Junk Run is a hands on rubbish removal service, providing instant, responsible waste solutions to commercial, construction and residential customers since 2005, diverting over 70% from landfill back into the community through strategic alliances with charitable organisations, community groups, collectors, artisans and enthusiasts.
Junk Run’s core values centre on protecting the environment through our commitment and dedication to sustainable waste disposal.
Since 2005, we have built up a powerful brand through time-efficient, sustainable, and cost-effective service delivery. We have a unique approach to sorting, handling and diverting waste materials. We sort everything at the point of pick-up with no double handling, enabling us to redistribute and reallocate materials through our wide range of community and charitable organisations, or to divert to recycling facilities.
This service appeals directly to segments of the market that are interested in and committed to sustainable waste management. All of our customers, whether commercial, residential or from the construction industry see value in the way we carefully sort waste, load effectively onto our trucks and divert the waste away from landfill. By having our own staff collect and remove waste from our clients’ premises, we are able to service companies and individuals who are not able, or don’t have the time, to handle the waste themselves. We are also able to cater to the growing segment of the population who want to see their waste materials disposed of responsibly, rather than being landfill.
At Junk Run we really do care. Our slogan is ‘Send Your Junk To A Better Place’ and that’s exactly what we do.
We are waste averse and committed to continually contributing to social and environmental sustainability. We are community oriented, and create the best possible workplace for our employees, by encouraging and demonstrating respect, team work, a passion for our work, and by being a family-friendly workplace.
