It isn’t easy being fluorescent!

Being fluorescent may sound exciting – you get to be dazzling and bright, used in nearly every home, office around the world in the form of light bulbs and lighting strips and you can be all shapes, sizes, and colours- being fluorescent may seem cool.

However, in the absence of alternative disposal techniques, fluorescent tubes have traditionally been disposed to landfill.

There are more than 100 million fluorescent tubes and lamps used in the UK each year. The mercury from only one fluorescent tube can contaminate up to 30,000 litres of water beyond a safe level for drinking.

No longer is landfill an acceptable route for lamps. Even though each lamp contains only small levels of mercury, the sheer number of lamps being disposed of, could harm the environment and water table.

At Junk-It we can safely dispose of fluorescent light bulbs and all your rubbish that cannot be disposed of in a skip. We ensure that 82% of what we uplift from any rubbish collection in Glasgow, junk removal job in Edinburgh or a flat clearance in Aberdeen is reused and recycled.

All it takes is 4 steps- call, book a time, our friendly uniformed team collects your junk in our specialised trucks and then we recycle it! So call us today and get junk disposed off in the right way!

Reviews

I phoned many companies prior to speaking with Sarah, and i decided to chose junk-it because of her friendly, helpful customer service. After clearing out, i felt embarrassed with the amount of rubbish I had gathered. However, when Dom, Charlie, and Mikey came for collection, they couldn’t be any nicer. It was as if no job was too much. I felt so relaxed, i asked them to price another area of my property where old garden toys, and other rubbish needs removed. Thanks for being so lovely and I'll definitely be back in touch for your help again soon.

I've used Junk-It a number of times now, and every time I do, I am reminded of how I would never look for another junk removal company. They are just perfect! From a super-quick response from Sarah (on a bank holiday!), booked in for exactly my preferred time, a phone call when the truck was on the way, and then super efficient removal of my items. Jordan and Alex were the team on this day, and they were champions! Lovely, relaxed and chatty, while being quick, calm, organised and making the removal (including two very large sideboards) seem so easy! Thanks guys!

Fantastic service, easy to book, easy to pay and customer service is outstanding. The team arrived on time, professional and friendly, got the job done and left everything clean and tidy. I would def recommend and I will be using Junk It again when I clear out my garage.

My law firm used Junk-It a third time (hence another review) to remove two office bookcases and a chair. The appointment was very prompt, I called Friday afternoon and was able to get an uplift appointment Monday afternoon. I was given a window for the uplift and the drivers called in advance to advise of their ETA, and thereafter arrived right on time. Connor, Charlie, and Alex in Glasgow were exceptional and exemplified the highest standard of professionalism and efficiency during the uplift. It was seamless and at a very reasonable cost. I highly recommend Junk-It for a smooth, hassle-free service.
