Junk Removal Atlanta

Fast, eco-friendly junk removal in Atlanta, GA

Meet the Owner of Junk King Atlanta North

Junk King is North America’s number one green junk removal service—built on the premise that junk hauling services can be faster, greener, and holistically better than any other removal options. As a result of this belief and our dedication to commitments, Junk King can be found across America and all the way up into the Canadian provinces.

In Atlanta, Georgia the Junk King commitment was taken on by Harry Van Buren in January of 2012. Starting with a single truck and his two sons, Van Buren has expanded his single location in Northern Atlanta to three locations (including the Cobb County and Gwinnett County Junk Kings), ten trucks, and over twenty employees.

Affordable Junk Removal with Junk King Atlanta

We all know that recycling is the only way for future generations to continue to use the earth’s precious resources. When there are so many people, with so much stuff, there is bound to be a breaking point; either the population outperforms our resource abilities, our resources become abused and are emptied, or the accumulation of all of humanity’s stuff becomes too much, too difficult to handle, and the problem becomes too dangerous to fix.

Van Buren saw these as possible futures before his franchising with Junk King—and in many ways, his choice to work with Junk King was heavily influenced by these possibilities. In an interview done in 2021, almost nine years after opening Junk King Atlanta North, Van Buren confirmed that the future of humanity was on his mind when he chose Junk King:

“I was looking for a business that would be around for the species, not so much [like] Blockbuster or Yellow Cab…I was looking for a business that would be sustainable as long as there’s [our] species on the planet…You know you hear a lot of different experts [approximating the amount of stuff the world can hold] in terms of the amount of people. You can hear anything from 10 billion to 15 billion. But [at] the rate that the population is exploding, we’re not too far away from 10 billion people, we’re not. And if we don’t start thinking more about recycling, donating, repurposing, [we’re] to the point where—if we don’t reuse the resources—[the resources] are going to be gone. So that’s [why we do this, and how] important our business is to the survival of the species. It really, truly is a survival of the species business.”

Van Buren’s concerns are what led him to franchise with Junk King. Junk King is known today as being the greenest junk removal service in North America—with a commitment of 60% of all hauling being reused, repurposed, donated, or recycled—and for Van Buren in 2012, that was the perfect philosophy model to reach his own goals. Five years after their original opening in California, Junk King opened their business to franchisors, and two years later Van Buren took the plunge.

The Van Buren Family: the Junk King Family of North Atlanta

Before Junk King North Atlanta opened, Van Buren had been looking for a way to help his family. At the time, one of his sons was expecting their first child while also working in a warehouse for little pay. Simultaneously, another Van Buren son was just graduating from business school. Once Van Buren saw an opportunity to franchise with Junk King, he only needed to speak to his sons to get them on board. Since then, Van Buren has recruited nearly all of his family into the business.

Van Buren’s son, John, once rode almost every truck with every haul. Years after having his first child, John has cut back his truck rides down to a few times a week—the rest of his time is cut between family and training duties for their combined 20+ employees.

Van Buren’s son, James, also rode on those same trucks with his brother. His time now is spent mostly away from the hauls; instead, he has become the face of their third location, Cobb County. He’s also in training now to become the eventual spearhead for the entire business after Van Buren retires.

Van Buren’s daughter, Christy, would join the team after her brothers. She started working a few hours a week in the Junk King office, and since then has become the machine behind the scenes. And, seeing as Van Buren has reported a revenue of around two million dollars, with more to come in the future, Christy has her work cut out for her.

Van Buren himself has spoken about what it’s like being the Junk King family of Atlanta, saying:

“My first son, John, had our first grandchild—and now we have nine…in previous years, [the grandchildren] all run around [during the holidays]. They wear Junk King shirts, Junk King hats, Junk King hoodies. We [often] have lively conversations about junk and junk removal when we have a family gets togethers.”

In regard to the grandkids, Van Buren sees the future of his family and his legacy:

The Van Buren Junk King: Trusted, Experienced, and Eco-Friendly

Junk King is currently recognized as one of the best businesses to ‘get into’. They are ranked as number one for North America in terms of their green commitment, customer service, and track record. In Atlanta, the Junk King removal philosophy is only a part of why people choose to haul with Van Buren; the other part is Van Buren’s own beliefs about how a removal service should be run.

