At most universities, football games are some of the biggest events of the year, a rallying event for the student community to come together and find common ground in their love of the game and the tailgate that precedes it. However, there’s often a byproduct of the celebration: garbage.
1. Junk King, a company that focuses on recycling, reusing, and repurposing clutter, made a stop in Grand Rapids on Tuesday.
While in West Michigan Junk King helped clients of “Clean Slate By Kate,” a licensed social worker who helps hoarders start fresh.
Grand Rapids was just one of the stops on their six week trip which will cover 15 cities, from San Francisco to New York. Michigan was the eighth stop on the trip, with their next stop in Cincinnati. The trip will eventually end in the nation’s capital.
GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. – I was very excited for this Knee Deep segment. I met Joe and Kevin, co-owners of Junk King Grand Rapids, when they were in our studio doing a segment with My West Michigan. I was immediately comfortable with the guys, they’re really down to earth and easy to talk to. We exchanged information and I knew I wanted to do a story with them. Why? Well…. because they’re job seemed so fun and they clearly love what they do.
Kevin Schultz and Joe Howard, owners of Junk King in Grand Rapids, stopped by to talk with us about some of the “hot items” that local charities are in high need of this time of year. Junk King provides professional junk removal services to homeowners and businesses throughout the area.
