Meet the King of Junk King Removal in Tallahassee
Kelly Miller wanted to get in on the ground floor of a promising franchise when he joined Junk King in April 2011. Kelly immediately hit it off with the two founders of Junk King and has since tried to combine professionalism and problem solving in every single job, no matter the size of the haul.
“It really doesn’t matter if it is a single item $38 job or a $380,000 job, the approach is still the same. You have to attack it. Control what you can and the rest will take care of itself. When we have finished the job, the customers will be left with a clean garage, house, office, or store and a huge burden will be relieved.”
One of the first junk hauls that Kelly Miller and his team was asked to do was memorable, to say the least: 35 truckloads of junk at 18 cubic feet per load. Kelly remembers it like this: “you had glass, tons of glass … old appliances, books, magazines … there was almost ten tons of sheet glass there alone.”
At that time Kelly only had one other employee working alongside him, but he found a way to get it done. “I’ll figure out a way to do it,” no matter what kind of challenge comes his way, says Kelly. Today, Kelly reports that he has “a very seasoned staff” and that “they have been with me for a while now.”
How the Business of Removing Junk Began
Kelly says that one of his passions is repurposing things: “I’m not one of those people who go out and buy something new all the time.” By using “just a little bit of creativity,” Kelly reckons, a second or fifth use for an older item can be found.
Growing up out West Kelly received helpful advice from his grandfather growing up. On horseback trips Kelly’s grandfather would “see a bottle and he would make me jump off the horse, go pick up the bottle, and put it in the fanny pack” to responsibly dispose of later.
Those lessons have stuck around as Kelly likes to be outdoors nearly every weekend. “The last thing that you want to do is be out in nature and run into a bunch of trash”, says Kelly.
Kelly does everything he can to keep nature beautiful and protect the local wildlife: “It’s always something that’s important to me.” He also realizes that part of the solution is “reusing and preserving things” so that they don’t wind up piling up in landfills or harming the environment.
Kelly also realizes, being a resident of Tallahassee himself, that this area is in the hurricane belt … and that can spell a lot of trouble. Severe storms and hurricanes can cause power outages and damage from fallen debris.
Junk Removal in Tallahassee is About Serving the Community
The owner of Junk King Tallahassee, Kelly Miller, is passionate about keeping as many items as possible out of landfills, because he knows the environmental toll that can take and he’s a resident of Tallahassee himself!
On many jobs, Kelly says, “65 percent of everything” that makes it to the recycling center from the Junk King trunk is ultimately recycled. “If you mix a bunch of stuff together” in the truck, Kelly finds, then it is harder to recycle later and help keep Tallahassee beautiful.
That’s why Kelly and his seasoned crew separate recyclable or reusable items in the truck before getting back on the road after every junk haul!
What It Means To Work With The Pros of Junk Removal in Tallahassee
Kelly Miller, considers his staff “very seasoned” and “very good” at what they do. “Everyone gets along really well”, Kelly adds.
Kelly inspires his entire staff with his own problem-solving orientation: “There’s always a solution. You have to figure out the problem.” The idea that every job has a solution is “instilled in our culture” at Junk King.
Your Personal Junk Removal Team
Junk King Tallahassee prides itself on taking just about any kind of junk, except for hazardous waste, which includes everything from appliances and bulky furniture to hot tubs, yard waste, and hoarder cleanouts. Since Tallahassee is in the hurricane belt, store cleanouts are also an issue:
“We cleaned out 57 stores in a hundred hours,” owner, Kelly Miller recalls. “It’s really rewarding to help Tallahassee in that way.”

Residential Junk Removal In Tallahassee
Junk King Tallahassee is a full-service junk removal service. Junk King is rated number one in North America for a reason – because it offers superior value, service and effort and is committed to disposing of junk in the ‘greenest’ way possible.
Junk King Tallahassee’s staff has handled thousands of residential junk removal jobs in the past, so they have the manpower and know-how to complete jobs extremely efficiently. Without a junk removal service, you might have to look into renting a large enough vehicle yourself, take multiple trips to the landfill, and worry about finding charities or recycling centers around Tallahassee.
Junk King prides itself on being a full-service junk removal company. The junk removal professionals at Junk King are experienced and have all 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 for:
- Furniture Removal
‘Whether it’s in the attic or basement … we’re professionals and we’ll take care of it’. We frequently separate items in the truck so that they can easily recycle, for instance, metal items at the warehouse and pack other items to dispatch at a nearby donation facility. It is all in a day’s work at Junk King.
- Television Disposal and Recycling
- Yard waste
Yard waste removal in Tallahassee can include ‘organic’ waste like leaves, grass clippings, twigs, prunings, old shrubs, and even storm debris. Our huge trucks can easily handle these kinds of items. Old fencing, dilapidated sheds, and wood waste (e.g., wet logs) can also be quickly dealt with quickly.
- Hot tubs
Hot Tubs are one of those bulky items that are often neglected because many homeowners in Tallahassee 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.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.
