The NYC Department of Sanitation offers garbage/trash pick-up service only 2 or 3 times per week (depending on location). They WILL NOT donate or redistribute quality furniture or other reusable items that are placed curbside. Furthermore, “bulk item collection” is limited to 6 items, and if the city’s garbage haulers determine an item to be too big or too heavy they are empowered to excuse it from pickup. The home or business owner must bring the items to the curb and they may not extend in front of another property or impede pedestrians’ traffic. The City will only take construction debris associated with “small do it yourself projects”.

We never leave an item at your place because it’s too big. Our friendly team can take any item you have that’s non-toxic that two people can lift.
We will get your items from wherever they are – no need to move them to the curb, or collect it all in one place. That’s what we’re for! We do all of that work for you. (We even sweep up the area where your garbage / trash was to give you your space back in better condition than when we arrived).

Dumpsters are a high labor/high maintenance substitute for 1-800-GOT-JUNK?’s junk removal service. First and foremost you must fill the dumpster yourself. When you call 1-800-GOT-JUNK? we do all the heavy lifting and loading. You don’t lift a finger!
While dumpster rentals in New York may save some money on paper, there is a physical cost to doing the labor, as well as possible time off from work to load it. Unexpected costs can result from selecting the wrong sized dumpster, filling it with refuse that is either restricted or surcharged, or you’re required to exceed the initial term of the rental. When you call us, you don’t need to worry about any of these issues.
Additionally, the dumpster itself will rest on the property for the entire term of the rental and could potentially damage the underlying asphalt or concrete beneath the dumpster if not property placed.
1-800-GOT-JUNK? offers the same service with no hassle. We can pick up the items you want gone – including construction debris – at any time. You don’t have to lift it, or load it. We often help with dumpster overflow too (if your dumpster is overflowing, we can take away the excess trash, junk or debris).
Don’t waste time and energy on renting a dumpster in NYC when you can call 1-800-GOT-JUNK?
1-800-GOT-JUNK? Brooklyn/Queens recently participated in a local Toy Drive for Second Chance Toys – a non-profit organization dedicated to keeping used toys out of landfills, refurbishing them, and distributing them to children in need. Our franchise handled the logistics of picking up toys from local donation centers and bringing them to Viacom (the media giant) so that volunteers at their NYC headquarters could clean and treat the toys for re-use. We then delivered the refurbished toys directly to several children’s hospitals and centers for underprivileged children in our area. This was the third year in a row that our franchise donated our services.
Here’s a picture from the event (from left to right - Manhattan TTM Joe Mcleod, Manhattan GM Michael Cambrieri, NY Giant Super Bowl winning Punter Steve Weatherford, and BQ GM Evan Cohen)
1-800-GOT-JUNK? Brooklyn/Queens was a “Major Sponsor” of the 29th annual AIDS WALK in NYC’s Central Park. This was the 6th consecutive year that franchises from NYC and Long Island donated their time and resources to help clean up the park after more than 30,000 participants completed the course. The event raised more than $3 million dollars to be shared by more than 40 organizations that offer housing, medication, and clothes to people living with AIDS and HIV. The Brooklyn-Queens franchise volunteered eight trucks and eight Truck Team Members to be on-site from pre-event prep at 7pm on Saturday thru 7pm on Sunday.
The New York Times ran an article on how 1-800-GOT-JUNK? evolved into an international success story in the world of junk removal.
Brian Scudamore recounts the humble beginnings of 1-800-GOT-JUNK?'s junk removal services. He began removing junk as a part-time gig to fund his college education. The company started off as a one-man-will-haul-junk operation. Slowly, Scudamore increased the size of his junk removal crew, expanded his trash hauling fleet, and even brought the service over to nearby Victoria. Today, he is the CEO of an international junk removal corporation that is hauling trash across three different countries.
