More Details

Hi, we are Tim and Deb Jones and we opened our 1-800-GOT-JUNK? junk removal service in Macomb County and the Grosse Pointe communities in September 2006. After successful careers in the advertising agency business, we wanted to start an entrepreneurial venture. When 1-800-GOT-JUNK? was profiled in the New York Times Small Business section in May 2006 we were intrigued. We researched 1-800-GOT-JUNK? and the more we learned about the company, culture and business model, we knew we found the right business. You may have seen our 1-800-GOT-JUNK? trucks parked in Sterling Heights at Henriksen Golf Range on Van Dyke (also our office location) or at the BP Station on Vernier Road and I-94. We make frequent appearances, waving and wearing our blue wigs, along Hall Road in Sterling Heights, Shelby and Utica. If you live in any of the Grosse Pointe communities, you'll see our ads on grocery carts at Kroger stores. Those of you frequenting the new MJR Cinemas at Partridge Creek will be able to view our in-theater ad on the big screen! The best part of junk hauling is donating all the usable items we pick up. All donations are either new or gently-used items. We take clothing and toys to the Salvation Army, and home and office furniture, appliances, kitchen wares, light fixtures and rugs to Habitat for Humanity. We also donate all the old cell phones we pick up, then they're refurbished and used by local women's shelters. We are proud of our affiliation with COTS (Coalition on Temporary Shelter) in Detroit. Our 1-800-GOT-JUNK? franchise is donating the trucks and time necessary to pickup all donations for the COTS Clean Sweep.

Recycling is a priority for our franchise. Old appliances, electrical cords, motors, metal, paper, books, cardboard and batteries are recycled ( The donating and recycling we do is very important. It's a tremendous opportunity for others to benefit from having these items available to them.

Our office is located on Van Dyke Avenue half a mile south of Hall Road at Henriksen's Golf Range.

Junk Removal, Oakland County
More Details

Hi, my name is Bill Schaugg, and along with my partner, we recently purchased the Oakland County 1-800-GOT-JUNK? franchise. We help residential and commercial clients get rid of their junk in Troy, Birmingham, Bloomfield Hills, Franklin, Beverly Hills, and Rochester, among others.

What interested us the most about this junk hauling company is their commitment to people. Owning a 1-800-GOT-JUNK? franchise is serious business and it has enabled us to have a positive impact on our local Oakland County communities. Not only do we help residential and commercial customers by removing their unwanted junk and giving them their space back, but we are able to donate to local charities such as the Salvation Army. We also recycle paper, plastic, metal, and take e-waste to facilities that safely dispose of it. Most importantly, on a daily basis we are reducing the amount of junk that goes into the landfills.

I have recently joined the Birmingham chapter of LBN (Local Business Network), and the Birmingham/Bloomfield Chamber of Commerce, and have met numerous small business owners who are valuable partners and support.

Our Oakland County rubbish removal franchise loves to get involved in community activities such as Earth Day, and our trucks are visible in some of the festivals and parades that occur during the year, such as the ‘Renaissance Festival’ in Holly during August/September, the ‘Arts, Beats, and Eats Festival’ in Pontiac over the Labor Day weekend, and the ‘Rochester Christmas Parade.’

Oakland County Franchise Recycles and Donates

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.
