The crew was great. Hassle free. It was literally as easy as the commercial suggests; "Just point and the junk disappears".

Hi, I’m Anthony Stamson. My wife, Carol, and I own the 1-800-GOT-JUNK? Twin Cities S.W. franchise.

Our biggest junk removal job was in a little house in Minneapolis where they had managed to pile up 25 truckloads of junk! We can do it all. We are the junk removal experts!
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?
When KSTP ran a story about a local family who was facing arrest because of the junk on their property, the three 1-800-GOT-JUNK? franchises banded together and came up with a solution that ended a life time of junk collecting.
Patrick Murphy is a Field Supervisor within the Twin Cities franchise. He has been an employee of 1-800-GOT-JUNK? for over 2 years. In his first year and a half of removing our customer’s unwanted junk, he focused his time in the Plymouth, Maple Grove, and Golden Valley areas. He has recently been spending more time in the eastern suburbs of Roseville, Woodbury, White Bear Lake as well as the southwestern suburbs of Eagan and Apple Valley. He is also falling in the love with the city of St. Paul and its many different areas like Highland Park, Como Park, Crocus Hill, and Macalester/Groveland.
Pat is a resident of north Minneapolis and lives right on the border of Robbinsdale. In his spare time he loves working out, eating, playing drums, listening to music and hanging out with friends. Some of the fun and unique ‘junk’ he’s picked up over the years are a truck load of Amp Energy drinks and another full truck load of cookies.
1-800-GOT-JUNK? is not only environmentally conscious, but socially conscious. We support and work with a number of charitable organizations here in the Twin Cities. This winter we brought our trucks and people out in force to support the City of Lakes Loppet, an internationally recognized ski race through Theodore Wirth Park and across Lake of the Isles into the heart of Uptown. The Loppet is the primary fund raising event for the City of Lakes Nordic Ski Foundation that supports fitness and skiing programs for inner city youth.
We have also worked with organizations like the Arthritis Foundation to provide support for their walk and many smaller organizations as well. If you have a charitable event where we may be of help to you, please contact us.
We love the Twin Cities community, especially participating local community parades. (It just must be the kid in us. ) Let us remove junk from your house or office/business. We can get rid of your old furniture, construction waste, unwanted computers, and other assorted junk.
What is the strangest thing you have ever picked up? Tony Stamson, 1-800-GOT-JUNK? franchise partner for Twin Cities Southwest answers this question, "I have a 5 ft long stuffed Marlin hanging over my desk that I couldn’t bring myself to throw away. We’ve picked up a truckload of Garden Gnomes, refrigerators of spoiled meat, and some couches that you wonder if they were ever really in style. But the strangest thing we’ve ever gotten is in the photo below. What is it? We have no idea. A year of internet searches and showing it to visitors at our office has generated a lot of creative guesses but no plausible answer. So if you can tell us what it is, I’ll send you a 1-800-GOT-JUNK? sweatshirt for the answer".
