Moving And Junk Removal Franchise Is An Eco-Friendly Business Solution

May 18, 2015

College Hunks Hauling Junk franchises make ‘going green’ look good as they boost recycling while reducing landfill load in communities

Home and business owners admit that while they’d like to be more environmentally friendly, sometimes it’s just too hard. But when they partner with a College Hunks Hauling Junk moving and junk removal franchise, that task becomes much easier. The problem of what to do with an entire office full of no-longer-needed furniture, or a refrigerator that works fine but is being replaced, is solved with a single phone call.

“Everyone knows that recycling is far better for the environment than just dumping everything into a dumpster and sending it to the landfill, but people don’t have the resources to repurpose that old sofa or television,” says Jason Killough, franchise developer. “College Hunks Hauling Junk franchise owners do have the resources, however, and so they can step in as a trusted partner to help the client declutter and also reduce landfill traffic.”

Providing environmentally sound solutions

Thanks to its relationships with Goodwill operators in many communities (one of which even owns a College Hunks Hauling Junk franchise), more than 70 percent of items picked up by a College Hunks Hauling Junk moving and junk removal franchise are repurposed.

“In addition to our strong partnership with Goodwill, we also continue to enter into agreements with other nonprofits who handle e-waste, paper and metal recycling,” Jason says. “So whether it’s that old dining-room set someone wants to be rid of, or an office full of outdated desktop PCs and printers, we don’t just haul it away — we help it find a second life.”

Making green look good — and easy

Many customers ask what happens to their items after pickup, and they are pleased to learn they are helping their environment with their choice of moving and junk removal franchise. In fact, the word’s gotten around so much about College Hunks Hauling Junk’s pro-environment stance that it’s become a selling point in and of itself.

“Our franchise owners tell us that they were at a Goodwill location, or a community recycling day, and heard about our focus on diverting reusable goods and materials from landfills,” Jason says. “The fact that we don’t have to create these partnerships, but do so, says a lot to people. They want a service, but they also want to engage with a partner who cares about the community, now and in the future. With College Hunks Hauling Junk they get that, and it really sets us apart.”
