123JUNK recycles or donates about half of what it hauls, which means that our crews are directly recycling and donating approximately half of the volume in a given truckload of items. However, in a lot of cases in the Northern Virginia area, companies will claim percentages as high as 90%.
How do they pull that off?
Junk Removal is becoming a bigger and more competitive business every day. The bigger and more competitive it becomes, the more significant numbers become in the success of a junk removal company.
There are three numbers that are most significant: price, volume, and disposal percentages.
I really think, with a little bit of TLC, someone could fix it up and use it for a long time. If you operated the phones at 123Junk for a week, you might hear it a dozen times. The phrasing may change, but the sentiment is always the same.
Even though “junk” is in the name of our business, people sometimes have very high expectations about what we can do with a used piece of furniture. Maybe it is because we tell our customers that we make every effort to donate items (we do), or that about half of the items we collect as a company are either recycled or donated to charity (they are).
