COVID-19 Update

We continue to operate during the COVID-19 outbreak with the exception of modified hours and some exceptions. We will not be serving customers in apartment buildings for the time being.  For the safety of our staff and customers, we ask that everyone respects the social distancing guidelines provided from the government. Our staff will be prepared with gloves and masks. Payment can be made via telephone once your job has been completed, to avoid any contact with our staff. Here are a few tips that will hopefully make your junk removal little easier: 

  1. If items you need to be removed are scattered throughout your home, please consider marking the items you would like to be removed with a piece of tape or a sticky note. That way, our staff can quickly and efficiently remove your items with no contact. 
  2. You could also consider having your items outside or in your garage. We will most definitely offer a discount if this is the case. 
  3. Lastly, we also offer Bin Rental services.  We can deliver a dumpster off right in your driveway and you can fill it up at your own pace and totally eliminate any contact

We ask for your patience as we have been trying to prioritize each customer. Our online booking tool is updated daily, and right now it is the most efficient way to book your junk removal. 


Stay safe!

Do you have a trailer full of trash or scrap metals and you need a place to dump? Below we have compiled a list of residential friendly sites for depositing your general waste, mattresses, construction debris, appliances and other scrap metals.

Trail Waste Facility

Address: 4475 Trail Road
Location: Near Moodie/Fallowfield
This is the City of Ottawa’s landfill.

Paper/Cardboard/Books etc: Inform them that you have paper products and the workers will direct you to a large bin where you hand load your paper for recycling.

Tires: Inform them that you have tires to recycle and you’ll be directed to a paved area where you can drop them off for recycling.

Electronic Items: Specify that you are carrying these items in your load so they can point you to a dumpster where all the electronic waste and small household appliances go.

Appliances: Please note that you cannot deposit appliances at the landfill that contain coolant or any type of Freon. If the coolant has been removed, the appliance must be tagged by a professional, stating that the chemical has been removed properly. If your appliance does not use coolant (such as a stove or dishwasher) then you will be directed to the proper disposal area by on-site staff. If your appliance has coolant, you’ll need to schedule a pickup with us or contact Bryans Refrigeration to have the Freon removed.

Garbage/Debris: Give them an idea of the type of debris and they will direct you to an area of the landfill where you can deposit.

Cost: The rates vary for different materials so it is important to specify what you are carrying in your load. For example, they have a reduced rate for yard debris so be sure to sort your load before going to the landfill.

Tip: Saturday’s are very busy and it is advisable to be there right at open time to avoid a long wait to get in and out of the landfill.

Progressive Waste Solutions

Address: 2628 Glenfield Road
Near Stevenage/Hawthorne

This is an indoor transfer station owned by Progressive Waste Solutions. They can only accept waste as they are not a recycling facility. No tires, paper, electronic waste or appliances are permitted.

Cost: The rate is based on the weight of the contents in your load. You should be wearing steel toe boots and they may ask you to wear a hard hat and vest to improve visibility.

Tip: Be aware of your surroundings. The building can be very intimidating as there are large industrial trucks driving around inside, dropping off their waste.

The rates vary for different types of metals and e-waste. In addition, there is a different rate for loads that are unsorted. Be sure to sort your items into specific categories, for example:

•  Put all your electronic waste together (phones, television sets, radios, etc.).

•  Appliances go together in their own category, from toasters to ovens.

•  Pure metals such as stainless steel plates or copper pipes should be sorted and separated based on their type, before entering the facility.
