What Do I Need to Do?
Do I have to be on-site?
Absolutely not. If our Purge Pros can access the junk that you want removed we can look at the junk, tell you the cost of removal, remove the junk, and take payment over the phone via credit card. You can even stay home and not have any face to face interaction with anyone if you don’t want to.
How soon should I register for my neighbourhood Purge Party?
We recommend registering for your local Purge date as soon as possible, as we have limited spots available. We only purge each neighbourhood once per year so if you want something removed, now’s your chance.
Where does my junk go?
We prioritize donating items to our charitable partners or recycling them. If your junk is truly junk, we will properly dispose of it at a designated recycling location or at the landfill.
How do I get ready for you?
To ensure a quick and efficient pick up, please gather smaller items together in boxes or bags in one accessible spot either inside or outside.
Our crew will take care of the heavy lifting of items such as couches, appliances, and televisions.
Please ensure appliances are disconnected, empty, drained, and ready to go.
Taking doors off the hinges, hand railing removal, and other home modifications necessary for junk removal may incur an extra charge.
We recommend making sure any areas the crew needs to access indoors be cleared of furniture and debris, for example shoe racks, decorative rugs, and things hanging on the walls.
Your animal friends:
Please ensure your pets are secured somewhere inside that doesn’t need to be accessed for junk removal.
We are able to take renovation debris as long as it has already been bagged and moved to an easy-to-grab place.
Do you take chemicals or food waste?
No, unfortunately chemicals and food waste require special licensing to transport and dispose of. For a list of what we do and do not take, see above.
