Got Junk is timely... they call when they say they do. The guys that come and load up the truck are great! They communicate and are just so nice.
Every year, thousands of pieces of electronics become obsolete, resulting in countless computers, mobile devices, and more ending up in our local landfill. You probably know that your old electronics shouldn't be thrown out with the weekly trash, but transporting them to a local recycling facility isn't always convenient.
At 1-800-GOT-JUNK?, we provide a fast and easy solution for you. In many cases, our junk removal team is able to provide same-day pickup, making it easier than ever to get your unwanted gadgets off your hands. We love taking on junk removal challenges of all sizes, so give us a call today and show us what we're up against!
Hiding your old computer monitor amongst your weekly trash may be an easy disposal option, but it definitely isn't the most environmentally responsible thing to do. Why not? Well, your old electronics are constructed of valuable materials, like plastic, copper, and aluminum. When we recycle these materials, we conserve energy and natural resources while helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Additionally, electronics contain heavy metals, like lead, chromium, and mercury, all of which can leach into our soil and waterways, contaminating our environment.
Throwing out old electronics is not only bad for the environment, but it can also jeopardize your privacy and financial security. Dumpsters and garbage cans often contain a wealth of personal information and are a popular target for identity thieves. Even if your computers or devices are password-protected, an experienced criminal can bypass your security settings and gain access to bank accounts, passwords, and more private information. By ensuring that your electronics are properly disposed of, you can help keep your personal information safe.
Our experts at 1-800-GOT-JUNK? can take nearly any type of electronic device. Some common items that we are asked to take include:
Computer monitors and peripherals
Household and industrial copiers, printers, scanners, and fax machines

Hi, I'm Noah Lander, your local franchise owner for 1-800-GOT-JUNK? St. Louis. We're proud to be the largest junk removal company in the St. Louis Metro area. I began servicing St. Louis in April 2001 when I returned home after graduating from the University of Arizona. As someone who has always loved entrepreneurship, I jumped at the opportunity to fill a need for quality junk removal in my hometown. I spent my first year working on our one and only junk truck, removing junk from homes and businesses all over the metropolitan area. It was an amazing opportunity to travel around this great city and learn about St. Louis' distinctly individual neighborhoods.
In early 2007, we expanded 1-800-GOT-JUNK? into the Metro East for full-time service in Illinois. In our seven years of junk removal, our junk fleet has grown to 10 trucks and a staff of 18. We work throughout the St. Louis region from the Chesterfield Valley to Florissant, Creve Coeur, Fenton, St. Charles, Alton, Fairview Heights, Webster Groves and Clayton. You may have seen us at Schaefer's Shell Station at Manchester and Big Bend in Maplewood, where we've parked our 1-800-GOT-JUNK? trucks for two years. In addition to clearing clutter, we like to find new ways to spread the word about our great service. On many sunny days we can be found at the corners of 141 & Olive Blvd. or Hwy 44 & Kirkwood Rd. wearing our blue wigs, holding our 1-800-GOT-JUNK? signs and waving to people and cars passing by.
To show our gratitude to Saint Louis for supporting 1-800-GOT-JUNK? and helping us grow our business over our first five years, we wanted to find a way to give back to our local community. We discovered Operation Food Search, a local charity that has been helping those in need in Saint Louis Metro for 25 years. We were truly inspired to help. Each December we hold our annual Hauling for Hunger Food & Fund Drive benefiting Operation Food Search. We also contribute to a variety other St. Louis charities and enjoy participating in community events throughout the region. In addition to donating furniture to Goodwill and The Salvation Army, and books to the University City Library, we proudly support the Clayton High School Football Boosters, Connections to Success and their Dress for Success Midwest program. We have taken part in the Webster Groves 4th of July Parade, Greater Belleville Chamber of Commerce Annual Chili Cook-off and Belleville's Santa Parade.
