Upon completing a revamp of our downtown office space, I was left with a bunch of broken down furniture and other items that needed to go “somewhere”, but clogging up the landfill was not something I wanted to happen. I contacted Eamonn at Green Coast Rubbish and was immediately impressed with his friendly and helpful attitude and his guarantee that they would be able to recycle most of the removed items. Although it was a small job, he was willing to assist immediately and work within my timelines. Upon arrival at the office, he and his 2 co-workers were professional, friendly and focused. I pointed out what needed to be removed and the job was done quietly and quickly with no disruption to the office workers. Before I knew it, the job was complete and I barely even knew the crew was there.
Eamonn and his staff were a pleasure to work with and I will definitely contact them in the future for any of my removal needs.

I highly recommend the team from Green Coast Rubbish. When it comes down to getting the job done, they will do it – and they will do it in a friendly, open, and professional way. Eamonn and his partner did a fantastic job cleaning up our old office as we were in the process of moving to a different location and under great pressure for time. Not only were they perfectly on time but they also worked incredibly fast and efficient separating all the different waste products and materials and disposed of them in an environmentally conscious way. These guys saved my day! I wish them nothing but the best for their business in the future.

Recently, I cleaned out my garage, amassing a pile of junk/recyclables. Then my ancient freezer completely broke down. I turned to the Recycling Council of BC for assistance. One of the two responsible recycling companies they recommended was Green Coast Rubbish.
I contacted both companies, ultimately deciding on Green Coast Rubbish. They were first to respond in a very timely manner, and subsequent communications were clear, concise, friendly, and professional.
Green Coast Rubbish (Eamonn and his assistant, Michael) arrived on the date and time arranged. They introduced themselves and shook hands with me. They were both neatly dressed. One of the first things out of their truck was a trashcan, brooms and a shovel, which really impressed me, as they were obviously intent on cleaning up the remaining debris after they finished loading.
Eamonn and Michael worked quickly and efficiently. The final cost to me was a bit more than the ‘sight unseen’ estimate Eamonn made – but less than I expected to pay for the volume and weight of the products being removed.
It was a most excellent and positive experience. The real bonus is that they recycle, meaning a large portion of my junk will not end up in landfill.
Without hesitation, I happily and highly recommend Green Coast Rubbish. I wish Green Coast Rubbish every success.

“With the daunting task ahead of me of cleaning out a huge crawlspace with 25 years worth of belongings, I was fortunate enough to come across this amazing team to help me out. Not only were they sympathetic to my plight, but really showed their true colours in their promptness, attention to detail, and dedication in having to stay very late to finish the job. I was particularly impressed with their cheerful and helpful attitudes despite the overwhelming amount of work presented to them. Eamonn and Mike were extremely professional in all ways and worth every penny! I have already called on them once again since that day and will definitely be in touch in future.”

When we needed a fast, full service solution to cleaning out my mother’s apartment in North Vancouver, Green Coast Rubbish was the answer. Not only were Eamonn and his staff very friendly and helpful, they juggled their schedule to meet our timelines given that I was there from out of town and had limited availability. The job was done quickly and efficiently and our expectations were more than met.
It was a pleasure doing business with Green Coast Rubbish and I would highly recommend this service.

“I was very impressed with the fast and friendly service I received from Eamonn and Green Coast Rubbish. We had 2 large trees removed from our garden. They worked methodically, were efficient, didn’t break any of the surrounding plants or shrubbery and mostly importantly, they left absolutely no mess at all! They were a pleasure to work with and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.”

Eamon, this is a long overdue thank you for the great work you did for us. You transformed an ugly sight of mishmash fencing and scruffy greenery into something park like. By taking away the rubbish you set the scene to then limb up the towering confers, thereby letting light in. I immediately heaved a sigh of relief. Your skill in pruning properly, without leaving notches, etc. was excellent. You showed real attention to detail which in turn created a tranquil Japanese garden pathway, which I know was not your first intention, but was the bonus!
Thanks again for being professional and caring about what you do.

