Hi, I’m Alan Klug and I was the first franchise partner to open the Baltimore market in April of 2003. I was the fourth 1-800-GOT-JUNK? franchise to open on the East Coast. I’ve personally been to hundreds of junk removal jobs from Towson to Federal Hill, Gibson Island to Woodstock in Howard County and of course Baltimore City, Columbia, Ellicott City and everywhere in between.
Prior to opening the 1-800-GOT-JUNK? Baltimore franchise. I was a management consultant for KPMG and BearingPoint. Opening my junk removal business was a means to stay local in my beloved hometown of Baltimore and get involved with the local business community. I wanted a business where I could really solve a problem for our customers and provide outstanding service in a unique industry – I can safely say I found what I was looking for!
You’ve probably seen our junk removal trucks parked all over York Road. We like to keep that extra truck up there to serve the I-83 corridor better. Just as we also like to keep one out in Howard County, usually at Long Gate Shopping Center, to better serve our HoCo customers!
We also love to recycle – we have recycled hundreds of tons of metal, paper and electronics this year. We recently started collecting used and damaged clothing for recycling too. We are always looking for new places to recycle or donate things. The Loading Dock in East Baltimore is one of our favorites due to the fact that we get lots of building scrap.
When I’m not working with my junk team or playing with my three sons I can usually be found running around the streets of Baltimore from Loch Raven Reservoir to the NCR trail or the Stony Run Trail to name some of my favorites. I’ve participated in multiple Baltimore Running Festivals as well as the Survivor Harbor 7 that our local office participated in as a team!
