505-Junk Recognized as One of Canada’s Top 25 Innovators in Construction by SiteNews

Vancouver, British Columbia – September 7, 2023  In a significant milestone for 505-Junk, we are thrilled to announce that SiteNews has acknowledged our hard work, honouring us as one of the distinguished “Top 25 Innovators in Construction” for 2023. This recognition highlights our unwavering commitment to innovation, one of our five core values, and underscores our dedication to serving our clients and the environment with cutting-edge solutions.

As a company founded on the principles of innovation, by two young entrepreneurs, Barry Hartman and Scott Foran, 505-Junk has continuously pushed the boundaries of what’s possible. One of our pioneering achievements was becoming the first company to equip our trucks with government-certified scales. This groundbreaking initiative allowed us to charge our clients based on weight, offering a fair and transparent pricing model that sets us apart in the industry. We believe in providing our customers with accurate and cost-effective solutions, and our use of government-certified scales has revolutionised the way we deliver our services.

“Innovation is at the core of what we do at 505-Junk. Our mission was, and continues to be, not only to provide a transparent service, but transform an industry that was ripe for disruption. Charging by exact weight for our services is what’s right for our clients, and makes our employees feel better about the work that they do. That’s what is important to us.” said Barry Hartman, one of the co-founders of 505-Junk.

As we celebrate this recognition by SiteNews, we want to thank our amazing team and loyal customers. Their trust and support have helped us focus on innovation and transparency, which led us to achieve this great milestone.
