Let’s say you’ve just done a massive clean of your home. You and your buddies have cleaned the house from top to bottom, throwing away wood scraps, and ratty clothes from last decade and a computer that last worked when Jean Chretien was Prime Minister. It’s collection day so you haul every last bag to the curb and then…nothing. It all remains on the curb because the City of Ottawa curbside garbage collection service won’t pick up items if they don’t meet certain criteria. Save yourself the hassle and call a full-service junk removal company in Ottawa like Capital Junk to haul it all away.

Same Day Pickup

To start, the city will only remove garbage every second week. That’s a long time to wait. You can’t just store your junk on the curb for fourteen days, so it’s going to pile up in your home or garage. After the hard work of cleaning and decluttering, don’t you want to get rid of the garbage right away? Capital Junk offers same day service throughout the Ottawa area, so you’re never left holding the bag.

E-Waste

The City of Ottawa does not take electronic waste (e-waste) during curbside garbage collection. Collectors will simply leave televisions, computers, monitors, laptops, printers, fax machines, keyboards, mice, stereos, cameras, copiers, radios, phones, and DVD players on the curb. Sure, you could wait for weeks until the next scheduled e-waste drop-off, to jam these items into your car and drive all over the city trying to find the nearest drop-off location…or you could give us a call. Our friendly and professional team takes any and all e-waste. Capital Junk is a green company, and pledges that all e-waste is either donated or recycled – not a part will end up in a local landfill site.

Bulky Items

The city doesn’t accept bulky and awkward items like refrigerators, stoves, or washing machines for curbside pickup. The city expects citizens to dispose of old appliances by themselves, but what’s the safest way to do so?  Capital junk offers eco-friendly appliance removal for safe and environmentally conscious donation, recycling, or disposal of all the component parts.

Many Items

Did you know that the city won’t pick up more than six garbage bags for curbside pickup? If you’re decluttering or gutting the home for renovations, you know how quickly the junk can add up. With biweekly curbside pickup and a six bag limit, it could take months to clear out junk from a single cluttered room! We have the largest trucks in Ottawa, and we can haul away your junk in one single trip.
