Meet the King of Junk Removal in New Orleans
Miller Gunn, the owner of Junk King New Orleans, was inspired to open up his own business for a few interrelated reasons. The idea of providing a much-needed service to New Orleans and interacting with customers on a daily basis were definitely initial motivators. Miller also joined Junk King because of a shared passion for environmental conservation.
“We obviously try to keep as much out of the landfill as possible,” explains Miller. “That means that we’re frequently working with metal recyclers and trying our best to keep appliances out of the landfill.” Items like old bikes, ladders, and tools are best repurposed, recycled, or donated by Junk King New Orleans. “That’s all stuff that’s potentially under the recycling umbrella,” according to the owner of Junk King New Orleans, Miller Gunn.
Giving back to the community of New Orleans, sometimes in quite literal terms, is important to Miller and his crew. “If we clean out a shed and there are, for example, kayaks, furniture, couches, chairs, and chairs that are still usable, then we will generally try to get it to somebody who can use it or potentially donate the items.”
Miller summed it all up by saying: “Junk King was a great fit for me to get involved in New Orleans, offer a service that is desperately needed, and employ people here locally.” Serving the entire area of Lake Pontchartrain from New Orleans to Hammond, to Covington, to Slidell, Miller Gunn and Junk King New Orleans is eager to protect the environment and keep harmful materials (e.g., batteries and mattresses) away from landfills.
The Greenest Junk Hauling in New Orleans and Surrounding Area
Miller Gunn has tried to leverage his background in sales to his new career with Junk King, and most customers think he’s done pretty well at that! “We put a lot of emphasis on customer service and making sure our clients are happy.” Miller has had many careers over the years, however, including working in construction and working with moving companies: “I’ve always liked manual labor jobs, and that’s what I did growing up. I was always kind of drawn to that line of work. There are very tangible results to it.”
Fresh air, exercising, and helping people in tangible ways were all things that resonated with Miller when he explored multiple business opportunities before deciding that Junk King was the ideal fit for him and his family. Although Miller says that the job involved a steep learning curve, he thinks now that he and his crew have found a system that definitely works: “I think we’re doing pretty well.” And customers agree since Junk King New Orleans has a 4.8/5 star rating based on customer reviews.
Miller Gunn’s love for the outdoors fuels his desire to help maintain the gorgeous surroundings by donating, recycling, and repurposing up to 60% of every junk haul. In his spare time, you can find him hiking with his wife and kids, or rooting for his favorite local sports teams, the New Orleans Saints and New Orleans Pelicans! Over the lifetime of his business Gunn looks forward to building strong connections with local businesses and networking groups to ensure that everyone has the chance to experience a top-rated junk removal service.
Residential Junk Removal in New Orleans
Junk King is a full-service junk removal that can help homeowners and renters declutter by hauling away old furniture, appliances, electronics, yard waste, and much more. At Junk King your satisfaction is guaranteed and you will be provided with a written estimate guaranteed to be lower than valid competitor’s offers.

Miller Gunn and his crew at Junk King New Orleans recycle up to 60% of every residential junk haul and every measure is taken to keep harmful materials out of landfills.
While it is certainly true that many homeowners, renters, and movers can feel overwhelmed with an entire estate cleanout or decluttering, say, a garage or attic, these projects can actually be seen as more of an opportunity than an insurmountable challenge. Junk King has done this all before and takes almost every conceivable kind of residential junk – virtually everything, that is, except for hazardous waste!
Junk King owner, Miller Gunn, and his experienced crew recycle up to 60% of every residential junk haul:
“We try our best not to dump anything unnecessarily. Landfills aren’t sustainable, and they’re filling up surprisingly quickly. Much of the residential junk that we take is actually still fine and perfectly usable, and there are people out there who could definitely use it in their lives.”
Miller also says that, “we donate a lot of stuff. My Junk King warehouse is down the street from a Habitat for Humanity location, and they have something similar to a thrift shop where they have furniture, tools, and other items that can find a second home.” For Miller Gunn it is all about keeping New Orleans, ‘The Big Easy,’ beautiful and helping out the community.
Junk King is there for you whether you are downsizing or you have simply replaced old furniture with new furniture.

Junk King can therefore haul away all sizes of furniture – from the petite to the very large. Junk King takes it all, including:
- Sofa beds
- Filing cabinets
- And more!
Because many of these furniture items can be recycled or repurposed, Junk King New Orleans does its best to recycle wherever possible. Mattresses actually contain potentially harmful volatile organic compounds that can harm the environment and, even if a mattress cannot be donated, mattresses can frequently have up to 90% of their constituent materials recycled.

Like recycling batteries, recycling electronics can prove a head-scratcher if you’ve never done it before. Junk King accepts and does its best to responsibly recycle electronic waste, such as:
- DVD players
- Video game consoles

Electronic waste is usually generated from electronics that have reached the end of their useful life. Although cell phones, for instance, are replaced every few years on average, they contain a lot of precious and semi-precious metals that can be recovered if recycled properly. A million cell phones contain over 17 tons of copper, 75 pounds of gold, and 33 pounds of palladium.
