Every year, millions of pieces of technology become obsolete. Unfortunately, all too often, these outdated televisions, computers, mobile devices, and stereos end up at the Tacoma Recovery and Transfer Center, where they're left to take up space in the landfill. While everyone knows that electronics should not be tossed out with the weekly trash, finding a good alternative is difficult. It's no wonder that old tech is often hidden in the weekly trash or left and forgotten in the far corners of basements across the city.
Until now, that is. At 1-800-GOT-JUNK?, we specialize in providing easy and environmentally responsible electronics removal and recycling solutions for Tacoma residents. We will take your old electronics from wherever they are on your property, load them up on to our truck, and ensure that they are disposed of in a way that is socially and environmentally responsible.
Every year, metal makes up nearly 10 percent of the waste that ends up in landfills. That's roughly 24 million tons of metal trash! Not only does this take up a massive amount of space in landfills across the country, but its impact on the environment reaches even further. Metal is a finite resource that is difficult, time-consuming, and potentially hazardous to the environment to harvest and process. Fortunately, it can easily be recycled.
At 1-800-GOT-JUNK?, we're dedicated to keeping as much waste out of the landfill as possible, which is why we never throw the old electronics we pick up into the local landfill. After we've taken your outdated tech, we donate everything that is still in usable condition to one of Tacoma's local charities. Items that are no longer working will be taken to a trusted recycling facility, where they will be broken down and process for future use.
At 1-800-GOT-JUNK?, we take it all, from old televisions and sound equipment to paper clutter and unwanted toys. Our junk removal experts love taking on challenges of all sizes. We take anything that can be lifted by a team of two professional Tacoma junk removal experts and transported by one of our trucks. Items that we often take include:
Bedroom furniture and mattresses
China cabinets and dining room furniture
Countertops, cabinets, and cupboards
Bathroom and kitchen fixtures
Working and nonworking appliances
Construction and renovation debris
Toys, books, and baby gear
Clothing and shoes
And anything else you have lying around!

Junk removal is not your typical industry. I got in to junk removal because everyone complains about home services, and 1-800-GOT-JUNK? was a chance to wow people in an industry where people do not expect it at all.
We’re different than the competition because of our people. For example, when we’re hiring, we look at 100 candidates and only hire the one person that fits in with our team of highly trained, pleasant professionals. We’re actually competitive about customer service internally – everyone strives to provide the best customer experience and have the best metrics! For us, a team that works well together and prides itself on excellence in customer service is what sets us apart from other companies specializing in junk removal.
Another thing that makes 1-800-GOT-JUNK? Bellevue / Tacoma different from other junk removal services in the area is our commitment to recycling and donating the things we collect. We have a large yard and warehouse where we take most of the stuff we pick up to be sorted for recycling. We house a separate entity – Pickers Warehouse – at our office. The goal of Pickers Warehouse is to divert as much of the junk we pick up as possible, with all proceeds going to local charities and other such organizations.
Before hauling your junk away in the Bellevue and Tacoma areas, I was a project manager for an IT company. These days, I spend most of my free time chasing around my two young kids.
