Hello, I’m Lilly Sorensen, Boulder resident and franchise owner of 1-800-GOT-JUNK? Boulder. I opened my junk removal franchise in late 2005. While my office is located in Boulder County, my blue shiny trucks are moving offices all along the Front Range including Superior, Louisville, Lafayette, Longmont, Loveland, Berthoud, Windsor, Fort Collins and Greeley.
Coming from a family of hard working entrepreneurs from the mid-west, I ran with my dream of being self-employed while also providing solid, respectful, satisfying jobs for people in my community. I started working for 1-800-GOT-JUNK? in Michigan as a truck team member. In 2004 I moved to Colorado to attend Naropa University and the following year, when the opportunity to purchase a 1-800-GOT-JUNK? franchise in Boulder arose, I jumped on it.
Over the past decade, my Boulder franchise has employed dozens of students from several universities on the Front Range including Naropa University, University of Colorado, Colorado State University, Front Range Community College and University of Northern Colorado as well as family men, artists and outdoor sports fanatics!
While the truck teams specialize in full service junk hauling they can also be found waving to cars on busy intersections with Horsetooth Mountain or the Flatirons in the background spreading 1-800-GOT-JUNK? cheer in their blue wigs!
1-800-GOT-JUNK? employees do so much more than haul away junk, when they leave your home or office their job is only half-way done. They bring the truck to our warehouses and off load the reuseables, recycleables, and re-purposeables with our diversion managers. For 1-800-GOT-JUNK? clients the situation is a win-win; they not only get their space back but they can also know that nothing is going to the landfill that can be reused! People living in Colorado on the Front Range want to keep their environment beautiful and all of the people employed at the Boulder franchise care about their environment.
The Boulder franchise is active in the community and proud members of the Colorado Association for Recycling, the Boulder Area Chamber of Commerce, Lafayette Chamber of Commerce, Louisville Chamber of Commerce, Fort Collins Chamber of Commerce, and the National Association of Property Managers.
Our Local Commercial Sales person has been volunteering at the I Have a Dream Foundation making recycled "junk" art with the kids. She's also done several "junk" art programs with Longmont schools in addition to sponsoring e-waste recycling events for the families of the students! For several years our 1-800-GOT-JUNK? team has volunteered at the Bolder Boulder 10k Road Race and helped clean-up after the famous event. One of our 1-800-GOT-JUNK? trucks was recently spotted wearing a matching leprechaun’s hat with truck team members at the annual Fort Collins St. Patrick's Day parade. Our team really loves being a part of the community!
