1800-GOT-JUNK? got its start in Vancouver, when university student Brian Scudamore encountered a tight summer job market in Vancouver and started a junk removal service called The Rubbish Boys.

Why use us for rubbish disposal in Adelaide?

When you use 1800-GOT-JUNK?, all you have to do is point at the junk you want gone, and we do the rest. As the world’s leading full-service junk 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, yard 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

What’s the process for booking your rubbish removal in Adelaide?

When we say we bring full-service rubbish removal to Adelaide, we mean it; the only effort on your part is booking the appointment.

  1. 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 youye a call 15 – 30 minutes before the window to let you know exactly when we’ll show up.
  2. 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 you, we get to work packing, loading, and disposing of all the junk you want removed – we’ll even handle the clean-up!

We actively donate and recycle your junk

We always get asked: “where does my junk 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!

When should you call 1800-GOT-JUNK? Adelaide?

We have found that there’s always junk that needs removing! Whether you’re spring cleaning, making way for new furniture, moving in Adelaide or area, finalising a deceased estate in Adelaide, 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, yard debris and auto parts.

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, really mean it.

1800-GOT-JUNK? Adelaide

11 36 Tikalara St.
Regency Park,  SA


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 junk 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 junk out of the dump 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 or a toot and say hello.

Help us with the 2013 Cara Charity TV Challenge

Our very own Emily Foreman (General Manager of 1800-GOT-JUNK? in South Australia) 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!
