With well over 10,000 landfill sites already in Canada* and an estimated 11,000 tonnes of recyclable materials still being deposited into landfills**, the need for environmental responsibility is greater than ever. By following a strict environmental policy that goes above and beyond Ontario’s waste management laws, Load of Rubbish continuously strives to discover new and innovative ways to recycle, reuse, or repurpose materials that would otherwise end up in landfills.
When junk is removed from your home or estate, the majority of the sorting is done right there on site and organized in the truck according to where it will be taken for proper disposal. A covered trailer ensures that any reusable items are safe from the elements and can be donated to community partners such as Habitat for Humanity or the Salvation Army. “One person’s trash is another person’s treasure” is a sentiment that our team members have come to respect and truly understand.
When dealing with electronics, up to 90% of components can be recycled from homes and businesses with the Ontario Electronic Stewardship currently allowing for a total of 44 different types. As electronics are one of the fastest growing products in Canadian landfills, it’s important for your removal company to understand that when managed and recycled properly, their valuable parts can be refurbished and reused. If you are unsure of whether your electronics are recyclable, please call our team toll free at 1-800-865-8654 for direction.
Through our dedicated service to clients and the broader community as a whole, Load of Rubbish strives to keep our planet clean and beautiful for generations to come by recycling over 80% of the junk that we collect. The fact that we include both recycling and waste management costs right in our rates means that you can join us in doing the right thing without fear of surprise fees at the end of the job.
