Pub/Bar Refurbishment, Edinburgh

Case Study: Illegal Fly-tipping Disposal, Leith, Edinburgh

Client name: Donaldson Construction Jock’s Lodge pub
Business Sector: Hospitality
Location: Jocks Lodge pub, Edinburgh


An old pub that had been untouched for over 5 years. The inspection found asbestos in the building. Junk It was used to empty the pub, to create space for the asbestos removal work to be carried out. Moving forward the construction company was planning on using skips for the rip out. However, there was nowhere to drop a skip and Edinburgh City Council would not allow one on the street as there is a main junction outside of the Bar. A skip at this location would be dangerous to traffic.


Project Details

No permit for skip on the road.

Collections every 2-3 days to keep the project on time.

Junk It has since been back on 3 occasions to remove the debris, with further pick ups scheduled.

Job ongoing.

    Hi I had my garage cleared yesterday & I wanted to compliment the two young men who did an amazing job. They were punctual, polite, efficient & got the job done quickly. They also handled neighbours with courtesy. I would recommend your company to friends & family. Thank you very much for a great job.

    Ross and all the guys at Junk It offer a brilliant efficient and hassle free uplift service. I’ve used Junk It a few times to clear out offices of old furniture etc and they never disappoint. It’s great to know that most of the stuff they take away is re-used or recycled too. Don’t just chuck it – Junk It

    We have used Junk It on a number of occasions to carry out waste removal services. I can honestly say that the way in which the company operates, their fast response times, and overall methods are fantastic. It also gives us great peace of mind that we are dealing with a company who are totally up to date with SEPA and other environmental legislation, as we have come across many other waste management companies who are not fully aware of these issues. I would happily recommend Junk It to any other organisation.
