Meet the Owner
When Adam Dillaplain, co-owner of Junk King Katy, first came across the business opportunity, he was immediately reminded of how often he could have made use of these types of services in his previous work.
It was in large part due to that revelation that he was drawn to Junk King and now, as the co-owner of Junk King Katy, he and his crew deliver this very service to businesses and other organizations, as well as residential customers throughout the greater Katy, Texas region.
Junk King Katy is well-known out here west of Houston for always giving professional and award-winning customer service, along with providing eco-friendly recycling. For example, some items Junk King Katy can remove range from refrigerators to bulk B2B trash to old chicken coops and more.

Residential Junk Removal
Items We Take – Residential Items
If you own a home, rent a house or condominium, or live in an apartment, you most likely have to get rid of some junk once in a while. That can be a challenge.
And this is true for most homeowners and renters all over the Katy area, regardless of whether you live in a gated community or on a sprawling ranch. But we’re not talking about a few bags of trash or boxes of old magazines that have piled up on the back porch. We’re talking about junk – big junk, lots of junk, or hard to move junk. And the “garbage guys” who pick up your household trash each week aren’t going to do that for you.
When you have large quantities of unwanted items you need to dispose of or excessively large, bulky junk items, these need to be hauled away separately for proper disposal.
But how can folks do that?
Here’s good news from the team at Junk King Katy: We’re always ready to take just about every type of residential junk item you might have – and that includes all that junk you need to get rid of right now!
We’ll come to your home and haul away old furniture, large toys, and, yes, those boxes of old magazines, along with most other household items. In fact, we take just about everything and anything you need to dispose of (except for hazardous waste.)
We are passionate about junk removal, eco-friendly junk disposal, and serving our customers. Co-owner Adam Dillaplain shared one his favorite aspects of the business,
So, what kinds of things do we help you get rid of? Here’s a brief overview of some of our residential junk removal services.
It can be difficult to get rid of old furniture, as when you’re relocating or replacing pieces, for example. That’s because most household furniture pieces are heavy, bulky, and generally just plain hard to move.
And if you finally do get them out of the house, you still must figure out what to do with them.
But with Junk King Katy hauling off your old furniture for you, not only do you free yourself from the hard work, you’ll also be helping the environment since we routinely recycle old furniture.
Here are some of the types of old or unwanted furniture we can pick up from you:
No one wants to be stuck trying to move a giant credenza, hutch, or china cabinet out of their house. And that massive sofa you bought in the late 90s, that was so elegant then, is now just a worn out, thousand-pound beast? Forget it!
Which is why Junk King Katy specializes in old furniture removal and hauling.
Television Disposal & Recycling
Of course, everything is bigger in Texas. And that includes TVs.
In fact, you might have recently upgraded to a new – and bigger – flat screen TV. And the statistics tell us that thousands of folks throughout the Greater Katy Area did, as well. Which means that there are potentially tens of thousands of “old” TVs out there that need to be gotten rid of all the time – and especially after Christmas.
But what’s the best way to dispose of old televisions that either don’t work or no one wants?
Well, tossing them in the household trash is obviously out of the question. But an easy option is to call Junk King Katy for your old television disposal and recycling. We can even pick up and haul away your old CRT computer monitors and CRT televisions! In fact, we take any and all electronic waste, or e-waste, along with those huge flat screen units.
Best of all, Junk King Katy provides a safe and environmentally friendly television disposal and recycling services that also make the entire process easy for you.
Yard Waste Removal
Cleaning up yard waste often includes much more than just picking up grass clippings and dead leaves. It can also mean having to get rid of all the other things they trimmed, cut, pruned, trimmed, or dug up and removed from your yard or other outdoor property.
In addition, you might find yourself burdened with other debris, such as leftover lumber from old sheds or other structures, broken-down gardening equipment, old fencing, play sets that the kids outgrew, and other outdoor items.
Cleaning up your outdoor living space or fields, or carrying out major landscaping makeovers can be big projects and result in big piles of yard waste and other debris. These are typically far more than your residential recycling bin can manage.
Yard waste removal is a seasonal chore in many locales, but in and around Katy and southeast Texas, not so much. But we do get rain. And storms. So, cleaning up after a winter of general neglect or getting rid of things that have been left outdoors all season can result in a large amount of junk and debris.
But taking all this yard waste to a landfill can be a major chore in Harris, Fort Bend, and Waller counties. Landfills are far and few between for the most part, the lines are long, and it’s just plain hot and humid much of the time, as well.
Not only does this entail a great deal of work and time on your part, but you need a suitable vehicle for the job. Because believe it or not, not everyone in Texas owns a pickup truck!
Household appliances get old, they eventually break down, and must be repaired or replaced. And if you’re replacing them, that means they have to be removed from your home and disposed of, as well. Not a task for the faint of heart or weak of body.
The good news is that Junk King Katy can take care of it for you!
