Going Green

Going green means carrying out Eco-friendly practices. Junk works is the greenest company in the industry. Junk handling practices at Junk works are among the best, they adhere to the Canadian environmental and climate change agency regulations. Their philosophy is going green through recycling, reuse and reduction of junk from the landfill. Junk works recycle and donate 60 percent of the junk collected and only a small margin ends up in the landfills. The Canadian government recommends the reduction, reuse and recycle as ways of management of junk and reduction of waste in the landfills.


Canadian landfill capacity dwindles with time and it's harder to access new sites. About 25% of methane gas emitted in Canada comes from landfills. Junk works philosophy of recycling is fundamental to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. Most Canadian households know the value of recycling and more households in Canada are having access to recycling programs.

Recycling has three steps, collecting, processing and manufacturing of new products. Collection and processing of trash involve sorting, cleaning and processing into materials. Junk Works sorts out junk material into various categories like metal, e-waste, paper, textiles, furniture and appliances. Recycled materials are just as good as raw materials, they manufacture, car bumpers, paper towels, newspapers, steel cans, laundry detergent bottles, plastic, aluminum and glass containers.

Recycling reduces combustion facilities which emit greenhouse gasses which affect global climate change. It also reduces waste in the landfills. Use of recycled materials saves water, forests and other minerals. Recycling is a great resource to the community as it has provided well-paying jobs. Junk works is at the forefront of value adding chain of recycled materials.

Reduction and Reuse

One way of reducing waste is not engaging in its creation. Reused products cut demand for new products and reduce demand for raw materials. Less demand for raw materials means the reduction in pollution. Reused furniture will save trees and energy used in the production of a new one. In addition, it saves the logistics involved through transportation from production facility and to the market. In the long term it saves money and allows products use to achieve their full lifespan.


Junk works donates reusable junk to charity. A donation is an act of compassion. Donations make sure we have less waste in the environment.

Unwanted appliances, clothes, books, unneeded furniture and tools etc are essential items to the less fortunate. Local churches, schools, community centers and nonprofit organizations greatly benefit from these items. Goods that would otherwise have ended in the landfills ends up being another person’s treasure. You also enjoy a tax benefit for every donation made to charity by Junk works.

Three young men showed up. Kind good-natured and happy to get the job done. Very accommodating and actually helped me move a couple extra things around to the back of the house. And they did it very gladly. High high marks. Highly recommend. ✨ they spoke very well of their boss Chris and it just goes to show you that a business runs from the top down! Thank you for a great job well done!
