123JUNK’s Commitment to Helping Its Community

When owner Collin Wheeler founded 123JUNK, he did so with a mission in mind. Not only did he establish his three-step disposal process as the heart of his business, he created a three-fold company philosophy of Core Values that is its soul.

  1. The first Core Value is the Culture of Excellence where every employee is trained to provide a “wow” experience for clients.
  2. Second is the Environmental Stewardship mission that encompasses the Donate – Recycle – Dispose initiative.
  3. The third Core Value is 123JUNK’s Deep Community Ties commitment.

Deep Community Ties are Important

One way to create deep communities ties is by giving. You will often see 123JUNK present at community events, or volunteering its trucks and manpower to support area organizations like nonprofits or local Chamber of Commerce events. “Our involvement not only shapes the personality of our business, in return, we hope to shape the success of our community,” Collin said.

123JUNK also includes a model to try to benefit as many people in the community as possible. By donating household goods, furniture, clothing and other reusable items from pickup jobs to local charities rather than sending it all to the landfill, they are able to help these organizations raise money and distribute items to those who need them.

“We choose the charities we work with very carefully in order to work with those who better our own community,” Collin explained. The main charities 123JUNK works with include A Wider Circle, Pender ReGift Thrift Store and Habitat for Humanity ReStores, among others. These charities raise money through the sale of donated items that is used to help those in need, or sometimes provide items free of charge for qualifying families located within the community.

Getting Employees on Board

“Our challenge is how to communicate our vision to every member of our staff,” Collin said. “I believe that if you don’t see the end game, you can sometimes lose touch with why you are doing what you’re doing in the first place.”

Just enter the 123JUNK offices and you will see the company’s Core Values mounted for all to see on a daily basis. It is a philosophy under which the company was born, and through which it profits both 123JUNK and its deep community ties.

Create Your Own Deep Community Ties

When you use 123JUNK, you also create your own deep community ties, as items which no longer hold value for you now become a lifeline for someone in need.

As you can tell, we’re passionate about what we do. Our involvement not only shapes the personality of our business, in return, we hope to shape the success of our community – one load at a time.
