The story of 1-800-GOT-JUNK goes back to 1989 when Brian Scudamore was still a college student and looking for a summer job in his hometown of Vancouver, Canada. However, the jobs were hard to find, and seeing an old junk truck, he was inspired to start his own business.
Initially, the company was called ”The Rubbish Boys”. Soon his idea developed into a franchise of professional junk removal and Brian changed the name of the company to 1-800-GOT-JUNK. Today, 1-800-GOT-JUNK operates in about 200 locations in three countries.
You can book 1-800-GOT-JUNK to remove your unwanted items through a local franchise. Whenever possible, 1-800-GOT-JUNK will keep the items from the landfill by donating or recycling them.
