Meet the Owners – Jack Brendamour and Judy McCreary
Jack Brendamour and Judy McCreary are owners of Junk King Louisville, providing professional junk removal services to households and businesses. Jack and Judy have a passion for the environment and supporting local nonprofits perfectly aligning with Junk King’s philosophy.
“What’s most important is that we’re donating items collected from yards, homes and businesses and cutting down on waste by giving them a second life. Everything about the Junk King philosophy is to help our customers, employees and local community,” said Jack.
Customers need a consistent hauling solution, and Junk King is there to do the job. It’s so easy that they don’t even have to lift a finger – just point to what they’d like removed and Junk King’s local junk removal team handles the rest. What especially matters to Jack and Judy is helping seniors and their families get through a difficult transition point in life when downsizing. Junk King can help seniors cut down on items accumulated over a lifetime.
“It’s special to see how much of a positive impact we can have on our local area with great, eco-friendly junk removal. Not only do we help people declutter, but we’re also doing it with the greenest methods possible,” added Judy. In fact, Jack and Judy operate their own recycling centers in each city they are located in. This allows them to sort and process any unwanted materials more efficiently.
Jack and Judy are also the owners of Junk King Cincinnati, originally founded in 2011 by Judy’s husband, Pete McCreary, who was a man of integrity and led a mentorship centered culture. Pete would say, “I love the business of helping others declutter responsibly.” The company continues to keep Pete’s core values alive and build upon his integrity driven vision. He would always do what was best for the greater good which Jack, Judy and the rest of the Junk King Louisville team continues to do and prides themselves on.

Residential Junk Removal
Items We Take – Residential Items
Homeowners and renters all have junk to get rid of every once in a while, and it can be a challenging chore.
And this is true for folks all over the Louisville area who have unwanted items they need to dispose of. But we’re not talking about trash or old magazines that have piled up in the den. Those items can usually be placed in regular trash or recycling bins.
We mean junk. That would be large junk, piles of junk, or hard-to-move junk.
But how can folks get rid of that?
Not to worry! The professionals at Junk King Louisville are ready to take just about every type of residential junk item you might have, including all the junk you need to get rid of right now!
We come to your home and haul away old furniture, large toys, boxes of old magazines, newspapers, and 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 and eco-friendly junk disposal. As co-owner Jack Brendamour put it,
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.
Television Disposal & Recycling
Did you get a new flat screen TV for Christmas? So did millions of other Americans. And that means that there are potentially millions of “old” TVs screens out there that need to be gotten rid of. But what’s the best way to dispose of televisions that either don’t work or no one wants?
One easy option is to call Junk King Louisville for your old television disposal and recycling. And we can pick up and haul off those old computer monitors and old CRT televisions, as well as the large flat screen units. Junk King provides safe and environmentally friendly television disposal service to make the whole process easy for you.
It can be difficult to get rid of old furniture, like when you’re moving or replacing pieces, for example. That’s because most furniture pieces are heavy, bulky, and generally hard to move. And when you finally get them out of the house you still must figure out what to do with them.
But with Junk King Louisville hauling off your old furniture for you, not only do you free yourself from the hard work, you’ll also be helping the environment as we recycle your old furniture pieces.
Here are some of the types of old or unwanted furniture we can pick up from you:
Yard Waste Removal
Cleaning up yard waste can often mean far more than just removing grass clippings and leaves. It can also mean hauling away everything else you’ve cut, pruned, trimmed, or dug up out of your yard. Along with that, there can be other debris such as leftover lumber, broken-down gardening equipment, old fencing, and other items.
Outdoor cleanups or landscaping makeovers can become big projects and you can pile up far more yard waste and debris than your residential recycling bin can manage.
Yard waste removal can be a seasonal chore, as well, such as cleaning up after a winter of general neglect or getting rid of things that have been left outdoors all summer. But taking all this yard waste to a landfill can take time and a great deal of work. Not to mention that you need a suitable vehicle for the job.
Appliances get old, break down, and must be replaced. And that means they must be removed and disposed of, as well. The good news is that Junk King can handle that for you!
