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.
