Our Story

How One of Ottawa’s Leading
Residential Waste Removal Companies Started

1-888 Dr. Waste is your go-to residential waste removal company, providing safe and cost-effective waste and junk removal services. Best of all, it’s easy! We get rid of unwanted household and commercial junk with surgical efficiency and a friendly smile.

Founded in the fall of 2006 by Kris Hodgins, 1-888 Dr. Waste began as a solution to the waste challenges Kris saw in the city of Ottawa. The ever-growing need for residential and commercial waste removal presented an opportunity. Using his existing experience within the industry, Kris started 1-888 Dr. Waste and got to work cleaning things up. A little over a decade later, Kris’ one-man operation has grown into one of Ottawa’s leading residential waste removal companies, and it continues to expand.
