We used 1-800-GOT-JUNK three diffeent times in the process of down-sizing and we couldn't, say enough good things about every aspect of its service...
The world is evolving and it's evolving at an alarmingly rapid rate. It's evolving in every aspect, but particularly in the realm of electronics. Cell phones are now smartphones, and computers have gone from black monitors with green letters to flat screens with digital capabilities and built-in Wi-Fi. TVs are no longer big and bulky.
Instead, they're flat and 3-D like, with the ability to save space and hang on your wall, making you feel as though you're sitting in the movie theater instead of the living room of your home (depending on how large your TV is!). So with all of this upgrading, what are we supposed to do with the stone age electronics of the past that are now left behind in the dust of modern technology?
As you likely know, the trash company will not take your old, big screen TV that requires the arms of several strong men to lift. Instead, it's up to you to take that big, bulky TV across town to the recycling center, or to stick it out front of your home with a FREE sign, praying someone takes it before it rains. But there's one more option you may not realize you have—call 1-800-GOT-JUNK? for Columbus electronics removal!

Hi, I'm Joe Gillotti, the owner of the 1-800-GOT-JUNK? Columbus franchise. We opened in January 2004 and are in our 6th year in Columbus, Ohio. We focus on being "green" junk removers and trying to keep as much junk out of the waste stream as possible. We have developed local relationships with E-Waste recyclers, charities including Habitat for Humanity, Materials Assistance Providers (MAP), paper recyclers, metal recyclers, and others. We chose our office space so it would be easier for us to offload all items that do not need to go to the landfill. We are working every month to improve this process, while providing excellent service to our customers.
Prior to joining the junk removal business, I was in the professional world for 17 years, six of those as a CPA and 11 years as an attorney. I was born and raised in Ohio and I am a graduate of the Ohio State University and Capital University Law School, living in Columbus since 1986. Go Buckeyes!
Piles of junk sit waiting to be picked up at one Columbus location.
"Anything that two guys can lift and load after light demolition. That's what we do," said 1-800-Got-Junk owner Joe Gillotti.
It takes some heavy lifting to get everything into the truck bed. Items include signs of holidays gone by, old electronics, favorite toys of yesterday, and even appliances.
"The goal is to be as green as possible and keep things out of the landfill," explained Gillotti. The junk is hauled here to a warehouse where it's unloaded and sorted. The furniture, the metal scrap, even the old golf clubs have piles.
"We off load it at our facility and then we collect enough to take to a recycler or someone that can reuse the items," added Gillotti. 1-800-Got-Junk has increased the amount of junk they recycle or reuse since the business came to central Ohio. The extra step to go green does cost money, but recycling also earns these stewards of the environment extra cash.
"With metal we do try to collect metal to get some dollars to offset my extra labor and fuel and facility costs," said Gillotti.
