I am a new member in this forum and this is going to be my first thread here. I am not sure whether it is the right place to ask this question. But I hope someone here can answer this. We have planned to renovate to our garden. The main thing I want to do is to replace the pathway tiles with lawn grass. And I want to pave natural stone tile pieces. But I am concerned about how to handle the junk especially the concrete debris. My neighbor suggested me to hire any junk removal company to take care of this. But he don’t have any experience with such companies. When searched google, I found a service called Red Bins (http://www.redbins.ca ). The price shown on their website were affordable. I just want to know if anyone here have had experience with them. I asked this because my boss had a bad experience with a similar company in Toronto. What do you guys think? Should I contact them? I am open to any other suggestions.

You may find a more relevant and timely response to your request using your Facebook or Twitter accounts.

Check online reviews on local directories for the companies you find when searching online.

I did a quick search for the term "junk removal toronto" and got this result on Google Local Search:


Doesn't look like many customer reviews.

Thank you so much for the quick response. I have checked in Google but got a number of listings. It is pretty hard to choose the right one. Let me ask this on Facebook.
Thanks again.

Wcruz, where in Canada do you live?

I went to the website. It looks pretty decent. We employ services of a strikingly similar junk removal agency called Gorilla Bins, which is concentrated in the GTA. We had to undertake a bathroom renovation project 2 months back and rented out a bin from these guys and this is how they operate:
1. You sort out the trash or anything that you don't need [be it debris in your case] and it doesn't have to be sorted on the basis of nature of materials, whether they're recyclable or not.
2. You choose a bin and there are different variants based on the volume of the bin.
3. You'll know when they're at your doorsteps and they'll take it from there. The end.

Hope that you've found what you're looking for :)

I found an article related with your topic.
Maybe this one will be helpful for you.

Moderator comment:
It is NOT okay to simply steal content from other sites and post it here.
It's called intellectual property theft and it carries HUGE penalties on conviction.

Here's a link to the original article:

When contracting with a local company, don't be afraid to ask for a reference. If they don't have any local customers who are willing to answer a phone call and spend half a minute describing their impression of the business, that's a problem.

Conversely, when you provide good service don't be afraid to ask "May I use you as a reference? Can I put potential clients in contact with you?" Depending on your business and industry it may be "Can you think of anyone I could call that might need the ____ I did for you? If you give me a ____ (name, number,email)____ I promise to give them the same level of ____ I did for you." Either way, as for a reference or referral. If you aren't, are you serious about what you do? Bringing this full circle, if the contractor you are talking to hasn't asked his clients, and can't provide you with a reference, is he really serious about what he does? Find someone who is.
