What is Fresh Start?

Fresh Start is an eco-friendly junk removal and disposal company committed to helping home owners, bulding managers, and construction contractors rid themselves of unwanted items. As strong believers of Reduce-Reuse-Recycle we do what we can to reduce our impact on the environment by donating as much as we can to charity and recycling as much as possible. Our vehicles are fueled by natural gas and we follow Vancouver’s non-idling laws by turning our engines off after 3 minutes or less!

Practicing what we preach our Fresh Start team is also environmentally conscious. Although, like most, we occasionally drive, for the most part we bike, rollerblade, or use public transit. As members of David Suzuki’s Nature Challenge we keep up to date and participate in the little things that make a difference. From saying no to plastic bags to making sure computers are off, not on stand-by, we do what we can to help the environment.

We’d love to help you! Whether you need to clean out that cluttered garage, dispose of renovation debris, or recycle your old appliances, Fresh Start can help. Check out our website and call to book your pick up today!

  1. Dear Fresh Start Recycling,

    I thought you’d be interested in this event on Tuesday, June 8 to highlight the success of BC’s e-waste recycling program.

    Cheers,

    WINNERS ANNOUNCED FOR 30,000 TONNE CHALLENGE ART CONTEST

    BC student submissions convey impact of electronic waste

    BC elementary and high school art students were challenged to portray 30,000 tonnes of e-waste, which is the amount of obsolete computers, monitors, printers and fax machines that have been recycled through our provincial e-waste program. Through drawing and sculptures, the art conveys the weight and impact e-waste can have on our planet if not recycled responsibly.

    Submissions will be on display at the Harbour Centre SFU campus throughout the week, starting Tuesday, June 8, and prizes will be awarded for first, second and third place entries in both poster and sculpture categories.

    “I hope my project can inspire people to stop throwing out their electronics and recycle them.”
