1-800-GOT-JUNK? got its start in Vancouver, when university student Brian Scudamore encountered a tight summer job market in Vancouver and started a junk removal service called The Rubbish Boys.

Junk Removal - Reno
More Details

Hi, we are the Bruce family, your local owners and operators of 1-800-GOT-JUNK?'s junk removal franchise in northern Nevada. We opened our junk removal business in March 2004 after seeing how helpful the service was and knowing that it fit with our desire to build a business focused on providing a fun, exceptional customer experience. On any given day, you may get to see us doing our "blue wig waves" all over Reno, Sparks, Truckee Meadows, Carson City, and the Carson Valley. It's our way of showcasing 1-800-GOT-JUNK?'s junk removal services and reminding people about our fun spirit. Our occupational backgrounds are in sales, marketing, accounting, and customer service, which are ideal for building our leadership team at 1-800-GOT-JUNK?. Our operations manager, Shawn Wilburn, is at the heart of our junk removal business. Shawn's experience in the construction industry has helped focus our efforts on creating a unique and fun-filled customer experience.

No doubt you have seen one of our junk trucks parked in your area. We park our 1-800-GOT-JUNK? trucks in Reno and Sparks on Virginia St., Kietzke Lane, Moana Lane, McCarran Blvd., Lakeside, Prater Way, Skyline, Mt. Rose Highway, Oddie, Vista, Disc Drive, Pyramid Highway, King's Row, Mae Anne, Mayberry, near the University of Nevada campus, and many other locations. In Carson City, you are likely to spot our junk hauling trucks on Carson St., William St., Roop St., College Parkway, Edmunds, Fairview, Kings St., Winnie Lane, or along Highway 395 in Minden or Gardnerville.

At 1-800-GOT-JUNK?, we practice the three "R's" of junk: Reuse, Recycle and Refuse. We make every effort to keep usable junk out of our landfills. If our junk removal crew thinks an item can be donated to a local thrift store, we take it to places like Habitat for Humanity, FISH, Classy Seconds, Salvation Army, Goodwill, Reno Arc, or Savers. If an item can be recycled, including metal, cardboard, green waste, paper, glass, or plastic, we ensure it gets to the right places. If we can't find somewhere to donate or recycle the junk, then it becomes refuse.

We have partnered with the City of Reno, Carson City and Washoe County where we have donated free junk removal service to the elderly and disabled. During Reno Clean & Green and Carson City's Pride Week, we provided free junk removal to hundreds of citizens who did not have the ability to get rid of their junk on their own. We enjoy helping people in need and teaching an important life lesson to our employees. After all, we are part of the community we service and we want to make a contribution. We also get involved in community-wide clean up programs including Earth Day events featuring free electronics waste (e-waste) collection, the Great Truckee Meadows Community Wide Clean Up, the Kiwani's Carson River Clean Up, and disaster fire relief activities.

Our 1-800-GOT-JUNK? franchise is a member of the Reno Sparks Chamber of Commerce, the Carson City Chamber of Commerce, the Reno Sparks Association of Realtors, and the Sierra Nevada Association of Realtors. We understand that business and homeowners need help in the stressful activity of getting rid of junk and clutter. Visit us at important local shows like the Lockett & Sullivan Home Show, the Reno Total Home Show, and the Nevada Women's Expo or call us at 1-800-GOT-JUNK?.

Ann St. in Carson City, NV 89703, three blocks from the intersection of Carson St. and William St., two blocks from the Governor's Mansion and adjacent to the old Carson Tahoe Hospital. We park two of our junk trucks in Reno at the corner of Kietzke Lane and Moana Lane, just blocks from the Reno-Sparks Convention Center.

Junk Hauler Uncovers Heritage Mantle

1-800-GOT-JUNK? was called to remove an interesting piece of "junk" from a Gardnerville home: a 20-foot tall mantle made of solid wood. The initial plan was to cut it up with a chainsaw and then load the wood into our junk truck. But once our junk removal team got on site, one of the drivers recognized the "junk"'s true value. The appointment was thus canceled while we tried to find a taker for the mantle. Douglas County's Record-Courier wrote an Internet article on the story, and people as far away as San Francisco called to make a bid on the mantle.

Free Junk Removal During Pride Week In Carson City

1-800-GOT-JUNK? is proud to be a part of Pride Week in Carson City, the city's annual clean up week. During the 2010 Pride Week, we offered three junk removal appointments per day for elderly or disabled Carson City residents at no cost. The Nevada Appeal wrote about how we removed tree branches and assorted junk from a senior woman's home as part of this event.

In The Community

Giving Back To Nevada

In northern Nevada and Lake Tahoe, 1-800-GOT-JUNK? thrives on getting involved with the communities we live in. Since we started our business, we have actively given back to local seniors and the disabled by offering free junk removal services during Carson City's Pride Week, Reno's Clean & Green, and Washoe County's Great Truckee Meadows Community-wide Clean Up. We enjoy helping those who have contributed so much to our communities for so many years and now need a helping hand to keep their homes and yards free of unwanted junk and clutter.

We also volunteer our services when the community is in need. Keeping connected to our communities is a core value for 1-800-GOT-JUNK?.

Mine Shaft Clean Out

Wow! Cleaning out a Comstock-era mine shaft was pretty exciting. The setting, in the foothills just south of Virginia City, was the perfect location for 1-800-GOT-JUNK? to clean out years of accumulated junk and debris. Our trash removal team could only venture a few yards into the shaft before losing light, so temporary lighting had to be strung into the shaft. Even with the temporary lighting, the twists, turns and shadows of the shaft made for an eerie environment. Who knows what stories the mine holds of days long past. Our junk haulers worked with great anticipation of turning over old miners tools or lost nuggets of precious silver, gold, and gem stones. Alas, this mine held only junk.Reno_Mine_Shaft_Cleanout
