Our story is years in the making.
123JUNK began in 2008 when our founder, Collin Wheeler, was working as a move consultant for a local company. At 23 years old, the recent college graduate was struggling to meet his monthly quota. As he refined his sales strategy to convince people to move with him, Collin couldn’t ignore one glaring observation; people didn’t want to pay a moving company to move items that they no longer wished to keep.
Many of these people had tried to give away their unwanted items to charities, only to discover that these organizations were selective in what they would take. They also required the items to be at the curb, putting the labor burden on the client. Turnaround times to have a pickup scheduled sometimes topped weeks or months!
Collin saw this fresh opportunity. He scraped together four thousand dollars and bought an old landscape truck from his uncle. 123JUNK was born!
Since its inception, 123JUNK has grown quickly yet progressively, adding one or two vehicles per year to our fleet.
Today, you can’t miss the distinctive look of our shiny red trucks on the way to another haul.
You select the junk you want removed. We take it to one of many local donation partners. Your unused items make it to a good cause!
If it can’t be donated, we take care to ensure that as many items are recycled as possible. Our goal from the start: reduce landfill waste.
After items have been donated and recycled, the remaining items get hauled away as safely and carefully as possible. See what we take!
Someone will reach out within 24 hours. We'd love to hear from you!
