How do I know my junk won’t be fly-tipped?

How do I know my junk won’t be fly-tipped?

  • Use a professional junk removal company with all the right credentials. A Waste Carriers Licence is a must and can be checked with the relevant agency. In Scotland it’s the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA).
  • Being Safe Contractor accredited or Trust A Trader approved is a great indication that the company you are dealing with are doing what they say they’re doing!
  • Reviews and recommendations can also speak volumes to the reliability and reputation of a service provider.

Needless to say, as a professional junk removal company, we tick all those boxes! Occasionally we’re even employed to clear fly-tipped junk! This junk was dumped very close to two commercial recycling centres. Our guess is the owners of the junk went for the cheapest option, which wasn’t enough to cover the disposal fees so, this is where it ended up.


Picture is a collage of three photos. The before photo showing flytipped junk at the side of a road, including packaging with an address on it and the after photo showing a clear road with no junk. From the blog post "How do I know my junk won't be fly-tipped"


The owners will likely be surprised when they discover their junk was dumped at the side of a road! They may end up with a hefty fine too! Don’t risk it, call in the professionals!

I’ve used Junk-It before and this time was just as good. A very quick, professional and courteous service. Connor and Pete, the guys who came to the house could not have been more pleasant or professional leaving not a trace of rubbish behind. Thanks guys.

Hi, I used Junk-It this week and I couldn’t fault the service. Connor and Pete came promptly to give me a quote and advice and completed the job efficiently with no mess. Charming chaps! Trish.

Amazing work from Paul and Thomas who didn't get afraid of removing our huge heavy meeting desk to get down from the 4th floor by the stairs. Super friendly, convenient and efficient!

Five star service and worth its weight in gold!! Enquired about moving large pieces of furniture from a house move and it was done only a few days later with precision and in a timely manner. Mikey and Jamie were very professional and I’ve already recommended them to many people. Wouldn’t hesitate to use them again!.
