5 Things to Look for When Choosing a Junk Removal Service

Many people across Ottawa need junk removal help each year. Whether it’s a result of doing a basement clean-out, replacing old appliances, or even from a commercial clean-up, there are so many ways that a junk removal company can be of service.

Keep these five tips in mind when it comes to hiring a junk removal service:
1.Be sure that they take all kinds of junk. The last thing you want is to find out that they don’t take many of the items you have and that you will need to find a second route to junk removal.
2. Hire a company that will handle all of the pick-up and cleanup for you, so that you are not left having to do all the lifting and labor. That could prove to be a time consuming and exhausting task.
3. Look for a junk removal company that is eco-friendly. That way, your old appliances, computers, household items, and other waste all end up disposed of appropriately, with very little of it being put into Ottawa landfills.
4. Any junk or debris removal service you hire should be hassle-free with no hidden surcharges. What you want is a smooth process from setting the appointment through everything being picked up. As well a company who sticks to their quote and doesn’t surprise you with hidden fees!
5. A company that allows you multiple ways to set a junk hauling appointment, including by phone and online, so that it is convenient for you.

Need a dumpster? Think again!

With the weather warming up, many people around Ottawa will be busy doing clean-outs of their house, including the basement or garage. They may even finally get around to cleaning up the old junk that has been lying around the yard or working on a home renovation. In doing so, many may wonder if renting a dumpster is the right way to go in order to get the job done right.

At Capital Junk we’d like to ask you to reconsider taking the dumpster route. That’s because you may not realize just how much work is involved in using a dumpster and how much more beneficial it is to give us a call for the junk removal.

When you rent a dumpster you will be doing a lot of work. You will be responsible for putting everything into it, which can be a lot of physical work. When you have us take care of your junk hauling needs, we do the hard work for you! Whether you are looking to do a clean-out that includes old appliances or furniture, household items or renovation materials, we make the job a lot easier.

Another big difference in renting a dumpster versus calling us at Capital Junk is what happens to the items or materials once it leaves your home or business. If you hire a dumpster it will all end up in Ottawa landfills, whereas we make it our mission to keep as much of it out of landfills as possible. By recycling what we are able to and donating items that can be reused to charities, we end up keeping about 70 percent of what we pick up out of landfills. That’s not only good for you and others, but it’s good for all of Ottawa.

All of these reasons and not to mention saving you money! Dumpster or bin rentals charge for the rental itself plus the weight of the bin after you fill it. Our pricing is strictly based on volume…no surcharges, hidden fees or rental costs! Contact us today to see how we can help you with all your junk removal needs! Visit for more details.
