Sean and partner were very courteous and friendly. They were efficient and there were no hidden surprises.
Junk can be sneaky. It creeps up on you slowly, making its way into your home, filling up all the closets and corners. Before you know it, all the empty spaces are taken up, and you're left wondering what happened to your nice tidy house.
If that sound familiar, you're not alone. Everyone struggles with what to do with their worn-out furniture, outdated appliances, and other types of junk.
Don't you wish you could just point at your junk to make it disappear? With 1-800-GOT-JUNK? you can. We're your Iowa junk removal experts, and we make getting rid of your junk easier than you ever thought possible.
The hardest part of cleaning up your junk can be getting it out of your house. After all, items like refrigerators, mattresses, and exercise equipment are big, bulky, and can be downright dangerous to move by yourself.
Calling 1-800-GOT-JUNK? means you won't have to worry about how you'll get your junk out from where it is right now. We're a full-service junk removal company, and that means we'll load up your junk from anywhere.
Whether you've got boxes of junk in your attic, piles of junk in your garage, or junk in your barn you want us to take, we're up to the challenge. We have the skills and experience it takes to make quick work of your biggest junk headaches, and we'll even sweep up once we've loaded all your junk.
All you need to do is point, and junk disappears.
If you're considering renting a dumpster in Iowa to handle all your junk from a big project like a home renovation, estate property clean-out, or really big spring cleaning job, it's important to know that rental dumpsters aren't always the most efficient way to deal with big loads of junk.
A rental dumpster might be ideal if you know exactly what size of dumpster you need to book, have a dedicated secure spot on your property where the dumpster can sit while you wait for pickup service, and have plenty of strong folks who don't mind hauling your junk into the dumpster bin.
Of course, the simpler solution is to just call us here at 1-800-GOT-JUNK? instead. We'll come over to haul away your junk whenever you need us, which means you won't have to plan ahead to know what size of dumpster you'll wind up requiring. We'll also load up your junk from anywhere on your property so you won't have to drop what you're doing to deal with your junk.
And since our prices are based on the amount of space your junk takes up in our truck, you'll only pay for the junk removal services you actually use.
We've been providing trusted junk removal since 1989, and during that time we've mastered the skills it takes to deal with any type of junk removal job you can toss at us.
Here are just some of the kinds of junk we can make disappear from your Iowa property:
Tires, including tractor tires and rims
Old appliances, including air conditioners, heaters, and stoves
Mattresses and box springs
Outboard motors and small boats
Bicycles, golf clubs, and exercise equipment
Books and clothing
Window coverings and carpets
And because we're committed to environmentally-responsible junk removal, we'll carefully sort any recyclable and reusable items out of the junk we pick up for diversion away from our local landfills.

My name is Tyler Staszak and I’m the owner of the 1-800-GOT-JUNK? Des Moines franchise. I've been with 1-800-GOT-JUNK since 2007 in Kansas City. In 2015 we bought out the Omaha, NE franchise. Now in 2016 we're in Des Moines, IA. I was born in Green Bay, WI and moved to Joplin, MO. After graduating High School in Joplin, I took the opportunity to go to school and work at a software company in San Francisco called Volterra.
I had always wanted to own my own business, and in 2007 I left a successful career in the tech industry to start a business in Kansas City as a Franchise Partner at 1-800-GOT-JUNK?. I am thrilled to have expanded the operation to include Des Moines.
My franchise and I are actively involved in the local community and support many different non-profit organizations including the Patriots Run and Parktoberfest. We pride ourselves on our commitment to customer service and recycling efforts. Every year we recycle and donate thousands of tons of metal, e-waste, furniture and household goods.
Hi, I’m Trent Lorfeld. My wife Susan and I started our 1-800-GOT-JUNK? Quad Cities franchise in July of 2000 making us one of the first 1-800-GOT-JUNK? franchises in the United States. We currently operate six service routes which spread across much of the state of Iowa from Des Moines to western Illinois. Since we started our junk removal business in Iowa we have helped close to 12,000 commercial and residential customers dispose of their unwanted items.
We are currently involved with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources and SWAP (Solid Waste Alternative Program), diverting as much as 3,000 tons of debris annually from area landfills. Our junk Truck Teams realize the importance of donating items to philanthropic organizations. The impact of donating is two-fold: we not only divert trash from the already over taxed waste stream, but by donating working toys, used clothing and other household items, we are fueling resale outlets established to help and provide jobs to the less fortunate. We are a sponsor of the Project Aware River Action clean-ups held throughout the state of Iowa.
Our junk hauling franchise supports realtors, banks, property managemers and REO service companies by providing initial services and cleaning out of foreclosure properties. Upon request we provide free estimates, before and after photos of the job site, evictions and many other initial services.
This weekend we will be helping with an event in Des Moines called “River Run Garbage Grab” or “R2G2” for short. The event is a cleanup on the Des Moines River, Raccoon River and Walnut Creek. We will be picking up & recycling the loads from 9 sites around Des Moines. The website for the event is http://riverstewards.org
For the past two years our junk removal franchise has been a proud sponsor of Project AWARE (A Watershed Awareness River Expedition) which is an initiative of the Department of Natural Resources' IOWATER, Water Trails and Keepers of the Land program. Volunteers participate by floating down the scenic rivers of Iowa in canoes and kayaks, cleaning up river trash along the way. The expeditions last an entire week. Our 1-800-GOT-JUNK? teams dispose of the river debris by going to various parks along the route and transporting it to the landfill where it is sorted into different recycling piles and recycled. In the five year history of Project AWARE, the participants have cleaned up more than 400 river miles and four different lakes, and removed 1,000 cubic yards of trash, of which 85% was recycled.
