Hello I’m Dave Harrop, your local franchise partner of 1-800-GOT-JUNK? Oahu here in Hawaii. I have been involved with this great junk removal brand for years throughout North America. I got my start with 1-800-GOT-JUNK? in 2003 when I bought my first junk hauling franchise in Calgary, Alberta. Previously, I owned and operated a highly successful Certa Pro Painters franchise for five years and was looking for a fun, young business culture to get involved with where I could work and play hard. In 2007, I decided to take my passion for 1-800-GOT-JUNK? to Oahu and open my second 1-800-GOT-JUNK? franchise. I wanted to provide the people of Hawaii the opportunity to do business with a company that is committed to recycling and the environment.
Owning 1-800-GOT-JUNK? Oahu has given me the opportunity to become active with many professional organizations throughout Honolulu County and Hawaii. We are members of the Hawaii Chamber of Commerce, Entrepreneurs Organization, Hawaii Association of Professional Organizers (HAPO) and the Better Business Bureau.
We have become productive corporate citizens in our community through our aggressive recycling efforts, which keep 60% of the waste we haul out of local landfills. Our efforts have diverted thousands of tons of metal, paper, plastic, e-waste and other reusable materials from polluting our delicate Island environment. We have also been active in developing relationships with church groups and other charitable organizations which find second homes for some of the gently-used items we remove from homes and offices throughout Oahu.
We thank the over 2,000 customers in Oahu that have hired us to remove junk from their homes and businesses. We look forward to helping you get rid of your junk in an environmentally friendly way!
