Saving the Planet One Lug at a Time
Ever since Josh lugged and recycled his first refrigerator as a young college student, he has felt driven to help preserve the planet. Protecting the environment has always been a core value at The Junkluggers. Rather than drive to the dump with whatever he put into the back of his mom’s Dodge Durango (in the days before The Junkluggers had a whole fleet of bright green trucks), Josh always made sure to donate or recycle as much as he could.

Thomas Edison once said: “To invent, you need a good imagination and a pile of junk.”
At The Junkluggers, we have a genuine passion for customer service and a genuine passion for the environment. We do our best to support our local communities while protecting the planet. We have a rich history of donating furniture to formerly homeless veterans, toys to children’s museums, and truckloads of shoes to those without. Our company is always looking for more local charities to partner with. Our junk removal professionals are trained to see possibility where others see junk, and to have the familiarity and know-how to make sure your junk reaches its potential!
Recycling – Passive Philanthropy
At The Junkluggers, we realize that one’s junk may be another’s treasure, but there are other instances when junk is simply junk and we are unfortunately unable to donate that junk on your behalf. What then happens to the items? Where do they go? In most cases, we are able to recycle your items. Although this would not be a direct tax benefit to you, you can rest assured that you’re not contributing to increased pollution and waste since we were still able to keep your items out of the landfill.
Recyclable materials include, but are not limited to a variety of:
Even complex items, such as electronics, can be stripped apart to reveal components for reuse, so even your old TVs, computers, and other devices can be recycled. In many ways, recycling is just as philanthropic as direct donations because these items are converted into usable materials that help reduce the environmental footprint caused when fresh resources are harvested for new products. So, next time you’re out buying something new, consider that perhaps you’re being revisited by a favorite item from the past!
