Your guide to recycling old appliances

Your Guide to Recycling Old Appliances

You’ve got some stuff to get rid of. You could bring your haul to a scrap metal dealer to see what they’ll take, or you could research your local and provincial appliance recycling programs. Another option is checking if your appliance retailer has a haul-away program.

However, if you care about the environment and want to make responsibly disposing of junk a breeze, one option is a cut above the rest.

Junk Works is the greenest appliance disposal service in Ontario and the industry. We recycle and donate 60% of the stuff we collect, keeping a large portion out of Canadian landfills. Keep reading for a quick breakdown of our removal services.

Self-Service Dumpster Rental

Do you have some stuff to get rid of and think you can lift it yourself? Dumpster rentals are perfect for hands-on, DIY junk removal.

We can safely drop off and pick up a dumpster on your driveway, making removal a breeze. Pricing depends on your location, but you’ll only pay for the space you use.


Most companies offering appliance disposal services in Ontario charge a single rate. We offer our customers three pricing tiers to give them the best value. Book online, and you’ll save $20.

  • Minimum – As low as $148
  • 1/2 Full – $298
  • Full – As low as $368

*We pass on the disposal/recycling fees of items like TVs, mattresses and tires. Avoid putting these items in the dumpster to avoid an additional items charge.

The junk you need to be removed can be loaded into the dumpster by hand. The customer is responsible for loading junk so consider dumpster rental if you have friends or family helping you out.

Perfect for the junk you wouldn’t typically put out on the curb like roofing materials, cement, bricks or dirt.

Full-Service Junk Removal

Full-service junk removal means that we’re doing the junk cleanup for you. Our Big Red trucks can show up at your location to provide an estimate.

Our trucks have 20% more volume than our competitors for less money. If you’re happy with your written estimate, simply point out the junk, and poof—our crew hauls it off.


We’ll always provide you with a written estimate for your records. We also guarantee to beat written estimates from other appliance disposal services in Ontario.

Click here to try our pricing estimator, or read below for three other ways to get an estimate.

  • On-site pricing: We come to you to provide an estimate. Free assessment and no obligation. We can usually start immediately if you’re happy with the price.
  • Send us a picture: Text us a photo of your items, and we’ll provide you with an estimate. You can send one image or multiple; whatever works for you.
  • Call us and ask: Our trained staff can typically offer a firm price for four items or less and a firm price for more than four. Call us at 737-888-5865.

The junk you have to throw away is too heavy to lift by yourself. Just point to your items, and our crew will quickly haul them.

If you have TVs or mattresses, choose this service to avoid the charge of disposing of these items in a dumpster rental. You’ll also want one of our trucks if you have big kitchen appliances or furniture to get rid of.

Commercial Junk Removal Services

There’s not much difference between Full-service Junk Removal and Commercial Junk Removal.

We deliver our trucks for both, but full-service is typically used for residential cleanup, and commercial junk removal is used for businesses.


You’ll only pay for the space you use. Call us at 737-888-5865 or click here to receive an estimate.

We recommend on-site pricing for an immediate firm price if you have many items in your commercial space.

Choose This Service If…

You need a team to remove junk from your commercial space. Junk Works has tonnes of experience with commercial cleanups, such as:

  • Construction mess: Disposing debris, waste, and dirt from construction or renovation projects.
  • Property Management: We get rid of old items to make your space presentable and ready for new tenants.
  • Real Estate: Whether you plan on selling, renting or living in an inherited or foreclosed home, there’s usually a lot of garbage that needs to be dealt with first.
  • Storage Facilities: Abandoned storage facilities must be cleared out quickly so the unit can be rented again.

Items We Remove

To make a long list short, we’ll take pretty much anything and everything except hazardous waste. We specialize in disposing of the following:

  • Appliances
  • Furniture
  • Yard Waste
  • Mattresses
  • Hot Tubs
  • Televisions
  • Garage Clutter
  • Refrigerators
  • E-Waste
  • Construction Waste

The above list is by no means ALL we take. If you have something, not on the list, give us a call, and we’ll let you know if we can collect it.

And don’t worry about lining up all your items outside. You don’t have to do any prep work before we arrive. Wherever you have items, be it the basement, attic or backyard, our crew will safely bring them to the truck for you.
