Plant a tree with Junk-it Scotland

What does a house clearance in Edinburgh have to do with Golden Eagles?

Picture shows an aeriel shot of the Scottish Highlands with the text 1539 trees in this grove, Junk-it Ltd. For every truck we fill, we plant a tree in partnership with Trees for Life.

Here at Junk-it we do more than just pick up junk. If you book a house clearance with us, not only do you get a professional house clearance service. We also donate or recycle the vast majority of the items we remove, and we’ll plant a tree for every truck your items fill!

Junk-it is a proud partner of Trees for Life

Our aim has always been to be as environmentally responsible as possible and we’re always looking for more ways to help the environment. In 2020 we became a partner of Trees For Life. As of May 2023 there are over 1500 trees in the Junk-it grove!

Trees for Life is an organisation based in Scotland which plant native trees helping to restore the Caledonian Forest and rewild the Scottish Highlands. These endeavours create habitats for wildlife such as Red Squirrels, Pine Martins, Capercaillie and Golden Eagles!

So, what does a house clearance in Edinburgh have to do with Golden Eagles? Well, if you book Junk-it to do that house clearance, you could help create and maintain a Golden Eagle friendly environment in the Scottish Highlands!

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!.
