Whether you are doing an upgrade, replacement, demolition, renovation or a brand new building, we take almost anything. Building and remodeling projects are dirty work. When the construction is done and the dust has settled, there’s a lot of dust and dirt and mess. This is where The Junk Box comes in. We are experts in professional post-construction clean-up in Victoria, BC.
What About Drywall?
*We take drywall as well, depending on the year and if it has been tested. If drywall has a date stamp dated 1990 and earlier, the drywall has to be tested for asbestos. Asbestos in materials is a major health concern if not handled and disposed of properly! Testing for asbestos can be done at a number of sites in Victoria; Northwest Environmental, AREC Environmental or Sky Environmental. You would simply submit a sample edge or corner of drywall, with mud/plaster intact, for testing with one of these companies. The result of your drywall sample would be available in a day or two. If the material proves to be asbestos-free, we will gladly take the drywall away for recycling! If the material has asbestos in it, we would be more than happy to recommend specialized companies that safely and properly dispose of asbestos-laden materials.

We Really Do Recycle. Give Us A Call.
Construction debris takes a good looking over. Everything has its special “spot” in terms of where it should go and very little should EVER go to the landfill. Our society has had to change its thinking and views in regards to what is for disposal and what can be reused or recycled to reduce our “ecological footprint” on our environment for the benefit of our future generations. We make every effort to sort, separate, and send materials to their special “places” or stations/depots for reuse and recycling.
We Will Do the Job Right!
We will make an assessment of the debris and materials and give you an upfront, no-obligation price. We are a local grassroots company that offers low-cost services… not some high overhead franchise, so the savings are offset to you.
Once we have agreed on a price, we will dig in and get the work done. Our trucks are equipped with all the necessary equipment to remove the debris and materials for disposal and recycling.
The Junk Box is fully covered by WCB and liability insurance.
A Few Commonly Asked Questions:
What is the longest length material you can take in your truck?
Our Junk Box trucks can accommodate up to 12 feet (or 3.66 meters) in length. If you have something longer than that, let us know and we can bring the appropriate saw to cut lengths that will work.
Do I need to remove nails from the wood before The Junk Box arrives?
There is no need to remove the nails from wood. We are very adept and experienced at handling such materials and have all the equipment and safety gear handy. We sometimes will do small demolitions of sheds, fences, and children’s play apparatus.
Do you take big chunks of concrete?
As long as the concrete is in manageable pieces that two of our trained Junk Box personnel can safely load onto a truck.