“Primarily, we just pick up junk,” Van Buren has said, “We offer full-service junk removal, which is—we, one of the things I like to say is—‘the heaviest thing you should have to lift is the telephone’. You just point, sit back, and relax; and that’s the full-service. We’ll go in there and we’ll remove whatever you point at. The second [option for service, is] the do-it-yourself part of our business; so we provide a residential-sized dumpster to some of our do-it-yourself customers, and they do it themselves. There’s no contactless junk removal [for most removal services, but for us] those are the two main services that we offer.”

Junk King Atlanta North doesn’t just offer residential solutions for Atlanta junk removal and hauling, they also offer assistance to businesses in the form of B2B; realtors, property managers, small demo contractors, and many office landlords have called on Junk King Atlanta North for help. Van Buren gave an example in his 2021 interview:

“A lot of people went to work from home [during the pandemic] and we got a good amount of business from people going to work from home. [The reason for that is] just as the offices were vacated there was no need to have them, so some of the larger companies that had offices that they no longer needed—had equipment that they no longer needed—things such as office cubical walls, old desks, old filing cabinets, we cleaned [everything] out.

And on the flip side, the [people] working from home, would have to take their basements, or—in one case in particular that I remember—they had a porch and they ended up building it [out to make a home office]. While they were doing that, we hauled away some of the construction debris, and when they were all finished we hauled away some of their used equipment [too]. So, there were a lot of people that needed us when they were setting up their home offices as well.”

What happens with all of the junk and stuff that Junk King Atlanta North picks up? It’s Junk King’s commitment to being eco-friendly that separates it so drastically from its competitors. Junk King as a company pushes for at least 60% of all hauling being recycled—but Van Buren’s mission is a far higher percentage:

“We offer full-service junk removal—‘the heaviest thing you should have to lift is the telephone”

×

“[Junk King is] helping the environment. Part of our business model is that we try to recycle, repurpose, donate—70% of what we collect. [We have] a mission to get to maybe 95-99% of what we pick up. You know, [our ability to do that] ranges from a lot of different [aspects, from] household furniture all the way to construction debris. And a lot of that stuff is definitely reusable and we do a lot of repurposing and donating in our business.”

Junk King Atlanta North—More than Junk Removal For Atlanta

Atlanta junk removal can be a dirty business, and when it becomes overwhelming or difficult, Junk King is there to help. Van Buren has created a space in Atlanta for Junk King as a necessity for the community—and it is a role that has not escaped Van Buren’s insight:

“Everybody has a reason for getting rid of their junk. One time I kept a list of all the different things that we picked up [during the day’s haul]. I wish I had kept that list. Everybody has a story as to why they are having their junk removed; whether it be a death in the family or [for instance] we have a promotion around Valentine’s day that’s called “Dump the Ex”, where we take away the ex’s stuff that they still have and take it away for a greatly reduced price. [That’s made] some stories, and some humorous ones, at that.”

Van Buren continued his thought later in the interview, upon reflecting about his time with Junk King and junk removal, he concluded:

“It’s been a very satisfying business, I mean it’s grown. I get a lot of pleasure out of helping people, you can’t believe how many smiles we put on people’s faces. When we go there and their—as an example—their garage is just packed, wall to wall, floor to ceiling, front to back; when we leave, we’ve got little piles of things we’re gonna recycle, we’re gonna donate, [some things end up needing to go to the landfill]…and they can park their cars in their garage. That’s just a small example [of what we do] and they are so happy.”

Yard Waste Removal

Yard Waste Removal

Yard clean-up involves more than just grass and leaves. You might also need to remove old fences, gardening equipment or other random junk that’s been “collected” after years of home ownership.

When you’re tackling a big project, it sometimes means you’ll have a lot more waste than what your green bin can hold.

Yard waste removal is a seasonal process that is usually done in the spring. Clearing things from outside after neglecting them for many months can help insulate homes from any damage that may have been caused by the harsh winter climate. If you’re a gardener, spring and summer will likely leave you dealing with piles of empty bags, old planters, and even broken lawn furniture.

Taking all this to the dump is a pain in the neck and it can take up a lot of time which could be better spent doing other things.

