We pride ourselves on being a full-service junk removal company that have the resources to safely haul away junk, even bulky furniture, out of your home and into the big red trucks. Consider booking your next appointment to have help with:
- Furniture Removal
We frequently separate items in the truck so that they can easily recycle and pack other items to dispatch at a nearby donation facility. It is all in a day’s work at Junk King Salt Lake City, Utah.
- Television Disposal and Recycling
Electronic waste – such as televisions, laptops, and CRT monitors – contain harmful heavy metals that should be responsibly disposed of. This is where Junk King Salt Lake City comes in. Around a quarter-billion televisions are sold around the world every single year, and this can create a lot of unnecessary waste and pollution to landfills if the old televisions are not disposed of in an environmentally responsible manner.We can recycle these items whether they’re working or not; Junk King will try to reuse or donate still-functional electronics in the Salt Lake City area.
- Yard waste
Yard waste is sometimes known as ‘biological’ or ‘organic’ waste. It includes all kinds of ‘organic’ waste which can be composted. Grass clippings, bushes, and leaves are all examples of ‘organic’ waste. We go beyond taking compostable waste by taking ‘inorganic’ waste as well; this includes stuff like gardening equipment and fencing.
- Hot tubs
Hot Tubs are one of those bulky items that are often neglected because many homeowners in Salt Lake City don’t know what to do with them, but once they are removed the sheer amount of space regained is celebrated.
Approximately 80 to 90 percent of mattresses can be broken down and recycled, but finding a new home is often preferable. Doug Wren, Junk King Salt Lake City owner has found that, “some mattresses can be donated, some mattresses can be recycled.” Donating beds and mattresses in particular are priorities because these items can do major harm in landfills but major good if given to local charities and others who could use them.
The philosophy here is recycling and reusing wherever possible. Doug Wren reports that, ‘we recycle, repurpose, or reuse upwards of 60 percent’ of residential junk. That means, for instance, that the electronic waste (e-waste) could wind up with local Salt Lake City charities and underprivileged schools rather than polluting the air and soil by festering for years in landfills.
Regular household appliances like microwaves, stoves, and water heaters frequently contain steel, aluminum, and glass. These materials can be recycled, and any harmful heavy metals which your appliances might contain can be safely dealt with. An HVAC unit, for instance, contains steel, copper, aluminum, and brass parts that can essentially be melted down to create new appliances, thereby reducing waste.

Doug Wren calls helping other businesses to downsize or remove old junk ‘a big focus’ and adds “we are passionate about partnering with businesses in our community”. The Wren brothers, owner of Junk King Salt Lake City, were in the business world for decades before starting their journey with Junk King in October 2020, so they recognize the importance of efficiency and getting things right the first time when it comes to working with other local businesses.
Junk Professionals that are insured and committed to excellence
Commercial junk removal ultimately boils down to two choices for businesses – whether to deal with junk removal ‘in house’ or hire a junk removal company to handle it for you. Many businesses initially opt for the former option, viz., handling it in house.
The problem handling and hauling away junk “in house”, while it might seem at first that you are saving money, it means diverting an employee from his or her regular duties of getting rid of junk around the job as well as placing the businesses at risk for asking and employee who isn’t insured for that type of work to perform a job outside of their role.
This brings us to the other option of hiring a junk removal company to handle commercial junk removal for you. Junk King Salt Lake City will come in the ‘big red trucks’ to remove cumbersome, bulky items and do all of the heavy lifting for you.
Our commercial junk removal services come in handy for local businesses looking to get rid of old equipment or property managers hoping to get a space ready for the next renter. The US Census Bureau reports that nearly one-fifth of renters relocate annually, so there’s a decent chance this regular turnover will mean that you will need commercial junk removal in any given year.

Many businesses are confronted with this situation – there’s such a sudden inundation of large items after a move or renovation that they’re pushing or exceeding the limits of the commercial trash bins. Scrap metal or broken pieces of office equipment might not be eligible for selling off. In that case, by far the best option is getting us to come to your property or workplace and take it off your hands.
Partnering With Salt Lake City Businesses in “Going Green”
A lot of commercial use equipment is actually made from metal that can be recycled. Scrap metal could be anything aluminum and aluminum alloys to copper, gold, nickel, silver, tin, lead, and zinc. Although gold might sound like the ‘odd man out’ in that list, it is actually a periodic element and used in many electronics. Lead is used in electronics as well, and it is best to keep that out of landfills!
Doug Wren from notes that, ‘Junk King Salt Lake City does take a lot of e-waste‘ and ‘that’s the worst stuff to send to the landfills‘. But how do we partner with businesses who have shared values in green junk removal? The process works like this, according to Doug Wren: ‘we have a bin in our warehouse dedicated to e-waste, and every week another company takes all of this e-waste metal from us to recycle…we store it until we have enough of a truckload‘.
Beyond metal, Junk King also takes construction debris, works with restaurant owners in cleanouts, as well as Salt Lake City’s Realtor in foreclosure cleanouts, etc. If you are a business and need your space turned around quickly, the Salt Lake City professional team can haul it off.
