Plant a tree with Junk-it Scotland

What does a house clearance in Edinburgh have to do with Golden Eagles?

Picture shows an aeriel shot of the Scottish Highlands with the text 1539 trees in this grove, Junk-it Ltd. For every truck we fill, we plant a tree in partnership with Trees for Life.

Here at Junk-it we do more than just pick up junk. If you book a house clearance with us, not only do you get a professional house clearance service. We also donate or recycle the vast majority of the items we remove, and we’ll plant a tree for every truck your items fill!

Junk-it is a proud partner of Trees for Life

Our aim has always been to be as environmentally responsible as possible and we’re always looking for more ways to help the environment. In 2020 we became a partner of Trees For Life. As of May 2023 there are over 1500 trees in the Junk-it grove!

Trees for Life is an organisation based in Scotland which plant native trees helping to restore the Caledonian Forest and rewild the Scottish Highlands. These endeavours create habitats for wildlife such as Red Squirrels, Pine Martins, Capercaillie and Golden Eagles!

So, what does a house clearance in Edinburgh have to do with Golden Eagles? Well, if you book Junk-it to do that house clearance, you could help create and maintain a Golden Eagle friendly environment in the Scottish Highlands!

Jordan and Tony did a fantastic job clearing my late mother's garage, they even broke down and removed some old wooden shelving that my grandfather put up in the 90s! Very professional service, courteous and helpful. I've used this service three times now, and would highly recommend it to anyone 👍

Tony and Jordan from Junk It were invaluable during a recent house and garage clearance. What would have taken me weeks took them a couple of hours! They were professional, polite, and down-to-earth hard workers. I would highly recommend Junk It to anyone.
