you have to pay for the entire volume, regardless of how much space you utilize. In many cases, others will throw junk into your bin leaving you with the cost of disposal. Our prices remain competitive with disposal bins, we recycle a lot more and provide all the labour!
