The AnyJunk iPhone application allows construction professionals to dispose of waste, in an eco-friendly manner, using an iPhone application. Users record a video of the waste that needs collecting, then the phone’s GPS tells AnyJunk the exact location. A collection time is selected and AnyJunk responds with a quote for the job.
Types of waste that can be collected include furniture, broken appliances, office equipment, refurbishment waste, builders’ rubble and garden refuse. In 2010, 79% of waste collected by AnyJunk was diverted from landfill and the company operates across the UK. Materials are taken to licensed waste transfer stations and recycling facilities or passed on to reuse organisations (including Oxfam and the British Heart Foundation).
