Hi, we're Robert Harris and Deserie McCauley and we own and operate the 1-800-GOT-JUNK? Atlanta N.E. franchise. We joined the 1-800-GOT-JUNK? family in October 2002 after reading an article about franchise opportunities in Fortune magazine. Our 1-800-GOT-JUNK? Atlanta N.E. franchise is an environmentally friendly company. All paint, chemicals, tires, computer monitors, propane tanks and batteries are disposed of properly through Greenleaf Environmental, Atlanta Recycling Solutions, Amerigas and Auto Zone. We are staunch advocates of protecting our environment and take great care in ensuring that as much junk as possible is recycled.
In addition to ensuring all hazardous materials are disposed of properly, we also recycle all metal with Newell Recycling, turning over more than three tons of old appliances and other scrap metals to them each month. As a team, we regularly donate to local charities such as Angel Flight, The Dekalb Rape Crisis Center, and Habitat for Humanity, maintaining a sense of community and social responsibility for all 1-800-GOT-JUNK? team members. We also purchase office supplies through United Handicap Assembled Products Inc., and volunteer at the annual Dogwood Festival and the annual Brookhaven Arts Festival. We believe that being a contributing member of the Atlanta community is the best part of owning our own business. Our 1-800-GOT-JUNK? franchise is a member of the Better Business Bureau, the Atlanta Apartment Association, BOMA Atlanta (Building Owners and Managers), and the Georgia Chapter of Community Associations Institute.
Our 1-800-GOT-JUNK? team members can be spotted regularly around town in their famous blue wigs at Buddy's or NEMO's on Peachtree Industrial Blvd, at the Publix shopping center on Chamblee Dunwoody Road, and at Discount Tire on Peachtree Road next to Lowes.