Hoarder Cleanouts

Junk pick up

A cleanout can be triggered by a variety of reasons. They may be due to the passing away of a loved one or because you’re moving to a new property. It’s also surprisingly common for there to have been an excess accumulation of everything and anything, which can make it necessary for you to take professional help in carrying out your project.

Hoarding can be a problem for many people for some reasons. Our homes can be loaded with clutter that is harmful to our wellbeing. It’s just the result of bad habits that are difficult to break. That’s why it is imperative that you stop holding on to outdated items, throwing them out instead if needed, so you don’t have to live with this bad habit any longer.

Regardless of the reason, hoarding can become a real problem for the occupants. This is what happened to an elderly couple living in a junk-laden home in their local Atlanta community.

Junk King Atlanta uses teams of two professional junk removal experts for residential jobs, including hoarder cleanouts. If you’re looking for the perfect crew to help you declutter and haul away your junk and garbage, these two guys are a perfect team. They’re able to lift and load up large furniture, appliances, old toys – just about any large item no matter how heavy it may be. In some special cases of hoarder cleanouts where there’s a lot of items that

Junk King Atlanta is happy to make hoarder cleanouts a priority and meet any additional requirements including diverting resources.

Remember, you don’t have to wait until your home gets so cluttered that it becomes unmanageable. To keep the house clean and tidy, we can remove any amount of junk you’d like us to take away at once.

In addition to all these items, we also offer other residential green junk removal services such as:

“Absolutely Amazing! We ordered one truck but soon realized we needed more on the same day. They were very reassuring…we can do it. Josh, Wes, Eric and Carter should get employees of the month! They removed 4 truck loads!! It was an amazing experience and we will recommend them to everyone!!”

Commercial Junk Removal

Items We Take – Commercial Items

If you’ve been searching for a way to dispose of old office desks or an unwanted credenza, you may have found that the waste management company won’t take them.

While some waste management providers can arrange for a special pick up, this usually comes with additional fees and making an appointment for the pickup. However, if you have large commercial junk removal needs frequently, this arrangement isn’t practical.

You need to find another way to get it done.

For major junk or debris that needs to be relocated, there are two good options:

The first option is to try your luck at hauling it yourself, but this can be time consuming and risky. The second option is to find a junk hauling company that will do all of the heavy lifting for you.

But keep in mind that “doing it yourself” may not save you money. The time invested by your employees means they spend less time making money for your business, and this will cost you.

If you’re in charge of arranging disposal for your company, every time you arrange a junk removal trip in Atlanta, your employees will need to haul out the debris and junk. You or they will then need to load it onto a truck or van and drive it to a suitable facility for disposal at the other end.

Bigger Trucks

Once there, they’ll need to unload all of the space they

All that time loading up the truck or wasting time in traffic is taking away from the money-making tasks you should be doing. But, you’re not paying people to do these “dump runs”. Every waste trip has a cost – and it’s more than you think!

At Junk King Atlanta, we’re all about removing your commercial junk in a time-effective and cost-friendly manner.

Here are some of the items we take:

Commercial Equipment Removal

Wooden Pallets

Every business knows that when it comes to spending, every decision needs careful consideration. One such decision is removing old machines, or junk pallets – which can involve a cost.

It’s always more cost-effective to outsource junk removal professionals jobs to a local company not only because different companies have different pricing but because it will lead to higher quality results. Many small businesses find it hard to haul and dispose of excessive junk. Commercial-sized equipment is often bulky, heavy, and hard to manage.

commercial junk removal services

It’s no surprise, then, that the best move would be to outsource this work to a professional junk removal firm like Junk King Atlanta.

Office Furniture Removal

If you’re still holding on to your old office furniture even though it’s damaged and outdated, there’s a good chance that you’ll need to dispose of it at some point. This can be time-consuming and arduous work to do alone.

If you hire a professional firm like Junk King Atlanta, their team will do all the hard work and haul it all away for you. Hiring a reliable office furniture removal service is the smart decision if you want to save time, energy and stress.

Hiring Junk King to come and throw away your old clutter is a brilliant idea if you don’t have a clue how to throw it away yourself. We offer safe, eco-friendly office furniture removals so whatever you can’t find room for elsewhere gets taken from your property

With Junk King, you not only save time and effort but also make sure your old furniture is reused or recycled properly in an eco-friendly manner.

