Stuff We Get Asked

WHAT CAN'T YOU TAKE?

** Applies to both Junkery Bags and Junkery Pick Up **

The list of what we can take is a really, really big one so instead it’s easier for us to list what we can’t take because it is dangerous for us and our truck. We cannot take:  Paint  (empty paint cans are no problem)  /  Oils  Asbestos / Hazardous Waste  (such as weapons grade plutonium and those types of scary things) / Household Hazardous Waste (HHW)*

*HHW is waste material generated from our homes or companies that pose a risk to health, safety, or the environment. This includes flammable, combustible, corrosive and toxic junk. Properly disposing of HHW products ensures the safety of Nova Scotians now and for generations to come.

DO I HAVE TO STAY HOME AND WAIT?

Junkery Bags  –  No.  Isn’t that great! Fill the Junkery Bag at your leisure and call and schedule the pick up.  Go to work.  Go shopping.  Go to a movie.   Simple as that. No need to wait for us. * Pick up would require pre-payment. 

Junkery Pick Up – If you require items moved from within your home then obviously yes, you need to be home. You choose the date and time and we will contact you within 30 minutes of our team arriving at your location to let you know an exact time they will arrive (or if because of inexplicable Halifax traffic bottlenecks, if we’re going to be late). If the junk is outside and you have met with one of our team members, pre-paid for the pick-up, then no – go about your routine and we’ll show up and take care of things.

WHERE DOES MY JUNK GO?

Have we mentioned we LOVE Earth? Earthity, earth, earth!! So once we pick up your junk – in either a Junkery Bag or Junkery Pick Up – we sort and recycle every possible thing that we can to keep it out of the landfill – it’s just what we do!  By sorting, we recycle and divert more than 85% of materials we collect away from the landfill!

HOW DO I BOOK A PICK-UP?

We are here to make your life easier. We’ll do the scheduling for you. No need to fuss around with postal codes and online calendars. Simply pick up the phone and call us or click our handy “We Are Here” button in the bottom right and live chat directly to a Junkery team member (available 9:00am – 5:00pm). After hours, please leave a message and we’ll be in touch the next day.

HOW BIG IS YOUR TRUCK?

Here comes the boom! The epi-centre of Junkery is our really, really cool boom truck (our guys wanted to add a few more “really’s” in there). With an impressive 12x8x5 aluminum box, at 17.4 cubic yards, our truck is 20% larger than our competitors. The boom crane and the Junkery Bags are a match made in junk heaven.

JUNKERY BAGS OR JUNKERY PICK UP?

It’s all based on what works for you and is part of our company’s custom junk removal service. Junkery Bags are an ideal alternative to renting a dumpster for big reno projects. Junkery Pick Up is an option if you don’t want the hassle of lifting junk yourself. Maybe a combo works best. We work with you to identify the perfect junk removal solution for your needs.

WHERE DO I BUY A JUNKERY BAG?

You can call us, email or online chat to order your bag or you pick the bag up at our office or we may be able to deliver it right to your door. We’ll figure that out when we talk.

CAN I REUSE MY JUNKERY BAG?

Junkery Bags are made of a heavy duty polyethylene and are quality tested as a one-time use only bag. The great news is that after they’ve done their job, they get recycled!

HOW DO I PAY YOU?

We make it easy for you to pay us – we’re selfish like that.  We accept VISA, MasterCard, Debit and Interac e-Transfer payments – over the phone, in our office or on site during pick up.   

WHAT'S INCLUDED IN YOUR PRICES?

For our Junkery Bags, our prices include the bag, pick up, labour and all tipping/dumping fees.  Bags are paid at time at purchase which means you don’t even have to be home when we pick it up!  For our Junkery Pick Up, our prices include pick up, labour and all tipping/dumping fees.

MY JUNKERY BAG AS A SWIMMING POOL?

Huh?…absolutely not… junkery bags are strictly for junk removal, you cannot use it as a swimming pool!! We’ve actually been asked this question not once, but MANY TIMES?!?!?

THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY!

We want your feedback – all the good, bad and ugly of it.  If we’re doing a good job then yay for us, please tell us.  If we’re doing a bad job, we need to know so we can change so boo for us, please tell us. 

I'M ONLY FREE AFTER HOURS.

Not a problem. Let’s have a chat and find a solution for you.

WHAT AREAS DO YOU SERVICE?

We’ve heard the grumblings…”I bet you don’t come out as far as my house”.   Our service area is quite broad and outside of typical “borders” so you never know until you ask…so ask us!   Particularly if you’re using one of our Junkery Bags, they are so easy – for both you and us – that we will definitely go outside the boundaries.

Take a look at the map and if you’re not sure, give us a call.
