Compliance

Compliance

All junk, rubbish, unwanted and broken household and commercial items that Junk It are asked to remove are 100% disposed of in compliance with the Law.

As a ISO14001 accredited company, we are not a fly-by-night operation and we really do our bit to ensure that we do all we can to help the environment.

When we uplift items from premises we prepare and sort them according to their destination. For example, we send fridges to a licensed treatment facility to remove the freon gas properly.

Since our formation in 2006 we have rapidly grown to become Scotland’s largest house and office clearance and junk removal company with depots in Glasgow, Edinburgh and the Central Belt.

Responsible Hazardous
Waste Removal

It’s not just hazardous waste such as fridges that requires legally compliant disposal. Typical items classed as hazardous waste that we can remove and dispose of include:

  • Tyres
  • Light bulbs
  • Microwaves
  • Fridges
  • Freezers
  • Air con units
  • Fire extinguishers

Below are just two of many jobs Junk It have undertaken which involved WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) and hazardous waste that required our legal compliance.


Prince’s Trust Office Junk Removal

The bags in the photo were full of documents that required secure disposal. We use an industrial shredder to dispose of paperwork, binders, accounts, etc and shred the contents and bag. A certificate of destruction is always given to our clients upon completion for compliance purposes.

There was also a quantity of WEEE to dispose of including monitors, fluorescent bulbs and computer hard drives. None of these items can go to a normal transfer station but instead require special processing and disposal, all of which we take care of.


BUPA Home Junk Removal

We collect from all the BUPA sites and the photo shows a typical example. They regularly clear furniture such as broken beds, wardrobes, chairs, etc that are broken or worn.

They also dispose of a large number of waste appliances as the photo shows. We provide a fully audited waste trail as well to ensure compliance.

    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.
