Drew Boyles1-800-GOT-JUNK? Greater Los Angeles
I love this junk hauling company because we are carving out a niche many people don't even know exists. I was with Starbucks Coffee for six years during the earlier years and much of this company reminds me of that. More importantly, I love this 1-800-GOT-JUNK? brand because it has enabled me to build an incredibly talented and driven management team. One of my first Truck Team Members, Darren Tavitian, is now not only the General Manager for the Los Angeles Coast 1-800-GOT-JUNK? franchise but a business partner with the purchase of our 1-800-GOT-JUNK? franchise in San Diego. “Drew Boyles happened to be a very likable guy who practices what he preaches and would never have any of his employees do something he wouldn't do himself. A little after a year working for Drew and his 1-800-GOT-JUNK? franchise, I was sent to Vancouver for training and while up there drank the 1-800-GOT-JUNK? Kool-Aid. During this time period, Drew was expanding his business by acquiring new territories such as Orange County and put me at the helm of his flagship franchise, Los Angeles Coast. What a ride! I blindly started this career assuming it would be temporary and instead have worked my way up the ladder to General Manager of a Top 20 revenue performing franchise and franchise partner myself.”
We absolutely live and breathe by the play hard work hard mantra. One of my favorite experiences with 1-800-GOT-JUNK? was when we determined that a job that was initially estimated by the client as a 60 minute job actually turned into a 21 truckload job that had to be completed the same day! We rallied the troops mustering 7 trucks to get it done for the client.
Another reason I love this junk hauling business is because it enables us to help our local communities. Examples of us supporting organizations include: El Segundo Education Foundation, El Segundo School District, Manhattan Beach Education Foundation, Muscular Dystrophy Association, Relay for Life, Tree Musketeers, El Segundo Richmond Street Fair, El Segundo Co-Op Nursery School, El Segundo School District. Finally, I am proud of how we help the environment. We are a California State approved electronic waste (e-waste) collector and in 2006 and 2007, we recycled over 114,000 pounds of computers, TVs, monitors and other electronics though our Los Angeles office alone! We also recycle and donate metal, paper and cardboard, used appliances and furniture.
We are located in a small light industrial warehouse in the center of El Segundo, just behind the newly constructed Grand Plaza. We are at 231 Arena St in the corner warehouse space which is adjacent to the alley parallel with and behind Grand Ave. The El Segundo public skate park and Teen Center, as well as the El Segundo Boy Scout House are across Grand avenue from us.
Terry Miller1-800-GOT-JUNK? Corona
Hi, I'm Terry Miller and I own the local 1-800-GOT-JUNK? franchise in North East Orange County. I started serving North East Orange County on January 1, 2005. Since then, we have removed over 3,000 truckloads of junk. That's enough junk to fill Edison Field and the Honda Center! Up to 80% of the items we pick up are either donated or recycled. We have helped thousands of people remove their unwanted items including furniture, appliances, electronics, construction debris, and much more. I currently have a fleet of five 1-800-GOT-JUNK? trucks. Coming from a family of entrepreneurs, and after nine years in the automotive industry with Lexus, I decided to start my own business. 1-800-GOT-JUNK? was the perfect fit. It gives me the ability to help people and give back to the community. I look forward to removing your unwanted items and giving you back your space.
Our office is located in Anaheim close to the 91 and 57 freeways. We are right next to Camelot Golf Land.
Hi, we're Bill and Eileen Cox and we own the franchise of 1-800-GOT-JUNK? that offers professional junk removal service to the southern end of Orange County. What a great place to help keep clean and organized. We started junk hauling over six years ago with one truck and now have eight trucks removing rubbish daily. We service both residential and commercial clients so call us to book your junk removal today or book online for $10 off. Our middle son Tom helped us get the franchise started then went off to college for four years and is now back helping again until he finds his own passion. Eileen is a library assistant and her passion is books and helping people. What a great lady. I use to be a Senior Telecommunications Engineer and flew around the world to fix problems but now spend my days having fun with junk.

Junk Removal Waves Make It On KROQ and Star 98.7
As part of the 1-800-GOT-JUNK? culture, our enthusiastic junk removers do waves to advertise our junk removal services. Our waves have made the local popular radio station KROQ and Star 98.7. The DJs were down in Huntington Beach and one of them said, "Have you seen those 1-800-GOT-JUNK? guys?" The other DJs started yelling, "Yeah those junk removal guys are awesome, I was on Main St. in Huntington Beach and those guys made my day."
We were at the LA County Fair on Sept. 7th, 2007. We also came to the Great Women's Expo on Sept. 15-16.

Our 1-800-GOT-JUNK? team loves to let loose and have fun! Here in South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa after doing a crazy wave & caravan day.
Trash Removers Like to Have Fun
At the annual Christmas parade in El Segundo California, the 1-800-GOT-JUNK? trash removal crew show off their exciting culture. "Wearing the blue wigs is as much a part of 1-800-GOT-JUNK? as physically removing junk," operations manager Brent Jameson says. "It's a reminder not to take yourself so seriously. It keeps us grounded, and energized." Having a fun and exciting culture is a huge part of the success of 1-800-GOT-JUNK?. "Work hard, play hard. It's our mantra." As proof, here we are at it again with one of our crazy waves!
Helping Out The Needy
Helping out those in need is without a doubt the most rewarding part of owning a 1-800-GOT-JUNK? franchise. Franchise partner, Terry Miller, recently read about a single mother and her disabled daughter who lost everything in an apartment fire. They were able to get another apartment, but the extent of their possessions was limited to the clothes on their backs. Terry immediately contacted the mother, Dee, and told her that he would help. The next day, 1-800-GOT-JUNK? arrived with a truckload of furniture, clothes, dishes, and even a hospital bed for her disabled daughter. Their appreciation and the priceless smiles on their faces are what make giving back the most rewarding part of this business.
Cat Turns Up in Junk Search
A lady was moving from Long Beach to San Pedro. We removed a full truckload of junk with a couch, boxes, mattress and some other items on a Friday. After the pickup was done and we had left, the truck phone rang and it was the lady saying she could not find her cat Romeo. We looked though all the boxes of junk at the donation center and found no cat. On Monday, someone came and bought the couch from Goodwill and took it home. They felt a lump in the couch move. It was Romeo! We returned the cat to the customer who was extremely grateful.
