Hi, my name is Laurie Anthony Baggio and I, along with my wife Chantel and three kids, Caius, Ava, and Marcus, own 1-800-GOT-JUNK?'s junk hauling operation in Portland. We have been in business for five years. Our franchise serves all of Washington County, most of Clackamas County and about half of Multnomah County. We initially launched in Tigard, then moved to Sylvan Heights for a couple of years until we settled here on SW Barbur Blvd.
Since starting our junk removal company in 2003 we have helped over 10,000 customers remove their junk and rubbish and get their space back. We are confident that our business will continue to grow as people find out that there is a good alternative to renting a drop box or borrowing a truck and doing the work themselves. We think the best thing about this business is the reaction of customers at the end of each junk removal. They are generally surprised at how easy and fast the whole process is. They like knowing that not everything is going to the landfill. We'll recycle as much as we can, or if the junk is still usable, there's a good chance we'll donate it to charity. Having a nice clean space, whether it’s a garage, basement or extra bedroom, is the best part. There are many times that the customers are relieved because the clean up is something that they had put off for months.
I have been a part of 1-800-GOT-JUNK? since 2001, originally working as the VP, Franchise Development, and later, Strategy, for the company. While watching many 1-800-GOT-JUNK? franchise owners become successful, I decided to acquire Portland in June of 2003. My first general manager, Tom Maryschak, who lived in Beaverton, ended up joining the corporate office and now owns his own 1-800-GOT-JUNK? franchise. Today, Mark Papenfuhs is the general manager for 1-800-GOT-JUNK? Portland. "Getting into the junk hauling business was never really part of my plan, but the more I found out about it, the better I liked it. I took over running the Portland franchise in October of 2005. Since then, we have more than doubled the revenue from our junk removals. We have added three more 1-800-GOT-JUNK? junk hauling trucks and are now up to seven."
Our office is located at 9442 SW Barbur Blvd., Portland 97219. That's just a few miles southwest of downtown Portland and just outside of Tigard near the Metro Transit Center. Barbur Blvd. is also known as Hwy 99 West.

My name is Ben Hoskins and I'm the Franchise Partner for the Portland North 1-800-GOT-JUNK? franchise. We serve North and North East Portland, much of South East Portland, Gresham, Troutdale and all of Clark County Washington, including Vancouver, Camas, Washougal and Battle Ground.
I originally started a 1-800-GOT-JUNK? franchise in San Diego, but when my wife and I moved to Vancouver, WA in 2006 I was able to purchase an existing franchise that served Vancouver as well as North and East Portland and Gresham. Now we have an office in the Lincoln section of Vancouver, as well as on Broadway in Portland's Hollywood district. You may also see our trucks parked in Vancouver in Salmon Creek, Fishers Landing, and on Mill Plain near Southwest Washington Medical Center. In Portland you've probably seen them parked in North Portland at Albina and Lombard, in Laurelhurst, North of Mt. Tabor and in Irvington on MLK Blvd., amongst other places.
We pride ourselves on donating and recycling as much of the materials we collect on each job as possible. We are able to donate literally tons of items each month in Portland to the Goodwill on 122nd, and in Vancouver on 117th. We are also able to recycle metal, paper, plastics and other items at a number of recycling centers in Portland, Gresham, Troutdale and Vancouver. Additionally, we only utilize transfer stations that sort and recycle materials - even though it is cheaper to dump our trucks at landfills - because we want to make sure items are recycled.
We consider recycling and donating part of the superior service we provide customers. Our employees take pride in wowing people with the level of service we provide in our junk removal and hauling, and a big part of that is going the extra mile to keep items out of landfills and maximize their reuse.
If you need help with junk removal, a trashout, hauling, or recycling because you're remodeling, cleaning up a garage or moving, we're looking forward to meeting you and helping out!

Those of us native to the Pacific Northwest know that with fall rapidly approaching, you must consider the best and most efficient way to get all the leaves out of your yard and off of your property. Leaves can clog drains and gutters, and make for a slippery surface for both walking and driving.
If you have a yard waste bin then we’re sure you’ve already realized that trying to get all of your leaves and yard waste in the bin can be a hassle. Filling the bin and then having to wait up to two weeks to have it emptied just to have to fill it again is both frustrating and inefficient.
Most garbage companies will not take organic waste because landfills won’t accept it. Organic waste and yard waste can easily be recycled and used as fertilizer.

When you have a hot tub you need to get rid of, you may not even know where to start.

Most often, we can use a furniture dolly to push your hot tub out along a concrete path or sidewalk. From there, it is rolled next to our truck, taken off the dolly and tipped into the truck.
If there’s grass or a non-flat section of ground we need to move the hot tub over, we will often roll the hot tub to our truck.

