Hi, my name is John Nakama and I'm your local franchise owner and operator for 1-800-GOT-JUNK? Encino. I left a career in diamonds for a life in junk! I started my 1-800-GOT-JUNK? junk hauling business in 2005 and I have loved every minute of it. You can find our shiny 1-800-GOT-JUNK? junk hauling trucks roaming the streets of Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Encino, Sherman Oaks, Van Nuys, and Canago Park just to name a few!
We recycle as much as possible on a day-to-day basis. We are e-waste certified by the State of California, making sure that the e-waste we collect is properly recycled.
We also donate a considerable amount to charities such as Goodwill and Out of the Closet. We have donated our junk removal Encino services to local non-profits such as the Tarzana Community and Cultural Center, The Pacific Lodge Boys Home and Woodland Hills Elementary School. Almost all paper and metal goes directly to the recyclers, and we are always trying to find new ways to increase our recycling. I love that I can own and operate a business like 1-800-GOT-JUNK? where we are not just helping people de-clutter their lives, but we're helping the environment through the process!
What I love best about my 1-800-GOT-JUNK? franchise is that we help customers de-clutter their homes, hauling junk like mattresses, appliances (e.g. dishwashers, fridges) and electronics. We help out our environment in the process. It's also highly rewarding to have employees who work as hard as my junk removers do for the company and our customers. I grew up in the Valley and have always been surrounded by good people, but having a junk hauling service gives us the opportunity to meet lots of new people every day. It never ceases to amaze me how kind people are and how much they love our junk removal Encinco service.

We have been part of the community in Hollywood since 1984 when we opened and grew one of LA's biggest photo labs, IMAGEXPERTS Photo and Digital. We learned about 1-800-GOT-JUNK? after we had seen a junk truck in the San Fernando Valley and we called to have an obsolete photo machine picked up. When the call center agent informed us that our area was not serviced, a light bulb lit up! It was a great opportunity to do something new, fun, dynamic and out of the box. We teamed up with our nephews, Salomon and Zeev Belilty, and their best friend, Andrew Capuana, and three months later we opened our junk removal operation in February of 2006.
Since our early days we have grown from a fleet of four 1-800-GOT-JUNK? trucks to a fleet of 10 1-800-GOT-JUNK? trucks thanks to a great business model, a lot of hard work and our fun, chipper, high energy blue wig wearing culture. Our team can often be seen around town on many major intersections like Highland and Franklin or LaBrea and Santa Monica, which are our favorites! Our clean and shiny trucks can be seen cruising around town or sleeping at their homes on Venice and LaBrea, Griffith Park and Hyperion, Sunset and Fountain, Highland and Melrose, Fairfax and Beverly or LaCienega and Wilshire, just to name a few.

Hi, I’m Drew Boyles, owner of 1-800-GOT-JUNK? Greater Los Angeles. In 2004, after recovering from a start-up, I stumbled on a Fortune Magazine article about 1-800-GOT-JUNK? Anxious to get back into another entrepreneurial endeavor, I jumped at the opportunity to buy the Los Angeles territory along the coast.
As a 20 year resident of El Segundo and avid surfer, the coast is home to me. Since 2004, I have acquired 22 other franchise locations and operate across Southern California, Chicagoland, Greater Sacramento, Greater Santa Cruz and Monterey areas.
I have been in everything from aerospace in the military, the bowling alley business, the coffee business, dry cleaning, management consulting and now junk! Without a doubt, I am having the most fun of my career in the junk business.

Check out your new favorite local movers in Orange County and give us a call so we can move you (after we've removed all of your junk, of course).
When I am not working on a new project, I surf, ski and snowboard as much as possible, in between coaching my two little kids’ AYSO Region 92 soccer teams.
I am a member of the El Segundo Economic Development Advisory Committee and a Community Board Member of ESMoA, the El Segundo Museum of Art. I have served as Co-Chairperson of the Santa Monica / Malibu Surfrider Foundation. I have also served in various volunteer leadership capacities with Entrepreneurs' Organization, including two terms as President of the Los Angeles Chapter, two terms as a US West Area Director and as the US West Membership Director.
We pride ourselves in giving back to the community. Last year, we sponsored an e-waste event to raise money for a new playground at Golden Springs Elementary School in Diamond Bar. We collected two truckloads of e-waste material and scrap metal. Overall, we helped raise over $2,000 with the event. Says the school website, "Our partners at 1-800-GOT-JUNK?, Kimberly and Brian Guidizi, were instrumental ... Please reach out to Kimberly and Brian Guidizi for all of your waste removal needs."
Drew Boyles helped Brian Scudamore realize his "Can You Imagine" goal of getting 1-800-GOT-JUNK? on the Starbucks Coffee cup with Starbucks' "The Way I See It" program. At first, Scudamore questioned if they'd want to quote the CEO of a junk removal company. Thanks to the faith and commitment of a marketing manager, we made it happen!
Los Angeles Coast's 1-800-GOT-JUNK? franchise partnered with the City of El Segundo to help citizens recycle their electronic waste products responsibly.
