When you use 1800-GOT-JUNK?, all you have to do is point at the rubbish you want gone, and we do the rest. As the world’s leading full-service rubbish removal company, we do things a little differently:
We offer same-day service (and fast, friendly, on-time pickup of your rubbish)
We’ll take almost any kind of non-hazardous rubbish you have: furniture, computers, electronics, mattresses, appliances, green waste and more
We’ll get the items from wherever they are and clean up the mess afterwards
We don’t just dispose of your rubbish – we recycle it or donate it to worthy causes
When we say we bring full-service rubbish removal to Adelaide, we mean it; the only effort on your part is booking the appointment.
Tell us when you want us to come over to your house by phone or by booking online and we’ll book you a two-hour arrival window. Your time is valuable, so we give you a call 15 – 30 minutes before the window to let you know exactly when we’ll show up.
Point to the items you want taken away and we’ll give you an upfront, all-inclusive quote.
If you like the price we quote, we get to work packing, loading, and disposing of all the rubbish you want removed – we’ll even handle the clean-up!
We always get asked: “where does my rubbish go?”
We do our best not to dispose of rubbish at the landfill. If the goods we collect are in good condition, they are taken to Goodwill, The Salvation Army, St. Vincent DePaul, or one of many other charities in Adelaide, to be given a second-life.
If the goods are not in donatable condition, they are taken to a place called Alternative Fuels at Wingfield, where the entire contents gets fed through massive machinery and shredded to a fine consistency. It is then compacted into giant ‘rubbish bricks’, and freighted down to Adelaide Brighton Cement Works where it powers their kilns.
Rubbish only goes to the landfill as a last resort – we promise!
We have found that there’s always rubbish that needs removing! Whether you’re spring cleaning, making way for new furniture, moving in the Adelaide area, finalising an estate cleanout, have a large pile of construction or renovation debris you need to get rid of, or cleaning up after messy tenants, there is no job too big or too small for 1800-GOT-JUNK?.
Some of the most common items we take are TVs (and analogue TVs), electronics and electronic waste, mattresses, furniture (like couches and cabinets of all kinds), household appliances, green waste, scrap metals and tyres.
The strangest item we’ve ever collected has to be an extensive doll collection from an unlikely collector. When we say “we take it all”, we really mean it.
Hi there - I’m Emily Foreman, general manager of 1800-GOT-JUNK? in Adelaide.
I fell in love with everything that 1800-GOT-JUNK? stands for, which is why I chose to get in to the junk removal business. 1800-GOT-JUNK? Adelaide has been operating since 2005.
Over the years, we’ve grown to provide rubbish removal in Adelaide, the Gold Coast, Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney. We routinely wow customers from Gawler to Noarlunga, and all suburbs in between, with the same amazing service every 1800-GOT-JUNK? customer receives in Australia and around the world.
Before joining 1800-GOT-JUNK? Adelaide, I worked in the Automotive Industry as a sales rep. I have been in customer service for most of my working life, and pride myself on giving the highest level of service possible. 1800-GOT-JUNK? absolutely sets the standard of customer service in the rubbish removal industry, and I enjoy seeing it resonate with our customers.
Our commitment to the environment is one of my favourite parts of the company. We keep a lot of rubbish out of the tip by donating it to worthy causes, or recycling it at appropriate, safe recycling facilities.
It’s a great feeling knowing that we’re doing our part for the planet’s well-being.
Everyone at 1800-GOT-JUNK? truly believes in what we do and shares the same passion for helping people get their space back, and helping keep unwanted materials out of the landfill. The passion we have is pretty much addictive!
You’ve probably seen our shiny trucks all over Adelaide driving down Greenhill Road from Burnside to Wayville or parked at the parklands near Victoria Park or on Portrush Road. Or, perhaps you’ve seen us doing our famous “Blue Wig Wave” at the Britannia roundabout. Maybe you’ve seen us driving along the Parade through Magill, Norwood, Kent Town and into Adelaide, or you may have seen us parked at AAMI Stadium or Adelaide Oval handing out Junkbucks to cricket, Adelaide Crows or Port Power fans.
Regardless of where, next time you see us around be sure to give us a wave and say hello.
Our very own Emily Foreman (General Manager of 1800-GOT-JUNK? Adelaide) has been nominated to try out for the 2013 Cara Charity TV Challenge.
The Cara Foundation is a South Australian based non-profit organisation that raises much needed funding for people with extreme disabilities. We feel that the State and Commonwealth government provide funding for people with extreme disabilities that doesn’t come close to what they actually need to live, which is why Emily is happy to volunteer and fundraise for the cause.
For the TV Challenge, 12 people are selected to take part in a week long adventure camp that consists of fun activities and fundraising challenges. In order to be selected, Emily must raise a minimum of $10,000 by way of three fundraising events she needs to organise over the next four months.
1800-GOT-JUNK? Adelaide is no stranger to the Cara Charity TV Challenge. In 2012 we sponsored Rick Lane who went on to raise $22,000, the most money that any challenger has raised in the history of Challenge.
In true 1800-GOT-JUNK? fashion, Emily’s plan is simple: beat the record by raising $30,000! Goooooo Emily!
1800-GOT-JUNK? Adelaide owner, Rob Curnow, has been so successful at building the company here in Adelaide that he's expanding and opening up a new franchise in Perth. That's right, Australia, we're EVERYWHERE.
Rob can't wait to offer the same amazing rubbish removal service in Perth that Adelaide residents have come to expect.
Good luck Rob!