Construction Debris Removal

construction clean up

Construction contractors and project managers are responsible for managing every phase of their projects. This can lead to predictable results, but sometimes there are tasks that they don’t anticipate. Construction debris removal can often go overlooked in particular, but it’s important to work closely with your team to address the issue.

But debris removal is also something you need to consider not just in terms of costs, but also in terms of how it can affect the environment. Keeping both sides in mind will help keep your cleanup plan cost-effective.

A great solution is to simply outsource the job to a reputable, professional hauling company like Junk King Atlanta. Another benefit is that it saves you the time and effort of doing the job yourself.

Free Construction Debris Removal Guide

There are many benefits associated with outsourcing. For instance, convenience and peace of mind when it comes to knowing that your vendor will do the job right and is efficient. And the costs are typically less than if you were to carry out all these tasks in-house.

In addition to green junk removal services, Junk King Atlanta offers the following:

Property Management Cleanouts

People are constantly moving. As an example, the Census Bureau says that 13% of renters move every year. This is important information for property managers because these vacated properties need all their junk to be removed and they need to put effort into preparing the property for its next tenant.

Nobody likes to clean up someone else’s mess – it’s especially true if it’s an apartment, house, or office filled with junk. Before a janitorial company can come to clean the building, all the abandoned junk has to be gotten rid of.

We’ll help you make your property management much easier when you need to empty out your property in-between tenants. You can call us for Atlanta junk removal services to make the transition easy!

Foreclosure Cleanouts

Homes that have gone through foreclosure often leave behind old furniture and other things of value. These homes require certain preparations before they can be offered to buyers. Due to various reasons, some former homeowners neglect this process and leave the items in the foreclosed property.

Foreclosed homes often have abandoned furniture and leftover trash from when the previous owner left. When the lender only produces the keys to your property and leaves, it can be hard for real estate professionals to take care of this. Leave these tasks to a professional junk remover, call Junk King Atlanta!

As a leading North American business-to-business junk removal professionals company Junk King has experts who will gladly come and handle your entire property cleanout process. They’ll take care of any junk or debris from your attic to the basement. When you hire Junk King for your foreclosure cleanout, one big task drops off your to-do list and it’s a great step toward having your property ready to sell or rent.

Commercial Scrap Metal Pick Up

It can be hard to get rid of old and large items. It’s even harder for businesses who often throw away things that won’t fit in their bins. Such items usually come in the form of equipment that is completely useless.

This is especially true for commercial scrap metal.

Scrap metal is not something that most businesses are generally set up to recycle. It can be tricky to know how to start this process, let alone take it somewhere. Recycling scrap metal is more difficult and hazardous than recycling other items because of the fact that it contains dirty oil or chemically treated surfaces or materials like mercury switches.

The good news is that Junk King Atlanta can help you clean up your metal debris so there’s less of a need to worry about it. Plus, we donate to a local recycling facility which turns your scrap metal into raw materials for manufacturing and thus helps reduce the environmental impact.

We recycle more materials than any other junk clearing company, and our scrap metal recycling service is available for any need:

  • Iron, steel, copper, aluminum, and brass scrap items
  • Building beams, wire, and most other metal construction debris
  • Appliances, plumbing fixtures, and other office renovation debris
  • Most other unwanted metal junk

Storage Facility Cleanouts

It is an undeniable fact that in America on average, we have more personal belongings than citizens of any other nation. And because we need to have a place for all our stuff, storage unit rentals are a 40-billion dollar industry in America.

As many people know from watching long-running reality TV shows, storage facility managers often have to deal with old tenant’s junk. The task of cleaning it all up usually falls on them as well

One option is to stage an auction. However, not everything gets sold after an auction. This means that self-storage facility owners or their managers must get rid of any items that weren’t sold at the auction. The reality is that they need to be ready for anything.

The storage units that have been abandoned by tenants need to be taken care of. The manager will clear out their belongings and then put them back on the market. Junk King Atlanta is the perfect solution if you need green junk removal services in the Atlanta GA Area. We’re there for one simple price, with easy, convenient service so you can relax.

Large Trash Removal

Junk removal pickup

If your trash removal company isn’t cleaning up your business often enough, or there are certain types of bulk items they won’t pick up, you might want to consider another provider.

