Hi, I'm Noah Lander, your local franchise owner for 1-800-GOT-JUNK? St. Louis. We're proud to be the largest junk removal company in the St. Louis Metro area. I began servicing St. Louis in April 2001 when I returned home after graduating from the University of Arizona. As someone who has always loved entrepreneurship, I jumped at the opportunity to fill a need for quality junk removal in my hometown. I spent my first year working on our one and only junk truck, removing junk from homes and businesses all over the metropolitan area. It was an amazing opportunity to travel around this great city and learn about St. Louis' distinctly individual neighborhoods.
In early 2007, we expanded 1-800-GOT-JUNK? into the Metro East for full-time service in Illinois. In our seven years of junk removal, our junk fleet has grown to 10 trucks and a staff of 18. We work throughout the St. Louis region from the Chesterfield Valley to Florissant, Creve Coeur, Fenton, St. Charles, Alton, Fairview Heights, Webster Groves and Clayton. You may have seen us at Schaefer's Shell Station at Manchester and Big Bend in Maplewood, where we've parked our 1-800-GOT-JUNK? trucks for two years. Now we are proud to operate out of our St. Louis headquarters on the northwest corner of Olive & Skinker in University City. We are a few blocks north of the Delmar Loop, a few miles away from Forest Park and downtown Clayton. Our shiny blue trucks are parked around the metro area from the 7-11 on Woodbine in Kirkwood, Missouri to Scuba World on Hwy 159 in Swansea, Illinois.
In addition to clearing clutter, we like to find new ways to spread the word about our great service. On many sunny days we can be found at the corners of 141 & Olive Blvd. or Hwy 44 & Kirkwood Rd. wearing our blue wigs, holding our 1-800-GOT-JUNK? signs and waving to people and cars passing by.
To show our gratitude to Saint Louis for supporting 1-800-GOT-JUNK? and helping us grow our business over our first five years, we wanted to find a way to give back to our local community. We discovered Operation Food Search, a local charity that has been helping those in need in Saint Louis Metro for 25 years. We were truly inspired to help. Each December we hold our annual Hauling for Hunger Food & Fund Drive benefiting Operation Food Search. We also contribute to a variety other St. Louis charities and enjoy participating in community events throughout the region. In addition to donating furniture to Goodwill and The Salvation Army, and books to the University City Library, we proudly support the Clayton High School Football Boosters, Connections to Success and their Dress for Success Midwest program. We have taken part in the Webster Groves 4th of July Parade, Greater Belleville Chamber of Commerce Annual Chili Cook-off and Belleville's Santa Parade.

In 2006, 1-800-GOT-JUNK? St. Louis started Hauling For Hunger, a food and fund drive benefiting Operation Food Search. For four years, during the month of December, we collected food, personal care products and household items to help those in our community who use Operation Food Search’s local food banks. We proudly gave our customers the opportunity to join in Hauling For Hunger and we were overwhelmed with the amazing support we received for this important cause.
Environmental responsibility is an important part of 1-800-GOT-JUNK? St. Louis. Much of the "junk" that we pick up is recycled and donated.

After graduating from university, Noah Lander wanted nothing to do with suits and ties. Instead, he turned to a career that focused on removing junk from the homes and businesses of St. Louis! What sets his trash removal service apart from large waste haulers and second-hand stores? His ability to take away his customer's furniture, appliances and construction debris no matter where it is. It could be in the basement, attic, garage, or construction site. Lander also donates his services to several non-profit organizations in St. Louis, including Hilljack House and RAVEN.
