They were pleasant and it was great to get rid of things I couldn't remove myself.
In December 2015, a small town in Washington suffered from a rare Tornado, it had a path of damage two miles long. The tornado damaged many houses and yards. At 1-800-GOT-JUNK?, it is important to us to help our communities in any way we can. Therefore, the day after the Tornado, we donated two of our trucks and five of our team members to help aid in the cleanup effort.
Our teams are dedicated to being a part of our communities in the same way we are dedicated to decreasing our impact on the environment through donating and recycling.
Here are some photos of the aftermath. As you can see there are fallen branches throughout backyards, and fences were blown down. Our teams went door to door, asking those affected how we could help. Most of the houses needed wood removal.
Team members Nick and Quentin getting ready to load up piles of fallen branches and broken trees. We removed debris and wood from people’s homes. Giving them much needed access to vehicles, driveways and paths to enter their homes.

If you are looking to get rid of a large amount of junk, garbage, and debris in Vancouver or Clark County, Washington, you may be tempted to rent a dumpster to hold it all.
There are a lot of good reasons to rent a dumpster in Vancouver, WA and area – but here are a few things to consider before deciding if a dumpster rental is right for your needs.
Dumpsters need to be placed on flat, level surfaces. This could be a driveway or street. If you place your dumpster on the street, you will need to get a permit from the City of Vancouver, which costs about $25.
The cost of a 30 yard dumpster after the delivery fee, haul fee, and rental fee for 14 days is several hundred dollars, all before your junk or debris gets taken to the dump. Once taken to the dump, there will be an additional charge of about $100 per ton.
A dumpster usually holds between two and six tons of material, depending upon the types of items being removed.
When you hire 1-800-GOT-JUNK? You avoid all of the hassles and fees that come along with dumpster rentals.
