Andrew Knutson and Ben Cowan have been operating their 1-800-GOT-JUNK? Twin Cities franchise since 2003. Both came out of their respective corporate worlds to reap the satisfaction of being pioneers in professionalizing the junk removal industry. In 7 years, they’ve helped over 15,000 people in the Twin Cities remove unwanted items from their lives – like furniture, appliances, construction debris, computers, electronics, to just about anything you can think of that someone might classify as junk, trash, garbage or unwanted treasures. From single items jobs, to multi truck load garage, home or business cleanouts, we remove it all.
While their business removes a lot of junk, they also pride themselves in how much they are able to divert from the waste stream and landfills. Almost all of the metal taken is recycled through various recyclers. Televisions, computers, and other e-waste or electronics are recycled. Many items are donated to Goodwill, the Salvation Army, and Bridging. And a lot of the remaining junk is taken to Hennepin County transfer stations that end up burning off the junk and converting that energy into electricity to power 25,000 homes each year. Their territory covers a very large area including some of the western suburbs like Plymouth, Maple Grove, & Golden Valley to the eastern suburbs of Roseville, White Bear Lake, Woodbury and Stillwater, and all the way south down to Eagan and Apple Valley.
We specialize in same day junk removal and in most cases can be to your home or business hauling away your unwanted items in a matter of minutes – how cool is that? We look forward to the opportunity to earn your business.
We have also opened a sister company to 1-800-GOT-JUNK? called You Move Me. We're your favorite local Minneapolis movers! We're planning on bringing the same high level of customer service to the moving industry that our customers have come to expect from 1-800-GOT-JUNK?
