Trash is increasingly piling up on the streets of Toronto, Ontario, thanks to the garbage strike that has gone on for almost a week now — and local junk removal businesses are taking advantage of the rare situation to promote their services.
Business has increased tremendously for various junk removal companies such as JustJunk.com, specifically because the strike has left most Toronto residents with absolutely no idea what to do with their trash. With the city desperate to clean up in time for Pride Parade, business has been surging — and will continue to spike in demand as long as the city strike keeps on going on.
There are currently around seven transfer stations open around the city that is accepting both residential and commercial garbage 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
At least one new business has sprung thanks to the opportunity that the garbage strike offers. StrikeGarbage.com seems to have been a direct response to the walkout and is offering sameday garbage removal services in the Northern parts of Toronto.
