Frequently Asked Questions
What is Junk 4 Good?
Junk 4 Good is a non-profit full service junk removal and bin rental company which offers professional waste removal services to residential and commercial customers. 100% of our proceeds go to support our local charity and the programs it offers in Edmonton, AB.
How does it all work?
It’s easy! Simply give us a call or book online, our team will arrive on site and give you a no-obligation up-front price for your removal. Once you give our team the “go ahead”, they will removal all the contents doing all the heavy lifting, leaving you to sit back and relax. Once finished, we will tidy up and issue you a payment receipt, leaving you with a clean home or work space.
Are you employees insured to do this type of work?
Yes! We carry ample liability insurance and are categorized in one of the highest WCB coverage categories. Quality and safety are our greatest concerns, so we always make sure our staff and most importantly our customers are well protected.
Why do you need to see the items in person in order to give me an accurate price?
Our pricing is based upon the volume of items removed, and how much space they will take up in our truck. Prices may vary depending on the weight and type of the material. This makes it very difficult to give an accurate estimate without seeing the items in person.
What is the size of your trucks?
Our trucks are 12 feet long, 8 feet wide and 5 feet tall measuring about 18 cubic yards of space. This is important to note when you are shopping around for rates because just like ourselves, most removal companies will charge based on the space your items take up in their truck. Truck capacity is key!
When should I book my appointment to make sure I can arrange a convenient time?
Book as soon as possible, as our schedule does fill up quite quickly. We have made all efforts to make scheduling an appointment as easy as possible. Please give our friendly customer service agents a call at 1-844-JUNK-4-GOOD, or try our free online booking, available 24/7!
Where does the junk end up?
We make every effort to reduce our environmental impact. If possible items are donated, recycled and sorted to divert from the landfill.
Mattresses – Mattresses that are collected within Edmonton are sent to Evergreen Recycling where more than 85% of each item is recycled and diverted from the landfill.
Appliances – Appliances that our staff collect are transported and sorted at an appropriate recycling station. These items are often are scrapped and become scrap metal which is then turned into future steel products. Appliances with coolant or Freon in them are separated and sent to a location where this refrigerant is responsibly removed.
Electronics – Many of your household electronics are recyclable! Items like TV’s, monitors, computers and more are separated and then sent to a local facility where they are disassembled for recycling.
Furniture – Furniture and household items that are in gently used shape are often dropped off at local non-profits such as Salvage Reclaimed Furniture. Items which are broken and considered “junk” will end up at a local transfer station.
Can you remove my junk if I am not on site?
Of course we would prefer that you are present on site, however we know that making arrangements can sometimes be difficult. In many cases, if the items are accessible our staff will call you with price before beginning work. Once you give the “go ahead” then we will remove the items and then phone you for credit card payment before we leave.
What can you remove?
We can remove almost anything from anywhere. If two staff can’t move it then we can arrange to have another truck on site. To date, we have yet to find an item that we can’t remove!
