1-800-GOT-JUNK? works with recyclers in Detroit to keep items out of the landfill
At 1-800-GOT-JUNK?, we know we need help to keep everything out of the landfill, so we’ve partnered with recyclers around Metro Detroit to achieve our goal.
NPR Recycling, located in Romulus, has given us the ability to recycle paper, plastics, cardboard, books, and metals. When you see our team leave your appointment, they’re off to sort through your items to make sure they go to the proper location.
Mid Michigan Wood Recycling, located in Livonia, gives our franchise the ability to recycle any non-treated wood. With their help, in 2014 we recycled 67.12 tons (134,400 lbs) of wood. When we convert tons to watts, we produced 44.74 mega watts. That’s enough to provide 64 homes with 1 month of electricity.
Vintage Tech Recyclers, located in Canton, is another recycler we are proud to work with. They recycle all electronics, TVs, printers, speakers, wires, monitors, towers, record players, and everything in between.
St Vincent de Paul Society, located in Detroit, travels to both of our office locations in Troy and Farmington Hills each week. They take furniture, clothes, electronics, art, and any household items. We are happy to repurpose the items we receive from your homes and offices by donating them to people who need them. We also work with other charitable organizations, like the Salvation Army, Goodwill, and Habitat for Humanity.
Junk Removal Comes to Detroit
Read about how 1-800-GOT-JUNK? became one of the fastest-growing franchises in America, by hauling garbage that others won't. Jeff Lazar, who launched a junk removal franchise in Detroit, says, "I'm pretty geeked out about it." We specialize in hauling junk like old clothing, furniture, and even appliance pickups like dishwashers and exercise equipment.

Junk Removers Support March Of Dimes
Last April we donated to the March of Dimes (Michigan Chapter) and participated in the walk at Metro Beach. You couldn't miss all 15 of us in our bright blue 1-800-GOT-JUNK? shirts and blue wigs!
Junk Hauling For Detroit Families
The communities we serve, like Farmington Hills, Grosse Pointe, and Macomb Township, are full of families that like to spend quality time together at events like The Farmington Area Founders Festival and the world famous Plymouth Ice Festival. Our junk removers participate by helping with garbage removal after these types of events to make it easier for communities to continue to provide for their residents. Community involvement and recycling are just some of the ways that Detroit's 1-800-GOT-JUNK? junk removal services can help to improve the communities in which we work and live.
Featured On AM 1270 WXYT
1-800-GOT-JUNK? loves to help people and businesses solve their junk removal and recycling problems. Our biggest challenge is to get the word out about our junk hauling services. It was a great pleasure for our junk disposal services to be featured on Adam Helfman's Hire It Done program on AM 1270 WXYT in Detroit. Adam specializes in guiding people to the home improvement solution that is right for them. Not only was it a great opportunity to let people know about our junk hauling service, but it was a chance to help people find solutions to things like prepping their homes for sale or their remodeling efforts. We can help you with your garage cleanouts and remove clutter from your home!

Find Us Next To Henriksen's Golf Range!
Our Macomb County franchise office is located at a driving range, Suites on the Green is the name outside of the building.
