Skip hire entrepreneur launches junk recycling business

A Welsh skip hire boss based in Newport, South Wales, has launched a brand new venture offering convenient junk collection and recycling services in the region. From removing unwanted to sofas to clearing out old garages, Junk4Joy plans to compete with the domestic skip hire industry by offering an environmentally friendly means by which to dispose of waste as they aim to recycle 90% of the junk collected.

James Norvill has a wealth of experience in the waste management business having operated the skip hire company, GD Environmental Services, for many years. It is this experience which led the businessman to note a gap in the market for an eco-friendly solution to the disposal of domestic junk.

Initially Junk4Joy will employ eight full time staff with two specialist vehicles operating in the South West Wales region, Mr Norvill revealed in a recent interview with a Welsh newspaper. The new service has already undergone a full trial in the area where it undertook a highly diverse range of jobs, discovering there was definite call for the service in the area.

As well as offering an environmentally friendly alternative to disposing of unwanted household items, as Junk4Joy aims to recycle 90% of the waste collected, the new scheme also hopes to help reduce the problem of fly tipping which cost Welsh taxpayers £2.29 million last year alone.
