We Haul Junk
Environmental Recycling – Green Junk Removal
There are benefits to the environment when we recycle reusable items. By reducing the amount of waste sent to our landfills, we reduce methane, a potent greenhouse gas and conserve land space. Making new products from recyclables saves production energy and the carbon costs related to industry.
We sort recyclables out of the load before dumping in a landfill. Being aware of the items you can recycle in your municipal curbside green-bin program can help cut down on waste and allows for pre-sorting before we pick up your load. If recycling is unmanageable for you, we will take care of these details for you. Some items are accepted at recycling depots only, making it difficult for recyclers with mobility issues or lack of transportation to haul these items to local drop-off points. If curbside pickup services are not available in your area, we can help. If your recycling is piling up on the back porch, shed, or your yard, we will remove your recycling and other unwanted items for you.
We Do Construction Site Cleanups!

Yard Waste Cleanup
We are ready in any season to help you with your yard cleaning project. Whether you pull your debris to curbside or ask us to load-and-lift from your property, we have the manpower and trucks ready to remove your backyard clutter.
The best time to prune trees and shrubs is in late winter but this can leave truck loads of cut limbs and brush in your yard. Call us any time of the year and we will come and pick up your yard waste, including bagged leaves and grass clippings. Pruning, raking and mowing is only half the job to keeping your landscaping aesthetic. Yard waste pickup and removal is the second half of the job.
If cleaning your back yard of unsightly garbage and debris seems overwhelming, you don’t have to get rid of it yourself. We are here to help. From removing junk on your back porch, to hauling away the junk in your shed, Mitten & Son Junk Removal is ready to go to work for you.
We specialize in removing junk and garbage wherever it is on your property. We haul away branches, ruined fencing and building material. As an alternative to renting expensive dumpsters, hire us to remove your junk anywhere in the Okanagan – from Summerland to Vernon.
Our two-ton truck can pick up one load of garbage or junk instead of six to make our hauling services faster and more efficient for you.
Selling Your Home? Working with a realtor? Both selling and buying can present a yard cleanup challenge. We work with realtors and their clients and landlords for general garbage and debris pickups and yard cleanups. We also assist stratas and property management companies with rental suite cleanouts.
Not Sure What to Do with that Junk?
