Junk removal is the act of getting rid of unwanted objects. There are many reasons to get rid of junk, but where do you take it? The answer depends on what type of junk you have and how much there is. This article will go over the different types of junk removal and what you should do with your junk when faced with the question.

What Is a Junk Removal?

Junk removal is a service that helps you get rid of your junk. This can include trash, recycling, and donation. Junk removals can be a great way to get rid of your junk quickly and easily. The main thing that they do is help without asking you to do anything.

Types of Junk Removal

There are several types of junk removal services available in Canada, including: 

Professional Junk Removal Services

This is a company that will come to your home, pick up junk from all areas of your home or office and haul it away in a truck. They have the equipment and trained personnel to do this for you. They generally charge per pick up and it is based on the amount of junk you have.

This company will move large items for a small fee, as well as haul off trash, hazardous waste, and yard waste that can't be recycled or deposited into a landfill. You also pay a flat fee if there is debris from remodeling work in your home.

Recycling Plants

If you have a lot of furniture or appliances that can be recycled, then these facilities may be able to help. You must either sell it at a yard sale or let them know you will drop off the items around the same time so they don't charge you for extra pickup and delivery fees or ask if there is a fee for dropping off the items.

They do not come to your home, though some may allow you to unload it yourself at their location and give you a receipt for tax credit purposes. If you have electronic items such as computers and televisions that can be recycled, they will probably charge an extra fee.

If these types of materials are disposed of incorrectly, they can be hazardous to the environment. In many areas, there are laws against dumping these items at the landfill and you will be fined if caught doing so, so you must drop them off properly or hire a business that does this for you.

This type of service is also called rubbish removal, and in most cities and towns across Canada, you can do a search online and find a service that will come to your home, pick up the trash or junk, and haul it away at a fair price.

Trash Removal

This service is for junk that you can't or don't want to get rid of yourself. The company will come to your home, pick up the items from your yard and haul them away. They won't help clean out a whole house or garage, but you can ask the company if they have a discount for multiple pick-ups at one address.

Donation Removal

This company will pick up your items and take them to a charity for you. Many donation companies have a minimum charge which means that if you have less than that amount in junk, then it may not be worth the price of a pick-up.


The article has provided you with a guide on the types of junk removal and what to do with your junk when faced with these questions. You must be able to answer this question for it not to be difficult getting rid of your unwanted items at home or work.

Hopefully, this article provides clarity on how best to manage your trash, recycling, donations, etc. so that you can get back controls over space at home or office by lightening the load.
