Since Capital Junk came to fruition over 10 years ago, we have been committed to taking care of both our customers and the environment. For these reasons, we are a proud full-service junk removal business that advocates recycling and donating. As a green company, Capital Junk is dedicated to handling what we remove from your home and office responsibly.
Of course, there are many ways to be environmentally friendly – which is why we strive to be thorough with our efforts. When our junk loads are sorted and processed at our facility, sending your items to a landfill is always the very last option. First and foremost, we sort through your items based on what can be re-used, recycled, or donated.
We pride ourselves in providing quality service to customers, and equally qualitative service to the environment. Why not keep the environment clean while getting your house cleaned? It’s a win-win on all accounts. We know that we will all benefit later based on how we help the environment today. When searching for an eco-friendly, full-service junk removal, Ottawa has the best option with Capital Junk. We proudly service Ottawa, as well as other cities across Ontario not limited to Cambridge, Kitchener and Waterloo.
In case you had any questions about the processes of our Ottawa-based full-service junk removal company, this is how we keep our business green:
We are committed to ensuring that the products we take off of your hands are appropriately dealt with. Whether you recycle your refrigerator by using our full-service junk removal services or are looking to get rid of another appliance, we are happy to help. If you don’t know how to dispose of something properly, get the assistance of people who do! We can assure you that we properly dispose of your appliances and items, as we cautiously sort through them after removing them from your home.
If you have one-off items you want to give away yourself, we have a comprehensive recycling guide that will help you make sure your items are going to the right place. Did you know that Canadian Tire will accept and reclaim your LED light bulbs? Now you do! You’d be surprised how easy it is to recycle or even donate your appliances. Of course, if you are looking to get rid of something that isn’t on the list, that’s where we come in to figure out the best way to dispose of your items accordingly.
We Team Up With Environmentally Friendly Partners
Our full-service junk removal company helps you to declutter your home by recycling the items you are looking to get off your hands — and we are continually looking to improve our initiatives. We are always on the hunt for partners and new opportunities that will help us be even more effective in our efforts. We strive to lessen the impact of needless waste on the environment. In the past, we have been responsible for spearheading initiatives with partners like Hydro Canada, allowing us to become reputable leaders in recycling and diversion in Eastern Toronto.
We Have a Local Recycling Facility
As a full-service junk removal company, Capital Junk understands that some things are harder to recycle than others. That’s why we are proud to have a local recycling facility to sort through all the products we collect! Products are classified and processed for donation and recycling, and we only send items to the landfill when there is no other alternative. You can learn what full-service junk removal means as these efforts are just a part of our bevy of services.
You may have had your bedside table for the past 15 years, but others can always repurpose your furniture! You’re more than entitled to replace your dated furniture with new pieces – but when you’re ready to let a piece go, we’re more than happy to remove it and donate it to someone who may be in need of it. This way, your furniture isn’t sitting around in a junkyard and is being put to good use.
Don’t let unwanted things clutter up your home or office! When you are thinking of throwing out or discarding an item, give us a call so that we can do the work of donating those items. Our guide also pinpoints where you can donate certain things yourself.
We Partner With Charities
When we donate the items that we take off your hands, we have a system. Capital Junk has partnerships with a variety of reputable charities that we work with on a regular basis. Some of the charities we work with include the Goodwill, Habitat for Humanity, the Salvation Army and Ottawa Neighbourhood Services.
For example, know that when we take away any reusable furniture, it will go to charities like Value Village, local churches, and other organizations. We love doing local charity work as well as working with larger foundations that foster positive change. On our guide, you can actually see which of the charities we work with, and what specific items they take.
We’ve Partnered With Hydro Ottawa
We have also partnered up with Hydro Ottawa to develop a program that ensures that things like bulbs, fixtures and ballasts are diverted and properly recycled – but more on that later. If you’re not familiar, Hydro Ottawa is a corporation owned by the City of Ottawa that focuses on electricity distribution, renewable energy generation, management services, and energy conservation.
Together, we’ve recycled many fluorescent and compact fluorescent bulbs, alongside additional fixtures. We look forward to continuing our work with the progressive corporation to ensure the environmentally friendly disposal of bulbs and other items.
We’ve Spearheaded a light Bulb and Fixture Recycling Program
Here at Capital Junk, we get involved in a variety of environmental initiatives, including a comprehensive light bulb and fixture recycling program in partnership with Hydro Canada. It’s not easy to dispose of light bulbs – you can’t put them in blue bins, and you can’t throw them in the trash. There is a process. Even if you drop off your bulbs in stores that take them in, sometimes you just have too many, and it can be impossible to sort the various types. We can take those bulbs off your hands — so that we can adequately sort and recycle them.
We Protect the Environment from Hazardous Materials
What you may not realize is that domestic equipment like fridges can hurt the environment if they aren’t properly disposed of. Fridges and other appliances contain hazardous materials and chemicals, which is why we proudly offer appliance removal services. Once in our hands, your items will be disposed of properly. We are careful to be responsible with our methods, and recycle potentially harmful appliances like refrigerators correctly, and with caution. Plus, these appliances are heavy, and we want to help you with the burden of moving these large and awkward items!
We Recycle Electronics
Electronic waste isn’t accepted with garbage pick-up – so we’re here to help you take care of it. Another thing you may not know is that e-waste is responsible for adding 3000 tonnes (that’s 300 garbage trucks) to landfills annually. You can rest easy knowing that when you enlist our help, none of the e-waste we collect will end up in a landfill. Instead, we will recycle it.
Our e-waste recycling services ensure that all of your electronic gadgets from TVs to phones are disposed of safely and properly. We proudly offer e-waste removal services because we understand that you want to get rid of your electronics appropriately, but just don’t know how to! We’re all in this together.
Ontario Electronic Stewardship Program
We feel strongly about the growing problem of e-waste, which is why we are part of the Ontario Electronic Stewardship Program. The program is a not-for-profit organization that strives to meet the 2009 Ontario Waste Diversion Act’s outlined obligations. The program makes sure that all businesses affiliated are held to electronic recycling practices that are responsible and environmentally sound.
