Hi, I'm Jay Montgomery and I am your local owner and operator of 1-800-GOT-JUNK? Denver. Staring my junk removal business in September 2003, I was the first 1-800-GOT-JUNK? franchise partner in Colorado. After starting my 1-800-GOT-JUNK? franchise, I became a member of the South Metro Chamber of Commerce and value the visibility and networking opportunities that the South Metro Chamber brings my business.
My 1-800-GOT-JUNK? franchise currently services about 60% of metropolitan Denver from Ft. Lupton in the north, to Castle Rock in the south, up to Conifer in the west and to most points on the east side of the metro area. We also cover downtown Denver and all cities east, south and south east of downtown Denver. I started with one 1-800-GOT-JUNK? truck and one employee and I now operate six junk trucks and have 15 employees on the team. We make it a priority to recycle and donate as much as we can on a regular basis.
I am proud to say we have recycled over 900,000 lbs of metal since our 1-800-GOT-JUNK? franchise opened and items such as cardboard and paper also get recycled. We have dropped off countless truckloads of furniture and other items to donate to local charities such as Savers, Goodwill, Salvation Army, and ARC. Our clients are happy that we do all the work and that their items will find a second life in some way shape or form.
We are a very visible company with trucks parked at various locations throughout our territory. Our 1-800-GOT-JUNK? trucks are centrally located for our truck teams as well as to help our clients see us to let them know we are there to help when they need us. People driving by Parker and Arapahoe, University and Dry Creek, Parker and Iliff, Smoky Hill and Buckley, Colorado and Alamada, and others will often see our trucks parked with our crew waving. The next time you see us out there with our blue wigs on and waving, please honk smile or wave - we love to try and make people happy!

Hello, I’m Lilly Wallace, Boulder resident and franchise owner of Boulder's 1-800-GOT-JUNK?. I opened my junk removal franchise in late 2005.

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 5 years, 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 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 and walking down the Pearl Street Mall and at the Farmer's Market waving to people spreading 1-800-GOT-JUNK? cheer in their blue wigs!

1-800-GOT-JUNK? employees do so much more than haul away junk; they provide valuable services such as sorting through the items removed and donating to charities and second hand stores like Ares Thrift, Savers, and Hospice Thrift.

Our team also takes all reusable building materials to the ReSource yards on Arapahoe in Boulder and on College Ave. in Fort Collins.
