Our trucks and professional drivers specialize ONLY in Junk Removal. Our dedication to customer service is second to none. Also for your peace of mind we are safe, insured and deliver 'WOW' service to dozens of customers every day. Estimates are ALWAYS FREE!
We are locally owned with the support structure of the national leader in junk removal behind us and pride ourselves in being the best junk removal service in Milwaukee.
Servicing residential and commercial clients with junk removal needs, we've seen all kinds of junk, from appliances, furniture, yard waste, construction debris, old office furniture -- you name it we've probably taken it! We have met the junk removal needs of Harley Davidson, Milwaukee Brewers, and the Milwaukee Bucks to name a few.

No matter what junk removal you need, we are the right junk hauler for the job. Also, we make every effort to recycle or donate the items we take away; in fact we are successful in recycling greater than 60% of the rubbish in Milwaukee that we haul away, and we donate items that “still have life left” in them to Salvation Army, Goodwill, and Blessed Again.
Don’t waste your weekend or damage your driveway by having a dumpster dropped off. Let our team of junk removal experts make your project of debris removal, effortless and painless.

Todd Yergens1-800-GOT-JUNK? Wisconsin
Todd Yergens, life-long southeastern Wisconsin native, has been growing and expanding, the 1-800-GOT-JUNK? service in the Wisconsin market since 2004. In the spring of that year, he read an article about an expanding organization of professional junk disposal specialists called 1-800-GOT-JUNK?. Todd knew they had the right combination of skills, experience, and dedication to re-invent the way people in the Milwaukee area disposed of their unwanted junk. He put together a team of organized, well-trained, courteous and professional waste removal specialists and set out to deliver the best service in the business.
Based on his success in helping over 10’s of thousands local customers rid themselves of unwanted junk, Todd expanded from the Northwest Milwaukee market to service 10 county areas, including Milwaukee, Waukesha, Walworth, Washington, Ozaukee, Fond Du Lac, Sheboygan, Manitowoc, Racine, and Kenosha counties.

Bed Bugs are in Milwaukee
We have seen a large increase in the amount of junk removal jobs that we have done recently in Milwaukee and Waukesha that have been because of a bedbug infestation. Bedbugs are a bloodsucking insect that can go without eating for up to 12 months and can spread throughout a house or an apartment complex very quickly!
The team here at 1-800-GOT-JUNK? is highly trained and has all the proper equipment to remove and haul away all items that have been effected by bedbugs. It’s not only important to have the proper equipment to haul away the items but to also insure that when you are removing the infested items that you don’t spread the bedbugs to other tenants or parts of the house. Equally important while removing and hauling away the items is using discretion while doing the job. The last thing you need while dealing with a bedbug infestation is for other tenants or neighbors to become aware of the situation.
Junkman hits the big time.If you saw the crew from Butler's 1-800-GOT-JUNK? on the cable TV show "Hoarders," then you saw only a small part of what the franchise does. Todd Yergens' company has appeared twice on the A&E show - last April and just this February. The more recent appearance showed the company taking more than six dump truck loads (10-12 tons) of clothes, toys, furniture and bedding, out of a Milwaukee house.
The 38-year-old single father whose home they cleared out is not a typical customer, Yergens explained during a ride-along interview last week: http://www.livinglakecountry.com/sussexsun/news/89519017.html.
FOX 6's Gus Gnorski came to watch us do a 40 truck
1-800-GOT-JUNK? was recently called out to the old White Eagle Hotel to clear out several years’ worth of neglected items. The hotel became a rooming house toward the end of its life, but that was ten years ago! With no power in the building and so much debris to haul out, this was a difficult job. We brought in generators and lights and completed the job safely in three days. The best news? We were able to recycle 70% of what we hauled out. FOX 6’s Gus Gnorski joined us and reported on the 40 truckload job. Click here to see the Fox report.

1-800-GOT-JUNK? Helps Hurricane Katrina Victims
In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, we worked with local churches to find ways to help victims cope with the devastation caused by the storm. We decided to make the long trip to Louisiana to take supplies, assist in the clean up, and help provide displaced residents the opportunity to relocate. With the support of family, friends and the community, we received twelve tons of supplies within forty-eight hours, which we then loaded up before hitting the road.
After determining where help was needed most, we found a distribution center being run in conjunction with the National Guard. We dropped off the twelve tons of supplies and helped the National Guard transport one hundred pallets of supplies to the distribution center. In the following days, we helped families whose homes needed to be gutted because they had been under six feet of water.
Junk Trucks on Parade
We enjoy being part of the Milwaukee community. Whenever possible we take part in parades, festivals or community cleanups. The whole junk pickup crew looks forward to decorating the junk trucks and getting into costume. Here we are at the Waukesha County Fair.