Here’s a some of the types of appliances can we remove for you:
- Air Conditioners
- Dishwashers/Trash Compactors
- Water Heaters
- Washing Machines/Dryers
While you might think it will be easier and cheaper to simply haul the old unit off to a landfill, but there’s a far better and cost-effective solution.
At Junk King, we make it our mission to recycle as much of the junk we pick up as possible. Did you know that most large junk items that you could dispose of in a landfill can actually be recycled instead?
That’s right! Your old household appliances, for example, are almost all made of recyclable materials like steel, aluminum, glass, and plastics. Which means that all your old appliances can be recycled.
And when you call Junk King Katy, we make sure that your old appliances get recycled – and that includes refrigerators, ovens, and even air conditioning units!
In addition to appliance removal, we offer additional residential junk removal services such as:
- Hot Tub Disposal
- E-Waste Disposal
- Bulk Trash Removal
- Mattress Disposal
- Garbage Removal
- House Cleanouts
Commercial Junk Removal
Commercial Items – What We Take
Businesses of all types generate debris and junk. And they all need to dispose of it, as well.
Statistically speaking, in fact, businesses and other commercial organizations generate more solid waste and junk than homes. And, like those residential customers, businesses need to have junk removal, too.
For business owners and managers responsible for taking care of junk removal, the task can often be frustrating. Smaller businesses may find that they have far more junk and debris to get rid of than they can fit into their available trash or recycling dumpsters.
In addition, while their waste management company can usually schedule special “bulky item” pickup services, that often means added fees as well as being limited to a set schedule with limited availability.
Not exactly the kind of “Just in Time” service most businesses would prefer to have for this type of project!
The sobering truth when it comes to commercial junk disposal is that businesses have two options for disposing of large waste materials, debris, or junk:
- They can haul it themselves
- They can hire a firm to do it
While hauling it yourself may sound like a simpler and more cost-effective option, it is usually not the case. Although you might avoid the cost of hiring a junk removal firm, you’re using your employee’s time to do the job, which is costing you double.
Why is that?
The time that it takes for loading, hauling, and dumping your company junk is time not spent doing the work your employees are hired to do. So, every trip to the local landfill or waste transfer station means a very real loss of productivity. And means it costs you money.
And we haven’t even mentioned the need for suitable vehicles for loading and hauling, as well as added fuel costs and dumping fees. Plus, there are possible liability issues, and the list goes on from there.
This is why Junk King Katy specializes in offering professional and affordable commercial junk removal services.
In the greater Katy, Texas region, commercial junk removal can entail a wide variety of things.
Co-owner Adam Dillaplain notes that,
“There’s a lot of distribution warehouses, fulfillment centers, and logistics companies. So, we do pickups for broken equipment, excess packing material crates, and so on. There’s a lot of manufacturing as well. We pick up much of the same items for them, but also, we pick up fixtures, machinery, and equipment that they’re retiring. Then you’ve also got a lot of hybrid office space where you’ve got offices mixed with warehouse and fulfillment center, as well.”
Here is an overview of some of the commercial junk removal services we provide:
Office Furniture Removal
If your old office furniture is too damaged to sell or donate, you’ll likely need to dispose of it all. However, hauling it all out of your facility with your own staff can be far more work than most businesses want to take on. Not to mention that loss of productivity while your employees are doing the work of junk haulers!
Instead, business owners and managers can turn to an efficient and cost-effective furniture removal team such as Junk King Katy. Our team can come in and quickly and easily do all the heavy lifting, plus, we then haul it all away for you!
We offer efficient, affordable, and eco-friendly office furniture removal so you don’t need to worry about getting rid of your old furniture items yourself.
In fact, from a business perspective, outsourcing Junk King Katy to pick up your old office furniture is a smart choice since there’s no easy way to do it yourself.
And, of course, the best part is that we also ensure that your old office furniture pieces are either donated when possible, or sent to our recycling facility so that your old furniture is processed in an environmentally responsible way.
Construction Debris Removal
Whether you’re talking about small, residential remodeling projects, new subdivisions, or building brand new shopping centers, contractors and project managers know that they must proactively manage every phase of their projects.
And this means construction debris removal, as well.
Like most other commercial junk removal needs, the best option for a professional solution is to outsource the job to a reputable, professional hauling company like Junk King Katy. And, like other commercial junk removal tasks, the cost benefits will far outweigh those of doing it yourself.
This includes avoiding the loss of production because you’re not having to take crew members off the job to spend their time cleaning and removing junk and construction debris. In fact, the actual cost of our construction debris removal services is typically far less than the costs of using your own crew.
No one enjoys foreclosures or evictions. At Junk King Katy, we understand that. We also understand the pressing need for fast, efficient, and cost-effective cleanouts.
It’s a fact that in many of these situations, former occupants often leave their foreclosed home in less-than-sterling condition. In fact, the properties are rarely completely empty when they are vacated.