Junk King is passionate about keeping junk, particularly electronic waste (e-waste), out of landfills to keep Tallahassee as clean as possible. Some items left in landfills can release methane into the air or leach harmful chemicals into the water supply. Check out the specifics and interesting facts about e-waste here.
It is not always obvious what to do with large appliances that break down. These might weigh hundreds or literally thousands of pounds, so even if you can somehow move them you might cause damage in the process or fail to dispose of these items in the greenest way possible.
Fortunately, Junk King Tallahassee can handle any job, big or small, and takes just about everything except hazardous waste.
- And much more!
Residential cleanouts are required for a variety of reasons, including cross-country moves and foreclosures. Also, we handle hoarder cleanouts in a respectful way. Feel free to call, text over an image of the items you need hauled out of your residence, or email Junk King today to get started!
Commercial Junk Removal in Tallahassee
Junk King Tallahassee has the tools and resources to quickly remove junk from the workplace and get back to business as usual. The owner, Kelly Miller, says that the two most important “variables” for businesses of all stripes are “money and time.”
Junk King will help businesses in the Tallahassee area save both since Junk King is America’s number-one rated junk removal service and remains dedicated to providing superior value, service and effort.
Florida is actually becoming an increasingly attractive environment for business because it literally doesn’t have an income tax. That means that more businesses than ever are moving to the Sunshine State in hopes of finding a more hospitable home.
Because of the constant turnover and the fact that all of the businesses moving into Florida need to have a clean office space in which to work, Junk King provides a diverse range of commercial junk removal services to Floridians, including:
- Office cleanout
- Property management cleanout
A recent U.S. Census Bureau report found that about 15 percent of renters move every year. That means a lot of junk gets left behind by previous renters, and it also means a lot of headaches for property managers eager to lease the space out to someone else!
Many Tallahassee property managers are chagrined to learn that the junk must actually be cleaned out before a janitorial company will come in there and sanitize the space for a new leaser.
Junk King Tallahassee offers quick, reliable, and efficient commercial junk removal to property managers so that so that they can start showing and leasing the space vacated by a previous leaser or tenant.
- Storage room cleanout
There are approximately 40,000 storage facility companies in the United States alone, and this means that a lot of units are getting cleaned out every day. That’s potentially thousands of tons of junk that might find its way into a landfill if not properly disposed of.
Storage facility owners can hold auctions open to the public to get rid of some of this junk, but there is some junk that literally can’t be given away. Call or email Junk King for getting rid of discarded junk and items unsold at storage facility auctions.
- Office furniture removal
- Commercial scrap pickup
Sometimes local businesses need help removing large items, particularly items that are too large to fit within commercial trash bins. Large items or construction debris might not even be resellable in its current condition.
Junk King Tallahassee can pick up commercial scrap metal and guarantee that as much as possible gets recycled responsibly. That means that iron, steel, copper, and aluminum can be kept out of landfills and building beams, wires, and old plumbing fixtures can be repurposed or melted down at a recycling facility.
- Construction debris removal
- And more!
There are many large items that municipalities or private junk removal companies simply won’t take. That’s where Junk King comes in. We provide safe, efficient, eco-friendly commercial junk removal and can even help get items out of the building without your need to get them to the curb or parking lot first.
The U.S. Business Bureau said that 2.5 million small businesses chose to headquarter in Florida, according to a 2017 study. Small businesses are the engine of the economy, so any part that Junk King can play in getting everyone back to business is critical.
There are a ton of benefits to commercial junk removal, including the fact that you won’t have to lift a finger and it will actually wind up saving your business time and money. If you had to handle commercial junk removal ‘in-house’ then you would ultimately be diverting employees from more important tasks and potentially sidelining your own business for a few days until the junk was removed.
Businesses can put their internal human resources to better use by outsourcing commercial junk removal to a full-service junk removal company like Junk King. From a cost-savings perspective, Junk King’s ability to come to your workplace within a two-hour service window with the necessary personnel, tools, and trucks is a huge asset.
Hauling away thousands of pounds of commercial junk might not even be a feasible job to handle internally without the aid of a professional junk removal company. The fact is that your business’s workers probably didn’t sign up to carry thousands of pounds of trash down multiple flights of stairs, but that’s exactly what the staff signed up to do!
With professional junk removal you save both money and time and can be confident that Kelly Miller and his seasoned staff will responsibly recycle, repurpose, and recycle wherever and whenever possible. “Sixty five percent of everything dropped off is recycled.”
“That’s sixty five percent more in terms of tonnage of trash that’s being recycled versus going to a landfill,” says long-time owner, Kelly Miller.
As North America’s ‘greenest’ junk removal service, Junk King Tallahassee goes the extra mile as far as responsibly recycling the type of metals frequently found in old office equipment and office appliances. Junk King can recycle steel, iron, aluminum, and brass to enable local Tallahassee businesses the opportunity to do right by the environment.
