Hi, I’m David Pennebaker, owner and operator of 1-800-GOT-JUNK? Asheville. Back in 1999 as a general contractor, one of the largest problems I faced was cost effective disposal of construction debris. Small jobs didn’t justify the cost of a dumpster, and on city jobs I couldn’t place a dumpster. When I used dumpsters they would get filled up by neighbors, and after I would have to restore landscaping or deal with upset owners because the driveway got scratched or dented when the dumpster was dropped. Plus, my carpenters' time was better used doing things other than cleaning up. In 2001 I saw a 1-800-GOT-JUNK? truck and decided to call and see what they were all about. The experience was awesome. They showed up on time, quoted the job upfront, loaded all of the debris from the building (it wasn’t piled up neatly for them), then swept up my site and hauled everything away. It was so easy and cost effective relative to my other options that I used 1-800-GOT-JUNK? on most jobs from there on and to clean out my own house prior to moving to the Carolina’s. Something I didn’t know back in 2001 was just how committed 1-800-GOT-JUNK? is to responsible waste removal. Watching the company over several years I saw them transitioning from a company that provides junk removal and outstanding customer service to a company committed to recycling. Now system-wide we recycle up to 60% of the materials we collect. I was so impressed with 1-800-GOT-JUNK?, the service it provides, and their commitment to the environment that I bought the rights to Western North Carolina and the Upstate region of South Carolina. Since we opened 1--800-GOT-JUNK? of the Carolina’s in 2008, we have sought out ways to continue the commitment to the environment and ways to give back to the communities we service locally. Look around and you’ll see us at recycling facilities off-loading cardboard, Habitat for Humanity and Goodwill donating reusable goods, Biltmore Iron recycling metal, or working with volunteers from Asheville GreenWorks or Quality Forward picking up trash along roads and out of the rivers, or at Charlotte Street Computer ‘s e-waste facility E-cycleme off-loading e-waste. We are also committed to customer service. You can expect a call 15-30 minutes before your scheduled appointment and we arrive inside our scheduled window. Our crews are friendly and uniformed and our trucks are shiny and clean. You get a price up front and we clean up before we leave. We believe in commitment - commitment to the environment, commitment to the community we service, commitment to our employees, and above all commitment to serving you. Let us know if you see us living up to our commitments, or if you notice that we don't. Send us an email.
