About Us

25 August 2020

What

LoveJunk is an online marketplace designed to match people who want to get rid of junk to the nearest licensed waste carrier or reuse organisation with capacity to collect it.  We promote proximity to reduce carbon footprint and cost of pickup. We simplify process and payment to remove hassle and inefficiency. We provide a visual gallery to enable price benchmarking and greater reuse.

How

Create a LoveJunk listing. It’s free to do and only takes a minute. A few photos, a quick description, and the price you want to pay for it to be removed. Nearby collectors registered on the platform can claim your listing at that price or offer an alternative. Once the price is agreed, the collector does the pickup and receives paymenet via the app.  As well as connecting buyers to sellers, LoveJunk ensures collectors are properly licensed and only verified disposal facilities used.

Why

Unscheduled waste collection is an opaque and inefficient market where customers regularly overpay, collectors drive unnecessary miles, reusable items end up being destroyed, and illegal operators continue to flourish. We want to get rid of all of that rubbish and clean up the junk removal business.

Who

We are a group of sustainability lovers from all around the world on a mission to make rubbish clearance cheaper, safer and more sustainable. Apologies if you’re expecting cute photos of us as babies, a list of quirky hobbies, or our favourite office nicknames. We’re quite a private bunch. But to reassure you we mean business, below are a few of the organisations where we have studied and for whom we have worked in the past.
