How Does a Purging Party Work?


Rather Than a One-Off House Call, We Treat Your Entire Neighbourhood Like a Single Client

YYC Junk has almost certainly visited one of your neighbours before.  

We pass on massive savings to you by servicing the entire area at once, since drive times, fuel expenditure, and man-hours spent in traffic are all much lower.


Our normal pricing starts at $100.  However, registering for a Purge date drops that price to $25 per cubic yard on almost all items! 

A cubic yard is about the size of a standard washing machine, or one queen size mattress (without a pillow topper).


Register and get a free, no obligation quote before we touch your stuff. 

Our Purge Pricing is unbeatable.  You can’t rent a truck and haul your own stuff for these prices!


Don’t want to move that massive couch or TV yourself?  You don’t have to!  

Purge events are full service. Let us lift and move everything for you.  Just point at what you want gone- we do the rest!


There Won’t Be a Better Opportunity to Declutter


Purging Parties allow residents, no matter their financial situation, age, or level of mobility, to get rid of their junk.

Hot water tanks, renovation debris, couches, tables, china cabinets, barbecues, household items, large and small appliances, mattresses- if you can think of it, we almost certainly take it!

Our donations and recycling program ensures that these items end up where they belong.

YYC Junk is Calgary’s specialist in recycling, reusing, and donating whenever possible.

Because of the hassle, most people have a stash of items they don’t really need.

A Purge Party is the ideal opportunity to clear out the stuff in those dark corners that people know they don’t need, but can’t seem to get around to dispose of.


What If Items Are Still in Good Condition?


YYC Junk’s award-winning process focuses on diverting items from Calgary’s landfills.

Because we strongly believe in the importance of reducing wasteful dumping, we recycle and donate whenever possible.

Why not let your gently used “junk” go to someone who could use it?

We donate items that are still in great condition it to one of our community partners.

What we can donate:

– linens and towels
– clothing
– furniture and appliances
– toys and games
– books
– unused construction material
– lots more


 Simple to Arrange


Get rid of as much or as little as you want.

On the day of the Purging Party, have any small items in a pile accessible to our crew.

Our team removal all large items, at no extra charge!

Smaller items:

To streamline the junk removal process, please put small items in a pile or in bags in the garage, driveway, front doorway, or an other easily accessible place.

Larger items:

Furniture, televisions, and other heavy stuff can stay right where it is – we’ll do the heavy lifting for you! We believe in making Purging Parties accessible for everyone.

What kind of time commitment is required?

The average amount of time necessary from each participant, aside from deciding what stays or goes, is roughly 5 minutes.

One minute to register, two to three minutes for our team to load the stuff (larger items may take a bit longer), and one minute to pay.

Have other plans for your day? No problem! If the junk is accessible, you don’t even have to be there.

Book your quote and removal online – no credit card required!
