Proper tire disposal is easier than you think...and more important!

Did you know that, each year, hundreds of millions of rubber tires are used? It’s true! Think about all the things that use tires, including your vehicles, motorcycles, trailers, trucks, motor homes, etc. Most of them use at least four tires and a spare, and all of those old tires have to be replaced, at some point. But just what, exactly, are you supposed to do with all the old tires? While many people are not quite sure, what you do with them actually makes a big difference to our world.

If tires are not properly disposed of, they can wreak havoc on the environment. Piles of old tires cause an environmental health risk, because they are combustible. Tire burns can leak toxic chemicals into the water supply, as well as fumes into the air. When tires burn, they release harmful chemicals such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, benzene, phenols, butadiene, and styrene. Because of this, it is important to get rid of old tires properly.

One way to accomplish that is to have the old tires, or any other bulk garbage removal, done by a responsible junk removal service. At Capital Junk, we know how to properly dispose of old tires. All you need to do to get rid of junk is gather it together and give us a call. We will be out to pick it up and then make every effort to ensure that proper disposal follows.

We serve the Ottawa area with a wide range of junk removal services, including getting rid of appliances and old computers, or even miscellaneous garbage and rubbish. So when you find yourself with old tires and need someone to haul them away, give us a call. It may be a hassle for you, but it’s what our junk removal service is all about.

Office Clean-Outs Easier Than You Think

The thought of cleaning out the office and making a move can be a daunting one. But if you employ the right help, it can be much easier than you ever expected. And when it comes to deciding where to turn for help with your office clean-out, you will want to keep junk removal in mind. While furniture moving companies may be able to help you lift heavy items, most are not equipped to haul away the junk that results from an office move.

 At Capital Junk, our office clean-out system is ideal for those commercial businesses that may be making a move to a new location and will have a need for junk removal at the same time. Our junk-removal service focuses on helping you recycle the clutter that can be recycled, while hauling away what cannot be.

Usually, when companies do an office clean-out, they are left with a lot of trash and junk that needs to be removed. While you are moving, it is the perfect time also to organize and weed through old things you may longer need.

We can help you dispose of old computers, office furniture, and even old appliances. We provide trash hauling and clean-up services for those companies looking to relocate their office, or simply do a clean-out.

Our junk-removal services are available throughout Ottawa. If you have a clean-up project you need to accomplish, partnering with us can help provide a smooth office transition and get you back up and running in less time than you may have thought. Our trained professionals know how to get the job done right, at an affordable price.

Additionally, we at Capital Junk are happy to assist with house clean-outs, including helping to get rid of appliances, yard waste, and scrap metal.
