Most appliances contain hazardous materials that are harmful to our environment. When disposed of in our landfills, they not only consume valuable space, but the hazardous materials contained in the appliances contaminate our soil and water systems.
Since it is easier for us to properly recycle appliances at local facilities, Capital Junk is happy to offer a reduced rate to our customers for appliance removal and disposal services.
At Capital Junk, we offer safe appliance disposal services in Ottawa. Most appliances have a 10 to 13 year life expectancy and in the last 10 years, the advances in energy saving technology have been tremendous and will save you hundreds of dollars on your energy bill by the end of the year. When you are thinking of having your appliance disposed of in Ottawa, there are a few things to keep in mind:
A refrigerator alone contains up to 140 pounds of metal, 20 pounds of plastic, and 3 pounds of glass (all recyclable materials). With this is mind, the City of Ottawa expects residents to have their old appliances recycled by a licensed recycling facility that will remove any harmful chemicals and recycle all other components. Old appliances are no longer accepted at curbside for regular municipal waste collection.
Capital Junk is an eco-friendly appliance removal service in Ottawa. No matter how many, no matter how small or how large, Capital Junk safely and efficiently provides appliance disposal from any location in your home or business, ensuring proper disposal.