I loved dealing with Eamonn & Green Coast Rubbish. I was cleaning out my garage, and wanted an eco-friendly way of disposing of old computers and electronic equipment, and found Green Coast Rubbish. They responded promptly to my request, were timely, affordable, and Eamonn let me know that the hard drives would be “wiped” (i.e. erased) and then environmentally disposed of. I would definitely use their services again, and as a long time home owner in North Vancouver, I really appreciate finding a great company with great people – Eamonn & Green Coast definitely fall into that category, and as I said, I’ll definitely be using them again.

Green Coast Rubbish’s website promises prompt, courteous and hassle-free service and that is exactly what this company delivers. Their work is meticulous. The honesty, intelligence, work ethic, speed and reliability Green Coast brought to our worksite made them an absolute pleasure to work with. Quite frankly, we were astounded at the quality of service provided. Excellence is this company’s standard and we look forward to working with them on future projects.

As the Canadian Project Manager for BCBG Maxazria Group I build all our retail locations throughout Canada and have encountered many different types of sub trades. I have had many a experience with sub’s that are not willing to work past their union hours, complain when asked to do something out of their required contract or just merely help their client out. With that said, I had the privilege of being introduced to Green Coast Rubbish at Metropolis Metro Center in Burnaby, BC in November of 2008. Owner Eamonn Duignan and his brother Cein were professional, courteous and extremely efficient hard workers. They never complained, went out of their way to assist me and my superintendent and were respectful of all the non-construction staff on site. I was so impressed with Green Coast Rubbish that I immediately contracted them for my next project in Surrey BC at Grandview Corners. Again, these gentlemen were professionals who worked hard and assisted me in all that I asked of them. I will not only recommend them on a professional level but will vouch for them on a personal one as friends. As a matter of fact I have already planned to contract them for two projects in 2009.

Quality workmanship is not always easy to find and when we find it we tend to hang on to it and reward the appropriate organizations with repeat work. Green Coast is one of those organizations that we believe is in the top tier of that class of companies. For the past 18 months we have used Green Coast for a variety of cleanup jobs including renovation demolition, construction cleanup, fall and spring garden cleanup as well as obsolete appliance removal. We have since developed a trusting relationship whereby simple phone calls translate into “job complete”, on time and at a price we considered reasonable… reliability is important and they have it in abundance!

As a green builder/renovator we are very attentive to the waste streams originating from our construction projects. In order that we keep our projects as green as possible we give stringent and often complicated instructions to our waste haulers. We have used Green Coast Rubbish on several occasions with great success. They listen to our requests and are diligent in carrying out these instructions, helping us to fulfill the standards and environmental regulations required of us today.

We have recommended Green Coast Rubbish to our customers in the past when we are booked up and cannot do the job. The response has been very good. They provide excellence service at reasonable rates. We have been doing this for the past two or three years, and will continue to do so, when the need arises.

It is with the greatest of pleasure that I write about the company Green Coast Rubbish and in particular about Eamonn as to the efficient and expeditious manner in which the removal of my demolition/renovation rubbish was handled. Originally called to remove the demolition rubbish, I quickly realized that this young man was capable and eager to complete the gutting of the remainder of my condo. Not only did he arrive on the date and at the set time, but his polite manner was only exceeded by his diligent hard work. In this day and age of negligent and often unreserved insolence on the part of many workers it was refreshing to deal with someone with an ethical, positive, and hard working attitude. Subsequently, I asked him to return on two other occasions.
I recommend Eamonn and Green Coast Rubbish Removal without a doubt and have done so to several friends here on the North Shore. I look forward to his return.

A property I recently took over had junk scattered in the 36″ high crawl space which was left from the previous owner. I called around looking for someone to not only clean it out but also haul it away for me. Not only was Green Coast Rubbish available and willing to do this job, they were the ONLY one out of a handful of companies willing to clean out the crawl space. Apparently this is a job that nobody likes to do, yet Green Coast Rubbish was willing to tackle it. They showed up on time, cleaned out my crawl space and hauled the junk away for environmentally friendly disposal of the various materials pulled out. At the time my crawl didn’t have lighting (a flashlight was used) and I don’t think that anyone had been in it in several years – not a place anyone wants to be. Therefore, I was very appreciative of the prompt, courteous service. Thank you!