Here’s a short list of the types of appliances can we remove for you:
- Air Conditioners
- Dishwashers/Trash Compactors
- Water Heaters
- Washing Machines/Dryers
Have you ever found yourself wondering how to get rid of an old appliance? If so, you were likely planning a trip to the landfill. But did you know that most large junk items that you might dispose of in a landfill can be recycled?
Your old household appliances, for example, are almost all made of recyclable materials like steel, aluminum, glass, and plastics, which means that they can be recycled. And when you call Junk King Louisville, we make sure that as much junk as possible is recycled – and that includes appliances!
Recycling is much more than an occasional function at Junk King Louisville. We recycle and reuse as much of everything we pick up every day. It is at the heart of our corporate mission, and we are passionately serious about being a green company.
And it also provides a world of opportunities to do good as world citizens.
Typhoon Phanfone, known locally as Typhoon Ursula, slammed into Eastern Samar province, Philippines on Christmas Eve 2019. Junk King Louisville’s owners had just shipped some drills and hand tools to a village there in the Philippines immediately prior to that event.
Junk King received a video about two weeks after the typhoon had hit them. It was from this village and the message in the video was, “Thank you so much. Your hand tools arrived hours before the high typhoon took our entire water filtration system out. And if we didn’t have your tools to drill holes through buckets and make these new filtration systems, our whole town wouldn’t have had clean water.”
As co-owner Jack Brendamour puts it,
“It’s our responsibility as individuals, as humans, to hand this earth down to our children as best we can. And I can tell you that any company that’s not actively and outwardly going green is not going to be the best in their industry at what they do.”
In addition to all these services, 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
What We Take – Commercial Items
Businesses need to get rid of junk, too.
In fact, one might say that commercial enterprises generate far more junk each year than residential homeowners or renters. And these enterprises, nonprofit and for profit, need junk removal services as well.
And, if you are a business owner or a manager tasked with junk removal, you understand the frustration. Oftentimes, the junk you need to get rid of is far more than what you can fit into the trash or recycling dumpsters you have.
And, while your waste management provider can usually arrange for a special “bulk item” pick up, this service usually comes with additional fees. And you often must make an appointment for the pick up.
This might work for two or three times a year, but if you require commercial junk removal much more frequently, this arrangement isn’t practical.
In other words, you need to find another option.
And, for most commercial junk disposal, there are just two options for getting rid of large junk or debris:
- You do it yourself, or
- You hire someone to do it.
And the fact is that “doing it yourself” may not even save you money. Even though you’re not paying a vendor to do the work, you’re taking employee’s time to do the job and, as all owners and managers know, time is money.
In fact, your real cost is doubled because all that time spent loading, hauling, and dumping your company’s junk is time taken away from doing the actual work your employees are paid to do. In other words, every “dump run” means a loss of productivity, which costs the company money.
The good news is that Junk King Louisville has you covered because we specialize in providing efficient and cost-effective commercial junk removal services.
Co-owner Jack Brendamour points out that,
“We’re very quick at this point. If someone needs us within an hour, anywhere in the city – a property management company or whatever the situation may be – we can get somewhere very quickly with the fleet that we have.”
And here are some of the commercial junk removal services that we provide:
Commercial Equipment Removal
Every business decision involves expenditures that need to be carefully considered. And old equipment removal is no exception since hauling unwanted equipment will involve some costs.
Some larger firms may have the resources to manage this task themselves. But the size or volume of most commercial equipment makes hauling and removing it a challenge for many smaller businesses.
Most commercial equipment is large, unwieldy, and heavy, which is why your best option is to outsource the work to a professional firm like Junk King Louisville.
Office Furniture Removal
Oftentimes, old office furniture is too damaged to sell or donate. In those situations, you may decide to dispose of it all. But hauling it all out of your facility can be far more work than most businesses want to take on.
A professional team from Junk King Louisville can quickly and easily do all the heavy lifting and hauling for you. We offer efficient, affordable, and eco-friendly office furniture removal so you don’t need to worry about disposing of your old furniture items.
The best part is that we also ensure that old furniture items are donated when possible or sent to a recycling facility so that your old furniture is disposed of in an environmentally responsible way.
Construction Debris Removal
Construction contractors and project managers must proactively manage every phase of a project. And construction debris removal should be managed and planned for, as well.
A professional solution is to outsource the job to a reputable, professional hauling company like Junk King Louisville. And, like other commercial junk or debris removal tasks, the benefits of this approach will far outweigh those of doing it yourself.
