About Junk King

Junk King was founded from a garage in 2005 by two friends in San Carlos, CA. The idea was simple, offer great customer service and recycle more than the other guys.

Junk King is the #1 rated junk removal service in North America. With over 90 franchises in 26 states and Canada, we are the 2nd largest junk removal company in the world. The Company pioneered recycling based junk removal from a garage in the SF Bay area, and has continued its focus on eco-friendly hauling.

Junk King’s rapid growth is fueled by its recycling-based junk removal model and world class customer service.

In 2014, Junk King was the highest ranked customer service organization in North America, with more promoters and fewer detractors than any other company in the United States!

Junk King’s goal has always been to reinvent the sector by developing a technology driven business management franchise in a traditionally low-tech sector. We are a premier white collar business system in a large, fragmented blue collar industry.

Having already launched 65 franchises in the US and Canada, Junk King is a dynamic brand that is well-positioned for sustainable growth for years to come.

Keys to the Kingdom

Junk King’s business system is based a handful of core principles that enable us to outperform the competition and build market share rapidly.


We are green and going greener! We recycle as much as possible of each and every job, up to 60% on average. Our operations revolve around a warehouse based recycling hub. We pack our trucks to sort recyclables in our warehouse and develop local and national recycling relationships to minimize dump fees and maximize recycling income for our franchise partners.
