Junk on your property or at your business is an inevitable side effect of finishing a big renovation or cleaning project, and it can stand in the way of that important feeling of satisfaction you get from making progress. You need to get rid of it, but what can you do?
You could call your municipal trash collection and schedule a time for them to make a special trip to pick up the junk from your home or business
You could rent a dumpster, wait for a team to bring it out, and then when you're done putting the junk in it, call the same team to pick it up again.
You could hire 1-800-GOT-JUNK? for reliable, full-service junk removal, anytime.
The problem with leaving it up to the city to pick up your junk is that most municipal waste departments have specific regulations about what they'll pick up and when they'll do it. That leaves you with small windows, and you might not even be able to get rid of it all.
The problem with dumpster rental is that even though you have a way to get rid of all your junk, you have to do all the work yourself while a big, ugly dumpster sits in your front lawn or driveway.
That's where we come in. 1-800-GOT-JUNK? is here to be your Ann Arbor dumpster rental alternative.
1-800-GOT-JUNK? is a full-service solution to the junk that accumulates at your home or business. Instead of dumpsters, we bring over our trucks, and instead of leaving them there, we do all the work (and we mean ALL) before taking the junk away and disposing of it responsibly. Here's how it works:
When you have a junk problem in Ann Arbor, give us a call and tell us a little about. We'll schedule a time with you to come and handle it. Meanwhile, we'll start building a team for your job.
When the day of your junk removal rolls around, our friendly, uniformed junk haulers will show up right on time and get to work. There's no need to drag junk to the curb or even put it into bags. Just show us the areas that you need your junk taken away from — just point, and junk disappears!
For commercial and residential customers in Ann Arbor, we'll take any kind of junk, as long as it a.) isn't hazardous, and b.) can be safely handled by a team of able-bodied junk removers. Listing out everything we take would take all day; here are just a few examples:
Scrap metal and car parts
Commercial office equipment

We have had so much fun getting involved in community events! They have provided us with some surprises and opportunities to meet people who need our junk removal service. We were contacted by the horn section of the University of Michigan Marching Band after they saw our junk pickup trucks driving about and asked if they could "adopt" us for the year. We provided them all 1-800-GOT-JUNK? t-shirts and had a blast taking pictures of them perched on one of our junk pickup trucks!
We also love to sign up for local parades. You can always find our junk removers there! Every year we are in the Ann Arbor 4th of July Parade as well as the Chelsea Festival of Lights Parade held in December. Last year we decided to do some fundraising work and signed up for Climb Detroit, an event run by the American Lung Association. We wore our Powered By Junk shirts and ran/walked all the steps to the top of the Renaissance Center in downtown Detroit.
We had a major challenge in August of 2006 when we had a fire in our office on Washtenaw Ave. in Ann Arbor. Old and faulty wiring caused a fire behind a wall which immediately burst into flames and thick, choking smoke. We were there at the time and were able to get our staff, computers and files outside quickly. There were residential apartments above our office in the same building, so our junk crew ran upstairs and pounded on doors to wake everyone up and get them out. It turns out that there were no smoke alarms upstairs, so our junk crew helped prevent a potential tragedy. The fire was put out quickly by the fast and professional work of the Ann Arbor Fire Department.
Culture and the blue wig spirit are extremely important to our junk removal business and help us attract fantastic people to haul junk for us. Junk hauling is really hard work, so the fun element helps all of us look forward to the next day of junk pickups and keeps us all motivated to give our best to every client. We encourage our junk removers to bring their own spirit and creativity to each and every trash hauling job.