Employers could pay their employees to do a completely unrelated task, but those are not cost-effective. So that’s why our bulk trash removal service can help you out.

Junk King Atlanta provides a reliable green trash removal service that makes us your most affordable pick. Our teams are experienced with heavy trash removal. This means that they can do the job without ruining your facility. We do all the work for you – don’t have to take loads of items outside, plus we ensure that as much of your trash is recycled as possible.

Our team will call you 15 minutes before we arrive and provide a free estimate based on the estimate of the truck space needed. We also handle all your trash removal needs while we’re there, so make sure to leave everything where it is for an easier experience.

Event Waste Removal

Large outdoor and indoor events such as company picnics, concerts, community fairs and street markets can generate a lot of waste. Dumpsters are often an expensive solution. However, they can be effective on some occasions. Instead of renting a dumpster, you may find other simple solutions that are less costly and easier to manage

But the company is still responsible for getting rid of as much as they can

But if you’re not equipped and don’t have the manpower to take care of the work, then this is a big problem. The wisest course of action would be to hire a professional company who specializes in event waste removal.

Junk King is an expert in all aspects of event waste. We can offer you the service when and where you need it with a simple phone call. If you know your date in advance, we can book for you easily by text or online.

How It Works

As one of the leading Atlanta junk removal companies in Atlanta, Junk King works hard to keep things as easy as possible.

You might be intimidated if you’ve never hired a professional Junk Removal service before. We want our customers to feel comfortable and confident that we have their best interests at heart.

Aside from normal questions of what we can take away and how we store everything (which we answer on our FAQ page), there are often inquiries about the logistics of the process. If you have never used Junk King before or are browsing for your first time ever, please keep reading.

How the Junk King Process Works

Junk King Trash Pick up

One of the first things you will need to know about Junk King, is that we’re happy to take any and everything you need to get rid of, except for hazardous materials . For our residential customers, that goes for substances like Household Hazardous Waste.

The EPA defines household hazardous waste as anything that meets this criteria:

They are leftover household products that can catch fire, react, or explode under certain circumstances, or that are corrosive or toxic as household hazardous waste.

It’s not just household rubbish that can prove hazardous. Toxic products, such as paints, cleaners, oils, batteries and pesticides are also included in the list of things you need special disposal precautions for.

Junk King, along with other junk removal companies, are not legally able to pick-up and dispose of hazardous material. And for our commercial clients, these restrictions apply to industrial hazardous waste, as well.

The second thing you need to know about Junk King is that we have a long-standing and deep-rooted commitment to being “green” and eco-friendly. This means that you can rest assured that we will recycle or repurpose as much of all the junk materials we collect from your home.

Junk King was founded in 2005 as the first recycling-based junk removal operation in the nation.

Our team at Junk King Atlanta is passionate about what we do and we think you’ll be too after seeing how it operates. We call our operation the recycling hub and we’re excited to show you this innovative approach. As our trucks go out to serve customers throughout the day, our teams pack them in ways that allow them to unpack items efficiently at the Hub.

We want to make sure we offer the utmost in service while protecting the environment and helping you or your company’s sustainability.

Things To Know Before Renting a Dumpster

dumpster rental services

Renting a dumpster can be daunting. That’s why Junk King Atlanta made it so easy and affordable to get rid of junk. It’s not just the size that matters. We offer different sizes for any project, whether you’re looking for ten bags or ten thousand. Nevertheless, there are lots of factors that determine if a dumpster is the right fit for you. What kind of stuff do you have? Where can it be placed? How much time do you need it beforehand?

By renting a roll-off container, you can leave the disposal of large items to your own schedule. These companies are known to impose significant fines for people who go against the rules by disposing of large items in their rubbish-collection service.

When you rent a dumpster from us, we take care of removing items like appliances, mattresses, televisions and couches. We can even come out when it suits your schedule best. We try to make Atlanta junk removal as easy as possible for our customers because we know that they don’t have time to worry about emptying out old storage spaces. This way, they can focus on the other aspects of their lives.

Dumpster rental doesn’t have to be your only option for getting rid of unwanted materials. You can take care of it by yourself or hire a professional junk removal company to do the job for you.

