Originally the term given to drug users, ( especially heroin users) early in the twentieth centery, who supported their habit by collecting and selling scrap metal. Hence the term got started by the drug addicts penchant for collecting "junk" rather than the "junk" (drugs) they used.
The Junkie is out collecting scrap again he must be in need of a fix.
