505-Junk 2023 Winner

Top Innovator

505-Junk is a full-service junk removal and recycling business serving the entire Metro Vancouver area. They service residential, construction, and commercial clients. However, they are radically different than other junk removal services in how they do pricing and their commitment to sustainability.

What makes them an innovator:

  • They developed a custom truck equipped with onboard weighing systems, enabling them to do on-site billing by exact weight. This increases overall transparency in the waste management sector, with construction and real estate clients benefiting the most.
  • The company has hauled over 50 million pounds of waste and has numerous measures in place to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
  • 505-Junk is the first of its kind to build an onboard weighing system on trucks and has national expansion plans, focusing on corporate growth rather than franchise expansion.

We are constantly innovating, whether it’s testing new technology, or inventing our own. 505-Junk is widely recognized as a leader in the construction industry for entrepreneurial leadership and environmentally-friendly measures, and innovation should be the third piece to this triangle.
