Junk Removal Gwinnett
Fast, eco-friendly junk removal in Gwinnett
Meet the Owner of Junk King Gwinnett
Harry Van Buren is the owner of multiple Junk King locations in Atlanta and its surrounding suburbs. He opened his first Junk King location in Atlanta in 2012, a second location in Southern Atlanta four years later in 2016, and most recently the Gwinnett County location in suburban Atlanta.
Harry started Junk King Atlanta back in 2012 when it was only him, his two sons, and a truck. Since that time Harry has expanded to 10 Junk King trucks, 22 full-time employees, and three Junk King locations in Georgia.
Looking back on his journey with Junk King, Harry recalls that around his third year with the franchise he made a conscious decision to expand further. Harry remembers telling his son, Jimmy, who handles general management at the Junk King Gwinnett location, that, “We could continue to stay at this level or really scale up.” After considering “there was a real future in eco-friendly junk removal,” Harry and Jimmy decided to scale up with Junk King!
But what motivated Harry to get started with Junk King in the first place? Coming out of the manufacturing sector, Harry noticed from his time there that “a lot of stuff being thrown away probably could have been recycled, reused, or repurposed.” Harry was looking for a business that was sustainable and had a proven business model, and he found that with Junk King!
“Part of our business model at Junk King is trying to recycle, repurpose, or donate 70 percent of what we collect, whether that’s household furniture or construction debris,” says Harry. “A lot of this stuff is definitely reusable,” Harry adds. In fact, the mission at Junk King Gwinnett lately has been to attempt to recycle, repurpose, or donate up to 99 percent of all junk!
Junk King Gwinnett is proud to serve the following areas:
- Avondale Estates
- Flowery Branch
- Stone Mountain
Junk King is North America’s number-one rated junk removal company, and as America’s ‘greenest’ junk removal service there’s an effort to recycle wherever possible.

In fact, Junk King takes about every kind of residential and commercial waste, except for hazardous waste.
“Junk removal is essential and a service that really benefits society,” Harry says when reflecting on the impact of eco-friendly junk removal. It is all about recycling, reusing, and donating more at Junk King.

Electronics Removal in Gwinnett
Electronic waste (e-waste) can be particularly tricky to deal with. While cell phones, computers, tablets, and televisions are usually replaced every few years, the leftover electronic waste shouldn’t simply be dumped into landfills.
“We make a major push to recycle electronics to conserve resources and keep dangerous components out of landfills,” says the owner of Junk King Gwinnett, Harry Van Buren. Electronics are a bit of a double-edged sword as they contain harmful materials like lead and cadmium but valuable resources like copper, gold, silver, and palladium as well.

Junk King takes ‘organic’ yard waste – i.e., biological waste, or the kind that can be composted – and ‘inorganic’ yard waste – i.e., windows, fencing, and shingles that can’t be composted but can frequently be recycled.