This includes not having to take crew members off the job to spend their time cleaning and hauling junk and construction debris. And the cost is typically far less than using your own crew engaged in debris removal while having to take them off the job to do that task.
Property Management Cleanouts
Property management often involves getting vacant properties rented or leased again. And often this means that vacated properties must have any junk removed and the property cleaned before it can be rented again.
Unfortunately, not every former tenant leaves a commercial space clean and empty. Cleaning out empty properties, whether it’s commercial buildings, office spaces, or even rental houses and condos, can be difficult.
Fortunately, Junk King Louisville can make this far easier with our quick and affordable property management cleanout service. Let Junk King be your partner for cleaning out commercial properties in-between tenants.
Storage Facility Cleanouts
Self-storage facility managers often end up with large amounts of junk left behind by old tenants. Unfortunately, the task of getting rid of it all usually falls on them, as well.
While there may be an auction, the property manager must still dispose of any items that did not sell. Quite often, storage facility owners and managers must deal with abandoned junk.
Although the storage facility manager is left with clearing out abandoned units to put them back on the market, it doesn’t have to be that way. Junk King Louisville can quickly and easily take care of storage facility cleanouts. Best of all, we haul it away for one simple price, while making everything easy and stress-free for you
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. In fact, recycling scrap metal is a much more challenging task than recycling common commercial trash.
That’s not a problem when Junk King Louisville picks up and removes your scrap metal for you. We take it to local recycling facilities so that your metal debris can be made into new materials for manufacturing.
In fact, Junk King recycles more junk material than other junk removal companies and our scrap pick up services are any need.
Sometimes in foreclosure situations, the prior occupants feel little need to leave their foreclosed home completely empty when they leave. As a result, foreclosed residential properties must be cleaned out. And this usually is the responsibility of the real estate professional.
Unfortunately, foreclosed properties are often left with trash, abandoned furniture, and other debris that the previous homeowners didn’t take with them. The good news is that Junk King Louisville really can be your best choice when taking on a foreclosure cleanout.
As the leading commercial junk removal service in North America, Junk King provides expert real estate junk removal services to take care of the cleanout process for you.
How It Works
Working with Junk King is easy. And we work hard to keep it that way.
Want to know how much it’s going to cost? Before you decide to make an appointment with us, we encourage you to get a free, no-obligation estimate.
- You can call and let us know what you need disposed of or recycled and we can provide you with an estimate over the phone.
- In addition, you can obtain an estimate by texting us a photo of your items and we will text you back an estimate.
- We also have a great online Pricing Estimator that you can use for full service junk hauling.
- Or you can simply book online! Once our team arrives, you can get an on-site, no obligation pricing estimate.
Ready to make an appointment? We’ve made that easy, too!
Once you have an estimate simply pick a date and a two-hour window. Our professional and courteous team will call you 15 minutes before showing up at your home or workplace. Once we arrive you simply point, and we’ll quickly and efficiently take your junk.
Co-owner Jack Brendamour explains that,
“We come out with two people in a truck and we’re about 20 percent cheaper than our competitors. Most of the time a person will hire us the moment we give them the estimate, so we’re prepared to do it probably nine out of 10 times once someone hears our estimate. We do all the work, and we load it right.”
At Junk King Louisville, both residential and commercial junk removal typically takes one of two forms:
- Our full-service junk removal provides you with a team of two uniformed and courteous professional junk removal experts who come to your home or office. Once on site, they carry your junk items outside, load them into one of our trucks, and then haul it all away.
- In addition, we offer self-service junk removal. We can drop off one of our unique MINI Dumpster rentals to your home or place of business. You can fill the easy-to-access dumpster yourself over a period of a few days. And then our team comes back to load your dumpster onto our truck and remove it.

Frequently Asked Questions
How does your junk removal work?
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 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 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. 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 truth is that almost every type of junk item 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.
Recyclable junk items include:
- Hot Tubs
- Old wood and lumber
- Televisions and Monitors
And much, much more…
Does it cost more for heavy junk items?
Fair and transparent pricing 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 concrete rubble and masonry.
Our pricing model is the same for our self-service 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 with no hidden fees and low minimum charge.
