Ottawa Appliance Removal The ultimate Guide

Construction sites don’t just clean themselves — there are always plenty of materials left after a construction job that you need to make sure are removed carefully. Wood, brick, drywall — you name it, and it’ll all result in clutter after a construction project if not dealt with appropriately.

Whether you are renovating your home or office, after any construction work you need the assistance of waste and junk removal experts.

Luckily, Junk Ninja is here to help you! We are a full-service junk removal company with ample experience in residential and commercial junk removal as well as construction waste removal. We’ve been in the business for a decade and offer Baeumler approved waste pick up services.

We are based in Ottawa, but you can check out our services areas to see what GTA cities we service, which includes Cambridge, Kitchener, and Mississauga. Whenever or wherever you need us, we are happy to serve all of your junk removal needs.

Whenever in the construction process you decide you want us, we’re here to provide our assistance. Whether you need drywall, tile or debris removed, all you need to do is reach out — we do it all, and we’ll even give the site a good sweeping after we’re done to ensure that your space is left clean!

Haven’t you ever heard that a good cook keeps their space clean in between preparing dishes? The same rings true when handling a construction project.

We know that it is essential to not only do a clean up after a construction project but during it as well. It is crucial to effectively remove waste during construction work to ensure contractors can do their work effectively.

Here are the 10 main reasons why it’s imperative to make sure your construction site is waste-free after a big job and even in between major stages:

It’s Motivating

There are fewer things more motivating than a clean workspace. If you have us come in between major construction phases, we’ll make sure that the next people to start working will have a fresh slate.

There is no reason to work in a space with sawdust or with materials that are no longer being used. We want your contractors to stay motivated. Let us come in and do a cleanup so that everyone can feel positive and excited about the next step in your construction project.

Professional construction waste removal is just as motivating when the job is completed, as a clean site sets the stage for a fresh slate moving forward. What better a way to get excited about a new house renovation than to have everything looking spick and span after all the hard work is done?

Safety Conditions

The clutter of half-used materials and debris in your construction space can make for severely unsafe working conditions.

The last thing you want is for discarded materials to become a fire hazard, or for someone to trip over a misplaced stray tool while on the job. According to AVIVA, 42,00 falls are suffered by workers annually — and two-thirds of that number is caused by tripping or slipping.

A waste-free construction site is just as imperative after the job. Materials left unattended or improperly handled can also be a safety hazard. Construction waste can include hazardous substances like lead and asbestos, so it’s best to have all remnants professionally removed to prevent any long-term health issues or harm to your space.

Ensures Material Is Handled Responsibly

Construction site waste involves a lot of different materials that can be hazardous if improperly disposed of. We are proud to be a green company that handles each and every piece we collect with care. Junk Ninja is dedicated to donating, recycling and diverting the materials we collect.

When we gather waste from your construction site, we make sure that everything is properly sorted through so that items get recycled properly, re-usable items get donated, and hazardous materials are handled responsibly.

In fact, we are partnered with Hydro Ottawa to divert and recycle fluorescent and compact fluorescent bulbs. We are constantly looking for new opportunities and initiatives to hold people and companies accountable for their environmental practices.

Learn about our sophisticated recycling policies to better understand how we can ensure that your materials are dealt with appropriately and in a way that is environmentally friendly.

It Helps to Track Material Usage

During the construction process, you can expect countless pieces of wood, screws and other materials to go missing. If you keep your construction waste free you can better manage the treatment of these items.

Junk removal can also help to save materials, as doing a major clean up provides motivation to make sure that no usable materials like uncut pieces of wood go to waste. If you don’t keep these materials for re-use, we can donate or recycle them to ensure it doesn’t all go to the landfill to take up space.

It’s Efficient

Keeping your construction site waste-free makes the entire process that much more proficient. It ensures seamless work and makes the transition from one phase to the next that much easier.

If you save the cleanup for the end, choose to utilize a construction removal service to save you the headache of re-organizing materials and removing heavy items from the site.

Construction is a long process as is — why make it drag on even longer by cleaning up the site by yourself? We are your local source for construction waste removal, and we promise to make your cleanup process as efficient as possible.

More Space to Work

Doing construction in close quarters isn’t exactly an ideal work environment. If you opt for construction waste removal in between stages, contractors are given more space to work. Clutter and waste just take up room, so enlisting the help of professional removal services ensures that there is enough room to keep working.

Even after a job gets completed a construction site can continue to look like a construction site

if you don’t put the time and resources towards restoring the space.

How can you expect to enjoy the new addition to your house if you don’t take the time to remove all of your construction waste properly? That’s why you call us.

Leftover Debris Can Cause Future Problems

Construction debris can be potentially harmful to our drain systems as well as the environment. If debris from construction work enters basins, it can impact rivers, lakes and streams. This can harm both animals and the eco-system.

Debris is also potentially harmful for your house; if debris gets caught in drains it can result in blockages that often lead to flooding — which is another mess on its own. It’s best to use professional services to ensure that your construction site is debris free. After all, you want to prevent any additional problems from ensuing after a big construction project.


After a major construction project, you’ll be stuck with remnants of materials, discarded tools, and more. It’s in your best interest to keep the space clean so that you can make the most of your new space.

It’s also worth mentioning that not cleaning properly after construction work can be hazardous if there are any toxic materials left on site or any materials that have been discarded of improperly.  You want to make sure that your site is cleaned thoroughly so that you aren’t left with any nuisances.
