What is the Collecte verte?

The Collecte verte is an environmental initiative of the 1-800-GOT-JUNK? Québec, the world’s largest junk removal service. In support of la semaine québécoise de réduction des déchets, 1-800-GOT-JUNK? will collect broken and unused electrical and electronic devices devices and dispose of them in an environmentally friendly manner. This can be your old computer, television or stereo equipment. Since first edition of the event, we diverted and recycled more than 233,5 tons of materials that could have potentially been land-filled.

We will collect your old electric appliances, electronic devices and computer equipment… items that you have been wanting to get rid of but weren’t quite sure what to do with them. The collection is for citizens only.

1-800-GOT-JUNK? will dispose of them in an eco-friendly way and FREE of charge!

It’s time to clean your basement, shed or garage. Free up space! Be good to the environment at the same time!