In the summer of 2002, Tom Maryschak began working as the general manager of the 1-800-GOT-JUNK?'s junk removal operations in Portland. Read this article written by Portland's Daily Journal of Commerce that describes how Maryschak and his team of junk haulers use grass-root marketing techniques to spread the work about their junk removal services. The goal is to remind people they have junk, and let them know that we can help them with their junk removal needs.
Last spring, Portland's 1-800-GOT-JUNK? team received a call from a gentleman looking to have a basement clean out. Upon arrival, our junk removers were a bit surprised to find his entire basement filled with canned and dried foods. Apparently he had just closed the doors on a supermarket that he had owned. We didn't want to see all that food go to waste so we started making calls. In just a few calls we had a taker. The Oregon Food Bank received over six tons of non-perishable food products. The customer was thrilled and the Food Bank was extremely happy.
Here in Portland we love to celebrate the holidays. To show our Christmas cheer, we entered the West Linn Holiday Parade. We decorated our junk removal truck and handed out plenty of candy to the kids.
This year, we sponsored the Portland Air Show featuring the Blue Angels. Not only did we have front row seats for a great show, our junk removal crew also handed out hundreds of toy junk trucks to the kids.
The 2007 tornado strike in Vancouver, Washington hit the Vancouver Lake Crew especially hard. A group of rowing athletes lost everything the club owned, including all of their boats and the two mobile homes they used as offices and changing rooms. The tornado also went through a residential neighborhood and left numerous homes, buildings and trees damaged. Our junk removal team watched as the community started to clean up the debris and we decided to head out to the site and volunteer our clean up services. There must have been a couple hundred volunteers as we brought our debris removal expertise to the site. We were able to get recyclers involved and were able to cut the amount of landfill waste in half, maybe more. It was a great day with good people.
In December of 2009, 1-800-GOT-JUNK served as the official recycling partner for one of the largest bicycling events, the US Grand Prix. For the third year in a row, we assisted them in reaching their goal of holding a zero waste event by helping sort then recycling all cardboard, plastics, paper, word and compostable items. We are pleased to announce that our efforts resulted in this 5,000 person event producing less than 300 pounds of waste!
In January of 2010 1-800-GOT-JUNK teamed up with Boy Scout Troops 465 for their annual Christmas tree recycling program. This was the fourth year we have donated our trucks and manpower to the 2 day collection event. This year, we collected 579 trees and raised over $4,200. Since our partnership began, we have collected 2500 trees and raised over $17,000.
On Saturday and Sunday, January 5th and 6th 1-800-GOT-JUNK donated their trucks to the Portland Boy Scouts Troop 465 Christmas Tree Pickup.
This is the 8th year 1-800-GOT-JUNK and the Boy Scouts have joined to pick up Christmas trees in the North East and South East Portland. This year we removed 655 Christmas trees and the Boy Scouts raised $4500. This annual fundraiser funds all the troops operating cost for the year as well as summer camp, whitewater rafting and rock climbing trips. 1-800-GOT-JUNK drivers, including Eagle Scout Jake, transported the scouts and delivered the trucks to an area where they were recycled into mulch.
1-800-GOT-JUNK? and You Move Me donated staff time and trucks to support Portland Boy Scout Troop 465's annual Christmas Tree Pickup event. Truck team members partnered with scouts and parents, driving our vehicles along the collection route and helping to load the trees into the trucks. All trees were then transported to a recycling facility where they were turned into mulch.
This is the fifth consecutive year we have helped Portland Boy Scouts and Venture Crews with their largest fund raiser. This years event collected 607 trees and raised over $5,000 for the troop. These funds cover all operating costs for the year and subsidize half the cost of summer camp for Scouts that participate in the fundraiser.
Please see below for a letter from Troop 465 Scoutmaster, Dan Toyooka.
This year Troop 465 recycled Christmas Trees at the Grocery Outlet store in NE Portland. With the help of Jake and Nathan of 1-800-GOT-JUNK? and You Move Me, Troop 465 was able to collect 607 old Christmas Trees and generate $5,000. Jake and Nathan used 1-800-GOT-JUNK? trucks and along with the scouts, went into the Hollywood neighborhood to collect old Christmas Trees. They then brought the trees back to Grocery Outlet to be counted and loaded into a large dumpster for transport to Woodwaste. This money will support two separate Boy Scout units, Troop 465 and Venturing Crew 308. Troop 465 will use the money to help pay their operating costs (insurance, permit fees, awards, re-charter fee, transportation, equipment, etc.) and summer camp fees. Troop 465 pays ½ the week long summer camp fee for scouts that help with Christmas Tree Recycling (current fee for summer camp is $294/scout). I think this is a perfect opportunity for the scouts to experience working for money that not only benefits them directly, but the Troop as well. This money also supports Venturing Crew 308. This Crew collaborates with Troop 465 and provides an opportunity for Whitewater Rafting and Rock Climbing for the older scouts.
I would like to thank Robert, Jake, Nathan, 1-800-GOT-JUNK? and You Move Me for their support. This is the 5th year of support from your organizations and it makes a huge difference. I really appreciate the help with the collection of trees, but more importantly, the scouts get an opportunity to work with other organizations such as 1-800-GOT-JUNK? and You Move Me to give back to the community. It is our job as scout leaders to give our scouts the tools they need to function as contributing adults and working organizations such as yours is an important part of this.
Thank you again,
Dan Toyooka – Scoutmaster Troop 465
