There are a lot of reasons why someone may renovate their home whether it be a need for change, some much overdue updates, or just because they feel like it. Regardless of your reasons for re-vamping your home, there are certain things you’re going to need to think about before going ahead with your home improvement project.
One of the things to consider when gearing up to make a significant change to your living space is your waste. You’re going to need a game plan to get rid of construction debris (wood chips, scrap materials, sawdust etc.), and all the things that you won’t have a use for anymore (i.e. furniture, appliances, stray belongings).
When you choose a full-service junk removal company like Capital Junk to keep your renovation waste free, you can rest assured that the process will be made a lot easier for you, your home and your contractors.
According to The Toronto Star, an Altus Group housing report revealed that Canadians spent almost $77.7 billion on renovations — in 2017 alone. That’s a lot of renovations and a lot of waste.

Curbside Pickup Won’t Pick Up Everything
Every city has different requirements when it comes to picking up renovation waste. Ottawa, for one, only allows residents to put a total of six items on their curb — and these items can’t weigh over 33lbss.
Let’s be honest — if your home is undergoing a renovation, you’re going to be getting rid of a lot more than just 6 items.
These items are also not collected through regular garbage pick-up. It can be a hassle to wait for waste removal collection and have to go through the waste to pick out the things not acceptable for pick up.
We’d say that junk removal is the easier option when it comes to disposing of your renovation waste. We will sort through everything we collect on your behalf to make sure everything is disposed of responsibly.
You Can Get Your Kids Involved
Kids love to feel useful — but when it comes to home improvement, there’s little they can actually do. When you utilize our junk removal services to keep your renovation waste-free, you can encourage your kids to start getting things together for us.
Get your kids excited about recycling their things and about their new space! If you are renovating their rooms, for example, you can get them involved by having them decide what items they are ready to get rid of.
Give them the responsibility of gathering the stuff that they don’t need anymore — this way they can’t accuse you of getting rid of one of their favourite items!
We Take Everything
As mentioned, cities have tight regulations on what they will and won’t pick up. When you use junk removal, you can rest easy knowing that as long as you don’t have any hazardous materials, we will take everything.
Our team is ready to take any wood, bricks, drywall, tile — you name it. Just point us towards what you want taken off of your hands and we will haul it away.
Why lift heavy things like scrap materials and other bulky items? When you have a home improvement job in the works, that’s physically — and mentally — draining on its own. As a junk removal company, we are ready to do all the heavy lifting ourselves.
It can be tricky to figure out what renovation waste is compostable and what materials can be recycled. It’s imperative for the environment that there’s an efficient system in place to properly get rid of these materials.
According to Statistics Canada, construction, renovation and demolition waste alone account for 12 percent of solid waste created in Canada.
When you enlist our help, we’ll do the heavy lifting to haul your waste away and will bring everything to our recycling center — this is where we assess everything that we collect to ensure it all gets diverted properly.
We are proud to be a green company committed to keeping the environment clean and our junk removal practices environmentally responsible.

Clean Rid of Old Furniture & Appliances
The chances are that when you need to get rid of renovation waste, it’s not just construction waste that will need to be removed. You will probably also need to get some furniture and appliances off of your hands.
When you get help from a full-service junk removal company like ours, you ‘ll be able to get everything done in one go. In addition to hauling away your construction waste, we can also remove your furniture, appliances — you name it.
A renovation is a process on its own — getting rid of the items that you don’t want anymore is another hurdle entirely. Generally speaking, when undergoing a renovation, homeowners want to replace their old things with new ones that better suit their home’s refined aesthetic — which is exciting and fun.
That being said, where is all of your old stuff going? If your answer is storage — we need to talk. Instead of just putting these old things in storage, donate them.
At Capital Junk, we can streamline both processes! Not only will we take these items off of your hands, but we will also make sure your re-usable furniture, appliances and other items get donated to a reputable charity we work with like Habitat for Humanity or The Salvation Army.
Get Hazardous Waste Managed Appropriately
Although we don’t remove items that the city deems hazardous, we do collect materials and waste that can become hazardous if not treated properly. We make sure your stuff is disposed of responsibly to ensure that it doesn’t contaminate the landfill.
Avoid the Landfill
As mentioned, non-hazardous waste can become hazardous after being sent to the landfill — this is because some materials can become toxic or are just not compatible with landfills.
Rest assured, the landfill is always our very last option. We are committed to making sure recyclable materials get stripped and re-used, and usable items get donated. We strongly believe that sentencing your waste or materials to the landfill is not the answer to waste management.
