Hi, we are the Bruce family, your local owners and operators of the 1-800-GOT-JUNK? Reno 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? Reno 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.
