Hi, my name is Judy Briggs, and I own the Boston West and Worcester franchises of 1-800-GOT-JUNK?. Being a consumer and homeowner, I understood the difficulties in getting rid of large bulky items and I realized just how amazing the opportunity to own a 1-800-GOT-JUNK? franchise was going to be. I started my Worcester junk removal franchise in July of 2003 and loved the business so much I decided to expand by purchasing my second 1-800-GOT-JUNK? franchise, Boston West, which opened in March of 2006. I presently have two 1-800-GOT-JUNK? offices conveniently located within the heart of my territories. One office is located in Framingham right on route 135 on the Ashland/Framingham line and our newest office is on the Shrewsbury/Worcester line on route 9.
Now with two junk hauling franchises, eight 1-800-GOT-JUNK? trucks and 22 junk removal experts, we service communities such as Auburn, Winchendon, Worcester, Lancaster, Sterling, Leominster, Fitchburg, Gardner, Boylston, Marlborough, Westborough, Southborough, Northborough, Ashland, Hopkinton, Natick, Framingham, Dover, Westwood, Norwood, Needham, Dedham, Wellesley, Wayland, Weston, Sudbury, Milton, West Roxbury, Hyde Park, Dorchester, and Newton.
Prior to joining the 1-800-GOT-JUNK? team I worked in the healthcare field for over 20 years, working for two of the major insurance carriers in the area. Although corporate America was exciting, it’s not as exciting as the day-to-day operations of 1-800-GOT-JUNK?. Where else could you go to work wearing a blue wig and be recognized as the ‘junk lady’? This has become a term of endearment over the years since traditionally the waste industry is a male dominated industry.
Over the last few years we have been fortunate to partner with a certified recycling facility that recycles up to 90% of the items we remove from our customer’s homes and businesses. In addition to our recycling efforts, we are very proud to work with such charities as Cradles to Crayons, Planet Aid, and the Salvation Army to provide donations of clothing, toys, books, and furniture. Other charities that we are proud to be actively involved with are: The Michael Carter Lisnow Respite Center, United Way, Genesis Fund, Babies Breathe, RRUFF (Rescued Rottweilers United with Family and Friends), Worcester County Food Pantry, and Boxes For The Troops.
In addition to great charities, I’m also affiliated with such groups as Community Associations Institute (CAI), Business Networking International (BNI), New England Women Business Owners, the Chamber of Commerce in both Worcester and Framingham, Senior Services Network, Builders Association of Central Massachusetts, Massrecycle and Entrepreneurs Organization (EO)– Boston. In the last year I have joined the Board of Directors for both Massrecycle and Entrepreneurs Organization.

Everyday is an adventure with 1-800-GOT-JUNK? Read about how trash removal keeps one Boston family busy.
Just before Earth Day on April 22, two organizations are joining forces to do their part to help our environment, combining resources and expertise for a different kind of community awareness event. During the month of April, 1-800-GOT-JUNK? will host toy drives for Second Chance Toys at ten locations throughout the mid-Atlantic region, opening their doors to the community to collect and then deliver toys for children in need.
The 1-800-GOT-JUNK? Toy Drive, called GOT TOYS?, will serve the dual purpose of keeping gently-used plastic toys from the landfill and helping local underprivileged children. International junk hauling service 1-800-GOT-JUNK? is well-known for its mission to recycle and divert as much of the waste it collects as possible (more than 60% of each truckload is kept out of the landfill). While giving a second life to gently used plastic toys is exactly what Second Chance Toys is all about. It is the perfect partnership.
Boston West's 1-800-GOT-JUNK? franchise went out to support Marathon Monday. You may have seen our 1-800-GOT-JUNK? truck on the marathon route (mile 6) where over 25,000 runners passed us. One runner who has used our services and is a motivational speaker just had to have his picture taken with our 1-800-GOT-JUNK? truck. Judy the franchise partner was about 3 miles behind him running.
We attend a great community event called Touch a Truck. This event is hosted by Cummings Park and hosts dozens of trucks from local businesses and government agencies, like Middlesex County Sheriff’s Mobile Command Center and Woburn Fire Department fire trucks. Every truck is on display and open to the public. This is a super opportunity for everyone in the community to see and touch our 1-800-GOT-JUNK? trucks that service the community on a daily basis. It is a huge hit with adults and children alike and a great opportunity for 1-800-GOT-JUNK? to meet and talk to people of all ages.
