What Is Junk Removal?
Junk removal is an industry designed for and dedicated to helping remove clutter from people’s lives in an efficient and responsible way. Unlike standard garbage pickup where you put your waste into a trash bin at your Connecticut home or business and it is emptied on a weekly basis or when it is full, junk removal is typically relied on for bigger cleaning projects and getting rid of things that your regular garbage service will not.
For example, if you are cleaning out your basement or garage in the West Hartford area, you may find that everything you want to get rid of won’t fit in your trash bins and some of it they won’t even accept. In this case, you would call a local junk removal company to remove your unwanted items and haul them away. The same would apply if you have large or bulky items like toys, appliances, and furniture that you want gone from your home.
Junk removal is also needed by contractors who are building, remodeling, or renovating a house. They will either hire a junk removal company for a full-service pick up and disposal service or rent a dumpster that they fill and have taken care of when it’s full. Having a dumpster on site gives them a convenient place to throw broken tiles, pieces of flooring, scrap drywall, and other construction debris.
Generally, junk removal is provided in one of two ways. There is a full-service junk removal where you have a junk removal team of 2-3 people come to your home, residential or commercial property, carry your unwanted stuff out, load it into a dumpster or truck, haul it away, and dispose of it responsibly for you. It’s like hiring a mover only this time your stuff goes away for good!
The second type is self-serve junk removal where you rent a dumpster or garbage bin from a junk removal company. The company delivers the empty dumpster to your home or property, you fill it with your trash, old furniture, unwanted appliances, electronic equipment, TVs, clothes, and household items. When you are finished with the bin or it’s full, you call us to come pick it up and take care of what’s inside for you.
When you have a major cleanup or have big bulky items to get rid of, a junk removal service is the way to go.
History Of Junk Removal
As long as people have been on the planet, they have been producing waste but it wasn’t until the middle of the 18th Century that organized strategies for dealing with waste began to take shape. The first waste management system was established in London, England, where industrialization brought high population density and waste was literally piling up in the streets. At the time, though, waste management was less about cleanliness and health and more a way of collecting coal ash (or “dust”) that could be sold at a profit for brick-making purposes.
Eventually, waste management became focused on improving the health of Londoners who were suffering and dying from diseases like cholera due to poor sanitation. Sir Edwin Chadwick led the battle for waste management reforms and eventually, the Nuisance Removal and Disease Prevention Act of 1846 and the Public Health Act of 1875 were put in place. These and further reforms meant regulated clean up of the streets and sanitation were law. For the first time, households were required to use a receptacle for their waste and set it on the street for weekly pick up and incineration. And thus, garbage day was born.
These early laws and systems cleared the way for the waste management systems we have today and we continue to improve them in order to reduce our impact on this planet. Today, Canada is adopting extensive recycling and composting programs in an effort to minimize the amount of waste that ends up in our over-extended landfills and create a sustainable waste management system that values reuse, recycling, and repurposing over disposal.
Landfill stress is a serious issue. Our existing landfills are overflowing but citizens and community residents do not want a landfill site in their backyards. With our communities growing, there is little land available to create or expand our landfills to accommodate the increase in waste. The public has become hyper-aware of the impact of their waste and demand better, more sustainable solutions.
A1 West Hartford Junk Removal is passionate about socially responsible waste management. Our teams are dedicated to making sure your junk does not contribute to the landfill stress here in Connecticut.

The best solution to landfill stress and sustainable waste management is to work on ways to recycle everything we can. From wood, metal, and paper, furniture, electronics, and plastics, virtually everything that isn’t perishable can be recycled today. These materials are then sold back to manufacturers who turn them into new products. There are depots all over Connecticut that you can take your junk to be sorted and properly recycled including:
- E-waste Handling Depots for electronics, computers, and TVs
- Construction materials handling depots for wood, and building materials to be sorted for reuse or recycling
- Steel and Scrap Metal Recycling Depots where steel and other metals are sorted for recycling and reuse; some will even pay you for it!
- Bottle Depots that take in your glass and glass bottles, and pop cans for cash
- Plastic and Paper recycling depots for everything else
Recycling has so many benefits. For starters, rather than use raw materials to make single-use items like paper towels and toilet paper, pizza boxes, and glass, recycling enables us to manufacture them from used materials instead of depleting our natural resources.
Many of the items we use are made of recycled materials, at least partially. This process creates jobs, reduces energy usage because manufacturers don’t need to start from scratch with raw materials, and cuts down on landfill strain.
What Is Hazardous Waste?
One of the greatest challenges to sustainable waste management, recycling and socially conscious junk removal is hazardous waste.
Hazardous waste is defined as as chemicals, products, and byproducts that are potentially hazardous to the environment and human health. They may represent an immediate danger, such as ability to burn skin on contact, or longer-term environmental or human health risks due to accumulation and persistence of toxic substances in the environment.”
These items are banned from the landfill and cannot be picked up by municipal garbage collection or handled by a junk removal company. For the most part, an average household will have very little, if any hazardous waste. Hazardous items you may have include gasoline, batteries, sharps, pesticides, flea collars, medications, paint, and anything that is labelled as corrosive, explosive, flammable, or poisonous.
Cleaning products, varnishes, motor oil (or other automotive fluids), pesticides, herbicides, and paints all qualify as hazardous waste and should not be thrown away in a trash bin or dumpster. Instead, they should be taken to a municipal or provincial hazardous waste handling facility near you. We have connections with federally and provincially approved hazardous waste handling facilities throughout Connecticut. We can help you get rid of any hazardous waste you have safely and responsibly.
