1-800-GOT-JUNK? has been helping people remove their junk from Des Moines, Cedar Rapids, Davenport, Moline, Rock Island, Bettendorf, and more for years! We’ve seen and removed all kinds of residential and commercial rubbish, including old appliances, furniture, yard waste, office equipment, and construction and renovation debris. If you don’t want it, we can take it!
We are a full-service junk removal company, just point to what you want removed and our TOMs will do the rest. We offer same-day service, free estimates and our pricing includes everything: the sorting, lifting, loading, recycling, salvaging, donating, and disposal. We pride ourselves in giving back to our local community and taking care of the environment. That’s why we recycle and donate as much as possible. We look forward to seeing you soon! Watch what we do.
My name is Tyler Staszak and I’m the owner of the 1-800-GOT-JUNK? Des Moines franchise. I've been with 1-800-GOT-JUNK since 2007 in Kansas City. In 2015 we bought out the Omaha, NE franchise. Now in 2016 we're in Des Moines, IA. I was born in Green Bay, WI and moved to Joplin, MO. After graduating High School in Joplin, I took the opportunity to go to school and work at a software company in San Francisco called Volterra.
I had always wanted to own my own business, and in 2007 I left a successful career in the tech industry to start a business in Kansas City as a Franchise Partner at 1-800-GOT-JUNK?. I am thrilled to have expanded the operation to include Des Moines.
My franchise and I are actively involved in the local community and support many different non-profit organizations including the Patriots Run and Parktoberfest. We pride ourselves on our commitment to customer service and recycling efforts. Every year we recycle and donate thousands of tons of metal, e-waste, furniture and household goods.
Hi, I’m Trent Lorfeld. My wife Susan and I started our 1-800-GOT-JUNK? Quad Cities franchise in July of 2000 making us one of the first 1-800-GOT-JUNK? franchises in the United States. We currently operate six service routes which spread across much of the state of Iowa from Des Moines to western Illinois. Since we started our junk removal business in Iowa we have helped close to 12,000 commercial and residential customers dispose of their unwanted items.
We are currently involved with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources and SWAP (Solid Waste Alternative Program), diverting as much as 3,000 tons of debris annually from area landfills. Our junk Truck Teams realize the importance of donating items to philanthropic organizations. The impact of donating is two-fold: we not only divert trash from the already over taxed waste stream, but by donating working toys, used clothing and other household items, we are fueling resale outlets established to help and provide jobs to the less fortunate. We are a sponsor of the Project Aware River Action clean-ups held throughout the state of Iowa.
Our junk hauling franchise supports realtors, banks, property managemers and REO service companies by providing initial services and cleaning out of foreclosure properties. Upon request we provide free estimates, before and after photos of the job site, evictions and many other initial services.
This weekend we will be helping with an event in Des Moines called “River Run Garbage Grab” or “R2G2” for short. The event is a cleanup on the Des Moines River, Raccoon River and Walnut Creek. We will be picking up & recycling the loads from 9 sites around Des Moines. The website for the event is http://riverstewards.org
For the past two years our junk removal franchise has been a proud sponsor of Project AWARE (A Watershed Awareness River Expedition) which is an initiative of the Department of Natural Resources' IOWATER, Water Trails and Keepers of the Land program. Volunteers participate by floating down the scenic rivers of Iowa in canoes and kayaks, cleaning up river trash along the way. The expeditions last an entire week. Our 1-800-GOT-JUNK? teams dispose of the river debris by going to various parks along the route and transporting it to the landfill where it is sorted into different recycling piles and recycled. In the five year history of Project AWARE, the participants have cleaned up more than 400 river miles and four different lakes, and removed 1,000 cubic yards of trash, of which 85% was recycled.
