It isn’t easy being fluorescent!

Being fluorescent may sound exciting – you get to be dazzling and bright, used in nearly every home, office around the world in the form of light bulbs and lighting strips and you can be all shapes, sizes, and colours- being fluorescent may seem cool.

However, in the absence of alternative disposal techniques, fluorescent tubes have traditionally been disposed to landfill.

There are more than 100 million fluorescent tubes and lamps used in the UK each year. The mercury from only one fluorescent tube can contaminate up to 30,000 litres of water beyond a safe level for drinking.

No longer is landfill an acceptable route for lamps. Even though each lamp contains only small levels of mercury, the sheer number of lamps being disposed of, could harm the environment and water table.

At Junk-It we can safely dispose of fluorescent light bulbs and all your rubbish that cannot be disposed of in a skip. We ensure that 82% of what we uplift from any rubbish collection in Glasgow, junk removal job in Edinburgh or a flat clearance in Aberdeen is reused and recycled.

All it takes is 4 steps- call, book a time, our friendly uniformed team collects your junk in our specialised trucks and then we recycle it! So call us today and get junk disposed off in the right way!

Fantastic experience today. Mikey and Dominic were professional, tidy and incredibly quick. They were great with my little one too. Couldn't recommend them more. Top lads and very reasonably priced.

Amazing service from Junk-It, from making appointment, day before, getting confirmation via email, getting call 1/2 hour before and the delightful Mikey and Pete arriving bang on time. Mikey and Pete assessed all the items and advised price, then removed the items really quick with no issues. I would highly recommend Junk-It and will be using them again . Thank you Jill
