Building, construction, residential renovation and demolition waste makes up more than 80% of the waste going to Auckland region’s landfills. Since 2005, Junk Run’s construction waste removal has been part of the solution to help reduce this unsustainable statistic. We have built up extensive resource recovery and responsible recycler networks to ensure over 70%* of what we collect (* on average) is diverted away from landfill. We are award winning Sustainable Business Network members and are finalists in the 2019 “Going Circular Award”. We are also active members of the New Zealand Green Building Council.
We may love rubbish, but we hate waste. That’s why we are leading the change, tackling the way New Zealander’s think of – and deal with – waste. We do everything we can to reuse, repurpose and recycle unwanted construction and demolition waste. Furthermore, we try to encourage New Zealanders to consider more sustainable options than ordering a skip or hiring a bin. Choosing Junk Run is much easier and more cost effective – and reduces your environmental impact.
