123JUNK is Taking Over Maryland!!

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but 123JUNK is really growing in Maryland, especially around the I-495 and I-270 corridor. From a company starting in Virginia in 2008, we’ve expanded our territory quite a bit. I wouldn’t be surprised if you saw one of our big red trucks on the road today.

When we opened our Maryland location a couple of years ago, we thought it might take some time to grow and become known, but boy-oh-boy, we were wrong. The phone hasn’t stopped ringing since. Marylanders heartily welcomed 123JUNK as their junk removal company of choice in cities including Bethesda, Potomac, Chevy Chase, Silver Spring, Gaithersburg, Montgomery Village, Rockville and more.

From the feedback and letters we receive, Marylanders appreciate our level of professionalism and attention to detail, not to mention the courteous service, from the first phone call to the last pickup. They even tell us they’re surprised that we’re a local company and not a franchised system. We must be doing something right!

Perhaps it’s our core values that keep us on track. When we founded the business we wanted to run it as if we were the customers. We thought long and hard about how we would want to be treated as customers and make it a point to train everyone at our company with the same philosophy. We want you to have a safe and enjoyable experience with us every time.

Thank you Maryland for supporting 123JUNK. We’re glad to be part of your community.

The Best Home Repairs to Make in The Summer

The amount of construction debris 123JUNK has hauled away this summer is a good indicator that lots of people use the warmer months to make home repairs, remodel or install a new outdoor living space. Here are some of the best projects to tackle this summer.

Repair the Roof

Use the summer months to replace shingles, broken or missing tiles, or the entire roof. Leaks, sagging gutters and chimney cracks should also be repaired this time of year.

Replace Siding

Your siding is designed to protect and insulate your home as well as provide an aesthetic beauty. Make sure it is free of insects and in good shape after summer thunder and hailstorms and use the summer months to replace or upgrade it.

Remove Rotted Woodwork

Repair or replace rotted woodwork around window sills and sashes.

Haul Away Yard Debris

Ensure your home’s safety by removing dead or damaged trees. Haul away broke limbs and other storm debris.

Add Insulation

Lower your cooling and heating costs with insulation in the attic or between the siding and your walls.

Clean Out the Shed

Most people’s outdoor buildings could use a good cleaning. Empty the entire shed, sweep it out, and only replace the items that you really use. Call 123JUNK to haul away the rest.

Remove Outdated Play Items

If you have an old swingset, rotting picnic table or an above-ground pool you never use, remove them. Your yard will look better and you’ll have more room for the things you do like and use.

Add a Deck

Summer is the perfect time to add that deck our outdoor patio you’ve always wanted. Screen in a porch or add a gazebo.

Replace a Driveway

If your old driveway is cracked, damaged or unsightly, replace it with a new one in paving, stone or concrete.

When you’re cleaning up after construction projects in Virginia, Maryland or DC, there’s no need for you to go to the dump. If you have debris, large objects, or downed branches, call 123JUNK. Our uniformed professionals will be glad to clear away these items and haul them off in our big red trucks for you.


What’s Junk Got to Do With It?

We decided when we started 123JUNK to espouse a three-point initiative that includes: Donate – Recycle – Dispose in order to help protect our fragile environment. What you might consider junk could just be mucking up our earth—but it doesn’t have to.

History of Environmental Protection

Some of the statistics about waste are shocking. According to Duke University’s Center for Sustainability & Commerce, “Approximately 55% of 220 million tons of waste generated each year in the United States ends up in one of the over 3,500 landfills.” They go on to report than municipal waste landfills account for 22% of methane emissions.

How 123JUNK Solves the Problem 

By culling out items that can be reused in some way, 123JUNK greatly limits the volume of items we take to the landfill. Reusable items like furniture, household goods, clothing and toys are made available for our charitable partners who return them to families who could use them. Repurposable materials like metals, paper and electronic components are taken to a local recycling center. And only then do we take whatever is left over to the dump.

Although we cannot solve all of the world’s problems, we are doing our little bit here at home. If you’re in Maryland, Northern Virginia or Washington D.C. and would like to “join our cause” and donate your unwanted goods or schedule yard waste pickup, please contact 123JUNK. We’ll be glad to schedule one of our big red trucks to come to your home or business.

What’s junk got to do with it? Everything, to us.


123JUNK Can Help With Summer Storm Cleanup

Summer storms can sometimes wreak havoc on our lawnscapes, breaking branches, downing trees, crushing outdoor furniture or littering the yard with debris. What was a beautiful landscape now becomes a disaster zone.

In our area recently, we have been plagued with thunderstorms, hailstorms and even a derecho, and as the pictures on the local TV station testify, there is plenty to clean up.

Local authorities discourage people from tossing yard waste, damaged furniture, water-damaged carpet, or loose debris in with their regular trash items. Rather, they encourage you to gather items into a pile for pickup. If your city does not provide pickup call 123JUNK. With our oversized dump trucks, 123JUNK can load and haul away large loads of debris, damaged furniture or lawn toys and equipment, recycling items when we can. You simply have to point us to the pile.

We do not, however, provide tree services. Any large trees, downed or dangerous trees should be serviced by a licensed tree contractor. Do not attempt to remove trees or branches that have become entangled in electrical wires.

Municipalities and community HOA requirements request that storm cleanup to occur shortly after damage is done in order to maintain cleanliness and sanitary standards. Besides, you’ll feel better once your yard is back to a favorable condition.

Just remember, you don’t have to do it alone. You have 123JUNK to help.
