What Is Junk Removal?

What Is Junk Removal?

Before we can adequately define “junk removal” we must consider what each word means.

Junk (n.) – (1) any old or discarded material, as metal, paper, or rags, (2) anything that is regarded as worthless, meaningless, or contemptible; trash.

Removal (n.) – (1) the act of removing, (2) change of residence, position, etc. (Source:

Although the junk definition is correct, it’s only partially true. You might have donatable items, still in great condition, which can be recycled reused and otherwise redistributed. (i.e. Goodwill, Habitat ReStore, etc.).

Here’s where the removal comes in: We’ll take away ANYTHING non-hazardous from your property (home, office or even a plot of land). Our hunks will go in and provide the labor*, loading and disposal associated with the removal of the items.

Our bright orange trucks are designed to hold your items whether total junk or still usable items (like furniture) and take them to one of our redistribution resources. We reuse, recycle and redistribute over 65% (and sometimes more) of items we get on jobs.

Unfortunately some items end up in the landfill but we are on a constant mission to divert as many materials as possible.

So just to review, junk removal is the act of removing items you don’t want from your property.

Anytime you’re cleaning, clearing space and getting fed up with “junk”, we hope you consider College HUNKS Hauling Junk your green disposal partner.

We’ll ensure your items are dealt with in the most environmentally responsible methods available.
