    Ex: I cleared all the junk out of the garage.

    2.Junk food is food that is not good for your health because it is high in fat, sugar, or artificial substances.

    3.Junk mail is mail, usually advertising products or services, that is sent to people although they have not asked to receive it:

    Ex:There's a letter for you and the rest is junk mail.

    4.A junkyard is a place, often a large open area, where useless or unwanted items are left and stored, and sometimes sold.

    trash

    noun [U] 也是不可數

    anything that is worthless and of low quality; waste

    1.A trash bag is a large plastic bag that holds waste.

    2.A trash bin is a large container for holding waste:

    Ex: There were several trash bins behind the store.

    garbage (WASTE)

    noun [U] 還是不可數

    waste material, esp. unwanted food, or a container in which waste is kept

    也有另一個意思

    garbage (NONSENSE)

    noun [U]

    junk and trash還另有動詞的用法

    可以利用我參考資料內的網站去查詢

    雖然是個線上英英字典

    但是意思都還蠻好懂的
