Home and business owners are increasingly keen to recycle as much as possible in order to minimise damage to the enivronment and make more efficient use of unwanted items.

Currently we divert over 90% of everything we uplift from landfill.

Junk-it property clearance

How we do it

Whenever we carry out a clearance of a house, garden, office or any other domestic, commercial or industrial property we always sort the items into categories suitable for various purposes.

For example:

  • Recyclables, for distribution to specialised recycling centres
  • Metal
  • Plastic
  • Paper and cardboard
  • Mattresses
  • Electricals (WEEE)
  • Wood and timber products
  • Items suitable for reuse, for donation to charities.
  • Items not suitable for reuse or recycling, for resource recovery (waste to energy).

Items that can be reused

Junk-it has strong partnerships with local charities and other local community based organisations which enables us to redistribute items of potential value to people who can benefit.







What happens to my good junk ?

We donate the reusable items that we collect to various charitable organisations. For example, well known organisations such as the British Heart Foundation and Oxfam benefit from donations of books, DVDs, clothing and bric-a-brac. Local charities such as Refuweegee and Starter Packs often accept kitchenware, small furniture items, clothes and other household items.

Useable furniture is also donated to the Glasgow and Edinburgh furniture initiatives that assist low income families to furnish their homes.

Diverting from landfill and minimising pollution

What we’re doing to help:

  • We only purchase new low emission vehicles.
  • We only use transfer stations with particularly high onsite recycling and resource recovery rates.
  • We use specialised recycling centres for things like mattresses, fridges, wood, metal and cardboard.
  • We donate as many useable items as we possibly can.
  • Our offices are as paper free as possible and have been kitted out with recycled items from our office clearances.
  • For every truck we fill, we plant a tree in the Junk-it grove in the Scottish Highlands in partnership with Trees for Life.
  • We are registered with the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA)

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.

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!.
