Basement Clean-up Can Be a Breeze

True, the weather outside may be cold and it’s not yet time for spring cleaning, but it is the perfect time of year for doing a basement cleanup. Now is a great time to get down there and do the basement cleanup you know you have been avoiding for a long time!

Throughout the year, most people just continue to take all unwanted items to their basement. Surprisingly, everything from unwanted appliances to old computer parts and even unused paint can pile up down there. While most people do not make it a priority to clean out their basement garbage and rubbish on a yearly basis, if you haven’t done it in the last couple of years, it is surely time!

Just thinking of all the clean up work that needs to be done down there may seem like a daunting task. But don’t let it stop you from starting out the New Year by putting out the old and in with the new. First, take a look at what you have, and make note of any big items that may need to be cleared out, such as unwanted appliances, furniture, or other junk. Removing those larger items is a good place to start, to clear some room. Then get serious about differentiating between the things you really want to keep and what is just junk and clutter. Box up any unwanted debris and get it ready to haul away.

At Capital Junk, we are prepared to help haul away all the clutter you no longer need. And by calling us for your waste removal, you will be doing a good deed by helping keep those items out of a landfill. Much of the unwanted appliances, furniture and computer equipment we receive is recycled. Our junk removal service makes basement cleanup a breeze, even in the middle of winter!

Out With The Old, In With The New

Out With The Old, In With The New

As a new year is rung in, you may be one of the many people who either just purchased new appliances during the holidays or are about to take advantage of the sales to buy now. Although we try to make our appliances last a long time, it is inevitable, at some point, that we will need to replace them. Problem is, old appliance removal used to pose a challenge for most people. That is, until we entered the picture!

At Capital Junk, we provide appliance pickup services, as well as trash hauling services for appliance scrap, to both residential and commercial customers. If you have replaced – or are about to replace – your stove, fridge, or any other appliance, give us a call and we will haul away the unwanted appliances.

Teaming up with us to get rid of junk, especially unwanted appliances, means that you will be doing your part to keep these items from ending up in a landfill. We make a great effort to keep appliance recycling environmentally friendly, and we handle all aspects of appliance removal and metal recycling, including taking care of scrap metal recycling.

All cooling appliances, such as refrigerators, freezers, and air conditioners, require that proper safety measures be taken in their disposal. This is because they all contain insulating foams and refrigerants, which are greenhouse gases which become harmful to the environment if they end up in a landfill. Some of these appliances also contain mercury and other potentially harmful substances, making appliance recycling even more important.

When Capital Junk hauls away these unwanted appliances, we ensure that the appliances are properly recycled and disposed of. We will happily make arrangements with those living in the Metropolitan Ottawa area. Whether your new appliances are coming this month or six months from now, we are there when you need us!