Consequently, foreclosed residential and commercial properties often require junk left by the previous homeowners to be cleared out and properly disposed of. Unfortunately, this task often falls on the property manager or real estate professional overseeing the transaction.
Typically, foreclosed and vacated properties have piles of trash, abandoned old furniture, and various other types of debris that the former tenants or homeowners failed to take with them. The truth is, no property manager, real estate agent, or bank representative wants to tackle that job.
The good news is that Junk King Katy can take care of it for you!
As the leading commercial junk removal service in North America, Junk King provides expert real estate junk removal services to do the cleanout process for you. We can be your best choice when dealing with a foreclosure cleanout.
Call Junk King for foreclosure cleanouts and quickly get your property ready for the market so it can be sold or rented.
Commercial Scrap Metal Pick Up
While a business might want to recycle junk metal, that can be difficult if they don’t know how to go about it or where to take it, especially if this a task they rarely, if ever, have to take care of. Large quantities of mostly metal junk or debris, or excessively large and bulky scrap materials or equipment, require trained personnel and large vehicles.
In other words, removing, hauling, and recycling scrap metal is a much more challenging task than getting rid of waste cardboard and packaging materials!
But the good news is that this is not a problem when you have Junk King Katy come and pick up and remove your scrap metal debris and materials for you. Not only do we do all the pickup and hauling, but we also make sure it all gets to local recycling facilities so that your metal debris can be made into new materials for manufacturing.
In fact, Junk King Katy recycles more junk material than other local junk removal companies and our scrap pick up services are available whenever your business needs commercial scrap metal removal. We take items to our own processing facility where we breakdown and recycle up to 99% of what we pick up!
Storage Facility Cleanouts
We all are familiar with the ancient proverb, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.”
And, based on the popularity of the several storage locker reality TV programs, many people want to believe that this self-storage units all hold untold treasures and goods worth tens of thousands of dollars.
However, as most storage facility managers will tell you, they do find varying amounts of junk left behind by former renters, whether through abandonment or for failure to clear them out after not paying their rent. But what these managers usually find is, well, just junk.
Unfortunately, the task of getting rid of it all usually becomes their job, as well.
While there may be an auction, the property manager must still dispose of any items that do not get sold. But, more often than not, storage facility owners and managers usually just clear out the abandoned units and dispose of the left behind junk.
And, as one person on a now-famous news story once said, “Ain’t nobody got time for that!”
Although storage facility managers have to deal with cleaning out abandoned units so they can make them available to rent, it doesn’t have to be that way.
That’s because Junk King Katy can quickly and easily take care of your storage facility junk cleanouts. Best of all, our crew cleans up after they pick up the mess, and we also haul it away for you with just one simple price. And we make everything easy and stress-free as possible for you, as well.

Self-service junk removal is, as the name implies, a junk removal process that allows you to load your own junk into one of our user-friendly MINI Dumpster rentals.

Frequently Asked Questions
Are there any junk items you don’t take?
Junk King will pick up and remove almost any type of unwanted junk except hazardous waste materials. Certain household items are considered hazardous waste and typically fall into one of four categories:
For example, many leftover household cleaning products, motor oil and most other automotive fluids, pesticides, herbicides, varnishes, and liquid paints are all considered hazardous waste and should never be placed in trash bins or dumpsters. However, we can accept treated paint that is no longer liquid.
When you need to dispose of these items, you should contact your local waste management provider or municipal agencies for guidance.
What kinds of junk can you recycle?
The remarkable thing is that almost every item that we call “junk” and is tossed out or disposed of can be reused, repurposed, or recycled. And we strive to recycle 90 percent or more of everything we pick up from our customers.
Recyclable junk items include:
- Mattresses and Box Springs
- Hot Tubs
- Refrigerators and Freezers
- Old Wood and Lumber
- Storage Sheds
- Household Appliances
- Televisions and Monitors
- And much, much more…
Does it cost more for heavy junk items?
No, because we never charge by weight, only by volume. This is all part of our fair and transparent pricing policy, which is a hallmark of Junk King.
Unlike most of our competitors, you only pay for the space your junk takes up in our trucks. 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 heavy concrete rubble and masonry.
And this pricing model is the basis for our self-service Dumpster rentals, as well. Which means that, with Junk King, whether you choose our full or self-service junk removal options, you pay only for the space you use with no hidden fees and low minimum charge.
How does your junk removal work?
Junk removal typically takes one of two forms. We offer full-service junk removal, where we come into your home or workplace, carry your discards outside, load it all into a truck, and then haul it away. This option is essentially like hiring movers, except your stuff goes away forever instead of being delivered to your new address!
There is also our self-service junk removal, which is when we deliver a conveniently sized dumpster off at your property, and you fill it yourself. Once the bin is full, our junk removal team comes back to load your dumpster onto a truck and drive it away.