Hiring an outside company to handle your waste disposal needs is one of the best ways to save time and energy while also keeping you safe. You don’t have to drive or reload waste containers, saving time and getting you home faster. Dump fees are included in one monthly fee, making it incredibly easy for you rather than worrying about wasting time or money by figuring

An Atlanta junk removal company can be a great option because they can do everything for you and save you time and trouble. Compared to the do-it-yourself option, this one is much more cost effective and allows you to focus on other work. Hiring a debris removal service sounds like the easiest option which could also be quite expensive. Aside from cost, it can be worth it to take time to find the right company for the job.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does your service work?

Once we schedule a free no-obligation estimate we will send a team of two employees to your site to assess the situation. At that time we look at the items we will provide you with a price based on volume. Once you agree to the price we will start removing the items until completed. After the items have been loaded into our branded junk king truck, we will sweep up the area and process the invoice via a mobile device.

What types of junk removal services do you offer?

Junk removal typically takes one of two forms. There is full-service junk removal, where you hire 2-3 people to come into your home or office, carry your discards outside, load it into a dumpster or truck, and then haul it away. This option is essentially like hiring movers, except your stuff goes away forever instead of going to your new address.

There is also self-service junk removal, which is like the renovation/contractor example mentioned above. With self-service junk removal, the junk company drops a dumpster off at your property, and you fill it yourself. Once the bin is full, the junk removal comes back to load your dumpster onto a truck and drive it away.

Are estimates free?

We offer free estimates as a part of our service. Our Big Red trucks show up on time at your location and provide you with a free written estimate. If you’re happy with the estimate, in most cases we will haul our items right then and there. At Junk King we want your business, so no job is too big or too small.

Is there anything you don’t take?

Junk King will pick up and remove almost any type of unwanted junk except hazardous materials. If you need to dispose of these items, you should contact your local waste management provider or municipal agencies for guidance.

Certain household items are considered hazardous waste and typically fall into one of four categories:

  • Corrosive
  • Explosive
  • Flammable
  • Poisonous

Items that fall into these categories should be labeled or marked accordingly. Cleaning products, motor oil and most other automotive fluids, pesticides, herbicides, varnishes, and paints are all considered hazardous waste and should never be placed in trash bins or dumpsters.

What items do you recycle?

A shorter list might be the items we can’t recycle! The truth is that most everything that gets tossed out or disposed of can be reused, repurposed, or recycled. And we strive to recycle up to 60 percent or more of everything we pick up from our customers.

Will it cost me more for heavy junk items?

Fair and transparent pricing is a hallmark of Junk King. We offer a low minimum charge, and unlike our competitors, you only pay for the space you use in our trucks – with no hidden charges. This means that if your junk takes up half a truck load you pay the same whether it’s a load of old clothes and bedding, or concrete rubble and masonry.

Our pricing model is the same for our self-service MINI Dumpster rentals, as well. At Junk King, whether you choose our full or self-service junk removal options, you pay only for the space you use.

What is full service junk hauling?

Junk removal is an on-demand service to have just about any kind of trash removed from your home or business. We haul large items like furniture and appliances, do full house cleanouts, offer light demolition in many markets, and pick up all kinds of trash and construction debris from real estate cleanouts. Pretty much everything and anything (except hazardous waste) can be handled by Junk King.

How does the Junk King dumpster service work?

The Junk King Self-service dumpster rental is an on-demand debris box service to remove just about any kind of item from your home or business. You simply call Junk King and we drop off the Junk King dumpster (the ultimate no contact junk removal service), a 12 cubic yard, driveway friendly debris box. You fill the Junk King dumpster on your own timetable, and we pick it up 3 days later. The dumpster can handle large items like furniture and appliances, all kinds of trash and construction debris from real estate cleanouts to kitchen and bathroom remodelings. Pretty much everything and anything (except hazardous waste) can be handled by the Junk King dumpster. The Junk King Dumpster is a reasonably sized, driveway-friendly box that comes with the great customer service you expect from Junk King!

What size dumpsters does Junk King have?

The Junk King Dumpster is a 12 cubic yard, driveway friendly, debris box. To put the Junk King Dumpster in perspective, it takes up the space of one car in a 2-car driveway!

Does your company do demolition?

We do light demolition such as small sheds or fences but do not demolish anything that is connected to your building structure.
