Great service and the crew was fantastic. A new customer. I just wish there was a frequency "junker" program.

Hi, my name is David Wise. My junk story started in early 2005 when my mother-in-law saw a 1-800-GOT-JUNK? Truck Team removing junk from the King of Prussia Mall. I remember her telling me that I had to look into this junk hauling business. Being an entrepreneur since I could walk, of course I was interested. I did some research, went for an interview, and we opened our 1-800-GOT-JUNK? Lancaster franchise on January 2, 2006.
This area was a natural fit for me. I've lived in Berks County my entire life and attended Governor Mifflin High School. My wife, Lauren, and I currently live in the Wilson School District with our three daughters. Having exceeded all of our revenue and performance goals we were crowned "Rookie of the Year". Wanting to continue this kind of success we decided to purchase the York junk removal franchise, now known as Gettysburg, in June 2007. Our junk removal business continues to grow and we look forward to working with you to reclaim your space!

Michael Zayac, the junk removal operator in Scranton, knows that trash can be put to good uses. His office contains chairs, filing cabinets, and a refrigerator that were obtained through his junk removals. His garbage hauling crew routinely sells, donates, recycles, and reuses the trash they pick up, thus reducing the amount of waste that goes to the landfill. Metals are sold at scrap yards, and paper, cardboard, and plastics are turned over to the Lackawanna County Recycling Center. TheTimes-Tribune published an article about the recycling efforts of 1-800-GOT-JUNK?'s Scranton, PA franchise.
Proud to support The Greater Scranton Chamber Of Commerce
After a devastating flood of the Susquehanna River in Great Bend, PA, several businesses saw their buildings under four feet of water. Once the waters receded, 1-800-GOT-JUNK? and our big blue junk hauling trucks came to the rescue. A state owned and operated liquor store, which saw the brunt of the flooding, needed to remove and destroy all alcohol inventory immediately. After five days and an incredible twelve truckloads of waste later, the store was finally cleaned out all of its contents. This was by far the largest and most interesting junk removal assignment the Scranton franchise has ever completed.
Our culture is very important at 1-800-GOT-JUNK? and we try to get together with our employees regularly to do something outside of work. Our latest adventure was a Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Pioneers Arena Football League (AFL) game. We all sported our 1-800-GOT-JUNK? gear and our big blue wigs and off we went. The PR team for the Pioneers noticed us in the stands and decided to give us the "Best Dressed" award for that night's game!
1-800-GOT-JUNK? was proud to help out the Lackawanna River Corridor Association. In April of 2007, we supplied two 1-800-GOT-JUNK? waste removal trucks and three members of our trash hauling crew to help clean up the the river bank in and around the corridor that runs behind the Ice Box in Scranton. We were there most of the day and ended up removing almost two tons of waste from the banks of the Lackawanna River. All in all it was a great success!
